Spiritual, Mystical & Sacred Places

Earth Energies and Ley Lines

Earth energies and Ley lines have intrigued me and as such I have been doing some reading on the subject, many people ask what they are so I will share with you what I have found.

The term Ley line is a fairly new one, given in the 1920s by a man called Alfred Watkins, who wrote about “the old straight track”. He did much research into straight lines that were becoming apparent to him across the country side. Extensive networks that linked sight hills, churches and places of importance. Many ancient sites are built along straight line and networks that stretch for dozens, even hundreds of miles. Of course, there is much evidence to show that our ancestors were working with Ley lines long before the 1920s. Our ancestors were very aware of the earth's energy. Not only did they build their sacred structures on power spots but it also seems they were able to detect and on occasions somehow harness the path of these currents, amplifying the energy in some way.

In later times, churches were added to these lines, many built on ancient spiritual sights used previously by the pagans and so forth. The Masonic architects who built them were very aware of what they were doing as they were harnessing the energy that our ancestors had used. By not only using the former pagan energetic sites but by creating buildings that harmonized with or amplified the energy that was there.

Some say that these lines may have been ancient travel routes but often you find that these lines cover areas that would make the journey difficult as sometimes they would cross marsh land, or heavily wooded area, therefore making the idea of a travel route seem unlikely. It’s also said that many Roman roads are built on much earlier paths, indicating that the Romans made use of these paths, laying there roads on top to make them easier to negotiate, and that the energy that the tracks afforded them could actually of been a great help to them in there extremely arduous journeys. The Earth is actually a living planet, and like us, it has a natural life force that runs through it. This energy often runs in lines that were known and felt by our ancestors.

These lines are known by different names; power lines, earth currents, dragon lines (in China), and are rivers of energy that flow around the globe in a network. To me if you liken the rivers to our blood and veins, these ley lines are like our nervous system carrying currents of energy from one center to another. Some of these energy currents form straight lines (Ley lines) others form more complex patterns likened sometimes to spiders webs, some lines when plotted on the map form geometric shapes, which have been said to be of importance in the energetic way they are linked one in particular I have noticed what keeps cropping up is Reshel grids as documented and researched by William Buehler, which although complex are extremely interesting. Humans and animals are sensitive to the earth's magnetic field and are also affected when in proximity to these energetic grids. Any structures that this energy passes through will be affected too such as underground streams and minerals and so forth. If we stand in one of these areas of high energy, we will be affected both physically and psychically, in particular where two or more lines cross and the energies seem to be amplified. It seems that events in the area can also be picked up and retained within this energy current, for instance in battle sites, many seem to be able to pick up on really strong emotional energies almost like they are stored there. Some even say that certain areas on these energy grids can actually make us ill and they call this an area of geopathic stress. A Geomancer is someone who can read these earth energies and rebalance them where necessary. For example In China, a Feng Shui master would use geomancy skills to read the earth energies to find the best location for a house/ temple/grave to ensure health and prosperity and so forth.

The word geomancy comes from the Greek words geo (relating to the Earth) and mantikos (prophetic). It’s sometimes known as earth divination. The more modern understanding of it, is said to be the practice of identifying subtle energies in the landscape and how these are affecting us, both physically and emotionally. Understanding this allows us to create a more harmonious interaction between people and places.

One of the most famous Ley lines in the United Kingdom is the St Michael line that runs from St Michaels Mount and it passes through many sacred sites including Glastonbury and Avebury. One of the most compelling and visual example of Ley lines is the Nazca Lines in Peru. There are hundreds of lines here in the desert that has defied all attempts to explain them. The markings which are etched on the desert surface are said to be thousands of years old. They stretch in perfectly straight lines, over the desert for distances of up to 60 miles. It seems from the complex patterns of the Nasca lines that they were meant to be viewed from the air. This was how they originally came to be discovered, and the whole mystery deepens when we consider that this huge effort of labor that must have taken dozens of years to complete was intended to be viewed from an aerial perspective. Strange considering at that time as far as we know aerial travel was unknown. Also in his book “Signs of the Gods” author Erich Von Daniken mentions the existence of an intricate network of ancient Greek sites, connected not just through straight alignment, but also in the relationship of the ratio of their distances to one another, conforming to the famous Golden Ratio, as defined by Pythagoras. It seems our ancestors were highly conversant in both sacred geometry and earth science enabling them to accurately build sites in precise alignment, even when these sights covered vast distances. Highly skilled Geomancers-No mean feat!!!, considering they didn’t have the luxury of having detailed maps and even wonders like google earth on computers to help them plot these lines or create and view there aligned sites.
