MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 offers the gift of Retrospection to complete an Intention of Understanding. 12 is a symbol of Humanity as the 12 Constellations, the 12 tribes, the 12 disciples who are led the by the 13, the Ascended One. All of Humanity dances in a circle around a Central Light of Divine Love.
There’s no journey we could take through the darkness that we couldn’t turn around an see the Presence of the Light that always Shines for the 12 Below.
Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. The Wind of the Creator’s spoken words of Creation set the Earth in motion, orbiting the Center of Life, Light, and Happiness.
Mother Earth was the place we were given to Know Love. Her Beauty was the first Inspiration of a Living Love. Her Beauty was given to inspire the Beginning of Every Journey of Creation.
Wind/IK resides in the North, the direction of Divine Wisdom. The Element of Air relates to all our faculties of Conscious Thought. As the Voice of a Divine Creator, Wind holds the power to propel a direction of thought. The glyph illustrates the Portals that were carved in stone that magnify the sound of the Wind, and direct our eyes toward the stars.
The Elders always told us to Listen for the Wind. We were told that when we heard or felt the Wind, we should make note of our own thoughts. We will discern something different from a Gust of Wind and a Cool Breeze. Wind will send us in a direction or confirm the direction of thoughts we’ve chosen. Wind can also change the entire landscape of our Life. Wind’s purpose is the elevate our thoughts and change our Mind.
12 Wind/IK offers the Understanding of the thoughts we pull from thin air. We were created to be drawn by our Primal Instinct of Love. Whenever we set off in a direction that opposes our own Divine Instinct, we will meet the Resistance of the Wind that blows us in a Divine Direction. Wind/IK can offer us the Understanding that for all the effort we apply in opposition to the direction of Love, we’ll find the experience that we’re not getting anywhere. We are given the Wisdom to see the fruitlessness of going against what we are Divinely Intended to Be and Do. At the same time, we’ll know that when we follow our Journey’s of Love for an Intention of the Whole, there will always be the Wind at our Back.
The Cherokee Day Sign, the Whirlwind, is the 13th Dancer, the Ascended One that leads the 12 Below. Today we can feel the Truth of being led in a Divine Direction. We’ll know before we take another step of our Journey, the propulsion that was the Primal Force of our Design. The Creator’s Breath is the current of Love that flows through the Creation. Today, when we feel it, we’ll know the direction of a Journey that begins from Love.
Breath is always the first sign of Life. We are breathed by the Creator, and in every Breath the Whole of Humanity draws together from the One Source of Life, Light, and Happiness. The Oxygen in the air is our Vital Resource, like Love. Like Love, Human’s place in all of The Creation is the breath we share in the Balance with all living things. The Breath of Love is our Sacred Exchange, our own Contribution to Life on Mother Earth. That’s a Miracle, that Human was made an Integral part of Life on Earth. We will know Abundant Life when we Breathe our Love into every Dream of Creation.
The Creator’s Love is such a Divine thing we can’t forget what we once knew in the womb. We had everything we ever needed without thinking at all. The first experience known was Love, Peace, and the Happiness of an Eternal Life. We didn’t worry about survival. We knew no beginning or end. We existed in the womb of all possibilities.
Through the Breath of God’s Love, we held a Divine Advantage before we were ever born. A journey was being prepared for us to Begin from the First Truth we knew. The first Truth that we were a Life and Consciousness unto our Self, set us on a journey of discovery. Our first journey was the Discovery of Who We Are. The path of the Journey began from thoughts of Love.
The Monkey/CHUEN trecena is offering us the Divine Muse for Creation. On 12 Wind/IK our thoughts can be elevated to a Higher Understanding of the Muse, and the Inspiration a Divine Muse shares with every Human Being.
Crocodile/IMIX was the Mother who was a Muse, sharing Love and stories of Creation as the ingredients to inspire Creation. So is Wind/IK a Muse, the Muse that inspired the Whole Creation. The Whole of The Creation was manifested from the Thought of Identity, the “I Am.” The Creator Created knowing it held the Power to Create Anything. Conscious of its own Identity of Divinity and the Power of Love were a Supreme Creator’s first thoughts that began a Journey to The Creation.
Sun/AHAU completed the Transformation for a Higher Consciousness of our own Identity. A Divine Creation can now be inspired by Who We Are. We Become the Monkey. We’ll be less tied to the outcomes. Like the Monkey, creation will be a game of curiosity. Like the Monkey, we’re being Inspired to Create for the simple Intention that we Know We Can. The Wind can draw together all our Creative thoughts for a Mind that will seek an Intention of Seeing itself Create. Sun/AHAU gave us a Name. The Universe would behold Human Being as the Creator’s Expression of Unconditional Love.
When the Creator looks at its own Creation, it sees the Symbols of Divine Love Everywhere. The Signs were place everywhere so Human would be sure to find them. When we saw the beauty of the mountains, we’d stand in awe of them. They would be more than mountains to our Spirit. Beauty at such a Grand Scale would always turn our thoughts to the Creator, Knowing in our Heart that such a scale of Beauty could never be replicated by a Human hand.
We were given Divine Hands for Creation from our Spirit. The Monumental Creation left for Human to Create would be the Balance of Harmony and Equity on Earth. Knowing the Balance between the Above and the Below, we could know that the Creator’s Love would only reflected in its Brightest Light when every Human Being was onboard with the same Creation of Love. Our Hearts were all connected to sing the One Song of Love together. The Light from one thread can inspire the Hearts that are connected to follow a Journey of Love together.
The Whole is our Muse in this round of the Tzolk’in. We are following the thoughts of Human’s Road of Destiny. Our Destiny wasn’t a solo journey. A Spiritual Breakthrough will be the Sacred Exchange when we are Conscious of the Creator’s Light that shines through the Whole. Our next journey of Creation will be inspired by something we See in the Whole. We’ll be inspired when we See and Acknowledge others following the same path of Love.
We’ll arrive at a Destination of Abundance and Happiness together. Like the Heron around the world who all arrive at the same time for the annual “Sandhill Crane Migration,” they started a journey alone. The nearer they got to the destination, they began to see others flying in the same direction. Only when they were close enough to behold the destination did they see that 500,000 other cranes were making the same Journey.
We hold a sense of Divine Synchronicity with one another when we experience the same things at the same time. Imagine if you started your own crusade… a mission you were impassioned to take on. It was a long time in the works. Small experiences of empathy began a journey. Through the Primal Instinct of Unconditional Love, you began to see how much everyone in the world needs the Provision of Love that was learned by you. You knew it personally as your own sorrow. By your own experience you knew the Love that was needed for the experience of Divine Justice. You knew it best, because you lived through it. At some Divine Time and Place, there were enough pieces and parts of needed Love to define your own journey to Abundance… something finally moved you to take action. You thought you were the only one who was finally ready to take a stand on Love. You took off on the journey alone. You created a Time and Place for the big event would you would Proclaim the Abundance of Love. You wonder if there’s anyone who will even listen to your message. Then you arrive and KNOW that ALL the Hearts were tied to yours, and all led to this Time and Place where Love would be multiplied to Abundance. You find you don’t have to get on a soapbox to declare your message. Everyone already received the Divine Invitation. Everyone there was set on the same Journey to multiply the Love of Divinity.
To all my relations, may our Divine Thoughts be rounded up in the Ether of Spirit. May we Feel the Whirling of a Divine Life within, one where we don’t have to push or lead anyone else to Love. May we stand in the Consciousness of an Abundant Life where Wind will always carry us in the direction of the First Breath. May we clearly see the Divinity of our own Breath, a substance so necessary we can’t maintain any Consciousness or Life when we’re without it. The very thing we depend on most for Life is something we can’t control, a Divine Force that can’t be directed by a Human hand. May we know that we can’t force the way of the Wind, but we can Harness the Power when we know its direction.
At the Dawn of our New Awakening may we hold thoughts about all the Forces of Nature and their Authority on Earth. If we knew how to turn a Hurricane around, we surely would. The Wind is what it is. We will know our Place in the Whirling of Life at the Heart of Wind’s direction. In the eye of the Storm, we’ll ride the wind and watch the rest of the world go by.
Wind/IK reminds us of the Sacred Power shared through Breath. We can draw the Sacred Breath to heal all the pain of suffering and doubt. Through Sacred Breath we elevate our Frequency of Consciousness. Our Songs of Worship are a Divine Power of Breath that begins a Service of Communion with the Creator. We can open our minds by Consciously drawing the Breath of Air that still swirls from the first Breath of Creation.
May Wind/IK offer an Inspiration of our own Divine Identity. May we be inspired as the Creator was inspired to manifest The Creation. The Creator Created because it Knew it’s own Divinity and Power to Create. Knowing its own Possibilities the Creator Intended a Divine Masterpiece would orbit the thoughts of a Divine Creator. May we Receive the Understanding of our own Divinity. May the Divinity we discover through the process of Creation, become an Intention of Creation. May we share the Consciousness of the Monkey, a curious Master of Art, who creates Beauty because it knows it can. The Beauty the Monkey Beholds is its own Power of Creation… the symbol it sees in every Masterpiece that reflects the Beauty of its Love.

THE MAYAN NEW YEAR
In the Maya lands it’s tradition to carry out the 21 Days of Gratitude ceremony leading to the New Year on 8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’atz). This is the day for the dedication of the Daykeepers. I always make a mistake on this count. So, there won’t be a countdown, though I’m reminding myself about Gratitude for the rest of the way to the New Year.
GRATITUDE FOR THE DAY:
I’m grateful that the Creator of our Universe is the Master Artist of Love. I’m grateful for the symbols of Divine Love in the Beauty all around.
TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN

12 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)
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.
Wind/IK: Breath of Spirit, breath of life. Winds embody the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. Dreamers and planners with powerful imaginations, Wind persons make great orators and they spread the word of spiritual inspiration as it is carried by the wind. Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change. As the wind, these persons are extremely changeable and adaptable. They may appear inconsistent or fickle to others. Wind can be destructive to self and others by putting on airs. When Winds strut and boast, expanding on facts and accomplishments, they are building the dark clouds of trouble that may become hurricanes.
Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA: Whirlwind’s symbol is a double spiral helix in rising smoke. Wind brings energy for an Inquiring mind, learning and wisdom. In Cherokee, the constellations are represented by 12 birds (dancers), the 13th bird is the Whirlwind, the lead dancer. This reflects the whirling of life. Wind is the breath of the Universe (matching the Mayan symbol) channel of communication and carries the Sacred Smoke to the Great Spirit (Source- Hunab Ku in Mayan); matches the pulse of the breath of the Cosmos.

How is your Spiritual path today?
I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!
A SHARED BREATH OF LOVE
May we Honor the “13 Generations” of Wisdom shared by Don Alejandro. May we send a Breath of Divine Love back to the Spiritual Leader of the Maya, our Tata, Don Alejandro. Tata is bedridden and at 92 conscious of the last Breath. May we remember the Thoughts and Wisdom he spoke to us about The Creation, and return a Breath that holds the Consciousness to say, “Thank you. We listened. Through your breath, we Understand what we must do to carry on.” May we draw the Breath to our Heart and hold it there as we imagine the Gifts that Tata shared. When we exhale may we send our breath in the direction of Guatemala where Tata waits and watches for a Divine Intervention. May we See and Acknowledge Tata’s Creation of Love and return the Truth that we saw the Signs and Symbols. May we claim that we Know we are the “Fingers on the same Hand,” like Tata told us, and we know just want it means. Visit the Latest Update from Tata, and see a way that you can share the resources needed to support his medical care. May we know our Love will be symbolized through a Sacred Exchange that honors the Beauty of the Wisdom that Tata has shared with the Whole. May we Light the Sacred Fires for Don Alejandro, as he has done for us so many times before.
AS WE OFFER OUR PRAYERS TO TATA, MAY WE ALSO REMEMBER HIS FAMILY. May we also See and Acknowledge the Love that is needed to Comfort the Family and Community that is close to Tata. May we remember them as we crystallize the Intention of our own Breath of Love. May we hold within the Sacred Breath our Truth of a Divine Provision for everything that Human needs to know Love, Happiness, and the Divine Destination that waits in Full Consciousness of the Creator’s Love.
