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.

12 Reed / BEN – Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 12 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: DISSEMINATION OF THE SEED

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Reed/BEN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 12 raises Truth through Understanding. Truth matters when it reaches the Heart. For all the Means and Ways that human can employ the Truth is just another fact without the Matter of Love.

12 Reed/BEN raises the Light of the Creator’s Highest Dream. Through channels of Divine Communion, the One Above reflects the Truth our Heart needs to know.

The Elders say that all things want to be Seen and Acknowledged. Beauty just is, unless we can be part of it. Love is someone seeing us the same way we see the Beauty of a Sunset. We know we’ve been Seen and Acknowledged when someone identifies with the Light beyond our shadows – when someone shares how we feel. That’s what the Creator waits to share as the Sacred Exchange for every Offering of Truth Disseminated through the Breath of Love.

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family with a Heart that leans toward the children. The Reed is the “hollow bone.” The flesh is burned away by our Love for the children. They lead us on the Road of our Highest Integrity. BEN is the Wisdom to Walk the Walk.

The Highest Light that BEN can share is the Truth of Answered Prayers. It takes Time and Patience to See that the Truth Matters. BEN’s Light is the Faith to Believe in the One Above.

The glyph illustrates an altar with two channels of Light shining from Above on the altar. Below are the prayer mats with places for 2 to kneel as One. We each have our own channel to the Truth we are Intended to know in Time. The 2 channels opened by 12 Reed/BEN are opened to connect the Truth between our Heart and Mind. Truth Blossoms in the Light of Love.

In the 11th uinal, the Fruit is on the Vine. We see the Beauty of a Higher Love that WILL Be. We don’t  know how, but we will carry on to know the Mystery. BEN holds the Element of Fire to burn away human matters into the Truth of “pure spirit.” The  Unknown doesn’t cast a shadow when we Understand the Offering from Above is a story with a happy ending. From a Light in the East that breaks with every sunrise, Beauty is the Beginning and the same Ending of every day. The  Day is a Sacred Legend for ALL Time.

Children are Divine Objectives of Human’s affection. The Circle of Life is forged by every new generation down the line from the Above to the Below. Human Dreams are always aimed at the future. The Wisdom of the Owl is seeing the Truth all-around to pay the fare of the “mystic ferryman” that carries us to the Other Side of Love. Wisdom is seeing the Truth in the past in the here-and-now for the future.

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

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: DISSEMINATION OF THE SEED

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Road/EB (HUMAN)

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 11 raises the Intention of Resolution. We see our Highest Dream of Love with crystal clarity. Through the Light shared from Above, we Know a Higher Dream of Love is always meant to be.

Master Number 11:11
Master Number 11 symbolizes the Source of Divine Inspiration. 1 is the Beginning of ALL  things. We are tuned in by a Divine Pair of Antennae to the channel when we see the symbol repeating itself. 1 is a symbol to our unconsciousness of Unity, Alignment, Only, First, and Highest Priority. We are tuned in to the Truth that’s “top of mind” by a Higher Resource of Consciousness. This is the 11th Tone in the 11th uinal of the Tzolk’in round. 11:11 is said to be a Code of Activation, a Divine Wake-up Call – Truth Breaks its 1st Light.

The Higher Intention of the 11th uinal is to Resolve a New Way Forward, for a Brighter Seed of our Self. With every 260-day orbit, we see a Higher Truth from all around. Every year is a challenge to reach a Higher Place. Today, we are intended to see the Beauty of a New and Higher Beginning. The trecena of Wind/IK intended to raise a Higher Creation of Love by the Truth of Divine Will. We were humbled, reaching human’s way.

On Tone 11 the shaman climbs to the Highest Alter. Our Offering is the best Love that we could imagine. We know if we dreamed it, there WILL BE Divine Justice beyond the limits of our imagination. Our Heart is Aligned by the Truth of Love.

Road/EB is Human’s Road of Destiny. EB, also known as Human, is the Truth of us ALL. On Days guided by EB we are connected as One Mind of Divine Consciousness. We all have the same thing on our mind and we KNOW our Hearts are One. The Destiny we share as One is the Journey. Below, human walks the “hard road” to realize the Truth in the End. Human’s Offering is Sacred to the One for the Choice to Bear the Time, carrying the Truth of Love to the End.

EB resides in the South, where we Feel our own Element of Earth and the Influence of our Relationships as an experience of physicality. We Feel the Truth we share. From all the “hard roads” we can Feel, our burden feels Lighter. We know someone carried the same burden before. They carried on with a Dream for Life.

The Road is Hard, and we see a Higher Climb, but we Know there is a Way. We hold a Dream to Create Higher Love. We don’t have to know a way for Love that multiplies its Own Beauty to Abundance. We only have to carry on to manifest the Beauty beyond our dreams.

9 Dog / OC – 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 Beloved Kin,

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

Peak Tone 9 raises the Intention to Complete the Truth. Wind/IK offered the Truth of Time that was Spoken  from the Beginning. We were created to See the Beauty of the Light. Light was the Gift to Know the Beauty of Love through ALL our Senses.

Tone 9 raises the intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. Number 9 completes the Creation of the Holy, Holy, Holy. 9 is the Number of the Highest Exponential Value. Love is the Offering marked as Beauty for ALL Time.

The Wisdom of the Creator’s Love is raised by the Highest Truth of the One Below. Dog/OC holds position 10, the Higher One created by the whole investment (9) of the Heart. Dog/OC and Monkey/CHUEN stand together as positions 10 and 11. They hold the Highest Perspectives at the top of every uinal climb of  Higher Intention.

Dog/OC is the nahaul that grasps every Opportunity to Look for Love in all it’s expressions. The Dog marks the spot and brings the Gift Home, leaving a scent to the place for another to follow ANY time. The Monkey/CHUEN sees the Beauty of the faithful friend, who looks for and only sees with all its senses, the Beauty of the Love waiting to bloom from every heart. The Monkey is the Genius of the Natural World, with the Sense to Love just to see the Whole Wonder of the Creation. Monkey/CHUEN is the weaver of Time, the Mystic with a curious heart, to imagine how and when Love will manifest the Truth of Being.

Love was placed in our Heart by Divine Agency. The Mind of Divine Genius created Beauty to mark every Offering of Love.

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

THE TRECENA WIND/IK: DISSEMINATION OF THE SEED

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Peak Tone 8 begins the Transformation carried out from Above. Force of our Highest Hope for Love was weighed in the Balance. A Divine Agency will apply the same effort, only the Force will be magnified by the Hand of  Divine Trinity. We Feel the Higher Truth, we can reach higher, wait longer, and believe in the Dream that is the Reason for Time, to see the unfolding Beauty.

8 Offering/MULUC marks the Day of a Divine Offering, the Light that Travels to Infinity. The Number 8 is a symbol of Life and Abundance. The Maya define 8 as the number of “pure spirit.” Holding the Element of Fire, all our Human matters are burned away by the Truth of the Creator’s Love. Offering/MULUC is a Divine Healing to our Human emotions. We can see the Light of their Highest Purpose – to Feel. Feeling is the Only Way to Know Truth from an Experience.

Human Beings are Sacred to the Creator as the Ones who Bear the Time and make the Sacrifice to Love. Tone 8 holds the Creator’s Highest Intention of Divine Justice. There is One who has witnessed every burden, every choice outside of our own that imposed a burden on our heart. The Divine Justice for the Scion is that All Things can be turned to Beauty, when the end is Love. If there is Love in the Beginning, Love will carry on for All Time. Through the Atonement of an Offering, we will Know when the Burden is lifted from our Heart and filled by a Higher Light Above.

MULUC is a symbol of the Moon and Water Everywhere from the Cosmos to our Tears. Blood is the Living Water within that generates the Feelings of our Magnetic Attractions to the Above and the Below. All the Love we focus on the Highest One as the “object of our affection” the more we feel the Force of our Attraction, and the harder it becomes to be held apart. MULUC can restore equilibrium to the Deepest Waters of our Soul. MULUC guides the way of Giving Back and Paying Forward.

The glyph illustrates our One Drop of the Whole raised up to be Seen by The Creator. The One Above sees the Light of Love in every Offering. The ritual carries out the Truth that we See and Acknowledged a Divine Hand. Our Divine Justice is that for every Human Hand that reaches with an Offering to Love, the Answer to the Prayer is More Love Applied to Every One. A Divine One Knows that we will ALL reach that same place in our own Time. No one ever has to pass that way again, when the Light of our Love is Applied on Behalf of the Whole. The Elders say that what we Heal in our Self, we heal for the Whole.

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

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: DISSEMINATION OF THE SEED

7 Star / LAMAT

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Peak Tone 7 completes Human’s climb to the top of the pyramid. We are given a Higher Perspective to see the Truth of “all that is” and “all that is not.” Wind/IK, the Breath of Life and Spirit, shares the Truth and the Light of the Creator’s Dream to claim ways and means to carry out a Divine Mission in our Time and Place.

We stand in the Balance of the 7 days and 6 nights, and at the center of Time on the scale of our everyday experience of Life. Number 7 is a symbol of the Great Law of Creation, “As Above, So Below.” It means that what is created in one plane of consciousness, is manifested in all others.

It sounds like a Miracle, though every Human thought colors our discernment of the Truth. We create the cast and characters for every experience. We can be standing in the presence of Beauty, yet we can’t see when our mind holds the vision of our doubts and fears. We know we could turn from the thoughts. There’s only one reason we hang on. Forgiveness is the Key to the Kingdom.

Star/LAMAT is the symbol of the Scion and the Light of our Ascension to the Highest Meaning of Time. LAMAT is a symbol of Venus, a Light of Beauty 2nd only to the Sun that shines as the Morning and Evening Star. The Scion was given the Light to shine in the darkness to Conceive the Light.

LAMAT’s totem is the Rabbit, a symbol of Instant Manifestation. The Truth and the Reason to Love instantly generate the Light of a Higher Ending. We know we will carry on, when Love is APPLIED to an “object of affection.” When we hold a Divine Reason to Love, we see why it matters and how Love speaks for itself when Time is dedicated to the purpose.

LAMAT, Venus, and the Scion reflect the Beauty of Time. Venus is a Divine Time-keeper for all the Mayan calendars. When Venus makes it’s transit across the Sun the Mayan mark the moment when all the calendars reflect the Perfect Time at the same time. LAMAT is a Divine Time to Know the Highest Truth of Love as the Beauty of Creation. LAMAT is a day of “pure luck.” Wherever we focus our Love on an “object of affection” the Truth of Love will be multiplied to abundance, like it happened overnight.  As the Personification of the Creator’s Light, the Sun, we were born to shine our Light equally, all around. LAMAT resides in the South, shining the Light for Right Relationship. Holding the Element of Earth, LAMAT’s Light of Love manifests the Truth in a tangible way that our Heart will Feel to change our Truth about the everyday experiences of Life. Not all days are the same. LAMAT was the day given to the Scion as the Perfect Time, the Divine Time to Know the Power of Love.

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

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: DISSEMINATION OF THE SEED

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Transformer / CIMI

Greetings Beloved Kin,

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

September 11, 2021 is a day that’s marked to Change the Future – a Day to Remember. Every 20 years we complete an experience on a planetary scale by the count of Haab years. The Intention is guided by the Tzolk’in’s lord of Time that serves as the Year Bearer. Each year from a beginning of time follows the same rotation of 20, to see the Cause and Effect from the Divine Perspective of the All-in-One.

20 years ago 3 Wind/IK guided the Common Experience on a planetary scale, when 2 pillars of human power and authority were turned to dust.  Tone 3 raised the Intention to Move. We were united by a tragedy and then divided in its wake. The Truth is known by the Pillars that Stand. Tone 3 centers 1 thought on our mind as an Intention to Create.

Human can stand on the sense of its own well-being as the Truth without a leg of Truth to stand. Looking back, it’s hard to remember these “ole days” when there was harmony and equity. The Truth was that if the Truth didn’t affect us, it hardly mattered more than “thoughts and prayers,” the least we could do. The Only Way to See the Truth is to tear down an established order of thoughts. Sometimes we have to be shaken to our senses. CIMI knows how to share the Truth with a “soft hand” so we know the Blessing of the Truth in the future.

On September 11, 2021, 5 CIMI we claim the Truth within Human’s grasp to Know a Major Change is directed under the  Power of the Highest Authority of the  All-in-One. It’s harder to resolve the pieces and parts of Truth that are seen over longer cycles of Time. When you are drawn  to a thought in the past, note the calendar. We can be drawn to see a “cycle of time,”  remembering disassociated events that just happened to occur around the same Time and Place. It offers a direction to focus on the “big picture” of the experience. 3 Wind/IK marked a new Intention to Move and created a new Vibration as the Winds of Change.

20 Haab years later the Year Bearer is 10 Wind/IK, marking the Time to Manifest the Truth of the Creator’s Breath, and the Reason for The Creation that was already shared as the Truth that stands within. All things are equal in the Above and the Below. Through a reflection of One, we can see the Other. Wind is the One Pillar of Truth that stands forever as the Power of the One in Movement of Life, breathing in and out the Light to Witness the Truth every moment. We can See the Light with our eyes open or closed, for the Light of Divine Consciousness shared within.

Tone 5 raises an Intention of Empowerment. In the 5th hour of Light our Common thought is to gather the tools before we begin “the work” of creation. We are ALREADY creating the end we see when  we choose the colors of the paint and the brushes we’ll use. On Tone 5 the tool of Divine Agency is our own Consciousness to Grasp the Truth that’s Real in the Future. CIMI shares the gift of Clairvoyance to see the future. With every manifestation of Creation, Above and Below, we have witnessed an end that we have Chosen to follow. CIMI is the comforter, the midwife and hospice nurse that never leaves our side. CIMI’s hand, restores Divine Faith through Reason for Human’s mind to grasp, and as a Guiding Light to Remember the Truth we dreamed as our Divine Justice in the end.

Today we hold the Light of the All-in-One to see the One Truth that matters the most to every Heart and Soul, when it comes down to the way we would choose for the story to end. Do we want to fight to the end? Is there a Light of Love that’s Bright enough and a Sound Loud enough to be felt by every Human Heart? Isn’t that the same question on everyone’s heart and mind? Or is it? Whatever it is, a stronghold is broken by the Power of the Wind. The Truth that lies within our grasp is an “Act of God.” That’s the Highest Truth of Love we can know as the Wisdom of our own experience.

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

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: DISSEMINATION OF THE SEED

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 4 raises the Intention of Stability. Tone 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms. On Tone 4 we establish the boundaries and parameters that will define a dimension of thoughts. To  build the pillars for Faith in our Dream, we can define the “rules of the game.

We choose in advance, which thoughts we’ll follow, and thoughts we’ll turn away. Knowing our Self,  we can expect that we’ll forget.  With a plan, we’ll Remember where to turn.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the Light of Kulkulkan/Quetzalcoat, the Feathered Serpent. CHICCHAN is the Light of Truth that descends from Above. CHICCHAN is the Spark that lights the fuse to ignite the Force of Life. Light is shared as a Question that is Answered by our Heart.  CHICCHAN shares the gift of “lightning in the blood.”

CHICCHAN is Human’s Divine Gift for Knowing, the Maya call the Sixth Sense of the Heart. CHICCHAN relates to Kundalini energy that rises from the root to the crown, leaving goosebumps, and hair standing on end. CHICCHAN is a COMMON feeling that takes charge of our Consciousness in the moment.

The Serpent offers a Brighter Light from Above to “clearly see” the Truth of the Whole. CHICCHAN is the Source of the Spark in the Seed. CHICCHAN is a Force that captures our attention as a sense of danger, or an overwhelming sense of joy in the moment. The Snake “sees” its prey by feeling the vibration of its Movement through Mother Earth. We can feel the Vibration of the Intention. When we walk into a room we have a sense “what’s going on.” “What’s going on with us” is the Force that announces every entrance we make.

GLOBAL BURNER DAY: 4 SERPENT/CHICCHAN

On Global Burner Days the Maya priest carries out the Sacred Fire Ceremony on behalf of the whole. The Intention is to restore Right Relationship in the Community. There are 4 Global Burners, one at the Center of each Season of the Tzolk’in. They mark a release of residual energy. Each Season is a Transformation of Life with its own Higher Intention for Becoming. The One Above can clear out thoughts to focus on the Higher Truth. Old matters are resolved, and burned away. 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN shares the Feeling of Knowing that “we will be Moved by the One Above.

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

3 Seed / KAN

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: DISSEMINATION OF THE SEED

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Beloved Kin,

AKBAL guided us into the darkness to share the Dream of our Heart’s Desire. Human eyes searched in the darkness for Truth that could shine the Light of a Possibility. We couldn’t find the pieces that fit. A Voice within shared the Truth, “There’s a Divine Way.”

The Truth of a “Divine Way” is written in our heart. We don’t need to know the end. Our Heart will Remember the Feeling, and our Mind is given the Reason to Believe in ALL the Dreams our Heart can hold.

Seed/KAN is the Spark in the Heart of the Seed, the “little dragon” – a piece of the Creator’s Heart and Soul. KAN holds the magnetic forces of Divine Power to Draw Abundance, like casting a net. The Seed is born free of karma, given the One Obligation to Live and Grow into the End it is created to be.

We might find a wealth of new resources, turning to our own needs wherever we have been giving by a “sense of obligation.” That isn’t Love or a Choice. It’s noted that those born Seed/KAN grow up to be caretakers for the elderly and disabled, helping to relieve others from the obligations of their debts. The Human Seed holds the Dream of the Scion. The Unconditional Love of the Scion, can only be manifested as a Choice.

KAN holds the Force of Knowing that ignites Life and Consciousness. KAN knows every condition that’s right for the Light of the Dream for the Dawn of a New Awakening. It’s easy to say “no” when the Life of such a Divine Dream depends on Love that’s a Choice. KAN leads us to CHOOSE WHAT WE LOVE, for the sake of the Divine Dream that was given from Above.

AKBAL offered a close-up look at the inner workings of our mind. Seed/KAN is the microscopic view of our Divine Design. It only makes Good Sense and Wisdom to apply the Gift to an Intention to “Know Thyself.” Seed/KAN guides us to make a thorough inspection of our Self and the Experiences that make us Happy and create a sense of Well-Being. We’ll reach the Divine End making the Choices we’d Love to Make (by Divine Design). That’s the Beauty of the Life we were given. We can let “Yes” or “No” stand as a worthy answer, when we don’t know why – it’s just what we want to do. As long as we apply the Golden Rules, and honor the Same Freedom of Choice given to every One.

Tone 3 raises the Intention of Movement. By taking a physical step toward the end of a Dream, or by disseminating the spoken  words of the Intention, we create a New Vibration. The Tone and Frequency are set from the beginning, like the note on a piano carries its same sound to the end. The Wind/IK trecena is Human’s application of the Truth that we are Moved by the Light of Truth from Above – by the Hand and Voice of the Heart of Sky. Seed/KAN shares the Divine Vision to “see clearly.” The Truth comes first, then we see all the pieces that fit. All the Truth we witness along the way lies in the shadows until the One Above shares the Reason to See. We are Moved on 3 Seed/KAN, the Truth written within by the Creator of Beauty.
