Happy New Year to everyone. We hope 2011 brings you all that you desire.
We have received many questions about Ken's trip to the Yucatan with his uncle, Drunvalo. As many know, Drunvalo's book 'The Serpent of Light' talks about their joint adventures in 1985. Ken's recounting of the trip was written in October 2001 and has been one of the newsletters archived on this website.
A STORY FROM KEN
At this time of recovery for all of us, I thought it would be good to share with you an old adventure of mine. This story happened to me in 1985 and was my first spiritual journey. It took place in the Yucatan with my uncle, Drunvalo Melchizedek. When we returned in 1985, I taped the entire experience onto cassettes. It took ten years before the tapes were fully transcribed.
My thanks to Shirley Ann Holly for finally putting my story on paper and adding the details about the sacred sites.
I hope you enjoy this story and that it will help you reflect upon your own spiritual journeys.
THE YUCATAN CONNECTION
KEN'S FIRST SPRIRITUAL JOURNEY
— As told by Shirley Ann Holly (from Ken's 1985 taped recordings)
Ken's uncle, Drunvalo Melchizedek, called him in mid 1985 at a time when Ken was on his own path. Ken had been developing a hologram company to make religious figures, knowing that the holograms would open up both sides of the brain simultaneously. Ken had also been involved with the Taos Pueblo Indians and reservation since he was about ten years old. So when Drunvalo contacted him, Ken had the sense that this trip would be important for him. At the time of the call, Ken was living in Clear Lake, California which was significant to Ken's journey..
Drunvalo said that his guidance had directed him to collect a group of crystals and take them to different pyramid sites located in the Yucatan area of Mexico and Guatemala. Drunvalo wanted to know if Ken would go along. This was different from anything Ken was doing at the time, and he agreed to go on the trip. In fact the importance he felt compelled him to go. Ken asked for more details and this is what Drunvalo said:.
Drunvalo had been asked to visit specific pyramids in Mexico and Guatemala and leave a series of specific crystals at those locations. Information about the crystals had been given, including size, kind, color, and caliber. In order to ensure that he had the perfect crystals for the trip, Drunvalo asked his friend, Katarina Raphael to choose the crystals for each specific site. The crystals were chosen to closely match the common colors of the recognized chakra points of the human auric field.
This is what Katarina chose:
Uxmal - Black Tourmaline
Labna - Carnelean
Kabak - Gold Calcite
ChichenItza - Green Adventurine
Tulum - Blue Lace Agate
Kohunlich - Purple Flourite
Palenque - Amethyst
Tikal - Kunzite
Katarina would later receive additional information and write books on crystals and crystal healing.
The journey itself had also been clearly defined. Beginning at Uxmal, Mexico, the sites had to be visited in a particular order plotted along the course of a fibronachi spiral. The order of sites were Uxmal, Labna, Kabah, Chichen Itza, Tulum, Kohunlich, Palenque, and Tikal. At the time, Ken wasn't consciously aware that he was going on anything other than an exciting trip with his uncle. He did, however, feel that the trip would be important for him, too. Making definite plans to meet Drunvalo in about three weeks, Ken set about to get everything ready.
It was also during this time that Ken received his next clue about the mysterious agreement that his Taos Indian friends had entrusted to him when he was younger. He had gone into Oakland to work as usual, but had been unable to park in his regular lot as it was full. He found a spot on the street close to his office and went through the day as usual. Upon returning to his car at the end of a long and tiring day, he saw a ticket on his front windshield. Disbelieving, as there were no restricting hours posted along the street, Ken stepped up to yank the ticket off his car. Turning over the ticket, this is what he read:
Stay focused and in your own space, even if you are in unfamiliar places.
Staying focused will be your ticket into new worlds.
Ken looked over his shoulder as if the writer of the note would still be lurking around. It felt a little spooky, but maybe it was just the harmless prank of one of his spiritual ancestors. Stuffing the ticket into his pocket, Ken didnt really know what it meant or how to use it. Furthermore, he couldn't even begin to imagine why or how it came to be on his car. Still pondering the message, he drove towards his home in Clearlake. Because he was scheduled to leave soon on his trip with Drunvalo, he had already decided to stop at a special shop along the route.
