I would like to give a couple of examples of this energy so that you can become more consciously aware of what is present when you are in a new place. A person told me they visited a church in NY, New York, and they felt a lot of sorrow. They were confused because they expected to feel inspired or calm. I explained, people often go to church to release their concerns, which may be through prayer, expectations, yearning. People also may release sorrow, troubles, or pain which they release at this location.
Many religious or holy places have people who are caretakers of the physical space. By their actions, to help sustain the positive energy, the sorrows and burdens of people are cleared out, and the energy and feeling of the place stays clear, and positive. In other places, the caretakers are either no longer present, or they no longer keep the energy clear by their prayers, and practices. The heavy energy can build up and sensitive people can feel this.
Positive energy can also be felt. There may be a feeling of upliftment, peace, or joy. This can be experienced in a human made sanctuary or in nature. The photograph above shows such a sanctuary in the desert. The location is called Sanctuary Cove, Tucson, Arizona. The light streaming down creates a circle and shows the vibrancy of the land. Notice the spheres in the right hand corner.
