In this episode, Jhaimy introduces the Andean principle of Illawy. While this principle is perhaps most simply described as parity or partnership, Jhaimy shows us how Illawy helps to shape our reality. Illawy helps us to remember “the origins of everything” and can support our understanding of how our intentions and feelings give rise to our experiences. Integrating this principle helps us to transform and transmute any intentions that may not be in harmony with what we want to receive in life.
“The Ancestors always say, “Be a little more aware of what motivates you to create things in your life.”
“My master says one day to me, “Who you are to judge yourself? And who you are to judge others? You do the things that you need to do because it's already things that you need to learn. So don't be so hard with you because whatever you do in life is what you need to learn. And this is the Illawy. This is what this medicine...
In this episode, Jhaimy talks about the sacred journeys that he leads in Peru and explains why he calls them a “pilgrimage”. In older times, such trips to these temples and Andean sites would have been much more difficult to make than today, and so Jhaimy helps us to understand the sacrality and symbology in these places, while also guiding us to walk with deep reverence on these paths to honour both the Ancestors and ourselves. As a Traditional Curandero, he guides these journeys to not only share his wisdom about these sacred spaces, but to help people to transform and transmute their perceptions, ideas, and feelings along the way; to see their current lives with new eyes. When we travel in a sacred way to these sites and temples, we transform and transmute ourselves, and we are more open to recognizing our day-to day lives as an ongoing sacred journey – a pilgrimage for our soul.
“We do this journey in a sacred way, and we live in a...
In this episode, Jhaimy describes the Andean vibration of the Allin Kausay (living in a good way), and how it compares to typical human patterns which may be more commonly associated with a difficult way of living. He offers guidance for healing our hearts, and our world, through awareness and appreciation of the gifts that Mother Earth and the Cosmos provide us with every day. We are reminded to walk on our paths gently, humbly, and with compassion for others along the way, and when in doubt – pray, sing, and connect with the roots of life. LISTEN NOW
“Maybe you don’t need to know. Maybe just trust. Have faith in the eyes of your feet. Let your feet guide you, on your path back home.”
“Be humble. Remember that sometimes you made the same mistakes.”
In this episode, Jhaimy shares the Andean perspective on how we can use our own personal symbology to assist in our experiences of Dreamtime. Whether it’s using the 4 elements or allowing an animal totem to “eat you”, he encourages us to remember the power that we have to create within our dreams and the importance of the correct interpretation to guide us deeper on our dreaming journeys.
“Because it's your world, because it's your reality, you have the power. Maybe one of the most fantastic and beautiful powers that exists - you are free to create whatever you like.”
“Every single dream has something to teach, so learn. But also remember; it’s your world, it’s your reality, it’s your own space.”
In this episode, Jhaimy describes the Andean social structure known as the Ayllu. The Ayllu is both a chosen spiritual family and a community of shared practice. People come together to support each other through day-to-day life and the processes of Yachay (Sacred Learning) and Llanquay (Sacred Work). Within this community, all experiences are shared energetically and held sacred.
“When somebody is sick, all of the community is sick, but when somebody arrives to another point of view, another reality, or learns something amazing, the community also energetically arrives to this space more quickly.”
“In the Andean tradition, when you live in a community, you need to be responsible and be more impeccable with your ideas, with your feelings, because this is going to help you and everyone – all of your Ayllu, all your spiritual family.”
In this episode, Jhaimy shares the Andean wisdom of Pacha – time and space; “…two beautiful vibrations that move together”, with a focus on how we experience time. Today, we commonly view the past as behind us, and the future as being ahead of us. However, in Andean traditions, the future lives behind us, unseen and unknown. The past, on the other hand, is seen as in front of us; it is what we must face, learn from, and walk through each day. When we see our past in front of us and learn to witness, embrace, and learn from our patterns, then we will have the insight to make better choices and create a more peaceful, harmonious life.
““One of my elders said something beautiful. ‘Study your past, and in this way, you’re going to live a better present and call a better future’. And maybe this is a big medicine.”
“When you are in peace with you, everything is fantastic. Everything’s going to be OK,...
In this episode, Jhaimy introduces the Andean concept of Ñyo Kan Kani (I Am Me). He shares that one of the main sicknesses for humanity today is the need for “understanding”. Ñyo Kan Kani is not simply understanding yourself, but it is an action; a relationship that goes beyond knowing yourself and looks deeper at how you act in relationship with yourself, and how you hold yourself in this relationship. While we may not have the capacity to understand ourselves, or our full reality, we can accept that we exist and respect who we are – I Am Me. This relationship with ourselves, between I and Me, then leads us to a greater ability to live in harmony with the “we”.
“Who are we to understand everything? Accept - And when you accept that you exist, when you accept your Ñyo Kan Kani – or that I am me - you are beginning to create a relationship between me and I.”
“When you live in a beautiful...
In this episode Jhaimy reflects on the meaning of love and how as human beings we are always in search of this seemingly abstract idea. He shares that in the Andes there is a Quechua word - Munay - which is one of the Seven Andean Principles that embraces the energy of sweetness, beauty, love and magic in the same moment. He explains how each of these aspects of Munay provides a step to enter into the doorway to experience this energy in its fullness.
"In the Andean tradition love is one step that we need to walk in our way of finding and expressing Munay.”
“Munay is such a big and beautiful medicine that teaches us how to embrace in a beautiful way everything, or all our relations, in the conscious and unconscious way.”
“Munay is an energy that moves in four steps. These four steps are four different realities or windows, doors that bring communion. The union of all of the different parts, pieces, realities of your life. And it also brings communion to all...
In this episode, Jhaimy responds to a question that has been asked of him many times over the years. How important is it to have a physical teacher or can we explore spirituality on our own? He dives deeper into this question and shares his perspective and experience.
“More important than the ceremonies or the experience that we live is the interpretation of what we lived and what is the message there.”
“The Ancestors have already been walking and exploring spirituality in such a deep, deep way.”
“There is the easy way and the correct way.”
In this episode Jhaimy shares Andean teachings as connected to the concept of Illusions and feelings of separation. He offers wisdom from his Elders and from his personal path that will support listeners in better understanding how this energy works in our lives and how it can be transformed.
“We don’t need to seek anything outside, maybe what we need to do is to look deep within ourselves.”
“Share your essence, share who you are, share your heart.”
“Whatever I do for me, immediately I do for humanity. First for my family, second for my community and third for all the humanity. And fourth, for nature, for Mother Earth and for the Cosmos. It is something we forget because of our feelings of separation.”
“If you are clear in your process, if you find clarity, you will create a healthy relationship with everyone and everything around you.”
“Remember that life is simple but complex in the same moment. And that maybe when you...
