Ananda shared the following story her comments about the origin of the Maya. I’m grateful to learn more about the destination and culture of my pilgrimage! Thank you for sharing, Ananda!
Also in the land of the Yucatan we have an extraordinary legend that talks about the time when Lord Itzamna came from Atlantis, before the island sank. The legend says:
The Queen of Atlantis, in silence, came to Lord Itzamna and spoke about the Prophecy:
“Itzamna, I have told you that you are the best and wisest priest in my kingdom, and for this reason I have chosen you. My astronomers have read the skies and say that our land will disappear when the next moon comes… I want you to choose a group of families from my kingdom and three of the wisest priests to carry the writings (codex) that tell the story of our people and what will happen in the future.
You will go to a place that I will show you and there you will found a city… Under the main temple you will guard the writings of the past and those yet to be written, to preserve the history of our land, Atlantis.
You, and the chosen ones will leave in nine canoes and sail in the direction of the West… Nine days later you will find a new land with rivers and mountains and you will land there… When you find water, that is the place you will found the City… “
After sailing for two days the sea was peaked with waves so high that two canoes sank; the island they were leaving was covered with a dark sky filled with lightening. Itzamna thought it was the end of his country, just as the High Priestess pronounced…
Itzamna arrived at the land with no rivers or mountains… and the people with him asked “what is the name of this land?” He responded, “This is the Land of the Mayab the Land of the Chosen Ones.”
Lord Itzamna began to build the first Sacred Sites in the Land of the Mayab, and one of the most remarkable is Chichen Itza. It remains Atlantis because the people, Itza or Itz-ha, are the people connected with the sacred principle of water: ITZ means dew, and Ha means water.
So, Chichen Itza is the great Cosmic University founded by Lord Itzamna with the ancient knowledge coming from Atlantis – Tulan Island. Chichen Itza is built between natural wells, cenotes. Stand between two of them that face North and South and you will see and feel the Sacred Energy from the Ancient Atlantis.
May you be Blessed with insights and inspiration on your Journey…

Follow-up: Too few know of the Maya Sacred connection with Atlantis… Maybe one day you might learn that the Mayan Calendar was brought to the Yucatan by Itzamna and his team.
Other Mayan Sacred sites that embody this Atlantean energetic is “AKÉ” and “Uxmal”. If you dream about this or intuitively fell the pull to investigate further, one might consider visiting these sites in silence… 🙏
In Lak’ ech,
Wikipedia: The present name seems to derive from Oxmal, meaning “three times built”. This seems to refer to the site’s antiquity and the times it had to rebuild. The etymology is disputed; another possibility is Uchmal which means “what is to come, the future.” By tradition, this was supposed to be an “invisible city,” built in one night by the magic of the dwarf king.
How is your Spiritual path today?
I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!
UPDATE ON A LIFE DREAM:
On 4 Sun/AHAU I was able to make the reservations for the trip, arriving on October 28 as I had hoped to be there to celebrate Ian Lungold’s Mayan birthday, 12 Sun/AHAU, on October 31st along with the observance of the Day of the Dead. It felt important to the information I would share in my book. I’m grateful to be part of such a flow of Love, more necessary that money, for the realization of my dream. You are already the blessing of just being here. (But you could help me spread the word.) much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit
SEPTEMBER 12th Update:
I received my new passport! My Leap of Faith to buy the ticket before receiving it paid off. 🙂 The reality is starting to set in. I’m excited to carry you with me. My 68th gregorian birthday is this week. I know what a healing it will be to see I’m just as capable as I have always been to charge off into the unknown for the experience. (Monkey must be talking.) I couldn’t be doing this without you.
The plan so far includes a visit to Chichen Itza, area cenotes, and the Black Jaguar ruins of Ek’ Balam. The Day of the Dead festivities will be going on, and October 31st, Ian Lungold’s Destiny Kin, 12 Sun/AHAU.
