Happy Maya New Year, WAXAJQIB B’AATZ (8 B’atz)
THE TRECENA OF SEED/KAN
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’atz) marks the completion of the Daykeeper’s journey from “the beginning of the world.” Tone 8 represents the Justice of Harmony and Equity, the Creator’s Highest Intention of Love. God intended to Love us all the same and bless us all the same. Unconditional Love was the Only Way for the all-in-one to be seen equally in the Light.
As Above, So Below. The Number 8 (Waxajqib) is the symbol of “pure spirit” and Abundance to Infinity. We honor the Whole that made the journey together, the 20 Divine Perspectives through which Human (2) ascends to Higher Ground. Our Intention of Love matters. God counts our ways of Love for the Divine Justice of our Miracle. At the New Year, each of the 260 Destiny Kin that guided the journey from Above are counted to Honor the All-in-One.
The New Year marks the Divine Justice for a Human Creator of Love. Monkey/CHUEN is the Weaver of Time and the Master of Art who weaves our Life into a thing of Beauty. Monkey/CHUEN walks side-by-side with the Dog. With the Wisdom of Love held by the Dog, CHUEN creates the Beauty of Life from all the experiences of Love that the Dog marked as buried treasure.
Every journey of creation is a “hard road” for Human who must hold Faith in the Unseen. 8 Monkey/CHUEN is the return of Human’s orbit. By an Intention of Divine Justice, the Creator intends for us to see the Truth of our Journey and the Light of Wisdom we brought back home for a new experience of Life on Earth. We are children of an expanding Universe. Every journey we make leads us back home to the Higher Ground of Knowing. A Divine Agency will Intervene to prove how far we’ve come.
Monkey/CHUEN resides in the West, the direction of the Unknown, CHUEN’s canvas of All Possibility. Holding the Element of Water and the Ether of Spirit, CHUEN holds the Truth of the Beauty in its Heart. With the Consciousness of Eternal Love and a Divine Provision for creation, the Monkey grasps the Power of Love to manifest the Beauty of our Time. Beauty is created by every Intention of Love.
The New Year honors the all-in-one the Sum of our Whole Investment in Love in the Life We created before. We all held the same dream to manifest a Higher State of Love and Happiness. We all reached for the same Power to know a greater Freedom and Happiness. God Designed us as Creators. By Design our Truth of Highest Consciousness is our own Power to Create the Experience.
Monkey/CHUEN is the mystic and the alchemist of Love. CHUEN sees an unlimited palet of colors and expressions through which Human Knows the Experience of Beauty and Love. CHUEN is Consciousness of the Beauty of ALL Time. Holding Consciousness of ALL Possibility, the Monkey SEES All the Possibilities of Love on Mother Earth from which we could create our own Masterpiece. Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder. Our Highest Meaning and Purpose is to be the Beholders of Beauty for God.
Humanity was created in Harmony and Equity to be the all-in-one as God’s Whole Perspective. We each see things in our own way. Our perspective is formed by the Wisdom of OUR Experience. Each one was equally given a gift to See Love Our Way. Our Divine Way was shared by 20 perspectives, ways we could count on fingers and toes. Our human way was drawn to its own Divine Way by the Choices we made. Each Day Sign guided a perspective of many Divine Thoughts and the way to see the Truth in the matter and movement of the Universe. Based on our own Experience of Life, we grasped the Divine Thoughts that spoke to our own Heart. Truth that spoke to our Heart became Our Truth, Our Way, and Our Expression of Faith.
The Elders say there are many ways to accomplish the same thing. By Human Nature we try to create the end we can see and imagine. We define our own Divine Justice from a limited human perspective. We think we know in advance what will be our Highest State of Happiness. Monkey can see the Truth of all our Time and Experience. The Monkey knows the beauty beyond our human imagination. Through our prayers for Divine Intervention we give permission for the Miracle. The Monkey knows that God’s Dream of Love is Beauty our imagination. With the Truth of Love that covers every provision of human limitation, we let go of our way, our human “outcome of Love” for a Divine Masterpiece.
With Unconditional Love at its side, Monkey knows there is always a Higher Way. The burden we carry back home are all the “unanswered prayers” of the Divine Dream we had before. They are the human burdens of Time. Through a Gift of Divine Justice our Consciousness will be raised to the Truth of a Divine Inheritance that already waits in the future. “All that is not” is the Blessing that Will Be manifest through a Higher Reality of Love. This Day begins a New Journey to See the “unanswered prayers” of our Dreams that ARE coming true.
The Holy Celebration of the New Year is human’s Intention to create a journey that leads us somewhere. Behind the veil of Human’s illusion, our path can appear as an endless circle of the same experiences over and over again. Over and over again is a Divine Gift when every journey offers a Higher Perspective of the Truth. It takes a Higher Consciousness to see that with each turn we gain a Higher Wisdom of Truth.
The Monkey is a Celebration of Consciousness and all the Divine Thoughts that can be conceived by Human’s imagination. A Monkey doesn’t limit itself to Human ways. If everything is possible, why do it “human’s hard way?” Why not create in Fun and Magic ways? The Monkey imagines Divine Ways that don’t include a burden carried on Human’s back. Monkey/CHUEN is the Master Artist that holds a magic brush. A sweep of the Monkey’s brush of all possibility, lays the paint of God’s colors… an endless spectrum of Light. Monkey spreads Love around to see the Beauty that will be wrought by a Divine Hand Above. The Monkey’s only Dream is the Beauty of the Creation.
To all my relations, may we kneel to the Hand of Divine Agency that creates ALL the Beauty in our Life. May we know that God’s hand touched all the Beauty we see. May give thanks for the “eyes of Spirit” that can see beyond human’s illusion to imagine the Beauty of Divine Love. May we know that we were given a Power to Create the God of our Dreams – and even our wildest dreams would be a dim reflection of the Divine Truth. May we imagine Beauty that would take the Whole of Humanity to begin to see.
May we Remember how we Feel in the presence of Beauty and Love. In our CHICCHAN moments of Love, Love is all there is. May we dedicate our Self to follow the Road of our Destiny that is the unfolding beauty of Love. For every darker night, may we claim a brighter day. May we allow the polarity of our experience to be the proof of Higher Love to Come. May we claim the Truth of a Circle that IS always leading us to a Higher Consciousness of the Light at the Center of all things, an Eternal Love that is always shining.
May we give thanks for the Divine Perspectives that are offered by Design, Unseen ways in our Self. May we give thanks for the Spark within to See it and Believe it. May we bless the Holy Ground as we step into a New Life and a Higher Consciousness of the Beauty already Multiplied to Abundance by the Light of all our Dreams. May we Receive the Divine Blessing of our Love “Seen by the Creator” to be made a thing of Beauty for ALL Time.
Happy New Year. May our candles burn in consciouisness of one another and the One Dream we share for the Whole.
May we make a joyful noise and celebrate the drumbeat of a Divine Life. May we join together in Spirit by the Fire and Light for a New Day, and a New Life that is being blessed from the beginning by the Promise of Divine Justice.

THE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION: SACRED CEREMONY
The traditional ways of indigenous ceremony taught by my Elders is outlined on the Mayan New Year Page. In the cosmology of the Maya, when we follow the traditions of the Old Ones, we offer their Spirit a Life in our Consciousness. The Power doesn’t lie human carrying it out in a perfect way, but in the Divine Intention of the Heart. What is “Sacred” is manifested by Spirit, when WE Say it is So.
In todays world we are scattered and many of us are without a close community to perform the Blessings and Sacred Ceremonies on our behalf. The Elders say it is Good and Worthy to initiate our Self. We only have to kneel in humility to share the Intentions of our Heart, and call upon the Divine Intervention of the All-in-One. God will initiate us in a Divine Way.
On WAXAJQIB B’AATZ the Mayan priest observes the Sacred Fire Ceremony. Those who will dedicate themselves to Count the Days are called forward for an Initiation of Spirit. The Mayan priest will bless the path for a new journey, counting the names of all the days. So are we counted for a Divine Intention of Time. Each One in the Circle of Life is called by Name in the Count of Days. All Life on Earth has a Beginning. The Next Holy Day is the Global Burner, 4 Sun/AHAU (Destiny Kin 160). 4 AHAU marks the first day of Human Life on Earth, the Day of Humanity’s Divine Destiny.
May we clear the ashes for the First Fire of the New Year and give thanks for the Creator’s faithfulness and Love for The Creation. When we meet an obstacle to Love any part of it, may we remember the view from the top of the pyramid of Beauty all around.

8 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eights carefully weighs 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.’
Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.
Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.
