Rasa is a magnificent rural village that sits on a natural terrace with stunning views of the whole Centovalli. It immediately draws you in to discover its picturesque corners and feel its vibrations, but before you do, follow the path towards Intragna, a short but important detour to make sure you don’t miss a truly magical place full of positive energy: the ancient La Ciaparia spring.
Did you know that, in years gone by, people believed nature’s benevolent spirits lived near springs? We haven’t seen any yet but we can confirm that the water is very cold!
Rasa’s church is a particularly important place of power, especially in the choir and at the old altar, where the energy is at its highest. The upper part of the bell tower seems to act as an antenna that channels the vertical cosmic influence from the Ghiridone.
The church in Terra Vecchia is also its strongest place of power. Its centre is home to a torsion field, an energy vortex invisible to the naked eye that emanates a subtle vibration of white light and higher consciousness.
The path continues into the heart of the forest, descending before climbing to Bordei, home to two more places of power at the octagonal fountain and the altar at the back of the church. The ceiling over the choir features paintings of the four evangelists with animals and the angel, symbols of the four elements of the ancient path of alchemy, present in us and in nature: earth, water, fire and air.
The church of San Michele in Palagnedra offers the last centres of energy on this route: the east-facing altar (facing the sunrise) and Christ in the mandorla. Both can be found in the side chapel, which contains frescoes by the well-known artist Antonio da Tradate. Could this energy have contributed in some way to the creation of these masterpieces?
