8 Earth / CABAN – A Manifestation of Love: Day 8 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 holds the Intention of the Justice of Harmony and Equity. 8 is the number of “pure spirit” and the Tone that begins the trecena’s phase of Transformation through Tone 8-13. The energy of an upward climb shifts to a descent. Through a Divine Intervention we are drawn forward by an Unseen Force of Spirit.

8 Earth/CABAN (8 No’j) is a Holy Day celebrated as the “Day of Awareness/Knowledge.” The Aztec refer to 8 Ollin (Earth) as the “Day of the Purified Heart”, signifying those moments when Humans hold the Consciousness to Perceive what they are becoming.

In the last trecena Earth/CABAN inspired us to draw close to Mother Earth, and to see our Self as One in the Consciousness of a Creation of Love. CABAN brought the Inspiration to Move in an Intention of Love. The Dog/OC trecena is the cycle of application that follows to offer us the Wisdom of the Experience. Earth/CABAN returning in the 8th Tone reflects its zenith position of Illumination. Divine Inspiration and Human Intention are drawn together as the Sacred Exchange that begins a Transformation.

8 Earth/CABAN can help us clearly see our Destiny on Earth and our Divine Purpose for Being. Our Destiny is the Pilgrimage of Life on Earth, an Expedition of Love. CABAN reminds us that we are One with Mother Earth, the source of everything Human could ever Know. We are made of Earth and hold all the same Elements and Forces of Being. Just as Earth is capable to draw our Consciousness, so does Human hold the Force to draw the Justice of Harmony.

6 Wind / IK – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 6 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

The Earth/CABAN trecena offers Mother Earth as the Divine Place where we could experience a new reality of our own creation. CABAN is guiding us to Know our Place in the Universe.

Under the 8th uinal we began a transformation from Faith to Believing in Unconditional Love as our Power to Create our own Realities of Love. We were guided to see that our Love would Overflow through the Choice to Experience Unconditional Love. The 8th uinal offered the Divine Justice of Knowing that through the Creator’s Love we would always Receive More than our Hearts Can Hold.

The number 9 emphatically intends the Completion of our Transformation, conveying the energy of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. The Spiritual Growth in progress is an Intention to see where Human fits in to the Bigger Picture. Number 9 is the “all that is part of the One,” expressed as zero “0” (the position of Sun/AHAU, the Omega).

Today is Kin 162, which resolves to 9, in the 9th uinal, in the 9th month of September. Each repetition of the number magnifies its Intention. If we look into the future, on Tone 9 in this 9th uinal (another 999), we will receive the Spiritual Awakening of Serpent/CHICCHAN, the catalyst that “lights the fuse” of all our Spiritual Gifts. 9 CHICCHAN is also a Portal Day. Also in our future, our Ascension on Tone 13 is Offering/MULUC, the Day Sign of Atonement through an Offering, a personal Sacrifice. Mother Earth CABAN is turning us toward a new realization of our place in the Universe from the Higher Perspective of our Oneness with Every Thing. On 13 MULUC we will manifest a Miracle, made possible through a Divine Communion, Paying Back and Paying Forward the Love of Mother Earth. The Earth is a manifestation of the Creator’s Love.

The Wind/IK glyph illustrates the t-shaped portals the Maya carved in stone. The Mayan daykeeper, artist, and historian Hunbatz Men explains this as a symbol of the Sacred Tree of the world, the axis mundi upon which the shaman’s spirit may climb. It also functions as a portal leading to the Great Spirit, through which the breath of life may pass.

“A transcendental synthesis of human religious experience is inherent in the word te, Sacred Tree, which emerged from the words teol and teotl the names of God the Creator in Mayan and Nahuatl. These most revered and sacred words of the ancient people, symbolized by the Sacred Tree, were represented in the Mayan hieroglyphs as the symbol ‘T.’ Additionally, this symbol represented the air, the wind, the divine breath of God.”  [Source]  FYI – How does “te” feel when you say it?

1 Earth / CABAN

THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN

The next 13 days…

Greetings Kin,

We begin a new journey of Incoming Light under the Day Sign Earth/CABAN. We are led to discover our relationship with Mother Earth.

We Dreamed of the world we would create in Spirit. Earth/CABAN can teach us everything our Seed will need to Know in the realm of physicality. Earth/CABAN is a symbol of Movement that creates Time to separate one experience from another, a Beginning to an End.

Mother Earth has something to share with the new Seed we’ve created. Earth/CABAN engages our Momentum of Movement. Our Seed will be Impassioned by its Purpose and Inner Strength to grow to its own maturity.

Earth/CABAN can inspire us to Believe in a Spiritual Manifestation that Human can claim through all our Senses, Uniting the Above and Below in a Correspondent Movement. CABAN is a symbol of a Divine Source of Knowledge. The Seed that will be born into darkness, will Know it is surrounded by everything it needs, and will Know its way to the Light.

4 SUN/AHAU: Global Burner Day
The Mayan priest observes the Global Burner Days with Sacred Fire Ceremonies for the Community. There is one Global Burner in each Season of the Tzolk’in, marked for the purpose of burning off residual energies. Days leading up to a Global Burner Day, you might experience the energy  as “overwhelm” or stress. Or you might notice less tolerance in your relationships. 4 Sun/AHAU, Kin 160, is observed as the day Humans were created. The prophecy of December 21, 2012 was associated with its Kin, 4 Sun/AHAU, as an ending and new beginning for all of Humanity. 4 AHAU completes the 8th uinal of Divine Justice.

9TH UINAL: On 5 Crocodile/IMIX we enter the 9th uinal that completes our harvest cycle of Transformation. Through an Intention of Patience, Number 9 offers a Higher Perspective of Truth. The 9th uinal represents the budding of the flowers that will create the seed of a new generation of Spirit.

PORTAL DAYS: The Earth/CABAN trecena includes 2 Portal Days that will thin the veil to other dimensions. A Portal will Magnify the Powerful Energy of 9 Serpent/CHICCHAN on Tone 9 of the 9th uinal, offering the Peak Energy of “Lightning in the Blood.” A second Portal will magnify an Understanding and Truth of our own Light on 12 Star/LAMAT.

PEAK DAYS/PEAK EXPERIENCES:

  • 6 Wind/IK – Spiritual Growth will be inspired by the Breath of Spirit
  • 7 Night/AKBAL – An Inner Voice of Spirit will Balance the Above and the Below
  • 8 Seed/KAN – The Holy Day of the trecena will Fire the new Seed of our Self
  • 9 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing are ignited

7 Earth / CABAN – Dawn of Creation: Day 7 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 holds the Intention of Balance between the Above and the Below. “As Above, So Below” is the Great Law of Creation. What is created in one realm of Consciousness is balanced in all others. This Universal Law illustrates that a construct from our Imagination, holds potential to be Created in the realm of physicality.

A Journey of Intention will always carry us to someplace new. A Journey in Spirit leads a Journey of experience below. Following a course of thought is the Journey of Creation.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth as a body that is always in motion. Movement creates Time. Without Time, the Creator existed as the Omega, the Whole of everything all at once. Movement creates Time that allows for the discern of an experience in the moment.

Mother Earth’s movement offers an experience of Darkness and Light. We would Know One by our experience of the other. Without Earth’s movement there would be no Harmony or Equity. For some, the Light would always Be, and for others the Darkness would always Be. Some would never experience a Sunrise, only a Beginning and End in Darkness. Through movement, Mother Earth fulfills a Divine Intention of Harmony and Equity for the Whole. Earth’s movement is perfect. If her sole pattern of movement was simply rotation, it wouldn’t accomplish the Intention. Leaning to and fro, her movement creates the Seasons that complete a planetary cycle of Light. Without the Winter, we would never know the Spring. We would never see a before or after, cause and effect, a beginning nor an end. There would never be a way to see One thing, only the All in One.

13 Earth / CABAN – Ascension: Day 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

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.

6 Earth / CABAN – Road to a New Destiny: Day 6 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 offers the Peak Energy of Flow to establish a rhythm and pattern of Movement. Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign that synchronizes our Movement with Mother Earth.

CABAN draws our awareness to the planetary seasons and cycles that define a Time for Every Purpose. Through the Movement of Mother Earth we experience cycles of darkness and light, seasons of Germination, Growth, Harvest, and  Dormancy.

Road/EB is the Day Sign of Human, raising our consciousness to our own Journey through life. There will always be experiences of “dark” and “light.” Holding Faith that every experience is presented by the design of a Divine Creator, like the Maya, we can see every day as a Sacred Event. We don’t always have a choice in the circumstances presented, though we always hold the Authority of choosing our experience.

Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth, a Body of Perpetual Movement. CABAN represents the body of nourishment that sustains Human life, and the body of Knowledge from which Human can learn everything we would want to know about Life and the Whole of the Universe. Earth’s sustained movement holds the Balance of its Relationship with the Sun.

Mother Earth embraces us in Her movement, guiding us to go with the Flow. Through Humility and Forgiveness, Earth is capable to move us beyond the darkness of our negative thoughts and behaviors.

5 Earth / CABAN – Building an Altar Within: Day 5 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 is a day of Empowerment. Five represents the center of the cube as the internal Force of intelligence, which organizes and manages materials and knowledge for application. 5 draws together the resources that are needed to empower a climb of Spiritual Growth.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth and Movement. Mother Earth is the source of all wisdom and knowledge, and represents every resource Human would ever need to live our lives in a good way. Down to the finest details, Earth is a living illustration of the Creator’s Intention of Beauty and Abundance. Her way of Movement maintains the balance of Light and Dark. Through movement She creates Time and allows Human to mark the seasons and to navigate by the stars. Through Mother Earth, we can draw Knowledge of our Self and whole of the Universe.

The Cherokee and Aztec signs, the Heron and the Ollin are symbols of Movement. The Heron lives its life in the perpetual movement of migration. The Ollin simply means “Movement” and is the symbol that resides in the center of the familiar Aztec stone calendar, marking 20 stations of movement. Collectively, they reflect the Power of an object in motion. The Aztec Ollin guides the intention of purposeful movement, defining this as an auspicious day for the “active principle” and an unfortunate day for the “passive principle.” The Aztec refer to Ollin as the “day of the purified heart,” when we draw the Consciousness of what we are becoming. The Heron is likened to the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes to live again as a new creation. So are we rising again, transformed as something new.
