The Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel

Category is Mayan magic, Meso-American magic.

Reading this book for fun, the figure on the left began to pulse like sigils do. This lil guy began to speak.

It reminded me of a bit of melted candle, that I clumsily broke wax figure’s headpiece.

So, I will experiment with this book and see where it takes me.


Chapter 1 - The Ritual of the Four-Quarters

Here, I want to recognize the goetic Amon. He is teaching me to weave and worm my way though grimoires. I suggest that this book is, and should be treated as a grimoire.

Now, let’s look at the following with the Dragon’s Sight, my stylization of the Qlippothic NightSight. Right, we have the eyes to see and the ears to hear.

Herein we have names of the Mayan Watchtowers, the Guardian-Keeper of the Direction. The formula is used frequently in magick and ought be known. Note the directions is facing East, North, West, South. Displayed so,

Currently I’m working with the above image. I’ve had this book for less than a day, so all this needs time.



This image just radiates Bornless Ritual energy.

Oh hey, I found the one who’s been designing all those Lucifuge Rofocal sigils.

I keep turning to this page. My spidey senses tell me Venus will be super duper important and interconnected with this work. :smiley:

Oh hey, untested pathworking image to the Jaguar Animal-Spirit! :smirk_cat:


The “Four World Quarters” is interesting. Reminds me a bit of Yezidism, or some parts of it that were never explained/expanded on. Please do report back.

Also anything you can tell us (me) about Kukulkan (Quetzalcoatl) is big appreciation :smiley:

Otherwise, following just for the sake of new knowledge :purple_heart:


Dude that’s an amazing insight and I completely agree with you!

The Mystery of Balam

I believe understanding this next portion is tremendously helpful in making a more meaningful connection with this grimoire.

Think of the manifold nature of Ba’al. We know that Ba’al is a title, a god, physical locations, and some of it makes an appearance in the Goetia. Despite these manifold expressions, there are several, like cornerstones. A cornerstone of Ba’al is: the fatherly expression of to protect. Another cornerstone is captured marvelously in the Lesser Headless Invocation: I am the One whose sweat falleth upon the earth as rain that it might be inseminated

I put forth the suggestion that Balam be elevated and held in a similar regard. Fact of the matter is the Canaanite and Canaanite adjacent pantheons are far more popular compared to Mayan Pantheons. That is partly why Balam is not as remembered in our time. Compared to Ba’al.

Disrobing the Past, Unveiling Balam, South American Spice

I’ve spent >30 minutes re-writing this next bit. I have elected to brain dump, and edit this later.

As Ba’al means fertility and Father, so too does Balam mean this: {Oh hey! This is Peh #17, Mouth of the Dragon. Tunnel 17}

Balam means Seer and Motion.

Mayan magick-y images, you add the quality of motion and depth to them. It’s not a picture of a god. It’s a suit of armor you can put on, or invoke yourself into. cool stuff !


sent messengers to summon Balaam son of Beor, who was at Pethor, near the Euphrates River, in his native land Numbers 22:5, the bible.

Balaam as-a-person is the Seer. He is the go to guide. In Bible-y terms, the heathen and holy seek the consel of Balaam. Viewing the Bible as a grimoire (and not something to argue about) this passage begins to betray it’s nature. That of a pathworking set of images.

This grimoire of meso-american magic instead focus on Balam (note the dropped “a”) as-location. The Four World Quarters betrays a parallel to the very well known Summoning of the Watchtowers motif. Ex: in the LBRP you summon the four dudes who represent the four Directions. That bit.

In the direction of the North, we have the Third Name of the North. balam-na

Currently I’m taking my time digesting that above bit. If we use the above as an outline, we focus on every third name from the four directions.

Ox Pauah Ek as the East
Balam-na as the North
Ah Tucuch as the West
Cauich as the South
