MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 represents the energy of Duality. The foundation for Human Knowledge lies in our way of comparing one thing to another. In Duality lies the symmetry of our form and the two sides of our self – our Human Nature and our Divine Nature, which represent two schools of thought. Human lives in two worlds, the physical world and the Spiritual world that we create in our imagination.
Through the Balancing of our two natures, we hold the Power of manifesting any Dream we Choose to Imagine. Tone 2 guides us to make a Conscious Choice.
Earth/CABAN offers us a Divine Way to move forward. CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth that reminds us that she is the source of everything Human can know about the Whole of Creation. Whenever we have a question about how things work, we can turn to Mother Earth for the answer. Earth represents the Divine Feminine that held the duty to raise us up into the Wisdom to fulfill our Divine Meaning and Purpose.
PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether – A Portal Day thins the veil to other dimensions. This is a day when we are connected with our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. Through an Intention of Consciousness, we can Know the Guiding Presence of the Ascended Masters who serve us as Divine Agents of the Creator. On 2 Earth/CABAN we are offered the Wisdom of seeing that the Earth within our Self, is one and the same Elements that once held the Consciousness of our Grandfathers and Grandmothers. As Human descendants of the One, we are always One with each other – the same dirt raised up to hold our own Spark of the One Divine Consciousness.
The Spiritual Masters who have Ascended to the realm of Spirit, hold the Wisdom of Truth that Human living on Earth can only Know by Faith. The Elders long to share their Wisdom for what they Know is a Collective Effort of Transformation.
The Wisdom/CIB trecena wants us to use our Gift of Consciousness in the real world, applying AKBAL’s Inspiration that all our Dreams are Possible. Tone 1 offered a reason to create. Today we discern our own way to carry it out.
The Higher Intention of this trecena is to Create a Beautiful Life for our Self. We are learning to imagine the world as it was seen in the Creator’s Dream. The Creator dreamed us to be totally free to make our own choices. We would honor the choices of others. Our greatest happiness would be found loving one another. We would be artists of Beauty, as all the Dreams we imagined came True. We would know our own Power to Create a world of Unconditional Love, because we could see it in our imagination.
The Cherokee Day Sign the Heron is a bird of perpetual migration. The Heron is also the symbol of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. CABAN reminds us that Movement is a Sign of Life. We are made of Earth. What is true of Earth is true of us. What is true of us, is true of Earth. So does Mother Earth have a physical body and a spiritual body of Consciousness. She moves for a Divine Purpose. She carries us from darkness to light to Know the Truth of the Dawn.
The movement of Mother Earth creates the Time through which we are capable to discern a dynamic experience. Before the Creation, the Omega was the all-in-one as a pure vibration of Love and Light. The Creator was always everything there ever was or could be – an “I Am” capable to be anything. Through movement, Earth separates one experience from another. Through Time, Human is able to experience the Creator’s thoughts. Through a Human response, the Creator is able to Experience its own identity.
We are the clay of Earth in the Creator’s hands. We were miraculously formed with all the Elements necessary to hold the Consciousness of Being. We were created as a one in an unlimited possibility of Being. Love must be a Choice. We can’t be the Giver of anything that is Demanded from us. Our own expression of the Creator’s Love will be the Choice of our Intention.
Guided by the Old Ones, I think of Yoda – telling us to Choose Wisely. CIB reminds us to use our Gift of Consciousness. The “dark side” will always lead us to impulsive action that is motivated by fear. It’s easy enough to tell the difference between motivations of Love and Fear, if we only pay attention. We can consciously use our Fear to discern what we haven’t yet forgiven – darkness that holds the potential for Light.
The Aztec sign of Ollin simply means Movement. The center round stone of the Aztec calendar depicts K’inich Ahau, described as Ahau shining the Light of Illumination. K’inich Ahau is celebrated in the first moments of the Haab New Year, the ending of the Wayeb and the beginning of a new cycle of Solar Light.
K’inich Ahau is the Sun God, portrayed as a young man, with with strength like the rising sun. Kinich Ahau is also associated with the jaguar which was the most powerful dweller of the forest. (Source) The Ollin symbol marks 20 positions on the calendar, reflecting the All-in-One 20 Day Signs (The outer circle depicts the Aztec glyphs for the 20 Day Signs.)
Human receives Illumination by our own CONSCIOUS Movement through Time. We learn from our experiences when we are Conscious of the choices we made on purpose. Movement through life offers the opportunity to test out our choices so we can learn from them. We can’t learn anything about our Self, when we drift along with the unconscious choices of the whole.
The Aztec offer an omen for Ollin days as “unlucky” for the “passive principle” and “lucky” for the “active principle.” In other words, Ollin encourages us to Move with Purpose.
Living life as a unconscious experience we are out of touch with how few choices we actually make for our Self. We are blind to all the choices we never even think about or are actually chosen from our own discernment of Truth.
The whole concept of consumerism is a motive for creating the wealth of nations. (See the “magnum opus” upon which governments are built. Wealth of Nations – Wikipedia.) Consumerism is a carefully thought out intention to motive Human to eat through the resources of Mother Earth, without any consideration of sustaining the resource. It doesn’t take a lot of thought to see a future where more stuff for more people will eventually run out.
Who decided that the clothes we wear next season must be different than the season before? Think of the vast resources that could be reallocated to a higher purpose if we chose for our Self what we wanted to wear? One of the employees where I work was gathering donations for his native home in West Africa. As we were considering what to give, we asked about clothes. He flatly said. They don’t need clothes (ie. as if, we should see they are already wearing clothes in the pictures.)
The Old Ones question is, “How will you choose to go forward? How will you know the difference between the movements you intend, and the movements of passively going along? They share the Wisdom that through Choices of Consciousness, we hold the Power of a New Life. By Choice, we have the Power to Rise from the ashes of our past.
On Tone 2 we are offered a Choice of Movement. We are offered a Divine Experiment of Creation. Through our Consciousness applied to an Intention of Creation, we can Know how far we are capable to carry our own Dream. We’ll create the Wisdom that measures the difference between living a life of “Passive” and living a life of “Passion.”
This is a Day to Honor Mother Earth, acknowledging that together Earth and Humanity are One in a Collective Consciousness of Life and Experience. Turning to Her to discern our Oneness with the Whole of Creation, she will help us Know our same Oneness with One Another. May we find a way to Give our Love to Her as our Gift to the Whole.
In the 10th uinal of the Tzolk’in, a new life is manifesting before our eyes. This is a Sacred Time of claiming a manifestation that is taking place in our own world of physicality. Producing the Fruit of our Spirit, means a manifestation of Abundance that we will be capable to see with Human eyes. To manifest a world of Harmony and Equity, every Human must be Honored for their own Right to Be.
We are called to leave something in the ashes of our past. To manifest the Unity Below that was Inspired by our Unity in the Above, the “Other” must be left in the ashes of our past. The “Other” must cease to exist to rise into the Consciousness of the “One.” We must acknowledge that all of us are carried within the Movement from darkness to Light. We will draw forth that which we are looking for, and that which we imagine. As Dreamers capable to manifest the Dream, we are walking “self-fulfilling prophecies.”
Through a new Divine Intention, Wisdom/CIB, our personal Yoda, will show us the way to use the Force of Creation wisely.
To all my relations, may we love the Earth beneath our feet as the foundation upon which every Human stands in connection to One Another. May we Know that the Love we Offer to Mother Earth, generates an equal response of Love that emanates through her vibration – touching every Human. As we experience our Love for Her, may we be Conscious of the presence of her Body in every one of us. As we see the Flowers brought forth as a collective effort between Earth and Sky, may we see Humanity as the flowers that can also be drawn forth to bloom in the Creation of the Fruit of our Human Spirit. May we offer our Gratitude and Appreciation for Mother Earth, as the Gift to Human by the Creator that would be the Source of everything we need as Human to live a Life of never-ending Blessings of Love. May we choose to be Conscious of our likeness to our Mother, and the magical forces within our Self that are awaiting a Human discovery.
May we move forward with a purpose of Creation employing our Gift of Consciousness to rise from the ashes of a life we never chose for our Self.

2 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
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, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. 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 Egyptian Phoenix. (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hall)

UPDATE ON A LIFE DREAM: OCTOBER IS HERE
The reality of the journey has set in with the arrival of October. The jaguar has already begun my journey into the unknown. I’ve already imagined myself before the stairs of El Castillo pyramid making my offering of Sacred Ceremony and the prayers I will share for all of us.
Those that have been there before have reminded me I’m going to a tropical jungle, where real jaguars walk in stealth.
I hadn’t thought much about the possibility of seeing or hearing a Quetzal bird or a Yucatan Spider Monkey. The timing close to November should offer a slight drop from the highest temperatures, and a little more potential for rain.
I’ve already followed a jaguar’s path to Ek’ Balam, imaging a place that might present itself to leave an offering for Ian Lungold. I’ve imagined the connection that could be made there.
I’ve climbed a few steps, resting near the bottom to see how I am capable to accomplish the task if I take it a few steps at a time.
I’ve already looked back from the future, from a dream I once thought could never come true for me.
I can see that a Miracle still lies beyond the Dream. I still can’t imagine what it could be. My Intention is to honor every moment and surprise in the experience as a path that was laid before me as the Divine Justice for a Deeply Held Dream of Consciousness. You have been a part of making my dream come true. much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit
