Earth Energy lines – observations and mapping with Rory Macquisten of Bristol Dowsers*

There is more to ley lines than we thought. A lot more.

Our speaker on Saturday 22nd November, Rory Macquisten from Bristol Dowsing Group, has devoted many years to researching ley lines, and with Bristol Dowsers, has mapped an area of North Wiltshire and discovered more of them than anyone ever anticipated. He has also been able to observe how they behave.

One discovery is that where ever the main ley lines cross over each other, you are likely to find churches both ancient and modern, and inevitably many ancient stone circles. Rory doesn’t claim to know why, and is still trying to find out.

“There are many different types and widths of lines,” says Rory, “and they are not static. In Britain they can be anything from just one pace wide, to 30 paces.” He has occasionally come across wider leys abroad, one measured 50 paces. They can cross oceans.

However, they don’t necessarily remain the same width, or in the same position. They can increase and decrease in size, and are usually 3D. Some even go up into space.

And they don't remain in one place either. In fact, Rory has evidence to suggest they are constantly on the move, influenced by the phases of the moon which, as we know, influences the tides at sea. Other influences include the stars, the heavens and simply the rotation of the earth.

Ley lines like people! They’ll often go out of their way - literally! - to travel through sacred places such as churches, temples, synagogues and mosques. Anywhere people gather to pray or meditate. He once followed a ley line through a farmyard, and was surprised to find Bremilham Church near Malmesbury, which he had no idea was there, founded in 1065.

Leys are often referred to as energy lines, and they love kids! They are frequently to be found going through children’s playgrounds. Rory mentioned several parks and schools around Bristol where he has dowsed and found ley lines. Sensitive children can pick up on this energy field, even without dowsing rods, and just feel that it’s nice place to be.

Sometimes a ley line is found to have shifted from its normal direction, seemingly to avoid a certain area. Rory showed charts and calculations around Avebury, where some leys had gone off route. Asked what would cause that, he suggested an act of violence such as human sacrifice, which is thought to have happened at Avebury.

“It is possible to repair them,” he says. “To move them back into place, put them back on track.” He pictures them as corridors of energy, and with dowsing colleagues, has been able to put them back in place as if rolling out a carpet.

Rory is currently researching how music can affect ley lines. There is a lot of evidence to suggest it does, but as a Geologist in Africa for many years, with the mind of an engineer, Rory takes nothing for granted, and waits until he has a strong body of evidence to prove his point before admitting to anything.
