Locational Energy

Post by winterkeep » Sat Jun 29, 2019 4:58 am

Hi.

I have an interesting story around locational energy. This is energy that I believe can be located at different places provided that location has been adjusted, deliberately or not, by spiritual practice.

Not long ago I went on a trip to Japan and had a few spare hours in Fukuoka, so I decided to checkout Tochoji temple. In case you dont know there is a large wooden Buddha statue located there and you can actually walk under it through a tunnel.

At around the 1/2 way point in the tunnel I sensed a significantly powerful energy which manifested in my right lung and then moved centrally towards the heart - very difficult to describe in words. I sensed pure power and it stayed with me towards the end where the tunnel went pitch black. After groping in the dark I suddenly found myself back in the light (this is how the tunnel is built - so this part wasnt spiritual, but physical). However combined with the powerful sensation I had within me and going from dark to light I suddenly had a thought that said "to see and know the light, you must overcome fear of darkness".

The power/sensation stayed with me for many hours after. I often wonder if other people had similar experiences in spiritual places? I've been inside many Churches and Temples, but never experienced anything like this, before or since.

Regards!

There are Power-places all over; whether you believe that this place is a egg-shaped ‘dome-covered’ flat-disc or a convex-sphere floating through ‘infinite outer space’.

You may be delusional, or may have ‘tapped into’ one of these Power-places. Since your post seems intelligent & sincere, I’m opting for the latter.

Or I should say as the latter alternative regarding my first above paragraph, an pear-shaped oblate-spheroid :rolling:

Where do you get this shape information from?

While I often see colors around people, I have never witnessed any shape I could identify like you have.

Sorry I should have clarified; when I said “this place”, I wasn’t referring to the shape of the place you visited. I was referring to the shape of the Earth. Some believe that the Earth is flat and has Power Places all over similar to Chakras; and some believe that the Earth is spherical (or an pear-shaped oblate-spheroid) and has Power Places/Chakras. Therefore Power Places, either way.

Although I think that there can also be Power Places that aren’t ‘Chakras’ per-sé, but are places that were made Sacred by the activities of a great Master having taken place there.

You may be interested in the study of feng shui, probably better known in English as "geomancy", which is a magical practice of reading and manipulating the energy path ways of the environment.

You might be right there.

I once did one of those 10 day SN Goenka meditation courses, and at the end I got the job to clean up the meditation hall. Obviously it was extremely peaceful. But what was strange was that somehow crawling insects had gotten in, and from all directions were headed for the center of the room. Very strange. Probably extreme meditation creates a power zone.
