Activation in the Pantheon

Activation in the Pantheon

A spiritual friend had told me to expect something to happen inside The Pantheon, a meeting or an energy exchange of some kind.

I was in awe of the magnificent building, which was the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of the Emperor, Augustus, around 27 BC – 14 AD. 

The Pantheon was originally built as a Temple to the Gods and thought to be the Temple of Mars in Campo.

The original building burnt down twice I believe and was rebuilt again by Emperor Hadrian about 126 AD. 

This time it was built of stone and the pillars you see at the front were all cut and made in Egypt and then shipped and rolled to the site in Rome.

The floor is still the original floor and the large circular domed portal was unique in Roman architecture.  

Hadrian retained the legend M·AGRIPPA·L·F·COS·TERTIVM·FECIT, which means Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, Consul for the third time, built this.  

In 609 the Pope of the time converted it into a Christian church and consecrated it to St. Mary and the Martyrs.  Thus saving the building from the destruction of many pagan sites in Europe during the Medieval period.

When I first walked into The Pantheon I had no idea what to expect and it wasn't until I stood in front of the artist Raphael's tomb, that the energy started flowing and I felt tingly all over.  It went on for some time and I felt renewed afterwards, and joyful to be there at that time in my life. 

So much grief had come before, and now I had the opporunity and priviledge to do the things that I really wanted to do.  And here I was receiving a beautiful energy activation inside The Pantheon, once a Temple to the Gods.  What could be better!

I feel in love with Rome and during my time in Europe in 2016 I went back to the city three times.  And on most days I would head into The Pantheon for an early morning activation before I headed out to see the sights.  What a great start to my days in Rome.

Raphael had moved to Rome from Florence in 1508, where he lived for the rest of his life and eventually painted the Pope's rooms in the Vaitcan, know as the Raphael rooms. At the same time Michelangelo was painting the Sistine Chapel.

Raphael died young, at age 37 and at his request to the Pope, was buried in the Pantheon along with two Kings of Rome.
