The Pleiades and the Mayans The Galactic Butterfly can be a system put in place through pictographs representing all biological life forms within Nature/Cosmos. The butterfly was created to study life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, and all the ancestors that have ever existed in this local universe (orbiting/spiralling within a certain distance of the Sun) stars and planets. The galactic butterfly can represent how the Alpha and Omega stages can work within our world and co-exist and take an active part with the consciousness of our galaxy. The Mayans documented their understanding of the sky and the centre of the universe. They even had a glyph or symbol representing it, which they may now call Hunab Ku, also known as the Galactic Butterfly. Their calendar system and language possibly reflected the existence and location of Hunab Ku in the centre of the Milky Way galaxy, well, at least some of the Mayans I lived and studied within a remote area of Chichin Itza. I will share more of this experience later on in the readings. Hunab Ku or the Galactic Butterfly can be the Mother continually giving birth to new stars (hence the Alpha and Omega or Galactic Butterfly correlation) and possibly gave birth to our Sun and Earth and the other planets and Universal elements found in our solar system. A similar story we have heard in different ancient cultures of creation and the Pleiades.
The ancient Mayans developed many calendars used independently or together to keep track of Earthly and astronomical cycles. The timelines could have tracked the changing seasons, the Moon phases, the orbits of the planets, and the movements of celestial activities or influxes of energies, possibly through the Pleiades' correspondence Orion constellations.In this situation, one of the calendars named the Tzolk’in can consist of smaller 13, 8, and 20-day cycles; three numbers that can be important in Mayan astronomy and nature (agriculture), mythology and religious practices. As I began to study with the Mayan Shamans and their culture, I began to find out that Life can be strictly sacred, the holiest thing there can be. Morning, afternoon, and evening were set aside to pray, give thoughts of gratitude, and hold ceremonies. As mentioned earlier, I will share some of the extraordinary and mind-shattering experiences I was graciously led into by the Mayan Shaman and his initiations into their culture later on in the reading.These calendars can be situational when combined and referenced at the moment. Let’s look at combining the three calendars (13, 8 and 20-days) pictured below.
The Tzolk’ in maybe one of many sacred calendars of the Maya. In this situation, the system was created to correlate and categorize the Pleiades and Orion constellations' cycles.It can be possible the Pleiades uses a 26,000-year cycle as our sun orbits Alcyone. Alcyone being the Pleiades' central star, this can give some insight to the Maya's purpose of the 260-day calendar and cycles of the moon and other planets such as Venus, Mars, Jupiter, etc. The Mayans may have used the Pleiades and other systems such as Orion and local planets for their agricultural systems for the year. When I was living with the Mayan Shaman/elder in Chichin Itza, we would begin our day in the sacred east honouring the Pleiadian stars' pattern recognized in earth's night sky before the light of the sun's dawn could hide the view of the stars. As the sun gazed upon us (the Shaman and I), we would send rainbow light to the entire world: north, south, east and west.Long ago, at the beginning of the ancient Maya traditions, they could have had an understanding of the idea that they came from the Pleiades (or the home of their ancestors) known as “Tzab-ek" (Rattlesnake/dragon tail). The Shaman and I would pay attention to this lineage and our relationship with the Pleiades. This information about the Pleiades would be passed on from generation to generation. Some of the stories shared were the entire Universe was birthed from the Pleiades by crystal beings with elongated heads/dragon faced that lived in Alcyone. The Mayan elders spoke about the resonance of this birth of stars being inside spirals of stardust surrounding the constellation, continually producing new heavenly bodies and sending the dust throughout the Universe and to our planet during our physical birth from the woman's womb.
The Pleiades, Orion, and the Mayans Job 38:31 “Can you fasten the chains of the Pleiades or loosen the belt of Orion?” Revelation 3:1 “[The Letter to Sardis] “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: “The One who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars says: I know your works; you have a reputation for being alive, but you are dead. Job 9:9 He makes [the stars]: the Bear, Orion, the Pleiades, and the constellations of the southern sky. Amos 5:8 The One who made the Pleiades and Orion, who turns darkness into dawn and darkens day into night, who summons the waters of the sea and pours them out over the face of the earth — Yahweh is His name.
The system of stars mentioned above in the biblical traditions can be stated and used with Mayan traditions as well: Pleiades and Orion can be used together to bring another alignment and connection to this planet, Earth.
Let’s begin by calibrating the Tzolk’in Calendar system combining all the rings, and seeing what we can come up with (please feel free to reference the cover page to get a visual). The centre can be the key or seat of life, the womb of creation (the body's reproduction centre), the Sun and Moon, the Butterfly, or the Alpha and Omega cycles. Let’s enter from the first outer ring/belt as we begin to orbit into the direct centre. The first ring can be Alnitak, one of the three kings or stars on Orion’s Belt. The belt can have 20 spaces. We can say those spaces represent the entry to the Seven Sisters, then the eight planets within our solar system (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) last 5 dwarf planets. As we move into the second ring/belt that can be named Alnilam, we move to the second star or King on Orion’s Belt with 13 spaces as we move back through 5 dwarf planets (Ceres, Pluto, Eris, Makemake and Haumea) then back through the eight local planets. The third belt before we move into the direct centre can be named Mintaka. The third star or King that holds the same eight planets in orbit (now much closer to our Sun) as we can now view nature as a whole, working together, meeting in the centre or fulcrum point to cycle and orbit around the Sun or the Galactic Butterfly. The Alpha stage was beginning with the gods or planets. With this stated, let’s look at how to link our physical and infuse it with light from our celestial roots within the Omega stage. We can begin with the nine glands of the Endocrine system, then into the 33 vertebrae (9 fused vertebrae in the sacrum and the coccyx), also known by the Maya as “Rattlesnake's tail” (Pleiades) or the spirit antenna. In this situation, we can start at the direct centre, the symbol of the Moon or the reproductive system. We then move to the first ring and the eight sections on the Tzolk’in belt of the endocrine system. Then we move to the next ring or 13 parts on the second belt building the Cervical and Thoracic sections of the vertebrae. We will Finish with the 20 spaces on the third belt or ring with the last thoracic vertebrae. Then moving into the Lumbar vertebrae and the 9 Pleiadian stars (Seven Sisters: Sterope, Merope, Electra, Maia, Taygeta, Celaeno, and Alcyone plus Pleione and Atlas as Mother and Father). These stars represent the nine fused vertebrae in the sacrum and the coccyx and finish the 33 vertebrae, back out through the Pleiades to begin again, sending the information back to the star's planets.The endocrine system's nine glands can be the adrenal glands, hypothalamus, pancreas, parathyroid glands, pineal body, pituitary gland, thymus gland, and thyroid gland. The wheel or calendar's direct centre can be the reproductive centre of the cycles (ovaries or testicles)—a working Mayan system of the creation of the human body and cosmos body.
RecapThe primary antenna in our body can be the spine, the 33 vertebrae. The backbone can be very sacred and possibly used as a storage house of information that can travel with us through all incarnations. The spine can be known as the Christed Assembly, looks like an inverted pyramid, and has also been called the Seat of Immortality, or the spirit antenna. The endocrine system can be a collection of 9 glands that produce hormones and regulate the body's growth, metabolism, and sexual development. The hormones can be released into the bloodstream and directed to tissues and organs throughout the body. The pituitary gland can be the master gland of the endocrine system, and (when working in synergy with the spine and nature), the Chakra system can flow in harmony with insight and intuition.The Chakras theory can revolve around two major physical body systems - the endocrine system and the nervous system.
Stephens Experiential Learning with the MayansIn 2007 I received a tremendous shift in energies and awareness; I had some assistance with this shift back home in Toronto, but I was missing something, I did not know what or by whom the missing piece would come from at the time, but I knew I had to leave Toronto to find it. This would be my first time travelling outside the country by myself (and would be the start of my world travels grounding energies).At the time, I had never heard of the Mayans or the Yucatan area of Mexico, and it’s funny I was not even aware there are pyramids there or that such a thing as vortex spaces or energy vortices exist. My journey started in a bookstore, the winter of 2007, with a book on the eight wonders of the world. I was flipping through the pages and came across a picture of Chichin Itza, and a rush of energy came through my whole body. I experienced standing in the exact scene where the photo was taken in Mexico while standing in the bookstore in the city of Toronto simultaneously (basically two areas at once!). These incidents began getting stronger and were happening more frequently. The easiest way to describe what happened was what seemed to be a de-materialization of my body, then travelling into unfamiliar (and very familiar explored realms) and then a materialization back to my body. It was almost like the cells or particles in my body were becoming scattered- it would happen so fast that no one took notice. I thought quietly to myself, Was this experience of energy through my body triggered by the trauma I experienced in the car accident. Maybe it had something to do with this angel or alien, Uriel (who, at the time, was getting cozy in my energy field and taught me how to interact with my body). Either way, I was trippin’ and going for it.I took this book and my experiences in the store as a sign of help. I needed grounding. Right away, I applied for a passport and asked fiends for some money (at the time, I had nothing), and sure enough, in late December, I was off to Mexico and bringing my alien Uriel with me.
I arrived in Cancun and took a bus to the Yucatan to visit the pyramids, still unsure what I was doing there. The tombs were more breathtaking than I expected. I ran, walked, meditated and engaged with the energies through the whole grounds day and night (yes, I hid inside as they closed the site every day just before the sun came down, I thought, ‘no way am I going to miss that!’). I found pockets of energy, which I guess were vortices/portals in certain areas and took full advantage of the sacred powers that came out to greet me as the sunset and the night began to light up with stars. I climbed to the top of the pyramid and gazed at the starry, illuminated sky and later walked out of the grounds unnoticed. My hotel was a twenty-minute walk back, and I got home safe and sound. I awoke the next morning and got on a bus to Tulum (my seat ticket was number two, so I could sit at the front of the bus and got a great view of the countryside. At one stop, an English-speaking female got on the bus; she was not Mexican, which was somewhat of a relief for me, considering I had no one to talk to or give me any direction in this country (as I was winging it!). We struck up a conversation, and she asked me what I was doing in Mexico; being the transparent person I am, I told her I had no clue and that I was just guided to come down and work with a pyramid and the grounds of Chichin Itza. Surprisingly, she then began to tell me she was visiting a shaman who performed a ceremony or ritual. She told me it was quite painful and may seem a little scary at times, but she felt I could use the assistance.
This was the first time I had heard of a shaman or the terms ceremony and ritual spoken out in the open so comfortably. When I heard those words spoken, I thought I would be going straight to hell (an example of my religious upbringing/programming coming to the surface). I had done many things that seemed crazy and had built up a trusting relationship with this energy or being Uriel, so it looked pretty cool and felt almost normal as it was guiding me all through Mexico. Whether I was making it up or not in my head, it was serving me well, and the things I saw this energy do was so far out there that I had to keep going. I told the woman that I would go with her to the shaman. When I told her I had no money, just enough to get back to my hotel (well, actually, my tent), she said she would take care of it. So, we got off the bus, and she casually explained that she had just taken the bus to get me. There was a cab waiting for her, and away we went. We arrived at a location off the highway and down a small stretch of road. The place was amazing! It was full of life; animals, plants, fruit trees, gardens, a vast cenoté (a deep natural sinkhole filled with water) and a small home. The shaman was not home when I arrived, so I waited in a hammock. That night when the shaman showed up, he introduced himself (in English, thankfully!), and we spoke very briefly. He just mentioned that he noticed my light (Aura) from the road as the car drove up to his home, and he has been having visions of a man from Canada arriving for the next shift, then put me in a tent and told me we would start in the morning. The cool thing was, I remembered the whole situation that was unfolding. I have had dreams and visions of this man, home, furniture in the house, even the pictures on the wall. I also had images three months before all the people who lived there! It all just flooded into my memory so fast I didn’t even have time to say anything. I just went to bed, and these occurrences or phenomena began to intensify. From that day, those intense sensations (that the event, people, places or things I was currently experiencing had already happened before arriving at the destination) seemed mystical or extraordinary, now it’s just normal, and I don’t pay much (or any) attention to this phenomenon. It’s like Déjà vu but more intense and detailed, like a crack in time or a tear within a thin sheet or veil.
I awoke in the morning and found the shaman meditating in the sun (just as the sun was rising), and he invited me to join him. He then asked for my help: he explained how the sun gives so much life and how we can use the sun's life force to feed us and send that life force back out to others. As the sun gazed upon us (the shaman and I), we would send rainbow light to the entire world: north, south, east and west. After we finished “playing with the sun,” we began to eat small amounts and very slowly, little speaking, chewing very slowly, and letting the food sit for a bit before we swallowed. It was the quietest and longest meal I have ever had, and I began to notice the sustenance had a life force of its own; it even had energy around it (a fluid-like substance), and this energy would start to interact with my energy. I noticed everyone else’s energy around their body rise as they consumed the food. I had seen these energies before around trees and humans, but this was the first time I had seen the intake of food increase the power around the person consuming it. After our morning meal, we chatted about specific events that were taking place around the world, but most importantly, what was happening in our direct area (where we were living). I could not understand Spanish but would follow the energies around their body. Some Auras would get big or expand around the physical body, and when I noticed this, that person would speak, and then I would notice another person’s energy rise or develop and feel the expansion. He would talk- it was almost like follow the leader. When the energies would focus or expand around one person, the others would be silent and listen, then they would get topped up, and the next person’s energy would expand, and they would talk. It was almost like how a generator works with one source powering other sources and branching off. I just sat there quietly listening, smelling, seeing and sometimes tasting the Prana as everyone shared.
After our morning ritual, the shaman took me into the gardens and showed me the plants, flowers, trees and animals I could not find anywhere else as he explained to me that nature trusted him and his home space. Because of this respect and holy bond, he explained that nature gave the land these extraordinary creatures. He told me to rest for the day in preparation for the ceremony he would be performing on me in the evening.Just as the sun was coming down, we began the ceremony. He brought me into a room with a massage table along with four others with him. I was a little nervous since I didn’t know what the process was or how this was going to work out. (I don’t want to share all the details because I want to respect the tradition, but I found out why there were four others present very quickly- to hold me down as the shaman began to work with his tool.) The pain was out of this world, and I was freaking out! He just kept telling me that there was no pain and that it was all in my head. Forty-five minutes went by, and there was still pain, but I began to notice a change in my perception. Eventually, the ceremony ended, and I was completely exhausted and left in the room to rest. I awoke several hours later, and when I opened my eyes, everything seemed different. All my senses were excited, even my metaphysical reasons, and as I stepped off the table and stood just for a moment, my feet were not touching the ground! I couldn’t tell if I was dreaming or awake. I looked at my body and could actually see energy vortices (Chakras) pure white and vibrating- I could even touch each centre with my hands and feel the vibration. I shook myself out of this state and made my way outside to see the shaman standing there. He looked at me and told me it was time for me to leave (as I had to get back and catch my plane the next day). They gave me some money and put me in a cab and off I went. The driver let me off in an unfamiliar area of Mexico. It was the middle of the night; I walked the rest of the way back to the hotel on my own. I was a little worried, to say the least, as it was about two o’clock in the morning and I was in a strange country, and I didn’t speak any Spanish. I was also wearing a simple white outfit and was still tripping out of my ceremony. As I walked through this little town, everyone stared (they must have thought, ‘who’s this crazy white guy with the white outfit walking down the middle of the street at 2 am?!’), but everywhere I walked, all I saw was white light. It was almost blinding in the night. I finally made it back home and fell asleep. I awoke the next morning and knew this was the beginning of something and that I would be back for more studies as I began to make my way back to Canada.
The journey begins with a more in-depth study; I assumed the study would be learning the sacred ceremony he performed on me. Actually, that was why I went down, but I would find out very fast that was not the case. I had much more work to do and many other ceremonies to study and use before he would allow me to perform. He put me out in a tent and told me to rest for a day or so and adjust to the climate and my surroundings. A younger man appeared in my tent; he spoke English (Mexican) and explained to me he came to work on the biosphere, and he and the shaman needed my help. I had not heard that term before. I asked what that was, he explained to me briefly it was an ecosystem self-sustaining (Energetically) an extraordinary zone or portal on earth. Okay, I said and went off with him; we met with the shaman, and the shaman explained to me he was not going by the name or belief system anymore that he was now free and wanted me to see him as a friendly teacher. So my friend/teacher gave me a pickaxe and told me my study now begins, pointed to a location, and asked me to break up the ground. I walked over, raised the pickaxe, and just before I struck the field, he stopped me. What are you doing? He asked. I looked over and said I was going to break the ground up what you asked. He said did you ask permission, he looked at me very stern and said, the earth, your teacher, would be the earth. You are here to study the universe and live in a harmonious nature with it. He showed me how to pray or ask permission before I struck the earth and practiced gratitude with each swing. From there, I had to take the dirt I broke up full it in a wheel barrel and walked it over to a section of gardens again speaking with the earth giving thanks to the soil. There were a couple of other people working within the gardens planting various seeds and plants. They began to show me how to plant to honour each seed, meditate in front of the plants using life force energies, and send love and gratitude to feed them. I found out quickly that it was just not just water and soil that the plants were thriving in. It was also the environment we provided for them as well. Everyone was hushed in the garden to see and hear the animals in the area, such as rattlesnakes and scorpions. The animals would also let us know if we were disturbing the location. With caution, every rock unearthed, the ground broken, the trees, plants and seeds planted, we asked for permission first and thanked gratitude and acceptance.
Weeks of this went on; some days, I was tired and felt ill, my friend and teacher would reassure me that this grounding was necessary for me, and the connection of my body with the earth was essential for the planet. The teacher explained to me that this is why I have been gifted these unexplained mysteries. Or the ability to see the unseen and to intend the celestial energies. He told me I act like a beacon; he put it simply that I was hardwired a specific way so my vibration could help the earth and others around me. He would laugh and say, a great responsibility we have had such an Aura in a great size. So many more rituals I would experience. Some more natural than the others, the teacher taught me how to communicate with the animals and plants, he taught me how to ground and give the earth my sexual energies. One of the more difficult rituals was every time I would get an erection, and he would have me sit naked on the ground with my genitals anus firmly planted, sending the energies to mother earth. Fasting for days and weeks without water and food to achieve or feed on the Prana of earth, sun, planets and stars at night. The teacher-guided meditations through specific chakras, breath work and postures, lots of stories about Mayan traditions and specific healing tools they would use in their cultures, he shared ancient techniques and prophesied’s before nightfall and sunrise. Months went by, and it was time for me to go home; I wanted to stay and live there, but he told me I had too much work to do back home with family and friends. I explained I bought a one-way ticket, but he insisted I had to go; vibrating with him in this environment was one thing, but the test was doing this with family and friends close to me who I left behind. I was upset at first but felt the same as he did. He gave me one last task to do before I went home. I was ordered to a specific pyramid in the Yucatan Mexico, he told me to meditate at the top of this pyramid at 12 pm, and if I were ready, the crystal kingdom would open. I thanked him, and off I went catching a bus to the pyramid site before I would fly back home. I ventured to the location greeted by a Mexican man below the pyramid with a comment; he just looked at me and said Canada and held his hand out, I gave him some money and began to walk up the steep stairs, and he then walked away into the forest nearby. When I got to the top, I looked at my watch. It was close to noon; I just sat with my eyes closed, meditating and wondering if I would see anything. Sure enough, it happened a beautiful crystal city, my home in the Shekina temples, a town named Isaiah, a crystal being told me in the vision. Many more crystal entities came a total of 12, and their energies were loud with tones or frequencies, almost like rubbing crystals together. This experience was too intense, and they looked so scary, but at the same time, very familiar, my whole body was vibrating from the head and into the earth. Finally, I snapped out of this trance-like state opened my eyes to the hot sun as I prepared to leave the site and Mexico. I would now begin my world travels intending energies from sacred sites, specifically temples and structures built for the sun Gods and the pleadies
The Magician’s Attunement Alpha and Omega Balance and Restructure The Magician can be a bridge between the world of the gods (and their astrological influences). And the earth. In this image, the left hand (in this situation, the human side of Magic or Metaphysics) holds a staff raised with crystal towards the sky, and her right hand (representing the Spiritual side) points to the wooden table (the shape of a cube and the symbol of earth). She or he can take the power of the Universe and the will of the gods and intend it through the body into the physical plane. Above the Magician’s head can be the symbol of eternity (Body), the endless cycles of Alpha and Omega stages and Duality. He or she stands straight and confident within these cycles, holding in that centre point and the in-between of this excellent service. Around the waist and neck is a possible key, a heart symbol where a new or different type of happiness can be found for someone standing in the centre point of eternity. On the table, placed all four suits of the Tarot, each of which can represent the beginning or foundation of a magician’s/alchemist’s initiation into the elements' sacredness. These elements can symbolize the designer of the living God (her body) of earth, air, fire and water. The understanding that the scared elements possibly created a dense experience through the body and environment for the spirit can symbolize the appropriate use of the mind, heart, body and soul, intending the art of manifestation.The Magician’s robe can be white on the outside, symbolizing the purity of life/Nature, and black on the inside, signifying what can be shown from behind the veil when used with pure intent (the black representing Universal or planetary experience of knowledge used on earth hidden behind the curtains of light). As the robe opens, the planetary symbols or the gods start to appear, take notice of the feet standing in the purity of white on the earth, the vines covered with Petunias begin to pull the body down or keep physicality rooted, smiles in confidence within Duality on Earth. His/her image can manifest into the face of a butterfly, mirroring the endless cycle of transformation. The wings begin to appear on the back. Two butterflies fly around her, another symbol within Duality, life and death. He or she understands the body (the infinity symbol above her head) or living God. The Elements can be eternal, and the only death can be knowledge, the actions, the “I,” and the language he or she uses to communicate. The Attunement can be very simple, repeat the infinity symbol with two passes above the head.
