Spirituality in Siem Reap
Many people who come to visit Siem Reap, especially to see the Angkor Wat temples experience a kind of elevated spirituality. Lots of people say that they can sense an energy about the place which is hard to explain and some may say it is just the majesty of the temples themselves which incurs this kind of awe. However, there is something about sacred sites all over the world and it could be a build up of spiritual energy over the years.
Temples, religious sites, hallowed grounds, man-made wonders, all of these sites have something in common. They have always attracted large groups of people to take a pilgrimage and visit the sites, to worship, to celebrate or to be inspired. Since most of these sites date back hundreds and even thousands of years, they are believed to contain a build up of cosmic energy.
The effect of millions of people throughout history, coming to one place and focusing their positive energy, through prayer or through respect is very powerful. As we know, energy does not disappear it merely changes form, and when thoughts, prayers, hymns and chanting for example, all gather in one place it can develop into a place of real healing, and can give everyone who visits a sense of electricity in the air. The sites themselves hold some awesome majesty, but it is also the people who have gathered there for thousands of years and the way in which they are visiting, also gives the buildings themselves such power.
The Spiritual Significance of Angkor: The Ley Line System Explained
There is also the theory of Ley Lines which helps us to understand why these sites are chosen in the first place. The theory suggests that Siem Reap and Angkor Wat sit on top of an important Ley Line, which is a spiritually charged energy line. It is said that they can be found all over the world, especially ancient sites and form a grid which maps the whole world. The Ley Line System shows that most significant sacred sites can be found either on a Ley Line itself or where they intersect; an even more powerful area where more than one Ley Line meet!
Visiting these sites of magnified spiritual electricity can help individuals to re-energize and heal themselves, and doing some spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation in such places is transformative. You can begin by adding a few to your bucket list, and you can start right here in Siem Reap.
