The Rites of the Munay-Ki

Anne is a certified Rites of the Munay-Ki Practitioner and welcomes your inquiries related to receiving the rites or knowing more about them.

What are the Rites of the Munay-Ki?

 

The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about a period of great transformation and foretell of a new human appearing on the planet – people of wisdom who live free of fear and abide in the grace of their eternal nature, Homo Luminous. The Rites of the Munay-Ki transform and upgrade our luminous energy field. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past, the karmic & genetic programs and beliefs we inherited. They re-inform our DNA, enabling you to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently
 

In the Quechua language, “Munay” means universal love. “Ki” is from the Japanese word for energy, as in life force. Together, these words mean the power of love. As the ten rites of the Munay-Ki germinate, our heart awakens, and we feel empowered to dream an entire new world into being – the world that we yearn for our children’s children to inherit.

KARPAYS - RITES OF INITIATION

Rites of initiation have existed for millennia in traditions from around the world. They are energetic transmissions or empowerments passed from teacher to student or mentor to mentee. Lore explains that in the beginning the transmissions are bestowed by luminous beings to humans, and only when the time is right, the initiation can be passed from human to human in the form of seeds. The oldest of the Munay-Ki rites have been available for thousands of years while other rites, a few hundred years, and the most recent ones, just decades or years. Once you receive the seeds of the rites, it is up to you to cultivate the wisdom, and to mature it into fruit-bearing trees.

The Ten Rites 

Rite 1 - THE HEALER'S RITE - HAMPE KARPA

The Healer’s Rite connects us to an ancient lineage of medicine women and men who encourage us towards our personal alchemy. To be a healer for others, we must know from our own experience how to transform our wounds into sources of wisdom and compassion. This lineage accompanies us on our path to harmony and well-being.

RITE 2 - THE BANDS OF POWER - CHUMPI KARPAY These are five energetic belts woven around the body with the essence of each element: earth, water, fire, air, and pure light. These bands strengthen our connection with nature and act as filters disintegrating negative and heavy energies, thus protecting us physically and psychically. In this way we can be more present and available for life, instead of squandering our energy in fear, doubt or worry.

 RITE 3 - THE HARMONY RITE - AYNI KARPAY It connects us to animal spirits—Serpent, Jaguar, Hummingbird, Eagle, and Condor—that reset our instincts, so we can maintain physical and emotional integrity. For example, they warn us about the right relationships with people, at the right times, and at the right places. In addition, it connects us to the guardians of the three mythical worlds: upper, middle, and lower. These keepers guide our evolution, instigating us to heal our past and guiding us to a healthy and auspicious future.

RITE 4 - THE SEER’S RITE - KAWAK KARPAY

It establishes new neural connections between the visual cortex, the third eye, and the heart. Thus, the inner vision of the invisible world of subtle energies is awakened together with the grace of those who see with the eyes of love and compassion.

RITE 5 - THE DAY KEEPER’S RITE - PAMPA MESAYOK KARPAY It initiates us to a lineage of medicine men and women who bring health and harmony to a community by activating and feeding their altars. The elements—earth, water, wind, fire, space—are honored and balanced with prayers and intention, so life may flow in sacred order. This lineage brings great awareness of the gentle and receptive qualities of life, healing and empowering our relationship to the feminine.

RITE 6 - THE WISDOM KEEPER’S RITE - ALTO MESAYOK KARPAY

The wisdom of this lineage is not about accumulating information in our heads the way a computer does on its hard drive. The Alto Mesayok remembers how to dialogue with nature, understanding in their hearts the energy that moves her cycles and rhythms. In the Andes they are renowned for their ability to call lightning and for their intimate connection with the ‘apus’ or guardian spirits of the mountains.

RITE 7 - THE EARTH KEEPER’S RITE - KURAK AKUYEK KARPAY 

These lineages of men and women have the truest and broadest vision about the meaning of life on Earth. They do not handle the greatest number of theories and scientific data about the evolution of species. Rather, they have the perspective of life from the consciousness of the sun and the stars that illuminate us. In the mystical Andes they are recognized as the ascended masters who communicate with the stars and masticate this knowledge to deliver it in a soft, discreet, and digestible way to their peoples. Just as a mother chews food for her baby who doesn’t have teeth.

RITE 8 - THE STARKEEPER’S RITE - MOSOQ KARPAY

This initiation awakens the perception of our possible future, warning us about the dangers and opportunities, about the horrors and the beauty. It is the awareness of prophets who do not only know the prophecy from a distance, but take an active role in affecting change for a better destiny. From the point of view of Dr. Alberto Villoldo, this initiation opens the doorway to lucidly participate in our evolution from ‘homo sapiens’ to ‘homo luminous’.

RITE 9 - THE CREATOR RITE - TAITANCHIS RANTIS KARPAY

This initiation stimulates us to discover our infinite nature not separated from the creative source and all of creation; makes us sensible to our manifesting power and teaches us to dream the world into being. The Taitanchis Rantis makes us realize that creating is not only a privilege, but also a responsibility, for which, it invites us to create with great love and courage.

RITE 10 - THE RITE OF THE WOMB - KISMA KARPAY

It is a healing and a blessing, connecting us to a lineage of women who freed themselves from suffering. This lineage wants us to remember that “the womb is not a place to store fear or pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life”. The womb must be a pure vessel as it bears the generations to come.
