"Ley Lines".

11 Years Ago

What are Ley lines, well one sunny day on the 30th June? 1921. Alfred Watkins the Businessman and Magistrate and renowned amateur inventor and Photographer come folklore expert, was visiting a place called Blackwardine near Hereford and stopped to look at his Map for places of interest, he felt curious about the place as a whole and noticed on his map lines that passed over hill tops through a number of places of interest and found that all of these points of interest were all ancient, then without any warning he felt a blinding light and his mind became flooded with images of these places thus forming one coherent plan, as the brightness slowly lifted from his minds eye he saw that over the passing of ancient time that the lines were all marked out by sighting marks upon the tops of each passing hill thus allowing the ancient traveller to travel in a some what straight line, each point or Lay as he later pended them were marked by experts from a long forgotten pasts to form track ways, thus formed in Watkins mind a whole plan of tracks, the Old straight track  system formed and used to aid the passing traveller to go from point to point in a way that would enable them to directly travel from place to place, each track route passed on from one to another at a time when writing and maps had never been invented.


From that moment in 1921. till his death 14. Years later aged 65. In the year 1935. Watkins explored and studied the lines of Ley and mapped all the interconnecting lines and track ways that flowed through the landscape of Britain, His original thoughts and papers were first published in a short book in 1925 called early British track ways and later by other written works on track ways, then in 1927 he published a book called the Ley hunters manual, since then many others writers have written and published other works on Track ways or Ley lines to the point that it is now generally excepted that our distant ancestors had a great understanding of the hidden pathways of earth energy and built their Spiritual and sacred sights upon the lines to mark each sights important, places like Avebury and Stonehenge and many more, it is now generally excepted that other ancient cultures across our globe called the world, from the Aztecs and Maya people to the many tribes of central American Indian to the ancient Chinese people who formed a understanding of similar lines and track ways called Dragon lines hat became the foundation of Feng Shui.


(�Feng meaning the Wind and Shui meaning Water�).


Given that Feng Shui is an Environmental Science and the usage and basic understanding of how the Earth Magnetic lines of Ley or Dragon lines interact with all aspects of our lives and how we also interact with the World around, it is a natural way of bringing balance and harmony to all that allows all to prosper and grow!


The Dowser interacts with the energy hidden within thus transferring and unlocking a natural born ability of extra sensory perception, thus the dowser and the chosen dowsing tool becomes as one and when and if the dowser pre-programmes their dowsing tool to search and interact with the energy fields that surrounds us all they can explore and find, perhaps also interact with the energy lines found below!


Given that lines of Ley or Ley lines are the actual natural energy roads and pathways that interlock and flow around the Blue and green globe we call the planet earth our natural home?


Ley lines transmit both positive and negative flows of electrical energy flow and in the passage of both natural and Historical time lock into the historical past and record of the Land below, from the beginnings of our know time �The Big bang� the moment when our Solar system and the plant we call Earth was formed the sum total of all original matter that was formed upon that long forgotten time still has valid natural form, from each electrical Atom and Molecule that was originally and made, the actual amount of substance is still the same!


All that is different is that over the period of natural historical time how it has been transformed and interacted with elements to be found around?




All living things that can be found on the planet Earth are basically of a Carbon and mineral water life form, thus when each living thing comes to the natural end of a given life span and Passes over or dies it slowly will reform into the natural elements that they were originally formed from. The Christian Burial write or marking of passing over uses the lines found in the Bible of Ashes to ashes and Dust to dust Earth to earth�, clearly showing man�s basic understanding of the natural way all living matter is absorbed and becomes something else, given that the basic rules of all living and natural Evolutions is the same and the adaptation of living form to the natural environmental condition to be found around, it is perhaps the same with all aspects both Mineral and Vegetable, a sort of mix and match thus slowly changing to the passage of time to become something totally different, Alfred Watkins surely had this aspect in mind when he originally formed the thought of the Ley lines and the Great straight line, track ways from the forgotten past, lines that enclose and surround us all for early man had a clear given understanding of this knowledge when they laid the original foundation for Spiritual sites like Stonehenge.


Ley lines and Dowsing, given that when you dowse you are interacting and self empower your set dowsing tools to lock onto aspects of hidden energy or thought, depending on the original thought or desire behind the search, even the kind of aspect you desire to dowse for will narrow the response you are likely to find, but when you dowse and search for aspects of Ley energy lines you narrow the search pattern to a number of different aspect, the first being what actually makes you feel that there is a hidden Ley line, what do you actually see in the ground and land around, what can be found on a Ordnance survey map of the land you are dowsing, is there a Spiritual site near by or other places that usually can be found close by a Ley line, what kind of line you might find hidden within the ground below, is the line a Positive or is it off negative flow, what direction does the line flow and what other aspects could effecting the line of Ley, from the natural flow of hidden or known river or stream or even the Sea or lake, is the ground dry or wetlands and is the land around you hilly or is it made up of flat ground.


Given that a Ley lines is made up of either Positive or Negative Electrical charge and flow and the fact you can find several different kinds of Energy flow, from a Ghosting or mirror and echo effect of a the line to the actual flow of parallel lines running in tandem, the lines will be seen to cross at some point and you will need to know what kind of electrical charge each line is made up of, you need to be able to dowse in a set way that allows you to form a grid pattern, two German Doctors named  Hartman and Curry came up with a grid formation and pattern that if marked out as you dowse in a pattern not unlike a noughts and crosses grid that will allow you to slowly form the direction of line of flow.


When you dowse using the flow chart method you will need to form an actual straight-line grid pattern, when you dowse using the grid pattern ask the basic Yes or No question to actual line of flow, using line and markers to show the actual type and direction of line flow.


By dowsing in this way you form a visual marker map firstly by dowsing a straight line to find out where the Ley line starts, once you have found the actual line it is then possible to form a direction of flow, from asking the basic question of Yes or No then locking in and dowsing asking is the line form Positive Yes or Negative No.


You can use coloured ribbons to mark the type of flow, from Red for Positive and perhaps Black for negative, perhaps using a different colour to mark the direction of flow by also using a Mapping Compass you will be able to note the actual Compass Row direction of each flow, from North, South, East and West,




W.           E.





Noting known landmarks and places of Historical interest, you can cross-reference your actual markings and direction of flow on tracing paper that can be overlaid to an actual Map; it is then possible to form actual track ways and lines of Ley.


Once you have clearly mapped the direction and types of the given found Ley line it is possible to dowse again for other hidden aspects that may actually affect the natural flow of energy, from hidden Archaeological remains to watercourses and other factors hidden deep within the ground.


Ley lines may in themselves cause actual imbalances to the ground around thus cause negative or sour land, if a building was built upon such land the souls living within would find their health directly affected in a most negative unhealthy way.


This is why the Chinese use Feng Shui to map and plan all aspects that would affect the land and the way a new building is actually laid out.


Ley Lines or Track ways perhaps go hand in hand in that early Man accepted the fact that such flows of energy actually had valid substance, they built many Spiritual sites to worship and perhaps enhance the flowing energy found in the ground below, in the passage of natural Historical Time Straight line track ways form to clearly mark the easiest route to follow the Ley lines from junction to junction, thus Ley lines are not unlike a huge Electronic Railway line directing both the Earths natural flow and the living Souls to travel to and fro!


When you dowse and search for a hidden Ley line you lock into the natural flow of the Earths Electrical Magnetic pathways, thus you can lock into the passage of a forgotten Time, perhaps also to a Time and a place yet to happen, given that both Lines of Ley and Dowsing are natural tools of Electrical interaction, both transmit and receive, the Ley lines transmits and conducts a natural Electrical flow of Energy both Positive and Negative, thus encircling the World in a Giant Electrical grid pattern that connects and protects all that live upon the Planet we call the Earth, our Planet is a living thing, both organic and of mineral flow all have substance and have locked within the actual sum total of everything that was and everything that will be, like all living things the World can and does become very Sick and ill, from Geopathic stress Syndrome to the natural inner flow of the earths molten core, the Tectonic plates that are sitting on top if not floating and crashing slowly towards each other causing the Earth to tremble and shudder, from the Moon and Sun that control our daily lives to the Ocean Sea and tidal flow and the rain that brings to all refreshing taste of fresh clear water, all leave a permanent mark and historical record upon ground that we some times build our lives and homes!


When you Dowse and search for lines of hidden Ley you will find clearly written upon the ground above and hidden deep below a sometimes long forgotten written Historical record of both all Living kind and our Worlds actual past.


So we of human kind must learn to read the Hidden signs and lines of forgotten Ley, interact and self heal both our lives and the Ground both above and below, so be thy self be true, take ownership of your personal actions, for our planet can not truly heal her self but at times does warn us all that live above to listen and learn and take action then perhaps live in Harmony with Mother Earth.
