Living on the Edge of the New World
Aluna Joy Yaxkin
April 1997

As we enter a new Mayan year and face the challenges of becoming multidimensional beings in a Galactic Earth year (8 Caban), we ask ourselves some difficult questions about how to make the shift from one dimension to the next without a well laid path to follow. As we begin to take our first steps into a reality humanity can only image at this moment, we wonder what that first steps will look like, and how will we know if we are moving in the right direction. In my obsession with interdimensional travel I have asked the same question over and over. How do we let go of the 3D world while moving into the next reality?

Maya Elder, Hunbatz Men sent a message to me, and ask that I share it. In the message is a clue to how we can bridge the gaps between the dimensions easily and safely. It also shares how humanity can help keep the creative spirit/essence alive for Mother Earth, the plants and animals by honoring and respecting the things we can not yet see. As creators of our reality it is up to us to "do the work" as Hunbatz puts it. It is up to us to work with Hunab K'u, giver of movement and measure, and honoring spirit so it does not disappear and consequently our beautiful physical reality too.

Hunbatz Men's message..... It is an honor to share with you a message from my uncle, Don Beto, who was the last guardian of X Wenk'al, a Mayan ceremonial center. I have kept this message deep within my soul for many years, but the ever-increasing ecological damage that afflicts Mother Earth has prompted me to release it.

THE MAYAN COSMIC CALENDAR AND ITS CONNECTION WITH ESSENCE-SPIRIT - All that exists on Mother Earth has essence as well as spirit. To the Maya, essence and spirit are one and the same and their never ending cyclic language tells matter how to act to give way to the cyclic changes.

My uncle, Don Beto, explained this to me many years ago in a very simple manner. One day, as my uncle and I were walking in the jungle near Espita, my home town, he suddenly gestured indicating that we sit on some stones that were under a beautiful tree. As we sat down I perceived the aroma of mango fruit. My uncle was watching me and he asked me if I felt like eating a mango. Then, he said: "This is the right day for you to understand the essence-spirit concept."

My uncle asked me if I could see a mango on the tree and I answered that I did not see any. He said: "Today, the mango fruit is not present. That is the way of existence; everything arrives spiritually first. Just as the mango fruit arrives, so does everything that exists. That is how we humans arrived in this world, first spiritually and later physically."

"Hunbatz, remember the pyramids at X Wenk'al. That site is sacred to us, the Maya. Our physical roots are in that ancient site and it was there that our ancestors understood many laws on all that exists from the Great Spirit. In X Wenk'al, as well as in hundreds of pyramids on this continent, our ancestors performed ceremonies to honor all that was visible and all that was not visible. You cannot see the mango fruit, yet you can perceive its aroma."

Then, my uncle's expression turned sad. I respectfully asked him the reason for such change. There was a sad tone in his voice as he answered: "The way things are changing makes me very sad. Modern civilization is losing respect for all that comes from the Great Spirit." He continued: "Many of the different animals that I used to see around this jungle are physically gone, the big trees are gone too. Everything is disappearing physically and my spirit grieves for this reason. I always implore the sacred Hunab K'u that we are not left without the essence-spirit of all that is gone and that, some day, He sends again the physical beauty we no longer see."

In 1994, my Solar Sister Anja Korner (founder of Avebury Mystery School) invited me to give some lectures in England. While I was in that sacred land, I had the privilege of walking on one of the crop formations that have been found in wheat plantations at various locations in England. When I walked on one that had recently been formed near the Avebury pyramid, I could sense the change in frequency of the energy emitted and I felt as if Mother Earth were emitting energy upwards.

It is important to note that the day before, a group of initiates and myself had performed a ritual precisely in that magnetic site and the crop formation was not there, but it was there the following day and, as we walked on it, we entered its dimension. Some people claim that these geometric designs are made by the farmers of the area. I am absolutely certain that this formation was not man-made.

When I sat within the formation to meditate, I remembered my uncle telling me to always remember the teaching of the essence-spirit concept. Then I understood that, through this sacred site, Mother Earth was trying to communicate with intelligent, open-minded human beings that could understand the language of sacred geometry in its mathematical and vibrational aspects.

When I was in Florida in 1996, for reasons of cosmic coincidence, I met Kathy Doore, who gave me a photograph of a recent crop formation in England, which seemed to suggest that the essence and body of our Mother Earth was not in the orbit it had occupied for millions of years and this saddened me. I have carried this photograph to many ceremonial centers and, at each sacred site, I show it to Father Sun and, sometimes, to Sister Moon and, when in meditation, I send it to the heart of Mother Earth and ask for her advice as what can be done in order not to lose her essence and her body. I invite every human being to do likewise.

I still remember my uncle's sadness over the animals and trees that were gone and I too, feel sad. When you, Solar Brother and Solar Sister notice that in the area where you live the animals and the trees begin to disappear, you will realize that we are gradually facing isolation, that the life-giving spirits are disappearing, that the spirits that support this blue planet are being lost to another dimension. Should all essence-spirit be gone, Mother Earth may exhale her last sigh. Without her essence, her body may disappear and we all may pass to the memory of what once was here.

The purpose of the Mayan initiation work is to determine what can be done to avoid the aforementioned, as we were sent to this planet to care for it and to love it. Let us ask Hunab K'u to show us the way and, through meditation, come to understand the calendar cycles, which will enable us to pinpoint our errors.

All are invited to learn to adjust their lives in accordance with the sacred Mayan calendars and ask Mother Earth what is their cyclic responsibility so that we can all live in harmony with the essence-spirit of Mother Earth. This is the only way to preserve the spirit of our planet.

I invoke the spirit of all the masters of all times and dimensions, as well as the spirit of all forms of life so that they guide us and protect us and that they all be present as essence of the solar light on March 21 (Mayan New Year). At the Dzibilchaltun ceremonial center where the sacred Hunab K'u illuminates his children, I will pray so that, once again, we can see the light of wisdom as the Great Father Sun becomes visible for us to understand his cosmic cycles. Hunbatz Men - Maya Tradition

As we become more and more sensitive to essence/spirit, we will be able to perceive something about to manifest. If the essence/spirit of the next dimension can be felt through resonance before it arrives we can be at the right place at the right time just by being sensitive. Essence/spirit becomes our well-worn unseen path to the next world. If we feel drawn to a special place and/or feel an otherworldly presence or feel a higher frequency this very well may be a doorway to the next dimension.

One of the main reasons so many are drawn to sacred sites around the Earth is that all sacred sites exist on all dimensions at once. When we move into the next reality sacred sites will remain, but our modern society built of skyscrapers and superhighways will not. This is because sacred sites have a thread of energy that ties them to all the dimensions.

Sacred sites are built on energy vortexes. Because of the centuries of solar lightwork done in these places, a magnification of the frequencies has been built. When we visit sacred sites, we feel excited, as they exhibit high frequencies and lower magnetics. These altered frequencies and lower magnetics attract those who are working to be free of limitations. Sacred sites are actually preparing us for dimensional shifting. Higher frequencies help us clear out the unnecessary baggage we have carried for lifetimes and also give our body a workout so we will be in shape for the shifts. Lower magnetics prepare us for the possible disorientation we can feel when we enter a dimension that is timeless and non-linear. Sacred sites prepare our body and spirit for the shift of the ages.

Because we are the keepers and co-creators of this reality, if we ignore and dishonor the essence/spirit of the unseen, unmanifested worlds, we are actually working against nature and keeping reality from materializing. The winged ones, four-legged ones and the world of plants will not manifest if we have no respect for them. Why would they. If we kill them and cut them down, pollute them, why would they desire to manifest in this reality. If we don't learn respect for all of creation, we could literally erase life's participation in this dimension on Earth!

This is a hard message to share, but as humanity awakes to the spirit in all matter, I have absolute hope that we will begin to live and work in a sacred way again. We did not come this far through the burden of time and space to end it in this way. We are here to be victorious. We are here to witness and participate in the great celebration.

It is funny humanity as a whole feels that we have no impact on this reality. How can we believe so little of ourselves that we feel we are just blowing in the wind, as if by accident, just witnessing or being a victim of this reality. The big issues we face today on Mother Earth are directly related to our lack of self-esteem. Isn't it funny that clearing up old self-esteem issues could save the Planet! Think about it! We need to realize, honor and respect our creative force and realize we are creators. We hold this reality together. We are the keepers of the Earth. When we truly honor ourselves and our awesome creative power we will again live in a sacred way where we honor all life. When we honor all live the essence/spirit of all living things will manifest.

Humanity is waking up, and in this important year we are riding the crest of a very big wave. We are living on the edge. We are living between worlds. How we live, the choices we make, the sensitivities we develop, and our love and honor for all life will see us through.
