12 Wisdom / CIB – Baptism of Spirit: Day 12 of 13


12 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 empowers us with a gift for retrospection. We have the ability to draw more from our experience than what was initially seen on the surface. Wisdom/CIB amplifies this as the Wisdom drawn from our Ancestors. We are given the powers of understanding how the Energy of Spirit can accomplish a Divine Purpose. The Wisdom/CIB glyph represents the mind in its Highest State of Consciousness, made possible by Forgiveness.

Today we emerge from a 10-day Portal into the a new Consciousness of our physical reality. The purpose of the CHICCHAN trecena was to inspire us to see that our Human Journey is walk between two worlds, one no less real than the other.

Wisdom/CIB is the Day Sign of the Old Ones, the Ascended Masters who are One in the Collective of Spiritual Wisdom. They are there to serve, as the Ones who know first-hand the experience of being Human. They are Honored as the Ones who brought Light to the world, walking in the Integrity of an Intention of Love. Today we celebrate together a new accomplishment of Understanding. They promise to always be there to serve as a Portal to our Spiritual Discernment.

Wisdom/CIB reminds us of the Wisdom passed down by each generation through our cellular memories. Through our cumulative Wisdom, each generation is born holding a greater sense of our direction. The experiences of each generation compound the evidence that our primary identity is that of a Spiritual Being.

The Monarch butterfly is a symbol of Spirit whose journey of migration is among the greatest mysteries of science. The annual round trip can be a journey of up to 6,000 miles, which is completed by the effort of 4 generations. The butterfly that completes the journey home, is guided by cellular memories of a past generation. Each generation is born with a sense of direction that begins where the last generation left off. So are we, as Humans, born into the world with a Consciousness born from the Wisdom of those who came before. Each generation holds the capability to further the Spiritual Journey of Humanity.

In Spirit, the Whole of Humanity exists as one on a Divine Journey. As we are born again into the realm of physicality, CIB offers a Gift of Remembering the Truth that we are One.

Tone 12 is the Day when a new Understanding becomes part of who we are. A new Truth moves from the Head to the Heart. What we held in Faith is transformed into Belief from the Wisdom of Experience.

CIB reminds us that our Spiritual Aspirations are dependent upon Forgiveness. Our Human Nature will always be inclined to a Lower Discernment that rises from our fear of the unknown. We must Love these parts of our Self who draw the Darkness to be dispelled by our Light. CIB helps us reflect on our relationship with our Self. Through the Forgiveness of our own Human Nature, we can establish Harmony and Right Relationship within. We weren’t meant to diminish the worthiness of our own humanity, but Honor its Divine Purpose. Human is the form of our existence that must bear the time of becoming. Human is the flesh that bears the scars of living. Human holds Faith in the Darkness. And Human makes the very Choice of Divinity.

The Cherokee Day Sign the Owl, is the mystical ferryman who lights our path to the stars. Our Human physicality is the vehicle through which a Divine Transformation is made evident. Today is a day to Forgive the part of our Self that experiences the challenges of living, so we would Honor the suffering of our effort. Seeing the Divinity of both our Higher and Lower Self, we can Ascend to a Higher Consciousness of how these two sides of our self can accomplish our Journey together.

Our Human Nature is to want forgiveness for the lower choices we made from our fear of an illusion. Forgiveness is our Human Experience of Unconditional Love. Forgiveness is the Truth of Unconditional Love as we learn it along the way. Through the Vision of our Spiritual Being, we can Know that there was never anything held against us. That the Divine Eyes of a Creator, saw us as Divine at Birth, given the Sacred Charge of seeing the Darkness we would transform.

The Cherokee Owl empowers our Vision in the Darkness. 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.

To all my relations, may we Forgive our own Human Nature. May we see that our Fear of Darkness is the signal that calls for a Transformation of Light. May we Unconditionally Love our self for the Meaning of our Purpose, and bring Love to Face our Fear. May we know that we are not striving for perfection. This “broken” side of our Self is Divinely Worthy to Be. This is a day to Honor and Give thanks to the Ascended Masters. They were broken too. May we acknowledge that Divine Spirit is born through the broken heart of Humility, and see that Human is no less Divine and no less gifted than our Being of Spirit.

in lak’ech, i am another you

12 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)

Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

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.
