The Building of Chief’s Labyrinth
The Building of Chief’s Labyrinth
The clearing is smudged with sage, around in a clock-wise direction, then to the center.
Four crystals are given intention and buried at East, South, West and North.
Red flowers are dipped in blessed water and are used to un-wind the energies and release any unwanted spirits. This is done by walking in a spiral outward from the center.
When we cleared the space and were setting intentions there was a powerful shift and change in energy as we set the crystals, unwound the space and drew out anything that needed to release.
White flower pedals are scattered in a spiral from the outside in to the center, to re-connect and strengthen the energies needed to hold this space in a sacred way.
There was then a high vibration and frequency from the nature around as we wound up our energy, and at one point the image of a spiral galaxy was seen in the grass near West tree. It was as if we were creating an energetic vortex and securing and holding it in place in a sacred manner… stepping outside of time to connect with the space’s consciousness.
A medicine wheel is created first, then a sacred spiral is laid out with string. Later, four turns will be placed into the spiral.
As the stones are brought in by both muscle and wagon, they are smudged with sage and a prayer is made to each before being placed “in line”.
Small yellow stones, red stones, black stones and white stones are carefully gathered and placed around the larger altar stones that occupy the East, South, West and North directions, respectively.
Yellow stones are placed beneath the East altar of a large yellow Grandfather stone , a gift from a sacred Purification Lodge.
Small red stones are placed around the altar of a large red skull-shaped stone sitting at the South. The cactus running along the South side will help us to remember while we are waking this section to stay on the path.
Small black stones are placed around the altar of a large black Grandfather stone sitting at West, also a gift from the sacred Purification Lodge.
Small white stones are placed around the altar of a large round white crystal stone, sitting at the North.
A flat-topped stone is used and an altar is created in the center of the Labyrinth by placing it across two half-buried rounded stones. Here also is set two smaller sacred stones, one gifted from Devil’s Tower in Wyoming and one from Superstitious Mountain in New Mexico. Under the altar is a very small birds nest that was found along the trail. Small blue and green crystals, for Father Sky and Mother Earth are placed in the nest.
The “stone man” with a tiny heart-shaped stone upon his chest, who came as gift from the Stone People, holds space at the center while the Labyrinth is slowly and carefully created. He then is moved to the East gate when the labyrinth is complete. He will remain to guard and protect this space and to greet with love those who are drawn here with sacred intent.
- An angel with wings
- A semblance of a human face
- A rainbow explosion
- A dark red skull for the South
- A black altar stone for West
- A large white, crystal globe for North
The connections between each of us who were there building this sacred object was amazing and powerful and as we completed it, the atmosphere became very emotional. The energy shift was expected but the emotional release was incredibly surprising and welcomed.
Chief’s Labyrinth and the building of it, is a Legacy event for each of us who were there.
As time moves on, this sacred path will be walked by many, and experiences and healing will come to more people and animals than we can even imagine.
