The Teachings of
The Sacred Mayan Calendar
The Pleidian Cycle of Hunab k’u
By Aluna Joy Yaxk’in
This is the first article in a series of thirteen, to help establish an accessible, easy comprehension of the teachings of the Mayan calendar. Each article will build upon one another taking you on a journey through the sacred Tzolk’in, the Mayan calendar. Caution – consistently following the Mayan days may cause side effects such as expanded consciousness, due to break throughs in time/space dimensional barriers. This may generate a chain reaction resulting in broader perspectives and cosmic remembrances, in which to operate from, bringing about a non-judgmental, creative, peaceful existence in the face of challenging times. It is time to remember your ancient future and fulfill your solar destiny.
WHAT IS THE MAYAN CALENDAR?
The Ancient Maya, and the remains of their cosmic culture, are still enshrouded in mystery and confusion. To this day, much of what archeologists base their findings upon is founded on guesses, not facts. Theories and speculations fill the history books. It looks like we may never understand what the Maya are saying to us. Like a giant cosmic joke, the riddles and puzzles left behind by the Maya are still as much of a mystery today, as they were when they were first discovered by the Spanish.
Maybe understanding the Tzolk’in with only the mental body was not the approach the Mayas themselves intended. As we can see, the archeologists are still guessing, with decades of research behind them. If the Maya intended us to understand their knowledge of the universe, they would have to leave remains behind that would bridge all cultures, languages, and all levels of education. This is what the Maya have done. Without a doubt I can tell you the knowledge of the cosmos is available to all. It is available to those who can open their hearts to the wonder and curiosity of the universe once again. The encoding of the calendar is intuitive and is remembered with feelings. It is also very mental and can be learned with study. As daykeeper, Hunbatz Men has told me, we need to use all our bodies to remember everything. The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are needed. Without desire, wonder and curiosity there is no intention to remember. Without study there is no understanding. To reconnect to the cosmos and receive information from the Sun, as the Maya do, one must not only place intention by physical study, but desire to remember! As we move our physical bodies into action to study, the intuitive side will just kick in, but desire is most important and quite essential. That’s it! This is what the Maya intended.
The calendar with it’s twenty Sun/glyphs are cosmic memory activation tools that intuitively interacts with your body’s memory, your DNA. The calendar is not only an incredibly accurate map of the cycles of the cosmos, but is also a tool to accelerate and activate your memory into recalling the truth behind the mystery of the cosmos. Each glyph is charged with precise information in the form of feelings or emotions to help active you in a very personal and individual way. Each person will remember their own personal perspective of the truth based on their place in the calendar system. This is not something you need to learn, it is something you will remember.
So here we are, all of us just itching to remember. We have a haunting feeling of something forgotten looming just out of reach, lying just beyond the veil of our own created, limiting reality. I am asking you to have to courage to plow thought this barrier of limitation and remember the totality of who you are, to live in your own personal integrity.
You will need to commit to this for a while. Memory activation does not create instant results. Activation takes place in stages and layers. At first you will find the sacred calendar quite mental. If you find yourself mentally fuzzing out when you begin to place your attention on these teachings, understand that this is a common problem. You are just coming face to face with your own personal limitation program. You are hitting a time/space dimensional barrier and your body is saying ôI can’t do this, I can’t remember everything. I can’t be limitless.” I say you can, and you will. It is you destiny to do so.
This is a new year challenge. Commit yourself to remembering the totality of who you are by following these calendars for one earth cycle, just a short 365 days. Place your intention for just a few minutes every day on the Mayan day instead of the linear Gregorian day. Get your body cycling with the cosmos again, instead of the ticking clock. Move into the undulating, spiraling, ascending energy of the cosmos. Watch the sun rise and set. Watch the moon rise and set. Soon you will begin to dream with more detail. You will feel more deeply. Understand more clearly. You will feel a part of a much bigger whole. You will remember little pieces of information. They will just pop into you head. If this sounds good to you, lets get started.
THE BASICS OF THE SACRED CALENDAR
The Maya understood 17 different Calendars based on the Cosmos. Some of these calendars go back as far as ten million years and are so difficult that you would need an astronomer, astrologer, geologist, and a mathematician just to work out the calculations. Lucky for us we only need to work with three of these calendars. The calendars that are most important to beings of earth are the Haab, the Tun-Uc and the Tzolk’in. The Tzolk’in is the most important and the one with the most influence.
The Haab is based in the cycles of earth. It has 360 + 5 days, totaling 365 days. The Haab uses 18 months with 20 days in each month. There is a 19th month called a Vayeb and uses the 5 extra days. Each month has it’s own name/glyph. Each day uses a sacred sun/glyph.
The Tun-Uc is the moon calendar. It uses 28 day cycles that mirrors the women’s moon cycle. This cycle of the moon is broken down into 4 smaller cycles, of 7 day each. These smaller cycles are the four phases of moon cycle. Portal days (p), on the calendar provided marks days using mathematics of 28 and their fore have a connection with the moon cycles.
The Tzolk’in is the Sacred calendar of the Maya and is based on the cycles of the Pleiadies. The cycle of the Pleiadies uses 26,000 years, but is reflected in the calendar we are using by encompassing 260 days. It uses the sacred numbers 13 and 20. The 13 represents the numbers and 20 represents the sun/glyphs. The Tzolk’in has four smaller cycles called seasons of 65 days each guarded by the four suns of Chicchan, Oc, Men and Ahau. There are also Portal days within the Tzolk’in that create a double helix pattern using 52 days and the mathematics of 28. This sacred calendar is still being used for divination by the traditional Maya all over the Yucatan, Guatemala, and Belize, and Honduras.
During their stay on earth the Cosmic Maya carried the burden of time. Cosmicly aware of cycles of time they were bound, as we are, by walking through time in a linear fashion. They were aware that beings of earth had lost the natural ability to ride the cycles of time/light/energy, to time travel. It is also known by the Cosmic Maya that this present linear fashion of time will transform into multidimensionality, and will not be limited to linear time on earth much longer. Now isn’t this why we came here to remember and to witness at this time? Do you remember? “Evam maya e ma ho” All hail to the harmony of all mind and nature.
Aluna Joy Yaxk’in is the author “The Mayan Suns” a journal based of the sacred Mayan calendar Tzolk’in. Aluna has been receiving information from her “buddies” since she was a small child, but it wasn’t until 1990 that they jokingly informed her they were the Gods of the Mayan Calendar, the Cosmic Maya. She has been working with day-keeper Hunbatz Men on several projects, including The Solar Initiation Journey to Mexico to fulfill the ancient Mayan prophesy of 1995 and calendars studies. Her work has been accepted curriculum at The Center for Mayan Studies in Merida Mexico. She continues to merge cosmic and traditional Mayan based information through her organization Hauk’in Publishing which is dedicated to the rediscovery of the cosmic wisdom of the Maya fulfilling the vision to bridge the gaps between the Earth tribes and the Star tribes.

The Mayan Factor

Here are a few intersesting lines from The Mayan Factor by Argulles:
“ETs, UFOs, the “space brothers” – these are not alien entities, but emanations of /being/ itself. And being is, in its essence, light, radiant energy. During the time that we have spun our historical tale, we have been participating in the unfoldment of a larger being. But by the very nature of the phase of the 5,125-year/5,200-tun galactic synchronization beam in which we have been involved, we have lost sight of this fact.
Spun through the increasingly accelerated phases of the thirteen cycles of this beam (called “baktun” by the Maya), our planet has arrived at an advanced stage of conscious synchronization of component elements. This has been brought about by the most complex forms of DNA, inducing an artificial leap – the sprawl of civilization – which in actuality had one goal – the quickening of the transformation of matter. This is the critical significance of the 13th cycle, Baktun 12, A.D. 1618-2012.
Once this critical transformation of matter was attained on July 16, 1945, two basic processes were set in motion. One involved the materialist aggrandizement of power represented by the entrenchment of the prevalent global industrial-social order; the other involved the dissonant quickening of the reonant field of the planet resulting in a wide spectrum of effects from UFO sightings to increased psychism to tectonic plate shifts and terrorism.
The reason for the intense subjective effects experienced by the human psyche lies in the overall impact of radioactivity and electromagnetic pollution on the infrastructure of DNA, causing increased randomness and entropy of behavior. But this response of DNA experienced as socially disruptive behavior in the human realm, inclusive of rises in the incidence of cancer and new diseases like AIDS, is actually only a complement of what is occuring in the larger host organism, Earth.
The resonant body of Earth, the vibratory infrastructure that literally holds together the sense-perceptible body of Earth, is in a condition of intense “fever” called resonant dissonance. Remembering that the planets function as gyroscopes holding the frequency pattern of their particular orbits, we see that environmentally impactful events since 1945 have actually set in motion a dissonant vibratory wave affecting the overall spin of the planet. If the dissonance is not checked, then, similar to an uncontrolled nuclear reaction, the end-result would be the development of a wobble in the spin and a consequent shattering of the planetary form.
In order to accommodate the increased dissonance of frequency, wave adjustments are set off at the crystalline core of the Earth until a new harmonic resonance of slightly higher frequency is attained, thus accommodating the dissonance and stabilizing at a new level of resonance. If this new level can be attained before further destructive impacts are inflicted upon the planetary field – whether as increased co2 or further nuclear testing – then the planet will have successfully charted the 5,200-tun synchronization beam.”
