MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 8 begins the Transformation Phase of the trecena. Number 8 (WAXAJQIB) is the Solar Number of “Pure Spirit.”
The 13 Tones represent the 12 Hours of Light in the Maya lands from 5AM to 5PM, and the 13 Hour of Ascension. The Day is Sacred as the legend of the ascending thoughts of Creation at every scale. The 13 day trecena, 13 uinals, 13 Tzolk’in rounds, to 13 Baktuns all complete major cycles of Creation. In the time of the 13 Baktun, we are transformed under the symbol of Answered Prayer and a Divine Reunion with the Creator.
The 8th Hour is the Zenith of the Sun’s Light. It is a Holy Day marked for an Illumination. Tone 8 is the day when many of the Sacred Ceremonies and Rituals are carried out.
Every new Transformation begins from the Higher Ground of the last cycle. We are changed by Truth through every climb of Divine Intention. Wisdom/CIB was the Day Sign that led the last trecena.
8 Wisdom/CIB represents Wisdom/CIB in its Highest Illumination. The MULUC trecena is the Light of a New Inspiration, a new Dream of Consciousness, Atoned with the thoughts of the Creator. Today marks the direct transmission of Wisdom from Above.
Wisdom/CIB is the symbol of the Old Ones and connects us to their Wisdom from Above. Today we will know their presence as a Divine Provision watching over us. They are always waiting for us to call – always waiting to be brought back to Life in the Minds of our Consciousness. The Popol Vuh’s accounting of Creation, Human is the Living Sacrifice for all Divine Consciousness and the Wisdom of ALL Time.
The Offering/MULUC trecena is our Inspiration to make the sacrifice of our own Free Will. MULUC is inspiring us through Gratitude and the Truth of ALL the Divine things about being Human, before we’ve ever made a choice. We are Divine by Design. Our Hearts are being convicted to Pay Back and Pay Forward to be One with the Circle of Life.
Wisdom/CIB resides in the South, the direction of our Relationship with one another and with the Natural World. We will be Transformed through the Light of Right Relationship. The glyph illustrates a Human mind in its Highest State of Consciousness, emanating the rays of Light, Illumination, and Forgiveness. CIB offers Forgiveness as the Key to the Kingdom of Spirit.
We are guided to a Sacred Ceremony, a Celebration of Pure Spirit. We take our place around a Circle of Light in the realm of Spirit – the Whole Dream of the Creator for everything that was and could ever be. We are building fires and collecting Light for a New Creation, made possible by all the Dreams that came before.
The Elders taught us to look across the Medicine Wheel to know our Place in Time. Our Place in this Tzolk’in round is the Reproduction Cycle. In the 11th uinal our Resolution for a new way forward is the Fruit of our Spirit that is setting on the vine. They will ripen to bear the Seed in the 13 uinal of Ascension, and born on 13 Sun/AHAU. What is happening now is the result of the Seed that was created from the last harvest. EVERY Ascension raises us by scale to Higher Ground.
Last year in the Yucatan, we called on the Creator and all the legions of Light for a Blessing of Forgiveness. We made an Offering to accept the blame for the Whole. By Divine Timing, we were drawn to the Zenith Light that falls on July 16. Miguel Angel said there is significance in the 5 days of the Wayeb before, and the 5 days of the first Haab month, POP, immediately after. The dates fall in exact alightment, exactly across the Medicine Wheel from the prayers of Concession and Sacrifice made last fall, and on the exact same dates of the Tzolk’in.
This is also a Total Lunar Eclipse, engaging the North/South and polarity. In the Wayeb we are called to Choose Wisely to keep following our Dream of Light. The Astrology Page is updated with forecasts by several astrologers who explain this as a very significant TIME.
The Maya were Masters of Time. We become Masters of all time, when we make a Sacrifice for ALL Time. Maybe the Truth I am learning about so many version of the Haab is that any journey we take for the Creator will Create the Time of our Life. We create the Wisdom of our Time through Consciousness of the Beauty and Love all around, Inherent in each other, and Inherently Connected for All Time.
To all my relations, may we Give Thanks for the Grandfathers and Grandmothers that shared the gift of Life. May we Honor them for the “hard road” they traveled before. May we remember the stories and the wisdom passed down to us. May we see the Truth of this Divine Way in Human to look forward, remembering to Look Back at those who looked forward for us.
May we Know the Truth of who we are as “pure spirit.” Tone 8 holds the Intention of Justice, carried out by a Divine Agency Above. It holds no “Human effort” accept to Receive the Light. May we see our Self apart from all our Dreams and Intentions, the pure spirit of our “I Am.”
May we continue to speak the words of Love out loud to Mother Earth and Father Sky for everything that exists Above and Below. As we tell our Self, may we tell the Ancestors, “We are Light, Only Light, Eternal Light.”
in lak’ech, i am another you

8 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign, enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valieant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. (A good day to sit on a rock.)
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ : Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritive. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.

Bix a beel?
I will look forward to seeing your comments when I return. My thoughts are with you in Spirit.
The miracles of the Tzolk’in are easy to see when you keep a daily journal. On this same Kin, last round, I was about to take off for Ek’ Balam. It was a Dream that came true by an effort of Divine Intention – my “first proof” that I could create miracles in my life. With each post I look back to see what was happening before. The round before this, was also a miracle of Movement in the world. It marked the miracle of driving 50 miles across town through Seattle traffic without being afraid. I never dreamed that 260 days later I would head out alone on a Divine Pilgrimage of 4,000 miles. My greatest fear to overcome became international borders where I barely spoke the language. A journal records the synchronicity of the same day every round. One step at a time, employing our Divine Consciousness, our progress is Multiplied to Abundance.
OCTOBER 27, 2018: Thank you for the Love that made my dream come true.
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 CALL TO ALL DREAMERS TO SACRED CEREMONY AT EK’ BALAM…
This is the Time and Place of a Miracle. It’s been my Dream to experience and see the place where the sacred traditions of the Maya are carried out, and where Ian Lungold was inspired to share the blessing of the Tzolk’in calendar. I’ve imagined this experience as a Divine Illumination that can open our eyes to the Truth of our Self, holding the Power of Co-Creation with the Creator.
I extend my deepest Appreciation to all of you. Those whose donations made a way, and those whose presence with me here are One in the Miracle of Believing it was possible. “Thank you” can’t express what I feel in my heart. all my love, Debra
