MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 7 holds the Intention to Balance the Above and the Below. What we create in one realm of Being, is balanced in all the realms of the Mind, Matter, and Spirit. Our movements made in any realm have a direct influence on the state of another.
Night/AKBAL is the Dreamer and the Light that Shines in the Darkness. Mystical experiences are associated with AKBAL as it makes a connection between our Intelligence and Intuition. AKBAL connects us to higher dimensions and speaks to us through our dreams.
AKBAL resides in the West, the Direction of our Unknown Experience, the “hard road of life,” and the void that holds unlimited potential. Until we see and define our future, anything could happen. AKBAL is rich with Potential. What we define as Real in our Dreams, will be made Real in all our realms of existence. This is the mystery of Creation that Human struggles to see, as an Unseen Force of our Spiritual Nature. Once we master this Truth, we hold the “Keys to the Kingdom.” This is the Light of AKBAL, the Dreamer who Believes in the Dream.
Tone 7 is a tone of reflection to see all that is, and all that is not. At the top of the pyramid of our climb of Spiritual Growth, we are given the ability to see far in all directions. This the place to reflect on our experience. What we define as our Truth will be made True in our Mind, Body and Spirit. Like a Gift from the Above to the Below, AKBAL helps us discern the Truth of Spiritual influence on our experience of Mother Earth. This a day when we can hear the Voice of Spirit and know it is Real.
We are tactile by Human Nature. We are inclined to see reality as what we can perceive through our senses of sight, touch, and sound. We can easily Believe that the Voices in our Head are only our own random thoughts. We struggle to hear it as a Real Voice. We think that only a chosen few receive direct messages from Above. Given the Truth that we were created equally, we ALL hear the Voice of Spirit. We can spend a lifetime hearing it in the background, but until we discover it, it remains unknown.
Only through an effort of Higher Consciousness – a choice to pay attention to our thoughts – will we come to know the Reality of this Voice.
The realm of Spirit is the “magic world” that was shared with Human through the Spark of the Creator. Within the realm of Spirit we hold the keys to the Power of Creation. Once we realize it, we unlock the door to unlimited discoveries.
I wonder if we all share the same desire for a direct communication with the Divine. When I was 10 years old, each night I’d pray for Jesus to appear at the end of my bed. I wanted to know that Spirit was real. I wanted to see it in the realm of physicality. I wanted to Wholly Believe in the things unseen. I remember wondering what I’d do if Jesus really did appear.
This was a quest that carried on through my childhood. A few years later at a church camp, we were given the task of going out by ourselves in nature to study a scripture. The camp was surrounded by nature with paths through the woods. I took a path that climbed the hill near an embankment and found a grassy spot on the ground a few steps off the path. I have no recollection of the scripture, only my attention focused again on “seeing God.” I waited patiently, but nothing happened. As I was preparing to leave I looked down at the grass around me. I was inspired to see that God WAS there in a single blade of grass. It seemed a concession, though I took it to heart.
When I got up to return, I walked to the other side of the path along the ridge. Just beyond the trees was a vast overlook to the River where a whole other world came into view. It was a stark contrast to the small spot I’d chosen that was surrounded by trees. The Sun and the sky opened up and I could see from horizon to horizon a beauty that lay before me. I knew that God had answered my prayer and showed me that he was present in everything from a blade of grass to the Whole of Everything.
We have to make the same “small concessions” to discover the presence of a Divine Spirit. When we can Acknowledge the presence of God’s Voice in the smallness of a passing thought, a whole communication of Spirit can come into view. We can realize the Voice we hear has always been there. We never realized it, because we thought they were our own thoughts. Through the Gift of Consciousness we can tell the difference. When we do, a Divine Correspondence become the Dawn of a New Awakening.
Waking nightmares of the fear of the Unknown, gave way to waking up to a Voice of Inspiration, thoughts I want to share with you. May daily experience of living is as different as Night and Day since October 2015.
I know this same experience is happening to you. If it is not yet real in your consciousness, it’s only a matter of drawing awareness to your own thoughts. We are all One and the Same Kindred Spirits. One small change in Spirit can change everything about life, by just believing that everything is going to be okay. We are already “enough” and “worthy” for a Divine Consciousness to worth through us and transform our Fears and Doubt into Faith and Believing.
Today is an important day of Spirit. AKBAL can raise to our Consciousness our deepest suffering from life’s experience of the Unknown. AKBAL is the breakdown that leads to the big breakthrough. All our experiences of Unconditional Love are a breakthrough. The experience is transformed when we SHARE the breakdown in Communion with the Creator. AKBAL is the voice that breaks through with the Voice of Love.
Today’s energy holds the potential for a Spiritual Experience. AKBAL is the Voice that Speaks to us in our Dreams, whether we are sleeping or awake. AKBAL can be a dreamy kind of day when we’re likely to feel detached from reality. We exist in the Void of Possibility in the Ether of Spirit. The Intention of Tone 7 can help us to reflect on our experiences. The Truth we discern will be made Real in our Heart, Mind, Body, and Soul.
This is a day that awakens our Sense of Spirit. You can mark AKBAL’s Divine Communication on your calendar. If you haven’t already noticed the experiences on AKBAL, make a note of your experience so you can look back and recognize it when an AKBAL day comes again.
The Cherokee Day Sign of the Hearth is the symbol of the Sacred Fire that burns in the darkness. The Hearth is the “council fire” where the Elders gather to tend the fire through the night. They wait for us and long to share their Wisdom. They can’t give us answers we must find for our Self, but they show the Way to Discern the Voice of the Creator.
A single candle is capable to dispel the dark. Even a faint glimmer of a far-away Spirit holds the Light for our direction. As we move closer, we’ll discover that what was seen as a small light in the distance was, in Truth, a raging fire.
The Elders were strong in their teaching about the discernment of Spirit. They taught that whenever we sense a presence of Spirit it was right and good to ask, “Who are you and what do you want?” If the answer isn’t clear, we can bless it and command it to leave, asking the Ascended Masters for their assistance in escorting it away. We will Know the Voice of Divine Spirit by the substance of its message. The Voice of the Creator will always be a message of Hope, Promises, and Miracles of Love. We will recognize it when it touches our Heart. We can call on a Divine Agency that is with us now through this transformation to allow communication only from those Spirits that support the Highest Intentions of Love for the Whole.
Every Archetype of the calendar serves in the role as both a guide and a way of being. We can serve as AKBAL by Believing for One Another. Our Belief for others can be manifested from Above to the Below. We are changed by those who See us and Acknowledge us in the Dream of who we want to be.
To all my relations, today I Believe For You an Experience of Spirit. I pray that you are surrounded by God’s angels that would provide the comfort and safety to open your heart. I claim for you that a Call from the Heart will be met with a distinguishable response, so that you can also Believe in your Heart, Mind, Body and Soul. I pray that you Know there was a Divine Plan for your creation. May we know that what we see as impossible in the realm of physicality, God made possible from the realm of Spirit.
May we mark today as the day that AKBAL shared with us our meaning and purpose for being. Our RIGHT to Be who we are. We were never expected to be perfect, only Human, for that is the very foundation upon which we will Know the Miracles in our life. Our lives weren’t expected to be a chronilogical record of perfection. Our Consciousness of our own failure is the Sign of our Divinity, because we wanted to be so much more.
in lak’ech, I am another you

THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE:
I’m grateful that my brokenness serves the purpose of Knowing Unconditional Love. I’m grateful that my brokenness is a Sacred Offering to the Creator… the price of being Human, and the Great Blessing and Destiny of manifesting Unconditional Love on Earth.

7 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective; 7 stands as the mirror to divide light and dark and reflect all that is and is not. 7 is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will. 7 establishes the purpose to current and future goals.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void… a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night.
