THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. On Tone 4 we measured the field of our Creation. In the 5th Hour the Inherent thought of creation is to round up the tools for the ways and means to the end. Our Common thoughts are part of the Design that serves a meaning and purpose. Tone 5 is the Common thought from the center of the cube, a central organizing force that manages resources and application.
Creation of our New Life is intended to begin, knowing we have everything we need. The Divine, Common thought upholds the Faith for believing. Human doesn’t question why we do it. Though, it’s an exception for an artist to sit down without having all the paints, brushes, and tools gathered within reach. Within, our Heart knows that Creation IS a Divine Communion and we want to be Present without interruption. So will our resources be a Muse for the Creation. If “blue” isn’t at hand, there’s the potential for human to substitute another available color that wasn’t the Divine idea.
IMIX is a symbol of a Divine Mother’s Love. The glyph illustrates a jar or the Mother’s breast that holds the Nourishment of Life in the arms of Love, from a place close to the Heart. IMIX is the duty of a Mother to uphold the Life drawn from her womb. IMIX is the Resource of Compassionate Love that feeds our Heart and Mind the Truth of Love.
Crocodile/IMIX is the Primordial Mother, witness to the Dawn of our Awakening. She felt the quickening and consciousness of the life within. The world presents many questions when we first wake up. The Divine First Question we all asked at the first consciousness of being was, “Who am I?” “Who we are” will be the prevailing question of today. We’ll define our Self by the Power we hold. It’s very important to see the Big Picture. Our Power is the Resource of a Hand and Authority for Divine Creations.
We must have the Patience to Know our Creation is Divine. An attempt to apply Divine Power to an unworthy end will only lead to suffering in the end. When we attempt to use Divine Power for a human end, human’s ego will cast a shadow on the Light. It’s been said, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.” Remember the claws of the scavenger Mother, who will tear away at the flesh that stands in Life’s way. The Crocodile is a primordial Mother, holding a Primal Instinct to be fiercely protective of her children. We can skate by for so long by human intentions, but the Primordial Mother knows the absolute boundaries of her children’s territory.
THE 9TH UINAL
We completed the 8th uinal of Divine Justice. We feel the Truth of what God intended to be. In the zenith hour we were offered the revelation of a possibility. Tone 8 is the number of “pure spirit” that marks the transformation phase of the trecena that is always carried out by a Divine Agency. Tone 9 holds an Intention of Patience to see the bigger picture. We learned that seeing the ending was the way a creation begins. We learned the ways and the means is to have a Divine Reason. When we know we are creating for a meaning and purpose of Love, we can believe in the Power of Love. The number 9 completes the Holy, Holy, Holy transformation to our next Higher Ground in a Relationship of Love, Grace, and Divine Provisions. With 9 there’s a warning for Consciousness for the suffering we could bear for lack of insight. Human will be inclined to measure human ways and means. To know our resources of Genius, we must take stock of the Divine Resource of Love.
IMIX symbolizes the Divine Feminine aspects of Compassionate Love and Discernment. Our Mother always knew what was on our mind and in our heart. She knows what her children feel to apply a Divine Inspiration to a meaning and purpose of Love.
Crocodile/IMIX is a day of wild ideas and imagining. A Divine Mother shares the Truth that we can be anything our Heart Desires. So, she shares Divine ideas. They are random, coming out of the blue. They don’t come in any order or any directions. They are meant to be the Muse of OUR creation. IMIX is the “first thought” that sparks ideas. IMIX is Red, signaling a day of “Light,” the illumination of a Divine Inspiration.
IMIX is the Mother of Innovation. Choosing the IMIX wild idea you Love leads the road to Genius. Love holds the power of curiosity.
We can feel like we’re a genius on IMIX from all the incoming ideas and possibilities of Life. It’s a melody our Ego can get lost in, unless we apply the Wisdom of Divine Discernment. Our Wise Choice will come from using our human faculties of reason for a supernatural purpose.
Crocodile/IMIX is a day we are guided to pray for a Sound Mind and the Reason of Common Sense. When our Consciousness awakens in a realm of Spirit, we are suddenly present in the open air and the field of all thoughts. They are offered on display, like a carousel of choices. And, they are ALL wildly beautiful as things unknown before. The Truth that we can create anything must be reigned by Common Sense, our Divine Faculties of Truth. Otherwise, we run the risk of inspiration turned to wild schemes and grand ideas about our Self. Happiness is an end manifested by ways and means of Vigilant Consciousness.
We have to at least see a speck of the possibility to stay on course. The road to Higher Creations is one step at a time. We should know by now that there are reasons for human to know every step of the way. It takes Wisdom to wield the Divine Power we’re given. And, it takes a vigilant observation of Divine Communion to even remember the way.
With Patience we will choose a Dream we Love and as an expression of Love in the Time and Means that carries it out will be the Beauty in the end. The Arts and Crafts of a Divine Path of Consciousness are acknowledged as a Communion of Spirit, Sacred Movements. Years ago, admiring the traditional Navaho paintings of the Corn Women I mentioned to one of the Moon Mothers my interest to paint it. She stated clearly and simply that the painting was a Sacred Ceremony. I got the message it was not something to paint without engaging it that way. The traditions passed down, the words, the ways, and Divine Thoughts of creations are manifested in their Beauty when they are carried out in the traditional ways.
The Elders taught that this is the reason we always ask Divine Permission for everything. To manifest a Sacred Creation we ask forgiveness. We beseech the Grandfathers and Grandmothers to acknowledge our Divine Intention to do it in the best way we know how. The Elders taught us to ask permission of ALL our resources and Spiritual Tools. We give thanks to the Sage and Sweetgrass. We ask permission that they might be used for our Sacred Purpose. In our Sacred Ceremonies of Divine Love we are guided to employ the Patience to Honor all the Divine Resources of Mother Earth to the highest scale of our ability. We can reason that God wants us to see the Whole of the Power of Love that is shared with a human hand.
With Patience we can see beyond humans wild ideas to the Genius ideas that are marked by Love. IMIX holds the Element of Fire to ignite the Passion in our Heart. With ways and means still unknown, we CAN hold in Faith in a Creation of Love. Passion ignites our curiosity to see the end.
Yesterday, in the face-off of the 49ers and the Chiefs in the Super Bowl, I was praying on behalf of my son who takes these things very seriously. Home, growing up, was on the border of Kansas and Missouri, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. My prayer was for both teams to play with all their heart, imagining the joy my son would feel when the Chief’s finally pulled off a win. My heart was lifted when the quarterback said the game was won by Faith. Though, there was a human shadow visible for the world to see. I know the Chief’s war call wasn’t conceived by bad intentions. It’s the display of human’s unconscious over-enthusiasm over a wild idea, one that was never given the patience for a Divine Discernment of Love.
If there ever was such a “war call” it would have been Sacred as a Declaration for the Provision of Life. Wisdom is knowing to ask permission and think things through on behalf of the Whole. I still haven’t painted the corn women, and won’t until the Inspiration is Divine. Maybe I’m only meant to Love the one that holds ALL the sacred traditions in tact. Patience offers a Divine approach.
ALL Creation can be Designed as our Sacred Ceremony of Love. Everything can be a Sacred Ceremony. The “kitchen angels” that prepared the ceremonial feast blessed the kitchen with Sage, Sweetgrass, and Prayers. Before the food was ever served is was Seen Sacred. The very first plate was prepared for Spirit and placed as an Offering to Mother Earth. (The Dogs were always the first to find and receive the gift of Love.) At the table, food brought to the table was blessed again, remembering it arrived here in this Time and Place for a Sacred Purpose. The Elders taught us to touch the food on our plate, seeing and acknowledging a gift to Body, shared as a Provision of Spirit. We were reminded of the field where it grew and the whole crop. We imagined and blessed all the human hands that manifested a blessing here and now. We prayed the Honor of one, would Bless the Whole, for all the lives that would be forgotten. It’s a Divine Way to begin every human creation. We can make a Sacred Ceremony out of washing the dishes.
What is Sacred IS Sacred when we say it is so. In human’s hand is the Power to create Divinity Beauty with the Patience to know our Highest Reasons to carry it out. We’ve been given the most Divine Reason to Create the Light for the world to know.
To all my relations, may we remember the Resource of Blessing ALL things for a Divine Purpose. May we know that a Discernment for Love is the means to manifest Beauty in Harmony with the Whole. May we dream of the Beauty that could be created by Compassionate Love. The Love for the Whole will manifest a creation of Divine Genius.
May we say our Life is Sacred so God will hold the permission to make it Beautiful. May we discern all things Sacred for the Faith to believe we will manifest the Beauty of Creation.
in lak’ech, I am another you

TRUTH OF A TRANSFORMATION: Looking back to the beginning of a dedicated daily practice, Mother Earth was among my challenges. Autumn was a season I could never wholly love, marking the time for a seasonal depression. I moved from Tucson to the Pacific Northwest over the weekend that Day Light Savings fell back. I was thrown from Light into the Darkness that lasted til June. The trip to Ek’ Balam 9 years later marked the miracle. All I needed was a place so hot and humid I could hardly move to come home LOVING the shade and the blessing of Rain. I went to the Yucatan in October. I didn’t see the Whole truth of the miracle until the next Fall. The Fall of 2019 marks the first year I loved ALL the seasons.
I remembered when I heard news of the local weather yesterday. January 2020 has been the rainiest month on record. I hadn’t noticed. Rain used to stop me from going anywhere. Yesterday I was running errands in the rain without thought of an umbrella. God holds the Authority of Time. God can expand the Time for Love in ways beyond human understanding, and beyond a human effort.

5 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee, Turtle/DAK’SI)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.
Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg, to the Maya, the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth.
