Today I would love to share with you the importance on this day “the Day of out Time” and what opportunity it brings to us in our journeys of evolution.
We will tune in deeply to this day and the Cosmo-Vision of the Tzolkin in our next special ATLACHINOLLI ceremony, on July 25th.
The "Day out of Time" is the day of timeless magic, a day that is not tracked by any moon or month.
This is a day where we can let go of the past and be present in the now, a "Day out of Time" in aspiration for the start of the new year, a tool to harmonise with the galaxy. It is the perfect time to strip yourself of the apparent separation to the oneness, to strip of the old schemes, memories and expectations. During this time of change every level of your being is transforming with a deep activation.
The Mayans perceived time as cyclical movement of space, determined by the astral courses and cycles of nature.
Time is cyclical because the return to the origin of the universe means a new creation that guarantees the regeneration of life and experience in general.
For the 13 Moon Calendar and the Tzolkin Calendar, this day is an opportunity to truly experience timelessness, no where to go, no one to be, just be. To tune inwards with our hearts as we connect with the earth and the cosmos. When the Sun rises with the brightest star, Sirius, on July 26th signalling the start of the new 13 x 28 day lunar cycle.
This is the day when the 13 Moon Mayan Calendar starts. It is believed that in this day our planet receives intense light and cosmic energy that accelerates our evolution.
The Mayan Calendars are the most sophisticated and precise time division systems in the history of mankind. Their time keeping system is distributed according to the knowledge of the Mayan cosmogony and its complex astronomical studies.
It is a system which operation is explained thanks to a set of three calendars, used synchronously:
Tzolkin: 13 tones of 20 Kin (260 days)
13 Moon Calendar: 13 moons of 28 days (364 days) + 1 Day out Time
Haab: 18 Uinals of 20 Days + 5 days Huayeb
The Tzolkin is the most importan calendar as it joins magnetic form with resonance, which is what matter consist off, and synchronises the other Lunar and Haab Calendars.
If we look at the human body it has 13 articulation points, the spine being central with the six joins of our limbs (wrists, elbows shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles) symmetrical to it, along with our 20 digits (fingers and toes). As we can see the human body is the Tzolkin (Count of Days) which makes it so unique as it is the only calendar that represents the human form.
This sacred calendar corresponds to a cycle of 260 days does not have months but is made up of 20 days (kin), symbolised as Glyphs, that are resonated at the 13 tones of sound (within an octave) in a cyclical way.
This calendar coincides the movements of the sun, human gestation, the zenith passage and the growth of crops.
In the following image you can see the glyphs and their respective names from the Tzolkin calendar.
The lunar calendar has not only been used by the Mayan's to synchronise the other cosmic cycles but also by many other civilisations and ancient cultures for millennia.
These are some of most important medicinal plants used by the Mayans in their rituals of evolution, herbs with powerful relaxing nervine effects. It is likely they understood how important it is to be in a coherent state of homeostasis:
Cacao; (kakaw in Mayan) was one of the many sacred foods of the Mayans to the point of having a god for this food, Ek Chuah.
Based on Mayan mythology, cacao was a gift from Kukulkán to the Mayans when they created humanity made of corn (Ixim) by the goddess Ixmakuné.
Blue Lotus; The Mayans and the ancient Egyptians were well acquainted with the clinical effects of apomorphine contained in this plant. Today it has been proven to treat erectile dysfunction, relief anxiety and induce a deep sleep.
Copal; Mayans used Copal resins as one of the most important ingredients in all their spiritual rituals. Known for its uplifting emotional benefits and calming effects. Copal is rich in Triterpenes that have been shown to significantly reduce anxiety. Burning this resin is thought to activate “ion” channels in the brain, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety.
Azahar; also known as Neroli oil is widely used in aromatherapy. It stimulates the central nervous system, soothe nerves, lowers blood pressure, and has sedative, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, carminative, digestive, and diuretic effects.
Calendula; Aztecs and Mayans used the flowers in their ancient ceremonies and the flowers are still used on home altars on the Day of the Dead in Mexico.
Calendula was used for treating ailments of the digestive tract and to detoxify the liver and gall bladder.
Chaya; The miracle Mayan spinach, used for its high content of protein, calcium, iron and vitamins. Chaya shoots and leaves have been taken as a laxative, diuretic, circulation stimulant and to improve digestion.
