MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
13 Earth / CABAN
On Tone 13 of Ascension, the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena completes a Transformation of Spirit.
13 is the Divine Number of Communion with the Creator. 13 is the symbol of Divinity, the God Above that guides the 12 Below. 12 is a symbol of Humanity, like the 12 constellations, the 12 disciples, the 12 tribes. Like the Solar System, the 12 orbit around the One Divine Light. 13 reflects the Truth that, together, they are One Divine Movement in Time and Space.
Through the Consciousness of the 13, we hold the Truth that we are not just moving in circles, but held in the Balance of a Divine Relationship with the Sun. ALL things are made Divine by a Light at the Center. Our Human Light is held in the Heart.
Serpent/CHICCHAN feels its way by the Truth it feels through the Vibrations of Earth. A Serpent Feels the Forces of Earth’s Vibration so well that it knows everything in its path as a Higher or Lower Frequency of Vibration. The Serpent is the symbol of Illumination and the Gift of Seeing Clearly. Through the thoughts of Earth/CABAN, today we can Know our Oneness with the Whole of Creation on Mother Earth.
Earth/CABAN offers a Perspective about Movement. It is symbolized by Mother Earth, a body of Divine Movement. Our Mother Earth perpetually moves through her own cycles and seasons, purposefully leaning to and fro to maintain a Balance that guarantees every place on Earth it’s own Season in the Sun. The Earth carries us through the Darkness and always Returns us to the Light. One Season would always be in Balance with another. Everything that Human could ever believe was lost forever, would always come around again. The perpetual Seasons of Earth’s Movement, offer the Truth of the Future and the Past. We could always look back and discover a Season we’ve known before. By this Truth, we would Believe in a New Season that exists in the Future. Earth/CABAN illustrates the Movement that is always Fair, always offering an Equal experience for all kinds of Happiness.
Earth/CABAN holds the Truth of everything Human needs to know about the Meaning of Everything. Through her movement, we can know how our Spirit moves with her through every Season and every cycle of Human Transformation. She is always carrying us to our Perfect Time and Place.
The Aztec Ollin, resides at the center of the round stone calendar, marking 20 milestones of Human experience, 20 different perspectives of Knowing. The elements of Divine Consciousness are reflected equally from the macro to the micro. To Know all things, begins with Knowing One Thing.
We are a Reflection of the Creator. All things are a Reflection of the Creator’s Love. Every small thing holds the same elements as the One Divine Thing. The All-in-One of the Tzolk’in’s 20 Day Signs, reflect everything We Are. We experience the Knowing as Synchronicity. We’re astonished how a calendar could reflect our own thoughts in the Moment. Each Day Sign is an Expression of our Divine Nature. All-in-one, they reflect ALL the thoughts of our Divine Nature. Not a single one of the Day Signs tell us anything we didn’t already Know. The calendar marks the Divine Times and Places we can Know there is a Purpose in all the thoughts we think “Now.” Every Time has a purpose for a Divine thought.
The Cherokee, Heron, is a symbol of perpetual migration. Heron moves from one place of Abundance to another. Our Spirit moves from one Divine Perspective to another. One and All will hold a Truth we need to Know.
The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. The Ollin symbolizes Movement by Spirit through Divine Intentions. The Ollin marks a Divine Message, to live by the Truth of our own Divine Thoughts. This is day defined as “lucky” for the “active principle” and “unlucky” for the “passive principle.” It’s a day to seize an opportunity to CHOOSE our direction of Movement ON PURPOSE, for a REASON, instead of just “going along.” A Divine Blessing is offered when we do. Ollin is said to hold the Consciousness to See what we are Becoming.
Tone 13 represents the magic of theurgy, the ability for Human to call upon Divine Agency through our rituals and ceremonies. Tone 13 is the witness of Divinity. There is Divine Power in the prayers that Human can see. To Human, “Seeing is Believing.”
Altar to the Year Bearer 13 Earth/CABAN near Lake Atitlan. 13 Earth/CABAN completed a cycle of Planetary Ascension in 2012. We are 7 years in to the next 13 year cycle. We are guided by the Year Bearer 7 Human/EB, in the Balance for Human’s Divine Justice.
13 Earth/CABAN was the Ascension planned from the beginning. The K’iche Day Sign is N’oj, a symbol of ALL Knowledge and ALL faculties of Knowing.
Human was created as One and the Whole of Everything. When we can separate the two sets of Conscious Thoughts – the Human’s thoughts of fear and illusion, from our Spirit’s thoughts that lead us in the direction of Love and Happiness, we hold the Wisdom of Knowing the Power to Create a new Reality. We’ll Know which thoughts are True.
The Beauty of Mother Earth can be seen clearly once again. Our Vision is elevated see the Paradise we could create with her Beauty. Mother Earth is the epitome of the Movements of Love. Divine Thoughts of Her will sweep away the illusion of Human limitation.
To all my relations, may we celebrate our Ascension of Consciousness. May we imagine a gem we will tuck away as our own secret treasure. May we Pay Forward our Compassionate Love, so we are carried by a Divine Flow. May we see how our Future has already been changed. May we imagine the hybrid Seed the evolves to a more Potent version of itself with every harvest.

Apollo 8’s first Vision of Earth
13 Earth/CABAN in the last round marked the Anniversary of our first vision of Earth from outer space. 13 Earth/CABAN was the first day we saw the Beauty of Earth as seen by the Universe. We imagined we were there, just too tiny to be seen in the picture. We were given a new Truth of our Time and Place that we would now imagine in a new way. Earth went from a drawing on a piece of paper the a ball of Blue Light, suspended in the Balance.
All my Relations, may we look across the Medicine Wheel to the Season of Harvest right across from us. We are the Seed from the Best Fruit of our last Harvest. We are tending the Seed chosen last November. We can See where we are today, in the middle of Spring, Dreaming for the Seed of a new Harvest. This Time and Place was a choice we made last Fall. Did I even mark which Seeds we planted? A visit back to October and November will help us remember, our last life-changing Truth.
in lak’ech, i am another you

13 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.
Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.
Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way.
