Crop Circles and Mayan Time
Aluna Joy Yaxkin
July 1998

Everyone said it was to early in the season too see a crop circle, as I began my journey half way around the earth to be a presenter at the Third International Mayan Dreamtime Festival in Glastonbury, England this past May. The festival organizers, Alloa and Mikhail, founders of the Sun and the Serpent Mystery School, extended the invitation and I accepted immediately. Weeks prior to the festival, I started having a deep spirit calling and vivid dreams about my genetic ancestors. I began to receive a calling, a presence, from something I did not understand, something that felt alive. It was clear the journey was to be a profound one.

The conference was a glorious gathering of diverse people from around the world. The festival worked to bridge the gaps between all the various perspectives of Mayan Cosmology and tradition. I presented my multimedia program and shared about the connections between the Maya and Inca. Mary Locke of Maya Messenger letter presented a heavily attended workshop on how to access the frequencies of the Mayan glyphs and symbols. Peter Handl and Anton K'ornblum shared modern day interpretations of the Mayan calendar. Olympia of the Mayan Mystery School in Spain presented her awesome discoveries of Mayan pyramids in Spain. Carl of Sun and the Serpent Mystery School presented an audio visual presentation on the 20 Sun glyphs. Alberto Ruz from the Rainbow Peace Caravan spoke on the modern day problems of the living Maya and on the evening of May 3rd, Alberto rocked our spirits to the bone with a powerful closing ceremony. The weekend passed all to quickly.

A large percentage of the gathering continued on the following Monday, May 4, to participate in on site ceremony at Barrow Mump and the ancient stone circle at Avebury. It was to be my first experience of sacred sites in the UK, the land of my ancestors. I had no idea what to expect.

Still on Pacific Standard Time, the mornings in the UK seemed like the middle of the night to me. I had fallen asleep on the bus and dreamt of the pounding drums of the night before. Suddenly I awoke with the same unreal alive presence I had felt before my journey. There it was... that strange yet familiar feeling that something was alive and calling me. I tuned into my inner vision and saw a great yellow Sun in a field of gold. I could see a huge flow of energy/information flowing into the circle from the cosmos. I jumped up and said "I FEEL A CROP CIRCLE".Many chimed from the back of the bus. "ITS TO EARLY FOR CROP CIRCLES." Again I said "There IS a crop circle and it is in a yellow field of rape seed. IT'S A SUN," I shouted! Being an overly enthusiastic person and traveling in a somewhat reserved country, many just smiled at my continuing announcements. How could I, a person who has never been to England before or even seen a crop circle, feel the presence of one?

Our bus wound through the beautiful English countryside and within a mile or so we could see Silbury hill. AND.... just behind this famous sacred site was a GIANT SUN CROP CIRCLE in a field of golden yellow rape seed! The sight of it nearly knocked me over as I gasped for air to spit out the words "Look ... a crop circle!" The our group was headed for Avebury, not Silbury hill, so when the bus stopped I jogged nearly 2 miles to touch my vision of the Sun on Earth.

When I arrived, complete with monstrous blisters on my feet, I entered the first crop circle of the season, complete with 33 beautiful golden solar petals. There were a few people inside and soon I discovered that the circle manifested the night before between 2 and 4 AM on 1 Cimi (May 4) creating a bridge between worlds. This circle manifested directly after our walloping closing drumming / singing ceremony at the Mayan Dreamtime Festival. The feelings I felt inside this circle were so astounding. Every pain and ache in my body was gone. I felt like a child and could not contain my whooping and screaming out of joy and excitement. There was a huge river of energy coming from the cosmos. I became a human bridge between the Earth and the sky. I was in a crop circle in England, but I was also in the stars and completely connected to my cosmic brothers and sisters! I felt like I was on top of a pyramid and the great cosmic Sun was shining down on me!

One of the main focuses of the Mayan Dreamtime Festival was the Mayan calendar. When we use the 13 numbers and 20 Sun glyphs together we use the number/frequency of the 33. The center frequency of the Mayan Tzolk'in is also 33! The number of our vertebrae and Christ consciousness is the vibration of 33.

Mind blowing information was released about the Tzolk'in during our recent trip to Guatemala on Spring Equinox. It was about an ancient technology to help humanity greatly accelerate the awakening process by using sacred geography, the Tzolk'in and one's Mayan birthday. Within a 72-minute period based on a precise day within the Mayan calendar, a sacred site becomes fortified with a beam of cosmic light in which one can receive a lifetime of meditation in 72 minutes! These places can be rocky crags in mountains, pyramids and... why not.... crop circles. One thing for sure I know what a pyramid feels like, and this crop circle was a pyramid! AND it was getting blasted with energy from the cosmos.

Before I departed, I gathered up a few flowers from within the circle. When I returned to Glastonbury I made a crop circle flower essence with the sacred, healing waters of Chalice Well, knowing I had to capture the energy of the golden 33 to share with others around Mother Earth. Just as trips to the Mayalands and Incalands have changed my life, so have the stone circles and this crop circle changed me also.

In the days to follow I was blessed to experience many other sacred places of the UK, too many to share about in this article. I send my thanks to.... Stonehenge, which opened the gates for our group to perform ceremony inside the loving stones. Thank you, Gill Holland, for arranging our entrance to the stones. (not an easy thing to do). Blessings to Marcus Mason for sharing your great knowledge and experience of this ancient stone circle, and to Alberto Ruz for adding your powerful and special touch to the ceremonies we experienced there. Blessings to Avebury, the largest stone circle in the UK, which lays right on the Michael-Mary ley lines. These stones go back in time further that I can image. Blessings to Jude Stammers and the Coach House for sharing your great knowledge of Avebury, and offering me a space to share my knowledge of the sacred sites of the Americas.

To my buddy, Archangel Michael, guardian of the Glastonbury Tor. My introduction to England's sacred sites would not have been complete without your presence there. Sending thanks to the healing, heart opening energy and presence of the Chalice Well. I now understand the deepest sense of purity and healing. I could feel the presence of Joseph of Arimathea and Jesus as I stood at the edge of the well. My heart still cries with joy for my time spent there. Great and vast blessings to The Findhorn Foundation in Scotland. The sweetness, utter purity and peace I experienced there will always be inside of me. Awesome thanks to Mo Willett for arranging my time there and giving me space to present my multimedia presentation and workshop to the community of Findhorn. Yes Mo... I got home with all those rocks! Blessings to Mikhail and Alloa of the Sun and Serpent Mystery School for undertaking the huge task of arranging the International Mayan Dreamtime Festival. It was an incredible experience! May next year's event be even more activating and harmonizing within the diverse perspectives of Mayan Cosmology. Thank you for your hard work to bring us together with all our different pieces. I encourage all who read this to attend next year's event! Special HEART thanks to my sister Gill Holland who was the coordinator for all my speaking engagements while I was in the UK. To all those who touched my heart and soul, but I could not mention here.... you are in my heart!
