Foreword

In Lak’ech Ala K’in – the Living Code of the Heart In Mayan tradition, there is a greeting that many people working with Mayan wisdom know. It is the law of In Lak’ech Ala K’in, which means I am another yourself (A modern day interpretation). It also means I am you, and you are me (A traditional Mayan interpretation). We have come to understand that this Mayan greeting is an honoring of each other. It is a statement of unity and oneness. In Lak’ech Ala K’in mirrors the same sentiment by other beautiful greetings such as: Namaste in East India, Wiracocha by the Inca, and Mitakuye Oyasin by the Lakota. Regardless of the culture, placing the hands over the heart always accompanies one of these sacred greetings. The more I walk the Mayan path, the more I understand the depth that In Lak’ech Ala K’in teaches. This greeting has become more than a simple, honorable Maya greeting. It has evolved into a moral code, and a way to create a positive reality for all life. As we near 2012 with all its doom and gloom prophecies, we have a moral obligation to Spirit to live according to the code of In Lak’ech Ala K’in. It is common knowledge these days that every action we take in our lives affects all living things. We understand that if we act negatively, our actions impact all life negatively. When we act positively, we affect all life in a positive manner. When we live the Mayan code of In Lak’ech Ala K’in, we know that every action we take is out of respect for all life, and we are living and giving from our hearts. We can give our hearts in a positive manner every day by saying In Lak’ech Ala K’in to each other, to the trees, to the sky, to the birds, and to the stars. You can greet each sunrise by saying In Lak’ech Ala K’in. Each and every day we have together is sacred, so acknowledge this day by giving it your heart. Remember, when you give in this way, you are also giving to yourself! You are not giving your energy away to something separate from yourself. You are giving to another part of yourself! I understand the challenges in staying positive in these days, wherein the energy is so compressed that we can hardly breathe. But there is one simple exercise that can turn it all around for us. Each day, simply walk in gratefulness. We can say In Lak’ech Ala K’in to that which gives us life everyday, and that is the heart of the Great Spirit. Instead of solely taking from the Great Spirit by asking for insight and

13     


direction, give your heart, love, and appreciation in return. You will be amazed at the results. If we open our hearts and send gratitude, it opens all doors that were previously closed to us. Remember, you are a part of the Great Spirit! When you give to Great Spirit, you are giving to yourself. We can practice In Lak’ech Ala K’in tirelessly because when and what we give to others is giving energy to ourselves. When we give, we receive. So how do we know if we giving in the correct manner? It is really simple. When we are energized by our giving, we know we are giving from our hearts and from the code of In Lak’ech Ala K’in. If we feel drained or exhausted, it is possible that we give out of fear, a lack of something, a sense of obligation, ego, or a need to be accepted or liked. The more one practices In Lak’ech Ala K’in, the clearer we will become about our motives of our actions, and the more we will receive. Remember: what goes around, comes around exactly the way it was sent out. If you don’t like what life is sending to you, look at what you are sending out to life. When we begin to live and practice In Lak’ech Ala K’in, a lot of our old ways of doing things will no longer work for us. For instance, we cannot act like victims anymore, and we cannot live out of fear either. We find ourselves no longer preparing for disaster; instead we anticipate a glorious future. It is time for us to rewrite the prophecies. They have become obsolete. The past will become just a bad dream, and the future will become a beautiful vision, which we will create right now. When we practice In Lak’ech Ala K’in, we stop being neutral in our world because we understand that Spirit works with those that take action. We begin to take action by adding to the positive experience of this dimension. So what kind of world do you want? Don’t just stand there waiting for the world to appear in front of you. Spirit helps those who help themselves. It is up to us. When we practice the moral code of In Lak’ech Ala K’in, we are producing and sending positive and vital energy that can literally transform our troubled world into Paradise. When we live from In Lak’ech Ala K’in, we are putting to use our natural ability to create our reality. We are affecting the collective consciousness of humanity in a positive way. The Cosmic Maya, also known as the “Star Elders” or “Invisible Council”, understood this natural power to create their reality. Their sacred calendars mapped the natural laws of the universe. Now it is our turn to come to this understanding. It is time for us to walk as

14     


the Star Elders did so many years ago. The time has come for us to change the world. The more humanity begins to live In Lak’ech Ala K’in, the less we will think in terms of our separateness. There can be no competition, jealousy or envy between us, because we are pieces of each other. We can share and help each other with our connections, ideas and resources without fear that there will not be enough to go around. When we live the reality of unity, abundance and wholeness, there will be unity, abundance and wholeness! The more of us that participate in the creation of a better world, the quicker it will arrive. We will have peace, love, harmony and unity, and will finally have arrived home. – Aluna Joy Yaxk’in

Happy New Blue Electric Storm Year

[In the 13-Moon Calendar, the year is named after the Tone and Seal of the first day of the year. Every year, July 26 coincides with the Solar Seal Red Moon, White Wizard, Blue Storm or Yellow Seed. These Seals determine the type of energy prevailing in a particular year.]

Translated liberally, this year brings the activation of transformative energy within each of us, our inner ‘storm power’, and the little part of our soul which knows we are going to change. How? By connecting with each other and acceleration of the unleashed transforming energy (catalyzing). The objective is transformation in the service of all. Precisely 260 days before the beginning of the year, on 3 Storm, the storm of 8/9 November raged over Europe. Was this a foretaste of the energy of this year? The Mayans used to anticipate the start of a Storm year with bated breath. The lord of that year was viewed as one of the worst of the underworld – Uac Mitun Ahau! The Storm, with its thunder and lightning, is a violent transformer. Although the goal is always purification, it can be very impressive. It sweeps along everything within its reach. Perhaps that is a good thing, because before the end of this cycle in 2012, there is yet much that needs to be transformed. Those who have not yet faced up to the need to change how we interact with each other will not be able to avoid that necessity this year. Be aware that each experience of your own transformation, is a reflection of what is happening in the world. Every problem you solve by yourself is one less problem on this earth. 26     


Storm and thunderstorms played an important role in the creation of life on Earth. During the prehistorical period of the primordial soup, thunderstorms caused a reaction among inorganic materials to create the initial building blocks for life on earth. Even now, thunderstorms are of vital importance to us. The electrical discharges, caused by thunderstorms worldwide, create vibrations of the electro-magnetic fields between the earth’s surface and the ionosphere, the upper hemisphere. These electromagnetic vibrations are called the Schuman resonance. Imagine a string reverberating (as the heartbeat of Earth) at a basic frequency of 7.83 Hz. The frequency may change with the number of thunderstorms in the Earth’s atmosphere. It now appears that plants, animals and humans respond to variations in the Schuman resonance. Frequency variations can influence the way we function. Astronauts spending time in outer space experience rapid fatiguing and disorientation. After installing a gadget that creates these waves artificially, astronauts returned without experiencing the above side-effects. But Storm has another benefit: after the storm, it is always quiet and clean. The air is suffused with negative ions, tiny negatively charged air-particles. This has a beneficial effect on humans. These negative ions are also released at waterfalls and during heavy rainfalls. The resulting air energizes and relaxes our bodies. Storm is the second last of the 20 Solar Seals. Sun is the last one. Sun represents unconditional love, the universal flame within each of us and the bond that links us all to each other. Sun is fine state of being, also called the state of ‘enlightenment’. The Mayans view this as an indication of the new cycle after 2012. It is up to us to take the final step now. Kawak is the great purification before attaining the stage of enlightenment. It is the essential preparation before a shift in consciousness can occur. The Maya do not regard reality as a concrete given, but rather as something that is constantly being created. The power of our collective spirit can change reality. The Maya maintain that a fundamental shift of dimensions is imminent and that powerful galactic forces are combining, in order to assist us humans to change. This year, Tone 3, the Tone of Activation, will activate our transformation. The power of the storm will shake us up, but it will also help connect us with each other. Enormous energy will be released, which can be applied in various ways. The choice is up to each one of us individually.

This year is the fifth year of the seven years of prophecy, 2004 - 2011. These are the seven years of the Mystery of the Stone. Learn more about it online on: http://www.timeisart.net/ >> Study Archive >> Mystery of the Stone for Beginners 27     


How to start?

I always advise people to begin by tracking the Wavespells because you then find yourself within the energy field determined by the first Solar Seal for 13 days. See how you recognize the features of the Wavespell energy in these 13 days. See if you can feel the 13 steps of creation. current Moon in Gregorian date, symbol and text

My purpose for this year is:

Can you see how your path is connected to the Universe? Don’t hesitate to follow it. It may be that you are easily distracted from your activity. After all, so much is happening simultaneously! Remain focused and follow your path. Stubbornness may be in your way during these 13 days. You might meet people who are totally convinced of their own ideas and who refuse to let go of them. Are they reflecting what you are doing yourself? Use the absorbing quality of Mother Earth to let this stubbornness flow into her. Earth will transform your suspicion into faith and she will remind you of your path. Earthquakes may appear out of nowhere, causing major shifts in your work or in your personal life.

Day out of Time

photo: Dez Pain, Australia

13 Moons of 28 days amount to 364 days. The only day left is the Day out of Time, celebrated each year on July 25. In the 13-Moon Calendar, July 26 is the first day of the New Year. July 25 is the day in between two years, a Day out of Time. It’s a day on which connections are made: the old is let go of and the intention for the following year is set. It is a day of being conscious. The Day out of Time is the ‘Galactic Be In’, when we celebrate that we are all artists, co-creators of the

July 25, 2009 - Blue Electric Night, kin 3 Tone 3 is the Tone of activation. Night is the power of Darkness and the domain of the dream. In the darkness one switches to other senses. The information acquired via alternate senses can be surprising. Have no fear, enter, be quiet and experience! Have you noticed that there is never a shortage in your dreams? That there is always enough? You subconscious knows this and Night asks you to let this seep into your consciousness. Do not base your choices on fear, fear of a lack of money, fear for a lack of love, fear of inadequate attention: all is available in abundance. This is what we will activate and accelerate this day: the loving abundance and the beauty of creation.

One Creation as Galactic beings, living as human beings on Earth, together with the four-legged ones, the winged ones, the crawling ones, the finned ones of the waters, the standing ones, the stone people, the plants, the water, air and fire. This day is a day for peace and culture and is celebrated all over the world. Many thousands of people get together through the power of love and telepathy, in order to let our human culture bloom in harmony with the Earth.

World Day of Love and Thanks to Water Dr. Masaru Emoto has determined July 25 as “World Day of Love and Thanks to Water”. Join to say “I love you” and “Thank you” to all the water on Planet Earth and fill it with the highest vibration (HADO) of Love and Thanks that we can possibly experience.

The 365 day year

Organization of months and weeks As with the Gregorian calendar, every Moon consists of four 7-day weeks. The difference is that the first day of the year in the 13-Moon calendar begins on July 26 (a Saturday in 2008). This day should appear in the top left-hand corner of the 13-Moon calendar. After tests and an opinion poll, we realized that this method caused confusion when planning daily activities. For practical reasons, we decided to work with the week schedule, as we know it from the ‘ordinary desk diary’, starting on Monday, the first working day. Next year we will start on Sunday, to synchronice with the 13Moon calendar.

Days of the week Different cultures have different names for days of the week. The 13-Moon calendar was developed to enable us all to live synchronously according to one calendar. The 13-Moon calendar offers alternate names for days of the week:

THE 13-MOON CALENDAR

Journey Board & Castles - The cycle of 52 The Journey Board is another way to represent the Galactic Calendar. Here you see 260 cells as well. At first glance you will notice five radials, each with four arms containing 13 cells. This Dreamspell follows the Wavespells, i.e. 5 x 4 = 20 Wavespells of 13 days. Each radial with four Wavespells is called a Castle. Each Castle lasts 52 days. Each castle has its own color and four gates (portals): the first Seals of the Wavespell. The gate with the same color as the Castle is called a Magnetic Gate.

Blue Western Castle of Burning Magnetic Gate: Blue Monkey Court of Magic – Power of Turning Around

How to interpret As always, we begin in the East, i.e. the Red Eastern Castle. Herein we begin at the centre at the Red Kin: the Red Dragon (Kin one of the Tzolkin – see arrow). On the 14th day we take a magic flight to the Northern arm of the Red Castle, i.e. the White Wizard Wavespell. After walking through the castle for a total of 4 x 13 = 52 days, we jump to the next Castle (red white-blueyellow): The White Northern Castle. There again we begin at a Red Wavespell: the Red Skywalker Wavespell. In this manner, you continue to follow the chart through all five Castles. Thereafter, you take a magical flight to a higher level – again, to the Red Eastern Castle of Turning. Green Central Castle of Enchantment Magnetic Gate: Red Moon Court of Synchronization – Power of Magical Flight

The beauty of the Dreamspell is that one can feel the cycles of time passing: it’s as an eternal movement in spirals through time. The smallest cycles of redwhite-blue-yellow can be clearly followed and the Wavespells are transparently comprehensible: 5 x 4 Wavespells (each 13 days) = 260 days. When you live with the calendar you begin to notice that the castles are in a sense like seasons with their own character. Paying attention to which Wavespell you are in is important but it is also useful to know which Castle you are in. 156

THE 13-MOON CALENDAR

So, what is going to happen in 2012? “I find that I am increasingly asked this question. In response, I like to refer people back to their heart for their own prophecy. As every man and woman is a star so we are all prophets of creation. (...) As the Hopi say “We are the ones we have been waiting for”.   – Ormungandr Melchizedek, Pan Scotland

José Argüelles states: “[...] 2012 is the call from the Source to remember our universal oneness, to recall that we all have been here before, that we have been travelling on many worlds, that we are interplanetarian interdimensional travellers.” “[...] The point of the fulfilment of the prophecy of 2012 is that we have to do something. It is not a matter of passively waiting for it to occur. We have to take spiritual action, mental actions ourself. We have to know that there is something we have to do.” – Quotes from video ‘The 2012 Prophecy and the Spiritual Journey’, with José Argüelles. View on internet Google video, search Signs-146D - title01 (1 h. 37 min. 32 sec.)

According to Ariel Spilsbury, we are heading for a quantum leap in human consciousness: “We are co-creating the end of the consciousness ‘movie’ that ends around 2012. We are the directors of the transformation, the ‘imaginal cells’ within the ‘nutritive soup’ of the chrysalis, which will give birth to the butterfly of a new consciousness on Earth.” Aluna Joy Yaxkin says: “We will feel a greater desire to serve others, no matter how challenging the circumstances or cost. This is the beginning of the end of self-serving actions and out of control materialism. We will find it less desirable to simply take from others without providing a mutually beneficial service. Our main focus and passion will not be about getting… it will be about giving… and in the giving we receive, and we ALL win. This point alone will really begin to shake up the world’s systems. As we find ways to serve others, we will also discover that we will become abundant ourselves.” “If you knew what I know about the power of giving, you would not let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.”  – Buddha 160     


2012

In the meantime, most people have heard that the Maya calendar ends on December 21, 2012. One encounters this date in numerous sources, e.g. games, films, spiritual and non-spiritual books. 12-21-2012 is the date that the long count Maya calendar ends. On December 21, 2012 a new cycle of 26.000 years commences as well as a shorter cycle of approximately 5.200 years. The Maya count this day as 13.0.0.0.0, the calendar having started on day 0.0.0.0.0. Therefore, 13 baktuns have passed, 1 baktun equaling 144.000 days. According to the Gregorian calendar, this is the equivalent of 3114 B.C. and 2012 A.D. (totaling 5126 years). Not only the Maya, but also (among others): the Egyptians, Sumerian, Hopi Indians and the Zulus left inscriptions of the date 2012 on their temples and scrolls. It is certainly a special date. Some people have unjustifiably asserted that December 21, 2012 represents the end of the world. This is incorrect as the following day simply heralds the new calendar with day 0.0.0.0.1. However, the Maya viewed the new calendar as a new period, as the beginning of the 5th world. (They do have tales about how the first, second and third world ended with natural disasters.) Moreover, the final date cannot be determined with certainty by the exact day. December 21 was probably chosen because it represents the winter solstice and the date is attractively full of the integers ‘1’and ‘2’. However, another special feature of this day is that the Earth and sun are in alignment with the center of the Milky Way. Hunab K’u, the lord of creation, resides in the center of the Milky Way, also referred to by the Maya as our cosmic womb. This alignment of the southern solstice with the center of the Milky Way is rare, only occurring once every 13.000 years. As we are so close to Hunab K’u on this date, as well as commencing a new cycle, it is possible that we may enter a new dimension. We could be shifting from the 3rd to the 4th dimension. 161

Buddha was asked the following question: ‘Which meditation do you and your students practice?’ He answered: ‘We sit, we walk and we eat.’ The interpellator remarked: ‘But sire, everyone sits, walks and eats.’ Buddha replied: ‘When we sit, we know that we sit. When we walk, we know that we walk. When we eat, we know that we eat.’ Usually, we lose ourselves in the past or we are transported to the future. When we pay attention to and are in direct contact with the current moment, our insight into what is happening within us and in our surroundings becomes more profound. We then gradually experience harmony, joy, peace and love. - Thich Nhat Hanh, 11 Worldbridger

“The soul always knows what it wants and as soon as it awakens, demands its fair due. All people have something that will not be soothed by the first impression conveyed by the senses. Some listen to the silent voice, others do not. In the beginning it is painful and bothersome. That is the first threshold. When humans are at the beginning of pure life, the power drawing us to return to sleep are fortified.” – Judas in ‘The Flight of the Feathered Serpent’, Armando Cosani, 1953

White Wind – Ik’ (iek’) Ik • Iq • Ehecatl Wind, air, breath, sometimes also represented as character T

Key words: nurture, birth, being

Key words: communicate, spirit, breath

Affirmation: I am IMIX: DRAGON. I am your life source and womb. I support you; I feed you.

Affirmation: I am IK’; WIND; I am your Breath of Life and your Spirit. I inspire you to create your own truth and reality.

Power: Dragon is the ancient one rising from the deep ocean. In the beginning there was Dragon. He asked no questions, he knew exactly what he needed. He was. He trusted life unconditionally. Imix knows the beginning of time, from where we came and where we are going. Dragon is the power of the Primal Mother or the Inner Mother. She feeds and takes care of you with her body. She grants you the gift of existence. Personality: Dragon-people like to tell others about new discoveries and about their feelings. They are energetic, creative, nurturing and protecting, sometimes even in a parental way. They might forget to nurture themselves and to ask for what they really need. They are sensitive people and it may benefit them to be alone more often. A Dragon who lacks a sense of wellbeing may suffer from excessive passivity and a feeling of ‘not wanting to be here’. They may take their parental role too seriously and have forgotten their own need to feed their inner child through laughter and play. Imix is challenged to be free of the feeling of rejection. Guidance: Focus on self-nurturance and accepting the nurturance of the universe. Open your being to be intimately supported and provided for by life.

Power: Wind is like the Breath of Life necessary for all that lives. When God created man, he blew life into him with his own breath. Breathe in this Spirit, and inspiration will come your way. Breathe out and present your breath as a gift to Great Spirit/Hunab K’u. Your words will flow with this stream. Wind also means change: to trim one’s sails according to the winds. Personality: Wind-people are very communicative and mental. They like talk and change. They are adroit, clever and have many faces. Wind is very idealistic and even romantic. Wind is literally like the wind: you cannot get a hold on him. He has trouble committing, making up his mind and taking responsibilities. It is important for Wind to keep moving. If the wind stops moving, there is no wind. So continue developing yourself. You will find answers through education. You will also find peace through contact with the Great Spirit and the God of the universe by means of ceremonies, prayer or the practice of philosophy. Then you can become the warm breeze gently touching the skin of those you love. Guidance: Focus on Spirit’s presence by acting on your natural inspiration. Let Spirit’s breath guide you to communicate your truths.

Yellow Seed – K’an

Key words: dream, abundance, intuition

Key words: target, flowering, awareness

Affirmation: I am AKBAL, NIGHT; I am your place of mystery and unconsciousness. I give to you dreams and silence.

Affirmation: I am KAN: SEED; I am your creativity and sexuality. I give to you the power of growth and reproduction.

Power: The dark Night brings intuition and dreams. In the realm of dreams, there is only abundance. Everything is perfect. Night dares you to let go of your fear of shortage. Night represents the dark inner side of the temple of Self. Dare to go in and receive the gifts that are awaiting you. There is only abundance for those who have courage.

Power: The flower will be born from the seed, provided some conditions are met, such as fertile soil for nourishment, space and time to grow and sunlight to warm itself. The seed carries within itself all conditions necessary to grow. It is the seed of your creative and sexual power. Seed brings you the happiness of Self, like a baby who discovers his own hands, needing nothing else…

Personality: Night-people are strongly focused inwardly. They are thorough, thoughtful and self-reflective. Night feels a strong need to withdraw completely from time to time. He is a hard worker and does not easily give up. He finds it difficult to share and to inform. Night can be quite conservative; it is not easy for him to accept that other people have other opinions. Although he doesn’t like to settle down in one particular place, it will do him good to create a safe haven, a place to return to where he feels emotionally secure and at home. Guidance: Focus on entering the sanctuary of self - the inner darkness - the place of mystery within you. Unite with your stillness and intuition.

Personality: Seed-people are enthusiastic, energetic and social, dedicated and naughty. They are natural leaders who like to be in the centre of attention. Seed is a good networker, he recognizes the talents of others, but when will he start developing his own creative powers? He demands a lot from himself and he likes challenges. He cannot stand superficiality since he takes life quite seriously. Try to laugh and enjoy. Learn how to be patient. Seed has much ancient physical energy. Try to conduct this energy and neither let it turn into sexual obsessions, nor depressions. Outdoor activities, sports and artistic expressions can help. Guidance: Focus on the power of your intentions. Target your desires. Clarify. Plant the essential seeds. Expand and receive the natural growth of these desires.
