THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT: GATHERING THE LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“Who are you? What do you want?”
Tone 10 raises the Intention of Manifestation. What we’ve focused on as the Dream of our Intention becomes REAL on Tone 10. We might all agree that Manifestation appears to be the hardest step. Tone 10 presents a challenge. To manifest the Dream, we have to claim it’s True.
We’ve been Dreaming about the Power of Love that we were given to manifest anything our Heart Desires. It can be a monumental challenge when the End of the Dream still lies in the future. We’ve been given the Truth for the Leap of Faith, and the Choice is now up to us to claim that prayers for Love will always receive the Sacred Exchange.
Over the journey of the Tzolk’in round we’ve been raised to Higher Truth of the Divine Possibility that there IS One who Loves us without condition, with the Power to Create Everything. Today we are claiming the Truth we can believe. A New Seed will carry on where we left off and a new life begins. It’s not so hard to claim we know more now than we did before. Knowing how ALL the Truth of our experience can be drawn together to see in new ways, it’s now a Choice to See the Truth that we are Becoming. We will be something greater than we can see today.
A loving Creator hopes we’ll claim our Highest Truth. And, a Creator that loves, knows that what we can’t see only means we’ll get to witness the Beauty together again, and we’ll always see Love in brand new ways.
10 Earth/CABAN symbolizes the Meaning of Life known through Movement that created Time. The Elders say that Mother Earth is the Creator’s first Enduring, Living Gift, the First Offering of Life to Human Beings. Everything that’s known about Life and the Universe, we learned through her. We manifest a Beautiful Life when we see that she is the Living Illustration of a Creator’s Love. The Creator’s Signature of Love is Beauty as far as the eye can see, up close, or far away.
Through Mother Earth we can see what we are becoming. She offers the Whole of Life to See the Truth that a “thing of Beauty” is the end that multiplies the blessing into a Divine Harvest. Today, the beauty we see in the world is a Truth we can claim for our Self. We Know the Most Beautiful expression of Life. Today we can feel the Truth that “Love WILL Create the Beauty” of our Dreams.
The Aztec sign is the Ollin, the symbol of Movement that is positioned at the center of the stone calendar. The Cherokee Day Sign is the Heron, a nahaul of perpetual migration.
Movement is the Sign of Life. Movement and Breath create Sound and Vibration. The Tone and Frequency of every vibration is established by the REASON we Move. We can FEEL the Vibration of Spirit. We were given the Gifts to FEEL in many ways. Every Human Sense engages a feeling. The Discernment of Feelings is a Divine Gift to Feel the Truth of Love. A Creator of Divine Authority holds the Power to engage our Feelings to Know.
The glyph illustrates the three Human faculties for Divine Discernment. The straight line represents Human’s mind of “linear” reason. Our First thoughts to discern the truth of anything comes from our “objective consciousness.” It’s the first assessment “what is this?” The wavy line represents our Imagination, the second thought. First we try to figure out “what it is,” then we imagine the meaning and purpose. On the journey of Spirit, we’re trying to conceive the Unseen Truth of Love. It takes the Monkey/CHUEN’s sense of Humor to see most of it. Because, most of the time we’re not thinking, we’re just following the paces of yesterday and going with what is – without considering the power we hold to change things in every moment. The rising circles represent the 3rd and Divine Faculty of Thought. To know the Divine Meaning and purpose, we have to do something that doesn’t make sense to a mind of reason, and take a Leap toward something in thin Air. we have to consider the “impossible” that is “possible” under the Hand of a Divine Genius. That’s the Truth to save us when we claim it.
Our Divine Mother knew who and what we would be before we were born. Sharing a Divine Identity was the 1st priority for Life. The Maya included the Name of the “lord of the day” so the child would be known for a Divine Meaning and Purpose. The Ollin marks 20 Divine Places in Time. Days marked by Ollin hold the Time for Our Own Truth of Identity.
Knowing our own Name may have been the first Time we added 2+2. The first question at the beginning of every Life of Consciousness is “Who am I.” At the Beginning of Every Life, Time is given for the Divine Discernment of Identity.
The Earth is the Mother of Life. Through her we can see that the Reason for Life would be identified by Love. There was a Divine Provision by one that Loved to See us through our First Breath. We were identified by the Beauty of Every Living Thing.
Earth/CABAN holds the Element of Fire, a Power of Transmutation. A Force of Pure Energy can change matter into the Pure Energy of Light and Heat that Rises. The Unseen Channels that tie the binds of Spirit CAN be Seen in the double-helix of Smoke that carries our prayers to the One Above.
The Elders shared the tradition to Honor Semah with the Sacred Offering of Tobacco. The story goes that Semah was the Brave, who at the end of Life, chose to come back to carry the Smoke of our prayers, so the Unseen could be Seen Rising to the One.
Today we Fire the Seed. We can give it a Divine Meaning and Purpose by Name. Will we choose a Human Name? Or, do we hold enough Wisdom to share the Name, “The Scion?” Will we share a Dream for fame and fortune? Or will we pass on the Divine Wisdom of the Jaguar, to be an invisible Light that shines on the Beauty of Everything? What’s the TRUTH of OUR Highest Dream? If we KNOW the Truth our Heart Desires, wholly invested in the One, we could claim the end more beautiful than anything we’ve seen yet on Mother Earth… even more beautiful than the Signet swans. They are only the Beauty within the range of our Human vision to see. We KNOW the Truth of Beauty in the Universe.
WE WILL KNOW WHO WE ARE WHEN A DIVINE CREATOR CLAIMS WHO WE ARE, like the Mother swan who took the little one under her wing.
We were claimed before by the One that imagined the swans. All the Divine Ways of the Living were given for Human TO SEE. So, when we ask the Big Questions, “What’s the meaning of my life?” every Life shares a Meaning carried out by Love, to Live and Be Happy. We can claim the Divine Name, just wondering at the Beauty of it all. Why would we choose to invest Time, we KNOW is Sacred, dreaming of anything else?
Residing in the East, CABAN turns us to the Light for a New Beginning. A Name is the first question for a New Life. We Identify our Self by the arms that hold us and the Light that conceived our Beauty. Today we can see by the Light of the Universe and the Truth that Human knows. We were born of the Universe from a “Father Sky” and our Life is Sustained by a “Mother Earth,” for the Intention of Time. What wonders of thought were drawn out of thin Air to manifest a Living Witness… One that could hold Life in a physical body. The Life from One would multiply to the end of Time, so Beauty would hold it’s Divine Meaning and Purpose.
We don’t have to claim the Whole Truth we can never know. ALL WE EVER HAVE TO CLAIM is that we are something more Beautiful than just the Human Being. There is something more about us, Divine, for a Consciousness of Sense and Reason, abiding by our boundaries and parameters, making up rules as we go, then breaking them the farther we go. We can SEE that WE ARE ALWAYS MORE TOMORROW than we are today. We are Becoming and we have Always Been the Divine Consciousness of the Universe. “The Scion” is the Name given to the Witness of Endless Possibilities.
We were born to a Life of Migration. The Heron and the Wildebeests aren’t “running away” but Moving from their Heart toward the Dream, a Scent, of another Time and Place where water flows and grass grows and Life will be Abundance for the New Life that will be. The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix that rises to a New Life from the ashes of its past. Through Forgiveness, matter that didn’t matter was burned away. We have Higher Hopes and Aspirations for Life than resolving petty grievances. There’s LOVE and BEAUTY to witness, and the Power to Manifest the Truth that’s REAL in our Life.
Days marked by Ollin are Times we Know we are Becoming. The Aztec call it a very “unlucky day” to just go along. It’s the day to claim our Own Truth and to Move with ALL Our Heart. Ollin is a Clarion Call.
Our Heart will be called to RUN to an altar with the Offering. The Creator will be Seen and Acknowledged as the One of Highest Discernment. May we ask Forgiveness for the Seed and the Old Wisdom we shared that may not serve in another Time. May we ask a Divine Creator to Finish what we Can’t See.
A God of our Heart and a God of our Understanding can reach us. All we ever have to do to Grasp the Wisdom of Divine Genius is to See and Acknowledge a Universe of Expanding Beauty – and apply our own Common Sense. “The Witness” is the Divine Part of ALL OF THAT.
To all my relations, may we Give our Self to Life. May we use all the faculties we are given and employ every perspective we can to see the Truth that Love is a REAL POWER in the Universe. May we claim what Beauty we are to be a One with the Whole. We KNOW we came from the stars. May we ask the Divine Questions to Know what it Means.
May we Offer a Blessing to Mother Earth. May we claim what a Beauty she is, close up and far away. May we Count our Blessings that she was the One Given to Hold us in Her Arms.
in lak’ech, I am another you

Human’s Relationship with the Universe
The Human hand was the first astronomical instrument for measuring distance in the Universe. The Divine Truth of our relationship to the Universe is reflected in our Divine Design. The pinky finger is the smallest unit of measure of the “power of Human’s hand” (1 degree). 3 fingers are a “divine equivalent” of the weight that can be carried by one Human hand (5 Empowerment). The fist represents “human’s full grasp” (10 fingers). 15 degrees, symbolizes Divine Empowerment (5 x 3), a measure just beyond Human’s reach, yet still holding a power to grasp. 25 degrees (5 x 5) is the full reach beyond grasp, that we can still see.
The Moon isn’t the “right size” to fit perfectly for an eclipse. Universal Forces holds her in the Perfect Time and Place. In the Universal Language of Numbers, Circles tell a story. What identifies one orb in space from another is the substance that lies within.
The Hydrogen in our atmosphere is a product of the solar winds that penetrate our atmosphere. The Elders say we Breathe and are Breathed by the Creator. There was a Witness from the Beginning of TIme.

10 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
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 and perpetual motion, Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.
