Carried by a Heart of Compassion and Directed by the Heart of Sky

The K’iche Day Sign, N’oj (n ‘oh), is a Sacred Word that means “a knowing” as a Gift that is Offered from the Heart of Sky. Days marked by Ollin (the Aztec sign) represent Time when we can see who we are becoming. N’oj is the Identity Imprint. We know who we are intended to be by the Ones that claim us as their own. A Divine Mother Earth carries us on her back, and everything we can be is shared from the Heart of Sky.


Within the Seed, by Debra Malmos

We are the Seed that was fired through the Dreamtime of Winter. Who we will be is already written within and consecrated as a New “I Am.” A Divine Mother will carry us to the TIme and Place where we will be planted in the Spring. The Truth on Earth was written for each Season as a planetary experience. The Haab calendar is Earth’s Time that holds a Divine Meaning and Purpose for the whole.

In this time, we don’t have to know anything more than who we dreamed to be. The Dream was given from Above, and the Heart of Earth will carry us until our Seed is ready to plant our feet on Mother Earth. We don’t have to worry, only take in the scenery. We were given a place of Beauty. When it’s time, the  Creator will inspire us through another clarion call of Spirit.

It’s Time to go along for the ride and give thanks for the Divine Provision. Moved by the One that carries us, and the One that shares the Sacred Gift of Knowing, we are under the care of a Divine Agency. Bless the Earth, and all the Stars Above that are leading us to Time and Place where we belong, and where our Spirit will know as “home.”

By Human limitation we are inclined to ask, “are we there yet?” We can’t push time. Relax and enjoy the ride. Take in the experiences of beauty that are “here and now” when you don’t have to do a thing but wait until the Divine Time that’s already ordered from Above. Play “travel bingo.” In the days of my childhood on the trip to Grandma’s house, we played “Hawk Flying.” We called “hawk flying” for one point, and “hawk sitting” for two points. We could make up our own game with point values for butterflies and other beauties of nature that were placed just for us to see, along the way.

Keep a travel journal of “God sightings” and color the images that will help you remember, the signs and synchronicities of the Creator’s Time. Document “the time of your life.”

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

Wisdom shared by Ian Xel Lungold –

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

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.

A GOOD DAY TO: Thank Mother Earth for all her gifts.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. 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 Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hail)

(Wisdom/CIB shared the symbol of the stars in the Big Dipper that points to Polaris, the North Star. Earth/CABAN shares the symbol of the Southern Cross the coordinate to find the direction due south.)

Polaris or the North Star is a star that appears almost directly above the Earth’s rotational axis. As the Earth turns, every other star seems to spin around the axis, tracing out a circle in the sky, but the North Star appears to stand still. But no matter what time of night or what season it is, Polaris leads a traveler due north.

The Southern Cross, Alpha-Crucis – is the coordinate from which a traveler in the southern hemisphere can find their direction due south. Together the poles Above and Below mark the Axis Mundi, the Center of the Tree of Life and the One Dream our lives center around, a Balance of Love created by Divine Design, As Above, So Below.

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.
