MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 is a day of Understanding. The energy of Number 12 relates to Comprehension and Communication, as a Truth Spoken to the Heart. Tone 12 elevates “Knowing” from something we “think” to something we can “feel” is True.
We were offered a clarifying description of the Number 11 from a K’iche Daykeeper in Guatemala. We associate Number 11 as a Resolution for Higher Discernment that brings clarity. I like the K’iche way of saying it better. Jen’s teacher taught her it was an Antennae that tunes us in for a Divine Discernment.
Looking deeper at numbers as I felt Ian was calling for us to do, Number 12 is described on the Saq’Be website of K’iche tradition, as “Strong energy that ignites because 12 is a spiritual catalyst. The group, the family, the association.”
We might see something deeper in 12, as the “12 Below” – like the 12 Constellations around the Higher “13” of the Sun, or 12 Disciples led by the “13” Ascending One.
The Reed/BEN trecena has been all about the Light of Home and Family. This was the Divine Intention for this New Understanding. We found the Wisdom in Seeing Each Other, and how Valuable the Gifts that Anyone and Everyone could Offer.
Seed/KAN is also a Symbol of Family as the Divine Genetics of our Family Tree. KAN specifically relates to the Center of the Seed, the Forces of Life and Spirit that are imperishable lying within the Seed. Humanity is a Seed that holds its integrity. No matter how long it lies dormant, it’s ALWAYS READY, perfectly prepared for it’s first moment of Life. We are the Seed of a Divine Dream.
We were meant to Know the Seed. Seeds and Eggs are the store prepared for Abundant Life. The Maya revered the Corn as a symbol of Human. Corn produced Seeds of many Colors. All the Colors of Corn are in EVERY Human body – the Red, Blue, Yellow, and White. Corn is grown most abundantly together, and the resulting fruit of the harvest are Seeds close together that Expresses Abundance.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Dragon, the same Force at the Heart of the Seed. The Dragon is related to Higher Vibrations of Consciousness. The Dragon means ”eye, to look at, to see clearly.”
Ley lines that mark paths of Higher Vibration on Earth are called “dragon lines” by some. They are Vibrations of Mother Earth. Human recognize such places as a “spiritual vortex,” one that en trains the Human Consciousness. Arizona is noted for this. I never imagined such beauty in a desert. (I was afraid to go there too. What if the AC went out?)
I felt the vortex energy in Tucson, Arizona. It was a very difficult personal passage in my life, yet I only have fond memories of the Time and Place. There was such a peace in chaos there. On any Sunday, I could drive to the Mission San Xavier del Bac for fry-bread and honey, or meat, beans and cheese, served by members of the Tohono O’odham (Tō ‘ōnō ōh ‘ōh dum) tribe set up under tents in the parking lot.
There was the most elaborate altar I’ve ever been to. This photo is the center altar. Though, no less ornate and fascinating displays are equal to either side of it and ALL around. It was a Place and Time for lighting candles and leaving prayers.
I could take a path of many altars, next to it on “Grotto Hill.” It was a short climb that circled the little hill with many altars, effigies, symbols, flowers, and prayers all shared by Humans passing by. That’s how Tucson “felt” and then, there was the Sunrise that was visible there in cloudless skies nearly every morning. And, Lightning and Stars like I’d never seen before. I could drive 15 minutes to see the Moon rise from a mountain pull-off. Within 50 miles I could enter Sacred Tohono O’ohdam. At the top in the Night near the Kitt’s Peak Observatory, I learned to Ride the Milky Way. (One of the astronomers at the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Assn, shared that if you look for the brightest end, you’d be looking at the center of the galaxy. Hold your arms out aligned leaning in with the center, and you are standing on Mother Earth, riding through the sky on the ARM OF THE GALAXY BEHIND the one we see as the “Milky Way.”)
It was a Time and Place to be immersed in the Love of Mother Earth, Father Sky, and One Another. It’s a Time and Place of countless beautiful stories and experiences. When I moved to Seattle in the midst of a cold, wet, and dark winter, it was if I fell into the Underworld.
Maybe You have been through the Underworld journey too. I’m believing we are ALL finally Seeing a Light Pouring out a new Warmth to Hold us, invisibly, in Arms of Love. We’re being born into a New Light of Consciousness. All Signs say we’re concluding a big initial step of it… one that will be resolved by a Meaning and Purpose.
I never wanted to leave. I could still go back. Looking back, it was a perfect slice family-Life. I was in need of family when I moved there. Long distance friends helped me negotiate the rent of an apartment, so there would be a place to call “home” before I got there. Friends made trips to their storage lockers and the place was furnished with the basics when I walked in. There were 3 of us across the courtyard. We met for a cup of coffee most mornings. We were wildly different, though seldom a difference between us. It just “worked” as a unit. We each took turns cooking our favorite recipes for each other. Then, one went South to Mexico, and I was offered a job north of Seattle. Tucson will always hold a “perfect slice of life,” nothing less than “Divine” could ever be attached to one story after another.
Number 12 is the Whole of a Human family below. Drawn into Unity, the 12 Create the Divine 13. When Humans are Seeing and Believing together… whenever we come together as a Divine Family of Harmony and Equity, we’re positioned to Know and Feel what Divine Love is. We’ll Know it as a Love of Provision for one another. When we exist in this kind of Loving Relation we Believe in God. When we share the births and the deaths together, when we know if we’re down that a neighbor will check in shortly, we’ll Remember the Love that we’d almost forgotten. There will be no doubt of a Divine Creator, when life is all about taking care of a family.
Family changes us. All foolish ways have to go when a newborn creates a family. First we don’t have the Time, and second, we have to start “setting a good example.”
These are the last 3 days before the Wayeb, the last month of 5 days in the Haab, when no Day Sign is in charge. The Maya stay close to home taking care of each other. We might see these 5 days as the ones where Human takes charge. It’s a time for clearing “loose ends” of the year. From the Safety of Home, we can see what we’re made of.
The current Year Bearer, 6 Deer/MANIK, is completing its turn of transformation on a planetary scale. The Deer/MANIK and the Mission of the Mayan priest have been central to Human Understanding for THIS Time and Place. “How could we all lead one another back to Love?” That’s the Deer’s Mission.
We naturally saw the Meaning and Purpose for this Mission on a global scale. In the chaos of a very Major Life Change, we all found ourselves asking new questions.
“Who am I? Who are WE? What have WE become, and what lies in the future for Humanity AND the future of Mother Earth?”
When the 12 are in Agreement that a Divine Consciousness exists, we are the catalyst for a Miracle of the 13th Above. (That was the new Number 12 description to Understand.)
So I ask something, Believing that you will Agree.
“Who am I? Who are WE? What have WE become, and what lies in the future for Humanity AND the future of Mother Earth?”
In the WORDS of that, WHO ARE WE ASKING?
These are questions we’ve hear a lot of people asking, never expecting another Human to hold the answer. Is it possible (and it should be if everything is possible) that WE HAVE ALL SEEN AND ACKNOWLEDGED a Divine Consciousness – some Divine Order or Authority from Above? WHO ELSE would we expect to know the Answer?
There IS ONE Speaking to us. A call has been made to round up all the children at the same time. All of us are the 12 Called, and we are ALL following to the Perfect Time and Place where a Divine Seed is Awakened, that Knows itself as clearly as it Knew it’s way to the Light.
We are Receiving the Understanding of the Haab 6 Deer/MANIK – the last Tone 12 of Understanding in the Haab year. We will Know it as new, and Know we are crossing into Divine territory. THROUGH a new Understanding, our Antennae were Tuned at a Place and Time marked by a Crossing. We were Tuned In on Akbal – in our Dreams.
We’ve all been tuned in to our Spiritual Family, serving our Deer/MANIK Mayan priest and Grandfather, Tata – Don Alejandro, with our Prayers and our Light. We are all gathered around a Fire of AKBAL in our Dreams, remembering the one who’s Dreams fanned our first flame of Believing in a crossing that marked a New Undertstanding of Divine Time and Place.
6 Deer/MANIK holds the energy of Number 6, the Flow of Momentum through a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. Whether we knew it or not, the MANIK priest has been teaching us all to Pray – Kneeling in Humility at our limitations, broken by what we have done. We have been broken by a divide between us we could hardly believe could be fixed. We saw what a Divided Family could mean for the future of ALL our Dreams.
When we began asking those questions, we were engaging in a Divine Communion. Maybe it didn’t feel Divine at the Time, but under the Authority of a Creator of Uncondtional Love, there are no conditions. There’s no way we didn’t “do it good enough.”
We can Honor Don Alejandro for a path of Family passed on through 13 Generations. We can Honor a Truth of so many “Family” things have all converged at the same TIME. We can the Creator’s Time, Sacred and Known, given for a Relationship that wouldn’t end before it had ALL Time. In Relationship, we asked questions. We’re receiving answers FROM this Time and Place of Human’s history.
The INTENTION OF TONE 6 has generated MOMENTUM. This is only the BEGINNING of realizing our Destiny – where this Momentum of Spirit could take us. The NEXT Haab year will lead Human to the top of the pyramid, guided by the Year Bearer 7 Road/EB (Human, the Road of our Destiny, and Human’s Divine Calendar of Creation). When this time comes back around again, the next Haab New Year is 02/20/2020, from the Threshold of Spirit at the Top of a Pyramid, we’ll See All that Is, and All that is Not with a view all around. There will be no place else to Go, EXCEPT THROUGH a Reflection Above and Stairs that continue up into the MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATION of our Dreams. We’ll Believe it Because We See it.
Deer/MANIK created the Rainbow Bridge of Light from Below to Above. We are Prepared for our Highest Human Creation in the Beauty of our Dreams. That’s what all the Momentum is created for. We’re being prepared to see everything that is possible.
The Truth is written in the Seed. The Truth is in the very Consciousness we were given to Dream it. We started as nothing more than a thought. We are the Ether of Thoughts in the Mind of the Creator. We are the pieces and parts of the Creator, the Sparks, sent to Walk on Mother Earth and to Share in Relationship all the Dreams Created there. Like a Star, we are always brought to Life and we Appear in our own Perfect Time and Place.
To all my relations, I am Agreeing for you that we are all one family, because we were Dreaming together, and sharing our own Light of Faith for each other’s Dreams. Eagle is the Intermediary, I can’t see it for you, but I can tell you what I see. We have been surrounded by Signs and Wonders. We only had to pay attention to see SOMETHING. EACH of us were given SOMETHING, a thread of Ether. I saw the threads of Ether dangling from you that weave us together. There was at least One Sign, One PERSONAL Inspiration, that was given to you – and only to You… only FOR YOU. Don’t share it. It was given especially to you.
It will be a Light that is YOUR Truth of Divinity that you Know you can Stand on, a Dream you could always return to the next time you lay your head on the pillow. We could never have Dreamed so High if we didn’t know there was someone with us who could hold a Spark with us. It is a Creation we all manifested together.
There is a Creation you manifested long ago. It’s imperishable as the Seed of Your Divine Dream. All this time it has been something that could be manifested Below. In the 4th uinal, we’ve taken on a Leaf, one that would reveal an identity. Others growing around us look the same, though they’re all different… different heights, widths, colors, and parameters, hybrids, and new variations. We’re still in the same family. We are the 12 Loving each other for the Possibility that any number that identified itself as “family” are the “12” that is the catalyst for a Miracle. Numbers are a universal language Human learned on its fingers.
In Lak’ech, a la Kin – i am another you, and you are another me
Everyone of us is the same, holding a Dream of Harmony, Happiness, and Love.
ALL of together are asking the Same Divine questions. The 13 is the Promise of an Answered Prayer.
Namaste – I bow to the God in You.
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
Our candles burn for Don Alejandro, reflecting the Light he shared with us. May we send the Grandfather Tata, our Love and Light.
Don Alejandro is bed-ridden at 90 and we’re holding watch. A contact email for a donation to help cover his medical care is included in the Update on Don Alejandro’s health shared by his dear friend Joseph.
Master Number 44: Today’s Day Sign resides in Position 4, Uinal 4, illustrating the Master Number 44. The Master Number 44 is known as the “Master Healer” and is very rare in numerology. Angel Number 44 resonates with the attributes of support and stability, establishing solid foundations for the self and others, willpower and effort, ability and worthiness, hard work and achieving success, wholeness and inner-wisdom.”
In the Medicine Wheel tradition, 4 completes a turn to the 4 directions, marking a completion of discernment. Our Wisdom is drawn from looking at things through the influence of each of those directions, Inspiration from a Divine Source, Relationship with each other and the natural world, what we Learn from the Experience, and both the Wisdom that came before, and the Wisdom known by innocent children. “Beautiful Painted Arrow” an American high shaman, described this as “Tracks of Light.” Human makes the journey to the parameter of the circle in each of the 4 directions, into the darkness to receive and Experience. Human leaves “tracks of light” back and forth as the Wisdom of new experience is carried back to the Center. That was the Sun/Moon dance.
THE LAST PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether
12 Seed/KAN, Kin 64, is a Portal Day that magnifies our experience and opens a channel to Spirit. Related to a thinning of the veil, Portal Days are capable to open our awareness to other Dimensions and our Divine Connection.
Portal Days are a newer construct of the calendar. I always feel something on portal days, so I report them. Now I have this this nagging feeling that Tata wouldn’t agree. I’m abandoning the teaching out of respect for our Elder. Tata said everything from the Dreamspell was a confusion. So, I should have listened, because I may have confused you. So, this is my last Portal Report. (It sure FEELS like a portal.)
A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.
21-Days of Gratitude: Thru the Wayeb to the Haab New Year
I’m grateful for the DIVINE FAMILY of YOU. I’m grateful our paths crossed. You’ve given me more unconditional love than I’ve ever known.

12 Seed/KAN (Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
Seed/KAN: Family, sexual activity and the magic of germination are the characteristics of this sun sign. Natural net workers, Seed people strive to free themselves and others from debt or oppressive patterns of the past. Abundance is gathered by Seeds as if with a cast net. Seed persons are public defenders who work toward uniting community by discovering hidden traps and secret influences of others. To generate true abundance, Seed must learn to appreciate all gifts and lessons received and conduct profound investigations into its self. In the absence of gratefulness and the courage to face oneself, Seed finds itself in less than less fertile environments.
Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA: Dragon’s symbol is Draco winding between the Little Dipper and Big Dipper. Dragon is the Corn Spirit, symbol of dual personality of Corn Mother and Maiden. Fertility and pro-creation from generation to generation. The word dragon means ”eye, to look at, to see clearly”. Spirit brings energy of Lawgiver, Justice, vigilance and protective, loyal unto death. Ley lines in China are “dragon lines”, energy is sometimes called “orgone energy”, pyramid power or magnetic force. Pyramids and kivas are collector portals for this energy, known as vortexes. Dragon energy beats a path everywhere, stirring things up with a big stick in tune with the beat of the drum, heartbeat of the Earth.

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!
When I came back from Cancun, I realized I loved Mother Earth HERE just as much as any other place. I loved the Rain as much as the Sun.
