Based on initiatory practices of the Q’ero medicine people of the Andes, The Munay-Ki are a series of nine karpays (rites of initiation) to become a person of wisdom and power. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past – the genetic and karmic inheritance we are born with. They transform and upgrade the energy body and re-inform our DNA, enabling us to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently.
There are many different karpays in the Andean tradition and the Munay-Ki were the first to be shared and adapted to the West. The transmissions themselves are thousands of years old and have been given to ancient teachers by our luminous ancestors who are the medicine people who work from the spirit world – humans who rose to the level of angels. Some are in bodies, some are in spirit form, but all have a mandate to protect those who are looking after the well-being of the planet. The Buddhists call them Bodhisattvas. They are the finest spiritual allies anyone can have, and they provide us with knowledge on how one becomes an angel. This is what the prophecies of the Laika mean when they tell us that we have the potential to become Homo luminous – We can develop the energy fields of angels within our lifetime. The Munay-Ki offers us the energetic keys to do this and are now are passed on from teacher to student in the form of seeds that will need to be tended to in order to grow. Once these seeds are gifted to you by another, it is up to you to grow them into fruit-bearing trees. As you receive and gift these rites, you will sense the presence of the lineage with you. In essence, the rites are about stewardship to the Earth. They are not ego-awards or recognition of any kind of achievement, nor do they make anyone special. On the contrary, they make one uniquely unimportant. Only then, from a position of no-ego, can we truly be of service.
The rites that you will receive:
The Foundation Rites:
The Healers Rite – known as the Hampe blessing and comes from the highland Q’ero people. This rite connects you to a lineage of ancient healers and Shamans from the past. These beings work with you to heal yourself and others.
The Bands of Power – five luminous energy belts are woven into your energy field for protection. These act as a filter to break down any heavy energy and transform them into light to nourish the energy field.
The Harmony Rite – comes from the lowland Q’ero, the Huachipayre people from the edge of the Amazon. This rite connects you to the seven archetypal healers that encourage and assist you along your healing path. These are seeds that are placed in each chakra and assist with the clearing of heavy energies.
The Seers Rite – practiced in many different forms among the North Coast peoples of Peru, (the descendants of the Chimu and Moche cultures), and by the seers and trackers of the Amazon. This rite awakens the inner seer by forming extra pathways of light that connect to the visual cortex of the brain. This enhances your ability to see beyond the literal level and into the invisible world of energy.
The Lineage Rites:
The Day Keepers Rite – known among the Q’ero as the Pampamesayok, referring to the lowlands and valleys of the ‘pampa’, and to the mesa or altar. This rite connects you to a lineage of Laika Master Healers from the past. These beings were traditionally medicine women, midwives and herbalists. These represent and connect you to the divine feminine.
The Wisdom Keepers Rite – known among the Q’ero as the Altomesayok rite, referring to the high mountains of the Andes. Don Manuel Quispe was the last great Altomesayok of Q’ero. This rite connects you to a lineage of luminous warriors and medicine men and women from the past and future. These represent and connect you to your inner masculine.
The Earth Keepers Rite – known among the Q’ero as the Kurak Akuyek rite, referring to the elder who ‘masticates’ the wisdom to nurture the young ones who follow. This rite connects you to a lineage of archangels and guardians of the galaxies and our solar system. This rite is about stewardship to the earth and will set your spirit free.
The Rites Of Time To Come:
The Star Keepers Rite – known as the Mosoq Karpay, which means the ‘new rite’ in the Qechua language. This rite announces and prepares one for the ‘time to come.’ The structure of Inca cosmology goes from the Earth (Pachamama) to the Mountains (Apu) to the Stars. This rite is known for re-coding your DNA, slowing down the aging process and allowing you to become more resilient to disease and decay.
