The Cho q’ij is a calendar with 260 days or energies: the 20 days in the Mayan month or winal, multiplied by the 13 days of the week (20 x 13 = 260). The winal arises from the convergence of the 10 cosmic energy currents and 10 telluric energy currents. It is also related to the 10 fingers on our hands, which are connected to the cosmos, together with our 10 toes, which are connected to Mother Earth. The 13 days of the week arise from 13 main joints in the human body: 2 at the ankles, 2 at the knees, 2 at the hips, 2 at the shoulders, 2 at the elbows, 2 at the wrist and 1 at the neck. Each of the 20 nawales, or days, in the Cho q’ij is preceded by a number between 1 and 13, creating a calendar of 260 days. Once the calendar cycle ends, it repeats again without interruption. This system of measuring time does not consider the positions of the sun, moon or stars because it is a dimensional-engery calendar, not an astronomical calendar. ~ The Book of Destiny by Carlos Barrios Written at the request of the Mayan Elders, by a member of the Guatemalan Elders Council and Mayan priest Carlos Barrios, The Book of Destiny is a tool to help people understand their life purpose and to use this profound knowledge to make the best of their time on Earth. According to the Mayan Elders, at the moment of birth every human being is given a destiny. Our life challenge is to develop ourselves and our skills in order to fullfill this destiny, thus fueling our individual contribution to the planet. At the heart of The Book of Destiny is the sacred Mayan Calender, an extraordinary tool that allows readers to discover this destiny, along with their special Mayan symbol, origin, and protection spirits that accompany them through life.
