On the weekend we got the opportunity to visit one of the wonders of the world. Stonehenge.
As one could guess, it was spectacular. This isn’t Wikipedia so I won’t go into historical details of how the Stonehenge came about or anything of the sort. But, I will point out some things I learned that I consider to be quite interesting.
Where is Stonehenge?
Stonehenge is in Wiltshire, 2 miles west of Amesbury in the UK.
As I was researching more about Stonehenge prior to my visit, I came across some very interesting information. Many people have said that the Stonehenge is built in the centre of many crossing “ley lines”.
Ley lines are hypothetical alignments of a number of places of geographical interest such as ancient monuments and megaliths. In simple terms, it is believed that there are energy currents running cross different parts of the planet. Back in the days people knew about these energy currents and their importance and therefore built important structures and monuments along them. They believed that the energy in those special places is multiplied many times fold.
Ley line across the UK
This is one lay line running across the UK. I believe there is also another.
Global ley lines
These are the major ley lines on the planet. The places where these lines meet are believed to be “energy portals”. There are loads of theories about these energy portals. Some say they are interdimensional portals, others say that the magnetic field is extremely strong there or that there is some kind of special energy etc. I personally have no idea. But I have experienced going to a place and instantly feeling “different” as if the place is special and just can’t help but feel good. So, I don’t know about the interdimensional portals but I’d buy that the energy is probably incredible in those places.
Getting a feel of Stonehenge
The thing that I think stood out for me most when I visited the Stonehenge was just the vastness of the place. The stones are huge and they are surrounded by miles and miles of sheer land. It’s one of those places where you go and you feel so small but not insignificant if you know what I mean. I got a sense of “something more”, I don’t really know how to explain it but it seems that in our day to day lives we see the world from a certain perspective. Usually, one that is quite, I don’t want to say boring but it is less than magic and miracles. Without getting too deep into things, we’re on a rock flying through space at unimaginable speed. We’ve got stuff built thousands of years ago that we couldn’t even build today given our technological advances. Surely there’s something more to it. Surely. But, I’ll leave that to your imagination. 😉
