Munay Ki rites

About Munay Ki – The Rites of Love and Power

The Munay Ki are nine rites of initiation based on the practices of the shamans of the Andes and the Amazon. It is believed that their origin lies in the Hindus Valley and that they have been brought over to the Americas by the Shamans of Siberia as they have travelled across the Bering Straits from Siberia to the Americas during the glacial period about 30,000 years ago.

The rites are energetic transmissions that work at the level of our Luminous Energy Field to heal our past wounds that may come from our genetic and karmic inheritance. They transform and upgrade our luminous energy field and re-inform our DNA, enabling us to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently.   

These rites have been shared by the Laika, the medicine men and women of the Q’ero the tribes of the high Andes and direct descendants of the Incas who have guarded these rites since the time of the conquistadors. The rites have been brought to the West by Dr. Alberto Villoldo, a medical anthropologist who has worked extensively with the shamans of the Amazon and Andes

The Q’ero have released these rites to the West in preparation for the fulfilment of a sacred prophecy they have preserved for the last 500 years. They speak of a great change in which the world would be turned right side up, harmony and order would be restored, and chaos and disorder ended. They foretell of a new human appearing on the planet, the Homo luminous, a human of wisdom and power who is free of fear. By receiving these rites we prepare our luminous field for this period of great transformation.

In the Quechua language, “Munay” means universal love. “Ki” is the Japanese word for energy. Together, these words mean energy of love.  

The rites

Rite One: Healer's Rite

The healer’s rite starts your healing process at the energetical level. It gifts you the power to manifest, the power to love and the power of vision or clarity. This rite is gifted into your hands. It awakens your ability to heal so that as you heal you are also able to bring healing to others.

This rite also connects you to a lineage of luminous healers from the past to assist you in your personal transformation, awakening your healing power

Rite Two: Bands of Power

This rite provides an essential protection at the level of your luminous energy field. Five energy belts are woven into your luminous energy field (LEF) for protection. They act as filters, breaking down any negative energies that come toward you into one of the five elements, earth, air, fire, water and light.  Once these energetic protections are woven into your field you can begin to let go of the psychological protections and amours you may have created that keep you from experiencing life at it’s fullest. You will begin to live your life in safety and with grace and step fully into who you came here to be.

Each of these bands represents one element: 

First Band - BLACK  - Represents the dark earth, the deep dark feminine. Allow the darkness of the earth, the blackness to hold you. Plant here all the seeds of your becoming. Know that this black band will nourish and hold you, just as the dark earth holds us and nurtures us. Allow the seeds of your becoming to settle here, to feel safe and held in the darkness until it’s time for them to manifest in the world.    

Second Band - RED - Represents the blood of the Mother, the waters of the Earth, the seas, the rivers, the streams, the rain and all that flows. Know that this band will feed and water the seeds of your becoming. Feel how the blood and waters of the Mother flow within your own body, and become aware of how the life blood nourishes you so that your seeds begin to grow.

Third Band - GOLD - Represents the warmth of the Sun. Feel this band of sunlight, the rays of the sun, feel how the warmth nurtures you, allow your body to absorb the warm rays of the sun so that your seeds grow strong, rooted in the dark earth, growing strong stems as they reach towards the light.

Fourth band - SILVER - Represents the moon at night that holds you and keeps you safe while you sleep. Allow yourself to connect often with your star brothers and sisters, know that they hold you and offer you their protection and guidance. This band also connects you to the wind that gently blows the seeds that you have grown out into the world, so that you can step into your becoming fearlessly and powerfully. Know that the world waits for you to take your unique place within it.    

Fifth Band - WHITE – Represents the white of the snow–capped mountains we can only dare to dream of. It symbolizes the white light of spirit and the wisdom that comes direct from spirit. Allow yourself to source directly from here so that you drink only from the joy and beauty of life.  Finally, from your the crown of your head a rainbow fountain of light cascades out and pours down over each of those bands, the white band of spirit, the silver band of the moon and the wind, the golden band of the sun, the red band of the waters, and the black band of the earth. This new luminous cocoon keeps you safe.

Rite Three: Harmony Rite

This rite is a transmission of seven archetypical energies into the Chakras. First you receive the four organizing principles of creations into your lower chakras: the archetypes of serpent (connects you to earth, the feminine, the mother), jaguar (connects you to all living things), hummingbird (connects you to the joy of life) and eagle (connects you to your true purpose). Next, you receive three archangels, luminous beings and protectors, into your three upper chakras: the Keeper of the Lower World (brings harmony and peace to your unconscious), the Keeper of the Middle World (brings order into your day to day life), and the Protector of the Upper World (our super-conscious, connects you to who you are becoming).  The seeds of these archetypical energies that you receive will begin to metabolize and neutralize the heavy energies and residues of trauma you may be carrying in your chakras and will gradually align your life to create inner balance.

Rite Four: Seer's Rite

The Seers rite helps you see the world through new eyes.
 Our eyes are hard wired to only see what everyone else sees. We collude and agree together about what we see. And we tend to believe only what we see.  These rites weave a crown of light and sight, connecting the visual cortex with the third eye and heart chakra. This awakens the inner seer and your ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and Spirit, to see the mystery, the shadows. You will learn to see what you believe instead of believing only what you see. The crown of light and sight is tied to a necklace of light that allows you to see through the eyes of the heart, as you were always meant to see.

Rite Five: Daykeeper’s Rite

This rite re-establishes your relationship to the earth and to the archetypical energy of the mother. It allows you to connect to a lineage of master healers from ancient times. Daykeepers were the healers, the midwifes, the herbalists, the keepers of the ancient stone altars of Machu Pichu, Stonehenge and other power places on the planet. They gave voice to the earth, the animals the corps and the elements and praised the sun to rise every morning.    

These rites connect you to a lineage of luminous beings from the past, the Daykeepers, the protectors of the Mother Earth, the stewards of the feminine  When you receive these rites you start to heal your inner feminine, step beyond fear, and practice peace. You can call on ancient altars to heal and bring balance to the earth. You begin to love in harmony with mother Earth. Mythically these rites take you back to the Garden of Eden and put you in touch with that part of you that always walks in beauty on the earth. 

Rite Six: Wisdomkeeper’s Rite
This rite re-establishes your relationship to the heavens and to the father. It connects you to the peaks of the mountains that have been revered as places of power, places where man meets God.  These rites connect you to a lineage of luminous beings from the past and the future who have stepped outside of time. The Wisdomkeepers are the protectors of the ancient teachings; they keep them safe and share them with others when appropriate.  This rite helps you to begin to heal your inner masculine, step outside of time, and taste infinity. You begin to act in service of this planet, in service to all. You grow into a steward of the ancient wisdom, of stories that speak of our human condition, and share them with others not from a place of ego but from a place of service.

Rite Seven: Earthkeeper’s Rite
This rite connects you to the archangels that are guardians of our solar system, the stewards of all life on Earth. It lifts you from your earth-bound existence and sets your spirit free to begin your journey to the stars -beginning with the sun, our local star- so you may dream your world into being.  Once you receive this rite, you come under the protection of these archangels and you can summon their assistance to bring balance and healing to any situation. You have stewardship of all life on this planet and you understand the impact of every action and every thought. You will begin to grow a new body that heals differently, ages differently and eventually dies differently. As an Earthkeeper you have a direct connection to the stars. Your main task is to dream a new world, to mediate with the word of our becoming, to bring the un-manifested into form.

Rite Eight: Starkeeper’s Rite
This rite anchors you into the time to come. Once you receive this rite you become a steward of the time to come and all future generations, our children’s children.  This rite helps your physical body to evolve into Homo Luminous; the aging process is slowed down, your DNA is re-informed, and you become more resistant to disease. You accept the seat around a holy fire at the centre of the Sun, a place that has been held for you since the beginning of time.  This rite gives you a chance to re-birth yourself, not from the place of your past stories but from the place of who you are becoming 10,000 years from now, allowing this new story to inform you.

Rite Nine: Creator Rite
This rite was previously transmitted rarely and only directly from Spirit to humans. In the summer of 2006 the rite was gifted to the Inca elders in the Andes enabling the transmission from human to human.  Once we have received all these initiations we are ready to accept our God-like nature. We are and have always been the creators of our world. This rite awakens the Creator powers within us and brings stewardship for all creation on this planet and beyond. You discover that Spirit not only works through you but AS YOU and all of creation is happening inside you. Upon receiving this rite you will start to create consciously, from a place of loving compassion to all creation. You become the myth-maker and the story teller who dreams all creation into being. The God creator rites allow us to become a pure vessel for Spirit, to take the pure energy of the un-manifested world and create the manifested world according to our beliefs.  With this rite comes a huge responsibility to hold the world as healed, and to envision a world that we would want our children and our children’s children to inherit.
