MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
12 Serpent / CHICCHAN
Tone 12 is the Day of Understanding. Truth moves from the Head to the Heart.
Serpent/CHICCHAN is a catalyst of Spirit. “It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.”
Down through history, the Serpent/Snake has represented the Force of Life. CHICCHAN offers the gift of “lightning in the blood,” the 6th Sense that “bestirs the blood to speak.”
Like the Dragon, the Snake represents “seeing clearly.” The Snake sees what can’t be seen by Human eyes. A Snake Senses Vibration. The Snake exists closest to Mother Earth, intimately familiar with the Forces of Life. It feels the presence of its prey through the Earth’s Vibration. CHICCHAN shares this sense so we can feel the “Life Force” of Spirit within our Self.
Jaguar/IX has taken us on a journey as a shape-shifter. The Jaguar leads its multi-dimensional journeys toward the East, so we always end up in the Light of Divine Inspiration. To walk this path, we had to close our Human eyes and feel our way by Love. We had to hold Faith that Spirit would lead us in the right direction. It was a Choice to shape-shift perspectives from our Human Nature to our Divine Nature. That meant that no matter where our next foot might fall, we would Know it would land in the Creator’s perfect Time and Place. Knowing this Truth, we can See and Acknowledge each Day as a Sacred Event planned for us, that would always hold an opportunity to Know Unconditional Love.
12 Serpent/CHICCHAN offers a Spiritual Gift that we will Know, Because we Know. CHICCHAN is the Creator’s touch to the Heart that sends the Force of Life through our whole body, related to the Kundalini energy that travels up the spine.
We’ve been given the fundamental lessons of our Resource of Consciousness. We’ve been encouraged to Dream our wildest dreams, Believing in Unlimited Possibility. We invested an effort of Intention to Grow our Inner Strength. And, we learned that we would instinctively Know our way to the Light of Truth and Love. The effort and Choice to Know is Seen and Acknowledged by the Creator as a Sacred Offering. An Offering always manifests an Atonement with the Creator. An Offering is an act of Humility that Sees and Acknowledges something Greater than itself. Through an Offering, we claim the Presence and Authority of Divinity. We manifest what we Claim is True.
The Creator’s prevailing Intention was a Divine Relationship of Seeing and Acknowledging each other. Seed/KAN raised our Belief in who we are, relating to our Identity of Spirit, our intangible body. The Creator intended to know the whole Human experience. The Human Being was equally Sacred. So did the Creator intend to have a tangible relationship connected to Human physicality.
Just as we can Believe in Spirit, we can Know through the body, the way the Serpent Knows by Vibration. Our body Knows when we are in Relationship with the Presence of Divinity. We think that we are the only one that engages the Divine Relationship. Maybe we rationalize that the Creator is just “always there to turn to.” That’s not a very mutual relationship. When the Creator sees us shape-shifting into our Divine Nature, we can feel the Spark of a Divine Engagement.
CHICCHAN is the fundamental catalyst of every Spiritual Gift of Knowing. “Lightning in the Blood,” refers to our gut instincts, intuition, and the Truth we Know because we Know. These are all expressions of our Sixth Sense. We wish we had them, and struggle to claim them.
These gifts are part of our Divine Design, so we can assume that what the Creator made is in perfect working order. The problem is, the Gifts work so seamlessly, they can be barely recognizable. Our gift of Intuition is in its full mode of operation every day. We call it coincidence, if we notice it at all. Maybe we instinctively drove a different way to work. Or, maybe we arrived at the grocery store at the exact place and time where the front row parking spot opened up at our arrival. (I’d like to know the real odds on that.) Maybe it’s just knowing “this is NOT the day to ask for a raise.”
We want it to be more than that. It IS more than that, once it is Seen and Acknowledged. When we become Conscious of the Knowing, we will “See” it is as Awesome as our very own Human Relationship with a Consciousness of Divinity. When we actually USE it, we will BEGIN to KNOW how this Gift will serve us.
Today is a day when we can recognize our Spiritual Gifts. Like a Spark of Electricity, CHICCHAN ignites the Blood and Grabs the Heart. CHICCHAN raises hair and goosebumps when we “feel” the presence of danger. CHICCHAN is the rush of blood that goes to the head in the moment of a revelation or an epiphany. CHICCHAN is the spontaneous tug on our Heart when our Spirit exists in the Presence of Joy and Love. CHICCHAN is the Force of the Creator engaging with our Spirit.
We made the Choice to follow the Jaguar’s journey so we might gain the Wisdom of an Experience as Human Being Divine Spirit. We’ve accomplished something. We have arrived at a greater understanding than when we started. We reached our Higher Ground.
The Creator sees ALL the Beauty in us that Human eyes can’t see. The Creator sees our Intention to be something greater than we are. The Creator sees our disappointment in our Human limitations of Love. The Creator sees the list we made out of all the things about our Self we would change, if we only could. This is the Evidence of our Divine Nature, not an accomplishment that our ego would be proud of, but an Inclination to Love. If we’ve seen any of those Intentions in our Self, we can claim a Divine Consciousness that Is Lifting Us Above our Human Nature.
Jaguar/IX led us across the dimension of reality to the realm of Spirit. IX sees these dimensions as close as the reflection on the water, right where we are. We were led to the Gift of CHICCHAN where Human is touched through the Relationship of Spirit.
This is a day to pay attention to your gut instincts and intuition. This is an opportunity to experience your own Spiritual Gift of Knowing the Creator has engaged in relationship with you.
The end of the Jaguar’s journey is the Sacred Altar that it guards in stealth. We walked as Human in Spirit to get here. Today we are called into the Presence of the Most High. Our Name was called and we are walking across the stage to receive our first Initiation of Spirit. We are Recognized for the First Choice that turned Faith into Believing.
In the Choice to Know the Creator through our Gifts of Consciousness, we made the fundamental step toward a Divine Relationship. We thought we were just stumbling along, doing good to put one foot in front of the other. The Creator saw the genius in the Dawn of our Awakening. In Sacred Exchange, we will Know we have been Seen more Beautiful than Human could imagine.
The Snake grows and expands by shedding its skin. Today we can see the ease with which we can shed the skin of our Human identity, to see the Beauty of the Spirit inside.
To all my relations, may we Claim the Gift of Knowing the Presence of the Creator. May we recognize the tangible experience when we are touched by a Spark of the Creator’s Love. May we recognize how in this Moment of Heart Engagement, that there is an absence of longing for anything more. The connection alone, is a Gift of Love worth living for. May we offer our Gratitude for a new mystery of Spirit to figure out, one that can Spark our Imagination to discover what it could mean for a new way of living. May we Give Thanks for the Gift of Being Seen, and for the Authority of Divine Will to fulfill a Dream that exceeds Human imagination. May we Know by the “Lightning in our Blood” that our Heart is being tugged toward the Pure Vibration of Love by an Unseen Force of Spirit.
in lak’ech, i am another you

12 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
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.
