Silver Mines and The Royal 14

The worldwide demand for silver has gone up, due to the material needs of computers, medical catheters, jewelry, etc.. Old mines are being reopened, and the high price per ounce has made this very lucrative.

In Mexico “Real de Catorce” (the Royal 14) of San Luis Potosi is a historical silver mining area (it appears that the historic mining town of Real de Catorce is one scene in the movie “The Mexican“). Here vanadium has been mined for the use in ball bearings and aircraft materials for the last 30 years, and so roads are open, and blasting has occurred periodically. Now, with a huge demand for silver, the whole area is being considered for pit and strip mining, along with continued tunneling and blasting. Foreign countries have invested in this bonanza, and equipment plus financial capital are making progress extracting silver.

This is taking place in the  Huichol Holy Land   of  “Wiricuta“,   located in the general vicinity of Real de Catorce. United Nations UNESCO is considering designating this Huichol sacred site as a World Heritage Site, and thus recommends recognition and protection.
There is growing concern for the preservation, of at least a small part, of the Huichol Holy Land, within the boundaries of mining claims and activities. Old dirt roads have been paved, traffic and train activity has increased, blasting has continued, and urbanization is expanding into this region. The mining offers Mexico jobs and profits, thus the situation is for the Huichol Indians is very difficult. Recently some protection has been given, to certain areas within the region, and this might extend further in the future.

Silver is a luminous metal, and like gold has been associated with spirituality. There are references to “monotomic silver” that suggest it has a role to play in spiritual evolution.

The Gold of Montezuma

Hernan Cortez obtained a horde of gold from Montezuma, and fled with it. Aztec warriors followed the conquistadores and the gold treasure was hidden, or lost, making possible a more rapid retreat. Nothing more is reported about the gold, history leaves it lost. (see The Aztec Response )
Later Cortez sails to Baja California, to explore ( see “Later Life and Death“). Perhaps the gold was not lost, but instead secretly taken to Baja California, a safe place to hide it from the Spanish Royal Crown.
Later on in we read that the Jesuits of Baja California were fabulously wealthy (see “Governor of Las Califonias“), and King Carlos of Spain wanted them out of Baja California. General Gaspar de Portola is sent to Baja California and an expedition is arranged to travel north to Monterey Bay. One  hundred  mules are employed, to carry what? These men were competent long distance hikers,and would have avoided riding on mules (riding fatique and saddle sores). Wild game was very plentiful, and they were meat eaters. Native American Indians acted as guides and hunters, helping with wild foods and meat.
The climate was mild and pleasant, and these explorers were use to camping with a minimal of supplies. Tools to build dwellings would only require a dozen mules. What were they transporting?

They report that they “missed” Monterey Bay (see “Expedition to Alta California“) and continued on, up the coast to the San Francisco Bay, and then returned south. Once again they claim to have missed the Monterey Bay, and continued on to Baja California. These were seasoned explorers who had sailed across the Atlantic, using compass. There is no way they could have missed the Monterey Bay, even in the fog. Ships had also been sent, from Baja to the Monterey Bay, to help support the expedition.  (Above story information is via Wikipedia, and should be further researched for authenticity)  This story would make a great movie!

Gold is luminous and has been valued since times immemorial. Spiritual traditions have utilized it for jewelry, icons, statues and even elixirs. There are some claims that monotomic gold (and other elements) have powerful spiritual effects on people, and these stories are fascinating, even if part myth. Myth is a metaphor, and can have important messages to decipher.

Aztec Places of Power and Healing

Mexcaltitan is the legendary origin of the Aztecs. It is a “Venice” of Mexico, where boats are used to access homes and streets. This village is located in Nayarit, Mexico, on the Pacific, and is a tourist attraction known for excellent seafood.

The Huichol Indians are of the Uto-Aztecan language group, and includes the Hopi, Yaqui, Tarahumara, Cora, Aztec and others. The Huichol believe their origin was the Pacific ocean, near San Blas, Nayarit; Mescaltitan is not far (north) from San Blas. For the Huichol, this site (Washieve) is a very important pilgrimage destination, and is associated with renewal and healing.

Ixtlan Del Rio is also in the Mexican State of Nayarit, located south of Tepic and North of Tequila (Jalisco). Close to the town are ruins left by the Chichimecas, relatives of the Aztecs. It is a powerful location with impressive views of its valley and horizons. Carlos Casteneda’s book, “Journey to Ixtlan” was probably named after this site.

Chicomoztoc (Runias Quemadas) is found near Zacatecas (a regional place of power, similar to Santa Fe, New Mexico) in the state of Zacatecas. This is large ceremonial site built by the (Aztecs or Toltecs) and commands a spectacular view of the high altitude desert and horizons. The Huichol Indians visit this area, known by the name “Jaikitenieh” (Cloud Mouth Pass) and pray, before traveling on to their Holy Land.

Teotiahuacan is the pyramid complex of the Aztec and Toltec, located near Mexico City. It is the most famous ruin site in Mexico, and was associated with the ancient capital city Tenochitlan during the era of Montezuma. The power and majesty of this site cannot be conveyed with words: it is an experience you should have at least once. Don’ forget to visit the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City where fabulous treasures from the past are on display.

I found an amazing coincidence of words where we find the phoneme “ku” or “cu”:  Sanscrit: ku ndalini = latent vitality;  Spanish   cu lebra = snake;   Maya: Ku culcan =source of culture and snake diety associated with the Flying Serpent (Aztec) Quetzalcoatl;    Huichol:  cu wiwi = rainbow,   hi cu ri = peyote,   i cu ri = corn,              ku puri = life force vitality.

Lightning of the Sierra Madre

Don Jose’s village was located in the Sierra Madre mountains of central western Mexico. I lived there for six years, (1971 – 1977) in my own one room grass & stone hut. During the afternoon and evenings, in the rainy season (from June to September) storms would pass over, and the night sky was illuminated with flashes of cloud to cloud lightning. The effect was like a strobe that lit up the night sky in frequent bursts of light, sometimes with thunder and bolts of lightning. This natural light show is stunning in its awesome power, and is an experience well worth a trip into this remote area. Canyon de Cobre (Copper Canyon), in Sinaloa, Mexico, land of the Tarahumara Indians is also a spectacular mountain range, and has a similar rainy season light show. The lightning in these regions is so amazing you have to see it to believe!

Our planet has many regional places of power, and this is obvious when one fly’s from a major city in the USA to a location such as Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. The change in “vibes” is profound, and most people are quick to perceive it. As you travel east from Puerta Vallarta , up into the mountains, and finally to a village we find that all feelings of stress disappear, and is replaced with a pronounced serenity, deep and nourishing in nature. Places of power and peace can be very large geographical areas, and local populations are accustomed to this, and may not notice the qualities. Contrast is apparent to visitors, and once again upon returning home.

Pulse, Rhythm, Song and Dance

Don Jose’s Huichol name was Matsuwa, and it means “pulse”. He had an amazing ability to chant, sometimes with an accompanying drum, all night long in family ceremonies, on a mountain top, in his wilderness home. Everyone was deeply touched by the depth and power of his chants, that celebrated love for the earth and sun, life and spirit. People that remember don Jose recall that in daily life he loved to make everyone laugh, and with spiritual passion he could chant all night long until sunrise.

The schumann resonant music of the natural world, today, might be out of reach for many people. The inaudible and mysterious tones which have been here for billions of years are overwhelmed with technological innovations. Meditation practice is one good way to “listen” for the inner tones. However, by substituting music and song, or pulse and beat, I believe we create an equivalent inner song that helps to harmonize and orchestrate our bio-energies and well being.

The Sun

Our present sunspot cycle 24, and corresponding solar activity has been relatively modest and quiet compared to previous cycles. The solar flux has not shot as high, or has it had contained many sudden peaks of activity. You can follow the activity reports and note highs and lows. Sudden peaks can (usually) be perceived as: excitement, animation, stimulation, enthusiasm, optimism and boldness. Dips and depressions, especially when sudden and pronounced can be perceived as: depression, lassitude, disinterest, fatigue, peaceful, and conservative.

Do you recall feeling sullen and depressed when the sun does not shine and the sky is overcast? And then feeling very happy, elated and cheerful when the sun comes out? What causes this? Clouds or fog, according to their density with water, can attenuate “solar flux” at many frequencies or wavelengths from reaching us, and visible light is only a small portion of this. I have noted on these occasions of overcast & depression – that going inside to a room fully illuminated, even with full spectrum lights, I still notice the depression. This suggests to me that not only the visible part of solar radiation is utilized and absorbed by people, but that invisible portions are important to us for health, happiness and well being. I suspect we absorb these invisible energies, as we do at natural places of power and luminosity, (see my website home page: Places of Power: Guide ) and they fine tune our bio-field, biorhythms, and brainwaves.

The schumann resonant frequencies can also be distorted and attenuated by clouds or heavy fog, and also: pavement, buildings, power lines, etc. with corresponding effects on our brain waves, or lack of effects and loss of this synchronizing signal (clock) or “metronome”. When we are asleep at night we [probably] synchronize frequently with the shumann frequencies, and gain mental coherence as a result, lending to the recuperative power of sleep: this can be enhanced via meditative practices.

The Moon

Another fascinating source of energetic air is caused by radon gas, that originates in water, and is drawn to the surface, via trees, plants, springs, etc, and more so during the full moon.

The tides rise and fall and so does subterranean water. Radon gas seeps out of the earth with water, and more seeps out during the full moon. Our primary source of air ions(energetic air, negative air ions of oxygen) is via radon gas that seeps from the (unpaved) ground into the atmosphere, where its radioactive forces energize oxygen molecules.

Many people experience an elevated and stimulated state awareness as the full moon occurs. Part of this is probably due to the subterranean tides of water that are brought closer to the surface, as a result of lunar- solar forces. Radon gas, a common element found in water, escapes into the atmosphere. Where the ground is paved over with roads and cities, much less radon escapes, and less energetic air is produced, By contrast, in the wilderness a far higher level radon gas escapes and generates much more energetic air than is found in the paved city environment.

Feeling at home during long space flights will be very important. “Electronically tuned environments” which simulate earths natural fields can provide comfort and health. The geomagnetic field, schumann resonance frequencies, solar flux, and air ions can be generated electronically and adjusted to personal preferences. Without these the feeling of emptiness and general dissatisfaction is likely to predominate, leading to unhappiness and dis-ease. Also, biophotons from plants, animals and humans will be very important in maintaining a feeling of living presence.

I would not be surprised if future space travelers drum together, and have ceremonies, prayer circles, parties and “house warming events” on a frequent basis. They will use their own vibes and biofields to harmonize and tune the living spaces of the craft. The materials of the craft “remember” these vibes and help sustain high moral and well being.

Have you seen any pictures of the “Orion” spacecraft?

“Home Sweet Home” and “There’s No Place Like Home” suggest that “home base” is a place where we recharge and recuperate. The vibes at home are totally compatible with oneself and family: it is nourishing and sustains.

Once again, I believe our presence in a house, apartment or RV charges it with a subtle energy, and this energy remains within the home “tuning it” to our personal qualities and vibes. It is a variety of luminous place that we have created by our own radiance, aura, or bio-field. Whenever we return to home this energy permeates us, and helps bring us back to our song, rhythm and personal power.

There are words in english that have their origin in Sanskrit. The word “home” contains the letters o and m, and might be linguistically related to Sanskrit, for english is a Indo-european language. The letter H was more recently added to our alphabet, and so the original was probably ome; note that the e is silent in home. This would make sense, for om is believed to be an invisible, omnipresent spiritual energy(Hindu-yoga) where one can recharge and recuperate: perhaps western knowledge of this came via ancient Greece ( or Alexandria, Egypt). The sound “om” represents a hidden current or power that permeates the universe.  [could om be associated with the schumann resonance frequencies?]

Another curious occurrence has been noted by many people: as the years pass, some couples begin to look like each other. This has also been noted with pets, that they take on qualities of their owner, even facial features and expressions. Could it be the same bio-field forces tuning our homes also tune (induction, resonance, modulation) between people, and even pets?

Holographic Memory

How does the environment record events such as strong emotions, or vibes from people and events that occur?

Churches develop a perceptible religious and spiritual quality, as do places of pilgrimage. Even common rooms rented at motels and hotels can have very powerful and  perceptible qualities, not always pleasant. Our thoughts and dreams can be influenced by these subtle “recordings”, and directed along similar channels.

How much information, or “data” can be “written” into an object, room, or location? and how long does this recording remain? The akashic records describe a domain where all kinds of experiences, emotions and archetypal data exists; it has no limit to the amount of information that can be “stored” there, and is believed to last forever. Perhaps our environments have a similar capability, where the impressions of consciousness, thoughts and emotions are automatically recorded. Each persons sensitivity and receptivity varies, thus the (conscious) awareness of this data, and process of acquisition also varies.

Our recent technological advances have yielded “holographic” memory, and is now commercially available. This is one more step toward huge amounts of data in a very small place. If the universe started from a point smaller than an atom, then it appears there is no limit to how much can be stored in “microscopic space”.
