HAPPY FULL MOON!
With so much anger, violence, sadness and fear experienced on all continents, it is important more than ever to keep our vibrations high and focus on what helps us to grow, personally and collectively. As of this full moon onwards, we will meet monthly to play our drums in a sacred circle connecting with the pulse of Life and our own heartbeats as we hold our intentions in gratitude and love. While the gatherings will be physically held in Houston, we extend this invitation to all of you globally. Let us know if you want your name to be included in a mandala we will create for those that cannot join us in person. Our first meeting is this Tuesday, July 19 at 7pm Houston time (UTC -5hs). In addition to keeping you posted through my newsletters, we will have a dedicated community Facebook page where we will post the Full Moon Drum Circle invitations and everybody is invited to share stories, photos and experiences from any drum circle around the world.
SYNCHRONIZING WITH THE TZOLKIN CYCLE
The Tzolkin, Sacred Mayan Calendar, is a cycle of 260 days composed of 20 glyphs by 13 numbers. Each day combines a glyph and a number giving to it a specific meaning as an invitation to connect with certain aspects of our being. Every 13 days, there is a shift of energy and the glyph that falls on the first day sets the purpose for the following almost two weeks. In the modern application of the Tzolkin, the 13-day period is called a Wavespell, and there are 20 Wavespells in a cycle. If all this is new to you, the best approach is by playing with it instead of trying to understand technical concepts. You will see how magically and synchronically everything unfolds!
The Red Moon Wavespell is the 17th Wavespell out of twenty in the current cycle based on the modern count. From July 16 to 28, 2016, we are invited to feel, to flow and to just be! Let’s see what each of the Wavespell’s day represents in this current cycle by combining the Tzolkin’s 20 glyphs with one of the 13 numbers.
Saturday, July 16, Red Magnetic Moon
Purpose: the first day of any Wavespell sets the purpose for the specific period of 13 days. During the Wavespell of the Red Moon, the purpose is to awaken the Goddess within, independently of gender. What are you feeling right now?
Sunday, July 17, White Lunar Dog
Challenge: the second day of any Wavespell is the one that shows us the extremes. With everything that is happening around the world, it is difficult to just flow and feel happy. What can you do to stay centered in your heart?
Monday, July 18, Blue Electric Monkey
Bonding: the third day of any Wavespell is the one that “connects the dots”. As we allow ourselves to play in spite of the circumstances, we recover joy and things start flowing. Which uplifting things can you do today?
Tuesday, July 19, Yellow Self-Exiting Human
Shaping: the fourth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives shape and form. While there are many things we would love to change in the world but they are beyond our reach, we can always choose how we feel and what we do about it. How are you using your free will?
Today we connect with Mama Killa, Grandmother Moon, as we gather in a Full Moon sacred circle to assume our human responsibility and stewardship for all creation.
Wednesday, July 20, Red Overtone Skywalker
Empowering: the fifth day of any Wavespell is the one that empowers. When we want to restore our wellbeing and feel empowered, we need to “empty our backpack” from burdens. What feels as heavy on you at the moment?
Thursday, July 21, White Rhythmic Wizard
Balancing: the sixth day of any Wavespell is the one that brings balance. We recover balance when we feel self-confident and we raise and strengthen our self-esteem. What feels as magical for you?
Friday, July 22, Blue Resonant Eagle
Aligning: the seventh day of any Wavespell is the one that helps us to become centered. As soon as we “unhook from the drama” and allow ourselves to expand our vision, we are able to see the big picture and fly. What “blurs” your sight?
Saturday, July 23, Yellow Galactic Warrior
Integrating: the eighth day of any Wavespell is the one for integration. As we face our shadows with determination, we become fearless to move forward in our path. Can you integrate the energies of the “Warrior of doing” and the “Goddess of being”?
Sunday, July 24, Red Solar Earth
Pulsing: the ninth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives the last push prior to manifestation. The only way we can truly flow and feel is by being present in the moment and aligned with our essence. What helps you to feel grounded?
Today is the last day of the White Planetary Wizard Year, which started on July 26, 2015.
Monday, July 25, White Planetary Mirror
Manifesting: the tenth day of any Wavespell is the one that manifests. In order to manifest what we want, we need to use our discernment and choose what is in alignment with our principles and values. Are you ready to have your inner and outer worlds reflected in harmony?
July 25 is the Day out of Time in the 13 Moon Calendar, a day dedicated to ceremonies and artistic expressions and established as “Global Water Appreciation Day” by Dr. Masaru Emoto. And July 25 is also my birthday! : -)
Tuesday, July 26, Blue Spectral Storm
Releasing: the eleventh day of any Wavespell is the one that liberates. If we continue numbing our emotions with the illusion of avoiding suffering, things will not flow and we will not be able to transform. In which ways are you afraid of change?
Happy New Year of the Blue Spectral Storm! In the 13 Moon Calendar, this is a year of great intensity and change as we release the old and embrace the new to come.
Wednesday, July 27, Yellow Crystal Sun
Sharing: the twelfth day of any Wavespell is the one for cooperation. As we reconnect with the source of Life and all creation, we shine in our own light and irradiate it to the world. What can you share with others today?
Thursday, July 28, Red Cosmic Dragon
Transcending: the thirteenth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives closure. And finally, as we awaken the divine feminine energy and allow ourselves to live in more sensible ways, we feel great and ready for new beginnings!
Beginning of the Green Castle
The Wavespell of the Red Moon initiates the Green Castle of Transcendence, the fifth and last Castle of this 260-day cycle. From July 16 to September 5, 2016, we have 52 days to enjoy the fruits of our efforts and give completion to what we started at the beginning of this cycle as we celebrate our accomplishments.
May Peace prevail on Earth!

In Lak’esh means “I am another yourself!”, a Mayan greeting that recognizes the Divine in each living Being. It’s a message of Unity that reminds us that, when we give, we are also receiving. In this way, the Mayan honored and respected each other, reinforcing the belief that we are all interconnected: what we do to others and to our environment will also affect ourselves in the end…
Munay means both ‘Love’ and ‘Beauty’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Munay, translated as ‘To love’, is one of the three principles of the Andean way.
