In the late 1980s I attended a conference in Michigan known as New Sakkara (named after the ancient temple in Egypt), usually attended by creative people in various disciplines–– scientists, healers, shamans, dowsers, geomancers, astrologers–– from all around the world.
The topics included vibrational healing, alternative technologies, Egyptology, Kabbalah, the geomagnetic grid system and the function of sacred sites (pyramids, towers, monuments, medicine wheels, temples), and others. I was most intrigued to explore what I had learned about dowsing in a workshop which explored the earth’s geomagnetic grids, and the creation of sacred space .
Shortly after arriving back in Virginia, I went to visit my family’s home at Trinity Point Farm, nearby in Churchville. I walked the land with a hand-held compass and found that the needle would “wag” off course from magnetic north, by a factor of about ten degrees. I climbed to Trinity Point proper (a natural high spot on the farm), with a set of L-Rod type divining rods. At the small meadow at the top, I located several strong magnetic lines and two magnetic intersection points or “vortexes”. These are consistent with magnetic points of power where sacred sites such as temples, obelisks, pyramids and stone circles are traditionally placed. I was motivated to create a medicine wheel– a circle of stone– and had to decide which of these two vortexes was the correct one.
Initially, I considered vortex number one. This location was well lit, level and seemed fine. Vortex number two (about twenty feet away) actually manifested a stronger magnetic signal and although (in my rational mind) I was leaning toward my first choice, I was still indecisive. Finally, I stood at the second spot and in an open and prayerful way, asked, “Is there anyone trying to communicate with me at this time?” The L-Rods slapped sharply across my chest with an affirmative signal, my body surged with energy and I shivered with goose- flesh. I heard (with everything but my physical sense of hearing) a chorus of voices saying:
“Yes! We’ve been trying to reach you for a very long time now.
We are so glad that you are here, please speak with us.”
As it turned out, I was in touch with ancestral spirits of what was probably the ancient Monacan tribe, who guarded that sacred place. I was informed by the ancestors that this was the exact center of a ritual circle, which had been in place for 17,000 years. As the ancestors continued to speak to me, a story began to unfold: the entire basin area of Trinity Point traditionally served as a place of prayer, medicine and teaching, and when different tribes gathered there, they laid down their weapons. The land at Trinity Point had served as a sacred place for numerous tribes to converge in a peaceful, and healing way for many thousands of years.
I consulted with the elders once again, they invited me to take on a mission to undertake a project to help heal, restore, balance and re-enchant the land at Trinity Point. To create a temple of the heart, intended to help raise the consciousness of planet earth and all of its inhabitants. This would be called Trinity Point Project and the greater vision of this concept would become more clear as I proceeded.
