THE WIND/IK TRECENA IS DEDICATED TO MINISA CRUMBO HALSEY, 1 IK (eek)
Minisa Crumbo, Dawnwoman, shares her Breath of Spirit in her book “Spirit Talk: a count of days“ that was the encouragement to write a journal. Minisa holds the Inheritance of Marcellus “Bear Heart” Williams, the Uncle who raised her up on the traditional path of the shaman. The rich accounting of the way he was taught is written in “The Wind is my Mother.” Minisa also draws on the Wisdom of the Sacred Pottawatomie tradition of her heritage, holding the Wisdom of the Sacred words of the Pottawatomie passed to her from Donald Perrot, Member and Elder of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 8 is the Number of “Pure Spirit,” and the Holy Day of the trecena. Tone 8 represents the 8th Hour of Solar Light when the Sun resides in its zenith. The 12 Tones are related to the hours of Solar Light between the Dawn at 5AM to Sunset at 5PM. On Tone 8 we receive the Highest Illumination from Above.
Offering/MULUC is the Day Sign that guides our Highest Application of Spirit, to Exist as a Living Sacrifice to the Creator. MULUC guides a way of Atonement, Oneness with the Creator, through the Movement of Giving Back and Paying Forward the Blessings we’ve drawn to our Self. MULUC offers the way to Magnify our own Light by Being the Vessel for the Creator to shine through.
MULUC is a symbol of Water that holds the Element of Fire, representing Water everywhere from the Cosmos to our own Tears as the Blessing of Holy Water. Through our Emotions, the Creator is capable to touch our Hearts and Minds. Through the Heart we can Know our Oneness with a Creator of Unconditional Love. MULUC brings a Gift of Divine Love that can Heal our Emotions as our Consciousness is raised to their Higher Purpose. Only in Oneness with the Creator can we see how Suffering Led us to the Experience of the Creator’s Love. Only broken, can our Human Being Know the Divine Miracle carried out Above.
ZENITH: The zenith is an imaginary point directly “above” a particular location, on the imaginary celestial sphere. “Above” means in the vertical direction opposite to the apparent gravitational force at that location. The opposite direction, i.e. the direction in which gravity pulls, is toward the nadir. The zenith is the “highest” point on the celestial sphere. (Wikipedia)
8 Offering/MULUC begins the Transformation phase of this trecena. Our phase of Spiritual Growth is balanced by a Transformation carried out through an equal effort of a Divine Agency that Intervenes on our behalf to complete the Miracle beyond our Human limitation. Each new transformation builds on the Higher Ground of the Last. Offering/MULUC is the Day Sign that guided our last trecena. We Ascended on 13 Star/LAMAT in Consciousness of our Oneness and our Divine Destiny to Rise and Shine as a Star, the Scion – first Descendants of a Divine Creator, all first in Line for an Inheritance of Divinity. 8 MULUC will help us claim our Inheritance by a Healing of our emotions.
The suffering of our Heart is the result of our own imbalance of polarization, the pull between gravity of the world in our reach for the Light Above. The Power Above is greater than all things below. Today we can be free of suffering made possible by an Atonement that can lift us Above the gravity of the world Below. As we feel the Freedom of our Highest Atonement, we are able to let go of an attachment to how things look in the world through the eyes of our Human physicality. It no longer matters what happens Below, we have a Light of Illumination to see the Reality of Spirit.
All we need to heal all our Suffering is to Know the Creator’s Light is a Real Force in our Life, Higher and Greater than anything that could ever hold us down. The Creator made it this way on purpose to demonstrate the Power of a Divine Promise, that no matter how dark things might seem, there would always be a Greater power Above.
Today, the Illumination we received in the Offering/MULUC trecena, the Gift in our Shared Creation of Sacred Ceremony at Ek’ Balam, is raised into the Light of its Highest Illumination. It is raised above the gravity of the world that would hold it down. We claimed the Dream of a Heavenly Agency of Light Workers working together on our behalf from the “otherside.” Today, the Hope we held in a Sacred Ceremony is lifted to its zenith of Highest Illumination. We are transformed by Faith turned into Believing.
The MULUC glyph symbolizes the Savior in all of us when we raise our selves up above the Whole to be Offered as a Living Sacrifice. It shows one drop of water suspended above the Whole. We raise our Self up through the Sacrifice of bearing the Suffering for the Whole. Our Offering was to Love One Another, to rise Above the injustice we impose on one another in our suffering as Human Beings. Our Gift is to accept the blame for seeing one another as beyond worthy of an Offering that was meant for all of us. We accept these as our Darkest Thoughts and the very gravity that holds us down. We lift ourselves up to be Seen as the Brokenness of Humanity, to Receive the Divine Forgiveness that holds the Power to Heal us all. Through a single drop of all the water in the world, from the cosmos to our tears, One Sacrifice, One Drop of Atonement with the Creator, holds the Power to send Ripples of Divine Forgiveness through the whole.
The greatest Blessing that any Human can offer the Whole is the sacrifice of our Emotions that were attached to an elevation of our position in the world below. We rise Above the world below, as we see that Every Treasure of our Divine Blessing is a Gift from Above. We can let go of all the Dreams that lead to a finite blessing that could only be experienced while we are alive on Earth, to claim the Blessing that will last through eternity.
We can finally be freed of all our suffering, when we see the transitory nature of our worldly experience. What is happening in the world below no longer has to matter, when we see how the Sacrifice is Seen through the Creator’s eyes. We are Atoned as we place every experience of living in the Creator’s hands, the Hands that hold the Authority of a Divine Promise of our Transformation to Light. Our Suffering can become the Gifts we bring in Faith of that Promise.
As Human we hope for a transformation that happens all at once. We fail to consider that Time was created for the purpose of Seeing the Transformation. We saw the transformation of a Human effort. We see our Human limitation that was not enough to change the Whole, so we could see the Transformation that is only possible by a Miracle Above. Under the Tone 8 of Pure Spirit, our Faith will be Raised to Believing through a total surrender of Human Power.
Yesterday was a New Moon in Scorpio. There was an astronomical movement of our zenith and the Nodes of the Moon into Cancer and Capricorn. Aligned with the energies of the Winter Season on Earth, we will withdraw from the world to reside in our Home within. We may feel the pull of changing directions as forecast for the month of November. The transformation of our Atonement with the Creator will see us through as we are shifted into a new way of Being in the world. Our Offering for Paying Back and Paying Forward can be the release of our old way into the hands of the Creator, Believing in a New Beginning that was already planned from Above.
Atoned with the Creator our offering is the Dross that is Burned away by the Zenith Light of Offering/MULUC. Capricorn moving into the position of the South Node reflects Powers on Earth. Positioned as the Gravity Below, beneath us reflects the abuse of Power used in a worldly way for Personal Advantage. Cancer, residing in the Zenith, holds the Love of Home and Family. Through a Higher Calling to exist as One in a Divine Family, our own Light can zenith the Darkness Below. Our Atonement with the Creator draws to us the Power of Light that will Illuminate the Darkness and burn it away. The Seed of our New Self will be made imperishable, perfected by the Light in the Breath of Spirit and the Breath of Life.
The Cherokee Day Sign is The River that invites us to jump in, sacrificing our Self to the Divine Flow of Spirit. The River is a symbol of all the Divine Spirits of Human that are held as Ether in the Element of all the Water in the Cosmos to the Tears raised by our Emotions. By the Power of the Creator, may we see how the Gravity of the World was designed by the Creator to draw us all back together again, where together as One we will all be raised to the Light Above, the Light that holds the Authority of Creation.
To all my relations, on this Holy Day for a Human Offering, may we place our whole lives in the Hands of the Creator. May we be the Human that gives up a Dream that would end our suffering to accept the suffering as our own Divine Mission, suffering that we were given the Illumination to Transform by Believing in our Destiny of Light. May we not run away from the darkness in fear, but stand up to it in the Light of our Own Illumination. May we find the Inner Strength to Stand on the promise of Atonement, the Blessing of Seeing how our Sacrifice is seen through the Creator’s eyes. We are born into a new Spirit of Consciousness. May we know that even Higher States of Consciousness will be opened to us through our Forgiveness of the Darkness of the Whole. May we no longer the fear the darkness of the injustice that as Humans we impose on one another, and see it for what it is – a Cry from the Heart for the Unconditional Love that only a Divine Creator can bring. May we allow the Creator to transform us into a Savior of Divine Light that zeniths the Darkness and Gravity of the suffering Below.
May we initiate ourselves into Divine Service as a Human Savior. May we carry our prayers to the Altar and place a symbol of our Self with the Fire that Burns there and carries the Smoke of our Prayers to the Creator Above. May we offer to this a Blessing of Water as the One Drop of the Whole that, through Atonement with the Creator will hold the Power to Heal the Hearts of the Whole and lead us to our Destiny of Eternal Love. May we uphold one another in the Divine Light of our Prayers. May we draw within to prepare the Womb of Spirit where a new Seed of our Self will be planted to germinate and grow into a New Harvest of Spirit. May we exist in the Magic of the Jaguar’s Gratitude for all the Heavenly Host, Divine Agents, Ascended Saints, Angels, and the Love of the Creator whose Power and Divine Intention Zeniths the Darkness of a world below. May we be drawn like the tides into the Whole, preparing the new Light we will bring to back to the shore.
in lak’ech, i am another you

8 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The River is the “Fountain of Life” and represents the fluid of the cosmos to fluids in the body, with the energy to clear all karmic debts, personally and on a mass level with fluidity and grace. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
