Greetings Beloved Kin,

An unexpected thunderstorm and heavy rain moved through quickly last night. The blessing always clears the air and provides the Nitrogen, the building blocks for Life to Grow.

All things that move generate electromagnetic energy. Thoughts are also electromagnetic. They become thoughtforms of electrical energy. Their force is determined by the Power of the Passion that is attached to the Intention. Passing negative thoughts leave their residue in the Air. The residue can be gathered around the energy of our own thoughts, like the dust that collects on a TV screen.


The blessing of living/moving water clears the cobwebs from our mind, the same way that the rain clears the Air. Cleanliness is a force of intention we can apply to hold a positive train of thought. Feng Shui promotes a sense of well-being. In its most basic form, “good Fung Shui” is a matter of cleanliness and order. Don’t you feel better when your place is in order? It also includes the consideration of movement. Are there any sharp corners in your space that slow you down, when you remember times you’ve made contact that left a bruise? It can sound like a small thing, though cleanliness and order do interrupt thoughts of well-being.

I was inspired by the following video about some Japanese customs that create good Feng Shui. When we apply all the Truth we know, even in small ways, it can make a huge difference in the Stability of our Well-being. Small intentions of cleanliness make a difference. We can grow from easy ways to create a positive outlook on our life.

I’ve been inclined to steps of order and cleanliness, after recovering from an injury that restricted my movement. I’m catching up on Spring Cleaning. I can always use some inspiration for that. There’s plenty left for me to do. Here’s some new ideas to share with you for a more orderly space and mind.

love, in lak’ech,

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

PS – I’m holding prayers for others to the East of me for the thunderstorms that moved on from SE Kansas to become tornadoes in Missouri.  May those affected be blessed with the strength of spirit to recreate order in the landscape of their lives.


The Highlights, Peak Energies, and Times of Synchronicity for this trecena are included on the  13-Day Trecena Guide.

The “Tzolk’in Field Guide” is my gift to download that includes the Count of Days with the aspects for each Destiny Kin and highlights for a personal practice with each trecena. It’s designed as a companion for daily practice.

Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide. to download a free copy. Volume 1 covers the first two seasons of the Tzolk’in, and Volume 2 covers the 3rd and 4th to the end of the Tzolk’in round.

The beginning is a good place to start a dedicated daily practice to record the Truth of your daily experience. When you track your the thoughts and experiences that don’t appear to mean a thing, you’re mind will be changed the next time around when the same thing happens again on the very same day. At least you’ll question the coincidence to see the Truth of Divine Synchronicity, when it happens the 3rd time – and you KNOW Time had a meaning and you were exactly where you were supposed to be.  I’ve forgotten all about miracles that happened before, until I see them happen again. That’s when you see that YOUR story was already written before you were even born.

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

Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.

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, 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.

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.
