7 No’j – Creation to Realization for Cholq’ij New Year
NO’J is knowledge. This essence is important in the chain of creation, for it’s structure creates balance between material reality and magical reality. The challenge we must overcome is what we know as reason, which is both positive and negative. It has its share of knowledge, which frames us within what’s rational, within the part of the thoughts that is looking for logic and reason within the parameters that delineate the social fact. The other knowledge is the one that we deny or which is dormant, that one that connects us to a different reality, the reality of the energies that form what we call reality, which is ultimately the configuration that we all have learned; to give shape, weight, and volume to everything that exists, this is a world of vibrating energies. In the Creative evolution this Ch’umil is of essential importance, for it gives us the opportunity to foray into the magical part that most of us have restrained, limiting then its purpose of life. As an example we can assure that most people have no knowledge of how they are physically formed, they don’t know how many bones or muscles they have, many don’t know how many organs they have or where they are located, least what their function is. Less do we know the importance of the heart and the brain and its hemispheres, and of how to use them to develop the synaptic creative chain of neurons. Let’s take on the task of learning this, this is a good start.
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.
