  1. The computer gremlin erased the previous post for me, jajaja! Our Maya-Atlantis Tour group went to Chichen Itza at dawn on March 21, Spring Equinox which is a big day in Mexico for many traditional pre-hispanic-spiritual people. It is not only the first day of Spring (which is almost a moot point in the lovely climate of most of Mexico) but both equinoxes are the halfway points between winter and summer solstices, meaning that the amount of daylight and dark are equal. On a higher plane, it is a point of balance of many universal energies, a good time to connect with the higher realms. Balance is the key to harmony. So this particular day attracts thousands of visitors to Chichen Itza to see a unique pattern of sunlight between 4-5pm which casts a shadow on the edges of the "steps" of the pyramid which creates an image of the Plumed Serpent (Kul Kul Kan in Mayan or Quezalcoatl) whose sculptured head is at the bottom of the "stairs". The huge crowd was divided into trendy, noisy young people, almost giving an ambience of a rock concert without the bands. Lots of yelling. The other types were mostly dressed in white, there for the spiritual significance of the day. Personally, I would suggest going there on the 22nd, you could see the same shadow without all the crowds. The shadow of the sun only moves about 1 inch per day, I don't think that would be noticeable on a huge pyramid. We had time early in the cool, fresh morning to look around the huge complex with many buildings, one of which had an observatory (!). It was a long but great day! All of these pyramid sites were once large thriving communities. On another day, we went to a lesser known site called Ek Balam where the traditional elders told of "visitors from the stars" at this special place of the Jaguar-Star Maya Ceremonial Center." The theme of connection to "star beings" is woven through all Maya traditions that have been handed down through the families from the elders. The academics who dig up ruins and try to interpret the meanings of the picto-graph stellae are mostly only guessing. Much of Mayan cosmology just doesn't translate into modern languages which don't already have these concepts and words. Later that day, we went swimming in a cenote, which is a large underground cavern with fresh, cool water flowing from streams above or underground, depending. They are found all over the Yucatan. Most are very deep, and some are so deep that modern radar equipment can't find the bottom. Some are connected to others by underground streams which can be navigated by swimming with scuba equipment. The water was blissfully cool after a day in the hot Yucatan. The place we went to was open to the public with wooden stairs leading down the steep sides to the water. All were required to wear sturdy life jackets because once you step into the water there is no touching the bottom. A couple of people on the tour had waterproof cameras with them but have not sent me their footage. I swam but had to take fotos from the sidelines. Our guide said that the cenotes contain minerals from outer space after a large meteor crashed in the area hundreds of thousands of years ago. I knew I felt very far out when I got out of that water! Check out my UTube channel for videos of local Ajijic fiestas as well as my travels in many places around Mexico, going back to 2016.
  2. It was with a Tour Group from https://casakin.org/ They organize tours of spiritually significant locations in Yucatan that combine travel with meditations, ceremonies, and teachings. Great hotels and food as well. It was a much younger group than the tours organized out of Ajijic. I was the Elder! The Maya were known for their brilliance at mathematics and astronomy. They had/have 17 calendars which measure different things. They knew that on Dec. 21, 2012 there were powerful astronomical alignments which portended the ends of a 5,125, a 10,000, and a 26,000 yr. cycle. You might ponder how they knew what was going on 26,000 years ago without all of our "modern science." That famous date was the end of these calendars. The Maya never said the world was going to end on that date. This tour focused on the connection between the lost continent of Atlantis and the Maya culture.
  3. What we all noticed very obviously was the weird echo reaction there. When someone would clap loudly near the big pyramid, the echo sounded like a completely different thing, like a bird call. That seems to indicate an energy vortex. I understand there is also one near Ocatlan, can't remember the name of that place... - Tono Focal? There is also one on a private property in Ajijic where I went to a Full Moon ceremony. You make a loud sound which echos, but the echo sounds nothing like the original sound, more like an electric sound effect. But, yes, if you are tuned in, you can feel the energy fields at the pyramids.
  4. Hola! I would like to share my travel videos of a tour I recently went on which included a Mayan spiritual guide to fill us in on the more esoteric aspects of the Mayan pyramids that are not easily accessed by conventional academic knowledge which mostly consists of academics digging up and trying to understand ancient ruins often quite out of context. The Maya did not die out, there are millions of living Maya descendants and there are lineages who have kept the cultural wisdom intact. That is also how the danzantes learn their art and how to make their costumes, and the significance of it all. I've talked to several of them directly about that. Mayan Cosmology is multi-dimensional, consistent with Quantum Physics which is barely known by the modern masses. There are living Maya descendants who know what all the "mysterious" picto-graphs really refer to. All in all, a fascinating trip on all levels! Mostly young people, too, what a change from the Lake Chapala gringo scene. All the pyramids were resonant to ultra-high frequencies and all the pyramids of the world resonate with eachother. Uxmal is a large site so I had to make 2 videos! In all the archaeological sites I have visited, they say that what we see today is but a tiny percentage of what is really there, still unexcavated. These sites were once thriving large, advanced cities with highly educated and conscious people. The Spanish Invasion destroyed a lot of all pre-hispanic culture in Mexico, but through the strength of the family bonds and lineages, some truths have been passed down. Here is my 2nd video slideshow of Uxmal:
  5. I give my old newspapers to various ceramic vendors around Ajijic. They can use the paper for packing their wares and are very glad to get it. Sometimes I give to neighbors for them to use for their bird cages. Lots of Mexicans never buy periodicals so they really can use this stuff.
  6. The thread regarding a medical emergency of the family of the owners of this shop was closed before I could post this question there. Where exactly is this shop? Muchisimas gracais!
  7. Funny, but I tried to post the link to my new video plus a link to an older one with some of the same danzantes in San Cristobal and even that is not going through after 2 hours. WTF is up??? My current upload speed is 489 KBPS, 71% faster than my average speed, 87% slower than my host average @ 3.6.
  8. I have always been drawn to the pre-hispanic cultures ever since I moved here almost 12 years ago. The Sangre Viva (Living Blood) Fiesta is my favorite cultural event here. It celebrates pre-hispanic danza and music with performers from around Mexico. I became friends with the lead danzante of this group because I filmed them 2 years ago in San Cristobal, where this group, Ce-Ollin, is from. Last next year I saw him at the Sangre Viva fiesta here because I recognized their unique costumes. We made friends, and when I returned to San Cristobal last year, he came up to me in the street but I didn't recognize him because I had never seen him without his face paint and costumes! He/they travel around Mexico a lot. I was a dancer and took a lot of classes in African and Brazilian dance so the Danzantes of Mexico resonate very deeply with me, i LOVE dancing to live drummers. And i LOVE the vivid colors of the splendid costumes of the danzantes, how cool can you get? Here is the video I took 2 years ago with Sergio, the lead dancer in the San Cristobal Plaza: I hope all this comes out OK...
  9. OK, so my telcel problem is kinda sorta OK... Next problem, jaja.. I was just trying to upload my newest video of Danzantes Ce-Ollin at the Sangre Viva Fiesta this past weekend in Ajijic, great show, well attended. Lots of action, about 7 minutes of action video plus a couple minutes of still fotos in this video which I will post on another thread. Yesterday I tried to upload the separate videos & fotos to FB ,was fine for a while and then stalled out completely after several hours. So I created my "movie"(on MOV) format to upload to Utube. It usually takes me about 1 hr. per minute to upload action videos (as opposed to foto slideshows which go much faster). It also got stuck for hours after 90% finished. Arrgghhhh!!! I tried the suggestions given my Utube and checked my upload speed which was very slow... 63% slower than MY average, around 90% slower than most of MX. I also recreated my video with less resolution. I have the Telmex Medium plan for about $600/mo. It uploaded much faster but the colors are a little washed out to my eyes. I prefer the vivid colors. Questions: Should I even bother to notify Telmex when my upload speed is way too slow? I notice this in the middle of the night sometime. How do you reach them now? Or should I just change the settings on my videos to allow for faster upload but less color? My videos are my favorite hobby now, and my local fiesta videos get hundreds of views, much more than my travel foto slideshows. Gracias!!
  10. I just tried that # after going to the print shop to print out my document and return home. that is a wrong # ! But, by cosmic synchronicity, I ran into a friend (while walking back from the print shop) that was familiar with that notary and recommended him and confirmed the general location. A Mexicana recommended a couple others in Chapala. So I will wing it with a taxi, I think I know where you are talking about, just above Century 21 Real estate, no? Gracias!
  11. I don't have a car so I was hoping for Ajijic. I re-confirmed that the Notary only needs to have the official stamp, nothing else needed. Gracias!
  12. Very sorry to say, both of those were the stores that I dealt with. Did you all buy phones there or do you just go in to buy time?
  13. Gracias, this is the first thing that has made sense to me. I had a 1-yr. plan in the US and could forget about my phone but it always worked when I needed it. Silly me to think I could expect the same service here. Wouldn't the shop owners KNOW that they can't pay for 1 year? Why did they lead me to believe I was paid up for a year if you can't do that? So, in other words, even if you PAY up front for a year, you still have to go in every month to renew it??? Sounds crazy to me, they did not explain that. And the couple always have sort of a "fishy" vibe about them when I go in there, they did NOT explain to me that I need to come in every month. If I had known that I wouldn't have bought a 1 yr. plan. I did have 2-month saldos on my last phone. And they did tell me that "everyone" gets those saldo messages from Telmex even if they are paid up?? WTF???
  14. Gracias, Ferret. Of course I was assuming the notary would be Mexican since we are here in Mexico! All they have to do is witness my signing a simple document from PERS confirming that I am still alive, very simple, I already have the document. I have found that most professional Mexicans speak English, and I have already confirmed with PERS that a MX notary is OK. There is no one in Ajijic?
  15. Can anyone recommend a good licensed notary located in central Ajijic. I need to send an official document up north. Gracias.
