THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 10 is the day of Manifestation. What is focused on with Intention becomes real with 10. Tone 10 is a Blessing and Responsibility. To Manifest anything, we have to Claim it.
Wisdom/CIB is the Day Sign that reflects a mind in its Highest State of Consciousness. The glyph illustrations the mind, emanating the rays of Light as Consciousness and Forgiveness.
CIB is the Day Sign that honors the Ascended Ones who preserved the Sacred Wisdom as our Spiritual Inheritance. All that we are capable to Know was made possible by the Higher Ground preserved as our Beginning.
CIB connects us to the Old Ones to remind us that we all walk this same path. It takes all of us to complete the journey that transforms the Whole. The whole of our Wisdom and Consciousness was made possible by Divine Truths the Old Ones preserved for us.
Tone 10 can present a challenge. We have to use our Discernment to see the change. Tone 10 is often a day when we’re presented with an old scenario, only to discover that we see it in a wholly new way. Today we see how, by following a path of Vigilance, we can discern our own Direction of Love. We’ve gained the Consciousness of our thoughts, so they can be directed by Intention. When we learn to push away our negative thoughts, we are no longer ruled by our emotions. We can follow the One Truth our heart knows when we’re cleared of the Illusions of our Ego.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Owl, described as the “mystic ferryman that holds the torch aloft” to light the journey to the other side. The Owl is a nuhaul of Wisdom. CIB is the day when the student is ready and the teacher appears.
The Wisdom of the Old Ones can help us to see Truth as they now see it, as a matter of fact. The Old Ones created our Wisdom of Common Sense. They created the basic tenants of Right Relationship for us long before, leaving the Guiding Light of the Golden Rule. CIB guides us away from the Discernment we make from our Ego with the Simple Instructions to “Choose Wisely.” Most all our dilemmas can be resolved by this Simple Intention of Wisdom. For all that is Unknown, Human Will Know the next Wise thing to do.
When we take “right or wrong” out of our discernment, when we turn away from the knee-jerk response of our Ego, we will always see a Wise Way to proceed. We have to want to look for it. Holding the Ether that connects us to the Power of the Creator’s Love, our Heart is prepared for this.
The Highest Wisdom passed down from one generation to the next is the Truth of Forgiveness and Unconditional Love. What we haven’t Forgiven doesn’t receive our Unconditional Love. Unconditional Love is Divine, beyond Human’s ability to carry out when we are so quick to see the fault in another. When we’ve assigned blame outside of our Self, we can’t draw our own Wisdom from the experience. Only Love leads us to the Truth.
CIB reminds us of the archeological treasures that lie within. As Time Travelers, we can go back to every experience to learn something we missed the first time. Many of our problems could be resolved, just by applying what we’ve learned. Think how Wise we’d be, if we only followed our own advice.
CIB resides in the South, the direction of our Relationships with one another and the Natural World. As the Wisdom of all the Humans who rose to their Highest State of Consciousness, CIB knows the Truth that our experience of “injustice” is always our own Creation. Our success never relies on what another Human does, but on a Promise of what the Creator can do.
We don’t see things clearly when we haven’t forgiven. When we’re engaged in thoughts of our resentments, we won’t have the Wisdom to lead anyone. Leading with the Truth of Harmony and Equity, we’ll Know that we ALL fail our Highest Intentions. We are no better able to carry out our Intentions of Love than anyone else. Our Lack of Love is evidenced by our own judgement of someone else as “right or wrong.” The Mayan priest walks the Higher Road of Unconditional Love.
Forgiveness is an Act of Divinity. Forgiveness holds the power to shape-shift us into our Divine Nature. When someone Forgives us, we know they’ve seen us worthy of Love, beyond our limitation. We see Divinity through a gift contrary to our Human Nature. We Sense something Divine in the experience of One Human Forgiving Another.
Forgiving someone else is a Divine Intention that blesses both sides. Few exchanges of Forgiveness are carried out without Both Sides saying they are sorry. When our mind is opened to forgive, we’ll see there was injustice on both sides. When we forgive, we hold the Wisdom to see that the injustice inflicted by those around us wasn’t intentional. The injustice we impose is a breakdown, a failure of a Higher Intention. If we look Honestly at the Truth, we’re no better at upholding our own Highest Intentions. Why do we fail? We fail because we forget Love. The only way to heal the suffering of our ego, is to know we’re all in this together. We’re all suffering to Know Love. Love is all we need to rise to our Highest State of Consciousness. Forgiveness means we will go on Loving.
Our Relationships with one another are healed through the Consciousness of our Common Struggle. When we Forgive, we see past the illusion of “us” and “them.” Forgiveness is the Blessing we see as our own Salvation, a second chance for Love to be Seen in us. Forgiveness is the closest thing to Unconditional Love that human is capable to give. God’s Love never saw the fault. Human Forgiveness is Divine as “seeing the fault” yet Choosing to Forgive. Forgiveness always returns us to Right Relationship. When someone sees the Light in Us, we Know it was seen by the Light in them.
My Grandma Naomi used to say, “You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.” All the Wisdom of Love passed down to us was foundational to our direction of Love. A path was left for us, as the Golden Rules of Right Relationship.
To all my relations, may we See and Acknowledge the Light that was left for us to follow. May we see how Forgiveness can Light a way to Human Consciousness of the Creator. May we see how Forgiveness turns away negativity and the illusions of our Ego. Instead of shining a light on human failure, may we shine a Light on an Intention of Human’s Divine Nature. May we remember that the injustice inflicted from both sides is a symptom of our common suffering to Know Love. May we see how easy it is to Forgive AND Forget, when we see the failure on Both Sides. May we stand on the Common Sense that Loving and Forgiving is always the Wise thing to do.

10 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. A good day to sit on a rock.
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ : Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritative. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.
