Draw in breath through the nose as Light of Spirit and direct it toward this place, then pause to imagine it’s illumination. Breath out the unwanted and send away with a blessing. Breath in Love to fill the empty place.

Sacred Medicine Wheel Tradition: Minisa’s Breath on the Season

Minisa’s Fall Equinox photo of Keyhole Light on the Medicine Wheel, 2018

A Breath of 1 Wind/IK – Minisa Crumbo Halsey

Greetings Kin,
A fire will be Kin-dled. Bring your emptiness and fullness of the season in quietness and peacefulness into the reception chamber of all matter to observe and sit together, with the season.

Offer what you have or what spirit suggests … these breath offerings are designed to feed and nourish all sentient and insentient beings, including ourselves, through intent. It is through these things, thoughts, and actions we come to more deeply know ourselves and nourish the intent of this unified ‘knowing’ of ourselves within the structure of the Medicine Wheel Teachings.

11 Road / EB – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 11 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Road/EB (HUMAN)

Greetings Kin,

Road/EB is also known as Human, representing Time as Human’s Destiny. EB is a symbol of the Tzolk’in, Time that was ordered for Human to Know Thyself from every direction. EB is the path we were given that always begins and ends with the Truth. Time always tells the Truth in the end that was the Intention from the beginning. Wisdom depends on applying the Truth we know.

The Tzolk’in is the road map to our journey. The glyph illustrates the Road in Human’s head. On either side are the milestones that mark the Truth of experience. There will be Times and Places on our Road when we know it’s Time to Move. The Truth we learn over Time will compel a direction.

A Divine Mother teaches us to keep moving with all our heart. We were given the Sign of a Major Life Change. The Truth we learned is that it will take a Major Life Change to move from our Human Nature to our Divine Nature.

The Wind/IK trecena shared that Truth that we are Moved by a Reason. We don’t have to wonder what we should do. If Truth leads us in a new direction we can follow, believing we’ll know the Reason in the end. It’s not a matter of Right or Wrong that Human tries to figure out. When we’re directed from Above, we’ll unexpectedly strike out of a corner, or the Truth we follow will be the One Way we can see to choose.

When we offer our Life into the Hand of the One Above, we’ll Know the “only way” we can see is the Divine Way. We can hold faith that a Supreme Creator knows the way to its own end, and that we are intended to Know the next Wise thing to do.

11 Road/EB represents the One Wise thing we can always do to know the direction a Supreme Creator intends for every new beginning. On Tone 11 the Mayan priest climbs to the highest altar with an Offering, knowing that through an Atonement of Heart and Mind, a way will be given. Tone 11 holds the Intention of a Resolution. We are bringing the Highest Truth of this round into focus. When we can see it in the clarity of High Resolution, we’ll know what it means, and we’ll know there’s a way.

9 Dog / OC – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 9 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the Big Picture. There will be suffering to bear if we fail to grasp the Insight of a Divine Meaning and Purpose. Tone 9 holds the Intention to Complete the Divine Justice of the Holy, Holy, Holy Trinity of 3+3+3 – Human’s whole investment to manifest the Truth of a Higher One. Tone 9 symbolizes the exponential value of Investing our Whole Heart. 9 is a Trinity of Trinities that can also be expressed as  the exponential value “3 x 3.”

To reach the Whole Truth there must cease to be any questions. In the 12th uinal of the Tzolk’in, we are being raised to the Highest Consciousness of Understanding for the whole Tzolk’in round. We’ve nearly seen a New Light of Truth from every perspective of Human’s orbit. It’s the Wisdom of OUR Seed, wrapped up as a Spark of Truth to be held for a New Beginning, without any strings to the past. In the 12th uinal we can feel that we are taking New Truth to Heart.

REMEMBER THIS TIME. Mark it in your journal, how everything was so clear, and each day held a synchronicity of Time that you could See and Acknowledge as the Truth. We are headed toward the Dawn of a New Awakening. Every new orbit begins with a journey through the darkness of a New Unknown. Though, our new Seed will grow faster and stronger than before. That’s always our Divine Justice, if we can Remember.

Dog/OC is the nahaul/essence of the Creator’s Unconditional Love, and the Life Dreamed for the Scion. A Divine Descendant of the Holy One Above was intended to know that every Day is Sacred. In EVERY experience of EVERY day, there is Truth that can become the Divine Wisdom of the Experience. Whether we find the Truth of it or not, Love is there by Divine Design. We no longer have to see the proof to know Love is Real. Dog/OC resides in the North holding the Wisdom of Divine Love. The Dog isn’t afraid of Love that’s messy. The Dog knows the treasure lies wherever it’s left a piece of its heart.

We raised the Dog in our Self through an Offering to Forgive. We were given a Divine Way to Love Forgiveness for the Overflow of Love that is given back to our Heart. The Wisdom of the Dog is that Love is the Only Choice that always makes Sense. We have been guided by Wind/IK to the Highest Truth that we could take to Heart. The Key to the Kingdom is held in a Human Hand that chooses Forgiveness. Through Forgiveness, the veil will fall to See and Acknowledge the Truth of the Promise.

Dog/OC holds the Element of Wind to return the Breath of Life and Spirit to our Heart. The Element of Wind holds all the Wisdom of the Truth and relates to Human’s gift of Consciousness. Wind holds the Power to Change our Mind through an Act of God’s Love. The Key that hurt to choose, opened the door to see a new Life just across the threshold. There’s no way to fail. We have more Love than we could ever throw away, before it comes right back again, multiplied to abundance.

8 Offering / MULUC – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 8 of 13

THE TRECENA WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena, the zenith hour of Light. The K’iche meaning of number 8 is “pure spirit.” Tone 8 holds the Intention of Divine Justice.

Peak Tone 8 begins the Transformation phase of each cycle of Creation, carried out as a Divine Intervention. Our Justice is a Divine Provision  of Love for every Human limitation. Every new step to Higher  Ground begins from the Ascension to Higher Ground we knew before. We ascended from the Offering/MULUC trecena, with a Divine Dream to sacrifice our Heart for a Divine Meaning and Purpose.

Volunteering to pay the price on behalf of the Whole, the Truth of our Salvation will be sealed within the Heart of a New Seed. We offered to let our past rest in peace. In memorial, we claimed it to be beautiful just the way it was. The old way that was broken led us here, and a Human Being had to bear all the scars.

Offering/MULUC is a symbol of the Moon, Emotions, and Water everywhere from the Cosmos to our Tears. MULUC can heal the suffering of a Broken Heart with a Blessing of Living Water. The Light of  a New Dream can prove that for every scar we won a battle. We’re given a New Meaning and Purpose to Live and Love for that one that came before. We will still feel the pain, though there will be no need to suffer when we know it’s a Divine Fire burning the Human flesh away.

Offering/MULUC is a day for Giving Back and Paying Forward. On Tone 8 the Truth is our Divine Justice. We raised our Self up, Offering the Truth of our Human limitations and a Dream that would take a Miracle to come true.  Reaching for a Miracle to Forgive, we asked for the Only Way Possible. The Offering was the Dream of a Supreme Creator, that nothing, not even a limitation of Forgiveness could ever separate us from the Whole.

We are Divine for asking, even while we were suffering. We don’t need to hold the Power, if we Remember the Way.

Offering/MULUC resides in Position 9 of the Tzolk’in uinals. Every MULUC Kin number ends with the Number 9 in the lower place. Nine is the “Sum of the Whole” investment of Love that a Human has to Offer to manifest a “Higher Place.” Offering/MULUC marks a Sacred Exchange and an Atonement with the Consciousness of Divine Love. We are bound to the Creator’s Love through the Element of Fire and Feelings shared, Above and Below.

What greater offering could we bring to express our Love than Human Forgiveness, the only Sacred Exchange that could make the Creator’s Dream come true. Loving Back and Forth can manifest a Miracle, when a Power of Divine Love ripples through the Whole.

7 Star / LAMAT – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 7 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 7 completes a Human climb of Intention. At the top of the pyramid we’re given the view of “all that is” and “all that is not.” What were we looking for? Whatever it is, the Truth will be multiplied to abundance. Tone 7 is a Reflection on the Promise, “As Above, So Below.” We will find whatever we’re looking for, and when we are willing to see the Truth, Truth will hold an Answers a Human Heart needs to know.

“As Above, So Below” is called the “Great Law” of creation. What is created from one realm of consciousness will be balanced in all others. It corresponds with the Universal Laws of Cause and Effect. The Universe is our “field of corn” where a Life is Created.

Whatever we “throw at life” the Universe will bounce back. When we conceive this Divine Truth, we can grasp the Beauty of Life. Throwing all our Love at Life, we can ONLY Know the Sweet Return of Unconditional Love, multiplied to abundance by exponential Forces of the Universe.

To Know the Truth we have to “track the mind.” The Gift of Truth is multiplied to abundance, when we realize we can conceive Wisdom “beyond our own years.” The Truth is we’ve been collecting knowledge, facts, and symbols through every experience of our life. We were given the Gifts to Understand when we added 2+2. We hold the Wisdom of Divine Genius with the Intention to See the “Sum of the Whole” Story.

Star/LAMAT is a symbol of the Scion, created as a Personification of the Creator’s Light to shine equally all around in 4 directions. A Light is created as a Source of Illumination to reveal what’s hidden in the darkness, Unknown. As the first descendant of a Holy Light, we were intended to shine a Light on Love, Unseen. It’s a human sacrifice. We have to look into the darkness where Love has never been seen before to raise the Whole Truth to Light.

We weren’t meant to leave anyone behind. “The Work” isn’t finished until the Whole is found to complete the One.

We have to track our own thoughts to remember what we were climbing for. In the beginning, we imagined Love. We woke with a Dream beyond Human imagination that we could all Love each other in Harmony and Equity. It was the Creator’s Dream and our Intention was the Wisdom of the Human experience of it. If we can face the Truth, Tone 7 will always reveal “all that is not” within our own Power to Love and “all this is” Loved at the Highest Altar.

We arrive at the Highest Altar with a Human Offering to Love what we still can’t Forgive, a sacrifice of the Heart. What we can’t forgive, a Divine Creator can heal, when a Human Being kneels to ask for Love on behalf of the Whole.

6 Deer / MANIK – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 6 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 hold the Peak Energy of Flow. Tone 6 represents the Momentum created by a rhythm and pattern of movement. Tone 6 offers a force of motivation as we begin to see the Truth of Cause and Effect.

Tone 6 is the Flow of Creation we establish by putting a “system” in place. With a rhythm and pattern we see greater possibilities. When we get into the flow, it becomes a challenge. How far, how fast, how how could I really go?

We have a Divine Reason to ask these questions at this Time and Place. We’re realizing what we could do with a Brand New Life. All the Ah-ha moments of the 12th uinal, is Divine Understanding being drawn together from all the pieces and parts of Our Experience. If we can sacrifice the life that didn’t work for us before, for the Life we were Promised, we could be the Savior to our Self. We are preparing to move into the cycle of Ascension. We’re realing the promise that we CAN start over again. With every new and higher Intention, we are holding our Self accountable to Higher Love. With every journey into the darkness and back around, the Light we Remember is brighter than before.

Tone 6 is the energy of a great athlete that has practiced all the steps. Seeing a Divine End in sight, the race to the end becomes an Expression of the Art. When we let go of what we don’t know as a “nothing matter” and engage everything we DO know, we could REALLY know what we could be.

Deer/MANIK shares a Power to turn away negativity through a Spiritual Gift of Vigilant Consciousness. The Deer is a nahaul of Beauty in Motion. The Deer has the stability to Stand on its own Truth with one foot to plant in each of the 4 directions. Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest who demonstrates the Divine Movement of Faith. Deer/MANIK represents the “Mission of Love,” one who dedicates themselves to follow a path to an altar, to carry out the rituals, prayers, and sacred ceremonies on behalf of the whole. Through the Momentum of its movement, the Deer holds a Power of Harmonic Resonance. The Frequency of Love draws lower Sounds into Harmony.

MANIK guides us to be a living demonstration of our Faith in the Integrity of Truth. Our highest example isn’t perfection, but where we go when we reach our own limitations. We are guided to a Life of Humility, Tolerance, Love, Forgiveness and Understanding… like it’s a Mission. We are changed when we dedicated our self and our time to a Divine Meaning and Purpose. We see a Divine Hand guiding our Life. When we’re dedicated to a path, we’ll REMEMBER all the Power of a Divine Hand Above.

5 Transformer / CIMI – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 5 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Transformer / CIMI

Greetings Kin,

Transformer/CIMI is the Sign of a Major Life Change.

Tone 5 hold the Intention of Empowerment. At the Center of the cube, 5 is a Force of Intelligence that manages resources for application. In the 5th Hour of Light we gather all the tools for “the work” to begin.

It’s a Common/Divine Way of Human to gather the paints and brushes. We are already creating as we imagine the colors we’ll need. Tone 5 raises our Faith to know we can manifest a creation when we can see the ways and means.

Transformer/CIMI is the Midwife that stays by our side. The glyph illustrates the face of Death as a reminder that something always dies as something new is born. CIMI watches over with a “soft hand.” We are reminded by CIMI that chaos is always the Sign of Change. CIMI marks a transition on the scale of Life or Death. A new life depends on letting go of the past.

CIMI holds the Gift of Clairvoyance to see the Future. With CIMI we feel the Faith to Let Go with one who is always with us and will know in advance everything that’s needed in the moment. CIMI reminds us, we CAN see the future. CIMI reminds us of the blessing that will be born in the New Seed of our Self.

CIMI resides in the North, the Direction of Wisdom. CIMI reminds us that we can Ask to Know the future, and LOOK. Holding the Element of Air, CIMI reminds us of the resource of Sacred Breath.

4 Serpent / CHICCHAN – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 4 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. Tone 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms. The area of a cube is defined by it’s boundaries and parameters.

In the Center of our Circle is a Square that defines 4 directions of experience in our Life. Tone 4 guides us to define the boundaries of thought to uphold the Faith to Believe.

In the 4th hour of Light, the Maya reached the field of corn. They shared the same thought to survey the landscape. Tone 4 reflects the same thoughts we hold when we arrive at work and see our desk. We conceive “the work” that lies ahead.

Our “work” is to move Faith to Believing in the end. Human dreams the “Meaning of Life,” when we direct the course of our thoughts. The Elders called it “tracking the mind.” When you discover Truth you didn’t realize you knew, curiosity will draw you to turn within for the next thing you need to know. We can define the boundaries of thoughts aimed toward believing.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the DIVINE SOURCE of the Spark within that brings a Seed to Life. CHICCHAN symbolizes the Feathered Serpent, Kulkulkan/Quezalcoatl, the Light that descends from Above along the stairs of the calendar pyramid. CHICCHAN “lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.

CHICCHAN holds the Element of Fire that burns away matter to leave only the Truth of Pure Spirit. Fire holds the power of transmutation. When thoughts of our Ego are burned away, we become the “hollow bone.” As light as a feather, we’ll see the Truth from the other side. The feathers, fringe, and ribbon on the Sacred Dance Costume, are the antennae, catching Light in the Air.

GLOBAL BURNER DAY:

The Global Burner at the Center of each season, releases old issues to the Sacred Fires for the Blessing of Change. Old truth that no longer serves the purpose is burned away. We’re clearing a field where new dreams will be planted. On Global Burner Day the Mayan priest builds the Sacred Fire where prayers will be offered for the Whole. The Intention is a restoration of Right Relationship. 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN stabilizes a Divine Intention of Knowing. The Dragon is a symbol of Divine Illumination. CHICCHAN grounds the Truth that we FEEL vibrations, the same way a snake “clearly sees” it’s prey. Continue reading

3 Seed / KAN – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 3 of 13

3 Seed / KAN

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 holds the Intention to Move on a Dream. We bring a New Vibration to Life through the Sound of our Movement and Dreams we disseminate as the Spoken Word. Wind/IK inspired us with a Promise first Spoken by a Supreme Lord of Creation. The Tone and Frequency of our Movement and Vibration will be established by the Reason we move.

It’s not Truth that divides us. We’re divided by Human Reasons. We’ll understand one another when we reach the Truth of our Feelings. Feelings reflect the Truth of our “Reality.”

Seed/KAN represents the Truth of a Divine Design and the Consciousness of Knowing. KAN is the “dragon energy” of Seed, an imperishable spark that comes to Life when all the conditions are right. A dormant Seed Feels the Truth while its still asleep. Every Seed is a Miracle. Human life began as a Miracle. Seed/KAN helps us “clearly see” through our Feelings. We were Loved before we were planted to be a thing of Beauty, holding the Gift to Multiply to Abundance. Seed/KAN guides us to take a Divine Look at our Self.

The Seed’s way of Living by Divine Design is to reach for the fertile ground it Loves. Without judgement a Seed KNOWS to Choose what makes it happy. Every Seed was given its own Life, free of any debts or obligations to the past. KAN represents a Conscious clearing of our own Karma.

Seed/KAN resides in the South, guiding the ways of Right Relationship. Holding the Element of Earth, KAN relates to our tangible experiences of life. Seed/KAN is a state of mind resolved by a Power to Say No. To our Ego, “No” = “Bad.” It was an inevitable conclusion from our childhood. That’s why we need a Global Burner at the center of each season to burn the dead and dying truth away. When “no” is the answer for a Reason of Love, it’s the Truth of Wisdom and Common Sense.

On KAN we can “clearly see” choices we want to make. We may have labored over the decision, thinking we needed to have a better reason that “something we want to do.” The roots of our obligations can be untangled by the Truth. Choosing happiness will shine a light on both sides. We don’t have to defend Love. Love is a Divine Reason all by itself. Through the eyes of a Seed, the Choice is a matter of “Our Life” or Death.
