sacred sites

The Native American people are real superheroes. They took a stand and fight for their rights on their own land at Standing rock. Indigenous people have been surviving police brutality for months to save clean water and environment. They were under attack and suffered from cold and injuries. They were even forced to eat thanksgiving dinner on top of a sacred burial site.  

This is insane. And Bernie Sanders knows. And he stands there, like one of them, drawing attention of the government and the media.

The Milky Way really is the center of the Universe, and we are the only intelligent species in the galaxy. The reason we haven’t made contact is because the other intelligent species in the universe views the Milky Way as a sacred off-limits holy site.

Dakota Access Pipeline workers bulldozed sacred sites and graves in North Dakota on Sunday, and I found out today that one of those graves belonged to one of my relatives…

I’m not even from Standing Rock and they desecrated a grave of my family member, Charles Picotte (Eta-ke-cha). He isn’t just a long dead man people have forgotten about, this was the grave of a man whose face I know, who I have pictures of in family albums. A family member that lived through the transition to reservation life. I’m upset. I’m angry. I’m shocked right now because it hits home. He was a translator and one of the signers of the Treaty of Fort Laramie, a treaty that 3 of my relatives signed, a treaty they are breaking RIGHT NOW with this pipeline.

I’ve never set foot in Standing Rock, I don’t even know anyone from Standing Rock. But this has affected me all the way over here in Washington, and this is an attack on the rights of native peoples. People need to share what’s happening right now, how they’re desecrating these sacred sites, hiring paramilitary, unleashing dogs and tear gas on protesters defending the health and future of their community, plus their treaty rights, because the media is ignoring all of this. Sign the petition to stop it, send donations to the Sacred Stone camp, raise awareness. This is about the interests of a corporation being put before indigenous peoples rights and health.

Today, President Obama announced the Bears Ears and Gold Butte National Monuments, protecting over 1 million acres of sacred sites, scenic vistas, and important natural and cultural resources in the desert landscapes of southeastern Utah and southern Nevada. To date, the President has protected more land and water than any other president in history—and today’s actions build on that progress.

Connection between Meridians of Human Body and Universal Meridian Lines.

The Meridian Lines, also called Acupuncture Lines, in and on our Bodies are Connected to the grid lines that encircle the Planet and intersect at acknowledged Power places such as Machu Picchu, Sedona or lines on which the Pyramids in Gizeh were built, as well as other Sacred places around the planet like Stonehenge, Glastonbury and others.These lines continued out and Connected us to a vastly larger grid, tying us to the entire Universe, the Cosmos we’re living in. There are axiatonal lines throughout the Universe, the Galaxies, the Solar System, our Planet and our Bodies. These axiatonal lines Connect all things with Divinity (Creator, Source, Spirit, God, however you may call it), and these lines also follow the Chinese Meridian Lines in our Body, but at a deeper level.

At one point in time, we became Disconnected from these lines and lost the Fullness of our Inherent Connection to the Cosmos, distancing us from our previously rapid and expansive rate of Evolution. A choice which Disconnected our axiatonal lines from all around us and prevented us from reconnecting to our Divine Source. We must remember our Connection, and to re-establish it, so we can eventually Reconnect to the vast Intelligence that’s around us. Each of our Bodies contains its own set of Energetic Lines and Points. Although only remnants of what they once were, these lines and points continue to serve as our Interface with the Universe: a Channel that facilitates our Communication of Energy, Light and Information between large and small, Macrocosm and Microcosm, the Universe and Humankind.

Detailed studies of the geographic alignment of famous ancient world sites have revealed interesting correlations. According to the diagrams presented above, the Great Pyramid at Giza is aligned with Machu Picchu, the Nazca Lines, Easter Island, Ur, Ollantaytambo, Persepolis and Mohenjo Daro along a straight line that makes a great circle around the Earth. This global effort was performed within a margin of error of less than one tenth of one degree of latitude. This would suggest an ancient knowledge of the shape and dynamics of the plane by seemingly different cultures who existed at different time periods, according to the traditional Archaeological view. Most strikingly, this sort of grand scale engineering was well before current accepted thought allows room for human consciousness to be advanced enough for such beliefs. 

The Great Pyramid at Giza is not only located along this ancient “great circle” of latitude which many researchers speculate was an ancient “equatorial plane” of the Earth, but it was constructed at the geographic center of all landmasses of the Earth. All other sacred sites, including churches  synagogues and cathedrals, are geometrically tied to this physical point on the Earth sphere through an interlocking energy grid known as ley lines. These ley lines originate and end with the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Ley lines are one of the most enduring Earth mysteries. A network of prehistoric pathways perform a criss-crossing of the country-side. Some believe them to have mystical significance. Ancient cultures certainly knew of and utilized these connections. Ley lines, also known to some cultures as “dragon lines,” are a phenomena that most people have heard of but few really understand. Indeed it would be fair to say that no-one understands their complete function and workings, as their existence is driven by a force not currently understood by the prevailing scientific paradigm. Ley lines interact with and shift with the Earth’s magnetic field. They seem to be formed by geometric principles that may exist at a higher dimension of organization of light, sound, energy and above the material plane.

On an esoteric (focus on the inner workings of things) level, the soul form is thought to attach through these electromagnetic energy grids which create the the illusion of space and time. These higher dimensional forms of consciousness are drawn down from a formless state and are linked back to one source of creation — through a web of sorts — a myriad of grid energies governs all creation within the material dimension. This pattern of creation has been described as the same creational design — the Flower of Life —  which has been a concept described across mystical traditions. The tree of life is how mystics describe our connection into matter. This is described in different ways through different traditions. The soul is linked to physical reality through this grid matix pattern driven by sacred geometry and linked to the universe through a series of dimensions that serve to order reality.

Cultural appropriation and cultural cannibalism may be defined as the buying, the selling and the consuming of other peoples’ cultural artifacts, images, values and beliefs as well as sacred sites without permission of the culture being used. Cultural cannibalism is an insidious and hideous part of colonialism as it is part of the process of assimilation, what I would call a deliberate attempt to eradicate those beliefs, values, attitudes, behaviors, language, religion and practices of a [native] culture that are in contradiction or in conflict with the dominant [society].

The destruction of sacred indigenous sites by Westerners is absolutely no different than the destruction of sacred sites in the Middle East by Daesh.

Absolutely the same. The only difference is the historical value that’s been placed on one site by those writing History™ vs. the sites they don’t know about, care about, or are “in the way.” It’s a form of cultural and historical genocide as well as terrorism and we have to do everything we can to support those communities and what they want/need.

Bodhi (Sanskrit: बोधि; and Pali) in Buddhism is the understanding possessed by a Buddha regarding the true nature of things. It is traditionally translated into English with the word enlightenment, although its literal meaning is closer to “awakening.” The verbal root “budh” means to awaken.

The Mahabodhi (Great Awakening) Tree  in  Bodh Gaya in the Indian State of Bihar. Said to be a direct descendant of the tree under which the Buddha sat when he attained enlightenment. One of the most sacred sites for Buddhists.

Apache Activists Fight Mining Company

Indigenous activists were fighting against the global conglomerate for years. Then John McCain snuck in authorization to sell the Apache sacred site into a otherwise unrelated bill in 2014.
