In 2005 I went to the International Peace Chamber Gathering in New York at The House of Mica Peace Chamber. Joseph Rael was there with us, and we had a lot of teachings from him. Many of them I can still remember word for word. We were inside the Chamber doing a Sharing. A couple that live in Virginia spoke of the great need for a Chamber in their area as there was a Sun/Moon Dance nearby but no real community to support it.
I had spent many years wondering where I was supposed to move and now I had my answer…….West Virginia! I spoke to Joseph about this Inspiration to build a Chamber there and he told me to go eat some lunch, and that if the Vision stuck after that then it was a true Vision. I laugh every time I think of that. Well, I had some lunch and 7 years later we are living in Tucson Arizona and the Peace Chamber is ready to have a roof put on.
In that time I married in 2007 and we looked for land in WV because that is where I thought we were supposed to be but Coyote was playing with us. We found 40 acres of land in Berkeley Springs WV and put an offer in on it, but the financial system collapse happened right around the same time so we didn’t get the financing.
This is when I say “thank you Great Spirit”! West Virginia just wasn’t right for us, I was trying to stay close to my PA spiritual family and my own family and friends but it just wasn’t to be.
I took that Winter off to pray and rest and to wait to see where we were supposed to go… in March of 2009 as Spring approached I woke up and asked “what about Tucson AZ?” I finally figured out I wanted to live closer to my children who lived in CA, and that I wanted to live someplace that was essentially warm year round……we had visited Tucson in 2008 and it seemed great.
Then the work of getting our house ready for sale and finding a place to rent in Tucson till we could find our house to buy…….by March of 2010 it was on the market and sold in April, we moved to Tucson in July of 2010. We made all of these decisions based on my Intuitive Guidance which took us step by step through the process. I had a corporate job at that time, we put the house on the market without knowing how things would work out with my job. We actually sold our house and moved out of it and I didn’t get word until September 1st that I would be getting a Severance package as they were closing our facility in Malvern. Again, we were provided for beautifully.
We moved into our house last year in June of 2011 and we are nestled in the Tucson Mountains on 5 acres of land. I had taken money from the proceeds of the sale of my house in Malvern and put it aside for the Chamber construction.
I asked Keith Hagberry if he would come from Colorado and oversee/help build the Chamber and he said yes! Jack Gillette came from PA to do all the excavation work and on February 20th on the new Moon we began.
For weeks now, I’ve felt very much like I’ve been Dancing……and I am in awe of the energy and beauty of the unfolding of this Chamber. It wants to be born! We’ve had so many adventures in terms of where on the Land to put it, I was told in July to walk and Chant on the land every day so I could listen to Spirit regarding where the Chamber needed to be built. I was totally sure it should be built on this beautiful hill we own until 3 weeks before we were to begin. Then I was walking in a lower part of the property where I built the Sweat lodge and suddenly it seemed the Chamber needed to be down there. I just stayed with that feeling. When everyone arrived and we began work with the backhoe, Jack immediately hit a grandfather rock that would not be moved. All work stopped, we gathered together to confer and pray…..and decided to move it to a flat place in between two washes that run thorough our property. Joseph named this Chamber Paah coh eh or Sweet Beautiful Waters and now, it was sitting between these two washes, it seemed perfect. Jack and Keith built a semi circle or horseshoe shaped rock wall around the grandfather and each day I go down to sing and bless it and the cardinal stones around the Chamber. I had been praying for an “Ancestor’s Altar” on the land since my Father passed in November of last year, and Spirit answered my cry the first day we began work.
We don’t have a large community of people here that know of Joseph’s teachings so we hired a contractor who has fallen in love with the project. I had taken some snacks down to Jack and Keith and there were some hard boiled eggs, as Jack and Keith were working with the dimensions and shape they took a good look at the egg and the Chamber is now a perfect egg shape! It feels as if you are in a space ship when you are inside and looking at the stars. Everyone who has come to work on it is curious – what is this building, what is it for they ask….
That first week, about 3 days into things I was woken up by the Grandfather Rock who was calling me “feed me”, “feed me”. Everyone else was still sleep so I got up, got dressed and took some prayer flags and crystals down to the Chamber site. I fed the Grandfather with cornmeal and place the crystals on him, along with the prayer flags…..there are no words for the connection that is there with the Land, the Chamber and all that is. I continue to receive messages about what the Mother and the Chamber need and do my best to fulfill them. It is magical.
I am already and forever changed, my husband Pat is already and forever changed by the building of this Chamber. We are not done yet. The Chamber continues to unfold, it has a roof and is painted. The floor has been excavated. I continue to listen for what comes next. I would never have imagined the Beauty we live in but I paid attention to Guidance and it worked and continues to do so on every level of my life. Aho!
