Story : The Mayan civilization was one of the most developed in the world. From their worldview they saw in the nahuals a sacred element.
For the Mayan civilization the nahual of each person was pretty important. It was something that everyone should know and learn to handle. They had to know when they were begotten, the date of birth, the year, the energy that protects them and their mission.
By now the Mayan spiritual guide is called Ajq'ij, the one who manages the time, the one of the sun, the one who works with the days of the sacred calendar, that is, calculates the solar time.
Each of the 20 days of the 13 months of the year has its nahual.
The Mayan worldview points out that the day of each individual's birth brings forces and effects that allow them to carry out their mission, with the protection and intervention of their nahual.
