We celebrate a New Year of the Haab in the Northern Hemisphere. K’inich Ahau heralded the first Light of 9 Earth/CABAN as the Year Bearer to lead a new Solar cycle of planetary intention. Tone 9 Completes, holding the Intention of Patience to See the Big Picture. Earth/CABAN is the Movement that creates Time, and the experiences that Define our Identity by the Choices we make. The Cherokee Heron, symbolizes Life as a perpetual movement toward the next Human field of Abundance.
On Mother Earth there is always a field of Abundance for the Wisdom to Create the treasures today for the Miracles of tomorrow. In the K’iche tradition, the sign N’oj is the Sacred Word that defines a Consciousness of Identity. It’s said that days marked by the Ollin, Caban, N’oj, and Heron, are marked by a Light of Knowing who we are. The Aztec Ollin lies at the center of the stone calendar marking 20 places in Time. This is NOT the time to go along. This Time is marked as a cycle that will define us, a time to make our own Wise choices, and to Live with all our heart.
Today begins a Solar cycle that will share the Big Picture of what Divine Human Beings were intended to be, the Heroes that God dreamed in the End and Loved enough to create Time to witness a Miracle from the beginning.
May we give thanks for the Day and Honor the Divine Experience planned ahead, waiting to be seen and known for All Time. May the Miracle be that Human Beings divinely see and acknowledge how much we love one another. Earth/CABAN holds the Element of Fire and can strike the Flames of Love in our heart.
May we begin the New Year with a Blessing to remember the Mother that offers us everything “To Be.” May our Offering be our Dream, so she can give it another life as God’s Highest Manifestation.
love, in lak’ech, Debra
DEDICATED TO IAN XEL LUNGOLD
The journal for the Offering/MULUC trecena is dedicated to Ian Xel Lungold. This is the Galactic Week of Ian’s Destiny Kin, 12 Sun/AHAU. Ian will be honored on my trip to the Yucatan over the Day of the Dead observances in gratitude for my first introduction to the Mayan Calendar. Ian’s Destiny was to share the Light of Illumination (Sun/AHAU) for Divine Understanding (Tone 12). Thank you Ian!
My deepest Thanks and Appreciation are extended to Michael Shore who has preserved Ian’s wisdom on MayanMajix.com, and for being a friend and helper on my own path. Thank you Michael!
“It is consciousness that divides creation into its separate parts. It is only when you are conscious of something(s) that you can appreciate that part of creation by and with your discernment.
Your life is peppered with moments when you noticed some details of your environment or situation. Like, seeing the “Veins in the leaf” or the beauty of color and pattern in a butterfly’s wings. Of course you have your own examples but each of them were the exercise of your consciousness noticing the differences of stimuli available in that moment. The more conscious you are, the more you can take in effortlessly.
With consciousness, each thing in our lives can stand out and be appreciated. With lower levels of consciousness the tendency is to group or lump things together into a grey threatening mass. What I think this whole journey of conscious evolution is about, is the increasing ability to be conscious of, appreciate and express gratitude for all of Creation piece by piece until we get it all…” ~ From an Article by Ian Lungold
Tone 9 is the Peak Tone that Completes a Transformation. Tone 9 offers the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. A Transformation of Spirit is completed through a Realization of Higher Purpose.
CABAN raises our Consciousness to the Movement of Mother Earth that Creates Time through which we could have a dynamic experience of the Creator’s Love. Through the movement of Mother Earth we can experience the Dawn, the Sunrise that brings Light to the Darkness.
Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth. The K’iche Maya call it Noj, the Day Sign of Knowledge. Mother Earth is the Source of everything Human knows.
Noj is revered as a Sacred Word, meaning all the capabilities of the Human Mind. Noj is Human’s means of Movement with a Divine Meaning and Purpose. Noj is the Force that influences us to move by Divine Intention and Be Seen in the Identity of our Spirit.
The Cherokee Day Sign, the Heron, is a nuhaul of Movement, living a life of perpetual migration. The Heron is the symbol of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. The Aztec Sign the Ollin, marks the center of the Aztec calendar and the 20 positions of the all-in-one. The Face at the center of the Ollin is K’inich Ahau, the Sun shining the Light of Illumination.
Today is a day to make our own Choices. The Aztec call it a lucky day for the “active principle” and an unlucky day for the “passive principle.” Choose a direction and move with purpose in your own Truth.
Mother Earth needs the Healing of our Love. Love is a Force that Heals Anything. We aren’t the only ones who are struggling. Mother Earth Feels the Heart of the Whole. She’s the closest and best place to give all our Healing Love, to help replenish the supply she is perpetually paying forward.
To all my relations, may we pay a Conscious Visit to Mother Earth. May we get as close as we can to her vibrations of Love. May we Honor her with our Gratitude for a lifetime of Love and Beauty she offers to every generation. May we count the ways she blesses us, knowing Love is the only thing of our own that we can bring that she didn’t already give to us. May we rest in her arms and count blessings to her that we’ve never told her before.
in lak’ech, i am another you

9 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
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 Hail)

Bix a beel?
I will look forward to seeing your comments when I return. My thoughts are with you in Spirit.
A CALL TO ALL DREAMERS TO SACRED CEREMONY AT EK’ BALAM…
This is the Time and Place of a Miracle. It’s been my Dream to experience and see the place where the sacred traditions of the Maya are carried out, and where Ian Lungold was inspired to share the blessing of the Tzolk’in calendar. I’ve imagined this experience as a Divine Illumination that can open our eyes to the Truth of our Self, holding the Power of Co-Creation with the Creator.
I extend my deepest Appreciation to all of you. Those whose donations made a way, and those whose presence with me here are One in the Miracle of Believing it was possible. “Thank you” can’t express what I feel in my heart. all my love, Debra
