This post is all about the ley lines that I dowsed in Paris. There’s quite a lot of information in here so I have decided to put a bullet-point summary here at the beginning so that you can see what topics I am going to discuss:
- Chris Hardy’s book “The Sacred Network” and the Decumanus Lines of Paris
- Finding the Luxor Obelisk using intuition alone, and its link with Kal in New York
- The major and minor leys centred on the obelisk
- The Jardin Des Tuileries and the strongest ley I’ve found yet
- Being guided to find a smooth stone
- How the Arc de Triomphe de Carrousel splits a major ley line
- How the Louvre pyramid plays a part in the line’s reconstitution
- The Louvre’s link with the “Axe Majeur” created by Francois Mitterand at Cergy-Pontoise
Have I whet your appetite? Great, then read on!
Sometimes life throws an opportunity your way and you just have to go with it. Such a chance came to me when work decided that I needed to be trained up and to do that I would be sent to Paris in May for a week. Well, what can one say to a chance like that? Yes, of course! I had just bought Chris Hardy‘s book “The Sacred Network” and been marvelling at the many pages about Paris’ ley lines. Here I was being given the opportunity to go test them for myself, first-hand.
Chris Hardy refers to two main lines in Paris which she calls the West and East Decumanus lines. I drew myself a pair of lines on Google Maps from her rough indicator points, and then I could refer to that later. There are plenty of other leys referenced, but these are the main ones that cross so many of central Paris’ main attractions, for example – the Champs Elysses, the Arc de Triomphe, La Defense, The Louvre to name but a small selection. What I wondered was, are these lines natural ley lines, or created by humans? Secondly I wanted to know whether they had any energy associated with them? That was all I was looking for. Time would be short, and dowsing in a city always has the possibility of attracting unwanted and often unshakeable attention, so it would have to be swift and to the point.
How to find your way in a city
From what I can gather from reading Hardy’s book most of the main leys of Paris seem to be centered on the Luxor obelisk (or ‘Obelisk of Ramases‘). I decided that this would be my starting point for an exploration of which leys were which, and which were important for me to dowse. The very evening that I had goot clear to do this investigation work Kal sent me a long text epxplaining how he had found the Genius Loci for Central Park in New York, and that it was found at….an Egyptian obelisk (see Kal’s Dowsing in the City post).
There was nothing else for it – now it was confirmed. I didn’t know Paris or yet have a good handle on the underground train system, so I decided to walk to the obelisk. The only problem was… I had no idea where it was! I decided to trust to fate and began to walk down whatever street took my fancy, so long as it looked like it was heading towards the Seine River, which I figured would identify the centre of Paris. It was a foolhardy and naive assumption considering the length of the Seine, but I wanted to see what happened.
