8. Selcuk, Turkey – House of Mary: incredible energy!
On arriving in the carpark which is a way away from the House, I can already feel this strong energy laying over the area. It is strong, clear, calm and so peaceful.
The surrounding forest and gardens only add to the atmosphere here and is so beautiful. You instantly feel your whole body relax and shoulder drop in this all pervading calmness.
This House was discovered through psychic visions of a German nun who had never been here.
She wrote a book describing in clear detail that this was the last house Lady Mary lived in, how it looked and where it was.
An investigation party found it from her descriptions. They did not see this nun as mad, weird or delusional; they took her psychic visions seriously, and found the information worthy of following up on.
The House of Mary is very small, and made of stones, a very humble place. No photography inside is allowed as it is a shrine and a place of pilgrimage, declared a Holy Site by The Vatican and a number of Popes’ have been here for Ceremonies.
Power of Prayer – On entering the House, in an attitude of respect and reverence, you pass through a small room, into a larger room where there is a large altar with Mary and other relics. There are only a few chairs, and many people (particularly Catholics) came in falling to their knees in prayer and praise of Mary. The thousands of prayers and reverence that have taken place here have fuelled the power of the energy at this site. I sit there in meditation to reach a calm state and absorb the incredibly powerful calmness. My monkey-mind makes a still mind difficult to reach, but that energy is so strong I am happy to just sit and absorb it. The perfect place to Be Still and Aware.
In Death there is Art – I love this garden in the corner of the House of Mary – a blasted stump of an ancient tree amalgamated into the design of the garden bed, surrounded by delicate flowers !
There are candles you can buy on your way out, and you pass through another very small room to go out the exit. It is literally a 3 room house, 2 rooms very small.
By the time I leave, the strong calmness of this place stays with me and I still feel it now as I write this.
Energy Imprinting – This place not only left its energy imprint on me, but also the significance of the fact that the work of highly evolved spiritual masters never stops. It has a momentum and constant manifestation of affecting people wherever they are. They attract people wherever they go and it is lasting, transcending time through the stories and buildings that appear.
What a great day – love it !!!
