    heady rocks 

    i was at machu picchu last week for a few days and my bones are still vibrating. i am sure most of you know a little about this place, but check it:


    machu picchu is the onlyInca city that escaped Spanish greed, colonization and catholic conversion despite being on the sacred Inca trail that stretches from ecuador to chile. there are terraces covering the whole mountain in which the Incas experimented with farming different varieties of crops and domesticated over 150 types of potato. the stones used to make the site were brought from as far away as a few kilometers to the top of a mountain. some stones weigh in excess of 10-20 tons and are placed perfectly through out the complex without mortar. the stones are so perfect that they are stable in earth quakes and in some places are cut to fit together with over 27 faces. the rocks used are white granite that have a quartz content of over 80 percent. the Incas did not have the wheel or metal stronger than weak bronze which they used little of, instead of metal tools to cut the rocks the Incas used hematite from nearby quarries. the solstices are marked by multiple statutes that become full on the special days representing ancient geometry, animals and gates to “capture” the sun from descending into winter.

      Having loved crystals since I was a child (spending all my allowance on them instead of toys) I have known about that cave for a while, which I believe is in Mexico. They stopped allowing the crystals to be taken from the cave and when you go inside you have to wear a mask because it is selenite (real soft stone) which leaves tiny particles flying around inside. I can imagine the energy there would be SO INTENSE, as selenite is of a REALLY high vibration typically associated with the crown chakra.

      I agree, it would probably be on of the most intense places to be! wow! and apparently it is usually 110 degrees F minimum! hmmmm, that’s just a little over the temperature of the room i teach yoga in… how awesome would it be to do yoga ON a GIANT selenite crystal? in a cave made entirely of selenite crystals? aaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!! i wanna do it 🙂
