We know about the main vortexes of energy in the human body – chakras, but I accepted quite naturally that Gaia, mother earth too has Chakras. How we have energy flowing through our body, the earth too has an energy flow that seems to be quite a topic of interest.
While doing the post on Sacred Geometry, I came across something interesting, Ley lines, and the following night I ended up hearing a music track called ley lines, it was total synchronicity. On digging deep into this matter, I pulled up some interesting stuff for you to take a look at.
What are Ley Lines?
Alfred Watkins spoke about Ley Lines in his book The Old Straight Track, he realized that old monuments, burial grounds, religious structures, monoliths all ended up on a straight line. But this phenomenon was noticed in all cultures, during different time frames and manifested themselves in different ways.
But apart from being a straight line that one can draw from the time of discovery in 1920, ley lines have something perhaps mystical about them. Ley lines have been associated with energy fields, UFOs, spirits, shamanic landscapes and more!
Paul Devereux, the Author of Shamanism and the Mystery Lines: Ley Lines, Spirit Path has some interesting information on his site with regards to Ley lines and how they are intertwined with ancient Indian Spirit Lines and Shamanic Landscapes.
According to the author, “Hopewell Indians built geometrical earthworks covering many acres, along with straight linear features which seem to have been ceremonial roadways. In 1995, archaeologists announced the discovery of a 60-mile-long, dead straight Hopewell ritual road connecting earthworks at Newark with the Hopewell necropolis at Chillicothe.”
What makes it even more interesting is grounds bearing Geoglyphs like the Nazca lines occurred where Shamanic tribes were present, mostly Shamanism based on hallucinogenic plants. An anthropologist Marlene Dobkin de Rios was the first one to notice this coincidence, noting that all these native hallucinogens promote the sensation of spirit flight, the “out-of-body experience” Dobkin de Rios felt that the mystery lines were associated with this aerial journey, the ecstatic centerpiece of the shamanic experience.
The spirit lines of the Indians, which they used to transport the dead to the crematorium, and the shamanic landscapes all tend to use straight lines, it goes deeper than that, Ley lines have been used over forests, difficult landscapes where curved lines would have been easier to use. Another interesting thing is how some of the ley lines coincide with the earth grid, earlier I mentioned about the Earth’s chakras.
How the human body has seven major chakras, similarly, the earth has energy lines which some call ley lines and at certain points at equidistant around the earth they form energy vortexes.
I found a session with Hugh Newman, author of Earth Grids, the secret patterns of Gaia’s sacred sites, where he talks about the positioning of the energy vortexes and how this pattern is not just found on earth, but the sun too exhibits a similar pattern with major solar activity showing up in the same positions. The video takes you through some interesting aspects of the earth and you will come across a connection with sacred geometry.
Here’s something I came across while reading about leys in this thread on the Pyramids of Giza and Stone Hedge’s global ley. When straight lines are drawn through the center of these structures, as well as any two other important structures you find either megaliths or other architecture of significance at the intersection of these ley lines.
Feel like doing some ley connections on Google Earth, go ahead and let us know if you come across anything.
