I was trained in 2006 to pass these rites on. I was lucky enough to receive five days of intensive training with Alberto Villoldo, Don Francesco from Peru, and many other Four Winds teachers.
This was a really wonderful experience. Receiving the final, ninth, rite from Don Francesco was a real privilege indeed and incredibly powerful – I felt as though my whole energy system had been ‘pipe cleaned’ as his powerful energy blasted teh rite into me!
Since then, I have provided the rites to many people in small groups and individually. Each time the experience is different and it is always magical and enjoyable.
Spirit knows how fast to give the rite to each person and what qualities he or she needs. We become a conduit for this energetic transmission rather than being involved in it. The difference it makes to each person’s life reflects the uniqueness of each of us and yet it also brings the same responsibilities and depth of love for the Earth to us.
Background to the rites
Munay-Ki comes from the Quechua word that means ‘I love you’ and is also taken to mean ‘Be as Thou Art’. In this current context, it refers to the nine rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power.
Handed down from generation to generation they exist within all Shamanic traditions, while deriving a form and style of expression unique to each culture.
The Munay-Ki offered here are derived from the great initiations of the Hindus Valley brought by the Laika, a group of courageous medicine men and women, across the Baring Straights from Siberia to the Americas during the glacial period some 30,000 years ago.
Ordinary men and women, who acquire uncommon grace and ability through prayer, study of the wisdom teachings and discipline, the Laika have kept the teachings safe until the moment came for their release to many more than their small group. They have faithfully accepted their guardianship for millennia, believing people would come to this initiation when they were ready and called to do so.
Munay-Ki is the key to taking a quantum leap in species evolution. It is a group of energetic transmissions that download directly into the Luminous Energy Field, which constitutes each individual at an energetic level, the codes for transformational evolution. These codes are downloaded into the chakra system, a group of seven major energy centres lodged within the body and attached to the spine. This spinal connection facilitates the information’s transmission to the neuro-physiology and brain of each recipient, offering them the potential to complete within one lifetime a process of evolution that would otherwise take many, many generations.
In this short video Alberto talks about the rites .
The Four Winds Society, which Alberto Villoldo founded to train western Shamans, has offered Munay-Ki across North America and Europe since around 2006.
The intention is that those who accept the gift of Munay-Ki will go on to initiate more of our fellow men and women into these rites. Rites, which form a significant step towards the creation of the next stage in the evolution not merely of humankind but of our home planet the Earth.
The principles of daily living incumbent upon all who take this offered opportunity of Munay-Ki are:
NON-VIOLENCE, TRUTHFULNESS, INTEGRITY, MODERATION and GENEROSITY.
These principles lay the foundation for the coming of a New World of harmony, love, and peace to replace our current World of disharmony, fear, and conflict, and are the underlying reason why Munay-Ki has become universally available now.
We have traveled through the end of an evolutionary era that lasted 65 million years and moved into a new era during the period of rare planetary alignment in December 2012, predicted millennia ago by the mathematical genius of the Mayan peoples.
This is why Munay-Ki (in this form and in many parallel forms across other cultures) are here now. It is one of the means whereby humanity recognises its place as an integral part of the Universe and participates in that switch.
There are nine rites split into three categories – Foundation, Lineage and the Rites of the time to come.
The Foundation Rites
Rite One: Healer’s Rite
Connects you to a lineage of luminous beings from the past, who come to assist you in your personal transformation. Awakens the healing power in your hands so that everyone you touch is blessed. There is tremendous spiritual assistance available, and these luminous ones work in our sleep to heal the wounds of the past and of our ancestors.
Rite Two: Bands of Power
Five luminous belts that are woven into the luminous energy field (LEF) for protection. They act as filters, breaking down any negative energy that comes toward the person, into one of the five elements. These energies then feed your LEF instead of making you sick.
Rite Three: Harmony Rite
Transmission of the 7 Archetypes into the chakras. First you receive serpent, jaguar, hummingbird and eagle; next you receive three archangels: the Keeper of the Lower World (our unconscious), the Keeper of the Middle World (our waking world), and the Protector of the Upper World (our super conscious).
Rite Four: Seer’s Rite
Extra-cerebral pathways of light are installed that connect the visual cortex with the third eye and heart chakra. This awakens the inner seer and your ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and Spirit.
Vibration of Angels and Archangels
The Lineage Rites
Rite Five: Daykeeper’s Rite
You connect to a lineage of master healers from the past. Daykeepers are able to call on the ancient altars to heal and bring balance to the earth, call on the sun to rise each day, and bring humans into harmony with mother Earth. They are the midwives, herbalists and curanderas. This rite helps you begin to heal your inner feminine, step beyond fear, and practice peace.
Rite Six: Wisdomkeeper’s Rite
You connect to a lineage of luminous beings from the past and the future. This rite is associated with the snow-capped mountains, perhaps a distant memory of our ancestors from the Himalayas. This rite helps you to begin to heal your inner masculine, step outside of time, become steeped in the medicine teachings and taste infinity.
Rite Seven: Earthkeeper’s Rite
This rite connects you to the archangels that are guardians of our galaxy, stewards of all life on Earth. This rite connects you to the stars, and to the sun, our local star. It helps you learn the ways of the seer and dream the world into being.
The Rites of the Time to Come
Rite Eight: Starkeeper’s Rite
This rite anchors you safely to the time after the great change, said to occur around 2012. Your physical body begins to evolve into homo luminous, the ageing process is slowed down, your DNA is re-informed, and you become more resistant to disease.
Rite Nine: Creator Rite
Awakens the Creator-light within and brings forth a sense of stewardship for all creation, from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of galaxies in the universe. Once attained only through direct transmission from Spirit, it is now possible to transmit from one person to another.
As you work with the germination of these rites you’ll be touched and blessed by angels. You simply need to open yourself to the wisdom of the Earthkeepers, and all will be bestowed upon you.
