MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 brings the Intention of Empowerment. As the “center of the cube” Tone 5 is an organizing force that manages resources for application. Running the world from our own “operations control,” Tone 5 helps us see our power to manifest the world of our creation.
Sun/AHAU is the Supreme Creator, the source of Life and Happiness that Illuminates all things. Like Wisdom/CIB, AHAU represents the Ascended Masters who serve on behalf of the Creator. AHAU is the Sum of ALL Wisdom from the Above and the Below… the Omega the all-in-one.
Sun/AHAU is the 5 at our Center, when we turn to the Light of Illumination. We thrive when we turn our faces to the Sun, our Supreme Creator. Mother Earth holds all the Knowledge, and Given a Divine Consciousness Human is Empowered to Ask the questions.
The Wisdom/CIB trecena is a cycle of “Higher Education.” CIB intends for us to use our critical thinking skills. For a review, 3 Flint/ETZNAB guided us to Move forward based on a Discernment of Truth we “Know” without question. When we don’t know the Truth, we wait til we do. When we see a storm on our horizon, when we are afraid, we run Home. We’ll be guided by our Head and our Heart if we are good students and pay attention.
This is a day to Celebrate the Gift of Consciousness that was shared by the Creator, the Spark that empowered us as the Scion of the Omega, the all-in-One. So are we part of the all-in-one on Earth. All living things were drawn forth from Earth by this Light of Illumination. There is Consciousness in Every Thing to Be what they will Be. Only Human was given the Choice of Identity. Sun Illuminates the Unlimited Choices offered by Consciousness.
The Creator empowers us as Master Creators. Human doesn’t have to know anything. We only have to be willing to Dream, and all the Answers can be Illuminated within us. Whenever we have an encounter with the Sun, we can expect a Revelatory Discernment about our Self. (The same is true when the Sun enters your astrology sign.)
Tone 5 asks us to take stock of all the Spiritual Tools we were given. The Elders said over and over again, “It’s not whether you will know what to do, but whether you will Remember.” The Way isn’t difficult. The path is Easy. We only have to pay attention to where we’re going. We hold the Power shared by ALL of the Day Signs. Deer/MANIK shared the gift of Vigilant Observation.
The 20 Day Signs are the all-in-one. We can turn to their perspective on any day. The Tzolk’in guides us through 13 Divine Intentions with 20 different perspectives. With each round of the calendar, we’re transformed by thinking about Creation in 260 ways. I imagine what the future might be if we all had 260 different ways to think about things. I’m grateful for a legacy that was left in stone.
Our Spark is a Powerful thing. It’s a piece of the Supreme Creator. We apply so much effort by Human force, we expect it to be just as hard in Spirit. Creation is manifested in Spirit before it is manifested on Earth. Our Dream will always be manifested on Earth when we see it perfectly in our imagination. We only have to imagine it coming true.
Sun/AHAU brings Illumination and our Unlimited Capacity to Discern it through our Consciousness. Among the lessons of the Elders was to walk the path “before.” In the Winter, before the end of the year, they taught us to use the Medicine Wheel in a meditation to walk to each month of the year. 12 positions around the parameter of the circle represented the 12 months of the year. Month by month we imagined the Blessing in our future. We took note of colors, totems, or other inspiration that entered our dream. In this way we left a path to follow.
The AKBAL trecena taught us that all of our Dreams can come Truth when we follow the Voice of a Divine Consciousness. Sun/AHAU shines a brighter light on the Blessings that have already manifested on Earth, and the Truth of even Brighter Days Ahead.
The Creator Knows us and the challenge of our Human Nature. We weren’t meant to walk far without any Light. This is the Day of Light we’ve been waiting for. 5 Sun/AHAU completes an Intention of Manifestation in the 10th uinal. We are manifesting our Power to See the Light.
The Cherokee Flower demonstrates the way of Life, Light and Happiness is to always follow the Sun. We are guaranteed to manifest our Higher Wisdom when we ask what a Supreme Creator would have us do.
To all my relations, may we reach Higher than we have before. May we willingly go out on a limb to hold Faith in the Creator’s Unlimited Possibilities. May we imagine a chain reaction that follows from one heart to another when we offer a gift of Understanding, Tolerance, Forgiveness, and Unconditional Love. May our Creation serve an Intention to pay forward an investment in Love, in the ways we would most love to Express it. May we turn our eyes to the Sun as it crosses the sky, and Acknowledge it as the Creator’s Gift of Eternal Love, Light and Happiness… the Light that would wake us to Dream.
The Elders taught us to greet the dawn and to use our right hand to draw the light from across the horizon to our lips. We did this 4 times. The Elders said it was an ancient way of “Eating the Beauty of the Light.” It was a symbolic movement of Acknowledging the Creator as the Light that feeds our Inspiration. This was the way the Sun Greeting began that was followed by an offering of cornmeal. A handful was given the breath of our prayers 4 times and released to fall across the light on the horizon. If you are unable to greet the dawn in such a way in the material world, the Offering is Just as Sacred when it is carried out in Spirit. We can greet the Sun this way as it leads us through our day.
In lak’ech, I am another you

5 Sun/AHAU (Cherokee, Flower/GUN’TSI EK)
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 networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
Sun/AHAU: Day of the ancestors and connection to their guidance. The divine face of the sun – lord, musician, singer, dancer, and marksman. Suns are artistic, heroic athletes, visionaries with wise judgment who lead and defend the people. So much is expected from themselves and by other people that unfulfilled expectations are a certainty. An accumulation of these disappointments may lead Sun to evade responsibilities, not accept corrections and even build resentment and disdain towards others. Suns should simplify their lives to be able to rise and shine with unconditional love once again.
Cherokee, Flower/GUN’TSI EK: Symbol is the Sun, place of abode of Great Spirit. The Sun creates, nurtures, and is the super communicator, the way station that relays messages and energy from other stars in the galaxy; provides energy for channeling information from the Ancestors; speaking the Living Language of Light, which ignites the consciousness in others. Gold is the color of courage and opportunity of wealth. Creative arts, master craftsman expressing divinity and wisdom through their creations. The face of the flower follows the Sun gathering the fire of creativity, illuminating harmony and balance, resonating peace and continuity within the human spirit. This is the Sign of the Chalice of the Infinite, Caldron of Creation.

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!
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.
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
