Aboriginal sites Leylines in Canberra?

Flatone 24 October 2011 26

Does anyone know of any sacred energy sites or leylines in Canberra?

I believe the Aboriginal people call them “boorooah”??

Thanks

It might help. The Burley-Griffins were well onto it.
Goodness me, what a wonderful source of unsupported assertions, wooly thinking and spurious connections between unrelated subjects! I’m going to keep a copy of this as a perfect example of irrationality! Thank you so much for posting it!

I myself don’t have any knowledge about leylines or sacred sites in Canberra, but I have always wondered. Whenever I walk up on Mount Majura I get a very strong feeling that it is a special place.

Well that settles it then. If you get a strong feeling it must be true.

Pandy @ #21,

Your secret informants lie!

They are Rovers, and yes, they are piled long and high.

On that note, a sign recently appeared on the section of the Bicentennial Trail running behind the new housing development in west Macgregor, identifying the land surrounding the creek as one of the most fertile sites for indigenous artefacts in the ACT

Ginninderra Creek is quite well known for Aboriginal sites. There’s a few areas in Latham that were undoubtedly used by locals for a variety of reasons including axe grinding.

Shhh!!! But I have been secretly told that there is this place in Queanbeyan that has a stack of Leylands piled on high.

I’d be a little cautious about any claims of Indigenous laylines.
A few years ago a local Aborigine was telling me about traditional activities that had happened throughout history, centred on the shore at Acton Peninsula … I decided not to embarrass him by mentioning that the lake had only been there since the early 1960s and there could only have been intermittent floods causing the water to go that high before then …
And remember those “axe sharpening grooves” along the Murrumbidgee between Yass and Canberra that caused a great deal of faux Indigenous cultural history discussion, but then turned out to be natural grooves from running water.

…and just as I suspected, as soon as an indigenous topic comes up, we will some self righteous ‘spokesperson’ implying that he has a deeper understanding of the issue and that anyone who disagrees with him is an ignorant redneck.

Got got one, pal. I’m better than you

That said there are no leylines in Canberra

Oh Flatone, I am continually floored by how ignorant Canberrans generally are. It’s like they’re totally unaware of advances in quantum physics and are completely unable to see how this might apply to their parochial lives .

It’s true, nonsense does sound more authoritative when you throw the word “quantum” around a bit!

Another thing I’m interested in is Bruce Cathie’s Gridpoint Atlas Software. See http://www.worldgrid.net/. His books are amazing. It’d be so cool to try the software for Canberra!

Aliens! You win.

When I’m walking up I always say a little prayer to all the nature, wildlife and any other beings living there saying I’m just here to enjoy and not to harm.

Happy lightworking 🙂

That’s where me and my cousin collect the Reiki energy we market to local practitioners. Once you find a junction of the leylines it’s just a matter of installing a cross-fed mutlipler into the line of sight between the north facing line and the intersecting one, and it just flows into the barrel of its own accord. Two or three hours in a good confluence nets us 3-4 44 gallon drums of the stuff.

Of course, you might be talking about the ‘lay’ lines, and they go straight from mitchell to Fyshwick most Saturday nights.

Yeah but those kind of Laylines drain both your bank account and your b*llocks!

be prepared to find out that what you have been told about “leylines” is a load of whitefellah’s boorooah.

Classic.

There were Ley lines back in the early days of Canberra and they were a major tourist attraction for many years until some kid tripped on one and his progressive single mum sued the government saying that there were no guidlines in place for public safety.

The Stanhope guvmint saw this and blocked the area off because being redneck philistines, we were obviously not as smart as our great red leader at the time, we might trip over and damage the habitat of the local neckless blah blah blah. To cut it short, the ley lines were removed and placed in storage with the light rail network.

Maybe you should consult an astrologer or an iridologist. I’m sure they could find them for you.

What about a chiropractor?

Nah, find a phrenologist or local homeopath – they’ll no doubt help you out.
