MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The energy of Tone 11 helps us to find our place in the world. Dynamic developments are made possible by Divine Inspiration. We can be inspired to see where our Human Power of Creation fits into the Creator’s plan.
Earth/CABAN draws our awareness to Mother Earth. Earth was the Creator’s gift to Human, our place of becoming and our source for all knowledge. Here we could learn that we are connected as One to the dynamic forces of nature. The perpetually renewable magic of Mother Earth is a reflection of who we are. The Earth presents us with beauty in every direction.
Tone 11 is the day the shaman climb to the highest altar. Through an offering, they are atoned with the Creator and connected to Divine Wisdom. Drawn close to Mother Earth we can find the Clarity of our Purpose. Earth is the living altar where we can be transformed to our Highest State of Being. The sound of her beating heart moves us into the magic of gratitude.
My Mom and Dad celebrated their 90th birthdays over this past year. They’ve lived a simple, but charmed life living their retirement years on the land that was settled by my ancestors 150 years before. My great grandmother grew up in a one-room cabin and survived a winter in a dugout. The “family farm” is about 15 miles from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House on the Prairie,” remembered in her books about life on the Kansas plains.
All my parents’ children are still living. They are still capable to live on their own at home, and they are still very much in love with each other. Though Mother’s short-term memory is failing, she can still remember who we are. They’ve maintained their love of life and still show the signs of their youth. Dad’s last medical incident was brought on by himself. He didn’t take his medicine one day so that he and Mom could make a trip of 45 miles and back without having to stop at a bathroom. It was a “Bonnie and Clyde” adventure at 85. Dad needed to renew his driver’s license, and Sedan, KS was recommended as the easiest place for Seniors to go. Their continued presence is a greater blessing with each passing year.
I’m grateful to have had the time to resolve my childhood resentment of the mistakes I held against them. Today I can see them for the blessing they have always been. I realize the greatest hurts they imposed were unconscious, and sometimes misdirected, acts of love. I always had a home, a bed, and something to eat. As a single parent making a visit back home, Dad always took a look under the hood of my car and quietly pressed a $20 bill into my hand as we said goodbye. Mom always greeted us with something special on the table. Pouring over her recipe books was good for hours of entertainment. She taught us to play the piano. Though some aspects of their “old time religion” were the source of differences, they taught me the value of Faith. Today I’m humbled that I have been so fortunate as this. I’ve done nothing to deserve such a blessing.
It’s made me think about how marvelous Human was made that we can live for so many years. Human’s capability to acquire wisdom and understanding extended my own life past cancer at 32. It’s taken all my 66 years to see what I’ve taken for granted. I’m grateful to be alive long enough to see the blessings of my life.
Earth/CABAN draws our awareness to our Oneness with Mother Earth. We were raised from Earth to become a Living Creation. Our Lives our joined to a living world in perpetual movement. We were made to resemble our parents. Earth/CABAN reflects our own dynamic nature, our cycles and seasons of being, and our own Forces of Earth’s Magic. The Earth is Conscious of her children, just as we are conscious of her.
The Cherokee Day Sign, the Heron, is a symbol of perpetual movement. The Heron doesn’t live in one place, but in the perpetual movement of migration. The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix that is capable to live again, rising from the ashes of its past.
As Human we are also given the power to Rise Again. We were made by a Creator who made it possible for Hearts who have lost all hope, to start all over again to create a new experience of living. Galactic Tone 11 raises us up to see our Higher Purpose for living is to use the blessing of Unconditional Love to create Heaven on Earth. What may seem impossible in the Earthly realm IS possible in the Unlimited Potential of Spirit. Our Love will ripple through the whole, as our own darkness is transformed to Light.
This is our most important purpose. Just as Mother Earth sustains us in ways we don’t even see, so can we sustain one another through Powers Unseen. Mother Earth can be our Source of Hope that we can Rise Again. Through forgiveness we can be raised to our Highest State of Consciousness. We can accept the darkness as the gift that helped us See the Light.
Just as Mother Earth is a renewable resource that has stood the test of time, so can Human make itself new. Human was given the potential for long-life, the time that may be necessary to discover the Truth of who we are.
Tone 11 offers us the clarity to see how we were meant to uphold the harmony of our lives together. The signs and wonders in the sky, mark an important time in our Human history to fulfill our life’s purpose. How much long could Human wait to bring Peace on Earth? How much darkness must it take to employ everything within our Power to Create something new?
A Divine Inspiration calls us into a vigil for Mother Earth. May we light candles for her, and honor the life sustained by her through the demonstration of ritual and sacred ceremony. May we manifest on Mother Earth what we would Create in Spirit, acknowledging Her as our Highest Altar.
To all my relations, may our Hearts be Drawn to Mother Earth and the Beauty of our Life with her. May we draw close to her to return the Love she has always provided to us. May we marvel at all she is capable to give, and be changed by the revelation of all her power and beauty. May we seek to resemble her in the way that we live. May we love and protect her and all her children. May we see her beauty in the smallest creatures, and call forth the beauty we share within our Self. God planned a way for us to Rise from our Ashes. May this be our Highest Intention and our most important reason for being. May we be inspired to Move Now into the Power of Unconditional Love that dispels every darkness. May we realize the Magic that is born of our gratitude for Mother Earth. May we Love her, from the beauty of her majesty to the details of each blade of grass. May our tears of gratitude be the Holy Water we offer to her for our mutual Blessing and Purification. May we offer our Self to her as the Hand on Earth that holds the Power of Divinity. May we pay back and pay forward the gifts she has given us by holding a Dream of Heaven as Peace on Mother Earth.

11 Earth Caban (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
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.
Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.
Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement and perpetual motion, Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.
