MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 7 is the place of Balancing the “As Above, So Below.” Tone 7 is a place of an accounting to see “all that is, and all that is not.” The top of the pyramid illustrates the Peak of our Climb.
Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and Spirit, the Element of Air that relates to all the faculties of the mind. Air is the Element that connects us all. Through the Air the Spoken Words of the Creator manifested the Whole of Creation. The Element of Air reflects the fundamentals of our way to manifest Creation.
Our world is wholly a mental construct. Our entire experience of life on Earth is defined by our Perception of the Creation. We define the parameters of our own Happiness by the way we See it. When we Speak what we See in our mind, we manifest a Creation defined by our own Perception. We make it come true.
Our Breath is Sacred. Through Sacred Breath we Breathe and are Breathed by the Creator. Completing the 10th uinal of Manifestation, our Spiritual Eyes were opened to see that what we Claim is True is the substance of every Creation. Our Power to Manifest the Dream lies in what we Say is So.
Human is Empowered to become a Conscious Creator through a process of Transformation that raises our Consciousness to the Truth that we are the Masters of our own Experience on Mother Earth. It’s something we can’t see with our Human eyes, which measures the experience by an assessment of a material reality. When we’re told we can move mountains, and that our world is exactly what we created it to be, we first look to the physicality of our world.
In the whole deliberation of this Truth, I have looked around myself at the physical construct of my reality, wondering how I could possibly have created all this. Doesn’t this mean I imagined the car I’m driving and this route of passage from one place to another? Does it mean I manifested my own living room furniture in my mind? We at least manifested our perception of what we choose to drive, and what we dragged in the door based on our perception of its beauty, utility, or economy.
At the top of the pyramid we arrive at the altar that exists closest to the sky. Tone 7 is the Tone of Reflection. In the Highest Position between the Above and the Below we stand in the Balancing. Everything we See and Claim Below is Manifested Above. Everything we See and Claim Above is Manifested Below. Through Free Will, we Choose the realm from which we claim our Truth.
We Manifest what we Claim is True. What we Claim is Manifested by what we See in our Imagination. The Whole of Creation is drawn from our Mind.
The Wisdom/CIB trecena is a cycle of Higher Learning guided by the Ascended Masters. Our Thoughts are Connected to the Wisdom of the Old Ones. The Teachings of the Elders were presented through their stories and their physical demonstration of Communion with Mother Earth. In the Season of Harvest the Elders taught the lesson of “picking in a good way.” The Elders taught us a way of honoring ALL life by Acknowledging the Sacred Exchange, and by extending the Consciousness of Right Relationship. We create a world of Beauty when we are Conscious of every living thing.
To learn about picking, we were set to the task of gathering herbs. We were guided to approach them, asking to be guided to those who were prepared and ready to sacrifice themselves. We would first ask permission. If the stem we chose didn’t immediately give way, we would honor that this plant wasn’t ready. We would take only what we need in a thoughtful way. We See and Acknowledge that something that is living will give its life for us.
This Sacred Way of “picking” is used just the same in the produce section of the grocery store. We are thoughtful to look first and Honor the presence of Life and Consciousness in what is before us. I learned to make a commitment when I touch a piece of produce, the commitment that I have chosen it as mine. This way changes our relationship with our food. It’s very hard to throw away an unused piece of produce when you’ve claimed its Life was Given for your own. There is so much bounty in the world that is thrown away, all because we take more than we really need. Picking in this way, I feel obligated to take at least one bite to Honor the sacrifice that was made. Creating this relationship with our food, we manifest the Intention to be more thoughtful of our Blessings and the Resources of Mother Earth.
In small, indiscernible ways, these traditions of Ritual and Sacred Honoring raise our Consciousness to the Sacred Exchange of Spirit that is manifested through the mind.
If you have trouble believing that the world is a mental construct, you may be taking things too literally. An Application of Higher Consciousness allows us to see the world as a Living Story being told by the Creator. The Mountains we are moving are the ones that exist in our own mind. Our Transformation, the shift of our consciousness, is manifested when we realize that Mother Earth is the Creator’s Story of Creation. Mother Earth is the stage where Earth is raised up as a Voice of a Story Being Told from the realm of Ether.
Imagine this. You are in a small room. All 4 walls are painted white. There are no windows and only one door. Within this room is the potential to create anything on the other side of the door. Even the purpose of our presence there is wholly up to our imagination. From a room that looks the same to everyone in the realm of physicality, the potential for everything exists from one Human thought to another. One might experience it as a holding cell, a last outpost to the danger that lies beyond the door. Another could imagine it as a waiting room between an old world and a new one, and that Beauty lies on the other side. We create similar realities of perception every day.
In every movement and every communication, we project a reality that we’ve claimed first in our mind. When we approach someone and we hold a resentment or suspicion, our Truth is created from a construct of thought. No matter how we might try to hide the Truth of our thoughts in the material world, our Truth is projected in the realm of Spirit. Between one mind and another, we see the Truth whether we are conscious to claim it or not. Something doesn’t add up. When we approach someone in the Intention of sharing our Unconditional Love, so is that Truth projected in Spirit. The Human mind together with all our Spiritual Gifts “Knows” the difference when Love is given in sincerity. We manifest the experiences we already projected through our imagination.
We were all given the same Gift of Beauty in Mother Earth. She is beautiful enough to support any experience of Loving Life that we could imagine. She is the living illustration of the Beauty that the Creator intended to manifest as our Experience. We could focus on any aspect of her from the macro to the micro to become Conscious of the Love that was held in the mind of the Creator to manifest such endless Beauty.
All these Gifts of Creation were shared with Human. The Breath of Life and Breath of Creation are held in the Power of the Conscious Mind. We can Speak to the Creation that only our Human eyes can see, or we can Choose a Reality of Consciousness that we have the Power to Create in our own mind.
The Earth is a living Story of Creation waiting to be told by us. We have so much more than 4 blank walls from which to draw Our Story of Creation. We were given Beauty in every direction. Mother Earth is the Creator’s vision of Love all around us, Created to Inspire our own thoughts of Beauty as our Experience of Life on Earth.
Human’s experience of Beauty is the physical story of Love. Beauty stops us in our tracks. When we see something beautiful, we want nothing more than to be included in the photograph, to remind us we were there and that we saw it with our own eyes. The experience is Whole within itself. We expect nothing more than to be present in the moment. When we are Conscious of Earth’s Beauty we wonder at it as the evidence of a Divine Hand of Creation.
In our Eternal Presence with Mother Earth, the only thing that stands between our experience of Beauty ALL the Time, is the Application of our own Consciousness. There is always more than enough Beauty for us to Claim that “Life is Beautiful.”
We could look to the Beauty of our Seed that will be held in the Fruit of our Spiritual Harvest. The new Seed of our Self is a new generation in our Human Perception of Life, One Another, and the Natural World where we live. Everything in the world that a Supreme Creator manifested holds to the same Truth down to the smallest details. The Principle of “As Above, So Below” is the Great Law of Creation that is True down to the smallest Elements of Nature. It is even True in the Human body. What is manifested from the “head” (the Ethereal Above), becomes the experience of the “body” (the material Below).
So can we Consciously experience the top of the pyramid as the place that connects the Above and the Below. The Maya imagined the top of the pyramid as the place where Earth meets Sky, and a pyramid Below is a mirror-reflection of a pyramid Above. What we see Above is what will be reflected Below.
The top of the pyramid is the place where the Jaguar waits at the threshold between the dimensions of a Spiritual and Material Reality. Jaguar manifests Creation through the Earth Magic of Gratitude. Jaguar sees ALL the Beauty of Mother Earth as the place from which we can Leap into our own Creation of Beauty – Inspired by the Beauty Below to Create a Reality of Beauty from the realm Above.
We are offered an opportunity by Wind/IK to Speak the Creation that will be manifested by a new Seed of our Self, a Seed that holds a Higher Consciousness of our Power to Create the Love that would be our own Experience of Living. At the top of the pyramid the veil is drawn back to reveal the illusions from the world below don’t matter. Each Human was given their own Sovereign Power of Creation. Only we hold the Power over our own Consciousness and the world we imagine in the realm of Spirit. We will become the new generation of Ascended Masters when we Claim the Truth we are the Masters of a Creation we manifest in our mind.
We become Wise when we are Conscious that the world created by Humanity will offer an unlimited number of “stories of creation.” Only through our own Vigilant Consciousness of the Power of our own Thoughts, can we Claim the Truth of our own Story. If we don’t pay any attention at all, the world is ready and willing to tell us that our happiness lies in manifesting a mountain of physical matter, stuff we can experience through all our physical senses. We could spend a lifetime attempting to gather more and more stuff that we don’t need, never even acknowledging the Sacrifice it represents to another living thing.
Wind/IK holds the power to change the landscape of our lives. Through the thoughts that exist as in the Breath of our own Air, we can change the entire landscape of our Human experience on Earth. The Cherokee Day Sign, the Whirlwind, is the double-helix that carries the smoke of our prayers to the Creator. The Whirlwind symbolizes the Ascended One, the 13th Dancer that exists Above in the Realm of Spirit, that leads the steps of the 12 Dancers Below. 13 is the Number of Ascension, the Promise of Covenant by the Creator to Intervene on our behalf whenever we call to Spirit through our Prayers and Sacred Ceremonies.
To all my relations, may we contemplate the reality that we create in our mind, and the Truth we See and Claim is manifested as the Perception of our Experience. May we see Mother Earth as the Garden of Bountiful Beauty that was place all around us, a Divine Harvest from which we Choose our Experience. May we Choose our own Reality, just as we Pick in a Sacred Way from the Garden. May we accept only what is offered freely from one another, Honoring the Right to Choose on both sides. May we Acknowledge Beauty when we see it. May we see beyond the material images of all creations to the application of thought that created it. May we acknowledge the physical effort that we invest every day in creating a life that offers more than just survival. May we Acknowledge the Dream in every thing. May we be Conscious of the words we speak, and realign our words when they don’t reflect the Truth we would Choose to Create. At the altar at the top of the pyramid, may we place our Human Offering of Intention of Creation. May we release it in one Last Leap of Faith in the Above. May we call upon Divine Intervention to complete our Creation by manifesting the world we hold in our Imagination. May we claim that all the Beauty we see around us is a manifestation of Love as a Living Creation, through which we can hold a Personal Relationship and experience the Creator’s own Dream of Love manifested through the Whole. At the Top of the Pyramid, may we Acknowledge the Truth that we are Creators, and take a Leap of Faith into the realm of Spirit to manifest our Dream from the Up Above. May we Give Thanks that the Creator “Picked Us” in a Sacred way so the Choice could be our own.
In lak’ech, I am another you

THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE – I’m grateful that manifesting the Creation of our Dream is as simple as changing our mind and what we Choose to See.

7 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
Wind/IK: Breath of Spirit, breath of life. Winds embody the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. Dreamers and planners with powerful imaginations, Wind persons make great orators and they spread the word of spiritual inspiration as it is carried by the wind. Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change. As the wind, these persons are extremely changeable and adaptable. They may appear inconsistent or fickle to others. Wind can be destructive to self and others by putting on airs. When Winds strut and boast, expanding on facts and accomplishments, they are building the dark clouds of trouble that may become hurricanes.
Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA: Whirlwind’s symbol is a double spiral helix in rising smoke. Wind brings energy for an Inquiring mind, learning and wisdom. In Cherokee, the constellations are represented by 12 birds (dancers), the 13th bird is the Whirlwind, the lead dancer. This reflects the whirling of life. Wind is the breath of the Universe (matching the Mayan symbol) channel of communication and carries the Sacred Smoke to the Great Spirit (Source- Hunab Ku in Mayan); matches the pulse of the breath of the Cosmos.

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
