1 Night / AKBAL – Vision Quest: Day 1 of 13


1 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13 Days…

We Ascended on the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit, Knowing the Truth of our Power to Manifest a Creation of Unconditional Love. Today we begin a new cycle of “Light.” Holding the Wisdom of our Power to Create, we are guided to Dream Again, as the Dreamer Who Believes the Dream will come True.

Night/AKBAL marks a cycle of Divine Inspiration, “Light,” that Speaks to us through our Dreams. Through the manifestation of Higher Consciousness, we are made capable to Hear the Voice of Spirit.

AKBAL connects the Conscious and the Unconscious, the Intellect and Intuition, to unite our faculties for Divine Discernment. Residing in the West, AKBAL will speak a language we will Know as Divine in our Heart. Through the power of our Intellect, we will Discern the Difference between the Voice of Spirit and our own thoughts. AKBAL guides us into a Unity of Body and Soul so that our Human eyes will be opened to see the Light that is always shining in the darkness.

AKBAL guides a journey within. We’re offered the courage to willingly enter the Darkness, where our eyes will grow accustomed to the Light that will lead the way. AKBAL holds the potential for mystical experiences. Our Heart will be opened to a Dream we left behind. We are guided to take a Leap of Faith to Believe in a Miracle.

10th UINAL: The Night/AKBAL trecena resides in the 10th Uinal of Manifestation. The Power to Manifest our Dreams will be magnified by two 10’s – the 10th Tone in the 10th Uinal. The Night/AKBAL trecena offers the Manifestation of our Highest Aspirations. 10 Road/EB in the 10th uinal multiplies a manifestation of our Divine Destiny to Abundance. The 10th uinal is the time of Blossoming. Our Beauty is the proof of Fruit to Come that will hold the Seeds of a new generation of Spirit.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether The Night/AKBAL trecena includes 3 Portal Days that will thin the veil to other dimensions. These are magical days when we are capable to Experience our Spiritual Gifts. On 2 Seed/KAN a new Choice is offered to Dream, Knowing the Truth of our Divine Nature. On 7 Offering/MULUC a Portal will magnify the Consciousness of an Atonement with the Creator. A Portal magnifies the Dream of our Divine Destiny on  10 Road/EB


  • 6 Star/LAMAT – The Totem Rabbit will energize a Pattern of Movement that multiplies Abundance.
  • 7 Offering/MULUC – Will offer Peak Energy for an experience of Atonement.
  • 8 Dog/OC – Dog returns on the Holy Day, bearing the Divine Justice of Unconditional Love.
  • 9 Monkey/CHUEN – The Monkey will offer Deeper Insight to a Dream of Creation.

Vision Quest: A Vigil of Light

I invite you to share a Vision Quest.  A Vision Quest is a “Dance in Spirit,” an Intention to Honor a Sacred Communion of Spirit. Through Consciousness of Time as a Sacred Ceremony, we call upon our Self to be “Here and Now” to be witness to a Miracle.

Traditional ways of Vision Quest are offered for your consideration on the Vision Quest Ceremony page. My Intention is to share it in a worthy way that Honors the teaching of the Elders.

We begin again. A new cycle of Transformation is led by the Spirit that speaks to us in our Dreams. The energies of this Tzolk’in round of 260-days are ramping up. The Night/AKBAL trecena will accelerate our Transformation through an evolution of Spirit.

We entered the energetic cycle of reproduction in the 7th uinal. We designed the Seed of the next generation of our Self. Through a Transformation guided by Divine Agency, we shared the inheritance of our own Dreams and the Wisdom of our Experience. Together, the Above and the Below shared a Divine Meaning and Purpose for Being.

Within the Seed is stored all the Dreams of the Above and the Below. In the 10th uinal the Seed will Manifest its own identity, and its own Dream. Every generation is Equally Given the Sacred Right of Choice.

Night/AKBAL is a cycle of “Light” – a trecena of Divine Inspiration. We are called to the Sacred Fires that burn through the Night. At the Hearth of the Creator’s Love, our Seed will realize the Consciousness of its own Dream. As a new generation, built from the Higher Ground of all who came before, we are able to imagine greater things. We have the new “Light” of Inspiration to lead the way through our darkness.

Night/AKBAL resides in the West, the direction of the Darkness of the Unknown. Holding the Element of Water, AKBAL touches our emotions and Speaks to us through the Language of the Heart. AKBAL offers a new Unlimited Possibility to the Seed that is prepared for Higher Aspirations. The Breath of Spirit, Wind/IK, brought to Life a new Consciousness of Spirit. In a season of Flowering, a new Dream will reveal the Beauty in our Self that will be Multiplied to Abundance.

Connecting Intellect and Intuition, the Conscious and the Subconscious, the Seed will Discover the Dream it’s most impassioned to create. The Voice of Spirit will speak to us of the One Dream that lies deepest in our Heart.

AKBAL will lead us through a Dream. The energy of AKBAL is like a Dream, an other-worldly experience. We will Intuitively Know the Dream we most Long for, and have the Intellect to Discern how important the Dream is to our Happiness. AKBAL will inspire the Passion to Create an experience that fulfills our Longing to be One with the Whole.

The AKBAL trecena is worthy as an opportunity to get in touch with our Deepest Dreams. Dreams we left behind because we couldn’t imagine them coming true, may be brought up for our review. We may feel the pain of Dreams we left behind. AKBAL guides our Wilingness to enter the Darkness where our broken Dreams are stored, still holding their eternal value as something we Loved.

AKBAL can help us to Dream our broken Dreams again by shining the New Light of our Unlimited Possibility. AKBAL can help us Manifest our Highest Dreams. It has to be our Choice to Listen, and invest the Courage to face our Deepest Dreams.

In the Human season of the Tzolk’in round this trecena will complete the Spring of our Transformation. The last Kin of every season of 65 days is acknowledged as the Guardian of the Season. 13 Eagle/MEN guards the Transformation that is intended by the Spring. The Ascension we are intended to Manifest, is a Gift of Higher Vision to see the Future. The Beauty of our Blossoming of New Spirit will bear evidence to a new Consciousness of Love, and the Truth of a Promise to manifest the Fruit of our Spirit.

Our Hope always lies with a new generation. A new Seed begins without the memory of failure, only Dreams of the future. The Light most important to share is the Power of our own Dreams. We’re all born with our own Spark of the Creator, our own talents and gifts through which we Create our own Expression of Love. As a new Spirit is under production, so will an old way begin to die away. A new and Stronger Seed will be guided by the Voice that will inspire a Dream that would fulfill the Divine Justice of all who came before.

The Elders taught us that the Discernment of Divine Spirit was the most important Intention of any Vision Quest. We can Initiate ourselves into a Circle of Protection, calling upon Divine Intervention to maintain the boundaries of our experience, so that we are solely guided by Spirit that Intends the Highest Good for the Whole. In the center of our circle we can be One with the Divine Spirits that stir the embers of our Dream into the Fire that will always Shine for us in the darkness.

A Vision Quest is a time to offer Special Care to our Body and Soul. It’s time to allow our Spirit to be the Priority. We might plan ahead for the time and place to exist in Spirit and to be alone with our own thoughts and feelings. As we may see our darkest longings, we will be warmed by the Fire if we stay Conscious of its Light.

The Cherokee Day Sign the Hearth symbolizes the Sacred Fires that burn through the night, tended by the Elders on our behalf. In the Sacred Ceremony of the Dance, the Fire was the place we could always go to release what no longer served our Happiness. We are given a place to release the Fears and Illusions of our Past. At the Fire we are Near to the Warmth of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. AKBAL will stoke the Fire of Unconditional Love that will wipe away our tears, so that we can clearly see the Light of our Divine Destiny.

A Vision Quest can magnify our experience and manifest the Consciousness of our Communion with the Creator. Our experience will be magnified through the engagement of Sacred Ritual and Ceremony. The Promise of our Ascension is always guarded by the number 13, the symbol of theurgy, the Power to call on Divine Agency to Intervene in Human affairs through ritual and ceremony. When Human engages in Sacred Ceremony, we create a Time and Place dedicated to Consciousness of the Creator. We create the Moment when the Above and the Below are United in Consciousness of one another.

The Elders say you can change your life in 4 days of Sacred Ceremony. Over the next 12 days, we will spin 4 times through the colors of the 4 directions to arrive at the Ascension of 13 Eagle/MEN, the Kin that lifts us to our Highest Vision of Spirit.

This is a worthy time to keep a journal. The Elders encouraged us to “hold our power” by holding our Inspiration to our Self for a time. We can diminish our own Spiritual Experience when we try to explain it too soon to someone else. The Elders warned us to have Patience. The longer our Dream resides in the Void, the more time we are given to Dream of its Unlimited Possibility. A Dream can slip away when we look at it too soon through Human eyes, like waking midway through a dream we wished we could have finished… only pieces and parts of it remain without its resolution.

AKBAL will Build the Power of our Divine Relationship, through an experience Dedicated Solely to a Communion between Divine Spirits. We will Know when our Dream might be shared, when it become our Truth.

AKBAL intends an Experience Dedicated to Spirit. IMIX inspired us to manifest our Dreams from our Imagination. Our Vision Quest is an Imaginary Journey that we can Initiate by our Intention and Movement.

Today’s forecast…

On Tone 1 we begin in Unity with the Creator. The first Sacred Step in the manifestation of our Dream is the Inspiration Shared by the One Divine Consciousness. Tone 1 initiates a new Creation, our Highest Aspiration is to be the “hollow bone” that sets our Human Dreams and Expectations aside, so that we are open to receive a Dream yet beyond our Imagination.

This is a day to “Be here Now” and take note of the thoughts, ideas, and emotions that stir our Passion to experience a Dream so Beautiful we couldn’t Hope to Imagine. This is a day for inner thought. Be as kind to yourself as you can. Tone 1 is the day of our lowest physical energy and reasoning. It’s a great day for reorganization. If all you accomplish is sorting the big paperclips from the little ones, consider it a productive Tone 1. 🙂

AKBAL elevates the Sound of the Voice of Spirit. Make note of your dreams, waking thoughts, and daydreams.

The Sacred Fires at the Hearth of AKBAL will be Burning throughout the trecena. We have a light to turn to, whenever we find ourselves in the dark.

To all my relations, may we begin again with a Heart Opened by Unconditional Love. May we retreat from the Mind of Reason to explore an experience of Spirit, Truth we will Feel, Sense, and Know. Existing in the 10th Uinal of manifestation, may we Acknowledge and Count our Blessings, claiming all the Gifts of Spirit we will receive. May we draw close to the Fire of Spirit as the Light that is always shining in the Darkness. May we gaze into the Fires of Spirit and allow ourselves to Dream that everything is possible. May we be the Dreamer that Believes the Dream. May our Heart Inspire the Creation of a Dream that could only be manifested by a Miracle.

in lak’ech, I am another you

1 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA  O’UO)

Galactic Tone 1: 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 bestt when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

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  O’UO: Hearth’s symbol of the triangle of Orion. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night.  Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension. AKBAL-Night-Totem-OWL, Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, see through the masks of deception, trickery.  High ability of discernment.  Portals open to other worlds and dimensions for your learning and spiritual growth.  Magical abilities are possible.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!


On 4 Sun/AHAU I was able to make the reservations for the trip, arriving on October 28 as I had hoped to be there to celebrate Ian Lungold’s Mayan birthday, 12 Sun/AHAU, on October 31st along with the observance of the Day of the Dead. It felt important to the information I would share in my book. I’m grateful to be part of such a flow of Love, more necessary that money, for the realization of my dream. 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

SEPTEMBER 12th Update:
I received my new passport! My Leap of Faith to buy the ticket before receiving it paid off. 🙂 The reality is starting to set in. I’m excited to carry you with me. My 68th gregorian birthday is this week. I know what a healing it will be to see I’m just as capable as I have always been to charge off into the unknown for the experience. (Monkey must be talking.) I couldn’t be doing this without you.


How are you? – Bix a beel? (pron. Beesh-uh-bell)

I’m very good. – Ma’alobi (pron. Mah ah-low-bee)

And you? – Kux teech? (pron. Koosh tehch)

Thank you. – Ni’bo’olal. (pron. Nee boo ooh lahl)

  1. Once again, so many thanks for bringing the messages and meanings of it all through for us all to utilize the magic in our Journey! For the first time in way too long I can document my dreams without negative interference – wow, a ‘kicking the door open’ ceremony to spirit this shall be! I claim my Journey as my own – totally. I receive the Divine messages of Spirit, as they are gifted to me. I interpret them to the best of my ability, and act accordingly the very best way I possibly can. Gracias mi Hermana! en lak’ech aloha ~e
