An Introduction to Ley Lines A brief history of Ley Lines On June 30, 1921 the concept of ley lines was first

introduced by Alfred Watkins. While studying a map when out riding near some hills in the vicinity of Bredwardine in Hertfordshire he noticed the footpaths appeared to connect one hilltop to another in a straight line. He believed that in ancient times, when Britain had been far more densely forested, the country had been covered by a network of straight-line travel routes, with prominent features of the landscape being used as navigation points. Since then British dowsers have linked the appearance of ley lines with underground streams and magnetic currents. After various investigations there are claims that the crossing of negative water lines and positive aquastats explain why certain sites were chosen as holy. These double lines were found on many sacred sites and later became known as holy lines. Two German Nazi researchers Wilhelm Teudt and Josef Heinsch claimed that ancient Teutonic’s constructed a network of astronomical lines, called Holy lines (Heilige Linien), which could be mapped onto the geographical layout of ancient or sacred sites. The Teutoburger Wald district in Lower Saxony centers around the dramatic rock formation called Die Externsteine, centre of Germany. Evidence of this can also be seen in China, where it is heavily landscaped in accordance with the laws of Feng Shui Neolithic peoples recognised that the harmony of society depended on the harmony of the earth force. And so in China, ancient Greece, Ireland and Scotland men built their temples where the forces of the earth were most powerful. Rosslyn chapel is located on the Roseline of which the Knights Templar were said to have had mystical knowledge of its significance. These straight-line networks can be found throughout the world stretching for hundreds of miles. Some incorporate elaborate spoked circles that include line systems within line systems. Straight lined alignments go back thousands of years, the actual name Ley Lines was first introduced in England. It was noticed that many sites and villages and other places of interest names ended in ley were found along the same straight lines. Hundreds of separate line systems have been uncovered proving there was nothing accidental in the way ancient peoples built monuments in harmony with each another, even over distances of hundreds of miles. In France investigators uncovered many line networks linking the main Cathedrals with places of interest. Some are placed to reflect several of the main constellations, with sites separated over hundreds of miles. The village of Alaise in the foothills of the Jura Mountains of eastern France was found to be at the centre of a line system that radiated out to include dozens of sites, villages and towns of a similar name through many neighbouring countries over distances that spanned an area of many thousands of square miles. Most astounding is the realisation that this line system must have been initiated and planned thousands of years ago. For many the geometric perfection of ley lines, the distances involved, in addition to the very remote period of their development gives a totally different view of the ancient world. It shows the ancients were capable of a masterful degree of geodetic knowledge enabling them to accurately build sites in full alignment, even over hundreds of miles. In many cases the evidence of ley lines is only apparent when charting them on a map. Visual evidence for ancient line networks is most obvious in the desert markings of Nasca in Peru. In the arid dry desert hundreds of line networks have baffled all attempts to successfully explain them. These markings scratched on the desert surface are said to be thousands of years old. They stretch in perfectly straight lines, traversing desert ravines and gullies for up

Other line systems were found in the Inca capital Cusco with a focus on the Temple of the Sun. Invisible or visible lines and harmonies connecting ancient sites and cities have always focused on their connection with areas of increased Earth 60 miles. It is thought that the lines facilitated some aspect of ancient life so that cities and sites built along the same lines shared a harmonic resonance. as this was how they originally came to be discovered. . It could be that the Nasca lines were to be viewed from the air. This concept allows for the existence of extra dimensions as well as the idea of passage from one time to another. One explanation is that this form of energy is now explainable by the String Theory.
