Happy Maya New Year, WAXAJQIB B’AATZ (8 B’atz)
Greetings Beloved Kin,
Today marks another end and beginning. We were given the Sacred Right of Choice to rise from the ashes of our past. The way of the Mayan calendars is a Choice to Count the Days and honor every one as a Sacred Event. With every Sunrise we are offered a New Day to Live Again.
The Elders always said that you can change your life in 4 days of Sacred Ceremony. It only takes 4 days of retreat from the world to Remember the Truth of your Divine Identity. It only takes 13 days to see there’s a Divine Meaning and Purpose for Time that leads to the Truth of Answered Prayers.
In the language of the Maya, WAXAJQIB is the Number 8 that means “pure spirit.” The Tzolk’in New Year is a celebration of the Hero’s journey. Since the first round, I’ve imagined the return surrounded by all the “lords of the Day” that were with us every day, and a welcome party waiting to see us turn the last corner.
This is the Monkey’s party. The Sacred Ancestors that have “been there and done that” before are the ones waiting with open arms. For all the Monkey business it takes to find our way back home, they are the Ones who want to hear the WHOLE story and see every battle scar. That’s the heroes story.
