Part 5 - My UnBecoming: Why I'm Uniquely Unimportant


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 – persons of wisdom and power who live free of fear and abide in their eternal nature, Homo luminous. The Rites of the Munay-Ki transform and upgrade your luminous energy field. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past-the karmic & genetic programs and beliefs you inherited.  They re-inform your DNA, enabling you to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently.


These rites are not only stages of initiation, but perhaps steps for the evolution of humanity. As nations fight for bits of territory and battle over land, we must find the wisdom to create peace among all peoples. As our space telescopes show us images of a vast and immeasurable Universe, we must find a human story that is inclusive of the stars. And as our ability to destroy the world increases, we are called to step up to the task of assuming stewardship for all creation.


In essence, the rites are about stewardship. They are not ego-awards or recognition of any kind of achievement, nor do they make anyone special. On the contrary, they make one uniquely unimportant. Only then, from a position of no-ego, can we truly be of service.”


“The Munay-Ki is your invitation to dream an entire new world into being.” – (Alberto Villoldo, founder)



Was I ready to become uniquely unimportant?


I was willing to try.


Here’s the thing. In my Reiki+SR sessions, I had already come to this realisation. If I could empty myself of ‘self-centeredness’ during sessions, allow the light to work through me without the judgement of what I thought should happen, it was effortless and filled with gifts. There was very little stress on me, no need for promises.


It felt wonderful!


When we are the ‘hollow bone’ for the light, there is infinite wisdom and healing available. Why settle for my limited ability when the Divine is ready to support in all its creative genius? When I released attachment to the outcome, the process became pure and simple.


So yes, I wanted more than anything to become uniquely unimportant. To be filled with divine light is something that is unlike anything I have ever experienced - a communing with the Universe in all its complexity.


Floating amongst stars.

Becoming one with the flow of clear blue rivers.

Responding to the ancient call of Ancestors.


My heart pounds just at the thought of it.




I signed up right away. Something called me. Perhaps the Earth Keepers of yore? I was already finding in my work that the Ancestors were stepping forward to help release emotional lineage legacies.


To heal the traumas of their pasts.


Yup, it’s a thing.


What’s more, I discovered a book, “It Didn’t Start with You” by Mark Wolynn which gave shape and form to these ideas which were forming through my experiences. According to the author (building off the work of the leading experts in neuroscience and posttraumatic stress), the roots of many health issues may reside in the traumas of our parents, grandparents and beyond.


The latest research affirms traumatic experience is passed on to future generations.


Patterns of trauma repeating.

Stories lodged in our brains. Hard wired into our very being.


Patterns we become stuck in and no matter what we do, we cannot seem to escape. What's more, we may not be aware of this connection. What if it’s more than 'karma'? What if it's a complex matrix of karma and lineage legacies woven into our energy body?


This is different than genetics. It's about the STORY that was never acknowledged, the pain and suffering that was hidden in fear, shame, guilt and denial. The story that must be acknowledged so that patterns do not continue to repeat in future generations.




The Ancestors winked in knowing.



I have to admit the Rites were a beautiful experience. I’m still not sure what happened, to be honest it was a bit surreal.


During one of the first few Rites, I was lying on the massage table to receive the 7 Archetypes in my chakras. My feet started tingling right away, as the seeds were planted, I could feel the energy course through me. When the practitioner reached my solar plexus, I gasped in surprise.


A great bear rose up before me, with a fiercely protective growl, he sank down into my belly. Merging with me. My power animal had finally shown himself. As I committed to this journey and my unbecoming, he committed fully to walking beside me.


It was a reverent feeling this union of bear spirit and myself. Polar bear, brown bear and rainbow hued bear merged all at once.


Since that day, he often appears in my Reiki+SR sessions. I sense his presence and feel the energy as his great paw releases nets of programming that no longer serve my client’s highest and greatest good. The Ancestors’ voices merge with his. Supporting. Releasing. Honouring.


I could never have imagined this possible to be honest, this story that continues to unfold as I unbecome and help others to unbecome as well. Freed from the shackles of stagnant energy, patterns of trauma and … freedom awaits.


It isn’t easy this path of unbecoming. Sometimes it sears me to the bone as I shed layers of beliefs and programming that have held me for aeons, coaxing them to release. Melting, burning, flowing back in time. I'm left hollow and empty, but freed.


Held by the ancestors.

Protected by Bear.

Illuminated by Spirit.

Reassured by Noah.


Noah holds my hand as we walk forward together, for he's taught me that I am not leaving him behind. He moves with me, he is of me - part of my bones and my lineage. Forever are we intertwined in love and Grace.


I hear his voice merge and blend seamlessly with our Ancestors, his spirit dancing wildly, free and untamed.




Sending love and light to all,

    What an inspiring blog. Thank you for sharing so eloquently! I can so relate to the realization that it is up to us to help bring the sorrows of the past to the light for the ancestors. This was my discovery as I wrote “Cosmic Door”. All the events, experiences and relationships over my lifetime merged and revealed my life purpose. I am honoured and humbled to accept this challenge and heal the past so my ancestors can skip joyously into the light.

      Thank you so much Margie! I love the amazing synchronicity that has brought us together to explore this spiritual path with our ancestors. xo

    “Hold it together, stay focussed, hang on, stick it out”… this is the energy that keeps the gerbil cage of life going. Offering an “ unbecoming experience “ unravels a tightly wound spiral of coulds, shoulds and woulds to experience a new reality, one where new tapestries weave as old habits dissolve. Thank you Dawn for creating this vision of possibility to guide me.

      You’re part of this vision, we all are. It’s painful and messy but about 20 pounds lighter lol Thank you for joining me on this journey as we all ‘unbecome’ together, moving towards a new tapestry of light and interconnectedness. xo
