Yellow Human Wavespell Butterfly of Wisdom

The Butterfly of Free Will

Yellow Human Wavespell

Power of Wisdom and Choice
December 6-18, 2016

A couple of days ago, I had a simple experience that turned out to have a great message for me. As I was about to enter to the supermarket in the evening, a customer came from the parking lot with his empty shopping cart and left it literally in the middle of the entrance inside the building. Since he was quite inconsiderate, I decided to bring this to his attention. When I told him that was not the place to leave the cart, he got angry and said that at least he brought it inside when everybody else leaves it in the middle of the parking lot. After I said that independently of what others do I always put the cart in the place where it needs to go, he became even more aggressive, made some sarcastic comments and then finally left. At first, the situation made me upset due to his action and mainly reaction. As I was leaving with my groceries, I ended up feeling grateful for this experience as a reflection of why many people do the things they do: is it ok to do something wrong just because everybody else does it? What happens if we choose to do things right and become the change we wish to see in the world?

And this is the main message of the Yellow Human: I am responsible for my actions and I consciously use my free will to make wiser choices for my own good and the highest good of all!

This is the 8th Wavespell out of 20 of this Tzolkin cycle of 260 days in its modern interpretation, which started on September 6, 2016 and ends on May 23, 2017. If you are just joining us, you can read about the invitation for this cycle here where you will also find useful documents you can download to get in tune with it daily.

Dakota Access Pipeline Project and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

In my last message, I shared a summary of what has been happening with the pipeline construction, the project supporters, Standing Rock Sioux members and ‘water protectors’. If you are not familiar with the situation, you can read about it here.

Three weeks after putting the project on hold, the US Army Corp of Engineers finally announced on Sunday that it will not grant permission for the pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota and will look for alternative routes including an environmental impact study.

Standing Rock Sioux members together with thousands of native and non-indigenous people at the campsite, and millions around the world, we are celebrating this announcement that honors the original owners of the land and protects the water supply and the tribe’s sacred sites.

Many opponents to the project fear the decision may not be permanent as it may change after January 20, 2017 with the new President-elect Donald Trump, who supports the project.

Energy Transfer Partners, the project developer, keeps saying that they already had the green light to proceed and will continue with the construction as planned without rerouting the pipeline. Project supporters, the US Speaker of the House and several State governors and representatives oppose the decision and use it as political criticism against the current administration.

Many condemn President Obama for not looking into the country’s overall interests and local infrastructure growth. Many others blame him for not caring enough for Native Americans people and stopping the project earlier. One way or the other, there is a lot of finger pointing, blame, guilt, selfishness, greed…. all shadows of the Yellow Human archetype.

What’s going on with HUMANITY? How about we listen and start taking care of Pachamama, Mother Earth? It’s not easy to be human in these intense times with the “modern lifestyle” we’ve created….

We have to start listening before it’s too late – Jane Fonda

Actress, writer and activist Jane Fonda shared this powerful message during her visit to Standing Rock:

“We have to take care of the Earth which supports us. Native American are leading the way, we better listen”.

Protecting Sacred Sites and Respecting the Source of Life

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe for the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Great Sioux Nation, has an important message for these times (click on the image below or here to read it):

“As these destructive developments continue all over the world, we will witness many more extinct animal, plant, and human nations, because of mankind’s misuse of power and their lack of understanding of the balance of life.”

We Must Take Care of the Earth

And this is a similar message from 1980 by John Trudell, who was a Native American author, poet, actor, musician, and activist.

“All of the things in the natural world are a natural part of the creation and feed off the energy of our sacred mother, Earth.”

“Our power will come back to us, our sense of balance will come back to us, when we go back to the natural way of protecting and honoring the earth.”

End of White Castle of Refinement

Every four Wavespells of 13 days each, a new Castle starts. The Yellow Human Wavespell is the last Wavespell of the White Castle of Refinement, a period of 52 days that started on October 28 inviting us to organize ourselves and give priority to what is important for us. Stay tuned for my upcoming surprise during the Blue Castle of Transformation!

We are responsible for our actions; may we all be conscious of our choices and use our free will for the highest good of all!

In Lak’esh & Munay,

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.
