MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Next 13 days…
Eagle/MEN is the Intermediary who can lift us up to the Heavenly Realm. The Eagle will take us on a Flight to inspire our Highest Aspirations. Eagle is a symbol of our Highest Hopes.
The success of the Eagle is attributed to its ability to see into the future. The Eagle is capable of intuitive discernment “on the fly.” Eagle can see its next meal from over a mile away. Eagle doesn’t catch its prey by hovering around for the right opportunity. It sets its Sight from far away, sets the Intention, and simply takes off.
Eagle can inspire us about our way of navigation through the realm of Spirit. We are free to soar when we let go and ride the Divine Winds of Creation.
The Eagle/MEN trecena will offer a Divine Perspective by raising us to the Heavenly Realm. We are lifted up on the shoulders of MEN so we can see something for our Self, something we couldn’t see from the ground. As a Day Sign of the West, Eagle/MEN can influence our experience of living and elevate our Intuitive Sense of Direction.
Eagle/MEN will prepare us for the last trecena of the Tzolk’in round, led by Star/LAMAT and ascending on 13 Sun/AHAU. Eagle will guide a “fledgling” flight of Spirit. When we fly with Sun/AHAU we will know our Future and our Divine Destiny as if we had already been there.
PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether – Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions. There are two Portals in the Eagle/MEN trecena. On 5 Storm/CAUAC a Portal will magnify a Spiritual Renewal and Regeneration. And on 7 Crocodile/IMIX, we will stand in the balance, where we can see the Whole of our Transformation for the Highest Ascension of the Tzolk’in round.
PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance
- 6 Sun/AHAU – will offer a personal revelation of our own rhythm and momentum of spiritual movement.
- 7 Crocodile/IMIX – will inspire us to Imagine our Highest Dreams.
- 8 Wind/IK – the Creator will Breathe Life into our Spirit through a Divine Intervention.
- 9 Night/AKBAL – empowers a Transformation, fulfilling the Creator’s Dream for us to Know our Self as the Light in the Darkness.
13th UINAL: Ascension
We enter the Ascension cycle of the Tzolk’in on 7 Crocodile/IMIX. Our Ascension is our Highest Realization of our Meaning and Purpose. We begin at the top of the pyramid where we can reflect on the full 360 degree view. Eagle will empower our long-distance vision. Our Ascension from the Tzolk’in round will bring our future clearly into view. 13 Sun/AHAU will shine its Light on a Revelation of Power and Purpose.
The Eagle/MEN trecena will prepare us for our Highest Flight. As a Day Sign of “Light,” Eagle marks a cycle of Incoming Inspiration. The Eagle encourages our Highest Dreams and Aspirations to set the course of an Ascension from the 260-days of the Tzolk’in round.
An Ascension from the trecena of Wind/IK presented the realities of living from the Realm of Spirit. My new Wisdom was an accounting of time. The latest worldly crisis drew me back into the news cycle. The more I saw, the more I needed to see. I’d succumbed to my own Eagle/MEN temptation to fly away. I wanted to skip right over this part of life’s experience because the world seemed too hard. I found myself stuck, waiting, waiting, waiting, for the Truth that would set us all free… unconsciously looking to the world for Divine Justice.
Wind/IK, holding the Element of Air, relates to the faculties of the mind. The Wind trecena raised my Consciousness to see what a Precious Gift our mind really is. Billions are invested to capture our mind’s attention, occupying every free thought, and tracking trends of thought in real time. Higher Consciousness is the Transformation of taking back the power of our own mind.
The Creator made a way to live by Spirit through the Gift of Intention. Our Conscious Intention is the Spiritual means of directing our Own Life. It stands to reason that aiming our thoughts in a direction would return exponentially better results that being unconsciously pulled from all directions. We’ve yet to see what we could accomplish with the unused 90% of our brain’s power.
Our Consciousness is a Miracle for Transformation. No matter our Human limitations, we can be transformed by an Intention of Spirit. Through an Intention to place our life in God’s hands, even the impossible is possible. Through Consciousness we can see what we are doing. Our personal truths are necessary to overcome the weakest aspects of our Human Nature.
We’re given an opportunity through the Eagle/MEN trecena to rise above our earth-bound view. We will imagine what life would look like if there were only open sky ahead. There would be no hills, valleys or pyramid stairs. We’d fly directly wherever we wanted to go. We would see what we wanted from a mile off, and simply take off to go get it. The Creator makes the way for our Dreams to come true so our reward will be Divine Justice. Our future holds more Abundance than any offering we can give.
Eagle can help us see the possibilities when we are wholly invested in our Dream. We might face Eagle’s temptation to fly away. Reaching for our Highest Hopes will push the limits of our Inner Strength. Eagle gives us the reason to keep going and the Intuitive Sense that we will arrive there. These are the thoughts we can choose to direct a Flight of Higher Vision.
We’ll find how much easier things appear from above. The Creator didn’t create an obstacle course for the fulfillment of our Highest Meaning and Purpose. Even Humans clear the path when they teach a child to walk. Eagle will guide a direct course from Point A to Point B.
“A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit.”
Wind/IK taught us that Creation is not inspired by the design, but by its Meaning and Purpose. To manifest creation we have to know our own reason “why.”
The 12th and 13th uinals represent a crashing wave of Consciousness. We are within the chaos of major change that is already on course. There are many influences competing for our attention. We are near the threshold of our Highest Accomplishment. To Eagle, the destination is the only navigation point that matters. Eagle can show us our reason “why” is the future.
Tone 1 begins the trecena at our lowest energy level. We are guided to take things slow on Tone 1 and 2. These are days I plan menial tasks that don’t require any concentration. This was a strategy I adopted when I found than no matter how hard I tried, my best results are never accomplished on Tone 1 and 2. We can approach both of these days as an important orientation. Eagle can Lift our Spirits and offer New Hope for our Highest Aspirations.
To all my relations, may we surrender our Authority to our Higher Self. May we prepare ourselves to turn away from the illusions of limitation. May we envision our own flight in the company of Divine Spirits, depending on our Intuition to know the way. May we see and grasp an opportunity of Spirit that is Divinely Timed for this Meaning and Purpose, and make a new commitment to spend our spare time creating and dreaming. May we invest Faith in our Highest Hopes and acknowledge the Miracle of our Consciousness to make it so.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Eagle/MEN trecena.
1 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
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.
Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle persons as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.
Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation.Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions,cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance. Totem-Eagle. Powerful energy for success in worldly affairs, due to far seeing vision. Ability to create masses of money and abundance through an intellectual type of profession. Eagle asks for what he desires and manifests it. Professor, lawyer, teacher, leader.
