6 Toj – Today’s Nawal and Maya Creation


Nawal TojToj is the law of cause and effect; it is a day to make offerings and the energy that repays us for all the good or bad we have done in our life. It is the Sacred Ceremonial Fire, the fire of the Spirit of the Ajaw, Heart of the Sky and Heart of the Earth. Number 6 entails learning and responsibilities; it is a day in which to thank the Creator and Maker for everything we have received. Connect to the energies of this day and light a candle to thank the Great Father for all that life has given you.

During the Creation of the Universe 6 Toj filled up the valleys with soil; it did it when the earth had not awakened.

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.
