It was a wonderful opportunity to share these teachings with tribes from all over the world. I look forward to more collaborations in the future.

Read about what you can do to help manifest money this New Moon 🍊

Because of the number 8, this is the sign of infinity. A large loop narrowing to another large loop. The ebb and flow of life, positive and negative, comes in and then goes away.

That’s why this month you must be careful with your money. You will notice that money seems to slip through your fingers this month.

But the New Moon is coming up. This is a good time to manifest money! My Students, remember what we said,
Set your Intention?!! Why do you want this money?

Fill a mixing bowl halfway with warm tap water. Get nine oranges and cut them into nine slices each. When done, you should have 81 rounds. Place them in the warm water, stir and massage them and set your intention. Remove the oranges for later. Starting at the front door, walk clockwise to each room sprinkling the water. Make sure you put some under the beds, in closets, and in corners. As you are walking, think of your intention. Leave your windows open if you can. Put the oranges on a plate and leave them on your dining table to dry out then discard.

Much Wealth to All!

YATAAHEY (Good Day),

May 26, 2021 is the day of a powerful transition, the powerful Super Flower Blood Moon Eclipse. This eclipse will be the start of 4 more big lunar eclipses over the next two years. The next one will be November 18/19 of this year.

Many tribes call this moon the Flower moon because it’s the first full moon in the month of May when most flowers are blooming. It is also called Blood moon because when the earth is directly between the sun and the moon, the moon with have a red glow.

In the Toltec teachings, in this time frame, Humanity has been going through the Underworld (periods of darkness). The obstacles of our times can be seen in weather changes, the rise of poverty, and a pandemic. But a shift is starting with May 26th, and the next one will be in November 2026. This current shift is about our personal growth. We were forced to be separated from everyone so we would go inside of ourselves for spiritual growth.

A man name Magana said “Some people refuse to change." These are people who can’t overcome their fears and would rather cling to an unworkable system or sit in front of their TV set until things are back to the way they were before. But everything has changed, our eyes are open and we are not afraid to speak. We have had the time during this lockdown to see what it is we really want in life, and the beauty of life, and to see how important it is to care for ourselves. Enjoy the simple things, the sound of rain, meditation, prayer, family and friends.

For my students, remember if wanting protection during this time, wear your obsidian!

YATAAHEY (Good Day),

Coatlicue, the Aztec earth mother, was sweeping the temple floor and found a blue feather. She put this feather near her breast in prayer and this is how she became pregnant with the Boy Sun, Huitzilin, also the Nahual name of hummingbird. Huitzilin will be reborn on Dec 21st, the winter solstice. This is the longest evening because there is no sun, not until the 21st when Coatlicue gives birth.

In traditional ways, we are in darkness in the winter as the sun is dying, moving into the death realm. To prepare for the sun to be born on December 21st, we can take a traditional bath with ashes added to the water to remove everything, shed everything, you no longer need. What do you need to let go of before the sun is reborn? Wash it down with the ashes.

In my Apache teachings, this is a significant year for us as this is not your typical winter solstice. Two stars are coming together, Saturn and Jupiter, and they are in competition with the moon. They are telling us that we are now shifting into the power of the people, particularly our women. We've already started to see this influence. We saw it in our elections, the people spoke out, “we need change”. We are moving into the new beginnings of women’s voices and indigenous people’s voices. Be prepared for these changes and the work coming up in 2021.

Aho,
Marika
