Greetings Beloved Kin,
Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.
Have I told you lately that I love you? Lately, I’ve been hearing more about the affects of loneliness on our Health, not to mention our frame of mind. Our whole sense of well-being can be effected by it, and it can lead to impaired faculties of Consciousness, to put it mildly.
I should be a basket case by now, but I’m happy, and it’s all due to your Light that passes this way. I don’t have to meet you or know where you are to be blessed by the Light of the reason you pass this way. We’re all reaching for a Right Relationship SOMEWHERE, that makes it worth the effort to carry on. We’re the lucky ones if we’re reaching and it does me so much good to know we cross paths because somewhere out there, you’re reaching too.
We finally completed the 1st Season of Germination. We made it out of the ground and into the Light with the Truth that we ARE changing, and by the Order of the Tzolk’in our first lessons learned are 1) We can, we’re designed with all the faculties we need to accomplish anything we’d Love to Be or to Create as Our Dream for the future, and 2) It’s easier when we’re doing it with someone else in mind. And, it has to be a dedicated mission to Remember anything when we’re going through the perpetual chaos of change. It really is a matter of “everything all at once.”
We’re moving out of the Grand Cross in fixed signs, and old fixed ways of being. Now we’re into the Deep Waters of our Feelings and Emotions. The “big shift” of the Day is leading us to be our authentic selves. All the forecasts say that’s the “next big thing.”
We’ve been birthing our New Self to the Light where we have room to grow to maturity. Childbirth is an experience of that same passage. By the time it’s over, you’re exhausted. Nothing has been left to the imagination, and everyone has seen the worst already. By the end, you don’t care what people see, as long as they are there to see you through the recovery.
I recently came across a youtube message about the symptoms of MAJOR Transformations. Exhaustion, weight gain, and increased appetite were close to the top of the list and the key experiences I could relate to. I’m starving, and trying to lose weight I gained over the 2 months I was in recovery from a fall. Calorie count seems to have very little to do with the success. I can starve myself for days, lose a few pounds, then eat ONE DESSERT, and gain 2 pounds back overnight. It feels like peddling as fast as you can on a bike that’s going nowhere.
The good news is, this too shall pass. This is a MAJOR change and our body needs to hold on to all the water it can get to facilitate a reorganization of all our pieces and parts. The best thing we can do is DRINK MORE WATER, and GET MORE SLEEP if that’s what our body is telling us to do. Everything is going to be okay. This is a process that’s leading us from an old life into the New Life of our Dreams. We’ll see new buds on our Tree and new ways to branch out over the next 40 days and we’ll be on a roll, again. We only have to move beyond our “post partum” blues. Our Higher Power is very good to those who carry on in Faith for tomorrow, and there’s a Divine Comforter showing up tomorrow (1 Transformer/CIMI) that will be by our side to remind us of the Divine Blessing that’s just around a corner.
13 Serpent/CHICCHAN marks our Ascension to Higher Ground. The Higher One is delivering the “lightning in our blood” to FEEL the Truth. We don’t have to THINK about it to figure it out anymore. CHICCHAN is the Light of Illumination that awakens all our Gifts of Spirit, and CIMI is the first to share the Gift of Clairvoyance, so we can FEEL the Truth of what the future will bring. Plus, we’ll have a caretaker that provides room service.
Lightning in the blood is the quickening of our Spirit that sends blood rushing from our root to our Crown. When we receive the Sixth Sense of our Heart, the Truth we Feel is all we need to know. Choices will be easy to make when we learn to follow our gut feelings to see clearly.
CHICCHAN holds the Element of Fire to stir our Passion to rise to the occasion for something we Love. The future will be SO bright, we will forget all the blood, sweat and tears of yesterday. Our Divine Justice will be Knowing we can get through anything with the Creator’s Love as the Wind at our back, and the Highest Authority who stands in our corner – towering over any intimidating character that so much as looks our way. 🙂 All our strength will be restored by the passion to see how far we could go. We won’t care what anyone thinks anymore. We KNOW what we can do.
CHICCHAN holds position 5, the Number that symbolizes the Power of Human’s Hand after it’s been through the Fire and made it through to the other side. We start with 2 days off before we moved to wish on a star. We’ll reach the Peak of the Creator’s Unconditional Love, 3 days after, and all with a Comforter and Caretaker by our side. We can have faith in CIMI who believes for us, what’s hard to believe for our self. We could even have dessert if we drink a glass of water before, and after. 🙂 One of my new go-to’s is a slice of Angelfood cake for 120 calories. I think it swells up inside when you drink water. The Serpent can help us shed our skin and strike out of our corner.
That’s my “authentic message” for the Day. I’ll end it there. I’ve learned that my happiness can be annoying to others. It’s YOUR fault. I’m counting my blessings that you’re carrying on, and counting the blessings of a Creator who never pushes us beyond our limits. A New Dream will be our Reason to Live for tomorrow. I have Faith enough for me and you. It’s easy for me to laugh. Maybe I’ll learn that crying is okay too.
love, in lak’ech

13 Serpent/Chicchan (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
Descriptions by Ian Xel Lungold, 12 Sun/AHAU, MayanMajix.com
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.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.
