1 Kej – Today’s Ch’umil and Trecena Prayer
Enjoy the stability granted by the cycle of the deer; during this trecena (thirteen days) connect to the energy of Kej and ask for his protection to advance without encountering difficulties. Kej symbolizes the deer, who is the guardian of the forests and nature, called to maintain balance between humans and Mother Earth; it also projects the energy of balance, it has one foot in each of the four cardinal points, and therefore the basic elements.
Trecena Prayer from don Pedro Ixchop
“I thank you for this sacred day Ajaw, I ask you to strengthen my feet and my hands. I also ask you to strengthen my thoughts at every moment of my life, to prevent me from falling into the temptation of the adversary, of the enemy of the Sacred Spirituality. This will be the strength of my eyes, so that they will maintain the prosperity in your presence Ajaw, Heart of the Sky; Heart of Mother Earth. I ask you that my eyes won’t fall into the temptation of the adversaries, and in this way I can continue my spiritual offerings. That the mission that was given to me in this life will help me Ajaw, and that it will help Mother Earth. I ask that my mission of Chuchqajaw will be the strength of all the people that follow me in Maya Spirituality, and that I won’t feel any tiredness while being at your service Ajaw. Maltiox, Maltiox, Maltiox, and four times Maltiox Ajaw.”
