Episode 39: About time and the Mayan calendar, with Omboy Rome

We’re living in a new time. And that calls for a conversation about time. Meet Omboy Rome: cosmic hip hop artist, sound healer, and practitioner of the Mayan Dreamspell (the Mayan calendar). In this galactic conversation, Rome and I discuss how this difficult moment in our history can actually be a portal to live and inhabit time differently. Plus you’ll get to hear some of Rome’s music too (it's so good y'all).

Now is the moment to cultivate stillness, acceptance, and harmony with planet earth. We are not going back to normal. Everything we do with our time is art, and this is our chance to recreate our way of being. ✨

Show Notes:   


  • 0:00 - 1:35 - Welcome from me and Omboy Rome.
  • 01:35 - 2:33 - Rome’s intention for this hour is dedicating in order to influence. May we speak truth and may it resonate with those who hear.
  • 2:33 - 12:02 - Introduction to Omboy Rome, a sound healer and cosmic hip-hop artist who studies the Mayan Dreamspell (the Mayan calendar).
  • 12:02 - 14:25 - Our voice is both a container and contents… finding our voice may feel strange, but the contents are often ready to pour out.
  • 14:25 - 19:50 - Our Speak Your Truth check in.
  • 19:50 - 26:19 - Rome’s take about what’s going on on the planet right now (the pandemic, etc). We’ve been in an artificial frequency where time is money, but there’s another way.
  • 26:19 - 32:40 - Rome’s song 11:11, a collaboration with Dream Circle. 
  • 32:40 - 34:40 - Everything we do with our time is art.
  • 34:40 - 36:30 - What does 11:11 mean to you? What do synchronicities mean to you? They are the language of the universe.
  • 36:30 - 38:19 - What does it mean to you to speak your truth?
  • 38:19 - 49:15 - About the Mayan Dreamspell - the Mayan calendar, and Elissa’s experience on the day out of time in 2019. 
  • 49:15 - 51:40 - Kali is the goddess of time and destruction.
  • 51:40 - 53:54 - A bit about the two Greek concepts of time: Chronos and Kairos. Chronological and transcendental time. 
  • 53:54 - 56:34 - The year we’re in currently in the Mayan Dreamspell is the White Magnetic Wizard year, and it’s the beginning of a thirteen year cycle. Next year (starting our July 26th) is the Blue Lunar Storm year, and things will get stormy. This is only the beginning. Things are not going back to “normal.”
  • 56:34 - 58:37 - What do we do? We go back to the basics. What does it mean to be a human? Nourish yourself. De-stress. Focus on being in the now. Work with the earth.
  • 58:37 - 1:03:20 - Wrap up
  • BONUS: 1:03:20 - Rome’s track “Age of Aquarius”
