THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. Tone 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms. The area of a cube is defined by it’s boundaries and parameters.
In the Center of our Circle is a Square that defines 4 directions of experience in our Life. Tone 4 guides us to define the boundaries of thought to uphold the Faith to Believe.
In the 4th hour of Light, the Maya reached the field of corn. They shared the same thought to survey the landscape. Tone 4 reflects the same thoughts we hold when we arrive at work and see our desk. We conceive “the work” that lies ahead.
Our “work” is to move Faith to Believing in the end. Human dreams the “Meaning of Life,” when we direct the course of our thoughts. The Elders called it “tracking the mind.” When you discover Truth you didn’t realize you knew, curiosity will draw you to turn within for the next thing you need to know. We can define the boundaries of thoughts aimed toward believing.
Serpent/CHICCHAN is the DIVINE SOURCE of the Spark within that brings a Seed to Life. CHICCHAN symbolizes the Feathered Serpent, Kulkulkan/Quezalcoatl, the Light that descends from Above along the stairs of the calendar pyramid. CHICCHAN “lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.”
CHICCHAN holds the Element of Fire that burns away matter to leave only the Truth of Pure Spirit. Fire holds the power of transmutation. When thoughts of our Ego are burned away, we become the “hollow bone.” As light as a feather, we’ll see the Truth from the other side. The feathers, fringe, and ribbon on the Sacred Dance Costume, are the antennae, catching Light in the Air.
GLOBAL BURNER DAY:
The Global Burner at the Center of each season, releases old issues to the Sacred Fires for the Blessing of Change. Old truth that no longer serves the purpose is burned away. We’re clearing a field where new dreams will be planted. On Global Burner Day the Mayan priest builds the Sacred Fire where prayers will be offered for the Whole. The Intention is a restoration of Right Relationship. 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN stabilizes a Divine Intention of Knowing. The Dragon is a symbol of Divine Illumination. CHICCHAN grounds the Truth that we FEEL vibrations, the same way a snake “clearly sees” it’s prey.
We ascended from the trecena of Offering/MULUC with a Reason to Honor our Emotions as a Divine Human sacrifice. Willing to Feel, a Divine Agency will fulfill the Sacred Exchange with a Higher Truth of Love.
The smoke rising from the altars was a Sign to Remember. It’s Time to say our prayers. A Divine Communion will bend our heart toward forgiveness, so the past can rest in peace. 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN will ignite the Passion for a Dream, the FEELING of an end we’ll be drawn to follow.
In this round of the Tzolk’in, the Light of 4 CHICCHAN falls on the Haab date 8 K’ank’in. K’ank’in is a month associated with the Dog, the archetype of Unconditional Love. 8 is the Number of “Pure Spirit” and the Intention of “Justice” in Harmony and Equity.
CHICCHAN is a Divine Communication that grasps our Whole Heart. The experience is defined as the Kundalini energy that travels up our spine, leaving goosebumps, and raising hair as it reaches our Crown. We’re guided to pay attention to our Feelings, Intuition, and Gut Instincts. CHICCHAN resides in the East, the direction of the Sunrise. A new day will dawn when we believe our Feelings are the Truth.
The Wind/IK trecena is the Light of Divine Truth, thoughts of the Creator’s Dream that lingers in the Air. The Wind is a tangible experience of an “invisible presence.” Wind/IK is only half the story of a Divine Communion, Above and Below. Air is the Element that shares the Truth from thoughts of Consciousness. Fire moves us through a Feeling. CHICCHAN represents a Divine Communion that’s shared directly with our Heart.
Residing in the East, we will FEEL the Truth of a New Beginning. We will FEEL the whole way to a Divine Ending. When our Heart and Mind have imagined the Divine End together, a Divine Eye will open – perfectly aligned to see the End as “meant to be.”
We think we have to conjure our Divine Gifts. On CHICCHAN, when we feel those feelings again, we’ll hold a little spark to ask what it means. The Light of CHICCHAN can prove that Divine Experiences are shared in Harmony and Equity. Imagine what other experiences of Divine Meaning and Purpose must be hidden in the darkness of Human’s unconscious experience of Life.
Guided by Serpent/CHICCHAN we can shed our own skin to feel the Love that is our Force of Life. We buried Truth in our past, a little deeper every time it hurt to feel. Through CHICCHAN we’ll know the Truth of the Feelings shared, Above and Below. When we Feel the Creator in our Body and Soul, we’ll gladly shed our skin to Feel the Whole Experience of our Life. The Wisdom of every experience is the way it made us Feel. With new, more sensitive skin, we’ll feel how much it hurts to “go along” when we were headed in another direction. We’ll feel the pain of giving up a Dream, before we let our Faith slip away.
The Power of our Divine Way is in the Remembering a Power Above. We don’t have to know every step to the end when we Know a Light will guide us there. We can manifest the Truth of Divine Power when we put 2+2 together, a Light Above knows the Truth and can reach down to us exactly when we REALLY need to know. CHICCHAN is a feeling that comes along with a Revelation of Truth. CHICCHAN is the “chemistry” of Love we WANT to Feel to Believe that Love is True. CHICCHAN shares the Quickening of Spirit.
A Divine Truth about all our Spiritual Gifts is that they are always in perfect working order, even when we were unconscious. Our Spirit stored the memories so we can recall the Truth. With the Gift to “see them clearly” that the Dragon always brings, we’ll realize our own Wisdom of the Truth. We don’t have to learn a thing to claim our Divine Gifts. We’ve been learning all along. Divine Truth is never hidden from our Heart and Soul. We can grasp the Truth we are Being Changed.
Another Feeling of CHICCHAN is the way a snake feels when they are backed into a corner. Nothing will stand in the way of a Divine Intention – the Sacred Right of Choice. The Divine Mother with the claws, reflects Love that strikes out of a corner when it comes to Life or Death. You might recall an experience of CHICCHAN when you struck out for the Truth to set things straight. It didn’t even feel like a choice. You were blurting out the Truth like you never had a choice. CHICCHAN is a Power to Move us for our own Divine Good. That may be especially true on 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN when we’re laying the boundaries for OUR Life that’s OUR Choice.
We can build a solid foundation for the Divine Journey ahead. We don’t have to stop and think what to do or figure it out whenever it’s a matter of Life or Death to the Dream we Love. We won’t have to conjure Faith to do what we’re Divinely intended to do. God will MOVE us.
CHICCHAN can Light a Fuse of our own Peace and Happiness when we realize we don’t have to figure out the BIG DEALS beyond our understanding. One Human wasn’t intended to carry the weight of the whole world, and neither was Humanity – we don’t have to carry any weight at all, suspended in perfect balance. The WAY to the Divine End is as simple as Mother Earth showed us how to do. Just keep moving through the experience of our Life, and smell the roses while we’re on the way. In the Life of our Dreams, we live in a Garden of Eden. It’s the Truth. CHICCHAN is the Power to FEEL it.
Serpent/CHICCHAN marks a day to pay attention to our own gut instincts. Pay attention if you strike out of a corner. CHICCHAN magnifies the power of our Intuition. Follow what you are Divinely Guided to do and you will Know it’s what you were meant to do. If you just feel like turning another way, follow. CHICCHAN is an aspect of the Supreme Creator that wants to have “chemistry” with us – to prove we’re in the same corner.
To all my relations, to make our Highest Discernment of Truth for the Faith to Stand, may we ask the Divine Questions FIRST. May we claim the Truth Above is more important than what Human thinks we are seeing from a mind of Reason. May we claim from the start a Dream too beautiful for us to even imagine. Our Heart can tell us if its True.
ALL THINGS were balanced between the Above and the Below. The Spark we were given is that little bit of Hope that will always live in our Heart. Hope had to be a Feeling known Above to be manifested below. May we imagine a Divine Truth that the Supreme Creator shared a little piece of Heart. The little bit of Hope between us, is the dream to reach the end together. While we wait, a Divine Consciousness waits to Feel “Love at first sight,” in Our Time and Place.
May we claim the Divine Beauty of our little piece of the Creator’s heart and soul.
May we give thanks for the Power of God’s Loving touch.
in lak’ech, i am another you

HONORING THE ELEMENT OF FIRE
We Honor the Fire when we Consciously give it a Life. The Fire Keeper dedicated Time to the Fire from its beginning to end. They watched for the direction that the first log fell and shared the truth. We were invited to bring tangible objects for a blessing – laying them on the nearby altar. Some brought crystals and sacred objects. Others placed their shoes or glasses. Beings of physicality were offered a choice of something tangible we could have and hold to remember.
RAISING SPIRITUAL SENSES: The Creator’s Fire is electric. We can prepare our heart and mind as the conduit with every glass of pure water. The Endocrine system is a network communication system that balances the body. They respond to Intentions of Light. Place you right hand at the center of your breastbone, love it and offer it the Sacred Breath. Place both hands over your lower abdomen and repeat, imagining a Sacred Breath Out. Then both hands at the center above the navel, loving with an easy natural breath. We can create the passion for taking care of our self. The smallest effort can manifest the Reason when we realize an exponential effect. ALL Water is Holy. We are blessed by one conscious drink of it.

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.
