7 Storm / CAUAC – Building an Altar Within: Day 7 of 13


7 Storm / CAUAC

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 7 we’ve completed our climb of spiritual growth. A Tone of Reflection helps us establish future goals by seeing things as they really are. Tone 7 reflects all that is, and all that is not. All that is accomplished in Spirit will be reconciled through a Balance between the Above and the Below.

Storm/CAUAC symbolizes the Lightning that connects Heaven and Earth. Lightning is a Spectacle of the Power from Heaven that Blesses the Earth with with nitrogen to bring New Life. CAUAC offers the gift of Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit.

Tone 7 is a Holy Place at the top of the pyramid. We make an Offering of our Dream, reflecting on all we Hoped for and what we actually accomplished. We are measured for a Transformation that will complete what is needed by Divine Intervention.

The lightning of the storm is an unbridled Source of Power. Lightning knows no boundaries and can reach us wherever we are. CAUAC sends a Spark that recharges our “spiritual battery.”

The number 7 is associated with a Spiritual Awakening. 7 empowers mysticism, intuition and psychic abilities. The Cherokee Redbird is a totem of this lightning energy. It’s appearance was a sign of lightning in the sky. 7 Storm/CAUAC restores Faith and Hope in our Dream through a Peak Experience of Spirit and our Sixth Sense of Knowing.

6 Flint / ETZNAB – Building an Altar Within: Day 6 of 13


6 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 6 we move into the Peak Energies of this 13-day cycle. The effort we’ve made in holding an Intention of Spirit takes on the momentum of Flow, as a rhythm and pattern of movement.

Flint/ETZNAB is the Stellar Ray that brings Light to things that have been concealed or hidden. This is a day of Truth that cuts to the heart of a matter.

6 Flint/ETZNAB generates a Flow of Movement that shines a Light of Truth. “Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away.”

6 Flint/ETZNAB, Kin 58,
is a Portal Day that presents a thinning of the veil. Flint’s Truth may be Revealed as a sudden sense of Intuition or Knowing. Today we will face a new Truth about our Self. Made crystal clear, the Truth brought to Light will change the way we see ourselves and others.

Flint/ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, presenting a perfect reflection of Reality, separating facts from fiction. As a Day Sign said to present temptation, we should expect the unexpected from our Self and Others. When we act out-of-character we See the Truth we tried to hide from our Self.

We were Initiated by our Ascension from the Sun/AHAU trecena to take on a role of leadership in the Spiritual Authority as the priest, way shower, and shaman. Truth will always shine the Light on the next Right thing to do.

Flint/ETZNAB can bring a sudden light to the “differences” we try to cover up in an effort to be like everyone else. We are each meant to find our own way that is Perfect and Divine. When we strive to be something other than who we are, we diminish our own Light.

Joseph Rael, “Beautiful Painted Arrow,” is a visionary, shaman, and teacher that offered a Truth that cleared the way for my own Spiritual Path. I knew my path was different than the way I was raised to believe. I was afraid to choose it, fearing the loss of my own salvation. Joseph’s message about his own Truth was, “Don’t strive to emulate me, but create your own Spiritual Myths.” He helped me believe that my own way of having a relationship with God was worthy, and the most important Truth for me. I didn’t throw away the faith I once knew. I found a way to make it my own.

Flint/ETZNAB completes the Intention of Flow by being impeccable in our Truth. We harness our momentum by walking the talk. This is the way to avoid setbacks, misunderstandings, and gossip.  As a Divine Authority of Humility, we share our strength in the Light of our Own Weakness. Others deserve to know our Truth, so that they have all the facts to discern their own best way forward to happiness. Truth is a Sacred Exchange when it’s Offered with Unconditional Love. Truth is Light when it’s out in the open, and darkness when it hides in the shadows. Only when we share our Truth can we experience being Loved for who we are.

Flint presents the potential for sudden and unexpected developments. This is a day to think before we act or speak. Flint intends to get the point across one way or another. We can learn the hard way through the consequences of our uncontrolled impulses, or we can learn the easy way by opening eyes to the consciousness of our own thoughts. Whatever deception is lurking in the shadows Will now be brought to light.

Though “caution” is our guidance, Flint’s underlying purpose is to clear a new path forward. Flint reveals Truth to sweep our slates clean of patterns of thought or behavior that hold us back. Flint always presents something memorable that can reveal why we do the things we do.

To Know Flint’s Peak Energy and Power, we can open our eyes to the Truth. Flint is a powerful energy. At peak performance, we might expect Flint to bring some significant Truth to Light. Flint can help us get in touch with our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. We already know Flint’s Truth. We just preferred not to see it. We will know the Truth when we hear it, we won’t question it as Truth. Remember what this Truth feels like, and you’ll see the proof of your own Spiritual Gifts.

The Truth is seeded in our Heart. When we hear Truth, we’re likely to think, “I knew that all along.” Truth resolves something we knew, but didn’t have the proof to believe in. Today we can learn to believe in our own Truth.

Truth is our Divine Guidance system. Every Spiritual Gift is given to know the Truth. Intuition, Clairvoyance, Telepathy, and Premonition are all Truth bearing gifts. The Truth is important. It presents the clear path forward. Avoiding hard Truths, we cloud our own perception. We put off what our Spirit tells us to do.

Flint can also free us with Truth of our own Power. Sometimes what is hidden is our own lack of faith in our Self. Flint can clear our self-doubt and the illusion of powerlessness. Whatever Truth Flint brings will be a blessing that Heals the Heart. Truth will help us complete our new climb of Spiritual Growth.

When we know the Truth, nothing stands in the way of fully investing our Self in a direction we already Knew we must take. Truth clears the path to move forward at Peak Performance.

To all my relations, may our eyes be opened for a new Truth. May we continue to move forward, accepting that old Truths we’ve claimed are subject to change. May we see that our Transformation to Higher Consciousness requires the courage to look within, and the flexibility to Change our Mind. May we draw upon the Presence of Spirit to help us accept the Truth of a new Understanding. May we encourage others to see the Truth of their own Light, and the Grace of Unconditional Love that accepts us exactly as we Are.

A GIFT OF DISCERNMENT: Flint is a good day to get in touch with our Sense of Spiritual Energy. Flint days are often more intense or stressful, which can build throughout the day. At sunset, the energy shifts to CAUAC, a sign of comfort. If you pay attention, you might feel a shift from energies of “stress” to “comfort” with the approach of sunset. (Flint is the psychic surgery. Storm/CAUAC is the recovery room.)

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.

21-Days of Gratitude: Day 5

I’m grateful for the Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. I’m grateful that they grow, every time we acknowledge them.

6 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)

Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.

Flint/ETZNAB: Mirror of reality. As a struck flint, these persons are the divine sparks of intelligence. Flint’s innate abilities are utilized to discriminate emotions from fact. Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away. Flints, it was said, can receive information on inter-personal troubles or evil plots of others by reflecting in an obsidian mirror. Their valiant service as warriors of the truth must be impeccable or they will experience sufferings of accidents, misunderstandings and gossip.

Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA: Mirror, flint.  Ability to discern deception and mirror it back to the other.  A catalyst for change through this ability.  When used properly, harmonic resonance can be the result.  If you take on anothers issues through the mirror, the result will be anger, grief and misunderstanding of purpose.  All issues will surface and be mirrored in this earth walk.  Energy comparable for teaching, leader, philosopher, writer, observing the mass consciousness evolution in some manner.

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!


5 Earth / CABAN – Building an Altar Within: Day 5 of 13


Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 is a day of Empowerment. Five represents the center of the cube as the internal Force of intelligence, which organizes and manages materials and knowledge for application. 5 draws together the resources that are needed to empower a climb of Spiritual Growth.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth and Movement. Mother Earth is the source of all wisdom and knowledge, and represents every resource Human would ever need to live our lives in a good way. Down to the finest details, Earth is a living illustration of the Creator’s Intention of Beauty and Abundance. Her way of Movement maintains the balance of Light and Dark. Through movement She creates Time and allows Human to mark the seasons and to navigate by the stars. Through Mother Earth, we can draw Knowledge of our Self and whole of the Universe.

The Cherokee and Aztec signs, the Heron and the Ollin are symbols of Movement. The Heron lives its life in the perpetual movement of migration. The Ollin simply means “Movement” and is the symbol that resides in the center of the familiar Aztec stone calendar, marking 20 stations of movement. Collectively, they reflect the Power of an object in motion. The Aztec Ollin guides the intention of purposeful movement, defining this as an auspicious day for the “active principle” and an unfortunate day for the “passive principle.” The Aztec refer to Ollin as the “day of the purified heart,” when we draw the Consciousness of what we are becoming. The Heron is likened to the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes to live again as a new creation. So are we rising again, transformed as something new.

4 Wisdom / CIB – Building an Altar Within: Day 4 of 13


4 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 offers the energy of Stability. Like the cube, the most stable of geometric forms, is harmonized by equality in all its dimensions. The Reed/BEN trecena raises our awareness of Stability as an Intention we can accomplish by drawing the Creator’s Light into every direction that influences our lives.

We can raise our perception of Divine Inspiration (East), the Blessing of our Relationships (South), the Mysteries of our Life (West), and the Gift of Consciousness to draw Wisdom from every experience. The Light of our Life would be dimmed, if even one of these influences were missing from our experience. By Human reason we could discern how our Happiness is stabilized by the Consciousness of the Blessings from every direction.

We are stabilized on Tone 4 by Widsom/CIB. The Reed/BEN trecena guides us to establish our stability by drawing upon the Wisdom of Humanity.

Wisdom/CIB is the Day Sign that represents our Highest State of Consciousness. It Honors the Collective Wisdom of Humanity. As a Day Sign of the South, it represents our Relationship to the Ascended Masters, and the Grandfathers and Grandmothers who walked the Path of Beauty. We are bound together in Relationship by our shared experience of Life… bound by our common struggles and the common Joy of being transformed to rise above them.

3 Eagle / MEN – Building an Altar Within: Day 3 of 13


3 Eagle / MEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement that brings Life to a Dream in the world of physicality. Through an act of Intention, we give birth to a new vibration. Through movement or communication, a vibration moves atoms and particles that begin a chain reaction. The change that is created is influenced by the Tone and Frequency of the Vibration.

This is Earth’s illustration of Spiritual Truth. When we invest ourselves, our Will and Consciousness, in an Intention to manifest a creation, we emanate waves of Spiritual Energy. Like the Deer, we hold the Power of Harmonic Resonance… a vibration of Love, able to influence lower vibrations.

Our Intentions facilitate the Movement in the realm of Spirit. When we Offer our Dream into the Hands of the Creator, we pay forward a Gift of Divine Justice. We give our permission for Divine Intervention, so that Divine Spirit is Free to Move.

Eagle/MEN is an Intermediary of Spirit. Eagle can lift us up for a heavenly view. We are able to see something for our Self that we were unable to see from Below. From Above there are no obstacles in our way, only the direct route from Point A to Point B.

Eagle’s are said to be successful when they use their talent for seeing into the future. Capable to see its next meal from a mile away, the Eagle doesn’t calculate the speed or distance, it only imagines the prize within its grasp.

Eagle/MEN is a Day Sign of the West, the direction of our Unknown Experiences. The West is a place of transformation from the Wisdom of new experience. Eagle represents the Element of Water and our Emotions, touching our Hopes and Fears. Eagle/MEN encourages us to Move with Intention toward our Highest Hopes and Aspirations.

2 Jaguar / IX – Building an Altar Within: Day 2 of 13


2 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 represents Duality. Human’s way of seeing things is through a comparison of one thing and another. By design, our physical form is symmetrical. There are also two sides of our identity, as physical being, and a being of Spirit. On Tone 1 we existed in Unity with the Creator. On Tone 2 we see ourselves separated by the consciousness that we are also something else, a Consciousness that is solely our own.

On Tone 2 we see how we are different. We were all given the same Inspiration to see one another as part of the Whole of Humanity, born of the Creator. The Reed/BEN trecena holds an intention to reconcile the two sides of our Self with the Whole. We are inspired to find our way to be One in the Light of our Oneness as part of the family.

Jaguar/IX is recognized as the most Spiritual of the Day Signs. Jaguar is the way-shower, shaman, and shape-shifter that is capable to shift its identity from one realm of being to another. The Jaguar guides us to shift into the Identity of our Divine Spirit. The Jaguar leaves its footprints for us to follow to the dimension of Spirit.

Tone 2 is the day we consider our own Sacred Intention for a new cycle of transformation. We decide how we would invest our self in a new effort of Spiritual Growth that would manifest a Higher Consciousness of our Oneness with Humanity. Jaguar/IX guides us to a Dream for Creation that is defined by our Spirit.  Our Spirit holds the Wisdom of Oneness and remembers the Truth.

1 Reed / BEN – Building an Altar Within: Day 1 of 13


1 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13-Days…

We ascended the trecena of Sun/AHAU, made Conscious of Human’s Divine Destiny. As an Offering of Love to the Whole, we found we were worthy to serve as a Divine Agent of the Creator’s Love. We established the understanding of our Highest Meaning and Purpose. A journey we made in the Light of the Creator, offered us the way.

Reed/BEN is a Day Sign of Family and Home, the Center where the children of the Creator would grow. The glyph illustrates an altar. Above are the channels of Light that reach down to Human. Below are the prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility.

In our mission to fulfill a Witness of Light, the next important step is to establish an open channel of communication with the Creator. We were initiated as the Mayan priest by the Sun/AHAU trecena. Our first assignment is to build an altar.

The Reed/BEN trecena is a cycle of new “Light.” Reed will inspire us to create this Center of Light around which the family of the Creator would be gathered in Peace and Harmony.

3rd & 4th Uinals: In the harvest cycle of the Tzolk’in round, the 3rd and 4th Uinals represents the process of the Seed that becomes a sprout. Like Tones 3 and 4, the 3rd and 4th Uinals are cycles Movement and Stability. As we reach up to draw the Light of Divinity, so will our roots reach down to be anchored by an Intention of Forgiveness.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
The Reed/BEN trecena includes 2 Portal Days that thin the veil to other dimensions and empower our psychic gifts of intuition and telepathy. A Portal on 6 Flint/ETZNAB will magnify an important Truth that has been hidden or covered up. On 12 Seed/KAN a Portal will magnify our Understanding of Family through a new Wisdom of our Self.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Flint/ETZNAB – establishes a habit of turning to the Creator for the discernment of Truth.
  • 7  Storm/CAUAC – will balance the Above and Below to nourish and regenerate our Spirit.
  • 8 Sun/AHAU – will transform us through a revelation of Divine Justice.
  • 9 Crocodile/IMIX – we will Know the Voice of the Creator that leads us to our dream.

Reed/BEN will guide us to an Ascension on 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN. By Divine Intervention we will be touched by the Lightning of Spirit that bestirs our blood to speak.
