Notable Quotes related to Mystic 13

The 13-Moon Natural Time Calendar presents the Dreamspell - the interlacing of the 13-moon, 28-day solar/lunar round with the 13-Tone, 20-Tribe galactic round of the Maya.

13 X 20 = 260 distinct energies.This 260-day perpetual count is a perfect model of harmony - serving as the central calendar of the Maya known as Tzolkin (pronounced zol-keen). This galactic count communicates the time ratios and patterns which unify our solar system with other star systems, and with the emanations of life-force from the center of the galaxy itself.

The harmonic numbers of the Tzolkin are as clear as our 20 fingers and toes - digits with which to measure the universe. Our body's 13 major joints, or articulations, move us through the universe. Through movement and measure, we experience each other and ourselves as the universe.

From a whole system perspective, time, humanity, and nature are inseparable. Our physical and emotional bodies are moved by the same lunar, solar and planetary forces. Where we appear separate in space, we are unified in time.

When we structure our lives by the artificial rhythm of the clock and 12-month calendar, we expose our central nervous system, and subsequently, our entire mental-emotional body to the frequency of a machine.

Perfect Periodicity
For every one time we go around the Sun,
the Moon goes around Earth 13 times.

The year has already been divided by Nature-
13 'moon'ths of perpetual harmony.

The 12-month calendar hides the 13th moon. The number 13 is now surrounded by superstition and is considered taboo; unlucky; evil. This fear is reinforced by cultural antiquities like "friday the thirteenth." Often buildings have no 13th floor, or avoid constructing a # 13 apt unit. Why?

The ancient Maya had an entirely different relationship to the number 13, actually revering it at as the Key to Time itself. 13 is the Mayan galactic prime number; the cosmic ratio; the Force of The Universal Movement of Creation; the interdimensional key!

13 Scales of TurtleAssociated with the powers of endurance and longevity, the ancient vertebrate Turtle has 13 scales on its shell. "The first calendar that North American Indians ever had was Turtle's shell...The Earth Mother, who was represented by the most fertile creature of our planet, the Turtle, showed our Ancestors how to mark the passing of each moon cycle. Turtle's shell bore the 13 moons of the year inside of a frame that formed the circle we call the Sacred Hoop, or Medicine Wheel - representing the relationship of all life to all life." -Author Jamie Sams

Turtle IslandThe name of "Turtle Island" to refer to Earth can represent our planet swimming in waves of radiant solar and cosmic energies.

"Without the Thirteenth Moon; without placing the Thirteenth Moon back into our consciousness, we remain absolutely trapped in the complexification of form. With the 13th we have the transcendence and also the circulation of time." -Valum Votan

According to Dr. José Argüelles, PhD.: "The simple and easiest way to reprogram your daily awareness of the actual nature of time is to follow the 13 Moon Calendar."
