Earth Lines and the Hartmann Grid

Have you ever walked into a room and picked up that awful feeling?   Something doesn’t feel right and you’re not sure what it is?  Why do you gravitate to a certain space in a room and not another? What makes your favourite chair your favourite chair? Is it the fabric, the cushioning or the place you have put it? Why when you enter a room do you automatically gravitate to a particular spot over another? There seems no rational logical explanation, no physical proof of grit and grim or bad decorating taste; you are pulled to or from one space over another.


The Discovery and Study

The interest in Ley Lines and Earth Lines seems to have originated in the 1930’s in Europe mainly in Germany and France. It was not uncommon to have only one or two medical practitioners service entire cities. Curiosity arose among these physicians when in certain houses, cancer cases arose with unusual frequency. The family doctor would treat the grandmother for cancer. The grandmother would die. Five years later the doctor would see her daughter come in with the very same cancer. In the meantime the daughter would have taken over the grandmother’s bed. You could perhaps see the genetic probabilities here. However other documented cases showed where a woman would bring her husband in with cancer. The husband would die, the woman would remarry and a few years later the new husband, sleeping in the same bed at the same place, would get exactly the same cancer as the first one. The physicians decided to seek help of professional dowsers.

The result was the discovery of harmful earth lines. Whenever the dowsers investigated the house of a cancer patient, they would systematically find earth lines of noxious intensity, either where the patient’s bed was or in a place where he/she would spend a lot of time, such as a desk.

A ‘battle of rational v nonsense’ ensued for a few decades in Germany where many respectable medical authorities tried to disprove the whole theory. Studies were conducted on thousands of cases – sometimes as many as thirty or fifty thousand cancer patients. Each time the results were overwhelmingly in favour of the existence of these harmful earth lines that the would-be detractors became the most ardent defenders.

As you can respect, these studies were not done on a whim. These ardent defenders were medical professionals putting their reputable careers and heads on the chopping block. They were not questionable healing mad men. It is widely known that to broach the subject of non-physical or paranormal phenomena is a very quick way to be excommunicated from the scientific community and never taken seriously again.


The Result

The almost unanimous conclusion to the study was: it is very unlikely for cancer to occur, unless you have been regularly sleeping or staying on a noxious line. Those harmful earth lines were found in the houses of nearly 99% of the cancer patients. In February 1987, the West German government started to invest millions into a research program to investigate the effects of earth lines on living organisms.

Of course earth lines are not the only reason for people contracting Cancer. Lifestyle, diet and stress are among considerations. Disease is always a combination of causes, cancer is one such disease that is not pinpointed to one factor. The German statistics flagged one to ring the alarm bells on earth lines when cancer became a diagnosis. Dowse for earth lines, move the bed, remove the patient from the influence of the noxious line. Of course removing the patient from the line is not enough to cure the disorder but it does improve the patients chances of recovery.

Harmful earthliness have also been incriminated in other pathological processes such as cot-death, joint problems, migraine headaches, heart conditions, varicose veins, bed-wetting and several others.

Bad dreams and insomnia are a common experience of sleeping on earth lines. Continuous bad nights, waking with fatigue also. When children are found to be upside down in bed in the morning, they’ve most likely been unconsciously trying to escape from the earth line.


What is known about the Lines

♦The lines make a grid all over the surface of the earth. This grid is known as the Hartmann grid.

The lines are about 2.5 meters apart though vary slightly from one place to another.

♦The lines are not surface lines, meaning if a line is found on the ground floor of a house, the very same line will be found at the same place on each floor above it. So high rise buildings are subject to lines also.

Scroll to Continue

♦The lines are sometimes heavily noxious, some much lighter and not so toxic. In the vicinity of a geological fault for example, the toxicity of the lines is reinforced

♦The crossings of lines are particularly noxious.

♦The strength and width of the lines are reinforced during stormy weather.

♦Most living organisms get sick when located on the lines: plants die, trees get cancerous growths. Not all is bad with this – compost heaps would work best on an earth line crossing.

♦Some plants and animals thrive on earth lines. Oak trees love earth lines, also willows, ashes and fir trees. Mistletoe, mushrooms and asparagus grow vigorously on earth lines.

♦Ant heaps are a sure indicator you’ve found an earth line. The function of ants is to clean all that is rotting in nature. You will have seen lines of ants – walking an earth line. Every now and then they seem to sway toward the honey on my kitchen bench!   But in essence the lines are like garbage cans.

♦Cats like to sit on them. Mind you they also like your couch cushions but that doesn’t mean your couch is on an earth line. Dogs will not sit on one. Interesting, if fido never sleeps in his kennel, perhaps it’s because it’s on an earth line? Worth investigating.

♦Beetles and termites also gravitate to lines.


Questionable Lines

When dowsing a home not only will you find earth lines, but a few extra lines that don’t fit with the Hartmann Grid.  Underground creek creates a particularly noxious extra line.  The more intense the flow of water is, the more noxious the line.

Water pipes also act as small underground creeks.

Additionally electric cables create lines.

You can clearly see that how you design and place your home on your block of land is paramount to the comfort you achieve in a home.  Additionally the placement of cables and pipes is added to the mix. 


Be Aware

Be very aware and informed that you cannot clear these lines. Many will have you fork out your hard earned cash to have your earth lines cleared. The very best that will happen with a lovely ‘clearing’ or ‘ritual’ is a short term feel good space. Eventually the lines will return to the same intensity they had before it.

What you can do is move your furniture. Have a dowser find the lines for you if you are not confident doing it yourself. Have them clearly mark the lines out in your home, and then redecorate to maximize your comfort. It is likely that not everything can be moved from a line, but you can ensure those places you spend the most time is where there is no lines.

If you are building a home you have an advantage to plan the house with your architect and take into consideration earth lines. If your architect thinks you’re a nutter, educate him/her, or get another one.

Thanks Nell.

Nell Rose from England on September 03, 2015:

Fascinating stuff Jewels, just my kind of hub! shared!

greencha from UK on January 16, 2013:

Brilliant article..I must go and get my pendulum..thanks

Jewels (author) from Australia on August 23, 2012:

Hi Miki, There is no 'map' to download. Have a read of the article Dowsing for Earthlines which gives you a comprehensive set of instructions to find them in your home.

And it depends on what sort of 'negative' energies there are as to how they can be dealt with. Dowsing helps and you can then move your furniture - beds etc., to places that avoid the earth lines, This can help a lot.

Miki on August 23, 2012:

Where can i download a map of the Hartman Grid ? Also in what ways can i protect my house from Negative energies ?

Jewels (author) from Australia on April 28, 2012:

hahaha, do you have a rhyme stutter going on? Hope your dowsing is a success, it helps clean an energetic mess!

Pamela Hutson from Moonlight Maine on April 28, 2012:

Fascinating! Now I want to dowse my house. (Unintentional rhyme, but I guess that isn't a crime.)

Jewels (author) from Australia on November 25, 2011:

Thanks LG, hope it helps with your home.

emohealer, I appreciate your visit, thankyou.

Sioux Ramos from South Carolina on November 25, 2011:

Thanks Debbie/Lady Guinevere for sharing this article on facebook. Jewels, this one is quite a gem. Thank you for your thorough research adn frank sharing. More can benefit from being better informed on the "layout" of our world. Rated up and appreciated!

Debra Allen from West Virginia on November 25, 2011:

Good information and thanks for leading ne this way. I rated it up and shared it. I also added to my bookmarks.

Jewels (author) from Australia on November 02, 2011:

Hello Maloca, Why we have earthlines is a mystery. What they are may be answered more in this hub

It's more common that people don't detect them because they simply are not taking notice of the environment they live in. If you find staff have their work desks on a crossing point check to see if they suffer fatigue, headaches more than others, or are restless. If this is the case you would do well to move the desk.

Maloca on November 02, 2011:

I can detect strong points every 25 feet - they are everywhere. What are these points where dowsing rods swing so strong? Could not be water as the distance between these spots is always the same. The seem to be located where lines South-North and East-West cross. 30% of staff on our office can detect these points, others do not.

Curious what is this grid for?

carolinemoon on September 03, 2011:

Great information, Jewels!Thanks for sharing.

Download the Awakening the Third Eye book dutchman, it's free and full of good to know stuff. The link is above under Free Downloads.

dutchman1951 from Tennessee, USA on June 06, 2011:

I am facinated with this subject, been in the Hub for a bit now. Keep writing, would love to know more. Excelent work Jewel.

Jewels (author) from Australia on January 13, 2011:

Glad you liked it sligobay. Now you can try dowsing and hunting for earthlines in your own home.

sligobay from east of the equator on January 13, 2011:

I have never heard of dowsing or the Hartman Grid. I love learning new things like this. Great Hub. Cheers.

Jewels (author) from Australia on December 23, 2010:

Glad you enjoyed it Jean, let me know if you have success with dowsing for lines in your home. It's great for vision.

Jean Bakula from New Jersey on December 23, 2010:


I really enjoyed this hub! I heard of Ley Lines, but only in a Jethro Tull album called "Songs From the Wood" which you may like. I get those "feelings" in certain places as well. Many of my old neighbors from the town I grew up in had or have Cancer, but I went out on my own pretty young & moved away. Very informative!

Jewels (author) from Australia on November 23, 2010:

I've not traveled the Nullabor, one day I'd love to. Have crossed the Tanami though and as with many deserts, there is a cleanliness in the land that allows for those 'strange sensations.' There is definitely an heightened awareness as if the physical body becomes a barometer. Australia has some phenomenal areas that will blow your mind, literally!

Thank you for visiting Twilight Lawns.

Twilight Lawns from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. on November 23, 2010:

So interesting and well researched. I admire anyone who can assemble facts in this way. Australia, Hm? That is a continent that has natural areas that are more than a little mystical. I have driven across the Island Continent from Perth to Adelaide and then to Melbourne and ultimately Sydney. Out there in the desert, the Nullarbor Plain, I experienced strange sensations. Thank you for reviving old memories.

Jewels (author) from Australia on October 22, 2010:

Hi K@ri, glad you dropped in. The dowsing hub is complete so have a go.

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on October 22, 2010:

I had not heard of this before, so thanks for sharing. It makes a lot of sense to me. I know that there are places in my house I like better than others. And lxxy is affected by electrical cables in an adverse way. I'm with Christoph, I'm very much looking forward to the dowsing hub. :D

Jewels (author) from Australia on October 17, 2010:

Thanks Christoph, great to read you again. Dowsing piece on it's way!

Christoph Reilly from St. Louis on October 16, 2010:

This was fascinating, Jewels. It makes sense to me, but I can't say why it does. I'm very much looking forward to your dowsing piece. There are some areas in my house I now suspect of being earth lines.

Jewels (author) from Australia on October 15, 2010:

Your ponderance is noted but sorry pjk, it wasn't me, nor is it my personal consciousness that has created the lines. It would be nice if we all took it upon ourselves to dutifully clean the lines on our own personal grid, yep and this I am doing with good progress. Paradoxically the more I clean myself, the more I become aware of the lines and can sense them more easily. This is not a case of attracting the toxicity towards me and so therefore I see it. Had the patients mentioned in the case studies above been aware of these earth lines, perhaps they may not have endured cancer. But to say they attracted them - a bit too new age for me.

I wish it was as easy to say it's my duty to clean them, and I clean them and hey presto! But as was mentioned above, doing clearings, or 'scrubbing the floors' doesn't fix them or permanently remove them.

Collective consciousness is likely effecting the toxicity of the lines; in addition to the enormous amount of pollution earth is enduring as a result of our lifestyles. There would need to be an evolutionary process to bring balance and lessen the negative effects of the lines.

So again, the Hartmann grid being a reflection of my consciousness - sorry I can't take credit for it!

pjk_artist from Turkey Point, ON on October 15, 2010:

Hey Jewels. Great hub. I look forward to reading your one on dowsing. I do however have a ponderance.

Since all of this is a reflection of your consciousness, is it not you who create the bad lines? (Not just you, but you "acting" through me and everybody else.)

I believe "you" have a duty to clean these "noxious" lines. The bad ones probably exist due to to some terrible memories upon them. Memories are from all mankind but they are ultimately yours. Anytime you encounter a noxious line I believe it is a sign that you need to clean a memory in you. Erase the line and draw a new one.

Imagine the effect on our beloved Earth if millions of reflections of you would all imagine cleaning the grid at the same time. Weapons would melt. Water and air would purify. Desserts would bloom.

Jewels (author) from Australia on October 15, 2010:

Great to see you Frieda and happy redecorating.

Thanks for dropping in Christopher and I hope you get the opportunity to learn dowsing. The grid is not the result of simplistic hypothesizing as you can experientially map them.

Christopher Price from Vermont, USA on October 15, 2010:

Interesting hub.

I'm open to most anything believing all things are possible. However, I do find the proposition that the lines would form a regular rectangular grid highly unlikely, since nature abhors straight lines and energy flows in undulating waves.

I can appreciate the concept, I just feel that there is much more investigation and less simplistic hypothesizing needed before any real acceptance will be forthcoming.


Frieda Babbley from Saint Louis, MO on October 15, 2010:

Very exciting topic. I'm going to pass this on. Perfect timing actually because I'm working on rearranging everything I can. It has become quite stagnant in our house. I've been observing everyone's movements and activities. This makes so much sense. Thanks Jewels.

Jewels (author) from Australia on October 15, 2010:

Hi VioletSun, thanks for your visit. The Dowsing hub is a work in progress. Won't be too far away.

AmaniT. Definitely check your meditation space. Not good meditation on earth lines. I'll also cover this in the dowsing hub. Best I get on with that one!

AmaniT from Sydney on October 15, 2010:

I have to check where I meditate each morning and where I'm placing my chair in my study - imagine how many hours I spend there! Thanks for this article Jewels. I'll look at the 'Awakening the Third Eye' book you mentioned for sure.

VioletSun from Oregon/ Name: Marie on October 15, 2010:

This is very interesting, something that surprisingly I wasn't aware of. I am very sensitive to energy, and I am thinking how unbalanced I was when I moved into my apt in NY; the bedroom had weird energy, and sometimes I would sleep in the living room. Tried to find your hub on dowsing and don't see it... will check again in the morning.

Great hub, very clear, so clear that I want to learn more.
