THE TRECENA OF STORM/CAUAC: A RENEWAL AND REGENERATION OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
13 Dog/OC, Destiny Kin 91
On the 13th Tone of Ascension we are Offered a Higher Consciousness of our Self and the Truth of Answered Prayers. 13 Monkey/CHUEN, knows the Power of Love that is always on our side, like Dog/OC resides next to CHUEN. Together they manifest the Consciousness of Knowing the Power of Love, and realizing the Consciousness that we can make the choice to Love, beyond all Human reasons – for the good of the Whole.
A Divine Creator loves us because we are the Scion and the Highest Hope was that we might know our own Power of Love that becomes one in the Flow with a Power Divine. Human love is like a one-way street back to our Self Interest and Human Reasons. It’s impossible to see “perfection” in a Human of limitations. If we had to have a “good reason” to love EVERYONE, we’d be hard pressed to SEE it in ALL of us, ALL the time.
Aren’t there people that you feel are “impossible” to love? By human reason, there seems to be no good reason for some of us to be. Yet, we can all be used for the Divine Purpose to create Love. Sometimes we can learn our own Love the best from the worst example. When we can apply a Divine Meaning for all Human expressions, we can conceive a “human reason” to love all things. And when we Love and Forgive all the human things we can do, we cross a threshold for the Creation of a Higher Love. No matter the darkness we may see in another Human, it is the heaviest burden to carry – thinking there will never be a Time to Know we were Loved. Compassionate Love is the Highest Love of the Divine Feminine that we were created to bring into balance.
On Tone 13 we celebrate a Higher Concept of our own Possibilities. Like a Divine Graduation – we are Initiated by Higher Truths of Love. The Higher we see the Truth, the more it compels a major life change. Every Ascension can raise the very same Truth, only we see it in a more Divine Way. Our heart is healed through every sacrifice of Feeling the scale of Love within. The Divine Love we hold can be seen brighter and brighter, the more we FEEL the darkness. Our own limitations can convict our Heart to Reach Higher, Longer, to Try again, or Try something new, to Create the Highest Love we Imagine.
Monkey/CHUEN can see Love clearly as a Divine Commodity, the Beauty of our Human Life. Our limitations can be a beautiful thing too, when we Conceive the Truth that our “failures to Love” HURT. The Truth is, we don’t even want to see them or accept that limitation. It only hurts because we ARE convicted to Love. Monkey/CHUEN holds the Wisdom of Love as the Truth. The Monkey always reminds us to “not take our self so seriously.” It can Feel like the “end of the world” when we meet our own limits. “They made me do it.” Even our weakest defense reveals our Higher Intention of Love.
CHUEN resides in the West, the direction of the Unknown, holding ALL Possibility for the Creation of Love. CHUEN is the Weaver of Time that can rearrange the threads of experience in the tapestry of our Life, so the Story of our Life becomes a Masterpiece of Love. The beauty is found in the way that our Spirit held Love as the Highest Hope – the REAL Truth, whether we’re Remembering or Humanly Forgetting the possibilities.
Monkey/CHUEN is a day of mystical experiences, holding the Element of Water. Today, the whole power of Lightning from Above is invested in a Heart Below, to change thoughts (Air) of Love, into the Blessing of Rain – a Living Water we FEEL in our Heart as the Most Beautiful experience that Human can claim as the Truth.
The Raccoon of the Cherokee Tradition, like the Monkey, is a friendly trickster that can coax a smile. Our Light is a treasure within of Love that will always be. It’s carried by the matter of earth, the Human Body. The Raccoon knows it can all be cleaned up and seen for what it is. Through the gift of Living Water, we’ll see the Heart of Gold within. The Monkey and the Raccoon hold the Consciousness to apply the Wisdom of Love as One and the Whole Dream of Creation. There is nothing on Earth that wasn’t manifested for any other reason than to lead us to Love. We’d see it ALL the time, if it weren’t for the silly human tricks we pull when we are forgetting.
Today we can Feel the Truth that Forgiveness and Unconditional Love are Human’s only hope to Know it in the world below. Forgiveness is the only way to keep on facing the darkness within, until it is all burned away by a Divine Truth. Our greatest Power of Love is realized when we can see our Heart is convicted to learn a Higher Way to Love, and to Create the Love we see as a Beautiful Possibility shared through the Sacred Right of Choice.
The Monkey and Raccoon would laugh at our fear of never knowing the Truth of Love. The Truth is spoken by the “angel on our shoulder” for every single choice we make. If we’d keep our ears clean, maybe we could listen and HEAR it. With any sense, we’d follow the Choices that Divine Love guides us to make. A Spark within that never forgets the Truth of Love, is so close at hand. We don’t even have to “reach” to hear that Divine Voice. We don’t have to “conjure” a thing to know the Higher Ways.
It’s just by Human reason, we see the impossibilities to Love. When the answer is in the Voice from Above and as simple as listening for the next Wise thing to do. We create the Divine Trinity in Every Choice that human makes to go along willingly with the Inner Wisdom of Love.
Monkey shares the Wisdom to see our Love. Monkey shares the Divine Genius of Love as a Power of Creation. In every Sacred Choice we make for Love, we Create the Divine Trinity of Exponential Power. Monkey sees the Power of Consciousness to make the Choice that WILL ALWAYS end as a Creation of Beauty in our Life.
CHUEN also shares the Genius of Curiosity – that Believes Love is ALWAYS the Truth that lies beyond the darkness. Rising beyond a question of Love as a Truth, it’s only natural to become curious about all the ways it can be expressed by a Human Being. Even Fear is an expression of Love that we may be unable or unworthy to Know. Love is the One Truth that lies behind every heartbreaking moment. We know Love all the more through every limitation, when we know they can never change the Love that shines for us every day of our Life, and for ALL Life on Earth.
We can even claim the beauty in blaming one another for our own failures. Like children, “No, they did it first, it wasn’t MY fault.” That’s a CONVICTION of Love that “swears” I would never CHOOSE to do that! “They MADE me do it.” We wouldn’t feel so bad, if we saw the Truth that Love is everything we always hope to choose. That’s the Inner Beauty that the Monkey CAN see… and that WE can see, when we “get over our Self.” We might as well give up on an idea of Human’s creation of Perfection. Only the Sun and Mother Earth hold the eternal perfection of Love. Intentions are set by the New Moon, when full Light of the Sun has all been turned within… a Seed of Truth is buried in the darkness as a new Intention to remember Love that like a Seed has conceived a new identity – and a Higher way to live by the Truth of our Divine Design.
To all my relations, may we imagine the Magic of Love. May we claim a Truth that we are always “enough” and that there is no Higher Wisdom to learn from another, as important as our Own Truth of Love that WE conceive within. NO HUMAN ON EARTH is a GENIUS of Love or the end all resource. YOU are the most important EXPERT of your Life. QUESTION everything. Yours is the Highest Truth and the end-all authority of Your Time and Place. NO ONE but a Divine Authority knows Your Life better than You, along with the Next Higher Truth, the Higher Ground for a Dream you Loved and CHOSE to follow.
May we give thanks for the Storms and the Lightning to see the Truth that there IS Love in every Time and Place our heart reaches to Know by a Leap of Faith into the Unknown darkness within that holds every possibility to see we never claim it as our Intention. Every night we dream of a brighter future. Every morning our thoughts reach to know a new way so we can try again. LOVE IS the Truth within, and the Intention to Create it will be carried out beyond all Human reasons.

My gift for the Tzolk’in round is the “Tzolk’in Field Guide: A Daily Practice for Personal Discernment.” Volume 1 covers the first two seasons of the Tzolk’in round. The “Field Guide” is available to download from a link on the 13-day Trecena Guide Page.
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.
Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.
Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.
