As you probably know the world is filled with mysterious areas, places where the energies of the Earth openly leak out. These areas have been centers of ritual, worship, and spiritual growth since civilization began. They go by a wealth of different names but their most common and recognizable title is power spots. And while these areas of mysterious power have been found all around the world their is no place on Earth where they are more concentrated than the U.S. They are especially prevalent in the Southeastern section of the country where Native Americans tapped into their power since migrating to the land millennia ago.
In the modern age power spots have become an important part of worship and spiritual growth not only for Native American tribes but pagans and psychics as well. Who tout that the benefits of these mysterious areas are nearly endless and the potential to learn about the Earth’s inner workings priceless.
