MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to get a better perspective of the bigger picture. Tone 9 helps to complete a new transformation through a broader understanding of our Reason and Purpose. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Tone 9 comes with a warning that there could be suffering from the lack of this important insight.
The Reed/BEN trecena is drawing us into a Divine Channel of Communion with the Creator. With Tone 9 we see the reason why this was part of the Divine Plan.
Crocodile/IMIX is the womb of Creation. IMIX calls us back to our Reason for Being and our Divine Purpose for Living. We were meant to become all that we could imagine. Human is born as a Being of Duality. We were made a Being of Physicality and a Being of Spirit. Human is a being of symmetry. Both sides of our Self were created to be equal to each other. IMIX clarifies our Understanding that both sides of our Consciousness were given an equal purpose.
Today we enter the 4th Uinal of Stability. 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all geometric forms. The 4 directions represents the 4 elements of our Human experience – Divine Inspiration (East), the influence of our Relationships (South), our journey through the unknown experiences of our life (West), and the Wisdom drawn from experience (North). 4 offers us a sense of orientation and the foundation upon which both sides of our Self can be drawn into balance.
IMIX is the Day Sign that speaks to our Imagination. Known as the Day Sign of Innovation, IMIX is known for bringing wild ideas seemly out of nowhere, like a voice that spoke to us in the womb. IMIX encourages balance between our mind of Reason and to the Gift of our Imagination. Herein lies our two realms of being. As Human we measure our experience on facts we discern by Reason, limited to discernment of our Human senses. Our Source of Divine Discernment is our Sixth Sense, seated within the realm of the Imagination. Using ALL our Senses we hold the Power of All Possibility.
When we live solely for our Human Experience, we create the veil that separates us from experiencing our Whole Being. We don’t need special gifts to recognize that we spend the majority of our time invested in the physical world. It’s our Human instinct that defines our wants and needs as mere possessions in the physical world, even though we could reason their purpose is finite. We will leave it all behind. Through the Transformation of our Consciousness, we become aware of the Treasures that will Last through Eternity.
After the loss of one of my dearest friends, I shared a Spiritual Experience of her “Visit from Spirit” with a new acquaintance. I didn’t see her face or hear her voice, though I was conscious of her energy and telepathic thoughts. It was a silent conversation, though I recognized her “voice” in the way she responded to my questions. The thoughts were recognizable as her manner and personality.
I was taken back when the person with whom I shared this story told me it was a bunch of bunk. “We live, we die, and that’s the end of it.” He noted that if this Spiritual stuff actually existed, he’d have heard from his Mother.
I’ve come to acknowledge a presence ANY time my thoughts are drawn to the Loved Ones who now exist in Spirit. I leave the door open, because I Believe in the Communion of Spirits. How would you ever experience it, if you had no interest to look?
I imagined what life would be like if “this is all there is.” Suddenly, the world seemed finite and small… just a place of over-population where there’s not “enough” to go around. I thought how limited my life would be, void of any experience of Spirit. I had a new realization of just how much my Faith mattered in my life. How empty life would be if Human was just another temporary thing to be tossed aside or recycled. Right or wrong, I renewed my own choice to exist in my unlimited world of Meaning and Purpose.
We have the Power to Create the world we live in. Some have speculated that our Dreaming could be the “real world” and our “waking life” the actual Dream. A better analogy might lie in comparing “real life” to a game. When we play a digital game, we get to choose the role, the armor, and the challenge we would explore. We become the avatar that takes on these aspects conceived in Spirit. From this angle we could see that the Spiritual Realm IS our Real World where all our choices and intentions define our physical experience. The physical realm would then be just a place of experience, not an end unto itself.
Human is passing through an important time of Spiritual Awakening. We are becoming more aware that the chaos of the world is a mash-up of competing ideologies. We live in a physical world with 7.5 billion players exercising their own free will. Our Authority lies in the realm of Spirit. We can’t stop the world from spinning, but we can exist in the Center where we are Free, and can watch it go by. We can have the Peace on Earth we were promised, where nothing in the world can destroy the Treasure of our Spirit.
As we begin a journey through the 4th Uinal of Stability, we can build our foundation upon our Dreams of Spirit. We can Choose the things that really matter as the Center of our Life.
IMIX is our Primordial Mother who teaches us to Dream. She is the Divine Feminine and a Mother of Compassion that sees the Promise and Potential in each of her children. She takes on the duty and responsibility of raising us up to be what we were intended to be.
IMIX is the symbol of the Dawn of a New Awakening. So is 9 a number of a Spiritual Awakening. 9 holds the energy of Universal Love, eternity, faith, and the Spiritual Laws of Karma.
The Cherokee Day Sign of the Turtle represents the Constellation of Orion, which at the beginning of each new era, appears with the rising of the Sun. We stand at the Dawning of a New World that can suddenly be placed under our Full Control as we are made capable to conceive the Truth of our Spiritual Power.
To all my relations, may we see ourselves standing in the footsteps of all who have gone before who Looked for the Sign of a New Dawning. May we recognize our Oneness in an effort of a Divine Accomplishment. May we listen to the “wild ideas” of IMIX that can open the door to our Imagination. May we embrace a way of Living that isn’t limited by facts or reason, but a place of magic that exceeds our Human understanding.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and insight on the Uinals and Portal Days of the Reed/BEN trecena.
9 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
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: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan is the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the 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.
