THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN: A MIGRATION OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 3 is an Intention of Movement. On Tone 2 we consider an Intention of Creation. We are inspired to create a Divine Life on Mother Earth. Looking at past we imagine how we could change the future to create the Life of our Dreams. If we only saw our limitations on Tone 2, we tried to imagine what habits we need to fix. If we imagined the future of our Dreams, we were trying to figure out how WE would get there.
On Tone 3 we wake up to something completely different. In the Light of a new day, we wake to new possibilities as the Answer to our Prayer. 3 is the Number of Trinity. It takes 2 to create the 3. A Divine Creator is the One that will always be. A 2 always holds the potential to be a 3, when 2 are aligned as the 1.
Storm/CAUAC and Flint/ETZNAB are both perspectives of polarities. One is static energy and the other is a dynamic force of electromagnetic attraction. Storm/CAUAC offers a Renewal and Restoration, like Lightning shares the gift of Nitrogen with Mother Earth. CAUAC can recharge our resources of Spirit. CAUAC holds the Force of “lightning in the blood.” CAUAC is a gift to our heart.
CAUAC resides in the West, the direction of the Unknown, the Unseen, and the Darkness of ALL Possibility. Holding the Element of Water, we receive the Blessing from Above. The glyph illustrates the path created by Lightning to the positive particles of Earth reaching toward the Light. CAUAC ignites our Hopes and Dreams. “Lightning in the Blood” is the the Sixth Sense of the Heart.
Movement is a sign of Life. Movement creates Time for a dynamic experience of the Truth. Today we are inspired to Move by a Divine Light of Trinity. Lightning breaks through brighter and hotter than the surface of the Sun, beaming shockwaves in all directions. (How things work.)
Even the Polarity of 2 extremes holds the potential for Trinity. The Maya are credited with the discovery of zero. The axis mundi is the zero-point of the Tree of Life. In perfect Balance at the Center we see the Truth of All things as they really are. From the macro to the micro, all things are designed to Move in an orbit around a central force of Life.
Our Heart is moved by 3 CAUAC. Movement or the dissemination of a spoken dream brings a New Vibration to Life. The Tone and Frequency are established by our Intention and carry through to the end. We create the Sound of Harmony with the Universe when Love is the Reason. CAUAC can Move us through the Heart for a Divine Cause. We create an end from the beginning. Intentions offer a way to move by Spirit with something to Remember.
We are Moved by CABAN to be carried by the Forces of Divine Nature. It’s a Common thought to head for home when we see a storm on the horizon. “Home” is the Sanctuary where we hold the authority to close the door. From a Sanctuary within, we feel safe to be who we are.
CAUAC is the midwife that delivers, opening the way for a New Life to reach through the darkness to the Light. CAUAC restores the sense of Possibility we knew when we were children. Lightning is a Wonder of the World. It’s a wonder how such a display can ever be forgotten in the background. Through a restoration of Spirit, we might see our “Life Before” the same way.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Redbird, a Sign of Lightning energy in the Sky. Red is the color of Fire that always catches our attention in the Moment. The Aztec Day Sign is Quiahuitl (Rain), a day of unexpected fortunes of fate. Quiahuitl is governed by Tonatiuh, the same Sun God that the K’iche Maya call K’inich Ahau, at the center of the Ollin (Caban). K’inich Ahau is the Brightest manifestatio of the Sun that is a Flash of Light that heralds a beginning. It is the fierce face of an Almighty Creator that commands what WILL BE from the beginning. It’s a bad day to think about Human business and a good day for exploring, traveling, and learning something new.
Earth/CABAN is guiding us to follow what Mother Earth leads us to do. She’s a Divine Mother that would only lead us in the right direction. Through the Gift of CAUAC, we will FEEL the influence of our Mother’s Love. SHE can guide the Movement of our Divine Life. She holds the Heart of Compassion to FEEL the Dreams in our Heart. To follow our Mother, we can Love every Time and Place. Like the Jaguar’s invisible footprints that lead us to the Light, we can look down and hold Faith that we’re exactly where she wants us to be to Know the Truth. When our Human Nature and Divine Nature are aligned as One, we’ll be Moved by Divine Trinity.
The Most Important thing to be Vigilantly Conscious of as we take our first step is the REASON why we move. If you are anything like me, I chose a path of Spirit to KNOW a Divine Communion and my own Gifts of Spirit. What a Divine Life it would be to Wholly Believe in a Divine Communion, and to experience it as a tangible Human Truth. How happy we would all be, if we held a Divine Power to make our Dreams come true. Divine Trinity is a Power and Force beyond all Human understanding. Power is always subject to corruption by our Human Ego. CABAN is the Mother that raises us up with the Divine Wisdom to hold it.
The shaman’s path is a solo journey. The pyramid climb is led by the Jaguar. I’ve heard it said that it can be a dangerous way because we walk alone. To hold the Power requires Vigilant Consciousness to our own “rules of the game” that are guided by a Divine Discernment of Truth from within. The Ego has to be burned away, not to be overcome by Human’s attraction to Power. My perspective about Spiritual Gifts has been turned around. The odds are good we don’t have the Wisdom to hold them, without being inclined to use them for a Human end. Today I see the Highest Use for them is Knowing we can Know. A Dream we always wanted is a Divine Offering we can bring to the altar of our Sanctuary. We can believe a Supreme Creator had a Divine Meaning and Purpose for all our gifts. We can explore them, but leave them in the hands of the Creator to only be used for a Divine Purpose.
At the zero point, we don’t have an opinion one way or another. Following where Mother Earth leads us, and remembering we’re always in the perfect Time and Place, if it doesn’t LOOK like a Divine Time and Place – there must be something Unseen that could make it add up to the Truth of the Whole. We are guided by a Divine Agency in the 8th uinal. A Legion of Light is guiding our way and sharing the way to carry out the journey to the Divine Justice of Knowing the Wisdom of our own Experience.
We can always stand in our Integrity when we Give Back and Pay Forward every blessing as a Sacred Exchange. By Human Nature we want to see things BIG. Yet in the Mirror’s reflection Above the small things mean the most. In the Balance we are the all-in-one reflection of the Creator’s Light, broken apart in our own rainbow of colors. Above, there is One Light – the Truth of Unconditional Love. Our Unbridled Freedom must be grounded on Earth. To uphold a Gift of Freedom for the Whole, Divine Love is a compromise for the Good of the Whole.
The Elders always reminded us to call upon Divinity that upholds the Highest Blessing for the Whole. They also shared the wisdom of “holding our power.” It takes Time to know the Whole Meaning of a Spiritual Experience. It can lose it’s power to move us Higher when someone else can’t see it the same way. We’ll know when it’s ready to be shared… when it’s Truth that can stand on its own. Some gifts are ours alone to have and hold, and left as a treasure for someone else to find in their Time and Place.
To all my relations, may we look for the Unseen Divinity of Life. Like the Obsidian Mirror or the crystal ball, when we hold no expectations for what we’ll see, the “nothing” can reveal an unexpected Truth. Our Sanctuary is the zero point where we Know Love and it doesn’t matter what’s going on outside. The illusions of the world can spin by on the parameter of our experience, because the Divine Truth lies within.
May we hold an Intention to move through our Life like we’re always in the Right Place at the Right Time. May we remember all the Powers of the Universe and the Earth’s perpetual journey around the Sun are Divine Influences that determine EXACTLY where we are. May we remember that 2 can also add up to the 3 of Divine Trinity – to manifest something Greater than the Sum of the Parts of the Whole. If there is a Trinity Above and a Trinity Below, Loving the same Time and Place, we manifest the Power of the 9 that manifests the Holy, Holy, Holy.
May we Give Thanks for a Light of Truth brighter hotter than the Sun that can reach down through the chaos of Human polarity to claim the Light of the Whole and weld it all back together as One.
in lak’ech, I am another you

3 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird /TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak.

How is your Spiritual path today?
I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!
SYNCHRONICITY OF TIME:
This was the day in 2015 when I was inspired by Minisa (1 Wind/IK) to plan a pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam for the Day of the Dead. I was sure that traveling to the Yucatan was an impossible dream, but the wind gave me a push. I turned to the Tzolk’in to look up the dates. October 31, 2015 was Ian Xel Lungold’s Mayan birthday, 12 Sun/AHAU, 13 years from his passing. I was afraid, but I was called to go for Ian (founder of MayanMajix.com and the leader of my path). Among his personal writings on MayanMajix.com was his final message a dying dream. Ian’s last Dream was to serve among the Legions of Light on our behalf from the “otherside.” I was afraid to go, but I had to go. I was called to go.
YOUR story is written on the calendar. If you’ve never kept a daily journal, you can start by journaling the days of your own spiritual experiences. But, do it all in one place. On the second round of the Tzolk’in you’ll find yourself in the same place or state of mind. You can also use the calendar to see it in other important times of your life. Time tells the Truth and ALL YOUR Time has a meaning and purpose to be in the right place at the right time.
