"This coming SPRING EQUINOX will bring with it a powerful turning point,
like a cosmic fork in the road for humanity.
This will be assisted by our solar system when several of our planets
change signs in the times leading up to the Spring Equinox.
Jupiter has already entered Aires, Saturn will enter Pisces on March 7 just before equinox,
and the Pluto will enter Aquarius on March 23 for over two decades.
(thanks to the astrology from Peter Mount Shasta)
Although I am not an astrologer, I am a earth oracle,
and I can feel these changes in cosmic energy are already happening.
The timelines are beginning to shift in way I have never seen before and we are along for the ride."

During this pilgrimage, Aluna Joy will be focusing on helping you learn to read, channel, feel, understand, etc... the messages embedded in these sacred sites and the energies they are providing us daily. You will understand and FEEL the powerful Ley Line that pulses through Palenque and why. This will translate to you being able to read other vortexes, sacred sites and ley lines all over the world. Once you FEEL it, you don't forget it! Enrique is a master of taking you right to the core of the heart in sacred ceremony. His soft and gentle heart wisdom can be applied to any walk of life. We are offering a space to really absorb new energy on the powerful and pivotal Equinox. We will go very slowly, and deeply integrate the new energies that are birthing now. We will take a lot of time to FEEL and UNDERSTAND what these sites have to offer. You will receive new, upgraded tools that can be used as your life unfolds.

ENRIQUE ENCALADA - Enrique is a wonderful, opened-hearted blend of new age and Maya traditions.
When Enrique had his first contact with the Sacred Knowledge at the age of 15, the revelation of these truths changed his life, and he began to follow a sacred path which has lead him in amazing directions. In 1984, he was the assistant to the Mayan Gnostic Congress of Atlantis in Merida, Mexico. In 1995, he participated in the Great Meeting of the Mayan Solar Initiation. This meeting deepened his Sacred Studies. That same year, he also fulfilled one of his life's purposes by going to Japan, where he found a lost part of his inner self. In Japan, he had his first contact with Buddhist and Shinto doctrines. After his return, he journeyed to Teotihuacan, Tlatelolco and the Maya lands to bridge the connections between the ancients of the Far East and those in MesoAmerica. In 1996, he received his first inspiration/vision to lead a meditation in Tulum. In January of 1998, he took part in the teachings of the 8 Verses of Mental Training given by Lama Geshe Tsultilm Gyeltsen. In September of 1998, under the sponsoring of Hunbatz Men and the Naga Ku Mysteries School in Japan, he was sent to Japan as an emissary to offer lectures about the Mayan Sacred Knowledge to Japan's New Age Community. There he discovered his Sacred Mayan name, Uc Ake Chan. In December of 1999/2000 during Y2K, Enrique participated in his first trip with Aluna Joy. Since then, he has had the honor to travel with her and her wonderful groups every Spring Equinox.
"With honor to all my spiritual brothers and sisters, I hope to help you to open the doors / gates for all of you, in the magic places of the Maya. In Lak ech A la Kin."
The Focus for this Pilgrimage
The world is not the same as it was. Everything has changed, even us. This is quite evident in the world that this is so. Nothing can be assumed. In many ways we are beginning again fron scratch like new children of the SUN. This is different for each person depending on their unique day born under the sun. This is your unique Mayan connection to the infinite Cosmos. We are learning to anchor ourselves to a new way of being, of living, communing with earth, humanity, our communities and most of all ourselves. Earth is ascending right under our feet now. Many of us have come to Earth for this exact time. You've known this in your heart since you were a child. We are the ones who came here just for this time. We are the ones we have been waiting for.
We are in a powerful potent time between time, between cycles to anchor a new light, truth and love into a new foundation and this will impact many generations out into the future. This is the time to be a part of this divine, global awakinging. We made a commitment to anchor our ascension before we took on this human form. We are hard-wired for change deep in our souls, and we naturally gravitate to higher frequencies. It is why we don't fit in the usual societal circles. It is why we feel out of place in the world. We tend to have unusual perspectives on what has happened in the past, what is happening now, and what we foresee that we will experience in the future. And.... the beauty of groups.... has always been that we find our soul family in each other, and we trigger each other's ancient memories. When we gather as a group and hold our circle firmly and lovingly as one throughout the pilgrimage, we bring strengths from our unique experiences from which others will benefit. And others may have a strength you may need strengthening. This is the beauty of a group that was drawn together by pure spirit. We become more whole, healed, stronger, wiser. And then in this wholeness, we can help anchor love into the earth that will circumnavigate around the planet on Earth's major ley line, the Plumed Serpent Ley Line.
In March 2020, we revisited this area. On the last day it was clear to us that the sites were being completely rebooted. This is why we dearly love these sacred sites. As most sacred sites are linked up to ley lines, they receive new incoming energies first, before they infuse and bathe the rest of the Earth and humanity in this new light. This is a joyous time for us to ANCHOR our new, UPGRADED SELVES with JOY, and PEACE and most of all LOVE. We are excited to open our hearts to receive these new frequencies, and to finally integrate the new codes of creation that have just arrived in this new cycle. The Earth's new energy is arising, and we are becoming the twice-born children in this new field of manifestation. We are inviting you to join us in this great homecoming to the heart you remember!
Creation is always in a constant state of change. Old worlds fade away, and new worlds are created. This cycle is prophesied to bring about an ascended form of the divine power of the Great Ocean of Creation (the Divine Feminine). These are the creative powers of the universe. It is not a gender, but is a power and light that is available to all living things. This ascended state, that is already with us, is calling us to awaken and empower and reach a higher plateau of spiritual existence. It has come time that we assimilate these powers of creation.
The creative force, the divine feminine, is in a deep process of re-establishing itself in Earth's material field. Much of this creative force is anchored in the crossing of ley line nodes (earth chakras) many of which also anchor the world's sacred sites, temples and pyramids. It is in these sacred sites that we can directly download this frequency into our bodies, memory, etc... in the echo of those who have awakened to this wisdom before us.
Many of us have come to Earth at this time to be a part of this divine global awakening. We made a commitment to ascension before we took on this human form. Many souls have found one another, their tribe, to join forces for this huge task. We trigger each other's ancient memories, codes and transformations. We have gathered in legions of light. DNA is being upgraded, and frequencies are rising, because the divine feminine is rising up as well. It is crunch time for humanity and we know it. We either step up to the plate and swing, or try to return to the hamster wheel from which we came. But we know all too well there is no going back anymore, only forward to our brilliant new future. All this is happening now because we are brave enough to take the next step, even though we do not know where this step is going to end up. It is radical divine trust and faith in the greater cosmos that allows our life to exist at all. We are planning to celebrate over this Equinox in the deeply healing, regenerating, tranquil and peaceful green jungles that are drenched in this creative force of the universe . . . the sacred creative power of the divine feminine.
We invite you to join us. Come and recode yourself! Realign your divine center. We have been in major cosmic wobbles for some time now. Our focus is to anchor to these new creative energies and drop into a relaxed and harmonious way that will restore our mind, body and soul.
Aluna's long history with Palenque.
"Palenque is my favorite sacred site of the Mayan world. 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).
read the story here. 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 received a rare energy download. 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, and we would again experience Paradise on 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. I was able to understand this energy, but it was not yet time to anchor this energy into our hearts, so we could be able use it consciously. Palenque has been my most reliable barometer for watching the evolution of Earth. I know that by watching the energy shifts in sacred sites, I can see a progression of events and the evolution of the Earth and humanity. I am called to return to Palenque over and over for this very reason.
Palenque - Knowledge - Wisdom
and the element of SACRED WATER
Palenque is a powerfully serene site that is situated in the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, surrounded by dense jungle and filled with parrots and howler monkeys. The Mayans believed that their ancestors came from the Pleiades, and Palenque itself is built as a mirror image of the Pleiades. Palenque was masterfully created to align with solstices, equinoxes, eclipses and zenith passages of the sun, and has also been built with advanced, sacred geometry. Here in the jungles are temples filled with hidden wisdom that hold the keys to living in a new era of enlightenment. It is time to finally begin the task of manifesting the vision of a new world that we hold so dear to our hearts. We now are living in an unstoppable energy, a chain reaction to manifest paradise.
Palenque and surrounding sites, like Bonampak and Yaxchilan , have held mystery and intrigue for thousands of years. It is considered by many to be an ancient school for spiritual initiates. Palenque shelters a living library that reveals universal truths to those who listen with the open heart. This living library of Wisdom, and the powerful Earth Merkabah that covers the entire city, connects with a universal golden grid. Palenque is built with advanced sacred geometry using the Golden Mean Spiral. It is considered to be an ancient mystery school for spiritual initiates. In the Keys of Enoch, Palenque is considered to be the head of a huge, geographical, dove grid anchoring a new definition of peace and wisdom. The locals call Palenque "The Navel of the Earth". Palenque is an activator for intuitive understanding and can accelerate our psychic abilities. We feel this will be one of the first areas on Earth to fully anchor the new world energies.
Yaxchilan - Grounding - Balance
and the element of SACRED EARTH
Yaxchilan is hidden deep in the jungle between Guatemala and Mexico on the Usumacinta River. The ancient name for this city was probably Pa' Chan. Yaxchilan means "green stones" in Maya. The site is particularly known for its well-preserved, sculptured stone lintels set above the doorways of the main structures. These lintels contain hieroglyphic texts and imagery that describes deep Shamanic practices.
Yaxchilan teaches us to balance between the earthly world and the ethereal world. Its mysteries are buried so deep, that it makes any one who visits here dive deep within themselves. Here, described in its famous lintels, is the process of capturing, mastering, and becoming free of one's individual ego. Once this state of consciousness is achieved, we become ONE with all life.
Bonampak - Initiation - Ascension
and a NEW ELEMENT
We don't have a name for this new element yet, but it is coming, and I feel it is a grounding element that is opposite of Ether. This can only happen in this new cycle. The Spiritual manifests into form!
Bonampak has three Ascension Chambers that exhibit some pretty impressive, painted murals. Archeologists understandably have misinterpreted these murals. They theorize that the murals speak about conquest, power, claiming prisoners, sacrifices, etc.... This is based upon the western mindset of the current times. But when we tune into the living energy in this place, we know that the murals are not meant to be interpreted literally, but are spiritual in content, and in doing so, they teach us self-mastery of the lower self and egos. Bonampak teaches us how to master the negative side of our egos and how to trust our inner truth. Jeshua learned from the energies in Bonampak when he walked the Americas (see the book "He walked the Americas"). We can feel his energy strongly here in Bonampak, but also in Palenque as well. Jeshua had to master his egos when he was tested and tempted by his negative egos for 40 days. These spiritual tests are very similar in many ancient cultures. We all have to master the ego to become enlightened and regain access over our God-given natural abilities.
Palenque, Yaxchilan & Bonampak are where the ancient starry ones lived Heaven on Earth. A Cosmic Messenger's energy, Pacal Votan's, still radiates from the Temple of Inscriptions. Many other Masters influence the energy of this area including the elder race we call the Star Elders or Invisible Council. Even Christ healed the sick and performed baptisms in the Queens Falls when he visited Palenque during the "lost years". He learned from the Star Elders about cosmic time, and the Star Elders learned from him about the Heart and Peace. Their energy is still there and so is their wisdom. Palenque is nothing less than pure magic and is still one of my favorite areas after traveling three decades in Central and South America.
