Today I asked my Mexihca spiritual teacher and friend Alma if there is a spiritual practice that we can do at this time of Covid19 to help everyone and she responded with this message (which with googles help is translated into English as):
On this 6 day of Cipatli, on the 20-day month of called the Change of the People (Tlacaxipehualiztli in Nahuatl), in the Sun Stone year of 8 Flint Knife:
We must project our renewal in this 20 day month [which started Tuesday at 18:43 in Mexico] to strengthen our systems and vibrate with this universal harmony embodied in our solar stone (Aztec Calendar). Today (on the equihelion) on April 2 and 3 we launch our thought-word for our beginning and renewal of our being and focus with the essence of Xipe Totec ( the energy essence of renewal in the Sacred West direction).
What I understand this to mean is:
It is time to ask for renewal. This time in the calendar is a powerful and special time to strengthen our bodies, our vibrations and our energy systems through renewal. Ask for renewal for yourself, your family, friends, communities, provinces, countries.
Do renewal practices.
Here are the words that Alma sent me in Spanish- Hay que proyectar nuestra renovación en esta veintena para fortalecer nuestros sistemas y vibrar con esta armonía universal plasmada en nuestra piedra solar. Hoy (en el equihelio) el 2 y 3 de abril lancemos nuestro pensamiento-palabra para nuestro inicio y renovación de nuestro ser y centrarnos con la esencia de xipe totec.
She began this practice with these words in nahuatl:
iltze tlatlatzincah. Axcan oc ticateh in chicoacen cipactli in tocempohualcaltzinco Tlacaxipehualiztli ye onhuitz chicome yehyecatl .
I had to look up what Equihelion meant and I found this source: //stroboscopp.blogspot.com/2010/12/it-was-supposed-to-be-comment-to.htmlNB .
equilhelion: from which I quote:
“A cycle specific to human beings is Tonalpohualli, the cycle of human life.
This cycle centers around one quantity—260 days. There are two other numbers integral to this count—13 and 20. Thirteen has two functions, one as 13 x 20 = 260, and 260 + 13 = 273.
To understand their role we need to identify and track the 8 points of vital importance to life on Earth: two equinoxes, two solstices, the point at which the Earth is farthest from the Sun (aphelion), the point at which she is closest to the Sun (aphelion), and the two points at which they are equidistant from Tonatiuh (equihelion).
The aphelion happens 13 days after the summer solstice, the perihelion 13 days after the winter solstice, and both equihelions happen 13 days after each equinox.”
