1 Aq’ab’al ~ Today’s Ch’umil
Number 1 is the force and power of the beginning; it is unity. Aq’ab’al symbolizes the sunrise, the first ray of sunshine in the darkness; it is letting go and heading to a new direction. With every new day comes a new opportunity, you just need to be observant to see where the new ray of light is shining. Remember that to evolving means being in constant transformation. During this trecena (thirteen days) connect to the energy of Aq’ab’al and ask it to bring its light to every aspect of your life.
Prayer from Don Pedro Ixchop
In this sacred day I ask you, Ajaw, that your clarity lights my path. I ask that dawn comes to my destiny, that its clarity will always light my path and that its light will be my guide when I confuse my purpose, Ajaw. I ask that the star of the dawn will illuminate my path at all times and that the divinity of your heart, Ajaw Heart of the Sky and Heart of Mother Earth, will illuminate over me and over all the creatures in the face of Mother Earth. I ask that the light of the dawn comes to enlighten my wisdom; that this light comes to my home. I ask that you grant me your divine light, Heart of the Sky and Heart of Mother Earth. I ask you, Ajaw, that the Sun will rise in my home, that it will rise in the minds of my daughters and my sons, in the minds of my grandchildren. I ask that there is clarity in all the activities that I undertake, Ajaw of the Sky and the Earth. I pray that all fog is removed from my path through your divine power, Ajaw, Heart of the Sky and Heart of Mother Earth. I ask that no darkness will leak into the corners or into the center of my house, that any darkness will be removed and vanished by your divine power and your divine light, Heart of the Sky and Heart of Mother Earth. Maltiox, Maltiox, Maltiox, and four times Maltiox.
Ajaw Great Father or Supreme Being
