Dreaming the Dragon
The Belinus line is a long-distance alignment that runs the length of Britain from Durness in the north of Scotland through Winchester, the Isle of Wight and beyond. These global energy lines have associated polarised ‘dragon lines’ that weave around the main alignment like snakes around a caduceus, manifesting as masculine and feminine energy currents. The Belinus line is well-known in the world of dowsing but there is much mystery about what these lines where and where they come from. Our Quest will explore the dragon’s flow as it enters Scotland, reconnecting with the energy of the land through the art of dowsing.
The Belinus line is named after the pagan sun god Belinus. The male dragon current is called Bel and the female Elen. Throughout Western Europe, Bel (meaning “shining one”) was the most popular Celtic god of hilltop sanctuaries, most of which were subsequently dedicated to St Michael with the arrival of Christianity. Elen, a deity who has Hebrew origins meaning “light” or “illuminated” has both solar and lunar qualities and is an earlier archetype of the Virgin Mary. Elen is also Known as “Elen of the ways” she appears in the epic myth The Mabinogion; here she is the daughter of King Coel (who ruled in what is now southern Ayrshire), and magically built highways between fortresses for her soldiers to protect the country.
