It might be that you are going to feel a bit weird on Monday. Different to any other energetic ups and downs that we usually experience, you might feel off track or like you have stepped next to your personal path. The reason for this very unique energetic perception is that on Monday is officially the “day out of time” if you follow the 13 Moon calendar. The calendar divides the 365-day annual cycle in which the Earth revolves around the sun into 13 months of 28 days each. If you do the math, that gives you 364 days. This leaves one day between the end of one year and the beginning of the next that belongs to neither a week nor a month.
Why is this day so important?
Although July 26 marks the beginning of a new cycle, the day outside of time is more important to the Mayans than the Mayan New Year on July 26.
All over the world, people (mostly indigenous) know how to consciously adjust to the natural rhythm of time. This day precedes the beginning of the new cycle, the new galactic year… so it’s also important to prepare for the next year and shed the old, heavy energies you carry in your thoughts and feelings.
Similar to older Western Europe traditions where we celebrate the “Rauhnächte”, the days before New Year´s when we look back to the old year, clear the old energies and start to prepare for the new year, you can view it as a moment of change, projection and evaluation, perfect for letting go of what no longer serves you, people, situations, things,…, and which should not become a part of the new cycle. Gratitude and forgiveness is one of the best exercises you can practice on this day. You may be grateful especially for what has been troubling you, because it has moved you forward. Perhaps it is the difficulties that you owe the most to, for they always provide the greatest springboard in the personal and spiritual development.
Use this day to consciously let go of what doesn´t serve you anymore and then focus on yourself and your TRUE desires. Work with your dreams, goals and hopes to manifest them in the new year.
The day outside of time is also called the day of the yellow seed. It asks us to recognize the power of our thoughts, words and deeds, like living seeds thrown into the field. We can connect and align with Mother Earth on this day, sowing the seeds of hope.
On a spiritual/energetic level, this day offers some very special and exciting anomalities. The Mayans considered this day a spiritual sign of the beginning of the evolutionary process of humanity. As a day BEYOND time, July 25 is extremely energetically charged, causing an uncharacteristic opening of energy portals. This allows us to have an exceptionally intense connection with the spiritual world. And so, the light beings can easier connect with us and align us with the harmony of the universe in its various dimensions of time and space.
The day outside of time portal represents a place where EVERYTHING and NOTHING exists at the same time. You could call it an absolutely MAGIC day!
On the 26th of July a new cycle begins again and with the New Year comes the energy of renewal and inner cleansing which has a great impact on our energetic bodies, especially the emotional body.
When I spent the Balinese New Year on Bali, I was so blown away by the way they celebrate their New Year. Everybody stays home, meditates, leaving the house is completely forbidden (not even for a walk), no social media. In Bali, the New Year begins by retreating from the outer world and completely focusing on the inner world to create a new start.
We can benefit from the wisdom of our ancestors and ancient cultures all over the world. Begin the new year by being mindful and present. Take time to meditate and rest whenever you feel tired. Do not overexert your energies. Like every time when we receive an upgrade, or new energies, the body has to adapt, and this takes quite a while.
