The art of Dowsing

Dowsing is a traditional way of locating Earth energies. Using rods, as above, pendulums, or your own bodies the changes in energy on the surface of the Earth, can be detected. The rods will move together or dip. People use dowsing to find ley lines, water, electric cables, minerals, in fact anything that sends out a different energy signal to the standard Earth energies at that particular spot. Dowsers often use rods as above, but people can dowse using twigs or a or all sorts of materials.Your own body can be used to feel the energy. A dear friend of mine began a life time’s fascination with dowsing when saw a waterboard official locate a water leak accurately with two old rusty strips of metal!

Personal experience

I was shown a high energy spot by a family member. It was in a grassy open field. As I walked across, my pendulum swung violently. More interestingly I could feel energy flowing up my body. A negative energy spot was pointed out, a feeling of great unease came over me as I stood on it. Spookily, the photos that I took of the energy spot would not upload properly.

A disclaimer

I do need to point out that the subject is very complex, and there is much argument/ discussion among practitioners and experts about what is really going on and what energies are actually involved. This is a simplified explanation that I am giving here, but one that will enable you to do your own research if interested.

Our Input

One of the things I have found most interesting, that never before occurred to me, was the fact that our energies contribute to the Earth energy final total. This happens in two ways.

Firstly, we are beings made at base from atomic energy. Our bodies are complex organic machines and our bio systems are continually exchanging energy, mechanical and  chemical processes are always taking place. Our thoughts are bio energy and may flow far beyond our physical bodies.

Secondly, our subtle or spirit bodies similarly may reach beyond or physical bodies.

Our Earth is an interactive system. We leak out or give energy to the Earth continually, as it gives energy to us. When people pray in sacred sites, prayer energy is absorbed by them. When people walk along the paths or pilgrimage routes some of their energies may linger. For example, Pat notice an increase of energy after Morris dancing had taken place.

 

How does dowsing work?

I am told that we can all dowse. Some people are natural dowsers and other people have to learn. There is some sort of scientific explanation as to why it works.

Scientists say  that what happens when people dowse is that ideomotor movements kick in.  These are muscle movements caused by subconscious mental activity – making anything held in the hands move. It looks and feels as if the movements are involuntary. The same phenomenon has been shown to lie behind movements of objects on a Ouija board, and I expect pendulums.

As  I understand it,what they are actually saying is that we are picking up with our senses these energy changes. Our conscious mind is not registering them. Our subconscious mind is detecting them and ordering the hands or body to react. All I know is that it does work and is used very successfully by many people.

An interesting  hint of a bigger picture

  Judith Lock informs me that some leys act like dot to dots, they connect points on the ground that map out an astronomical zodiac. These are called astronomical leys. Belinus for example follows Deneb (the northern cross). Many track to Ursa Major. Judith has an interesting website about the subject of dowsing, check out https://www.facebook.com/learn2dowsethewight/ I will look at the astronomical leys next time.

Aspects of Reality

1-It is possible to detect energy differences with dowsing.

2-We, ourselves, contribute to the Earth Energy fields.

3-Dowsing allegedly  works because of ideomotor movements of our sub conscious mind.

4- Astronomical leys give hints of an energetic, cosmos wide bigger picture.

 

 

 

 

More Earth energies

As discussed over the last few weeks, electromagnetic and gravitational energies seemingly permeate up or down from our magnetic core. There are points at which  these energies, due to geographical anomalies or cracks in the mantle,  emerge onto the surface and form so called ley lines. Lines of energy which can be detected and used.

The Earth itself has a charge, a Telluric current. This is a low level electromagnetic current flowing round the Earth. It varies in strength due to the underlying rock strata etc. This is said to be stronger along some ley lines. Human activities are said to contribute to it also. It is this charge that our ancestors may have harnessed to power their civilizations, or alien invaders used to power their technology. It is the charge that Nikola Tesla was trying to harness via his Wardenclyffe towers to give us all wirelessly transmitted free electricity, over 100 years ago, until he was stopped by his American big business partners.

Subtle Energies

There are also said to be other energies that emit from the ley lines. In particular, so called subtle energies. Subtle energies are said not to be measurable scientifically. There are also many different opinions and definitions concerning what they really are. They are supposed to be of higher vibration and finer than the normal electromagnetic energies. They are a hidden layer of energy in our reality.

I first heard the term subtle energies when looking at healing practice. Some people call all the layered energies in our aura our subtle energies. It was explained to me that all living things had an energy body which worked alongside and helped regulate their physical body. They receive energy via the chakras from something called the universal energy stream. It is this that healers are said to use to heal. In tuning up the energy body, or balancing the chakras, the physical body is more able to heal itself. ( I have done a lot in the past on this subject. Check out under my healing category for more information or clarification if you are interested). The question is then, are they just part of our natural world or are they a gift from the divine or designer?

These subtle energies are sometimes concentrated along these ley lines, which is why there are so many churches, temples and sacred rocks along them.

This is a very simplified explanation. I do have to say that the more research done, the more complicated, confused, and argued about the true story becomes. All we can say is that ley lines exist and can be detected. They seemed to have been used for many purposes over the length of our civilization. People may argue about what they actually are, but they do exist and have been of use, for good or evil purposes.

Aspects of reality

The Earth itself has a charge. A Telluric current flows around it.

Alongside the scientifically measurable energies that emit from ley lines are subtle, unscientifically measurable energies.

 

 

The game of life

Fundamental questions about our reality are, by their very nature, unanswerable.  Sometimes a random conversation triggers an unexpected train of thought, which leads to surprising insights. Someone asked me if I thought that everyone around us, in our reality, was actually real. As some of you may know, it has often been a suspicion of mine that some people are not.
After all we are at base nothing more than beings of light, holograms really, with only our consciousness making us human. Anything is possible.
Anyway, my answer was that I have always thought of our reality as an interactive video game. In our game some people are “real” and players and some are just cast members, part of the makeup of the game. All of our realities intertwine. We may be cast members in other’s reality.
What do you think? Also, how can we tell?

Gravity whirlpools and fairy rings -an explanation for some ley lines

A few weeks ago, Chris Harris explained that so called fairy rings were an indication of the presence of a gravity whirlpool, and that the variation of grass length around was an indication of the variations in  growing time caused by the stretching in time  around the vortex. He also indicated that there may be lines of electromagnetic force forming energy lines between adjacent whirlpools.

The thing to remember is that both gravitational and electromagnetic flows or vortexes are caused because of the unequal energy flow due to the unevenness of what is happening below the surface. Every rock or liquid or strata allows the forces to travel differently through them, depending on the nature of their chemical make up. Because the Earth is constantly rotating these different unbalanced currents can form into vortexes.

Anyway, this is his more detailed explanation of what may be going on. Chris said

 

“If planet Earth had a uniformly dense core (like a marble) – The density of space generated by its mass would also be uniformly less the further out its is measured. But below the surface the Earth has many areas of varying density such as rock and larva masses. This gives rise to such features such as fairy rings that appear on the surface. The surface of the Earth in encased in an ocean of gravity that is susceptible to ripples, waves and whirlpools caused by variations in the density of the mass below the surface.

 Time is simply distance divided by speed. It is the duration of an event. In the case of fairy rings (gravity whirlpools)-the density of space at the circumference of the circle is less than at its centre.  The length of the blades of grass (around the edge) therefore appear longer (older) as the space time in which they have grown has been stretched.   

 I think it is possible that two or more whirlpools could be connected by a straight line as areas of identicle space density (gravity) bleed into each other. Such straight line connections would be an explanation for ley lines.

Ancient peoples (un- blinkered by inflexible science ) knew of these portals and engineered gravity/leys to enhance their powers and effects. Such engineering would involve the construction of mounds and stones over fairy rings/whirlpools. ” 

Wonderful stuff as ever, thanks Chris.

The reality of Ley lines and dowsing

Judith Lock, who is an active dowser, researcher and teacher of dowsing and Earth energies, kindly commented on my post of last week ( The Reality of Ley lines).  With her permission, I am reproducing her comment below.

“A Ley is always dead straight, for it to be a Ley it must run, dead straight through 5 significant points such as pre medieval churches, tumuli, standing stones, long barrows, old beacon hills, old tracks and roads, sighting points on hills etc. Less than 5 points can be ascribed to randomness, for example you will probably find 3/4 post boxes in a straight line!

You will need to get an OS map, and plot 5 of the above points, but since reducing a 3D terrain to a 2D map either stretches or reduces points, you must always verify on the ground by dowsing. Google Earth with GPS helps.
People spend years hunting and verifying Leys, then there is sacred geometry, often there is a significant  sacred pattern on the ground (geo-metry means Earth measure). Sometimes there is a zodiac on the ground, linked to a constellation.
Whilst it is o.k. reading about these things, absolutely nothing replaces the experience of actually going and doing.
I post dowsing related articles on my FB page:https://www.facebook.com/learn2dowsethewight/
Some major Leys go for miles, some not. If you can give me a geographical area I can check.”

Thanks Judith, she has also kindly offered to answer any questions you may have about the subject at   info@wightweekend.co.uk

The Reality of Ley lines

Ley lines, seem to have been known about for 1000’s of years. Invisible lines of energy crossing our landscape, sometimes known a fairy pathways. They also criss cross the world in a grid, the picture above shows the English main ones. Many scientist are refusing to believe they exist and state they are not detectable.

Not visible to the naked eye, but detectable by dowsing, the giveaway seems to be the clusters of ancient monuments, stone circles and churches aligned along them. Churches, of course, were often built on the sites of existing temples.

 

What are ley lines?

The consensus is that they are lines of extra electromagnetic force permeating up from the levels of the Earth. What causes them, though, is a matter for debate. Some people believe that they are caused by cracks in the Earth’s magma, or by boundaries in the tectonic plates. Some people believe that they are part of a deliberate design of the Earth or part of a fundamental crystalline construction.

Chris Harris’s diagram last time also showed that minor lines of power where created by attraction between nearby gravity vortexes.

They are also known as spirit lines, dream lines or dragon lines. Everyone seems to have their own names for them.

 

What do they do?

The extra energies that they emit seem to have been used to enhance spiritual energies  (Churches, temples etc). There are also hints that these energies may have been used as part of a universal grid to power, now lost, technologies in ancient times. For instance, Far Eastern countries called them dragon lines, as the sky Gods (ancient astronauts?) were thought to fly in dragons (spacecraft?) along these lines.  Mythology says that the native Australians and Americans were shown where they were by sky gods. Native Americans used them in construction of their medicine wheels, and to contact the spirits.

 

Good or Evil?

Some cultures believe that these ley lines can be blackened or turned. The welsh dragon lines can be white dragon (positive) or black dragon (negative). Good lines can apparently be deliberately turned and used for black magic purposes. Witches covens can operate more powerfully if they use this energy, especially at node points where they cross.

 

A bigger picture

There are even more complicated theories, linking these lines to an energy system of vortexes and anti-gravitational vortexes, and even a cosmos wide energy construction. More research needed! Any input would be very welcome.

 

The reality of gravity and its vortexes – part 2

 From not being aware of energy vortexes at all, I now find out that they are everywhere and easily detected with basic dowsing skills. I cannot wait to learn these skills!

As mentioned last time Chris Harris sent me an interesting outlook on the subject.

“I think a particularly interesting manifestation of Earth energies can be seen in “Fairy Rings” . I’m sure you will be familiar with these circular patterns seen in the grass of urban Parks or even in the open countryside. The official explanation of these rings are that they are a fungus – but looking closely at them you will not see any evidence of any such blight. The grass seem to grow at a different rate around the circumference of the ring. The rate is an accelerated or slower rate than the rest of surrounding grasses. Also mushrooms around the edge of the circle seem to grow uncannily well. The circles vary from just a few inches to many metres across and are found all over the world. I think that the gravity field that extends out from the centre of the Earths mass (Generally uniform) – does have vortices in it coinciding with variations in the mass of strata below the earth. And so to view an open field is like looking a the surface of a lake upon which the gravity vortices/ whirlpools can be seen via circles in the grass . Gravity whirlpools give rise to fractionally faster and slower rates of time flow leading to a visual difference seen in the age of growth of grass around the ring. I think ancient peoples knee of this effect and erected shrines (like Stonehenge) – over the rings to amplify the effect. I might add that whilst I am not an expert dowser – All the rings I test with my rods so show a marked deflection when used over the rings. My local urban park is full of such features and I’ve been planning to map them over the seasons and years to see if they shift at all but as yet have not found the time.”

Thanks Chris. These seem to be the relatively small ones. The next question to be looked at is, what about the bigger ones, like the ones at Sedona  USA, for instance?

I have come across theories that hold that there are a number of massive vortexes around the world, that are nothing to do with magnetic or gravitational differences. Some anti-gravity. They may be  instead a factor of a crystalline formation of the Earth, and may even be linked into energy flows in the greater cosmos.

Also, on his diagram above  Chris marks ley lines. These are lines of energy that crisscross our landscape.What is their place in the big picture? How have people through the ages used these energies? More research needed.

The reality of gravity and its vortexes and space-time- part 1

As regular readers may realize, I am a generalist rather than a specialist, and I love interaction from any readers of my blogs and Facebook group and page. I often get clues, hits or different perspectives on the topic I am exploring. Chris Harris (Thank you Chris) brought to my attention a phenomena that I did not realize existed. That of gravity vortexes.

Of all the “scientific” Earth energies that I have looked at, you would think that gravity would be the most straightforward. It is the attraction between celestial bodies that holds us, and the other planets, in position around the Sun and holds the moon in position around our Earth, as well as keeping us on the surface of the Earth.
We deal with gravity every day and we feel that we know what it is. Of course, in practice there is more dissension about what is really going on with it than you would think. Is it just attraction between bodies? Is it a warping of space and time, as per Einstein’s theory of general relativity? Why is it relatively weak? ( We should not be able to lift our feet off the ground). It has been suggested to me that it is just another form of magnetism but that cannot be quite true as magnetism repels as well as attracts and gravity does not appear to do that.

Earth energies and the Northern lights

 One of the questions I asked myself when researching Earth energies was, is our Earth energy matrix random or planned? From the very beginning it seems that the latter is true. It quickly became clear that, on the basic level anyway, there seems to be a balance in the forces that allows life on Earth to exist.

For instance: we are powered by the Sun, it gives us heat and light. Our plants synthesize its energy to grow and to ultimately feed us and allow us to survive.  The Sun also protects us to an extent from cosmic rays, which would kill us, and dust from outer space via its heliosphere. It also sends out, as a result of its nuclear furnace, charged particles, a solar wind, which could also be very harmful to life on Earth. What protects us from them? Well the magnetic forces, generated in our core, which turn Earth into a giant magnet with a north and south pole. These form a magnetosphere, strongest at the poles, which intercepts and  interacts with the solar wind, causing what is known as the aurora Borealis (Northern lights) or aurora Australis (Southern lights). This wonderful display is a sign of a balance and protection for life on Earth, allowing us to exist on it.

What else will I find in perfect balance? Is it random or design?

More research needed.

Aspect of Reality

Is the balance between the energies of the Earth and  the Sun  that protects us a happy accident or a deliberate design?
