Mayan Wisdom from Winter Solstice 2012 to 2016


“Both the Hopis and Mayans recognize that we are approaching the end of a World Age… In both cases, however, the Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear.”— Joseph Robert Jochmans

As the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2016, also called the “dark night of the soul,” is few days away, I can’t help but reflect on my Mayan Pilgrimage and a journey of deeper awakening that occurred exactly 4 years ago, in 2012. I am feeling the urge to share my personal story with you.  Even though Solstice 2012 did not meet expectations of apocalypse or instant enlightenment, it is important to understand the true significance of what did occur on that day of Planetary Initiation.

My story starts in the beginning of 2012 when I received an energetic healing from a friend. During the healing, my soul showed me few of my incarnations on Earth with one of them being most vivid and grotesque:  I am a Man, standing on steps of a pyramid in ceremonial clothes, looking like a Shaman, and all of a sudden I am beheaded by someone I knew.

Fast forward few months after that experience, I left my job, sublet my apartment, and headed to South America to find more answers. After experiencing various grandmother ceremonies in South Columbia (Putumayo), and later in the jungles of Peru, my visions told me to head to Guatemala.

On my birthday in March, I found myself by the beautiful lake – Lago Atitlan, surrounded by magnificent volcanoes. I felt right away at home. With a guidance of a local priestess, I stayed at San Marcos for several months studying Mayan calendar, astrology, and traditions. I also participated in numerous cacao ceremonies facilitated by the local shaman, Keith.

I was advised to travel to all the sacred Mayan sites to deepen my quest. Each site, the Guatemalan priestess explained, represents certain vibration and chakra.  I started my journey in Copan, Honduras, then Tikkal in Guatemala, and later Palenque in Mexico.

It was in Tikkal, the 7th chakra of transcendence and higher consciousness, where I found the pyramid from my past life. After exploring Tikkal with many adventures during day and night, in the Mundu Perdido section of Tikkal, I understood what happened. The Mundu Perdido (Lost World) is the largest ceremonial complex dating from the Preclassic period. The complex was organized as a large astronomical complex consisting of a pyramid aligned with a platform to the east that supported three temples.


While sitting on the steps of the Lost World Pyramid, I remembered how in that life as a Mayan Shaman, I consumed mushrooms and sacred cacao. This alternate state of consciousness would allow me to tune to the stars and converse with the Sky people – alien and ethereal angel beings. My grotesque death was a Mayan ritual that allowed me to pass from this earthly existence back to the angelic realms.

I returned back from many months of travel to New York City wiser and more detached. I rekindled my relationship with someone I dated before my trip. However, just as I got rid of my apartment and donated many of my possessions, God had another plan for me. I found out that I am pregnant with a baby boy. His name, Alexander, and his purpose as a rainbow child was channeled to me only a week after the surprising news. Everything in my life seemed to turn upside down. My relationship with the father of my child was unstable and emotionally distressing. With divine guidance, mid December, I found myself again in Guatemala, this time 7.5 months pregnant.

I joined a large international group that was on a Mayan Pilgrimage. We had an amazing group of healers and Mayan shamans. Visiting many sacred Mayan locations, we performed numerous dance and sacred fire ceremonies.

On Dec 20, 2012, our buses arrived to Tikkal in the evening. I had no idea what was our plan, but trusted the outcome. While many in the world were worried about this moment in history of mankind, I was rejoicing when the elders chose to set up the sacred fire right in Mundu Perdido. I just knew I meant to be exactly there in Tikkal where it started and ended thousands of years before. I was carrying new life into the new epoch.

It was a long night of chants and rituals. At some point I fell asleep and my dreams were beautiful, filled with sacred geometry patterns.

Dec 21, 2012 was not an end of a Mayan calendar, but a day of spiritual graduation. We graduated out of a 26,000 year cycle into a new beginning of unity.

Since 2012, the journey into the New World has begun. We have been receiving the Galactic Codes of activation during portals and stargates. They have been upgrading our 12 Strand DNA, accelerating the crystallization of the light body, and helping us to shift to 5D New Earth reality. Over the course of last few years and more so last few months, I and many of my friends have been experiencing Ascension flu symptoms that range from ringing in the ears to fever and changes in taste.

2016 has been a year of acceleration and passing. Few beautiful souls who deeply touched my heart suddenly passed away. During my process of grieving, I have been connecting to the Angelic realms and the Galactic Family. I started reaching out to alien beings who oversee our evolution during my dream or awake time such as Acturians and Ashtar Command. I also actively reach out to various Archangels (Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, and others) for guidance and help.  I call the Archangels for help to clear entities (elementals, fallen angels, demons, and other energies that don’t belong to us but attach to us when we are vulnerable) , commanding them to step out and be contained, sending them to the light.7e159f48b31d924c7821d6305e355a2e

This Winter Solstice of 2016 is bringing awareness to the duality of darkness and light, and that finding balance is required. Interference is currently prevailing in politics to highlight for those of us who are in the light what truly matters. What is most important is for us to resolve our karmic ties and timelines and step into the return of the wisdom of the ancestors: the remembrance of honoring Mother Earth, the reconnection to natural time cycles, awakening the feminine leadership and rebalancing the masculine and feminine energies within ourselves and our relationships.


Lifting the veil, there will be dissolution of corruption and greed. Standing Rock is a great example of how we are heading to more conscious interconnectivity, fighting to protect our water and Mother Earth. The most essential key in embodying the energies of the New reality (what Mayans call as the Sixth Sun) is to learn how to live from our hearts: speak the voice of self-love, and care for the good of the whole.


 The time is now, luminous Children of the Sun. Incomprehensible is the joy of creation, as you feel called to gather together in ever widening circles of the Great Heart Mandala of light, which will one day ignite a critical mass triggering a power surge, which will transmute matter into a higher octave of being. You are being called into wakefulness… Ancient Skywalkers rise up. Stand in the beauty and power of your true identity…Set aside self-doubt. You are a divine child of the Sun! Go where your heart draws you to share your great gifts. Surrender to the magic that you are as Love. And the miracle will be manifested here on Earth! Remember, we dance and sing here for the One Heart!

 ~Ariel Spilsbury & Michael Bryner from “The Mayan Oracle”

The New Life on Earth has already started in 2012, so it is time for us to step into this new evolutionary phase! Instead of fear, we must choose love. Let us celebrate and unite!  <3
