MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S BLOG
A Manifestation of Spirit…
Tone 10 is the day of Manifestation. We are offered the “Spiritual Gift” of Manifesting what we claim.
We started with a Divine Inspiration about a new way of Being. We dreamed of the Power we might hold if we were Spiritually Gifted, and able to use those Gifts for the purpose of living a Life that we could experience as Happy and Whole.
The work of our Spiritual Growth was holding Faith that we possessed these Gifts and could figure out how to use them. We took it from an Inspiration to an Intention by Choosing to reach for it and to draw upon our own Consciousness to See it.
Serpent/CHICCHAN brings a gift that is worthy of our effort… the “lightning in the blood” that ignites all our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. CHICCHAN offers the “feeling” of Spirit in the body through our blood. The snake is highly attuned to vibration. It’s means of survival depends on it’s Consciousness of the Vibrations it feels through its closeness to Mother Earth. A snake can shed it’s skin to become something greater than it was before.
Residing in the 11th uinal, our Transformation is held under an Intention of Higher Consciousness. We have been prepared to Know our Meaning and Purpose. CHICCHAN is one and the same as Kulkulkan and Quetzalcóatl the Feathered Serpent, the Light that descends down the steps at the pyramid of Chichen Itza. This is a day of Light Coming Down to see what we can claim. In the Tzolk’in harvest cycle of Becoming, we are in Full Bloom, creating the Seeds of Intention that will be born through the Fruit of our Spirit.
The “Light” of CHICCHAN comes down to “light the fuse” of our Spiritual “Life Force.” The “Spiritual Gift” we are given is a presence we can feel throughout our body. The water that holds the Ether of Spirit flows through our veins and arteries, carrying our most magnetic properties. The “Light” of CHICCHAN can be felt as a charge through the body, raising hair and goosebumps, tingling up our spine, and “Knowing” that can be felt as “gut instinct.”
Down through history, the symbols of the Serpent and Dragon have represented the gift to “See Clearly.”
The “work” of our Spiritual Development isn’t as hard as we make it. Our Covenant with the Creator is not a Promise to be perfect. That’s oath we could never keep. The “Great Work” is an Intention of Being. The Creator always returns more than we give. We are given “extra credit” for a Divine Intention that was chosen by our own Free Will. The Wisest thing we ever do is to join forces with an Almighty Power. The Creator will perfect us. Consciousness is the Offering that establishes our Oneness.
The descent of the Holy Spirit offers the Promise of “Living Water.”
Surrendering our Lives to the Creator’s Intention, we could see how every experience could be transformed into something Divine.
We are always positioned in a Miracle… a Miracle because no matter where we are the Creator’s Light can reach us. Mother Earth tilts to and fro so that every place upon her would Know the Light. The only time we don’t see it is when we’re “turned away.”
The Ascended Masters are our most capable teachers, having shared the same experiences of being Human. The Divine Justice of their Offering is that we carry away Truth we didn’t know before.
The Elders always said, it’s not about whether you will know what to do, but always about Remembering. We can Know Unconditional Love is always found when we turn to Spirit, but Will we Remember? We Know that we are Blessed by Spiritual Experiences when we turn our Consciousness to them. But, Will We Remember? A world of Blessings is laid out before us in every direction. Will We Remember to See It?
I received an invitation to my 50th high school reunion. It prompted me to think about my life and consider what I’ve learned from the whole. The most important thing was Forgiveness. My Highest Spiritual Experiences have been moments of Forgiveness. Our Spiritual Gifts are more than worthy of the effort.
Through Forgiveness we can move on to see beyond what was separating us from our own Happiness. Letting go of my own resentment I saw how others were suffering more than me. I could clearly see all my blessings.
Forgiveness is a fundamental message of every path of Spiritual Development In Christ’s darkest hour he spoke the words of Forgiveness. A Life that began with a Spark of the Creator fulfilled it’s Divine Purpose through an ending in Forgiveness.
As we consider what we can claim, the proof will be found in our measure of Forgiveness. When we surrender to Forgiveness we see we are no less guilty. We all leave a trail of unconscious harm behind us. There are likely many who will never receive an apology.
Through Forgiveness we allow one another to move forward. We set them free from the darkness our resentment can impose. Forgiveness is the “state of being” we must reside in to be Conscious of our Spiritual Gifts.
When I imagine what the Creator meant for the world to be, it’s a world where eyes meet each other in a smile. Our pastime would be Sitting in the Wind, taking in the Beauty of Mother Earth. We’d be so exited by our Inspiration that we’d run off to find a way to express it. Then we’d all come back together to share our own Creations and be amazed at how different they all were. We’d feel special that ours was different too. Our lives would become a celebration of differences, how a single thought shared by the Creator could create an unlimited number of different things. We would be satisfied. We wouldn’t “need” anymore. I claim the Creation is still being Finished by the Creator through us.
To all my relations, may Forgiveness be the Spark of Intention we place at the center of our New Seed. May we give thanks for the Higher Spiritual Understanding that was planned by the Creator. May we claim our Spiritual Gifts ignited by Forgiveness. May we send our own Wave of Forgiveness around the planet on a path that follows the Sun.

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. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX. NOTE: I’m having a terrible time keeping an accurate count. I lost two days somewhere. (For reference, this 21-day count began on 12 Jaguar/IX.)
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 12
I’m grateful for the Spiritual Gift of our Imagination that helps us create the Dream of something better. I’m grateful that in the ways of Spirit we’re not discouraged, but encouraged to live in our Dreams.

10 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI VK)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI VK: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.
