MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality. In the Unity of Tone 1, our Consciousness was One with the Creator. On Tone 2, our Consciousness is turned to our Self. Human discerns all things through a perspective of Duality – comparing one thing to another. We are creatures of Duality, in the symmetry of our form, the right and left ways of thinking, the body and the Spirit. Even our experience of reality is Above and Below. When all things are drawn into Balance, we are returned to Unity.
Tone 2 is Human’s day to conceive a way forward. We consider an Intention that was inspired by the Divine thoughts of the Creator. On Tone 2, we naturally feel separated from the Whole – we long to be reunited as the One.
The Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena is awakening us to our own Spiritual Gifts of Knowing from the Heart. We could recognize on Tone 2 that the CHICCHAN in our heart is leading us to a Divine Intention. This very longing to be One is guidance from our Heart. Spirit is ALWAYS with us guiding a way. On every Tone 2, Spirit moves us to Choose a Dream for Unity. Our Gift of CHICCHAN is always working perfectly. The CHICCHAN trecena intends for us to Know it.
Transformer/CIMI is a Sign of a Major Life Change, one the magnitude of Life and Death. The glyph illustrates the face of Death to remind us that something always dies when something new is born. The Consciousness of our Gifts will turn things around. The Happy Ending that is planned for this beginning is 13 Earth/CABAN. The promise that lies in our future is a Divine way of Movement on Mother Earth, in Consciousness of the Truth that is always held in our Heart.
CIMI reminds us that Chaos will be the first Sign of Major Life Change. In order to walk in the new Light of our Spirit, an old way must die. We have to learn a new language in our heart. The Spirit moves in many ways and is tied to our emotions. We could reason that we also get the goose bumps and gut feelings that generate the sense of danger. Tone 2 is intended as a day of Divine Discernment. We will use our CHICCHAN to make a Choice of Direction. We only get into to trouble when we are moved by emotions, when we move on emotions without the Divine Discernment of what they mean. CHICCHAN intends to help us translate the language of the Heart.
CIMI brings the first Awakening of Knowing as our Gift of Clairvoyance. Transformer/CIMI holds the Gift to see the Future. This is the Gift CIMI uses to help us through Life’s Major Changes. CIMI relies on the future it knows in the Heart, instead of what is seen by Human eyes. Just like a snake, CIMI believes what it feels enough to be moved by it.
CIMI is a day of Comfort through Change. The Destiny of CIMI is the midwife and hospice nurse, the one noted as a “soft hand” that would stay by our side as we go through the chaos of change. We lose our “presence of mind” in the middle of chaos. We can see that the way things have been is passing away. Yet, in the middle of it, we’ve yet to see the evidence of exactly what it will be. Just like a mother in labor, it’s hard to see beyond the moment.
CIMI shows us how to Balance our thoughts and emotions in the middle of the upheaval, by using our Gift of CHICCHAN to move our thoughts and experiences of Spirit to a future destination. The mother in labor and the one who struggles between Life and Death, will always Know Peace when we turn to Spirit’s Consciousness of the future. Our Spirit is a Divine thing, not bound by Time or Place. (You Know it. Your Spirit has traveled back in Time. When you are present in the past, re-living the experience, you will feel the CHICCHAN again.) Our Spirit’s experience is eternal. Through this gift we can find our Divine Guidance from any Time and Place.
CIMI balances our emotions by reminding us of the Blessings that lie in the future. The Gift to See it is ignited. CHICCHAN is our Gift for Discernment. CHICCHAN touches our emotions to illuminate a Choice. A sense of danger doesn’t necessarily mean we’re supposed to run away. Neither is the sense of Joy a reason to leap forward. Those are just the raw emotions. We have to discern them to know what they mean. Knowing is a Gift of Truth. Truth always leads a Divine way. We’ll always gravitate toward Joy, but we don’t have to run from Fear – it’s a SIGN to Look for our Truth.
In the Truth we’ll remember that a Divine Creator intends all things for Good. CHICCHAN can help us Know our Own Fears and face them for the illusions that they are. We learned we can always look down for the footprints of a Jaguar. We can remember we’re being guided. We can walk in stealth like the Jaguar. We can claim our own invisibility from anything that could harm us. There is a way of Spirit, flexible and fluid, to feel our way. We can shape-shift to the Truth of Divine Provision to move beyond danger.
Like a snake we are intended to press close to Mother Earth where we are grounded by a Vibration of Love. The snake can teach us to press on through the matters of Life, and to use Resistance as a Source of Movement. We can press through.
The Road/EB trecena presented a new experience about Major Life Change that I will remember for the future. I had an Intention. I thought I did a pretty good job from the Human end, taking the steps that were necessary. I felt really good about my effort. Then, all of a sudden everything fell apart. The ducks were already in a row. New success was assured. The initial response was a little sad, like “something will always stand in my way, no matter how hard I try.” Though, this is exactly where I am able to see the Transformation in myself. I KNOW that’s not the truth anymore. I Know well enough, to see it as a little left over chaos, and the only postponement is a matter of Divine Timing. The sad feelings of CHICCHAN identity the perception of a Loss of Love. With the Consciousness to discern that feeling, we’ll remember an Eternal Source we can turn to – instead of running away. We can learn something about our future from every emotion when we discern them as a direction for our Spirit to move toward the Truth.
God is always with us on the Road to our Destiny. We are never alone, but are Moved by Spirit in the direction of our Divine Provisions. We can always Know our Future. We Know our Divine Future in Relationship with the Creator. We can stand on Divine Truth to always Know what lies ahead is a Miracle of a Dream coming True. We’ll remember who Inspired the Dream, and we’ll Remember who holds the Authority over The Creation. We can see the Future anytime we choose to look at it. We only have to be in Communion with the Creator when we look, so the eyes of Human and the eyes of our Spirit are Balanced – looking together. A Divine Spirit will always reveal the Truth.
I’m beginning to Believe there’s always one last push we must make to birth our Dream. It may feel like the hardest push, just because we don’t Know it’s the last push. It was beyond Human’s knowing that it was the last push. Only in the delivery will we realize how close we were. The push FELT the hardest, because somewhere in our Spirit – we’re done with it, over it already, and ready to move on. God is with us. God knows our Heart. God knows when we reach our limit. We could know our future, that at every limit we reach – how close we really are to a Miracle. One last push of Faith will manifest the Blessing in the Future.
It was the same with the Dream of Ek’ Balam. There were lots of things to push through. I remember the last push. All the pieces were coming together. The day before departure all the last provisions were being made. I had a flat tire and found 3 that needed to be replaced. It was a Miracle that I had the provision to take care of it. (Imagining a flat tire on the way to the airport.) I wasn’t very divine with those people. Then I went to an ATM to get some cash – I was counting the money as I walked away, when something led me to double-check for the ATM card. I’d left it in the machine. By the time I made my way back, it was beeping it’s last 10 seconds before it captured the card. A Divine Provision of Consciousness was my salvation.
Spirit will lead us to our Human threshold. To reach the Higher Ground of Spiritual Growth, we have to reach beyond the limits we’ve known before. Spirit Knows that Human needs to believe in the Power of our own Intentions. Spirit will lead us to the door that Human gets to open in a final Leap of Faith. Our heart will be led to make it.
Don’t believe what you see with Human eyes. Chaos was never intended to be our Perception of Life… but the perception of a Major Change still in the works. We never have to choose chaos as the Truth. We’ve already learned what Truth feels like so we could always Know it. Remember? With Truth there are no lingering questions. Truth is never confusing. Truth always offers a Direction of Wisdom. Truth Resolves a Way. If we still see chaos, and see no way to go on under our current perception of reality, we Know the Truth. “This can’t go on – I’m done with it.” It’s the Divine Truth – we feel that Truth. We can depend on it to be True in our future. It’s just another push.
The Element of Fire is with us throughout this trecena of Serpent/CHICCHAN. We can continue to fan the flames of Divine Discernment with our Sacred Breath. Breath will be an integral part of every Delivery by Fire. Breath will fire the flames of Transformation. When a Mother is in labor, Breath is given to the pain. We also tend to avoid our pain. But this pain holds the very Fire to change us. Our K’iche friend in Guatemala was taught by her Elders to sit with the pain. To ALLOW the fires of Transformation to Burn, like the working of Alchemy. Sitting with our pain, breathing into our pain, Human will be changed by the tempering of our Spirit. The Fire of Chicchan will yield the Sword of our Spirit – the Truth of God With Us.
Tone 2 is a day to imagine a dream. We’ll naturally be led by duality, making comparisons between one thing and another. It’s a day to pay attention to the two sides of our Self. We’ll discern a Divine Direction when we identify Spirit as our guidance system of Truth. By now, it should be easy to tell the thoughts of Ego from the Truth of Spirit. Ego raises questions of whether we can or we can’t, whether we’re worthy or not, whether we can follow through or not. Hopefully, we’ll see that as a Sign to use a different source for our perception. Our Spirit will Know how close we are to a Miracle. Spirit will lead us to a Dream to reunite the Whole. The Dream will be a Blessing we see clearly enough to push through from the Heart.
CIMI resides in the North, the place of Divine Wisdom. Holding the Element of Air, CIMI relates to the mind and our faculties of Consciousness. CIMI reminds us to use the Sacred Breath to change our mind.
To all my relations, may we be CIMI to our Self. May we quiet our own fears the way CIMI leads us to do – by looking into the Future. We can bear the pain of any Now by remembering it holds a Meaning and Purpose for our future. May we remember to Breathe the Sacred Breath that restores and regenerates our Heart and Mind as a Provision for Discerning the Truth. May we accept Now as holding a very Divine Purpose. May we see the Truth of chaos, so we’ll know we’re still in the process and not the end of a Major Life Change. May we not back our Self into a corner, imagining there’s no way out. May we slither, bend, push through, to release the old skin that was no longer big enough for our Spirit. May we know the Joy of Spirit’s release, knowing we are never cornered by our Human limits. In Human’s corner is one a Spirit that can slip out of its skin to deliver Human through every new Creation and Truth of the Creator’s Provision of Spirit.
May we be Grateful for the Gifts of Knowing and for the Creator’s Divine Intention to Intervene. May we be grateful that NOW is the time to Know them and learn how they work. This entire trecena calls us to pay attention to our Gift of Knowing, our gut feelings, our emotions – not as Truth, but as the Sign there is Truth to be discerned. May we Know it Today, on Tone 2, as our own Feelings will be inclined to long for the Love of one another that we Remembered in Unity with the Creator. May we Know this very Longing, is guiding us to a Dream that will manifest the Happiness of Oneness in our Heart. May we Breathe in the Light of the Creator for the Truth we need to make the Leap of Faith into the Flow of Love. May we be led by our Heart’s Desire.

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.
2 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.
Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.
