The sun glyphs

It is said that our bodies shelter all faces of the Divine. All types of creative energies are made manifest through our bodies.
The Mayas knew, in their time, that the human body holds the many faces of creation in spheres of light. As I uncovered the sacred calendar of the Tzolkin, I also explored the impact of these sun glyphs on me. The Life Force that moves the Universe in Time spins through us in light and dark, and brings Order into our lives.

At the same time, I learned that Jin Shin Jyutsu® , an ancient Japanese healing art, employs twenty-six safety energy locks along energy pathways that feed life into our human bodies.

My Tzolkin teacher told me about José Arguelles (The Mayan Factor),  who said that we can find the archetypes of the sun glyphs in the 26 energy locks, in the way described by Jin Shin Jyutsu®. So, in one paragraph, Arguelles made a switch from a calendar with certain energies spread out over time, to a matrix for our bodies. This thought intrigued me, but I did not want to believe him without investigating myself.

My investigation was to determine if the quality of the energy points, as described by Jin Shin Jyutsu®, is the same quality as the creative energies of the twenty Mayan sun glyphs in our own bodies. My personal experiences and explorations during the opening of these energy locks have become the foundation for the book Playing with the Life Force.

Our place on the Tzolkin, the Kin, is decided by our birthdates. The Kin is the path of our soul in this life. The energy of Jin Shin Jyutsu® and the sun glyphs together, as I experimented with them, constantly generated new wisdom. This Practice restores the flow of our bodies and synchronizes our lives and our time clocks to the natural flow of the universe.
To emphasize this I replaced the numbers in the figure Mira with the sun glyph symbols.
