The rites of the Munay-Ki
The prophecies of the ancient Americas talk about a time of great transformation in the world, a time when it is necessary for a new type of human being to emerge - someone who embodies wisdom, love and power to combat the fear based states presiding on the Earth today, to become stewards of this planet and all that live upon it - the Homo-luminous.
Munay-Ki comes from a Quechuan word meaning Love. Though this is not the kind of love that we are perhaps more familiar with – rather than being an emotion, the ‘Munay’ form of Love is pure energy.
It is the Love that the Pachamama, Mother Earth has for us.
It is the Love that Inti Tayta, Father Sun, shines down on us as sunlight. Munay is Unconditional Love.
The word ‘Ki’, though not Quechuan, represents the power of these rites to heal and help you achieve greater harmony. According to this tradition there are three power centres held in the body:

Yanchay - the power of Wisdom, which resides in the 6th chakra
Munay - the power of Love, which resides in the heart
Yan’kay - the power of Service, which resides in the belly

The Munay-Ki is your
invitation to dream a
New world into Being
As these 9 rites of the Munay Ki are downloaded into your energy field, they bring with them an ability to help transform you. Aided by your personal healing work, this will allow you to come into alignment, what the Q’ero know as ‘ayni’, a living embodiment of these energetic qualities of Wisdom, Love and Service, that represent being in right relationship with all of creation.
These powerful initiations from the Inca tradition are transmitted from person to person.
These Codes heal our wounds, change our DNA and energetic structure much like new seeds planted in fertile soil. Love and power working together releases us from our past-selves and brings forth who we can become, the best of what it means to be a human being. A sense of belonging, a sense of purpose and having the ability to make a difference whilst living in the right relationship.

When you receive these rites they are given as seeds into your luminous body. You will need to carry out a candle or fire ceremony to germinate and grow these seeds and develop your own deeper connection with each rite.

The nine great rites are based on initiatory sacred practises of the Laika, the shamans of the High Andes in Peru and the Amazon. These great initiations take you on a personal journey connecting you to the ancient lineages, of these medicine people, healers, shamans, caretakers of the earth and wise Sages, who walked on the earth more than 30,000 years ago.

They are common to all Shamanic traditions and have been made available to us so we can heal our wounds from present day, past life, karmic and ancestral wounding's. As we heal these wounds, we awaken our capacity to heal, upgrade and transform our luminous energy bodies, re-informing our DNA so that we can become the Homo luminous ourselves and grow a new body which ages, heals and dies differently.

We become what the Inca called "The Children of the Sun" as our energy body glows with radiance with each of our chakras shining with their original light as we clear old wounds and energies, so that we acquire what is known as a rainbow body. After receiving the nine rites, you can begin to dream the world into being both for yourself and for the Earth and all of its inhabitants so the world can become a better place for our children and our children's children.

Rite One: Healer's Rite

This rite connects you to a lineage of ancient healers and shamans from the past who come to assist you in your personal transformation, awakening your healing power so that everyone you touch is blessed. There is tremendous spiritual assistance available, and these luminous ones work in our meditations and also our sleep to heal the wounds of the past and those of our ancestors. This rite opens the pathways to healing, organizes, aligns and informs your energetic support system. It also awakens the natural healing power in your hands.

Rite Two: The Bands of Power

Five luminous energy belts are woven into the luminous energy field (LEF) for protection. They act as filters, breaking down any negative energy that comes toward you into one of the five elements; earth, water, fire, air and ether (pure light) and subsequently feed your LEF instead of allowing the energies to make you sick. This rite powerfully strengthens and empowers your luminous energy field, bringing you an even greater capacity to engage the power of transformation. These bands are incredibly protective and nurturing. Always "on", negative energies bounce right off them. In a world where fear currently predominates, they provide essential protection. They are something which can be shared with anyone and everyone and are especially useful if you work with lots of people, be it in your environment or as a therapist or care worker. It is particularly useful for those who are empathic or highly sensitive to energies.

Rite Three: Harmony Rite

A transmission of 7 Archetypal energies of the Andean Medicine Way into the Chakras as energetic seeds that metabolise trauma and heavier energy. First you receive the archetypes of serpent, jaguar, hummingbird and eagle/condor; next you receive three archangels: Huascar, the Keeper of the Lower World (our unconscious), Quetzalcoatl, feathered serpent, the Keeper of the Middle World (our waking world), and Pachakuti, the Protector of the Upper World (our super-conscious) and Keeper of the Time to Come. This rite connects you with powerful archetypal allies that can assist you in coming into right relationship in every aspect of your life. These allies support and encourage the cleansing and clearing, opening and empowering of each one of your 7 chakras so that you may acquire a rainbow body. This rite balances and harmonizes your energetic structure and the exchanges you make in the world. The energetic seeds are germinated with fire in our fire ceremonies. These rites connect you even more deeply to the Animal Kingdom and are particularly useful on a shamanic path.

Rite Four: Seer's Rite

Extra-cerebral pathways of light are installed that connect the visual cortex with the third eye and heart chakra. This awakens the inner seer and your ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and Spirit with the eyes of the Heart. It clears and opens your capacity to shift the perceptions and projections you are constantly engaging. These rites support clarity within the dream state, allowing a better comprehension of messages received during dreams, journeys or meditations.



Rite Five: Daykeeper's Rite

This rite connects you to a lineage of Master Healers from the past; midwives, herbalists and curanderas (shamans and healers). Daykeepers are able to call on the ancient altars to bring healing and balance to Mother Earth as well as calling on the sun to rise each day and to bring humans into harmony with the Earth. They were masters of the ancient altars in sacred places around the world such as Machu Picchu and Stonehenge. After this rite you will feel more connected to ancient sites and working with the Divine Feminine energy, assisting you to reconnect with the feminine principles of creation, helping you to heal your own inner feminine including your relationships with women, so that you may step beyond fear and practise peace.

Rite Six: Wisdomkeeper's Rite

This rite connects you to a lineage of luminous beings from the past and the future asking to encode their wisdom and knowledge to heal your inner masculine, your relationship with the masculine in your life, step outside of time, become steeped in the medicine teachings and taste infinity. This rite is associated with the snow-capped mountains (Apus), revered places of power, perhaps a distant memory of our ancestors from the Himalayas and other sacred mountains such as Mount Fuji, Mount Olympus, Mount Shasta and Mount Sinai, and will connect you to sacred high places and the Divine Masculine energy.

Rite Seven: Earthkeeper's Rite

This rite connects you to the lineage of archangels and guardians of the galaxies and our solar system, stewards of all life on Earth. Lifting you from your earth-bound existence, you embody the energy of the High Masters, Saints and Avatars. The rite sets your spirit free so you can begin your journey to the Stars, beginning with the Sun, our local star, so you may dream your world into being. You learn the way of the great seers and become planetary guardians and protectors. This rite connects you deeply to our planet and makes you more aware of the impact we are having on our great Mother and how we can help.


Rite Eight: Starkeeper's Rite

This Rite safely anchors you to the new energy following the great change that took place around 2012. It connects you to the energy of who you are becoming and you also take on stewardship of the time to come for future generations. As each of your energetic centres are informed by the highest state of your being, This rite enables your physical body to have the ability to evolve into homo luminous, your DNA is re-encoded, the aging process is slowed down, and you become more resistant to disease and decay. This rite also connects you deeply with the star beings.

Rite Nine: Creator Rite

This rite connects you with the Divine source and awakens the creator light within you. This is a very profound, sacred and powerful rite and changes the way you view the world and your life. As it awakens the Creator-light within, this rite brings stewardship for all creation - from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of galaxies. Once you start to understand the true nature of your being, this pure consciousness enables you to expand the capacity to co-create your life experience and this stewardship becomes natural. Once attained only through direct transmission from Spirit, it is now possible to transmit from one person to another. The Creator rite was brought forth and gifted to us by Inca elders in the Andes during the summer of 2006.
