I love confirmation.... NOW.... I know why I like to stop the boat in the middle of Lake Atitlan to meditate!
I feel that the energy there is quite special, but didn't know why.
Now we do. I know this is why I wanted to go back to Lake Atitlan last year!
Divers search Mayan Ruins Submerged in Guatemalan Lake
Posted By Sara-Lise Haith http://gear.deeperblue.net/newsfull.php/2111
ABC News: Scuba divers are exploring the depths of a volcanic lake in Guatemala to find clues about an ancient sacred island where Mayan pilgrims flocked to worship before it was submerged by rising waters. The Maya built soaring
pyramids and elaborate palaces in Central America and southern Mexico before mysteriously abandoning their cities around 900 A.D. Samabaj, the first underwater archaeological ruins excavated in Guatemala, were discovered accidentally 12 years ago by a diver exploring picturesque Lake Atitlan, ringed
by Mayan villages and popular with foreign tourists. Roberto Samayoa, a businessman and recreational diver who grew up near the lake has dived in it for years.
He says in a newspaper report that he would often find pieces of pottery from the Mayan pre-classic period. In 1996, he found the site, with parts of buildings and huge ceremonial stones, known as stelae, clearly visible. He named it Samabaj,
after himself, but only in the past year have professional archaeologists taken an interest, mapping the 4,300-square-foot (400-square-meter) area with sonar technology and excavating structures on a raised part of the lake bed. Researchers believe this area, 50 feet below the lake's surface, was once an island until a catastrophic event, like a volcanic eruption or landslide, raised water levels. The rising lake drowned the buildings around 250 A.D., before the height of the Mayan empire, and ceramics found intact there suggest the inhabitants left in a hurry..Very few left...Arte Maya 2010 Calendar with Paintings by Maya Village Artistshttp://www.kachina.net/~alunajoy/books.html.Only 2 days left for a chance to helpSupport Casa de Milagros Peru

Our Dear Brother David from New Zealand,and self professed Maya Lands Jungle Junkie writes beautiful poetry to keep himself in the energy of the Maya Lands while being in the world. I wanted to share this one with you.
STANDING in the LIGHT
In fields of flowers
wonder and beauty
In the dancing sunlight.
In the hearts and minds
of the townsfolk
who stroll these pathways
Lies the emerging will and way
To open unto Light
Rise up and hear the call
to know and serve.
We grow together as one
Sacred Earth Mother
And all her children
Nurtured through aeons of change
To this awakening.
In the heart of the Heavens
And the heart of the Earth
We come to our Centre
Awake, aware, open and ready
To receive, to know, to do and be
At one with all that arises.
As we walk together
Through our ways and days
We bring Light to share
And spread around in dark places.
We heal ourselves, and each other,
As we heal the land.
Whisperings of Spirit
We hear your call
We, guardians of Light,
Will take our stand.
It is time to walk tall
And softly on the land.Only a few spots left in our next maya pilgrimage. http://www.kachina.net/~alunajoy/mayatour.html
