1 Sun / AHAU – A Revelation of Light: Day 1 of 13


1 Sun / AHAU

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13-Days…

Sun/AHAU is the Lord of the Tzolk’in, and the Supreme Lord of Creation. AHAU is the Light of Illumination, the Source of Life, Light and Happiness.

Life is trained to the Sun, to Live and Create in the Light. When Sun appears we can expect a Revelation, an Enlightenment, or an Epiphany.

AHAU is a Day of “Darkness.” Yellow and White Day Signs are “Dark” marking a day or cycle for the Application of Wisdom. Humans are binary creatures who comprehend by learning and doing. Deer/MANIK was a cycle of “Light,” incoming Inspiration that inspired a Meaning and Purpose for Living. Human’s Divine Mission was guided by Deer, the Mayan priest, who serves the Whole through Vigilant Consciousness, leading by example in the Humility of Love.

The Deer inspired us to be a Living Sacrifice, to bear the suffering of injustice for a Divine Reason. Creating Love as our Offering, we would always be Atoned – At One in the Creator’s Love. Deer offered the Wisdom of Inspiration. Sun/AHAU will guide the Wisdom of an Experience.

It is Right and Good that Sun/AHAU will be our Companion on our first journey as the Deer. The first thing we can know is that every journey of the Deer, our Divine Meaning and Purpose, would be shared by the Creator. The Tzolk’in was a path that was Created for us to share the Sacred Event of each day.

Sun/AHAU holds the Authority over all the calendars. They can steal a natural calendar and force us to follow the “man-made” time of the Gregorian calendar, but NO ONE will ever separate us from the Authority of the Light.

AHAU is the Master of Everything. Holding the Consciousness of Unlimited Possibilities, AHAU is the Source of Genius for anything. AHAU connects us to the Collective Wisdom of the Above and the Below. AHAU brings the Brightest Illumination to all things.

The Sun/AHAU trecena will build the Wisdom of Experience, Serving as the Hand of God. We will be guided by the Highest Authority, the Omega, the All-in-One. The Promise from the Beginning is 13 Road/EB, an Ascension of our Divine Destiny.

The 3rd Uinal
1 Sun/AHAU completes the 2nd Uinal of the Tzolk’in. In the harvest cycle of the 260-day Tzolk’in round, we are completing our germination. We made our way through the darkness underground. In the 3rd Uinal of 20-days, we’ve reached the Light. Number 3 holds an Intention of Movement. We are moving in a new world. One sprout looks much like another. We will create who we are by Intention.

Holy Day: 8 Deer/MANIK
Tone 8 represents the Highest Illumination of Solar Light, the hour of the zenith. Most of the festivals and Sacred Ceremonies are observed on Tone 8. The Maya observe 8 Deer/MANIK as the Day of Initiation of the Mayan priest. Tone 8 is the Day of Transformation by Divine Intervention.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Lights the Fuse of Spirit; “lightning in the blood” will awaken our Sixth Sense of Knowing.
  • 7 Transformer/CIMI – a Balancing of the Above and Below promises a Major Life Change, and the Gift of Clairvoyance
  • 8 Deer/MANIK – a Transformation of Divine Justice, measured by the Truth of our Intention
  • 9 Star/LAMAT – a Revelation of our Self as the Personification of the Creator’s Light

Sun/AHAU connects us to the Source that guides us to shine our own Light to the world. AHAU can help us discover what we do best, our own special Light. We’ll learn to reach beyond earthly limitations to the Divine Possibilities in a new dimension of Being. AHAU encourages our best Dreams.

Having a “dream of a lifetime” can change our whole perspective on our Self and our Life. I was changed by the experience of reaching for a Dream that led me to Ek’ Balam. I never imagined myself reaching the destination that would really mean something to my life. I had a reason worthy of an investment of energy. In the accomplishment, I realized how easily something “impossible” was made possible. The Experience created more than just the happiness of a moment. I was happy creating it. I was happy every time a challenge was presented, and I saw myself just do the next wise thing on the list of things to do to get there. I may have spent more time visiting in my imagination than the time I actually spent in the Yucatan, with memories that continue to multiply to abundance. Our Lives are Changed by holding a “dream of a lifetime.” Our Dream gives us a reason to Rise and Shine.

Sun brings the Highest Illumination to Truth in the shadows, and Truth in plain sight. AHAU lends a Divine Perspective for all possibilities. AHAU will walk with us for the next 13-days, encouraging our Will and Determination to claim our Identity as Children of the Light.

As the All-in-One, AHAU is the Master of everything, and the One who can teach us how to Master our Dreams of Creation. AHAU lends the Power to Believe in what we Love. Our path will be paved by Truth and Light.

Today’s Forecast…

On Tone 1 we begin again. We begin in Unity with a Divine Creator. A Light will shine on our Divine Relationship. We will Know the Presence of Light. Today, a Revelation will inspire the new journey. On 13 Storm/CAUAC, through a Force like Lightning, we were magnetized to a Divine Force Above that connects us to the Source of Divine Discernment. Through a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit, we’re prepared to Believe in the Inspiration of a Dream. We will Know the Source of its Inspiration guarantees the possibility.

AHAU will help us recognize how we are perfectly matched to our Dreams and Inspiration. We dreamed them because the Creator knew they were within our reach. AHAU’s Light shines from the beginning for our ending at 13 Road/EB, where we Ascend with the Consciousness of our own Divine Destiny. We’ll see a Divine Reason for us to Be. We see how our Meaning and Purpose was already fulfilled in the Creator’s Dream for us. To reach our Divine Destiny, our path would be as simple as following the things we naturally Love to do. We’ll realize from all the possibilities, One that Shines brightest in us. We’ll begin to realize the Gifts we Love in our Self. Whatever they are, no matter how different they may be from the dreams of others around us, we’ll see them as something Beautiful the Creator sees in us – equal to every Light that shines around us.

We’ll be seen the way a Loving Parent looks their only child, watching for the interests and talents that define their personality – imagining what beautiful Human Beings they will be when they’ve grown to maturity. We’ll be seen through the eyes of Divine Love. When we fail, the Creator will only see us learning to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off, and keep on going. Every failure will be transformed into an accomplishment for celebration.

The Creator is the All-in-One that knows the Truth, and the Ways and Means of every path. There’s an unlimited number of paths to choose, AHAU helps us see our Brightest Possibilities.

The Intention for Tone 1 is to be Present and Open to receive the Light of a Possibility we are perfectly suited to carry out. We learned that every Human has their own Light to shine, one no more Divine than another. We won’t do our best by trying to be all things to all people. We’ll be guided to Create for the Creator, the One who will see the Genius in our idea from the  Beginning to the End.

The Cherokee Day Sign is the Flower whose face follows the Sun across the sky. A Flower Knows its One Source of Light, Light, and Happiness.

As Human we are inclined to seek our validation from the world around us. We want to be seen in our Light. AHAU reminds us of the One Source that Knows Everything we Can Be. AHAU will be our companion, celebrating every step of the way. Unlike the Human’s around us, AHAU will see our failures as Divine Breakthroughs. AHAU can help us see how Mastery is made possible through Trial, Error, Consciousness, Human Will and Determination. The Blessing of AHAU is the Intervention of Divine Will, for everything that lies beyond Human’s will to carry out. We will learn to operate by Divine Willpower.

Today, AHAU will inspire us to Express our Self. We’re given a blank canvas to create the Experience of our Life. The Dream of our Divine Destiny will be an accomplishment that we always hoped we could be remembered for. It will be created from a special talent that would be seen in us, that we already see in our Self.

Sun/AHAU resides in the South, the place of Relationships. The Inspiration we receive to follow our own path will forge our Relationships in Unconditional Love. Our fear of one another will fall away, as we see a talent that is all our own. AHAU can reveal all the Happiness made possible by being who we are. No one else would Create the Dream in exactly the same way. We would no longer fear competition, but celebrate the different ways of accomplishment that will leave our own signature.

AHAU shines a light on our Identity. Today we are inspired by a Dream we can claim as our own. We can realize a Dream like no other. We’ll Know the Truth of a Divine Communion through an Inspiration that was perfectly designed for us. We’ll realize what we most Love about our Self.

The Destiny of our Dreams is to leave behind memories of our Love. When all is said and done, we hope to be seen for something that exceeds our failure… an Intention that Proves our Love.

We can prepare for a Journey under the Highest Authority with an Offering of our Self. We can Volunteer for Divine Will, Believing in the Dream of our Creation. We can accept the Dream for Right Now holds a Divine Purpose, because it is what we are Inspired to do Right Now. We can believe that one path connects us to an unlimited number of possibilities. We don’t have to know the One Dream of our Life, just the Dream for Now. Any Dream will work for an application that will teach us the Wisdom of the Experience.

To all my relations, may we begin a new journey kneeling in Humility to the Master of Everything. May we see our selves as earth and clay formed by the Creator to shine the Light of Love. May we see Divine Will as our Highest Happiness. May we look toward our One Source of Light for all our encouragement, Knowing the Creator sees more than the Humans around us will ever see. May we take on a mission that is Unseen by Human eyes, that the Creator can make known to the Heart. May we suit up and show up for Sun/AHAU, training our eyes on the Light that shines on the Truth of all Possibility. May Love guide our Discernment of every experience so we will Ascend knowing the Truth that we were Created with the Meaning and Purpose to fulfill our own Destiny manifesting the Dreams we Love the most.

To all my relations, may our eyes  be trained to the Light of the Sun. May we Greet the Creator with each sunrise. May we look above as it follows its course through the zenith. May we give thanks at the Sunset for the light that was offered to our path. The Elders always said to release all our cares of the day to the West at the setting of the Sun. May we employ a physical movement that illustrates a movement in Spirit, training our Self to watch the Sun as it travels across the sky. May we take our cues from all the living things around us that Know by Instinct that the Sun is the Source of Everything Beautiful. Existing in the Light, may we Know we will be drawn to unfold the Beauty that was planned from the beginning to Bloom in us, and Multiply its Love to Abundance. May we See and Acknowledge with Gratitude, that a Mission to Love is one that we can never fail. May we put all our Faith in a Master who Intends to ignite our Will, Determination, and Passion, for the Mastery to Create the Dream that would define us by our own Expression of Unconditional Love.  What we thought was impossible will be made possible walking in Communion with the Master of Everything.

in lak’ech, i am another you

MEDICINE WAY: Eating the Light
A traditional way of drawing nourishment from the Sun was demonstrated by a Sunrise practice the Elders referred to “Eating the Light.” We greet the Dawning of a new Day in Sacred Ceremony. Cornmeal is the traditional morning offering. Held in our right hand, we crystallize the vision of our prayers, and breath it into the cornmeal 4 times, before we release it to the Light of the Sun. Then we sweep our right hand across the Light of the Sun to receive the Blessing of Light. We do this 4 times, each time, drawing the light to our mouth. May we recognize the Sun as a living companion, always with us, to feed us the Light of Illumination, and the Truth of Divine Love. May we create our own Ceremonies to Honor the path of Light that leads to our Divine Destiny.

Living things ARE literally fed by the Light of the Sun. The Sun’s Light is a shower of photons that cause an excitation in the matter of living things. Light has a Cause and Effect on our body and the electrical impulses of thought. The Pineal Gland, the pine cone shaped gland that is recognized as the seat of Divine Consciousness and Spiritual Vision, is activated by photons, stimulating signals of our DNA. “Eating the Light” is a ceremony of Seeing and Acknowledging the Truth of a Real Gift shared from the Sun to all living things on Mother Earth.

for a trecena energy forecast, insight on the 3rd Uinal, and daily aspects of the Sun/AHAU trecena.

1 Sun/AHAU (Cherokee, Flower/GUN’TSI EK)

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

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.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful and powerful prayer!
    Ahau entered directly into my core, and brought light on my most intimate dream. Looking forward to this journey with the Sun.

  2. I am reading this on the day after. Yesterday here (on 1 Ahau) was a gray rainy muddy verging on icing day. As I read this today after overnight snow left by Winter Storm Harper, we are surrounded by 7 inches of snow and the sun is shining brightly as I read this. I feel motivated to get up and greet the sunrise going forward from your writing. I am not a real early morning person due to not being directly accessible to the horizon of the sunrise where I live. Sunsets are much more visible here. Yet your reflection is causing me to look at orienting my night preparation in such a way that I will get up before sunrise & go outside to greet the sun in the manner of this Medicine Way you share. We also rely on the sun for our solar power. For the past 2 days, our access to our alternating current has fluctuated, leaving us only with the lower light of direct current. Just now, as I’m writing this, my Iphone’s battery gave the low signal, and simultaneously, our solar inverter kicked in to give “the charge” to complete this post. 🌞🌝
