MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 7 is the Peak Energy of Balance. We’re given a gift of Reflection and a 360 view from the “top of the pyramid.” On Tone 7 we can see all that is, and all that is not by reflecting on the experiences that were part of our climb. The Dog/OC trecena offered a Spiritual Climb to Higher Consciousness of Love.
Wisdom/CIB is the Day Sign of the Old Ones, the Ascended Masters who learned the Wisdom of Love. The glyph illustrates the mind in its Highest State of Consciousness made possible by Forgiveness. The Forgiveness we offer is an exchange that’s worthy for an experience of Love.
Tone 7 completes the Balance between the Above and the Below. The Spiritual Principle of Correspondence passed down from the Ancient Masters of Spirit, shares the Truth that what is created in one realm of our existence is balanced in all realms – the realms of Spirit, Mind, and Physicality. Today the Love we created on Earth is stored in the realm of Spirit, to be made a permanent part of our Experience of Living.
PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether – The Peak Energy of Tone 7 is magnified by a Portal. These are days when the veil is lifted to other dimensions. Portals magnify our experience of Spirit and all our Spiritual Gifts. On 7 Wisdom/CIB, a portal magnifies our Experience of Love.
7 Wisdom/CIB is a day to reflect on the treasures of Love we’ve gathered. As we see the end of another year on earth, we could reflect on the abundance of Love we’ve received throughout the past 12 months. The Love we acknowledge will be the substance of a new Transformation, carried out by Divine Intervention.
This trecena has been a hard climb, like a new search for the meaning of my life. The hurry of the day-to-day and the perfect images of the family holiday became a focus of my expectations. Perhaps my expectations for love were sidetracked, tied to the experience of people opening a package.
On 6 Jaguar/IX I experienced the Flow of Love when called upon to watch my two youngest grandsons, 3 and 4. I live in a small apartment, so most of our visits happen at their house. Some of the disappointment around the holidays is not having a place where people can gather, in contrast to the images of home the world presents at Christmas. It was special to share their company in my home.
To occupy their interest I prepared an art project for pouring acrylic paint on canvas. The results aren’t dependent on skill level. The paints create their own designs from the varying densities of pigment in each color. Having paints mixed and ready to go, it only took a few minutes – just long enough to hold both of their attention and return the feeling of accomplishment.
While we were all sitting side-by-side pouring paint, Brady (4) told me he didn’t have a dog anymore. They lost Fritz to cancer a couple of weeks before Christmas. I shared that Fritz was in a happy place where he was healthy again, like a puppy. I told him that whenever he thinks of Fritz and gets that feeling of Love in his heart, Fritz will feel it too and know he was a good dog. Brady said, “I’m thinking about him now.”
Though it was only a momentary exchange, it multiplied to abundance as I reflected on it later. Most all our exchanges are playing together, sharing toys or food. In hindsight I felt the magnitude of a 4 year-old sharing feelings of his heart. All the troubles of living seemed insignificant for the experience of that moment. With thoughts of my own Grandma Naomi still on my mind, I knew my Love also held a place in his heart.
Each age of our life holds its own special challenges and hurdles. Our lives were planned to return the kind of Love that we most need at any age. We were given an unlimited number of sources for a connection to the Divine.
When we realize the Power in just one moment of Love, we’d know that forgiveness is a small price to pay for another opportunity.
Love has the Power to Heal. When we feel Love we can Acknowledge the Touch God’s Hand that brings a Healing of Heart, Mind, and Body. “Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity.”
To all my relations, may we acknowledge all the Love that’s touched our Heart. May we take inventory of the Love that will be stored forever, remembering all the Love passed down by the generations that came before. May we imagine the Love we could store over a lifetime… whether its within our biological family, or through those we choose to Love as family. All of Humanity are the first descendants of the Creator. We are One in the Family of Spirit. May we see that Love is worth living for, no matter the challenges we face. May we be grateful for the gift that rises far above any worldly validation, esteem, or material possession we could ever acquire.
On New Year’s Eve, may we celebrate another year to experience the Joy of Love, and another opportunity to grow Love like a Crop. May we see the Whole of Love we could create as the Fruit of our Spiritual Harvest, the Gift we pass down to the next generation.
Wishing you Love in more abundance than your heart can hold.
in lak’ech – i am another you

A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. Today is the 21st day started on 11 Jaguar/IX. Today on 5 Jaguar/IX gifts us with an Empowerment of Gratitude.
Since Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Gratitude, it seems right and good to begin and end every 21 days on Jaguar/IX. So, today will be both Day 21 of one ceremony, and also Day 1 of the next. (Our next 21-Days of Gratitude begins 5 Jaguar/IX (Kin 174) and ends on 12 Jaguar/IX (Kin 194), a day of Understanding the Magic of Gratitude.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 3
I’m grateful for the innocent love of children and for living long enough to be a Grandma. I’m grateful for the new children that showed up this year to collect the trash for $1 a bag… and grateful for the opportunities to offer something extra, like an ice pop or a cookie… simple gifts of exchange, but enough to find as many as 5 children waiting when I open the door.

7 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective; 7 stands as the mirror to divide light and dark and reflects all that is and is not. 7 is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will. 7 establishes the purpose to current and future goals.
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.
