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:
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

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.
