MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 8 begins the phase of Transformation that leads to our next evolution of Consciousness. Wisdom/CIB, who guided the last trecena, returns on Tone 8 to mark the place from which a New Transformation will begin.
Tone 8 represents the number of “pure spirit.” On Tone 8 a Divine Agency steps in to Intervene, like the Light that moves down the steps of the pyramid. 8 is the Peak Tone of Justice, the Creator’s Intention for a Sacred Exchange. As we made a Human Offering of Forgiveness, the Creator returns an Offering of Divine Consciousness.
The glyph represents the mind in a state of Forgiveness and Enlightenment. The brain radiates its Light in all directions. Wisdom/CIB offers Spiritual Communion with the nahauls, the Elders, and the sum of their collective wisdom. This is Holy Day that honors the Ancestors, suitable to receive their Forgiveness, and a day to pray for the souls of our Grandparents. It’s also a day to pray for our own Spiritual Strength, and for the Health and Long Life to achieve it.
Tone 8 holds the Potential for a Spiritual Experience. Tone 8 is a Milestone holding great potential for a Divine Revelation of Truth and Justice.
The 11th uinal’s intention is to offer us a Divine Perspective. When we fly High, we feel the Light from the Creator’s eyes on us. We are fulfilling a Divine Intention for the Creator, so the Creator intended it to be easy.
Wisdom/CIB guides an accomplishment of “Right Relationship.” The Cherokee Owl is a symbol of Wisdom, a mystic ferryman that holds the torch aloft to illuminate the path of Spirit. A Gift of Inner Strength will come through a new Wisdom of Spirit.
Yesterday, Eagle/MEN lifted me up to see my future. It marked a Milestone of Spiritual Experience. I was called to a meeting in Auburn, WA – a 50 mile drive in Seattle traffic, 1 1/2 Hr Drive during the morning commute. I’ve made a few trips and hoped to wrap up the project. Less than a year ago, I was terrified by the drive. I would spend days agonizing the future date, and a sleepless night before. I’ve never had this fear before I moved here. It finally dawned on me to make an Intention that it be healed. My mind was opened to imagine how that could change my life.
Last night, it was no more than a passing thought to set the alarm. I left a little early so I could bring some donuts to the staff. I got lost on a different route to the highway, but got directions easy enough to get on track. Settled in to the hour-long 405 commute I was in a place of perfect peace. I wasn’t worried about anything. I remembered the old knot of gripping fear and how I would have responded to this detour a year ago. I was drawn to tears by my own peace and happiness.
The drive was a blessing for the peace and quiet to think and Be with Mother Earth. I wondered at how so much had changed in less than a year. Since making the Intention, I had a car breakdown that forced me into a newer car that I’d thought would be impossible. I’d driven for over a year with the two right-side windows taped up. (I bless people in cars with taped up windows.) Full recovery from a cataract surgery also changed the landscape. I realize how they were “unseen factors” to me, the Creator Intervened to Co-Create. Without being fully conscious of the step-by-step process, my Intention of fearlessness manifested in Divine Abundance.
It was such a beautiful drive, I left plenty of space ahead of me as my Offering for the morning commute. Each car that took advantage of the space, was a Blessing for me, as a potential Blessing for them. As someone made a desperate two-lane pass through my space to an exit, I knew I’d at least made a difference for them. I remembered how I feel when I find a front row parking spot at the grocery store. I’ve always acknowledged them as a “God Sighting.” Eagle carried me a little higher. What would it be like if I left the parking space open for someone else by Intention. Sooner or later, someone would be bound to have a “God Sighting” that I could make True. I was overcome by the Vision of my future as an Earth Angel. Watching over as I am inspired to do by the Creator. I’ve never felt so One with the Creator. The tears of joy came from such a small thing.
Instead of fearing, I was Dreaming of what could make the trip the best it could possibly be. My whole day was a Sacred Event of Divine Justice. The staff in Auburn was so happy that I brought donuts, you’d think it never happened before. The languished project wrapped up like a major accomplishment. I made the drive home in less than an hour on open road. I was Witness to how the Above was Balanced in the Below.
To all my relations, may we hold our Deepest Gratitude for a Creator who’s Highest Intention was to Bless us All The Same. May we offer our Whole Self to the Creator so we might feel the Oneness that heals our emotions. May we create High Hopes and Aspirations. May we be Conscious to the tap on the shoulder that shares a Divine Idea and follows it through. May we forgive our self when we don’t Remember. (My Human side reappeared shortly after I returned home, over a bad answer received on a customer service call.) We’re Forgiven when we Remember. It doesn’t mean we’ve fallen behind. May we imagine what it might be like to serve as Earth Angels. May we imagine the Big Miracles we could co-create in our future.
in lak’ech, i am another you

8 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.
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 valieant 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’ : 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 authoritive. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.
