My Mayan Connection

Early in my Spiritual journey I didn’t care much about past lives or reincarnation.
I knew these concepts were fundamental Spiritual principles,
but apart from idle curiosity I really had no interest in them.

I simply didn’t see any reason to give it much attention.

That was soon to change.

Shortly, I started to have a series of strange dreams. Several were about ancient Egypt. In another I saw a Celtic burial mound – and I knew had been buried there. Other dreams followed – a Chinese soldier  – native American Indians – Ancient Rome and Greece. And more. Initially I merely dismissed them as unusual dream symbols. But eventually I started to notice that in many instances these dreams related to things that I was going through in my present life. They answered a lot of my questions. Questions about relationships, health, interests, talents and knowledge – many aspects of my life.
I was forced to pay attention because the information was often useful and important. 

Finally I read that we reincarnate as both man or woman. I challenged this because
in all my past life recollections I had been a man. A male.

But somebody was listening.

was soon shown a past life where I was a Mayan woman. This was shocking enough in itself, but I was also pregnant! Incredible! Try that one on. As I stood there in my humble hut, I saw temples in the background. Chichen Itza? (Would I be surprised?) Then I looked into the fire and saw the face of a Spiritual Master. Quetzalcoatl!?? 

I really don’t know? But that would make some sense to me. 

We’ve been around a hell of a long time.

Quetzalcoatl- The Plumed Serpent – Modern Images

There a literally dozens of depictions of Quetzalcoatl.
the combination of the Quetzal bird and the rattlesnake.

I really wonder if Quetzalcoatl would agree 
 with the depictions of him as an dragon like monster.

If Quetzalcoatl was/is was a Spiritual Master
he would have preached, taught and practiced Love. Not Power.

But the artwork is fantastic.

Obviously still a lot of fervour for Quetzalcoatl

Quetzalcoatl- The Plumed Serpent Awakens

The recovery of the ancient Mayan cities – their Temple Pyramids – which are the Mayan churches –
has been a revelation to the modern Maya and a revival of Mayan religious traditions. 

Video borrowed from YouTube

“According to legend, twice a year when the day and night are in balance, this pyramid dedicated to Kukulcan (or Quetzalcoatl), the feathered serpent god, is visited by its namesake. On the equinox, Kukulcan returns to earth to commune with his worshipers, provide blessing for a full harvest and good health before entering the sacred water, bathing in it, and continuing through it on his way to the underworld.”

Modern depictions of Quetzalcoatl/Kukulkan.
Said to be The God of knowledge and learning – among other things.
Creator of the Calendar and books.

Kukulkan / Quetzalcoatl obviously still has a powerful appeal.

From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kukulkan:
“The cult of Kukulkan/Quetzalcoatl was the first Mesoamerican religion to transcend the old Classic Period linguistic and ethnic divisions. This cult facilitated communication and peaceful trade among peoples of many different social and ethnic backgrounds. Although the cult was originally centred on the ancient city of Chichén Itzá in the modern Mexican state of Yucatán, it spread as far as the Guatemalan highlands.”

Akeviz
“A spiritual city in the highlands of Guatemala; one of the smaller communities of Spiritual Travelers who are still connected with the ancient civilizations of the Mayans;
promotes the ancient mysteries of the once powerful Mayans and Aztecs.”

– A Cosmic Sea of Words / Harold Klemp

“… in other traditions Quetzalcoatl was said to oppose human sacrifice. Mesoamerican priests and kings would sometimes take the name of a deity they were associated with,
so Quetzalcoatl and Kukulcan are also the names of historical persons.
He was known as the inventor of books and the calendar, the giver of corn to mankind, and sometimes as a symbol of death and resurrection.
Quetzalcoatl was also the patron of the priests and the title of the Aztec high priest.”

Another pretty good video of this amazing whirlwind
that occurred at the Pyramid of Kukulkan this Spring.

The Temple Pyramid of Kukulkan … The Plumed Serpent … Part 1

Here’s a phenomenon that occurred this year at Chichen Itza right in front of
the Pyramid of Kukulkan
the day after the Spring Equinox
which is a day that locals
celebrate as the return of Kukulkan.

Call me crazy, but that looks just like a flying snake.

From Wikipedia: 

“Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec god of wind, air, and learning, wears around his neck the “wind breastplate” ehecailacocozcatl, “the spirally voluted wind jewel” made of a conch shell. This talisman was a conch shell cut at the cross-section and was likely worn as a necklace by religious rulers, as they have been discovered in burials in archaeological sites throughout Mesoamerica, and potentially symbolized patterns witnessed in hurricanes, dust devils, seashells, and whirlpools, which were elemental forces that had significance in Aztec mythology. In codex drawings, both Quetzalcoatl and Xolotl were pictured wearing an ehecailacocozcatl around the neck.[5] There has additionally been at least one major cache of offerings with knives and idols adorned with the symbols of more than one god, some of which were adorned with wind jewels.”[6]
