MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms. Tone 4 adds the dimensions of Time and Place to establish a sense of orientation and the parameters for “the rules of the game.” Tone 4 shows us how to uphold the pillars of the reality we create from the realm of Spirit.
Eagle/MEN is the Day Sign of the Intermediary. An Intermediary is a “middle-man” with an Intention of elevating a Relationship. The Eagle lifts us up for a heavenly view so we can see something for our Self. Eagle/MEN guides our Highest Hopes and our Highest Aspirations.
Eagle relies on its long-distance vision to grasp the prize. It knows that anything that it can see within its range of vision, is as good as in its grasp. An Eagle can see it’s pray 1.9 miles away. Some are identified by only the unique color of their fur. An Eagle will take off when only a speck of the color can be seen under a bush… 1.9 miles away.
Eagle/MEN offers the Truth that there are many things to see beyond Human’s limited range of vision… substantial enough for survival. The Eagle doesn’t reason the way by calculating the elements or wind speed. Eagle only focuses on the vision it sees in the future.
Eagle/MEN guides the perception of Believing in our own Eyes of Spirit. Our Human eyes were limited, but to make things fair, we were given Unlimited Vision in the realm of Spirit. We would grasp the prize, believing in what we see and believing in the Intention of a Divine Creator to lead us there. Eagle/MEN will guide us to explore our Highest Hopes and Aspirations. The shadow side of Eagle warns us that we could only fail if we choose to fly away.
Eagle/MEN guides our Stability by Faith that the Wind, the Breath of God, will guide us to the destination of our Divine Reward. From up above, we’ll see the Truth that there is no obstacle between our Point A and Point B. The obstacles were illusions that were only seen from the ground. We are given the wings to soar over them as if they weren’t even there.
From recent comments and communications, it appears that we are all going through some changes. The pieces of a Major Life Change are falling into place. It should be clearly identifiable by the chaos. Everything on this end was set for clear sailing, then it all fell apart over one obstacle or another. All business came to a standstill with a government shutdown. Then life stood still for a week of 6″ snow that prevented any movement. Then some health challenges were a setback for another week – both Shadow and I have been in recovery mode – close, but not quite all the way to the recovery.
I’m now grateful that this whole scenario is reminiscent of last summer and the Dream of going to Ek’ Balam. As soon as the choice was made, the whole thing appeared to fall apart. I would have given up and flown away, only now I had you behind me, believing in my dream. So, I couldn’t fly away. I had to keep going for you. At the time, it was a matter of life and death. I was afraid to go alone. One story led to another of a sad state of affairs and potential for danger. I never imagined I would be so afraid of a Dream. It was because I was afraid that following the Jaguar’s footprints was the only way.
I remember looking up the totem Jaguar to see what more I could find. A description noted that the Jaguar holds the strength and courage to meet danger face-to-face. I chose to take on the Jaguar’s invisibility. I would Trust the Jaguar’s footprints. Instead of flying away, I just walked through the obstacles doing the next wise thing to do. With each obstacle, came the realization that it wasn’t the end of the world, or the end of my dream… it’s more the hassle.
I wonder how many dreams we fly away from, not because they are impossible, but because we’re tired of the inconvenience of getting there. The only reason we would come to such a conclusion is in failing to really see the real Blessing of the Prize. We need to Love it enough to put our Self on the line.
If we’re honest with our self, part of the FUN is accomplishing something we thought was impossible. We aren’t likely to be overjoyed because we were able to cross the street. Human thrives on overcoming all odds. That’s what heroes are made of. We want to accomplish heroic feats. Well, there’s some inconvenience that goes with that. There will be challenges – that’s the whole point – Knowing we have the Provision to carry it out. Our Highest Dream won’t be “easy” and that’s exactly what will make it so Divine.
Luckily, it’s a short flight for an Eagle. The Creator knows our limits. And, the Creator is ready and waiting to Intervene. The Eagle flies high enough to see the Provision that is already in place. It believes in what it sees enough to rely on the speck it sees in the future. The Eagle is said to have a talent for success in business by its ability to see how things turn out in advance. We can choose how things will turn out by holding the Vision of our Dream without turning away. What we see is Real to our Spirit as one of an unlimited number of opportunities.
Eagle/MEN can help us mark a destination that is assured. We’re called to put all our Faith in the fact that we can See the Dream in our imagination. It was a huge Leap of Faith to buy the ticket to Ek’ Balam, when I still didn’t know whether I could pull it off. Even though the money was shared by donations, it seemed like a big step to spend any of it. It was an 8 hour effort of tracking down flights and accommodations for a place I was afraid to go. Yet everything changed the moment the tickets were mine. I Knew I was going. There was no turning back. It all became real and my thoughts were turned around. BELIEVING, my thoughts turned to the destination and everything I might see and experience. I visited all the ruins over the Internet, imagining myself really there in these places. Believing, my Love only Grew for the Miracle that was offered as my own opportunity.
In 2015 there was no speck of this to be seen anywhere. I was convinced all the Life, Light, and Happiness of living was over, all in my past. I was sure there was nothing left in me to accomplish. I was only living to be here for my children. At the same time, I could only imagine the burden I could become. Yet, by 2018, I was sailing toward the dream of a lifetime – beyond anything I could have imagined when I started. I was just hoping to get through the days.
God has many Miracles in store for all of us. We get to See and Acknowledge them as Miracles – impossibilities becoming possibilities. Back to the question of our Intention – “What if we could start all over again?” We ask that question because we KNEW the next step, but we didn’t take it. We KNEW if we had a ‘do-over’ we’d have the Wisdom to do things differently. What we can resolve to do differently, is to just keep going and not fly away.
It will be different this time. Even though we flew away, we saw ourselves moving closer before we did. By Divine Provision the we learned something from our first failed flight. We at least know the way to the place we turned around. We may have been halfway there without even realizing how close it was at hand.
Were we really so afraid of our failure? Is it really a challenge of life or death whether we succeed or fail? What do we really have to lose? We won’t fail any less by never trying. The Creator intended Hope for our Highest Dreams. We may not see all the details, but if we hold a Spark of Faith and Hope in what we CAN see, our Justice will be Faith turned into Believing. All we ever have to do is ask in Humility for a Divine Provision to overcome our Human limitation.
To all my relations, may we set our course by what we are able to See from Above. May we imagine our Spirit’s Vision, our Vision of Knowing. May we rely on the Eyes of Spirit to uphold the Vision that sees into the future. May we imagine our own Human vision extended beyond 20/20 to perfect 1.9 miles/1.9 miles. May we marvel at the Miracle that such Vision even exists on Earth for any living thing. May we give thanks for a Vision that will be brought into view with crystal clarity. May we know because we can See it that it was Intended to be within our grasp. May we realize all the possibilities that didn’t even exist before in our Consciousness. May we look back to see how much of the landscape of our life has already changed. May we see the ground we’ve made and Know we are already well on the way. May we Know all we have to do to maintain our Stability is to keep our eyes on the prize. May we Believe for each other, when we can’t see it for our Self. The Higher our Hopes and Aspirations, the further we’ll see into the future. May we remember the Magic of Gratitude.
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.
Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation.Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions,cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance. Totem-Eagle. Powerful energy for success in worldly affairs, due to far seeing vision. Ability to create masses of money and abundance through an intellectual type of profession. Eagle asks for what he desires and manifests it. Professor, lawyer, teacher, leader.
