MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
My heart breaks for all families who have lost their children to gun violence. A teenage boy from the Florida shooting was asked in an interview what he thought the solution to be. He said, “We have to be kind to each other every day, because we never know what someone else might be going through.” He held the Wisdom of Forgiveness.
He reflected our Divine Nature. It only takes one person to affect many. One person can help us see the Divinity in the Whole. Every Life is worth saving.
I believe in the Eternal Light of our Spirit. I pray their Lights continue to shine through a Higher Purpose.
with love, Debra
The Next 13 days…
The MULUC trecena called us to Live our Lives from the realm of Spirit. We were called make a Human sacrifice, to die to our life in the world and be reborn in Spirit. Under the direction of Wind/IK, we will apply this Intention to acquire the Wisdom of Experience.
Under the Wind/IK trecena we will bear the Labor of being Reborn. This is our Divine Destiny. The Creator made it easy to navigate in the realm of Spirit. We have every Spiritual Gift we Need.
GLOBAL BURNER DAY: 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN
The Global Burner Day marks a shift of energy. It’s common to experience some “overload” on days building up to a Global Burner. You may find yourself over-stimulated, yet exhausted at the same time. Relationships may be affected. Burner Days were observed by the Maya with Sacred Fire Ceremony for the purpose of restoring Harmony to the Community. Burner days accomplish a burn-off of residual energy that builds up through each season of the Tzolk’in. See more on the 13-day Trecena Guide.
12th UINAL: We Ascended into the 12th Uinal of Understanding on 13 Crocodile/IMIX. We were Transformed to the Higher Consciousness that in the realm of Spirit, our “reality” is discerned through our Imagination. The Understanding we seek will be found in paying attention to our “wild ideas,” and thoughts that come out of nowhere. Our first Manifestation in this uinal is guided by 10 Monkey/CHUEN, the Creator who has fun without taking life in the world so seriously.We might learn by experience how much more adventurous and fun it is to Live in Spirit. We might also learn to accept that others may think we are crazy. IMIX already taught us it’s not “crazy.” It’s “genius!”
PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether – Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions. 1 Wind/IK is the only portal day in this trecena, though as the presiding Day Sign for this 13-day cycle, the Force of Wind will be magnified. Today, the Divine Inspiration from our Spiritual Gifts will be magnified.
The Haab New Year: On February 20, 2018, 6 Deer/MANIK moves into position as the Year Bearer. The planetary cycle reflects that the world around us will call for us to establish a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement of providing a Divine Service to one another. We may find greater need to turn to each other in the coming year. Deer/MANIK, as the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, indicates the Power of our Authority. This shift is conceived by the Galactic Week of 1 Wind/IK. We can expect the Winds of Change, and the Power of the Wind at our back.
PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance
- 6 Deer/MANIK- will guide a flow of movement as a Divine Agent.
- 7 Star/LAMAT – will balance the Above and the Below. LAMAT, the sign of “pure luck” will multiply the Light of our Spiritual Effort to Abundance.
- 8 Offering/MULUC – the Holy Day of “pure spirit” will transform us through Divine Justice, returning the Salvation that is earned by Offering to Live in Spirit.
- 9 Dog/OC – uses the Peak Energy of Transformation to change us through a Deeper Understanding of Unconditional Love.
1 Wind/IK, Kin 222: Number 222 is made up of the attributes of and energies of number 2 appearing tripled, making number 222 a very powerful vibration. Number 222 carries the attributes of the numbers 2 and 22, the Master Builder Number that resonates with ancient wisdom, vision, idealism and transformation. Number 2 lends its influences of faith and trust, encouragement, attainment and success, adaptability, diplomacy and co-operation, duality, service and duty, balance and harmony, selflessness, faith and trust and your Divine life purpose and soul mission. Number 222 has to do with balance, manifesting miracles and new auspicious and timely opportunities. Angel Number 222 encourages you to take a balanced, harmonious and peaceful stance in all areas of your life. The message is to keep the faith and stand strong in your personal truths. Angel Number 222 tells you that everything will turn out for the best in the long-term. Do not put your energies into negativity – be aware that all is being working out by spirit for the highest good of all involved. [Sacred Scribes]
Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit. IK has the power to change the landscape of our lives and to heal our Spirit. This is a day to pray for the healing and the strength to carry out our Divine Purpose. We’ve been raised in Spirit through this Tzolk’in round to accomplish a Higher Purpose. We were given Higher Consciousness of our Spiritual Gifts, because we need to use them.
The 12th Uinal is led by the God of the Morning Star which reigns before Dawn (Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli). This is a Human Mission of Spirit that precedes the 13th Uinal of Ascension that is led by Supreme God of Creation.
The glyph illustrates the portals carved in stone to magnify the sound of the wind and to observe the stars. The “T” shape is a symbol of the Tree of Life, that provides the oxygen in the air for Life on Earth. The Element of Air is our common connection to one another and to the Creator who spoke the Creation.
The Element of Air relates to the power of the mind and communication. Wind disperses the seeds of our Intentions. Residing in the North, IK holds the direction of Wisdom – the Wisdom of the Ascended Masters, and the Wisdom of our own experience.
We’re prepared for a Holy Purpose to carry an Intention we made in Spirit into the world of physicality. Through the Breath of Life and Spirit, we’re called to breath new life into the world. Our seeds won’t be carried by a gentle breeze but by a mighty Wind.
We can’t do it for our Self. We have to do it for each other.
6 Deer/MANIK that will guide us through the next 365-day Haab year, defines this as a year of building momentum to serve one another. The Intention of 6 is an application of Wisdom behind a Peak Effort of Growth. This is the threshold effort that can bring us into balance. 6 holds the Intention to put all our Spiritual Gifts into practice, to use them as second-nature. They will serve as the Wind at our back.
The first few days of this trecena may present a challenge through the dissemination of an unknown Truth. We begin at the bottom of a pyramid looking at all the stairs we have to climb. Hold Faith in your Spiritual Gifts. They hold the Power to carry us through.
This is a time for Direct Communication with the Creator. Our Spiritual Gifts were meant to offer this connection that we can turn to for proof of a Higher Power. It’s time to suit up in our Spiritual Armor. We can make it through, remembering we are the Beloved, remembering we are the first born of an Almighty Power, given a Divine Inheritance before we were born. We are called to believe in the Unseen Truth of an All-Powerful Creator.
Tone 1 is a day of incoming inspiration. The Sacred Breath is our source of Life in Spirit. Sometimes we forget to breath, especially when we are under stress or turmoil. As we go through this trecena, we are guided to use the Sacred Breath. With each breath we can draw the Life of Spirit. We can direct it to the places in our body where we feel pain or anxiety – the fear of change. With each breath we draw we can remember the Spoken words of creation that still linger in the air, that promised a destiny of Harmony and Equity. We can hold Faith in the Wind that is moved by the Voice of Divinity.
From a Human perspective, we may face times when we think we’re clinging to thin air. Though, our Greatest Leap of Faith requires exactly that – to believe in what we can’t see.
The wind is capable to sweep negativity and mental anxiety from our lives. Applying the archetype of Wind/IK as the role model we are given, we have the power to sweep negativity and anxiety away for others disseminating words of Faith and Forgiveness.Today we initiate ourselves into our Greatest Service to Humanity. We can “take a deep breath” before we dive in. As we draw the Sacred Breath, we can remember the Power of Life it holds. We can remember Wind as the Spiritual Gift that shares the touch of the Creator. We can crystallize in our Imagination the Powerful Wind that comes to make things right. We can remember how hurricanes drew people together, saving one another without reasoning of race, color, or creed. Wind helped us see the Divine Spirit of Human.
We can look to our Future for Inner Strength. We will ascend on 13 Jaguar/IX, holding the Power of Earth Magic. A Mission to Glorify the Power of the Creator will end in an Ascension of our Gratitude.
The Cherokee Whirlwind illustrates the double-helix that carries the smoke of our prayers to the Creator. This is a time to exist in the exist in the center, the eye of the storm where we are Home in the place of our Authority. Here we are safe from a world spinning around us and can see all directions clearly.
The is a Portal Day when our Spiritual Gifts are Magnified. We can remember all the Spiritual Gifts we hold by turning our Consciousness to Spirit.
To all my relations, may we suit up for our most important mission. May we dress our altar in White to remember we are Unblemished in the eyes of the Creator, and that every effort to Breath a New Life into the world is an achievement worthy of a crown. May we look at thin air to recognize the Creator exists in the unseen, invisible but not beyond feeling its presence. May we take an Inventory of our Spiritual Gifts so we can see them all laid out before us. May we hold Faith in the Power of Forgiveness, and in our own Power to Offer it. May we Offer our Self to the Wind that created us, and the Wind that will perfect us. When we feel we are clinging to thin air, may we remember the Power of the Wind in Motion that is beyond our Human Power to control it. May we serve as the Morning Star that shines its Light to Herald a New Dawning under the Authority of the Supreme Creator.

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Wind/IK trecena.
1 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
Wind/IK: Breath of Spirit, breath of life. Winds embody the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. Dreamers and planners with powerful imaginations, Wind persons make great orators and they spread the word of spiritual inspiration as it is carried by the wind. Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change. As the wind, these persons are extremely changeable and adaptable. They may appear inconsistent or fickle to others. Wind can be destructive to self and others by putting on airs. When Winds strut and boast, expanding on facts and accomplishments, they are building the dark clouds of trouble that may become hurricanes.
Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA: Whirlwind’s symbol is a double spiral helix in rising smoke. Wind brings energy for an Inquiring mind, learning and wisdom. In Cherokee, the constellations are represented by 12 birds (dancers), the 13th bird is the Whirlwind, the lead dancer. This reflects the whirling of life. Wind is the breath of the Universe, the channel of communication that carries the Sacred Smoke to the Great Spirit.
