MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Storm/CAUAC displays the unbridled Forces of Nature, free to flow with a natural course of energy, unconfined by any form or expectation. Storm shows us that this freedom is possible when we are nurtured within. Wherever we go we carry a Sanctuary of Safety in our Center that allows us this ecstasy of freedom.
Tone 11 is the day when the shaman climbs the mountain to the Holy Place to receive Higher Inspiration. We are called to reach for Higher Ground, to go above and beyond to live the fullness of our own life’s experience. Through our total engagement, we will recognize Spirit through our “lightning in the blood.” By Offering to be present with our feelings we enter into a Direct Communication from Spirit, and are given a way to experience the True Ecstasy of Freedom.
The Muluc trecena brings resolution to a new understanding through our emotions. Tone 11 calls us to make an adjustment necessary to manifest a new Truth. Cauac leads us to find our Comfort and Nourishment from our Sanctuary Within.
I think of myself as someone who’s not afraid to cry. I’ve found that tears are Holy Water that bring healing. When I Open my Heart to share my feelings As The Prayer, there is always some revelation of new understanding, whether it be a solution or just remembering we are Loved Exactly As We Are. Yet, there are other emotions I’m less comfortable to deal with – fear, restlessness, stress, anxiety, and depression. Yet, these feelings are equally important as the emotions I would escape Before they reach my Heart.
I was drawn to my path by my personal struggle with depression. I used to visualize that word always written in all capital letters. I remember feeling as if something was inherently wrong with me, too damaged by life’s disappointments to ever live life successfully under my own direction. I sought validation outside of myself for the confirmation that I was “okay.” Though I found healing through my Spiritual Path, these waves can return to wash over me.
Acknowledging our own Spiritual Authority can be a long and arduous process. We can never find our wholeness from value assessed by our outer world. Our High Holy Place of Truth, Healing and Divine Direction is found through a Direct Communion with Spirit. Our greatest accomplishments are the Substance of Spirit.
The painful parts of ourselves are only Shadows waiting to be Acknowledged. They Can be healed by our own Presence and Love. We raise ourselves to Higher Ground by volunteering to be there for ourselves through All our states of Being. When we become the Observer from the Sanctuary of our Sacred Center, we are separated from the judgements of our Shadow. As we are made capable to discern the True Voice of Spirit, we can be guided by our emotions instead of ruled by them.
The work of Tone 11 is an intention of resolution. Our “Way Through” is made by an Opening of the Heart. We can experience our own Ecstasy of Freedom when we seek our Comfort and Nourishment from our Sacred Center within.
To all my relations, may we have the courage to face the feelings we are most afraid of so we may recognize the Voice of Spirit calling to show the way to resolution. May we be raised to Higher Ground where we are present to bestir our “lightning in the blood” to speak. May we find our strength by returning to the Truth only found in our Sacred Center within.

THE TRECENA OF OFFERING/MULUC
11 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
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.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus. Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.
