Unveiling the Zuvuya
Getting to the heart of the matter
by Aluna Joy

"All of life's experiences are but tools in the evolution of the soul."

Just when we think we got it all figured out, and our lives on the right track, some times when we least expect it, we get the whammy of a cosmic Zuvuya (zoo-voo-ya). A Zuvuya is a universal energy infused with intent that runs in reverse. The ancient Maya knew about this cosmic force and knew how to ride it. A Zuvuya can show up in our lives as a reverse way of thinking, reverse way of doing, reverse way of living etc. Being mechanical humans we tend to expect things to go the way they always have… our perceived forward. As we bridge our linear ways with new ways, we may find that what we once could tolerate in our lives is becoming to loud to ignore. Sometimes in life we have to back track.

It is not that we have been asleep, but more like the universe has jumped to another level taking us with it. Another layer of the truth is now in our faces. Those questions we have had, are suddenly finding answers. Many are discovering that these answers send us in a direction we didn't except. Nothing like getting blind sided by the universe. But logically…maybe the only way to raise up this world, and our lives is doing a global Zuvuya.
Years ago the Star Elders said to me that sometimes what we think is truth is not, and what we though were lies were truth. Now I wonder…. how can we get to the heart of the matter if we don't know what way is up! This is the Zuvuya challenge.

Today's Shamans understand the shift in perceptions helps us gain a clear integral view of the world and our lives within it. Learning to see the world in a Zuvuya is the same thing. When we see with different perceptions we discover new views of our lives and world. This can give us great clarity and compassion for other people views, but it can also clear the fog where we are not living our destiny. This raises another question for me. When we find that a few things in our lives are not in alignment with our souls destiny what are we to do? Do we dump it all to gain back those small pieces we lost?

It brings up the question… Does one bad apple really ruin the whole barrel? If we are wanting to live our truth how can we do that if we are not honoring every single calling of our souls. If we deny any part of ourselves does that one place become the bad apple slowly and surly rotting the rest of our lives to the point of no return? Or …. are we just throwing the baby out with the bath water? Can we really know if the Zuvuya has arrived in our lives.

If our job is 80% great but the other 20% depresses us and leaves us feeling unfulfilled, do be dump the job? Is the 80 % enough when the 20% get more and more unbearable. If where we live does not nurture our spirit 100% do we keep moving until we find a true home? And the most important is personal relationship. We all know a bad relationship by now and we get out of them quick … but sometimes two good people get together some how discover that they just don't click. Do you leave the relationship to find that all encompassing relationship that sends you to those other worlds we hear about and see in our visions? Do you foster a deeper relationship with yourself? If any issue in our lives shut us down little by little, why do we stay there? Can we let go of the comfort of the known so we can unveil our hearts and discover our soul desires.

OK, by now your saying that I am asking for perfection in a unperfect world. Everyone can't have the home space they dream about, or the perfect job or the perfect relationship… But if we look at the laws of manifesting and abundance, is it our perception of limitation and fear of change that keep us from the highest possible vision we have inside? Why do we always settle for less?

For me the inner spiritual life was with me at birth. It is natural for me to be in those unexplainable unseen worlds. So do I dump the convinces and comforts of the material world that may be impinging on me to stay within my natural souls calling. Yes… if I am brave. The other option is numbing myself to tolerate a space that does not feed my soul. My dear teacher in Mt Shasta, Peal Dorris always said "Be Natural." I think now that I am understanding this concept from a new perception. If I am not natural - do what is natural to me and am not acting from my personal integrity.

On the flip side we could think Zuvuyally (a new word for us all) … What if your souls call was the world you can see, the outer world. Would it be unnatural to dump it all for the simple spiritual life. Sure. If all the complications and details of the material world makes you feel alive why would you want to. If you alter who you truly are, does this altering become your bad apple? The question is are we being natural or being controlled by our fears?

This way of thinking was triggered during a pilgrimage to Palenque, Mexico for Mayan New Year. Our group allowed spirit to move us in what ever direction it did, even though we might have had other expectations. In a visit to Pacal Votan's Tomb we all felt a deep love and peace merge with us. When I came out of the tomb I was different. My life had changed and I was clearer. The effects of this trip are still in the process of unveiling as I write this.

It was shortly after the Maya new year on the 21st that many of us felt a huge shift at about 3 to 4 am. I was awake at the time listening to the howler monkeys in the tree tops outside my comfy palapa … and in a matter of seconds my body shifted so radically that at first I thought el teruista had found me while everything became very clear. Something is stirring inside of us. Some new way of being that we didn't expect. I think the Zuvuya has arrived.

When I got home something inside me said "I HAVE to LIVE it ALL THE WAY or not at all." I HAVE to LIVE what is RIGHT not what is comfortable. To follow integrity of spirit no matter where it takes me. We should never allow life's circumstances to slowly and quietly numb us into closing down or being un-natural.

I think the time has come for us as a collective human race to not let any thing in the world take us away from our own hearts calling. It took us a lot of hard to unveil ourselves. It is so easy to loose ourselves bit by bit, and ignore the blessings and gifts that are right in front of us. It is so easy to be blind to the truth .... and yet so frightening to face it. The next step has arrived. It time to show up all the way for ourselves. I hope we have the courage to face it with arms wide open.

I hope you all have the amazing courage you need, the open hearts the eyes wide open and the power to take the next step, No matter how hard or scary, because one thing I have learned if any thing at all is that the best stuff in life usually scares me right back to life.

Dear Aluna: Just a few lines to sincerely thank you for the wonderful letter you sent us. It is not only informative of an unknown process but it has helped me cope with unbelievable changes in most of my friends during these past few weeks. Talk about reversals, it seems like my most "christian" and "religious" friends have gone into an absolute turn around in everything. I was not able to explain their behavior and was worried sick about most of them, but now after reading your letter I understand it's a very important process that they are going through. For some reason it appears to be affecting (in my case) my most religious friends. I am O.K. and so are most of my New Age friends. I really wish from my bottom of my heart that I could take your letter, show it to them and let them begin to understand so they can help themselves. Perhaps the time will be right and I will be able to do so. But in the meantime, it has helped me tremendously and for that I thank you. Keep up the excellent work and many blessings. Millie
