2020 has been a year of Blessings and Challenges for all of us. It started of with a Volcanic Eruption of Mount Taal with the premonition of using Face Mask and then the Pandemic of Coronavirus 19. Though earlier than that, we are also praying to restore Peace in HongKong due to the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement. But the 2020 has been too kind for us specially to me as the Founder of Luntiang Aghama and Hilot Academy of Binabaylan. It has taught me that prosperity doesn’t come in terms of monetary resources but through the Human resources that you are earning. In 2019, Our Family have lost our beloved Mother but in 2020 it secure our Family to have the rest of us bonded together tightly. We have our Nephew Carl Denzel on January and by early November we have back Emerie Jorge with us from Japan.
The first activity that we did last year was participating a trade fair in Makati. It was a leap of Faith that we do despite the fact that Sulfuric Gas were still present after the eruption of Taal Volcano. After that, sets of people arrived to be with us to learn Hilot Binabaylan and among the first people who reunite to their ancestral roots were Julz Bolinayen from Hawaii and Jamee Pineda of Washington, DC. Then aSpanish student came from Catalan named Noel and Laura, then followed by my Soul Sister Maria Haswell of California and Dina from London. And Lastly we welcome also Angelica Kai Bautista of Glendale, California as the last Face-to-Face student that we have for 2020. These events happened on the first two months of 2020 then after that we are shocked with the news of having lockdown in the Philippines due to Covid 19 Pandemic. But despite of that we were able to have our last trip in Ifugao as Sir Archimedes De Leon of Tarlac invited us to meet Mamerto Tindongan which is a Mumbaki of Kinakin, Banaue, Ifugao.
From the Lockdown everything becomes paralyzed. No one is allowed to go out but only staying at home. Schools, Churches and even offices are shut down and only essential establishment are allowed to operate such as Banks, Groceries, Pharmacies and Hospitals. Of course local government offices are open such as the Barangay Centers and City Halls as they vigil to provide needs of our countrymen. Indeed literally, food are being supplied by our government so that we do not go out of our home. It is like a prison jail that we have. And whenever the need rise to go out, you must wear a Face Mask and obtain a Quarantine Pass and Valid ID.
From that point of time, we as a Shrine started our Daily Global Healing Devotion that been responded by many participants across the Globe. People from the United States, Europe and the Philippines have joined our Daily Global Healing Devotion that also give birth to certain individual ministries to help people live their lives while staying at home. Indeed that the situation that we have last year causes everyone mental and emotional trauma, that the work of Light Workers and Energy Healers boosted to our Maximum Level. Aside from Daily prayers, there were Online Yoga, Tai Chi and Qi Gong Session held virtually. Thanks to modern technology we first use House Party App, then Zoom and lastly Google Meet. From our Global Healing Devotion we were able to meet different people that been invited by our Friend in Italy Agar Agar, then with Ria who is in Austria, Lady Liz Hamilton of Pennsylvania, Mayumi of Japan, Prescy Segundo of San Fernando, La Union, Ms. Didi Provost of Camiguin Island and Rev. Blue Souled which is a High Priest of the Temple of the Path of the Wise in Davao City. Jason Alcoriza, Ice Infante and Ernest Nieves was also present in the Devotion and most importantly, the Grace of the Supreme Divine Spirit was with us no matter what name we call in the prayer.
Then by June, Hilot Academy of Binabaylan have opened its door for online training. Though we really intend to have in person and face-to-face training but since there are wide travel ban implemented world wide, the Hilot Online Training made opportunities for students to learn Hilot without spending a lot of time and money to travel to the Philippines. And gratefully we have done it successfully that Lukayo of Canada, Bernice of Singapore, Micheala Sanders of Colorado, Chris of Hawaii, Akuma of California, Lawrence of Hawaii, JL of New York, Jen of Canada and another Jen of California have taken it successfully. Some of them already have completed the Non contact Hilot: Mind and Spirit Working Class and some are still on it. This class will continue this 2021 and will progress more as we create classes to be available online.
This Year of 2021, I know we are still at Pandemic so we will take this opportunity to work harder doing online classes, rituals and services in promoting Philippine Indigenous Spirituality and Healing Arts. In fact, we already have started Filipino Magick Membership Class through BuyMeACoffee.Com.
Luntiang Aghama Natural Divine Arts Shrine of Healing Inc. aims to promote Philippine Indigenous Spirituality and Healing Arts. But as a Shrine we also need to have a means in generating income to support our daily living as well as in conducting research and developing technology that we could share to the public. BuyMeACoffee.Com allow us to share our content to the public that will allow us to earn as well. You can support us by becoming a member to our Buy me a coffee site with a yearly USD 50.00 support or monthly USD 5.00. You can also make a one time donation of USD 1.00 to read specific post in our site. Since our wordpress site is just a free site, we wanted to upgrade this into a Business site that we can generate income as well without need other website.
Before 2021 has arrived, we are contemplating to what Luntiang Aghama has already done so far in our 20 years of existence. Aside from the outreach ministries that we have done through Peace Prayer Interfaith Ministry and Kaduwa Movement Equality through Compassion, we have seen that Luntiang Aghama has created her own pride in developing Kilubansa Elemental Name Energetic Balance Analysis and Sibulan Adlaw Tala Mystic Oracle. We also have answered some of the frequent question to my self why Luntian Aghama has no active members, like as I always said that Luntiang Aghama does not make members because the work of Luntiang Aghama is to make people ReMember themselves of who they are. The Leadership of Luntiang Aghama is not to have followers but the Leadership of Luntiang Aghama is about making ways. Luntiang Aghama is an organization that is not made of Members but we are an Organization of Creators, Co Creators and Re Creators. So the expectations are High when you are to be called as Luntiang Aghama. It is high so that when you are already there you can easily pull up other to ascend their status to become the light that shines in the midst of Darkness.
What to Expect from Us?
This year of 2021, we will provide the General Public the opportunity to know us more through Public Online Rituals and Workshop. Filipino Magick is one of this goal that we are going to implement this year. Throughout this year, we will share information about the Diwata, Engkanto, and Anito. We are going to conduct workshop on Orasyon, Gayuma and making Pangontra. We will talk more about Kulam, Barang and Panggagaway. We will also share to everyone the proper way of making an Atang or Pagaalay. Aside from these, we will work on a 3 tier Course Program on becoming a Hilot Binabaylan, and these are the Magtatawas Course, Manggagamot Course and the Albularyo Course. And these training program will be available online and offline.
And with these we ask your support. We will also open our Shrine to accept donations in terms of Calamity and Natural Disaster that is going to happen ( i pray there is none). But most of all, we are praying that we could have fix our Physical Shrine here in Bulacan to have at least 3 Bedroom so that we can accommodate people who want to stay and learn from us.
We dream to have this design for our Shrine to conduct our studies and in accommodating our pilgrims who want to reconnect them selves to the Ancestors through the guidance of our Shrine. I hope you can be an instrument to manifest this prayer that we have long prayed for.
So until then, May you All Blessed Be Peace!
Mayari Na! PagAsatin!
Yours in the Craft,
Rev. Rolando Gomez Comon CNT-SOLA
