MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
11 Storm/CAUAC operates as a Tone of Resolution, positioned in the 11th uinal that offers a Higher intention of Clarity. This is another important day of Awakening and Enlightenment. Storm/CAUAC brings the energy of the Comfort of Home.
Storm/CAUAC displays the unbridled Forces of Nature. Lightning finds its own course, unrestricted by any form or expectation. This is a freedom we can realize when we exist in a place of sanctuary. When trouble takes us off-guard, we always have a place to go.
Storm is the Day Sign of lightening and thunder that offers renewal and regeneration. Lightning brings the gift of Nitrogen that will nourish us in the Transformation to a Higher Consciousness. The Cherokee Day Sign Redbird, is a symbol of “lightning in the blood.” The regeneration of CAUAC bestirs our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. Through our Sense of Intuition we’re offered an opportunity to realize a Source of Unbridled Power within.
Storm/CAUAC inspires us to run for cover. The universe within is the Home of our Higher Self.
Mother Nature has such a beautiful way of telling a story. This morning a pair of song sparrows made a visit to the balcony. The larger of the two cried to be fed, as the other went back and forth to the suet block to feed it. At first I thought it was a mating ritual, due to the larger size of the bird being fed. Though in its posture I recognized it was an overgrown baby. After a few minutes of this back and forth, the Mother took off. The “big baby” seemed bewildered for a moment, but after some hesitation and inspection of the food dropped by his feet, it tentatively started to feed itself. I felt like I had a front-row seat to watch a hand-off of personal power.
Our Higher Self is a substance of Ether, a Spark of the Creator that is nourished by a Divine Power Source. As long as we see our “salvation” as something outside of ourselves, we overlook our own capabilities. We are children of the Creator, given our own Spark of the Divine. When we realize our own Power, we can exist in total freedom. When our Ego presents the fear of powerlessness, a Divine Source is always willing to step in when we call.
It touches my heart to see this compassionate care in such a tiny Source of Consciousness, and a Divine Blessing that they visited here for observation. On a Journey as One, we are fed by a Divine Spirit even when we are capable to stand on our own. Nothing is held back because we could do it for our Self. A Divine Creator is always willing and present to give us what we need.
Today we receive a Divine Nourishment and a Gift of Personal Power. Through a blessing of “lightning in the blood” we are capable to realize a Power Within. We can Sense our freedom to live, knowing we’re never denied what we can’t see to do for our Self.
Tone 11 is the day when the shaman climbs to the Highest Altar to seek the inspiration of Higher Ground. Through our “lightning in the blood” we can Know the ecstasy of freedom. By offering All of our Self, we are under the constant care of a Divine Spirit. Our Higher Self always Knows this, and can share this Source of Nourishment with the Ego.
The Higher Self is defined as the “real you,” your total soul consciousness. The Lower Self is the you that is living here on Earth as an expression of the consciousness of your Higher Self. Our Higher Self is the part of us that experiences the Atonement of an Offering. Our Lower Self is influenced by the outer experiences of the world. With the gift of “lightning in the blood” we can recognize the difference between the two. Our Higher Self is the Unseen Watcher who discerns the way our Lower Self is processing the experiences of living. Our Higher Self is the Master of our own Universe.
In the Mystery Schools of Secret Wisdom, the hermetic principles reveal that our Higher Self is the Source of Highest Authority. As above, so below. The Higher Self holds the power of influence over our lower energies. What the Lower Self feels it is incapable to accomplish, can be carried out in Spirit by the Higher Self.
We could compare the operations of our Lower and Higher Self. When our Lower Self attempts to carry out an Intention, it operates from a structure of imagined rules and regulations. If we were attempting to improve our diet, our Lower Self would set about creating the menu and discerning our list of “to do’s.” We might know from personal experience, that our Lower Self doesn’t necessarily follow the rules. Though we know exactly what to do, the real issue is getting ourselves to do it.
When we surrender to our Higher Self, we can engage a Higher Power of Influence. Without any effort we could find ourselves doing what needs to be done. We wouldn’t need a menu for something we would become naturally inclined to do. Having Faith in our Higher Self to make it so is something we accomplish over time through . Through a gift of “lightning in the blood” we are empowered to discern the Consciousness of our Higher Self. Imagine how easy life would be, if we learned to engage this Power for everything we need.
Acknowledging our own Spiritual Authority is a lifelong process. We can never find our wholeness in the outer world. Our High Holy Place of Truth, Healing and Divine Direction is present through the Atonement of our Higher Self. As we are made capable to discern Higher Self, we can be guided by our emotions instead of being ruled by them.
The MULUC trecena offers a Way to Experience our Higher Self through an Opening of the Heart. Through an Offering of our Self in our Holy Place of Sanctuary, we can Know and Sense our Personal Power. MULUC leads us to see that through and Offering we raise ourselves up from the whole to See how we are Seen by the Creator. Our True Identity is a Personification of Light, a Reflection of a Creator, Creating Creation. When we recognize the Truth of the Consciousness of our Higher Self, we tap in to our own Source of Unlimited Power.
To all my relations, may we invest ourselves in an effort of discerning our Higher Self. May we see with new Clarity the Divine Being of Consciousness that is Who We Really Are. May we see in our Self the Unlimited Power of a Master that holds a Direct Connection to the Creator. Our Higher Self can complete what we Feel Incapable of doing on our own. May we recognize the “feeling that we are somehow lacking” as cry of the Ego that needs to be nourished and fed. May we know we are given everything we need by a Loving Creator, even in our capability of doing it for ourselves. By surrendering our Will to the Creator, our Higher Self can work with Divine Power of Atonement. When we hear the Voice of our Ego, may we call on our Higher Self for a Divine Discernment.

The Song Sparrows Return – The pair returns as I finish this post. The baby is still crying and now the Mother is using another approach. It stands side-by-side eating seeds in front of the baby. Then, it goes back and forth to the suet block, as if it’s showing the way to another source of food. Like CAUAC, it gives what is needed, while demonstrating the Power to do it for our Self.

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.
