Najt Portal – Ab’ Maya New Year


Lords of TimeThe Maya civilization is one of the most extraordinary that has existed. They are know as THE LORDS OF TIME with their high technology, deep knowledge of time, mathematics, astronomy, architecture and the advances they made on medicine and all the fields of human knowledge – which still amaze us. For the Maya world the NAJT is the convergence of Space and Time in one unique place, which, when you add movement and speed, gives us the configuration and perception of REALITY.

We are facing transcendent times. On December 21, 2010, two cosmic events converged: the Winter Solstice and a Full Moon Eclipse. This day opened a Cosmic-Telluric portal, which is the preamble for the famous change of Cycle, the end of the 5,200 years and the coming of the JOB AJAW on December 21, 2012.

This event is called “The Opening of the NAJT PORTAL” and it has a greater effect during the cycle between December 21 and February 22, 2010. The energies of the NAJT (space-time) are in constant movement and everything we plan or decide will generate an energy that will make it become real; for which is very important to be clear about the purposes and thoughts we create during this time. This is the perfect moment to give space to the NEW HUMAN BEING and to be in harmony with KAK ALOM, the spirit of MOTHER EARTH.

The WAYEB, a cycle of the Maya Ab’ Calendar, began on Thursday, February 17. The Ab’ Calendar has 18 months of 20 days each and an extra month of 5 days: the WAYEB. This last month, to the traditional world of the Mayan Elders, is a time of introspection and encounter with one’s self, during which you must make an analysis of your life, reviewing your purposes and how you have accomplished them. This is a time for meditation, renovation and to project your real purpose in life. It is the opportunity to create the balance between the material and the spiritual world.

We invite you to do an inner job taking advantage of the energies that rule during this moment… find your inner self… meditate… analyze your life… write everything you think is important… project those things you want to accomplish; remember that this is a personal goal between the GREAT SPIRIT AND YOURSELF.

To culminate this cycle and open the space for the NAJT PORTAL, we will have a traditional Maya Fire Ceremony to celebrate the end of the WAYEB and the beginning of the AB’ MAYA NEW YEAR, on Tuesday, February 22, 2011. 19:20 is the best time of the day to connect with these energies. If you are not near a sacred place, light 20 candles to invoke the energy of the 20 Nawales. You can also light incense and connect with the fire of the candles, while you focus your thoughts and prayers to JUN AB KU heart of the heavens and KAK ALOM heart of Mother Earth.
