MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
1 Flint/ETZNAB brought light to something that has existed in the shadows. Flint opens an opportunity to bring a healing by sweeping away something that is broken. Today we consider an Intention to seek the Truth that will free us from the illusion of darkness.
Storm/CAUAC brings the comforting energies of Home, where we would be nourished and inspired by the possibility of the Total Freedom of Being. Storm’s lightning displays the Unbridled Energy of Spirit that is capable to find its own path through unlimited possibility.
There is a feeling of vulnerability with Tone 2 that comes from our Human discernment of Duality. Our Lower Self defines our experience as good or bad, right or wrong, black or white. We discern our experience on a sliding scale of one extreme to the other. We decide whether a Dream is “to be or not to be” based on a personal discernment of the degree of possibility.
CAUAC ignites the electricity of our Spiritual Being. 2 Storm/CAUAC reminds us of the Unlimited Potential of Spirit when this Power is Engaged with the Passion of Creation.
Duality relates to the processes of the Human mind and the Principle of Polarity. Though we see things as black or white, the Principle of Polarity reminds us that both are the same thing to a variable degree. Hot and Cold are the same thing. At what temperature do we discern one from the other? At what degree does easy become hard? Polarity helps us see the experiences that share the same vibration, a vibration that can be modified by our Intention. For example, love and hate exist as one and the same vibration to a varying degree. Based on the Principle of Polarity these extremes of experience reside in the same wave length. Where hate exists, there is greater power for it to be transmuted to love, than if there were no feelings at all. Our Intentions hold the Spiritual Power to move this sliding scale.
Flint/ETZNAB is guiding us to employ the Power of our own Truth – the Truth that we Intend To Be. Tone 2 presents us with the extremes from which we choose the degree we would manifest. CUAUC empowers the Electricity of our Being to move the sliding scale. We hold the Authority of Spirit to move from hate to love.
The mind is electrical in nature, sending signals throughout the body. CAUAC reminds us of the unbridled nature of electricity. Electricity is not “contained,” but free in its nature to influence matter outside of itself. Our own thoughts, when focused on an Intention, have the power to influence the degree of that vibration in matter outside of our Self. Like Deer/MANIK who stands vigilantly in its own Truth, when we stand in the Truth we would create, we hold the Power of Harmonic Resonance. Consciousness holds Authority over Unconsciousness.
This is an important day to monitor our thoughts and engage the Higher Self. By turning to our Higher Self, we can choose how far we slide the scale. We hold the power to influence vibration through our Intention.
I woke again to my experience of darkness, wondering, calculating, if “offenses” were as bad as they seemed or just my faulty perception. It seemed real. For years, Fall meant the beginning of a debilitating depression of self-doubt. I haven’t experienced an extreme since I began my Daily Journal, though this Fall I noticed a sense of dread with the diminishing light. It was darkness lurking around corners, though as a thinly veiled illusion. The Discernment by my Higher Self was that what I’m feeling is an adjustment to a new season and a new cycle of energy. We can “take on” darkness when we claim it as our own. I’m my own living proof that Consciousness holds Authority over depression.
Observation of our thoughts is the work of our Higher Self. Our Lower Self is engaged in finding the reasons “why.” Knowing the source of our Inner Voice, our Higher Self can reveal “all that is, and all that is not.” Turning to our Higher Self generates the experience of Receiving Unconditional Love.
CAUAC delivers a Renewal of Spirit and Gift of Inner Strength. November 3-4 is a Full SuperMoon of Intense Transformation and Release. We can claim the Transformation we Choose, and Release what we no longer Choose. Tomorrow we will offer our Dream to the Creator, Sun/AHAU, who can instill the Will and Courage to Command the Truth of our Dreams. We can choose a Dream we think is Humanly possible, or we can reach for the stars. Reaching for the stars we can experience the Greatness of our Power of Authority.
Through a gift of “lightning in the blood” CAUAC regenerates our Power of Spirit. Just as Human heads for shelter in the storm, so are Spirits called within. Lightning is the Power of Electricity that connects the Above and the Below.
To all my relations, may we engage our Higher Self to see all that is and all that is not, and choose the Intention that calls a response from the Heart. May we Dream of being Free of our attachment to experiences of darkness by turning to the Wisdom of Spirit. The Elders often say, “It’s not whether you will know what to do. It’s whether you remember.” May we claim the Truth that we will Create our Intention by the Power of our Authority, and claim that we will remember.
in lak’ech, I am another you

2 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.

How is your Spiritual path today?
I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!
I was surprised to look up and see snow falling out my window… the first snow of a new season. A cozy blanket of clouds hover over my place on Mother Earth. It reminds me how the greatest comforts of home are experienced when it’s raining or snowing outside. The Maya see the clouds and precipitation as the Blessing of the ancestors. Snow and Rain seem to offer the permission and invitation to go within and to draw our comfort. It feels as if Mother Earth is calling us to draw comfort to our Spirit, to nourish, sleep, and dream.
