Healing and magical places in Romania
There are several spots in Romania that are said to be protected by powerful, but also mysterious energies. Coincidentally or not, these places are historically connected with the ancient sacred places of Romanian ancestors: Gaeto- Dacian and their wise priests. The setting of these places is magnificent, the peacefulness of the mountains around believer are food for hurt souls. People leave these places calmer, wiser and, without being aware, focused on the right things in their lives.
Sphinx of Bucegi
There are legends and incredible stories about this place. The resemblance with the Sphinx in Egipt deepens the mystery. The similarity does lies only in shape of the Sphinx, but also in size. About this place Daniel Ruzo, during his research regarding the Marcahuasi (Peru) mysteries, mentioned the Romanian Sphinx as megalithic structure from a former developed civilization. There are many voices claiming that under the mountains around Sphinx are tunnels in which are hidden unexpected treasures. Peter Moon and Radu Cinamar described in “Transylvanian Sunrise” the mystery found under the mountain. This fortune does not consist of gold or jewels, but a former underground world of high energy.
Sacred places of Dacian Mountains were never conquered by the Romans, nor vandalized. Sphinx was and remains one of the world’s energy poles, a place where strange phenomena occur. It is believed that the Sphinx guards a portal to another world, but only a minority is allowed to enter into this sacred mysterious underground world.
Named “Fate Grotto”, “The Wishes Temple”, “ The Temple Dug in Stone” , the Grotto at Sinca Veche is visited for its mystery, the stories surrounding of the temple, for bizarre phenomena occurring now and then, but most of all for people praying for miracles.
Sinca Veche is in Brasov county, on the base of Plesu Hill. The Grotto is at about 2 km away from the village, but everyone knows about it. The “Temple” is a cave dug in the freestone of Plesu Hill. Some people believe to be 7000 years old, even if the place was first time mentioned in documents only in 12th century. Some say that those who dug the stone knew the properties of freestone and consider that superior creatures are at the origin of this temple.
Inside the temple, now a Christian place, there are several halls. The entrance one, seen from a specific angle, looks like an amphitheatre. The general opinion is that this place is a pre- Dacian place, such they explain the space at the entrance in grotto as a rite space for Dacians. Another intrigue is the fact that the place has two altars. The most controversial is the second altar, the one lest visible, where on the wall is drawn in stone a sign looking like David star. Inside of the star there is a Ying and Yang mark, making researchers believe that the inscription are from pre-Dacian period.
There are several stories about incredible healings or dreams coming true after praying in this grotto. There were people who heard a choir singing from the sky. The song was sung in an archaic Romanian-like, still non- understandable language. The camera plays pranks while shooting, non- existent lights or shadows appear on the camera after one takes a picture.
The second point of attraction are parts of the relics of St. Nectarie in the Monastery, the healing saint. The rest of ST. Nectarie relics are at Eghina – Greece. The priest of Sinca Veche monastery told about several thanks letter he received from people coming there to pray for health. That was the case of an old lady praying for her grand-son who was going to have brain surgery. She went to Sinca Veche to pray to St. Nectarie. Shortly after, during the RMN test before boy’ surgery the parents found out that the tumor disappeared.
The seven springs, the water of immortality
In Bucegi Mountains, close to Sphinx, between Bolboci Lake and Scropoasa, it flows a stream whose waters have been repeatedly analyzed in the laboratory. Since 1927, researchers have found out that the source is pure and bacterial count equals zero. In ‘80s, during communism, investigations were resumed and the area was closed. Scientists have established then that narrow stream of water comes from an underground lake, hidden deep in the mountains, and they confirmed once again that this water is one of the cleanest in the world.
The Polovragi cave – Oltenia
Legends of the caves in the mountains Oltenia everything related Dacian faith, especially to Zamolxis, the Bear God. Old stories say that in the famous cave, Dacian priests gathered together to worship to Zamolxis. From here starts a tunnel linking connected to Sarmisegetuza holy city, placedhundred of miles away. Although not as spectacular as Muierii Cave (situated few miles away) regarding cave formations, the Polovragi cave seems to be the longest cave in Romania. So far only 10 km were explored, but the cave is longer than that. Researchers found that in the deep-dark depths, the air is as fresh as on Omu Peak (2507 m). Many people say that once they are within the walls of rock, they feel no fatigue or cold. Moreover, they have a relief feeling of leaving out all the troubles and worries. Cave seems to be crossed by an energetic field beneficial for some, but damaging for those with vengeful thoughts. The name of the cave comes from an extinct plant, in Romanian named “Polovraga”. Dacian priests used that plant as cure –all natural medicine.
