A Time of No Time

A Time of No Time

Our New Relationship with Time and the Mayan Calendar

by Ixchel Tucker

The end of times … as the Mayan Calendar is completing … we come to a time where there is no time. Our relationship with time has changed. It is no longer the linear time we have become so accustomed to. Time as a construct of the mind no longer exists.

Truly it never did. Our idea of time was an illusion that was created for our convenience. It helped us to see the world as cause and effect. It helped us to move along from point A to point B. And it helped us work in cycles of growth and evolution.

What if none of that was ever true? What if we could truly “be” with what is, right now and always?

We have lived with our lives focused on past and future. We’ve all gotten used to planning things out and having “agreements” that things will happen in certain ways, at certain times, all ordered and playing out as we think they should. We set goals, make agendas, and set appointments according to these ideas of time.

Yet the native and indigenous cultures of the world had no need for clocks. Even their calendar systems, such as the Mayan Calendar, were following a Sacred Time. They were (and are) connected to their intuitive senses, to their environments and things happened when the time was right. Could we learn to live that way in our modern culture?

The Mayan Calendar is not the “end of the world”, though it has been described by some as the “end of time” (linear time). Consider what this would mean for you. Most of us have some intellectual idea of what this would be, but very few can grasp what it truly feels like and how to live it.

Have you noticed that your own relationship with time is shifting? You may notice things like:

  • Your memory and connection with events of the past has shifted. Your past doesn’t have as much pull on you as it has before. (This can be very freeing!)
  • Things may feel like they are happening so fast, or they may feel they take forever. And some things may feel both ways at once.
  • You may feel no connection with yesterday or tomorrow.
  • You have a stronger sense of where and what you should be doing. As you act on this you will also have a stronger relationship with “real time”.
  • You can no longer plan and know what you will be doing very far into the future. However, you will know in the moment exactly what to do. As you work with this your sense of knowing will get stronger and stronger.
  • Synchronistic experiences increase. You may think of something you want or need, or someone you want to see, and suddenly the Universe lines up and everything is happening in a Divine Order.
  • Manifesting and the power of creating your desires is also speeding up. As you become clear about your desires the way to bring them about shows up.

The key is it keeps coming back to YOU. It is your clarity that is needed, as well as your increased attention and action on your intuition. When you don’t know yourself, when you don’t know what you want, your confusion will reflect in what comes into your life. When you don’t act on intuition, you will have more challenges arise. It is a time beyond what we’ve experienced before, with more opportunities than ever to create the life we’ve truly wanted. It is time to bring as much clarity as possible to what that is.

If you’re finding yourself wondering, unsure of your next step, not knowing how you will do what you feel called to … focus on that clarity in you that “knows”, deep down what it is you want, and then turn it over and let the Universe bring it to you.

When it feels difficult just remember it is our relationship with time that is changing. Let yourself be with that, meditate with and sit with it. Let yourself flow with this new relationship with time. You’ll likely find that it is a lot of fun!

The time is NOW!
