3 Aj – Today’s Nawal & Maya Creation
Aj, represented by cane and cornstalks, symbolizes the strength of power; it is a pillar that connects the cosmic and the telluric energies, and it means abundance and the renewal of nature. Number 3 symbolizes communication and creativity; it stands for the results of our efforts. Today’s energies give you the spiritual power that allows you to develop and strengthen your inner self.
During the Creation of the Universe 3 Aj created all things, the multitude of things, things of the sky, things of the sea and things of the earth.
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.
