THE TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN: GIFTS OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 is a day of Empowerment. As the center of the cube, Tone 5 is an organizing Force that manages resources and application. An Inherent thought of Creation is to gather the tools and resources that will be needed before we ever begin. Tone 5 raises the Truth of Possibility for Human to believe “I Can. I have everything I need to create.”
Offering/MULUC guides a way of Atonement with the thoughts of a Supreme Creator. The glyph illustrates a single drop of water raised up from the whole to be Seen and Acknowledged by the One Above. MULUC marks a day for Giving Back and Paying Forward.
The Elders said that when we bring an Offering, it should represent the value of the Blessing we expect to receive. The only way to know what is worthy is to Count our Blessings. Offering/MULUC guides a Sacred Exchange of Loving Back and Forth. When we Know the Unconditional Love held in the Mind of the Creator, we will know Love in the Overflow. When the single-drop of our own Spirit is rejoined with the One Below, the Love we FEEL will ripple through the whole.
MULUC is a symbol of the Moon, our Emotions, and Water Everywhere from the Cosmos to our own Tears. Water holds the Ether of our Spirit. All Water is Holy, holding the Light and Substance of Life. This is a Day to Honor our Feelings and the Feelings of the Whole. Feelings express the True Condition of our Heart. When we can’t find the words to explain a Truth that can only be known in our own Time and Place, we can share Feelings that are Common, given in Harmony and Equity for every Time and Place.
Though MULUC is a symbol of Water, the Day Sign holds the Element of Fire. Together they express the Power of Holy Water and the Blessing of Living Light. MULUC is a symbol of the “Christ Spirit,” the archetype of the “Wounded Healer” that sacrifices itself to Feel the Truth on behalf of the Whole. Bearing the wounds as a Human Sacrifice the Sacred Exchange is a Gift of Compassionate Love. We can always be the One that Understands for the Whole, when we are Willing to Feel for one another.
Residing in the East, MULUC offers a Light of Divine Inspiration. MULUC can raise our Passion through a Fire that burns within on behalf of the Whole.
CIMI offered the Sign of a Major Life Change in progress. We can see that ALL our Feelings are up in the Air. Meanwhile, the experiences claimed as the “truth” by the whole of Humanity couldn’t be farther apart… beyond any Human Understanding. It’s easy to wonder how we could ever be drawn back together again.
Our Feelings are a Divine Gift that reach far beyond our spoken thoughts. Feelings are a language that can always be understood from One Human Heart to another, when at least One is Willing to be the One who accepts the Blame for the Whole and calls on a Power Above for the Blessing of Forgiveness on behalf of the Whole.
We are no better and no worse than the one we may define as “the other.” That is our greatest challenge of Truth. It’s so hard to forgive when we assign the blame outside of our Self. Forgiveness is the ONLY Key to the Kingdom. A Divine Savior spoke the Truth the best, “Father Forgiven them. They know not what they do.”
Biblical stories of Humanity compare us to the Sheep. A farmer once brought a lamb to Sunday School to share their ways. Sheep are very emotional and fearful of change and disruption. To be lost or left alone unattended is a grave threat to their well-being because of their emotions. They are at peace when they are in unity with the pack. They find comfort in going along. Sheep can remind us how uncomfortable the chaos of change can be for Human Beings, and fears we hold when the future is Unknown. Those that are lost are the ones that believe there’s no way to ever find a way back “home.” Human commits its greatest injustices when all our hope is gone. Our most unforgivable acts express the condition of the heart in the greatest need of Compassionate Love, Tolerance, and Understanding.
To all my relations, may we kneel in Humility at an altar within, counting our Blessings of Unconditional Love. May we give thanks that Both Sides are promised Love in Harmony and Equity without any conditions. May we see Both Sides as Divine in the eyes of God, both in need of the Comfort and Peace of Compassionate Love and a Truth of Forgiveness.
May we give thanks for Feelings, a language that is understood between all the Hearts of Humanity. May we offer our Self to Feel the Truth on behalf of others who are afraid to See or Acknowledge that they are One with the Broken Whole of Humanity. May we give thanks that God is the Highest Authority of ALL things and can use ALL our Feelings to tie the binds that only appear to be broken.
May we walk in the sandals of Peace and Love holding the Highest Intention to Forgive, remembering that so have we forgotten to Love, and so have we blamed another when we were afraid to see the darkness within our self. May we kneel in gratitude to the One Above who would never divide us as the “good” or the “bad.” May we kneel to the Only One who sees the Truth that Some are afraid they may never know the Truth of Love. May we honor Water everywhere and give thanks that we are One AND the Whole. Where Love and Understanding are needed, may we claim the Power of a Savior who DOES KNOW, and volunteers to share what was Intended for the Whole.
For every burden that weighs on our Heart, may we sacrifice our Self to the Feelings that God can use to draw us back together as the One and the Whole. May we bear the pain for a Divine Meaning and Purpose, Forgiving as our Offering to the One whose Love shines for all and for us, even as we walked through the darkness.
in lak’ech, i am another you

5 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
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.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purification. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
