On Tone 7 we complete our climb of Spiritual Growth. The Intention held by Tone 7 is Balance. It’s called the “tone of reflection” because it guides us to see all that is, and all that is not. From the top of the pyramid, we have a 360 degree view.
Tone 7 represents the Intention of Balance and the Principle of “As Above, So Below.” This principle was preserved in Ancient teachings as a Truth that what is accomplished in one realm of existence (spirit, mental, imagination, physical) is balanced in every other realm.
This is the fundamental process of the power to Create. The experiences we create are born from the Ethers. We’re driven by a Consciousness we barely pay attention to. We create our experience through every choice we make, consciously or unconsciously.
The AKBAL trecena’s purpose is to inspire us to harness the Power of Spirit within our Self… to use this principle to Dream a Dream we want to come True.
Offering/MULUC is the day of Atonement. Through the giving of a Sacred Offering, we are in Oneness with the Creator. When we Offer our Gratitude, we enter into a Sacred Exchange. The first Offerings were given to us. In Sacred Ceremony with the Creator, we are Conscious of each other.
PORTAL DAY: Ether of Spirit
The Peak Energy of Balance is magnified by a portal that thins the veil to all dimensions. At Peak Tone 7 we are given a 360 view from the “top of a pyramid” to see the connections between the Spirit and Natural World all around use. A portal can magnify the Truth that we are Creating from the Realm of Spirit. Portals are days that magnify our Gifts of Spirit – our Sixth Sense of Knowing.
Tone 7 intends for us to look all around to see everything that is, and everything that is not. We are called to see the Creation in progress. The Intention we invested in our Dream will be Balanced between the Above and the Below.
Offering/MULUC is the Day Sign of Water everywhere from the cosmos to our tears… the Element capable to hold the Ether of Spirit. This is a day of Spiritual Baptism and Purification. As a sign of the Moon and our Emotions, we are guided to Honor all our feelings, and the feelings of others. Made One through an Offering of our Self, the language of the Heart will be our Divine Communion with the Creator. The calling from our own Heart expresses the Dream we most hope for. Our Offering will be transformed as the Creator’s Sacred Exchange of Divine Justice.
The glyph illustrates a single drop of water, suspended above the whole. Through the Sacred Ceremony of an Offering, we are raised up into Atonement. In Oneness we can see ourselves through the Creator’s eyes. As the One drop returns to the whole, the Love that was seen will ripple through the Collective Consciousness. Our own Blessing will become a Blessing to the Whole, completing the Justice of Harmony and Equity.
The Cherokee Day Sign, The River, is the coming together of the Collective in the Current and Flow of Spirit. The Spirits of our Grandfathers and Grandmothers falls with the Rain and Flows through the Rivers to become One in the Ocean. So does the Water of our own Tears evaporate into the Whole, uniting us in Spirit.
TONE 7: Balancing; the Flow of Divine Will; seeing all that is and all that is not; guides the intention to reflect on our experience
OFFERING/MULUC: Water everywhere, sign of the moon and our emotions; healing of emotions; day of paying back and paying forward; day of Sacred Offerings and Atonement
EAST: Beginnings, inspiration, the Sunrise; source of Light, Life and Happiness
ELEMENT OF FIRE: Though MULUC represents Water, it’s Element is Fire; Fire is capable to transmute all other Elements; the Fire of Spirit, Spark of the Creator
RED: The color of initiation; as the first color in the rotation of the directions, Red Day Signs initiate a new thought or inspiration in the process of understanding; Red Day Signs initiate a Divine Inspiration.
To all my relations, may we share the Consciousness of the Creator through our sacred rituals, prayers and offerings. May we acknowledge the gifts first offered to us. May we Pay Forward through an offering of Gratitude, holding a vision of our future. As we kneel at an altar below, may we reflect on how we are seen by the Creator at an altar Above.
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 16
I’m grateful for all the gifts of the Creator. I’m grateful that the Unconditional Love of the Creator, always waits for us to appear – we appear at the Divine Altar Above, whenever we kneel at the altar Below.

7 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
Galactic tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will. With a keen sense of ethics, seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA BO EO IW: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The River is the “Fountain of Life” and represents the fluid of the cosmos to fluids in the body, with the energy to clear all karmic debts, personally and on a mass level with fluidity and grace. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
