Mayan Calender

Did You Know... ... In one year the moon circles the earth 13 times? ... In the current global standard calendar, a month doesn't correspond to one natural cycle? ... The word "calendar" comes from the Roman word, "Calends", which was the name of the account book, the book recording monthly debts and bills to be paid? ... Time isn't money? ... September means seven, but is the ninth month? ... March is named for Mars, the Roman God of War? ... July and August are named for Julius and Augustus Caesar? If today is Monday, June 1st, what day of the week will July 1st be? .... and August 1st? ......... what about November 1st? If you were to build a house, wouldn't you use a ruler of equal measure? The current twelve month calendar is made of months of unequal measure: 31 days is followed by 28 or 29 days, then 31 days, 30 days, 31 days, 30 days, 31 days, 31 days, 30 days and 31 days.

A 13 Moon/28-day calendar is not a new idea. The Druids kept a "tree" calendar, a count of 13 moons of 28 days each, plus one day. The Incans, Mayans, ancient Egyptians, Polynesians, and the Lakota peoples are used a 28-day count. It is called a Moon Calendar because it is based on the female 28-day menstruation cycle, which is also the average lunar length.

Each year, the 13 Moon Calendar remains constant. The first moon, or New Year's day, always begins on July 26. The synchronization or New Year's day corresponds to the rising of the great star Sirius. This makes the 13 Moon Calendar a tool for harmonizing ourselves with the galaxy.



According to High Initiation, it is written that the wisdom of the cosmic light will return. When the human race begins to slip into the darkness of ignorance, oblivion, and despair, it will be the wisdom of the seven brothers of our Father Sun that will shed the great light of wisdom in order to awaken the powers that have remained dormant in human beings due to an erroneous form of education. In this New Age, the Mysteries Schools have the responsibility of reclaiming a confused mankind and leading it through the path of the multicolored light of cosmic education.

Again the time of the Mayan cosmic education has come. Thousands of years ago, the sacred teachings from the cosmos were deposited in many magnetic centers throughout the world: Chan Chan (Peru), Huete (Spain), Tulle (France), Hu-nan (China), Bethlehem (Israel), Tih (Egypt), Mississippi (United States), Humac (Brazil), Nagasaki (Japan), Mul (England), Maya (Russia, Naga (India), and Chukotz (Bering Strait). The names of all these places are of Maya origin, which confirms that, in different periods of times, the Maya were present in these sacred magnetic centers.

For many moons and suns, mankind has been disoriented. In these modern times, it is with sadness that we see how ordinary human beings are manipulated and consistently forced into the abyss of physical and spiritual destruction, or simply used as experiments, by a few groups that control the majority of mankind.

Hunab K"u, who can see and understand everything, knows that the time for the great change has come. The word for us to return to the ancient temples has been received from the cosmos. It is here and now that the great Spirit is beginning to call us back to the magnetic sites. The incarnated Masters are beginning to raise their voices of knowledge in the ancient sites that the cosmic word to attain wisdom in a gradual manner has been received.

Cosmic education will commence again at the crossing of abandoned roads. In forgotten lands the ancient temples will flourish again, the white roads of the High Initiation will be walked on again, roads leading south, north, west, and east. Thousands of people will walk these roads under the celestial vault, heading for the point where the sun rises, awaiting the solar wind. They will hear the solar wind whisper by night, speak with the trees, move as the breeze through dwellings to purify the skeptics, give movement to the clouds, and, when the solar wind reaches those people, it will gently touch their faces to let them know that it is time for the initiation that will come from the sea and from the sky. That will be a propitious time to open Mysteries Schools all over the world.

It is to you, Solar Brother or Sister, wherever on earth you may live, that a brother from the sacred land of the Maya is speaking, to inform you that the Mayan Spiritual teachers, who dwell in the sacred pyramids, have directed that we must unite to walk the path of the light of wisdom, learn again from the wind, the water, the trees, and the sun, and return to the wisdom of life-giving Mother Earth. These spiritual Mayan teachers further request that we are to observe solar ethics to remain as children of the Great Father Sun so that through our children and the children of our children, we can exist eternally.

It is important that you study the sacred earth, where body and spirit live in harmony, and , through meditation, rites, and sacred chants, ask Mother Earth the name of the original dwellers of the area where you now reside. If for some reason, you do not obtain an answer, ask the stones, the trees, and the animals who those people were, and, when you have their name, announce to them with great respect that a school will be established in that area for the purpose of revealing the mysteries of the knowledge deposited by them in that sacred area.

In order to ensure adequate communication for the worldwide initiation work to be done at the Mysteries Schools, we must understand the four apparent movements of the sun with respect to the northern hemisphere (two equinoxes and two solstices). The key dates will be March 21, June 21, September 21, and December 21.

The 13 annual moon cycles must also be taken into account. Each cycle consists of four phases: full moon, waning moon, new moon, and waxing moon. We will refer to the aforementioned solar and lunar data in our communications worldwide. It must be noted that our initiation year is to commence March 21, the first day of the yearly count. After this date, when the first full moon is visible (some time between March 22 and April20) we will start counting the lunar cycles, and after thirteen full moons, the lunar and solar cycles will be completed.

On that first day, March 21. a perfect balance of energy will be present all over planet earth. Working positively with this sacred energy, we can send it, together with our message, to any corner of the world and correct erroneous political systems as well as personal religious beliefs. This energy, which will also emanate from the water, the trees, and the caves, can help us develop our seven cosmic powers considerably, to attain great spiritual power. Only in this manner can we become true cosmic beings.

The solar energy of March 21 and the energy of the first full moon following this date can give us sufficient cosmic vitality to do spiritual and physical work day and night. This sacred cosmic energy can be used to correct the faults in modern society. For example, during the waning moon, we can weaken the ill purposes of this disoriented society. During the new moon, we can bury all negative aspects, both social and personal. We must be ready for the waxing moon. During this phase, we can plant the seed of good in all living beings all over Mother Earth. In this manner, we can use the natural powers of the sun and the moon to produce positive changes in the multicolored Age of Aquarius.

The Great Spirit will also tell us how we can better understand Mother Earth to receive her teachings, which we will use in the Schools of Mysteries, as such teachings will come from the clouds, the wind, the birds, the butterflies, and the flowers. In this manner, this natural wisdom, together with the essence of sacred mathematics, will be conveyed to the sacred human race.

Hunbatz Men



When I went to the Equinox celebrations this year, I was not sure why I was going or what I hoped to learn from this trip to the land of the Maya with Hunbatz Men. I guess, in retrospect, I really went with no expectations. I only went with the confidence that I would learn from Hunbatz Men and the pyramidal sites something I needed for my higher education. I would like to convey to you today the essence of what I learned from teachings Hunbatz Men shared with us this Equinox Celebration in the sacred land of the Maya.

It was amazing to me to be in the Yucatan, at the same place and time, with Hunbatz for the third year in a row but finally grasping what it is he was trying to teach and share with us. I trust that Spirit will speak through me so that I convey to you what I finally learned this Equinox.

The breakthrough for me came when I asked Hunbatz to explain the sacred symbolism of the T. John Majors Jenkins just finished his lecture on his research connecting T, the great cosmic cross, and the "crossing" of the sun’s ecliptic and the axis of the Milky Way Galaxy in which the sun will be at the exact center on the winter solstice in 2012. Hunbatz pointed to my hand and drew a cross on a piece of paper. He said, "You have a T or cross on your hand that the lines on your hand form. Sweat comes out at the center of that cross, but not from anywhere else on the lines that make the cross." Instantly, his saying that connected me with the universe. I understood what was happening in the universe was also happening within me.

The Maya, with their incredible intelligence and their incredible understanding of how the universe works and how we evolve as individuals, were able to draw themselves and others into this incredible oneness with all life through the use of their calendar systems.

I know this sounds simple, or incredible, depending on your perspective. What could calendars have to do with oneness with all life or oneness with the universe? But, if you can try to put yourself into a space of feeling what these words are trying to convey, you may grasp what and where Hunbatz helped us go on this trip.

The Maya were intimately connected to cosmic consciousness and the heart of the Universe through their deep love for and observation of the heavenly bodies above and the Milky Way Galaxy. Through plotting and tracking the greater celestial star systems and galaxy movements and connecting them with Earth’s movement and seasons, they were able to create calendars that conveyed this energy and information. These calendars drew them into the greater whole and were used as stepping stones to reconnect and pull them back into the stars.

As we become familiar with and use the calendar systems of the Maya, they reconnect us to the galaxy and the cosmos. (I am not talking only about connecting intellectually.) As we understand and work with the calendars we open ourselves to deeper levels of consciousness. We return to this deeper awareness and understanding of our own innate and true dimension of consciousness, back to our true home among the stars.

This happens at a cellular level. We become once again a piece of the greater reality. We become a cell in the body of God. Contained within that cell is all of God and all of the universe. We become no longer separate and no longer alone, but one with the greater whole.

For these reasons, Hunbatz Men keeps trying to help us understand and work with the Maya Calendars. He is trying to help us return to wholeness and oneness with the universe.

The Maya were multidimensional beings. They used their calendars as tools to convey and anchor this cosmic consciousness into third-dimensional reality. As we learn to use the Mayan Calendars, we reconnect ourselves with the universe and the timeless Maya. We become one with this greater consciousness, and we realize we are not separate from it.

These teachings from the Maya that Hunbatz Men shares with us are not just symbolism and mythology from the past. They are real tools and concepts that can pull us into a greater reality.

When Hunbatz tells us the sacred symbol T is also a symbol for the tree and the Maya saw the tree as a brother and knew how to communicate with and ask help from the tree, he is not speaking symbolically. He is talking about a real, living relationship between real, living beings: the trees and the Maya.

After meeting Hunbatz for the first time a couple of years ago, I wrote to him a thank you letter telling him about how I appreciated what I learned from him and about what I was working on within myself and in my life. My letter must have conveyed some of the desperation I was feeling after that first trip to the Yucatan. That trip definitely altered my consciousness, and I was trying to come to a point of balance within myself. He answered my letter in third-dimensional reality, but he also sent to me, on another level, a blast of golden light that came from a group of trees in my backyard. I saw and felt this in a dream, even before I received his letter. When the letter arrived, his message linked with the dream, which allowed the energy to break through my emotional block. The flood of tears I experienced in my backyard with Father Sun and the trees released the rest of what I was carrying.

I did not understand the depth of what occurred with the trees until after returning from my latest trip to the Yucatan and rereading Hunbatz Men’s book, Mayan Science/Religion. When I reread the section that discusses the sacred T, I began to understand things I had not previously understood. The following passage stood out: "When our Mayan ancestors defined this link between the human and the tree, it was not based on simple speculation, but from a root of the truth. For, if animals are vibrant with energy, so, too, are plants. If animals subsist on vegetal elements and if plants serve to cure our physical and psychic maladies, they are certainly our protectors. In fact, they are veritable companions and valiant protectors! Because through the sacred Hunab K’u, the Only Giver of Movement and Measure, plants help the human being defend its life, its very existence. Moreover, in moments of anxiety or desperation, the human can turn to the tree for help and, being a relative, it will provide help." (If you were here with me right now I could show you the group of trees in my backyard. They are frequently filled with fire flies, which look like fairy lights in the warm summer months.)

Clearly the trees had helped me, a relative in a time of emotional desperation.

I was humbled and grateful for the healing that came to me that day. However, I feel I only now grasp the depth of what occurred when the trees actually sent golden healing energy out of caring for another being such as themselves.

I trust that you can feel and understand what Hunbatz Men has shared with us from the Sacred Land of the Maya. I trust that you will learn from him how to work with and relate to the sacred calendars of the Maya. Through this work you will bring yourself back into your greater awareness as a multidimensional being.

The Oracle of Galactic Consciousness

Description of oracle card set:
When all 20 solar seals are understood, and used as a daily oracle, the total "Soul Archetype" emerges into active consciousness. Embodied within each of the solar seals are the hidden forces of the universe. These forces comprise all movement and all measurement in the known universe. Each solar seal is a symbolic representation of a unique aspect of the forces of creation.

All 20 representations of these forces, when integrated into the human psyche, comprise all the known forces of the universe. Each solar seal, when incorporated into daily action and practice, will act as a metaphor to aid in becoming that force.

When all 20 solar seals are fully understood, a daily drawing of a card can bring about a new sense of empowerment on the deepest subconscious levels to begin our ascention into a new galactic awareness. The Maya were totally aware of their place in the cosmos, and used the glyphs to communicate their profound understanding to their people.

Your Destiny is written beyond the stars
Mayan Signature Portraits

Knowing who you are on a soul level is the first step to becoming in tune with your life’s purpose. You are the only one who has the key to unlock the mysteries to your own empowerment. Your Galactic Signature and Soul Portrait is a representation of who you are, encoded in the cosmic matrix. It is your Stellar DNA that is transmitted through the language of light. The day you were born holds a vibrational frequency or waveform that is your own personal signature which exists independently of the form you embody in any given moment in time. It is also a way for you to access dimensional frequencies and in effect it will allow you the ability to “phone home” and heal all aspects of separation and disconnection from your soul’s purpose. Transformation and healing happens “outside of time” and being able to tune into who you are as a dimensional being will help to heal the many layers and levels of your multidimensional consciousness.
