Looking out from one of the chambered cairns at Carrowkeel: My favorite megalithic site in Ireland, dating from 3500 BC and relatively untouched, situated in the limestone Bricklieve mountains of County Sligo in western Ireland. Bricklieve means speckled and may have once meant "magic portal" in old, pre-modern Gaelic. I prefer magic portal. It certainly feels magical here: the setting, the geography, the history. For me, this place is just zipping with energy.
If you've never felt this kind of energy, Ireland is a prime place to have a chance to experience it. I don't know what that energy means or where it comes from, though I have my own ideas about it...maybe the people and lives here before left an energetic imprint that is very palpable compared to other places, perhaps from the activity that went on here, which I have a feeling given the alignments, the location and the work put into building the structures, was one of great awe and reverence.
There is a huge part of the electromagnetic spectrum which we don't necessarily see or experience with our traditional five senses, but that certainly does not mean it is not there. I believe there are some places where we can sense this part of the EM spectrum more easily. Some may be able to experience this everywhere, for others it may be more difficult, but places like these provide a good chance for most if they can be still in their minds and hearts and allow that primitive sensing part of the self, so seldom exercised in our modern world, to take over. What to make of this sensing, what that means, if anything, is up to the individual--and that's part of its beauty, mystery and potentially transformational power.
Whatever their other uses, the cairns are, as stated on carrowkeel.com, "special places to stand and observe solar, lunar and stellar rising and setting positions at particular times in their cycles" such as lunar standstills, predicting eclipses and other astronomical observations.
