Leyhunter: I am new to this and was hoping someone has some knowledge of the intriguing phenomena of Ley lines… I know they’ve been talked about in the North, suggesting that the Snæfellsjökull glacier in Iceland is a supposed meeting post of ley lines connected with the pyramids in Egypt as well as Machu Picchu in Peru. But how can I find them?
TheLeylineProject: To detect Ley lines you can use dowsing rods like one uses to finding water or minerals… Rods can be Y shaped or L shaped or you can use pendulums. The earth is divided into a grid pattern of different types of energy fields; these are called the Curry and the Hartmann field. The Curry lines, named after German physician Manfred Curry, run -45 degrees and 45 degrees of north, forming a grid where each square is about four meters. The lines themselves are said to be about 40 cm wide. The Hartmann lines are named after the German physician Ernst Hartmann. The widths are said to vary over the day and the moon’s monthly cycle (so-called earth-tides). Where two Curry lines cross, a Curry cross is defined.
To find these grids, it is best to use a compass and mark out the directions of interest. Once this is completed the energy fields are easily found. You can use these same principles within your house to find where the Ley lines are and make sure that your bed is not under one of these negative lines.
Leyhunter: Can these energies be harmful?
TheLeylineProject: Generally the Ley lines are thought to be good for you and it depends on how you use them. A cat for example makes use of the Curry lines, as they shrink the aura of the cat. This can be helpful for a cat when hunting a mouse or as cats tend to want to find hide-outs. These spots can however be harmful or pathological for humans.
Leyhunter: What about the electromagnetism and Wi-Fi energies?
TheLeylineProject: The electric magnetism and Wi-Fi are said to influence the human body, especially if these energies aren’t balanced right. In buildings the whole balance can be disturbed if high voltage cables and water pipes have been placed incorrectly from the ground. Leaving ‘ghosts’ or bad energies in certain areas, which are difficult to track and get rid of.
There are however several types of shields one can use to isolate or protect oneself from all kinds of energies. Allegedly, wearing jewelry can also help.
Leyhunter: But isn’t there some connection with Ley lines and ancient stone monuments?
TheLeylineProject: Yes, Ley lines are alleged alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments, “trojaborg” labyrinth, stone circles and megaliths. They withhold strong energies and are connected all over the globe. Churches built before 1750 have Ley lines running through them because they are built on land previously used for occult ceremonies.
Leyhunter: Thank you for your helpful information. Hopefully I will become skilled in exploring all these energy lines.
In 2010, artists Steingrimur Eyfjord (IS/NO) and Ulrika Sparre (SE) initiated the The Leyline Project, which was formally established in 2012 as a part of (I)ndependent People at Reykjavik Art Festival. The artists and their collaborators set out to research Ley lines, its theory, history and functions as well as their related sub-cultures. Realized through collective thinking, the project includes several other participants including curator Kristín Dagmar, composer Áki Ásgeirsson and polytechnic engineer, inventor and musician, Guðlaugur K. Óttarsson.
