July 25th - The Day Out of Time


The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali

On my journey to live more intentionally and soulfully - I now plan my life by the 13 moon cycles each year. It helps keep me focused and grounded and reminds me to celebrate the wins, release what no longer serves my purpose/vision, and REST every 28 days.


Along this path, I love learning new things... This morning, I was blessed to learn something I’m so excited to share.


Did you know?

Today is a sacred day! 


July 25th is called “The Day Out of Time“.  It is the culmination of the 13 Moon Calendar year, originated from the Mayan science of time, and closes 13 moons of 28 days = 364 days. 


Sirius (the dog star) rises with the sun on this day.


Today is considered a day out of time - an extra day - the 365th day, the last day of the galactic year in the Mayan calendar... Are you as intrigued as I was?


As a day free of time, it’s believed to be divinely charged with spiritual energy and a divergent opening of energy portals which allows a more intense connection with the spiritual world.


Today, Earth realigns with Galactic time and is a day to pause and release old energy, forgive the past, and move on into a new cosmic year. 


It’s compared to the 31st of December of the Gregorian Calendar, and, as so, it’s celebrated by people of all cultures who recognize the importance of a natural reckoning of time.


"The Gregorian Calendar is a political calendar of taxation and war derived from Babylonian timekeeping, and instated by the Vatican as a correction to the Julian calendar, which failed to account adequately for the solar year. The Gregorian too, fails to equal the mathematical superiority of the Mayan timekeepers in regards to its accuracy, but even worse, it regards time as linear like itÕs predecessor. Its measure is based on the 12:60 ratio, which measures time as space and eliminates the integration of the 13 moons with the solar year. What seems a harmless oversight, in fact has a tremendous effect on the consciousness of humanity. Operating in an irregular and uneven shuffle of months, with no recognition of the symbols from which it is derived, time can only be viewed as limited." Quoting this article.


Are you feeling inspired to celebrate and honor this day, too?  Join me in a burning ceremony. 


Here is what you will need:

  • Candles to light up your space

  • Incense or Palo Santo (please only use ethically sourced products)

  • Your favorite writing pen

  • Strips of paper (I like repurposing junk mail envelopes or using natural items like river birch bark or leaves)

  • A heat-safe bowl filled with water (please be very careful out there!)

  • Matches (the intentional striking of the match is ideal. A lighter will do...)

  • Journal


I'll be releasing the following:

  • Fears

  • Limiting Habits

  • Negative Thought Patterns

  • Unrealistic Expectations

  • Traumas

  • and anything else that bubbles up that I am ready to release!


Then, I will burn them one by one.


What are you releasing today?

If you feel like sharing - drop it in the comments below. I’ll add it to my prayers today!


Wrapping You in Love + Light,
