MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 holds the Intention to Stabilize our Faith in a new beginning. Tone 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms. Establishing volume defined by height, length, depth and breadth, Tone 4 offers a sense of orientation. The 4 directions mark the parameters, freedoms, and barriers that will define the road we travel on a new journey of Divine Consciousness. Tone 4 offers a Light of Discernment for the way to move forward on a steady course.
Eagle/MEN is the Day Sign of the Intermediary. The Eagle lifts us up for a Heavenly view to see an unobstructed path from Point A to Point B. From a Divine Perspective, we’ll see no stones on our path. Given a clear view, our eyes can be fixed solely on the destination.
The journey that the Creator guides each of us to make is one that we must discern for our Self. The path of the Intermediary doesn’t define a way for others, but intends to lift them up so they can see for themselves. Our transformation is a personal effort of drawing closer to the Consciousness of God’s Unconditional Love and to claim this Love as our own Truth.
The journey that would define our own Life Mission is a path we choose for our Self. Acknowledging the Light of one another is the Faith we hold that the Creator’s Light shines on every Altar of Love. Our paths can’t be defined by another. We can only agree on the One Light that holds the power to guide us all to the Experience of Unconditional Love.
The Eagle holds the gift of seeing far into the future. Eagle’s success is attributed to its capability to Know the exact destination where it will arrive. The Eagle focuses on what it wants and flies directly there to grasp it. Eagle flies by instinct and intuition. It doesn’t calculate the way by reason. It makes the way by a singleness of purpose, believing it will arrive at the exact Time and Place.
Knowing what’s possible, Eagle encourages us to reach for our Highest Aspirations. “Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit.” Eagle can seed the Faith that we will reach our destination. The Cherokee regarded Eagle as a symbol of Mars and the Warrior Spirit. Holding the Highest Hopes, Eagles were the protectors, the Braves of a society of Spiritual Warriors. The Eagle knows to ask for what it wants to manifest it.
On our journey that holds an Intention of Living in Harmony with the Whole, we can be led by a Higher Vision. The Creator desires to fulfill our Highest Hopes, and longs to fulfill the Promise of our Communion. The Creator would have us know that our prayers for Unconditional Love, Harmony, and the Happiness of the Whole, are the very prayers that would always be answered. In a choice to follow a path that is Divinely Guided, our Faith will be Transformed into Belief.
Eagle/MAN can share its Faith that we can accomplish our Dream. We won’t have to question the way, when we hold Choose to Hold Faith that every step is Divinely Guided. Today, Eagle shares this Faith with us. There IS a Light at the end of our destination. We are led by a Creator that never made a promise that wasn’t kept. The journey we are on is the very path we were created to follow. We were equipped with every Spiritual Gift we need to Know we are moving at the perfect speed in exactly the right direction.
The Eagle Grasps the Power of Divine Timing. It sees its next meal from a mile away. It doesn’t sit high on its perch, calculating how it will get there. It fixes its eyes on the prize and takes off on the Wings of Faith. It relies on an Unseen Sense for navigation. We see this power in action when the Eagle arrives at the exact moment that it grasps a fish from beneath the surface of the water. It didn’t hover to find it. The Eagle saw it from far away and arrived at the exact point it focused on.
We may think our Dreams are too far away to grasp. From our view on the ground, there are many obstacles in the way that would seem impossible to get over. The Eagle encourages us to see what God sees from Above, to rely on Heavenly Vision to see the unobstructed way. Our journey through the Unknown is the hardest part of the “time we bear” as Human. Through Eagle Vision we find the shortest and direct route to the Manifestation of our Intention.
When we focus on our Intention of Sharing Unconditional Love, and Humble our Self to the Direction and Divine Timing of the Creator, we can hold Faith in the Divinity of the Moment. Instead of seeing experiences we would discard as unworthy, we would know that every Day is a Sacred Event with a Meaning and Purpose. We would see the Divinity of both the Darkness and Light as experiences presented to us by the Creator, leading us toward our own Promise of Knowing Unconditional Love.
We can Fly High without any hesitation knowing the Creator has cleared every obstacle that isn’t worthy. No matter where we are in our Journey, we can maintain the stability of a steady course. We only have to hold Faith that we are positioned exactly where we are supposed to be.
The shadow side of Eagle is using its Freedom to fly away. The Eagle also loses its power when it competes for the same prize. When we fly away from the circumstances we find ourselves in, we fail to Believe in where we are. If our Intention is to Arrive ahead of someone else, we fail to see the Truth that every Human’s Estimated Arrival Time is Uniquely Divine, each path perfect in its own way.
The Road/EB journey has delivered this experience in my own life. I’ve been challenged by “spiritual authorities” that only see one way from Point A to Point B. I am a Human still seen in need of Salvation. My personal lesson on Humility continues as I’m confronted by others who have never Seen me. My Consciousness has been raised to the depth of my need to be Seen. Humility is the only Divine Answer, holding Faith that the only eyes that matter are the Divine Eyes of the Creator. Seeing through the eyes of God, I can humbly claim my value as Sacred and that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be on my own Divine Journey. (CHUEN would find the humor of the experience. The ones I wished were more like me, expressing their wish that I was more like them. LOL Now I can see this dynamic crystal clear from both sides.) The way forward is still unknown, except that the direction must be Discerned in Humility.
We never have to Defend or Prove our value to the world. We can recognize these feelings for what they are, the voice of the Ego that is still afraid of the dark. Only our Ego would challenge others to Defend what they believe. In Humility we can believe in every path chosen to reach the same destination. The Power of the Creator’s Love can reach us, no matter where we are when we hold the Sacred Ground of Humility.
To all my relations, may we Know that our prayers for Divine Guidance insure we will know our own way. May we believe this is a prayer that would always be answered Perfectly by the Creator. May we not question our own way, because of the different path that others have chosen. May we also not diminish the paths of others that hold the same fundamental Intention, and whose eyes are fixed on the same prize of Eternal Oneness with the Creator. Every path to the Creator is led by the One Same Light. May we Dream our Highest Aspirations and ask God to lead us there. The Higher our Hope, the clearer our vision will be that only a Divine Creator could have made it possible. May we hold faith in the Eyes we were all Given to see the Light in the Darkness. May we remember that we fly the Highest in the Stealth of Humility. May we sacrifice the pride of our Human Nature for the Promise of Divinity. When we forget the way, may we remember that we can turn to the Creator and simply ask, “Where would you lead me today?”
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.
Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation.Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions,cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance. Totem-Eagle. Powerful energy for success in worldly affairs, due to far seeing vision. Ability to create masses of money and abundance through an intellectual type of profession. Eagle asks for what he desires and manifests it. Professor, lawyer, teacher, leader.
