SANTA TIERRA FOR MARAS DELIVERS ON A PROMISE SHE MADE 5.5 YEARS AGO – A CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM THE SPIRIT REALM

Seen anywhere else in the world, Maras would seem like a place from Mars.  Desolate.  Dusty. Or muddy, depending on the season. But looks can be deceiving.  Especially in the Andes. This tiny village on the high plains above the Sacred Valley of the Incas is actually a holy place.

Maras June 2009Maras is where this writer first encountered the winged mountain spirits of the Andes – the Apus, as the locals call them in Quechua language. And the Santa Tierras – the feminine earth spirits. A group of western and local shamans spent hours talking to these amazing spirits (see The Altomesayok Journey: On the Angels’ Trail, June 2009).

Bob-Shaman-July-2008I mean,  literally talking! The spirits spoke in Spanish or Quechua. We used English. Jose Luis, a local shaman who organized these sessions, acted as an interpreter.

These conversations changed my life. Also literally.  Shortly after the first such encounter in July 2008, I started to make plans to move from Arizona to Hawaii.

So what brought this up again today?

A CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM THE SPIRIT REALM

I got an email this morning from the Andean Research Institute, or ARI, a non-profit humanitarian organization based in Maras that Jose Luis had set up.  Here’s what it said (you can read more below):

Wonderful news – we’ve struck water!
Yes, Pachamama (Mother Earth) has blessed us with our first access to water at our center in Maras.

That’s a huge deal for Maras. Because a lack of water has always hampered the operation of this project whose purpose is to help the local population while at the same time allowing the Apus and Santa Tierras to transfer celestial technologies and wisdom of the Spirit realm to select shamans incarnated at the present time.

In fact, I recalled a conversation we had with the Apus and Santa Tierras on June 8, 2009 after the completion of the challenging Altomesayok Journey: On the Angels’ Trail. Following up on the guidance we received from Apu Huascaran, the Santa Tierra for Maras made the following promise:

Water in Maras. Santa Tierra for Maras said that we should place our offerings in the four corners or the property. “And then we’ll see what we can do to help,” she added.

And now she has delivered on it.  So I made another donation this morning to the ARI non-profit fund as part of my “365 days/year Christmas” philosophy. If you feel so inclined, I invite you to also do the same.  Just click on the link below:

Striking water Maras

Wonderful news – we’ve struck water!
Yes, Pachamama has blessed us with our first access to water at our center in Maras.
Thanks to individual charitable giving and many hours of hard work on the part of volunteers, ARI has sunk a well to provide the first running water to our Center. It will nourish our program participants as well as our volunteers, who come thousands of miles to teach our programs.
More wonderful news
The water is fresh, and we’re deeply grateful for this. We had been concerned that the natural salt mines surrounding Maras might have made the water undrinkable. We see this clear fresh water source as another gift from the earth, one for which we must continue to nurture and extend ayni. We’ll do this, with your help, by expanding the water system.
