MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Today, Tone 3 helps us Bring Life to the Dream of our Highest Hope. The Eagle/MEN trecena is drawing us toward the completion of the 12th uinal and the comprehension of a New and Higher Understanding of our Power to Create our own world of Experience.
Tone 3 is the first day of a new Movement of Intention, carried out as a physical movement or the breath of communication. Movement and Breath of Intention create a new Vibration. The frequency of our Vibration is established by the Height of our Intention. A Divine Creator resonates the Highest Vibration of Unconditional Love, the “pure love” given for the “Sake of Love.”
The “pure love” given to us by a Divine Creator is reflected in the first gift of Mother Earth. A Living World of Love was the gift that awaited the Dawn of our Awakening. Her Beauty would inspire us to create the Dreams we imagined in darkness. Imagine the first day we were born, emerging from darkness to a place of Light, Color, and an Embrace we Experienced directly from the Voice we heard in our Dreams. We were Seen and Acknowledged as we were finally Here and Now for a new experience of living.
Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth, the arms that hold us in the Divine Love of Harmony and Equity. Our Divine Mother loves us all the same. As the One Source of everything we could Know about this Divine Creation, every Human Spirit was Blessed with the same Unlimited Possibilities of Being.
CABAN is a Sign of Divine Movement directed by something greater than our Self. The Creator’s gift of Mother Earth was the Movement that Created Time through which we could see and discern the dynamic experience of Darkness transforming to Light. Through the Movement of Mother Earth, Human could see the Sunrise and know that each day offered its own new beginning. Every day of our Life offers a new opportunity to begin a Creation that starts and ends with Unconditional Love. Time allows Human to see the Truth that we are Creators, and One in a Divine Movement that can make our Dreams come true.
Today, the Power of our Movement is magnified as Tone 3 and Earth/CABAN share the same Intention. The Cherokee Day Sign, the Heron lives its whole life in a movement of migration, always moving on to a next possibility. The Aztec Ollin, the symbol that resides at the center of the Aztec stone calendar, simply means Movement – marking 20 Divine Movements of the All-in-One. The Face at the center is K’inich Ahau, defining the Ahau by the aspect of Divine Illumination.
K’inich Ahau makes its appearance at the “Seating of the New Mam.” This is the moment that the Wayeb has ended, when the period of retreat has finished and we can emerge from our “cave” back into the real world.
The Wayeb is the Haab month of 5 days, the 19th and last month before the beginning of the Haab New Year, and the seating of the new Year Bearer. No Day Sign is in charge during these 5 days. The Maya observe the Wayeb as a time to stay close to home to finish loose ends of the year, and to provide the same service to neighbors in the community.
Maybe that explains the fierce expression of a Creator, as one announcing to the world the new Year Bearer put in charge of carrying out the next planetary Intentions for Mother Earth under the Almighty Authority of her Creation.
Ollin comes with the guidance that this is a “lucky” day for the “active principle” and “unlucky” for the “passive principle.” This is not a day to “go along” with influences outside of our Self, but a Day to Move in our Own Intention with all our Heart. Ollin is said to offer the Gift to See what we are becoming.
The K’iche Day Sign for CABAN is No’j, representing the whole of Knowledge and Understanding that can be drawn from our Divine Mother.
No’j is a Sacred Word to the K’iche Maya (pronouced no’ h – ending in almost a silent “ha” in the throat), representing human’s capacity of intelligence and what the K’iche know are the gifts and virtues, presents of the Ajaw (Ahau, the Supreme Creator). No’j is the Gift of our ever-elevating Transformation of Consciousness. This is Spiritual Gift to engage with the Light of the Sunrise of new Beginnings. Nobility is the major virtue brought by the energy of No’j, in particular, patience, prudence, cautiousness and Love from Higher Dimensions.
No’j is the Gift to Human that makes Human Divinity possible on Mother Earth. No’j is a gift of Miracles. Through the Movement of Mother Earth, we experience the Breath of Creation from all four directions. The Maya recognized four gods of the winds and the directions, the Bacabs, as upholding the 4 corners of the world.
“In Yucatec Maya they (the Bacabs) are known as Muluc (of the east), Kan (of the south), Ix (of the north), and Cauac (of the west). Together they generate the balance of negative and positive energy that enabled the gods to create Human Beings and the physical and non-physical realms of being. They are associated with the deities Acat, Akna, Backlum Chamm, and Chin.” (Ancient History Encyclopedia – The Maya Pantheon: The Many Gods of the Maya)
The Wind that Blows from East to West balances the Power of Creation. Divine Inspiration directed to the place of the Unknown awakens the Dream we would Create as our Future.
Our Movement generated by the Winds of the East flow with the Divine Power of the Creator’s Inspiration. Our first Movement from an Ascension of Wind/IK can be to ASK the Creator to be the Source of the Wind beneath our Wings. We can Manifest our Highest Aspiration by holding the Vision in our Imagination and allowing the Easterly Wind to carry us in the right direction.
The MULUC trecena prepared us for this Flight through the Intention of Offering our Self and our Dreams into the Creator’s Hands. Our Divine Justice was Atonement, for Paying Back and Paying Forward the Gift of a Mind of Divine Consciousness. We’re carried by the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit, when we offer our Highest Aspirations. When we allow “what will be” by Divine Will, nothing beyond the Creator holds an authority over our direction.
The Eagle/MEN trecena is teaching us to fly on the Wings of Spirit. Like the Eagle, we don’t need to reason the way. We don’t need to figure out any details for the journey. We only need to focus on a Dream of Divine Intention for the Wind of the East to carry us there. This is the Leap of Faith that Eagle/MEN encourages us to make toward our Highest Hopes and Aspirations, to Believe in the Wind beneath our Wings. Our Intention of Faith can be that no matter where this wind may carry us, every experience is Intended as “on the way” to our Divine Creation of a Dream held in our Heart.
The Creator always Knows what we need and when we need it. Earth/CABAN raises our Consciousness to the Movement of Mother Earth that was Directed from Above so that we would always end up in the Light. The Creator dreamed the Spiritual Harvest of every season. The Creator sees the Fruit of our Divine Intentions on the vine. We are raised up by the Eagle to see the Earth as the Creator can see it. The Breath of the Creator, flowing in the same direction as the Breath of our own Creation generates the altitude for an even Higher View of the Dream of our Future. With the Consciousness to accept All that Is we are prepared to take Flight on a direct path without any obstacles from Point A to Point B.
We are entering the Season of Miracles. This is a time of year when we celebrate the Miracles of Home, Love and a Divine Family. In my own life, this has always been a season of High Hopes and Expectations. It grew from faith in the Birth of a Savior, and even the promises of Santa Claus. There were times as a single parent, that I wondered how Santa would make his appearance. Sometimes, these were the saddest moments of all, sitting alone at night before the Tree of Lights. There were times when even the Christmas Carols played at the grocery store were enough to bring me to tears. Yet, holding out Hope, the Love of those around me ALWAYS brought the Miracle in unexpected ways.
As the experiences of life moved on, I carried this Expectation to new Heights, believing in a Gift of Higher Inspiration. There has never been a year when I wasn’t surprised by a Revelation of Light just before the New Year. Being the Eagle who looks into the future, I see that the Winter Solstice (December 21, 2018) falls on 11 Monkey/CHUEN. 11 CHUEN promises our First Resolution from the Dawn of our New Awakening under the trecena of 1 Crocodile/IMIX, the place where it will all begin again in the womb. On Christmas Eve, the “Santa Gift” delivered to our Tree will come from 1 Jaguar/IX, the beginning of our first journey of experience in the world we are creating Now. Following the footsteps left under the Tree, the Jaguar will offer the Gifts of Spirit that our Human eyes Will See.
The New Year marked on the Haab begins 02/20/2019, under the Year Bearer 7 Road/EB, in the Galactic Week of the Transformer/CIMI. The planetary cycle ahead will be guided by the Balancing of the Above and the Below for the Journey to our Divine Destiny. CIMI marks the conception for a New Birth, and the Death of a Life we once knew. Looking even further, the planetary cycle ahead leads us to the next New Year on 02/20/20, conceived by the Dog/OC of Unconditional Love, born through 8 Earth/CABAN – a Holy Year of Divine Consciousness and a Holy Year of Divine Justice under the Number 8 of “pure spirit” and a Zenith of Light. May we remember what we’re moving toward and form the image in our Imagination Now for the Promises carved in stone, that will be revealed in the future by their own Divine Synchronicity that Human eyes will see, living on Mother Earth.
May we Believe in This Sacred Time that was Created by the Movement of the Creator’s Breath of Creation. May we take flight toward a Dream that will be our first Gift to a new “I Am.” May we seize the opportunity to begin a new world of our Creation in Love that the Creator will see through from the beginning to the end. May we Dream of the first Light of Love that will Illuminate the Beauty of Mother Earth, and Unlimited Possibilities of Life in Love with Her as we have never seen it before.
To all my relations, may we start from the Highest branch we can find to see as far as we can. May we Believe in our own Highest Hopes and Aspirations as the Dreams the Creator hoped we would choose. Out of all the possible Dreams we considered on Tone 2, may we Choose the One that was most beautiful, the one we were tempted to fly away from because it was the “impossible Dream.” The “impossible” dream of our Highest Aspiration was drawn to our Heart by Divine Inspiration. May we Know what a special Time and Place this is, when every Human is being inspired to Dream again of the Love we first knew. May we ask the Creator to be an Intermediary of Light, to be One in the Flow that can lift us ALL. May this be the Dream we hold in the Tzolk’in’s final Ascension of Transformation, so it may be the first Dream of Consciousness at the Dawn of our New Awakening. May we take the Leap of Faith on the Wings of our Highest Hopes, Asking the Creator that our Highest Hopes be Transformed into Believing.
There is Power in following traditions and in using the Language and Breath spoken by the Humans so long before our Time. I felt the Power in attempting to speak the local languages on my trip to the Yucatan. It was a gift of Unconditional Love, that even in my failures, elevated the Communion of Spirits. The words were so beautiful, I’ve found myself still using them after returning home. The words of forgiveness, “Lo Siento” were among my favorites – words of “I’m Sorry” that actually translate to “I Feel.” May we share our Spoken Words of Gratitude to Mother Earth with the Sacred Word used by the Ascended Mayan Ancestors, whispering thanks to the Mother for the Gifts of No’j. May we Honor the Sacred Word that symbolizes the Communion of Love between every living thing, through the softness of a language of the Heart.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Eagle/MEN trecena.
3 Earth Caban (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
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 and perpetual motion, 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 Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.
