A short report back about what came up during the treatment process on 27 May 2010


All beings everywhere are invited to join us for this global distant healing event, starting at 5 pm GMT/UTC on Wednesday 28 April. 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 20th Full Moon sacred site attunement of the Grand Maya Itza Council for Jibhafanta, Mongolia (more info below).

This is a special event focussing 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 on the NE coast of Brazil, with a surrogate assisting locally in Brazil and five other surrogates anchoring the healing energy and releasing unneeded energies in 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 on the north east coast of Brazil with injured and homeless animals and abandoned litters of kittens, and the distant healing work done for animals and for refugees, victims of war and disasters, and indigent, homeless or disadvantaged people.

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 Wednesday 26 May, 2010.

The Maya Full Moon attunement for Jibhafanta, Mongolia

The Grand Mayan Itza Council will be making a journey in spirit to Jibhafanta, Mongolia on 27 May 2010, the 20th in a sequence of 52 ceremonies leading up to the Full Moon of 28 December, 2012.

This attunement is the 7th in the 2nd 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 Jobhafanta during the full moonrise in our own part of the world.

For more info and the full list of sacred sites and full moon dates released by Don Hunbatz Men of the Grand Maya Itza Council, go to this link.

Where is the sacred site of Jibhafanta?

There are over 600 major sacred sites worshipped in Mongolia, each of them marked by ovoos (heaps of stones, bones and other significant objects left there by people).

Books have been written about the sacred sites of Mongolia, films have been produced, and several lists of the more well-known sites have been published on the web, but Jibhafanta is not mentioned in any of them. And if one does a Google search for "Jibhafanta", nothing about it comes up at all, except for its presence on the list of sacred sites given by the Maya ..... so it's exact location in Mongolia remains a mystery to the world, and perhaps that is the way it should be.

However, fortunately we do not need the GPS coordinates for the purposes of tuning in to the energy of this sacred place. To link up with the Maya ceremony for the site on the Full Moon of 27 May, it is fine to simply consciously connect with the energy and devas of the place through our intention, and we can also say "Jibhafanta" aloud three times to "call in" the vibration of the place.


After the 13th century, Mongolia became a Buddhist country, but during the communist period, which lasted from 1924 to 1989, it was violently suppressed in purges which killed tens of thousands of Buddhist monks and destroyed virtually all the monasteries.

Since 1989, Buddhism and the 40 000 year old Tengerism (shamanism) have been re-emerging in Mongolia, and practising shamans and Buddhists have been restoring the beautiful natural environment of Mongolia in accordance with their age-old principles. More info at these links:

In Tengerism, the world is believed to be alive with spirits.

The plants, animals, rocks, mountains and water are all believed to have souls, and these nature spirits must be respected, in order for people to remain in the balance with all of them. Balance is regarded as the crucial factor in keeping harmony within individuals, the community, and the environment. When things get out of balance, there are harmful effects, and this is when the shaman is called on for help.

The Shaman

Western people believe that a shaman is something like a “medicine man”, "holy priest" or “magic doctor”. But in Mongolia and Siberia the shamans are not simple folk doctors, but are regarded as powerful spiritual people who receive help from the world of spirits.

The main function of the shaman is to restore and maintain balance in his community with the assistance of the spirit world.

Shamans conduct blessings, rituals of protection, hunting magic, rain making and divination. They also heal sicknesses which have a spiritual cause. Shamans are the caretakers of traditional culture as well, and their knowledge of ancient tradition and counsel has been sought throughout the ages.

Reverence for nature

In Mongolia, natural sacred sites are protected by the government and treated with utmost respect by the largely nomadic population, and shamans are openly revered once again after hiding in the shadows for 65 years, and are able once again to practise their 40 000 year old traditions.

Within the vicinity of these sites, the cutting of trees, hunting of wild animals or digging of the land is prohibited. Dating back to pre-Buddhist animist beliefs, these taboos serve the double purpose of protecting places of worship and the surrounding environment. These traditions were later incorporated into Buddhism, and are still practised today.

The photographer Hamid Sardar-Afkhami mounts yearly expeditions into outer Mongolia, tracking the raindeer people and recording in pictures and on film the ancient and enduring nomadic civilization, the shamans and their practices and beliefs related to "a fabulous pantheon of spirit-animals. Following horse-breeders, bear-hunters, wolf-tamers, eagle-masters and reindeer people on their seasonal migrations... in a place where men still speak the language of the animals."

Tenger spirituality and interaction with the heavens and nature

Tenger is regarded as the creator and sustainer of balance in the world, nature, the weather and the seasons. Lightning is Tenger’s form of showing displeasure or an indication of high spiritual power.

The crown of the head is believed to have a small piece of Tenger residing in it; it is the point of connection between the individual standing in the center of his world and Heaven above. This point receives energy from Tenger which flows down the center of the person’s soul sphere. This piece of Tenger in a person’s crown has a counterpart star in the Heavens. The star shines brighter or dimmer according to the strength of the person’s windhorse (personal power), and goes out at death.

Objects struck by lightning, meteorites or ancient artefacts are called Tengeriin us (Heaven’s hair). They contain a spirit (utha) which is a concentrated package of Heaven’s power. Objects struck by lightning (nerjer uthatai) and meteorites (buumal uthatai) can be placed in milk or liquor to energize the liquid with the spirit of the object. Shamans drink this liquid to incorporate the power of the utha spirit (Heaven's power).

Sacred mountains, rivers, springs, forests, rocks and trees

Mountains, springs of streams, forests, and individual rocks and trees are regarded as the homes of nature spirits.

A tree symbolizes the world center, where Heaven and earth touch, where all times and places converge. They may be honored by tying on pieces of cloth. The lone birch, the "shaman tree", is called ongonmodon, for these trees are believed to be the home of the shamans' helper spirits, Ongon.

The barisaa (prayer tree - shrine) is an important site of worship (see video clip below).

This ritual is believed to bring peace and reduce violence wherever it is performed, particularly in places that have been sites of death due to war or violence. It calls on the nature spirits to bring inspiration, calm people's hearts, and create thoughts of peace and love, cleansing the soul of evil nature spirits.

The ritual for the calming (reducing of negative energy) of the spirits is believed to have a permanent effect for all people in the community where it is done, not only the participants.

Unusual rocks or trees are believed to have a strong spirit and are respected or given offerings of tobacco or liquor.

Mountain spirits
are considered to be very powerful, and are prayed to in order to provide good hunting and abundance of natural food plants. These ceremonies are usually held around the times of the equinoxes and solstices and the new and full moons, and are usually performed by the elders of the local clan or tribe.

Mountain spirits are worshipped at special shrines called ovoo, which are tall piles of rocks and tree branches, roughly conical in diameter.

Ritual In Honour of the Mother Tree

Spirits of Animals, Totems, Animal Guides and Hunting

The world of the forest and water is the home of wild animals. They are called amitan, "having an ami or soul" like humans. Animals are believed to reincarnate in the same species, with personalities, language and psychic abilities.

Respect for animal spirits dictates certain rules for hunting, and hunters apologize to animals when killing them, explaining that they need to take the meat and hide for their survival. Domestic animals are also killed in a respectful manner.

Certain animals such as the bear, eagle, blue wolf and red deer, are considered to be totems or symbolic ancestors for tribes or clans. The porcupine, snake, fox, weasel, spider, and pheasant are believed to often be shamans who are soul travelling, and are usually not eaten. Animal spirits are also guides and teachers for shamans.

Rivers, lakes, rivulets, springs, and the ocean are the residence of the water animals as well as a passageway for spirits. The water is full of spirits and the loon above all other birds is believed to communicate with the souls in the water. The cry of the loon is frequently imitated in the songs of Mongolian and Siberian shamans. Among the fish the pike is considered powerful.

The Ovoo or shrine

The Ovoo (hill), heap or cairn, is the equivalent of a shaman's shrine or altar. This is a heap of bones or stone formed by people paying their respects at the ovoo. They are inhabited by the spirits of the locality, local deities (nibdagh and shiddagh) of the Mongolian people. When passing by an ovoo, travellers are required to walk around it three times clockwise, and place a rock on it, adding symbolically to the spirit’s power, and by adding the rock he also receives energy for his windhorse (personal psychic power) and good luck for his journey.

Ceremonies are held at ovoo during the year which nearby families or clans would celebrate in honor of the local spirit as well as Father Heaven and Mother Earth and other shaman spirits.
