THE MAYAN SIXTH DAY Begins on
Tzolkin Date: 13 IMIX
11th of 13
Heavens (7 Days and 6 Nights of Creation) of the Galactic Cycle
The Sixth Day
heralds a time of flowering for the plant - awakening, unfolding, opening up to new possibilities. Most scholars use the words
“enlightenment” and “renaissance” to define this creative period. Historically,
the Sixth Day on other levels or cycles corresponded to the invention of tools,
first attempts at agriculture and building shelter; the European Renaissance
itself; and the flower children movement of the 1960's.
This Heaven of
Light, the Sixth Day, begins with 13 Imix on the
Sacred Calendar, the Tzolkin. The number 13
represents co-creation, unconditional love and culmination of spiritual enlightenment.
The number 13 is the final number in the sequence of 13 numbers of the Tzolkin. Imix is the first of the
20 day signs comprising the Tzolkin. Imix is symbolized by the Crocodile and the Waterlily – beginning, receptivity, trust, Earth Mother, nourishment,
protection, primordial ocean of possibilities.
The intention of the
enlightenment or ascension energy combined with the primal energy of Imix gives us the ability to feel a new era unfolding.
INTO THE SIXTH DAY
As we transit from
the twilight of the Fifth Night into the twilight of the Sixth Day, our burdens
become lighter as we discard what no longer serves us in order to evolve to the
next stage of growth in this new reality. Just as a plant follows the Fibonacci Sequence by looking back in order to evolve, humanity
has a unique opportunity to look back to our ancestors and incorporate
ancestral knowledge in order to evolve into our true destiny of being
co-creators and caretakers of this beautiful planet we call Earth or Gaia.
acceleration and the concrescence of novelty becoming more apparent to
individuals, and as more individuals begin to open to awareness and the
increased photon field that we seem to be moving through, we realize that our
minds alone cannot keep up with the evolutionary changes. It has become
necessary to rely upon our instincts and feelings to navigate through this new vibrational field.
In order to continue
to the next growth stage in this fantastic journey, we must not only
incorporate ancient wisdom by performing sacred ceremonies and rituals, but
also tune into our instinctual knowledge. As the number of choices we are
called upon to make increase, let our intuition guide us along the ascending
path. Consciously choose to take the high road – be positive, loving and
compassionate – choose love over fear or anger.
The Fifth Night saw
the beginning of the end of dominance. Dominance on every level is beginning to
fall away: dominance of governments, religions, corporations, individuals, ego. Each individual will begin to realize their own worth
as dominance falls away. Each will feel their own purpose, their own
responsibility, and begin to realize their full potential as loving human
To maximize the
incoming influx of light energies and to better handle the rapid changes, it is
very important to stay grounded. Incorporate a daily movement practice such as qigong, tai chi, yoga;
meditation; perform ceremonies and rituals, even just lighting a candle and offering
a prayer; practice kindness and compassion; maintain a good diet and a positive
attitude; and follow the Mayan Sacred Calendar – the Tzolkin. As we go into the Sixth Day, let us each be
like the bud of a flower, ready to open to our full beauty. Let us embrace the
ascending spiral of light with a flame of hope and gratitude in our hearts.
