4 Kej – Today’s Nawal and Maya Creation


Nawal KiejKej represents the deer that has one leg in each of the four cardinal points; it is balance and harmony, it is the energy that protects the natural world and which is called to maintain balance between humans and Mother Earth. Number 4 projects stability, firmness and security. Today the convergence of these two energies brings stability, any project that you start or work in today will enjoy the protection and steadiness of 4 Kej.

During the Creation of the Universe 4 Kej was the day in which the spirit came.

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.
