4 Earth / CABAN – Journey of Spirit: Day 4 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. The Truth we can stand on lies in the 4 directions of Mother Earth. Tone 4 is compared to the cube that establishes dimension by its parameters and boundaries. The Intention of 4 is to establish the “rules of the game.”

In the 4th Hour of Light, we prepare for Creation. Thoughts are turned to the task at hand to conceive a strategy. By the 4th Hour of Light, the Maya completed their journey to their fields of Corn. They discovered the calendar in Human by the Intentions they shared in common in the same Hour each day. In the same Hour of the day they surveyed the Garden to discern the job at hand.

Our Garden is our Body of Human Consciousness that will Grow the Higher Consciousness of a New Seed of Being. Tone 4 establishes a foundation of thought that will guide us to Remember to Discern the Wisdom of Truth.

Earth/CABAN is the Essence of Mother Earth as the Source of all Human Wisdom. EVERYTHING Human knows we learned from the Mother. She holds the Truth of a Divine Design from the micro to the macro. From the Truth of One thing, we can discern the Truth of many other things.

The K’iche Maya essence of CABAN is called N’oj (n oh). The 3 symbols on the glyph are a straight line, a wavy line and ascending circles of Divine Thoughts. Together they reflect a Divine Trinity of Consciousness that consolidates Human’s linear intelligence, our unbridled Imagination, and the Divine Thoughts that lead us to the Gift of Comprehension. N’oj is the Sense of Knowing our Self and who we are by Divine Design. The task at hand is to be Moved by the Truth of our Divine Identity.

The Aztec Ollin (all in) simply means movement. The symbol lies in the center of the Mayan calendar marking 20 Divine Movements of Time. Like the 20 archetypes that are the all-in-one Consciousness of a Divine Creator, our Consciousness is moved to a Higher Plane as we move through the 20 perspectives of Divinity. Days led by Ollin offer the Gift of Identity Consciousness – days said to offer the Truth of what we are becoming. Ollin encourages us to keep moving, like Earth’s perpetual movement. They call Ollin a lucky day for the “active principle” and an unlucky day for the “passive principle.”

Mother Earth maintains her Balance and Creates Time through her Movement. The ways she moves is guided by the Element of Fire in her Heart. CABAN guides us to Move Now and Always with All our Heart and Mind.

10 Earth / CABAN – A Divine Gift of Ascension: Day 10 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. What we have focused on, our Intentions, ideas, hopes or fears become real. Tone 10 holds a powerful blessing and a great responsibility. We only manifest what we Claim is True.

In the 13th uinal we are Ascending to a Higher Consciousness of our own Divinity. Star/LAMAT guides the Truth that we are a Human personification of the Creator’s Light. LAMAT’s totem Rabbit is the Cauldron of Creation that Multiplies from the Overflow of Love.

The Truth we claim about our Self is the Light that will be Multiplied to Abundance.

Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth, the source of all Human knowledge. Everything we know, we learned through her. Mother Earth holds all the matter of The Creation. By Knowing the Divine Truth of One thing, we hold the Wisdom to discern the sameness or differences of all other things. We need Darkness to Know the Whole Truth of Light.

Earth/CABAN resides in the East, the direction of the Sunrise, our source of Light, Life, and Happiness. The East holds the Element of Fire, the energy that consumes and changes things from one form to another. The Meaning and Purpose of 10 Earth/CABAN is to claim an evolution on the scale of a Major Life Change. In the final trecena of the Tzolk’in all the incremental pieces and parts of our transformation are drawn together for Human to Believe in an evolutionary change in our Self and in the way we Perceive our Meaning and Purpose on Mother Earth.

The Aztec symbol is Ollin (all-in) is known as a day when we are able to “see who we are becoming.” The Ollin symbol simply means Movement. The Aztec call it a lucky day for the “active principle” and an unlucky day for the “passive principle.” This is a Day we are intended to Move with all our Heart. To manifest our Highest Aspiration we must claim the Divine Truth with all our Heart.

9 Earth / CABAN – A Divine Atonement: Day 9 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

9 Earth / CABAN

Tone 9 is the Peak Tone that Completes a Transformation. Tone 9 offers the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture.

The completion of cycles is all important to the Number 9. Number 8 is the Solar Number. Number 9 (BELEJEB’) is the Moon’s number, the Discernment of a Spiritual Cause and Effect.

Number 9 comes with a warning that there could be great suffering to bear without the application of Patience.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth as a heavenly body in perpetual motion. CABAN is known as N’oj by the K’iche tradition, representing the Source of all Human Knowledge. The glyph illustrates the 3 faculties of Discernment, the linear thoughts of reason, the unbridled form of the imagination, and the elevating thoughts of Divine Consciousness.

Noj is revered as a Sacred Word, meaning all the capabilities of the Human Mind. Noj is the Force that moves us by Divine Intention to the Choices that forever mark us as Divine.

Our faculties of Divine Wisdom are the effect when we draw equally from all 3 for the discernment of Divine Truth. Transforming to our Higher State of Consciousness requires the Patience to insure we’ve turned to each of our faculties of Discernment. The Whole Truth will be the Cause and Effect when we engage the Divine Trinity of Human Consciousness in Unity with a Higher Intention.

2 Earth / CABAN – Inheritance of Wisdom: Day 2 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality. We are separated from the One to experience our own Perspective of Consciousness. Experiencing the difference between one thing and another is the energy of Tone 2. We consider the journey that leads from one thing to another. We define the Divine possibilities and our Human limitations to make a Choice, “To Be or Not To Be.”

Every Dream and every Creation relies on our Passion to carry it out. Passion will empower our willingness to enter the dark, when we discern our own Divine Reason to make the journey.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth as the source of all nourishment to the mind and body. The K’iche Day Sign N’oj, symbolizes a Trinity of Consciousness, the Power of Knowing that is Divine.

CABAN resides in the East, the direction of Life, Light, and Happiness. Holding the Element of Fire, CABAN holds the power of transmutation. We are changed by Fire. Fire burns as the Passion in our heart to discern a Divine Meaning and Purpose to lead our journey.

The Aztec Day Sign, the Ollin (All-in) is marked as the Day when we see what we are becoming. Holding the meaning of Movement, Ollin motivates us to “move with all our heart.”

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

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 is the zenith hour of Light that begins a Transformation. 8 is the Number of “pure spirit,” and a symbol of Abundance and Infinity.

Every Transformation begins from the Higher Ground of the last. Tone 8 is the Number of Divine Justice. It brings the Divine Justice of Wisdom from the trecena before.

We were Inspired by the Earth/CABAN trecena to jump in for Dog’s Adventure of Love on Earth. Mother Earth’s Divine Justice is to See the Wisdom our Experience prove the Truth she shared. She guided us to Live with ALL our Heart and Moving on to the Next Opportunity for Love. She promised a Divine Provision for what we might have to let go. She gave us the Freedom to bury a treasure for the future, so we could choose every happiness that is Right Now.

On Tone 8, we’re changed because we See it with Our Heart. Through the Intention of Divine Will we let go of Human Love and turned our eyes to Divine Love. For a Divine Reason we could let go. Divine Will means the Highest Love is what the Creator would Love for its Only Child, the Scion. Human was given every possible way to Know that Love and Happiness was as easy as a Choice. Through a Divine Relationship, we could Create the Life that would be our Highest Happiness.

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

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 extends the Force of Momentum. Tones 6, 7, 8, and 9 are energies of Peak Performance. On Tone 6 we fall into a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement in Harmony with Divine Will.

The Earth/CABAN trecena is a cycle of “Light” for the purpose to Inspire a Dream of the Vision of Mother Earth our Seed would Know in the future. The 6, 7, 8, 9 uinals are the Peak Cycles of the Tzolk’in harvest. The Season is the Divine Intervention of Reproduction and Creation. Reproduction is an integral part of Human, Divine by Design. Tones 6 and 7, are the Peak Energies of Human performance. Tones 8 and 9, are the Peak Energies of a Divine performance.

On Tone 6 we Know a way of Creation. We Know how to use it. We see where the pattern could take us. On Tone 6 of the Earth/CABAN trecena, this is the Day we Take Off. We can see a pattern thoughts that carried our Consciousness to another place. The small, incremental changes may be the most important. We were meant to experience how far our meager steps can carry us when we are Flowing with the Beauty of Spirit.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. We are dreaming the birth of the New Seed into the world. We see it in all its stages. In the budding, we are showing. We Know something is on the way. Wind/IK holds the Force of Dissemination. IK carried the Creator’s Breath of Creation and holds the Sovereignty of Life.

Signs from Mother Earth

Greetings Kin,

This Sign appeared while I was stacked up in Seattle traffic on the way to my class.

It was overcast and rainy and early accidents had the drive down to stops and starts. I wasn’t afraid of driving, but if I’d ever get there. I was deciding it didn’t matter when I looked up and saw what the Raccoon was saying, right in front of me.

A trickster Raccoon Mother had to nose in here to coax a smile.

love, in lak’ech, Debra

THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN

Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Earth/CABAN trecena.

 

1 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

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 and perpetual motion, Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.
