11 Night / AKBAL – Building an Altar Within: Day 11 of 13


11 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 brings the Intention of Resolution. This is the day the shaman climb to the highest altar for Communion with the Creator. Tone 11 offers a clarity of Consciousness as new pieces of knowledge are woven together to resolve a new understanding.

Night/AKBAL is the Light that shines in the dark. The glyph represents darkness with curtains pulled back to reveal the Light. AKBAL connects our Intellect and Intuition, our Unconscious and our Conscious. AKBAL sees what is Unseen and expresses itself as a Voice that speaks in our Dreams.

AKBAL is the Dreamer that Believes in the Dream. As a Day Sign of the West, and the Element of Water, AKBAL can deeply touch our emotions that relate to our Fear of the Unknown. AKBAL can help us willingly enter the darkness by reminding us, that which has yet to be known exists in the void of unlimited possibility. Darkness holds the potential for the Creation of Light.

The Cherokee Day Sign the Hearth is the Sacred Fire that burns through the Night. This is the gathering place of Divine Spirits who tend the fires of Creation.

Today a Voice can speak to us in our dreams, whether sleeping or awake. AKBAL can be an emotional day. The Voice that has clearly spoken to me on AKBAL was in response to a breakdown of sharing my worst fears with the Creator. By honoring our feelings and sharing them with the Creator we communicate the True Condition of our Heart. Through a language of the Heart, the Creator hears our call and can share the answer that heals our Soul.

Our feelings of self doubt can be healed will help us to resolve our new way forward. Every fear of doubt, every illusion of being unworthy or enough, and our worst fears of the future can be healed when we share them with the Creator. Once we experience it, we won’t forget.

Reed/BEN has shown us the way to bring Light to the Family. AKBAL shows us how this Light can carry us into the future. We can stand on this Truth to reach for our Highest Dreams, as well as to heal our sorrow. AKBAL is the Light that will always shine to show the Way. We can be transformed to perceive the Unknown as an Opportunity instead of something we fear.

The altar that exists on Earth is a reflection of the altar created Above. Our lives are balanced by two worlds. AKBAL helps us to see that what we created Below is manifested Above, and what we create Above is manifested Below.

The Love we create in our own Hearts and Minds will be balanced as a return of Love in the realm of physicality. Loving the birds outside my window has changed me. Filled up with Love, we’ll have plenty to spare. I’ve learned that I can have a meaningful relationship of Love all by myself. There doesn’t have to be a human “object of my affection.” Loving anything makes me happy.

We were led to see the Home and Family that is Always with us in Spirit. We don’t have to climb a mountain, or make a pilgrimage to a place far away to find a Holy Place of Sanctuary. Our Altar is built to exist Everywhere WE ARE.

AKBAL holds the potential for mystical experiences of Love.

To all my relations, may we remember that Mother Earth gives us everything we need to be happy. She is worthy of our Love. She is a dynamic creation that was held in the Consciousness of the Creator. May we open our Hearts to speak the Language of Love and Listen for the Voice that will reply.

in lak’ech, i am another you

11 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)

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.

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 doub 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. 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. AKBAL-Night-Totem-OWL: Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, seeing 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.

One thought on “11 Night / AKBAL – Building an Altar Within: Day 11 of 13

  1. I haven’t had access to the Internet, so hoped posts were on time. I totally missed 11 Night/AKBAL and the “Dark Night” it brought to Light of a new Understanding. Debra
