Dear Mayan Majix Friends,



Today is 1 - Crocodile (Imix) Begins a New Tzolkin (260 day cycle)



Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Imix (Crocodile/Waterlily)


Day 1 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: May 27, 2010

Year Bearer:  11 Manik

 

Trecenas are thirteen-day periods in the Tzolkin. Each Trecena starts with the Number 1, but with a different Day Glyph. As a wave of the Thirteen Heavens, the underlying energy is governed by the
First Day Glyph of the Trecena and influences all thirteen successive Day Glyphs. Being aware of the predominant energy of the First Day of the Trecena, we can align our intentions with that energy
and allow our goals to manifest.

 

This Trecena starts with 1 Imix (Crocodile/Alligator/Waterlily) – Beginning - Initiating new
possibilities and concepts – Receptivity and Trust, Earth Mother, Nourishment, Protection,
Primordial Ocean of Possibilities.

 

The Classic Maya believed that an earth monster or primordial Crocodile floated in the ocean of
the Underworld. He carried the Earth on his back, nourishing and protecting all life. Thus, Crocodile supplies humanity with the underlying primal feeling of our connection to nature and Mother Earth.
The glyph itself represents a Waterlily, a symbol of beauty, abundance and growth, and the
possibility of ascension out of the primordial soup of creation.

 

Out of the void, a spark of fire falls into the primordial ocean of possibilities and creation spirals into life.

With 1 Imix we are starting a new Tzolkin round of 260 days which ends on 13 Ahau. 1 Imix is a
logical place to begin counting the days. The number 1 and Imix both symbolize beginning.
According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom, “this is an arbitrary point of origin. The rhythm
of the Sacred Calendar is circular; many contemporary Calendar shamans insist that it has neither beginning nor end. Nevertheless, we will follow tradition and use 1 Crocodile as a convenient ‘beginning’.”

 

Another representation of the Trecena is that of a creative wave beginning at 1 and ending at 13,
with the numbers 6, 7 and 8 representing the crest of the wave. The crest could be interpreted
as a strong influential energy, although the underlying influence on the Trecena would still rest
in the beginning. In this Trecena, the crest falls on 6 Cimi (Transformation/Death), 7 Manik (Deer/Healing Hand) and 8 Lamat (Rabbit/Venus). It is interesting that transformation, change
and new beginnings, falls on the crest of the wave in the trecena Crocodile which is the
beginning of the Tzolkin. Deer symbolizes groundedness of the four-legged animals and the
healing hand.  Rabbit energy symbolizes abundance and the pure joy of being alive. The
energies of this Crest propel us to change in order to heal and live in abundance.

 

As we journey through each day of this Trecena,

 

1 Imix (Crocodile) – May 27, 2010

2 Ik (Wind) – May 28

3 Akbal (Night) – May 29

4 Kan (Lizard) – May 30

5 Chicchan (Serpent) – May 31

6 Cimi (Death) – June 1

7 Manik (Deer) – June 2

8 Lamat (Rabbit) – June 3

9 Muluc (Water) – June 4

10 Oc (Dog) – June 5

11 Chuen (Monkey) – June 6

12 Eb (Road) – June 7

13 Ben (Reed) – June 8

 

Focus on the energies of Crocodile in order to open our hearts and live from our hearts. Crocodile
offers emotional, physical and spiritual security during the vibrational changes occurring now with
planet Earth and concurrently within ourselves.

1) Mayan Elders will honor the Conscious Convergence:

Three Mayan elders, Don Alejandro Oxlaj, Don Rigoberto Itzep and Hunbatz Men, have pledged to participate in the Conscious Convergence, July 17-18, 2010 through performing ceremonies on these dates. The three elders are among the most respected and well-known representatives of the Mayan people yet having somewhat different roles in this tradition.

a) Hunbatz Men is probably the most well-known of the Yucatec Maya elders and is the initiator of the Maya Mystery Schools, (see http://www.themayas.com.mx/).

b) Don Rigoberto Itzep leads the Wajshakib Batz (8 Monkey) ceremonies in Momostenango in Guatemala, which plays a critical role in maintaining the continuity of the calendar through the initiation of new daykeepers (see http://www.maya-portal.net/blog/ken/initiation_of_daykeeper_report_from_momostenango
or http://www.kachina.net/~alunajoy/wajshakib-batz.html).

c) Don Alejandro Oxlaj, Wandering Wolf, http://www.shiftoftheages.com/, is the spokesperson of the 440 person strong Mayan Council of Elders in addition to being Grand Elder of the Continental Council of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas.

Very likely the Conscious Convergence will be observed also by many other elders all over the Mayan lands as the word goes around. The participation of Hunbatz Men and Don Alejandro takes on a special role in that it establishes a continuity to the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 in which they both played an instrumental role.

The Conscious Convergence Core Team is happy to announce the support of the Mayan elders for the July 17-18 event,
and through this we want to extend a call to all indigenous peoples in the world to be part.
