Cultural and Sacral Places:
The knowledge of the energy of the places…
Sacral places are today often the sites of Christian landmarks like churches, monasteries, chapels or wayside shrines. Christians often used spots that were already used by older cultures for special or holy ceremonies. Monasteries and churches were often built on the ruins of Roman foundations. This way the knowledge of the energy of some spots has been handed down over the centuries and it was used for monuments.
Recognize power and mysticism...
Today it is mostly the old people that have knowledge of mythical places.They in turn received this knowledge from their ancestors who told them the exciting and eerie stories. When we get to such places it is firstly difficult to say what is special about them. But when we learn of the old stories we can aided by our fantasy recognize the power and mysticism of these places.
Exceptionally beautiful scenery...
On these spots we can almost always enjoy exceptionally beautiful scenery. An impressive tree, a fascinating course of a river or a touching view are examples of nature spots. The interplay of the four elements of air, earth, fire and water can also be observed on nature spots. When these four elements are experienced in balance a special harmony is created on these spots.
