I've just wasted ages trying to find one of my previous posts - without success- so here it is again, cos I think it's relevant:I think leys are a human thing. If you use a site as a sacred space they will come or form,if you abandon a site they will fade or vanish.
A friend erected a 'sacred sculpture' just beyond my garden and held a ceremony with the local pagans to energise it. Eventually, due to protests etc. the sculpture was moved to another site. One of the granite posts belonged to me, so my friend replaced my 'standing stone', which became part of the sculpture, with an old granite gate post. Dowsing for water on the carn i dowsed the stone with no response, later my son dowsed it also with nill response. Now comes the interesting bit... one night at full moon, kids in bed, I crept out and taking a stick, beat the stone whilst reciting the bit of the ceremony my friend had used (calling down the moon power, deities etc). I must say I'd had a cider ot two but still felt anxious my neighbours might spot this maniac attacking a granite post at night. At weekend I dowsed the stone and got an immediate reaction...fair enough, 'cos I'd done the ceremony - but it still astonished me! Next, James dowsed the stone independantly and reported a reaction too, but didn't know about my escapades. So, what has changed in the stone to "energise" it? Last time I checked about a year ago, I still got a reaction. Are we then responsible for creating these energies?Back to u Marion
