MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The next 13 days…
The Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena is among the most Powerful trecenas for dynamic Spiritual Developments. The Road to our Destiny has prepared us to Grow into the Body of our Spiritual Being. We’ve been building the Inner Strength to Believe in our own Power. CHICCHAN Lights the Fuse that ignites the Life Force of Spirit. CHICCHAN will help us Feel and Clearly See our Power of Spirit.
6th Uinal: The 6th uinal generates the momentum for a Rhythm and Flow of Movement. This is the energy of the Great Athlete. Like a Dancer who has practiced all the steps, as the techniques become second nature, the thoughts and Intentions behind it flow as an Expression of Art.
Our most dynamic transformations become possible as we enter this flow. We are no longer dependent solely on our own resources. We will be carried by the Flow of Spirit. The 6th Uinal will carry us to the top of the pyramid of this Tzolk’in round’s phase of Spiritual Growth. We will grow into our Spiritual Maturity, capable to produce the Fruit of our Spirit.
10-Day Portal: Element of Ether
The Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena opens a 10-day Portal, a thinning of the veil to the Dimension of Spirit. CHICCHAN is the Life Force of Spirit that we feel in our body. The Serpent symbolizes our Spiritual Gifts which will be ignited as we pass through this Important Cycle of Transformation. The Portal opens on 2 Transformer/CIMI, remaining open through our phases of Growth and Transformation.
PEAK DAYS: Peak Performance
Peak Days of the trecena mark significant times of Spiritual Growth and Transformation, and the Reciprocity between the Above and the Below.
- 6 Dog/OC will draw us into a Flow and Rhythm of Movement of Unconditional Love.
- 7 Monkey/CHUEN, the Alchemist and Weaver of Time, will establish our balance between the material and spiritual world.
- 8 Road/EB the Day Sign of the Human, will transform us through the Consciousness of our Divine Destiny.
- 9 Reed/BEN will return us to the Altar where our Transformation will be completed in Communion with the Creator.
The Serpent is guiding us through the 6th uinal (column), a 20-day cycle of Flow and Rhythm of Movement. Fluidity and Flexibility are natural characteristics of the Serpent. The Serpent is also capable to be made new by shedding its skin. We are empowered to leave the limitations of our Lower Self behind to grow and expand.
We are all One as the One Divine Mind of Spirit. IMIX, the beginning of all things taught us that all life was drawn from the Void, the Womb of Creation. We are able to Create who we will be by the Vision we hold in our imagination. In the story of the Beginning of the ALL Creation, God spoke the world into being. Wind is the Sacred Breath through which the words were spoken, creating the Breath of Life and Spirit. Genesis details the words of Creation, though little is said about what went on before.
Tone 1 is the Beginning of a new creation. Our Intention will be the Seed. Like the Seed/KAN of our Self, within the Seed is the Knowing that it exists. The Dream of our Intention will define its identity. Like the Seed, knowing its Intention, as a Creation born of a Divine Mind of Consciousness, the Intention creates the Knowing of what it needs to grow, where to find its nourishment, and how to find the Light above that is needed to grow. Within the One Divine Mind, everything is known. This is the realm that is Home to our Spirit. Anything that we create from this Divine Place, will hold the Spark of Knowing itself.
When we create unconsciously, the only thing Known by the Seed is what we are able to see with Human eyes. Its way forward and the place of its nourishment will be limited to the Human experience. Instead of Knowing the direct path to creation, it will Know all the obstacles that Human sees.
The path of Spirit is Free from obstacles. Through the vision of the Eagle, we learned that the view we can see from Above, offers the direct path from Point A to Point B. Eagle sees what it wants in the future, it focuses on the image, then without even calculating the way, it takes off, Knowing it will arrive at the perfect time and place. Eagle creates its own abundance by focusing on what it wants.
Today we are offered the Inspiration for a new Dream of Creation. The Inspiration is offered by a Divine Creator. The Seed of our Dream will hold its own Divine Knowing of everything about itself, what it needs to grow to become its own “I Am.”
Before the Creator spoke the world into creation, it was seen in the Mind of the Creator. It began as a thought held in the imagination of God. The world was seen before it was Created. Seeing the Creation was the Divine Movement that drew it from the Void of all possibility.
CHICCHAN is the Power that preceded Creation, the Force within the Seed to grow, and the Divine Gift of Knowing everything from the One Mind of Consciousness. CHICCHAN’s Force is the engine that drives creation as the Power employed through every Spiritual Gift of Knowing: Intuition, Telepathy, and Clairvoyance. All these Gifts are needed for a Creation that is drawn from our Imagination. Creation was the Divine Intention of their purpose. The Power is wasted if its only application is for a Human advantage. We experience the Whole Power of this Gift, when its used to create a Dream that serves as a Blessing to the Whole.
Road/EB showed us how to grow toward our Divine Destiny. We discovered the pitfalls we would encounter in the experience. Road/EB gave us the Wisdom from experience of the direction of the Light Above, and the nourishment of Love we could draw from our place on Mother Earth. The Truth was sealed within the Seed of our Spirit. Just as all the Love we Create is stored up as our Eternal Power, so is the Wisdom of Truth eternal. Once we Know what is True, we never forget. It’s impossible to see things the way we saw them before. From the day we acquire this Wisdom, we forever see things in a new way.
Truth is stored in our Divine Consciousness. Every Seed created from this point forward, will know the Truth about itself that we discovered.
Serpent/CHICCHAN will carry us to a deeper understanding of our Self and the Power we hold within. The Serpent, the Dragon Energy of Consciousness, offers an Inspiration of Imagination that will draw our Awareness to the Divine Power we hold within. Through an Intention to See it we will Create the Seed of Knowing… a Knowing that will Know everything about itself, drawn from the One Divine Mind of Consciousness. We will Know it too. As Above, So Below.
CHICCHAN is a Day Sign of “Light,” a cycle of new Inspiration. CHICCHAN will place in our minds the Divine Idea, the image we can see in our Imagination. The Flint/ETZNAB trecena that follows will complete our Human binary set of Comprehension. As the following cycle of “Darkness,” ETZNAB will complete the Truth by the Wisdom of an experience of application. As Creatures of Duality, this is how we learn. First we’re given the “lecture” that shares the Concept of Truth. The Truth is only known by Faith, until we Know it as our own experience. Together, these two cycles will form the Wisdom of what we Believe because we proved the “theory of Truth” by our own experience.
CHICCHAN is the cycle of Creation that starts from our Imagination and our Divine Gifts of Knowing. As the thoughts that precede Creation, Knowing the Power of CHICCHAN is the “Highest Education” of Spirit. The Importance of the Truth we will come to Know will ignite our own Power of Creation.
The Creator that designed all the experiences we might Know has insured that we can Know it. CHICCHAN holds the Power to connect Body and Soul, so that we will not only Know it in the Mind, but through every fiber of our Being. CHICCHAN offers the experience of our Spirit in the Body. CHICCHAN is the “Lightning in the Blood,” the Spirit that courses through the veins of our Being.
Led by CHICCHAN, our Revelations of Spirit will be accompanied by a “lightning charge” in the body. To know the experience of CHICCHAN, we can remember a moment when we Felt Love as a Power that sent a charge that raised goose bumps and set our hair on end. CHICCHAN is the experience of Love as we realize a Dream, the Love that swept over us in the moment we received a diploma, or the moment we saw a bride make her entrance, and the moment we first saw our newborn child. This is the Power than CHICCHAN will use to raise our Consciousness of Divinity.
There are so many ways our body speaks to us that we Know but are unconscious that we Know. Our own body tells us when we’re hungry, when we’re thirsty, when it’s time to go to bed, and when it’s time to get up in the morning. We fail to see the Divinity of this knowing in the body that is just like the Seed. We can draw ourselves closer to the awareness of CHICCHAN’s Truth by paying attention to everything the body tells us to do. We can learn to wield this power through a Conscious response. In other words, when we’re hungry, we could hold in our imagination the Truth that the body has spoken. In our thoughts, we could acknowledge the call, and serve it what it needs with the Intention of fulfilling a request. When we’re tired, we could imagine, “I hear you, so now I will serve you by laying down to get some rest.” In this way, we can generate the Movement of Spirit in a direction toward a Greater Awareness of the sensations we feel in the body. Each of us can choose the way that feels most natural to us. Whatever we want to Know can be drawn into the Seed of our Intention. The Cosmic Egg is the circle of the Seed within which all the Knowing of the Creation is held together as the Whole of the “I Am.”
Today is our day to Dream of a Creation. Love will give us the Power to see it in all its detail in our imagination. When we Love something, we Know all the reasons why. The Meaning and Purpose of every Divine Dream, is how we expect to Feel when the Dream is realized. If we Love something, we’ve already seen it in the future. Like an artist that creates a masterpiece, the vision seen in the mind will guide every brushstroke of the creation manifesting itself.
The CHICCHAN trecena requires us to have an Open Mind, willing to Dream of Unlimited Possibilities. No matter what our Dream, this is the Human Will that will be called upon for our Spiritual Growth. We will be called upon to hold Faith that we are empowered to create what we see in our Imagination. What we choose to create is left up to us. CHICCHAN will help us Know what we Love as it helps us realize that Love is all we need to see it through from the Beginning to the End. The Power to Create, Known by the Mind of God, is waiting for us to reach in to the Womb of Creation.
The Transformation of Serpent/CHICCHAN is guarded by 13 Earth/CABAN. Mother Earth is the Divine Resource through which we can Know Everything. The key that will unlock the power is the Divine 13, the number of theurgy. Every question we ask of the Creator in the Communion of our Prayers and Rituals Will Be Answered.
To all my relations, may we open our Hearts and Minds to receive a Baptism of our Spirit. May we come to the altar in Humility, clearly seeing our Spirit as Spotless and Pure. May we dare to believe in a Dream that will Complete our Spiritual Gifts to see and Know everything. May the Dream inspired in Unity with 1 Serpent/CHICCHAN be the One Dream we hold in our Consciousness with a Sacred Prayer that we might KNOW HOW we would create it. May we ask the Creator through the Sacred Ritual of Prayer to open our hearts and minds to the Knowing that will penetrate every fiber of our being. May we ask for Divine Intervention to clear away all unnecessary thoughts that will distract us from our purpose. May we surrender our Will to Forgive to our Higher Power, so that any resentment we find difficult to let go will be surrendered into Divine Hands that promise to serve every Intention of Divinity. May we find a way to Initiate Our Self into the Divine Meaning and Purpose of manifesting our Highest Dream. May our Prayers include one another, and the Dreams that each of us would be holding in our Imagination, so that we can all share the Miracle together.
with all my LOVE, in lak’ech, I am another you

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 13
I’m grateful for a gift from Seed/KAN to believe that our wildest dreams are meant to come true, and the Faith that will be ignited by CHICCHAN to believe we already KNOW the way to manifest our Highest Aspirations.
TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and insight on the Uinal and Portal Days of the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena.
1 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.
