Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Akbal (Night / Hearth)

Day 183 of the 260 Day Tzolkin
Gregorian Date: January 13, 2013
Year Bearer: 13 Caban (Earth)

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 Akbal (Night/Hearth) – Introspective Dreamtime, Darkness, Stillness, Sanctuary, Temple, Travel the Void Within to Birth New Ideas, Travel the Underworld in Search of Wisdom.

Carlos Barrios in The Book of Destiny states “This glyph signifies the owl and represents light and dark at the same time. The two circumferences at the top represent the energy of creation, and the dots below represent receptive energy.”

The Popol Vuh (Maya creation legend) relates the story of the Hero Twins (two brothers) who travel to the Underworld where they are challenged by the Lords of Darkness to a game of handball. They spend several nights in different houses of the Underworld facing and conquering magical tests. They eventually win the handball game, but due to trickery of the Lords of Death, they are ritually slain - only to return to life again. In Jaguar Wisdom, Kenneth Johnson explains: “Thus, with this legend, the House of Darkness is the place where we face the perils of the soul, our personal netherworld where the ego dies only to be reborn in different form.” The day sign Akbal symbolizes the Underworld or House of Darkness.

Another Maya name for this sign was Utoan, meaning heart. The Aztec deity associated with Akbal was Tepeyollotl “Heart of the Mountain.” This deity was the Guardian of Caves and was also known as the Earth Father or Lord of Animals. His voice of thunder echoing in the caves and mountains was associated with drums. Akbal is also known as the Guardian of Dawn and the Guardian of Dusk, the magical transition periods when darkness becomes daylight and daylight becomes darkness.

“This is the day to ask for clarification regarding our path, to ask for fresh opportunities to renew our life, to achieve clarity, to bring light into the darkness, and to reveal mysteries. It is a good day to ask for stability and to find a good job.” Carlos Barrios The Book of Destiny

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 Lamat (Rabbit/Venus), 7 Muluc (Water) and 8 Oc (Dog). Lamat is also known as Venus which symbolically represents the cycle of death and rebirth to the Maya. Venus shines as the evening star, disappears and then reappears as the morning star. Muluc represents water as a sacred natural force giving life or taking it away. Oc is the energy of Dog, faithful companion who carries the torch lighting the pathway through the Underworld. As we search for inner wisdom, know that the fire of faith guides us through the darkness in order to rebirth our souls into the light.

As we journey through each day of this Trecena:

Update From Kenneth Johnson on Curandera Project
Momostenango, Guatemala:

Kenneth Johnson

I have just returned from Chiapas. I interviewed a curandero who learned his technique of healing with stones from the Lacandones, the so-called "Stone Age Maya" who until fairly recently lived tribally in the jungle and hunted with bows and arrows. I also interviewed an "energy healer" from the Tzotzil Maya village of San Juan Chamula who provided me with a lot of excellent information on cosmology.

Now I am back in Momostenango and have been interviewing an herbalist. Her information goes so deep that I have a virtual "K'iche' Herbal Manual" on my hands! While previous books on Mayan healing have been based on material from the Yucatan, which has a jungle flora comprised of plants unavailable in the US or Europe, the K'iche' live in a temperate mountain zone and the plants they use are pretty common everywhere.

Recently I visited a specialist in the Mayan sweat lodge tradition, which is quite different from the lodge practices of most North American groups.

And today, we happened upon something thoroughly unexpected. It has long been known that Mayan shamans use dreamwork to monitor the progress of their apprentices, but the details have never been previously recorded. We have come across a complex teaching regarding dreams as tools for diagnosing mental states and psychological issues. Interestingly enough, this Mayan theory of dreamwork is based on the tzolk'in. What does it mean if you dream of wandering through the desert on an Ik day? What does it mean if you dream of discussing ideas with other people on a Caban day?

The shaman talked for two hours without stopping and provided us with detailed dreamwork interpretations for all twenty day signs.
