Introduction A Blog about travels though time... Visions and dreams are to reality what clouds and moisture are to rain, rivers and oceans. This vision started beyond time, perhaps it was always there, it has been blooming in this one lifetime, my life. My life and the place where Tijax is established came together through what seems a series of coincidences, some luck, being in the right place at the right time, the right friends and of course the Vision always there. José Arguelles interprets the meaning of Tijax (Etznab in Mayan) from “The Mayan Factor” a book about the Mayan Calendar as: “Hall of Mirrors, Ritual Pattern of “No-Time”, Ritual Stroke, Ritual Knife, Sword of Wisdom and Purification. North.” From conversations with Shamans I have gathered that Tijax is the symbol for the chipped obsidian or chert stone that was used in healing and bloodletting ceremonies and the sacrificial knives hence the concept of “healing pain”, “suffering”, “cutting through” as in searching for the truth and finally “transparency” and “clarity”.
