Q: Are some locations more spiritual than others? Sometimes I go to a different city and feel great; other times I feel dizzy and tired.
A: I don’t know if it’s so much a matter of a specific geographical location as much as how each person resonates with a place.
There are places that are healthier than others, so that would give them a higher frequency. Cities with large populations tend to have lower frequencies. Natural settings have, in general, high frequencies.
What does that mean, a high or low frequency? It’s not that a place is necessarily good or bad, just that it’s cleaner, purer, simpler.
The history of a region also affects its energy. A friend of mine went over to Auschwitz and said she could positively feel the overwhelming sadness and despair all around her, and she felt sick.
Think about some places you’ve been. How do you feel when you’re there? Happy, energetic? Tired, apathetic? Nervous, irritable? This is all about the interplay between you and the land.
Think of it this way: if you mix hot water and cold water, you get lukewarm. The hot gets cooled down, the cold gets warmed up.
If you’re a high frequency (hot) person and go somewhere that’s lower frequency (cold), you get affected negatively (cooled down).
The reverse is also true, which is why most people are so moved when they are in the presence of great natural beauty like the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls.
They are, in essence, getting “warmed” by the high energy of the place.
I see you as someone with a pretty high frequency, so you are probably negatively affected by traffic, air pollution, noise and confusion.
Cities that are beautiful and clean, preferably with flowers and plants, resonate more with you.
You do best out in nature, being around moving water most of all (think oceans and rivers).
Does that mean you should move if you live in a big city? Not unless you really feel led to.
Otherwise you can just be aware of your reactions and be more conscious of your surroundings. Maybe you’ll plan different vacation destinations or take your time deciding where you’d like to retire by taking into account your reactions to geographical locations.
Are different locations more spiritual than others? You can decide that for yourself.
But the bigger question still remains: how do you feel in Fargo, at the lakes, at your parents’ house, in New York?
Then try to spend as much time as possible where you feel the best. That makes sense, doesn’t it?
And that’s what it’s all about—figuring out what makes sense in your world, then making decisions based on that information.
It’s empowering and a relief to understand things a little better, don’t you think?
