1 Earth / CABAN – The Run for Our Life: Day 1 of 13

From mid December to March, the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti around Ndutu and the Ngorongoro conservation are alive with migrant herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles. During the calving seasons of late January to mid March over 80% of the wildebeest give birth given the abundant water available.

Greetings Beloved Kin,

All things were given their own way of Being with a Divine Order for reaching their highest meaning and purpose. The Tzolk’in is Human’s divine order for Time, written within the everyday thoughts we hold in common. When we track our own thoughts and follow, the offering within our Divine Design falls in synchronicity, where we know our Time and Place is exactly where we were meant to be.

Earth/CABAN is the clarion call to live with all our heart. The Cherokee day sign is the Heron, a creation that’s born to a perpetual life of migration. The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix. Now is the Time to rise from the ashes of our past. The signs are here for us to see in 2022, a year of second chances ordered by the Master Number 22. Number 22 is the symbol of Human’s Power to Create every Dream given from the Source of our Highest Inspiration. The power of the symbol is magnified by every repetition. CABAN (Ka bahn) holds Position 17, a number that resolves to 8. 8 is the symbol of abundance to infinity and eternal life. The Time is ordered in the 8th uinal, a higher intention for Time that represents Justice enforced by the Highest One in Harmony and Equity for the Whole.


The Elders say that you can change your life in 4 days of Sacred Ceremony. Beginning with 1 Earth/CABAN, we have 4 days left to complete the 8th uinal. The 9th uinal is marked by the highest number of Divine Trinity, the 3 x 3 that raises a Power of Creation by an exponential factor. The “X” marks the spot between the Highest Power Above and the Highest Power Below, an Intention to Create Love, the Beauty of Life. The Haab Year Bearer, 11 Deer/MANIK, has been showing us the way to dedicate our life and our consciousness to the Creator’s Will to fulfill a Divine Meaning and Purpose.

The glyph for CABAN illustrates the way to conceive the Highest Discernment of the Truth. The straight line from the East represents Human’s first thought of objective consciousness. Our first thought about everything is a discernment of “what it is.” That thought naturally turns to our imagination, the 2nd thought of discernment to “know what it means.” We try to make sense of “what it is” to complete a circle of understanding. That’s where thoughts can trail off if we don’t see “anything that matters.” EVERYTHING matters in the Creators Divine Design. To know the Highest Truth we have to make a leap of faith to consider a Divine Meaning and Purpose guided by the One Above. That’s when we capable to see the synchronicity of Time that’s Here and Now. Every step we take holding the Intention of Love is leading us to the Divine End.

The K’iche name is N’oj (n oh), a Sacred Word of Knowing. The legend of N’oj tells the story of a Divine Agent from above that brought Wisdom and Knowledge as a gift to Humanity. As the story goes, there was a gathering Above of those who would come forth to be chosen. A number of demi-gods came forward to campaign for the position. N’oj stood among the rest without a word to say. He was chosen for his humility and talent to offer his gifts of humility, to be seen equal with the rest. He came down to share Divine Knowledge and when his time was over he returned and was raised to a demi-god, a messenger of Light. According to the Mayan myths, the “Ancient Aliens” are Angels among us who carry out the Will of the Creator to share the Gifts of Knowing. Now is the Time to Know a Divine Meaning and Purpose for everything we’ve witnessed from the beginning of this Tzolk’in round. We will Know if we apply the Vigilance to Look to See the Creator’s Highest Intention, Life, Light, and Happiness held in the Balance for the One and the Whole. We are exactly where we’re supposed to be if we’ve chosen to count every Day as a Sacred Event.

May we heed the call to rise from the ashes and Live with All our Heart. There are green pastures waiting where Love flows like living water to bless our Heart and Soul.

love, in lak’ech, Debra

The next 13 days…

Greetings Kin,

Earth/CABAN takes us on the “ride of our  life.” Her movement manifests an order of Time with Meaning and Purpose. Humans have to have a beginning and an end to See and Acknowledge the Truth that lies within. In the 9th uinal, we’ll know the Cause and Effect of Divine Justice that is ordered from Above.

Life depends on the nourishment of the Seed to take root in Holy Ground. Human’s Seed has to make a Choice for everything. Even the body’s hunger waits for a human choice. This is a Time ordered to heed every call that guides a divine purpose from within.

Love is the reason our own Happiness is hard to choose. Caring “what someone else will thinks” IS part of our Divine Design. It takes two in Right Relationship to manifest the end of Love. Our Seed for a new life was born free of karma with the Sacred Right of Choice to reach our own highest end.

It’s time to look beyond our “potential” to the steps we’ll be moved to take toward the Dream that was written in our Heart. It’s time to say “no” to everything that stands in our way. Knowing our Self and the Truth of our Heart’s desire was the Answer to our Prayer. We don’t have to go along anymore. We nourish the Life of Who We Are by saying “yes” to what we Love.

Born with no obligation, those born Seed often Choose Freedom for the Whole, as caretakers of the disadvantaged. We’ll run with the pack that’s reaching for the same end to help one another along the way. That’s the way of Right Relationship as an Offering for a Divine Purpose that’s carried out as a Sacred Choice.

The next 13 days…

Earth/CABAN holds the Power of an Earthquake to shake us to the core. You can’t run from an Earthquake. You find a place to hang on. CABAN is the clarion call to make a run for our Life, standing on the Truth of who we’ve chosen to be. In the 3rd season of the Tzolk’in we are manifesting the blooms on our Tree of Life. They are the first sign of the fruit we will bear that holds the Seed for another life, that will grow and expand even higher than this.

“Light” defines a cycle of Divine Inspiration. In the darkness of Seed/KAN we saw the offerings of Life, and how it Feels on the way to Becoming. Now it’s Time to Know the Dream as it was conceived from Above. The Creator’s Divine Inspiration will be our Clarion Call to “Seize the Time of our Life.” The Beauty of Mother Earth will be our muse for the Beauty we are destined to be.

8 is the Number of “pure spirit” holding the Intention of Divine Justice. The 8th uinal is the Higher Octave that rings the same note with the One Below. In the 8th uinal, we Know our Divine Justice by the Truth of what we Love. When it’s tied a Promise, we’ll Know what our Divine Justice will be. 4 Sun/AHAU is the Destiny Kin of Humanity, marking the day that Humanity was planted on Earth to share the Light from Above. 4 Sun/AHAU completes the Balance of Divine Justice. The 9th uinal reveals the Creation that is always “finished” by the One Above. In the 9th uinal we’ll see the Big Picture that reveals our Divine Destiny was ordered from the beginning.

Global Burner days fall in the center of each season to mark the Time of a release of residual energy. We’ll dust off the ashes of our past. The Mayan priest carries out the Sacred Fire Ceremony on behalf of the whole to restore Right Relationship. Global Burners are always marked by the 4th Tone of Stability. A load will be lifted from our Heart and Mind. 4 Sun/AHAU is a symbol of endings and beginnings, the Mayan date that marked December 21, 2012, the end and new beginning of the Mayan calendar.

Earth/CABAN is the Call to our Heart’s Migration to Love. Every living thing was given the feelings to know “It’s Time.” 1 Earth/CABAN begins Our Time to Know. Knowing is a gift beyond Faith and Believing. Like the Serpent, we’ll stand on the Feeling that doesn’t require any further evidence.

The Elders say Mother Earth is the first enduring gift of the Creator, the Offering to “Be Alive in a Living World.” We’ll know we’re really living when we leap into the unknown.

The Aztec name for the “lord of the day” is Ollin. K’inich Ahau is the face at the center who’s word stands as the final authority of what SHALL BE. On either side are the claws of the Divine Mother that will tear away at the dead flesh that stands in the way. They are the Heart of Sky and the Heart of Earth. The Ollin symbol marks 20 Divine Times of Knowing that are ordered from Above.  “This is an auspicious day for the active principle, a bad day for the passive principle. Ollin is a day of the purified heart, signifying those moments where human beings may perceive what they are becoming.” Aztec Calendar

In the 8th and 9th uinals we’re moved by a Hand of Divine Agency. CABAN moves us like the wave we’ve been waiting for to live and move with all our heart.

We can stabilize our course by taking the journey in legs of 4 days of Sacred Ceremony. It’s easier to remember the Intention at each new beginning. This is a very good time to let go of a habit. A stronghold can be shaken loose by Two Hands of Divine Agency. Take care of the Human Being. We can stay the course to see what happens in 4 days.

On Tone 1 we begin at Peace in Unity with the One. This is a good day for a Holiday and the choice to spend Time with Mother Earth. It’s a day to honor the Offering of a Living World that witnesses the Truth of our Love in all the directions. You may notice that the living creations around us are watching us the same way as we watch them carrying out their ways. Look for the Truth up close and far away. May we make direct contact with the Mother to feel the Peace she can bring, and walk barefoot to hear the sound of our bones beating a path to our future.

To all my relations, may we give thanks for the Freedom of Conscious. May we pray for one another around the world for the Dream of Freedom on behalf of the Whole. May we be like the Seed that isn’t under any obligation, but will rise on behalf of a Divine Cause, the Meaning and Purpose for Life.

in lak’ech, I am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN

I’m grateful for the Divine Inheritance that’s shared by every tradition that reaches to Know the Way to Love as the Golden Rule.  


Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide Page for the “Tzolk’in Field Guide: A Daily Practice for Personal Discernment.” My gift for the Tzolk’in round offers an overview for each 13-day trecena and the aspects of each day of the Tzolk’in round. 

The page also offers a link to resources for your own practice of counting the days to conceive your own discernment of the Meaning of Time.

NEW SEASON – VOLUME 2: Tzolk’in Seasons 3 and 4 (PUBLISHED SEPTEMBER 20, 2020)


1 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement and perpetual motion, Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.

The Northern Cross is referred to as the backbone of the Milky Way. The constellation Cygnus is the Swan. EarthSky.org

The Swan is a symbol of Transformation from the “ugly duckling” into a thing of beauty.
