The Awakening of the City of Light
- Palenque, Mexico. March 2010 ~ Aluna Joy

Angels Above - Artist Bruce Harman

Palenque is my favorite sacred site of the Mayan world. I have been exploring its mysteries and watching its energy subtly evolve for one complete Katun cycle (a 20 year cycle). My passion for Palenque began in 1990, in my more radical, younger years, when I snuck into the site after hours and spent the night (A long story). It was during this overnight stay, while sitting in the Temple of the Sun, that I was a witness to something that changed my life forever. I heard the music of the spheres, learned about the creative force of the universe, and saw a glimpse of the future regarding when this energy would return to Earth. I was aware of an ethereal city that floated high above Palenque. I knew that this city of light would return one day along with the ancestors and the starry ones who had lived here a long time ago. Palenque has been my most reliable barometer for the evolution of Earth. This year, my long wait for what I saw in 1990 was completed.

I know that by watching the energy shifts in sacred sites, we can see a progression of events and the evolution of the Earth and humanity. In our Maya pilgrimage in 2008, it was clear that something was dramatically shifting in Palenque. The heart of the site was reactivated, and the energy of this reactivation was obvious to anyone who had experienced the site before. It was clear that the creative force of the universe, and the light that was once in Palenque before, was beginning to return. During our following Peru trip, we saw similar energy shifts in Machu Picchu and other surrounding sites. Then we walked between the worlds in our 2009 trip to Tikal and Copan.

As of Equinox on March 20, 2010, the ethereal city floating above Palenque is now beginning to descend upon the ruins. This energy is now merging with the temples. The temples are beginning to radiate this pure creative light/energy out into the world. The temples are literally sparkling. It is bringing a depth and a sense of calm that is indescribable. It is now a part of the emerging new world.

I know that if Palenque is radiating this new energy out into the world, very soon the entire planet will feel its uplifting energy. It is apparent that the temples of Palenque and the surrounding area are a heartbeat away from being fully re-awakened. Most sacred sites are placed on alarm clocks to re-activate at specific times in the future. It is obvious that the future of the new world is approaching very quickly according to what we see in Palenque.

On March 20th (Equinox), we experienced two earthquakes . . . one of which we felt. One was to the north of us (Offshore Jalisco, Mexico 03/20/2010 at 21:33:04 - 4.7 magnitude), and the other was immediately south of us (Chiapas, Mexico 03/20/2010 at 21:55:50 - 5.3 magnitude). These earthquakes released a huge amount of negative energy from the earth. This is what earthquakes do. When the negative energy is released, it allows space for new light to fill this void.

On Pakal Votan's birthday, March 23rd, it was apparent that the influx of light was flooding Palenque profusely. It was the most powerful energy rush that I had ever felt in Palenque during the last twenty years. In the past, the way I connected with Lord Pakal was to see him deep inside the Temple of Inscriptions in his famous resting place. But now, he is at the top of the temple steps looking down over the city. He is returning.

By simply watching, we can see how changes in the sacred sites affect human beings. Our group this year was definitely working from the heart. They did not have much need for questions and answers. They stayed present in the moment, and many lost track of time. They wandered the site and felt with their hearts. You could easily see the effect the energy of the site had on them. We felt really blessed to be witness to this incredible new pulse of energy that was making a powerful connection between our head and our hearts. I also noticed that many in our group had little coughs. Even the staff at the hotel seemed to be clearing their throats. I think this was to open the passage between the mind and the heart so the wisdom being imparted could be integrated.

By March 24th, the energy pouring in was almost too much to bear. The energy was so full of new light and energy that it felt heavy to our 3D bodies. Many in the group found themselves taking naps under trees and on temple steps. The hoards of tourists did not arrive this day, and I think for good reason. We nearly had the entire site to ourselves. Even the local sellers began to leave early.

I had a great need to lie down on the ground and have my spine touch the ground. I could literally feel the undulating, kundalini energy rising up from the earth and connecting with my body. When I opened my eyes, I could see little micro spheres of light. They were dancing in the air in an organized, yet chaotic way. I kept blinking thinking that I was seeing things. These little spheres of light felt like they were whole universes unto themselves. I also felt like they were the ancestors returning. The temples were vibrating so strongly that the doorways were blurred. You could see the vibration distort visual reality. It was like we could see two or three dimensions at once. It was transforming before our eyes. During these two days of intense energy, time seamed to stop . . . or race ahead. Time wobbles were very apparent to everyone. So much has changed, yet we do not understand what has changed. The coming weeks and months will reveal what began here over Equinox.

Awakening is not something we can plan or predict . . . its gift comes to us, unaware, when we are not looking for it. ~ Aluna Joy
