Holy Observances: A Mayan Forecast of the Future

Greetings Beloved Kin,

CIMI must have reminded me of the future. There are some very important dates ahead! I intended to write about the Lion’s Gate, but there’s an important date we’re ALL waiting for on August 1, 2022! GOOD NEWS!

I’ll focus on the impending Holy Days and how we can prepare to make the most of them, and include below the schedule of Holy Days to our next Ascension on 13 Sun/AHAU.

Holy Observances: This Round of the Tzolk’in

(Beginning 07/03/2022 – Ending 3/23/2023)

8/1/2022              Kin 30                    4 Dog/OC Global Burner, Community Fire

On Global Burner Days, the Mayan priest carries out the Sacred Fire Ceremony on behalf of the whole. There are 4 Global Burners, one in the center of each of the 4 seasons of the Tzolk’in, on the Tone 4 of Stability. It’s time for a big release of residual energy. Days are often stressful leading up to this date, when matters from the past are released. The community fire restores equilibrium and brings us back into harmony. 

When we are transformed to a higher truth, we need the time to see it more than once. We’ve putting new truth into practice. Leading up to the Global Burner, you might be thinking – “I get it – enough, already.” It’s important to apply new truth in a variety of scenarios to learn more than one way to move to higher ground. AND, “we got it” and it’s FINISHED on August 1, 2022. It should feel like we finally learned to tie our shoes!!! 

4 Dog/OC offers the Stability of Unconditional Love. We’ve been learning a way to forge our own trail, leaving behind what no longer serves us in Right Relationship. Learning to walk away is only half the effort. We have to See and Acknowledge the “hard road” – Love, and Forgive on behalf of the whole. Then we know peace of mind. 


The timing is very auspicious this round for the Lion’s Gate that is already opening on August 8, 2022. This Haab Year, led by 11 Deer/MANIK marks the need on a planetary scale for the Mission of the Mayan priest. The nahaul of MANIK is to lead the way on behalf of the whole. MANIK holds the Power of Harmonic Resonance – a “pied piper” that shares the Highest Vibration of Unconditional Love… beating a path to the altar, to pray on behalf of the whole, count the days, and observe the sacred ceremonies. MANIK is the giver of Spiritual Tools. Tone 11 holds the Intention of the Higher Consciousness of the One through the Atonement of the Offering.  This is a very important round and year to see the Power of our own Spiritual Tools. So, we need to be prepared to use them! 

That’s exactly how we’ll make it through the Lion’s Gate! The Wheel of Time is making a turn and the fates can turn one way or another. It only takes a dedicated practice, and engaging some new and higher ways, to grow leaps and bounds! 

8/8/2022 – THE LION’S GATE (Opens about a week before and closes about a week after)
August 8 is Julian Date 220. Kin 220 is 12 Sun/AHAU (Ian Xel Lungold’s Mayan birthday). When they created the Gregorian calendar they didn’t change this date from the sacred calendars that came before. It represents the Highest Human Understanding. We can see the Truth of the darkest dark or the Truth of the Brightest Light. It depends on what we are looking to see. 08/08 sets the course of abundance regardless which way we choose to go. The next 2-3 weeks represent a very important time to employ all the Spiritual Tools we can to keep our eyes trained on the “X” that marks the spot. 

I mentioned the altars and remembering the Ancestors is very important. The Global Burner August 1 offers an opportunity to be prepared, clear of old karma and residual matters, so we can focus on the new road ahead. It’s time to prepare a strategy for “taking the higher road.” 

Some ideas for preparation and for a new way you choose for yourself:

  • Ritual bathing is very helpful and anointing yourself with oil at the altar. I highly recommend some Frankincense for the top of your head, and Myrrh is very healing to the skin after bathing. 
  • The Elders said it is good to have many altars. We were taught to bury shrines for each of the 4 directions – preparing the place with water, cornmeal, sage, and tobacco to bury a stone or crystal, was to mark your place on the Spiritual Grid.  You can feed the shrines a handful of cornmeal from time to time, or an offering of your own inspiration. 
  • Laying 3 concentric circles of cornmeal around the parameter of your home was a way to draw the boundary of protection that offers a blessing to anyone who crosses. If you don’t have access to walk the parameter, you can do it exactly the same in Spirit
  • Sweep old energies away. Open a door or window to the East. 
  • Dedicate a journal to record your experiences/practices until the Fall Equinox. We will be moving in high gear thru to the harvest, under the Sign of Leo a symbol of the Sun that raises the bounty of the Harvest. 
  • It’s up to you to choose what works for you in your own way. Take stock of your best Truths as Affirmations for the Dream of your Heart’s Desire. Put the sticky note on the bathroom mirror.
  • Drink water first thing in the morning, wash your hands, and say your prayers. Listen to a pure vibration – how you begin will guide you to the end.

I only became conscious of the Lion’s Gate a couple of years ago. I found myself doing hard things in a very easy and balanced way.  Harvest time is the perfect time for dreams to come true by the natural order of time. And, Harvest is the best time to  choose the Seeds of your Dreams to carry into the “Dreamtime of Winter.”

Write down what you are burning away for the Sacred fire on 4 Dog/OC, August 1. Then, prepare your seeds for your new dreams and make an offering on the Lion’s Gate. Plan your own sacred ceremony, or creation of art to remember.

The Lion’s Gate is the closest polar alignment to Earth’s true North/South, aligned for the Light of the Central Sun of the Milky Way Galaxy. Both the Light and Dark will be streaming into our atmosphere. If we’re focused on the Light we’ll receive the full power of the “pure energy” that enters Earth’s atmosphere.

8/18/2022            Kin 47                    8 Deer/MANIK Initiation, Spiritual Energy/Destiny of Mayan Priest

THIS IS THE VERY GOOD NEWS – 8 MANIK holds the Intention of Divine Justice for those who have dedicated themselves to the path of the Deer. The Power is doubled by the Year Bearer 11 Deer/MANIK, the one with the Divine Antennae to share the Light and Song of the Universe. Through the gift of Harmonic Resonance, others will be inclined to follow our example. We’ll have the Highest Light of Revelation and the Highest Mission and Purpose, to make a difference on behalf of the whole.

Be prepared to see a Transformation that reveals the first light of the next generation of the higher version of yourself. August will be a Major Life Change that you’ll remember as a “Before” and “After.”

Below are the rest of the dates through this round. Our Highest Ascension is aligned with the Spring Equinox this round, and the end of the Haab is March 31, 2023. The New Year Bearer will take over as 12 Road/EB – and Collective Experience of Human’s Highest Understanding. The Aztec sign is The Grass, a symbol of Human’s perennial Spirit and the Natural Time for the Grass to rise again. 

NOTE: We’ll complete the 2nd uinal on 1 Sun/AHAU, that will guide us through the first cycle of experience into the 3rd uinal of Movement. We’ll be on our way to the future before we reach September!

love, in lak’ech,


REMEMBER: A Seed knows the way to the Light is AWAY from the worldly gravity that holds us down. That’s how we make it through to the Light Above!


13 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA)

Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.

Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.

Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.

[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.
