MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
I now SEE that two days ago was a Global Burner. It means we’ve released excessive energy and over-stimulation. Through a Holy Fire we’ve been Restored to Right Relationship. The Elders say, “Nothing is ever lost. The moment we Remember, it is done.”
On Tone 6 we move into the Peak Energy of the trecena. An effort of Intention takes on Flow through a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. The Intention of the Road/EB trecena is to open a New Road to our Future – the one we would have chosen, “if we’d only known then, what we know now.” Now we Do Know, and the matter is as simple as applying the Wisdom of what we Know.
Tone 6 is the energy of Momentum. In the beginning, the Vibration we brought to Life was still defining its own Frequency. On Tone 6 we’ve completed the motions that establish the pattern of the wave’s movement. On Tone 6 we hold the Consciousness that our Intention is moving forward in a stable direction. To reach our greatest distance all we have to do is apply the Power of our Spirit’s Movement.
Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth as a symbol of Perpetual Movement. Movement is the Sign of a Living Thing. So is Mother Earth One in Moving Us toward a Divine Illumination. Earth is the Source of everything Human Knows about Life. She holds the information through all her Elements, Living Things, and Patterns of Movement. The Truth that she is guiding us to the Light would be illustrated by every Sunrise. Through both the Light and Dark, in Balance, there would be Beauty Unique to every Place in every Time.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Heron, a nahaul of perpetual migration. The Heron is also known as the Phoenix who rises from the ashes of its past. Through and Empowerment of Wisdom, we died to a past of being Lost in the Unknown. The Owl gave us the Gift of Seeing in the Darkness. With eyes to see into the Unknown, and the Wisdom of our Truth to apply, we can Choose what we draw from the Darkness. We can make out what we always wanted to be and the Dreams that were just a speck in the distance. In the Darkness of the Unknown we hold the Power to Choose what we will Rise to Be. We hold the Provision that is Prepared for a New Sunrise. Darkness can be our friend.
Earth/CABAN resides in the East, the Direction of a Divine Inspiration and the place of the Sunrise. Living for the Sunrise, and another Sacred Chance to start again, we would always turn to the treasures of our Experience to discern a Higher Way in our Dreams. When we hold the Wisdom to Forgive, we’re no longer tethered to the past – we’re Free to Look Back at the Blessing for the Truth of Progress instead of failure.
The Aztec Day Sign is the Ollin, the most recognizable image at the center of the stone calendar. It marks 20 cycles of Time. There is a Time for every Purpose under the Sun. 20 relates to all the Day Signs, the different archetypes and perspectives through which we can Discern Wisdom. Each one has it’s own Divine Time and Place. We should never be sorry for our current state of Consciousness. Each perspective is a necessary part of our Transformation. Just as we are entering the era of our Highest Transformation of Human Ethics, it was Necessary to Know Power, both the Light and Dark of it, to make the Divine Discernment for a Wiser Choice of Harmony and Equity. Kinich Ahau at the center is the “brightest illumination” of Ahau. My discernment of the fierce face is the Almighty Intention of a Divine Illumination.
Ollin (ah-len) comes with the advice that it is lucky to apply the “active principle,” and unlucky to apply the “passive principle.” It’s telling us to use our mind and to think – to please apply what we just learned from Wisdom/CIB. If we do, we’re at the threshold of momentum. We’ll experience this time as second nature. We won’t have to reason our way through it, the Truth we need will come to us in the moment. We’ll know it, if we pay attention – and make our own Wise Choice. Ollin is a day when it’s said we can “see what we are becoming,” and a day to “Move Forward with All our Heart.”
Tone 6 and Earth/CABAN amplify the Momentum of our Movement. When we see the Abundance in the very place we are, we can take off like the Heron, knowing that Abundance is what we will always be led to when we follow the Instincts of our Heart. We’ll Know we hold the Power of our own Love to lead us in the right direction – a direction that may look totally different from someone else, that will lead us just the same to a Divine Destiny. We will always arrive at the right place when we’re led by our own Love. Today we can Believe in our own Power to Rise from the ashes of our past.
CABAN holds the Element of Fire. Fire holds the power of transmutation, changing the form of other elements into another. Fire Burns in our Heart for the things we Love. A Holy Fire is ignited in our Heart as we Know we are moving in synchronicity with something greater than our Self. We were where we were supposed to be – not lost at all. We were who we were meant to be – every perspective we went through was the Blessing of What we Know Now. We were supposed to Know it Now. And we are who we are meant to be for this Time and Place of our own journey to Destiny. No matter what choices we made, Today is always offered as the Turning Point.
To all my relations, may we move with all our Heart at this turning point on the Road to our Divine Destiny. May we know that a Rhythm and Flow is already in place as a Divine Provision. So, whatever steps we take will take us exponentially farther than we Dreamed we could go. May we Know by the Fire in our Heart that we are being changed in the process – in every passage from the Darkness to the Light. May we seize the Unknown in the Dark applying the Vision of Spirit’s Dream, and seize the Day for an application of Dreams born through Darkness. May we reach Higher and Farther than we think we’re capable to go… applying the Wisdom that we still don’t know everything now, that we’ll know in the future.
May we Love Life and Love our Self for all the ways we Are and Were, to Know all the ways we Can Be.
May we Offer a Blessing to the Fire. May we write the words “injustice” and “inequality” on pieces of paper to be burned to ash. A shamanic Elder taught us to put the ashes in equal parts of soda and water and freeze it. Then at the New Moon, we would release it into a moving body of water. The Alchemy of the experience was to see the things we were ready to let go, transmuted, stabilized, and released into a new freedom of movement. We could do the same to prepare for a release at the New Beginning of the Spring Equinox.
May we hold Gratitude and Appreciation for the Fire of Love that breaks through to Change our Heart by Divine Intention. May we Return our Love through Mother Earth to claim Holy Ground for the Whole in the New Day Dawning by her movement.

THE WAY THINGS WERE: When I set up the “Earnestly Debra” blog on WordPress in 2014, it began as an intention to share some kind of Wisdom, without a clue of what it might be. I see now I was trying to find some way to reach out. My first, and the most popular post by far of any on this website, is instructions for a self-made heater for $10. (It may not be wisdom of much merit.) It gets twice the traffic of any post ever published on this site. It’s a milestone to remember. I’m wearing “game day Seahawks” fingernail polish in the photos. I wouldn’t be caught dead in branded colors today. 🙂 Somewhere, I refused to promote any third-party identities. I was searching in the dark. And it all began around a Holy Fire of 3 candles.
HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY. It’s a “lucky day” for shamrocks, and always reminds me of my Grandpa who collected 4-leaf clovers. We make our own luck by claiming it. This is a lucky day to claim it. 🙂 To my Irish ancestors, “Erin go bragh!”
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 dsonation to help cover his medical care is included in the Update on Don Alejandro’s health shared by his dear friend Joseph. Thank you Tata for all the Wisdom you share.
UPDATE: March 2, 2019 Video message of gratitude from Don Alejandro.
TRECENA OF ROAD/EB (HUMAN)
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and insight on the Uinal and Portal Days of the Road/EB trecena.
6 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
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.
