MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Night/AKBAL is the Light that Shines in the darkness of the unknown. Tone 3 motivates us to take action on the Dream we imagined. As we take a first material step toward our Dream we establish a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B.” A Dream inspired from the Spiritual Plane, emerges into the Physical Plane of existence by our first Movement of Intention.
Movement brings Life to a Dream that lies in our future. Our first Movement of Intention creates a Vibration among the atoms that exist in a world of physicality. Through Intention, we set the Tone and Frequency of our Vibration. The Vibration of a Divine Inspiration, sets a Tone and Frequency of the Passion we bring to it. We initiate a Vibration of Love when we follow the Dream our Heart Desires.
MASTER NUMBER 33: Tone 3 and AKBAL’s Position 3 together represent the Master Number 33. Number 3 is the number of a Divine Trinity, a collaboration of Human, the Human Spirit, and the Divine Spirit of the Creator. Appearing twice, the Power of a Divine Trinity is doubled and amplified.
Number 3 relates to the attributes of expansion and the principles of increase, spontaneity, broad-minded thinking, encouragement, assistance, talent and skills, self-expression and communication, manifesting and manifestation. Number 3 also resonates with the energies of the Ascended Masters, and indicates that the Ascended Masters are around you, assisting when asked. The Ascended Masters help you to focus on the Divine spark within yourself and others, and assist with manifesting your desires. Number 33 is a symbol of Divine Guidance. All you need to do is ask, as the Ascended Masters are waiting to answer your prayers. [Sacred Scribes]
Our Desires are Inspired by the Divine Creator who knows us as well as a Mother Knows her newborn child. The Creator knows what we Love. Love is the Light that will Shine the Way Home. Following our own Dream, our Intention will Vibrate within a frequency of the Creator’s Love for us. We can be One in thoughts of Love with the Creator, powerful enough to lift us from the gravity of the world. We were Divinely Inspired to follow a Dream, so the experience of Love would draws us closer together.
Night/AKBAL is a day that offers the Gift of Believing that our Dreams can come true. AKBAL is the Day Sign that speaks to us in our Dreams. AKBAL generates a Light we can see in the Darkness… the Light that will lead us to our destination.
AKBAL is often a “Dreamy” day. We find ourselves in the Ether between Heaven and Earth. We may find thoughts trailing off from our daily reality. This is a day to Listen for the Voice of the Divine – a Voice that calls us to the Dream. AKBAL resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Walk, and the emotions of the experience. AKBAL can speak to us through a Language of the Heart. This is a day to honor our Heart, the place where Spirit speaks as our feelings. Today we are connected to all the ways we are touched by the Creator’s Hand.
The AKBAL glyph illustrates the darkness, and the veil drawn aside to reveal the Light that is shining there. The Cherokee Hearth is the Sacred Fire that burns through the night, the place where Divine Spirits gather to pray on our behalf, and fan the flames of our Dream. They generate the Light we can focus on to find our direction, a Light we can see even in the darkness of our doubt. We learned from the Eagle, that we can grasp our Dream by maintaining our focus on the desired destination. Eagle doesn’t plot the way step by step, but relies on Intuition. (Both Day Signs relate to the West of our Experience.)
AKBAL sees in the Dark, said to connect the faculties of our Intellect and Intuition. It puts our “reasoning skills” to work in a Discernment of Spirit. AKBAL knows what is Unseen, including our unconscious thoughts and fears. AKBAL touches our heart as it brings them into the Light. Our Fears can be healed in Knowing that the Creator Dreams for us, what we Dream for our Self. The Creator Knows that by design, a Shared Dream will draw us together. By AKBAL’s Light, We will Know our Dream is empowered to come True by Divine Intervention.
Our Sacred Intentions are the guiding light of Creation. While other living things create by instinct, Human’s power of creation must be led by a Choice. Our power to create lies in an application of Free Will. Human is always creating. Distracted from our Conscious Thoughts, we wander from one creation to the next, manifesting only the needs of the moment. It’s no wonder we feel like we’re stuck in one place, going nowhere in our state of unconsciousness. Without an Intention, we’re only spinning our wheels.
Intention is the Spirit’s Force offering the Traction for forward Movement. When we hold a Sacred Intention we set a course for movement through time. We are led forward in our Transformation of Consciousness when we focus on an intention that we would manifest in the future.
We were Inspired by the Creator to see something we Love. Our Choice to follow it, is the Spark of Divine Consciousness that will be fanned into the Flames that burn at the Hearth, a Light Bright Enough to Follow even in the dark. AKBAL draws us into the Unknown as the Place of All Possibility, helping us to overcome our own Fear of the Dark. The fears that may touch our heart are resolved by a single point of Light we can follow.
Night/AKBAL, the Hearth, is a symbol of the Orion nebula. Nebula’s are the places where stars are born.
“Believed to be the cosmic fire of creation by the Maya of Mesoamerica, M42 blazes brightly in the constellation Orion. Popularly called the Orion Nebula, this stellar nursery has been known to many different cultures throughout human history. The nebula is only 1,500 light-years away, making it the closest large star-forming region to Earth and giving it a relatively bright apparent magnitude of 4. Because of its brightness and prominent location just below Orion’s belt, M42 can be spotted with the naked eye.” [NASA]
AKBAL is the place in the darkness where Dreams are born. My own experiences with AKBAL have been days that presented the darkness of my own weakness – days when I discerned failures of the past as the fault of my own lower choices. In the Humility of Brokenness, a Divine Spirit can see the true condition of our Heart. A Divine Creator knows exactly what to say to sweep our suffering away. Opening my heart as a prayer to the Creator, I’ve received the Answers of Unconditional Love that wiped away my tears. Today we can Know the Creator is at hand, a Creator that knows what the Dream means to us. We can Know what our Dream means to the Creator, as an Intention that will birth a new Light of Love.
THE WAYEB: Day 1 of 5 – Today begins the last month of the Haab calendar, the last month of 5 days. These are described as “Nameless Days,” not guided by an archetype or nuhaul. The Wayeb calls for “Blind Faith.” Faith in a Dream we can hardly imagine will generate a Brighter Light. These were days the Maya stayed close to home, resolving loose ends. They are days when people help one another get ready for the future.
This is a day when we can begin to work from home, fanning the flames of our Dreams. We can clean our “home” like we’re expecting company, clearing dust that has settled in the corners and under the bed. On AKBAL we might first start in the bedroom, the Nursery of our own Dreams. We might place a small altar that could be the last thing we see at Night, and the first thing we see in the morning – a Light to remind us that a Dream is in Progress. We can create a Light by drawing our Consciousness back to the Truth that our Dream was given its own Life as a Vibration… a Vibration that follows its own Course from Point A to Point B.
The Intention we Choose to bring to Life will guide our steps. Each step we take in that direction, will generate the Light for the next step to follow. Deep within our subconscious mind, we Already Know the way. Intention is the Consciousness that will bring what we already Know to Light.
The challenge for this phase of our Spiritual Growth (Tones 1-6) won’t be “not knowing what to do.” Our only limitation is overcoming the Fear of an Illusion of “not knowing.” Our Power will be found in Believing that taking the next step will guide the next.
Over our lifetime, we will have many Dreams. It doesn’t matter which one we follow, even if it takes us in a totally different direction in the physical world. ANY Dream will serve the purpose of leading us to an experience of Love. We don’t have to question if we’ve “chosen the right dream.” Like children, and the Creator Day Sign, the Monkey, Life on Mother Earth is ours to Explore. The only qualification our Dream needs to hold is the Love we would experience in its Creation. AKBAL helps us to see that No Dream is beyond our capability, as long as we Love it.
To all my relations, May we draw close to our place of Authority in the Home of our Heart. May we prepare for a Dream that will come true. May we clear from our physical surroundings the reminders of an old way of living – an old life, where we had to See to Believe. May we Honor our Dream by Consciously Choosing the thoughts we hold as we prepare to Dream, and as we wake up to each new day. May we find our Own Way for the Dream to always be on our mind as the Light of Creative Consciousness. As we identify the residual thoughts of an old life, may we imagine sweeping them away. As we focus on the Dream, may we imagine the Hearth where every Spark of our Consciousness will be fanned to a flame, a brighter Light to follow. May the Wayeb serve as a Divine Sign that we are Prepared to make a climb of Spiritual Growth by the Divinity of our Intention. May our Gift to Humanity be a Leap of Faith in the dark, so that the Dream we Create will be attributed to a Light from Above, an Eternal Light that shines for the Whole. May we listen for, take note of, and Acknowledge the Voice of Spirit that speaks in our Dreams. May our first movement be the Spoken words to ASK the Creator for the Dream. In an act of Blind Faith, may we look heavenward to Orion’s Belt, to imagine our Dream among the Lights being born there by the Spark of an Intention, a Choice we made to follow a Divine Inspiration… an Inspiration that was shared because it was Already Known to be something we would Love.

3 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)
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.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void. a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night, much as the Owl described above. Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension. Totem-OWL,Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, see through the masks of deception, trickery. High ability of discernment. Portals open to other worlds and dimensions for your learning and spiritual growth. Magical abilities are possible.
