All nature spots are sacred
sites, but some hold specific focused energy that,
when experienced directly, can awaken us to greater awareness and self-realization.
Being in nature can greatly enhance our connection with the divinity of the planet.
It is our direct link to the heart and soul of Gaia,
the Earth Mother.
There are many access points of
focused energy around the world:
the Grand Canyon, the Himalayas, Machu Picchu, the Pyramids of Giza,
Ayers Rock, Lourdes, Mecca, to name a few. We are all familiar with these.
But only in recent years have many people re-discovered the power that lies within
the Great Smoky Mountains.
More than a splendid tourist destination, the Smokies contain Sacred Sites and Power Places that were the spiritual temples of the Cherokee Indians and other tribes. These peoples consciously honored the Earth Mother in their sacred ceremonies, and they sought out these special places during their vision quests because they could feel the focused spiritual energy and inherent sacredness of each location.
