This symbol is called the Galactic Butterfly which is said to represent all of the consciousness that has ever existed in this galaxy. This is all of our physical ancestors both human, animal, reptile, fish, shell fish, plants as well as the consciousness which organized all of the raw material from a whirling disk into stars then planets and solar systems. Big Meaning. So big that the original Maya had no symbol for this. In their civilization it was like having no name for God. Just knowing the concept was good enough. Later this pattern was devised by Toltec or Zapatec weavers as a pattern for blankets and this is where Jose Arguelles came across it. He called it Hunab Ku. The indigenous peoples call it "The Galactic Butterfly". Butterflies are seen as ancestors returning for a visit to physicality. Wearing one of these symbols is very powerful as it broadcasts your reaching to actively join the consciousness of our galaxy.

Prayer of The 7 Galactic Directions

From the East, House of Light,
may wisdom dawn in us
so we may see all things in clarity.
From the North, House of Night,
may wisdom ripen in us
so we may know all from within.
From the West, House of Transformation,
may wisdom be transformed into right action,
so we may do what must be done.
From the South, House of the Eternal Sun,
may right action reap the harvest
so we may enjoy the fruits of planetary being.
From Above, House of Heaven,
may star people and ancestors be with us now.
From Below, House of Earth,
may the heartbeat of her crystal core
bless us with harmonies to end all war.
From the Center, Galactic Source,
which is everywhere at once,
may everything be known as the light of mutual love.

*Ah Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!
Ah Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!
Ah Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!

*this means "O Hunab Ku, One Giver of Movement and Measure,
All hail the harmony of mind and nature!"
This phrase combines Mayan and Tibetan language.
