Dowsing for leylines

29 Jan

I’ve begun working on finding Leylines in Northern Ireland. I’ve been doing some basic research and found that there are at least a few mother lines in the south. I’m wondering if their are any in the North? Only time and research will tell me.

Anyway, to get me in the mood I went for a dowsing session in town. I first used a map of the city centre and did some dowsing over it with a pendulum to see if I could work out the general areas that would be best to go looking in. I then went into town with my L rods and started doing some on the ground work. I went in quite early in the morning so that only street cleaners would give me funny looks. Here I was really just looking for any signs of any small lines of power at work in the city centre.

As expected I got some quite strange responses while dowsing near the two major Masonic Halls in the city Centre. I also got some strange swinging action near the city hall and the Linen Hall Library. Some of these might be expected. but what wasn’t expected was the way in which the Night and Day hotel and a few other travel lodge style places sent my rods jerking wild. Weird eh? If anyone has got any ideas why this might be, please share the knowledge.

    A reply from Holland.
    We are scientists interested in dowsing (physics)
    your story is amusing. If you give me your email, i’ll send you a report.

    I am in the USA, Washington State, and have been considering using dowsing to find a good place for an outdoor prayer mandala on my property. I am very new to this and just happened across your blog upon a Google search! Have you done any more dowsing since this posting? I’m very curious about how you feel about dowsing and what your experience has been overall!

      Hi Wendy,
      Yes I have done quite a bit of experimenting with dowsing, although much of it has been within confined spaces. I.e. hiding an object in a match box, placing the match box among matching match boxes, mixing them up and then dowsing for the one with the object in it. That’s quite a good way to get the knack, you should try it. But yes, dowsing for somewhere to build a prayer mandala is probably a good way to go about it. If I was looking to build such a thing then I’d probably meditate for a while, induce a mild trance and use my body as the divination device, walking around in the space in which I wanted to site the mandala. Who knows, you might even get a few visions of the thing as you go. Good luck with it. Let me know how it goes and how you go about it

        where can i get these dowsing rods, i think i’ll try the same experiment in antrim

        You can make them out of copper rods or else a willow branch. I like the rods better, but that’s just me. I’ve actually done quite a bit of work on mapping the lines, but I need to post the stuff on here. I’ll try and do it soon, I’ve been very busy recently.

        Hi I’m based in Belfast and doing some research on divining and leylines. I was wondering if you would be interested in helping with my research. Drop me an email and I can explain more. thanks

    You should start by considering Bill Drummond’s Soup Line.

    Hey Psyhconautic,

    I have recently moved a few hours away from Belfast after having lived there for the previous eleven years. I was looking into any occult layout of Belfast when I came across your blog. I regularly go back to Belfast as family and friends are there and would be interested in meeting up to exchange information if your up for it, if not that’s ok. As for now I would like to point out that both of the Masonic Halls are built on either side of the underground Farset river that runs up High St, maybe this may have some connection to your dowsing? Good Luck with your future dowsings, and don’t worry about the funny looks, if your not in a tracksuit your gonna get them anyway!

    Take Care,

    Hi all,

    How do I go about getting my house dowsed for ley lines? I’ve been having health problems for 2 years, since moved house, and after a week holiday, where my health improved. I’m now starting to think my health issues are due to ley lines, but unsure who does the dowsing in northern Ireland, please help?

    Many thanks,

      HI Jenni,
      I would recommend contacting a druid as they would be able to help with this. I know of a very good one who lives outside Belfast. He has a web site here:

      However, I would also look into natural causes before going to leylines. For example, You might look to see if you have unusually high EMF in your house. Or if you are located close to telephone masts our power generators. Sometimes these kinds of things that produce a high elctromagnetic field can effect the health of people who are sensitive to them.

        Hi Psychonautic,

        Many thanks for your reply. I do have a phone mast within 1/2mile of my house, how do I determine if this is the cause and nothing else? It was a friend who suggested the ley lines, as I was just puting it down to poor health but nothing shows up on medical scans, whcih is the strangest part!

        Thanks again,

    I’m really not sure how you’d go about this. I’d recommend speaking to a doctor who can give you medical advice. A doctor should be able to give you information on current research regarding the effects of phone masts. A bit of googling might also help so you have some material to discuss within him or her when you go for a checkup. He should be able to tell you if the phone masts could affect your health.

    The druid mentioned should be able to help work out whether it’s leylines or not.

    Hey psychonautic,
    Im currently a student in the university of ulster in belfast and I am currently trying to do a photographic project on Psychogeography within belfast’s city centre. A few books I’ve been reading mention this Ley lines and is something I find interesting. Is there any information you could give me about Ley Lines within Belfast.
    Many Thanks

    Very interesting blog…I am new to dowsing and still learning, but this information validates the reason to I decided to pursue this art. Over several years of research and traveling throughout North America I have noted the peculiarity of where Masonic lodges are sited and wanted to know why. Where things got strange is finding the correlation history of ley line convergences with history of serpent deity worship, carvings and statues, and serpent related native folklore. I closed the book on all this awhile, but a recent visit to Peruibe, Brazil opened it all back up to the point I figured I was meant to go there .
    Off the coast of Peruibe about 70Km is a powerful so called Vile Vortex; the area is also extremely rich in underground mineral content. The town polictics are dominated by three key Masonic affiliated families going back to it’s inception. Masonic symbolism is everywhere, even in he way the streets are laid out and is very obvious when you drive into town from the main highway. It is also a place very rich in serpent related places and native folklore. This area also has the lowest magnetic field strength of anywhere on the planet, so much that satelites with sensitive equipment turn power it off when they track through thsi area The world is truly a strange place. Keep up the good work

      Thanks For your reply Gerald. This sounds fascinating. Could you post a link to the coordinates of where you are talking about maybe using google, Maps? I’d be fascinated to learn more.
