Return of the Ancestors Ceremony

A spring miraculously appeared above the pond the day before the Return of the Ancestors Council came to bless the land with a water ceremony. Kisha Little Grandmother of the Sioux and Salish Tribe held the ceremony for the New Mexico and Colorado region at the request of Adam Yellowbird and Grandfather Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, leader of the Mayan Council of Elders. “At the time of the 12 Bhaktun and 13 Ahau is the time of the Return of our Ancestors and the return of the men and women of wisdom.” Apparently Little Grandmother had a vision and our land turned out to be that vision. A powerful earth acupuncture ceremony was held and quartz crystals were tossed into the waters of our pond and spring. We finished the ceremony by planting corn, bean and squash into the natural garden area of the property and watered each seed with water from the springs. Warren also found a perfect obsidian arrow head on the land the day before. It doesn't get any more Santa Fe than a weekend like that!
