Handmade Ceremonial Cusco Q’ero Chumpi Healing Stones

HANDMADE SHAMAN CUSCO Q’ERO ANDEAN CHUMPI HEALING STONE – 7 POINT SET (can be ordered via Ebay)

Chumpi Khuyas energy Stones

Andean Chumpi Healing Stone Set

The khuyas energy stones, are stones used by a line of Andean shaman, who work with ñawis (chakras) and the energy structure called chumpi (power strips).

Every Ñawi and chumpi has an assigned corresponding energy stone, which are distinguished by their shape (for example, the number of sides, two three or four) or recorded or containing drawings, the total number of khuyas is usually five, seven or nine.

The ideal material from which they are made is red or black hematite ore, having high strength and magnetic properties such as glass and magnetism at the same time, they can be found in soapstone and alabaster (Huamanga Stone), which was easier to work with.

The khuyas are used to open ñawis (ñawi kichay), and to extract the savings (designed energy), and then close them; and to weave chumpis (chumpi away), i.e. fill the cracks and strengthen our energy body (poqpo) to create an energy envelope (walthay) that conveniently protect us.

Before using the stones for any purpose they must be cleaned, in the Andean world the stones have identity, vitality and energy and therefore deserve attention and even intangible affection. In this regard the khuyas stones come alive; there are ways to purify them.

For example:

* Let them stand in the light of the full moon, to clean and to recharge them with energy (Sami energy).

* Allow drops of tap water, from the bath or shower.

* Leave cardboard wrapped in letter or in the refrigerator overnight, the cold has a purifying power.

* Let the stones stand at dawn (at sunrise), for an hour.

While this is being done, you can meditate and visualize different ways of channeling the energy that falls on the stones, accepting the Sami energy (pure energy) as an everyday routine.

For those familiar with the practice of reiki, which is meditation and guided visualizations, there is a psychic form that can be applied to the stones, when you have cleaned them and in a meditational position, the stones are held with both hands, and then visualize the above techniques in a mental and energetic way, this method is only possible if the stones have been previously purified by their owner, physically discharging any gravitational force that they may contain.

If we work with an Andean table or (misha) or other power objects, stones are efficient channels for transmitting refined energy, you can even charge other stones for massage or energy work once our khuyas are operational.

The khuyas are only interested in their owner, and the combined affect he receives, in this regard and is not recommended to use the khuyas outside.

 

 

Chumpi stones (sometimes called Apu Stones) are healing stones from the Peruvian Andes. These stones are worked with for clearing the energy centers, protective work, and grounding work.

“Chumpi” is a Quechua word that means “belt”. This refers to the stones use in administering what is called “The Bands of Power” ceremony. The Bands of Power are protective rings or fields of energy that surround a person. They are each linked to an energy center and act to seal a person’s energy field and ward off harmful energies that would normally find their way through our natural energetic defenses.

The word “Apu” is the Quechua word for “mountain” and refers to the stones’ link to the Sacred Mountains. Each stone is linked to a Sacred Mountain and carries the energy of that mountain with it. When the Chumpi Stones are placed upon a person we can wake up the energy of the mountains as well, which enables a person to ground and anchor themselves within their own power. They are then able to sit within themself “as a mountain sits”… firm, strong, and self-empowered.

The Chumpi Stones are also worked with to open, clear, and empower a person’s energy centers. Just as our physical body has different organs that maintain different life functions, our energetic body has energy centers (sometimes called chakras) which also maintain different life functions- but on an energetic level. Sometimes these energy centers become blocked, closed, or weakened. The Chumpis can draw out dense energy and blockages as well as open them and balance their flow.

The Chumpi Stones that we work with in our practice come from the Sacred Valley region of the Cusco Peruvian Andes. They are made of Marble- Like stone and were hand carved by the shamans from that region. These Chumpis were also blessed to us by a Q’ero (traditional Andean shaman). They are powerful tools for healing.

Chumpi Stones:The Stones hold the keys to the cosmology of the Inca culture and have  the power to generate a web of connection  with the elements of creations; Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and pure spirit.

The name of the  7 sacred mountains are: Apu Sacsayhuaman, Apu Salcantay, Apu Ausangate, Apu Pachatusan, Apu Senccapicol, Apu Machupicchu and Apu Chicon.

Wednesday, June 21 and Thursday, June 22 – Journey within the Amazon Jungle in Peru

Personal notes:

We travelled to another lodge in the Amazon Jungle which was less luxurious although the adventure was a different journey altogether. The Amazon Research Center plus the guides was something that will stay in my remembrance. Every area that we went through had a different kind of energy like a portal way or some would also call it a passageway that Mother Nature created for us.

On one of the last walks the women group was left on their own at a certain point because we were supposed to meet up with everyone. It was amazing how we all collaborated together and formed a circle to connect with All. One of the activities we did was to connect our hearts together, singing a song for Mother Earth and than the imaginative story telling occurred. Allowing from the word the woman before you had spoken to continue the story onwards. After awhile two guides came to bring us back to the lodge.

Twice canoes were set along the river to paddle. The last time we all went on a lake for the sunset. The tranquil energies were breathtaking and certainly here spirit were with all of us.

Here we went on walks in the jungle to explore the plant and animal life there.

Hereby some photographic impressions of the area – especially old trees – flowers and insects:

 

The clear sky and stars in the evening were amazing. Hereby a photograph taken by http://www.perujungle.com

General information about the Research Center.

THE AMAZON RESEARCH CENTER

In 2007 Amazonia Expeditions  launched its new Tahuayo River Amazon Research Center (TRARC), a long-term conservation initiative undertaken in consultation with government offices in Iquitos (Loreto, Peru), Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, the Missouri Botanical Garden, and the Chicago Botanic Garden. Tahuayo River villages’ Comite de Gestion approved the undertaking at its May 2007 meeting in return for the facility’s sharing of project findings with the region’s indigenous villages.arc-river-level-2

The Research Center initiative was developed to promote new collaborative projects in conservation biology, environmental studies, cultural anthropology, and more in the Area de Conservacion Regional Comunal de Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo (ACRCTT). Auxiliary support is provided by TRARC projects that bear particular promise toward helping promote sustainable developments among ribereños culture in this large and precious portion of western Amazonia. Work with our scientific board members, for example, will augment villagers’ knowledge of their rainforest plants, while progressively illuminating the spectacularly diverse plant communities of ACRCTT for modern science.

Primate Research

Current research on primates is helping to safeguard the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo’s spectacular primate fauna: 16 species representing every South American primate family and spanning the continent’s range of body size. Recent observations suggest that the new approaches to conservation at ACRCTT will be important for area primates. Primate census of the trail grid was initiated in 2007 and continues to the present time. Students and tourists can choose to assist in the census or in habituation of particular social groups of each of six large-bodied species of monkeys.arc-aerial-2

This work is occurring on a research trail grid located behind the Research Center Lodge. During all-day follows of particular social groups, volunteers’ work includes progressively more systematic and detailed records of data for contribution to cumulative primate databases.
The trail grid behind the research center lodge covers 55 miles (+70 km) spread over more than 1000 acres (2200 hec). It is the largest trail system offered in the Amazon. It is the best hike known in the Amazon for viewing primates in their natural environment. Twelve species of primates have significant populations on the grid. Other mammals living on the grid include: coati, tamandua, giant anteater, tapir, peccary (2 species), deer (2 species), ocelot, jaguar, paca, agouti, agouchi, armadillo, pygmy tree squirrel, Amazon tree squirrel, opossum (many species), rat (many species), sloth (2 species), kinkajou, tayra, and bat (approx 70 species).

Personal notes:

Returning to Lima to be met by Carmen and Patricia. There was still some time in between so by bus we once again went into Lima which was quite busy seeing that the locals had extra days off. Unfortunately, we only had some time to have a wonderful lunch in the restaurant together. It is amazing how restaurants are started in homes. This restaurant was certainly one to remember. In various rooms of the building you could sit down to have a meal. The toilet was the bathroom of the building with a bath available as well. After this lovely lunch we went back to the Lima Airport for the night flight to Paris. Three other members of the group flew via Madrid.

At the certain area were the Amazon River meets the Tahuayo River we spotted dolphins. The pictures below were taken by Amazonia Expeditions on their website seeing it was too difficult to really catch a good photograph of them.

In the evening we also went out with the boot and spotted Monkeys. One of the monkeys was cared for by the Amazonia Expeditions team and is now mother. The guides Andy, Christian and Raphael make a special round to attract the monkeys.

There was also a kind of bear type in the tree that was difficult to spot but we were able to see it from a distance. I have taken some photographs from the website of Amazonia Expeditions for this.

A Birding Experience from our Main Lodge on the Tahuayo River

The Tahuayo River basin is one of the great experiences for birders in the upper Amazon basin. On excursions from our two lodges we have documented over 600 species of birds. But while the overall bird list is tempting, it doesn’t give an expectation for what an average day will yield in the way of a birding experience. So for four days plus one early morning of a couple of hours, our head birding guide Edson Galan treated staff biologist Andy Bicerra to a typical birding excursion, just from the main lodge.

A total of 174 different species of birds were seen on this mini birding experience make a link to the attached list}. Andy was very impressed by the skills of his colleague. He was amazed with Edson’s knowledge of birds. He said, “Edson is a walking, talking book of Amazonian birds. He is very patient and has eyes and ears that are remarkable in finding birds.” Andy made some notes of the GPS of Edson’s favorite birding spots and will be making a map in the future. At sometime in the future, when we can shake Edson and Andy free from their other duties (for the next several months Edson will be guiding and Andy will be working with a primatologist) we will also do a typical 4 day survey from the remote Research Center Lodge.

The Reintroduction of Woolly Monkeys into Nature

Dorilla and two siblings (Andrea and Steven) were small infants when they were confiscated from the illegal pet traffic in Belen floating market in Iquitos. At the time we were friends with the officer who confiscated them and he gave them to us to raise at our tourist lodge on the Tahuayo River. The visitors to the lodge loved to see these happy, affectionate little monkeys, but within a year they had grown to be large, strong and aggressively curious. One time Dorilla ripped the screen off the top off of the bathroom of a woman tourist and climbed down to sit on her lap while she was on the toilet.

At this point we knew we had to find an appropriate situation in the jungle for them.  We felt that they should not be introduced into a wild ranging woolly monkey troop. Lodge owner Dolly Arevalo Shapiama had an idea to form a collaboration with the people of the tiny village called San Pedro. San Pedro sits on a small tributary of the Tahuayo River, about 7-8 meters wide; on the other side of the river is a nice forest with many fruiting trees and legumes that form the diet of woolly monkeys. Dolly offered to pay the village a monthly stipend to make sure the woolly monkeys would not be hunted or otherwise harmed by people.

At first the monkeys were doing fine, but about a year later a Harpy Eagle killed Steven.  Dorilla and Andrea must have learned to be more cautious because they lived unharmed for several years thereafter, until Andrea succumbed to illness and died in 2011.  Then Dorilla was alone. She seemed very lonely as every time our boats passed by her home, en route to visit the poison dart frogs of Frog Valley, Dorilla would call us to stop, jump onto the boat, check all of our bags and backpacks for food, then present herself to be groomed by tourists on the boat. So at this time we started to make it a point to stop and interact with Dorilla every time we brought people to Frog Valley.

The woolly monkey Chepa was kept as a pet in the village of Esperanza, on the lower Tahuayo River.  The family has a child who is paralyzed as a result of polio.  As part of Dolly’s work with her Angels of the Amazon foundation, www.angelsoftheamazon.com Dolly provided special bed, chair and other facilities and services to help the child and his family. But Dolly never liked to see how the pet monkey was kept, always tied by a rope, that left open infectious wounds.  The monkey was always obviously in pain.  For 4 years, every time Dolly visited the home she would ask the mother to give her Chepa. The mother never agreed, saying that her stricken son loved his pet, until March of 2012, with the monkey appearing near death, she agreed.  Dolly took Chepa to a veterinarian in Iquitos who treated the infected wounds. After she had recovered, Chepa was brought to the main lodge to be raised as Dorilla was.  Although it was several years old, because of malnutrition and abuse, she was only the size of a baby woolly monkey.

We had planned to keep Chepa for several months, but she seemed either very afraid or very angry at the presence of people.  So we didn’t know what else to do except maybe introduce her to Dorilla in her forest home off the Blanco River.  Knowing that woolly monkeys may kill strange woolly monkeys we were very anxious about doing this, and ready to intervene.  Upon releasing Chepa into a tree by the river’s edge, Dorilla immediately climbed down to her.  Chepa looked terrified.  But Dorilla made soothing vocalizations, hugged her and comforted her. It was amazing to see.  After a few minutes Dorilla climbed down to the boat to get some bananas.  She called to Chepa, but the little female was too wary and kept her distance.  Then Dorilla took a banana up into the tree, peeled it and gave it to Chepa! Dorilla continued to bring Chepa her food on our visits, until about 3 weeks, at which time Chepa gained confidence to come to the boat on her own.

The people in all of the Tahuayo villages have come to know how much our tourists love the rescued monkeys on the Blanco River.  So a couple of months ago a man from the village of El Chino approached Dolly and said he had a relative in a village in another tributary system of the Amazon, who had a little male woolly monkey named Rocky.  He thought it would be nice if the two females had a male companion.  He acquired the monkey from his relative and gave to Dolly in August 2013.  We brought him to a veterinarian to make sure he had no disease or parasites to infect the others and then released him at the Rio Blanco site.  Both females immediately accepted him.

By 2016 Rocky had reached maturity and in May of 2016 we discovered that Dorilla had given birth. Thereafter when boats stopped Dorilla reacted aggressively and we felt there was a danger to tourists. In late May we captured Dorilla and her infant and transported them to our research center lodge,some 40 km distant from where she had been living. Under the watch of our staff biologists we released the monkeys near to a wild troop of woolly monkeys. Over the next month the wild monkeys accepted them into the troop. We have continued to see Dorilla and young with the wild troop from time to time.

The Munay Ki – Rites of Passage and Initiation

http://www.thisisenergy.com/munay-ki

Munay Ki comes from a Quechua word that means ‘I love you.’ The Munay Ki consist of nine rites of initiation, which are transmitted energetically to those individuals who wish to acquire deep power and wisdom to act as stewards for our planet and all life on it. The rites connect him or her to a lineage of medicine men and women thousands of years old. Traditionally, a student would spend years in apprenticeship in order to be given these rites. Today we live in a different world, where everything is changing at a rapid pace, and many people are increasingly becoming aware of their abilities and roles in protecting their environment and healing themselves in it.

 

There exists some controversy with regard to the Munay Ki rites as the original rites were “modernized” by Alberto Villoldo, Phd, to make them accessible to people of these modern times.  I do not believe that this has weakened the essence of the rites.  If anything, the wide-spread support amongst peoples of our planet at this time for these rites, has and is serving to focus and strengthen their potential, for, as with everything, energy follows thought.

 

An introduction to the Munay Ki

 

The Rites can be transmitted as part of a healing session, on a one-to-one basis, or in a group.

 

  1. Healer’s rites – supporting the healer within, the Healer’s rites connect the individual to a lineage of luminous beings from the past – the ancient ones, who come to assist in one’s personal transformation and during healing ceremony.  These rites awaken the healing power to manifest in our hands so that we can transmit this energy to everyone we touch.  There is tremendous spiritual assistance available to all, both in our everyday life and in healing our wounds and those of our ancestors.
  2. Bands of Power – providing protection. The Bands of Power are 5 luminous energy belts, representing the 5 elements, which are woven into our luminous energy field for protection.  They act as protection filters and break down any negative energy directed at the individual, into one of the elements.  These energies then feed our luminous energy field, making it stronger, rather than making it weak.
  3. Harmony rites – strengthening and harmonising the chakras, these rites are a transmission of the 7 archetypes into each of the chakras.  Starting with the root chakra, an individual receives the Archetype of the Serpent, this is followed by the Jaguar, the Hummingbird and the Eagle in each following chakra respectively.  Into the last three chakras are transmitted the energies of the three Archangels:  the Keeper of the Lower World (our unconscious), the  Keeper of the Middle World (our waking world), and the Protector of the Upper World (our superconscious).
  4. Seer rites – seeing with the heart, feeling with the mind as extra-cerebral pathways of light are installed, connecting the visual cortex – the third eye to heart chakra.  This connection awakens the “inner seer” and one’s ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and Spirit.
  5. Daykeeper rites – accessing healing powers of old, these rites connect an individual to a lineage of master healers from the past.  Traditionally, these Daykeepers were midwives, herbalists and healers who assisted in the running of everyday affairs, in births and deaths of all creatures.  Daykeepers are able to call upon ancient altars to heal and bring balance to the earth.  They call on the sun to rise each morning, and can bring humans into harmony with mother Earth.  These rites help heal our inner feminine, so as to enable us to step beyond fear, to practice peace.
  6. Wisdomkeeper rites – stepping outside of time and space, these rites connect the individual to a lineage of luminous beings from the past and from the future. The rites are associated with the snow-capped mountains, perhaps a distant memory of our ancestors from the Himalayas, from where the sacred rites originated. The Wisdomkeepers are the wise ones, many of whose spirit has taken residence inside the mountains on our planet, guiding, teaching and transmitting knowledge.  These rites help us heal our inner masculine, teaching us to step outside of time, to taste infinity.
  7. Earthkeeper rites – connecting to the Earthkeeper lineage, these rites connect us to the archangel guardians of our galaxy, to the stewards of all life on Earth.  They connect us to the stars and to our Sun.  They bring back into memory an individual’s ability to dream the world into being.
  8. Starkeeper rites – evolving into Homo Luminous. These rites connect and anchor us firmly to the time after the Great Change, a time toward which evolution is taking us.  Our physical body, our DNA, begins to evolve into that of the Homo Luminous.  We start to age differently and become resistant to disease as our DNA is re-informed.
  9. Creator rites – accessing divine co-creation.   These rites awaken in the individual the Creator-light within her or him. They bring us in touch with a profound sense of stewardship for all creation – from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of galaxies.  Once attained only through direct transmission from Spirit, these rites can now be transmitted from one person to another.

Saturday, June 17, 2017 – Journey within Peru – Flight from Cuzco to Lima and Lima to Iquitos.

Saturday, June 17 – Flight from Cuzco to Lima followed by flight Lima to Iquitos.

Personal notes:

We all got up early to go to the Airport of Cuzco. From Lima Airport to fly to Iquitos and stay overnight there.

Iquitos is a very busy traffic town with many people as well. Most people travel within the city via bus, motorcycle, or the ubiquitous auto rickshaw (mototaxi, motocarro or motocar). This is a modified motorcycle with a cabin behind supported by two wheels, seating up to three persons. Transportation to nearby towns often requires a river trip via pequepeque, a small public motorized boat. With a small group of ladies we went into town to explore do some shopping at a supermarket and had dinner there. Quite a experience. The Hotel had many lovely pieces of Art on the walls as well. We shared a room with the three of us.

Iquitos, also known as Iquitos City, is the capital city of _Peru’s Maynas Province and Loreto Region. The largest metropolis in the Peruvian Amazon, east of the Andes, it is the sixth most populous city of Peru.

It is known as the “capital of the Peruvian Amazon.” The city is located in the Great Plains of the Amazon Basin, fed by the Amazon, Nanay and Itaya rivers. Overall, it constitutes the Iquitos metropolitan area, a conurbation of 471,993 inhabitants consisting of four districts: Iquitos, Punchana, Belen and San Juan Bautista. It is the largest city in the world that cannot be reached by road – it is accessible only by river and air.

The area was long inhabited by indigenous peoples. The founding date of the European city is uncertain. Spanish historical documents state that it was set up around 1757 as a Spanish Jesuit reduction by the banks of the Nanay River. The Jesuits gathered local Napeano (Yameo) and Iquito natives to live here, and they named it San Pablo de Napeanos.

In the late 19th century, the city became the center of export of rubber production from the Amazon Basin and was the headquarters of the Peruvian Amazon Company. The rubber boom attracted thousands of European traders and workers, some of whom amassed wealth with the high-volume production, processing and trade in rubber. The city’s economy was highly dependent on PAC, controlled in the nation by Peruvian businessman Juan Luis Arana.

The operations of PAC’s forces in the Basin, who kept indigenous workers in near slavery conditions through use of force and harsh treatment, was investigated by Roger Casement, the British consul-general in Peru. He had investigated labor conditions for natives in the Congo Free State when it was under King Leopold’s control, reporting on the abuse of thousands of workers. His 1913 exposure of abuses of Peruvian workers caused a reaction against the company among the several British members of its board and many stockholders. The company struggled financially and lost backing in the UK. In addition, rubber seedlings had been smuggled out of the country and cultivated on plantations in Southeast Asia. As the plants matured, the competition undercut prices of the Peruvian product. With the decline of the rubber industry, many workers and merchants left Iquitos.

As one of the leading cities, along with Manaus, in the huge Amazon rubber boom (1880-1914), Iquitos was influenced by the numerous Europeans who flocked to it. Architecture and cultural institutions established during this period expressed their own traditions. An opera house and Jewish cemetery were among the institutions established.

Later in the 20th century, the city and region diversified its economy. The region exported timber, fish and their products, oil, minerals, and agricultural crops. It also derives considerable revenue from tourism and related crafts, as well as bakery, and carbonated drinks and beer. By 1999, the city had consolidated its four municipalities.

The architecture and historical treasures reflect the colonial and early 20th-century European period, attracting an increased tourist trade in the 21st century. In addition it is a center of ecological tourism. It has become a major cosmopolitan city with strong roots in the Amazon, featuring a complex history and cuisine, Amazonian landscapes, nightlife, and a growing cultural movement.

In 2012, 250,000 visitors were recorded. Many have been attracted since the Amazon rainforest was ranked as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Iquitos inaugurated international flights to the main hub of Panama City in 2012, with shared destinations with Miami and Cancun. Its international airport is expected to become one of six international air centers of Peru. The city was ranked as sixth on the list of “10 leading cities in 2011” of the Lonely Planet guidebook.

The Historic Center of Iquitos has several structures that have been designated as part of the Cultural Heritage of the Nation: the Cathedral of Iquitos, the Iron House, the Old Hotel Palace, Cohen House, and more than 70 other buildings. Other landmarks are the Plaza de Armas; Jiron Prospero, an avenue that is the site of several shopping and historical areas; and the lively neighborhood of Belén, often dubbed the “Amazon Venice” for its many waterways. The city is also home to the Amazon Library, one of the two most important in Latin America.

The city can be reached only by airplane or boat, with the exception of a road to Nauta, a small town roughly 100 km (62 mi) south (which is not connected to the country’s main road network). Ocean vessels of 3,000 to 9,000 tons and 5.5 metres (18 ft) draft can reach Iquitos via the Amazon River from the Atlantic Ocean, 3,600 kilometres (2,200 miles) away.
