Hanging out with my Mayan Alux buddy. What you can’t see anyone? #mayan #alux #makethealuxhappy #mayanlegend #legend #aluxpicnic #playadelcarmen #ilovemexico

I’ve found this wonderful ”Munecos Quitapenas”. The indigenous people from the Highlands in Guatemala created Worry Dolls many generations ago as a remedy for worrying. According to the Mayan legend, when worrying keeps a person awake, he or she tells a worry to as many dolls as necessary. Then the worrier places the dolls under his or her pillow. The dolls take over the worrying for the person who then sleeps peacefully through the night. When morning breaks, the person awakens without the worries that the dolls took away during the night. 😊🌝 #quitapenas #mayanlegend #legend #goodnight #noworries #sleep #sleeping #likeaprayer #loveit

Imagine if you will. It’s a small Mayan house like any other. Chosen this year to host Maximón - the notorious Mayan saint who can only be pleased with offerings of rum and cigarettes! .
.
We quietly enter the house compound and peep into a tiny, dimly lit room. Cigarette smoke, candles burning. Three Mayan women are praying intently. One man, perhaps an intermediary, is pleading with Maximón in the indigenous language. Some old men sit behind, one playing the guitar, others drinking beer. So what if it’s only 10 am.
.
.
Maximón stands tall, dawning a hat, scarves and a tie around his neck, suited up. A cigarette dangling from his lips. Two men sitting on either side of him, diligently removing the cigarette ash into an ashtray. The devotees make an offering of the local rum. The men remove the cigarette, tilt Maximón a little, put the bottle to his lips and let him drink! When he seems satiated, they wipe his lips, put in a new cigarette, light it.
.
.
Legend has it that when a bunch of local fishermen were out to work, they put Maximón in charge of protecting their wives. But while they were gone, he disguised himself as their lovers and slept with all of them. They say he answers prayers that are too uncivil for other gods! .
.
I ask the men sitting next to him if Maximón would like some beer. Only rum, they say, so I make an offering too. The women continue praying intently. The vocal man next to them grabs a guitar and begins singing to Maximón. Cigarette smoke, candles burning...

Coolest lil dude! 😎😎

Repartes la lluvia que mandas de arriba entre la vegetación de abajo, convirtiéndola en abundancia.
