The Munay-Ki are nine ancient rites that, until recently, were only available to the high wisdom-keepers of the Americas. In 1989, the Laika--the original keepers of these rites and the last descendants of the Inka descended from their high Andes mountain refuges to Cusco, Peru to attend Inti Raimi, a festival held on winter solstice (June 21). These high and holy people were thought to have perished centuries ago when the Spanish overwhelmed the Inka empire. Instead, they retreated to the harsh environment of the Andes and lived in small villages at high mountain elevations. They brought with them the warning of the Pachakuti--the great turning over of 2012--and the tools to survive it: the rites of the Munay-Kiand the teachings of the energetic realm.
Their ancient prophesies told that during this great turning over (it was said it might be a time of the harvesting of souls), a new species of human would appear on the planet. This new being, Homo luminous, person of light, would evolve within one generation instead of many hundreds. This new being would live without fear and could step out of linear time and into infinity. This would happen through the activation and re-encoding of our DNA and giving our cells instructions on how to grow, what to do, and how to die. The rites of the Munay-Ki play an important role in that change; they are the nine gates that heal us and transform our human energy field into that of homo luminous.
The rites are gifted to each person as energetic transmissions, and they arrive in seed form, to be nourished and fed so that they grow more powerful within you. This isn't an energetic pharmaceutical; it is almost an obligation to work through and step out of the stories and harmful behaviors that have limited us in the past.
The training of the Earthkeepers has an energetic component, a series of initiations that help us to develop a new architecture in our luminous energy field. The rites anchor each of the critical junctures in the process of becoming homo luminous.
The nine rites are the sum total of attunements that we go through as we transit from the body of a human to the body of angels.
These rites were first given to ancient teachers by angelic beings, and now are passed on from teacher to student. When an Earthkeeper gifts the Munay-Ki to a student, it is the lineage of luminous beings that transmits itself, that leaps from the head of the master to the student as they lean into each other and touch, forehead to forehead. To transfer this energetic information, the Earthkeeper simply maintains sacred space and embodies the vibration of the level she wants to transmit. While you can’t undergo these initiations on your own, once you receive them, the rites are yours to transmit to others as you wish. But there is one caveat. The rites are offered free of charge. You may charge a fee to coach a client during the changes that they will go through as they receive the rites, but not for the Munay-Ki itself.
The Nine Rites
The first rite consists of protections installed in your LEF. These are known as the Bands of Power, and consist of five energetic bands representing earth, air, fire, water, and pure light. These bands are installed in your Luminous energy field, and act as filters, breaking down into one of the five elements any negative energies that come your way so that these energies can feed you instead of making you toxic or ill. The Bands of Power are always ‘on’, and negative energies bounce right off them. In a world filled with fear, the bands provide essential protection.
The second rite is the Healers rite, which connects you to a lineage of Earthkeepers from the past that come and assist you in your personal healing. The Laika know that we have tremendous spiritual assistance available to us. These luminous beings work on us during our meditation and sleep time to heal the wounds of the past and of our ancestors.
The third is the Harmony rites, in which you receive seven archetypes into your chakras. In the first chakra, you receive the archetype of serpent; jaguar goes into the second; hummingbird into the third; and eagle into the fourth. Then, three “archangels” go into your upper three chakras. Huascar Inka, the keeper of the lower world and the unconscious is transmitted into the fifth chakra; Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent God of the Americas, and keeper of the middle world (our waking world) goes into the sixth; and Pachakuti, the protector of the upper world (our super-conscious) and keeper of the time to come goes into the seventh chakra.
These archetypes are transmitted into your chakras as seeds. These seeds germinate with fire, and you have to perform a number of fire meditations to awaken them and help them grow. Afterward, they help combust the psychic sludge that has built up in your chakras, so that your chakras can shine with their original light as you acquire a rainbow body. This rite helps you to shed your past the way the serpent sheds her skin.
Next are the Seer rites. This rite installs filaments of light extending from your visual cortex in the back of your head to your third eye and heart chakras. This practice awakens your ability to perceive the invisible world. Many of our students at the Healing the Light Body School find that a few months after receiving the Seer rites, they’re able to perceive the world of energy around them.
The fifth is the Daykeeper rites. The Daykeepers were the masters of the ancient stone altars found in sacred places throughout the world, from Stonehenge to Machu Picchu. The Daykeeper is able to call on the power of these ancient altars to heal and bring balance to the world. This rite is an energetic transmission that connects you to a lineage of Laikas from the past.
According to lore, the Daykeepers call on the sun to rise each morning and set each evening, made sure that humans were in harmony with mother earth, and honored the ways of the feminine. The Daykeepers were the midwives who attended births and deaths, as well as being the herbalists, or curanderas. They were generally women, and were knowledgeable about the ways of the feminine earth. This initiation begins the process of healing your inner feminine, and helps you to step beyond fear and practice peace.
The sixth is the Wisdomkeeper rites. The legends say that the ancient wisdom resides in the high mountains. The ice-covered peaks were revered as places of power, just as other mountains around the world, from Mt. Sinai to Mt. Fuji to Mt. Olympus, have been honored as places where humans meet the divine. The lineage of Wisdomkeepers are medicine men and women from the past who defeated death and stepped outside of time. The job of the Wisdomkeeper is to protect the medicine teachings and share them with others when appropriate. This rite helps you to step outside of time and taste infinity.
The seventh is the Earthkeeper rites. This rite connects you to a lineage of archangels that are guardians of our galaxy. They’re reputed to have human form and be as tall as trees. The Earthkeepers, who are stewards of all life on the Earth, come under the direct protection of these archangels and can summon their power when they need to in order to bring healing and balance to any situation. The rite of the Earthkeepers helps you learn the ways of the seer, and to dream the world into being.
The eighth is the Starkeeper rite. This rite anchors you safely to the time after the great change that is said will occur on or around the year 2012. According to lore, when you receive this rite, your physical body begins to evolve into that of Homo luminous. The aging process is slowed down, and you become resistant to diseases you were once vulnerable to. After I received these rites, I noticed that I no longer processed events primarily at the physical level. When I caught a cold, I processed it at the energetic level and it would wash through me in a day or two instead of a week or two. I started to live, and process the events that occurred in my life, at the level Spirit. When you receive these rites, you acquire stewardship of the time to come and all future generations.
The ninth is the Creator rite. When you receive this initiation, you awaken the God-light within you acquire stewardship for all of creation, from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of galaxies in the universe. This rite has never been available before on the planet. Although there were individuals who attained this level of initiation, and awakened their Christ or Buddha consciousness, it was never possible to transmit these from one person to another, until today. So while Spirit-to-human transmission happened on occasion, human-to-human transmission was impossible until now. The Creator rite was brought forth and gifted to us by Inka elders in the Andes during the summer of 2006.

Pi Stones are typically gifted after receiving the last of the nine Munay Ki rites and are also used when passing the rites on to others. Although not essential, many Munay Ki recipients also like to have their own stones, as a reminder of the rites and as an aide in connecting with the energies.
Pi Stones are symbolic of our luminous bodies and the energetic universe. Their circular shape represents the archetype for “wholeness.” The Pi Stone represents the ouroboros, serpent of light, swallowing its own tail, constantly creating itself and forming a circle. It symbolizes the eternal unity of all things, the cycle of life, death and rebirth. The center represents our energetic spine, Kundalini energy, that flows through the center of our bodies. Kundalini energy is symbolic of our own spiraling DNA and is associated with the serpent of light coiled around the base of your spine (root chakra) approximately 3.142 times. When it is awakened, it spirals up your spine like a figure eight around each of your seven chakras creating a never ending loop opening you to higher levels of consciousness.
