Access the powerful energies of Machu Picchu, Peru.
Footpaths of long ago, echo forward today, through the brushstrokes of paintings created on-site.
Notice the 'portal' of light on the left side of this photograph. It is a beautiful image of the energies coming into the painting experience.
"I have been fascinated by ancient sites - especially megalithic structures for most of my life. It seems to me that the Ancient Peoples who built these sites were aligned with the Sacred energy of the Earth. Although modern historians judge them as 'primitive', no one can explain how these giant stone sites were built. They used technology we can't explain to transport, cut and align such massive boulders into place for buildings, stone circles and astoundingly accurate astronomical calculators." Susan Tower
Art prints will be available soon for these images.
Temple to the Moon
Looking across the sacred valley at Machu Picchu, you see the mountain backdrop of Huayna Picchu. It has a megalithic temple to the moon and lunar observatory at its peak.
• Lunar cycles and emotional healing.
The Inkans named it, "Intihuatana", which means, "hitching post of the sun". Each spring and fall equinox, the sun seems to stop above this pillar without a shadow, and becomes ‘tied’ to the rock.
• A sacred moment. Be in the now.
This view of Intihuatana, the cornerstone of Machu Picchu, is across the site's amphitheater. Casual conversations can be heard across its wide expanse, and it is easy to imagine that important things were said here.
• Communication, being heard, speak wisely.
"It was this view of Machu Picchu, that made me gasp when I first saw it, years ago. Somehow, I recognized it and realized I'd never seen it before, all at once." Susan Tower
This is thought to be the living quarters for the residents of Machu Piccu, Peru.
• Dreams, intuition, teaching and learning.
Temple of Three Windows
While exploring Machu Pichu, you will find many symbols with a triple theme, usually referring to the higher-self, the conscious mind, and the sub-conscious. Standing before this temple, you'll see enormous stones puzzled together so seamlessly as to baffle our modern understanding of what is possible.
• Stability of structure, integration of trinity, unknown potential
As Above, So Below
As the sun moves across the sky, you can see this carved stone at Machu Piccu cast a shadow and complete the sacred symbol called an 'Inkan Cross'. It represents three different levels of reality: the higher-self, the conscious mind, and the sub-conscious.
• Alignment of all parts of yourself, development of full consciousness.
Looking across the sacred valley of Machu Picchu, Peru, you can see the megalithic expanse of the entire location. From the terraced hillsides to the temples, this sacred site embodies an abundance of creative vision, resources, planning and the expertise to accomplish it.
• Abundance, foresight, proper planning
