Invoking The Nine Mayan Gods At Tikal

by Bob Makransky

The entire Mayan area of Guatemala and southern Mexico is so thoroughly imbued with the spirit of the Mayan spirits, that even an interloping tourist can easily make a connection to the Mayan spirit world for him or herself. Every Mayan town has sacred places – usually nearby mountaintops or caves – which ooze energy and are used by the locals to invoke spirits and perform healings (just ask anyone in a Mayan town where to find the local power spots. You can often hire a local priest to perform a ceremony for you, if you like; just ask around. Mayan priests are delighted to have foreigners at their ceremonies, and patiently explain Mayan beliefs and culture to people who are interested). One power place not far off the beaten path is located just off the road to the popular tourist attraction Lake Atitlan. Visitors should check out the small cave located just beneath the scenic lookout point in Aldea San Jorge (on the road between Solola and Panajachel), which is a deep cleft in the rocks used by local priests for ceremonies and invocations; and which commands a stunning view of the lake and volcanoes.
