Wesak Full Moon group distant healing event


On a personal and collective level

6 May 2012

Linking with the 44th Full Moon sacred site attunement of the
Grand Maya Itza Council, to be focused on

Tazumel, El Salvador
- All are welcome to participate in this event -

All beings everywhere are invited to join us for this global distant healing event, starting at 5 pm GMT/UTC on Sunday, 6 May. To check the starting time in your part of the world, go to this link at the World Clock.

We will be linking with the 44th Full Moon sacred site attunement of the Grand Maya Itza Council for the Maya ruins of Tazumel, El Salvador (more info below).

This is a special event focusing on Abundance and a sense of sufficiency and well-being for the participants as individuals, as well as a sense of harmony and balance in terms of the available abundance and resources on a planetary level, for each living part of the Oneness shared by all.

The treatment process will be facilitated by Edna Spennato, located in Bahia, Brazil, with eight surrogates anchoring the healing energy and releasing unneeded energies in Brazil, South Africa, Ireland, Austria and the USA, on behalf of all the participants and the collective consciousness.

The event is also a fund-raiser to support the ongoing pro bono work being done by Earth Heal in Brazil, with injured and homeless animals and abandoned litters, and the distant healing work done for animals and for refugees, victims of war and disasters, and indigent, homeless or disadvantaged people. To make a donation to Earth Heal, please go to this link.

Participation in the event is open to anyone, anywhere in the world on a donation basis. Those who cannot afford a donation are included on a pro bono basis, and asked instead to give some bread or provide a meal to someone in your area who is hungry. In terms of being able to receive abundance on a personal level, it is important for us to be able to give as well, and to feel that we always do have something of value to give, not necessarily something with a monetary value.

To be included as a participant, please send your registration form to earthhealadmin at gmail dot com before midnight GMT/UTC on Saturday, 5 May 2012.

This weekend's supermoon

Photo by Tim McCord of the March 2011 supermoon rising
A supermoon occurs when the moon hits its full phase at the same time it makes closest approach to Earth for the month, a lunar milestone known as perigee. This Full Moon occurs at 03:35 GMT/UTC on Sunday, 6 May. This means that it will be magnificent on both Saturday and Sunday nights, the biggest Full Moon of the year, and about 16 percent brighter than average.

The moon will swing in 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet, offering a spectacular view of an extra-big, extra-bright moon, nicknamed a supermoon.

And not only does the moon's perigee coincide with Full Moon this month, but this perigee will be the nearest to Earth of any this year, as the distance of the moon's close approach varies by about 3 percent, according to meteorologists. This happens because the moon's orbit is not perfectly circular.

The normal rides around the world will be particularly high and low. At perigee, the moon will exert about 42 percent more tidal force than it will during its next apogee two weeks later.

The last supermoon occurred in March 2011.

To view this weekend's supermoon to best effect, look for it just after it rises or before it sets, when it is close to the horizon. There, you can catch a view of the moon behind buildings or trees, an effect which produces an optical illusion, making the moon seem even larger than it really is.

A beautiful Brazilian song for the Full Moon of 6 May

Brazilian musician, Almir Sater, and friends recorded on 16 December 2008, playing No Rastro da Lua Cheia - In the Wake of the Full Moon, from the album 7 Sinais.

When you listen to this music, think about those with whom you have the strongest heart connection.

Lyrics below in Portuguese, translated into English by Edna Spennato.

No Rastro da lua Cheila

No quintal lá de casa
Passava um pequeno rio
Que descia lá da serra
Ligeiro escorregadio
A agua era cristalina
Que dava pra ver o chão
Ia cortando a floresta
Na direção do sertão
Lembrança ainda me resta
Guardada no coração...

E tudo era azul celeste
Brasileiro cor de anil
Nem bem começava o ano
Já era final de Abril
O vento pastoreando
Aquelas nuvens no céu...
Fazia o mundo girar
Veloz como um carrossel
E levantava a poeira
E me arrancava o chapéu

Ah o tempo faz, tempo desfaz
E vai além sempre...

A vida vem lá de longe
É como se fosse um rio
Pra rio pequeno canoa
Pros grandes rios navios
E bem lá no fim de tudo
Começo de outro lugar
Será como Deus quiser
Como o destino mandar
No rastro da lua cheia
Se chega em qualquer lugar!

In the wake of the Full Moon

In the backyard of the house there
Flowed a little river
Coming down the mountain
A slight incline
The water was so crystal clear
That you could see the ground
It cut through the forest
In the direction of the interior
I still carry the memory
Held close in my heart ...

And everything was light blue
The colour of Brazilian indigo
The year had barely started
It was already late April
The wind was herding
Those clouds in the sky ...
Making the world go round
At the speed of a carousel
And the dust lifted
And I pulled down my hat

Oh, time does, time undoes
And goes on forever ...

Life comes from afar
It is like a river
For small river canoes
For great river vessels
Right there at the end of everything
Having begun in another place
It will be as God wants
As destiny would have
In the wake of the full moon
If it arrives in any place!

The Maya Full Moon attunement for the sacred site at Tazumel, El Salvador

Mayan ruins in Tazumel, El Salvador

The Grand Mayan Itza Council will be making a journey in spirit to the Maya ruins at Tazumel, El Salvador on 6 May 2012, the 44th in a sequence of 52 ceremonies leading up to the Full Moon of 28 December, 2012. This attunement is the 5th in the last of four 13-moon cycles which began on 13 November 2008.

We are asked to join them in sending our collective love and healing to Tazumel during the full moonrise in our own part of the world.

Tazumel is a Pre-Columbian Maya archeological site in Chalchuapa, El Salvador. Tazumel means, "the place where the victims were burned," in K'iche'. Tazumel comprises a series of Maya ruins, including ceremonial architecture, that date to about AD 100-1200.

The site includes an intricate water drainage system, a few tombs, adjacent minor pyramids, palaces and excavated ritual objects. Tazumel had a long and uninterrupted occupational history, from AD 100 until AD 1200, although its greatest development corresponds to the Classic period (AD 250–900).

Around AD 900, the Toltec style pyramid in evidence today was constructed; a large ball court was also built at this time. The site was abandoned around AD 1200.

The ruins of Tazumel are considered the most important and best preserved in El Salvador. The artifacts found at Tazumel provide evidence of ancient and active trade between Tazumel and places as far away as Panama and Mexico. The excavated ruins are part of an area covering 10 km² (4 sq mi), much of it buried under the surrounding town. Archaeologists estimate that the first settlements in the area of Chalchuapa date to around 1200 BC, though some believe it to be more like 4000 BC.

Much of this site is still buried under the town and the ruins on display span a period of over 1000 years. When the 1950s-era cement restoration of the Maya pyramid of Tazumel in El Salvador collapsed in October 2004, a scandal erupted. The best known site in El Salvador, Tazumel had appeared on stamps and other public documents, and it was considered a huge loss to the people of El Salvador. But archaeologists investigating the rubble discovered that the restoration had altered the original pyramid's contours to fit the restorer's idea of what a Maya pyramid looked like.

Wesak celebrations

Wesak is the most important of the Buddhist festivals and is celebrated on the full moon in May. It celebrates the Buddha's birthday, and, for some Buddhists, also marks his enlightenment and death. Buddha literally means 'one who is awake' and has become enlightened. It is a term that denotes a person who has attained the supreme wisdom and compassion of Enlightenment. To Buddhists Enlightenment is a blessed state in which the individual attains Nirvana - the transcendence of desire and suffering.

Chanting and praying are an important part of Wesak. The 'Bathing the Buddha' ceremony is also often included. Water is poured over the shoulders of the Buddha and serves as a reminder to purify the mind from greed, hatred and ignorance. People meditate on Loving Kindness to invoke Compassion, using the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum.

Om Mani Padme Hum

Rough Translation: 'Om, salutations to The Jewel of Consciousness (the mind) which has reached the heart's lotus.'

This mantra is practiced more than any other in the world. It is pre-eminent in producing a state of dynamic compassion in the sayer. Dynamic means that this compassion contains as part of it the ability to powerfully manifest in both subtle and obvious ways. One of the simple yet profound teachings which accompanies this mantra is the concept that when the mind and heart become united, anything is possible. The implications of this simple thought are staggering.
