MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“Serpent lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.”
8 Serpent/CHICCHAN is one of the Holy Days marked by special observance as the celebration of Spiritual Strength. The Serpent is a catalyst that fires our Supernatural Senses – our “lightning in the blood.”
The preceding trecena, led under this Day Sign, initiated an Awakening of Spirit. Serpent’s return on Tone 8, the Holy Day of the trecena, leads the purpose of Divine Justice. What we learned to do on our own, now receives the collaboration of a Divine Agency. The Intention we carried forward to discover our own Truth, is now aided and renewed by an Experience of Spirit.
This is a day when we would feel the Stirring of Spirit within our body. A new awakening of our Spiritual Gifts bestirs our blood to speak. Our sense of reason becomes secondary to an undeniable sense of Knowing. This inner stirring is related to the Kundalini energy. In the concept of Dharma, Kundalini (meaning “coiled one”) refers to a form of primal energy (or shakti) said to be located at the base of the spine that rises through the chakras of the Human Body. CHICCHAN represents the Life Force of our Spirit.
Divine Justice was made the Intention of the Creator’s most Holy Day. Serpent’s purpose on Tone 8 is to bring Justice through Harmony and Balance – supporting the principle of “As Above, So Below.” We are reminded that our Intentions of Spirit holds the Power to Effect the circumstances of our Earthy walk.
We accept the Truth of instinctual behavior in the animal world, though we can have more difficulty in recognizing these gifts within ourselves. Our Human challenge is the intellect that poses potential for our distraction. This is a gift we can only sense by paying attention. Though it may first be experienced as a subtle energy, as we acknowledge its presence and pay attention, its presence will be magnified.
The coincidences in our lives reveal our spiritual senses – times we picked up the phone just as a friend was about to call, or when we were guided away from a potential danger. Today we are gifted with the vision of our own Divine Nature. We were created so we may be guided by Spirit. This is the Peak Energy of this trecena that aligns a Divine Intention of God.
Serpent/CHICCHAN’s gift of seeing clearly has reminded me how I’ve looked outside myself to find the truth. In a time of such chaos where it’s hard to know what to believe, Chicchan would guide us to look within. If we took on the archetype of the Serpent, we would look to our own Senses for the Truth. We would respond from our Own Authority with fluidity and grace. This is not a time to look to guru’s, teachers, or pundits to find answers that Spirit has seated within. Teachers are only Intermediaries that help us to make a connection. The Truth that we are capable to live by, must be uniquely our own. We have to Know our Own Truth… and acknowledge it as our Authority that makes possible a Personal Gift of Divine Justice.
Our differences are important. We are stronger when we are not all on the same page, because here we have something new to bring to the whole. If we look outside ourselves, we risk all repeating the same story from a primary source we would likely never know.
To all my relations, may we light the candles on our sacred altars to honor the gift of Divine Spirit. May we accept our own Divinity as the greatest of all God’s gifts, empowering the most important purpose for our creation. May we be opened to receive an understanding that isn’t conveyed by words, but as Truth that is imparted through a gift of a Living Force of Spirit.
in lak’ech, I am another you
