MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 6 helps us to hit our stride on the climb to peak energies of the Monkey/CHUEN trecena. As Monkey paints the picture of who we are, we will discover we are more than just the sum of our own parts. We are connected as One through cellular memories passed down by each generation.
CIB serves as the guardian of Universal Consciousness. The sum of all our progress is built on an accumulation of knowledge outside our own. And, each new generation is a hope to the last that we might realize our true potential.
THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
6 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
UINAL OF IMIX
Core Days: Kin 121-140 The core days of the Tzolk’in can be thought of as an illustration of the World Tree. The Maya believed this to be the axis mundi – the center of the world that connects Heaven and Earth.
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. A good day to sit on a rock.
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ : Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritative. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.
Crystallization of Spirit Day 6
We are forever connected to our ancestors as we are One as the substance of Spirit. We are all stakeholders in the future our world could hold. Our ancient ancestors would do everything within their power to ease our way.
CIB reminds us that our Highest Consciousness is dependent on a Spirit of Forgiveness. We all walk the hard road of life. Only through the release of our resentments are we open to hear the wisdom they might share.
This is a time to call on the old ways, the old knowledge, and the wise counsel offered by our Grandfathers and Grandmothers. They offer us proven and worthy tools to start from a new beginning. It’s now our turn to carry their effort to its next highest accomplishment.
The annual migration of the Monarch butterfly is considered a miraculous phenomenon of nature in that 4 generations of butterflies are required to complete the trip. Each generation carries only one leg of the journey. It takes all 4 generations working in concert to manifest a common intention.
To my all my relations, may we recognize ourselves as the Hope of a New Generation. May we rise to our own occasion to carry on the sacred intentions of the One.
