What a “spirited” exchange ya’ll have been having on this Huashan “cave” stuff!
This past summer on Michael’s trip, I spent 3 days in a Temple “cave” near Bei Tou Ping. Sharing a Temple cave with a close friend, we spent the days and nights in deep appreciation for our presence there. We called on many spirits as always and we felt completely supported and always safe. I have not written about this previously because the time spent there is so sacred and special to me.
We made a proper Temple out of the cave again, giving the space total respect and appreciation. We swept it out, placed pine cones, bird feathers, fresh Tibetan incense & lit 3 candles that burnt the entire stay. We said a prayer, played a Tibetan Singing Bowl, agreeing not to vocally speak to one another for three days.
I did Primordial in there several times. Each time was a deeply moving experience. The ceremony was always preceded with hours of prayer & mediation & soul sounding. One day, we spent from sunrise to sundown inside the cave meditating together. We had gods and angels visit. They were quite supportive of our practices.
Cooking might be a good word to describe that temple after a day of activation. At some point I realized we had the temple so incredibly vibrant and the ethereal spirits all called that we really did not have to do anything active. Just go deep into the presence that deep inner light, where our souls sing infinity.
I did not see any foxes, but I did see a Goat! And what a cool goat it was. I went out for a walk above the temples on the first day and there was a goat just above me. He took off and guided me for a couple of hours all the way to the top of the mountain. This goat was obviously a high spirit in physical form. Once I got there I found a set of three pinecones in a very cool display. After taking a roll of slides I climbed back down and added the pinecones to the shrine.
Ohhhhh and just for the record we did not fast. I tried for one day and made it until lunch time, oh well, i just like food too much it was very funny. We ate apricots, dried nuts and chocolate scored in the village below. We were fresh and charged as ever after 3 days. Good chocolate is the most expensive thing you will every buy in China, stock up!!!!
It was a very special privilege to spend time there. I’m still baffled that anyone would call them “caves” as they are clearly temples. Something to keep in mind. You are sleeping in a space that was carefully crafted for spirit. I dont think you could be surprised to find some spiritual visitation when you perform powerful practices and sleep in such a sacred/activated place.
You attract what you ask for or resonate with. We asked for love, light support and received nothing but love, light and support. It was quite a celebration.
The morning we left we gave a thanks to the temple & its spirits …. & left the offerings and the candles burning…. If I every left, I certainly want to return.
