Munay Ki Archetypes: The Eagle/Condor

In North America it is the Eagle. In South America it is the Condor. But within the Rites, they represent the same archetype. Both of these birds are graceful in the sky, and proven to be deadly predators. But when you meditate with them, you find there is more to them than their hunting skills. Since I live in North America, I have meditated with the Eagle, and found some encouraging messages. To make hunting and flying easier, Eagles will fly during storms, using the wind p

Munay Ki Archetypes: The Hummingbird

To be honest, the Hummingbird was the most difficult archetype for me to connect to when I first received the Rites. But as I have worked to integrate the energy and information given to me, I come to find that this is one of the more visually pleasing of the archetypes. And that is simply because the Hummingbird surrounds itself in color. That is to say, it surrounds itself with a rainbow of flowers. For those that have read The Blue Flower, I am sure you realize what that h

The Munay Ki Archetypes: The Jaguar

After connecting to my Snake Archetype, the Jaguar was next to be meditated on. Right away I could feel the difference in almost every aspect. Physically I could feel the change in size, and the change in strength. The Jaguar demonstrates this strength in its ability to hunt and carry their prey back to their cubs. As the cubs get older, the Jaguar then demonstrates its mental capacities by teaching them how to do the same. This takes a lot of time and effort on both sides, s

Munay Ki Archetypes: The Snake

When you receive the Munay Ki Rites, you are connected to the world around you in many ways. One of these ways is through the Archetypes universally known to those who receive the rites. The first Archetype is the snake. It is not given a specific breed of snake, as all snakes are connected to this Archetype. For me, though, I always see it as a green Mojave Diamondback snake. And, like its appearance, the Snake Archetype connects in different ways for each person. To underst

Lessons in Munay Ki

Going through and receiving the Munay Ki rites was in itself a journey beloved. But the journey afterwards has brought about huge changes in my life, and continue to do so today. Even though the journey is not complete, I feel that now is the time to share what I have experienced so far. Before, I felt like the average person, going through the day-to-day grind of being a working mother. There were struggles, and sometimes it seemed I had more problems in my life than I had t

The First Dog

While I was cleaning around the house last week, my son had decided he wanted to watch Dreamworks' How To Train Your Dragon. When it had originally released, I had become a big fan of the movie and the sequel movies afterwards. So I allowed him to watch it, watching it myself as I continued to clean. And it was while watching this movie that something clicked in me. There were parts of the movie I found myself resonating with for some reason. It was while I was pondering this

The Metaphor in our Stories

We partake in the art of storytelling every day. Whether it's talking to some friends or watching a movie. Stories have been an integral piece of the puzzle, and how we have evolved into the species we are today. But why is that? You might ask. Well, if you look at the stories that have been told through millenniums, I think you could come to the same conclusions I have. In my experience, there are two reasons we tell our stories, whether true or fantastical. The first and pr

The Blue Flower

To begin with, I would like to thank each and every one of you who come to read my blog. It is truly inspiring to see that there are people out there willing to take the time to read these posts. With that said, this next post is a bit of a crazy story. You may believe me, or you may not, and I am okay with that. It starts in Colorado, where I took a vacation with Bryan to participate in a Plant Medicine Ceremony. We were the first to arrive at the home of Drew and Ela, who r

What Makes Crystals Special

I would like to begin with a quick apology for not posting this on Tuesday like I normally would have. To make a long story short we just finished transferring to a new computer. Over the past few weeks, I have been looking at each individual crystal and the details of what they do. Not only in general, but for me personally as well. And what I have looked at so far is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many different crystals out there, I am sure there are many I am n
