6 Earth / CABAN – Road to Tomorrow: Day 6 of 13



6 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 raises the Intention of Flow. We began one step at a time. The Truth begins to add up that we’re Invested in a Creation of Love. The 6th Hour of Light is the last hour before we break for lunch. We see the Time and where things will stand at the halfway point.

In the 6th Hour we see our progress. We are responding differently to a matter than we did in the beginning. In fact, the whole game may have changed and boiled down to a Choice to Forgive. We see less to forgive, and higher hopes for the Light at the End.

Some tools worked better than others. We put a new system in place as we went along. The end we saw at the beginning has changed with this “new way.” A possibility for Love became real. Even a little bit of the growing Light is enough for One Last Try.

It doesn’t have to look like much, if we can just take one Whole Step forward by the end. On Tone 6 we feel the Momentum of a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. A new train of thought is beginning to kick in and we know our thoughts are turning to a Higher End. Tone 6 is the energy and force of a “great athlete,” when all the means and ways are Wholly Invested to reach an end. When we Love, Movement becomes an Expression of our Love. We ARE carrying out “a way” to Love. Love is the Power to Heal the Whole, when we learn to let it Flow through Time.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Perpetual Movement, the Way of Mother Earth. Everything known to Human was learned through her and the Movement that Creates Time. We  create “the Time of our Life.” No one else knows our Divine Justice the way we do.

CABAN reminds us of the Beauty that was written by Divine Design on every scale. To see a Miracle every day, we only have to look close up or far away. CABAN is the Heart that carries on the Journey of Love. The Elders say that Mother Earth is the First Living Gift of the Creator, to create a Life in the Center of a Living World. Life holds every opportunity for Happiness, when we turn to See and Acknowledge her Beauty.

Every living thing was given a path of migration, a way of being that defines an identity and consciousness. All living things were given the Truth, which way to go. Earth/CABAN is the clarion call to Move, and to Run to Love with ALL our Heart.


The CABAN glyph illustrates the ways and means of Divine Discernment. From the East begins a straight line, representing Human’s thoughts of linear Reason, our objective consciousness to see “what it is.” That thought leads to our imagination to discern “what it means.” That’s the unconscious program always running in the background as Human’s thoughts. We are the Witness to all the details of Truth. The rising circles represents the thoughts between the Above and the Below. When we reach for Higher Truth, our mind is open. A Divine Discernment of Truth requires us to reach beyond the truth “we think we know.” The greatest Wisdom of all is to claim how little we’ve seen of the Truth, inside, everywhere. To know Truth we have to consider Divine Possibilities. We dreamed to walk a long time before we learned how. Our Spirit knows the steps we HAVE to take to grow up. Parents know we have to fall down. The children turn to us to see if they should cry.

The Aztec sign is Ollin, which simply means Movement. The symbol lies at the center of the stone calendar, marking 20 Divine Places in Time. They say it is a very unlucky day to just go along with our unconscious thoughts, and a DIVINE DAY to follow the Higher Truth we know within. We can make some progress that Feels Real as we are seeing the possibility of a higher end than we saw in the beginning. Ollin directs the Meaning of Time, and Now is the TIme to Invest our whole heart in Love.

The Heron is the Cherokee sign, one that lives a life of perpetual migration. Our Life is an experience of perpetual change. We can never lean on a “truth of yesterday” for Tomorrow. We can’t even stand on the Truth of Now. Time and Life change everything. The Wildebeest is another nahaul like the Heron. The Great Migrations begin with a scent in the air, and a Divine Thought of Greener Pastures we can’t See, but our Heart knows is True. Heavy with their calves, they make the Divine Leap across the River to the Otherside where Life can carry on in Beauty and Abundance.

Earth holds the Element of Fire within. Love is burning in our heart, and the fear of losing a way. A Divine Agency Above knows when we’re reaching our limits of the Truth we have to see. We are growing the Inner Strength to make Loving our Highest Priority for Time. We are reaching for the Forgiveness to let Life Be. When we’re Happy, we get lost in the Beauty of our Life. Even Happiness has a parameter, the Love to consider another One. Can we Let Love Be?

A Divine One intends for Love to Be Forever. If we can Feel the Truth – just a little bit – we can Run with that. It’s TIME to run for our Life.

CABAN holds the Light in the East. In the East, one morning, a Light will break for us and it will be the Day we Know and Understand. A Divine Agency is leading  us to the Truth, and they don’t ever stop before they reach their Divine Ends. If we follow the Jaguar’s footprints a few steps more, we’ll see the Light shining for us at an altar.

The Truth will be born. Spirit is our Real identity, defined by every choice we make. When we are invested to know the Love of the  One, we’ll know who we are by the One that holds that last hope, that Love holds its own exponential Power to make a difference, close up and far away.

We were given a Choice, TO LOVE. We have to have a Choice, to Love. We have to have a Choice to be drawn to the Time of Love. We don’t dream of being the center of attention, when people HAVE to be there. There’s no chance of knowing the Truth of Love, without offering a choice. At every end of Time, we know the Love that waits is reliable and True. We can turn Time into the Truth of Love. We could prove it by claiming it as Our Truth.

To all my relations, Life is hard, and we’re the only one to live the One that we were given. All the things that seem to stand in our way, are Moving On. If we can allow Love to Move on to the next experience of Life, there will be Light, Love and Happiness in the future. The friendships that last are the ones that Wait for Time, and pick up where they left off. They don’t focus on the time apart, but the next time and all the stories we will have to tell when we catch up.

May we allow the whole to catch up to the Time that is planned for us to know the Truth that we were always One. May we invest the Power of all our Divine thoughts to the end of our Dream. We won’t fly away when we see how close we are to getting beyond a Human limitation. May we Leap and Fall again, like an Eagle, to the next Truth that catches our Wings and Lean into it with all our Heart.

The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix. We can be born to Love again.  One last hope in Love is the Greatest Love, when we are wholly invested in the Choice, flying on Faith without seeing a way. We prove that Love is Our Only Way. We can Love the Whole through Mother Earth. She knows the Truth of every TIme and Place. May we carry Life beyond the ashes of our past. CIMI holds our hand.

When we go to sleep, may we remember that when wake to see the Light, we’ll know we reached Tomorrow.

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m grateful that Love holds its own Power. “Divine Love that waits” Will Be Seen, when Love is Remembered.

6 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.

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.

[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.
