There was something odd about last night, in more than one way. It occurred to me that the points I visited last night were all in a rough line. From the lake in Pendarves Wood and Carwynnen Quoit to Treslothan Church with it's well to the place I sat and looked out to Carn Brea (big hill). OK it is a rough line with a bit of a hook but it is still a line.
I wondered if it might be a ley line and I tried to look it up. It seems to me that studying ley lines is very, very subjective. Looking at pictures of them it seems unlikely, to me, that they would travel in such straight lines. I guess it is the easiest way of drawing them between their 'major' points but I just don't believe that being of the land as they are, that they would be so straight. In between the major points I would expect them to branch and twist and turn. They are the energy lines of the land, the blood and our veins and arteries twist and turn, so why wouldn't the earths?
I tried to find out if any of the main points I visited last night were considered to be linked. I did find a hint. A talk about Carwynnen Quoit and Carn Brea by the Ley Hunters Group which is part of the Cornwall Earth Mysteries Group. This suggests that a ley line is considered to exist between the two points.
As I sat at my first point I noticed that the birds were flying from or towards the sea. Looking at the map the contour line links where I was to my second point Treslothan. The land contours swirl hereabouts so I see no reason why the lake, quoit and church wouldn't be linked by the energies as they reach the bottom of the valley.
And then I found this link. There is too much in it for me, I don't have the background to get to grips with it, there is just too much and I have no experience in this area. Telluric energy? Unhealthy ley lines? Healthy ley lines?
I got enough of it to understand that yes, these points are connected but maybe not as I imagined. Maybe the lake is connected to the quoit by the river which flows along the bottom of the valley and eventually joins the Red River. Apparently energy tends to follow water. Either side of this river there are ancient settlements as it makes it way to the sea. I think I have walked by this river near where it joins the Red River. I am finding my map a little insufficient! Just not enough detail! And to many other details as well...
Anyway, I believe I followed the energy last night as far as the quoit and then I followed the energy of the water. I was happy and peaceful on the hill, at the church by the quoit and on top of the Carn but in the wood, I felt very uneasy.
I may make my own map of the area showing the features and post it and then some of you lovely people could maybe offer any ideas you have?
