MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 11 holds the Intention for dynamic action that facilitates change. Tone 11 presents the final modifications for us to see a new understanding was meant to “fit in” to the Divine Plan. Tone 11 is the day the shaman climb to the highest altar for a Divine Discernment.
Crocodile/IMIX is the primordial Mother, the Mother who attended the birth of Humanity. She was the first witness to Miracle of our Being.
IMIX symbolizes the Divine Feminine. She is the alpha to Sun/AHAU, the omega. She knows the Beginning and the End. The role of the Divine Feminine is discernment. The Divine Masculine receives the Inspiration for Creation. The Divine Feminine makes the discernment of all the possibilities.
10 Sun/AHAU elevated our Will and Determination by revealing that the Power within us, is one and the same Power of an Almighty Creator. Crocodile/IMIX offers the discernment of how that fits into our Human experience, and all the Dreams made possible by our shared Divinity.
ENTERING THE 8TH UINAL: The Peak Energy of Divine Justice
11 Crocodile/IMIX introduces us into the 8th uinal. Like the 8th Tone, the 8th uinal is a cycle of 20-days that holds the Peak Energy of Transformation. Like Tone 8, this is the Holy Time when we are connected to a Divine Agency who helps us manifest our Intentions by the help of Divine Intervention. In the realm of Spirit, everything was designed to exist in perfect Harmony and Equity. No Human would have an advantage over another. We were each given the same Power to overcome our Human limitations. We will be Transformed by the Realization that God Creates Miracles through us. This is a 20-day cycle guided by Divine Intentions, where Human is capable to Discern a Divine Calling. It begins today as the Dawn of a new Awakening to the Voice of the Creator. We will hear it as a voice that speaks from the unknown.
Crocodile/IMIX holds Compassionate Love for every child of the Creator. As a Divine Mother, she holds no favorites, but loves us each the same and accepts the duty to raise each one to our Spiritual Maturity. Discernment is our means of Spiritual evolution. We would never make any progress without the ability to learn from our own Experience. We could never create something new without the Spark of inspiration.
IMIX gives birth to a new Spiritual Consciousness. IMIX offers the Discernment of Inspiration by igniting our Imagination. We are given a way to transcend our Human limitation by imagining what could have been. Without Divine Discernment, we would be stuck in the consciousness of our physical limitations, merely struggling to survive. Through Divine Discernment we find the Meaning and Purpose of living. IMIX helps us to transcend the limits of our Human Understanding.
IMIX is the Day Sign of Innovation. Engaged with the Peak Power of Creation, we’re capable to create something that has never been before. A brand new creation starts from scratch. The “wild ideas” shared by IMIX help to shake us out of preconceived notions of our Human limitation.
We first existed in the imagination of the Creator, part of a Being who always was and would always be. Human was created so share a dynamic experience of Being, made possible by a Balance… the Creator’s Consciousness of Human and Human’s Consciousness of the Creator.
This is a day noted for thoughts and ideas that come out of the blue. They are identifiable as ideas coming from someplace else. Pay attention to your thoughts. Where do thoughts come from when they interrupt your own train of thought? Pay attention, and follow the rabbit trail in your imagination. It doesn’t have to make any sense. It’s better if it doesn’t. That’s the genius of Inspiration. IMIX gives us permission to engage in what others might conceive as “crazy,” like Einstein who spent unknown hours, days, or months, following an imaginary beam of Light. Monkey/CHUEN is teaching us the joy of playing the “mad scientist” who imagines Creation.
The fundamental construct of manifestation is Breath, Matter, and Movement. Every creation is first born of Breath, an inspiration from the Voice of Spirit. It takes the form of Matter as we define what it could be. We give it life as a new vibration through the application of movement. One of the teachings from, shaman, Joseph Rael, “Beautiful Painted Arrow,” was an unlimited way to carry out this three-fold process of manifestation. For example, we could use any matter, even a rock, as an imaginary construct to move an Intention of Spirit. Children naturally create this way.
When my daughter was little, she loved to play with a set of my Grandma’s salt and pepper shakers. My son and I would hear her talking in the kitchen, and find her engaging a conversation between the salt and the pepper. Okay – so I have to get a little crazy here, but Joseph taught that you can bring life to a creation by playing “paper dolls” with a couple of rocks (or any thing), using them as the representation of a real life experience. In so doing, you are moving matter through time along a course of Intention to create a vibration in the real world.
Maybe it will seem less crazy if you consider a Truth of science that the mind doesn’t know the difference between a “real” and an “imagined” experience. The Miraculous Aspect of our Imagination is that we are in full control of the Desired Outcome.
All our Spiritual Gifts are an everyday part of who we are. We discern the miraculous as common-place because it happens all the time. We overlook the very miracle of how we were made. Imagine how difficult it would be, if getting from place A to place B required us to reason which muscles to engage to get there. Most movement is an unconscious response to an imagined Intention. It’s a Truth too subtle to notice unless we pay attention. The “wild ideas” of IMIX are the thoughts of the Creator, that engage our Imagination, the place of Human’s unbridled freedom of movement.
Today is the Dawn of a New Awakening to the sound of the Creator’s Voice, calling us to create Beauty as we have never seen it before. In the womb of our Mother we exist in our unlimited potential of Being. A Divine Mother’s greatest joy is the Happiness of her Children. IMIX encourages us to pursue those dreams that make us happy and bring joy to our lives. Passion ignites our greatest capabilities.
This is a day to pay attention to our wild ideas. IMIX is said to be seen as Genius when they follow their heart. We are given a blank canvas upon which to create a world of our imagination. We can bring a Dream to Life with the help of Divine Intervention.
To all my relations, may we Dream the Dream of our True Passion. May we not settle for something less, just because our greatest dream seems impossible. The dreams that haven’t manifested in our lives, are the ones we gave up on before we even started. May we know that our Passion will bring out the Genius in our Self. May we offer our Gratitude and Appreciation for a Creator who intended us to do more than just live to survive. The Creator’s Highest Intention was that we Live in Beauty and Happiness. Dreams that hold the Intention of Happiness and Harmony can miraculously come true through the help of Divine Intervention. From a place of Higher Inspiration, may we follow an inspiration to create a Dream we never thought possible before.
in lak’ech, i am another you

21 DAYS of CEREMONY: Day 11
Observing 21 days of Personal Sacred Ceremony is a traditional preparation for the K’iche Maya New Year, 8 B’atz (8 Monkey/CHUEN). The New Year is a celebration of Time, and the day of Initiation for the new Mayan Daykeepers. We are preparing for an initiation into a new way of being. We can employ the Magic of the Jaguar by observing these 21 Days in Gratitude.
I’m grateful for the miracle of imagination. I’m grateful that nothing is impossible, just because it doesn’t yet exist, that we are never limited to “what is.” I’m grateful that “genius” was a gift of equal opportunity. I’m grateful for a new Awakening, that will magnify the Voice of Creator.

11 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee, Turtle/ DAK’SI)
Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.
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.
