"The earth has 12 major energy centers consisting of eight chakras and four spinner wheels, each relating to one of the four elements earth, air, fire and water. Each spinner wheel has a particular purpose and Table Mountain is the earth wheel and is said to nurture and sustain, and to generate light.
All centres of earth energy are reputed to be excellent places for meditating. That is why so many people find themselves wanting to come to Cape Town – subconsciously they know that this is a holy place. The energy of the mountain is so powerful that you cannot live on its slopes without resonating with it, otherwise, discord will manifest in your life." Source
I did not know it to be possible, but it just so happened that we slept on top of Table Mountain. The hike was crazy windy, we had to stay low and hold the plants to not fly out. Having enjoyed the 20-40 degrees past months, the sudden and major change of climate felt weird & cold. Being inside a cloud, we ran to the lake and dipped to the water. It truly felt like being on another planet.
Nothing felt better afterwards that going inside, sitting in front of the fire, sipping tea, eating dinner in front of fire and talking for hours. This might sound like another night, but far away form my normal night in Cape Town. For months, it has been too hot to sleep well. I prefer the mornings and especially time after sunsets more as you are more energised without the heat. Change in environment was again key to learn to appreciate the warmth and comfort of home. I felt like I saw Cape Town with new eyes this morning, feeling magical picking up my morning smoothie and observe the busyness of the city. It is crazy how much can happen in 14 hours.
