Grow Your Light Body with the Munay-Ki
We all have a light body . . .
People, plants, animals, stones and stars, we’re all made of energy. That energy is our life force and it can be perceived as solid physical mass, vibration and/or light. The Laika medicine people of the Peruvian Andes, as well as all other visionary medicine men and women across time, perceive not just our physical bodies, but also our energetic light bodies. To grow and refine these light bodies is the purpose of the Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki.
Universal human rites
I like to call them Human Rites. That is, they are luminous rites of passage for human beings who strive to attain their own luminous form and desire to share their luminosity for the greatest good of all creation. These rites, as I have received them, originate from the mountain and jungle regions of Peru. They are brought to the United States by Alberto Villoldo, PhD. More information on the Luminous Body and the Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki can be found on the Munay-Ki website, but I will share some of their information below.
Munay-Ki is a two-part Quechua word loosely translated as the Power of Love. The following are nine of the rites of the Munay-Ki:
Rite One: Healer’s Rite
Connects you to a lineage of luminous healers from the past to assist you in your personal transformation, awakening the healing power so that everyone you touch is blessed. We access tremendous spiritual assistance; ancient healers who help heal the wounds of the past and of our ancestors.
Rite Two: Bands of Power
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, feeding your LEF instead of allowing those energies to make you sick.
Rite Three: Harmony Rite
A transmission of the 7 Archetypes into the Chakras. First you receive the archetypes of serpent, jaguar, hummingbird and eagle; next you receive three archangels: the Keeper of the Lower World (our unconscious), the Keeper of the Middle World (our waking world), and the Protector of the Upper World (our super-conscious).
Rite Four: Seer’s Rite
Pathways of light connect 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.
Rite Five: Daykeeper’s Rite
You connect to a lineage of master healers from ancient times. Daykeepers can call on ancient altars to heal and bring balance to the earth, and on the sun to rise each day, bringing us into harmony with mother Earth. This rite helps you begin to heal your inner feminine, step beyond fear, and practice peace.
Rite Six: Wisdomkeeper’s Rite
You connect to a lineage of luminous beings from the past and the future. This rite helps you to begin to heal your inner masculine, step outside of time, and taste infinity.
Rite Seven: Earthkeeper’s Rite
This rite connects you to the archangels that are guardians of our solar system, 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.
Rite Eight: Starkeeper’s Rite
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 center of the Sun, a place that has been held for you since the beginning of time.
Rite Nine: Creator Rite
As it awakens the Creator-light within, this rite brings stewardship for all creation -from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of galaxies. Once you discover that Spirit not only works through you but AS YOU, and all of creation is happening inside you, the stewardship then becomes natural
Receiving the Rites
The Rites of the Munay-Ki are always received free of charge. They may be transmitted remotely, yet there is something special about sitting together in a ceremonial exchange. If you live well outside the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, you can find a nearby Munay-Ki Graduate here. If you are in the area, or up for a road-trip, the Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki will be offered throughout the year at public events and ceremonies hosted by Smiling Shaman. For dates of upcoming opportunities to receive the rites, check the Ceremonies page. If you simply must receive these rites from Smiling Shaman, and can not attend an event, please contact me.
