The sacred mountain
In recent years, people of different spiritual persuasions have come to believe that Table Mountain is one of the planet’s 12 main energy centres that radiate magnetic, electric or spiritual energy.
Each of the main centres (or “spinner wheels”) are believed to have special properties representing the four elements vital to the earth’s wellbeing.
Table Mountain is believed to be the earth wheel, sending out nurturing energy and pulsing forth light. The air wheel is thought to stretch from Egypt’s Great Pyramid to the Mount of Olives in Israel, channeling intellectual and abstract energies. New Zealand’s Lake Rotopounamu purportedly radiates love and intuitive energy, while in Hawaii the fiery Haleakala Crater is believed to be a centre for masculine energy.
This may explain why many people find walking or meditating on the mountain a great way to relax and rejuvenate, both physically and spiritually. Many people also believe that thinking positively while in a place of earth energy helps the overall power and health of the planet.
So next time you take a stroll on Table Mountain’s sacred slopes, remember to keep your heart light and your thoughts happy – you may be helping to spread peace, love and healing around the globe.
