In 1921, an amateur archaeologist by the name of Alfred Watkins discovered that there were various locations of importance around the world which could be connected with a straight line. Among these locations are Stonehenge, crop circles, holy cathedrals, pyramids, and other such sites. Besides connections to structures of a man-made nature, these lines are also said to lie beneath the surface between the tectonic plates of the Earth.
As with anything of a paranormal nature, there are skeptics who believe that there is nothing to the concept. For those who believe however, it is thought that the underground ley lines emit electromagnetic energies as well as radiation. These lines, and their junctions are said to be power points on our planet…areas at which mysterious things happen and spiritual energy is at its strongest. There are many theories as to the meaning and capabilities of these lines.
There are said to be ones which emit positive energy and others which are more negative, and that this has an impact on human beings. It is also said that even a positive ley line can have too much of an energizing effect on someone if they are right on top of it for too long. Some believe that ley lines are part of a planetary energy system which either attracts or is used in some way by extraterrestrials. Some of the lines are said to have healing properties.
As you can see, it is a broad subject with just about as many interpretations as there are people. irregardless, it is still interesting to find that many places which are surrounded with mystery could be connected in a straight line. We, as humans try to make sense of things and to draw connections in order to see a bigger picture. Some of what we hypothesize may turn out to be true, and perhaps none of it will. In the meantime, it makes for some interesting research and conversations.
