The Angel Oak Park is located on Johns Island where you can find what is known as “A Lowcountry Treasure”. The Southern Live Oak tree is a historical site and focal point of one of the City of Charleston’s public parks. It is considered to be the largest Live Oak Tree east of the Mississippi estimating to be 300 to 400 years old. The tree is 65 feet high with a circumference of 25.5 feet, shading an area of 17,000 square feet. Source: Charleston, NC, Angel Oak
Greetings Beloved Kin,
I woke from a dream this morning with the thought of the darkness that Humanity hasn’t even imagined to see. I thought of choices we’ve made and thoughts we followed without even considering what darkness will be left for the next generation. We’ve taken a leap over the edge without even looking to see the darkness that could be our own “rock bottom,” all for the thrill of the fall.
Neither did I want to look into that dark abyss to see, considering what I’ve already seen.
I was moved by a video shared by Abiya Bina, one of my favorite “van life” channels on youtube. She shared her visit to the Tree and the experience of feeling the Life and Consciousness of the Truth held within. She didn’t have to speak every thought to know she remembered the lives of those that were likely sacrificed there.
After visiting the Angel Tree, she shared her creation of a painting of justice and the balancing of the scales. On her work of art she referenced a scripture, Romans 12:19:
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
What is the meaning of Romans 12 19? (Google’s Answer)
Instead, Paul writes that we should refuse to take revenge because God is much better at it than we are. In a sense, Paul implies that taking our own revenge may dilute God’s opportunity to avenge us in His great anger against those who harm us. (from BibleRef.com)
Through our choices, we exact the consequences of our own ends, and the ends for the children who follow. So many have taken the leap into an abyss without even looking to imagine the Truth of “rock bottom,” all for the thrill of the fall. Children are already taking their lives, either by their own hand, or by the likely end of taking the lives of others. Are we even half-way there?
May we forgive those who are surely facing a Dark Night of their Soul. For the sake of the children, may we Forgive and release all our resentments, along with our doubts and fears that there is no power to turn it around. May we not shed any tears for our self, when we know it is “well with our soul,” but for those without the Wisdom to Look to See the future of darkness without end.
Surely that Tree has already seen it all. Instead of growing tall, it grew deep and wide. It’s branches reach as long as 100 feet in all directions, though it’s “only” 65 feet tall. May our prayers reach as far all around to all who are suffering from choices they don’t know how to turn around.
May we give thanks that our Divine Justice from the Beginning is the end of Unconditional Love. By the Words of a Promise, no life will be lost in vain. The Highest One remembers every one.
Divine Father, You are the Only One who knows the way. We call on your Love to save us all. Let this be the Time to know you can, and you will.
AMEN, AMEN, AMEN
Ecclesiastes 3:11 – KJV
11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
Our prayers matter. Spoken or unspoken, every one is heard. May the peace beyond all understanding, abide with you and me. May we do what we CAN do, and call on the Highest One Above on behalf of the whole.
love, in lak’ech,

11 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)
Descriptions by Ian Xel Lungold, 12 Sun/AHAU, MayanMajix.com
Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void. a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
A GOOD DAY TO: Spend some time contemplating the stars.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night. Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension. AKBAL-Night-Totem-OWL: Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, seeing through the masks of deception, trickery. High ability of discernment. Portals open to other worlds and dimensions for your learning and spiritual growth. Magical abilities are possible.
