While in Switzerland during a spring break, I visited a village in the Wuerenlos (near Baden). It’s the same location where a cave known for its healing properties and energy fields can be found. People from all over the world book individual sessions to spend time in the cave to heal their body, mind and spirit.

Founded by Emma Kunz (1892 to 1963) was a nurse, healer, researcher and artist. When a friend of hers become ill, she began to do research on natural healing remedies. From this she discovered there were special properties not only in rock but energy fields surrounding the structure of the cave (called Grutto in German). Emma discovered the healing properties of a rock called AION A (a Latin word meaning “without limitations”). In Europe, pieces of this rock can actually be purchased at local pharmacies. It is often prescribed by doctors and pharmacists as a part of a patient’s healing process.

Getting an appointment is not always easy and luckily, I was able to have a half hour period that I shared with two others travellers (one of whom was German and healing his back). Time slots are given for each person to visit as only 1-2 people are permitted per visit during the half-hour duration.
When I entered the cave, I walked along the side and felt the cool, damp and dark feeling of the ground underneath my feet. I was drawn to the far right and sat near the side on some of the rocks. These formed a step-ladder on the wall. I learned later that where I was sitting was the field to charge the chakras as well as for spiritual impulses (the highest vibration inside the cave). Before entering the cave, I hadn’t seen a map of the energy vibrations.
In the cave, I had two clear reactions. One of these was an intense feeling on the left side of my face being frozen and as if the muscles were gripping. And the other reaction was of steady stream of air coming out of the left nostril as if it had no end. After sitting for the half-hour, I felt the ‘impulse’ to do the dancer pose. This is normally a posture I do not assume immediately but take time to warm up into.
Interestingly enough, it was not until several days later that I noticed the presence of the cave was still with me. It was an indescribable feeling of a protective shield around me. It was as if my mental field and aura had been reset.
