MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The energy of Tone 11 helps us to find our place in the world. Dynamic developments are made possible by Divine Inspiration. We can be inspired to see where our Human Power of Creation fits into the Creator’s plan.
Once again, our thoughts are drawn to Mother Earth under the guidance of Earth/CABAN. In the Creator’s Divine Plan, this is where we Belong, our Home, and our Personal Laboratory for everything we would ever want to Know. On Earth we are connected as One to her dynamic Forces of Nature. Her Force of Nature that germinates the Seed to begins its Journey to the Light is One and the Same magic that will also Draw Human to the Light.
She is more than just a location where we can discover our Consciousness. She is the womb of Creation that nourishes us with every beat of her Heart. Mother Earth is a place of Consciousness.
The Medicine Wheel and its 4 directions, represent all the directions that Mother Earth can help us grow. Planted on Earth with a Gift of Consciousness, we would naturally learn the concept of Forgiveness in the fact that we are given a second chance every morning to begin again with a new Light. Earth would draw us together in relationship as we found the journey was easier when we all worked together in Harmony. She would reveal that no matter how dark things look when we exist in the dark, it’s the very place where we would Dream the Dream for tomorrow. And to the North would always lie the promise of New Wisdom from the experience. With every rotation, Human would grow stronger and closer to the Light Above.
Tone 11 holds the Intention of a Resolution… a point of agreement upon which we are resolved to move forward. A Resolution establishes a bond of relationship. Parties to a relationship make clear the Consideration they would offer to one another in an exchange.
Tone 11 is the day the shaman, the Deer, makes the journey to the Highest Altar. Their purpose is to bring what they have manifested in Spirit as an Offering to the Above. They come with an open mind to Know the Mind of God. We have so many Gifts from Mother Earth, today we bring them to the Creator for a Divine Discernment. At the altar we surrender in Humility to the Divine Plan. We come offering Mother Earth, seeking the Divine Answer to why she was Given, what the Gift means, and what we could give back in a Sacred Exchange.
As we take the journey to the Highest Altar, we bring a Gift to Honor Mother Earth. At the Highest Altar we would bring the most beautiful thing we have to give. As we hold it in our hand, we realize what could we possibly give that Mother Earth didn’t already give to us first.
Every Mother Knows the Highest Gift is Love and Appreciation. These are the Human Gifts of Eternal Value. Every Mother does her work behind the scenes. All of her blessings and tears are never fully seen. Motherhood, for the most part, is a thankless job. It’s easy to ask “what’s for dinner” every day, without seeing the sacrifice that goes into the time and labor. But she is patient, she draws her joy from the satisfaction in brings. The Mother represents the one who is always there as the disciplinarian. We resent the hard lessons that were given in the Intention of Love. She is willing to make the sacrifice of Love for our own best interests.
A Mother’s greatest gift is our own Happiness and the Gift of Knowing the job was well done. Above all, she longs to know she will be remembered with Love in spite of the hard lessens we had to learn. She wants to know that when we look back, we’ll remember the good times more than the bad… seeing the whole of the experience as lessons of Love. Our Consciousness of her Love is the only Gift we can bring that was wrought by our own Hand. It’s Her evidence that her Love was seen and will be remembered, and evidence that she succeeded in giving what was needed.
Mother Earth is the Highest Altar of Human… the place where we kneel in Humility, the meeting place that God created for a Sacred Exchange between Heaven and Earth. With each visit we make in Consciousness of her Beauty, we will discover something new she was offering to us behind the scenes. She’s given so much, no one Human could ever discover it all.
Only together, could we Sing a Song of Praise that was worthy. Given the Meaning and Purpose of the Deer, we would gather souls together in a Chorus to her Beauty. Only together could we return a fair exchange, singing her praises without end.
Today is May Day, a day of Gifts and an Uprising of Human. May Day is a day known for its demonstrations in Seattle. The tradition remembers the demonstrations led by Human as early as the 1860’s in protest of workdays that extended beyond 10-16 hours, and on behalf of the thousands of men, women, and children dying needlessly every year in the workplace. Human was forced to invest their lives without any hope of ever rising out of their destitution. Life expectancy was as low as the early twenties in some industries. They succeeded in garnering an 8 hour day in 1880 by their own proclamation, without the consent of their employers. Given the short lifespan, many of those who began the movement never saw the change in their own lifetime. [Industrial Workers of the World]
May we Honor those who were willing to stand in their Truth for the well-being of All who would share the same Dream of time for Happiness on Mother Earth… the time to be healed by her Beauty.
This is a day to offer a Gift of Gratitude for the time we were given to spend with her. We owe a debit of gratitude to Humans who, by sacrificing themselves, extended our experience of her by many lifetimes. May we consider how much of the beauty we would have missed with only 20 years, working day to night as our only means of survival. May we remember the past so we will never let it happen again to our own children.
May we also Honor the Accomplishment, that without any personal power, Human was capable to Create through a Shared-Intention of Love. They had the vision and hope that overcame all odds for the good of Humanity. We can Honor the Consciousness that drew them together in a Dream for the Whole.
Earth/CABAN is a symbol of perpetual Movement. We’re encouraged to keep going, to keep taking one step after another. Mother Earth maintains her balance in Movement. May we lean into Mother Earth’s movement on our wild ride of Life. When we are afraid, may we sing our own Lullabies to the Heartbeat of the Mother.
To all my relations, may we bring our Love to Mother Earth. May we claim her by choice as the Center of our world, Acknowledging that she is always waiting in the background – willing to wait for the Love of our Appreciation. May we see that She was the inspiration for an uprising, a cry to Live in Communion and Happiness. May we see how valuable we are in the investment of our time. May we know that a Mother would raise us up to navigate the hard times and challenges that living would inevitably bring. May we believe she has already given us the Strength we need and the Wisdom to prevail. May we see Mother Earth as the place where we belong, our home as well as the place we long to go on every vacation. May we see the meaning and purpose that benefits the whole in the single intention to draw awareness to her Beauty.

11 Earth Caban (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
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.
Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.
Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement and perpetual motion, Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.
