The First 8 Monkey/CHUEN of this Journal: October 18, 2015

Greetings Kin,

8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’aatz) – First 8 B’aatz I painted.

I wanted to share the journal from October 18, 2015, the day I made a commitment to Count the Days. I had been calling myself a daykeeper since 2002 without a Dedicated Practice. I looked at the Tzolk’in every day for some synchronicity. That was as far as I looked.

I had written a few posts from the calendar on the blog, and thought it would be a tool for organization. Then one day, I mentioned the 21-day Gratitude Ceremony in a post. I thought, why talk about it, if you aren’t going to do it. I committed to 21 days. “What had I done? What would I even have to write tomorrow?”

Don’t hold me to any Wisdom about the Maya from 2015. I guess it was good I picked a narrow topic. I couldn’t even Sign my Name.

On that 8 B’aatz I realized I never made a real commitment. I Initiated myself. As my Offering, I made a commitment to 260 journals and 260 glyphs, one for every day.

Material changes have followed and I’m still following that path to another Dream. I could never measure the value of a worldly return to the Consciousness to see all the Blessings that were Always there and are Eternal.

I couldn’t have done it without YOU. I’m grateful to Celebrate the Day it began with you.
The Sun is shining, the Mother Finch is singing her song to it, and I placed my Love there. The Signs and Symbols will rise with tomorrow’s Sun, the beginning of our New Life on Earth.

in lak’ech, Debra  – HAPPY NEW LIFE

The K’iche’ Maya of highland Guatemala honor this day, 8 B’atz’ (Chuen/Monkey) as the beginning of the 260-day cycle of the Tzolk’in calendar. This is a special day when the Maya community joins to celebrate with Fire Ceremonies of gratitude and is the day of initiation for Shaman and Mayan Daykeepers.

When Maya people celebrate the Tzolkin new year, they are celebrating that the creation of the world has been fulfilled and that a new cycle of 260 days begins. The ceremony includes calling all of the 260 days of the Tzolkin/Cholq’ij calendar. Monkey is the first one called in during the Count of Days in Guatemalan Mayan fire ceremonies because he signifies the beginning of time.

These ancient sacred ceremonies are a time of purification, blessing and celebration now recognized and honored by Daykeepers throughout the world as well as the traditional Maya. Among the practices of a Daykeeper is to welcome the inspiration of a new Sun, and to send a message of love forward on the Sun in lak’ech to the next Daykeepers waiting for the dawn.

To all my relations, I am grateful for honored traditions brought forward from our ancestors that bring meaning and connection to our lives. I am grateful for every new beginning and for the opportunity it brings to be made new once again and to clear a way for a fresh path forward.

Most of all, I am grateful to hold a sacred space with those that share the path of beauty that we may all move forward in harmony and in the spirit of lak’ech – “I am another yourself.”

Today brings an opportunity join in a celebration in harmony with all that is. As this new day dawns, I send my love around to you on the Sun.

Greetings Kin,

I forgot to mention that Night/AKBAL represents the element of water – and, a day that could engage our emotions. Yesterday took on an unexpected sensitivity for the goodness of you. I can’t help loving everyone of you, just because we all share this hard road of life. Every one of you has been an encouragement to me to pursue my dreams.

Today is our ascension from the trecena of Road/EB, the road of our destiny. I’ve never felt so sure that life is all about the journey. Our Divine Destiny can be found living in every moment. Everything we need to feel joy is always available at our own command.

8 Transformer/CIMI – Road to Revival

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 cimiGreetings Kin,

Transformer/CIMI signals the coming of a major change. As we navigate a rebirth and transformation, Galactic Tone 8 empowers us to maintain our balance and harmony.

CIMI is the Day Sign that leads us through major changes and through the justice of 8 we can find the balance of harmonic resonance.

TRECENA OF STORM/CAUAC

8 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA)

Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eights carefully weighs all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement ‘as above, so below,’ from simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation, some eights are ‘neat freaks.’

Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.

Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.

Road to Revival: Day 8

This is a day to walk barefoot, spend time in nature, or seek novel experiences. In the middle of major change we are our best strategy is to go with the flow and surrender ourselves under God’s care. This is one of those times when we are advised to step back to gain perspective to keep from jumping to early conclusions.

Physics defines Harmonic Resonance as a balancing of complimentary vibrations. Just as we can emanate the frequency of Love to the world, we can also draw upon higher frequencies for our own spiritual revival. This is a day to seek our places of higher power.

To all my relations, may we remember to do the things we already know to regenerate our power. May we accommodate the changes we are going through by offering ourselves more TLC.

in lak’ech, i am another you

Greetings Kin,

Galactic Tone 5 brings the intention of our empowerment. Night/AKBAL is a Day Sign that brings hope in unexpected ways to fuel the revival of our Spirit. This Day Sign energy carries a supernatural quality and is known as the day when Spirit speaks to us in our dreams.

I find that the messages of AKBAL speak of faith and potential, revealing there is more going on behind the scenes than we imagine. Akbal brings the promise that when we find ourselves in places of darkness and the unknown, we actually exist within the energy of all potential. Only an act of faith is needed to move forward.

Greetings Kin,

As we travel the road to transformation we are empowered by the intention of Unconditional Love. Dog/OC brings the perfect illustration as a faithful companion, willing to risk its own life for our own. We are empowered on Galactic Tone 5 through the Divine Language of Love.

Minisa’s writing on Setting Sacred Intentions reminds me that the action of setting sacred intentions is a communication to the Creator that draws to us Divine Support and the sacred wisdom of our Ancestors.
