Mysterious Mayan visitor

STEELE CODDINGTON For several weeks we have received anonymous reports of a dark skinned, middle aged man wearing clerical type vestments praying toward the setting sun on top of Black Mountain. Other witnesses have spotted the same man on top of the Boulders rocks in Carefree on the 21st day of each month, accompanied by a small grey haired lady in pigtails.

To investigate, I took my dog Arbuckle with me last month on the 21st, to see if we could find the mysterious couple. We posted ourselves at the only logical path to the top of the boulders and waited. Sure enough, as the light receded, picking their way through the boulders, the mysterious couple stopped abruptly when they came upon us. When we smiled and greeted them, they moved toward us. Arbuckle darted quickly to the man with a strange familiarity and the man embraced him with unexpected emotion. While they hugged, I asked the lady if I could help in any way. She understood and responded in English with a strange Spanish accent, and explained that her companion was her son who only spoke the language of the Mayan people which was still used in their existing settlements. She continued, “We are from a Mayan village near Chichen Itza on the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. My son is a Mayan priest. I learned English in a hospital in the nearby town of Valladolid. My son is Ikob and I am Stellar.” It was getting late but she promised to meet us at the same spot tomorrow, and then they disappeared into the darkness.

The next day we met again and Stellar informed us that they were guests of a very wealthy archeologist whom she would only refer to as “the doctor” who lived in the Boulder Community. Her son had saved the doctor’s life when he was severely injured while exploring the archaeology site Cenote Sagrado, a huge sacred sacrificial sinkhole near Chichen Itza. She nursed the doctor back to good health and in appreciation, he insisted they come and visit him here so he could create a trust for them. She quoted her son as saying in response, “Our gods will smile upon us if we go to the doctor’s country so we can warn them of the true meaning of our Mayan calendar.”

Ah yes, the Mayan calendar – subject here to fears and controversy involving the long-count 365 day calendar which ends the 5,000 year cycle on December 21st of 2012. Many regard that date as part of the doomsday scenario and end of the world. No, Stellar informed me, her son’s extensive communications on top of the boulders with the Maise god, Sun god, Moon goddess, Ixtah, goddess of suicide, and especially AhPuch, god of the Underworld aligned with Mayan priests who imposed taxes, convinced him that the catastrophe predicted is not on December 21st, but could be on November 6th, 2012. Their unanimous predictions indicated that on the November date, if a certain ruler in North America succeeds himself as ruler and omnipotent one, the collapse of society could match the demise of the ancient Mayan civilization.

She explained that Ikob must leave shortly to go to the temple of Kuhulkan for the vernal equinox annual blood letting. But they would return in April to help console the doctor from what he described as a blood-letting on April 15th by a tax collector worse than AhPuch. Stellar pointed at Arbuckle and said, “Ikob’s affection stems from Mayan belief that every living person has an animal companion spirit and they are connected as “co-essences,” linked as soul companions.”

“Do you believe all this?” I asked Arbuckle. “Yes,” he replied. “What we heard is from the proverbial Horse god’s mouth and if our ruler succeeds himself on November 6th, it could be the sinkhole for us.”
