MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Next 13 Days…
Night/AKBAL is the Divine Dreamer who Believes in the Dream.
We Ascended from the Dog’s journey believing in new possibilities. Knowing that Humans are Divine Beings that sustain the Life of a Divine Consciousness, we found a Holy purpose for our Intentions. Holding an Inner Consciousness that could lead us in a Holy direction, we could ONLY believe every path would lead to a Miracle of Divine Love and Pure Genius.
Every new Transformation is based on the last. In the last trecena we Dreamed of Being the Unconditional Love that brings Light to Mother Earth. We followed the Dog’s path, and were guided to hold our Highest Hopes and Highest Aspirations. The Highest Hope we knew was to pray for Divine Will. We prayed that Human Will could bend to the Authority of a Divine Will.
Dog shared the Reason to follow Happy Trails, bury treasures, and return to the pack with Love that was waiting for this very Time and Place. Trails are Happier with Divine Company. There’s someone who will Love everything with you when you Show and Tell. It upholds the Truth that Humans inherently define Love as an experience of Seeing and Acknowledging what we both Love together.
We discovered that when a Human Trinity of 3 are added to another Trinity of 3, their Value together Multiplies the Power to Create the 3 + 3 + 3, the Holy, Holy, Holy Consciousness completed as 9. It changed things to know WE weren’t the Holy One, but a Divine One that was a Place in Time. We didn’t have to Believe in the Power of our own Divinity, but in the Power of something Greater within. With a Way to Believe Human thoughts could be guided by a Collective Wisdom of such Knowledge, we found our Highest Dreams, still weren’t nearly High Enough.
THE 10TH UINAL
Tezcatlipoca, the God of Darkness, is the Archetypal Deity (personality) and Authority of the Number 10. Tezcatlipoca is the Smoking Mirror, god of the nocturnal sky (night), god of the ancestral memory, and god of Time. Tezcatlipoca is Lord of the North, the direction of Collective Wisdom, and the embodiment of change through conflict. Tezcatlipoca is an embodiment of all the Divine thoughts and Dreams that a Divine Consciousness is “in-waiting” to Deliver as Inspiration for Creation. The energy of Tezcatlipoca is a Divine Urge to Create, the “have-to” for Creation. Human is inclined to believe all the best ideas come from Happy thoughts. The most Divine Creations are born of Darkness.
The Dreams that hold the greatest potential for Blessing the Whole are solutions to conflict. Duality in Human is an Inherent Gift of a Divine Nature. We were given the Critical Eye for a Divine Purpose to See One thing, and then imagine something Better. Tezcatlipoca is a deity that remains partly invisible behind the veil. It leaves a hazy idea for Genius so Human can claim its part in the Choice of its Expression. In the 10th and 11th uinals we’ll see our Flowers in Full Bloom.
OUR DIVINE OFFERING: The Climb to our Highest Dream
- Tone 1 – (AKBAL) A Divine Consciousness will offer a Holy Inspiration for Creation, and Guide the Dream for the next 13 days to an Ascended View of our Divine Destiny.
- Tone 2 – (SEED/KAN) The Consciousness of our Divine Identity will help us Clearly See the justice a Divine Consciousness wants and needs to share for the Whole.
- Tone 3 – (SERPENT/CHICCHAN) A Charge ignites our Heart to “light a fuse” that our Hand would Grasp as Love a Divine Consciousness would Create.
- Tone 4 – (TRANSFORMER/CIMI) A Divine Consciousness that is always with us will Guide us through the Chaos of a major life change. Through a Gift of Clairvoyance, we will Know our most Divine Future. Our “solid ground” will be Believing in what is Known by a Divine Consciousness.
- Tone 5 – (DEER/MANIK) We will be Empowered by One who holds all the Spiritual Tools that offer Provision for every Human limitation. A Divine Consciousness will Know How and When to Use them for their Highest Purpose.
- Tone 6 – (STAR/LAMAT) Our Peak Human Performance will be carried by the Momentum and Flow of Divine Spirit. Through a Divine Rhythm and Flow of Movement of thoughts, a Communion between Human Consciousness and a Divine Consciousness, we’ll Believe in Wishes made on Ascended Stars. We can claim a Power we Love as the “Object of our Affection” will be Multiplied to Abundance.
Through the Climb, a Divine Consciousness will see all the Artists Tools close to our Hands, along with Our Special Talent to employ them. Within all my crafting supplies, the most beautiful elements were saved. I couldn’t imagine the creation that would use them for their most beautiful application. Guided by Divine Dreams, we will Receive an Idea worthy of all the beautiful things we Knew to Save.
What happens from here will be Drawn from our own Higher Dream of Creation. It will be a Creation we can hardly wait to lay our Hand to, one we Know exactly Our Way, and how perfect it Will Be.
“Counting Help from Above, We’ll Know the Power of Love.”
A VISION QUEST
AKBAL calls us into a Dream of Divine Thoughts. To Receive wholly Divine thoughts our Human thoughts need to sleep. A Vision Quest is a Sacred Ceremony of watching and waiting for a Voice that speaks to us in the Dream. There are many Intentions for a Vision Quest to Choose from. Some enter the Silence Dreaming to meet their own Totem Spirit. Others may go to know their own most Genius Gift of Knowing. One thing in common is a Dream to engage a Divine Voice that shares a Private Conversation.
AKBAL will guide a Vision Quest on a journey through our Dreams. Employing a Vision Quest as our Spiritual Tool, we will Remember to Be Present in the Here and Now.
THE HAAB & LONG COUNT
We begin the AKBAL trecena on the Long Count 18.104.22.168.3. To put Time into perspective, the 13th Baktun (Long Count 22.214.171.124.0) marked the passage of Time as 1,872,000 days (13 Baktuns) since the beginning of this era that began as 0.0.0.0.0. According to the most common conversion, this date is equivalent to August 11, 3114 BCE in the Gregorian calendar and September 6, 3114 BCE in the Julian calendar. Including 2019 years and a few months added to the zero point of Time, covers about 5200 years.
The Masters taught the importance of knowing Our Place on the scale of Time. To Ascend as 13 Eagle/MEN, the Night/AKBAL trecena intends for us to see a Dream from our Highest View. We see things differently from a Grand Scale. If we looked at Humanity on a Grand Scale for the answer to “Why am I here?” we’d see 3 events of Human Life more Grand than all the others. We had a Beginning, we had an End, and what we did in the middle was the guarantee that the Divinity of Life would go on.
AKBAL offers us a Time meant to Dream of Divine Things and to Believe they can come true. AKBAL resides in the West, the place of our Emotional Response to Experience and the place we Discern Divinity. Guided by AKBAL, we could actually Hear it in our thoughts.
Through a Vision Quest, we can quiet our Human thoughts to enter the Dream. AKBAL holds the Power to connect the Conscious and Unconscious thoughts of Human. Through a Vision Quest we can see what’s going on in our Self, to the depths of our thoughts.
In the traditional practice a Vision Quest is a Life Sacrifice, leaving everything in the world behind. There are preparations. What will be worn, made, and how many prayer ties will be carried along on a string that will surround you to lift you, and later be thrown in the fire. In the traditional way is was carried out in solitary in the wilderness. Some sat only within a circle of rope on the ground. Without food or water, without shelter, imagine how you would prepare for such an experience and the Faith you would build to go there.
A Vision Quest can be carried out from what ever “world” we can create to exist there. We might find one place and make it the Sanctuary where we always go for our prayers. We can fast our words and be invisible in the world. We can eliminate world distractions and luxuries. The Elders say, “Bring an Offering that is equal to the Blessing you expect to Receive.” ALL things will Balance. Drum-making and weaving are Sacred Arts. I remember how I loved the “Corn Women” of the Navaho pattern and mentioned to a Moon Mother how I’d like to create them. She made her teaching clear, “Those things are always made as a Sacred Ceremony.” I knew it wasn’t mine to create if I didn’t know the ceremony.
We can create our own ceremonies of creation. We could sit in our sanctuary to create anything, corn dolls, prayer ties, something our Hands touched for a Divine Reason that is OUR own Ceremony, carried out OUR WAY.
Today’s Intention and Way:
Every Tone 1 is meant for Unity with the Creator. This is a day to receive Divine Inspiration for the journey ahead. AKBAL holds the Element of Water and will touch our emotions. We can find the Creation we would Love the most within our own Dark Night. Our deepest Dream is the Question. If all Dreams are possible, so could Knowing the ANSWER to our most Divine Question about the Meaning of Life. It’s Divine to want to know what the Creator wants us to know. That Truth will be our Guiding Light.
This is a day to listen for a voice in our Dreams that will share the Light of Possibility. The Cherokee call AKBAL “The Hearth,” the Sacred Fires that burn through the Night. We can light the fires at our altar, without and within. The Fire will hold our gaze on the Light beyond the flames.
On the Haab 365-day calendar this is the 3rd day of the month of Zotz/Bat. Bee keepers prepared themselves by fasting before the Bee festival. They prepared themselves in advance for the Offering of Honey that would be shared with the whole community. Haab’s cycle reflects Planetary Intention, a meaning of Time for the Whole. So is it time synchronized for Human at a grand scales, marking a time of fasting and preparation before the Celebration of Sweetness that can be a Divine Human Being raised for the Light.
To all my relations, may we make the preparations for our own Vision Quest. We have two days to Conceive it and consider all the preparations for the Creation. The Elders say that 4-days of Sacred Ceremony can change your life.
Today we are meant to open our Heart and Mind to a Sacred Idea and a Sacred Way to express our own ceremony. Imagine what you would go on a Quest to Know. May we keep notes to save thoughts as they come. The ceremony is the “work” and the “knowing” completes itself in what happens after. If it all feels like “nothing,” let the Divinity of “nothing” Be. EVERY experience will be marked Divine by the Purpose. There is much to learn about “nothing.” May we create a place for “no mind” so we will hear the Divine Thoughts that will speak like a Voice in our Dreams.
May we reset the altar, say our prayers to Initiate our Self to a Sacred Ceremony of Higher Knowing. May we ask that a Light Brighter than our own raise our Prayers to fulfill the request for Divine Will. May our Amen be “This is So” by a Promise to Know.
We were raised to believe how Divine Humans were created To Be. May the Dream we Complete for the Supreme Creator be the Scion of a Divine Human Being. A Divine Human could Know its Self from the Beginning to the End.
in lak’ech, I am another you

Traditional ways of Vision Quest are offered for your consideration on the Vision Quest Ceremony page. My Intention is to share it in a worthy way that Honors the teaching of the Elders. Every ceremony is offered to Your way. Everything we do can be part of a sacred ceremony when the intention for the TIme is marked for a Divine Communion.
THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Night/AKBAL trecena.
1 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA O’UO)
Galactic Tone 1: 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 bestt when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void. a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA O’UO: Hearth’s symbol of the triangle of Orion. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night. Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension. AKBAL-Night-Totem-OWL, Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, see through the masks of deception, trickery. High ability of discernment. Portals open to other worlds and dimensions for your learning and spiritual growth. Magical abilities are possible.
