MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 3 is the day of Movement. Through the action of movement or communication, a Dream conceived in our imagination is born into the world.
Night/AKBAL led us to the Void, the place of the Unknown where it’s possible to create anything. Undefined, no limits were placed on what could be. This is a place of the Unseen, yet no less real. Like our world inside the womb, it is a Promise of Life that is yet unknown to the Human within. In the womb we can only imagine a world we hear in muffled tones… as we wonder how we could ever cross the divide into an unseen dimension of being.
We anticipate, yet fear this new world at the same time. The Unknown is our Known. Drifting along in an unconscious state, we have everything we need. Only as the contractions begin, do we feel our freedom is more important. Only when pressed on all sides, do we surrender to an Intention to move into a new world.
Seed/KAN is a symbol of Humanity. They Maya related the Seed of Corn as a representation of all the People, the varied colors of our skin, and the colors that exist within the Human body. Seed holds our two identities, our unique “I Am” in the world, and our Divine “I Am” in Spirit.
Seed/KAN represents the Intention of Life that forms an Identity with a Meaning and Purpose. The two sides of Human are brought into Wholeness by a Spirit of Being, and a Purpose of Movement. In an Intention to live in the realm of Spirit, our Intention is a Spark of Being that will be moved by Divine Spirit.
Human’s Spiritual Gift of Creation is the Power to Reach into the Void and draw forth what we imagine. The Cherokee Day Sign, the Dragon, the ability to “see clearly.” KAN presents the Clear Vision of our Dream.
KAN represents the Spark of the Divine within our own Design, the Creator’s dream for us. Looking deep within our own Spiritual DNA is the Power of Creation, the Power to Create Life. Today we bring to life the creative force within the Seed of our Dream. KAN, also known as the Lizard and the Cherokee Dragon, is the Force of Life, reproduction, sexuality, and creation.
Held within each Seed is the Life Created by the coming together of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine. The Divine Masculine relates to Reason and Will. The Divine Feminine represents the Heart’s response that discerns the Meaning and Purpose. Our Dreams are germinated as a movement for the purpose of a Conscious Intention.
KAN represents the conditions that exist in the Womb of Creation. Ancient teachings define the Mind as electrical energy and the Heart as magnetic energy. Mother Earth has a Heart of solid matter, composed of an iron-nickel alloy and elements of light. The core’s outer mantle is molten and fluid, generating magnetic energy by movement. The magnetic Force of the Earth is United by a Force of Attraction to the Electrical Energy from Above. Earth’s Heart is moved by the Electricity of Lightning. As Above, So Below. Just as Mother Earth’s movements are influenced by Joined Forces with the Above, so can Human be moved by the Mind of God.
“As Above, So Below” is one of the Principles from the Emerald Tablets, among the oldest recorded Spiritual Teachings as the Principles of Hermes. These Divine Principles are defined as the Answers to all the Mysteries of the Universe. Like the Elders say, “The Answer is in the Question.” These Principles don’t give Answers, but Principles of Truth that can be applied to discern one’s own answers (ie. “if this is true, then…).
In the Summation of the writing, the teaching defined the two identities of Human. The Higher and Lower Self were defined as two unique “identities of consciousness.” The Lower self is our “me” – the personality that exists in the world, managing the mundane tasks of living, like what we’ll have for dinner and what we want out of life. Its Power is limited to Human Willpower.
Our Higher Self is an identity of Divine Power, directly connected to the Power of God. Our Higher Self holds the Power to Will the Will of our Lower Self. You can connect with the “presence” of your Higher Self, by “shape-shifting” into the Role of the “Observer of your Lower Self.” Your Highest Consciousness is the Higher Self that sees the thoughts and condition of the Lower Self. Our Divine Identity can “clearly see” the struggle and the Heart’s True Intention. The Authority of our Higher Self is limited by Human’s Free Will. To access our Divine Power, our Lower Self must Offer Our Permission.
This was a breakthrough Truth for me. It meant that all the willpower I lacked to accomplish what I really wanted, could be empowered by Divine Will. All my failed willpower attempts to break bad habits or to create what I really wanted my life to be, what I felt I should be capable of… if this were true, then it might be as easy as a surrender – permission granted to my Higher Self by my Lower Self. It was a milestone of Spiritual Growth to give my Higher Self Permission. I wasn’t sure how it would work, or what I might need to do, but I chose to give permission, having Faith that my Higher Self would know the way. It didn’t seem like a major milestone in the moment, but a tentative first step toward something unknown. It also taught me something about Divine Timing. When you believe that a Higher Power can guide you, you lose the sense of urgency to see the proof. Each new Truth we have to built on makes the next “Leap of Faith” easier to make.
An Almighty Creator, in Communion with our Higher Self, holds the Power to influence and direct our Human Will. Our Greatest Freedom and Power is Grasped as we surrender the Will of our Human Nature. We give the permission that is required to allow ourselves to be moved by the Power of a Divine Intention.
Seed/KAN can help us to see clearly in Spirit. Our Human eyes can only perceive a limited range of light. Though, we Know the Truth that other colors exist. Seed/KAN guides us to believe in something that is Real. Even though for now we can only see it in our Imagination, it is no less Real. KAN Sparks our Faith to Believe in the Life Created by our Dream.
To all my relations, may we turn to our own Truth of a Divine Power… a Truth we chose to believe in by our own Free Will. May our first movement be to Surrender our Hearts and Minds – giving permission for Divine Will to direct our Movement. May our first step be a “Leap of Faith” that a Divine Creator can create the proof we can see on Earth. May we believe in the Force of Spirit as an Unseen Power, just as we believe in gravity, electricity, and magnetic attraction. May we believe in a Higher Power that can influence us by our permission – so that we can be moved by the Mind of God to manifest a Human Expression that we Can See Clearly in the world.

3 Seed/KAN (Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
Seed/KAN: Family, sexual activity and the magic of germination are the characteristics of this sun sign. Natural net workers, Seed people strive to free themselves and others from debt or oppressive patterns of the past. Abundance is gathered by Seeds as if with a cast net. Seed persons are public defenders who work toward uniting community by discovering hidden traps and secret influences of others. To generate true abundance, Seed must learn to appreciate all gifts and lessons received and conduct profound investigations into its self. In the absence of gratefulness and the courage to face oneself, Seed finds itself in less than less fertile environments.
Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA O’STO: Dragon’s symbol is Draco winding between the Little Dipper and Big Dipper. Dragon is the Corn Spirit, symbol of dual personality of Corn Mother and Maiden; fertility and pro-creation from generation to generation. The word dragon means “eye, to look at, to see clearly”. Spirit brings energy of Lawgiver, Justice, vigilance and protective, loyal unto death. Ley lines in China are “dragon lines”, energy is sometimes called “orgone energy”, pyramid power or magnetic force. Pyramids and kivas are collector portals for this energy, knon as vortexes. Dragon energy beats a path everywhere, stirring things up with a big stick in tune with the beat of the drum, heartbeat of the Earth.
