These piercings of energy through the earth's surface offer immense spiritual power to those that are tuned into it. Ancient people knew this and gravitated to these places where the energy was the strongest. They buried their dead, practiced spiritual rituals, built temples, charted the seasons, and left behind architectural wonders that have us smart people still baffled today about how they managed it all.
We can see remnants of sacred gathering places, especially in the UK and Ireland, where old stone ruins still consecrate the landscape with their faithful benediction. They offer inspiration to the traveler who can only glance in awe while passing by, and silently call out to the seekers hungry for a taste of the eternal world.
Annie added that catastrophic events like war generate intense bad energy. The human anger, rage and violence brought forth in battle mingles with the earth's energy and contaminates it. Certain areas can be marked for centuries by the bad "karma" left from such a short concentration of ugliness.
And there's more ...
That same defiled energy can reenter the node and be absorbed in the veins of energy that surge through the earth. The earth carries that darkness to other nodes. It spreads.
The converse is also true. Love, joy, happiness also affects the energy and it, too spreads.
Annie said that she lives near a node, and there was once a terrible battle there. Many churches have sprung up in the area, and there seems to be a high concentration of people in the region who have healing powers. It's almost as if the wounded part of the earth is calling spiritual healers to itself.
Because of the wound ... that region of the earth becomes a magnet for healers.
The theory mirrors much of what we hear today about healing, energy and alternative health practices. The Reiki movement and acupuncture follow this tradition.
Visiting a thin place could be good for both the body and soul, if one is tuned in.
