THE TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN: GIFTS OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 13 marks an Ascension to Higher Consciousness. From Higher Ground we conceive the Truth of a Transformation that changes our perception of the future. Every Ascension is an Initiation to a New and Higher Consciousness of being. Like a grand commencement, we see a new life just ahead. We’re inspired to try again or to try something new.
13 is the number of theurgy, the ability through our rituals and sacred ceremonies to call upon a Divine Agency to Intervene in Human affairs. 13 marks the Truth of Answered Prayers. Every transformation is carried out by a Divine Agency as the Divine Justice for Human’s Choice to hold Faith in a Divine Communion.
Ascension is a Celebration of Knowing Truth that compels a new way of Living.
Earth/CABAN is a symbol of Mother Earth and her Movement that creates the Time of our Life. Everything Human knows, we learned from Mother Earth. From a Higher Perspective we can see that each day we are transformed by the Light and the Seasons of every orbit. It’s hard to see the incremental changes from one day to another. The only way to reach the Truth of our own Transformation is to keep moving on.
The Cherokee sign of the Heron is a nahaul of perpetual movement. Living a Life of migration, the Heron is always moving toward the next field of Greater Abundance. The Aztec Ollin is the day Sign that simply means movement. Illustrated as the symbol at the center of the stone calendar, the Ollin marks 20 Divine Times and Places of Knowing. Days marked by the Ollin are said to be a Time when we can see what we are becoming. On 13 Earth/CABAN we are raised to the Truth that a Seed of Divine Design will always reach its end when human chooses to hold Faith in the Power of Love.
The Aztec say it’s an “unlucky” day to just go along with the world, and a “very lucky” day to Live with all our Heart. CABAN holds the Element of Fire, like the fire that burns in the Heart of the Mother. Today we are Conscious of the Power of Compassionate Love and the way it will always lead to Harmony and Equity.
The glyph illustrates Human’s faculties of Divine Consciousness as the means to Know the Truth of The Creation. The straight line represents Human’s linear thoughts of Reason, a material reality. The wavy line represents our imagination. The rising circles represent Human’s ability to apply an exponential factor of Divinity. A Divine Trinity of thoughts will always lead us to see the possibilities beyond human’s limitation – by the Truth of Answered Prayers. CABAN defines the way to conceive a Divine Meaning and Purpose for our Life as a Divine Illumination that is carried out over Time. Earth/CABAN is the clarion call to keep moving, through the darkness and the light, to reach the Truth of Transformation we will Know is True. 13 Earth/CABAN marks a Time and Place of Knowing that every step is leading us forward.
13 CABAN is a Day of Knowing we Know how to navigate the Darkness and the Light. We have to use the Gift of Consciousness to think more than once to know the Truth. Our first thought of discernment will always be limited to Human’s first impression. As a being of duality, our first thoughts are a simple comparison of “bad” or “good,” tied to Human’s primary concern of survival. Our second thought is to imagine the possibilities, based on our first impression. Raised to maturity we hold the Wisdom of our own Experience to think again. We can choose to imagine the possibilities beyond Human limitations by a Divine Provision of Unconditional Love.
CABAN lies in the East, the place of Light, Life, and Happiness. Today a Divine Inspiration is taken to our Heart. An Intention to Create Love for the Whole – to Love as the Creator Loves – is a Prayer that will always be answered by a Higher Power of Love. We were created to Love and to Witness the Beauty of God’s Love in the all-around. We will always reach our Divine Destiny, when we “Know Thyself, and to thine own Self be True.” The Truth was written in our Seed.
Today we can claim the Power of Divine Possibilities and a reason to Keep moving on, choosing what our Heart leads us to do. Our Consciousness is Awakened to the Truth that there is a Light ahead that will prove that every dark night will reach its ending. We will know the Light is always shining in the future. We can hold Faith in the Darkness when we believe in the Light. It’s just a matter of Time.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for the Times and Place when the Divine Truth is Known in its Highest Light. May we see who we are, One in the Whole Creation, a Light that shines in the Universe. May we see the Truth of the Whole Beauty that is Balanced through the perpetual movement of Time. May we remember we’re never stuck in one place. We’re always moving on toward the Light of a New Day.
May we run to an altar to share the Truth of the Light that is Known in this Time and Place. May we remember the Gift we were given to always know the Divine Truth is a Choice to think more than once, and to hold the Faith to imagine the possibilities of Answered Prayers. May we give thanks that there are No Exceptions to the Creator’s Unconditional Love. The Truth that EVERYONE is included in Harmony and Equity is the Promise that we never have to question whether we are “enough” or “worthy.” We only have to Choose the Faith to Believe for the Truth to be known to our Heart.
God’s Love is the Answer to all our Prayers and the Truth a Supreme Creator always wanted us to Know. May we Live our Life for the Whole, celebrating the Love that was created through a Circle of Life for ALL Time. May we give thanks for Mother Earth and the Beauty that carries us in her arms through the Universe. May we draw close and tell her we Remember.
in lak’ech, i am another you

RIDING THE MILKY WAY: An astronomer in Tucson shared the way to ride the Milky Way. Earth resides about 2/3rds from the center of the Milky Way galaxy at the front of one of its spinning spiral arms. When we see the Milky Way, we are only seeing the spiral arm that is in front of Mother Earth. If you lean slightly into it, it’s easier to see that you are standing on Mother Earth riding the Milky Way.
21 DAYS OF GRATITUDE: DAY 4
I’m grateful for Time and Places where the Truth is Known in our Heart.

13 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.
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.
