MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 intends a New Understanding. We are completing an experience that moves Truth from the Head to our Heart. On Tone 12 we comprehend the Whole to seat the Wisdom of our own experience.
We’ve been looking for a Divine Family, our Reason for the Time and Place of Being. We Acknowledged that our own evolution of Consciousness was born through all the footsteps of our Ancestors. Neither could they complete the journey without limitations, but they were willing to reach for something greater so we could begin from Higher Ground.
Earth/CABAN is the Place Human was Given to Experience the Time of our Life. Mother Earth is the first enduring Gift offered to Human as the Womb for the Whole of Creation. Through her rhythm and pattern of movement we would all Receive our own Time and Place in the Light. Mother Earth is the place we were given to Belong. The Seed of Human Consciousness was planted by a Supreme Creator in the perfect place to Grow. All the instructions were written inside the Seed. Even in darkness the Seed would know which way to the Light.
12 Earth/CABAN draws our Consciousness to Movement, where we have been and where we are going. Mother Earth holds the Truth for every Divine Understanding. Just as Mother Earth’s movement has a Divine Purpose, so is Human created to Move for a Divine Intention. Our Divine Destiny is waiting to be Known Here on Mother Earth by Human’s Consciousness. Today we realize the Power of Consciousness to make all our Choices on purpose.
KIN 77: Master Number 77 doubles and amplifies the energies of Number 7, which relates to all our ways of Understanding – inner- wisdom and intuition, contemplation and discernment, understanding of others, inner-strength and tenacity, learning and education, empathic and psychic abilities, endurance and determination, spiritual enlightenment, development and spiritual awakening, and Divine life purpose. Number 77 doubles and amplifies the good fortune that relates to Number 7.
The Movement of Mother Earth creates the Time for the experience of living. Everything we Know we learn from her and our experience over Time.
The Aztec symbol, the Ollin (Ah-len) is placed at the center of the stone calendar that marks important passages of Time. Ollin simply means Movement. The closest Mayan description of a Supreme God is the Hunab Ku. “God” was known as everything that ever could be, and everything that ever was, the All-in-One as Eternity. Only through Relationship between one possibility and another, could the Supreme Creator Know Itself. Earth/CABAN symbolizes the Movement of Mother Earth that makes it possible to experience Time and Place. Each Spark holds a story of an Unlimited Possibility, a Divine Beginning and End from its Creation. Like the Seed, it would Grow into what it was intended to be.
Human was given a lifetime to see our own Miracle unfold before our eyes. The Movement of Mother Earth would make it all possible. We would belong to Her and she would sustain us and give everything we need. We would find a Reason to Birth a New Generation of Seed that could Know from the Beginning what took us so long to see. The Whole of Humanity was designed to Equally Share every blessing.
The Aztec believe that Ollin, Earth/CABAN, is the Day when we are able to see what we are Becoming. This marks the Day when we see the leaves on the sprout next to us, on the trees next to us, and know we are part of a Divine Family planted right where we belong, next to each other. We Know what we are becoming, because We Were Given Human Relationships to See that We Are ALL Becoming.
This is a Day to Imagine our Dream with all of our Heart.
This morning on 11 Wisdom/CIB a heavy snow is enclosing the Earth around me in a blanket of White. I feel the Presence of the Ancestors and their Dream to shower all the Wisdom they could share with us as a Blessing of Understanding. The Masters appear whenever the student is present to hear. My thoughts had already been turned to stories told by my Grandparents of their struggle to survive.
Life is the most fundamental Gift our Grandmothers and Grandfathers passed down to us. We are on Higher Ground because they survived for us. My Great Grandmother on my Father’s side survived a winter on the western plains of Kansas in a dug-out. My Grandma Naomi was carried by horse and buggy 15 miles to a doctor when her appendix ruptured during the 8th month of pregnancy. She said she had a vision of heavy purple curtains drawn back to reveal the Light of a Cross on a Hill. She told God she couldn’t go now, she needed to be here on Earth for all her children. It’s a Miracle she survived and a Miracle that Uncle Frankie was born.
We were Created with a Reason to Live for each other. We were born looking for the Life that would go on. We instinctively Know greater things will be seen by a new generation. We see how our Dreams might inspire Higher Dreams in the future… we could prove the possibility.
My Grandfather was a farmer who worked on the Santa Fe railroad. Settling on the Kansas plains was a dream of survival and home. When provisions ran low in winter, they boiled the cane into sorghum to trade or sell for what was needed. They dreamed of what the Gift of Land could mean to a future generation. Instead of railroads, my father (the next generation) built airplanes and dreamed of owning an airport. His son, my brother, became the AF Commander of Refueling Missions, and cleared the runway by hand for the private airport built on that land.
As many blessings were passed on to me by my visionary Grandma Naomi. Over Time I see more of her ways in me. My sister recently shared one of Dad’s stories of Naomi’s sixth senses. Dad lost his wallet in the course of tending the farm and asked his Mom, Naomi, where he should look to find it. She said she’d think about it. The next morning she called, suggesting where to look in a field right where he would find it.
After I received Dad’s Christmas card with cash for the great grandchildren, I thought of all the cards he must have sent. He’s 92 and must now carry on what mother can no longer do. I thought of the time it took and all the stamps to send cards to so many great grandchildren. As a last minute thought at the post office, I bought another card to send with my package to enclose a book of stamps.
When he received it, he was immediately curious how I could possibly know he was out of stamps. It only made sense he was out of stamps. Maybe “psychic” is no more than using our faculties of Consciousness and Love together. When we Look for the Love in another, our Spirit will inspire a Divine Exchange that proves Love was Seen and Acknowledged. It will be right in front of our face. People may think we’re genius, but all we did was look, inspired by an Intention to Love Each Other.
Someone faced challenges and went on living for us, because they had a Dream that reached beyond what they Knew. The best they knew how, they dreamed there was something better.
Mother Earth was the place we were intended to employ our Sacred Right of Choice to have anything our Heart Desires. Our first Dream of it was a Garden where everything we needed to be happy was right there within our reach. It still wasn’t enough. Human wanted to know the Reason, the Meaning and Purpose. The Creator’s Reason was to bring the Darkness of the Unknown into the Light, so that every possibility could be seen as an experience. To Understand we wanted to see it for our Self. The Creator intended Relationship equally for us, to see and Know our Self.
Our Consciousness is the witness of Darkness transforming to Light. We began in the Unknown to discover what is already Known by the Creator, the Light manifesting in us every time we Choose it. We can Choose What we See and Hold as the Imagine of our thoughts. The only reason Human can’t see the Miracle of Now is that we’ve chosen to ignore it.
What if I said there is something right in front of you that you’ve chosen to ignore all your life? It’s right in front of you, but you never see it, only because you never look for it? It’s your nose. (Check it out. It’s right there.) We choose what we see by what we look for. Until we forgive, we choose to look for injustice again and again. We can’t even imagine a dream, when all we look for is someone to blame. What we look for will multiply as possibilities we see. Forgiveness is our own Miracle to see new possibilities.
A story about the Mayan masks explained how the Maya discerned whether an experience was happening in the material world or in the realm of Spirit. The nose was all important to the discernment of an experience of a dream, where the nose did not appear. We are living among possibilities and experiences that we only need to look for to see. Consciousness is the Gift that makes Miracles possible. Given Time, Human will Know we can ask for what we want to see. For the Freedom of Choice to stand in integrity, every choice had to be possible.
The Aztec believed that Ollin was a “lucky day for the active principle” and “an unlucky day for the passive principle.” This is a Lucky Day for choosing what we will Look for. If we don’t pay attention, we’ll find ourselves going along with choices of others around us, an unconscious choice. With the Understanding of who we are becoming and who we dream to be, we can Rise to a New Life by making all our Choices on Purpose based on our own Intentions. This is a day to Claim our Sacred Right to Choose the Miracle of seeing our Dream come true.
We can ask to see the unfolding of the Miracle meant for us. The Miracle is already manifesting through pieces we are able to see over Time. We will see it ALL Sooner or Later. Through Consciousness we can celebrate and be happy NOW for the Blessing of Love that is promised in our Future. We can Choose to See the Miracle Now. We only have to imagine the Miracle we’d most want to see, and ask for the Divine Intervention to See it – then Look for it. The Creator promised it would be there.
To all my relations, may we claim that our Dream could be as easy as claiming the nose on our face. The Choice is ours to See it in our Imagination, and ask to Believe what we See. Our Heart’s Desire is Known by the One that Created Us. A Divine Creator who Loves us as Divine Children is staying up at Night in our Dreams assembling the Miracle. May we look for all the threads of Beauty in the tapestry we are creating that will be woven in to the Creator’s final Masterpiece.
What would it hurt to Look for the Signs that we are Rising from the ashes of the past, into a New Life of Knowing that all the Bounty we could ever Dream of lies in the next Divine Destination we Choose to Look for. May we Look for the Highest Dreams we can, Knowing that what we create can manifest a Reason to carry on.
May we believe in Dreams so Beautiful that when the creation is manifested on Earth, we’ll look for our Nose to prove that a Miracle seen with our own eyes is no longer just a Dream.

12 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
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.
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, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. 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 Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hall)
