MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The next 13 days…
The Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena ignites our Consciousness for dynamic Spiritual Developments. The Serpent is a symbol of Enlightenment and Illumination. We are Growing to Spiritual Maturity. CHICCHAN is the catalyst that awakens all our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing.
CHICCHAN holds the Gift of “Lightning in the Blood.” This is known as the Sixth Sense by the Maya that “bestirs the blood to speak.” CHICCHAN raises our Consciousness to our Connection through the Heart. CHICCHAN is associated with Kundalini energy. Through the Gift of CHICCHAN we will Feel our Way to our Divine Destiny.
6th Uinal: The 6th uinal generates the momentum for a Rhythm and Flow of Movement. This is the energy of the Great Athlete. Like a Dancer who has practiced all the steps for the performance that becomes an Expression of Art. With the Gift of CHICCHAN we will Feel the Momentum of Spirit.
The 6th uinal, like the 6th Tone empower dynamic developments. CHICCHAN energy is defined as a revelation or epiphany that is accompanied by our physical senses. A snake’s sense of sight relies on vibration. It feels its prey by the vibrations of Mother Earth. The Serpent is a symbol of “seeing clearly.”
PEAK DAYS: Peak Performance
Peak Days of the trecena mark significant times of Spiritual Growth and Transformation, and the Reciprocity between the Above and the Below.
- 6 Dog/OC will engage the Flow and Momentum of Unconditional Love.
- 7 Monkey/CHUEN, the Alchemist and Weaver of Time, will establish our balance between the material and spiritual world.
- 8 Road/EB the Day Sign of the Human will appear in its zenith with the Truth to Believe in our own Divine Destiny.
- 9 Reed/BEN will complete the Transformation in Harmony and Equity to empower a Divine Family.
OUR HIGHER GROUND: The Road/EB trecena completed a set of “Light” and “Dark” trecenas. First, Storm/CAUAC brought the Light of the Unbridled Freedom to be our Self. In the Road/EB trecena we offered the application (Dark) and the path that Human was given with a Meaning and Purpose for every Time. With the Wisdom of the Experience Below, we learned the “Unbridled Freedom To Be” includes who we are Now and Who we were created to Always Be. The Road trecena didn’t give instructions on how to change our Self. Our Transformation was already written in the Seed. Instead of asking how to fix our Self, we would Build a Relationship with the One that Knows we are Perfect as we Are. We learned our strength lies in a Relationship. To build a Relationship in Spirit means spending Time together. Through a dedicated daily practice of Turning to Spirit, a Divine Relationship would guarantee Choices that would make us Happy on our Road to our Destiny.
We Ascended with the Wisdom of how Beautiful our lives were meant to be. The “hard road” of Human would be Balanced by the “easy road” of Spirit. Human always expects things Unknown to be Hard. It can seem hard to remember to add Love to every equation. When we make choices for Happiness we can eliminate all the other reasons.
Think of all the choices you make and the reasons you make them. There’s something we could choose right now that we know would make us happy. Why don’t we choose to carry it out? God will inspire the Choices AND the Provision of Movement. A Spirit within will maintain its Authority. When we’re Moved by Spirit, the body will follow.
A CYCLE OF LIGHT: NEW INSPIRATION
Serpent/CHICCHAN leads the Light of a New Inspiration. CHICCHAN is all about the Movement of Spirit. In perfect Balance, just as our physical body as the means for movement, so does Spirit move in the body. CHICCHAN offers the Quickening of Spirit. A Quickening is defined as an acceleration. A Divine Quickening stimulates, excites, awakens, and animates. In the process of Human gestation, the Quickening is the first movement the Mother feels in the womb. CHICCHAN is a catalyst of Spirit and will bring the Light of Inspiration through the Movement of Spirit in the body.
CHICCHAN holds the Element of Fire. Fire is the Element of Transmutation with the Force to change the form of matter. Through the Gift of CHICCHAN, we will be Changed by a Fire that burns in our Heart. CHICCHAN will ignites all our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing from Within.
Serpent/CHICCHAN arrives in the perfect Time and Place in the 6th uinal (column), under the Higher Intention of Flow and Rhythm of Movement. Fluidity and Flexibility are natural characteristics of the Serpent. The Snake “feels its way.” The Serpent is offers the Freedom to Grow and Expand by shedding old skins.
Sometimes we don’t allow changes in our Life when others expect us to be something else. A snake will strike out when they are backed into a corner. Through the Inspiration of CHICCHAN, we’ll have the Divine Discernment to make a Choice that is led by the Heart. Like always, we will all be going through this together. We must allow others to make new choices for their happiness. No Love will ever be Lost when we are in Communion with the Divine. Allowing the Freedom to Be is the essence of our Unbridled Happiness. The Freedom to Be is the most Divine Gift of Unconditional Love. CHICCHAN will light the fuse of Feeling the Truth in our Heart.
Tone 1 is the Beginning of a new creation. Our Intention will be guided by our new Wisdom of the Seed, adding the Wisdom of the Force that brings Movement and Life to its Meaning and Purpose. Tone 1 begins a new cycle of Creation in Unity with the Creator. Like the hour of our Awakening, we’re guided to spend a little extra time on the pillow to crystallize the Dream of Inspiration. It’s not a day for reasoning or figuring things out, but a day to be Open to Receive. Tone 1 is dedicated to a purpose of Communion with the Creator.
We start over from a position of inertia. Vigilant Consciousness will be the tool that helps us start out on the right foot. Tone 1 can be a low-energy day. I try to accommodate my schedule by using the Time for things that don’t require a lot of reasoning, like reorganizing my desk. I was able to accomplish a lot of cleaning on the last Tone 1, so I’m questioning again, whether it’s a “low-energy” day, or just a “low comprehension” day. Mindless activities leave our minds open to Inspiration.
On Tone 1 we can expect a charge of “lightning in the blood.” CHICCHAN’s inspiration will speak through the body. CHICCHAN reveals the Lightning in our Heart, the Ether of Light that magnetizes our Spirit to the Divine an the threads of Light that connect every Human heart. CHICCHAN is our Spirit’s Response to Life Experience that connects us.
A Quickening of Spirit grabs our Heart and sends the blood through our veins. We may feel it as goose bumps, or hair that stands on end, or as a Whole Body involuntary movement of our emotions. I saw a preview of CHICCHAN yesterday. In a story on the news, a father coming home from military service made a surprise appearance for his son that instantly grabbed my heart and drew my own tears. I once defined these emotions simply as empathy, something generated from my own feelings. Now I recognize it as the Gift of CHICCHAN. What I feel, I know was also felt by the ones that moved me. It was the strings between our Hearts that connects us to the experience. Our Spirit was moved by the Leap of another Spirit – we shared the Movement of Spirit.
CHICCHAN can transform us so we will be vested in one another’s Happiness. We will allow others to make their own Happiest Choices when we Know that their Happiness will make us Happy Too. By the same virtue, Knowing Happiness is a shared experience, we can be confident in making our own Happy Choices.
CHICCHAN will expand our heart for Divine Discernment. Love will awaken our Spiritual Gifts. We think we have to conjure our psychic gifts. Instead, we’ll learn they are Divine, always equally given, and always operating in perfect integrity. We don’t have to conjure CHICCHAN. All things Divine reach out to us. When we See and Acknowledge them, like rabbits, we’ll see them all over the place. Instead of trying to conjure what we want to know, we’ll learn to go with the Rhythm and Flow. When we let go of a Divine Gift, we’ll Know exactly what we are Divinely Meant to Know. (Remember, the Creator always shares what we need to know the most in every Time and Place.) We’ll learn how to use our Gift of CHICCHAN for its most Divine Purpose… to share our Happiness all around.
To all my relations, may we turn to the East to draw the Light of a new Sunrise. May we dedicate the time to Receive the Gifts of Spirit. May we give Spirit the priority in Unity with the Creator so Spirit can light the fuse to the strings between our hearts. May we pay attention so we will remember what our CHICCHAN feels like. Fires always burn hotter with Oxygen. May we open our minds through the Sacred Breath that attracts the Fire of Spirit. May we be conscious of Movement and Vibration wherever we go so our thoughts will be tuned in for the experiences that Spirit Intends to Share, so we will Know that we Know. In Humility, may we Kneel in Humility to a Creator who had such Divine plans for us. May we be Grateful for a Gift that was given, so Beautiful and Miraculous, the only way we would Know to ask for it is to ask for a Blessing of Divine Will. May we give thanks for a Divine Provision that can tie all our hearts together in Harmony and Equity.
with all my LOVE, in lak’ech, I am another you

TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and insight on the Uinal and Portal Days of the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena.
1 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.

UPDATE ON A DREAM THAT MANIFESTED AS A CREATION:
It was 1 Serpent/CHICCHAN in the last Tzolk’in round that inspired the Dream of a pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam. I will always remember Ek’ Balam as the first intentional manifestation of an “impossible Dream.” Going to the Mayan ruins was something I dreamed about and cried about, sure it was something I’d never get to experience. 1 Serpent/CHICCHAN lit the fuse to Believe it was possible. It inspired me to do something I’ve never done before. I reached out to share my dream. I started a gofundme page without expectations, as my call to the Universe. I disseminated the words of Creation for Dream of Happiness, because of CHICCHAN’s Inspiration that touched my heart. That One Dream changed everything. I will always KNOW that when we reach for something we Love, Believing in the Provision of Divine Intervention, the Creator will find a way, and we’ll KNOW the steps to manifest our Dream of Happiness. The Inspiration wasn’t all “light and roses.” It went deep. It touched the Truth that the only reason I never chose it was because I was afraid to make the Choice. In the Inspiration, my darkness was illuminated. I was given Power of Faith to go. CHICCHAN’s inspired the Jaguar Footprints that could lead me there.
