“Ciudad de los Dioses” AKA Teotihuacán

Two hours from Mexico City one of the oldest pyramidal basements in the entire world is situated in what means “The City of the Gods”. Two-thousand-years-old city.

It still keeps some original painted murals.

And this is what I found fascinating about this second visit I made the past Monday:

    They were greatly influenced by their contemporaneous , the Mayan. They used their numeration system, some paintings in the walls, shared many of their gods (but with different names), used items developed by them like the rubber vulcanized ball, jade, sea shells, among other traded stuff.
Look at the sea shell
    Women were more important than man because they meant fertility on earth.
    Both the Sun and the Moon pyramids resembled the two hills behind them in form. Just as in Machu Picchu.
    As in Chichén Itzá, the principal pyramid was built over a water spring. In the Sun’s pyramid it was used to offer sacrifices. The one in Kukulkan’s pyramid has just recently been discovered.
    the altar right in front of the Moon’s pyramid was used by the “Tlatoani” to speak to the city and it has such a great acoustic everyone as far as 100 meters could hear him if they were standing over ground level. I’ll show you a demonstration I was forced to make by my friend jaja.
    they had a sophisticated drainage system used for W.C.!!!!!! This is crazy cause only Mayan civilizations had this at this time in the history of the entire WORLD.
Water flow recreation
    They didn’t care much for the ecology as I thought, they were pretty wasteful and tear down tons of trees that later made the land dry and ran out of water and food because of this….. Many of the vegetation you get to see here is not the original, but you can see the original in a little garden INAH made to recreate the natural ecosystem back then.
    There’s a Japanese archeologist working for Tehotihuacan.
    They used obsidian as lenses to see the sun and analyze eclipses and other astronomical events.

Love this place, love my culture, love learning new things from Mexico’s history and links among prehispanic cultures. Después de esto debes visitar el Templo Mayor en el centro histórico y después recorrer la sala maya, Mexica y de Tehotihuacán del Museo de Antropología e Historia.

My 2016 Resolution was

IMG_9397 (1).JPG

One of my 2016’s bests was attending the first Hillsong London Service of the year. It was awesome; I confess I was not at all excited to go, but I wanted to experience the high level of organization they have, to pass it on my service at Church in Mexico. God was preparing a surprise for us (my husband, cousins and me), the founder of the entire Hillsong Church was preaching as a guest that day. His sermon was really encouraging,  He gave us this seven-point-list for our 2016 Resolution: 

  1. Dreams will come true (Psalms 21:1-2)
  2. A year of miraculous answered prayer (James 5:16)
  3. Blessings will come by His goodness  (Deuteronomy 29:1)
  4. Dominion and authority – head not tail (Psalms 21:3)
  5. Psalms 21:4 blessings should last longer than a season. May it be a LONG SEASON
  6. An overflow of His presence (Psalms 21:6)
  7. SUPER PROTECTION Of His Love (Psalms 21:11)

I can’t explain the blessing this resolution was for this year. I think I just missed two of this points though. I kept it in my phone’s notes so I could read it periodically thought the year, and refocus on my goals . God is awesome, He is powerful, He forgives my stubborn heart, He has NO LIMITS, He is in control, “He knows the depths of my heart and still loves me the same.”

The entire service was stunning, the worship team couldn’t be more powerful, the welcome team was so very professional my life was blessed since the first moment, the speakers spoke gracefully, and the message warmed my heart for the entire year. 

Hope you can use it for your life and be as blessed as I was, I will again use it this year.
