Wow. What a weekend. My husband and I showed up a little late for the ‘2012: Gateway to Your Future’ Conference held at the University of Toronto starting on Saturday morning, but being on ‘Divine Time’ it turned out we were right ‘on’ time. Nikki Hayes, one of the power-house organizers of this incredible event, warmly welcomed us & personally escorted us to reserved seating in the second row, center aisle, right at the front. OK, something’s up, I remember thinking… Just a few days earlier I had not even known about this conference – then free tickets seemingly manifested ‘out of nowhere’ …
When Guatemalan Quiche Mayan Elder Bartolo Alvarez & his entourage then took the stage, I knew serious magic was afoot…
Directly across from him and the multi-directional altar, once the ceremony started I pretty much lost awareness of everything other than the sacred energies being honored and called in. And I knew, at the deepest core of my Being, that it was a humongous miracle that all present had made it ‘on time.’ So many insurmountable obstacles had been put in our collective path – but had been overcome to bring us all together. Tears running down my face, I felt profound gratitude. As Patti Cota-Robles always says ‘a major facet of the Divine Plan was about to unfold’:
A Mayan devotee holding space in each corner of the four directions, when it came time to burn the copal incense Mr. Alvarez had brought all the way from a special ceremony in Tikal, building security at Convocation Hall would not allow it. ( When I was at student at U. of T. we had ushers – not security guards! ) Invited to burn the sacred incense outdoors outside Convocation Hall, Mr. Alvarez declined the offer, saying that it could only be burned at the Altar – which was on the stage.
Afterwards, I spoke with Bartolo, and he said he had something to give me. Imagine my surprise ( and especially that of his young male apprentice ) when he gave me the entire medicine pouch he had brought for the ‘Convocation Hall 2012 – Gateway to Your Future’ opening prayer ritual, replete with tinfoil wrapped charcoal briquets, sage from other prayer ceremonies – and a rather large ball of absolutely fragrant super charged super blessed Mayan copal incense he had brought all the way from the ceremonial center in Tikal. Deeply moved, I accepted Bartolo’s gift. I knew it was not ‘for me’ – but ‘for Gaia & for us all’…
“When Ritual Is Real, It Finds You” – ‘ASCENSION: The FireFlower‘
Clearly, there was a reason I had felt compelled to create a sacred Medicine Wheel the previous evening – with every super charged, super blessed ceremonial rock in my safe-keeping.
Joined by a dear friend and Kogi Shamaness later that same day, we offered prayers and the copal, fully completing the activation of this ‘Ascension Gateway’ Medicine Wheel. Designed to further anchor the Highest High Ascension Energies available to us at this time, this Blessing is freely available to All.
So much happened this weekend, I could write a book about it, for it was not also without great loss – after caring for her all night my very elderly, very very precious ‘Little Boo’ cat companion of 15 years fell asleep next to my heart and then transitioned peacefully to the other side – and the following night, right after the Wisdom Forum closing ceremony, we had to make an emergency two and a half hour drive and overnight vigil to care for my mum – my absolute greatest teacher in this Life. Please pray for her, she also is preparing to transition to the Higher Realms. Double shock. After all, it is the ‘end of the world.’ But there is so much Holy Love from the Invisible Realms, from the Ancestors, Guides and Angels, so much Divine Grace that somehow I am being supported through unthinkable loss that would be enough to sink me under normal circumstances. But these are days are not ‘normal’ – we are in extraordinary times.
“For the Maya, Life and Death are One,” said John Major Jenkins.
So many incredible people. So many deep, true connections. So much ‘deep truth’, ‘primordial wisdom…’ I got to meet John Major Jenkins; Colin Andrews; and “The future creates the present” Master Ti Caine’; each one deserving of their own Chapter.
Within the crucible of our collective global heart, we even joined in The Heart Math Global Oneness Meditation with Howard Martin and Gregg Braden. And as Gregg Braden said “The Light was definitely in Toronto this weekend.” And I haven’t even gotten to the Closing Ceremony yet; after my Little Boo’s passing (if it had been Egypt, she would have had a State Funeral) I almost didn’t make it:
Returned to the Altar on the stage at Convocation Hall, Guatemalan Quiche Mayan Elder Bartolo Alvarez and the Aztec Ceremonial Drummer and Dancers ROCKED the House – raising the energy to a level never before seen at that location – at least not in this particular World Age – raising high a clay dish from which smoked the incense of holy copal from Tikal!!!
At that point everyone who wished was invited to join in a massive Maya – Aztec hand to hand ‘snake dance’ that did the conga all the way around and through the building. Needless to say, the security gourds – I mean guards – were appalled – but we invited them to join in too. At the end of the sacred dance, I in turn gave Guatemalan Quiche Mayan Elder Bartolo Alvarez a sacred medicine pouch – we hugged with JOY – and the ‘circle’ was closed. The vibe was SO high…
And as if to confirm that at all is well, all is shifting in the right direction, the following evening returning from mum’s, totally exhausted on the evening of Monday October 24, 2011 on a stretch of road with a view over Toronto not unlike that of Mulholland Drive over Los Angeles – the biggest glittering disc-shaped star-ship we’ve ever had the privilege of seeing ( that we know of! ) – up close & personal hovering Hollywoodesque on a slight angle just beyond the edge of the mountain – before receding slowly towards the Toronto-Mississauga Pyramid Complex (more about that another day!) – and beyond to the Sacred Holy Waters of Niagara Falls.
I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
Let us Join in heart-felt prayer with the Mayan Elders and the 13 Crystal Skulls in N.Y. City tomorrow in preparation of the Historic End of the Mayan Calendar – and beyond thru Ceremony with Drunvalo in the Four Corners and onward to the 11:11:11 in Los Angeles. DREAM BIG — The Future REALLY DOES Create the Present!!!
