Sacred Space

by Jill Mattson


Creating Sacred Space was a titillating ancient secret. Observe how far people travel to a sacred site - without knowing that they can create such spaces themselves. 

Everything is vibration and every vibration has a frequency… such as the rocks in the ground, mineral content of the soil, the presence of water in the air (or not).These things contribute to the “frequency potpourri” of a location. For example, reflect on the feeling of being in a desert and then near the ocean. The amount of water in the air makes a difference in the feel of a location.  

Perhaps the crystal content in the soil, the type of rocks beneath the soil or the magnetic flow deep under the surface contribute to the positive feelings emanating from special spots. Locations on ley line intersections (energy currents from the Earth’s molten iron core) were desired because the sacred energy that masters created - combined with the energy of the ley lines and impacted a broader area. Likewise, it was important to locate spots on underground water ways so the good vibes practiced at the site, would travel in the water to upgrade the geographical area that the stream nourished. 

Special places uplift people, increase their strength and healing. Yet we can notice how any space feels. For example, it feels better to visit Machu Picchu, a sacred site, than Auschwitz (the former concentration camp). The history of events at a certain location contribute to its “feel.”

People’s feelings and consciousness subtly floats in the air around them. This energy is like snowflakes floating to the ground. Highly evolved people’s “energy-droplets” soak into the ground. For example, places where people pray – become peaceful. 

Each direction was associated with precise subtle feelings. Try it! Face North, South East and West, while paying attention to the tiniest feelings that you can detect. There are subtle differences in feelings, although you must be quite intuitive to notice the sure-but-tiny variations. These “directional” energies feel different in a variety of locations. Applying this technique, helped ancient people select a balanced location to become a sacred spot.

When the perfect site was not found, secret techniques were used to uplift the energy of an area. Ancient spiritual leaders faced each direction and spent many hours singing vowels sounds to balance the feeling of each direction. The sounds varied a bit with each culture, but they experimented to find a tone to bring harmony into the feeling they got from each direction. Below is one Native American Indian set of associations.
· The East, Vowel sound: eeeee, felt like air and uplifted the spiritual body
· The South, Vowel sound: aye, felt like fire, and raised the energy of the emotional body
· The West, Vowel sound: uuu, felt like water, enhanced the physical body
· The North, Vowel sound: ooo, felt like earth and brightened the mental body.

Ancient people were well versed in tiny subtleties. A method was needed to describe the gamut of tiny amounts of energies that ancient people felt. People divided all types of subtle energy into categories and compared each category to feelings of nature – they then called this “elemental energy.” When this “elemental” energy was in balance, it benefitted an individual in this location - as he also became balanced on body, mind and spirit levels. 

Each culture used different elements to compare to the same feeling. For example, one culture might compare a feeling to Earth and the next group compared the same energy to wood. The energy did not vary, but the associations that were used to describe it varied. 

Another secret was to observe your feelings while on each square foot of a property. Perhaps one area felt better than another. Crystals were dug into the ground to lift any pockets or negative energy. Beautiful songs were sung on the low energy spots.

Buildings or stones were aligned with magnetic energies of north and sound – again to improve the “balanced” feeling of a location. Star positions were copied in building placement – to resonate with a star system and subtly download the energies of those stars. Nature shapes (sacred geometry) were also copied in building design – to add the deep comforting feelings of Mother Earth. Masters converted sacred geometry to sounds. Some musicians have done this today, such as in Mattson’s Paint Your Soul and Star Dust CDs. Music and sound are most powerful tools in the creation of sacred space!

Ancient people sang their most uplifting songs to create sacred space. With prayerful intent and sound vibrations, strong doses of divine energy entered the air and settled in the soil. Musical repetitions are necessary as sound is subtle energy (tiny amounts of energy); each time a song is sung - one drop of positive energy is added to the location. Singing continued until the area was overflowing with uplifting energy. Rocks also slowly absorbed the singing and intent, adding to the permanent healing capacities of the location – an ancient version of a free health care center.

Sacred Space is uplifting and transformative. You can create it in your location – uplifting not only yourself, but many others and the Earth herself.
