I thought I would give a shout out and let you know how my adventure went in Palenque on the Equinox.... of how the 3 days of the 20th, 21first and 22 second of March 2023 rolled out...
I think I might have mentioned that the first message came from Niko, my Mayan guide on the 12th of Dec. (Guadalupe Day in Mexico) He said he had a vision that I had 4 doves around me and that on the 21rst of Dec. I would have 6 doves around me and that I needed to come to Palenque on March 21 to receive the 7th dove. Sometime in Jan. I had the download to go to the pyramid that Niko took me to last year on my 8th call (after a space of 10 yrs.) . As time went on THE CALL became stronger in me and I knew I just had to be there and I didn’t have the money to go. Time was running out. I had 5 retreat cancellations in 2 weeks and things looked very bleak. I had to call Niko and say I couldn't come. But the pulsations kept getting stronger. Out of the blue another download came to ask my family for a loan. My son chipped in, as well as my sister and my daughter gifted me some money from her first commission in real estate. Now I had the money to go but nothing when I got back. All of a sudden, a retreat request came in and I had the green light to go. Then 3 days before I left, a beautiful man returned for his second-deep dive with Paloma. So, I was set!
Some interesting numbers came about for this one. I am a 4/22 in numerology. The 21rst of March was the 7th new moon in a row. Palenque is a feminine temple and holds the energy of the 6th chakra, our third eye and intuition. It had been 16yrs .(7) since I received the Call from the Divine Mother to serve her and this medicine. 1 + 6 =7. When I got to Palenque they changed my room to NO. 4. My last ceremony with Paloma Blanca was on the 22nd of March....4/22 and April is 4/22/.....2023( =7). I am a 4 in the enneagram. Also, I have carried Paloma Blanca for 16 yrs. (7) and began my training with the aya of the sun for seven yrs. before the Call came...22 yrs. This was my ninth time answering the Call to Palenque. The total of the 9 Calls to Palenque has been in a 14 yr. span = (5) Change
I started out on Sunday the 19th from Cuernavaca after spending 2 days with Jose, my x and father of my children. To me he is my family. We have been intertwined for 50 yrs. It is very hard to watch while he is being consumed by cancer and somehow, he is still managing to hang in there. ..........It was a long travel day, 12 hours and it was raining in Palenque when I arrived. (Palenque was receiving a huge blessing and cleanse).
So, this is how my 3 days of answering the 9th Call went:
Day 1....As usual, the way I thought I would do these 3 days went out the window...not my plan, the universe's plan! My mantra going into this was.......show up...shut up......and listen!!! I was so tired after traveling I thought I just needed to chill and anchor into Palenque. I also knew that this first day I had to be a scout and remember how to find my way to this hidden temple again. Somewhat easy because this pyramid is right next to the hotel grounds. And also, not so easy, because I was walking alone in the jungle after the heavy rain and there are lots of wild creatures lurking about. I passed through the tree branches hiding the path when no one was around at noon on the 20th. I found the place where Niko had shown me the hole through the barbed wire fence to get to the other side, where the temple is. I found it had been totally blocked up and there was no way to enter. At first it was "oh shit.....then...." "but no, I have to go."... then..... "wait a minute...if I saw it in the vision then there MUST be a way to get to the other side." ......... I started to follow the barbed wire fence. It snaked and curved. I followed it and then it curved again and I was heading deeper into the jungle and still I kept on following the barbed wire.... until... Pooff.... NO FENCE !! I had to double back, following the fence again from the OTHER SIDE, climbing over huge tree roots and putting one foot in front of the other, very, very slowly. I was looking for the least steep path up the mountain, that's what it looks like...a big hill with ceiba trees and lots and lots of leaves and rocks. Last year Niko hauled me up because it is so slippery, but this time I had to do it myself. I found my trusty stick to be my helper. Ungracefully I made my way to the top and found the giant Mother Ceiba tree where Niko and I sat last year. The Ceiba tree is the sacred tree of the Mayan lands. This Mother is a giant. I tried to see the top of her and I couldn't. Her roots are way higher than my head...She is powerful!!!!!! My scouting mission was accomplished...I had found the path to the temple and the Mother Ceiba. As I turned to find my way down the pyramid, I heard..."Bring presents!!" Those little rascal spirits always want us to bring them gifts.
Day 2...the 7th new moon on the 21rst. I woke up and thought, hum, I think I will go visit the Venus temple where I went 3 times last year and pay my respects. I found my way easily and to my surprise they were lots of people working on remodeling the pyramid. The head engineer through me out and said I couldn't be there because they were working. I was shocked!! and also very, very sad because yes, they are restoring the pyramids, and also putting chains around them so no one can touch them. They are just to look at, and for taking photos. To me, this is a huge crime against humanity because these temples are energetic vortexs and Sacred!!
So my inner response to being thrown out was..."Fuck you…I am going to MY OWN PYRAMID ...thank you!"
I gathered what I needed and my handy yoga mat and set off for a much longer visit with the Mother Ceiba and just hang out. I knew my way but still had to go very, very slowly, definitely a step by step climb to the front of the Mother. I set my yoga mat in front of her, lay down and relaxed. I can't describe the peace and beauty I felt. So soft, the light was diamond like and I listened to the sounds of the beings in the jungle...first one bird, then another and after a while, a symphony. I had been wondering "what is this pyramid, what is its purpose.??" Somehow the knowing came and I understood that this was like the immigration building for all people entering Palenque in the Mayan times. It sits on the Plumed Serpent, St. Michael lay lines and it is the sacred water that was conveted. On even deeper levels I understood that this was the Hall of Records...the record keeper of all Palenque time. As I lay there, in peace, such peace, I grocked that I was receiving the energetic codes from the temple. After about 2 hrs. I felt ready to leave. I decided before going to ground my magic wand in the arms of the giant Mother Ceiba...It was like an alcove with her huge roots sheltering the space. As I put my wand into the ground I got the distinct knowing that on the next day, when I was to take Paloma Blanca, that this is where I had to come...into this hole like womb and sit there...My first response. was......"OH SHIT" are you kidding!!!!!" "I have to sit here down in that womb like hole with all the criters.???"......"oh shit...shit...shit. How am I going to do this??"
I felt that my next step was to make my way down to the pool of the sacred waters and soak in that absolutely magical, soft, healing energy and cleanse and prepare.
Day 3....Paloma Blanca Day
I woke up with bronchitis. The rain brought in much cooler weather and also huge humidity. Between being hot, cold, clothes damp all the time, jumping into the water, I got sick. "Oh Shit!!!! … But I HAVE TO DO THIS!"…, was my second thought. So, I got ready, knowing that the first 2 hrs. of the journey I would have to be in my room, close to the bathroom, as now I just mainly throw up, feel like shit and then after 2 hrs. I am present again. Of course, after I had thrown up and felt like shit, comfortable on my bed, a huge KNOWING enveloped me. I KNEW that Jose is getting ready to leave this plane and that realization surprisingly brought up a HUGE WAVE of grief and sadness. I was facing the end of our 50 yrs. together and all that has been my life in Mexico. My whole life up to then was passing away. It came to me that maybe my life had completed. Maybe going to the Mother Ceiba tree would be my "beam me up Scottie moment." I had to sit with this awhile…. When I felt empty enough, I was ready to let go. Whatever happened at the Ceiba tree, would be what it would be. I prepared again, taking my yoga mat and a big blanket from the hotel, my water and my courage and set off again on the path. When I got to the temple, I saw a path that looked easier than the ones I had been on before. I started climbing, slowly, with my trusty walking stick and for a bit is was easier till I neared the top, which turned out to be quite steep. I had to pull myself up to the top by grabbing the roots that stuck out from the stones......." OK, made it."…I approached the Mother Tree and put my yoga mat and blanket into the womb hole. I was definitely sitting in a weird position with my butt on the blanket, my back against her trunk and my feet sticking up to the level of my head. I was like a wedge. wedged into her womb where heaven and earth joined. . I could feel the subtle energy of the tree and the softness and gentleness was amazing. It was sooooooo comforting and I wondered why I had been afraid? I was very present., I felt so held. Maybe 2 hours had passed when I realized that I didn't have my "beem me up Scoutie moment and I was still here. My body was starting to ache from this bizarre position I was in. I had no visions, few thoughts and mainly just had the felt experience of my back being supported by her trunk and the softness of being held in her giant arms. She is so tall. As I said, I couldn't see the top of her, which means she is also soooo tall underneath. In this soft, subtle, blissful experience, I only heard one word .......the ONE WORD was....................................
(definition of ordained on google...make someone a priest or minister, confer holy orders on)
The way I receive my messages in downloads or dreams is usually just one word .It then takes me years to unpack the meaning because there are soooooo many layers to that one word. As I write to you a month later I am not really sure what this means..
Sixteen years ago the Divine Mother gave me 3 instructions about where to start my quest and then a week later I had a dream. She came to me and said, "You have the experience, now you just need the certificate" I am pretty sure I am now an official “Palomablancera” and a certified midwife for the Divine Mother.
If I had known that it would take 16 yrs. plus 7 prep years, which equals 22 yrs. of training, I would have said "No way Jose!!" But, of course THEY tell you shit and you just have to keep walking in the unknown, without a map, and just keep going. I am hearing, "Only the Heart Knows The Way"
Would I change this 22yr shamanic journey following the Call, NO!.... but I must say it has not been easy. Sixteen years ago I committed reluctantly. Now I am dedicated, devoted and fully committed to being in HER service and with mucho gusto!!!!!!!!!
I truly want to thank each of you for coming into my life. Each of you are carrying a tiny spark of Paloma Blanca in your hearts. She said she wanted to travel the world and she actually is, through each of you.
I signed off now with this decree…
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE……………CELEBRATE EVERYTHING!!!!!!
Dear Christina, When I looked for a photo of the Ceiba Tree I found this one with the incredible waving roots. Makes sense what you have shared. You are a Artist and woman who has lovingly shared
Paloma Blanca with many. And I know we all hold you in a special part of our Merkaba. I appreciate all that I learned from you and feel the expansion everyday of love and wisdom as well as the “slap-down”.
You are A Full Blown Shamanista, or as you say, A Palomablancacera. I loved reading about your experience, it was so interesting and well composed so that it felt like I was riding alongside. Thank you for sharing.
May you be open to all the blessings that are being sent to you. (I loved the photo of you and the one of your shoes.😂).
Much Love, 🙏 BonitA
