During the Mayan Cosmovision workshop I blogged about  yesterday there was a lot of talk about "synchronization".

1. The Galactic Synchronization which is a fundamental change that the solar system will experience, in 2012, after finishing crossing the Galactic Beam. A  milestone that will mark the beginning of a new era of the cosmic conscience expanded through a synchronization to a higher elevated Galactic Intelligence, a quantic leap to a next dimension.

2. Synchronization: the coordination of events for something to take place and the connection of your inner world with the connection of the present..

Any way.....

What one of the friends I was with said at the end of the workshop was "after all this synchronization talk I am craving some SINCRONIZADAS!!!"

So the next day I decided I would make some for lunch, introducing them for the first time to my girls.

Sincronizada Casserole Recipe:

One layer of corn tortillas, hand made with Maseca
One layer of ham
One layer of yellow cheese
Repeat the layering
Finish with a layer of tortillas 
Pour 1/2 liter Pomi sauce
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese

Put in the oven at 350F degrees for 20 minutes.

So there. I hope this dish will get your taste buds in sync!!!

Yesterday I was part of the workshop "Creer es Crear" with Santiago and Tisa  Pando..... WOW!

It was a first but a deep first real exposure to the Mayan Vision  but not at an academic level but at a personal level.  I AM SO HAPPY TO BE HERE (Guatemala, Mayan World), NOW (2012)!!

Right now it is to soon to tell you more about this I think I will learn more through time. But I want to leave you with  Santiagos, Tisas and Daniel's first movie. You can watch it online or download it at

I also want to share some of my notes from yesterday:

  • The mayans are creational society
  • They live at a a higher vibratory frequency
  • Resurge the heart as the meeting point of men.
  • The citizen revolution will cristalize in latinamerica
  • the spiritual focal point of the world will be the Mayan world
  • The union of both hemispheres is "to believe is to create"
  • One hemisphere elevates us the other one connects us to the earth to our ancestors.
  • The macro universe is that with in the micro universe is the one we see.
  • Be responsible 360 degrees.
  • We are artists not actors

Nony or Guanoni is a fruit believe to cure diabetis. It is highly anti-oxidant, slowing the aging process. Its is believed to have been brought to America from India as a medicinal plant.
The nony tree in the picture is in Izabal at the entrance of the Siete Altares waterfalls.

You can now find Nony or Guanoni extract at supermarkets thanks to a Guatemalan couple who in 2005 applied to a USAID funding to start a Guanoni plantation and processing plant. Three hundred sixty projects were presented and this was one of the twelve selected.

Something big is coming soon...

So reads the sign at Hiper Paiz the biggest Guatemalan chain that was bought by Walmart a bit over 5 years ago. What is coming? A big Walmart sign... Friday Hiper Paiz will officially become Walmart!

I remember my grandmother telling me how she recalled the first store of Mr. Carlos Paiz a store where he first started selling thread and ribbons and to then become a retail empire in Guatemala. His story was published in the book La historia de Carlos Paiz. Un hombre de Guatemala

 It is somewhat nostalgic to know such an iconic name will now remain for a few years in the memory of some generations, then as a story told by grandma, to then disappear. Wisely Walmart did the transitions patiently. No big announcements were made when it was purchased, about a year later the employees started wearing badges that said Walmart, they started the always low prices policy, they slowly changed the look and feel, new stores looked more like Walmart but they were still Paiz and now I shall update over the weekend this post with the Walmart sign.

We used to live in the Boulder, where Walmart is banned. I used to drive 40 minutes to go to a Walmart. When we lived in Kansas from Baldwin City to the closest super Walmart it was also about a 40 minute drive. People thought that was to much driving for a Walmart and I said "well when I lived in Guatemala I had to take a plane to go to Walmart". Going to Walmart was a highlight in any trip to the US. Now they are officially here in Guatemala close to home....
