Ley lines are lines of energy theorized to be underneath the Earth. They are most famously known to connect famous landmarks and historic sites together with a straight line. Some ancient cultures and religions had some form of belief of the leys, such as China. Many people today and in history have also considered these ley lines to have supernatural abilities, such as healing and contacting spirits.
Chakras are best known through Hinduism--points in the body to focus on during meditation. The chakras and their locations consist as followed:
Root Chakra - base of the spine
Sacral Chakra - lower abdomen
Solar Plexus Chakra - belly button
Heart Chakra - center of chest
Throat Chakra - throat
Third Eye Chakra - forehead
Crown Chakra - top of the head
When it comes to ley lines, chakras are the biggest centers of energy where many leys cross over one another. Often, these chakras are located over well-known historic landmarks or manmade monuments. The seven chakras across the Earth are:
Root Chakra - Mt. Shasta (California, United States)
Sacral Chakra - Lake Titicaca (Peru-Bolivia)
Solar Plexus Chakra - Uluru (Kata Tijuta, Australia)
Heart Chakra - Stonehenge (England)
Throat Chakra - Pyramids of Giza (Egypt)
Third Eye Chakra - currently located near Stonehenge
Crown Chakra - Mt. Kailas (Himalayan Mountains, Tibet)
An important thing to address when understanding the ley lines’ Third Eye Chakra is that is moves according to the movements of Earth’s axis. The chakra moves every 150 to 200 years. Currently, it is located near Stonehenge, but next it is predicted to be located somewhere in Brazil. The stage in which the Third Eye Chakra remains in one place is also given an age name according to star signs. The next age–where the chakra is in Brazil–will be Capricorn.
Gates and high points are also center of energy where many ley lines cross over one another, but not as abundant as a chakra. High points are a degree lower than gates.

China was a culture that commonly believed in dragon lines or lung mei. These lung mei were believed to be straight lines of energy which dragons traveled along. The heart of these lines was thought to be in a valley where male and female currents–the Dragon and the Tiger–came together with a balanced force. From there, these lines would disperse over the mountains, valleys, and plains.
Over time, different forms of these beliefs spread. The idea of dragon lines was adopted by the Celts at one point, and integrated itself into pagan traditions and Celtic tales with dragons. They became what we know today as ley lines as Britain came to be. It is also theorized that ancient Egypt kept crystals in their pyramids in order to obtain some sort of energy or electricity. They supposedly did this because they were conscious of some form of energy within the Earth. Australia also believed in a form of these mythical lines of energy, calling them “dream lines”. In South America, shamans called these lines “spirit lines”.
Throughout history and continuing on today, many people believe that you can sense these ley lines and use them to your assistance. Some people believe that they have healing powers. This is one reason why people are attracted to Sedona, Arizona–to heal and meditate. It has also been theorized that your sleep quality decreases if you live on top of a ley. In history, it has been thought that ley lines were perhaps the key to contacting the dead or spirits.
The idea of ley lines has been preserved throughout history. Today, there is still very little known about them, and even fewer who truly believe in them. Understanding the key components to what makes up these mythical lines and how they have been thought of throughout history and today may help us understand the impact that they have on the world.
Fun fact: there is a ley line in Europe which connects several historic sites bearing the name “Michael”.
