MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 6 brings the Peak Energy to complete a new climb of Spiritual Growth. In a Conscious Effort of Faith we reach our stride through a consistent rhythm and pace of movement. An Unseen Power of momentum supports our final effort in a new wave of Transformation. Tone 6 facilitates Dynamic Developments in all aspects of our life. The Light of a New Sun helps us see where we are going.
The Serpent, or snake, is one of the oldest and widespread symbols of fertility and the Creative Life Force held within Every Thing. The Snake’s Power of Rebirth, Transformation, and Renewal of Life are seen in its ability to shed its old skin. 5 Seed/KAN helped release us from our karmic debt, and now Serpent/CHICCHAN prepares us for Dynamic Growth by offering a new freedom of movement.
The Snake makes its Way in the World by relying on its Sense of Vibration. Snake’s ability to detect the vibrations of movement connected to the Earth serves as the catalyst for its own swift and decisive action.
CHICCHAN draws our awareness to the Vibration of our own Life Force. Known as the Day Sign that brings “lightning in the blood,” CHICCHAN serves as a catalyst to ignite our “Sixth Sense” of Inner Knowing.
Every Human was given the Spiritual Gift of Intuition. This can be a subtle force that we barely notice in the times when we perceive an unseen danger, or have a sense of something going on when we walk into a room. The more effort we employ in being Conscious in the Moment, the more obvious these senses become. Tone 6 draws us into a flow of movement that becomes second nature. Serpent/CHICCHAN is the catalyst that ignites our Supernatural Instincts so they can serve as our bearings and motivation of movement.
The Highest Day Sign of the Tzolk’in, Sun/AHAU, is guiding us toward an Ascension on the Road to our Divine Destiny. Our path from Point A to Point B can be made straight by following our Inner Guidance.
Today offers the potential of a psychic experience of Intuition, Telepathy, or a Sense of Inner Knowing. This is a day to pay attention to our Physical Senses. The Power of these Forces is Magnified by paying attention. We may have overlooked our Spiritual Gifts, either by writing them off as coincidental, or otherwise failing to recognize their existence or merit. Our Spiritual Gifts lie dormant until, through consciousness, we draw them into service.
Serpent/CHICCHAN’s gift of “lightening in the blood” makes these Supernatural Gifts noticeable. Through a new consciousness we hold the Power to Command our Inner Resources.
The Cherokee describe Serpent’s power as vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, and the trigger that sets off the action. The recognition and acknowledgement of our Intuitive Senses is the catalyst for them to Grow.
How can we Raise our Our Own Consciousness to this Evidence of Spirit? My first teacher on the Medicine Path, Joseph Rael “Beautiful Painted Arrow,” was asked how he became capable of such tangible shamanic experiences. His simple answer was, “I just obey.”
Serpent/CHICCHAN “bestirs our blood to speak” to become the Inner Voice we could “obey.” This is simply the process of following our own gut instincts. I first began to experience this as the Inner Voice that called in Sacred Ceremony. It was as simple as an inspiration to offer cornmeal on my altar, or an inner calling to light a candle. As I made the choice to follow this inner guidance, the more this Voice stood out from my ordinary thoughts. I began to notice this voice had always been there, was always with me, and it became a Voice I could call on.
Serpent/CHICCHAN is the spark that lights the fuse to ignite our Spiritual Senses. Under a New Sun we are gifted with a new Sense of Inner Guidance that will help us to grow into the Maturity of our Spirit. We gain a new momentum as we trade-in the lower instincts of our ego for our Higher Instincts of Spirit.
To all my relations, may we look for the Signs of our own Awakening Spirit. As we walk with the Highest Day Sign of the Tzolk’in, Sun/AHAU, may we know the Unseen Gifts of a Spiritual Warrior. May we acknowledge and respond to our Inner Callings – even when we are guided in the smallest of ways. CHICCHAN is the catalyst that turns the Light On. Dynamic changes are possible. By shedding our old skin of perceived limitations, we are gifted with a new sensitivity to the Vibration of Spirit.

6 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent Do’tsi)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.
