THE TRECENA OF STORM/CAUAC: GRASPED BY THE LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. The Wind is the Voice and the Final Word of Creation. The glyph illustrates the “T” portal that is carved in stone. “Te” is revered by the Maya as a sacred word, the sound of the Creator’s 1st Breath. The portal magnifies the Sound of the Wind and directs Vision to a predetermined end.
IK represents the most Critical Element of Life and the Creator’s Authority over our first and last breath. We are what the Creator intended us to be. It was Spoken. The Alpha and Omega stand as the Truth from the beginning to the end. To claim the Divine Inheritance is Human’s Choice.
IK resides in the North, representing Divine Wisdom. Wisdom is not a body of Knowledge, but the Application of Truth. White and Yellow Day Signs represent experiences of “darkness” – an application of Truth to an Unknown Experience. We can discern the Truth of our Divine Communion by the Light that appears within to shine a way.
IMIX raised us to pay attention to our “wild ideas,” for the One that would shine brighter than the rest. The Element of Air connects Humans as One. All thoughts are electrical signals that pass through the Light. Air relates to our thoughts and faculties of our mind. The Sun’s Light is a natural source of Purification.
One Discernment of Truth can change the way we see an experience. One variable of Unknown Truth can tear away a filter we created out of thin air. We followed a passing thought without an application of Consciousness or Patience to see the whole picture. Have you ever created an entire scenario around an experience, just to find one detail of the situation that changed the whole story? (Once, I was sure they were going to phase out my job, due to a slow response to a desperate call for tech support. It was a technical issue. Who could have guessed that. )
Wind/IK can share a Divine Truth like that. The Elders say to pay attention to our thoughts when the Wind catches our attention. Through the Element of Air, a Divine Creator can engage all our senses. We were told to Stop. What were we thinking, when the Wind spoke to us? A gentle breeze can tell us that all things are right with the world. A gust can give us a friendly push. IK is the Power of the god Huracan, able to change the whole landscape of our life if that’s what it takes to direct our thoughts toward Love. The Whirlwind of Life holds the Power to draw us back to Love, when without a thought, we run to save one another.
Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. We saw a Speck of a Divine Possibility to Love. We don’t want to forget. Like the experience of IMIX, with every Divine Inspiration we Love, we run to write it down – afraid we might forget. It was a Divine Inspiration and we’ve yet to fill in all the details of the picture. Tone 4 presents the Way of the Cube, the most stable of all forms in the Universe. The area of the cube is measured by its boundaries and parameters. We are trying to create a dimension of thought.
In the 4th Hour of Light, the Maya arrived at the field of their Dreams. They measured the borders and parameters to define a “body of work.” It’s a Common Human thought of everyday. We are moved to go to work. We see everything left on the workbench from yesterday. We imagine the end of the day, what we would like to accomplish. We devise a strategy and an approach based on our calculation of human possibilities.
Through the Gift of Consciousness we can Choose a boundary of thoughts. We can establish by Intention which thoughts we will follow. We know where they lead. It’s only a matter of paying attention and Applying the Truth of our Choice. The Truth is the most important element for every Intention. We have to have a Reason that speaks to our Heart and Mind.
We don’t manifest Creation because it’s a good idea. Dreams come and go. The one with our Name on it will Speak to our Heart. It will carry us on the journey of thoughts for all the Reasons we think it will be Divine Genius.
Storm/CAUAC is directing us to the Sanctuary of Home, the place within that always knows the Truth that Matters. We are being Given the Inspiration to Love our Self and our Dream. CAUAC is the Light of Truth in Divine Communion, Truth that grabs our Heart. Love will guide us to the Light of Happiness. Only Human thinks that every creation must be a financial success. Money is never the dream, but what money can do. Love buys happiness. Divine Love buys more Love than our Heart can hold. Love is manifested from the currency of Love.
In the 5th uinal we are discovering a source of Power within. We are seeing the Light of our own Ways and Means of Creation, as a Power beyond our Self – a facility of our Divine Design. In the Harvest cycle of the Tzolk’in, we are growing into the Maturity of Knowing who we are and what we want to do with out Life. The buds are appearing on the limbs of our Tree of Life. They will blossom in the Light.
To all my relations, may we See and Acknowledge a Choice for Happiness as a simple matter. There’s only One Answer and we always know what it is. May we find our legs to stand by the Truth that a Divine Universe will return all the Love we See and Acknowledge in a Sacred Exchange.
May we consider how Life takes on new colors when we claim we’ve found the One and Only. May we give thanks for the ways we are changed by Love. May we claim the exponential Power of Love to change us Now, and carry our Highest Hopes to Faith and Believing.
in lak’ech, I am another you

HOLDING THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR: The Power of Gratitude
I’m grateful we were Created to express Happiness as the Beauty of Life.
“All is silent and calm. Hushed and empty is the womb of the sky. THESE, then, are the first words, the first speech. There is not yet one person, one animal, bird, fish, crab, tree, rock, hollow, canyon, meadow, or forest. All alone the sky exists. The face of the earth has not yet appeared. Alone lies the expanse of the sea, along with the womb of all the sky. There is not yet anything gathered together. All is at rest. Nothing stirs. All is languid, at rest in the sky. There is not yet anything standing erect. Only the expanse of the water, only the tranquil sea lies alone. There is not yet anything that might exist. All lies placid and silent in the darkness, in the night. All alone are the Framer and the Shaper, Sovereign and Quetzal Serpent, They Who Have Borne Children and They Who Have Begotten Sons. Luminous they are in the water, wrapped in quetzal feathers and cotinga feathers. Thus they are called Quetzal Serpent. In their essence, they are great sages, great possessors of knowledge. Thus surely there is the sky. There is also Heart of Sky, which is said to be the name of the god.” (Huracán) The Popol Vuh, pg. 56-57 (Christenson)

4 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)
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.
Wind/IK: Breath of Spirit, breath of life. Winds embody the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. Dreamers and planners with powerful imaginations, Wind persons make great orators and they spread the word of spiritual inspiration as it is carried by the wind. Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change. As the wind, these persons are extremely changeable and adaptable. They may appear inconsistent or fickle to others. Wind can be destructive to self and others by putting on airs. When Winds strut and boast, expanding on facts and accomplishments, they are building the dark clouds of trouble that may become hurricanes.
Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA: Whirlwind’s symbol is a double spiral helix in rising smoke. Wind brings energy for an Inquiring mind, learning and wisdom. In Cherokee, the constellations are represented by 12 birds (dancers), the 13th bird is the Whirlwind, the lead dancer. This reflects the whirling of life. Wind is the breath of the Universe (matching the Mayan symbol) channel of communication and carries the Sacred Smoke to the Great Spirit (Source- Hunab Ku in Mayan); matches the pulse of the breath of the Cosmos.
[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
