The Ajmaq is a day of reconciliation. It is a great day because in
our world, in our way of living, we make many mistakes. That day is special
to guide us towards carrying out good actions and avoid doing evil : it teaches
us not to look for problems with our brothers and sisters. This day orders us
to act well and in goodness, to be an example for others ; not to stain our destiny.
Act well and in goodness and you will harvest wellness, goodness, harmony.
have to show respect to every human being the same way : the talls, the smalls,
men, women, elderly people, parents, children, teachers and authorities ; they
all deserve respect.
If you sow evil, you will harvest evil. With the
same intensity that you act, you will collect the fruits of your actions. If
you kill with iron, you will be killed with iron ; if you kill shooting, you
will be shot dead. If you cheat people, you too will be cheated by people. What
you give is what you get, so do good, be an example and always you will be blessed.

Day of the grand-parents/ancestors, of forgiveness, of the passed away, of the strength
It is the Symbolic day of the moral strengths ; it is the memorial of our passed
away grand-parents. Ajmaq is the forgiveness and the sin. It symbolizes as well
the day of each past ; of the past which started with our first grand-parents/ancestors
from the beginning of the World. The deceased people represent the memorial of the
past that guide the present and help for the improvement of what will come in
the future. Ajmaq is consciousness, ancestral wisdom, sagacity, caution, balance,
talent, cosmic strength.
For the grand-parents/elders, the greatest mistake and irresponsibility
is the non service to the Heart of the Sky and the Heart of the Earth. In the
classic Mayan World, Ajmaq was the day when people asked for forgiveness to
Mother Earth for all the mistreatments and abuses generated on her by people
; as well, it was the day when people thanked Mother Earth for the benefits provided
by her, in order to be in Harmony with her.
Ajmaq is the day when we think of
the pardon ; when we call the ancestors to offer them holy presents, as well to
tell them our story : Ajmaq is a day of profound, deep thoughts.
This Day, the ancestors interfere in people's lives, checking and watching over their behaviours
to make them the most peaceful and just possible.
This day symbolizes the Divine Grace which comes from the pardon.
that day, we ask for the peaceful rest of the passed away and their role of
intermediaries for the offenses and sins committed, not to happen again.
is the most appropriate day to forgive and be forgiven. It is the day to cure
all types of illnesses ; it is the day when the family problems can be solved ;
a day to ask for material and spiritual strength. As well,
Ajmaq is the day of Harmony with Mother Earth.

ceremonies are carried out to thank for the sons and daughters that we have ;
we ask for their health and long life.

The Mayan Cross of the AJMAQ
The person bor non a day Ajmaq is conceived a day Q'anil and his/her destiny
is ruled by a day K'at. Good dose of curiosity. Its dilemma is not loosing himself/herself
between the illusion of the material World and the connection and awakening
of his/her Spirit and internal Light.
The Q'anil, as the sign of conception, gives the seeds
which will develop a slow project, but a sure project in any of
the aspects of his/her life.
The energy of the Tz'i', on its right side, shows a tendency
to follow, obey, and worship the material law. Its right hand has
the power and authority to cure any illness of organic origin.
The energy of the Iq' on its left side, impulses him/her
towards mysteries and spirituality, creating an expansive mind and
a universal consciousness.
The K'at, as its energy of destiny, puts him/her the challenges
and the knots. The task is to learn from all those knots and strong
experiences put by life and undo the knots, correct the mistakes
and overcome all the challenges. The curiosity of Ajmaq and the
web of the K'at are an alliance which is difficult to control.
