CHACO CANYON, NEW MEXICO

 

New Mexico has a unique contrast of many energy site elements from power spots, vortexes, Native American pueblos, breathtaking canyons, atomic energy centers, top-secret missle bases, undergound bases and more.  Remains of the advanced native civilizations in the region can be seen in the form of well-constructed cliff dwellings where houses, apartments, and whole villages show advanced states of achievment.

 

Located in northwestern New Mexico, Chaco Canyon is called the "American Cradle of Civilization" as it represents the most important concentration of archaeological remains in the USA.  It was the spiritual center of the Anasazi nation.  This 12 mile long and 1 mile wide canyon was a thriving urban center 300 years ago. 

 

The stone built towns in Chaco Canyon were individual complexes known as "Great Houses" with kivas or ceremonial rooms built inside the Great Houses.   The largest Great House is called Pueblo Bonita that contained both dwellings and ceremonial centers.  The Anasazi beleived Pueblo Bonita was the center of the universe and it was built with exact measurements aligning the walls to north, south, east and west with elaborate lunar and solar alignments with fall and spring equinoxes. 

 

The largest kiva in this canyon as well as being the largest in the southwest, the Casa Rinconada, has a special window for viewing the summer solstice on June 21st.

 

The Anasazi designed intricate water systems, eathenware pots and a ergonomic city structure.  The Anaszi had trade and spiritual contacts with their Toltec/Maya cousins to the south. 

 

Radiating out from the Chaco complex is a mysterious arrangement of straight lines and wide roads that extend 20 miles into the desert.  These roads link up to 75 other Ancestral Pueblos and Great Houses and lead to small shrine-like stuctures of shaman activities. 

 

Aerial photographs show more than 400 miles of roads and straight lines are astronomically aligned and archeological research confirms an enormous grid of shamanistic geography.  Some researchers believe these roads and lines charted the areas energy grid lines.  Other researchers beleive these markings represent out-of-body experience familar to ancient native shaman.

 

Scientific studies have proved the entire massive ceremonial buildings were designed and constructed by the Anasazi in a complex celestial pattern throughout a vast desert region.  It was a center of astronomy and cosmology with a primary purpose for the construction of the elaborate buildings and roads to be integral parts of aastronomical celestial patterning.

 

The Anasazi thoughts are preserved in the language of their architecture, roads and light markings.  Landscape, directions, sun & moon and movement of shadow & light were the materials used by the Anasazi architects and builders to express their knowledge of an order in the universe.

 

Oral traditions relate many indigenous native clans with a direct relationship with Chaco Canyon including the Navajo.  10 Hopi clans trace their ancestry Chaco canyon and revere the canyon and all its ruins as extremely sacred. 
 

Today's southwestern Indians beleive that the spirits of their ancestors still inhabit Chaco Canyon and that it is a spiritual place to be deeply honored and respected. Many who come to Chaco Canyon have mystical experiences that are described as mystically being trasported back in time.
