Red Earth Wavespell of Grounding

by Mariela Maya


Are you experiencing synchronicities lately? Maybe you were thinking of someone you hadn’t spoken for a long time and that person “suddenly” called you? Or you needed some guidance and “out of the blue” you got exactly what you wanted in the most unexpected way? And, how many times do you catch yourself saying “Wow! What a coincidence!”? Well, as the saying goes, “coincidences do not exist”, and now it’s the perfect timing to start paying attention to those amazing synchronicities!


The Tzolkin, Sacred Mayan Calendar, is a cycle of 260 days composed of 20 glyphs by 13 numbers. Each day combines a glyph and a number giving to it a specific meaning as an invitation to connect with certain aspects of our being. Every 13 days, there is a shift of energy and the glyph that falls on the first day sets the purpose for the following almost two weeks. In the modern application of the Tzolkin, the 13-day period is called a Wavespell, and there are 20 Wavespells in a cycle. If all this is new to you, the best approach is by playing with it instead of trying to understand technical concepts. You will see how magically and synchronically everything unfolds!

The Red Earth Wavespell is the 13th Wavespell out of twenty in the current cycle based on the modern count. From May 25 to June 6, 2016, we are invited to stay grounded and pay attention to the synchronicities as they unfold in our path! Let’s see what each of the Wavespell’s day represents in this current cycle by combining the Tzolkin’s 20 glyphs with one of the 13 numbers.

Wednesday, May 25, Red Magnetic Earth
Purpose: the first day of any Wavespell sets the purpose for the specific period of 13 days. During the Wavespell of the Red Earth, the purpose is to deepen our connection with Pachamama, Mother Earth and with our core in order to recover our own natural rhythms and restore inner cycles. Do you feel part of the Web of Life?

Today is also the beginning of the Yellow Castle of Giving. More information about it at the end.

Thursday, May 26, White Lunar Mirror
Challenge: the second day of any Wavespell is the one that shows us the extremes. Sometimes the mirror reflects us back things we don’t like and we tend to “disconnect” and feel polarized. Can you use your discernment to know what is your projection and what just “is”, so you can “cut” with what is not reflecting your values?

Friday, May 27, Blue Electric Storm
Bonding: the third day of any Wavespell is the one that “connects the dots”. As storms are necessary in Nature for her to recalibrate and regenerate, “storms” in our lives help to transform what now longer serves us. Are you open to change when needed?

Saturday, May 28, Yellow Self-Exiting Sun
Shaping: the fourth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives shape and form. And, after the storm, the Sun shines! The Sun helps us the reconnect with Nature again so that we can shine brightly in our own Light and give form to what we want in our lives. How can you bring your ideas down-to-earth?

Sunday, May 29, Red Overtone Dragon
Empowering: the fifth day of any Wavespell is the one that empowers. Mother Earth is very loving and nurturing and she provides us with everything we need to be here and enjoy, not only to survive. Are you open to receiving her gifts and blessings as you take care of her and your own self?

Monday, May 30, White Rhythmic Wind
Balancing: the sixth day of any Wavespell is the one that brings balance. Nature is constantly talking to us and offering messages that help us to feel balanced so that we can move in the right direction. Are you paying attention to the symbolic signs?

Tuesday, May 31, Blue Resonant Night
Aligning: the seventh day of any Wavespell is the one that helps us to become centered. The more aligned we are with our true essence, the more abundantly synchronicities unfold in our path. Do you take time to be still and centered to attract the abundance of the Universe and within you?

Wednesday, June 1, Yellow Galactic Seed
Integrating: the eighth day of any Wavespell is the one for integration. As seeds grow stronger in healthy soil, so do our intentions blossom when we are clear with what we want. Do you trust you will get what you are looking for?

Thursday, June 2, Red Solar Serpent
Pulsing: the ninth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives the last push prior to manifestation. In order to achieve our purpose, we need to be grounded and present with all our senses. Are you listening to your body and following your instincts?

Friday, June 3, White Planetary World Bridger
Manifesting: the tenth day of any Wavespell is the one that manifests. The more we notice and acknowledge synchronicities, more often they show up helping us to achieve our goals. Can you let go of control so things can be revealed on other levels?

Saturday, June 4, Blue Spectral Hand
Releasing: the eleventh day of any Wavespell is the one that liberates. Honoring and deepening our relationship with Pachamama help us to heal the planet and ourselves. Are you taking care of Mother Earth by changing harmful habits?

Sunday, June 5, Yellow Crystal Star
Sharing: the twelfth day of any Wavespell is the one for cooperation. When we play in Nature and consciously connect with its living beings, our senses are heightened and our creativity thrives. What beautiful things can you  share with others today?

Monday, June 6, Red Cosmic Moon
Transcending: the thirteenth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives closure. And finally, as we reawaken our true essence and feel interconnected with all that is, we evolve and things flow easily and naturally into our lives.

Beginning of the Yellow Castle of Giving

Every four Wavespells, of 13 days each, a new Castle starts. The Wavespell of the Red Earth initiates the Yellow Castle for the next 52 days. From May 25 to July 15, 2016, we can relax after the intensity of the Blue Castle of Transformation and put into practice the lessons learned as we share our gifts with the world.

Connecting with indigenous wisdom and flowing in our own rhythms, I look forward to sharing with you a special afternoon at Body, Mind & Soul this Saturday, May 28, where you will learn how to make your own dreamcatcher, a beautiful and meaningful Native American sacred object, as you consciously infuse it with your intention. For additional information and to sign up, click on the dreamcatcher.

Happy synchronicities!

In Lak’esh means “I am another yourself!”, a Mayan greeting that recognizes the Divine in each living Being. It’s a message of Unity that reminds us that, when we give, we are also receiving. In this way, the Mayan honored and respected each other, reinforcing the belief that we are all interconnected: what we do to others and to our environment will also affect ourselves in the end…

Munay means both ‘Love’ and ‘Beauty’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Munay, translated as ‘To love’, is one of the three principles of the Andean way.
