The Silent Zone

I suspect there are many subterranean geologic anomalies that cause unusual distortions of the geomagnetic field, and also,they can be periodic rather than constant. I have visited the Silent Zone, in the desert of northern Mexico, and in the few hours I was there did not notice anything unusual, other than very poor radio reception, which would we expected in remote areas such as this. It is a location that has been very impressive, in the past, for some people, using different varieties of electronic technology. We read that Werner Von Braun went to the silent zone, to consider how a missile could be deflected from its course, and this indicates the site is extraordinary.
Here is a very interesting story.  Did you see, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”?  It starts in a remote desert of northern Mexico.

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.

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.
