THE TRECENA OF ROAD/EB: THE ROAD TO DESTINY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 8 begins the Transformation phase of the trecena, guided by Divine Intervention. Tone 8 reflects the Intention of Justice. The Balance is measured by the One Above. It’s not how well we climbed, but the Reason Why.
The Maya define the number 8 as “pure spirit.” A Divine Hand raises the Light of Harmony and Equity.
The Road/EB trecena is the Human experience to know the Truth of Divine Guidance. We don’t make the journey alone. Everyone was meant to belong. The Circle is connected for all time, one generation of Loving after another. We all reached for our Highest Hopes. Kneeling in the Light, we see the Treasure Above.
Storm/CAUAC is the Light that breaks through all our darkness to seize our Love to the Heart of Sky. CAUAC offers a Renewal and Regeneration of our Spirit through “lightning in the blood.” Holding the Element of Water, CAUAC creates the Gift of Living Water. CAUAC breaks through to Free our Heart to Love.
Residing in the West, CAUAC lights up the whole landscape for a Glimpse of our Future. Love was still everywhere that it Belongs, and we are in the picture. CAUAC is the midwife that opens the way to the Light.
Our Inherent thought is to run for cover when we see a Storm on the horizon. CAUAC is the Comfort of Sanctuary we’ve been reaching to find. Drawn across the threshold of Spirit, there’s a Place for us. We can create the Sanctuary within by our own Divine Design.
CAUAC offers the Unbridled Freedom to be, like the Lightning that finds a path every which way. The One Above can find us all, exactly where we are. CAUAC returns our peace of mind and restores the “feeling of youth.” From the center of our sanctuary, we see the world going around, a whirlwind of Life. In Our Place, the Time is all ours. When we set Love Free, there’s all the Time in the world to know it.
We see Our Life and all the possibilities. We have an Only One, and now there’s something we want to do.
Road/BEN was the first grown-up journey for this new Seed of our Self. We were born of another Seed of our Self, that invested Dreams in who we could be today. It’s all a distant memory now, but we Dreamed and Re-Created our Self.
At times of Transformation the Elders always advise us to look around the Medicine Wheel to remember our place in time. What Seeds were we holding through the Dreamtime of Winter? We dreamed of Spring and now we’re nearing the Summer. The world is waiting for the Dream of a New Life.
To all my relations, may we kneel to the One that can speak directly to our Heart. May we offer our Thanks and Appreciation from a Sanctuary within for all the Light that has reached out to touch our Heart and Mind. May we count our blessings for them and send our Light Above. May we be Humbled by the Beauty that there are Ones Above who Love and still Care about our Human Life.
May we claim a Divine Blessing to our Spirit is the Sacred Exchange we claim to raise the Light of the Whole.
in lak’ech, I am another you

8 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eights carefully weighs all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement ‘as above, so below,’ from simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation, some eights are ‘neat freaks.’
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.

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.
