THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
THE WAYEB: The Nameless Days
The Year Bearer of the Haab by Northern count moved on in the night. 9 Earth/CABAN, a symbol of Life and Movement that is “finished,” completed its Intention of Truth. Earth/CABAN is a Red Day Sign, marking a planetary cycle of Divine Inspiration, “Light.” Following every cycle of “Light” is the cycle of “Darkness,” human’s application of Truth that manifests the Wisdom of our own Experience.
Isolated from one another we were given Time to Imagine who we are and what we were intended to be. We saw the Truth we created in the world below. In the darkness, we found our own Light – a Dream of Life to carry on. We were Dreaming of everything that Life was meant to be.
March 31, 2021 is the Haab New Year led by 10 Wind/IK. The Element of Air is our common field of thoughts, electrical signals, and the elements of our self we exchange with every breath. Wind/IK holds the Power of the god Huracan, a Supreme Creator’s Intention for the Whole. On a planetary scale, the Winds of Truth and a Promise of Love can change the landscape to change our mind.
10 represents Manifestation. Wind/IK is the Breath of Life, and the Breath of Spirit, the Voice of the Creator we can hear and Wind that we can Feel. 10 Wind/IK marks a journey to know the Truth of Divine Justice – the end that manifested the beginning. We were given Wisdom to manifest the Divine Truth.
In the meantime, the 5 days of the Wayeb are observed as the Time to stay in the Sanctuary of Home. The Maya only venture out to check in on neighbors and family. There is no one in charge on the plane of physicality to wield the influence of Divine Intention. It’s up to us.
If anything, 9 Earth/CABAN marked a year we were supposed to learn something. We were given all the Truth we need to see we have to find another way. We HAVE to hold the Intentions of Love to ever know Peace and Harmony. We have to see and acknowledge a Divine Reason for every Life.
Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. In synchronicity with Divine Time, we are given the Power to Carry on, on the very day we need to Believe in our Self. Earth/CABAN is the “light” of knowing who we are, and the Clarion Call to LIVE WITH ALL OUR HEART. CABAN is the Aztec Ollin, the Heart of the stone calendar that marks 20 Divine Places in Time. They represent the aspects of Divine Being, like the perspectives of the 20 Day Signs. CABAN is related to the “Identity Imprint” – an Intimate Consciousness of Life within that wants to be.
The Tzolk’in is Human’s Road to Destiny, a cycle shared by the Whole within the Truth of our own Time and Place. The Haab synchronizes “human’s Truth” on a planetary scale. There is a Bigger Picture in 2021. So is this time in synchronicity with the Earth’s “great migrations.” It’s Time for a Human Migration to Holy Ground. We are called to Live with all our Heart. Tone 5 is the Center of the Cube, the central organizing force of thought to gather what’s needed before “the work” begins.
We are called to gather our Resources of Spirit. We were given the Realm Above to see that we are Heroes, holding the Equal Power of EVERY Savior who ever Loved and walked in someone else’s shoes. To claim a New Life, old ways have to Rest in Peace. We are given the Consciousness of the Scion to see “We Can.” The Highest Resource of “Light” will call the Way through our Heart.
CABAN is a Sacred Fire for Life that burns within. The Firekeeper who carried out the Sacred Fire Ceremonies, always announced the direction the first log fell. In a new year, we’ll see which way the Divine Wind blows. Wind/IK is an accelerant to the ends of returning Matter into Pure Energy. IK will ignite the Passion within with every Conscious-Sacred-Breath we take.
Earth/CABAN is our “Divine Mother” who shows us the way to Live in Harmony and Balance. She is the Source of everything Human knows about everything. She was the Divine comparison. The Creator’s “standard” is her Beauty. All we have to do to know how to love, is watch “the birds and the bees.” Their everyday Intention is invested in their own “work of life” to maintain the Sanctuary of Life. They know Time, an Order, and a Path. When their Heart is called by a Meaning of Spring, they follow with all their heart.
Divine Time holds its synchronicity on every calendar. Venus has moved into Aries, along with the Light of the Sun, shining on the Truth of Identity. The Wildebeests are bearing their calves after a Leap of Faith toward a New Life where water flows and pastures are green. The Heron is the Cherokee Day Sign, symbolizing a Life of perpetual migration. The Great Migration of the Heron/Sand Cranes is underway, called from all points on the globe to one place in the Western Sand Hills of Nebraska. Children are running for their lives across the Southern border. We each have our own Personal reason. We realize “we can” and we have to Run now, while our Passions burn.
Earth/CABAN is the Movement that Created Time, the Beauty that established an Order in the Universe. She is defined by her Orbit from its beginning to the end. “Who she was and all that she is” couldn’t be known until she completed her first orbit. The Maya saw it as her gestation cycle. Human was made of her and so were we marked by the TIme we were drawn together. Tone 5 is the Inherent thought of Divine Design to take stock of our own resources. CABAN shares the Light of Life as a REASON to see. We’re about to make our run for it.
Easter is just ahead, a celebration of the Savior who faced the trials of Life, choosing to Forgive was the Act that Defined the Whole Meaning of Life. The “Christ Spirit” is the “pure Intention” to Love – the Demonstration of Faith in what we believe.
CABAN holds the Element of Fire to generate the Passion to Move. The Aztec say it’s an important day to take action… “lucky for the active principle; unlucky for the passive pinciple.” This is NOT a day to just go along. And we won’t. We arrived in this Time and Place by just “going along.” It’s OVER.
The glyph illustrates Human’s Power of Divine Discernment. The straight line begins from the East as Human’s first thought of “objective consciousness” – the first discernment of “what is.” That leads to Human’s Imagination. From what little bit we see, we imagine a whole understanding. That’s as far as Human thoughts take us, trailing off without any meaning and purpose. The rising circles represent a Chosen thought, Possibilities beyond knowing, the exponential factor of Love.
The Whole Divine Truth isn’t complete, unless we’ve learned to Apply the Light. There ARE Divine Possibilities. The Earth was the Garden given for us to claim, like Venus shines, in the Morning and the Night. What do we REALLY Believe?
How would we Live, if we REALLY believed we were born of a Common Mother, and Powers Above and Below hold a Divine Provision for all our Human limitations? We would believe that we Can, and God Will.
To all my relations, may we reach for the Highest Light in our Self. We were created as Divine Heroes in a realm Above. The Creator saw us worthy to carry on. When we count the Resources of our own Faith, may we count the One that Only sees our Light. Monkey/CHUEN could help us see the Humor of a Divine Savior, a Knight in shining armor, sitting on the curb – “woe is me.” What’s the use of holding Divine Power, if we have to hide in the house. May we carry our Sanctuary out into the world to share the Time with the Ones like us, who Belong.
The face of K’inich Ahau resides in the center of the Ollin symbol, representing the Brightest Light of the Sun. K’inich Ahau appears as the 1st Light, like the flash of Dawn at the New Year. The Light beams the Truth from the beginning that will be seen again at the end. The Light will be with us all the way in every journey to the Unknown that lies in the West. Like the Maori tradition, the ferocity represents the Passion of the Intention. On either side are the “claws of a Divine Mother” a Mayan goddess that guards the Life of every Seed, and you better not mess with her children.
The Most Important Acts of God happen in the Heart. Love is a Power with a Force of its own. Like Light, when we Feel the Truth of it, the Light carries on and the Sound ripples the Feeling through the whole. May we know that all the Love we can manifest within our Sanctuary of Self is a Light moving through Time that draws the Whole into Sympathy as One.
Every Human Being deserves to see themselves as a Hero. And there’s a Hero in every Life. Every Human life had to be saved by another in the beginning. There was more than One who saw our Life was Beautiful.
YOU ARE ALREADY HEROES TO ME! You saved me when I was all alone and invisible! I’m still alone, and we can’t see each other. Though, I know how much you deserve your own Divine Justice. The Light of One is good enough for the Whole for a Love beyond our imagination.
May we remember the exponential Power of Momentum is now just One more step away. What we set into motion as our Rhythm and Pattern of Movement will be carried on by Divine Laws and Forces of the Universe.
WE ARE “ALL IN” THE RACE TOGETHER! May we come out at night and wish on a star. Then wonder, why we only needed One, and what the odds are that the One we Chose was REALLY shining for us. If it’s not beyond Human’s imagination, the Truth is a Divine Possibility.
May we keep a candle burning to remember the Divinity of Human’s Choice to Create the Beauty of Love that leads its own way.
in lak’ech, i am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
P.S. How many signs do we need to see to believe a New Beginning is Here and Now. If there was a Reason for the Creation and it was Love, then… what’s the TRUTH we can’t see? That is NOT a rhetorical question. I don’t know, and REALLY want to know. We deserve to know. We will know.
HOLDING THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR: The Power of Gratitude
I’m grateful for the Times we Know Life is Divine and we are willing to take the Chance to Believe we can.

5 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
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. “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 Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hall)
