4 Earth / CABAN – Journey of Spirit: Day 4 of 13


4 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. The Truth we can stand on lies in the 4 directions of Mother Earth. Tone 4 is compared to the cube that establishes dimension by its parameters and boundaries. The Intention of 4 is to establish the “rules of the game.”

In the 4th Hour of Light, we prepare for Creation. Thoughts are turned to the task at hand to conceive a strategy. By the 4th Hour of Light, the Maya completed their journey to their fields of Corn. They discovered the calendar in Human by the Intentions they shared in common in the same Hour each day. In the same Hour of the day they surveyed the Garden to discern the job at hand.

Our Garden is our Body of Human Consciousness that will Grow the Higher Consciousness of a New Seed of Being. Tone 4 establishes a foundation of thought that will guide us to Remember to Discern the Wisdom of Truth.

Earth/CABAN is the Essence of Mother Earth as the Source of all Human Wisdom. EVERYTHING Human knows we learned from the Mother. She holds the Truth of a Divine Design from the micro to the macro. From the Truth of One thing, we can discern the Truth of many other things.

The K’iche Maya essence of CABAN is called N’oj (n oh). The 3 symbols on the glyph are a straight line, a wavy line and ascending circles of Divine Thoughts. Together they reflect a Divine Trinity of Consciousness that consolidates Human’s linear intelligence, our unbridled Imagination, and the Divine Thoughts that lead us to the Gift of Comprehension. N’oj is the Sense of Knowing our Self and who we are by Divine Design. The task at hand is to be Moved by the Truth of our Divine Identity.

The Aztec Ollin (all in) simply means movement. The symbol lies in the center of the Mayan calendar marking 20 Divine Movements of Time. Like the 20 archetypes that are the all-in-one Consciousness of a Divine Creator, our Consciousness is moved to a Higher Plane as we move through the 20 perspectives of Divinity. Days led by Ollin offer the Gift of Identity Consciousness – days said to offer the Truth of what we are becoming. Ollin encourages us to keep moving, like Earth’s perpetual movement. They call Ollin a lucky day for the “active principle” and an unlucky day for the “passive principle.”

Mother Earth maintains her Balance and Creates Time through her Movement. The ways she moves is guided by the Element of Fire in her Heart. CABAN guides us to Move Now and Always with All our Heart and Mind.

Tonight I am blessed with the sound of thunder and the Blessing of Rain. Lightning and thunder are not common in the Pacific Northwest. Growing up in the Midwest we expected thunder and lightning with every rain. Yet here in a rainy place, after 10 years, I could count the occasions of thunder or lightning without using my toes. Some fear it, but I always Loved it. The Elders say the Spirit of the Grandfathers and Grandmothers are present in the clouds. Lightning transform the clouds as the Rain that falls as a Blessing of Love. The Water that holds the Ether of Spirit is the Blessing of Life to the Seed.

The Aztec associate the essence of CABAN with an Earthquake. “4 Ollin is the 5th and present era. Ollin is a day of the purified heart, signifying those moments where human beings may perceive what they are becoming. A good day for transmutation, which arrives like an earthquake that leaves in its wake the ruins of rationality, order and the preconceived.” Aztec Calendar

We are the Seed planted by the Creator on Mother Earth. Today a New Seed is known to the Heart of Mother Earth and a New Relationship of Love begins on Earth. Our most tender roots feel the gravity of her Love and reach for it. Through her Divine Discernment of our Divinity and Her Compassionate Love, we Know we are Seen and Acknowledged. The first Love given for us to discern is a Divine Mother who could never forget the Life born in her womb. We are drawn into the Circle of Life as we are Born to Mother Earth.

All things on Mother Earth are always Moving. Moving is what Life is about. On Earth life moves us from one experience to the next. Movement creates Time that Creates the Experiences of Life. We learned from CIB that every experience holds the Wisdom for a Discernment of Love when we hold the Key of Forgiveness. We weren’t meant to get stuck, but to learn and keep moving on. We are ONE in a Divine Experience of a Breath of Life, that Breathed us by the Essence of the Intention of Beauty and Love.

The  Cherokee Heron is a nahual of perpetual migration. They move on because every destination is a field of greater Abundance. The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix, a New Life that rises from the ashes of its past. Life is Beautiful from the Very Beginning.

Taken in 2018, the Quasar is our closest picture yet of the beginning of our Universe. The Light of this celestial event happened 13 Billion Years ago. The breath of creation has carried us as far as light can travel in 13 Billion Earth years. The Moon is 1.2 light seconds away from Earth. The 2nd Light that reflects the 1 Light takes 1.2 seconds to reach Mother Earth. It takes the Sun’s Light about 8 minutes to reach the Moon. (Google) 8 is the Number of Pure Spirit, infinity and Abundance.

Human saw and acknowledged the Eagle’s vision of Distance and the Owl’s vision to see through the darkness. From what we saw on Mother Earth we manifested a Human Way. N’oj is Believing in what the Creator gave Human to See in Darkness and in Light. This is a day to recognize our Time and Place in the Universe. All Earthly things were born of the first Breath, and Formed by the Essence of the Creator’s Intention of Love, Harmony and Beauty.

The Elders say that the Green Beings are the most conscious of all living things on Earth. They hold the Power to Move and Grow to the Light. Through a network of thoughts and discernment of fertile directions, the Seed is Grounded by Mother Earth. To balance the Truth Above and Below, Divine Miracles will abide by the Laws of Nature. If there has been a Miracle you remember in your life, look again. A Miracle was ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.  The Vision to see further than the Eagle and the Owl was a Human possibility.

CABAN holds the Element of Fire in the Heart. Our dreams are the Sacred Times of our Life, shared through our Joy and the Passion of our Tears born through a Blessing of Light. Following the shape-shifting Jaguar, we walk the Sacred White Way of Thought that manifests its own Never-Ending. Giving Life to our Dreams  we will always hold faith in another tomorrow. We can disappear into the Dimensions of Time and Space. We will Know the Realm of Spirit as the world that is REAL.

We are born Light, Only Light, and Eternal Light that has been perpetually moving at 13 billion years, expanding and living to Create Time from a Beginning to some Divine Ending, planned from Above. The Direction is guided by the Breath. The Beauty was manifested by an Intention for Love to be an experience we could never forget.

Knowledge and Wisdom is the Light to our Spirit. We will manifest our Knowledge of Creation and Divine Wisdom through the strategy of perpetual Movement. Moving on the Intention to discern the Truth of every experience, we will perpetually grow to Higher Consciousness every day. Like the Green Beings, some days the change may be too small to see. Movement creates Time. In Time we will see the Truth that every small change was a major accomplishment.

Today we are guided be grounded by Earth to a Dream that will create the Time of our Life and lead us across the threshold to the Real Dimension of Love.

Today is my natal birthday of 69 years. It feels like my roots have reached out to find others all coming to life again at the same time. I’m proof to myself that life can start over ANY TIME. The Time of My Life began with this journal at 65. You are the Gift of the Journey. The Light of your presence is proof to my heart that there are millions of lights around us, invisible to Human eyes, yet sharing a Common Dream of Love that connects thoughts beyond the boundaries of Time and Space.

To all my relations, may we Remember Mother Earth and Give thanks for Knowing a Divine Mother will always remember us. Neither will a Divine Father. Even broken human mothers and fathers never forget a child. May we always Remember how we started and the very Essence of our Being. From this day on, we will always be Remembered. May we Claim a New Life that we will never forget and dream of the Destiny created from such a Divine Beginning.

May we Remember Mother Earth and go to her with a Blessing. May we See and Acknowledge and FEEL the Holy Ground that was placed beneath our Feet to Awaken us with a Truth that we were Seen and Created to always be Remembered by the Father and Mother of Creation. May we Create the Divine Time of our Life, Living for the Dream in our Heart.

in lak’ech, i am another you
I will always remember Your Light for bringing me back to life.

4 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

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.

Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way.

    I in response to your request I offer a special Virgo verse of GRATITUDE For the Dark and Mysterious “RECEIVING FORCE,” MOTHER EARTH.

    In union the Ancient Ones, Our Ancestors, Shamans and DayKeepers I/WE recognize and express my/Our gratitude to the Dark and Mysterious “RECEIVING FORCE,” MOTHER EARTH who takes our eternal light from the “INITIATING CREATOR FORCE,” into her Bosom; Nurtures, Supports and Sustains US with her Beauty and her Bounty.

    May We Master Vigilant Consciousness, Patience, and Gratitude to manifest Unconditional Love for Humanity, seeking Divine Inspiration and Ancestral Knowledge to keep Us on the path to fulfill Humanity’s meaning and purpose of mutual reciprocity and interdependence, action and influence in the continuance of Life; and returning the People to the Land, Mother Earth.

  3. I missed a couple days and I went back to review. Happy belated natal 69th Full Moon Friday the 13th on 4 Caban. I feel that as well as the mutuality of being in both my Caban and Virgo signs. It was a beautiful full moon here where I got to be in a drum circle watching the moon come up with friends. I hadn’t drummed in a long time. Hope you are still experiencing the reverberations of that moment as I read this on this “equally” auspicious equinox day of beginning of the Manik trecena. Thank you so much for the inspiration for all of us in initiating our dreams, dear Debra, Jaguar Eagle Woman!
