Maya Spirit Companions

The Way/Nahaul

Both the ancient and highland Maya today believe they have a spirit/animal companion. The ancient Maya called it their Way (pronounced ‘Why’, and the plural is “Wayob“) and the Maya today call it their nahual/nawale.

Spirit-companions take many forms like an animal (e.g., reptile, bird, jaguar), elements of nature (e.g ., rain, lightning, wind, fire), or important objects to the Maya.
