Wirikuta is the Heart of the World

My Brothers and Sisters,

Wirikuta is the Heart of the World. Many places in the world are the lungs such as the canopy forests of the Amazon and the Northwest; the coal deposits across the world are the liver for our Mother; the great rivers such as the Mississippi and the Amazon, the Rhine and Yangste are the arteries of Her and the smaller rivers and creeks flow as veins; the Great Lakes, for example, hold the precious waters of the World as the organ of bladder and reservoirs have been created to be the kidneys.  But what is the Heart?

The Heart is a place where we, the people, can hear the Gods sing.  The Heart is the Center of Life; it’s the great connector,

it’s the web that holds It all togehter.  The Heart is the last organ to die, for when the Heart dies death prevails to the entire organism.  The brain and other organs can die but the organism isn’t dead until the Heart stops beating.

Once a year I go with my compadres and comadre to Wirikuta; I have for 12 years.  It is the Heart of me; it’s where I, as a marakame, hail from. This place, this most magnificant place, is threatened by our very people who do not want to change.  What is there to change that would make a difference in mining Wirikuta or not? Lifestyle.  We have lost our connection to the Great Circle of Life. Pray that we can teach our children and our children’s children this way of life and that humanity finds a way to live without the want and emptiness that is kin to greed.

The Jicarero, my four brothers and sisters, are charged with carrying the offerings from the Tuki (the principal Tuki in Mexico, (see to Wirikuta each year to ask for blessings for our people. We come home and bring these blessings with us and offer them to our communities. This is a way to honor this Sacred Place and receive the gifts from It. It’s also a way that we pray to preserve the Rising of the Sun and the Song of the Gods.

Wirikuta still needs our prayers.  The organism, Mother Earth, and her organs, like the Heart, is still in danger of being exploited by the monstrous machine of humanity–The Government has tried to sauvely deter the Lovers of our World’s Sacred Places to get us to think we can relax our prayers and thoughts toward the Heart of the World, while they (the miners) find another doorway in to exploit her Sun, Father Tau.  Go to this site which you can translate into English for more information and YouTube vidoes of the Huichol and the cause:

My last blog entry, Birth of the Sun Saved, talked about the government’s deal with the Canadian mining company. We were so happy on that day–I felt it to be a DAY OF JOY…and it was.  And now, we must stay vigilant as Grandfather Fire, Tatewari says, “The best way to prevent destruction is by praying”.

Tonight is our Mesa Hamlet Community Fire. We will hold vigil for a while with our prayers toward Wirikuta.

In love and in Heart, Deanna

Concerning the Assemblage Point

Notes for Carlos Castaneda Readers Concerning the Assemblage Point

In 1972 Robert A. Monroe a businessman published a book entitled: “Journeys Out Of The Body”. This is an extraordinary book containing graphic diary accounts of his and the supernatural experiences of others. This book also contains specific instructions and methods that the reader can practice to experience astral travel. Robert Monroe’s work makes a number of significant disclosures that are relative to the Assemblage Point information here.

In 1958, Monroe found himself leaving his physical body to travel via a “second body” to other locales far removed from our consensus physical and spiritual realities. He conducted a series of experiments that conclusively affirmed the existence of a ‘second body’ that could be projected from his physical body. Using disciplined mental techniques, he could shift his conscious awareness into his ‘second body’ and travel to distant locales while his physical body remained behind in a trance state.

While on one of his frequent out of the body excursions, he discovered that his second body was attached to his physical body via a cord consisting of hundreds of tendon like strands packed neatly together. This cord was attached to the centre of his back and the hundreds of strands or filaments spread and fanned out to form his second body. This suggests that his projected “second body” had an Assemblage Point entering at the centre of the shoulder blades. Another intriguing disclosure of his was that when he occupied his second body, his body image was reversed, his left leg and left arm was on his right side and vice versa. The transposition of his consciousness from his physical to his projected second body somehow produced a “mirror image” effect. Monroe assumes that he is not unique and that every human retains the possibility to project or possess a “second body”.

He is not alone, Dr. Carlos Castaneda undertook specific shamanic instructions to gain mastery over his dreaming double or ‘second body’. His books contain many graphic accounts of the journeys that he and his companions’ made into supernatural realms via their dreaming doubles. The Assemblage Point is intrinsic in the shamanic teachings of Don Juan Matus as recorded in Castaneda’s books both in relation to the physical body and the second body or dreaming double. Don Juan discusses the importance of the Assemblage Point of the physical body with regard to health and disease and this is recorded in Castaneda’s book: “The fire From Within” published in 1985. Robert Monroe’s book “Journey Out Of The Body” suggests that there is also an Assemblage Point attached to the back of the ‘second body’ or dreaming double as does the later books of Carlos Castaneda. To avoid any confusion with this work and my previous publications, the Assemblage Point information that I have presented is entirely to do with the Assemblage Point of our physical body and emotional level of health as it is on this planet and not the Assemblage Point of the ‘second body’ or dreaming double existing in some other realm or parallel universe.”

Aboriginal Medicine Men

The Assemblage Point is not a recent fabrication nor a product of the New Age phenomena, it has some interesting and obscure roots that can be traced back at least several centuries. The Assemblage Point knowledge and teachings have been a closely guarded secret held by American aboriginal medicine men. Only in recent times has the knowledge begun to infiltrate into western culture. Many patented medical drugs have been derived from the herbal and mineral cures discovered and used by aboriginal medicine men and women. Drug companies are actively gathering information and samples of herbal medicines and their uses from remote aboriginal tribes around the world. They chemically extract the active principals and synthesis the drug in their laboratories. A large bulk of modern drugs owe their inventiveness to the perceptive powers and bravery of our ancient tribal medicine men and women to “see” and explore the plant and mineral kingdom for the health benefits of their tribal group.

Tribal medicine men and shamans can be men of outstanding character and personality. They are masters at controlling and using the power of morphogenic fields and altered states of consciousness both for medical and spiritual purposes. Their psychic powers and knowledge extend far beyond that of the average western individual. Many aboriginal medicine men are specialists in the workings of the human mind and its influence on the body. Some of them have undertaken disciplined investigation and developed techniques where mind works on mind. For some American Indian medicine men, the Assemblage Point, the epicentre of the human energy field, is one of the fundamental principals of their power and knowledge. Their belief systems are not in contention with atomic and quantum science.

The Shaman’s Blow

The anthropologist and best-selling author Carlos Castaneda wrote ten books that sold millions of copies world wide in seventeen different languages. Carlos Castaneda, who held a PhD in anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles, said that in the early 1960’s while researching medicinal plants in Arizona, he met a Shaman that he portrayed in his books as Don Juan Matus. Later, Don Juan moved to Sonora, Mexico and Castaneda followed. For more than three decades, Castaneda claimed to have been the apprentice of the Yaqui Indian sorcerer Don Juan, who said that the old sorcerers shifted their apprentices assemblage points to move them into states of heightened, keenest, most impressionable awareness as well as to keep them in apprenticeship bondage.Throughout this time

Castaneda continued publishing books about his apprenticeship with Don Juan. In the beginning of his association, Don Juan had used ‘power plants’ containing powerful hallucinogenic alkaloids to loosen Carlos Castaneda’s Assemblage Point. Don Juan claimed that Castaneda’s Assemblage Point was so stubbornly fixed that only power plants had sufficient power to shift it to another location.

In his book, ‘The Fire From Within’, his benefactor and Shaman, Don Juan warns Castaneda about the extreme dangers of an ‘involuntary’ shift of the Assemblage Point due too perhaps disease, physical exhaustion, the unwitting use of drugs, hunger, thirst, or even an emotional or physical crisis. A fact of great importance claims Don Juan, is that it is the position of the Assemblage Point that dictates ‘how we feel and how we behave’.

Although Don Juan used powerful hallucinogenic plants to shift Castaneda’s Assemblage Point, he gave Castaneda stern warnings of the dangers of uninformed use of drugs and other adverse incidents that can cause an involuntary shift. Throughout his book Castaneda records Don Juan’s intimations that an involuntary or unconscious shift of the Assemblage Point causes serious physical and mental problems, even life threatening.

On another occasion in his book, Don Juan is reported as saying that people who unwittingly shift their Assemblage Point by taking drugs, can induce a feeling of numbness and cold and have difficulty in talking and thinking; as if they were frozen from inside. Despite these warnings, the 60’s burgeoning drug culture adopted Castaneda’s books and work as a licence to use drugs. Don Juan clearly knew what he was talking about, but at no point throughout this books, does Castaneda demonstrate to his readers how a dropped or misaligned Assemblage Point can be corrected.

Don Juan also spoke extensively to Castaneda about the process of death and the “gap” at the navel. Unfortunately, Castaneda does not provide any practical or useful scientific information that enables the reader to assimilate Don Juan’s medical knowledge of the Assemblage Point. It is valuable information which begs many questions:

1. What is the Assemblage Point?

2. What is its significance with physical and mental disease?

3. What is the essence of “the extreme danger”?

4. How can we check the location of our Assemblage Point?

5. How can we shift and correct its location if detrimental?

6. How can we gain stability of our Assemblage Point location?

Water & Oil do not mix: CALL TO ACTION~June 14th, 2015

Dear Water Wheel Family and Lovers of the Earth,

I need your help to bring the Vibrational Medicine of the Water Wheel Ceremony to help transform a recent environmental disaster & to give support to the Waters that have been affected.
As you probably already are quite aware, the Santa Barbara, CA. area where I have been living and doing ceremonies since February, has experienced a serious oil spill. The seals, dolpins, pelicans, fish & other sea creatures have suffered tremendously, many losing their lives.  The oil slick has already spread over a hundred miles to the south, polluting our beaches and requiring expensive & exhausting clean-up procedures.
I have been working with a number of environmental groups here to turn this tragedy into a call to action and an opportunity to stand in our strength to speak out against the negligent and destructive technologies & practices of the oil companies.  Several lawsuits have been initiated by the Santa Barbara County as well as citizen groups to demand that the oil companies take responsibility for the damages they have incurred.
But you and I  know that working on a vibrational and energetic level is sometimes the most powerful thing we can do.  I am calling together a large community Medicine Water Wheel Ceremony to focus our intentions toward harnessing the spread of the oil and loving our ocean back to it’s highest vibration.  Sending out our healing songs and prayers to all the creatures impacted by this tragedy, and awakening people to the power of joining our conscious & heart-felt intention to serve the Earth.
We need to order a large quantity of rose quartz crystals to be shipped to us ASAP for this ceremony & need your help with funding this.  Any contribution will help, no matter the size.  Please go to the website:  and click on the donate button which will take you to our PayPal account.  Anything donated in the next two days will
help us to purchase the crystals for the ceremony.
Thank you for adding your energy, wherever you are, to heal the Waters!!!
Keep the Waters Flowing!
In gratitude,
Marshall “Golden Eagle” Jack
Keep the Waters Flowing

The Second Agreement: Don’t Take Anything Personally

The the second agreement of Don Miguel Ruiz’s classic, “The Four Agreements.”

I need a reminder today. So I open his book to that chapter and read:

Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally… Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.

Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements they have in their own minds…Taking things personally makes you easy prey for these predators, the black magicians. They can hook you easily with one little opinion and feed you whatever poison they want, and because you take it personally, you eat it up….

But if you do not take it personally, you are immune in the middle of hell. Immunity in the middle of hell is the gift of this agreement.

I’m not there yet. I am way too sensitive and way too vulnerable to the opinions of others. Where I HAVE made progress the last month is that I no longer read articles from a website that published material that upset me too consistently. I took a hiatus from that site. I also go through the equivalent of the FDA security process at the airport whenever I open a book. “Is this going to make me feel worse?” I ask myself, and if I can’t answer the question, or I find myself nodding, then I put it on the shelf to read when I reach a more resilient place.

But what I CAN’T control are the opinions of the people that I’ll run into during the day, those who haven’t managed a severe mood disorder and try to convince me that acupuncture, meditation, and yoga cure absolutely every illness. Or those that say the way I run my house is wrong because usually nothing is organized. I can’t control those situations.

So I sit down and try to soak in as much of Ruiz’s message that will penetrate the gray matter of my brain. He writes:

Even the opinions you have about yourself are not necessarily true; therefore you don’t need to take whatever you hear in your own mind personally…Don’t take anything personally because by taking things personally you set yourself up to suffer for nothing….When we really see other people as they are without taking it personally, we can never be hurt by what they say or do. Even if others lie to you, it is okay. They are lying to you because they are afraid.

There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally. You become immune to black magicians, and no spell can affect you regardless of how strong it may be. The whole world can gossip about you, and if you don’t take it personally you are immune. Someone can intentionally send emotional poison, and if you don’t take it personally, you will not eat it. When you don’t take the emotional poison, it becomes even worse in the sender, but not in you.

As you make a habit of not taking anything personally, you won’t need to place your trust in what others do or say. You will only need to trust yourself to make responsible choices. You are never responsible for the actions of others; you are only responsible for you. When you truly understand this, and refuse to take things personally, you can hardly be hurt by the careless comments or actions of others.

If you keep this agreement, you can travel around the world with your heart completely open and no one can hurt you. You can say, “I love you,” without fear of being ridiculed or rejected. You can ask for what you need.

It’s Mother Earth vs. Father Greed in New Pine Ridge Uranium

The emotionally charged documentaryCrying Earth Rise Up!was showcased to a full house at this week’s Sedona International Film Festival in Sedona, Arizona.

Filmmaker Suree Towfighnia and film editor Sharon Karp were on hand for the screening.  “This is the fourth screening of the film,” Towfighnia said. ” We literally finished production just last week.  So I feel a sense of relief and accomplishment.”

The film, narrated by Tantoo Cardinal, focuses on two Oglala Lakota women on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.  One is Elisha Yellow Thunder, a young mother with a daughter, Laila, who was born with cloacal abnormalities that causes internal organs to be connected.  Laila’s only functioning kidney fails at age 8.  Elisha’s quest to determine the cause of her daughter’s birth defects leads her to the water on her homeland.  Majoring in geology, she is mentored by Dr. Hannan LaGarry, a geology professor and author of 5 year study on hydrology the Ogallala Aquifer who teaches her to study water and uranium outcroppings on her homeland as a possible cause of the high number of birth defects and stillborn babies on Pine Ridge.  “My little girl’s story is too big not to tell,” Yellow Thunder said.

Water brought Elisha together with Debra White Plume, a frontline activist who is challenging Canadian mining giant Cameo, who operates the Crow Butte uranium mine near Crawford, Nebraska, near the Pine Ridge reservation.  White Plume filed an intervention opposing Cameo’s 10 year renewal license and application to expand their mining operation in December of 2007.  She is the only individual intervener in this case against Cameo.  In the film, White Plume attributes the in-situ leach mining operation at Crown Butte for contaminating the aquifer that flows under her homeland.  Dr. La Garry serves at the expert witness in White Plume’s defense.

“Without water, there is no life,” White Plume says in a quote that is featured on the film’s website. “It’s like Mother Earth against Father Greed.​ ​You’re either for uranium or against it. There is no middle ground.”

“This work is about protecting precious water, for all of us, for Mother Earth and our coming generations,” White Plume said at the Sedona screening. “This film will help tell our truth to the world, all over the world water is in shortage, there are droughts or floods, or water is so contaminated it cannot be ingested by humans. We tell our truth based on our love of our generations.” Her words earned a standing ovation from the crowd.

This is Towfighnia’s second production that features Oglala Lakota activist Debra White Plume.  Her first collaboration with White Plume was a pro-hemp film entitledStanding Silent Nation.

The film is scheduled to screen in Portland, Oregon; Sante Fe, New Mexico; California; Nebraska; Navajo Nation and other venues.
