10 Night / AKBAL – Walking as a Shape-Shifter: Day 10 of 13


10 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. Manifestation is both a blessing and a responsibility. To manifest Creation we must claim a new Truth for our Self. On a path of Spiritual Development the goal is to Believe in the Power of Spirit. There’s evidence in the world that Humans possess Gifts of Spirit. We could reason that we have them too. Though, we wouldn’t claim them until we see them in our Self. Tone 10 is a manifestation of Human’s proof of Spirit.

Night/AKBAL is the Day Sign of Spirit that speaks to us in our Dreams. AKBAL is the Light of Spirit that shines in the darkness. AKBAL knows the darkness and all things Unseen, said to connect the faculties of Intellect and Intuition. Night/AKBAL can present a Spiritual Experience, that by Human reason we could see as the evidence of a Power we Hold in Spirit.

The glyph illustrates the Night with curtains drawn back to reveal the Light that always shines. The face of the monkey appears to be super-imposed into the glyph with its eyes closed. AKBAL is a Light that shines that Human eyes can’t see, though the memory of the Truth is held in our subconscious thoughts. AKBAL can help us see the Light within our Self that knows Truth of our Spirit.

AKBAL is the Dreamer who believes in the Dream. Residing in the West, the direction of our unknown experience, and representing the Element of Water and our emotions. AKBAL is often a dreamy kind of day that isn’t grounded in the reality. AKBAL energy is a little disorienting. Drawing thoughts from our subconscious mind, AKBAL can remind us of our long-lost dreams.

AKBAL can heal the suffering of a lost dream that manifested our illusion of powerlessness. We may have a different dream today, but the loss is waiting to be released. AKBAL can help us Claim the Truth of our Connection to the Divine by the Truth of the message we hear.

AKBAL is a Day Sign of Spiritual Inspiration and Incoming Light. We are made capable to see the True condition of our heart. Unexpected feelings can rise to the surface with AKBAL to bring a Healing of our Emotions. This is a day to be gentle with ourselves and others. We will be Spiritually Cared for by a Divine Agency. It’s safe to “feel our feelings” and share them in Consciousness with the Creator.

We are 7 days away from a Global Burner Day, 4 Dog/OC in the trecena of 1 Deer/MANIK. Burner Days marked the Ceremonial Fires performed by the Mayan priest to bring the community back together into right relationship. The first 2 trecenas of the Tzolk’in can be a time of “hunkering within.” There is said to be an accumulation of residual energy that builds the closer we get to this Ceremony that marks a burn-off of excess energy. We’re in the days leading up to this, which can generate the feeling of heaviness, or not quite yourself. (Mark April 24, 2018 on your calendar. 4 Dog/OC will offer a shift of energy to Stabilize our Experience through Unconditional Love.)

AKBAL can make real the Truth of our Communion with Divine Spirits.  ALL our Spiritual Gifts are a Communion with the One Omnipotent Consciousness.

The Jaguar’s purpose is a manifestation of Divine Discernment. The Meaning and Purpose of all our Gifts is to Know the Truth. With Truth our Choices will be led in the right direction. If you Know what Truth feels like, the “Knowing” that doesn’t need Human evidence, you can claim the Truth of your own Spiritual Gifts.

The Cherokee Day Sign the Hearth represents the Sacred Fires that burn through the night. This is the gathering place of the Elders and Ascended Ones. They tend the fires of Truth in the darkness. They fan the Spark of Faith into the Fire of Belief in our own Light of Truth.

The first experiences of Spirit are subtle. Synchronicity can be passed off as coincidence. Voices in our head can be discerned as our own thoughts. We are unconscious of gifts that relate to a “common” experience. The Elders say our thoughts are not necessarily all our own. They stress the importance of the Discernment of Spirit.

We were told to question all our thoughts and feelings to discern their source. Thoughts hold the electrical charge of Ether that exists everywhere. We can unconsciously pick up on the thoughts of others. When we know who it is before we answer the phone, we’ve likely picked up the thoughts of the person who made the call.

We can pick up our negative thoughts straight from the Ether. We were told that when we felt a “presence of thoughts” that it is Worthy and Right to ask, “Who are you and what do you want?” We put forth the Spiritual Intention that only Divine Spirits are accepted. If we discern no answer, we can call on our Guardian Angels, Ascended Masters, and Divine Spirits to escort them away with our Blessing for the experience.

On Tone 10 of Manifestation, we are given a Spiritual Experience we can claim as True. A very small Truth has the power to change everything.

To all my relations, may we claim our Spiritual Gift of Knowing the Truth. May we see beyond the vision of our Ego so that we can recognize Spirit even in a small experience. May we not overlook the Gift just because it seems like a “common” experience of everyday. May we lose our fear of the Unknown, opening our Heart and Bearing our Soul, holding Faith that Spirit will always share the Right Answer. May we Dream of our Future and imagine how our Lives would be Transformed by the Gift of Always Knowing the Truth. May we remember to Discern the Source of our Inspiration as Divine by the Truth that leaves no questions, and the Knowing of Unconditional Love.

in lak’ech, i am another you

10 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, 1 Hearth/O’YA)

Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, or share your local energy report.

  1. The 24th is the 4th anniversary of my best friends death… a suicide. I was already anticipating an emotional day for myself that day. Do you have any advice for a day like that, by any chance?


    • I’m so sorry to hear that. Losing friends is hard enough. You could light a candle as a little altar, and burn for a time that feels appropriate. When you see it burning you can remember to turn your thoughts to the blessing they were, and send your forgiveness for the result of their suffering. I share your sadness. in lak’ech, Debra

      • I really love that idea, thank you. He was 3 Wind so I kind of want to set it somewhere the wind could blow it out and just leave it there. The idea makes me happy. Which is all I think he’d really want from me at this point, to see me happy. The void he left helps me see what is important more clearly, keeps me from taking things for granted. But I’d still just rather have him back.

        Thank you again for the idea and the kind words. I’m so grateful you’re out there, I always look forward to reading what you’ll say next.
