DIVING INTO PREHISTORIC TIMES
This adventurous 7 day Sacred Mythic Journey begins in the Yucatán Peninsula where we trace the present-day reverberations of the Dinosaur-killing meteor impact. This intriguing cataclysm event has left its imprint on evolution when the giant asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, leaving modern birds as their only descendants. This in turn allowed for planet earth to be a habitable environment for modern-day humans to evolve and thrive. This cataclysm had extraordinary repercussions for Earth’s evolutionary processes, as these viscous colossal reptilian creatures transmuted into the magical modern-day remains of their evolutionary footprint as the colorful macaws we will witness flying about in the jungles of Mexico; capturing the colors of the rainbow in their magnificent wings.
THE MYSTICAL SINKHOLES OF THE YUCATAN THE DINOSAURS SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES FOR
Also on the Yucatan Peninsula in modern day Mexico lie some six thousand cenotes – sunken waterholes used by the ancient pre-Hispanic peoples hundreds of years ago. They were used for a plethora of activities, the most logical being for fresh drinking water and the more macabre alternative was ritual sacrificing to their gods. But if the dinosaur-destroying meteorite that led our monolithic friends to extinction sixty-six million years ago never crashed into our planet, we never would have had these beautiful natural wonders. The Chicxulub crater off the coast of Mexico is highly regarded by scientists as the crater formed from the meteorite impact that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs. Along the rim of this crater is the highest density of cenotes ever documented, which happens to be available for all of us to adventure (or dive!) into. So ipso facto – no dinosaur-ending meteorite, no awesome cenotes.
Given the harsh landscape of Mexico, fresh drinking water wasn’t exactly easy to come across. The cenotes were a God-send in the eyes of the Maya, who had been using them for over a thousand years. The rain would slowly filter down through the limestone bedrock and collect in these underground caves for the people to access when necessary. However, it wasn’t all beautiful swimming and plentiful water. In the times of drought, the Maya often used ritual human sacrifice to appease their gods.
The Sacred Cenote at Chichen Itza for example (a pilgrimage site for Mayans) contained the remains of several humans of various ages as well as other material sacrifices such as jade, gold and pottery. Do not be afraid as every culture in the world has gone through a phase of worshipping the darker forces of this universe as well as the light, and the Maya are no exception to that rule as human beings shifted through the times and the different Yugas as described in Hindu teachings.
But that isn’t to take lightly why it is that the Maya regarded these significant power spots as a place of worship, spiritual rituals and a portal through which to directly commune with the gods, as ascertained by their beliefs in certain cenotes reaching their particular gods.
ADVANCED KNOWLEDGE HIDDEN IN AN ANCIENT CIVILIZATION
Reflecting what we would now consider a melding of religion and spirituality, the Mayans worshipped gods which represented the most revered aspects of nature. The Mayan religion involved several aspects of nature, astronomy and rituals. Most Gods represented a form in nature, for example, the Sun God, Kinih Ahous, or Maize God, Yum Kaax. The Mayans were known for their calenders and astronomical buildings. These were used during their religious rituals. Similar to the Egyptians, the Mayans built pyramid-like temples for religious reasons. Moreover, just like the ancient Egyptians, the Mayan civilization had extremely advanced and accurate knowledge in regards to astronomy and it is curious to wonder how and why these ‘primitive’ civilizations were so concerned with celestial happenings and the affairs of the gods. Exactly how they managed to acquire such precise scientific information is a mystery, since technology to do so back then simply didn’t exist according to current historic teachings.
The basic credo of Mayan belief was that virtually everything on the planet had a divine life force, or k’uh. Inanimate objects were no exception and the inherent belief of the sacredness of things, animals, and people is what drove the greater part of Mayan mysticism.
THE END OF THE MAYAN CALENDAR AND THE END OF AN EPOCH
Among their other accomplishments, the Mayas invented a calendar of remarkable accuracy and complexity. The ancient Mayan calendar is known to be more accurate than the Gregorian calendar that is currently in use today. If you have heard of all the hype in relation to the end of the Mayan calendar implying an apocalypse – this is baseless, unfounded propaganda purported to create confusion and distraction from the truth, it is a deep misconception of a much grander reality.
While researching the 2012 end-date of the Mayan Calendar, John Major Jenkins decoded the Maya’s galactic cosmology. The Maya discovered that the periodic alignment of the Sun with the center of the Milky Way galaxy is the formative influence on human evolution. These alignments also define a series of World Ages. The fourth age ends on December 21, 2012, when an epoch chapter in human history will come to an end. His book, ‘Maya Cosmogenesis 2012’ reveals the Maya’s insight into the cyclic nature of time, and prepares us for our own cosmogenesis–the birth of a new world.
