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.
