Chicanaui Yeyan Tlaltekyoliztli: Nine Earth Life-creating positions

 

Chicanaui Yeyan Tlaltekyoliztli

Nine Earth Life-creating positions


On June 21 Earth entered an astronomical position called solstice, the first day of summer. Thirteen days on July 3 Earth is farthest from the Sun. This is called an aphelion. Between the solstice and aphelion is when the Tlalocs are honored.

Summer ends and Fall begins with a position called equinox, when day and night are of equal length. Thirteen days later Earth enters an equihelion position, when the distance between Earth and Sun is the same as it will be 13 days after the Spring equinox.

Fall ends with the Winter solstice, the birth of Huitzilopochtli. Thirteen days later Earth enters her closest position to the Sun. This called a perihelion. Spring begins with the next equinox. Thirteen days later Earth enters her next equihelion, when the distance between Earth and Sun is the same as it was 13 days after the first day of Fall.


Earth’s ninth special position occurs only between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer. It is the solar
zenith, when the Sun is directly above at noon and objects do not cast a shadow. At Chalchihuites (Zacatecas, Mexico) the zenith and summer solstice happen on the same day.

Xicalli: The Natural Ways of Mother Earth, Father Sky

 

“Don’t call them ‘old ways’ or ‘ancient ways.’ Call them Natural ways. They are not old, they are Natural. They are ways to help us live in harmony with Earth.”

Thomas Banyacya, Hopi elder

 

Understand Creation, her invisible and visible forces place us in a better place to participate with Earth’s Life-giving cycles. Much of the framework to do this was guarded and passed on by our Nahuatlaca ancestors who constructed this knowledge across thousands of years of experience and five centuries of brutal repression by western colonialism.

 

We are coming to the “end” of an important period in Earth’s dance with the Sun, her grandmother Moon, and his sisters the stars. Here is a review within the context of other Natural cycles.

 


Nine days before the Winter Solstice (birth of Huitzilopochtli), Earth begins a significant internal change that prepares her for receiving the solstice sun and eventually use that radiant power to renew that region of Earth, a process which culminates with the Spring equinox (when Tlazolteotl and Meyahuel integrate the forces from above and below for the creation of Life).

 

The nine days of Huitzilopochtli are part of a 13-day cycle before the Winter Solstice. On the ninth day there is manifestation of an integration involving Earth’s tonalli (solar vibration), ihiyotl (gaseos formation), atlachinolli (the electrified forces in water), and teyolia (electromagnetism). This can be detected at the bottom of Earth’s waterways, whose movement is detected and monitored by Tlalzolteotl’s Wolf, of one her animal companions.

 


It is important to note that this 13-day cycle is preceded by a 260-day cycle which began after the first day after the last Spring equinox. In this way, Huitzilopochtli’s birth mirrors a human gestation cycle (260 day of formation and 13 days of internal forces integrating). Thirteen days after the birth of Huitzilopochtli, the integration of those invisible Life-giving forces rise from inside Earth to her surface. It is at this time that Tlazolteotl’s Jaguar brings this force on his head.

 

This Tlazolteotl “season” occurs to the northern half the Earth during December and January and then to the southern half during July and August. It is important to know that this season is manifested in regions, not just the entire hemisphere at once. Our Nahuatlaca ancestors where careful always to identify and begin relationships with the “jicaras” or Xicalli (centers of life) and begin a relationship with the Invisible Forces of those Xicalli.

For our west Texas southern New Mexico community this Xicalli is Hueco Tanks State park.

Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative

EHECATL 
El Viento de Aztlan 
Year Four Reed
2003
 Primavera - Xihuitl Nahui Acatl  - Spring
Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative

Year 4 Reed, Day Two Crocodile

Wednesday, March 12, 2003

 


O’odham Jeved (Territories of the O’odham Nations) Izkalotlan, Aztlan - Emerging from a three-day traditional gathering of Indigenous Nations and Pueblos, a legation of Indigenous Peoples initiated today a global Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative intended to restore the principles of "yectlamatcayetoliztli" (PEACE) as a mandate of humanity from the future generations. The proclamation was made from the NAHUACALLI, Embassy of the Indigenous Peoples located in Phoenix, Arizona.

 

"We must disarm the global regime of nationalism of the state. The psychologies of hatred and competition under which the government states of the world would have us sacrifice our humanity and our children to senseless wars will no longer be tolerated. As Indigenous Peoples of the world, we further challenge the government states of the United Nations system to criminalize the destructive impact of warfare upon the ecosystems of the Earth itself, by defining appropriate international legal protocols regarding the conduct of warfare such as the Geneva Convention." Said Tupac Enrique Acosta, member of the Xicano Nahuatl Nation.

 

To implement the Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative, representatives of the diverse and distinct Indigenous Nations attending the launch of the global campaign, moved out from the Nahuacalli embassy in the Four Directions, with assignments to convoke the traditional spiritual leadership from around the world to engage in the restoration process of Peace and Dignity. The first objective of the Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative is to make known to the conscience of all humanity that the calls to war by the government states will not apply to the Indigenous Peoples globally, and will not be answered.

 

Instead, the Indigenous Nations of the Great Turtle Island Abya Yala [Americas] propose that the indigenous nation confederations from around the world rise to reclaim the destiny of the future generations, by invoking spiritual and moral authority as the protectors of the Mother Earth. The Indigenous Peoples of this hemisphere have maintained such a spiritual, cultural, and political confederacy since time immemorial. This confederacy is known as the Confederation of the Eagle and the Condor.

 

In terms of communications, the IPPI has implemented a hyperspace linkup, and will be delivering a message to the United Nations representatives of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues under the Economic and Social Council on May 15 in New York. The Nahuacalli in Phoenix, Arizona will serve as clearing house for the first phase of the Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative.

 

Referring to the Xiuhpohualli, the count of years of Izkalotlan, Aztlan which correlates to other counts of calendar systems among the Maya and Nahua Nations, the legation travels now to fulfill an ancestral mandate called the prophecy of the Sixth Sun given on August the 13, 1521 in Mexico.

"It is the dawn of the Sun of Justice. The first rays of light from the East have been seen, they have been felt," said one youth who has made a lifelong commitment to the goals of the initiative. "Now is the time to go forward in a sacred manner. A new world is about to be born."

Xihuitl Matlactli Tochtli Izkaloteka 

 

 

Xochimilco Izkaloteka

“Auh ceppa, ipan ce citelalli…”

“Once, upon a star…”

 

The starlight that is captured by the human eye is a flower.

 

Among all of the living creatures of our Sacred Mother Earth, the human being is unique in the ability to reflect upon and appreciate the great beauty of life in all of its forms and dimensions. The complementary symmetry and diversity of the flower is a universal symbol for the beauty of the natural world.


The fundamental forms of life on earth emerge from the interactions of earth and water, wind and fire which are also known as the four phases of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.

 


Yet another scientific description refers to these ecological interactions as a constant wave pattern of energy systems that undulate from the lithosphere to the hydrosphere, producing the atmosphere which generates the biosphere.

 

All of the human cultures of the world are expressions of the ancestral search for the dimensions and fluctuations of the planetary pattern.  Among the Nahuatlaca Nations, this journey produced the Tonalmachiotl which can be understood as a loom upon which the horizons of human experience are woven into knowledge, understanding, and beauty.

 

The narrative of the Tonalmachiotl speaks of four suns, four previous epochs of human history from which the Fifth Sun emerged. Within the counting and recounting of the horizons of the Izkaloteka, we have now arrived at the threshold of the House of Dawn of the Sixth Sun.

 


The flower of the human gaze into the heavens also produces a seed of awareness that when cultivated, creates a consciousness of the gazer as elemental to the world of beauty. It is the gaze that creates the beauty.

 

Our Father Sun is also a star. One not so very far away.

 

 

 

Xochimilco Izkaloteka

“Auh ceppa, ipan ce citelalli…”

Erase una vez…”

La luz de las estrellas que capta el ojo humano es una flor.


Entre todos los seres vivos de nuestra Sagrada Madre Tierra, el ser humano es único en la capacidad de reflexionar y apreciar la gran belleza de la vida en todas sus formas y dimensiones. Las formas fundamentales de vida en la tierra surgen de las interacciones de la tierra y el agua, el viento y el fuego, que también se conocen como las cuatro fases de la materia: sólido, líquido, gas y plasma.

 


Otra descripción científica más se refiere a estas interacciones ecológicas como un patrón de ondas constantes de sistemas de energía que ondulan desde la litosfera hasta la hidrosfera, produciendo la atmósfera que genera la biosfera.

 

Todas las culturas humanas del mundo son expresiones de la búsqueda ancestral de las dimensiones y fluctuaciones del patrón planetario. Entre las naciones náhuatlacas, este viaje produjo el Tonalmachiotl, que puede entenderse como un telar en el que los horizontes de la experiencia humana se tejen en el conocimiento, la comprensión y la belleza.

 

La narración del Tonalmachiotl habla de cuatro soles, cuatro épocas anteriores en historia humana de las que surgió el Quinto Sol. Dentro del conteo y recuento de los horizontes de la Izkaloteka, hemos llegado ya al umbral de la Casa del Amanecer del Sexto Sol.

 

La flor de la mirada humana hacia los cielos también produce una semilla de conciencia que, cuando se cultiva, crea una conciencia del observador como elemental del mundo de la belleza. Es la mirada la que crea la belleza.

 

Nuestro Padre Sol es también una estrella. Uno no muy lejano.

 Seas of Emergence 

 

With what words the sky should fall upon?

 

Cloud spirits to carry them,

 

Falling away, falling away,

 

Falling away,


Falling away

 

To the sea and


Dawn...

 

Rain of Time

There is no such thing as seven seas. There is only an integral planetary hydrosphere of cyclic states of water systems in phase that are manifested in accord with natural laws. Thus, it is here-now where and how the Collective Consciousness of Humanity and the spirit of all life is manifested since time immortal.

Water is Life.

The spirit of water is the medium of life on the planet.

Para descansar en la playa
