For getting an overview of the "landscape" one climbs up to the top of a high hill, so one can see better the bigger landscape picture.
The chart below is an overview of the Mayan Calendar 260 days on a diagram map so one can see the entire design layout.
In the next section we will zoom in on the specifics.
For this general map of the 260-day calendar has key sections highlighted.
The map below has the 20 Mayan day-signs across the top and are read left to right.
From the first day-sign DRAGON go right, across to the 20th day-sign SUN.
At the top of the chart are the four colors:
red - initiate
white - shape
blue - multiply
yellow - ripen
The four-medicine hoop GATEways, "Go West" etc., correspond to compass directions and medicine hoop directional Gateways,
and they function also as the Year Bearer day-signs:
red SKYWALKER spring = Gateway to the East-gate days
white MIRROR summer = Gateway to the South-gate days
blue NIGHT autumn = Gateway to the West-gate days
yellow STAR winter = Gateway to the North-gate days
For the m = market days are every five days and they are also the Sd = Season days in their time, in their Season; and their Medicine Hoop compass direction Gate abbreviations.
SERPENT = West Gate
DOG = North Gate
EAGLE = East Gate
SUN = South Gate
The red circles indicate the Mayan calendars' FIVE (5) major transition points, the start date points of the 52-day "rounds," or realms, or "Houses" of time some name them.
Each of the five cycle of 52-days may be associated with general Levels of Consciousness or awareness.
The red circles then alo indicate the FIVE (5) major key Levels of Consciousness 'shift points' for the major Levels of Consciousness: 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1,000/1.
Levels of Consciousness wers identified by the research of the-late DR. DAVID R. HAWKINS and presented in his clinically proven "Map of Consciousness" in his 1995 New York Times best selling book Power vs Force. Purchase Dr. Hawkins Map HERE.
Under the 20 day-signs are the horizontal 13-rows of 20 day each, which indicate the 13 Months of 20 days; the primary muscal tone; and the position of each 13-day week.
