Prayer to the 7 bacabs

Traditionaly every  ceremony or gathering starts by opening the sacred space by calling the 7 Directions. They create space for us (and more) and open the connection to the source. From this source – Hunab K’u -, in this connection, every person within this space will find his/her answers, what they need to remember will stay with them. What needs to be done will be done, etc. The whole is a lot bigger than we can see.


Prayer to the seven directions by Valum Votan:

From the East, House of Light,
may wisdom dawn in us so we may see all things in clarity.

From the North, House of Night,
may wisdom ripen in us so we may know all from within.

From the West, House of Transformation,
may wisdom be transformed into right action, so we may do what must be done.

From the South, House of the Eternal Sun,
may right action reap the harvest so we may enjoy the fruits of planetary being.

From Above, House of Heaven,
may star people and ancestors be with us now.

From Below, House of Earth,
may the heartbeat of her crystal core bless us with harmonies to end all war.

From the Center, Galactic Source,
which is everywhere at once, may everything be known as the light of mutual love.

*Oh Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!
Oh Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!
Oh Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!

*”One giver of movement and measure, All hail the unity of mind & nature!”
