Almenland Schüsserlbrunn going from the Tyrnauer Almhütte
There's an energy space that stretches From Mixnitz to Graz radiating from the Abbey of Rein. It's the Cistercian order that has maintained this energy space for centuries. I've been researching this energy space for years; what is it that creates such a wonderful feeling in this area, what brings about this uplifting, heavenly, light and magical state in these mountains.
I've gone as far as to feel an energy space in Breitenau where one seems to step into another dimension, where even the sense of the body is relieved, where silence is alive, where the expererience of the soul transcends the worldly. In my research, with a small team we’ve got to the point to say that this must have a source here in the area, and there must be a place where it radiates from, where this can be realized. We took out a map and drew the force fields we're experiencing, which can also be experienced in Semriach, Breitenau, and Rein, and discovered that the Schüsserlbrunn Chapel is also there in the mountains.
We read all that we could found on it and decided to visit this chapel and find out if there's more to it than legend. The 7 of us started out, we went to the Tyrnauer Almhütte where we parked the car and a hike began, which then ended in a pilgrimage. The view is stunning from the Hütte, one's thoughts simply fly away, all worldly troubles and concerns fly away and only the silence of nature, the depth of nature, remains. I already recommend the Hütte to everyone to go up and spend a few hours there, because you'll simply leave all worldy things behind; the gate of nature is there, there you can understand what nature is. The sight is indescribable, it's beauty, and harmony. We started out from here, the Hütte. The road was winding because the shortcut was closed. Cheerfully, melting into nature, breathing nature and tasting the harmony of nature, we continued to Schüsserlbrunn.
It’s steep in the last leg of the road - especially for me because I’m not a hiker - and my legs couldn't take it anymore, but I could see the people coming down smiling, smoothed out, as if something had happened to them up there. We overcame the obstacles and reached the Gasthaus Steirischer Jockl inn.
The view is beautiful view, the inn is beautiful. To arrive at a place where there's an energy space that can be felt and surrounds you as well as the inn. As we enter, we step over somewhere, something much lighter, something much more uplifting, something much cleaner. The food in the inn is delicious, it feels very good to be there, nature embraces you, the height, the sight kiss and one's soul soars. After resting, we decided to go down to the chapel in Schüsserlbrunn.
As we stepped out of the inn area and walked down the small stairs, it was then that we noticed that there was a silence that could not be experienced in the world. It was simply not the silence of the mind, not the silence of man, but something else. It's as if one has left their mind behind and only the soul can enter there. It was felt that this was the silence of holiness, sacred silence. By this time we were already certain that it wasn't just a legend, but that there really was a sanctity here, it could be felt, it could be felt in the soul. Arriving at the chapel, we felt that although we could see the world, it was as if we weren't in the world. We have crossed a border and only the soul comes here. With its simplicity, its incredibleness, it's both realistic and magical, sacred and secular. We went to the well, which isn't a well, but a rock fissure. There I leaned into this crack to see what it was like inside.
As I bent into it, it was like leaning through a curtain or bending over an invisible waterfall that required a person to kneel and bow his head, and at that moment there was a great breath, a transcendence, a spiritual breath, and sacredness. That’s when I formed a cross on my forehead with the water because it’s simply a holy baptism, it really happens.
It was astonishing that it's so real, so true, that there's a holiness and that this soul is washed through by this sacredness, where there's a small statue of the Virgin Mary. The soul is simply baptized with this sacredness. There's true holiness, the existing, eternal silence, the ineffable. All of us in our small group were immersed in this sacred atmosphere that's in the small fissure and we came down transubstantiated. As we came back to the inn, we felt like we had washed, cleansed and there was cleanliness. We came down with a smile, we were no longer in a hurry, and that made the soul completely transcendent. We were pleased to note that it's true that there's holiness here, that it's a special place, and we realised that we were on a pilgrimage.
Thanks to everyone who operates and maintains the small church and inn. You can feel on the mountain that there are a lot of energy lines where you can easily feel the ascension, it lifts the soul. This is Almenland. I can only recommend everyone to go - it’s worth the effort - to spend time there and kneel in the cave and bow before the holiness because there's real holiness there.
The journey we took as a small group of 7 is transformative. Nature is beautiful and a stunning view at the Steierische Jockl awaits you at the heights where you can relax and have a drink or meal. Stepping down the stairs to the chapel, there's a silence which is out of this world. Problems, thoughts disappear. There's deep calm and holiness. Alongside the deep ravine lies the spring, a small rocky gap in which the water drips and collects. It attracts you. Touching it immerses the soul. It's a releasing, cleansing relief and joy. There's a bow and grace, true divine love flows, permeating the soul from which the burden falls. It's a real sacred place and a pilgrimage that I wholeheartedly recommend to everyone. I feel gratitude for having being there.
