AND THE EARTH SPOKE by María José Ruíz

Still it wasn’t 7 o'clock in the morning when the event organization began. There was a suppressed emotion, a respect for work, a solemnity difficult to describe. All of we wanted to give our best effort, the day had come.

Jaime explained everything that was necessary to do, he organized the work groups and gave precise instructions to the ones in charge of every task: guards, flowers, people’s distribution according to their energy, offerings, Inca’s ritual, interventions, music , seats, altars, pearls, attention to the visitors, sound for the event, … everything was foreseen.

56 women take down hundreds of flowers of 7 colors to defoliate, with conscience, their petals. The air filled with fragrances, with light, with sacred singings. Erika, a shaman with an angelical voice, was marking us the rhythm. The sound of the drum joined to our voices and the light was every time more beautiful. With all the colors mixed, the ways and geometric figures that give the structure to the place get drown and next, we open an energy vortex with the ASPERSORES that Jaime's students had taken; there were exactly 30 ASPERSORES, exactly the number that the Masters had designated, the magic was clear in each one of the steps.

In those moments, the element water appeared: the rain came to greet us, in answer to our request for help which was formulated days before in El Yunque (Puerto Rico), in the banks of a river. We had sung to the water, each one from his own feeling had sent love messages, energy hearts so that our message get to the birds, to the sea, to the clouds, to the trees, to all the corners: "The Mother Earth needs us, we are prepared but we need help, we are only the top of the firing pin, we need more force to get to the Earth’s center, go and tell it to everybody, the 24th, will be a big day for all, we will wait you”

The air also visited us: Moments before the rain, a flock of birds, approximately 14, had turned in circles around us, many times, … we felt blessed.

When everything was prepared, we got dressed in our best finery, of white and a red belt, as the Mayan way. Each one knew perfectly what we had to do and which was our place. We come to the precinct and there were already more than 100 people waiting at the door. We needed 300 people: Would we get it? Three women with incense burners received them one by one and surrounding them in incense and with amiability, we gave them the welcome. Nobody make any strange face when they saw us with our clothes or refused to receive the cleanliness with copal; then, about 30 people of our group were accompanying them to their seats and speaking to them tenderly; we were the hosts and we wanted that they feel welcome with love.

I was surprised to see how every person who has come, brought a big smile. They did not stop in thanking to us and always were smiling, smiling, with an overflowing happiness. They were coming to a holiday and that was their attitude.

The starting hour was close and the line didn’t finish … 720 people had come to the call, including the priest of the Monticello Parish, its community, women and men of all the ages, many young people, people in wheelchairs, we couldn’t believe it, the expectations had been fully fulfilled. Then, Jaime confirmed that there also were more than 30.000 persons celebrating ceremonies around the world, and that 22 countries already were part of the OPEN YOUR HEART Movement. How is it possible to explain that in only 50 days it had turned into an extraordinary world event? The radio and the television in Mexico, the press in Bogota, e-mails, mobile messages, thousands of people know that today it is the day of the heart and they are going to celebrate it.

At 8:00 a.m. Jaime begins to explain how this magic adventure had begun a few months behind and which was its Mission. And he ended up by saying: “Never before so many depended on so few”. He asked to all of us to take our hands to join our forces and to move the energy, to create a powerful spiral that he would lead up to the center of the earth. An harangue was given to all the warriors there gathered, it spoke to an Army of Light, it shouted, begging for more and more force and the energy rose and went down again. We tried it 3 times. When it already seemed that it was impossible and we all were on the point of getting weak, he shouted again: Come on, come on! A little more! The Earth needs you, you cannot retire! Invoke the force of 30.000 people who are sending all their energy! Open your heart, let it go, throw it, and leave your last breath, give your life if it is necessary, it is the last opportunity and only you can get it. Loudly!! Quickly!!

In that moment, a small buzz that was rising and rising began, more and more loudly each time, more and more vibrant, it seemed that thousands of bees had joined to the ceremony. Our arms seemed to be shaken by an electric current, we felt the force of our partners; we couldn’t go on any more.

And suddenly, a wave of love, only comparable with the warm hug of a mother, was felt by each one of 720 people who were taking part in the ceremony. It was such a kind energy, so sweet that we almost lost concentration letting ourselves be carried by so wonderful experience. We give in to this caress and feel the creative force of the energy that was rising from the ground up to our feet, surrounding our whole body. The sensation was only comparable to that moment when we come home, after a long period and to feel the love of your mother surrounding you with her arms and kissing you in your cheek, that place where you feel save, safe, and where you know that anything and nobody can hurt you, where there is only LOVE.

I will never forget this moment. I thank life, the Mother Earth, the Universe, God, the Spirit and also Jaime for having had the privilege of living that moment. That the magic and love always be with us!

From heart to heart
