Day-33-Sun.-16/12/18- It is now 5:52 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that has unfolded in front of our eyes during the past twenty hours. We just got through reading an update from the honorary consul of Guatemala in Martinique. Brother Sébastien mentioned that he was able to sit on the same “table” with the prime minister of St Lucia.
From our Spiritual point of view, today is Day-33 on our calendar and Day- 40 will fall on Sunday, the 23rd December 2018. Between now and then, we hope to put together the first episode of Chapter X111.
Day-40-Sun.23/12/18-It is now 5:21 in the morning and has thinking about some of the events that has been unfolding in front of our eyes lately. The past seven days has been some of the most mysterious days of what we believe Chapter X111 will be about. Today is the 23rd December 2018 and it is Day-40 on our calendar and so far we have manage to document fifteen pages since the 4th October 2018 and now exceeding 6,153 words.
“Words” can compromise a person, or a group based on what the person or group is saying, from our point of view, it becomes more interesting when the “words” that are being revealed to us, has a source we believe is Spiritual. It will be ten years on the 21st February 2019 since we started blogging about Garifuna Spirituality from the “eyes” of a Garifuna who has been residing in Labuga Livingston Guatemala for the past seventeen years.
Here we are today, but before we continue, first and foremost we want to give thanks and praise to the universe for its intervention in our affairs. We want to thank each and every one that has managed to be here at this point and time. In this case, the seed, the soil and the farmers are coming together for the cultivation of unity.
The Garifuna Nation in Guatemala is cultivating the Spirit of unity for the Christmas Holiday 2018 and we would like for you to know that it will be at your door steps waiting for you on Christmas Day.

Day-10- Fri.-23/11/18- It is now 2:30 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that has unfolded in front of our eyes for the past five days. Therefore, for the past five days, we have been thinking about a moment like this, you see, we have been wondering about how to connect this moment with a historic event that will come to past in the next three days.
But for this to make sense we would like to share the following attachment with our readers and the world at large. But before you open this document, we want to give thanks and praise for the intervention of the Áharis, in this case, Brother Salvador Suazo.
Day-12- Sun.25/11/18-It is now 6:00 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that unfolded in front of our eyes during the past couple days, the 23rd November 2018 will be A Day that our Spiritual Leader, Marcos Sanchez Diaz had set aside for us to remember him and what he stood for. His Spirit was able to lead us to a place where you can feel him, touch him and drink him. On the other hand, we were able to visit the cave in Gangadiwali Labuga Livingston Guatemala for a Garifuna Ritual, and it gave us a new meaning to the term Sacred Places.
The high light of our day yesterday, November 24, 2018 was to meet with Brother Sébastien and his guest, he is back to Labuga after seven months and five days to continue the struggle with us, it has been a struggle with the present administration of the Municipality of Livingston Guatemala since the 1st of December 2016, and continues today.
Today however, will be our day to set the seed, A Seed that is more than two hundred and twenty-one years old. The Garifuna Nation has managed to sustain friendly relationships with the brothers and sisters in the Caribbean and France, way before April 12, 1797, and we would like our readers and the world at large to know that the relationship continues today.
Day-14-Tues.27/11/18-It is now 6:12 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that has unfolded in front of our eyes during the past twenty four hours, therefore the “seed” that was set in Labuga Livingston Guatemala on the 25th November 2018 is now two days old, our relationship as a Nation with the embassy of France in Guatemala is now in the form of a Spiritual Seed and it is on its way to the country of Belize.
The embassy of France in Guatemala will also have an embassy in the country of Belize sometime in the near future and we would like to share with our readers and world at large that we have started cultivating the seed. A Spiritual Seed, in this case is not an easy concept to grasp, but if we can see any thought in the form of a seed then we are on the right track. A “thought” can be seen in the form of a Seed. A Spiritual Seed in this context is related with a Spiritual Journey that began in the State of California at the University of Loyola during the 4th July celebration in 1992 and continues today.

Day-20-Fri. 14/9/18- It is now 5:23 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that has been unfolding in front our eyes for the past four days and came to the conclusion that our trials and tribulations will the strength of our Triumph. Our trials and tribulations is a part of the book that we have been sharing with our readers and the world for quite some time now and we would like for them to know that we will be on Diriwana’s Table today to sit with the Áharis so they can show us the way to the Healing of the Soul.
Day-21-Sat.15/9/18-It is now 6:31 in the morning and have been thinking about some of the events that unfolded in front of our eyes while we in Gangadiwali Labuga Livingston Guatemala. While we were on Diriwana’s Table yesterday we found out from the Áharis that “healing” is a process that starts from within. It is a journey in search of destiny. It is a journey toward the Healing of the Soul.
In this case, if you are a first-time reader, we would like to welcome you with a Garifuna word we believe is Spiritual. “Inei” for us is a way to open the doors of “heaven” for you. We have been sharing with our readers about a Spiritual Journey through the “eyes” of a Garifuna who has been living in Labuga Livingston Guatemala for the past seventeen years. A little over ten years ago, a small group of brothers and sisters found something in common that has kept us going through what we believe is some of the most challenging moments in the history of the Garifuna Nation in Guatemala.
Day-25- Wed.19/9/21-It is now 6:04 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that has unfolded in front our eyes for the past three days. Brother Leo Sanchez from Punta Gorda Belize shared with us three days ago about the transition of our Brother and friend from Dangriga. Joe, as we know him is on his way to be with the Ancestors and we are certain that he will intervene on our behalf.
On the other hand we were on Diriwana’s Table yesterday and was able to feel the “healing” that is in process. A healing process we believe Guatemala is yearning for more than ever. We would like our readers and the world to know that we are desperate for your prayers for Guatemala to heal. The Land of eternal springs is in the eyes of a political storm that is now a category five.
Day-28-Sat.22/9/18-It is now 5:44 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that has unfolded in front of our eyes for the past seven days and came to the conclusion that “prayers” can heal the soul. Healing of the Soul is now a “Prayer” that was sealed on Diriwana’s Table by the Áharis in Gangadiwali yesterday.
Yesterday, a revelation was revealed to us by Áharis, like Martin Luther King, Madiba, Marcos Sanchez Diaz, Barauda, Joseph Chatoyer, Booker T Washington, Marcos Garvey, Diriwana and so many others to choose the “Tree” that will seal the deal with a “Soul” we believe is going to be a part of the healing process in Guatemala.
Today is September 22nd 2018, and would like to share a message with our readers and the world we believe is worth taking a second look. This message was first published on the 30th April 2017, here is a cut and paste from Spiritual Eyes that goes like this.
“The mahogany Tree that was chosen to pay tribute and honor to Dr. King on the 4th April 2017 is looking good and healthy. It was forty nine years after the assassination of Dr. King in 1968 that has brought you [Ambassador Todd Robinson] to La Buga Guatemala exactly two years ago today. He wants you to know that he is keeping an open eye on you.”

Day-1-Tuesday-17/7/18-It is now 3:50 in the morning and has been thinking about an event that will unfold in front of our eyes tomorrow. Tomorrow will be one hundred years since Nelson Mandela was born and here we are thinking about what Gangadiwali will be one hundred years from tomorrow.
Garifuna Heritage Park in Gangadiwali, Labuga Livingston will celebrate and honor the birth date of Rolihlahla which is his birth name, which means trouble maker in the English language. In this case we have been nurturing a Mahogany Tree for the past year for a moment like the one we are expecting tomorrow. Tomorrow will be history in the making at Gangadiwali that our readers and the world should know about.
On the other hand yesterday was Day-40 and we were in Gangadiwali on a “Spiritual Mission” and came to the conclusion that our struggle continues, for example we have been having problems with the electrical companies in Labuga Livingston Guatemala for more than twenty years and we have not manage to find a solution for the expensive and meager service the company is providing us, sometimes leaving the communities without electric energy for days in a row.
There is a Town Board meeting scheduled for today at 10:00 in the morning and we are planning to attend. We hope to attend our second meeting regarding our problems with the electrical company at the head-quarters of the actual Mayor of Labuga Livingston and would like to informed our readers, the world at large and our mayor and the electrical company that according to the declaration of the United Nations in relations to our human rights as an indigenous group, is being violated and we are ready to look for a permanent solutions.
In a previous meeting with the Town Board members, at the head quarters of the mayor we managed to mention that “We” the Garifuna Nation in Guatemala would like to continue the process of a friendship and cooperation relationship with the neighboring country of Belize that we began at the mayor’s office on 21st June 2018 and would like to investigate the possibilities of getting our electrical service from Belize.
Day-4-Fri. 20/7/19-It is now 7:14 in the morning and have been thinking about some of the events that are unfold in front of our eyes because we just got through reading Unfolding, it was a message that was revealed to us on the 24th July 2012, it this case if our readers and the world would like to take a deeper look, you are more than welcome to visit our blog-garifunareality
Another document that unfolded in front of our eyes this morning, is a document that we have had in our hands since the 8th July 2008 and have had the opportunity to put it in the hands of our actual Mayor Miguel Rax twice in ten years and now we are looking forward to the third time which will fall on Day-8- Tuesday 24th July 2018. In this case, our readers and the world will be our witness to the “truth.”
Before we continue we would like our readers and the world to understand that the events that are unfolding in front of our eyes are not designed for the naked eyes to see, if we had seen this coming ten years ago, things would have been different today, but be that as it may, we are here today to thank you, for being here to “see” for yourself.
Wednesday, May 30, 2018
Day-24-Mon.21/5/18-It is now in the morning and just got through experiencing something mystical for the first time and would like to share in details our experience sometime in the near future, but more importantly we would like to share with our readers and the world today about how it all began. It was revealed to us through one of the albums that we have stocked in our archives over the years. Our eyes came across a news paper clipping that caught our attention. Our attention was caught because it came with a message from Brother Humbe that was written on June 5th 2007, bear in mind that brother Humbe made his transition on April 2nd 2016.
Day-26- Wed.24/5/18-It is now in the morning and would like to continue from where we were a couple days ago and at the same time compare with where we are at this moment. In this case here is a copy from the news clipping that goes like this “Jorge Bermudez, president del Consejo Directivo de FODIGUA, manifesto que es necesario fomenter la participacion cuidadana y elevar la capacidad individuals y colectivas de los Pueblos Indigenas.”
Before we continue and if by chance that you are a first time reader, we would like for you and the world to know that your time is very precious to us. In this case, we want to give thanks and praise for the intervention of the Most High and the Spirits of the Ancestors of for a moment like this. This is a moment we believe was chosen to share with you about a Spiritual Journey that could have had its origins at an historic event that took place at the University of Loyola in Los Angeles during the first week of July 1992.
Here we are approaching twenty six years of learning, from an event we believe continues to today. Today Expectations of the Future is more than nine pages long with almost four thousand words mixed into revelations like the one we are sharing with you at this moment.
At this moment we believe that the message we are sharing with you is not a coincidence, from our Spiritual Point of View it is a consequence of all the events that has been unfolding in front of our eyes since 1992.
Day-29-Sat.26/5/18-It is now in the morning and have been thinking about some of the events that unfolded in front of our eyes during the past couple days, the event of the past couple days will put a mark on the future of the Garifuna Movements In Guatemala. The Garifuna Movements in Guatemala has evolved and has never been the same since the first official visit of Mr. Todd Robinson our ex-ambassador of the United States in Guatemala to Labuga Livingston for the first time in April 2015. We would like our readers and the world to know that your visit to Labuga has opened the eyes of the Ancestors of .
We would like for our readers and the world to know that our concept of the Ancestors of includes every Garifuna on the planet earth. It is a belief among the Garifuna Nation that it is about all for one and one for all. It is a movement that is growing and covering grounds around the world. We might have an update of the population or census of the Garifuna Nation in Guatemala hopefully before this year is over.
The Garifuna Movement in Guatemala is also a concept that is in process with relative and important issues regarding our Human Rights as an Indigenous group in the Americas. The Garifuna Nation in Guatemala is a piece of the puzzle and we are looking for our right place.
Au LeLúbara Huya.

Day-33-Fri.20/4/18-It is now 5:57 in the morning and have been thinking about some the events that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday, in this case we were able to share a message with our readers and the world we believe was right for the occasion, an occasion that is taking place for the first time in the history of Labuga Livingston. We said in so many words that there are two dates that we should never forget, the 1stDecember 2016 and the 19th April 2018. Yesterday was the second visit of Dr. Sébastien Perrot, honorable consul of Guatemala in Martinique to Labuga Livingston from the 19th April -22nd April 2018. A meeting was scheduled for eleven in the morning and from our point of view the meeting began on time and for the most part exceeded the expectations of the participants.
In conclusion, the role that the actual mayor of Labuga is playing has allowed us to shake hands with him; we would like our readers to know that it was not the first time we shook hands with our Mayor Miguel Rax, because we have shaken hands in Esquipulas in front of the image of the Cristo Negro on the 6th January 2018. However yesterday; was like the first time we did something that we believe will make a big difference.
Day-39-Thurs.-26/4/18-It is now 6:16 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that unfolded in front of our eyes during the past week. It has been an experience that will take us into the next dimension of our Spiritual Journey through the eyes of the Ancestors of Tomorrow. Tomorrow April 27th 2018 is Day-40 and the next twenty four hours will give birth to a future that is combined with the present. We are thinking about the message that we would like to share with our readers and the board members of the COMUDE today on the second floor of the Muni in Labuga Livingston sometime after nine this morning.
In this case, we would like to thank the Mayor of Labuga Livingston Miguel Rax for exceeding our expectations, in regards to the visit of Dr. Sébastien Perrot, honorable consul of Guatemala in Martinique to Labuga Livingston from the 19th April 2018 -22nd April 2018.
Day-40-Fri-27/4/18-It is now 6:05 in the morning and getting ready to be on Diriwana’s Table to analyze some of the events that are unfolding in front of eyes as we speak, it has been raining with some thunder in the background and just got through speaking on the phone with Brother Fermin about being in Gangadiwali as soon as possible.
Day-1-Sat.28/4/18-It is now 5:45 in the morning and has been thinking about some the events that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday. Yesterday was Day-40 on our calendar and the next Day- 40 will fall on Wednesday June 6th 2018, between now and then has given birth to Expectations of the Future. We were on Diriwana’s Table yesterday to share the same message with the Áharis.
In this case, our relationship with the Áharis is a direct result of the message we are sharing with our readers and the world at large. Expectations of the Future is going to be a about a Spiritual Journey from the eyes of the Ancestors of Tomorrow. From our point of view, we are the Ancestors of Tomorrow and our future depends very much on our expectations.
Day-2-29/4/18-It is now 4:14 in the morning and has been watching some of the images of the events that have unfolded in front of our eyes for the past ten days. The past ten days has been some of the most profound experience we[Lúbara Huya/Tomas Sanchez] have had in many years and we would like our readers and the world to know that [Cynda/ Catalina Sandoval] was chosen with the womb that has made this a reality.
This wonder woman was born on April 30th 1942 and she will be celebrating another year tomorrow and therefore we hope to be in Gangadiwali to be with Cynda. It has been a tradition among the Garifuna Nation to use nicknames on each other and sometimes one can live an entire lifetime without knowing the other person’s real name.
Today we would like to share with our readers and the world that we hope to be at the Garifuna Heritage Park in Gangadiwali Labuga to be with Cynda. Cynda is the name of a Mahogany Tree that was transplanted a year ago tomorrow to honor the womb that gave birth to Lúbara Huya/Tomas Sanchez]
Day-4-Tues.1/5/18/-It is now 4:44 in the morning and have thinking about some the events that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday. Yesterday will go done in the history of Guatemala for many years to come. The Spirit of Álvaro Enrique Arzú Irigoyen is now in Gangadiwali Labuga in the form of a Tree. This particular “Tree” is a symbol of “Peace” at the Garifuna Heritage Park in Gangadiwali for the Garifuna Nation. The Peace Treaty that was signed by Mr. Álvaro Arzú in Guatemala in the year 1996 is in the roots of this particular “Tree” at the Garifuna Heritage Park in Gangadiwali, Labuga Livingston Guatemala.
The Garifuna Nation in Guatemala would like to extend their condolence from the bottom of their hearts to your family and the families he has touched over the years for the past twenty years. The Peace Treaty of Guatemala is now a part of our everyday lives.
Day-6-Thurs.3/5/18-It is now 3:44 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that has unfolded in front of our eyes during the past thirteen days. We have been thinking about a moment like this, in this case, we would like to give thanks and praise to the Most High and the Ancestors of Tomorrow for their interventions in our affairs. We would like for our readers and the world to know that each and every one of us is an Ancestor of Tomorrow.
On the other hand tomorrow will be a month since we first heard from Dr. Sébastien Perrot, honorable consul of Guatemala in Martinique about his visit to Labuga Livingston from the 19th April -22nd April 2018. In this case, we would like our readers and the world to know that we are back on the cyber networks.
It has been difficult to reach this time and point on our Spiritual Journey. We have been documenting about a Spiritual Journey that started at the University of Loyola in Los Angeles, California during the 4th July 1992. The past twenty five years has been like training for a moment like this. We have learned over the years that training your expectations for the future is not an easy task.
To be continued.
Thursday, February 22, 2018
Day-11-Sat.17/2/18-It is now 11:07 in the morning and just got through sharing some of the events that unfolded in front of ours during the past twenty four hours. We were able to share with our readers on Facebook the Agenda of the meeting we had at the capital yesterday. We were back at CASA ARIANA on Avenida Reforma Zona -9 for a follow-up meeting regarding the National Census of Guatemala, 2018.
On the other hand, more or less half an hour ago we were able to share with our reader, a copy of the information that was documented during the meeting that took place at the same place on the 19th January 2018. It is also our duty in this case to inform our readers that the following meeting with the same institution is already scheduled for the 16th March 2018.
We would like to inform our readers that our role is waiting for us. A role to participate in a decision making process that is now directly linked with the future of our grandchildren and their children.
Day-14-Tues.20/2/18-It is now 6:20 in the morning and have been thinking about some of the events that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday, to give the our readers an idea, it was thirty eight years ago, since the sole of our feet came in contact with the soil of a land that has nurtured emigrants since the Pope was an altar boy. Today here we are thirty eight years later thinking about some of the events that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday between our journey to Gangadiwali and back to La Buga. Between our journey to Gangadiwali yesterday and the message that we just got through reading from Madiba through Long Walk to Freedom has brought us to a point and time like this. The role of a father in a time like this looks very much like it was when Madiba was still a little boy.
Another person that we would like to mention in a time like this is Ma Chana, she was born on the 21st February 1921 therefore Madiba was then three years old. Ma Chana was the first person to who nurtured a belief that we stand by today. We would like to share with our readers and the world at large that we are not alone. The term “We” in this case is collective, it is not singular, it is plural. It is also about the mind, body and soul; it includes the seen and unseen.
Garifunareality- our blog was created on the 21st Feb 2010, to be honest with our reader at this moment we do not have exact information about the amount of messages we have shared with the world at large for the past seven years.
Tomorrow on the other hand, will be about the future, but between now and then lies a gray area that does not reveal itself ahead of time.
Day-15-Wed.21/2/18-It is now 4:24 in the morning and have been waiting for this moment and time for us to do something together for the first time in the name of the common good, the words of Madiba has been ringing in our hears about yearning for peace on earth. Madiba said that everybody in the world is looking for peace. He also says that the first change should begin from within, if we want to live in a society where equal opportunities should prevail then we have to take the first step.
To begin with, together we can all give thanks and praise to the Most High along with the Spirits of the Trouble Makers for their interventions in our affairs. We would like to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to join us on a spiritual journey which we believe is going to continue.
The next step for us is to take necessary actions and socialize the changes that are unfolding in front of our eyes at the Municipality in La Buga Guatemala. We would like to inform our readers and the world that we, Garifuna Nation in Guatemala would like to open the doors of the Municipality of Livingston Izabal, Guatemala to the public
Today garifunareality our blog is celebrating eight years of wonders; it was on the 21st February 2010 that Sister Michelle Forbes brought us to the land of wonders and it continues today. Today La Buga is a Wonderful Place, where we would like our grandchildren and their children to continue enjoying the wonders of La Buga.
Thursday, February 1, 2018
Day-32-Thurs. 1/2/18-It is now 5:55 in the morning and has been thinking about the events that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday. Yesterday around this time La Buga was literally in the dark, we had no electricity for more than sixteen hours but now we are in the light; a light we believe has been waiting for us. A light at the end of the tunnel has been waiting for since the 12th April 1797.
The 12th April 2018 will be 221 years since we were exiled to the coast of Honduras but this time the light will be waiting for us. A Spiritual Light is a type of light that cannot be seen by the naked eyes therefore we are conscious that there is a large task ahead.
Lately we have been reading messages from the past, for example, messages from Black Leaders that might have seen the last blue moon over one hundred and fifty years ago. If Rafael Carrera the first black president of Guatemala had lived one more year, he would have had the chance to see it on the 31st January 1866 but he made his transition the year before 1865. On the other hand Booker T. Washington was less than ten years old in 1866 when the previous blue moon took place before yesterday.
A Spiritual Light therefore does not have limits and it never goes out, it is always there even thought we might not see it. We were at the first town board meeting for the year 2018 on the second floor of the Muni in La Buga yesterday and the “figure” we were hoping to see was not there. The actual Mayor, Miguel Rax was not physically present at the first town board meeting yesterday and because we did not see him, we were about to take actions in ways we believe would have altered the process.
From our Spiritual Point of view, Marcos Sanchez Diaz is a light and it was the 31st January 2011 when we first saw the light that we are now writing about. We are conscious that while we are doing the writing a light is present, and it has always been. While we were in Esquipulas on the 5th and 6th January 2018, we [Tomas Sanchez/Lúbara Huya] were able to see Miguel Rax with both eyes twice in one day. The first time was while we were in line to the see the Cristo Negro of Esquipulas, bear in mind that it was also the nick name the Indigenous would refer to Rafael Carrera the first black president of Guatemala.
On the other hand we would go for months in La Buga without seeing the actual mayor. Sometime we would visit the Muni twice a week for months and we would not see him, or he did not want to see us. We would like the president of Guatemala, Jimmy Morales and the Mayor of La Buga, Miguel Rax to know that the light will somehow overcome the dark. We can now see with our Spiritual eyes A Spiritual Light at the end of the tunnel.
Tuesday, November 28, 2017
Day-34-Sun.12/11/17- It is now 3:57 in the morning and has been thinking that we are six days away from Day-40 on our calendar which will fall on Saturday 18th November 2017 on another calendar. The next six days will turn to hours and then to minutes and after that; even the seconds will count. When a person becomes aware that even the seconds count, one begins to cherish every moment and every second. To cherish every moment in our lives is not an easy concept to grasp, especially in days like these and the days to come.
There are moments in our lives when it looks like the odds are against us and we begin to question if we are on the right path. In this case, if we fail to cherish the moment then we have missed the right path.
Day-38- Thurs. 16/11/17- It is now 4:37 in the morning and just got through reading the message we shared with our readers four days ago. The past four days has been some of the most divine moments of a spiritual journey that we have manage to share with the world for the past seven years.
The past seven years of our lives [yours and mine] has been like an open book. It is a book you and I are creating as we speak; someone who always comes to mind immediately is our Sister Dr. Michelle Forbes-Ocasio. We first met on the 15th August 2009 while she was writing a part of her dissertation in La Buga, [for more details go to her webpage www.garifunaresearch.org
In this case, Gangadiwali was able to honor Marcos Sanchez Diaz yesterday by transplanting a Mahogany Tree that came from the chosen seeds that were on Diriwana’s Table on the 21stFebruary 2017. While Sister Michelle was doing her dissertation in La Buga over seven years ago, she was given the green light to do some research on her own about the life and history of Marcos Sanchez Diaz. On the other hand we cannot forget the contributions of brothers like Salvador Suazo, Dr. Joe, brother Alfonzo and many others who have made him real in our lives today.
This morning it was revealed to us through a divine intervention to honor Booker T. Washington on our next visit to Gangadiwali sometime next week by transplanting a Mahogany Tree that came from the chosen seeds.
The future moments will be on the next page of our book and it begins today, but before anything first and foremost we would like to thank the universe and you for being present. The next twenty four hours will be moments that you and I are creating together.
Day-39- Fri. 17/11/17- It is now 4:10 in the morning and getting ready to travel to the district of Solola, Guatemala sometime after five this morning but before anything, we would like to share with our readers about an event that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday at the head-quarters of ONEGUA. It was the presentation of a research in relation to the situation of the Garifuna women regarding justice in Guatemala.
We were present at the presentation at the head-quarters of ONEGUA and our intervention was about the role of Barauda. Barauda in our oral tradition would be someone like the Michelle Obama of today. She was the First Lady of Chief Joseph Chatoyer. She was a defender of the women rights in her times.
Day-3 Tues.21/11/17- It is now 5:11 in the morning and have been thinking about some of the events that unfolded in front of our eyes during the past three days but first we would like to share with our readers and the world that the visit of Mr. Zeid Ráad Al Hussein the actual high commissioner of the United Nation to Guatemala is like the light at the end of the tunnel. From our Spiritual point of view, the light is in the form of Justice.
In this case, the visit of Mr. Hussein to Guatemala and our visit to Solola Guatemala on the 18th November 2017 was a Day 40 on our calendar. It was a day that Brother Fermin Arzu was chosen to represent the Garifuna People of Guatemala as a Spiritual Leader. He was able to share the same stage that Mr. Hussein was on, and went as far as sharing a message in English with him.
The media was able to share information about the visit of Mr. Hussein with authorities like the president of Guatemala Jimmy Morales. The case that caught Mr. Hussein’s attention is the loss of 41 lives in Hogar Seguro during the month of March 2017.
We would like Mr. Hussein to know that the Garifuna People of Guatemala has lost every respect that we once had for the President of Guatemala Jimmy Morales. We the Garifuna People are in the same shoes with the other indigenous groups, if the children at Hogar Seguro were 41 Garifuna children, from our point of view there would not be any difference in the reaction of the president to the situation.
On the other hand, the Garifuna People of Guatemala have manage to share our solidarity with the family since May 15th 2017, by transplanting 41 mahogany trees in Gangadiwali, La Buga to honor the life of each and every one of the teenager that died in the fire during the month of March 2017.
We would like the high Commissioner of the United Nations, Mr. Hussein and the world at large to know that the Garifuna Nation has managed to keep the Spirit of Justice for the 41 teenagers. The 41 mahogany trees in Gangadiwali is a symbol of Justice for the indigenous of Guatemala.
On the other hand, a copy of a research that was conducted this year regarding the situation of the Garifuna Women in relation to the system of Justice in Livingston, Guatemala was donated as a gift from the Garifuna People to Mr. Hussein on the 18th November 2017 in Solola, Guatemala.
In this case, we would like to share with Mr. Hussein, the high commissioner of the United Nation and the world that Gangadiwali was able to honor Barauda yesterday with a Mahogany Tree from the seeds that were on Diriwana’s Table on the 21st February 2017.

Day-15- Thurs. 14/9/17-It is now 4:23 in the morning and have been reading a message from Thinking Allowed, it is a fascinating collection of interviews from the Nation Public Television series. Our attention was caught on our way to Guatemala City on the 12th September 2017 to meet with representatives of the United Nations in Guatemala. Our attention was caught by Brother Fermin by way of a book we first shared on the 24th June2008 and would like to share the exact message that we first shared with him.
“I hope that the wings of this book take you to the destiny of your choice.”
It has been a message from Matthew Fox during an interview that has brought us to this moment and time after nine years, three months and twenty one days later. In this case, it has been a question that sooner or later each and every one of us will have to deal with. “How do I define Spirituality?”
On the other hand, the experience we had in Guatemala on the 12th September 2017 will allow us to “dream” with our eyes open. From our point of view, “To dream with your eyes open is about being present in the moment.
Sister Ingrid Gamboa, Brother Mariano Gotay, Brother Fermin Arzú and Yours truly were caught with our eyes open at the events that took place in Guatemala City at “Hotel Conquistador”. We were joking about the “fact”, not to forget the name of this particular hotel. To give you an idea, our second meeting for the day, was in the hall of Pedro Alvarado. The Spirits of the Conquistadores is very much alive today, and we would for the world to know that “We” can see and hear them. We were able to see and hear the Spirits of Pedro Alvarado and others at the events that took place in Guatemala City on the 12th September 2017.
In this case, we have been sharing with our readers about messages like Spiritual Politics, A Spiritual Vote, Spiritual Eyes, so forth and so on; be that as it may, this moment for us will be about a Spiritual Ear. As Bob Marley would say, “there is a natural mystic floating in the air.”
The Spirits of our Ancestors, [Áharis], and the Spirits of The Trouble Makers are very much alive today. The Spirits of the Trouble Makers like Marcos Garvey, Bob Marley, Malcolm X, Booker T, Marcos Sanchez Diaz, Paramount Chef, Joseph Chatoyer and many others like Diriwana were also present and still are and will be forever present to look over their descendants and their generations to come.
Brother Leo, from Punta Gorda has been very instrumental in this particular process he is a part of this Spiritual Journey and we would like the world to know that the “Ship” is ready.
From our Spiritual Point of View, this “Ship” is very symbolic for a time like this. This Ship is the “Ship”, Booker T Washington was speaking of, plus Marcos Garvey spoke about taking us back to the Mother Land on this ship.
Day-17- Sat. 16/9/17- It is now 7:26 in the morning and has been thinking about some of the events that are unfolding in front of our eyes during the past two days. Dreaming with our eyes open is a concept that we have been writing about since we first slept in Gangadiwali for the first time over five years ago.
Before the experience we had in Gangadiwali over five years ago, from our point of view then, dreams were like fantasies, ideas and hopes far and wide from realities.
Day-18-Sun. 17/9/17- It is now 6:19 in the morning and trying to keep-up with the events that are unfolding in front of our eyes. In this case, my three sons are together for the first time and hope to celebrate my birthday on Thursday 21st September 2017 in Gangadiwali.
To find time to celebrate in a time like this in Guatemala is the acknowledgement of the sacrifice that is involved. From our point of view, life is about fifty percent sacrifice and fifty percent celebration. Guatemala is going through a political storm since the month of April 2015 and things are not getting any better. However, the sacrifice of our Ancestors for this country will not be in vain. The generation of the present has gone beyond our call and duty to manifest and reveal that the Áharis are not pleased with what is going on in this particular government.
The mixed feelings and emotions that are being manifested throughout the Nation of Guatemala have divided the people. Ambassador Todd Robinson of the United States in his first visit to La Buga on the 30th April 2015 said at the time, that Guatemala is a country with “two faces.” The “two faces” are at war with each other and we the Garifuna People of this Nation can be caught in the middle.
Day-19- Mon. 18/9/117- It is now 6:51 in the morning and just got through reading a feedback from Dr. Joe in Barranco but before that we were listening to Antonio Gutierrez the Secretary General of the United Nations on Facebook and was thinking that our President Jimmy Morales will be in New York at the assembly of the United Nation tomorrow. The president of Guatemala will speak in front of 193 nations that are registered with the United Nations.
The president of the United Sates, Donald Trump and our president Jimmy Morales will be participating in an event we believe will show the other “face”. The “other face” that we are about to see from the president of Guatemala will define the future of the Garifuna Nation in Guatemala.
Day-22-Thurs.21/9/17- It is now 4:09 in the morning and just got through reading the messages we have been sharing with our readers for the past week. The events of the past seven days has brought us[human beings] to a moment like this, a moment and time to pray for peace, love and understanding.
We the Garifuna Nation would like the world to know that we are praying to the universe to heal the wounded souls. We are praying to the universe to give us the power of love to heal the world. We are praying to the universe to heal our minds and souls. We are praying to the universe to bless each and every one of us.
On the other hand we are getting ready to be in Gangadiwali sometime today. In this case, we would like to share with the universe A Thanks In Advance for everything. Thanks in Advance for the past, present and future. Thanks for the Trials and Tribulations.
We are sharing Spiritual Ear with you, because this is about a Spiritual Journey that started in Los Angeles California on the 2nd July 1992 and continues today. The first message we heard was in Spring Valley, San Diego on the 16th August 1997 and since then we have been sharing and on and off.
The question about how one should define their spirituality is not an easy concept to grasp. The concept of a Spiritual Ear, from our Spiritual Point of View, is being aware that the Universe can SPEAK.
