The Energies of the Maya Calendar Glyphs The Nawals
Each of the 20 days of the Cholq'ij calendar is governed by
a Nawal, which is an energy or spirit of nature, and its corresponding element: water, fire, earth or air. In this way, for example, the Nawal for I'x is the jaguar and its element is water, the Nawal for Aq'ab'al is the bat and its element is fire, and N'oj__which is governed by the coyote__has the element of air. The interpretation of the energies of the day glyphs is based on the intuition, knowledge and sensitivity of the Ajq'ij, who is the person that deciphers them. Although they repeat on a cyclical basis, it is never a mechanic interpretation. Following are the 20 Nawals and their glyphs, and an interpretation of their energies. B'atz' is the thread of destiny. Everything that has happened to us in the past, anything that is happening to us now, and everything that will occur in our future__and whatever has or will occur in the history of the world__is the essence of B'atz'. B'atz' B'atz' exists so that creation may fulfill its fate. It is the thread of time that unfolds before us and weaves our histories; it is the beginning, the start of life, and original wisdom. The upper part of the glyph depicts a cone with time rolled up within it. As it unrolls downward it passes underneath the earth

Our Nawals In the Maya worldview, the Nawals are energies or incorporeal beings that coexist with us throughout our lives. They take the shape of the animal that rules the Sacred Calendar on our day of birth, or of the wind or fire, among many others. They are the reflected image of our consciousness, and their existence is so deeply entwined with ours that if they are hurt or destroyed we can fall ill or die. They reveal themselves in our dreams, from where they protect and guide us. Some Ajq'ijab (spiritual guides) are so powerful they can take the physical form of their Nawal.
