A week has elapsed since the initial call went out in Monty’s message of Sunday 5 January 2014 to promote and work with the ley lines of the Earth.
The response to the initiative has been truly fantastic! Over 1100 messages of support have so far been received and more continue to arrive from all over the world. We have received responses from over 60 countries. It has been truly overwhelming yet very encouraging.
It has not been possible to personally reply to all of the incoming messages in the short timescale, despite the wish to do so. Instead, the time has been used to read everyone’s message, consider and take account of the reaction of what appears to be a growing international “ley-line” community which all of you are very keen to be part of. For those who asked specific questions, we will endeavour to respond.
Note that the door will continue to remain open for those who still wish to participate in what will be a mutual learning process. Please keep a watchful eye on the Foundation’s website for further information and updates.
As each message was read, it became apparent of the broad range of expertise that is already out there. At one end were those who knew little of ley energy but felt an enthusiastic urge to take part because of their inherent connection with the Earth. At the other, were those with a significant body of knowledge and practical experience in the field who have already been doing group work on known ley lines. This mix of expert ‘know-how’ and novice enthusiasm seems just the right blend to move things forward.
For clarity, to all those already participating in current ley work of all types, this initiative is not intended to replace, interfere or overshadow any of those progressing activities. In fact, it merely complements them and widens the scope at this important time.
One of the largest reponses per head of population was from The Netherlands. It was interesting to learn that an organisation there is already actively mapping ley lines! Other countries of note were Germany, Australia and Canada. Not surprisingly, the United States was by far the largest representation. Also, researchers from both Australia and France shared their detailed maps of discovery in both Ireland and England respectively.
The messages received also sought answers to a variety of general questions such as “how can I help?”, “what can be done?”, “am I suitably qualified” and “tell me more about ley lines.” Such enquiries will now be addressed in the remainder of this update starting with the latter.
A Primer on Ley Lines
Ley lines have become known by a variety of names in different parts of the world; salt lines, dragon lines, dream roads, fairy passes, spirit paths, Heilige linien or holy lines, prehistoric (megalithic) trackways and even pathways to the Gods. Whichever term you wish to use, we are, in fact, referring to the same article of the greatest antiquity – far surpassing biblical times. If an analogy was sought to describe what a ley line is, then one could consider them to be unseen “power cables” interconnecting a “store house” of psychic and spiritual energies that exist at sacred sites.
There is sufficient independent and irrefutable evidence to show the existence of these “invisible” and apparently “straight” lines that traverse the landscape and connect ancient sanctified places. Where two or more ley lines intersect, a power centre or nexus of telluric energies is formed. The more lines that intersect at these so called nodal points, the more powerful those sacred sites are considered to be.
At such locations, we could expect to find places of worship and religious ritual such as temples, stone circles, henges and churches. We may also discover places of funerary and interment like sepulchres and barrow mounds. Such sites could also be fortified with earthworks or indeed, with a castle or moat indicating that something is certainly worth protecting. The presence of issuing water is highly suggestive of a ley line, especially a confluence of waters. Where there is a natural abundance of water, there is also a profusion of earth energies. Ley lines are also characterised by trackway junctions, milestones, standing stones, summit cairns and coastal headlands.
Whilst the ley line is considered typically “straight”, the ley energies they inherently transmit meander and weave “serpent-like” through the landscape. Ley lines are thus essentially dynamic and driven by the Sun. A low elevation Sun, as seen at dawn and dusk, has a tendency to augment the size and energy carrying capacity of the ley line in comparison with its mid-day culmination. Hence, why the rising Sun is such a powerful symbol and the dawn chorus is awakened long before our local star ascends the horizon. Obscure the incident sunlight and you alter the essence and quality of the ley energy that flows. For the ley line itself is simply a “snapshot” of the marked ground track resulting from the passage of energy flowing at a given point in time. Other considerations affecting ley energy are geological strata, subterranean streams and even seismic activity. Persistant rainfall has the effect of altering ground conductivity which may inhibit ley line detection.
Ley energy can be perturbed and re-directed by intent, structure and terrain for it is essentially electromagnetic in basis. One of the best examples of this has been demonstrated at the Avebury Henge complex in Wiltshire, England – a site postulated as being the heart chakra of the Earth. Here the Michael and Mary arteries perform a “dance-like” manoeuvre with each other owing to the presence of the mounds known as Silbury and Windmill Hills.
Ley lines are notable for their generation of paranormal activity of all kinds. I wonder how many readers of Montague Keen recognise that Scole, in Norfolk,
England, venue to the five year “Scole Experiment” or “Afterlife Investigations” in which Monty was lead investigator, is situated within the currents of the Michael-Mary ley lines?
Yet, for much of the last two millennia, the natural potential of the ley line network of the Earth has been interfered with. In the last century, the system has been heartlessly overlaid and laced with a lattice of detrimental propagating energies which disturb the innate cosmic balance. Since the latter stage of the 20th century, the chaotic state of the ether has given rise to physical human disorders which has been caused by a geopathically stressed condition of the natural background. With practice, you will begin to recognise contemporary features within the ancient landscape that distort nature’s harmony. A great number of sacred sites too have been energetically altered, suppressed, obscured, and, in some cases, there has been an attempt to erase them altogether. The essence of their transmission lines have been fouled and denigrated. Is it not time to cleanse and honour these sacred pathways once again?
Many of you asked about an intended strategy to accomplish our goal. Having now sampled the consensus of the response and the range of expertise and willingness in our midst, it has been proposed to adopt two parallel approaches – one that can be expedited in a short term and will take the form of meditative release on one single day, the date and time of which will be provided by guidance. The second will comprise a longer term in-depth investigation as part of the greater understanding and reconnection with the Earth network.
This dual approach will thus enable many participants to take part in whichever they feel more comfortable and capable. They even have the opportunity to explore both paths if they so wish. Everyone is considered suitably qualified!
Mapping is an essential part of our latter strategy. It follows the principle set out by our mentors like Watkins, Guichard, Michell, Miller et.al. without whose influential works, we would be less well informed on the subject. Mapping out alignments accomplishes three important goals. First, it provides hard credible documentary evidence that will, in time, build a growing repository of information which apparently does not yet exist on the Earth.
By creating such a library of independent factual proof, we help to encourage those who are reticent of ley line existence to reconsider their own position on the matter. It will hopefully convince even the most ardent sceptic! And by making this library “visible” and available to all, we thus “disclose” the concept of ley lines and Earth energies. The more proof we can collect, coordinate and establish commonality for, the more the global ley line community will develop. Hence, the more “light of consciousness” imbues the ley lines themselves.
Second, our developing library of maps will enable others to return to these sites for a variety of purposes including regular and vital “maintenance”. Third and
most obviously, absence of detailed ley line routes on a local level potentially impedes, even prohibits, cleansing them of their toxicity. A route map enables visibility of ley line connectivities, their energy carrying capacities and angular directions within the landscape, not least what power centres they serve; all of these factors may be important to how the purging process is carried out. The task could be likened to unblocking a complex drain pipe system for which a routing plan is often essential.
So, mapping is, therefore, believed to be a pre-requisite part of the long term strategy. In fact, many of the messages requested ley line maps for their locality. Unfortunately, these are not always easy to find and more often than not they have to be generated from first principles using standard environmental maps and other detection methods.
Many have asked, “how can I help?” and “what can be done?” And , therefore, my advice would be to start mapping and become familiar with your landscape and their leys lines. It will take time to extract this information so it is advisable to make preparations as soon as possible.
A fair number of messages also requested relevant background reading material. Accordingly, a brief literature list is appended at the end of this update.
For those residing in Europe and seeking detailed maps to be going on with, I would advise obtaining access to Xavier Guichard’s works – Eleusis Alesia. This book, which contains a great number of detailed maps, is often difficult to obtain. However, it has been made fully available on the internet.
And Finally …
Veronica asked me to mention this information which she passed on to me in the autumn of last year.
On 14 January 2012, Veronica Keen had a reading with a psychic named Louise. At that time, I never even knew Veronica as we were not to meet until 28 August 2012.
However, it was during this reading that Louise said these precise words …
“Who is Mark? He is on the Earth plane. You will hear from him. Groundbreaking my dear. You have no idea. It will go worldwide.”
So, until the next update.
I have prepared a list of what I have considered to be seminal European works which I would suggest:
