MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“Dream of what you want, and not what you don’t want.”
Tone 11 holds an Intention of Resolution. Tone 11 holds potential for dynamic change. Through a clarity of Intention and Purpose, we resolve the way we will See Our Self.
On Tone 11, the shaman climbs to the highest altar for communion with the Creator. We open our Self to a Discernment that is Higher than our own to understand our Mission, Purpose and Place in the world.
Monkey/CHUEN is the archetype of a Creator, referred to as the “weaver of time.” The glyph illustrates “time rolled up” on the Monkey’s head. CHUEN is the Master Artist who is capable to weave the experiences of our lives together into a Thing of Beauty. CHUEN guides us to look at the threads of our life to see what we’ve created. CHUEN imparts the power to rearrange the threads of our experience to change our past, present, and future.
The IMIX trecena is raising our Consciousness of Consciousness. A Divine Mother is imparting the inspiration to discover one of the most important truths we need to know. From our Human mind of reason, there is nothing we can do to change what we’ve already done. We see history as something “carved in stone.” CHUEN reminds us that Time was also a gift to Human. We are the only Creation with the Consciousness to go back in time, as well as travel to the future. We can re-experience our “past” and change it, to alter our “present” state of mind, and to create a new “future” in our imagination.
CHUEN is the mystic, the alchemist, and the time traveler who reflects on experience from a subjective frame of mind. The Monkey creates from its imagination. Monkey is capable to create new Truth for itself.
The Monkey offers a release from our emotional attachments. As a Day Sign of the West, CHUEN relates to our experience of life events. CHUEN introduces “magic” into our every-day experience of living, introduced as an activity of play.
CHUEN helps us see the “fun” that was meant to be part of the Human experience. We’re encouraged to not take ourselves so seriously. We can even learn to laugh at our silly “human tricks.” The Monkey approaches life like a curious experiment, taking things apart and putting them back together again just to see how things work. It has no expectations of what it might find… the surprise is part of the entertainment value.
I always think of Monkey days as a return to childhood fantasies and dreams that were once a normal part of our perspective on the world. This was back in the day when we believed in faerie tales, when a magic wand could make everything new.
This morning I woke to thoughts of a Genie and the Magic Lamp. The concept is pretty straight forward. We get to ask for what we want. We can imagine the trouble we’d have if the only thing on our mind was “what we don’t want.” Some stories of the Genie emphasize the dilemma of not clearly stating the request. The Genie returns what we ask for, and fills in the rest of the blanks on its own. For the Genie to fully complete our wish, we have to express it in great detail and make sure it’s clear. After all, the Genie is known to offer only a limited number of wishes.
Monkey helps us to discover this “silly human trick” of making a wish for what we don’t want. Even by reason, it would be a silly thing to do. Yet, caught up in our emotions, that’s exactly what we do. We waste our time, and our wishes. It’s really as simple as that.
CHUEN allows us to travel through time to fix things in the past. All the injustice we’ve experienced is a matter of perception. We can change our minds about our past experience. My childhood regrets were finally healed when I went back to look at the experience from another point of view. The good so far out-weighed the bad, I wondered how I could have discerned the “injustice” of the whole based on so few of the threads of the experience. The memory of “injustice” was “unjust” to the Blessings I received. Though the infractions were no less dark or real, they looked different woven into the whole. Through Consciousness, their Intention of Love was clear to see. I couldn’t see it, even though I Knew it the moment of Truth. There was a great deal of evidence held in the threads.
I’m grateful for the Power of Love, to be an Eternal memory, one we can always Remember when we look for it. Consciousness is Monkey’s Spiritual Tool. Through Consciousness, we can raise the threads to the surface that transform our Darkness to Light.
Master Number 1111: Tone 11 and the Position 11 of Monkey/CHUEN reflect the Master Number 11111. Number 1111 is made up of the powerful influences of the number 1, amplified and magnified by four. Number 1 resonates with the vibrations and attributes of new beginnings and starting afresh, and reminds us that we create our own realities. Many people associate the repeating 1111 with a ‘wake-up call’, a ‘Code of Activation’ and/or an ‘Awakening Code’, or ‘Code of Consciousness’. Number 1111 can signal of an imminent shift of consciousness, as a Spiritual Awakening, or epiphany of some kind. 1111 signifies that an energetic gateway has opened that will rapidly manifest your thoughts into reality. 1111 is a signal to hold positive and optimistic beliefs, thoughts, and mindsets to draw abundance and balance into your life.

11 Monkey/CHUEN connects our Intellect with our Spiritual Gifts, teaching us to employ our “supernatural powers.” With Monkey around, we Become Conscious that Human holds more gifts than a “Super Hero.” We can realize we’ve been walking around with this power all our life, never considering that Love was the “super power” we could claim. We might imagine ourselves as Superman in despair of our limitations, without ever attempting to fly.
From Monkey’s Higher Perspective, what have we got to lose? If we look back at our childhood, we might remember all the magic we believed in the beginning. It was an inherent part of who we were and how we imagined things. We had to be taught that our “magic” was only an illusion. We had to be taught there were things we couldn’t do.
Monkey encourages us to go back to our Childhood Faith, when anything was possible – before we got so “smart” that our lives were defined by proven facts. We can go back to a Divine Experiment, where the outcomes are never the same, but always a new surprise. Like children, we can change the characters and the story when we play make-believe.
Our Dreams and Imaginings were meant to be fun… enough fun, that we’d want to do it. Like kids, it can be our favorite pastime. It makes “monkey sense” that dreaming of what we want is more fun than imagining the next disaster. Monkey could imagine the chaos of change as a big shake-up, where all the pieces that are up in the air will fall back together, better than we could arrange them for our Self.
Monkey calls us to believe that we “have a place” in the world. The world needs Dreamers. The same people who may think we’re crazy, secretly wish we’ve discovered the truth. They’re glad for crazy people like us, so they don’t have to be the crazy ones. LOL
A dear friend and I once discussed the imaginings of one that seemed a little “far out” for us to grasp. We laughed about it when we considered how “far out” we must seem to someone else, and happy we were still able to find some one “stranger” than we were. Someone once said that if you’re weird and have money, you’re considered eccentric. If you’re weird and poor, you’re just seen as “odd.” We can elevate our Self from “odd” to “eccentric” when we realize the value of our dreams.
May we remember how innovation is discovered through play. Our understanding of the universe was advanced by an “eccentric” Einstein, who chased beams of light.
To all my relations, may we resolve to be Free and Eccentric, working our magic as we go. May we see our Place in the world, and our Mission, to be the Dreamers for the Whole. May we resolve to follow the road less traveled, exploring possibilities and Spiritual Gifts we never attempted to use. May we look for the evidence around us, that the Genie delivers what we expect to receive. May we Master the Art of Expression to create a tapestry of the Beauty we want to behold in the Now, down to the smallest thread of the detail. May we know exactly what our wishes would be, how it would feel, and how excited we would be to see them come true. May we play “make-believe” that whatever we imagine can instantly appear. May we Play like we’ve got nothing to lose, and Everything to Gain.

A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 18
I’m grateful that Human was designed with the “super power” to manifest our Dreams by imagining what we want. As super powers go, it’s better than any Super Hero that human has imagined so far.
THE TRECENA OF CROCODILE/IMIX
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Crocodile/IMIX trecena.
11 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)
Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.
Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.
Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoon is full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy. Magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.
