As Pampamisa you have to be able to recognize the healing powers of the plants by the taste and the smell and be able to speak and listen to them.As Chaupimisa you are able to connect, understand and work with the powers of Mother Nature and be guided by our sacred mountains, called Apus or vortex, mountains with a great amount of healing Powers and high energy frequencies.As Hananhamisayoc you have to create magic and perform what they call miracles using the herbs, the ceremonies and the sacred sound. These were part of our daily life, before Christianity and conquistadores came to our Nations .Everything in our universe is Pachakamaqs - Gods manifestation of unconditional love. Our universe is fulfilled with Hatun sonqo (unconditional love). Our Ancestors taught us to live with love and respect to our Pachamama - Mother Earth.Many historians ridiculed our Ancestors by saying that the Indians worshiped the mountains, the rivers, the water falls and animals as Gods. Our ignorance nowadays will not allow us to understand the teachings of the Golden Age people, the Intiq Churinkuna, Children of the Sun - my Ancestors, the Inca people, were people of the light.Just looking at the megalithic monuments they built, you are amazed with so many questions inside you.Thousands of years ago, our ancestors were performing brain surgeries and traveling along the universe - this is something we don’t understand yet.I’ve been so lucky to spend most of my life inside these monuments - Sacsaywaman. I feel like this is my inner temple. I spent most of my life there, just listening to the stones - our Grandpas and Grandmas whispering to me about the wisdom and knowledge of our Ancestors, the sacred valley all the way to Machu Picchu andChoqekirao, deep into the jungle, is the way to the K’apaccnan (path to enlightenment) where the Golden Age people are still alive.
I am of the people descended from the Taironas, the Kogis, the Keepers of Harmony for Humanity up in the Sierra Navada of Santa Marta, Colombia. My journey's path began with life in the Andes of Colombia. My spirit memories began with the long pilgrimage into the high mountain communities, gathering our sacred songs, dances, and ceremonies that created my spitiual foundation.
As a cultural ambassador.I have experienced many walks, leading my people and providing for them a bridge between the ancient and the modern world. When I moved closer to the ancient temples and sacred sites in the high mountains of Cusco, Peru. Here I met my husband, Wachan Bajiyoperak, who is a skilled medicine man. With his guidance, I learned the ancient practices of herbal medicine and the art of sound healing. I am a skilled practitioner of both herbal medicine and sound healing. Through the sacred sound, we heal ourselves, our families, and our communities.
As a ceremonial facilitator. I was privileged to create awareness between the men and women of the Andes. For centuries, women were excluded from participating in our Ancient Ways. Now is the time of the shift, the time to reconnect with our feminine side. In this way, we can better learn to heal and love Pachamama (Mother Earth). My work to bring balance to the women and men of the Andes continues today: I lead many men and women in retreats and ceremonies, to help them connect with their feminine side.
In addition to my path as a medicine woman, sacred sound healer, and spiritual guide, I also have extensive training leading tours to sacred sites around the world, including Peru, and Colombia.
I invite you to celebrate with me the blessings and abundance of our Mother Earth.
