Exploring Red Skywalker Wavespell

by Mariela Maya


A week ago, after receiving the news that my mother-in-law passed away, Jacco and I sat outside in our backyard in Houston to do a little ritual for her transition. While the seven candles with the rainbow colors were burning, four beautiful large black birds with a dark blue shinny coat (similar to ravens) flew by and stared at us from the trees, one of them singing for a few minutes.

A couple of hours later, as we closed the front door to take the taxi to the airport, a beautiful big butterfly flew between both of us, which was amazing considering it was a cold and windy day and there haven’t been butterflies around for a while.

Once in Holland, we accompanied the family to a shop to choose a flower arrangement for the funeral. His sister opened the book with options randomly and the answer was clear to everybody… a Butterfly!

Marijke was Red Earth guided by Red Moon and her funeral was on a Red Moon day guided by Red Earth. Before passing, she chose this poem for the invitation:

Hands receive, Hands give
Hands warm, Hands embrace life
Hands console, Hands let go

Without knowing it, her challenge was the Blue Hand! After a long time of suffering from cancer, she decided it was time to embark on a new adventure… just on a different level. While as humans it is always sad to go through this situation, death is part of life’s cycles and it is very beautiful to connect with it in a more ceremonial and meaningful way.


The Red Skywalker Wavespell is the fifth Wavespell of this cycle. From February 10-22, 2016, we are invited to explore new horizons! 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.

Wednesday, February 10, Red Magnetic Skywalker
Purpose: the first day of any Wavespell sets the purpose for the specific period of 13 days. During the Wavespell of the Red Skywalker, the purpose is to “empty our backpack” from all burdens so we can walk lighter in life as we embark into new adventures. What can you do in the next 13 days to alleviate whatever feels as heavy on you right now?

Thursday, February 11, White Lunar Wizard
Challenge: the second day of any Wavespell is the one that shows us the extremes. As we regain self-confidence and our self-esteem increases, we are willing to take risks and explore. In which areas of your life do you feel insecure at the moment?

Friday, February 12, Blue Electric Eagle
Bonding: the third day of any Wavespell is the one that “connects the dots”. As we fly higher and detach from the mundane, it is easier for us to see the big picture. How can you bond people and situations for things to flow in new directions?

Saturday, February 13, Yellow Self-Exiting Warrior
Shaping: the fourth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives shape and form. When we walk our path fearlessly, we move forward towards our goals. Where do you want to be as you make plans based on your objectives?

Sunday, February 14, Red Overtone Earth
Empowering: the fifth day of any Wavespell is the one that empowers. As we reconnect with Mother Nature and with our own essence, life is always an adventure! Do you allow yourself to recharge as you pay attention to synchronicities?

Monday, February 15, White Rhythmic Mirror
Balancing: the sixth day of any Wavespell is the one that brings balance. We feel balanced to explore when our outer and inner worlds reflect each other in harmony. What is life’s mirror reflecting back at you that doesn’t feel harmonious at the moment?

Tuesday, February 16, Blue Resonant Storm
Aligning: the seventh day of any Wavespell is the one that helps us to become centered. Going through storms not always is easy but, as in Nature, symbolic storms in life help us to realign in our path. Are you willing to embrace chaos as an adventure to get back on track when needed?

Wednesday, February 17, Yellow Galactic Sun
Integrating: the eighth day of any Wavespell is the one for integration. As we saw in the previous Wavespell, Yellow Sun is the one that brings clarity and illumination. I am writing this message while still in Holland and it’s very cold, rainy, windy and gray outdoors. In spite of outer conditions, Red Skywalker reminds us to also explore inner spaces so we can always choose to light a candle and embrace the warmth of fire in our hearts as we integrate our internal and external experiences.

Thursday, February 18, Red Solar Dragon
Pulsing: the ninth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives the last push prior to manifestation. When we nurture ourselves on all levels and ask for help when needed, we feel stronger and ready to explore further. Are you taking care of yourself as you empty your backpack?

Friday, February 19, White Planetary Wind
Manifesting: the tenth day of any Wavespell is the one that manifests. As we move freely like the wind, we are constantly embarking into new adventures. Are you communicating authentically as you make things happen?

Saturday, February 20, Blue Spectral Night
Releasing: the eleventh day of any Wavespell is the one that liberates. When we take time to be still and enter into our own darkness, it becomes easier to see what is there to empty. Do you take time to meditate and to go within?

Sunday, February 21, Yellow Crystal Seed
Sharing: the twelfth day of any Wavespell is the one for cooperation. When we continue exploring and allow ourselves to get out of our comfort zone, we blossom into our greatest potential. What are you willing to share with others so that everybody blossoms?

Monday, February 22, Red Cosmic Serpent
Transcending: the thirteenth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives closure. As we shed the past as the serpent sheds its skin, we empty our backpack and we restore vitality! It’s time to listen to our gut-feelings and follow our instincts as we choose to live life as an Adventurer!

White Castle of Refinement!

Every four Wavespells of 13 days each, a new Castle starts. The Red Skywalker Wavespell initiates the White Castle of Refinement, a period of 52 days to organize ourselves and give priority to what is important for us.

From February 10 to April 2, 2016, we are invited to refine whatever we started in the previous Castle. What are your priorities for the next roughly two months?

Note: The invitation each morning is to move the thirteen joints as you connect with their meaning for this specific Wavespell. After you go through the 13 joints, focus your attention on the energy of the day and allow yourself to be guided on what to do with it. Maybe you get inspired later during the day, so just let it happen. Each glyph has many layers and can be interpreted and experienced in different ways. With practice, it will become clearer on how to use it in ways that works for you.

And speaking about adventures….

NEW DATES FOR PERU: AUGUST 13-26, 2016 – details here. Are you coming?

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.
