2 E – Creation to Realization for Cholq’ij New Year
E is the path traveled by the expansion of creation travels, as the elders say. It is a path known as the Saq’ Be’, the white path of the Cosmos. The Saq’ Be’ has a correlative in the face of Mother Earth – the white path that brings the ceremonial centers together in the Mayan territory. It is also the inner path of each human being, the path that allows us to realize our purpose in life. It is every step that we take, every action we carry out. It is the realization of the cosmic and telluric completeness, the harmony we must have with the environment. It is the limitless expansion of the Universe.
E is the intermediary between the material and the emotional, it is the path of expansion of the creative mind, that which creates what we call “reality”, and it is primarily our path towards spirituality. Project your well-being in the physical plane, which includes the material well-being, to then have the space/time for the other planes. Remember that only you can walk your Saq’ Be’, no one can walk it for you.
Wajxaqib’ (8) B’at’z – The Cholq’ij New Year
According to the Maya, the world was created in one Mayan month (twenty days). The process of creation begins on Jun (1) B’atz and ends on the day Wuqub’ (7) Tz’i’, completing the first twenty days of the Cholq’ij (Calendar of Life). After this final day of creation, the day Wajxaqib’ (8) B’atz’ arrives, which is considered the Cholq’ij New Year. When Maya people celebrate the Cholq’ij new year, they are celebrating that the creation of the world has been fulfilled, and the beginning of a new cycle of 260 days.
We are living in the time of the Job’ Ajaw, or Fifth Sun which we entered on December 21, 2012. This epoch is related to the element Ether and to the fifth dimension. We have entered a time of greater awareness, in which we are witnessing socio-economic changes – but these changes don’t happen overnight. We are only now beginning to see them. The energy of the Ch’umilal, or signs of the Maya Cholq’ij Calendar, have the same meaning we have been sharing, but now their energy resonates more with the spiritual power that comes with them. The concatenation of the energies that each of the Ch’umilal represents is the guide of the Creation. It influences us throughout the cycle of our life and the cycle of Mother Earth. By working with each of the days we will connect to the spiritual energy of the twenty Ch’umilal to be in harmony with each of them.
You can follow Carlos’s guide to more deeply understanding and connecting with the energies of the twenty days leading up to the Cholq’ij New Year in the Daily Ch’umil section of the website, or by subscribing to the newsletter or following Saq’ Be’ on social media.
