9 Kawoq – Creation to Realization for Cholq’ij New Year
KAWOQ – In this sequence of the energies of Creation, this Ch’umil is the one that gives importance to coexistence. Since it represents the family, the community, humanity, we have to realize that the purpose of human beings is to fulfill their own experience, but this should be connected to the evolution of all, for we all are the manifestation of Mother Earth. By now, in this cycle that we are living, there should already be a human level expansion in relation to the cosmic. On December 21, 2012 we entered an era directed to ether, projected to the galactic relation. The glyph for Kawoq (the circles that look like some sort of grape cluster) represents a family, but it is a cosmic family, for everything comes from above to the last circle. Everything comes from the Cosmos to the Earth and from the Earth to the Cosmos. The obstacle we face as a humanity, which was foreseen by the elders, is the thoughtlessness and the influence of the media to which we are subject and which is inducing us to a confrontation that affects the family with a lack of respect, instability, and disorientation. If we extend this to humanity, we can see that nowadays we live in intolerance, racism, and classism. But let’s remember that this is part of the changes that come with this new cycle, and the old socio-economic systems bring this readjustment. Let’s seek to join in.
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.
