THE TRECENA OF STORM/CAUAC: CLAIMED BY THE LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
September 21, 2022 (09/21/2022)
3 Crocodile/IMIX (ee meesh), Destiny Kin 81
Greetings Beloved Kin,
Tone 1 reflects the Intention of transformation for each trecena, the Galactic Week of 13 days. The trecena of 1 Storm/CAUAC relates to the “storms of life” that hold the potential to offer the Blessing of Living Water to restore our Soul.
The Aztec name for CAUAC is Quiahuitl (Rain, ruled by Tlaloc, He Who Makes Things Sprout, god of rain, lightning and thunder. This trecena represents a time of alternating drought and flood. There is either not enough or too much. It is a time of hardship and suffering. The rainmaker stands alone atop the mountain, holding firesticks and a medicine bundle: help will be offered but may not be accepted. Some will have prepared for this time but not enough to care for everyone in need. These are good days to pursue solitude and learning; bad days to count on others. Day Cipactli (Crocodile, known as Imix in Maya) is governed by Tonacatecuhtli, Lord of Nurturance.
The glyph for IMIX represents the Mother’s breast, or a jar of the Mother’s milk. The glyph for Earth/CABAN can help you understand the whole meaning. The straight lines that curve at the end are the same as the lines that represent Human thoughts of objective consciousness. Our first thought about anything is the linear thought that discerns “what it is.” On the CABAN glyph it turns next into the line that turns in circles and trails off a the end – Human’s second thought that turns straight to the imagination to know “what it means.” The CABAN glyph reflects the 3rd thought as the rising circles that completes a Whole Discernment of the Truth. The circles represent reaching beyond the imagination to Discern a “Divine Meaning and Purpose.” The IMIX glyph leaves human’s imagination out of the whole picture and turns straight to the Heart of the Mother for the Divine Truth. IMIX offers the nourishment of a primordial Mother.
Governed by the “God of Nurturance,” we can compare IMIX to the Hebrew Name, El Shaddai.
The Tzolk’in calendar presents a dynamic discernment of Truth to be applied as Divine Wisdom for our life experiences. We hold the Spark of the Divine as the Holy Spirit within. Each Day Sign is the archetype, the Holy Armor to be transformed into our Divine Nature. The Ascending cycle of the Tzolk’in is Star/LAMAT. Our Divine Destiny is to become a Personification of the Creator’s Light, symbolized by the 2nd Greatest Light, Venus the symbol of Beauty that shines in the darkness and the light. We are changed when we learn to shine through the darkness of the unknown, as we shine when we “see the Light.”
If we skip all our Human imaginings and go straight to the Divine Source of Truth, we KNOW. We KNOW how the Truth Feels. And we KNOW when the Truth is hidden. We don’t imagine what we don’t want to see. We KNOW where we Feel at home. That’s where we must choose to belong. Our Heart will never lead us wrong. Forgiveness allows all things their own Time and Place to be.
The Haab month is CHEN (Cave or Well). That’s when the wooden effigies made the month before were delivered to the shrines with offerings to “activate” them. After, the artisans were honored with a great celebration. WE are the wooden effigies, applying the Art of CHUEN to carve our self into the image of the Highest One. When we bring our Offering of Forgiveness as, God’s Promise is to change us through Living Water so we can be changed into IMIX, As Above, So Below.
This is Time to go into our Cave and turn to the Well of Love to Celebrate what God can do. No other Human Being can fulfill our needs. Only the Heart of Sky is the Almighty One that will always restore our Soul. Turning to the One Above on our knees, we will always Belong and the Truth will always shine the way. May we celebrate the Time of the Equinox, remembering that the heaven is opening to shower us with Beauty, Light, and Living Water.
Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. Through the Sound of Movement or a Dissemination of Communication, we create a New Vibration in the Universe. The Tone and Frequency are determined by the Reason we move. When we bring a Vibration to Life, it will follow a course from the beginning to the end, held in its same back-and-forth, direct way forward.
A trecena of “Light” will call us to move by a Divine Inspiration, the Feeling that a Dream we Love is True. The One Above will make it come True. The Dreams that will always reach their Divine End, are the Dreams of Love, dedicated in Service on behalf of the Whole. Our Light ripples through the whole when our own Miracles come True. Through our own intention to generate our own Love as a Gift between us, the Dreams we Love so much become the Spirit’s Movement by Intention. When we reach for a Divine Meaning and Purpose from the beginning, the 2 Below becomes a 3 of Trinity. An Offering of Human Will to the Divine Intention of Spirit unite as an Exponential Power to move us.
Red and Blue Day Signs are Kin of “Light” – incoming Inspiration from Above. The “light” of Divine Inspiration and the “dark” of Human’s application to an experience rotate on every scale. Today is a “light” day, in a “light” trecena, and a “light” uinal. Crocodile/IMIX is the Alpha Light on Earth as the Divine Feminine, holding the aspects of Divine Discernment and Compassionate Love.
The Sun/AHAU, the Omega, is the Divine Masculine that shares a stroke of genius with the world below with Human’s mind of Reason – the Divine Masculine Below. IMIX is the Alpha, the Divine Feminine of the Heart and our Emotions, meant to Conceive the Highest Manifestation for the Love of the Whole. Neither is meant to rule the other, but like the Yin/Yang, embrace a Balance in Perfect Harmony.
A Lightning brighter than the Sun, is sharing a Light Bright enough to See the Polarity from One Extreme to the Other so that we can direct an Intention to Balance what works best in Harmony and Equity. IMIX reflects the Light from Above to Below, with Divine Dreams and Wild Imagining. The Crocodile is the Primordial Mother that knew us in the womb, and was the Witness to our first thoughts. Days marked by the Crocodile, are the Dawning of a New Creation, a womb of Love prepared for a New Life To Be. IMIX is simply the Beginning of all things new in the world.
THE 5TH UINAL OF EMPOWERMENT
The Higher Intention (uinal) of a Divine Creator is a cycle that raises the Faith, “I Can.” The number 5 represents a Force that lies at the Center of the Cube as an Intelligent Organizing Force that manages Resources for every Application. We could compare it to the Pineal Gland, the central processor that is Influenced by photons, energy particles that excite ALL the Forces of Life. On the scale of Human’s experience of Life, it represents the Inherent thoughts we hold to gather all the resources for a creation before we lay a hand to the Dream we imagine. Throughout this 20-day cycle we will receive the Light of all our Ways and Means to make a Dream come True in the world Below. The CAUAC trecena will raise us to 13 Monkey/CHUEN, the Answered Prayer of Knowing we are Divine Creators who CAN create the life of our Dreams. The 5th uinal is completed by 9 Sun/AHAU, an Intention Completed by the Omega. The Holy, Holy, Holy “Light” to Know on a Grand Scale, that Creation is the very Meaning of our Life, and a Divine Light Above WILL lead the way to Divine Understanding.
The Dawn of our Awakening was the moment we realized we weren’t just One of the Whole. The sound in the womb of our Mother’s voice broke through our drifting thoughts, and we realized “I Am.” We were presented with the first mystery, “Who AM I?” The Divine Feminine answered, “Anything your Heart Desires.”
Crocodile/IMIX is a day called for the application of Sense and Wisdom. The Light from Above will be “wild ideas” out of the blue. It’s not a day to act on them, but to be consciousness of the Truth that “thoughts DO come out of the blue.” The Highest One will share everything we need to create a Divine Life. We are transformed into the image when we nurture the whole. A Mother has the duty to Love her child to the end.
The One of Compassionate Love can ease our mind and calm our thoughts. In the darkness of our own Sanctuary, we can Feel like the Peace we find in our Mother’s arms.
Today we are inspired by a Dream we want to Move on. Tone 3 intends us to Move or Disseminate the Thoughts of a Divine Intention. This is a Day to Offer Voice and Sound to the Offering of our Prayers. We will KNOW the Truth we Feel within to discern the Wisest way to begin. Reach beyond what you would imagine the Truth to be, to the Truth you Know when you kneel to ask the One Above.
IMIX is known as the “Mother of Innovation.” We can be inspired by a necessity. If you think, “I wish someone would fix this.” It’s a Divine idea and from your highest perspective you will holds a Power to carry it out.
Our Human ego is inclined to reach for something BIG that will be seen by the whole. Yet, in our Mother’s arms, it’s just as Divine to reach for the small things that can fit the size of our Hand. Creation begets Creation.
The Reasons we Move are more important than the Way. When we follow the ways of the One Above, our Heart will know by the Truth of Answered Prayers that God has a way, and we will reach the end.
We can start small, like a child who turns to the Mother for everything. She will Nourish every Divine Dream so it will Grow to Maturity.
in lak’ech, I am another you,
Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN
MEDICINE BUNDLE: You can bury your dreams for Mother Earth to grow as a Seed of Intention. Sacred Objects are stored and kept in red cloth when not in use on the altar. A small bundle can be created as the gift for Mother Earth. The Elders taught us to include the cornmeal and sacred herbs. The power is manifested by the Time we invest in the thoughts of its meaning and purpose, to say Thank You. All things Given to the Mother are changed into another Life to serve the whole.

3 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.
Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan is the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth. The beginning of each new era, this star in Orion appears with the rising Sun, heralding the creation of a new World cycle. Cherokee, IMIX- Totem-Dragon. The energy to understand all things sacred; creation energy, connection for visions, to learn the mysteries of the Universal Knowledge. The dragon carries the source energy of life, revered in ancient cultures for power and wisdom.
