K’at is the web, the knots, complications and challenges in our life
generated because of our ignorance. Sometimes, out of being avaricious to wish
to have more than others, to wish to have it all, at the least expected, we
realise that we are slaves and we get trapped by ourselves. But why ?
our culture, we want to be the owners of all. Here on this Earth, we are pilgrims
just wandering ; the Earth does not belong to anyone and belongs to all at the
same time ; our Mother the Earth is the harmonious companion of our Father the
Universe and together they fusioned, created and gave birth to life that they
raise together here.
K'at is a very sacred and divine day. This day is used
to undo all the knots of life, to overcome all the issues and challenges on
our way, to solve problems and failures and to heal illnesses as well, to keep
away poverty, craziness and all sorts of problems caused by misunderstanding.

It symbolizes the energy, the strength
and the warmth in our hearts, from our first parents and this is what made their
words transcend, their prayers and invocations for the world to be formed with
beauty and harmony. It is the day to pay to our ancestors. As well it symbolizes
the problems which ourselves we generate or that our destiny puts on our way
for our apprenticeship, growth and right evolution.

fecundity, tenderness, renewal, generic principle and wisdom. K'at is an appropriate
day to solve a complicated matter, to make friends, to form the union in a group,
a society and to ask for the unity in the whole community.
It is as well the web, the knots and the problems which stuck us.
It is the web which serves to catch the fishes and to keep the corn, symbol of abundance.
K'at is as well this web which allows remembering, storing in our brain and mind, all that has
been and is learnt.
The divine and sacred fire is a crucial part in the celebration of the ceremony ;
it is the element that elevates our prayers to the Heart of the Sky, Heart
of the Earth, which is like the web that unifies and helps get liberated from
oppression, harm and evil between people.
On the day K'at, we ask for the physical
and mental well development of children ; also we ask for the unity of the community,
for the fecundity of women, for the withdrawal of the harming and evil energies,
for the undoing of the knots which attach us to vices, for solving emotional

a negative incidence on them because it gives them a tendency to
get trapped into problems.

from the problems in which they get involved ; the Tijax cuts the
web. It can cut, heal illnesses.

It is essential to remember that we can't impose to others as everybody
learns by themselves.

the best in their life. Travelling and love relationships abroad.
