A perfect way of living for both men and women. It is human nature to evolve, to yearn for understanding, expansion and personal freedom. We dedicate ourselves to improving life by seeking knowledge and learning practices, raising conscious children, helping others, defining who we are and what we wish to be. And yet for many, there remains a deep longing to embody something more comprehensive, to know lasting contentment in a world of constant change.
What if, in our search for understanding, we encounter the ancient wisdom that reveals we are both absolute consciousness and the expression of relativity in form– story and storyteller in one? The ultimate paradox. From this holistic perspective we learn to see that we create our reality based on our perceptual beliefs and how we can transform our lives by shifting our thoughts and taking ownership for our projections on the world and with those around us every moment of every day.
Awakening our consciousness is always an inside job. Our separation-based thinking begins around one year of age when our mind develops a sense of self by establishing its own point of view. This dualistic perspective and other limiting influences in our environment forcing us to overwrite our original state of Oneness to create the belief that we are separate from everyone and everything. Herein lies our individual and collective illusion as a society. In its recognition, a pathway to authenticity and personal freedom beyond what you might have ever thought imaginable is possible.
The ways of the Q’ero People of the High Andean Holy Mountain Tradition, hold the keys to our union back into the oneness we have always been re-intoducing us to the Living Peace that exists. It is the ancient wisdom we come from, it is our original home. We need this spiritual healing of our hearts.
In the high Andes of Peru live a group of indigenous people called the Q’eros. They are the first decendents of the ancient Incan Civilization. The Incan people were invaded by the Spanish in the 1500s and forced into labor of silver and gold mining.
Few escaped to the villages underneath the trees, up in the clouds in the refuge of the Holy Mountains protected by the Apus (Mountain Spirits). These beautiful people survived and saved their sacred knowledge over the centuries.
The Q’eros miraculously preserved and orally passed on the sacred Inca healing traditions and ceremonies from one generation to the next. They have continuously drawn on the wisdom of the advanced Incan people that had previously flourished for thousands of years. They have continued to develop these advanced energies, sources in healing, ceremony and connections with the spirits of their home.
In recent years the Q’ero Inca Paqos (Shamans) have seen their sacred mountain glaciers begin to melt. This was a sign from the ancient prophecy that they should come down from the mountains to share their wisdom with the western culture.
Pachamama (Mother Earth) is in dire need for her people to know, what to do, to bring back the balance in nature and society that has rapidly deteriorated in the past century. This they have willingly done and are now sharing around the world with open hearts.
The Q’ero people believe they need to share their knowledge and energy because it is crucial for the preservation of life on this planet, this meaning the survival and thriving of our very existence. The balance of the masculine and feminine energies are crucial to the balance of this world and return the world to peace and health of the mind, the body, the heart, spirt and soul of all that live within it. These ways bring us back into union, back into right relationship and to originally designed state of this world and all that is within it.
The Q’ero do not see them selves as separate from each other as we do here in the west. They deeply realize that we are one with nature, with spirit and with all others, every thing that exists. They do not know anything but unconditional and pure love for all that is. Nature has so much to teach us. If we know how to listen, respect and take time to love. The Q’ero see the divine in all and speak to each mountain, rock, plant and human and all other living beings with attentiveness and care, as we are all connected, each having a spirit and a uniqueness and wisdom or nourishment for us.
Many westerners have lost touch with nature, lost all meaning in life, lost their peace of mind, their wellness and their souls purpose. The Q’ero Inca shamans (Paqos) teach us, they guide us into living in balance and giving back to (Mother Nature, in reciprocity (ayni) and with each other. We search for something, the emptiness inside, the void that we seem to not be able to fill, these ways release that search, and bring us into the home of us once and for all. I was given the honor of having these ways taught and instilled in me, to share, heal and teach others. its an honor, it is my calling on the earth in this lifetime.
In more depth, in the western world called a The Wisdom Keeper has been given the task to heal, pass the knowledge and rituals of the culture, in this case the Q’ero Inca to others. I am, We are guardians of the knowledge of human development, The ancient wisdom, healing ways and teachings, including the gifts received from the Star Nations.
In every tribal culture there are Wisdomkeepers whose tasks include caring for Mother Earth, continuing the spiritual practices of the aboriginal people and teaching other to live in balance with all life forms.
Indigenous people are animistic. This is not “animalistic” The world anima comes from Latin meaning “spirit”. To be animistic is to be in right relationship with life force energy (spirit or soul). This is the oath I took. It’s deeply important to me it is part of who I am, it has been initiated/instilled in me. The invitation to this way was introduced to me by my sister and first teacher of these ways, Susan Palmieri. She received her first rites up in the Andes and was guided to bring them back to the west. Susan instilled the first set of rites in me. These shifted my DNA into an entirely new realm. Susan and I then received The Nusta Karpay and The K'oto Kuna Kanch'ay rites from our teacher Don Mariano Quispe Flores in 2017.
The Luminous Energy Field (LEF) — also called the light body, halo or aura — is a matrix that envelops and informs the physical structure of all living beings, and organizes the body the same way that iron filings are organized by a magnet.
It is shaped like a doughnut with a narrow axis or tunnel (called a torus), less than molecule thick, in the center. Perceived as an aura of energy and light, this translucent, multicolored bubble extends about the height of arms held above the head, the width of outstretched arms, and down into the earth about a foot.
The Luminous Energy Field is in continual flow: As well as flowing clockwise around the body there is also a vertical flow up and down through the spinal cord and down into the earth, reentering the body through the feet.
It is a reservoir of vital force — a sea of living energy as indispensable to our health as the oxygen and nutrients carried by the bloodstream. These energies are the purest and most precious fuel for life. When the vital reserves are depleted through illness, environmental pollutants, or stress, we suffer disease.
The LEF contains a template of how we live, how we age, how we heal, and how we might die. This template is based on an “archive” of all of our personal and ancestral memories, early-life trauma and wounds from former lifetimes. These records or imprints are stored in full color and intensity of emotion.
The LEF is holographic in nature and has four multidimensional layers extending outward from the body: Causal (Spirit), Psychic (soul), Mental-emotional (mind) and Physical (body). The outermost layer, or membrane, serves as a defensive cocoon in the same way the skin protects the body.
Imprints of physical trauma are stored in the outermost layer, emotional imprints are stored in the second layer, soul imprints in the third, and spiritual imprints in the fourth and deepest layer.
Imprints in the LEF predispose us to follow certain pathways in life; they orchestrate incidents, experiences, and the people we attract to ourselves. They are like dormant computer programs that when activated compel us toward behaviors, relationships, accidents, and illnesses that parody the initial wounding: Our personal history repeats itself.
When there is no imprint for disease in the LEF, recovery from an illness happens at tremendous speed. By the same token, imprints can depress the immune system, causing delays in recovery. When we erase the negative imprint that caused the onset of illness, the immune system can rapidly eradicate the disease.
Many researchers believe the LEF is simply an aura produced by electric activity in the brain and nervous system. Shamans, however, believe that the LEF is what creates and continues to mold the body, the brain, and the nervous system.
Shamans also believe that everything we perceive is a reflection of an internal, individual map or blueprint that each of us has constructed about the nature of reality. These maps are stored in the LEF, and what scientists call neural networks in our brain.
Shamans know that if they wish to change the outer world, they must begin by changing the inner maps, by healing the imprints of disease and trauma from the LEF and upgrading its quality. When we do this, we create the energetic conditions for health — and disease goes away. This is the foundation of Shamanic Energy Medicine: To create and maintain extraordinary health, so that our healthspan equals our lifespan.
Cutting-edge neuroscience is now confirming what shamans have known all along. Thanks to neuroplasticity — the brain’s ability to organize itself into higher order neuro circuitry — we can create psychosomatic health.
A despacho is a prayer bundle or offering. For hundreds of years the high shamans or Wisdomkeepers of the Q’ero lineage of Peru have used the despacho ceremony for a wide variety of occasions as an expression of gratitude, to heal physical and emotional ailments, to restore balance and harmony, or when there is a specific request of the spirit world.
Similar to a mandala or sacred creation, the despacho holds symbolic elements and the prayers of the participants. As the elements are added to the despacho, the vibration of the participants and the room raises. The despacho becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing.
Prior to the despacho ceremony, a variety of ingredients (biodegradable whenever possible) are gathered as offerings. Tangible offerings enhance the feelings and intentions of our prayers and are of great importance when praying for a community or humanity.
Suggested offerings include sugar and sweets, corn and/or other grains, coca leaves (or whatever herbs or small leaves are readily available), flowers, incense, paper (or “play”) money, salt, feathers, beans, colorful yarn, and any other item that is significant to the occasion. The elements are less important than the intent.
The ceremony can be as simple and short, or intricate and lengthy as desired. Sacred space is opened, then the offerings are selected one by one, a prayer is said over each, and the prayer is gently blown into the offering before it is placed on the wrapping. The experienced shaman will likely follow a specific pattern, but again, the intent is more important than the pattern.
Humility and gratitude and an open heart are important throughout the ceremony, and will ensure that you experience more grace in your life by becoming a better vessel for grace.
Once completed, the despacho is carefully wrapped and secured with a ribbon or string. The bundle can be ceremonially buried (for slow, steady results), burned (for quicker transformation) or fed to running waters, thus conveying the gifts to Spirit.
If the despacho is burned, someone should stay with the ﬁre until the embers are cold, if at all possible. Do not put water on the ﬁre. Ashes created in this sacred ﬁre should be buried in the earth at a later time. Sacred space is closed when ceremony is over
