A beautiful experience in Tiwanaku, Bolivia
Integrating our Spiritual and Human Nature
And Female and Male Aspects
During my recent trip to Peru and Bolivia, I had the chance to visit Tiwanaku (also known as Tihuanaku, Tihuanaco or Tiahuanaco).
Tiwanaku was the capital of the most important empire prior to the Inca and it is located in the Altiplano (high plateau) around 73 kms from La Paz in Bolivia, at an altitude of 3,870 meters above sea level (12,700 ft).
This ceremonial center, and Unesco World Heritage Site, is a great example of uniting the spiritual and political aspects of a society where both coexisted hand in hand. Its architecture is also based on astronomical aspects and relates to the agricultural calendar, the solstices and equinoxes.
The archeological site of Tiwanaku has two sections, the male side and the female side. You may have heard about Puma Punku, the female side and smaller area, which is famous for its “H” shaped block stones that are said to be associated to extraterrestrial activity.
One way to approach the larger section is by dividing it in three main areas based on the shamanic three worlds:
Upper World (Hanaq Pacha) – Akapana’s Pyramid
Middle World (Kay Pacha)- Kalasasaya’s Temple, Palace of Putuni and Kantatallita
Lower World (Ukhu Pacha) – Temple Semi-underground known as Templete
Without entering into details this time, I just want to mention that the famous Gateway of the Sun is located at Kalasasaya’s Temple and the carved head stones (many of them of aliens) are in the semi-subterranean temple.
What caught my attention most were the monoliths and their symbolism. The monoliths are large stones or stelae carved with meaningful designs, most holding a ceremonial cup (Kero) in their left hand representing the spiritual connection and a staff or wand in their right hand representing the political power.
My favorite monolith was Bennett, I totally connected with it. Unfortunately, it was not allowed to take photos there so I just downloaded this one from the internet to show you how beautiful and huge Monolith Bennett is (7.30 meters tall and weighs 20 tons)! Monolith Bennett was taken to La Paz in 1932 and returned to Tiwuanaku in 2002.
It was interesting for me to see in Tiwanaku the connection between the male and female aspects and the human and spiritual nature of our existence. In Andean cosmovision, the right path represents the Apus, spirit of the mountains and male energy, and the left path represents Pachamama, Mother Earth and the female energy.
Taking this concept into another level, the Sun (Tayta Inti) represents the male energy, power and strength, authority and wisdom, and the Moon (Mama Killa) represents the female energy with a more subtle and sensible quality, our receptive, emotional and intuitive nature. Both together express the union of the opposites, balance and harmony. This image, known as the Sacred Marriage, embodies the integration of duality by embracing and balancing our feminine and masculine energies. This is a similar concept as Yin and Yang, Shakti and Shiva, and the Goddess and the Warrior symbolism in other traditions.
Driving back to La Paz on my last day in Bolivia prior to returning to Peru the next day, I saw a beautiful rainbow from the road after some rain. I stopped counting in this trip how many rainbows Pachamama gifted me with! Will share them soon the photo gallery on my website.
I am also very thankful to my friend Jill that gifted me with special glasses to see the eclipse on October 23, 2014! Even though it was cloudy in Houston that afternoon, I had several opportunities to see Tayta Inti and Mama Killa beautifully dancing together in the Sky. And this photo is when the Sun was going down, after leaving the clouds behind!
Tribute to Dr. Masaru Emoto (1943-2014)
Dr. Masaru Emoto died on October 17, 2014, first day of the Wavespell of the Yellow Human. Dr. Emoto from Japan was known for his contributions to the world by showing how human consciousness affected the molecular structure of the water.
Born on July 22, 1943, Dr. Emoto was a White Crystal Dog. The White Dog is the energy of Universal Love and the Crystal Tone brings people together. In his work, Dr. Emoto showed how the water reacted to the vibration of positive thoughts, words, images and music, and how the energies of Love and Gratitude changed the geometric crystal formations of frozen water. You can see the beautiful photographs on his website here. People from all over the world have been using his teachings on a personal level, in group ceremonies and in global healing.
Confession: Since back from Peru, it has been difficult for me to catch up with all my emails and write this Wavespell message. I can blame it on the supermoons, eclipses, solar flares, Mercury Retrograde and everything that has been happening on a larger scale but, in reality, it has just been a hectic time for me while taking care of several things after an amazing stay in South America for over two months. All the planetary intensity also added to it, but there is no one to blame! As the Yellow Human teaches us, I chose to take one step at a time and be at peace with the idea of sharing this Wavespell message when it’s almost about to end. Will still try to be on time for the upcoming Wavespells though! : -)
To our Free will and wise choices as we continue integrating our spiritual and human nature!

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.
