Our Aural History | Laura Grace Weldon

Greetings Kin, Laura Grace Weldon’s post shares wonderful insight on our relationship to Sound and Vibration from a scientific perspective, and personal experience. She reminded me of the Silence of Deer, and remembering the sounds we heard from the womb.

Thank you Laura Grace!

Eve of the Eagle/MEN Trecena: Ceremony of Initiation

Initiating Ourselves into the Eagle/MEN Trecena

Sacred Ritual allows us to create a physical representation of something in Spirit. Through ritual we are able to establish a relationship with Spirit that can be experienced in the physical world.

My first offering for the new Ceremonial Arts page is a Ceremony of Initiation. The Ritual offers a traditional way to initiate ourselves into a new beginning. This is ritual that can be used at the beginning of each trecena, or at the beginning of every new day.

Visit the Ceremonial Arts Page
Details of the Ceremony are offered on the Ceremonial Arts page, linked on the Main Menu under Medicine Path.

Observing the 4 Days Preceding the Mayan New Year


A Message from Minisa Crumbo Halsey on preparations and Sacred Ceremony in observance of the New Year on 8 Monkey/CHUEN (July 4, 2016)

5 Lamat

I visited the Longhouse this morning after last night’s FIVE PERSON grief release and celebration of life ceremony that life might go on ‘in a good way’.

The tea lights were STILL glimmering.
I removed the directional lava and rose quartz stone beings from the fire ring to the side.
Any charred wood ends were removed.
Small, long-handled, old broom swept ash from the center, up and over the sides of previous ash ring rakings.

A WHITE center and bottom of the fire pit revealed itself..the other side revealed it’s face and UNIFIED WITH THE OUR CONSCIOUS WORLD… THE FIRE RING CENTER.

The directional stone beings and rose quartz beings were returned to the fire ring perimeter.
The small, old broom then swept out, completely, ALL, of our previous track…in the entire Longhouse..to the door… creating a RE-NEWED field whereby the new tracks and paths will be laid down on a clear, purified and unified ground…in a sacred manner we walk.

We will walk there four days in ceremony..this 5 Lamat, being the first of the four days of the Mayan New Year observances.

Fires are being built and prayers offered wherever DayKeepers and sweetgrass swingers live, sing, breath and dance.

Dream and make personal and collective ceremonies of Unified Intent according to dream and vision drawn from your life and offer it to Life.

In the Spirit of Art, Beauty and Love…forever

Ceremony Update: Eve of the Monkey/CHUEN Trecena

The Birds and Bees of Summer

A Message for the Trecena of Monkey/CHUEN
by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

Let us place some time and attention apart in order to move into and more deeply with the divine and eternal concepts of balance and harmony. Love and the red gifts of the heart are flowering, even fruiting and seeding with those of us who reside in the northern hemi-shell of our beautiful Mother Earth which is in turn, shone down upon and energized by our beloved Father Sky Sun.

8 Road/EB – Spiritual Quickening


8 Road/EB

8 Road/EB

Greetings Kin,

Galactic Tone 8 brings an intention of justice through balance and harmony. Road/EB calls our attention to the road of our Destiny.

Though we may live in a world of inequity, we are shown that a Higher Power is capable to balance the scales.

8 Road/EB is a Holy Day celebrated by the Quiche Maya as the Day of Destiny, Sac be/the White Way, referring to the Milky Way. Tone 8 is described as the number of pure Spirit. This is a turning point of momentum in our Spiritual Quickening.

This is a peak day in the cycle and the 7th of 10 Green Kins in progression that opens a portal to Spirit and the potential for a shift in perception.

6 Dog/OC – Spiritual Quickening


6 Dog/OC

6 Dog/OC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 helps us to fall into step with the movement of this trecena as we enter the peak energies of this 13-day cycle. Like stepping onto an escalator, this is the point where we adjust to a new flow. Dog/OC reminds us to take life as it comes. We’re guided to keep our focus on the next opportunity, instead of looking back.

We have been moving through an intense cycle of personal transformation. Today could bring some sense of personal relief as Tone 6 eases us into the flow of the process of our own changes. Dog brings the comfort of companionship, support, and unconditional love through an open portal of Spirit.

This is the 5th of 10 Green Kins in progression that introduces a portal to Spirit and a potential shift in perception.

1 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Spiritual Quickening


1 Serpent/CHICCHAN

1 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

The trecena of Serpent/CHICCHAN brings the energy to ignite a new evolution of our Spirit and an awakening of our Spiritual Senses. The sixth sense the Maya call “lightning in the blood” refers to a “knowing” or intuition in Spirit that makes a connection to feelings in our physical body.

Each of us carries the capacity for these spiritual “feelings.” This knowing might have presented itself when we sensed who was calling before we picked up the phone, or when we walk into a room and “feel” a sense of energy from something that has just happened there. These are the senses we are capable to expand through the energy of Serpent/CHICCHAN. This trecena will be made even more potent by a ‘Galactic Activation Portal,” a thinning of the veil, that remains open for 10 consecutive days. The trecena of Serpent/CHICCHAN has the power to bring forward the conscious awareness of the inherent power of Spirit through the 5th element of ether.

Chicchan initiates us into a trecena that calls us to reach for our highest Spiritual Aspirations. This is not an intention within our power to manifest by ourselves, but a Spiritual Gift we can only be open to receive.
