MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 7 holds the Intention of Balance between the Above and the Below. “As Above, So Below” is the Great Law of Creation. What is created in one realm of Consciousness is balanced in all others. This Universal Law illustrates that a construct from our Imagination, holds potential to be Created in the realm of physicality.
A Journey of Intention will always carry us to someplace new. A Journey in Spirit leads a Journey of experience below. Following a course of thought is the Journey of Creation.
Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth as a body that is always in motion. Movement creates Time. Without Time, the Creator existed as the Omega, the Whole of everything all at once. Movement creates Time that allows for the discern of an experience in the moment.
Mother Earth’s movement offers an experience of Darkness and Light. We would Know One by our experience of the other. Without Earth’s movement there would be no Harmony or Equity. For some, the Light would always Be, and for others the Darkness would always Be. Some would never experience a Sunrise, only a Beginning and End in Darkness. Through movement, Mother Earth fulfills a Divine Intention of Harmony and Equity for the Whole. Earth’s movement is perfect. If her sole pattern of movement was simply rotation, it wouldn’t accomplish the Intention. Leaning to and fro, her movement creates the Seasons that complete a planetary cycle of Light. Without the Winter, we would never know the Spring. We would never see a before or after, cause and effect, a beginning nor an end. There would never be a way to see One thing, only the All in One.
Master Number 77: This Intention of Balance is doubled and amplifed as 7 Earth/CABAN is the 7th Tone in the 7th uinal. Number 7 relates to our inner wisdom, intuition, contemplation and discernment, inner strength and tenacity, endurance and determination. 7 relates to our empathic and psychic abilities, spiritual enlightenment, development, and spiritual awakening. Number 77 is a sign from the Angels that our effort in Spirit is about to payoff and to keep up the good work. Number 7 relates to good fortune. Number 77 is a sign that we can expect Miracles in our Life. [Sacred Scribes]
CABAN identifies the Earth as the source of all Human Knowledge. Earth’s movement that creates Time allows us to experience everything. We can even imagine how the Earth was created. If we look closely at this principle of Movement and Time, we could Know that Everything is part of the Whole of Everything, only separated by Moments of Time. Believing in an eternal Light, we claim an experience that both Begins and Ends in Light. Then, darkness could always be seen as a temporary experience, overcome by perpetual movement.
The Cherokee Day Sign, the Heron, is a nahaul of perpetual migration, and a symbol of the Phoenix that rises from its ashes. The Aztec Ollin simply means Movement. The Aztec define the meaning of Ollin as the Intention of Perpetual Movement. They define “the active principle” as lucky, and the “passive principle” as unlucky. Ollin support the Movements of Intention over Movements that go along without any Conscious Purpose or Intention.
Creation requires Intentional Movement. Human is more inclined to “go along” with a movement that is already in motion. We are moved by thoughts and ideas of those around us as easily as we are moved by our own thoughts. We mistake “going along” as our contribution to Harmony and Equity, though when we do, we deny our own equal right of movement. We create for our Self a world where we never express our own identity. “Going along” is often how we cease to move toward our own Dream. When we reach our limit we can be tempted to resign ourselves to a reality that is already in motion.
The Creator set the Earth spinning for all of us to be seen as the pieces and parts of the Whole of the Creator’s thoughts. Each one of us represents Divine Thoughts that were part of the Whole of Creation. Manifesting our Creation, illustrates how a thought can be transformed into matter, how the Creator’s thought Above, manifested an Earth Below.
We know enough about the Universe to know that it didn’t always exist. Discovering where it began and how it came to be are questions central to the science that seeks the answers to the cosmology of everything.
The only Truth we know is that once, there was nothing that held the potential to be everything. Even without Knowing how everything started and what caused it to be, the Truth of Nothing with the potential to be Everything, is a Truth difficult for Human to imagine. The Core Days of the calendar reflect this Time of Being.
We are in a state like the black hole, gathering all the Light we can that would complete a picture of our Dream in our imagination. Pieces and parts of our Creation are being woven together from threads of experiences we imagine. Seeing all the possibilities we exist in the Center of the Chaos of Creation. We reach the limit of our ability to see our Creation.
Just when we think we are unable to imagine what our new world would be, a Divine Agency will Intervene to help us complete the picture. Everything in the world is interconnected. One Dream affects the experiences of the Whole. Only the Creator Knows how all our Dreams can fit together. Only the Creator can weave together an image that will maintain the Integrity of Harmony and Equity.
Tone 7 holds the Intention of Reflection. Looking back, we can see that we Intended a Blessing to the Whole. We can let go of our Dream, knowing the Creator understands the Experience we intended to Create. We will Know it by Divine Intervention, “going along” with the Movements of the Creator’s Intention. Resting our Dreams in the Creator’s hands, it will be given back to be created in its Highest Manifestation of Love.
The Maya saw that each day was a Sacred Event, each day holding an experience that is part of Knowing the Creator. They saw their most important Intention as observing and fully-knowing what we can learn from the moment.
It’s easy to attach our Happiness to a future event. When we do, we create Happiness that will only exist in the future. It’s easy for Human to believe that the only happiness we can know is on arrival. We set a fixed place for happiness in the future. The Creator wanted us to know that every moment holds the same potential for happiness. Each dark moment is part of our Story of Light. Every hero’s story is one of darkness overcome by Light.
Even our dark moments are Sacred. Existing in darkness we are positioned to see the Light we Dreamed of from its very beginning. All we have to do is keep holding Faith in a reflection that the Creator will bring into focus on our behalf, in its Highest Manifestation to be an equal blessing at the perfect time for the Whole.
We can hold Faith that the darkness is an important part of our Story of Creation. The darkness prepares us for our Highest Experience of Light. May we remember the altars we’ve built and that their purpose was a place to bring our offerings. May we offer dreams that were pieced together by Human hands and let them go, so that Divine Hands can weave together the image that we can See and Believe.
This is the experience of the Core Days that I remember, existing in the Darkness of the Unknown. Floating in the Creative Void, it’s hard to see where I’m going and where I’ve been. A journey that seemed to be going in an orderly direction, suddenly feels like we’ve made no ground at all.
Only a Divine Creator knows all the threads that must be woven together into the Whole of Creation. We don’t have to know everything, just the Inspiration of our Dream. The Creator will complete the dream in compliance with every Universal Law, to maintain the Balance of the Universe.
To all my relations, may we know that when we move with intention, we are creating change. May we Know every Cause has an Effect. May we know that when we keep moving in Faith, our eyes will be open to see a Miracle the Creator intended. As we reach the limit of our own Imagination, may we know it as the place where the Creator will step in and draw us toward the Light of our own Understanding. May we not give up and cease to believe, but instead know we stand at the threshold of creation. May we make one more Leap of Faith toward the Light of Believing. May we give thanks for Mother Earth for the movement that promises that we will always end up in the Light.

21 DAYS of CEREMONY: Day 4
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 whenever it seems there’s no reason to keep going is the very place where our next step leads to a Miracle. I’m grateful that even darkness holds a purpose of Divinity.

7 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
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.
