1 Earth/CABAN – Divine Forces of Nature


1 Earth / CABAN

1 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

We become One with the Mother at a new beginning. Just as our Hearts are the Channel of God’s Love, so is the Heart of Earth and Heart of Heaven a Channel that we all share as the One.

1 Earth/CABAN brings us into synchronicity with the rhythm of the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. We draw inspiration from the Forces of Nature and Beauty of the Natural World.

To all my relations, Earth/CABAN offers the place of perfect balance and centeredness within the perpetual movement of the Ever Present, Now.

in lak’ech, i am another you,

Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN

Ceremony Update: Eve of the Seed/KAN Trecena

Summer Ceremonies: The Doctorings

minisa-gardeningFrom “Spirit Talk – a Book of Days” by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

Since many, or most, of us do not live in close proximity to adepts and holy people that can and do facilitate community ceremonies, that appropriate action is, in the end, essentially personal. So what matters is bringing the fullness of our minds, hearts, bodies, and spirits forward to say yes once more to life. Herein and from this point on, we are offered the opportunity for which we were born, that of recognizing ourselves as our own holy people. Aho!

Take up the staff of authority and don the mantle of leadership, and if you will, emerge and embark upon finding, forging, and designing a Way that is unique to your personal attributes and needs. These are the new Ways coming forward for the new days . . . and we are the ones. Since each of us initially think principally upon ourselves, as it should be, let us now think even more and deeply upon ourselves and the personal links to what we can identify as the proven and worthy gifts of life, the Sacred and all of its auspices. This is a deeply personal and sacred moment to be held close, in silence and privately, for some time to mature and seat in the deepest, innermost recesses of your sacredness. Take time for the building of this precious personal medicine, our personal medicine treasure—that of which we know and that of which we are—together and in a spirit of oneness with the mind of the Creator, in concert with these first, most beautiful and enduring gifts to and for us from the Creator: our Mother the Earth, our Father the Sky-Sun, our Grandmother the Moon, our relations: the Star People, the Directions, the Elementals, the Spirit Helpers, the colors, the Wind Beings, the Fire Beings, the Green Beings, the Water Beings, the Stone People, and all of the other named and unnamed sacred related beings that live upon and within this beautiful Creation.

The old people say, “That which you recognize, you own.”

They also say, “It’s not so much, will you do it, but whether you will remember to do it.”

Therefore, it is always about remembering… for the old ones say, “It is not whether you will do ‘it’ but whether you will remember it”, and, at the core of our remembering lives our sacred nature and the sacredness of all creation.” ~Minisa

monkey-altarGreetings Kin,

During times of significant transitional energy we may find comfort through a practice of sacred ceremony. Minisa shares tradition from the Medicine Wheel path on holding a personal 4-day sacred ceremony.

A Medicine Teaching on Personal Ceremony

by Minisa Crumb Halsey


Optional: partial fast suggestion for four days of A Good Red Road Ceremony of offering our minds, hearts, and bodies upon the Staff of the Good Red Road of the summer-winter axis. Consider placing the spine upon the Mother Earth, floor or bed and surrendering our spinal beingness to the Creator for initiating Unity movements WHILE INTENTIONALLY RECALLING THE ABOVE OBSERVATIONS. This activity, when activated in a sacred manner opens the potential of reunification and the re-membering of ancient, lost and disparate aspects of the self, the causes of which are not our fault.

Ceremony Update: Eve of the Monkey/CHUEN Trecena

The Birds and Bees of Summer

A Message for the Trecena of Monkey/CHUEN
by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

Let us place some time and attention apart in order to move into and more deeply with the divine and eternal concepts of balance and harmony. Love and the red gifts of the heart are flowering, even fruiting and seeding with those of us who reside in the northern hemi-shell of our beautiful Mother Earth which is in turn, shone down upon and energized by our beloved Father Sky Sun.

The Fine Points and Broad Encompassing Curves of the Medicine Wheel

A Message for the Trecena of Serpent/CHICCHAN
by Minisa Crumbo Halsey


trees5xBy the calendar of the natural world we completed the first quarter of summer sometime within the elastic middle of May, three weeks from the energetic ingress of summer.

Often, the last three weeks of a season and the first three weeks (21 days), will display classic transitional patterns so look for the unusual in everything. The unusual may be connected with completing , seating or initiating both the 21 days marking the ending and beginning of seasonal transitions. There may be a push-pull dynamic which can result in a kind of stasis or stop action so listen to the mind, heart, body and spirit message that may be distracted or feelings of overwhelm… set intention to honor and take mindful care of the whole system. These fine points do require the attention of time, rest and thought. Take refuge in silence and solitude when possible. There may also be concurrent rapid change and growth which can stretch and near exhaust resources and reserves and when the two follow closely upon one another, overlap or stack, it is time to call TIME OUT!  No one can really do this to or for us as well as we can ourselves and often, carefully planned timeouts will not even be noticed. Repair, nourishment of all kind, and restoration are a wise (and enjoyable) course to integrate into the busiest and most demanding season of the year.

Setting Sacred Intention

A CIMI TRECENA MESSAGE by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

Mother Earth Holds Vision of New Life

Mother Earth Holds the Vision of New Life*

Late and heavy snowfalls, rain and floods accompany Cimi the Transformer, bearing the moisture necessary to soften seed skins toughened by the sunlight and heat of three seasons past. No season stands alone and no breath is unlinked to any previous history which give us cause to ‘remember’ this trecena, that the Mayan elders would call upon us to meditate upon ancestral seed, memory and wisdom.

Would we also remember that certain elders have told us that “the calendar did not end in 2012 and that it is ‘up to us’ to begin writing the new Books of Days and calendars”? This then, is the Sacred Charge of OUR time and we need look no further than the first, most beautiful and enduring gift to us from the Creator, Master of All Breath, of our Mother Earth and our Father Sky-Sun for the initial paradigms and original instructions.

Transformer/CIMI – by Minisa Crumbo Halsey


The CIMI glyph appears to float between the worlds in a twilight mist, linking spring to the memory of the autumn mist, to which we are related by virtue of the east-west axis on the Medicine Wheel. The Cimi message is information saturated with the mysterious medicine of transformation all the while offering a smile of encouragement. This very serious trecena possesses potentials scarcely glimpsed, barely sensed and yet palpably felt, helping to retrieve and drive all directional and historic returns back to the origin point of the eternal present. Is this the spring of our evolutionary year of years? I wonder, as walks upon the land are revealing, in this two-leggeds observation, hereto for unprecedented growth patterns among the tree beings.
