My ancient 'throne' amongst the remains of the Temple once dedicated to the Greek God of the Sea, Poseidon.
Here I sit and contemplate the silence, listen to the wind in the pines, enjoy the purples and lilacs of the sacred wild flowers before continuing on my daily walk
K told me recently that there has been discussion about the site on social media. It is not by chance they say that the temple was built on this site. If you walk barefoot between the ruins you can feel the energy from the earth and become charged with strength and wellbeing.
Well, well, well (3 holes in the ground), say I.
I haven't felt any charge of sacred electricity but I haven't walked there barefoot.
I'll try when the weather gets warmer and more indusive to walking without socks and shoes.
There is a blog post coming up about the temple. I have the photos but not the blah,blah.
I have felt this energy with my hands at ancientstone circles. Drombeg in County Cork gives off these vibes. Perhaps your temple is built on ancient ley lines LA?ReplyDelete
It is supposed to be one of three temples forming a triangle. I'm sure it is built on ley lines. I've heard of a couple of other places nearby on the same line. Fascinating!Delete
Hello Local Alien. I visited Poros in the ´80s when an English friend of mine lived there with her Greek husband. Amongst other places we visited your temple and I may well have sat on your throne, I know I sat somewhere!ReplyDelete
You probably did though in the summer when the greenery dries up there are a couple of other stones visible which are great for sitting.Delete
In the 80 s is was more rural, less visited. Mind you, there were no signs up then and you didn't know what you were looking at.
That looks like just the spot - somewhere cat an humn might sun themselves and contemplate nature. There is sometheory inUK about churches being built on intersections of ley lines - some sort of energy lines. It could be hocus pocus, or maybe your ancients were onto something.ReplyDelete
The bigger churches here are said to be built on the sites of older temples. The ancients presumably were more on touch with these energies. Who knows....Delete
Ohhhhhh, do try it! We can all use some extra *juice*! -smile-ReplyDelete
And sitting here, out in the open, with no one around you... You still have to wear a mask?
Doesn't this feel, a wee bit ridiculous?
If the tiny China/Covid virus particles, are gonna' get you, there... What hope does mankind have?
But if the Police find you, and fine you.... What a money-making scheme!!!!ReplyDelete
Happy Easter. Hope you're enjoying the holidayDelete
I love walking around in my bare feetReplyDelete
Even if the lawn is wet or icy from frost. Even better. It has a lovely crunchy sound lol
Maybe since it’s spring there. Put on a summery dress, some flowers in your hair and go bare footed amongst the ruins
Even if you don’t “feel” anything you will look like a wood nymph enjoying the sunshine.
Thinking of me as a wood nymph made my day!!!Delete
Many years ago I did go up there with a group of friends and we all sat in a circle and meditated. Heavens I'd forgotten all about it! Can't remember any revelations.
I used to love scrunching through the frost in bare feet, when I was a kid ☺️
Sounds like the perfect spot for your throne. I used to have something similar here, but it was a fallen tree. Now all is too overgrown to reach it, so I have a plastic chair at Haddock's instead.ReplyDelete
I think it was reading about you and your tree that inspired this post.Delete
Plastic chairs do the trick too.
I have another stone with a view on another walk. Silence and dreams go together
Happy Easter, as you know ancient here and ancient there are two very different things.ReplyDelete
Yes, a few hundred years used to excite me, now I even yawn at a few thousand. Still I would love to go back and explore some of NZs historic sitesDelete
It looks like the perfect spot to plant one's bottom partway through a walk. I think it's wonderful to be able to say that you walk through ancient temple ruins. -JennReplyDelete
You've got it! It's exactly half way through the walk . I take breath and carry on. Fits my bottom perfectly 😅Delete
