How to Work with Power Places to Heal Yourself and the Planet

Feb 11, 2008
When we first start out on the path to awakening our true self, most if not all of our energy is tied up in false beliefs that limit our perception of the world and who we really are. To break free from the trap of our beliefs takes awareness, knowledge and energy, all things that we initially don't have. What most of us fail to realize is that we are standing on an almost infinite source of energy and knowledge that is always available and willing to help us: the earth.

Ancient shamanic-based societies, such as the Toltec of Mexico and the Incas of Peru, knew this very well. Living close to the land enabled them to learn and draw energy from the earth to expand their perception and remove the beliefs that kept them trapped in the limited perspectives of mind.

The master teachers of these lineages found energy lines that lie in the earth and places where this energy pours forth in great quantities. They built temples and places of learning on these spots, and through working with specific intents, molded the energy to help people learn about and undo the beliefs and attitudes that kept them from realizing their divine nature.

These places of learning, or power spots, are still available to us today. All it takes is openness and a sincere desire to work with the earth in order to activate the energies of these spots to transform our lives. Generations of people did their personal work in these places and tuned them to help with specific issues. The knowledge and keys to unlocking the energy have been stored in these areas and are easily accessible to someone with the right intent.

The biggest obstacle to connecting with the earth is our linear Western mindset that believes something needs to be fully understood before it is valid. When we drop below the mind and allow our bodies and energy fields to naturally connect with the earth, when we in essence give up the mind's need to control what is happening, and then open ourselves with humbleness and gratitude to the Mother Earth, the insight and energy of these power places are available to us.

This knowledge, insight, and pure power available for transformation are amazing. Many people experience dramatic shifts in their lives following a power journey, a voyage to a power spot to work on personal growth. Stuck patterns of behavior and untenable life situations suddenly have the freedom to move. It is not that the transitions are necessarily easy, but there is excitement, flow, and momentum that were not tapped before.

On one power journey to Peru with the Toltec Center of Creative Intent, I experienced another astounding result of connecting with the earth in power places. We took a group of people to the beautiful country of Peru to experience and work with the energy of sacred sites, while also doing personal and group process to let go of limiting beliefs. While doing ceremony in a cave at the base of a mountain at Machu Picchu, I had an intense vision and a visceral knowing of how the work I was doing was impacting other people and the earth itself.

We often hear from great spiritual teachers that the best way to help humanity is to free ourselves, because problems in the outside world are a reflection of our internal strife; thus the most effective way to fix them is to work on our own connection with the divine. I experienced a deep energetic understanding of this truth.

With my awareness expanded from working with this sacred spot, I saw and I felt that in completely letting go of my need to understand (my personal issue at that time), the vibrational rate of my entire energy field shifted. I saw that much of who we are is based in energy, and how this energy responds to other energies around it. My new vibration had an impact on everyone and everything around me, as if everything contains a tuning fork that resonates to the combined field of other tuning forks around it. The channel of energy running through the earth at that point amplified and carried this vibration to other places on and around the same energy line I was working on. As it hit intersections with other energy lines across the earth, that vibration was carried across the planet, impacting the earth and everyone in the vicinity of the power lines.

Did my energy shift create world peace on the planet? No, the changes that happened outside of myself were small, and smaller as the vibration was carried away from my physical location, yet the shift absolutely did have a tangible impact.

As we continued through Peru, I witnessed this new understanding at play: how someone's personal insight, experience, or shift in energy would resonate through the group, how when working at power spots I would feel people's change in vibration resonate across my energy field, and how I could track the energy vibrations spreading across the land through lines of energy running through the place.

I also saw how when a group of people works together, the energy of the group shifts. One person's growth is reflected back to them, amplified by passing through the group. In a power spot, not only is there more energy for a person to work with, but the energy of the place changes when people do their work, and the shift is reflected back to each person even more powerfully.

These perceptions deepened my understanding of the broader context of what it means to be on a spiritual path, and how working on ourselves in community and as children of this planet can give new meaning to becoming enlightened.

I would like to ask you to dream with me for a moment on the impact it could have on the conflicts of this planet if you and thousands of other people were to use the energy and knowledge available from the earth to heal your own wounding and inner conflicts. Imagine how this work would transmit itself through the energy lines of the planet, changing the vibrations of scarcity and aggression into those of acceptance and peace.

I have great gratitude for the blessings the earth has given me, and for those guides who have led and taught me to grow beyond the confines of my limiting beliefs and embrace my connection with Mother Earth.
