Honoring the Solar Light of Ian Xel Lungold: A story from the Pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam


Ian Xel Lungold, Ascended 12 Sun/AHAU – Sharing the Breath of Light and Consciousness of UNDERSTANDING

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Thoughts of Ian are top-of-mind with Spirit to claim the Truth that he IS shining for us. Ian shared his last Dream in his final statement – to shine for us as One with the Legion of Light from the “otherside.” On my Pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam, I heard his Voice – like a repeating echo in my mind, “Time and Place, Time and Place, Time and Place.” I was surprised to recognize his voice, yet I’d heard the words before in every video – but, THIS was REAL, spoken to ME.

It was THE Sacred Ceremony of my Life – so far, and the FIRST “Impossible” Dream I Consciously Created all the way to an end. I always wanted to go to see the Mayan ruins and FEEL the Place set apart by Time. I cried for it. It was Impossible and there was NO way. I watched others go.

It was 1 Wind/IK (Minisa) that disseminated the Divine Idea to go. She suggested a place with the idea of going for the Day of the Dead. You can learn a LOT about Wind/IK if you pay attention to the POWER of Minisa’s words of SPIRIT. She holds the 1 Wind/IK Power to set thoughts into motion. I’m grateful. It was the first time I thought – wait, this isn’t “impossible.” Here’s a way. So, I entertained the idea.

My first thought was to look at the Tzolk’in to see “what time that is.” Halloween 2018 fell on Ian Xel Lungold’s Mayan birthday, 12 Sun/AHAU. Could that be? I had to go. I was meant to go. I looked again to read his last statement, and there it was – his last Dream, BEFORE he passed 13 years ago (in 2018). As soon as I had it figured out, the First Way was no longer a possibility. AND, I had just reached out to the Cosmos – GoFundMe – with the WILDEST DREAM of my Life. NOW WHAT? The “Light of the Way” was a “Jaguar’s Path.” I would JUST LOOK DOWN TO MY FEET, and claim I was in the PERFECT “Time and Place” – no matter how it looked all around. I would just do the next thing, and let everything else be invisible.

That was ONLY the beginning of the SIGNS of MIRACLES and DIVINE TIMING. In small and HUGE ways, there was synchronicity to the nth degree for a Mission of Love, to Manifest a Dream for someone else – to PROVE I was guided by the Light and a Breath of Wind.


LR – Me and Tammy (13 Jaguar/IX) – NOTICE the platform and how uneven the stones are. I made the 10 stairs up to this place, leaning on a Sun/AHAU.

I made the journey MANY TIMES in Spirit, planning where to go, what to do, and how I would carry out my Sacred Ceremony. The Haab date by Northern count was Time for a Sacred Ceremony – when the Hunters ask for Forgiveness for all the Lives that are taken and blood that is spilled.

PAY ATTENTION WHEN YOUR BLOOD IS SPILLED. The Elders said it was a Sacred Offering, beyond our Knowing to Balance a Sacred Exchange for WORK beyond all Human limitations. It matters and there is a DIVINE REASON we SEE and ACKNOWLEDGE when we SEE the  SUBSTANCE of our LIFE. It doesn’t matter how small. We notice and register the truth of the experience.

I Dreamed 2 sacred ceremonies, the 1st to the Spirit of the Place – Ek’ Balam, the Black “Star” Jaguar that offers an Initiation that is an “Illumination of Darkness.” Another synchronicity – the Black Jaguar was my totem from the beginning of my first  Sun/Moon Dance in the arbor on Minisa’s land. A black panther walked through the arbor from the SE to the NW in the middle of the night, circling the center pole on the way through. I was sleeping in the South. The keepers of the sacred fire were the witnesses, and the one sleeping in  the NW saw the panther leave the circle, crossing near her feet. I hadn’t known yet that the Jaguar was Ian’s totem – the reason he created the name MayanMaj-IX for his website. I was now making a Jaguar Journey from the  NW to the SE, and Minisa’s land was in the Center of the way. She agreed to stand with us there in Spirit to anchor our prayers… the “eye of Huracan.”

Nothing in the down below FELT the way I expected. It was the COOL season – HOT and Humid. It was a weight even at the hotel near the breezes off the ocean. I never could get a vision of whether I was going  to Chichen Itza.  It was clear that one destination might be all I could handle. I had DREAMS of climbing a pyramid, in the COOL summer of the Pacific Northwest. Plus, I was carrying more weight than ever before.

These other HUMAN BEINGS wanted to meet to share MY ceremony. Every travel advisory for traveling “international” all alone, said, “Don’t hook up with any strangers.” So, that’s the first thing I do. I couldn’t say NO if I wanted to. HOW could I? (Funny – it WAS meant to be, because NOW I COULD say “no,” thought I would CHOOSE to say “yes.”

Synchronicity between a 13 Jaguar/IX and a 7 Storm/CAUAC… was my “sign” it would be okay. (Both see the higher truth of Spirit.) Only they went for THEIR ceremonies. HAHA My SACRED CEREMONY on behalf of the whole on this Pilgrimage of Spirit… was intended to be ALL MINE.


I saw my own darkness illuminated as selfishness and fear of losing something I imagined would be True. It was a “big deal.” (Though, the REAL Truth was I KNEW before we ever arrived at the ruins it COULDN’T happen like I Dreamed for my Self. So, I had t he sense to perform MY OWN Sacred Ceremony in Spirit, the night before at the hotel.) AFTER, all the blood, sweat and tears turn into a Divine Work to have and to hold. 4-days marked a ceremony ended on 1 Wind/IK. My “Eagle/MEN” flew home on Minisa’s 1K birthday. A 1 Wind/IK started the whole thing, and was an end from the beginning.

When I was seated on the plane for the ride home I looked down to see the Red Dot on my left hand that looked like Tone 1. I hoped it would stay forever. I could bore you with SIGNS. There were so many I stopped counting.

Angel Figure in the Acropolis at Ek’ Balam – a Widom/CIB was on hand take photos with my phone from places too high for me to climb. Nothing in the photos ever suggests how HOT AND HUMID this place is – in the COOL Season. You can FEEL vibration, like you’re under water. When a bird chirps, it almost-echoes.

At the time it looked like human blood, sweat and tears. Hoping beyond hope that the Experience could REALLY change my life. I haven’t “written the book” because the story still isn’t over. Something BIG is still on the way.

We made the journey as One, standing in Spirit wherever we were. I didn’t have ANY trouble with YOU. LOLOL We Magnified the Power of our Prayers in a Holy Place given to see the Dark Truth that is the Light we Rise Above.

Born Sun/AHAU, Ian is a shape-shifting Jaguar. He volunteered to be a Guiding Spirit. I know he watched TV with me one night. He was a comfort next to me on the couch. Ask, if you need a Divine friend, and Feel what happens.

Today,  I give thanks to the 13 Jaguar/IX who claimed I should bring Ian’s altar picture frame home with me.  I wanted to keep  it, but felt like I should leave it there. It’s a blessing to have with me to remember where it once was in the Time and Place of Ek’ Balam.

I’m grateful to the 7 Storm/CAUAC who anchored a  Spiritual Path for my flight from the NW to the SE. She arrived  in the Yucatan before me, and held prayers for my safe arrival. She was the midwife that delivered me to the Light, and shared the renewal of Faith in myself, when I was afraid to lead sacred ceremony. I’m grateful to the 1 Storm/CAUAC (Michael Shore) that upholds Ian’s wisdom at MayanMajix.com. You can ASK him for the Answer in Spirit.

I’m grateful to a whole tribe of you who shared my dream and supported me with your prayers and donations. That was a miracle from the beginning… ANOTHER reason I had to go, on behalf of the whole. There were times I REALLY FELT a wind at my back.

To reach the end, there was one challenge after another to “overcome.” Though, now, it was only following a dream one step at a time. The prayers in that Time and  Place can never be forgotten and will multiply to abundance.

This is only a beginning. We’re given a BRAND NEW CHANCE without ALL THE KARMA.  We’ve been around the Tzolk’in 4 times since then, to create the Redemption for our Spirit. Prayers shared on behalf of the Whole MATTER when there are two or more. We were MANY, and we’ve been repeating the same prayers ever since, and the whole truth – since BEFORE THIS beginning.

I’m grateful that IAN shined his Light to REMEMBER. THERE ARE DIVINE TIMES marked for EVERY LIFE. They are only waiting for the Reason to Look. All our Divine Reasons are Wild Ideas from the Only One.

We only have to ask to SEE the Dream with OUR NAME ON IT. YOUR Divine Story is already written. There will be a Time and Place where you HAVE TO KNOW. You will ASK with ALL your Heart and the Truth will be Given.

in lak’ech, i am another you

Ian’s Celebration:

There were six gathered as 12 – as Humans and Divine Spirits. In synchronicity, the day signs that surrounded Ian’s experience of the Tzolk’in were all there. Wisdom/CIB is the Day Sign of Ian’s friend and academic of Mayan studies, John Callamen. Sun/AHAU was there, and Earth/CABAN. It wasn’t MY ceremony. I was just the Eagle/MEN intermediary that brought the SIX that were Meant to Be.

After a round of prayers for Ian we shared a communion of Apple Juice, in memory of Ian’s great grandfather, Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman). The Maya believe that to Remember the words, the prayers, the wisdom of one who came before is to offer them a LIVING place within your Consciousness of Being. Their wisdom can guide OUR wisdom in DIVINE ways beyond our imagination. We don’t have to SEE HOW, if we are WILLING TO IMAGINE there IS SOME BEAUTIFUL DIVINE way – and WE WILL KNOW IT IS THE TRUTH.

There IS a WHOLE story to tell one day. It WILL include the scene that was captured on video. I keep wondering if I’ll ever see the replay on youtube of a Spiritual Healing that was unexpectedly recorded when we drew an audience. 🙂 IT WAS A BIG SIGN.


1 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA)

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.

Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.

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!
