THE TRECENA OF CROCODILE/IMIX: DAWN OF A NEW AWAKENING
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
9 Offering/MULUC, Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA, Destiny Kin 9
March 28, 2023 (03/28/2023)
2 Wayeb – The 3nd Day of the last month of 5-days by the Haab count of the North (days number 0, 1, 2, 3, 4)
Greetings Beloved Kin,
Offering/MULUC is the symbol of the “Christ Spirit,” the archetype of the “wounded healer” who carried out the mission of a Savior through an Offering of Forgiveness. The glyph illustrates the One Drop of our Spirit of the Whole, raised up by the Light of the Creator’s Love. The Truth we Feel sends Ripples through the Whole. MULUC holds the power to heal humanity on a massive scale.
In synchronicity, our “hard road” is aligned in the Season of Lent that leads to Easter, April 9, 2023. Easter is calculated by the Moon’s cycle, falling on the 1st Sunday after the 1st Full Moon after the Spring Equinox.
A lot of Human effort has gone into the Intention of casting shame and taboo upon those who look to the Stars to discern the meaning of Time. Many calendars that have been created to account for Time. Yet, the Moon is still the accurate measure for the most Holy Day by Christian tradition.
The Moon’s calendar is seen by the Whole on Mother Earth from her orbit that circles the Sun. A Creator who shares our First and Last breath is the final Authority who knows when “the work” of our Life is finished.
The Maya acknowledge the Creator as the Lord of Time. We can change the count, and even the hours of the day, though the Creator’s Word will stand for ALL Time. We’re always right on schedule, if we choose to follow the Creator’s guided-journey to Love.
Looking back at the journals that came before, this journal was “finished” on 7 Deer/MANIK, paused with an intention to “begin again.” I started with a goal of 260 days, though I carried on. A synchronicity of Time marked my pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam. After I’d arrived I discovered that the end of the 4 days of Sacred Ceremony marked a count of 1,111 daily journals. Years later I found I was approaching 2,222. I was sure the count would mark an even higher synchronicity of experience. Days before the end, Spirit told me it was time to stop. I didn’t want to do anything perfectly anymore. I began again on 9 Offering/MULUC. Carrying out something perfectly was not the intention for the journal. My mission was to prove that “alone, all by our self” a Divine Creator can transform us and share the Divine Mysteries of our Life.
Tone 9 is a symbol of a Creation that is “finished.” Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the Big Picture. We’re inclined to step back after we’ve finished a work of creation to see it from someone else’s perspective. There is said to be much suffering to bear when we fail to complete this step for lack of Divine Insight. When we’re carrying out the Intentions of our Ego, we don’t like to see. The only way to learn to follow the ways of our Divine Nature is to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.”
The “Christ Spirit” walked in everyone’s shoes. No one could say the Savior didn’t know the trouble we’ve seen. The “wounded healer” was cast out by a human family. Even his best friends turned their back, lest they be tarnished by association. No one defended him at his trial. He was offered trick questions in the moments given to defend himself. It didn’t matter if the answers upheld the truth. They washed their hands of him. They watched as he bore the stripes. No one helped him bear the cross. In his most vulnerable moments he was mocked and shamed. Whatever worldly possessions were left were divided by a “game of chance” at his feet. In the darkest hours he was left for dead and carried to his tomb. By Human intentions he was intended to bear the “sin of his guilt” forever. Only his Mother followed his journey to Calvary.
If you’ve suffered the “hard road” the Journey was your Divine Road to Calvary. If you’ve carried on and still live to tell the story, the Creator’s Highest Blessing is the Sacred Exchange for the Offering. Through our suffering we claim the Gift of Compassionate Love.
Offering/MULUC guides the Creator’s purpose to bear the pain as an Offering of a Savior. MULUC is the Creator’s Divine Way of Giving Back and Paying Forward. There’s no greater offering than to Save another through the Offering of Human forgiveness. A Savior that came before, paid the whole price so we could Rise Again. 9 Offering/MULUC marks the Time when “the work is finished.”
11 Deer/MANIK may have moved on, though we’re ALWAYS and FOREVER guided by the All-in-One. The Sun is shining for us and we are receiving the Light of the 11-year Solar Cycle that produces the Solar Winds of the Creator’s Breath. As Above, So Below.
MULUC is a symbol of the Moon, our Emotions, and Water Everywhere – from the cosmos to our own tears. MULUC is a day to honor our own Feelings and the Feelings of the Whole. Feelings drawn through the Heart is the way to Know the Truth that we won’t forget. MULUC offers a Divine Healing to our Human Emotions when we are willing to make the sacrifice. When we turn our back on the world, we’re drawn to the Only Witness who knows the Truth in our Heart. We are reborn from the ashes, and the past will fall away when the Creator shares his Name.
We never have to suffer again when we know a Divine Reason to make the sacrifice. Through the Choice to Forgive, we become the Personification of the Creator’s Light.
The Full Pink Moon reflects the Time when we are reaching for a New Life. The Full Worm Moon that came before, offered a breath of Air to the Earth Below, and room to expand and grow the roots of Love that will stand for us when we reach the Light Above.
Northern Native Americans call April’s full moon the pink moon after a species of early blooming wildflower. In other cultures, this moon is called the sprouting grass moon, the egg moon, and the fish moon.
April’s Full Pink Moon
April’s full moon is widely known as the Full Pink Moon, even though it doesn’t actually turn pastel pink as the name suggests. The Full Pink Moon’s name comes from the abundance of moss phlox, a common little pink flower that typically begins to spread across the ground in early spring. With that said, this creeping phlox is not the only thing that begins blooming during the Full Pink Moon.
In many Native American tribes, April’s full moon is associated with the bustling life and vibrant growth of spring. In Sioux culture, it’s named after the sprouting of red grass. The Comanche tribe called it the New Spring Moon, and both the Tlingit and Sioux tribes referred to it as the Budding Moon, after the new plants that begin to bud and sprout during spring. The Cherokee tribe even called it the Flower Moon (though that name is also sometimes used to refer to May’s full moon), and celebrated it for the growth of useful medicinal plants and magical herbs.
At the same time, April is a time when rivers and streams begin to fully thaw. Accordingly, the Shoshone tribe named April’s full moon the Full Melting Moon, and the Arapaho tribe called it the Moon Where Ice Breaks in the River. It was also known as the Fish Moon because of the fish that would begin to swim upstream during this time. The Cherokees believed that flowing water was under the control of a spirit called the Long Man, and so would perform rituals to honor him during the Full Pink Moon. An example of a ritual like this was the Knee Deep Dance, based off the movements of the Water Frog. The Assiniboine tribe also called April’s full moon the Frog Moon. (Read the whole story on MoonGiant.com.)
The Winds of March come in “like a Lion and go out like a Lamb.” April brings the showers of Living Water in the Spring.
The Full Flower Moon follows, marks the Wesak Festival by Eastern Tradition. This year, the festival takes place in Sri Lanka on May 5, 2023. (See additional dates by Location.) The Wesak is celebrated as the day Buddha was born, the day he was enlightened, and the day that he passed away. It marks the “Highest Watermark of Spirit,” when the Light of Illumination is poured out to all water below.
All the heavenly signs point to an Abundant Harvest in the Fall. Like the Flowers, we can fix our eyes on the Sun as it crosses the sky and remember there is a Divine Meaning for ALL Time. We were given the legs to stand by the Word that is a Divine Promise.
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
May we claim there is no such thing as a coincidence. The Haab New Year will be guided by 12 Road/EB, a time ordered for “The Grass” (Malinalli by Aztec tradition) to rise again. The Aztec call it a time when Divine Will favors the oppressed, and there is no favor shown to the oppressor. We are being prepared to Rise Again.
There’s no higher place we can go from the top of the pyramid, except as the Spirit that is drawn by a Hand Above from a Sanctuary within.
The Cherokee day sign is The River that follows the course of least resistance back to the Sea. All our worldly matter falls away at the Delta as we are reunited with the Living Water of every generation.
MULUC is a day to offer a blessing to the Element of Water, and to pray for the Blessing of Clean Water on behalf of the whole.
in lak’ech, i am another you

PS. The Moon and Mars crossed paths in the night. Mars can stir up our emotions. If we’re willing to sacrifice our Ego, MULUC can restore our equilibrium.
THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE
I’m grateful for the Time that is given to transform the darkness into Light. I’m grateful for every experience that offers a Divine Reason to die to the world so we can Live Again in the Truth of the Light.
A river delta is a landform shaped like a triangle, created by deposition of sediment that is carried by a river and enters slower-moving or stagnant water. This occurs where a river enters an ocean, sea, estuary, lake, reservoir, or (more rarely) another river that cannot carry away the supplied sediment. The Ganges Delta in India and Bangladesh is the largest delta in the world, and one of the most fertile regions in the world. Wikipedia

9 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
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.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.

This blog post is very informative about the Full Pink Moon and its significance in different cultures. I found it interesting how the moon’s cycle is used to calculate Christian holidays like Easter. I have a question about the Cherokee day sign, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA. Can you explain more about how water is used as an offering in Maya baptism and purification ceremonies?
Thank you Ann – The priests and elders are the ones qualified to teach the Maya rituals as they were passed down. Though every ritual and ceremony is about the intention and meaning you invest in it. I choose the medicine path because my first teacher said – don’t try to emulate me, but create your own myths, that their traditional ways were proven and worthy to learn until you created your own ways. Casakin.org offers teaching from a Mayan priest. The most basic idea is to be reverent – give thanks for the blessing of water, ask permission for it to be used for a sacred purpose, call on your highest angels and creator and the grandfathers and grandmothers for help in carrying it out in an honorable way, and share your meaning and purpose. It’s so helpful to be guided by your own witness of the way the Mayan priest carries it out. I hope that helps. much love, in lak’ech, Debra
I’ve corrected the Haab date – this is the 3rd day of the 5-day month (2 Wayeb). Debra
