1 Earth / CABAN – The Dream of Mother Earth: Day 1 of 13

1 Earth / CABAN


The next 13 days…

Greetings Kin,

Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth, symbolizing the Movement that Creates Time. Human is born of Earth, sharing a Life of Movement that defines our Meaning of Time. Every thing known to Human was learned from Mother Earth. Her perpetual movement creates the Time of our Life.

CABAN creates a story with a beginning and end. CABAN adds the element of Time to our Divine Discernment. CABAN helps us see seasons of Life and the evidence that each cycle of Time has a life all its own.

The Cherokee Day Sign is the Heron, a bird of perpetual migration. The Heron’s way of Life is to always move toward the next field of Abundance. It isn’t looking for the final resting place. The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix who rises from the ashes of its past to Live Again.

CABAN is the Sign to Move from an old life into the New. Through the Experience of Creation we were given the Keys to the Divine Kingdom. Our past is now a buried treasure meant to “rest in peace.” We would only waste time “crying over spilled milk.” The past doesn’t define our future. Our Karma was cleared to begin with a clean slate. Through the Key of Forgiveness the Whole will share the blessing.

CABAN offers the Light of Divine Inspiration. CABAN’s Meaning and Purpose is Movement. For a new life to begin we have to move in to the Truth of our New Reality. CABAN offers the truth of our Heart’s Desire and the direction where it lies in our future. Every life that was given an intention of Migration senses an Unseen Place to go, and a Time to go. CABAN offers the Divine Inspiration that it’s Time to Go and to Move with all our Heart. CABAN will inspire the Leap of Faith toward the field of our Dreams. We will know what it Feels like, where we want to be.

4 SUN/AHAU: Global Burner Day
Burner Days mark an Energetic Release. The Fires of chaos and change have been burning within. The Elders call it the contractions of Life. The illusions of an old life are bearing down on us with an Intention to set us free. On the Global Burner day the residue of past experience is burned away.

4 AHAU is a Day of Prophecy and the Beginning of Human’s Destiny. 4 AHAU is Humanity’s Destiny Kin, the birthday of Human Life on Earth. 4 AHAU is the beginning date for all prophecies of Human Time. 4 AHAU marked December 21, 2012, the ending and new beginning of a Human era of Time. Every encounter with the Sun holds an experience of Revelation. On February 5, 4 Sun/AHAU marks a revelation of a new era of our Human Life. We will Realize the Power of a New Beginning. Under the Number 4 of Stability, we will establish new pillars of faith for a new life to rise above the ashes.

9TH UINAL:  4 Sun/AHAU will complete the 8th uinal of Divine Justice. Our Common Dream is the Freedom to Live and Be, and to Create what our Heart Desires. We are set Free to live a New Life by Forgiveness. God opened the door so we could see beyond the veil into the Light of our Future. With Wisdom we will employ the Patience to See the Big Picture. Survival was never a “dream” but the human burden of “life or death.” We’ve chosen a Life of Faith over Fear. Earth/CABAN holds the Knowledge for Wise Choices led by the Desires of our Heart. The 9th uinal fulfills the Law of Cause and Effect. Choices for Love will be proven by a Divine Effect. Believing in Love, Love is what we will expect, and what we will find. Love will blossom to Create the Beauty of Heaven on Earth.

The Seed for a New Life is planted on Mother Earth. The Divine work begins to tend the garden of our Dreams. What happens in a Garden is wrought by a Divine Hand. Human’s work is to serve the Seed what it needs to grow. The Harvest will be manifested by the Divine Will of God. God will tend to the Source of Life, Light, and Happiness.

The Earth/CABAN trecena offers Time to see what we are becoming. Through the Element of Fire, CABAN will share a Passion for Life. We are beginning a migration to a new reality. Like all creatures given a journey, written within the Divine Design is the Way. The Timing is a Divine Inspiration. It’s a Divine Passion set off by the senses and cellular memories of Time and the Season. The Wildebeests know when it’s Time. Earth/CABAN signals that it’s OUR Time to Move, and to Move with all our heart.

By the traditions of the North, the “Spring” of this Tzolk’in round falls in synchronicity with a “Spring” on a planetary scale of experience. The Whole of Humanity waits and dreams of the first signs of New Life. Our Hearts know the Season and the Time to Live Again. Spring is the time for pruning away the dead branches to give Life its best chance for Abundance.

Through the Wisdom of the Seed, we learned away to leave behind what no longer serves. God cleared our karma. With the Intention of Forgiveness our burdens will be left in the past. We learned that our limited human ways are only a shadow of flesh that stands in the way of seeing our Whole Light. The Seed can clearly see in the darkness. We hold the Design for Wisdom to see beyond shadows to the Light of Spirit. We found a Way to bring Light to the darkness, human’s call for Unknown Love. We know the noise of Human Love and the melody of Divine Love from a heartbeat within.

With Divine Wisdom we Know the Truth of Love. The Creator’s Divine Love is Always and Forever, given in Harmony and Equity to Human Beings who are always and forever reaching to know it’s True. The Ascension that is marked from the beginning is 13 Offering/MULUC. Waiting ahead is the Divine Inspiration to see how Human’s Intention of Forgiveness is our Most Divine Sacrifice in every Here and Now experience. With the Wisdom of Love for ALL Time, we’re given the Power of Divine Agency to Live the Truth of the Way. Our success will be guaranteed by a Promise that we’ve Asked to Believe by Faith.

With the Wisdom of the Seed, we know what we are becoming. We see the Truth of the Light before we ever get past the darkness of our trip through the underworld. Earth/CABAN is a symbol of Mother Earth who is guided by the Fire within to keep moving in perfect balance with the Light Above.

A Migration of Life is a Movement Toward Light, Beauty, and Abundance. The Time to begin is a Divine Inspiration. Written within is a Divine Sense of the Heart, that draws upon ALL our Divine Senses – Smell, Taste, Feelings, Sights, and Sounds. Every one of our Human senses holds its own Perception of Love to share with our Divine Consciousness of Knowing… all invisible powers of Love.

This time we can hold Faith that darkness WILL reveal Human’s Light. We are carried through a cycle of “Light.” Mother Earth will move us forward. The Time she creates will be an archeological treasure for Love, the Highest Calling from Human to Forgive. We’ll get the scent and we’ll hear the story of Love that was invested with All our Heart. We’ll know it’s Time to Forgive so we can all move forward together, Right Now. Earth/CABAN will carry us. Guided by Compassionate Love, we’ll Long to Save One Another.

CABAN is NOT a time to go along with the noise of the world below. It’s time to strike out with our own Wisdom that Love is Divinely Promised to Be. We’ll believe in a way we can’t See or Hear, guided by an Illumination of Divine Light Above.

Earth holds all the Conditions to change one thing to another. The Elders taught us to bury the things that are dying so Mother Earth can give them a New Life. Earth holds the ashes of Humanity and the Water of our Spirit. If there’s a fear we need to let go, we can carry it to Mother Earth and share the memorial, giving thanks for what we learned. We can ask Mother Earth to give it a Divine Purpose for its Next Life in the Future.

“Living with all our Heart” we will draw upon the Power of ALL our Wisdom and Knowing. We will use all our Senses for the Discernment of Beauty. Mother Earth gives us endless ways to perform the rituals and ceremonies to call upon our most Divine Agency of Love in the Here and Now, the Holy Ground of Earth. Everything Humans know we’ve learned from her body and her movement through Time. Holding the Element of Fire in her heart, she can deliver the Perception of Beauty and the Truth of Love known by ALL Things. She is a Time and Place where we can Eternally GIVE our Love, to KNOW the Truth that Love IS ALL TIME. We can finally SEE that every slice of Time can reflect the Truth of Love that is Becoming.

From mid December to March, the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti around Ndutu and the Ngorongoro conservation are alive with migrant herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles. During the calving seasons of late January to mid March over 80% of the wildebeest give birth given the abundant water available.

Living things around the world will be called to the Migration. The Wildebeests have already smelled the scent of Water and Abundance in another place that will nourish the new life growing within. They have to get there. The butterflies will worth their way out of a coccoon, see their new wings and know it’s time to fly. They’ll know their own Higher Ground is a place where one life ended so the next could carry on the Creation for Love. So is the Great Migration of the Cranes already underway.

The Whole World senses a new season of change. The living Love on Earth is striking out together. Spring will be the Faith we hold. We will see the signs of it first in a small bud. Given the Wisdom of Life on Earth, we will Know that the bud is a Promise. When human sees the bud, we know there will be a flower that blooms. All the Truth to make our way through the darkness of the beginning, we can know by being up close and personal with our Mother Earth. We will willingly go where she moves us. We will Bring the Light of Humanity to Earth as the Truth of our perfect Time and Place, because this is where we are. We can believe in our Time and Place when we remember a Mother who always turns us back to the Light and who moves so that ALL things have their own Season to Live and Be.

Earth/CABAN is the Mother that holds Consciousness of all the Lives she has born from her own flesh. By the Aztec description, the Ollin trecena is ruled by Tlazolteotl, the goddess of cotton and weaving, of sexuality and childbirth. She is the eater of sin, the scavenger who eats away the ills that darken the heart. She can eat away the flesh of the ego. The Ollin’s cycle is “13 days of stolen secrets and odd twists of fate.” Tlazolteotl is the fierce Mother like a badger. Her claws are shown on either side of the face of K’inich Ahau. It’s not wise to mess with her children. She will shake the earth itself. “The ills created by shock can sometimes only be cured by greater shock. These are good days for self-purification; bad days for self-gratification.” Tlazolteotl is said to guard the life of the still-born, those yet to live their life. She holds Time for life to be.

To all my relations, may we begin a Sacred Journey into the Light of our New Life. May we sit with the Fires of Love to know the path we are called to follow. May we employ the “earth magic” of Gratitude to remember the Truth of our own Miracles.  May we listen for the Call to Move with all our Heart. We are One in the Whole prepared to take the Leap. May we take the Leap to believe.

We are one in millions hearing the call to be the movers and shakers of Earth. May we move to the place of Abundance where ALL Love can be. God has Divine Provisions in place to save the last one.

in lak’ech, I am another you

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

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 best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

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 and perpetual motion, 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 Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
