The Butterfly of Illumination

Yellow Sun Wavespell
Power of Clarity and Enlightenment

October 15-27, 2016

Yellow Sun is the energy of Light and warmth, reminding us to ignite our inner flame in order to feel empowered and glow. We have 13 days to become aware to whom we have been giving our power away so we can regain our authority and shine in our own light. It is a great time to clarify any misunderstandings we have with others bringing clarity into our relationships and within oneself.

This is the 4rd Wavespell 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.

Thank you very much for your beautiful feedback on my new website and to those that placed orders. We have very few planners and journals left as we just printed a small quantity of each in this first edition so, if you are interested, make sure to order soon as we will not reprint them for this cycle.

Sharing the butterflies for today, you can click on the images to see the video and the enlarged version:

Willow and the Butterfly
Symbio Wildlife Park

During a video shooting at Symbio Wildlife Park in Australia, little Willow was ‘photobombed’ by a butterfly! One of the park’s managers Kevin Fallon said about Willow, who is almost one year old, that “although she’s very affectionate, she’s a little bit more independent”. “She’s an absolutely adorable little girl and just loves people.” Thanks for sharing the video Jaap and Debbie.

Monarch Butterfly on Milkweed
LEGO Art by Sean Kenney

Beautiful photo taken by Pam Zimmerman during her recent visit to Phoenix Zoo. Artist Sean Kenney is currently touring North America with his Nature Connects exhibition where he shows over 100 sculptures created with LEGO bricks. In his words. “just as LEGO pieces interconnect, everything in nature is interconnected in a delicate balance”. The “Monarch on Milkweed” butterfly sculpture contains over 60,000 LEGO pieces with a wingspan of 8-foot/2.44 meters and it took four months of full-time work to design and build it. Your can read more about it and see photos of its creation progress here.

Thanks for continuing sending me material, photos, videos, and any experiences related to butterflies and transformational journeys so I can share them in future messages.

End of Red Castle of Initiations

The Yellow Sun Wavespell is the last one of the Red Castle of New Beginnings (September 6 to October 27, 2016). What were your intentions and main experiences during these 52 days? Which new projects and relationships did you start? This is a good time for reflection before a new Castle starts with the next Wavespell.

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.
