MYTHS SERIES || Nahual.

The word “Nahual” means “moment of radiance.”

It is the essence or the spirit of a person, animal, or thing, living or dead. This spirit is believed to function as the protector of a person, animal, or plant. It is believed that human beings have an animal spirit counterpart, received at birth, which protects them as they walk through life. The Nahual is thought to help individuals in difficult moments when they need protection or must decide what to do, where to go, and for what ends. The Nahual can use its power for good or evil, depending on its personality. No one can capture the Nahual; it escapes when it wants to and transforms into something else. During any rite of passage in life, one’s Nahual will be present.

Chicomoztoc, “the place of the seven caves”

An Illustration from the Historia Tolteca Chichimeca, A post-Cortesian codex from 1550 written by the people of Cuauhtinchan to sustain their right to their lands under the Spanish Colonial authorities. They wrote their history from A.D. 116 through 1544 using a mixture of European and prehispanic styles.  

from Wikipedia

Nahuatl legends relate that six tribes lived in Chicomoztoc, or “the place of the seven caves”. Each cave represented a different Nahua group: the Xochimilca, Tlahuica, Acolhua, Tlaxcalan, Tepaneca, Chalca, and Mexica. Because of a common linguistic origin, those groups also are called “Nahuatlaca” (Nahua people). These tribes subsequently left the caves and settled “near” Aztlán, or Aztatlan.
