MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 represents Stability. Like the cube, the most stable of all forms, Tone 4 establishes the substance of form by its dimensions. Tone 4 sets the boundaries and parameters for a sense of orientation and “the rules of the game.” Tone 4 offers the Spiritual Tool for a foundation of thought.
Star/LAMAT illustrates Human as the Personification of Divine Light. LAMAT is a symbol of Venus, the Star that shines the brightest, second only to the Sun. LAMAT is the Star that is able to shine in both the Lightness and Dark, as the Morning and Evening Star. LAMAT encourages us to shine our Light of Love through all of life’s experiences, and to share our Light equally all around. The glyph notes the 4 directions. The K’iche see the glyph as the opening in the ground, as it is formed by an implement for planting the Seed. When the Seed of our Dream is planted from the Center, our Heart, we will Grow to Shine our Brightest Light.
LAMAT’s totem is the Rabbit, a caldron of Creation that Overflows with Love. Rabbit holds the power of sexuality, reproduction, and multiplication. LAMAT is said to be a day of “pure luck” with the potential for Instant Manifestation. What we focus on, what receives the Consciousness of our Love, will be Multiplied like the Rabbit multiplies. This is an important day to apply the Deer’s tool of Vigilant Consciousness. Think about what you want.
LAMAT is offering a foundation for Growing the Light of our Spiritual Gifts. The Consciousness of our Spiritual Gifts will grow through an application of Gratitude and Love for the Blessings. Today we are given our own Light to shine all around to see all the Gifts we can count as our Blessings.
Light begets Light and Love begets Love. Light holds the Divine Authority over the darkness. Based on this fundamental Truth, we’d know that darkness is only a passage toward the Light. The Light that shines in the darkness is our own Faith in the Creator’s Promise of Unconditional Love. The Love Human gives without condition with Forgiveness planned from the Beginning to the End, is the Light we hope to find in each other. We all know our limitations. The Love we look for, is the Light that sees the limitation, and Loves us just the same.
To manifest the Divine Justice of Harmony and Equity, we can’t pick and choose who is worthy of our Love. We can’t withhold Love, and we can’t give more to one than another. When we are loving all around, we stand in Balance of Love. We hold an equal expectation of Love. We don’t demand more of the one closest to us, because they love us. And, we can’t give more love, where love isn’t found to try to earn it. It isn’t fair to give more love to one than another. LAMAT can help us see where we demand more love, and where we focus our love.
When a Star turns its Light within, it implodes. Wherever we are giving more or less, there is a Divine Discernment to be made. A Divine Discernment always reveals the Meaning and Purpose. Why?
Star taught me about my lop-sided needs for Love, and the unconscious way of seeking it that was NOT based on the Wisdom of any discernment. I sought to make friends with one at work and they have not been open to the exchange. Somewhere I learned when someone doesn’t respond, I should try harder. When I visited this office, this was the person who received all my attention, but to no avail. I finally saw it on Star/LAMAT. This one person was in an office full of friendly people. They were always willing for a friendly exchange. It suddenly dawned on me, how little attention I gave to people who WERE open. Instead, I had returned over and over again in an effort that always failed.
THESE are the HAPPY CHOICES we need to use our Wisdom of Discernment to make. We can’t imagine that we aren’t always choosing what makes us happy. It seems like we’d do that automatically. Yet, I was doing something over and over again – this went on for years. When we are dedicated to look at our thoughts, we will see the Ego behind all our limitations. Gratitude and Love are the magic that can turn our thoughts around.
I think when we give love for the Reason to Receive, we must appear like a dark hole to another Spirit. We need something we’ve already assigned a Human source to Give. We pull ourselves off our Center of Love. We can create a habit of movement of always turning to another Human, instead of always turning to the Creator. We can set up a habit of seeking to Receive instead of Giving. We can stand on a Truth that anything we want, we only have to Give to Receive.
Our Spirit of CHICCHAN will help us discern the Vibrations of Life. We go through a personal discernment with every encounter of another Human Being. When I approach someone for conversation, I have an Intention to share. I know as soon as I approach them, if they are Open to conversation. If they are, the Happy Choice is to continue. I don’t have to invest extra effort if they are not interested. The Happy Choice is to offer a greeting and move on to another Happy opportunity.
We make so many choices for Happiness every day. I’m still thinking about the 12,000-60,000 average human thoughts per day. We’re prone to Rabbit Trails. We Know where they lead. We’re either following a trail of discovery on something we Love, or we can follow the Ego’s trail of “not enough” or worse. Our Spirit is witness to all our thoughts. Our Spirit deserves our consideration for Happiness. We can choose to follow the trails of Love for our Spirit’s experience. Love grows the Strength of our Spirit. By Choosing Happiness, we realize it IS a Choice. We begin to SEE it as a choice, the more it becomes a habit and a rhythm and pattern of movement. I once indulged my melancholy, because “I deserved” to be upset about it. Once we are conscious of that Reason, we’ll see how little sense it really makes. The choice gets so much easier. We become Conscious of the Time, the Moment we are given, to Choose Love.
Star/LAMAT lies in the South, the direction of our Relationships. LAMAT offers a way to always shine for each other in Right Relationship. We are meant to shine our Light Independently – so we will come to Know our own Light. We will have Right Relationships, when we don’t lean to one another, but shine our Light Equally together… all Giving, we will all Receive Equally.
The Light we Consciously Give today will be Multiplied to Abundance. This is a day to Love what we want and forget what we don’t want. I always feel the challenge on Star is my own Vigilant Consciousness. The energy of a Rabbit can be all over the place. A Rabbit can freeze in place, when it encounters a fear of danger. My strategy is to begin the day sharing my Divine Intention with the Creator in a prayer for Divine Intervention, Discernment, Faith, Love, and Divine Will. Then, if my mind trails off course, I Remember everything is held in the Hand of the Creator.
The Reason for shining our Light all around in the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena will establish the right use of the Spiritual Gifts. CHICCHAN is a Gift of Spiritual Power. If we use it to gain advantage in one direction or another, our Power will lose its Divine Purpose. We must shine equally to maintain the Reason we were created to shine. Our Spirit wants to shine in all directions. All Spirits want to experience the Truth that all Hearts ARE shining with Love. When we give more to the one “who doesn’t shine back” – we make the discernment that “they don’t shine enough.” (That becomes the Unseen Vibration of the Spirit’s Communion between us.) I expect that this person I couldn’t win as a friend, felt the vibe of my disappointment in all our exchanges, before a word was ever spoken. I was “giving Love” that I thought she “didn’t deserve.” We know Love. We can feel it and see it.
The Tzolk’in always presents the information that is the most important Truth for this Time and Place. I wonder if I am the only one surfing 100,000 thoughts per day. I may be only discerning 500. I can imagine this possibility of more thoughts and Choices than Human will be able to process, as the “end” of Transformation predicted by the Tun calendar. At the center of an accelerating spiral, everything happens at once. It’s Time to Receive the Divine Wisdom that the Answer is always to follow the Heart, Standing on the Reason of Love. The Deer is said to have the power to push away negative influences. Fear is always the worst Reason.
LAMAT holds the Element of Earth, the Substance and Matter of Who we Are. We are made of Stars. We are a Personification of Light made of the Matter of Stars. CHICCHAN reminds us of the Divinity of our Body. We are meant to share the Consciousness of what our Heart Feels and what our Body Feels. CHICCHAN can be a point of Consciousness anywhere in the body. We can Feel when Human carries the weight of the world on our shoulders. We can love the way we were Divinely made to Live and Recover, given a Body that tells us what is needed for the well-being of our Whole Self. CHICCHAN ignites the Knowing of our Forces of Life. We can multiply the Magic, holding Gratitude for everything that was conceived as a Human Being.
I don’t know if Human is the only creation that can see beyond Time. Other living things are conscious of the turning of the Seasons. Knowing we Know and Being able to Express what We Know is the only thing we Know for sure is special about us. Through every round of the Tzolk’in, there is a Time and Place for CHICCHAN to ignite the Spirit of the New Seed. We were the New Seed of this Tzolk’in round. Now we’re growing to maturity, thinking about the world we would create for the New Generation of our Self. This is a Time and Place to Believe and Be Grateful for the Gift of a Divine Body.
We can multiply the Blessings of Life to Abundance by being Grateful for the Whole of Life, Loving the Dark and Light of it just the same. If we always lived in the Light of Divine Consciousness, there would be no way to explore Our experience of living. Darkness is the place where each Human Being can shine the Beauty of their own Special Light.
We can claim that Today is a Sacred Event, one like every other Sacred Day, when we are given everything to Love. When we Stand on the Truth of a Dream that Begins in Love with the Blessing of Divine Will, we can already Know the Ending. The Time in the middle, we will no longer have to “bear.” Instead, it will be like a movie with a surprise ending so unexpected and Beautiful, you want to go back and see the Meaning and Purpose of everything that happens in between. Through our Gifts we can see the Miracles of Now. Standing on a Truth like that, the Happiness of Living could only overflow and shine in all directions, both in Darkness and Light.
To all my relations, may we be Conscious of the Love that Overflows around us. May we Intend Happiness and Joy for our Spirit by Believing in what Spirit Knows, that the Whole of everything is Divine. The stories of our Lives are Held in the Creator’s Hands. Through the Gift of Unconditional Love and the Free Will of Choice, we will Know the Joy of Choosing what was Divinely Planned. May we Love everything Above and Below the Sun, Moon, and Stars. May we Love Darkness and the Unknown from which we can draw a Creation of Love in the Light of Every New Day.
May we see the Stars as Sparks of a Divine Creator’s Light. Each Human life was meant to tell a story of one of the Creator’s Unlimited Possibilities of Creation. Our Lives will be as Beautiful as the Creator’s Dream of it with Every Choice to Shine by the Light of the Creator’s Will. May we Know that we were Created for ALL our Light to be Seen by the Creator. Feeling the Whole Experience of Love and Expressing it is a Force of Magic in Who We Are. May we imagined how much Loving Thought went into our Creation. May we Know we were Conceived by the Creator as a Seed of Divine Love, that would Grow into Our Own Whole Expression of Divine Love, and the Divine Abundance of it all around. Our Love will Multiply.
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.
4 Star/LAMAT (Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA)
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.
Star/LAMAT: Star energy is multiplication of all things to abundance. Star has been associated with the fertility of rabbits for its ability to multiply. As each sun in the sky, Star persons shine equally in all directions. This natural tendency of harmony and balance can become compulsion, motivating Star to be too agreeable and too generous, rejected gifts cause fear and resentment. When a Star believes it has been given too much, they are weakened or may even collapse. In this “Black Hole” state, Stars are prone to verbal jousting and arguing to force their point of view on everyone.
Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA: Symbol-Venus, The Morning Star cycle of 260 days and Evening Star cycle of another 260 days, inspired the 13 numbers, 20 Day sign Sacred Calendar. Rabbit is the Trickster of Cherokee culture, matching the Coyote in other nations. The personification of Light and New Life, Sunrise, the scion (a first-generation descendant) of the Moon-Father of earth children, the Rabbit is fertility, be fruitful and multiply. Represents softness, gentleness and vulnerability. LAMAT– Totem Rabbit. Energies of re-birth, regeneration, ripening, harvest and abundance. This person is overflowing with love energy in all areas of life. Spiritual growth is natural and with ease due to the unconditional love energy that flows.
