MAYAN SOLSTICE CEREMONY – SATURDAY JUNE 20TH – 1pm BST, 5am PST, 8am EST

First ever live broadcast of a Mayan Solstice Ceremony – live-streamed from Guatemala

The Mayans were the inventors of astronomy. Their main interest, in contrast to Western astronomy, was to study the movements of the Sun over its latitudes. The studies of the stars carried out by the Mayans continue to surprise scientists to this day. Their obsession with the movement of celestial bodies was based on the cyclical conception of time, and astronomy was the tool they used to discover the influence of the stars on the world. One of the great phenomena that they managed to discover was the Solstice.

Due to the current times, our Mayan elders are allowing us to broadcast this ancient sacred ceremony, as they feel it’s important for more people to be able to connect to the powerful energy available at this time of Summer Solstice. Our intention is for prayers of healing and unity to reach far and wide, bringing light to the entire planet.

MESSAGE FROM NANA AMALIA:

“We, Mayan spiritual leaders are preparing ourselves for the 20th and 21st of June which fall under the energies of Tijax and Kawoq in the Mayan calendar. Based on the Mayan astrology, these days mark a very important event for humanity, we celebrate Summer Solstice. Our ancestors never removed themselves from the cycles of the cosmos and Mother Earth, to which human beings need to return to recuperate harmony and balance with life.

The solstices and equinoxes are times of celebration and of giving thanks to Ajaw (God) for the movement of the celestial bodies, the Sun, the Moon, and Mother Earth. The solstices happen twice a year, it’s the moment the Sun is the furthest from the Equator and closer to the poles of the Earth. When the Sun is closer to the North Pole, it marks summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere, when the Sun is closer to the South Pole, it marks Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. The solstice marks the increasing or decreasing hours of light in a day.

The Northern Hemisphere being where we perform the Mayan celebrations, the Winter Solstice falls on December 20, 21, 22 with fewer hours of light and the Summer Solstice June 20, 21, 22 with more hours of light”

“There’s no end of the world marked in our calendar as the fatalists and manipulators are once again trying to fool us into thinking. It is the end of the actual system. This new cycle is a cycle of harmony, peace, tolerance, and balance. It brings a new conformation that will modify the socio-economic system currently in place. The destiny of humanity will be according to our willingness to these changes, it’s up to us to act and set our minds with a more positive attitude and not generate a psychosis of calamity.

The people are crazy about the end of the world coming when instead, they should be thinking about the purpose of why they were born.

Let’s remember the life we have is not eternal, the only certainty we have is that sooner or later everyone will die, and then, we will be the ones in charge of judging ourselves. This is the final judgment day everyone talks about, the day of our death and then, we won’t be able to lie or cheat ourselves, at this moment we will answer about what we did with the wonderful opportunity that we call life outside the transcendental historic moment that we are currently living in the planet.

Our own existence is equally transcendental, and we can’t waste it or lose time engaging in daily insanity. Our destiny as people in the current times is to be a guiding light, we together with other native peoples, we are sending out a call for our brothers and sisters to transform, to search for their well-being, to live in harmony.”
