The Aramu Muru Doorway

The difference between hearing about a place and experiencing it for yourself is akin to the difference between being told there is a God and having a mystical experience. There is no substitute for the experience. While Jorge Luis Delgado had written about and spoken of his rediscovery of a site that had come to be known as the Aramu Muru Doorway, I was keen to visit the place myself and had that opportunity the day following the Cutimbo air ceremony.

Near the Aramu Muru Doorway

Many years earlier, Jorge Luis had come upon the place, which was not far from a main highway, but which had seemingly gone unnoticed for a long time. He had been following a ley line down the valley in which the site sits and upon approaching, realized that it was special. The area was comprised of a large sandstone wall with a door-like indentation in it. Jorge asked permission of the place’s spirit guardian before approaching the “doorway” that he suspected was a portal to another dimension. What he experienced when he connected with the doorway was a flurry of visions, one of which was a vision of Aramu Muru passing through the doorway into another dimension.

Fellow Travelers at the Aramu Muru Doorway

Some years later, Jorge Luis began taking tours to the site and when a foreign journalist interviewed him about the place, he told the journalist about his experience there. The journalist published the story, proclaiming that Jorge Luis had rediscovered the ancient Aramu Muru doorway, and the name stuck.

Not only did the name stick, the place became somewhat famous.

But who was Aramu Muru, anyway? That depends on who you talk to. Some legends suggest that Aramu Muru was the first “priest/king” of the Incas, also known as Manco Kapac. It is said that he is the one who took the Solar Disc that had been hanging in the Sun Temple in Cusco and brought it to Lake Titicaca. The Solar Disc was believed to have originated in Lemuria and by bringing it to Peru, the Brotherhood of the Seven Rays (essentially, a group of Ascended Masters) was, in essence, establishing a presence there—a presence intended to foster brotherhood, service, and relationship with Spirit.

While visiting the Aramu Muru doorway would be a worthwhile endeavor at any time, it seemed particularly appropriate on February 13, 2010—one day before the Solar Disc activation ceremony was to take place. In fact, we were visiting the site while making our way to the dock where we would catch our boat to Amantani Island. There was symmetry to our going to the doorway at this time. It is thought that Lord Aramu Muru left the earthly realm by passing through a portal, disappearing into another realm—as Jorge Luis had seen in his vision—and we were about to continue his work by activating the Solar Disc.

The site is an impressive one. The doorway and two channels on either side of it are in the midst of a large stone wall. The stone is pinkish in color, reminiscent of our red rock in Colorado. The doorway itself is a bit wider and a bit shorter than what we might think of as a standard door and is indented.

Channels to the Left and Right, Doorway in the Middle

No, there are no hinges and no doorknob, nor is there no way to “open” the “door” using standard, physical methods. The door is wider at the top than the bottom with a small ledge on either side that can be used to rest one’s hands while kneeling in front of it. There is also a small, round indentation that some have suggested might be the place where Aramu Muru placed the Solar Disc to “open” the door. Jorge Luis has pointed out that this opening is more or less aligned with the third eye (depending a bit on one’s height) for those kneeling at the doorway.

Fellow Traveler Standing in a Channel

The channels on either side of the doorway are thought by some to balance the masculine and feminine energies. Jorge Luis noted, during his first experience with them, that they seemed to be energy vortexes, one spinning clockwise and the other counterclockwise. As our group approached the doorway, we spontaneously formed a line, each person stopping to position him or herself in the channel to the right of the doorway while waiting for a turn to experience the doorway, itself.

Q'ero Shamans

My experience of the channel was one of energy, which I felt coursing through me as I positioned myself snuggly within it. Just leaning against the channel stone sent vibration radiating through my body. Once at the doorway, I knelt and placed my forehead against the rock. And as I did, I felt the doorway thin and then dissolve, being replaced by an energetic portal. I passed through this portal and, once inside, saw three tunnels—one straight ahead and the others to my right and left.

Saint Germain (an Ascended Master and one of my personal guides, sitting on a council of twelve I often find myself before during meditation) appeared before me. He was delighted to find me there. He told me it was not yet time for me to pass down any of the tunnels, but assured me that, having found myself before them, I would be assisted by him in traveling down them during shamanic journey, dreams, and at other times when I was in an appropriate state to do so.

I came to understand that the first tunnel—the one straight ahead—led out into the cosmos and, from there, to many places. The tunnel to the right led (via tunnels that forked from it) to Mount Shasta, Amantani Island, Machu Picchu, and numerous other places that are connected energetically. The tunnel to the left led to Lemuria, which now seems to be in another dimension. At some point, I looked up and realized that there was a column of light piercing the space and branching into two other columns, thereby forming a v-shape over the area, connecting with the tunnels.

I was comfortable in this place with Saint Germain and didn’t really want to leave, although I did want to explore the tunnels. Still, some part of me knew that others were waiting on the other side of the doorway, back where my body was still connected to the stone wall. They wanted a chance to experience the doorway, too. I knew I needed to return. I also knew that now that I had been on the other side of the doorway, I could energetically return if I wished to do so.

Once back outside, I stood up and realized that I was only barely in my body and still very much in an altered state of consciousness. My entire body was vibrating and I could hardly move. I knew that it was pointless—not to mention unnecessary and maybe even counterproductive—to try to make my way to the second channel, so I did not even attempt it. One of the Q’ero shamans helped me down and I sat for a time, collecting myself a bit. Then I wandered the area around the doorway with one foot in alternate reality while the other was back on earth. I couldn’t talk, nor did I have any desire, really, to connect with anyone else. I was vibrating at a different frequency than usual and wanted to stay with it for a time.

Surrounding Area

It is said that some disappear through that doorway. I hadn’t disappeared, but I’d been through it  and I felt energetically aligned with the work to come.

    Such a wonderful description of your journey to other dimensions, Melanie.
    It reminded me of experiences I have had in the sacred lands around Moab, Utah. The rock energy is so powerful and seems to be a natural “doorway” to other, non-linear places in our perception. I think it’s why I love the Rockies so much- so many magical rocks!

      Cindy,

      For those of us who have an affinity for the rock people (like you, Laurel, and me), being amongst them can, indeed, open us to other dimensions. And it is one reason we’re drawn to the Rocky Mountains.

  2. Anne Doyle Says:

    Such a rich experience, Melanie. The description is very moving. I can’t help but wonder how one returns from such energy? I hope you will talk (or write) more about this sometime. You are so giving of yourself…thank you for sharing so that we might have a glimpse of other realities.

    All good wishes,
    Anne

      Anne,

      I don’t know about others, but I returned changed by my experiences in Peru.

      I do believe that my training in shamanism and my experiences doing shamanic work have opened me to having and integrating experiences like these. In part, it is related to the process of becoming a “hollow bone”–one who becomes a conduit between this dimension and others. And I am currently writing a book on the writer as hollow bone–a book to assist writers in becoming that kind of conduit as a way of assisting them in their work.

    I too love the ancient mystical energy of rocks. How wonderful to hear about this amazing portal and your experience with it.

  4. Gail Storey Says:

    You really take us inside this experience with you, thank you, Melanie. I’m heartened and energized to sense these dimensions into the deeper truth of our being. Your photographs are lovely, too.

    • Melanie Mulhall Says:

      Gail,

      I, myself, was heartened and energized by my Peruvian experiences. I’m about to make another post, so I hope you will stick with me on the trip a while longer.

    I’ve experienced angels who lead me to a book in a library as part of a sequence of publications…. only, now I find that that publication doesn’t exist… yet I still have pages I tore from it…

    Yet I do not believe in this rock being a doorway. The ‘door’ was an unfinished temple. I was abandoned when a plague swept the area and was never finished.

    Nothing exists there except your imagination.

  6. Christine Poulin Says:

    Hi, I’m very interested in visiting the Doorway. I’m in Copacobana right now and I’ve been looking for an agency who has a spiritual approach… I’ve been sending emails to a few agencies and none has replied so far. I’m going back to Puno tomorrow and would love to have the chance to go to the Portal…. Do you know an agency who does this tour with a spiritual aspect ?
    Thanks.
    Christine

    • Melanie Mulhall Says:

      Christine,

      Look up Kontiki Tours. Jorge Luis Delgado, the chacaruna who rediscovered the doorway, owns that company and some hotels in the Puno area. He conducts tours. He’s a friend of mine. Tell him I sent you.
