4 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Divine Guidance by Spirit: Day 4 of 13



4 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

The Wind/IK cycle of creation is a transformation to be manifested by the Word of God. A Promise spoken at the beginning by a Supreme Creator of Love is the Breath of Authority. Life depends on the next breath.  We are breathed by God.

Every creation is conceived by the Meaning and Purpose of the End. We don’t Consciously create without a reason. We are creating all the time, even if we’re just going along with someone else’s thoughts of reality.

We CHOOSE to create for a Feeling. Every Dream we conceive is born to move us to an experience we imagine Feeling when we’ve “won the game of our creation.” The Feeling we imagine at the end is the Meaning and Purpose of every creation. If we draw that Truth for Higher Wisdom, we can see how important it is to discern our own Feelings. What are we creating for? There are many Feelings that can motivate creation. Anytime we are creating, we are carrying a means to an end. Our Divine Power lies in creating for Love. In spite of our Human limitations, the Divine Wisdom of a Seed is imperishable. We CAN discern the Truth of our Feelings, though it takes a Choice to See the Truth. It takes a Choice to define our own reality, standing on the Truth we are holding Faith to Believe.

Seed/KAN is the symbol of Human’s Spark of Divine Consciousness as one piece of the divine Whole. Like the corn, Human Seeds are born side-by-side in many colors. Yet, they are part of the One and the Whole.

Tone 4 is the number of Stability, like the cube that is the most stable of all forms. In the 4th hour of Light we stand before the field of our creation. We define the boundaries and parameters. We weigh the possibilities of a harvest by the seeds that can be planted, according to the space, the conditions, and the lay of the land. Our Dream is a garden of beauty we are planting. We might consider which dreams need full-sun, where the conditions of the soil are best for one seed or another, and a place that will be easy to reach and tend to.

On Tone 4 we size up the task and conceive the “best rules” for the game. The Rules of Wind/IK’s cycle is to create by following a source of Divine Guidance within. Human’s most Divine Leap of Faith requires us to shed the skin of Human consciousness – to Dream Beyond Reason and to Reach for the Truth our Heart Feels is Real. The MULUC trecena awakened us to the Divinity of our Emotions. We know how human emotions can rule our behavior. Feelings are the very Source of Human’s Divine Power. Emotions can turn us away from our own Dreams. We MUST discern our own Divine Meaning and Purpose for Creation. We must define the Divinity of our Reason, to make the Leap from Faith to Believing.

Serpent/CHICCHAN represents the Divine Source of Power to ignite ALL the Sparks of Seed/KAN. The Serpent “lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.”


All Life on Mother Earth was seeded with the “N’oj” of Identity-Consciousness. At The Creation no life but Human was given a choice, except to carry out the meaning and purpose defined by a Supreme Creator. Still, the life of all things on Earth are subject to the influence of Human thoughts and intentions. We can altar the creation of abundance by our choices and creations. Human was given more than just the Breath of Life and the sustenance of Mother Earth to Live. Through a Gift of Divine Consciousness, God shared with Human the Power to manifest the Beauty of Heaven on Earth. The magic ingredient of Human Consciousness is the Choice for Gratitude, Love, and Forgiveness… Faith, Hope, and Charity.

Today marks the center of the 4th Season of the Tzolk’in, the Time and Place of a Spiritual Harvest. Each Season holds its own Design for Living and Loving. We need Time to transition from one intention of Love to another. Through the Element of Fire, 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN can burn away the flesh that clears the channel of Light between the Above and the Below. We are prepared to rise from the ashes through the Truth of God in Us. the Feelings motivated by our Ego to tune us in to the Pure Power of Feeling God in Us. Our Life will be changed by the Truth of a Perpetual Communion and Guidance from Above. Today we are given a release from “old truth” – all the experiences of life that “human reason” found contrary to the Divine Truth we held Faith to Believe. The Truth will be Known in our Heart at a Time and Place marked by God’s “X” as our Time to Know. God’s Divine Knowing is a Gift of Truth for ALL Time. In the all-at-once moment created by the catalyst, CHICCHAN, we will Know, and Know we Know because every experience led us exactly to this Time and Place. Today, our resistance to one experience or another is swept away by the Truth that ALL our Times and Places were Divine. For all the ups and downs, they led us to This Moment of Knowing. As a symbol of Divine Illumination, this Global Burner can stabilize the Divine Discernment to know the Truth of everything. Today, the Sacred Fires burn for the Whole, forging the Truth of God’s Love and the Promise of Answered Prayers. Through a baptism by Fire, God will ignite the Divine Consciousness of Knowing.

I was reaching for the words to express what the Global Burner means to me. Going to get a refill of coffee, I was side-tracked by Divine Guidance to clean the cat’s litter box. Daily maintenance only holds up for so long before the whole thing needs to be changed out. It’s not a task I look forward to. But, when the Time Comes it turns into an all-out effort to set the world right again for my friend, Shadow. Everything in Shadow’s world gets an overhaul from a fresh bowl of water to food prepared perfectly in a warmed clean dish. When the deed is done, I hold the Happiness that through one comprehensive offering, Shadow knows Love that intends to meet every need. Today, Shadow will walk in beauty through all the places she goes, conscious of a new beginning that was conceived by Love. Because it was conceived by Love, the Blessing holds the exponential factor of the shared-experience. I am blessed by Shadow’s happiness in Harmony and Equity, through an Offering of Atonement. That’s exactly what a Global Burner is all about. Off-loading old residual unwanted outworn energy from last season, clearing out the cobwebs and expand the channels for Divine Conciousness.

Divine Human Beings were given the Power to Change the world of physicality. One Human Being can change the Life of another. There’s a Human challenge on both sides. For the Gift to be given in integrity, there must be no debts created between one human and another. Unconditional Love is a gift that leaves open every Choice. We all see Love differently, depending on the Time and Place. To one, a gift may be a salvation. To another, charity can be the sign of personal injustice – the lack of what the other was able to give. We ALL want to Give. It’s very Hard to Receive. In the Center of our axis mundi is the balance that is the Sacred Exchange that is received as a Divine Offering, given by God through the nearest available vessel that could See and Acknowledge someone else reaching for the Light of a Miracle.

CHICCHAN holds the Truth of Love that was called from the heart. On Tone 4, we are stabilized through the Consciousness of a Divine Communion. CHICCHAN is the source of kundalini energy in the body. CHICCHAN is the involuntary charge that seizes our heart and sends the blood rushing through our veins. Our hair stands on end and we get goose bumps or our face turns red. If you listen, you can even hear the blood rush past your ears. We think we have to conjure our Spiritual Gifts, yet they are fully functioning at all times. We all had these feelings. What did we think they were for? They are undeniable confirmation of a gut feeling, a revelation, a sense of danger, or a Divine Illumination. CHICCHAN is the Feathered Serpent that “bestirs the blood to speak.”

The Serpent awakens our Divine Senses, like shedding old skin to Feel more deeply the Pure Vibration of Love. Serpent is the Divine Guidance seated within that draws us back and forth between the darkness and the light that is the way forward. The Intention of Serpent/CHICCHAN is the Power to Expand and Grow and Believe in our own Divine Senses of Truth.

This is SUCH an important climb that will Manifest our own Consciousness of Divine Guidance. We will Ascend on 13 Jaguar, Knowing we are Changed. Our Answered Prayer will be the Power to shape-shift to any realm of being through the direction of our thoughts.

CHICCHAN holds the Element of Fire. On the Medicine path, sacred objects are kept wrapped in red cloth, and never put on display as a decoration, only left out to be placed on the altar. Sacred objects such as Eagle feathers, or the Sacred Pipe hold the Sacredness of their tradition when they are consecrated into a Divine Practice. (Eagle feathers are traditionally wrapped in red cloth when not used in practice at the altar.)

Beyond traditional Sacred Objects, an object is Sacred because You Say it is So. You claim a Meaning and Purpose Sacred to You. Sacred Objects are a Gift to your Self to Empower Remembering.

You can observe the Sacred Fire Ceremony indoors if you are unable to build a fire outdoors. You need 20 wooden matches for the way I was taught on the Medicine Wheel path, and an abalone shell or a cookie sheet can safely serve the purpose. The Sacred Fire Ceremony built with matches is shared on the Sacred Fire Ceremony page. You can define your own way with a candle or in your own Imagination. The critical aspect is that it is carried out from beginning to end as a Sacred Ceremony. Fire is the Pure Energy of Light and Life that can change us from one form to another.

To all my relations, may our hearts be called together to meet around the Sacred Fires that are burning for Humanity. May we give thanks for the Blessing to be given by Serpent/CHICCHAN. May be present with the Feelings. Our most Divine Gifts are very COMMON, because they are given in harmony with the whole. May we give thanks for small common things, that can grow into something exponential and beyond our wildest dreams. Seeds grow like that. May we give thanks that Divine Human Beings grow like that.

in lak’ech, i am another you

4 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)

Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.

Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.

Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.

    • I’d love to share if you can send a link… is there a link you can add in the comments? That will show up with the post. Let me know. I’m eager to hear your music! love, in lak’ech, Debra


  1. Well, it is in Google Drive, or I could send an email. But if I try to forward or send from google drive to your address here, it tells me I can’t do that. Do you have a private address I could use, and then you could post it.


    • Can you upload to youtube? I don’t have a way to publish a file like that directly to the blog – but I can embed from it if you load it on youtube. I’ve only used it a couple of time but if you subscribe/login there should be menu for uploading files. You might look first to see what the compatible file formats would be. Sorry it isn’t any easier. love, in lak’ech, Debra
