MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
13 Earth / CABAN
On Tone 13 of Ascension, the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena completes a Transformation of Spirit. Number 13 reflects the power of theurgy, our ability to call on Divine Intervention through ritual and sacred ceremony. 13 is the Truth of a Divine Communion and the Power of our Prayers.
With each cycle of Growth and Transformation, on each Tone 13, we hold Higher Evidence of this Truth. Our Faith grows every time we make this Journey of Transformation in the company of the Creator.
13 Earth/CABAN was the promise waiting at our Ascension that all our Knowledge would be gathered together. The Ending was promised from the Beginning. The K’iche Day Sign is N’oj, a symbol of ALL Knowledge and ALL faculties of Knowing.
Earth/CABAN is a symbol of Movement, as are the Cherokee and Aztec symbols. The Cherokee Heron is a bird of perpetual migration, always moving to the next Higher Ground, and the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. The Aztec Ollin simply means Movement, the symbol illustrated at the center circle of the Aztec stone calendar.
The 13 days of the trecena define 13 Intentions, 13 Sacred Movements of Creation. We can create anything by following these steps. The 20 Day Signs represents perspectives through which we can carry out each Intention. All 20 reflect the All-in-One, from the Alpha to the Omega, Sun/AHAU, the symbol of a Supreme Creator.
The 13 Intentions relate to 13 major joints in the Human body (1 neck, 2 shoulders, 2 elbows, 2 wrists, 2 hips, 2 knees, and 2 ankles), all the ways that Human moves. Human is created from the 13th Chromosome shared by each of our parents. 20 represents our ways of Discernment. Counting fingers and toes reflects Human’s gift of intelligence. Together, the Whole of the Tzolk’in Human calendar reflects 13 intentions of thought, and 20 ways to perceive it (13 x 20 = 260 days), a meaning for 9 months of creation, all the steps of Human Transformation.
On Earth/CABAN we are drawn to see our place in the Universe and How Human is synchronized with Earth’s creation, a cycle of 365 days. What Human creates in 260 days, the Earth creates in 365 days. The Ether of Spirit can be changed in a moment. Matter takes more time. The Elders taught that when we go through major transformations of Spirit, it takes a while for our body to catch up. We have to keep moving beyond the Knowing for the Whole to be Integrated Body and Soul. We have to keep moving to see the change in the world of physicality.
Today we can see the ashes of our past. We can see what had to die for something new to be born. Today we Know we were reborn. Human just needs to wait a little longer to see the new Wings of Spirit that are carrying us to realm of Divine Wisdom.
The 6th Uinal: Momentum, Flow, and Rhythm of Movement
This is very important Ascension, as each of them are. We are Ascending with a new Sense of Movement and a New way of Being. All our moving parts are coordinated in a Divine Rhythm and Flow of Universal Movement, and elevated to a Consciousness of Knowing.
