12 Iq’ – Today’s Nawal and Maya Creation


Nawal Iq'Iq’ is the wind, the energy that governs ideas and change; it symbolizes renewal and purity, it is the purifier of the body, the mind, and the spirit. It is the divine breath that sustains existence and the energy of words and communication. Number 12 projects creativity and dreams; it represents the consciousness of being. The energies of this day bring creativity and life to your projects.

During the Creation of the Universe 12 Iq’ created the wind. This is the reason why it is called spirit, because there is no death within it.

The book of the Chilam B’alam of Chumayel explains the creation of the universe. It tells that the world was created in one Maya month (20 days). The process of creation begins on the day 1 B’atz’ and ends in a day 7 Tz’i’, when the first 20 days are completed. After the last day of creation comes the day 8 B’atz’ (Cholq’ij Maya New Year). When Maya people celebrate their new year, they celebrate that the creation of the world has been fulfilled.
