MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S BLOG
Star/LAMAT leads our Vision Quest to a Higher Realization of Who We Are, Who We Are Becoming, and Who We Can Be. Every Quest begins with a Vision of its Meaning and Purpose. On Tone 1, we were opened to a Divine Inspiration, a Vision, or a Dream as the purpose worthy to lead us on a Quest.
Many of our best-loved stories are centered on this theme. They begin by revealing a Challenge that is greater than the One that takes it on. The Passion of the would-be Hero is ignited by a Higher Purpose to make the resolution of this challenge their Sole Intention. Their next step is an assessment of their own Resource – through Reason, they consider what they have to bring and how they might be able to carry it out.
On Tone 2 we are given the inclination for comparisons and assessments. Our Quest hangs in the balance of a choice we make to move forward. We consider the ways our mission could succeed or fail, and the ways we are either more or less up to the challenge than someone else. Tone 2 is a day of self-reflection. We see how we are different. We can feel alone and can sense the weight of what we could carry on our own shoulders. We see the need for Divine Agency and long to be re-joined.
Offering/MULUC offers us a Way of Atonement. We are returned to Unity with the Creator through a Sacred Surrender. We offer ourselves just as we are, the “I Am” that we now see ourselves to be. We offer a commitment to bring Everything we Can to serve a Higher Purpose, relying on the balance through the Grace of Divine Correspondence.
2 Offering/MULUC presents a stirring, calling, or desire to enter into a Sacred Exchange. When we are Divinely Drawn to make an offering, our intention is more important than a particular way or tradition. Our Sacred Offering is a personal exchange, a one-on-one Communion with Divine Spirit.
Common to every Spiritual tradition is the intention of Offering the first and best of what we can bring. In the tradition of a Sacred Feast that concludes Sacred Ceremonies of fasting and prayer, the first plate is offered to Spirit. Religious doctrine required the sacrificial offering to be the unblemished and the best. However we might carry it out, we are called to offer the Best of Ourselves as a Living Sacrifice.
Our Faith in Divine Agency is born when we offer the Best We can Bring. Our Faith is anchored in knowing we invested our Highest Effort. Tone 2 calls us to consider our own Personal Best.
Offering/MULUC is a Day Sign of Water everywhere. Water is the substance capable to hold the Ether of Spirit. We are each One in the same body of water that has existed on Earth since its creation. We are raised up for a lifetime as a body made primarily of water. In the end we are returned to the Earth to become part of the falling rain, the morning dew, and the Rivers that flow to the ocean. In the water of our own tears, we are One.
The Maya use water as an offering for baptism and purification to bring about a collective strength, correspondence and harmony of the Whole. As a symbol of our emotions, MULUC leads us to honor our feelings and the feelings of others. Offering/MULUC is a day for restoring harmony to the collective by paying back and paying forward.
To all my relations, on our Quest to a Realization of everything we could hope To Be, may we consider what we have to offer through our own effort. Only we can know the personal sacrifice that would satisfy Our Expectations of Ourselves. May our Offering be given with the Higher Intention to be a Blessing to the All.

THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT
2 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
