“There are…places where one breathes in spirit, places where a man can steep himself in it, or if you prefer, where he quickens the sense of the divine in himself. This is the greatest gift of Earth and Heaven to man.” Louis Charpentier, The Mysteries of Chartres Cathedral
“Earth’s crammed with heaven/ And every common bush afire with God: but only he who sees takes off his shoes.” Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I’ve been working for many years on developing my “wow factor.” I’m well aware that I’ve not reached the adept level, but by practicing I have become aware of chi/life energy/Kether outside of my physical body. Specifically, I’ve become aware of earthly places that feel good. I classify these places as having the “wow factor” also.
My experience with these places feels like working with an “energy ball.” (See last week’s Activity) When visiting these places, I’ve stuck my hands out and felt tingling and sometimes heat radiating the space. And, I find that after returning home I’m able to immediately go back there in my mind’s eye. And, if I am in the vicinity – I need to take a trip there.
The first time I became aware of these places was in Prague. T and I went there with Volunteers for Peace project in 1997. After finishing our two week work project, we decided to tour Prague for a couple of days. The city is magical reminding me of all my fairy tale books. Many of the places we visited had college students working diligently to restore the city to its glory before WWII and the implications of Fascist and Communist rule. I remember sitting in a front pew watching students carefully strip black paint away from a mural painting and the marble. My hands began to tingle. I thought this odd and opened my palms up on my lap. I was hit with a “wow.” T noticed it also.
Below are some of my favorite wow spots. This list grows as I explore my world.
England, Glastonbury well - yes I drank the water and brought some home for a Reike master friend. It was too cold and rainy to bath. This energy was very gentle and pulsing.
|Avebury Stone Circle|
|Dom St. Peter at Night|
|Ohio Serpant Mound|
|Mission San Xavier del Blanc|
Entering these earthy wow spaces.
I attended several lectures by Native American shaman regarding earthy wow sites. All stated there was a need to maintain these spots because they’re important for the health of our earth. They requested all who visit these spots to bring an offering that would bring about healing and helping our Mother. The following offerings were recommended and are what I bring when visiting: copper (copper pennies), mica and tobacco.
Activities – Go and explore earthly wow places.
By no means is this site a complete listings but it’s a jumping off point.
