  • Camerano is a charming town in the Park of Conero.La town is located on a network of underground chambers, temples, tombs, circular rooms and tunnels dug into sandstone, whose function has changed over the centuries: from dwellings and defensive places deposits, eventually becoming places dedicated to pagan cults and then Christians, as shown by the markings, symbols and carvings on the walls. There is one particular room, called the Temple of the Sun and the Moon, where the protagonist is the sound. It is a circular Chamber with the Sun at the center of the ceiling (or a star, which is the same thing), which contains a moon, from whose tips they propagate eight rays coming down the walls. In correspondence with the rays has a few small shelves that serve as support for candles; the flame light follows the embossed lines leading up to the Sun, which gives the impression of shine. If you stand in the Sun you can get amazing acoustic effects; the voice creates a wave that rises to the astro before easing down the rays in the form of vibration. Who is inside the niches can warn you clearly. The room is one of the seven temples frequented during the middle ages by secret groups of Templars and esoteric orders. You can cross them following a hypothetical journey that embraces different and distant epochs, which begins in Camerone dedicated to the god Mithras, whose mystery cults in the 1st century BC always took place underground or inside tombs. Imagine as they did the ceremony: the believer is in the dark, afraid, is lost and alone, and thus may become aware of its weakness, until your eyes won't get used and identify a glimmer that leads him to the next room, the Trionfi.Si Cave is a circular space consisting of ten columns and nine niches, of which only one contains a stone seat (probably reserved for the priest who presided over the ritual). According to tradition, was a gathering place of ancient orders of chivalry; where once defeat the solitude of the darkness of the first room, the faithful can come into contact with the "brothers" that await him in the niches. It is therefore high time to open the consciousness and heading to the third stage, the Temple of sound. A priest at the center of the Hall sings a song softly and shakes reflected from walls induces the initiates in the niches in a trance or deep meditation. The sound is also able to activate energy in him who gives off: his throat during the singing emits vibrations that propagate along the spine by investing the whole body. For example the mantra in Eastern cult or the recitation of the Rosary in a rhythmic repetition of words and Christian prayers; that, on the one hand, empty the mind and body vibrate. Not by chance in India during meditation repeats "Om": "or" shakes the belly while the "M" resonates in the head; in this way the mantra is swinging the entire spine from bottom to top. Continuing on the path we come to the fourth room that is the Masonic Temple of Corraducci Cave, another circular room with niches and columns and a pillar in the middle. This is a Hall where you practiced rituals still unknown, where the center column was an energy corridor around which had the officiants. The next Temple instead, preserves a noteworthy aspect, which is the Egyptian ankh-shaped plant "(the cross with three straight arms and an oval), which recalls the life, both for the cross-shaped ansata", and because water flows in the traffic circle by the great energetic power. Before ascending to the surface we meet a twin Temple, i.e. a circular room divided into two semi-circles on one wall, where there are two identical altars and two engravings, depicting one side the host and wine. This site could mean that the pagan world of the first temples (Mitra and Egypt) we came finally to that Christian: following the light leads, in fact, the seventh Temple; the underground Church, which is structured as a basilica, with the anomaly to be oriented North, instead of eastward. In confirmation instead of the Templar presence there is a cross pattée (Templar symbol par excellence) at the presbytery, exactly above the crypt. In this important path of initiation we focuses on room linked to the sound, a rare environment whose purpose could also be curative and regenerative. On sites like this one from Camerano resonance and glare are key elements to enable a cure music therapy. When an organ becomes ill loses its natural vibration and vibrating differently is "out of tune", so ill also other organs; as in an orchestra in which just one instrument out time to bring disharmony in the collection. The current sound healing potential discoveries confirm that the priests had, by intuition or experience, advanced knowledge. If the sound is able to change your brainwaves and transform States of consciousness, can be used as a therapeutic activity beyond that psychic. Body and soul that you modify in parallel, nothing more similar to what has already been expressed by Pythagoras thousands of years ago. I would like an account: every journey starts from the bottom to rise to the top. As the poet who has departed from the underworld to purify themselves gradually rising through the roof.
