» The Ancient Mayas and Xibalba.

Legend says the afterlife for the ancient Mayas was a terrifying obstacle course in which the dead had to traverse rivers of blood, and chambers full of sharp knives, bats and jaguars. In Mexico; archeologists have discovered a maze of stone temples in underground caves, some submerged in water and containing human bones, which ancient Mayans believed was a portal where dead souls entered the underworld.

Certainly these catacombs are dark, cold, dangerous and could easily be viewed as a one way portal into the waiting Abyss. It’s been long known that the Maya regarded caves as sacred and had built structures in some.

Amid these deep, damp caves you could come to find slippery staircases and tortuous paths that skirt underground lakes littered with Mayan pottery and ancient skulls. You can also find bats, and in one cave, Jaguar bones.

This underground world is one big labyrinth which eventually leads to Xibalba (translated as “place of fear”) which is the given name within this underworld ruled by the Maya death gods and their helpers.

A group of researchers explored walled-off sacred chambers that could only be entered by crawling along a floor populated by spiders, scorpions and toads. The Mayas used sinkhole caves, known as cenotes, as places of worship and depositories for sacrificed humans. Many cenotes still contain pools that supply villages with water. The best known is the broad, circular pool at the ruins of Chichen Itza.

If you have come that far, you will eventually stumble upon a broad, perfectly paved, 100-yard underground road, a submerged temple, walled off stone rooms and the confusing crossroads of the legends. The road that comes off of the crossroads leads to the West, which is quite possibly the direction to Xibalba, the West being the direction described as the way to the afterlife.

At the center of the underground lakes is a collapsed and submerged altar with carvings indicating it was dedicated to the gods of death.

In some chambers you may find it nearly impossible to move without slashing your skin on stalacites and stone formations projecting from the walls and ceilings which could be seen as the feared “room of knives” described in the Popul Vuh. There’s a “chamber of roasting heat” which will certainly leave you doused in sweat. Cool currents of surface air penetrating some caves feel almost frigid, just like the legend’s “chambers of shaking cold.”

Subterranean “roads” interrupted by deep pools of water may signify the rivers of blood and pus.

It’s no wonder the Mayas saw the cenotes as a portal to an underworld which eventually became a portal to the abyss.

What do you think led the Mayas to sacrifice, and leave offerings en route to Xibalba. Perhaps this labyrinth to the afterlife is indeed just that, but who’s to say for sure?

Let me know your thoughts …

the physical reality illusion takes such a strong hold on so many people and i just really wish everyone could break out of that and see what else the universe has to offer.
