MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 11 asks us to see how we will integrate change in our lives. Some modifications are required as we see where we fit into the grander scheme of things.
Sun/AHAU manifested our enlightenment by shining its light on all things. Our “higher consciousness” also makes us aware of life’s shadows. This is a time to cast off bad ideas as they are presented to us and to hold onto the Light. This requires us to pay attention to our thoughts.
Under the Day Sign of Crocodile/IMIX we are held in the arms of our primordial mother, who prepares us for our way in the world.
THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
11 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee, Turtle/ DAK’SI)
Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.
Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.
Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg, to the Maya, the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth.
Crystallization of Spirit Day 11
As we contemplate the solution to our worldly problems our attention is easily drawn to everything outside of ourselves. Trying to change feelings and beliefs only divides us and is not the answer to world peace. Besides, the changes we would coerce are only authentic when they are made by free will. Who is authorized to say what the rest of us should be?
Each one of us holds a share in the collective darkness. It expresses itself when we choose to make judgements. Crocodile/IMIX reminds us that when we were created there was no dark or light.
IMIX is an initiator of new beginnings. Held in the arms of the mother we are guided to see how we might best make our way in the world. We each have a special gift and are meant to shine our own Light, and together we can light up the world.
To all my relations, as Warriors of Light may we cast out the darkness that would challenge our own hearts, so we may shine as perfect reflections of God.
