THE TRECENA OF STORM/CAUAC: A RENEWAL & REGENERATION OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. The Intention of the Divine Feminine is to build a foundation for our Dream, holding a Balanced Perspective in all 4 directions. Number 4 is the Sum of 2+2 as Balance Created of human understanding, Above and Below. We are intended to hold Love in the balance – in our Relationships (South), as we face an Unknown Journey (West), in our application of Divine Wisdom (North), and in the Light of Divine Inspiration (East.)
In the 4th Hour of Light, we step back to take another look at the Intention we’ve chosen. Growing the corn, the Maya surveyed the field to define the work of the day for an approach or a strategy. On Tone 4, we set priorities. What places in our Life are in need of more Love and More Faith for Believing? Who and what do we need to forgive, to clear the path for our own Faith to Believe in the goodness of the Whole? Where can we add a breath of Divine Wisdom? How can we turn again to Remember, a Holy LIGHT turned us to a Dream?
Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. Residing in the North, IK holds the Element of Air for a Divine Dissemination of Truth and Wisdom. The glyph illustrates the portals carved in stone in the shape of “T.” “Te” is held by the Maya as the Sacred Word of Creation – a breath intended to create Sound. The Breath of Wind holds the Truth and Wisdom that WILL Be.
The Element of Air relates to our faculties of Consciousness and Life. Our Life depends on the very first and next breath. We can’t hold our breath very long. A Divine Creator holds the Authority for every breath. Sacred Breath is a collaborative breath we take on Purpose to draw Divine Wisdom and Light.
We bring our Heart and Mind into balance through the Consciousness of our Breath. Breathing on Purpose is our own Gift of Love to the Spirit Above and Body Below.
The Wind holds the Power to Change our Mind. The Elders said to Listen to the Wind as the Voice of God. We will know the difference when we feel a gentle breeze, or when a gust pushes us in another direction. Stop when you hear or feel the Wind. What were you thinking? We are as Close to the Divine Wisdom as our very next breath. One Divine Thought can change our whole perspective.
Wind/IK can change the landscape of our thoughts as an Act of God to an established order that forces us to think in a new way. It’s always important to Choose what we think, lest we forget and trail along with thoughts of worldly fears and illusions. Breath shares the Power to Direct our own thoughts. Wind/IK reminds us think before we speak.
Today we can see the Light of Divine Choices we can make. We know our state-of-mind influences how well we operate. This is a day to Listen to the Wind of God Above, and the Human thoughts spoken below. An Intention to Listen and Learn is a breath for a Divine Life. We can use the Truth of Polarity to make a major adjustment to silence our thoughts. An intention of silence, doesn’t mean we won’t speak. It means we won’t speak unless we have something important to say. Silence will help us Listen without turning away from the message to think of our own reply.
LOVE is being Seen and Acknowledge. Nothing speaks Love louder to another Human Being than someone who is willing to listen. It doesn’t matter whether we agree. We don’t really expect everyone else to see things exactly the same. We just want to know that someone will hear us out. Humans share the truth as we see it in our Place and Time. We can remember how our Truth Changes. What we truly believe is a Matter of Time. ALL our Truth in the Moment is a Way toward our own Higher Truth. The Divine Truth WILL BE. If we haven’t learned it yet, we will be Divinely guided when it’s Our Time to Know.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Whirlwind, the Maya god Huracan. The Truth lies in the Eye of the Storm, a Center of perfect Peace beyond Human understanding.
The Whirlwind is the 13th Dancer, that leads the 12 of Humanity Below. Our life is the Sacred Dance invested by our blood, sweat, and tears. Divine Wisdom follows after we think about the experience. The Elders told us to “hold our power.” We weren’t to speak about the Sacred Ceremony of the Sun/Moon Dance for 3 months. We define an experience before we understand, giving solid form that defines boundaries and parameters. As much as we would like to share a Spiritual Experience, it’s OUR Wisdom to Know as Our experience.
“All is silent and calm. Hushed and empty is the womb of the sky. THESE, then, are the first words, the first speech. There is not yet one person, one animal, bird, fish, crab, tree, rock, hollow, canyon, meadow, or forest. All alone the sky exists. The face of the earth has not yet appeared. Alone lies the expanse of the sea, along with the womb of all the sky. There is not yet anything gathered together. All is at rest. Nothing stirs. All is languid, at rest in the sky. There is not yet anything standing erect. Only the expanse of the water, only the tranquil sea lies alone. There is not yet anything that might exist. All lies placid and silent in the darkness, in the night. All alone are the Framer and the Shaper, Sovereign and Quetzal Serpent, They Who Have Borne Children and They Who Have Begotten Sons. Luminous they are in the water, wrapped in quetzal feathers and cotinga feathers. Thus they are called Quetzal Serpent. In their essence, they are great sages, great possessors of knowledge. Thus surely there is the sky. There is also Heart of Sky, which is said to be the name of the god.” (Huracán) The Popol Vuh, pg. 56-57 (Christenson)
It’s Human Nature to WANT someone to see our Divine Inspiration. The Intention of our Divine Nature is to apply it to see the Light in another. We aren’t meant to “be the light” when it comes to Divine Wisdom. Our Highest Joy of transformation is to know we were capable to hear a Divine Truth. We are ALL meant to understand through our own experience to maintain the Balance of Harmony and Equity. Our thoughts can be divinely shifted by very small thoughts and synchronicity, no one else COULD understand. We can lose the wind from our sails when someone can’t see what we are still holding Faith to Believe. We are called to wait until our Truth Makes Sense and there’s a Divine reason to share.
To all my relations, may we remember the One who Sees and Acknowledges us, One who Knows all our Hopes and Dreams. May we allow Divine Time for contemplation so our Truth can take hold.
May we seek first to listen instead of being heard so we will hear the Whole Truth held by one in another Time and Place. Even when we disagree, we Honor the Human Being, sharing their Truth. When we “really need to know” we’ll Love the Truth, and Remember.
May we cherish the Gift of Consciousness as our Power to Conceive the Wisdom of the Truth. May we remember the Joys of our own Divine Revelations, and Honor the Truth that is meant to be known by ALL as their own Revelation. Reaching and Knowing is our Divine Dance of Life. The 13th Dancer Above will lead the Whole and each One to their Place in Time.
May we listen to the Wind to be Divinely guided from Above… and THINK about it. May we listen to one another… and THINK about it. THINKING will reveal our own Divine Truth that no one else even needs to know. If we focused on the Intention to Love, we won’t have to speak. Another Heart Will Know when they are Seen and Acknowledged when we listen.
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)
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.
Wind/IK: Breath of Spirit, breath of life. Winds embody the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. Dreamers and planners with powerful imaginations, Wind persons make great orators and they spread the word of spiritual inspiration as it is carried by the wind. Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change. As the wind, these persons are extremely changeable and adaptable. They may appear inconsistent or fickle to others. Wind can be destructive to self and others by putting on airs. When Winds strut and boast, expanding on facts and accomplishments, they are building the dark clouds of trouble that may become hurricanes.
Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA: Whirlwind’s symbol is a double spiral helix in rising smoke. Wind brings energy for an Inquiring mind, learning and wisdom. In Cherokee, the constellations are represented by 12 birds (dancers), the 13th bird is the Whirlwind, the lead dancer. This reflects the whirling of life. Wind is the breath of the Universe (matching the Mayan symbol) channel of communication and carries the Sacred Smoke to the Great Spirit (Source- Hunab Ku in Mayan); matches the pulse of the breath of the Cosmos.
