MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. Tone 12 draws disassociated parts into a new whole. On Tone 12 we have a new accumulation of experience.
We can look at our Past, Present, and Future from a different point of view. With the Gift of Retrospection, we can go back to any experience to discover Our Truth looks different from a Higher Perspective.
The Earth/CABAN trecena inspires us to fulfill Human’s Divine Purpose to bring our Light to the World.
Star/LAMAT offers a reflection of our Divine Identity as the Scion, the first descendant of a Divine Consciousness. Like children of the Sun, we are made of Stars that emanate their own Light.
Lamat is symbolized by Venus that shines as both the Morning and Evening Star. The Venus cycle of 260-days was compared to Human’s gestation cycle. Venus’s light is bright enough to be seen when it shines close to the Sun. We were created from a Spark to be the Personification of Light that can shine for Human in the dark.
Star/LAMAT is a Sign of “Pure Luck.” LAMAT’s totem is the Rabbit, a living cauldron of reproduction from its Love that Overflows. LAMAT is known for its gift of Multiplying to Abundance the “object of our affection.”
The Rabbit is known for the speed with which it can multiply. LAMAT is a symbol of “instant manifestation.”
12 Star/LAMAT can accelerate Human understanding. Drawing new pieces and parts of new thoughts into the Whole, our Wisdom and Consciousness – our Power of Thought can be Multiplied to Abundance.
The Human mind is a very divine calculator. Our Power of Thought is exponentially multiplied with each variable of new Truth that we can add to our equations of Discernment. Multiplying our Truths of Love, our brain will automatically be trained to multiply the variables it adds to ALL our thoughts. We are able to make a discernment of any Truth more quickly the more variables we add from things we already Know and Believe.
Our brains and our heart working together are capable of all kinds of Divine Creations in the world. We were meant to bring our Genius to the world, as well as our Love. As we generate the Light of our Love, we will discover we’re shining in many ways through many new ideas. Stuff we do for fun can start to become an area of Expert Knowledge.
I learned it from the birds on my balcony. I loved watching them. As I focused my attention on them I would notice their ways of doing things. I was curious enough out of Love to start looking up information on the House Finch. As they built a nest in the rafters of my balcony, I found out a lot of things – how they build the nest, how many eggs they usually lay, how long they take to hatch, and how the entire flock engages with the new members of their community. I learned that female eggs hatch first because the males are more susceptible to mites in the nest. They all fledge together. From one bird, I learned a lot about other birds.
From the finch, I also learned a Divine Provision created by Design. From that one thing, I could believe in a Divine Provision for all things. There is SO MUCH to learn from Mother Earth, Miracles for Divine Understanding always right in front of us. Imagine how genius we could be when Life on Mother Earth becomes the “object of our affection.”
Consciousness is like learning Algebra. The process starts with a calculation that’s not too hard, if you can add or subtract (ie. X + 1 = 2). You learn a bunch of little things. It’s a growing Consciousness. Finally, it leads to seeing whole equations like additions, subtractions of sets of equations. What seems impossible to understand is possible when you take one piece of information at a time. Human acquires wisdom best breaking it down to one thing at a time. Our Divine Mind will accumulate all the experience for a Higher Application of Wisdom. I’ve forgotten my Algebra from 38 years ago, but I remember how I could know it again.
The Whole of our Wisdom is exponentially greater than the sum of all the pieces and parts of our Knowledge of Truth.
The Earth/CABAN trecena reminds us that everything Human knows we learned from Mother Earth. What is True about the smallest parts of her are True about the Whole. The Creator’s Light is Eternal… it adds up.
Human takes for granted the Spiritual Gift to travel back in time through our thoughts. Retrospection is an exponential Gift of Intelligence. The Human mind was designed as vast store of data. We are told we only use 10% of our brains capacity. We have an exponential store of processing capabilities – enough to add unlimited variables to our Process of Discernment… more things to compare to know the Truth.
The glyph that “looks” like a Star is actually a symbol of the opening where the Seed is planted in the Earth… the shape made by the farming implement that opens earth. The 4 directions are marked on the glyph. The symbol illustrates that where a Seed is planted will be the center from which its meant to send its Light in all directions. From a Center of Consciousness, Light is sent equally to all the functioning roots Below.
The K’iche tradition recognizes CABAN by the name N’oj (N-oh). It sounds very much like “know.” “Knowing” is the meaning of the K’iche Day Sign. The glyph for N’oj defines three different faculties of comprehension as a source of Consciousness. The first two are the Human mind and the Mind of Spirit. The third is the resource of the Divine, functioning on the Whole of Human and Spirit Consciousness together. The two minds working together as One create the Genius of a Divine Trinity… the 2 as 1 equal the Divine Power of 3.
Just think what happens whenever you add another variable to your own equations of Discernment. “Mary wasn’t friendly this morning. She didn’t say hello.” Then we find out Mary has a splitting headache. One single piece of new information can change the entire result of our discernment about Mary. Humans who were Created for Love will Grow their Love with each new variable they are able to add to the whole picture.
Star/LAMAT reminds us of the Cauldron of Love that We Are. There are many variables we could have applied WITHOUT ever knowing that Mary had a headache. We could assume we ALL are suffering from headaches right now. 🙂
When we know there’s always another variable, we can make a Choice to cover all the differences between us. When Human is not Present to Love, more likely than not, their thoughts are somewhere else.
Today, Star/LAMAT offers the Guiding Light to focus on the object of our affection. In other words, focus on what you want – and not on what you don’t want. See what you want to see as your own first impression in another. Use your own variables so their Light can always be Seen and Acknowledged. There is always Light shining from the Spark of another Human. Light will appear again in another Time and Place.
This is a day to shine our Light in the Dark, to Believe in Love on behalf of the Whole. Today the Light can be multiplied to abundance when we apply the Truth that we all want to shine. We can all shine better together when we See and Acknowledge our Equal Light.
Humans make wishes on Stars. Legend has it that the origin was a belief that wishing on a shooting star makes the wish come true. The belief was recorded as far back as AD127-151 when a Greek astronomer Ptolemy wrote that shooting stars where the occasion, out of curiosity or even boredom, when the Gods peer down at the earth from between the spheres. Today, a wish for the Whole can come true.
To all my relations, may we put the pieces together. May we see the Truth that we aren’t the only one trying to shine. May we focus on the Whole as our “object of affection.” May we imagine how beautiful Human love would be all shining Together. When we remember we’re seen as an Only Child, we don’t have to shine brighter to be Loved.
May we focus on our dreams and make a wish. May we believe that an Overflow of Love will manifest a Creation of Abundance. May we be grateful there is a star that shines for every Human who ever was and that will ever be.
in lak’ech, I am another you

12 Star/LAMAT (Cherokee, Rabbit/TAKATO’KA), Kin 168
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.
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.
