THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 7 completes the Human climb to the top of the pyramid. Above the canopy, we can see “all that is” and “all that is not.” Number 7 represents the Power to Manifest our Dreams into Reality. Life is what we expect it to be. With the Power to see our own thoughts, we can choose to raise our expectations. Love is a Truth that only grows brighter, when we see it from every perspective on every scale.
We know a Human touch Intended as an Expression of Love. We know the Truth when we see it. Love creates its Sparks of Light and delivers an electrical charge through the Heart. The Truth ignites “lightning in the blood,” what the Maya call the Sixth Sense of the Heart.
All the Day Signs are archetypes of the All-in-One. Each reflects a side of a Divine Personality. We were created for a Relationship. The Hunab Ku is the Maya’s nearest description of a One God, defined as “everything that ever was, is, or ever could be.” Their pantheon of gods are personalities Human can conceive for Relationship. We are One with the Whole. The archetypes help us see ways we are different, yet understand through the sparks of Love that ARE just the same.
The best way to know the All-In-One is to know one another. Our Destiny Kin tells the story of our Time and Place. Some nahauls are totems from the animal world, where the strength is beyond Human’s Nature, like the Dog that always defends the pack. There are more ways to be Divine than Human can count on our fingers and toes. Our Collective Love is greater than all these things. Love multiplied “everything that ever was, is, or ever could be.” It seems “impossible” to Human’s mind of Reason, and just as “impossible” to imagine. Every expression holds the Beauty of Love. “Love Unseen” is the darkness. “Love Seen” is the Light.
Storm/CAUAC holds the Power of Lightning to grasp our Faith and carry it to the Heart of Sky. CAUAC shares a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit. CAUAC is the “midwife that delivers” us to the Light, opening a path to the very Dream of Love that is our Spark within. On Flint/ETZNAB we were willing to Give our Heart to know the Truth of Love. We opened our Heart to share what was hidden. Unconditional Love changes “impossible” to “possible” by a Light that claims we Belong.
IN SYNCHRONICITY WITH THE UNIVERSE:
Today is a Full Super Moon in Libra, a Complete Reflection of the Sun’s Light on the Truth that Balances the Scales. The Divine Justice for Faith is the Whole Light of Believing. Referred to as the Worm Moon, the Time heralds New Life in the Spring. The Sugar Moon (Ojibwe) marks the time when the sap flows. The Wind Strong Moon (Pueblo) refers to the strong windy days that come at this time of year. The Sore Eyes Moon (Dakota, Lakota, Assiniboine) highlights the blinding rays of sunlight that reflect off the melting snow of late winter. This Super Moon is the Lenten Moon marking the next Sunday (7th Day) as Easter. Signs are given Now for the Future.
When there’s a storm on the horizon it’s a Divine Instinct to run for shelter. CAUAC brings the Comfort of a Storm. We always turn to an altar as our Last Hope. The Storms of Life bring the Blessing of LIVING Water. The Water for Living is the Truth that comes after the storm is over. A few dead limbs may be missing, but we’ll be stronger when all our Forces for Life are channeled into the arms that can bear the most fruit. The Truth set us free.
The Sanctuary of Spirit lies in the Center of our Circle within, the realm of our own witness of Time. Truth lost to our unconscious thoughts was recorded. We’ve seen the Truth of all our Time. It only takes Time to know which pieces fit together. When Love is the Inspiration, we eagerly add 2+2. We’ll even make some pieces fit that don’t belong. The Gift of Consciousness is the Wisdom to know the difference, and to Love the Truth of “all that is.” Truth leads a way around Human’s limitations. We will follow the Truth that we believe. The Power to Create is the Sacred Right of Choice. CAUAC is the Light of Unbridled Freedom to be. If we take the Time to SEE the BIG PICTURE, a Light of Unconditional Love is the Truth that whatever we Love is always “enough.”
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Love held to its Highest Standard. Love for Family, Home, and the Children, gave us a Reason to Live the Truth that we Believe. Holding Faith in Love, we’ll see our “worst days” as only the Times of darkness to dream of “better days.” “Better days” will fall in order to prove our Dreams came True.
CAUAC resides in the West, the Unknown Future. CAUAC is the Lightning that creates Living Water, collecting Like Thoughts together as One Bright Light of Truth. CAUAC can break through all our doubts and fears, to the Dream of Belonging that lies Deep in our Heart. When Truth is Personal, we know we are no exception.
CAUAC can forge the Truth of Love in our Consciousness, a Truth we could turn to again and again. ALL our Dreams for a “better day” are answered with the Light of every New Beginning. The Meaning of Time is the same on every scale. Our Life can be changed in One Leap to believe there’s more Love than we can ever see. With the Truth of Time, we hold the Ways and Means of Divine Wisdom.
Love always multiplies with Time. Love is a Divine Power with its own ends to reach us where we are.
Doubts, fears, and illusions in the world of physicality are ALL forgotten over the course of Time. Only the Truth of Humanity prevails. One of my earliest teachers on the mystical path guided me to think about my Time and Place on the scale of ALL Time. I couldn’t conceive how the reflection held any meaning for my life. My life hardly mattered on the scale of ALL time.
Wisdom is adding all the pieces of Truth about Love, “The Creation” of a “Witness of Beauty,” manifested to Share the Divine Experience. We are only pieces of Light in the darkness, positioned to share the Beauty we can imagine for our Time and Place. Through all the darkness we conceive the Light of our Heart’s Desire. When we grasp the Truth of Unconditional Love – we Believe Our Dream is more than worthy to be. In fact, we are the Only One in this Place in Time to see the Beauty of OUR Divine Justice.
The “Consciousness of Love” created a Circle of Life through Hearts that were open to Love. When we allow Love to Flow like a River, through us, the Love we share will be made Whole with the Living One. A Truth of Forever Love is a Dream Human will ALWAYS reach to claim in the Light of “possibility.” In the Reflection we can see the Light of Truth Claims us, for all the Truth we’ve seen, “home” is REAL and the End is To Believe.
Tone 7 is the threshold to the realm of Spirit. The Maya saw the top of the pyramid as the Time and Place for the Leap of Faith. Tone 7 holds the Intention of Reflection. Like the reflection of the Obsidian Mirror, the stairs that descend, continue to rise in the Reflection. There is a limit to the Truth that Human can see and believe from the realm of our own Time and Place.
Sun/AHAU taught us to look for the Truth in plain sight. The beauty of our Human limitations is that “all that is” and “all that is not” is NOT “all that is.” Through the application of Truth we could always see that Life is created for More Love and Happiness than we could ever imagine. “What is” is just all that we can see of it. The Whole Truth of our Life includes the Dream that lies in a Realm Above. When Faith is turned to Believing in a Sanctuary Above, we will know the way “home” to the Truth of Love.
7 CAUAC delivers us to the Higher Altar. The Truth we can’t see is our Divine Offering. The Light of CAUAC is our Unbridled Freedom to be, that Feeling we knew when we were just starting out our own Life, dreaming anything was possible and wanting to do everything Our Way. Opening a path to “see the light,” the Choice was our Greatest Blessing.
It’s the Wayeb. We have to find the Light Within our Self to choose the next Wise thing to do. We’re in charge as the Guiding Light for Family and “Home” – the Authority, so what’s the Wisest next thing we could do? The Answer lies at an altar in the Sanctuary within.
The Elders say that when we come to an altar, the Offering that we bring for the Sacred Exchange should reflect what we expect to Receive in Return. We should Come Expecting to Receive in Return. The Jaguar guards the threshold to the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. To cross requires the “earth magic” of Gratitude. To conceive the Offering that is worthy, we count our Blessings. We are Humbled by the Fire that burns through the Flesh to the “hollow bone.”
When we count among our blessing, the Sacred Right to Choose, we’ll see the Divinity of the Offering to bend to the Creator’s Love. In our own Choice of Tolerance, Forgiveness, and Compromise, we’ll Ground the Truth of Unconditional Love as our Divine Light on Earth… the Beauty of our Highest Offering that was never Expected, an Expression of “everything we were given to give.”
To all my relations, may we look to the Truth of Love all around, for all the different ways Human Consciously or Unconsciously reaches to know it. The Creation is the Animation of Love, a Movement that Created Time. Time IS the Movement of Love and we are the Path for the Light to Flow through one Life to another. Love is the Sacrifice of One Life for Another.
May we give thanks for the Light to See us Through more than a few “nameless days.” May we find the “home” within and MAKE it a REAL place. We can carry our Realty across the Threshold to our Dreams. If Dreams can cross the Threashold to Create Reality Below. If we can imagine it, we can cross the threshold to make it a REAL part of our Human Life. If you can imagine that in Time the realm Above can become as Tangible as Life Below… then the Truth lies within the realm of “possibility.”
May our Heart be opened to see we are the Light with the Freedom to Complete Every Heart’s Desire.
in lak’ech, i am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLAUDIA!!! You were a shining Light for me on the Pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam. Thank you for opening ways for me on the Jaguar’s path! Blessings back for the Dream of your Heart’s Desire!
7/11/77 – My life was changed forever when I became a Mother, and Knew a Creation of Love that never ends. My son’s birthday fell in sync with 7 CAUAC on the last Tzolk’in round. 2020 was HIS YEAR (5 Reed/BEN) to create his Heart’s Desire. Born Cancer, it lined up with the Dream of Domestic Family life and the Sanctuary of Home. I was isolated from the picture, except for a few precious hours of the year. Inside their circle, they were all as happy as clams. It took Patience and the Whole Year guided by 9 Earth/CABAN to see the Truth of Divine Justice. It is the Truth of my Heart’s Desire, the dream I could never complete as a single parent. He carried on to make my Dream come true. I still Belong in the Dream, manifested through Right Relationship. There is a Divine Reason to bend and Let Love Be. Without any doubt, a 5 Reed/BEN can create a Sanctuary of Home. I’m witness to the Light shining in the Universe. They kept saying they needed a break, so finally dropped the kids off for one hour a few weeks ago. His children are living the “dream of my childhood.” The Truth can be the Light that Hurts our eyes. Though in Divine Light, we can see how beautifully Time carries Love to its Highest end.
HOLDING THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR: The Power of Gratitude

7 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
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’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus. Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. 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. 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. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground. (Cauac is a source energy of Flint/ETZNAB.)
