MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
We are stabilized on Tone 4 by Widsom/CIB. The glyph illustrates the mind in its Highest State of Forgiveness and Enlightenment. The Reed/BEN trecena guides us to find our stability by drawing upon Divine Wisdom.
The Resistance to Forgive is born from the Fear that something has been taken that can’t be recovered. The signs of our Unforgiveness can be discovered in our unconscious thoughts, hiding behind the pain of injustice. or fear that our suffering is proof of something lacking in our Self. We take offense for the circumstances that present a struggle to overcome. We feel we are separated from the worthiness of the whole.
We aren’t alone. Wisdom/CIB is the Day Sign of the Old Ones and the Wisdom that can Light our Way. Wisdom/CIB serves as the Valiant Defenders of family and community. The Cherokee Day Sign of the Owl is described as the Mystic Ferryman who holds a torch aloft, guiding Earthlings on the return path to the stars. “Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear.”
Owl is capable to see in the dark. 4 Wisdom/CIB calls us to build a foundation on the Wisdom of Forgiveness that will serve as Our Guiding Light.
Tone 4 of Stability represents the cube, the most stable of all geometric forms. Tone 4 establishes the parameters, freedoms and barriers within which we are capable to manifest our Dream. As a symbol of the 4 Directions, Tone 4 offers us the stability of orientation.
The Ascended Masters who walked this way before faced the same challenges and pain of injustice. They discovered that through forgiveness, a way was opened to accomplish their Highest States of Consciousness.
Wisdom/CIB reflects the tremendous inner strength of the Ascended Masters. They guide us to the silent introspection that would leads us to the discovery of areas within our Self that hold opportunities for Wisdom and Strength more valuable than any archaeological treasure. They can lead our thoughts back to the Light of our Highest Power of Love.
Eagle/MEN is a Blue Day Sign holding the Purpose of “Light.” Days led by Blue and Red Day Signs offer the “Light” of Divine Inspiration. Eagle’s Light inspired us to Give Life to our Highest Aspirations. Wisdom/CIB is a Yellow Day Sign holding the Purpose of “Dark.” Like a binary signal, the Light is turned off for an Application of Inspiration that would raise the Wisdom of our own Experience.
As we begin to Apply our Self in the Effort of Accomplishing our Highest Dreams, we are faced with our own perception of reality. The Dream we were inspired to Dream might suddenly feel beyond our grasp. Cherishing such lofty Dreams, we might face our own sense of Powerlessness. In this State of Unforgiveness we might find ourselves blaming everything and everyone who appears to stand in our way. We can also blame our Self for not being enough.
From my own experience, I see these thoughts as the “warning bell” of negativity that can lead to depression. Unforgiveness can blind us from experiencing the Light of Love. Powerlessness is born from a Loss of Love and Faith in our Self or Others. When we withhold our forgiveness, we surrender our Primary Source of Power.
The Ascended Masters are present and waiting for us to call. They know the experience of being Human, and walked the “hard road” in the darkness of the unknown. The “Light” they manifested from their journey to Higher Consciousness is magnified from the realm of Spirit. They now reside In The Light that was Always Shining, and the Firsthand Witnesses to our Final Blessing of Divine Justice.
If we look to our Shining Examples, we might notice that the “hard road” they faced was often darker than others. Their Light was made even Brighter by the injustice overcome by their Love and Forgiveness.
At the Altar within our Heart CIB shines a Light on the Darkness within. There is no shame or blame. This is the Source of a Treasure that holds an Opportunity for a Divine Healing of Grace and Forgiveness.
This morning I realized the challenges of the world have little to do with the Real Challenges within myself. My own hopes and dreams are centered around the way I would live my own life, and Be who I want to Be. I wondered what it is that seems to hold me back from my personal aspirations. My first thought was to blame circumstances outside of myself. Though I recognized my darker fear is that I am somehow lacking the Will to Succeed.
My loftiest Dreams are not so far out of reach. My thoughts have been called to Home. Most of all, I just want to know that I’m capable to invest myself in the things I know I can do… simple things, like taking the best care of myself and my home, and following through from Divine Inspiration. Life suddenly seemed short for the time I might need to gain the Inner Strength to accomplish things important to me.
The Old Ones who walked this way before, experienced the same challenges and disappointments in themselves. In His darkest hour, even Christ called out to the Creator, “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me.” (Luke 22:42)
Wisdom/CIB lies in the direction of our relationships. We are called to make Peace with our Self and Others. In our darkest hour, the Old Ones encourage us to lay bare our deepest fears. As we allow our Lower Self to share its fear, the Holy Spirit within waits with the Answer. A Mind of Higher Consciousness holds the discernment of our longing for Forgiveness, and Renewal of our Faith in Divine Justice. The Ascended Masters’ Highest Gifts to the world were accomplished by Forgiveness.
Just as we desire to share all the wisdom we could with our children, so our Ancestors desire to let their support be known. Wisdom/CIB empowers our ability to look at the facts and think things through. The Ancestors are With Us Now as an Inner Voice of Wisdom. Their Wisdom offers the foundation upon which we can stabilize our Intention.
To all my relations, may the Altar of our Home include an Offering to the Elders to Honor the Wisdom of their Experience. May we pray for the Inner Strength to demonstrate the truth that every experience is worthy. When our children bring their broken dreams, may we share their disappointment, and offer comfort and understanding. May we pick ourselves up and brush ourselves off, when we face our own disappoints and build a foundation on Unconditional Love. May we call on the Ascended Masters for help, and be Healed by their Wisdom of Grace and Forgiveness.

4 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. A good day to sit on a rock.
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ O’JJ: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritative. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.
