THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN: A MIGRATION OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 7 is the end of Human’s climb at the top of the pyramid. We are raised by an Intention of Reflection to see “all that is” and “all that is not” all around from human’s highest perspective. The Mirror’s Reflection is the threshold.
In the Reflection the stairs that descend are stairs leading on to a realm Above. At the threshold of the Holy of Holies there are 2 altars. Chac Mool, the reclining one, resides in the first inner room, a reminder to draw a Sacred Breath from the Center to the Crown. The Jaguar’s altar guards the threshold in the second inner room to guide the “earth magic” of Gratitude.
We are measured in the Balance on Tone 7 for the end of Divine Justice. We are measured beyond our Human limitations. What matters is the Love we chose to carry through Time.
A Divine Creator offered a way for thoughts to Rise forever. The top of the pyramid is the place for a Leap of Faith, beyond human’s imagination. Like the CABAN glyph illustrates, we have to leap beyond Human’s imagination to the circles rising in thin air, thoughts of Divine Possibilities.
What is True Above is True Below. Thoughts were given a Higher Place to go at the end of every day. ALL Time has a Divine Meaning and Purpose. Dreams are still a Mystery. Dreams release us from a natural order and duration of Time. The realm Above is the One that’s Real. Time is a human construct. Earth’s movement offered a separation of experience in the dark and light. Days can pass in the Night. In our Dreams everything is possible.
We learned from N’oj and Mother Earth the meaning of the Hours of our Day. Night/AKBAL brings the Truth for the realm of darkness and the Unknown. Through a Reflection we can see what is hidden, applying what we know about One side, backwards, to the other. Everything “that is” will be everything “that is not.” Everything “that’s not” will be Everything “that is.”
AKBAL is the Dreamer that believes in the Dream, just like We Believe – in the Dream. To cross the threshold to all possibility we have to make a Leap of Faith. Our Dreams are a place we can Leap to Know the Truth that’s Possible. AKBAL holds the potential for a mystic experience, dreaming awake. The Maya used the Time for an Intention to Live in their Dreams, a practice for lucid dreaming. AKBAL is a Voice of Truth we will hear in our Dreams, like it’s Real. A Divine Communion “comes to life” through the Power of AKBAL. The Creator intended a Relationship… a REAL one, like the ones below.
Night/AKBAL resides in the West, the direction of the Unknown. The future lies in the East in a realm Above, where we can see it from the West. The glyph illustrates a veil drawn back to see it, imposed on the face of Monkey/CHUEN. A Divine Creator KNOWS the Light in the Unknown. A Divine Creator can see Our Dreams, and a Voice will tell us the reason why they’re True. We are encouraged by AKBAL to willingly enter the darkness of our Dreams.
AKBAL is a Day of “Light.” Our Divine Inspiration will shine through the darkness. The end is believing the Dream is Real. We’ll know when we hear the Truth spoken in our Dream. Blue is the color of Spirit and the Heart of Sky. AKBAL detaches us for an objective view of our inner workings. We are Conscious of our Unconscious thoughts. We can see the Reasoning in our Imagination. Today we’re given a Reflection within. The Truth above looks opposite of an illusion below.
Days led by AKBAL feel more like dreaming than being awake, like we never woke up. There’s a Dream on our mind. Thoughts are sketchy as we try to remember something we can’t forget. Something beautiful was left on our pillow. We can’t see it now. We can only imagine what it was from the Beauty of a Feeling, the only thing we can remember. Holding the Element of Water, AKBAL reaches us the heart through our emotions. AKBAL’s point is Knowing the Truth of our Heart’s Desire.
Like a lost dream, the day may seem like we’re wandering in circles below, while our mind turns a Feeling over again, trying to Remember the end of Beauty. Trying to find the One Dream, we sort through all the feelings and dreams we knew before to find some reflection of this one. Only, the Dreams we imagine are just like this one… we can only see the Dreams that ended the same way, before claiming the Whole Truth of Love.
Night/AKBAL offers us a Dark Night, running around in our dreams looking for ends of Love we never found. The journey holds a Divine Purpose. Humans take Love for granted. And, what’s Common is hard to see having any substance when it becomes a background image. We don’t bother making a discernment about Love, once we know it’s True. Life pulls us back to the “everyday.” We don’t look to the “everyday” we’ve seen before. And, we don’t see Love that’s everyday, until it’s gone.
This is a day for bearing our Soul in a Heart-to-Heart. By the end of the day, a Truth WILL sink in to see all our limitations in the down below. Looking at the ends of all our dreams, there’s one that won’t let go. Only, dreaming it awake, all we can see is “impossible.” “It’s too late now. I made the wrong choices a long time ago. My dream was lost by human limitations. It’s MY fault, and I don’t know how to change it.”
On 7 AKBAL, the Leap of Faith is FEELING the Truth that could be a Fall to “the bottom” of the stairs. We see a ceiling we can’t break through. In the Dream that makes sense, the only way to Rise from here is to Fall.
To all my relations, a Voice holds the Answer to our Dreams. From the darkest dark, we’ll see the Brightest Light – any Light at all will be an answer to a Dream of “Impossible.” May we Give Thanks for the One in Divine Communion who knows EXACTLY what to say and what we need to hear. Today, we’ll receive a Truth to carry us through ALL our “dark nights.”
The Human dream is the fiction, for a Divine fantasy that’s True Above. A Force of Love Promised to carry all our Dreams of Love to their Ending. Have you ever lost Love? We haven’t seen the end.
May we open our heart and willingly Feel the Truth., Truth can set us Free from Impossible. At the end of our Life, we’ll rise like a Dream. Human loses consciousness before death. The last thoughts left will be Thoughts of Divine Design. We’ll all “die in our sleep” like our Common Dream, between a Breath Above and a Breath Below.
In the Haab Year 9 Earth/CABAN, we were given a year to step back and see what we created. We learned the Truth of Separation. It’s Time to manifest the Creator’s Truth for Life and Time to Receive the Light for Our Dream of Creation – one we can’t let go, however we’ve tried to resolve it.
When we see our Heart’s Desire, may we know it was created as the Our Highest Offering to the One as the Highest Dream we could imagine. Before we do, may we Remember to stand back to see the Whole Creation. May we be Humbled, counting our blessings. When we cross the threshold with our Highest Offering, may we share the Truth, Below. “This is all I could see, and the best that I could do.”
May every Offering be “Giving Back, and Paying Forward,” Seeing and Acknowledging IS Love that can be perpetual, shared back and forth. With Higher Consciousness, we’ll know the biggest debt we create and the One who didn’t have to Save Us. We Leaped for a human dream, then we traded it for what we can see from Mother Earth, is beauty beyond imagination – if we could see and know it all. We’re being turned to see something new.
in lak’ech, i am another you

A SACRED CEREMONY: The Elders shared a Sacred Ceremony for our Dreams. We were instructed to prepare the bedroom by smudging it down with our prayers, lay out the pajamas before a ritual bathing. Words given were “Ta tse clo ee ee eh” to acknowledge the Water that pours over us as the descending of Light. Stepping out in Purity, we were sent straight to bed.
The Earth/CABAN trecena is guided by Tlazolteotl, the “Filth Goddess” of Mother Earth. She is associated with the Moon, and our emotions, as the Goddess of Ritual Cleansing. The lord over CABAN intends for us to See Who We Are Becoming in the Highest Light. May we call upon the Highest Mother, the Goddess of Our Heart to claw away the veil of illusion, so we can See Our Light in the Darkness. AHO!

7 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective; 7 stands as the mirror to divide light and dark and reflect all that is and is not. 7 is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will. 7 establishes the purpose to current and future goals.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void… a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night.
