The biggest source of energy is naturally the Sun. Forests and Oceans are biggest sources of prana (vital life force) available to us on the earth. Forest is a huge collection of lifeforms in harmony together. Similarly the ocean is also a huge collection of diverse life forms living in harmony together. Thus these are huge sources of prana energy.
We need not air but prana to live. If you know how to extract prana directly from the environment you wont need to breathe or eat or drink. Then technically you would be immortal as life is not measured in minutes it is actually measured in the number of breaths you have been allotted. Most real sadhus you will see spend most of their time in dhyan slowing/stopping their breath and will rarely talk so as to conserve the precious breaths.
Back to the forests, there is a reason why all the Indian sages went to the Himalayas for doing Sadhana.
- Pine forests – All living things have prana, and trees growing together have a humungous amount of energy in their combined aura. And they are very generous. If you are feeling low, hug a pretty pine tree and ask for help. You can close your eyes and focus into the tree too. It is a very different experience. Normally I would not recommend peeping into any other life forms “life”, but a well formed healthy pine tree is a experience I would certainly want everyone to feel. It teaches.
- Overloaded with energy – Formed as a sea bed and now more than 8km up in the sky, best of both worlds. It has a very potent mix of energies and all very very available.
- Fractured rocks – It is quite possible to find yourself a dark, energy rich crevice where only the required amount of air can get in, ideal for Dhyan or anything else you have in mind. Recently I went to a place Kasaar, Almoda, Uttarakhand where there is a temple of a goddess, Devi. It is just a hole in the ground which has such geyser of energy coming out of it, I just shut up and soaked it in. The utterly clueless pujaris had put a white marble statue of Devi Durga in front of that hole in the cliff and were praying to that. So I went out of the tiny temple and put my palms and forehead on the rocks, I saw Saraswati, that too in red garments playing her veena. The energy was music, divine music. This place is a must visit.
- Water – Water flows through the fractured rocks and through everywhere unlike the Western ghats (solid lava rocks, water flows above them), so the mountain is feels a curious mix of solid and liquid
- The energies of the Earth are very close to the surface here, though so high up in the sky the crust is quite thin. It is again a very different energy mix.
- The wind in continuous motion again full of energies
- And there are places in these mountains where dimensions intersect, here are the other entities like naga, yaksha, gandharva etc also reside.
- Apart from these, the regular fresh air, silence, no people around to mix their aura into everything etc which even a average person can also appreciate.
Try to visit forests near where you live, the more the wilderness the better it will be from an energy point of view. In India, the high energy locations are traditionally used by building temples over them and by the priests and people continuously doing pujas/saying mantras over them. But if you live outside India, you may not have such markers as temples, so sense if the air feels “light” or “dark”, or “heavy”. Close your eyes and get a feel of the place before trying energy manipulation there. Individual hillocks in a mountain range also have individual auras. If you are able to see the auras, most of the areas in the Himalayan ranges are silver, gold, blue, white, purple. I have seen very rarely orange red energies here.
But the Himalaya, are just so awesome. Do try to visit and live in the Himalayas as much as you can afford, on your vacations, trekking, adventure, anything. But do come here to experience how living conscious energy actually feels like.
