New seeds in the Mayan Calendar

On 4th December 2012 at sunset we are entering the cycle of 1 KAN – the ripe yellow corn or seed – in the traditional Tzolkin count of days of the Mayan Calendar. The Maya revere corn as their main staple cereal, the very ‘staff of life’.
The 1 KAN cycle passage calls us to look at the crop circle phenomenon which has been developing since the 1980‘s. In the South West of England, where most crop circles have been appearing, we warmly welcome the messages of these wonderful formations in our fields and some have had distinctive Mayan features.

The crop circle season usually starts in May in the yellow rape seed flower fields. The crop circle below appeared on 4th May 1998 in the beautiful sacred area near Silbury Hill, a man-made pyramid which is part of the Avebury megalithic stone circle complex.

It is the very first crop circle I visited at the time of the international Mayan conference weekend. It held a clear message for me and this what I wrote about it :

“That Monday, we were on the bus driving towards the megalithic site of Avebury when suddenly, we saw on the side of the hill a crop circle fresh from the night before. In the vibrant yellow of a rape seed field, next to the sacred site of Silbury Hill, was the radiant torus formation later known as the ‘Beltane Wheel’.
This solar wheel contains 33 ‘flames’ which perfectly divide the inside of two circles. In relation to the themes explored during the weekend Mayan conference, one of the many possible interpretations of this formation was that it symbolically represented the alliance of the 20 Solar Glyphs and the 13 Numbers of the Tzolkin sacred Mayan Calendar.”

Extract from the book ‘Messages of the Maya Cards

When recording cycles of time one of the main focus of the ancient Mayas was the galactic dimension. It plays an important part in their cosmology as the First Mother and is featured extensively in their art as the G of the spiraling galaxy. The extraordinary crop circle below illustrate this pattern. Furthermore in the middle, in the Mayan or Hopi handshake, two hands also form a G.

In the same field a few years later the ‘Mayan headdress’ formation appeared. This beautiful crop circle included the same celestial G. We definitely have to turn our heads again towards our cosmos!

On the threshold of a previous 1 KAN cycle I was focusing on the next article to write. It was the summer season 2011 and a delightful crop circle appeared three nights before the shift to 1 Kan. This formation below on the left was the virtually exact replica of a design which was ‘given’ to me in 2005 when I was working on my computer programme. Indeed this pattern appeared in a fraction of time and space when I was using the graphic zoom onto my image for the Number 13 in the Maya Cards. Perfect!

This image is like the release of the seed during the end of the cycle – as symbolised by the number 13 in the Tzolkin – during the potent times we are in.
Once again the signs of spirit and in the fields show that we just have to be thankful and trust the universe.
