MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. Comprehension is the process of Consciousness that seats an Eternal Truth. It requires both the Consciousness of the Human mind, and the Consciousness of Spirit. Comprehension completes Discernment as Truth is shared by the Heart.
The Truth will work as an eternal resource of Wisdom. When Truth is Acknowledged by our Heart it becomes the “current operating truth” of our body of Consciousness. We Know Truth when we Feel it. Through comprehension, we acknowledge our Question was Answered.
Divine Truth will stand on its own two feet. Comprehension is a state of mind that no longer questions, but Knows. Our Divine Journey is a living Quest for Truth. Even when we Know the Truth, there will always be an Ascension to a Higher Truth about Unconditional Love. We learn something new through every application that grows our Collective Wisdom of Experience.
Night/AKBAL is the Light that always shines in the darkness. AKBAL is positioned in the West, the direction of our Unknown Experiences. AKBAL holds the Element of Water and a symbol of our Emotions. Water is the Body that holds the Ether of our Spirit. Through Sacred Breath, the Human body incorporates the Oxygen into our own Life Blood.
In a realm of Spirit where the Oxygen is Unconditional Love, Night/AKBAL assimilates the Consciousness of Love through the Heart. AKBAL holds the potential for mystical experiences, connecting to the Heart our faculties of Consciousness. AKBAL can Balance the Mind with the Heart so that every Discernment will include the Truth of the Heart. AKBAL speaks to us in our Dreams as the Shining Light that Believes in every Dream we imagine. AKBAL connects the Conscious and the Unconscious. AKBAL can carry our Faith in a Dream beyond the veil to the “other side.” AKBAL seats the Memory in the darkness of our Unknown Thoughts, so that we wouldn’t have to be Conscious to Know it. Our mind will Remember Truth we find in agreement with our Heart. In the future, our Heart can present the Truth our Human mind will Remember.
Night/AKBAL speaks to us as an Audible Voice that speaks its Love directly to our own Heart. AKBAL KNOWS the Truth we most need to take to Heart, because AKBAL knows our unconscious thoughts. This is a day to pay attention to all our Dreams, whether we are sleeping or awake. AKBAL guides a Communion of Spirit in the realm of our Dreams.
The Cherokee Day Sign is The Hearth, the Sacred Fires that burn through the Night. This is the counsel fire where the Elders, Ascended Masters, Guardian Angels and Divine Spiritual Guides gather around in Spirit to fan the Fire of our Dreams. From a place on the “other side” they are Faithful and always One with us. Our Dreams were their Dreams, generations before. ALL our Hearts were seeded with the Same Dream of Finding the One Source of Eternal Love. We all Dreamed of someone who could guarantee Love and Happiness on Mother Earth. Each generation dreamed it for themselves and even more for their next generation. The Creator seeded our First Dream of Love through our First Consciousness that we were One.
We were born with the Truth to Believe in all our Dreams. Today, Spirits from “the other side” will fan our embers of Love into a Light we will always be able to see in the Darkness. The glyph illustrates a Revelation of Light as curtains – the veil between dimensions – is drawn back for us to see the Love our Spirit already knows. We will comprehend a Divine Discernment when the Truth we hold in our Conscious thoughts, matches the Unseen Truth in our Heart. Wisdom is ours eternally, when we have discerned the Truth from our Heart.
AKBAL can present a Dark Night. It reminds me of the Ek’ Balam ruins. Each sacred site of the Maya represents an Intention of Initiation. There is a Divine Intention of Consciousness held by each Sacred Site. Ek’ Balam, the ruins of the Black “Star” Jaguar is known for its Intention of an Illumination of Darkness. There are two ways to interpret that intention. My initial understanding was that the darkness would be swept away by a Divine Illumination. This is True, but not in the way I expected. Ek’ Balam held the Light for Darkness to Be Seen. Spirit led us to this Time and Place for a Sacred Ceremony of Forgiveness on behalf of the Whole.
My arrival wasn’t the Holy Presence of Humility I’d Dreamed it would be. The experience would Lead to a Revelation of Humility. I’d imagined the experience at the top of the pyramid, a Human accomplishment that would be marked by a Divine Illumination. I nearly fell out of the car from the heat and humidity when we first arrived. Staying on my feet on the ground was only possible by the help of those around me. Even when I found my own log to sit on so close to the ground, it rolled me off backwards. But for the help of strangers, I suppose I would have had to crawl around on the ground to find my own way to get back up. My Illumination didn’t happen High Up, but Low Down next to the ground.
AKBAL holds the Power to reach deep down within us to plant the Illumination of a Divine Truth. When we think all Hope is Lost by the depths of our own limitation, AKBAL illuminates the Darkness so we Know Everything Forgiven by the Truth of Unconditional Love. We have to pass through the Darkness for Human to See just how bright the Fires of Love burn for us.
Given a new Truth, our Consciousness will apply it to the Wisdom of our Known Experiences. We’ll be led back to old experiences of Lost Love. We can Know by a Higher Truth that Love was even there. All our illusions can be broken when a Love draws the mind to a new Truth already Known by our Heart. A new Truth will be the Authority of our unconscious thoughts. We’ll see the obstacles were only an illusion that didn’t consider Unconditional Love as a Truth. A Voice will remind us that our Heart Knows Love holding the Power to manifest Every Dream of Happiness.
Like the Air we Breathe, the Truth of Love insures a state of mind that is capable to Know Love when we see it. What if we discerned every Human expression as a message about Love? When someone complained, we’d know they were complaining about a lack of something they Love. Applying our common Truth of Love, we would see a lot of things differently.
When we Know the Truth of Love and pay attention, we will always know a way for Right Relationship. We will see the Love that every Human is asking to be fulfilled. We will have the Consciousness to be the Hero that Sees, Hears, Acknowledges, and Understands.
Think about that. What more do YOU want from any exchange from another Human Being? Chances are we all want the same thing, just to be Seen, Heard, Acknowledged, and Understood. We don’t have to agree to Understand and Care. The same experiences will mean something different to each one of us based on our own experiences.
I’ve saved something from each of the Sacred Ceremonies I’ve attended, though I took nothing from Ek’ Balam. A small piece of bark was caught up in my clothing, found when I unpacked my suitcase. No one else could understand what it means to me. It was a gift Received that wasn’t Taken. To me, that little piece of bark is a Sacred Gift from a Divine Time and Place.
We think that Love is something we have to search for High and Low. We imagine Love “happening to us.” We can spend a lifetime waiting for it “to happen,” searching for our One and Only “soul mate.” How many people have you met in a decade? We imagine finding one in a million who could Truly Know us, Understand us, and Love us. This Soul Mate is the one we could depend on to share Truth and Love. We look for One, because One is a Truth we Remember in our Heart.
Being One was our very first discernment. It was our Initial Truth. When we were children, we expected everyone to be the One that Loved us. We became disillusioned when the world didn’t return what we expected as our first Truth. Our Human Ego, reacting from emotions. imposed a filter of Love as a One and Only… somehow lost among the crowd. We could pass on the street and never know how close we were to Love.
To clear the Road to our Destiny, the Tzolk’in marks Here and Now as the Time to Know a Truth about Love and the One and Only. We’re offered the missing piece that completes a new picture of Truth we’ll always be able to Remember. We’ll See and Acknowledge a Divine Discernment as all our pieces of Truth are stitched back together. We’ll see Truth as an illusion is swept away by our Heart.
We were Created for a Meaning and Purpose of Love. Love was intended as what we would grow up to be. A Divine Creator of Love would never create One chance in a Million to Know it. A Supreme Creator’s would be our Soul’s Mate from the very beginning to the very end. The Creator’s Love would make ALL Love Multiply to Abundance.
Our Human Consciousness is a “computer of discernment,” programmed to identify every Expression of Love. Our Spirit will See what Human can’t See, and Human will Know the Divine Discernment in the Heart. We’re the One and Only. God already “found us” as a Dream of Creation. We’re the Creator’s Highest Creation on Earth. Our Heart Knows God is always Here and Now.
AKBAL is a dreamy kind of day when we’re likely to feel disassociated from the “world of reality.” The Realm of Spirit is the “reality” that’s Real to our Consciousness, the “Real” us. One body is as good as another for the Divine Purpose of Love. We Choose who we are Inside, and that defines our Identity. We hold the Power to Define our Self and our Life by Love.
AKBAL offers the Spiritual Gift of Believing in our Dreams. When we realize that Divine Love was right beside us, we’ll Believe Love is Inspiring our Dreams. We’ll know that in spite of all our Human limitations, Every Life is Divinely Worth Saving. We are empowered for a new Beginning, seeing Love everywhere in our Past, Present, and Future.
To all my relations, may AKBAL open our Heart so we are prepared to Receives the Light of Unconditional Love. May we Know Unconditional Love is beyond Human understanding on purpose, so we’d never know the end of Love. May AKBAL break us free of limits we imagine in our subconscious mind. May we Know a Jaguar Spirit is leading us in stealth through the Magic of Gratitude. We hold the same Magic when we are Grateful for Who We Are, and the Gift of our Own Time and Place.
May our Heart seat the Reasoning of Love. May we Dream of all the Love our Heart’s could discover. May we count our Dreams as the Highest Gifts for Creation. May we Believe in “God With Us” from the Beginning to the End.
in lak’ech, I am another you

12 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)
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.
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.

JULY 5, 2018: REPORT ON THE HOUSE FINCH
The little mother is still sitting on the eggs in her nest. July 4th was a challenge to Peace and Tranquility with booms and fireworks that grew louder as day turned into night. It was another Sign of how our Human way of doing things seldom takes into account the impact on the Whole. As I’ve become a “mother hen” myself, watching over this experience, I’ve wondered if my fears have been influenced by the Expectant Mother Finch. This Life on the balcony has taken on so much greater meaning. The experience has helped me see the ways of Spirit more clearly, and the Power and Communion that are created by Love.
Each morning she watches as I lay the daily seed out on the balcony. We look at each other as I exchange my morning words of love. It’s easier to see the love we exchange with our domesticated pets. It’s harder to imagine, and more miraculous when we sense it from the living things in nature. When we look at each other, I feel the Ether of Spirit in the air between us.
I’m growing to love all the more the experiences of life seen only through the realm of Spirit. Last night, I set my ipad next to the door playing a YouTube recording of “Brahms’s Lullaby,” a peaceful sound the Mother might focus on to assuage her fear of unexpected explosions. Her babies are due to hatch any day. I couldn’t help wondering with all the “sounds of war” if they might be afraid to venture out of their shell. So, the music was for all of them. This “crazy” life of Spirit makes Human life all the more worth living.
I don’t know how many eggs could fit in such a small nest and I question the room to hold a new family. (Wikipedia says, likely 4 to 6.) The eggs are less than 3/4″ long (about 1.9 cm). Their gestation cycle makes them due by the end of this trecena. It’s a miracle just to imagine the lives now held inside these eggs, preparing to break through to a world they’ve never seen.
Reading up on what’s to come, I was surprised to find that the Male Finch is going to take over the care and feeding. Once the chicks are born, the mother will clear out the shells and leave the nest for the Dad to move in. He’s present and close this morning, hanging out in a cubby in the rafters next to hers instead of perched below. He seems busy at something so I wonder if he’s been collecting seeds there. His behavior is changed to reflect something like a Dad in the waiting room. I can’t help feeling that God’s living things show us what Love would look like, if we didn’t have a choice… if we just lived that way by instinct. It’s raised my consciousness to the Love between me and my cat, Shadow. We KNOW we communicate with our pets in Spirit. Maybe they are gifts given so we could Know the Language of the Heart.
I’m so grateful to report that everything is still going according to the Divine Plan, and that the Mother made it through what could have been a dark night for her little soul. Tiny little Sparks of Light are preparing to break through from their darkness in the void, into a world where they will soon realize they were born to fly.
