13 Eagle / MEN – Ascension: Day 13

Greetings  Beloved Kin,

The Intention of the Night/AKBAL trecena is to lift the veil of a Mystery that is the Truth of our Dreams. In our Dreams we exist in a realm Above in Communion with a Divine Creator that speaks to us through the Signs and Symbols of our Dreams. The Book of Revelations includes the Visions that St John received in his Dreams. Our Dreams are Truths that are intended to be Unseen Mysteries, only to be revealed as Truth that’s Seen when it’s the Creator’s Divine Time for everyone to know. We were prepared to know what is intended to be hidden through the Wisdom of the Jaguar.

A Divine Creator’s  mysteries revealed as Dreams we Understand (ie. know exactly what they mean) is hidden knowledge. By Human Nature, we want to know everything. Then, our Ego wants to share everything we know. There is such a thing as knowing too much for our own good. Those are the mysteries that  are not meant to be revealed, but held under a cover of stealth until it’s Divine Time, when the Creator reveals the Truth.

Our Ascension from the Night/AKBAL trecena is knowing what was revealed in our Dreams that’s only for us to know. To know the Divine Mysteries, the Truth Known to the Highest One, we need the Wisdom to preserve the Truth that’s intended to be hidden beyond the veil. The Elders said that we are not intended to run and share our Spiritual Experiences, but to “hold the power” of knowing for a time until we Understand what they mean. By their nature of signs and symbols, no one else will understand. They didn’t see the signs and we can’t convey the signs we only understood through the memories of our own Dreams. It’s the same with Divine Inspiration, when it comes to “holding your power.” Did you ever have a wild idea that felt like pure genius, only to share it with someone else who “rains on your parade?” They diminish the experience, and we begin to question what we KNEW. We can lose the Vision of a Dream that was meant to come true. The good news is the Creator will save it until we’re prepared to know it again, and hold the Vision until the Truth becomes self-evident.

If you had a vision in your AKBAL Dreams, hold it close to your heart and “more shall be revealed.” The intention of the Light is to guide you through the darkness to the end of your dreams. Walk in stealth by the Light that was revealed from beyond the veil.


Orion in the Winter sky over El Castillo, the Tzolk’in calendar pyramid. (The Orion Nebula lights the sword under Orion’s belt.)

The Cherokee name is The Hearth, the Light of a Sacred Fire Above where the Ancestors, Guides, Guardian Angels, and the Legions of Light stir the embers of a Torch that will light the way. The Hearth is a symbol of M42, the Orion Nebula, the birthplace of Stars in Orion. It lies just below the belt as one of the brightest objects in the sky and one of the most explored regions of the heavenly vault for the mysteries it reveals. It’s considered by many traditions to be our birthplace as the closest and most visible Constellations.

The Baroque illustration by Johannes Hevelius (28 January 1611 – 28 January 1687) shows Orion as a mighty hunter. The raised arm usually is holding a club, but sometimes is shown holding a sword. Image Credit: Firmamentum Sobiescianum sive Uranographia

This round of the Tzolk’in falls in synchronicity with the time Orion is most visible in the Winter skies. (See Sources Below for where to see it, and why it is most visible in the winter.) The Elders call the Winter the season of the Dreamtime, Time set apart for visions that empower the Seed of a New Dream that is planted in the Spring. The Creator’s Truth is spoken on every scale we turn to for a discernment of the Truth.

Definition: Dreams (plural noun)
1. a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep. “I had a recurrent dream about falling from great heights”
2. a cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal. “I fulfilled a childhood dream when I became champion”

AKBAL intended to raise the Dreamer that believes our Dreams are the Truth. The symbols of 1/11 and 11:11 (11 Reed/BEN), was a synchronicity in Time to wake up to the Truth that Dreams are the “Voice of the Creator” that speaks to us through our Dreams.

13 Eagle / MEN

13 Eagle/MEN, (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI), Destiny Kin 195

Master Number 13:13
January 13 (01/13) and Tone 13 reflect the “Master Number” 13:13. Number 13 is the symbol of theurgy, the power we were given through our rituals and sacred ceremonies to all upon the Creator for Divine Intervention. Our Ascension marks the Time we Know that “God WILL provide.” All our Gifts of Knowing are for the purpose of applying the Truth for the Wisdom to “know the way.” Divine Gifts are not ours to USE for Human reasons. They are intended to be left in the Hands of a Divine Authority. When we need to Know, or when there’s a Divine Reason to share the hidden Truth, we’ll know it’s a Divine Meaning and Purpose guided from Above. (Remember, Truth makes Common Sense that doesn’t leave any lingering questions.)

Eagle/MEN is the nahaul with the Gift of Vision to see the future. The Eagle doesn’t see the whole picture of the end, but it sees the Light to Know the way. The Creator marks the spot for our Divine Destination. Like our own North Star, we can navigate by the Light of Truth.

Eagle/MEN is the nahaul that flies in closest proximity to the higher realms and is intended to provide the service of an Intermediary. No one else can tell us the Truth that’s intended for us to know, they can only point us in a direction where we an find it for our self. We aren’t intended to follow someone else’s inspiration. The Creator provides OUR Truth for Knowing.

The Eagle resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown future. The Element of Water reflects the Truth that our Spirit knows the Truth from the Divine Knowledge that speaks to our heart as the ah-ha moment – the Gift of Comprehension that weaves all the pieces and parts into a new and functioning whole.

There were lots of pieces and parts of Truth shared through the Light of our AKBAL Dreams. Our Ascension is the Time to celebrate every one, Knowing they can all be woven together with Time to become Our Truth that makes Common Sense. This is a good time to write down the Dreams and Signs that were an inspiration to you, no matter how small they may be. Keep the journal close to your chest and look back to it from time to time in the future. You might be surprised when the meaning becomes as clear as a bell. ASK for the Truth to become clear, and ASK for the Creator’s help in keeping your dreams to yourself, so more CAN be revealed.

The Cherokee calendar calls the Day Sign of the trecena that follows the Guardian of the cycle that came before. Wisdom/CIB is their totem for Night/AKBAL. The Owl is the mystic ferryman that holds a torch aloft to cross to the Truth on the “other side.” 1 Wisdom/CIB begins the 4th Season of the Tzolk’in. The Owl shares the Vision to see our way through the darkness of the Unknown, sharing the Wisdom for our Highest Illumination. If the student is ready, the Master appears to teach the way to apply the Truth for the Highest Good of the Whole.

“Then it clearly manifested, while they were praying that by the dawn, the man must appear. So then they arranged the creation and the trees growing, and the creeping wild plants, and the life was born and the human creation. It was arranged like that in the darkness and in the night by the Heaven’s Heart, named Hurricane.”
– from the Popol Vuh

in lak’ech, I am another you,

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

The Jaguar’s Earth Magic of  Gratitude:
I’m grateful that we were offered the Gift of Consciousness to conceive the Truth, and to KNOW the Creator will share Divine Mysteries. All we have to do is Ask, Listen, and Follow the ways of Stealth so that the whole can discover the same Truth of Knowing they CAN Know the Truth of Everything we NEED to know to live and love to the ends of our Dreams. 


My gift for the Tzolk’in round is the “Tzolk’in Field Guide: A Daily Practice for Personal Discernment.”

13 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)

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.

Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.

Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Eagle’s symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation. Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions, cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth, a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance.

[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.
