Teachings by Grandmother Armadillo Rojo: Part 2- Spiritual Body


Please consider supporting Saq’ Be’, a nonprofit organization, as we finalize plans for many new programs in this, our 20th year.

We thank our spirit which is our essence for its existence, we ask it for forgiveness for the  many times we do not pay attention to it, for the times we have not cleansed it, nurtured it with meditations, music, scents, etc.


Element air

We will wash our hands and then we will speak to them, tell them that they will release the negative energy from our spirit. We will begin at our head, as if we were dusting with our hands, then we will shake them towards the floor to release the energy. We will clean our nape, arms, torso, legs and feet.

Element fire

Taking an unlit candle, begin to pass it all around your body, asking the candle to pick up any spiritual sickness or traumas etc. Then light the candle so that the fire can consume all the negative energies.


Earth element

Purchase an incense and light it, allowing the aroma of the earth to enter into our spirit, we visualize how the spirals of the incense penetrate our bodies, filling it up with positive energy, the aroma of the earth.

Water element

With a perfume or essential oil, place one drop on each of the 13 articulations of our body, internally as well as externally, feeling the aroma penetrate all of our body .


As we move deeply into this age of visible consequence, the turbulence of our time provides incredible challenges for maintaining one’s internal equilibrium and balance within the world.  To help us navigate these rough seas with more grace, Armadillo Rojo has generously shared a four part process for clearing obstacles and reinvigorating our being. We will publish the series in four parts, featuring a new body (mental, spiritual, emotional, material) each week. We encourage you to participate in the exercises as described, and hope that it may help you to find balance and well being in this time when our collective strength is being called forth. We also express our deepest gratitude for the sharing of these timely teachings with us all.

Grandmother Red Armadillo begins her guidance to a balanced and stronger life, so that we can cleanse our energy from negativity, fear and anxiety caused by the pandemic or by any other problem we might be facing and which brings weakness.

These small rituals have been created based on the principles of the Maya Cosmovision; the gratefulness, the forgiveness, the cleansing and the saturation to find a balance in our life. The rituals in Maya Culture are done for different causes, illnesses, yearly cleansings, cleansing of a great problem, etc. They take place in steam baths, crystalline and calm rivers, fast-flowing rivers, the sea shore, at the foot of a mountain, in caves, at Sacred Places, etc.  In this case I have adapted the rituals to the modern life in the cities so that at these times that all humanity is going through a crisis, these can be used to improve the energy of the person, family, community, work, city, etc. so that we gradually acquire the energy to live in balance.

In the Maya world there are 4 bodies, we will cleanse each of through four rituals and elements in nature. We have to choose a space and time in which we will not be interrupted while doing these healing rituals. The first two are for cleansing and the last two to capture energy and become strong.
