MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 brings an Intention to Stabilize our Power. 4 is represented by the cube, the most stable of all forms. Tone 4 offers a sense of orientation and sets the parameters within which we can manifest our the Power of Authority. With Flint/ETZNAB guiding the trecena, we can be stabilized in the Truth of our Integrity.
Crocodile/IMIX is the symbol of a New Dawning. IMIX inspires the Dreams we would imagine if we realized we held the Power to make them Come True. IMIX is the Day Sign of Innovation, encouraging that those who follow the dreams they love are often seen as genius. IMIX brings a compassionate Love. IMIX is the Primordial Mother who was witness to the Creation of Humanity, and the Life that was drawn from the Void of the First Beginning. She is responsible for our care and feeding, and fulfills the Duty to raise us up to all we can be.
Like a voice we heard in the womb, IMIX is a day when we are inspired by new, random, and seemingly unrelated ideas and thoughts that seem to come out of the blue. The purpose is to shake up our thinking. IMIX’s first lesson is to not lean on our Human understanding. She helps us to reach for what we really Love, instead of limiting our Self to the Dreams we would Reason are possible. She teaches us that we hold Greater Power reaching for the thing that ignites our Passion, regardless of a perception of greater difficulty.
Using the Power of Authority is a projection of an inner passion. The more our Hearts are invested, the greater will be our Power. Flint can help us to see our Shadow, and the Integrity of our Dreams.
The Flint/ETZNAB trecena brings Light to the Influence of Darkness, to sweep away our Lower Intentions. Walking in Truth is the only way to maintain the Integrity of the Power we are Given.
The 7th Uinal: Peak Energy of Balance
The 7th uinal is a 20-day cycle that will establish the Balance between Heavenly and Earthly Intentions. The center of the Tzolk’in reflects our own Tree of Life. The Maya believed this to be the axis mundi – the center of the world that connects Heaven and Earth and where the four directions meet. Here there is no Duality of Good or Bad, Dark or Light. We exist in the pure essence of Being.
This is the place of the Great, “I Am.” The Tree of Life illustrates the oneness between the lower and higher planes of existence. Like the sap in the tree, that empowers a sacred exchange between the up above and the down below to nourishes the Fruit of its Branches.
The core days of the calendar release us from the discernment of duality. We are one in the primordial ooze that existed before any discernment was made of good or bad, right or wrong. Cleared of our Karma, Flint presents us in a Pure State of Spirit to be aligned for a Divine Re-Creation. Swept clean of our illusions, we can form a new foundation of discernment. We might experience this energy as detachment, having an inclination to Observe rather than React.
The 7th uinal lies as the center column in the Tzolk’in, the Galactic Butterfly. We exist as the Chrysalis of the Butterfly. IMIX attends the task of drawing a new creation from the void that can crystallize into form a new generation of Spirit. The Void the place of all possibility, where we can manifest a Truth of who we choose to be. Flint is guiding us to recreate our Self in the Truth of our Integrity.
One of my favorite lessons from the Bible is about putting on the “full armor of God.” It is a metaphysical directive to protect ourselves from the influence of darkness.
The first piece of armor is the “Helmet of Salvation.” Hats identify us by the Authority we Serve. Wearing this helmet would remind us that we identify as an Agent of a Higher Authority, and that our Power was made possible through a Sacrifice of Divine Love. Righteousness is the Breast Plate that protects the Heart. Our Intention to do what the Creator would have us do, shields us from disappointment in our Self. Our loins, the center of our Passion and Will, are girded by Truth that would evidence our True Source of Power. The Sandals of Peace allow us to walk in Harmony. Above all, the Shield of Faith wards off the influence of evil that would present the illusion of powerlessness. Holding Faith we can claim the Power of Good over Evil and Light over Darkness. The Sword is God’s Word, the Promise of our Divine Authority.
Wearing this armor we create a boundary of protection. IMIX asks us to imagine what it means to wear this Spiritual Armor and how we might use it to successfully wield our Power. Following in the footsteps of Crocodile/IMIX, the service of Compassionate Love can be seen as the Source of our own Salvation. The greatest gift we were given to share is to evidence our connection to a Higher Power that is Intended as an Inheritance to all who serve a Divine Intention for the Greatest Good of All.
Huge flakes of snow are coming down with force outside my window. These are the conditions when I get the most joy seeing the Chickadees on my balcony. It lifts my heart to know I’m providing a source of nourishment they don’t have to go too far to find. At the same time, I don’t want them to see ME as their primary Source. I may not always be here. Better that the Creator gets the credit so that the source of sustenance isn’t misdirected to the fallibility of a Human source.
To all my relations, may we contemplate the different between claiming Power as our Own and claiming the Power as a Divine Agent. May we imagine that we are meant to Wield a Sword that is the Word of God, a Divine Promise of Authority offered to every Human. Over the next 20 days, may we crystallize our New “I Am” as a witness to Divine Power, and an Agent drawing Light from Above to dispel the Darkness Below. May we Imagine our Self wearing the full armor of God.
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB)
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.
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, to the Maya, the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth.
