MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Intention of Tone 5 is Empowerment. Tone 5 represents the center of the cube, a central organizing force that draws all resources together for application. Tone 5 intends to gather what is needed to complete our new climb of Spiritual Growth.
Star/LAMAT is a symbol of Human as a Personification of Light. Human is made of the elements of the Stars. LAMAT is a symbol of Venus. The Morning Star cycle of 260 days and Evening Star cycle of another 260 days, correspond with the gestation cycle of Corn, and Human, inspiring the 13 numbers, 20 Day sign Sacred Calendar (13 x 20 = 260).
The 13 numbers reflect the 13 Intentions of Creation. The 20 Day Signs reflect 20 different perspectives, as Ways of Being. Over the course of the Tzolk’in round we experience 20 different ways to approach every Intention of Creation. The Tzolk’in round represents an entire Harvest cycle of Human’s Transformation of Consciousness. The Tzolk’in offers us a Beginning and an Ending that allows us to see our own Transformation through the Human eyes of Duality – we see the Difference in our Self at the End as we can Remember a Beginning.
Aside from the Sun, Venus is the brightest heavenly body that generates its own Light. Human was created to shine in both the Darkness and the Light.
Lamat’s totem is the Rabbit, which is also the Cherokee Day Sign. The Rabbit represents Love Overflowing, the energies of re-birth, regeneration, ripening, harvest and abundance. LAMAT is seen as a day of “pure luck” by its ability to multiply to abundance whatever we focus on. It’s a Blessing that comes with the Responsibility to focus on what we want, given its potential for manifestation.
10-DAY PORTAL, DAY 3: Ether of Spirit
Portal Days hold the power to magnify our supernatural experiences through a thinning of the veil to the realm of Spirit. We were blessed with a magnification of our Consciousness for the purpose of our Highest Creation, a reality of Happiness, Harmony, and Love. On 5 Star/LAMAT, a Portal magnifies an Empowerment of Light. LAMAT empowers us to shine our Light, equally in all directions. Portals magnify our “lightning in the blood.” This is the Force of Life and our Sixth Sense of Knowing, experienced as Revelations, Epiphanies, or Experiences of Consciousness and Knowing that are accompanied by a “quickening,” as blood rushing through the body. Through their power of magnification, Portals offer an enhanced opportunity to experience our Spiritual Gifts. This “lightning charge” is our Direct Connection to the Power of the Creator that Consecrates an experience of Divine Consciousness.
LAMAT guides the way to share our Love that fulfills the Creator’s Intention for Harmony and Equity. Like a star, we can implode unless we shine a balanced Light. LAMAT teaches us to not give all our Light away, or to turn all our Light inward. The glyph includes markers of the 4 directions to symbolize that we were meant to share our Love equally all around.
Star/LAMAT is a symbol of our identity as the scion of the Creator, the first descendants of the Brightest Star that shines to Earth, the Sun. The Whole of Humanity was born as sparks of the Sun, each one equal though different, as the first born and all the first Inheritors of the Creator’s Love and Light.
We were meant to Love one another equally, for the Sake of Love. Just as we were meant to Live for the Reason of Love, we must share Love for the Reason of Pure Love.
Just as we Create for many reasons, so can we Give Love for many reasons. We can give our Love to a Black Hole, if our Intention of Sharing Love is to make someone else Love us back. If we think about it, that’s NOT Unconditional Love, but Love that seeks to draw the Light of another.
I discovered ways that I bent over backwards to earn Love from people who didn’t share it willingly. I was drawn to these people, needing their approval and validation. All the while I was giving, I never realized how hard I was trying to draw their Light. Meanwhile, there were people right next to them that were available and waiting with an equal exchange.
For many years, I lived to draw the Light from my family, trying to Be what they wanted me to be in an effort of winning their approval (Love). A counselor helped me see that I was returning again and again to an empty well, when there were many other sources of Love that were present and available to exchange the Love I longed for. It seemed like a very hard lesson to learn. I wanted Love the way I wanted it. I valued one source of Light greater than another. I denied that the Power of the Love was equal in every Human.
A Divine Creator can fulfill every Dream of Love, when we allow the Creator to help us manifest the experience. We have to believe that our prayers for Love can be answered in an unlimited number of ways. The Elders always said, “There are many ways to accomplish the same thing.” We could ask our Self, “Do I really care where the Love comes from, if the Experience of Love is just as Beautiful?”
I thought for a long time that I had to find a “soul mate” to know Love. Today I believe we are all “soul mates.” It doesn’t make the idea of One soul mate any less possible, but expands our resources for Love. We have something more special to give as “Unconditional Love,” love that doesn’t need anything returned. When we Know this kind of Love, ALL our relationships are elevated to a Higher Experience of Love. Unconditional Love always manifests an “equal share of Love.” It creates equal happiness for both the Giver and the Receiver. Just think of the last time you performed an act of kindness, expecting nothing in return. This is the Divine Light we have to share with each other.
The Cherokee saw the Rabbit as a trickster, like the Coyote’s way. LAMAT’s energy can feel a little “jumpy.” Rabbit reflects its vulnerability and tendency to either quiver in fear, or jump into action. It’s energy can be a little unsettling, when you’re trying to hold focus on what you want.
I used to find my mind wandering to things I didn’t want, then become fearful that this is what I was going to multiply to abundance. LAMAT can guide us to set our Intentions early for the day. We can call upon a Divine Agency to Intervene and hold the Integrity of our True Intention. Deer/MANIK taught us that for every Human limitation, there is a Spiritual Tool to overcome it.
LAMAT can teach us to shine our own Light of Unconditional Love as the Power that will always regenerate our own Light. Dog/OC is the symbol of the Creator’s Perfect Unconditional Love. A Dog offers its Love without Condition. When its Love is not received, it moves on to the next opportunity without holding a grudge. It doesn’t demand Love in return, but leaves the door open for a future opportunity.
We can shine an enduring Light when our Love is Unconditional. A gift of Love is eternal. When we demand nothing, our Love will still be there with the possibility of being seen in the future. ALL the Love we leave behind is seen by the Creator who Intends for it to be multiplied to abundance as our Gift of Divine Justice. The Creator will insure that we get our equal share of Love, Love that overflows beyond our Human Understanding. We can give Love for the Sake of the Creator’s Sacred Exchange of Unconditional Love.
To all my relations, may we learn to shine our Light like the Sun, the symbol of the Unconditional Love of a Supreme Creator. May we Acknowledge and Love how we were all born “soul mates,” each sharing a Spark of the One. May we never value One Spark as greater or lessor to another, but see each one of us and an Instrument through which we can Share our Unconditional Love with the All-in-One, the Omega, the Divine Consciousness of the Whole of Creation. May we Acknowledge and Love that each Human can share a different perspective of Love that can multiply our own experience of Love to Abundance. May we see the Truth as it’s illustrated by Mother Earth. She reflects her Beauty in an unlimited number of ways from the macro to the micro, each reflection of Beauty a different manifestation that expresses the Creator’s Love. She was given to us as a living illustration of the Unlimited Beauty in Humanity in our Movement toward the Light of the Creator. May our Love be guided by the Creator’s Love. May we question the Reasons we Love. May the Love we give for no other reason than for the Sake of Love be Multiplied to Abundance. May we call on this Power for the Creation of a New World, where we have the Power to Enter the Darkness without any fear, because we Realized the Light in our Self, and the Sparks of the Creator’s Light shining all around us.
May we look to the night sky, through a portal, to see beyond the material world to the realm of Spirit. May we Crystallize the Vision of all our Sparks shining there… some twinkling, some sharing a steady light, some red, yellow, blue, and white, the colors of the Corn found within every human body. May the world we create for the New Seed of our self, look just as beautiful in Spirit as all the Lights in Heaven.

5 Star/LAMAT (Cherokee, Rabbit/(Star/LAMAT/ TAKATO’KA)
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.
Star/LAMAT: Star energy is multiplication of all things to abundance. Star has been associated with the fertility of rabbits for its ability to multiply. As each sun in the sky, Star persons shine equally in all directions. This natural tendency of harmony and balance can become compulsion, motivating Star to be too agreeable and too generous, rejected gifts cause fear and resentment. When a Star believes it has been given too much, they are weakened or may even collapse. In this “Black Hole” state, Stars are prone to verbal jousting and arguing to force their point of view on everyone.
Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA: Symbol-Venus, The Morning Star cycle of 260 days and Evening Star cycle of another 260 days, inspired the 13 numbers, 20 Day sign Sacred Calendar. Rabbit is the Trickster of Cherokee culture, matching the Coyote in other nations. The personification of Light and New Life, Sunrise, the scion (a first-generation descendant) of the Moon-Father of earth children, the Rabbit is fertility, be fruitful and multiply. Represents softness, gentleness and vulnerability. LAMAT– Totem Rabbit. Energies of re-birth, regeneration, ripening, harvest and abundance. This person is overflowing with love energy in all areas of life. Spiritual growth is natural and with ease due to the unconditional love energy that flows.
