MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. 5 resides in the Center of the cube as the intelligent and organizing force that carries out an application of knowledge and resources, directed by Intention. Tone 5 lends the Power of Knowing all the Ways and Means of Creation, and draws them all together as a Central Truth of the Power to Manifest a Dream.
Eagle/MEN is the Day Sign that sees what it wants in the far distance, and forgets about the Ways and Means, and simply takes off focusing on the prize. The characteristic Central to the Eagle is it’s Higher Vision and its ability to navigate by Intuition.
Eagle sees its prey over a mile away. It doesn’t hover or calculate the way. It’s means of navigation is to focus on what it wants. Eagle operates on an Inner Knowing that it will be guided to the perfect time and place.
In an Intention to Create, the Monkey trecena has led us through the preliminary process of discerning what we want. 3 Reed/BEN identified a way of movement, guided by a Light from Above. And 4 Jaguar/IX raised our Consciousness to connect the Above and the Below through our gratitude for the world of Magic and Beauty that was given to us.
Jaguar/IX shared the Intuitive Knowing that the Dreams we were Divinely Inspired to Dream were presented to us because they are possible. Jaguar knows that if we can see it, we are capable to grasp it. As the nuhaul of Spirit, Jaguar helped us see beyond the veil to the Truth that the Dream in our Imagination was inspired because the Creator Knows what we Love by the things we are most Grateful for. Gratitude was Jaguar’s Magic that identifies our Love to the Creator.
Gathering all those facts together, we could Believe that a Supreme Creator who loves every child the same, would never encourage us toward a dream that was beyond our power to manifest from the Above to the Below.
This is what the Eagle knows before it takes off, that if it can see what it wants, the Creator knows the way and intends for us to reach it. The Eagle doesn’t depend on the Power of its Wings, and doesn’t calculate the wind speed or direction. It assumes it holds the power to reach the destination and forgets it all, depending on a Truth that if it can see the Dream, it only has to move toward it and focus on the image to arrive at the destination.
Eagle/MEN is an Intermediary that carries us to the heavenly realm where there are no obstacles in the path from Point A to Point B. Through a heavenly vision, we can see there is nothing standing in our way. Eagle lifts up for a Divine Perspective that we can see with our own eyes. In the Up Above, we can see what the Creator sees. Having shared our Dream with the Creator and calling upon Divine Guidance, we could Know that the Creator wants us to Grasp the Dream as much as we want to Grasp it for our Self. Imagining what the Creator sees from above, and remembering the Creator intended us to realize our Power to Create, guiding us to its manifestation would be the Divine Justice for our willingness to move into the Unknown holding Faith in the Creator’s Promise.
The Eagle soars on outstretched wings riding the Wind, the Breath of Life and Spirit. It doesn’t flap its Wings, it rides on the Breath of Creation. It allows the Wind to set the course and guide the path. It leaves everything up to a Higher Power and just focuses on the destination.
When we focus on our Dream as we see it manifested and claimed in our Grasp, we share a clear vision of what we intend to create with the Creator.
The image of our Dream can be like a reflection on the water. Stirred up by the chaos of Creation, we might have seen many different images of the Dream. Each image we’ve seen could lead us in a different direction.
Existing in the Creative Void of the Unknown, the Core Days of the 7th uinal, we exist in the realm of all possibilities. Seeing ALL the possibilities, we may think we’re overwhelmed by the many choices we could make. Every Time has a Divine Purpose. Reviewing all the choices, all our resources of creation, and all the Truth that we could rely on to manifest our Dream can identify the Heart of the Matter, the center of our cube. As we reviewed all the options, assessing them by their difficulty and our own power to carry them out, from a Heavenly Perspective, the Creator saw the One we Love the Most. The Creator saw the Dream we were most capable to Grasp.
Today, Eagle/MEN serves as the Intermediary for the Creator who will share the Divine Vision of the Creation that would lead to our Highest Experience of Love. We can leave the Ways and the Means up to a Divine Creator, when we Know what we Love the most. The vision will become clear to us, as the Creator can share the Vision that the Love we are drawn to, will generate the Most Love for the Whole. This is the Dream we can depend on the Creator to guide us to. Given a clear vision of the end that fulfills the Highest Meaning and Purpose, we’ll know exactly which choice to make.
The Creator didn’t share the power of Creation, to have it be limited to lesser dreams, chosen because they seemed easier. What would be the point of the Power of Creation, if we had to figure out which Dreams were possible and which Dreams were not. They would all be possible. The limited possibilities lie with Human as the limit of our Human Faith. Love tips the balance of Faith, and gives us a Divine Reason to keep believing.
Eagle/MEN encourages our Highest Hopes and Aspirations. The Higher we must fly to see them, the more we will see the unobstructed view. The Higher our Dreams, the greater our demonstration of an Intention of Faith. And, the Higher they are, the more we will Know that reaching them was made possible by a Miracle.
Astrologically, we’ve been in a holding-pattern of energy with fixed signs in conflict and Mars in retrograde (until August 27). That implies that our old fixed ways in conflict with our new beginning are under review and new ways forward are under consideration. Allow things to be as they are. Another Solar Eclipse will complete a cycle of Light and Understanding, and will soon shine a new and Enduring Light that will reveal the “green light” to move forward. May we allow ourselves to exist in the Unknown where everything is still possible. Our holding pattern will soon be over and a Divine Creator will let us Know when it’s our time to take off. Remember that the Eagle never has any fear of grasping the dream when it takes off. It Knows it will reach the destination. We can wait until Love urges us to take off.
To all my relations, may we allow the Creator to see to the Heart of the Matter. May we hold Faith that the Creator will return a crystal clear image of the Dream we love the most. When we see it, may we use Eagle eyes to see it in the future in all its detail. May we grasp and hold the Divine Vision of a Dream that is offered to us and etch it in our mind’s eye. May we rise above the Human path below, where we can see there are no obstacles that lie between us and the Dream we hope to Create. May we etch in our memory, the destination we saw through the Creator’s Eagle Vision. May we see our Self through the eyes of the Creator and remember we are the Children. We are the direct descendants of the Most Divine that saw what it wanted and simply Said it Would Be So. May we imagine our first steps of Creation as a major milestone that the Creator has been waiting to see. May we remember that the Power to Complete a climb of Faith will be found in Seeing the Dream we Love the Most, and letting go, believing that the Creator’s Breath will guide us there for the Highest Good of All.

21 DAYS of CEREMONY: Day 2
Observing 21 days of Personal Sacred Ceremony is a traditional preparation for the K’iche Maya New Year, 8 B’atz (8 Monkey/CHUEN). The New Year is a celebration of Time, and the day of Initiation for the new Mayan Daykeepers. We are preparing for an initiation into a new way of being. We can employ the Magic of the Jaguar by observing these 21 Days in Gratitude.
I’m grateful that the Creator encourages us to reach for the Dream we love the most. I’m grateful that the Dream we Love the Most, serves the Highest Purpose for the Whole.

5 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
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: Eagle’s 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.

UPDATE ON A LIFE DREAM:

I’ve started a gofundme page to raise money for the ticket and expenses related to book publishing scheduled for Spring 2019. Please only share if its Easy. You are already the blessing of just being here. (But you could help me spread the word.) much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit
