MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On 13 Crocodile/IMIX we ascend from the trecena of Offering/MULUC. This a day to mark the milestone of our new Higher Ground. MULUC guided a revelation of Truth that we never walk alone and Divine Agency only waits for a Surrender from the Heart.
MULUC focused on the right use of our Emotions as the Language that perfectly articulates what we need to say. When we ask for healing through our Emotions, we surrender the Way of our Healing. Our Ego thinks it has everything figured out – how things should be for everything to be okay. Yet, we’ve learned that the Ego is unable to see beyond the “flashing red light” it discerns is the problem. It takes our Divine Discernment to resolve the Real Truth.
Crocodile/IMIX is the beginning of all things, and 13 is the number of theurgy… our ability to draw Divine Intervention to our Human affairs through Sacred Rituals. These are times when we Choose to be Conscious of the Divine. In reciprocity, Divine Agency is drawn to our Consciousness. We raise ourselves up to be Seen by the Creator. We are able to See Our Self from a Divine Perspective.
12 Sun/AHAU shed a light on our Feelings. We could see that our “war with the ego” can be resolved by a “full surrender.” Our darker thoughts don’t have to be killed off to exist in Peace and Harmony, once we recognize them as merely a warning system and not necessarily the Truth. Our Higher Self is the Master who can Acknowledge and Love the Ego for it’s Intended Purpose and make the Divine Discernment.
13 Crocodile/IMIX (Kin 221) is the beginning of the 12th uinal that holds the Intention of Divine Understanding. The 11th uinal provided clarity of all our “clues” of understanding. Under the 12th uinal, all the facts are seen together that would elevate us to a new level of Consciousness.
Energies continue to build toward the end of the Tzolk’in round. This is an important time of self-care. We are 4 days away from a Global Burner in the next trecena. These are days the Maya observe with Sacred Fire Ceremony for the purpose of restoring Harmony to the Community. Burner days accomplish a burn-off of residual energy that builds up through each season of the Tzolk’in. This build-up could account for some intense feelings now.
We could expect a Divine Understanding to unfold over the next 20 days, and a greater sense of stability on 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN, the Global Burner in the trecena of Wind/IK.
We might also think of the evolutionary process that happens with the higher numbered tones and uinals. This is the “reproductive cycle.” The 11th uinal was our place of Blossoming. In the 12th uinal we are beginning to bear fruit that holds the seeds of the next harvest. These are processes that demand a lot of personal energy. Just as we’ve been given new Power to Master our Emotions, we enter a process that demands all the Power we’ve got. (It could feel like getting unexpected money, and then realizing it all has to go to an extraordinary expense.) Remember, the Truth of an important New Understanding WILL be made clear, and we Still have something to Celebrate.
My own Truth that sunk in during this trecena was about the Power in Offering my Authentic Emotions to the Creator. I was unable to see a solution that was right in front of me, because my Lower Self discerned an impossibility. My car was running on prayers, because the only answer I could see was that it just had to keep going. I never considered a car as an Intention for Manifestation. What I prayed about was my fear of driving.
The MULUC trecena offered a deeper Sense that Miracles Happen when we pray for the Release of our Fear, instead of Our Way to Solve it. In the same way, we can share our sorrow in the need of Happiness and Love, in total surrender to the Way of fulfillment. The car had to die for a new one to be born because I didn’t even fathom a possibility. The Divine Intervention was a breakdown that led to a breakthrough. The MULUC trecena led a journey through the extremes of experience, though even the hard days were okay, seeing that circumstances didn’t have to grip me with fear. I always knew the next step, and in spite of my feelings, I was given the courage to take it.
It’s funny when I look at my “latest revelations” and realize I’ve had them before. I wonder what makes this time different. Human is the “bearer of time.” We have to experience something again and again to be transformed to a Consciousness high enough to walk in the authenticity of our Higher Self. The Tzolk’in reflects cycles within cycles, no day ever the same, as we experience things we already Know in a different way.
I have a new perspective on the “crying baby” as a Creation that still exists in its Perfect State of Communion. Its cries are the authentic expression of an unknown need. It calls out to a Higher Authority to know the thing that will bring comfort.
Crocodile/IMIX is the Divine Feminine, the Mother that was present at our Moment of Creation. As a symbol of a New Dawning, we experience an Awakening. Like a newborn, we can see that we are in a new place, though absent the sense of orientation. IMIX would have us experience ourselves as Dreamers, the Divine Identity of our Higher Self.
On the Day of our Birth we are held up to the Light. We are given a dream of a new way of living. We can see the landscape of a new horizon. We can see the potential of new experiences that will result in new understanding. IMIX encourages us to quiet the reasoning mind. This is a primordial place of creation. IMIX is the Day Sign of Innovation – ideas we’ve never thought of before. IMIX is known for offering ideas that come out of the blue. We could imagine hearing the first stories told by our Mother. We can Sense their message of hope, though we have yet to fully discern the language being spoken. We can only dream what the words mean.
To all my relations, may we celebrate our new awakening. May we stand in the Truth that what may appear as unfamiliar territory, is our Higher Ground. May we remember that the first step toward a new manifestation is dreaming what it would be. We are birthing our own Higher Self that is capable serve as the Master of our Soul. May we pay attention to our wild ideas as the Innovation for Creating a New World. May we Sense that it is safe to “let go” in the arms of a Mother who is able to bring comfort through a discernment on our behalf. May we Honor this Day with a Sacred Offering – the way we were taught to realize the Truth of our Atonement.
in lak’ech, i am another you

13 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee, Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB)
Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.
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: Symbol, Turtle Island. Direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan is the Cosmic Hearth. Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth. The beginning of each new era, this star in Orion appears with the rising Sun, heralding the creation of a new World cycle. TOTEM Imix/Dragon – Energy to understand all things sacred. Creation energy, connection for visions to learn the mysteries of the Universal knowledge. The dragon carries the source energy of life, revered in ancient cultures for power and wisdom.
