THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT: GATHERING THE LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. Comprehension is a Divine Faculty of Human Consciousness. On Tone 12 all the disassociated pieces of our experience are drawn into a New and Meaningful Whole. A Truth makes sense of Whole like 2 + 2.
The most Divine Truth were the pieces of “everyday.” Separating the positive from the negative to collect them by their own kind, we see the Greatest Powers on either end. We needed to see the Truth on both ends of polarity. We had to face the darkness as far as we could go. When we realize a Divine Light was always behind us, and turn around, the Truth is SO Bright, the flash is all we could see.
Storm/CAUAC is the Lightning of the Storm that finds a path and breaks through to Create a Divine Experience for our Heart to Remember. We love to figure out a mystery. We were designed for it. Storm/CAUAC is the Light and Truth of Divine Love that claimed us where we were… reaching for the Power of Light to See and Know the Truth.
CAUAC shares the Unbridled Freedom To Be, and brings a Renewal and Regeneration for our Spirit. Just when we’ve discovered how little we really know about our Self and Life, a Divine Light Breaks with the Truth that can make sense of it all. CAUAC shares New Hope for the Future, through an experience we want to know again. Next Time we’ll wait with our eyes open to see more than a glimpse.
Mother Earth is the Source of EVERYTHING Human knows about The Creation. If we only use the faculties we were given, there’s a story in everything. When there’s a Lightning Storm we DO stare into the darkness. But we do it in an opposite way, looking at “nothing” for what we expect to see. We never know where the Light might break, so we look to the sky all around – straight ahead and through our peripheral vision. Vision was intended to be a multi-dimensional experience.
We find a path to the Creator’s Truth just like that. We won’t find it staring into the darkness imagining our worst fears. Or, our worst fears will be everything we see in the “nothing” of not Knowing. The experience is turned around by CAUAC. When we know a Light behind us is shining on something of Beauty, we engage the Divine Thoughts to see what is right in front of us – the blank page of ALL Possibility. Suddenly, we Love the darkness, like the Dog/OC of Unconditional Love. And we know we are the Master Artist, Monkey/CHUEN that can draw the Beauty of Divine Truth from all the Spiritual Tools we collected on the way. CAUAC shines the Light on the canvas of our Dreams, the Life we created while we were Living for something greater than our Self. We didn’t see what we were doing. We were looking somewhere else.
You’re lucky if you’re looking in the “right place” when the Lightning breaks. We see lots of pictures, though we didn’t see how many photos it took to capture the shot. We never see the Whole Story, how the Truth makes an experience more beautiful when you see how it happened. Like the Squirrel, Seeing, Acknowledging, and Loving the Flower before it takes it in to be part of its Life, the photographer took 500 photos to See that One Moment that told a Whole Story about the Squirrel.
What is Unseen, yet Seen is an Attraction Between Them. The Elders say that ALL Things want to be Seen and Acknowledged. All things were intended for Human to See and Know without any hard evidence. The Truth is revealed by Movements over Time. As Beautiful as One Moment can be, such Divine Truth is still only a slice of the Story.
We can spend so much Time trying to get a good photo of our Self, one that shares the best impression. It’s hard to find our own Beauty in a still photo, when our Beauty lies in our Expressions and the Ways we Move, and the Reasons we Move.
CAUAC resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown path to the Future. CAUAC shines the Light to See. Gathering all of our Divine Experiences together under the same Light, we see the Truth, how every experience drew us a little closer to knowing. By the Light of ALL our Divine Thoughts we can SEE and UNDERSTAND something Greater they were All about.
Whenever Human sees a “storm on the horizon” our first instinct is to run for home. By the Power of a Divine Attraction, we’re drawn to the Place we’re Intended to See the Divine Truth. “Home” is the Sanctuary within we share with the One Above. A Power that guides us moves us there through a Clarion Call of Divine Design. We remember a place where we can Always See the thoughts of a Divine Genius of Unconditional Love. We’ll Know that when we forget, the Divine One will know the way “home.”
CAUAC is the “midwife that delivers,” opening the way for a New Life to reach the Light. The journey was hard and the Time seemed so long. We didn’t know we were birthing our Divine Self from the beginning. We grew from Loving our Own Life, to Loving and Caring about the Lives of the Whole. We found Happiness in Love that was Unconditional for everyone else. It’s Time to Deliver the Whole Truth to the Light. There’s a Divine Truth we didn’t see, Truth that gave a Divine Meaning for every experience that drew us to the end.
12 is the symbol of Humanity, defining our Position (Road/EB) in Life. We are the 2nd Consciousness in the “lower place” that is guided by the Light/Truth of an Investment in the “higher one.” Through Comprehensions the way we see our Self can be “totally invested” in the Creator’s Love and Truth that can be seen through a Divine Perspective. We will Ascend to the Divine 13, the Truth of Answered Prayers, seeing the Prayer was BEING Answered from the Beginning.
Flint/ETZNAB was the Mirror to See our Self, and the “something” we couldn’t see, looking for darkness. We can realize we only see the darkness when darkness is what we are looking to see. The Truth is the Light WITH US. We might think about how we are “stopped in our tracks” by the Beauty of the Creator. If the Truth is that the Creator “stops us in our tracks” to SEE it, we could Remember that EVERY time we are “stopped in our tracks” – regardless of what we think we see, we were stopped by the Creator to See the Beauty. There’s always Beauty to See when the Reason for the Creation is Love.
When Life revolves around a Truth of Love at the Center, we can witness Time go by as one experience after another. The “illusion” of life in the world below is the only Time that matters is NOW. NOW never returns the Whole Truth without knowing what came before and after. If we were reading the True Story of our Life, we wouldn’t skip a page. We’d want to know how one thing led to another. We wouldn’t choose the “Reader’s Digest” version. If we knew we could Know, we’d want to know the REASONS for EVERYTHING.
In a Sanctuary we are One. For all the Beauty that Human life can offer, our One Dream is Belonging to someone we Love. We were drawn to the Light of a Sanctuary to be Claimed by The Highest One. The Light of the Truth, KNOWN as an Experience will become the Divining Point for the Future. Knowing we’re never alone, always guided by the Light of a Higher One, we can Dream of Divine Possibilities and KNOW “We Can” create Dreams of Love together. We were enough. We ARE enough. We will Believe when the Creator shares the Blessing of Living Water. The Seed will know the Blessing means it’s time to Wake up and reach for the Truth it Knows will be Seen in the Light.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for a “place called home” intended to be our Sanctuary. May we See and Acknowledge that we were given an Unseen Place in Time. The Truth of who we are is the Imperishable Spark within, that will turn to the Light of Love and Wisdom as the Answer to our Last Hope. In the prayer that acknowledges the Truth of all our Human limitations, we can see exactly what the Creator intends to Give. It would be a Miracle to see our limitations that way. Then, “all that is” and “all that is not” – as One, will manifest the Beauty of Everything.
May we reach in the darkness from a place called “home” where we KNOW we are One in a Divine Family. In the Divine Reflection we don’t grow up and leave home. We Remember the Place we Belong. The only reason we left was to Know another experience, so we could bring back the Truth that Love is where we Belong, and a Place called Love is “home” where there’s a place for everyone around the table.
We are creating memories of Love that could carry on for ALL Time. CAUAC will share the Light that Love is the Truth that matters, and a Light that will shine in the darkness when we reach, expecting to see. Knowing Now how Beautiful the experiences were that we didn’t see, may our eyes be trained on the Light of the One that knows where to see it and all the expressions that tell the same story.
in lak’ech, I am another you

THE SANCTUARY OF OUR DREAMS
Whenever we go to the altar within, we can carry something from “the other side” from below. We can bring Candles, light the incense, and imagine stained-glass windows. Or, our Sanctuary may be next to a stream, surrounded by the Beauty of Nature. The Great Law of Creation is “As Above, So Below.” The Creation we manifest in Spirit is a Dream the Creator can turn into a REAL Experience, one that Human knows with all our Senses. May we use the Highest Light to shine the Truth of how Beautiful our Own Sanctuary for Love could be.

12 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. Twelve is a gift of great capacity of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
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: Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. 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. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.
