MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 5 we receive an Empowerment of Spirit. Tone 5 is the center of the cube, the central organizing force of Consciousness that manages and consolidates the resources of communication, materials, and knowledge for application.
Like an artist manages the tools for the creation of a masterpiece, it knows the ways and means, the brushes that will be used for broad strokes and the ones used for the fine details. Everything that’s needed is ready at hand.
This is a day when we can feel we’ve been prepared. We will know we’re ready.
Night/AKBAL is the Light that Shines in the Darkness and the Voice that Speaks to us in our Dreams. AKBAL is the Light that reveals the Reality of our Dreams. Our Dreams are more than a place of sleep and forgetting. Our Dreams are Real in the realm of Spirit – as real as any material manifestation. The realm of Spirit is the place where Dreams are first born. Everything that exists first started from a Dream. Nothing in the material world exists Without a Dream of it first. So, which is REAL if one can’t exist without the other?
The Cherokee Day Sign the Hearth represents the Sacred Fires that burn through the Night, tended by the Ascended Masters and Spirits of Divinity. There they fan the embers of our Dreams to Create the Light that we can always see in the distance. The Light is Real to us as it comes with the Shared Faith of Believing.
The glyph illustrates the curtains drawn back to reveal a Light in the distance that will always shine for us.
“The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night. Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension.”
The Renewal and Regeneration of CAUAC is new charge of Light to our Spirit. We receive an Illumination capable to turn Darkness into the Light of Day. A Gift of Believing can manifest the Major Life Change of seeing Life through the eyes of Spirit.
This morning my thoughts were turned to doing for others. It’s always easier to do something for someone else. We can do some of our best work for each other. My friend Susan in Tucson is among the best cleaners I know. I remember a time in Tucson when she’s pitched in to help me out. Having someone working side-by-side, it’s easy for Love to be One with the experience. I think we all love the experience of someone who cares enough to do for us – even when we CAN do for our Self. I don’t know any mothers who would complain that one night they aren’t the one who has to answer, “What’s for dinner.” Maybe it’s me, but nothing tastes as good as a meal someone else cooks for you… unless it’s REALLY bad. The Best of Human is the Love we share when we’re together.
I’ve always thought that the best way to support those in need was through organizations that provided a perpetual place of support. Though we miss an opportunity to share Love if we only put a check in the mail. Sometimes that’s all we can do. This morning I wondered if Humans weren’t meant to “live for someone else.”
That has been the “family” tradition as long as Humanity has existed. It’s our Human story of Love passed down since the beginning. We could realize the Divinity of every generation that cared for the next. Maybe that is our common thread and the secret to all our Power… doing what we do for someone else. It’s been true of this journal. What has made it possible was that I was writing it to you. Writing “a letter” is easier than just writing thoughts and words that express something we know. It’s the experiences we share together that make the difference.
We could do everything for someone else. We could find an unlimited number of reasons. We could manifest our Dream so someone else would believe in their own Miracle. We could help someone else’s Dream to prove we were made capable of offering a Divine provision. When we uphold Faith and Love, we could believe we are helping to carry Believing on behalf of the Whole. We could do what we CAN do on behalf of those who aren’t blessed with the same advantages we have.
There is someone, somewhere, who would give anything for the opportunities that are easy for us. There is someone who bears the injustice that things are not fair, seeing “those who have” are blind to the opportunities and resources that could bless so many. If personal interest wasn’t the top priority, money spent on one USA presidential election, could change the lives of many. What could possibly be left to buy if you were the richest man with $137 billion dollars? Who needs more than $1 billion? 🙂 Even if it was rounded down for an even $100 billion, $37 billion could touch the lives of every Human on Earth in a personal way. What fortune are we sitting on? What do we ALL have to give? Time.
We are only separated from one another in the material world as Light reflected off the “matter” of who we are. We are limited by the frequencies of vibration our eyes are capable to see. The beauty of the Universe wasn’t seen until we created instruments to see higher frequencies of Light.
Don Alejandro says we are fingers on the same hand. This story of our Unity was dreamed eons ago by the One who made us. The words and the promise have been preserved and passed down from one Spiritual Elder to each of the following generations as the One Light we could all see in the dark, together.
The Time of the 13th Baktun was marked as an evolutionary Leap of Human consciousness. Each baktun marks 144,000 days, an era of Humanity about 400 years long. 400 years ago, Human pilgrims made a journey to a new world of the Americas. We mark the Time of their arrival without thinking much about what came before. They set sail from a world of Known without a way to turn back. They did it for Family for the future. All the migrations of Human were carried out for the same Intention.
The Ancestors are one with us always in Spirit. So will our story be part of the One Story of the Ancestors. We all share their Divine Lineage. Now is the Time and Place shared by many generations as Time for the return of “men and women of wisdom.” We ARE the ones we’ve been waiting for, empowered by the Wisdom of the Elders reborn in us as the Dawn of Our New Awakening.
Now is the beginning of Peace and Harmony on Earth. This is how it all starts. Things are always dark when we first wake up. Our Divine Eye is adjusting to a new realm of Light. The synchronicity of Life is becoming clearer. We can see a Divine Dream that was meant to last for eternity. Our own Lifetime is Our Sacred Time and Place to be a part of Human’s journey to a Divine Destiny.
Night/AKBAL resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Experience and our Journey to the Known, the Seen, and the Belief of Knowing. AKBAL marks a day of mystical experiences, connecting the Unconscious and the Conscious, the Intellect and the Imagination, and the “right” and “left” brain perceptions of thought. Instead of using our Intellect to understand “an illusion” that is the world below, AKBAL can help us see that Truth is found when we apply our Intellect to the Wisdom of the REAL realm of Spirit.
In the 13th baktun we were born into the Age of Human Prophesy that marks our Highest Human evolution of Consciousness – a “shift of the ages” completed by a 5,200-year era of human climbs, each step made one at a time.
AKBAL engages our Heart and Soul. AKBAL shines the Light of what we Really Love, through “darkness.” AKBAL often presents itself as a “dark night” of the soul. We learn the most about what we really Love when we think all hope of it is gone. We see all the blessings we took for granted. There are so many little things we take for granted. We expect every morning that we will be able to rise out of bed like every other day. How often do we even think about the feet and legs that carry us around. We move by Intention in the material world, just the same as we move by Intention in the realm of Spirit. All human has to do is see something across the room that it wants and without a second thought our legs carry us over there. Our body functions at the command of what our Consciousness intends to do.
We’re called to something Higher. We’re called to Prove that Faith and Love can prevail through the darkness, that the Light of believing was promised to every generation. We can believe Our Time has Come, our Morning has Come to find a Divine Way of living together on Mother Earth. Every generation held hope that one day, our generation would be born on Earth, with the consciousness to open our eyes and see the Truth. The realm of Spirit was Real Enough to be seen by every generation that came before… EVERY GENERATION THAT CAME BEFORE.
All of our Transformation takes place through the Heart. It is happening in this Time and Place, as we become willing to Feel what our Heart Knows. We think we’re always supposed to share our happiness, so we hide our fear and pain. Yet, this is the “darkness” that creates Compassionate Love for one another.
ALL OUR POWER RESIDES IN THE HEART where we feel both the pain and joy of loving. The prayers that come from the Heart – the prayers we feel deeply – are the prayers we KNOW are answered. On Night/AKBAL, when we open our heart we will Hear a Voice that speaks to us of the Creator’s Unconditional Love.
The Creator made a Divine Provision for the Human Heart to always be Healed in the Light of a Divine Communion. When we Know Unconditional Love, we begin to wake up – just like we wake up when we see the Light coming through the window. A Voice in our Dreams will turn our breakdown into the breakthrough of Knowing we are living for a Purpose Divine Enough for a Supreme Creator to be Present With Us through every step of the journey.
We can believe in the prayers of Don Alejandro, the Mayan priest who has carried them out as 13 generations taught him to do. We can Believe because our Ancestors Believed enough in the One Dream of Happiness and Love.
To all my relations, may hold Gratitude for the Sacred Time and Place we were given on Mother Earth. May we Honor the Spirits that tend the Fire of the One Dream that is the common thread of the Whole – a Dream of something Better for those who follow. They Dreamed for us. May we follow the footprints they left behind, Dreaming and Creating for each other. May it be worth a “dark night of the soul” that would bring us to our Knees where the Creator will Know the Dream we think is Lost. May we Give Thanks that a Supreme Creator Knows that when we see what could be Lost, we’ll Know what’s worth Looking for to Find.
Daykeeper Jen’s teacher in Guatemala said that the pain of brokenness is the Fire of Transformation. We push it away. The Fire can change us if we allow it to burn. Bringing this Fire to the altar we share a Sacred Offering. A prayer of Intervention offered for the Whole, is our contribution to the Future of Humanity. What is healed in our Self, we heal for the Whole.
May we give Thanks for the Equality Promised for each Human’s contribution to the Whole of Wisdom. May we be grateful that our contribution is no less important. May we know that those who fan the embers are fanning the One Dream we share – their own Dream, that we might carry on to Manifest the Miracle. May we ask to Believe that we are prepared to carry out the Destiny of our Spirit.
in lak’ech, i am another you

A PRAYER FOR THE GENERATIONS: We can extend our Light in the Darkness to every Generation that has or will share this journey on Mother Earth. The Native American Elders taught us to pray for 7 generations that came before and 7 generations that come after. You can start in either direction. Hold each generation in your Heart and be Conscious of the Life you hope for them. Something mystical happens when you reach the 7th generation. It’s always hard to imagine in a personal way. Somehow the oldest and the youngest become One as the link that completes a circle.
Maybe our “immediate” family in the realm of Spirit is 12 generations and the 13 is the Ascended Family that came before. May we give thanks for ancestors who prayed for us.
We can choose to Believe that for Don Alejandro, the 13th Generation Shaman of the Mayan calendars and Human’s Sacred Journey. May we give thanks for Tata who carries on in the footsteps of his ancestors to share the Wisdom of 13 generations with us.
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.

5 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void… a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night. Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension. AKBAL-Night-Totem-OWL: Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, seeing through the masks of deception, trickery. High ability of discernment. Portals open to other worlds and dimensions for your learning and spiritual growth. Magical abilities are possible.
