Yousef and I were extremely grateful to be invited to join Brien Forester, and his fabulous wife, Irene, on his September 2014 “Techno-Spiritual Tour” of ancient sites in Peru and Bolivia, along with Stephen Mehler and an insightful group of like-minded individuals!
After witnessing Brien’s enthusiasm—and his lectures about these ancient “Incan” sites during our tours together here in Egypt these past two years, we were excited at the prospect of viewing and experiencing them for ourselves. We were not disappointed!
We explored the remnants of a vast Incan Empire that originated in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries C.E. and stretched for more than 2,000 miles from Ecuador to Chile at the time of the Spanish arrival in 1515. However, even more exciting was the evidence of a far more ancient and advanced civilization that the Inca seemed to have held in high esteem and built their structures on top of and/or within the far more ancient megalithic structures. We saw much to indicate that the Incan civilization sprang up after a huge cataclysm and inherited these sites—similar to how early dynastic and pre-dynastic Egyptians inherited the legacy of a far more ancient Khemit?
After flying into Lima, Peru, we met with the group and spent our first day visiting two museums. As a researcher of ancient symbolism worldwide, I was immediately struck by the similarities with other cultures, including ancient Khemit.
The artifacts in these museums spoke to me of a reverence for our eternal cycles, as well as a deep understanding of our natural world and cosmic forces. The many feline images, as well as serpents and birds held an almost eerie syncretism with the symbolism we experience in Egypt—and many other ancient cultures worldwide.
Throughout our journeying together at sites in and around Cusco, Sachsayhuaman , the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu in Peru, and at Puma Punku and Tiahuanaco in Bolivia, I was delighted to discover the many site references to stellar and solar patterns and cycles as well as symbolic references to how these patterns are reflected within us! Through a shared very ancient heritage or similar advanced knowledge and wisdom- indigenous cultures worldwide seem to be referencing an energetic reality that our modern day scientists are just now beginning to discover.
The image on the left in the picture below (taken at the Larco Museum, in Lima, Peru) is an almost mirror reflection of the ancient Egyptian Neter, Amun, who represents the stage of the sun at night, when it is ‘hidden’ from our view.
Dynastic Egyptian and Incan ‘religious‘ icons are reflective of forces of nature, and of solar and stellar cycles. Their architecture was also designed and built to recognize the position and cycles of the Sun, Moon and stars. Both civilizations erected monuments which referenced the position of the Sun at the solstices, and marked them with great festivals.
As Above, so below—echoed on multiple levels … Egyptians celebrated the birth of the Sun/Son , as the Neter, Horus, during the Winter Solstice, the time when the days start to become longer again after shrinking to the shortest day of sunlight during the year. However in the Southern Hemisphere this moment occurs during the northern hemisphere’s Summer Solstice— currently on June 21st – and was known as Inti Ramyi—the birth of the Sun God, Inti.
The ancient Egyptians likened the flow of water to the energetic wave patterns of all living entities that exist in our three dimensional reality. This same idea of energy being related to the flow of water flow is reflected in the Inca’s fascination with the Milky Way. The entire Sacred Valley of the Vilcanota River near Cusco, was considered a mirror of the Milky Way in the very same way that the Egyptians viewed their Nile River Valley.
I discovered that the Inca, located below the Equator, focused much of their attention on the dark spaces or rifts between the stars of the constellations in the Milky Way, in direct opposition to how ancient cultures north of equator, including Egyptians, focused on the constellations themselves to describe universal cycles and creation. Many of their stories and mythologies speak to the same cycling of ages and how the cycles of the stars affect the ‘seeding’ and fertility of the agriculture—and life on earth.
What’s even more fascinating is that Egypt, Peru and Bolivia all show stark and prolific evidence that a far more ancient and very advanced civilization inhabited earth thousands of years earlier than we’ve been taught. These megalithic structures built with bio-organic elements are impregnated with a wealth of knowledge and wisdom just waiting to be tapped.
“ A tradition which has been credited by many learned men over the centuries is that the Ancients encoded their knowledge of the world in the dimensions of their sacred monuments.” – John Michell
Another similarity with the sites in Egypt was the creative employment of running water throughout all of the sites. The sophisticated channeling and use of running water was evident everywhere and probably had multi-level significance. The channeled waterworks at Tipon in Peru were amazing, and reminded me of the Red and White Springs in Glastonbury that originate from the Tor. The water channels and fountains at Tipon once depended on two water sources. One source, surface water from melting glaciers, has recently dried up due to changes in climate, however, the other source, a series of deep underground springs from the sacred mountain known as Pachatusan, are still flowing today.
Some of us couldn’t help but drink the fresh and sparkling water flowing from the series of channels that you can see in the picture on the far right below. The series of waterways begins with one channel that is then divided into two, and then four — only to be drawn back into two and then one again with complete precision, emulating the holographic ‘breath of life’. What is really being achieved here and why?
Below are pictures of ‘sound niches’ in structures at Coricancha in Cusco, and Ollantaytambo along with inserts of a sound niche and image of the ‘hospital’ at Saqqara in Egypt. The use of sound frequency in healing practices at the very ancient ‘hospital’ at Saqqara, has long been known about thanks to the legacy of work of Abd’el Hakim Awyan, and Yousef, Stephen and I readily recognized additional features, built for sound and frequency enhancement in Peru. I was particularly delighted to witness this explanation being given and displayed by what seemed to be a ‘mainstream’ tour guide to a small group of travelers –while I was exploring the site of Ollantaytambo. The resonance achieved when sampling these niches myself was fantastic!
We also viewed many areas of ancient earthworks – hills and mountains that were intentionally terraced for what many believe were for agricultural purposes. Moray is an archaeological site near Cusco, Peru consisting of several huge terraced circular depressions, the largest of which is about 30 meters (98 ft.) deep, as well as an irrigation system. The purpose of these depressions is uncertain, but their depth, design, and orientation with respect to wind and sun create a temperature difference of as much as 15 °C (27 °F) between the top and the bottom. Some believe that the Incas created the site to study the effects of sun and temperature on crops.
We couldn’t help but recognize that the shape and stepped design could have been used for harmonic acoustics. When Yousef played his flute at the bottom of the site, it could be heard clearly at the top. Was sound frequency also an element in the enhancement of their agricultural processes…or was the site used for some alternative purpose altogether?
I couldn’t help but notice the unique design on this bowl in the picture below, that I spotted at the National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History in Lima. It seemed strangely similar to the patterns of the earthworks at Moray.
We had heard Brien speak about the knobs found on the megalithic structures in Peru when comparing them to those found on the Giza Plateau in Egypt, so it was a treat for us to see them for ourselves and speculate on their purpose. The general agreement was that they might have been used for some sort of frequency or sound regulation.
I can’t speak of touring with Brien without mentioning elongated skulls! Brien has brought the truth of this ancient phenomenon to light—for me and many others. Yousef and I have since discovered the little known fact that there have been many such skulls found at pre-dynastic sites in both Upper and Lower Egypt. Brien is leading the way for much more in depth research and attention to be given to where, why, who and when this ancient race of what I believe were humans…once walked the earth.
I can only begin to express all of the remarkable and mind boggling things we viewed and experienced on this adventure with Brien and Irene in this short article. It was absolutely magical! It was not only a feast for the mind….but, absolute sustenance for the body and soul as well. Oh yes, we were physically challenged and benefited from the exercise of climbing up and down the sharp inclines that these sites, nestled in the Andes Mountains, offered us. Yet we could also find the time to feel and ‘breathe in’ the powerful energies emanating from the structures and the earth itself in both Peru and Bolivia. I loved every part of this well planned adventure! I am completely enchanted with the people and sites in Peru—and felt a profound connection with everything I encountered in Bolivia. I can hardly wait to return with an entirely different series of questions and intentions!
