Our country has reached an era of turmoil, and the gods demand blood. Rush to your cities and perform blood-letting to nourish and propitiate Tohil, god of war, sacrifice and sustenance.

Msg event.pngBlood Sacrifice

Human energy is sent skyward and we receive divine power in return when we make a blood sacrifice. The king uses an obsidian knife or a stingray spine to cut his penis, allowing the blood to fall onto paper held in bowls. The queen pulls a rope with thorns attached through her tongue. The paper stained with blood is burned and the rising smoke communicates with the Sky World.

Msg event.pngCycle of Creation and Destruction

Our stories and myths tell of repeating cycles of creation and destruction which are reminders of the consequences that will happen if humans ever neglect their obligations to the gods. We have a responsibility to the gods who make our continued existence possible. The gods and other forces of creation and chaos fight each 52-year period which may bring the destruction of the worlds. If we ignore our duty to the gods, the battle between them that determines the fate of all earthly creatures might not end in our favor.

Msg event.pngHero Twins

A dream about the Hero twins, who were conceived when their mother spoke to a severed head who spat upon her hand. That severed head was their father, who together with his brother was summoned to Xibalba after their ball game had disturbed the peace of the Lords of the Underworld. The twins had many adventures before they themselves were summoned to Xibalba as their ball game disturbed the lords once again. The dream was about the many trials the twins faced before they reached the Lords of the Underground, and how they managed to defeat the lords. The dream ended when the twins transformed into the sun and moon which is a sign that a new age is beginning.

Msg event.pngSacrificial Traditions

It is time to decide how we should sacrifice the human offerings and there are several different ways to choose from. Decapitation, heart extraction, arrow sacrifice, disembowelment or throwing the offering into a cenote. What should we choose? The decapitation of the offering is done in a ritual reenactment of the decapitation of the Maya maize god by the Maya death gods, while the heart extraction is inspired by the Aztecs. The heart is pulled out while it is still beating, blood smeared upon the image of the temple's deity and the corpse skinned. The arrow sacrifice begins with the offering being painted blue with a white symbol over its chest, then bound to a stake during a ritual dance while wearing a peaked cap. Blood is drawn and smeared upon the deity's image and the dancers then takes turn shooting arrows at the offering until its whole chest is filled with arrows. Disembowelment is a slower death but not as elaborate, a sacrifice is bound to a stake with his hands tied behind his head and then disemboweled. The offerings can also be thrown into our Sacred Cenote.

Msg event.pngIxtab

Our country is suffering and our priests have started suggesting that honoring Ixtab would be a good idea. Rope Woman, as she is also called, is the goddess of suicide and will accompany those who die by hanging to paradise. It is an honorable way to die and those who choose it will join people who died as soldiers or as sacrificial victims, women who died in childbirth and members of the priesthood. These enjoy a delectable existence and are rewarded with delicious food and drink. Wouldn't it be preferable to the chaos your country is currently experiencing, to rest instead under the shade of a pleasant tree, free from all want?
