If you think that our planet is just a dead lump
of rock - think again! The Earth is actually a living
body 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.
lines are known by different names: power lines, earth
currents, telluric lines, dragon lines (in China), songlines
(in Australia) and are rivers of energy that flow around
the globe in a network.
of these form straight lines (see ley
lines) and some are curvier or form patterns.
So what causes these energy lines?
have been debating this for centuries but, I feel, that
there are two main types: lines that are caused by physical
features in the earth, and those that are part of a
more subtle web.
people agree that magnetism and underground water play
a large part in the 'physical' lines. The earth's magnetic
field radiates out to the surface and both humans and
animals are sensitive to this. On its way from the core,
the magnetic field passes through features such as underground
veins of water, minerals and fault lines. These will
change it in a subtle ways.
we stand in these distorted fields they will affect
us both physically and psychically (and yes, we are
all psychic to some degree!). Some of them can actually
make us ill and this is called geopathic stress.
subtle energy web is a harder one to explain but I think
of these lines as being 'emotional' currents. I feel
these are a product of the personality of a place and
events that may have happened to it along the way.
Anyone who has ever stood on a battlefield and felt
the emotional energy held there will know what I mean.
course, the physical and emotional networks are often
inter-related and where two or more lines cross is a
more powerful place.
