12 Earth / CABAN – Birth of New Light: Day 12 of 13



12 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. In Human’s Divine discernment of Truth, we’re given the inherent thoughts that lead the process of comprehension.

With Tone 12 comes a Gift of Retrospection, the ability to connect disassociated parts into a new functioning Whole. New information is accumulated for the application of experience.

The Transformer/CIMI offered the Sign of a Major Life Change. We were guided to a Higher Understanding of the transitions of Life and Death. Through Death of an old life, a new life WILL be born.

12 Earth/CABAN holds the Truth that CIMI intends for us to take to heart. Through a process of comprehension, an old Truth will die and a Higher Truth will be born.

Earth is the source of all Human knowledge. The glyph illustrates 3 divine resources of thought that are given to Human to discern the Truth of experience. The straight line is our linear mind of reason. The wavy line is the unbridled thought of our imagination. The circles that rise represent Divine thoughts that are the Ether of our Collective Wisdom and the Creator’s thoughts from Above. Using the 3 together, holds the Power of Genius.

Wisdom/CIB guided us to see the Wisdom of ALL Humanity is a Living Truth. From one generation to the next, from one phase of life to the next, we carry on to Higher Ground with the guidance of the Truths that were known before. Humans hold the power to access the Collective Wisdom of Humanity, when we grasp the Thread of Truth that the Truth has a Life in our Consciousness. Forgiveness holds the Key to Open the Door to the Divine Truth and Wisdom of ALL Time.

When we have forgiven, our eyes are open again to the Truth that is shared through every experience and through every relationship. When we are withholding our own Love from the experiences in our past, we are unable to see any treasures.

Earth/CABAN is a symbol of Mother Earth. CABAN defines Earth as a Living thing. Earth’s Movement Creates Time and all the experiences of our life. Mother Earth is the source of all Knowledge. When we apply our gift of Retrospection we can be Conscious of a Truth that to Live and Grow to Maturity, we have to keep moving. Earth offers us a dynamic illustration that if we keep moving, the darkness and light will be held in the Balance of a Divine Design for Time.

Humans are made of Earth. The same Forces of Earth lie in the Earth of Human Beings. A prevailing Truth that Human understands early in life is the Truth of Life and Death. We know our Time has a beginning and an end. To know the Truth of the Whole experience, we have to keep moving on.

The expressions of Love are different for every lifetime. The Truth of what Loving is changes. Loving was once an expression of tending to every skinned knee. Love was an enforcement of our Way for the safety and survival of one who is yet to find their own way. I always thought my care-taking ways were an expression of Love. It ceases to be Love when one has the Wisdom to make their own choices. I learned it from a counselor who clarified the Truth. There is a Time when care-taking turns into “doing for you, because you can’t do it for yourself.” Most humans wouldn’t intentionally share the idea of powerlessness with our children. We’re only holding on to Love that was perfect for another place and time.

The Ollin is the Aztec Day Sign that simply means Movement. Wisdom is the effect of every movement of Intention. When we choose what we’re moving for we Master the Time of our Life. Days marked by Ollin are said to be Places in Time where we can see what we are becoming. The Aztecs say that on Ollin’s day it’s lucky to engage the “active principle.” It’s an unlucky day to just go along. Ollin guides us to Move, and to Move with ALL our Heart.

CIMI has taught us that Life Changes, that we have many lifetimes in One. What is True on Earth holds its integrity from the micro to the macro. The Major Changes in our Life, the chaos that is created from an old order, offers an opportunity to begin again. Something old HAS to die, before we can move on. Holding the Wisdom of Forgiveness, we might see how it’s impossible to move on without it.

Earth resides in the East, the direction of the Sunrise and the Fire of Divine Inspiration. Through the Element of Fire, we’re changed from one form into another. We can Choose the Fire to change us. The Fire represents a Passion in our Heart. Just like Mother Earth holds a Heart of molten matter, so does Human’s heart become malleable from the friction and heat of movement.

We keep moving by allowing our past to be an experience of another life. Humans Love Life. Some lives are harder than others to let go. We can see it through some who never move on from the experience of high school. It was a time of Life we were completing that was our first realization of personal power in the world. If we held power and position in high school, it can be hard to move on to another life. If we didn’t hold power, it can be hard to move on to another life. It’s hard for Human to let go of any lifetime. When we recognize the Truth of many lifetimes, we’ll know we must invest our Whole Self in the lifetime that is NOW.

At 69 I see the lifetime that is the Time of the Grandmothers and Grandfathers. It’s a very different life than any that has come before. We know we have less time to work with. In this lifetime, thoughts are turned to cause and effect. We have enough Wisdom to know the consequences of our own movement and intention. We have the same Feelings about the injustice of the time we invested that didn’t result in the expected effect. We have to find our new place, as others enter their own new lifetime. There are new questions of Love, when we’ve associated Time together with Love.

I will always hold a great Love for my Grandma Naomi. I never knew my maternal Grandmother who died of tuberculosis when my Mother was a child. When I wonder about the Love of my own grandchildren, I go back to those memories to remember what it was that Naomi did to create such an eternal memory of Love.

During my childhood Grandma lived on the farm. We made trips several times a year. She was always busy creating something. She was our family’s Mother of Invention who passed on the talents of “do-it-yourself.” She knitted, crocheted, tatted, painted plaster, made glass grapes… some craft was in process from her beginning to end of my experience. She killed and plucked the chicken for dinner. She told stories of times when her own children were growing up and she would lay down her chores to go hunting with her boys. I was 9 when Grandpa died and I realized that no words of Love had ever been spoken between us. From that day on, I never left Grandma’s house without telling her I loved her. Though she didn’t speak flowery words of Love, I knew her abiding Love. She remembered us in little ways. One of her traditions was to send a book of paper valentines every February that we would cut out and share at school. She taught me to crochet. Love wasn’t a matter of Time spent together.

The “empty nest syndrome” is a sign of a life that needs to be let go. We won’t always be the center of our children’s life. For them to Live and Grow to their own maturity, they HAVE to claim a new life of their own. Boy, can it be hard to let go when the Truth of that experience was a Time and Place when you lived at the center of the experience.

We Know how hard it is for Human to let go of Life. Yet, to have an ever-lasting Life we HAVE to move on to the next lifetime. Each lifetime will begin with chaos that is created out of an existing order of things. We have to embrace the New and Unknown experience as if it IS a New Life that we will create again from a new beginning. Our own Circle of Life has to keep turning to the Light of a Brand New Day. We CAN move on with the Wisdom that Love will always be, and that there are an unlimited number of ways that we Love is expressed between us. ALL the ways holding the same Power of Love. Every lifetime that was given was part of the Divine Design, holding the EQUAL opportunity to manifest a New Expression of Love… a new Divine Creation.

The Heron is the Cherokee nahaul that lives its life as a perpetual migration. A Heron doesn’t live its whole life in one place, but is forever moving on to the next field of abundance. It moves KNOWING that Blessings are Multiplied to Abundance it the next place of Life. The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix that rises to a new life from the ashes of the past. ALL Wisdom is born of Movement that creates our Human experiences of Life.

On Earth/CABAN we’re guided to Move on into the Life that is given to us Now. CIMI, the Sign of Major Life Change, is guiding us to the Understanding that it’s TIME to move on. To create a brand new beginning we have to Seize the Day that is Now. The past will always be ours as a treasure of Wisdom, but we have to conceive the past as a life we are leaving behind to know the New Life we’ve been dreaming of the Whole Way. NOW is the TIME to Know the Life of our Dreams. It is ALWAYS that Time. We will know it as soon as we can let go of one life for another. We hold the Power of all our Wisdom and Truth to Create it.

CIMI is the midwife who has been by our side. CIMI has been reminding us to Breathe. When we draw the Breath of Life and Spirit, when we Acknowledge LIFE EXPERIENCE as a Creation, all the Divine Promises of a Divine Creator are as close as the next breath. EVERY DAY our experience has been the beginning of another small lifetime of experience with a beginning and an ending that begins again. We’ll lose our fear of dying when we realize Eternal Lives that were conceived on Earth.

To all my relations, may we allow every lifetime its own Place in Time. May we seize the New Life that is waiting to be, waiting for us to See the Truth of a brand new opportunity to know Love from yet another perspective of Being. May we acknowledge the Beauty of Love that is because it is. May we see what small expressions of Love become when they are accumulated over time. May we WHOLLY let go, so those that follow are given the Unbridled Freedom of Love. The freedom we allow others to Be is a Divine Expression of Love – our own Beginning of Unconditional Love.

May we turn our Love to the Mother that’s guided us from the very beginning. When we feel lost from our old Love, may we remember one who has held us in her arms all the way. May we conceive of our True Love for Mother Earth that was never in question, no matter how we forget to express our Gratitude and Appreciation through a Conscious Exchange of Love. May we make up for the lost time and bring her a Blessing. The Elders said that when we bring an offering of Beauty to Mother Earth, she receives it as an unexpected surprise – just as a Mother is delighted in the moments her children remember.

Human mothers who Love often keep such offerings for a lifetime. As Above, So Below. Love is a Power that accumulates, because Love is never forgotten. Love changes from one expression to another. When we try to hang on to an old experience of Love, we stand in the way of the well-spring of Love that is overflowing with the New Love that is ours to Create.

May we see that we really don’t want to keep living the same life. The real Truth is that each lifetime had its own challenges. As much as we might think we want to always be back in the middle of an old life, the experience never quite measures up to our expectation. Our childhood home is never as big as we remember. When we do go back to share time taking care of babies, or return to our high school reunion, we discover we’re “over it” and we’re ready to go back home. By God’s Design, we’re invested in the Life that is Now. When we follow TRUTH in our Heart, we can let go and Live Again. We only have to let go to Live Again. Mother Earth will move us on. She has always Known the Way.

May we embrace our past like a hug. We wrap our arms around it and hold it for a moment in Time and then we let it go. Even Divine Moments need a beginning and an end.

in lak’ech, i am another you

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

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.

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. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hall)

  1. Appreciating this post on my Mayan Birthday today! So much juiciness here. One of the many passages here that I love is “…Earth is the source of all Human knowledge. The glyph illustrates 3 divine resources of thought that are given to Human to discern the Truth of experience. The straight line is our linear mind of reason. The wavy line is the unbridled thought of our imagination. The circles that rise represent Divine thoughts that are the Ether of our Collective Wisdom and the Creator’s thoughts from Above. Using the 3 together, holds the Power of Genius…..” Opening myself to this day that is also the full moon following a rare 11:11 portal. Open to the highest good on our beloved earth dancing through it’s rhythmic orbit through the galaxy!
