MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
CHICCHAN lit the fuse of our Spiritual Intention. A Vision Quest is brought to life through movement. Tone 4 carries the Intention of Stability. 4 represents the cube – the most stable forms, defined by the dimensions of height, length, depth and breadth. Tone 4 also offers orientation, reflecting the 4 directions, and helps to set the parameters, freedoms, and conditions through which we will manifest a our Intention.
Transformer/CIMI signals major life change. CIMI is said to bring the guidance of a “soft hand.” CIMI will stay by our side through the chaos, reminding us that the chaos is a major change in progress.
The Maya included the birth Day Sign in naming their newborn, so that from the beginning each child would know their meaning and purpose. One’s Destiny was recognized by the whole community by name. Those named CIMI (chee mee) are born to serve in the role of the midwife and hospice nurse, matters of life and death. The glyph is the face of death to illustrate that something always dies as something new is born. With every birth we die to an old way of being. Through death, we are reborn.
CIMI’s Spiritual Gift is Clairvoyance, seeing into the future. CIMI can comfort the Mother in labor with Visions of the newborn she will hold in her arms, and she can predict when the pain will be over. With those near death, CIMI shares the Vision of a Heavenly Reunion. CIMI looks ahead to know exactly what to do in the moment. CIMI will help us establish our Orientation by directing our thoughts to our Meaning and Purpose. And, we can accomplish Tone 4’s Intention of Stability by seeing into our future.
TRANSFORMER/CIMI: Helper through change, clairvoyant, Day Sign of Major Life Change
NORTH: Place of the Ascended Ones and their Collective Wisdom; connection to the Grandmothers and Grandfathers; faculties of the Mind to acquire Wisdom
ELEMENT OF AIR: Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit; mental activity, changeable, mental process; Sacred Breath for Creation and Healing
WHITE: The color of refinement. In the Tzolk’in’s rotation of the 4 directions, White comes after Red (counter clockwise rotation of the Medicine Wheel). White refines the understanding of the Inspiration (Red) of Serpent/CHICCHAN.
We are guided to look ahead to call on the Ascended Ones for our Stability. The Night/AKBAL trecena is completed on 13 Eagle/MEN in the 10th uinal of Manifestation. We will Manifest a Higher Vision of Spirit… an Ascension on the Wings of Eagles. This is the future CIMI wants us to Crystallize in our thoughts.
The entry for today’s Vision Quest journal could include the Dream we hope to manifest. CIMI, as the midwife would have the whole house in order. We’re guided to look ahead and prepare. In the practical matters of the Vision Quest, we could stock up on what is necessary for the time to be spent alone, or create the space where we would be.
The energies of AKBAL will be with us throughout the trecena. Expect your dreamtime to be active and be sure to write them down. We can also anticipate some chaos as a natural part of our change. The first 6 days of each trecena is the phase of Spiritual Growth, the time when we are most challenged. CIMI can help us slow down and be gentle with our self. On Tone 7 we will reach the Balancing Point, the threshold of a new transition.
To all my relations, may we hold our Highest Aspirations, becoming the Dreamer who believes that Dreams Come True. As we look to the future, may we crystallize a vision of us already there. May we give thanks to the Divine Spirits that tend the Sacred Fires and wait for us to call. May we Honor them for preserving the Sacred Wisdom, and Acknowledge their Intention to share the Gifts of Spirit.
in lak’ech, I am another you

Happy Mayan Birthday, Craig Thomas!
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. (This 21-Days of Gratitude began 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 12
I’m grateful for Sacred Choice to slow down, and that I can accomplish more when I’m not in a hurry. I’m grateful that Human was gifted to imagine our own future.
THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Night/AKBAL trecena.
4 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, TAKATO’KA)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability. Four is the cube the most stable of all forms, and the establishment of volume by definition. The four directions give orientation to any form as the height, length, depth and breadth give shape to any form. The energy of Four sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.
Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.
