These beautiful sacred grounds were created out of a higher truth, a vision given to me from Spirit in 2003. It was the year after the near death experience that opened me up to my Higher Truth again. I was looking for a house to purchase, to make my home. Having been travelling the middle world as a shaman again for quite some time I suddenly found myself in this spot where you see the domed structure. I had no idea where I actually was standing, only that I could see what was around me. To my left was a house, and out of this house came many people. There was a long line of people. I know now these were souls who would be lifted into the light of Truth, and I would come to know this is so because of my own healing, my own ascension. These souls were many past lives of my original soul, many souls in my life now, and the souls of those yet to be on Earth. As I watched them walk to the area in which I was standing I began to rise up into the sky. I was foreseeing my soul’s ascension into Truth. About a week following the vision, having visited a house for sale, I recognized immediately it was the house in my vision. I walked to the sacred spot without delay and cried as I felt my soul come home. Today, after years of preparation the sacred grounds are complete; my mind and body is healed, my spirit is present, and the sacred spot is a powerful vortex opening one up to the light of the celestial realms. The energy of my guides is present within the grounds: Black Elk, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Red Cloud and many other Natives, with many of Christian Energy including Black Elk too. Their energy is present wherever I am, but for these sacred grounds it is for ceremonial reverence and reunion with The One Great and Holy Spirit. Let me show you around…..
Here you see a winding path descending into the sacred grounds. The grounds were dug into the body of our Mother Earth. As I cut through my own body and descended into the inner realms within that darkness so too did I cut through the body of Earth and found healing within Her. Our Divine Mother will always love us unconditionally; She will always provide for us, not only our food and shelter, but also the very fabric of life itself, what we need to sustain our journey through life. And so when I descended into the womb of Mother Earth I also opened up my Holy Grail, my spiritual womb, to receive the Spirit of my Father, Truth.
We enter from the West. The West is our body, coming into our body. The West is where all things come to an end and begin their journey of life once more. The powers of the West bring us the ability to destroy, to let go, and the ability to create, to make new life. The West is where we gain power and strength for our ascension journey. When we do ceremony we come in from the East, that way we are facing West in humility and saying we are not worthy to look Great Spirit’s Light in the face, but with the powers of the West we will be cleansed and made ready. So we are asking for help when we face West.
In 1931, when Black Elk, Ben Black Elk and John G Niehardt were talking about Black Elk’s great vision in preparation for the book Black Elk Speaks, a white tipi was erected. On the tipi were painted scenes of the vision. I am delighted to also have a white tipi now with intentions of scenes of my vision and the vision Black Elk had. Within the tipi many talks take place, also shamanic gatherings based on shamanism, and especially on the truths portrayed by The Two Roads Trilogy.
The Medicine Wheel is comprised largely of white quartz which is found abundantly in the mountain next to me. I am grateful to the Spirit of the Mountain and to these beautiful Stone People for their presence here.
The Medicine wheel is a symbol that shows the passage through each day, each year, each life, and even each moment. It also represents the path of creation itself. It is a circle with four directional pillars as in North, South, East and West or Mind, Emotion, Spirit and Body. Ceremony with the medicine wheel can help you go within, to let go and receive new light, to open up to the wisdom of Great Spirit. When you walk the medicine wheel with understanding you not only heal your soul but you gain great insight into any situation within your life. Within the seven directions of the wheel: the four pillars plus Great Spirit, Mother Earth and the mystery within, is found the path of The Two Roads and The Four Ascents into Truth. This is as I said above, a journey found within every moment, therefore Truth is something we can ascend to in every moment; it is here right now within you.
