5 Earth / CABAN – A Guiding Light: Day 5 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN, A GUIDING LIGHT

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 is a day of Empowerment. The Center of the Cube symbolizes human’s central, intelligent, organizing force for managing the resources, substance, and knowledge for application. Tone 5 gather’s all the resources for the last steps of our climb.

On Tone 5 we take inventory of our Spiritual Tools, the Truth of the Power of Love and the Divine Resources of Wisdom at Hand. Tone 5 represents our Inherent thoughts to discern the Means and the Way for creation.

Earth/CABAN is a Day Sign of Empowerment. CABAN is symbolized as Mother Earth, as the Source of Everything Known to Human. From the micro to the macro, Mother Earth proves the Integrity of a Divine Design.

The K’iche Maya Day Sign is No’j, a Sacred Word that marks a day of wisdom and knowledge. The glyph illustrates 3 Sources of Knowing that make up our Body of Consciousness. The horizontal line represents human’s linear thoughts. The wavy line symbolizes our imagination, and the floating circles, our Spirit’s Consciousness of the Divine.

CABAN resides in the East, the Direction of the Sunrise and the Element of Fire. From the East the Sun brings Divine Inspiration for a New Day. Fire is the Element with the power of transmutation – changing things from one form of being to another.

CABAN is a nahaul/essence of Movement. Mother Earth creates Time by Movement. Time is the Divine Means through which Human is offered the Wisdom of Experience. To draw from the resources of All Knowledge, we have to keep moving on.

4 Earth / CABAN – Vision Quest: Day 4 of 13

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX – WALKING IN BALANCE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 introduces the Intention of Stability. On Tone 3 we’ve made a decision to Move on an Intention. The next inherent thought of Creation is to size up the task. We measure the boundaries and parameters to define the “rules of the game.” The stability of a Spiritual Intention will rely on the direction of our thoughts.

The trecena of Jaguar/IX is our 1st Human journey on Earth, intending to walk in the Truth of Higher Power Above. The prevailing guidance shared by the Jaguar is the “earth magic” of Gratitude. Wisdom/CIB reminded us to Use our Time to make Wise Choices, and to Remember that Forgiveness is the Key to the Kingdom.

Shape-shifting into the Jaguar, we can look down at each step to be Grateful for where we are, and Know our Heart is following a Higher Path Above that we WILL See with 20/20 vision when we have reached the end. The shaman is a Spiritual Warrior that intends to carry it’s Love and Gratitude to the End. IX holds the Heart of Compassionate Love and the Consciousness for Divine Discernment. We will follow a path that is totally invisible to the eyes of Human Beings, and Invest ALL our Heart in a Path we can FEEL is Seen by the Creator. Every Conscious step we take will leave its footprints of Light.

Earth/CABAN represents the Consciousness of Knowing our Oneness with the Whole Creation of Mother Earth. IX is devoted in its Gratitude to the Mother, the source of everything Human knows from the micro to the macro. Earth’s distinguishing Beauty is Movement and Life. Movement creates Time and a story of Life from a beginning to an end. The life of all things is defined by a Divine Design. A Human Seed will be what it is intended to be.

The glyph illustrates a way we are Designed to Move and to Conceive the Truth that’s REAL. To survey the Landscape of our Divine Mission we have to Know Thyself and what we will be inclined to do as a Human Being. To build a foundation we’ll conceive a strategy for all 4 directions of our Life. How will we approach the South, to uphold the Intention of Right Relationship? How will we face the West, the darkness of the Unknown? In the North, what will be the Most Important Wisdom to Remember? And from the Light in the East, how will we Know a Divine Discernment of Truth from our own “wishful  thinking” influenced by our ego?

The symbols on the glyph illustrate 3 Human faculties of thought through which to make a Discernment of Divine Truth. We will be Divinely Moved by the Truth of our Spirit. The straight line represents the linear thoughts of Human reason. The wavy line is Imagination. The 3rd symbol of floating circles is the Divine Thought, the question of Divine Possibilities. To move forward in the Truth of Divine Wisdom, we need to use all 3 faculties of thought. 1st we see what the situation looks like from Human’s perspective. 2nd, we imagine what our creation could be by what we can do. The 3rd question is the Divine One, “What is Divinely possible?”

Today when we ask those questions, our Human Mind is prepared to share a Divine Truth of Spirit. We can See the Truth of our “I Am” as a Consciousness of Spirit. Like the imprint of Divine Identity, we Know who we are and what we are Divinely Destined to Become. We realize the Truth of our own Divine Justice, for a Choice we made for the Highest Meaning and Purpose. We Know the Future within our Grasp, and now it is only a matter of Movement and Time. CABAN is a Time and Place of Divine Consciousness when we Claim a Divine Truth of Who we are, and we are compelled, like a sounding alarm, to Move and to Live with ALL our Heart.

A Testimony to Mother Earth: 10 Earth/CABAN

The Olympic Forest along the coast of the Washington Peninsula, a place with all the right conditions for the Beauty of Earth that manifests from the Light in the color of Green. Minisa once said that the Green of Mother Earth is the most difficult for any artist to match of all the colors in the spectrum.

Greetings Kin,

I was deeply touched by this post about Mother Earth and the beauty found by children in the small places of Mother Nature, when they are left to their own unbridled discoveries. I love it all the more, seeing it again. It proved to me the Power of the Mother’s Love that IS our Experience of Mother Earth.

Primary Experiences in Nature

by Laura Grace Weldon

“These places may seem inconsequential to adults, who tend to view nature as somewhere else, somewhere pristine and unspoiled. In reality nature is constantly around us and in us. Giving kids freedom to explore, observe, play, and get dirty allows them to make these tiny places a whole universe.”

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

Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

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.

10 Earth / CABAN – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 10 of 13

THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT – THE ASCENDING 13-DAY CYCLE OF THE TZOLK’IN ROUND OF HUMAN CREATION

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Earth / CABAN

“Who are you? What do you want?”

Greetings Kin,

10 Earth/CABAN is the final Manifestation of Ascension to a Truth of a New Life. Earth/CABAN holds the Element of Fire to the Core of its Being. The Fire in us is the “pure energy” of Life Force – our Passion, Response to Divine Inspiration, and the Power of Love. When the flames are stirred within us, we Have to Move. A Divine Fire within compels us to charge toward our own Life Mission.

The Tzolk’in is an Inheritance that left the Wisdom of 20 different perspectives through which we could conceive the Beauty. We were set on a course of 360 degrees, marked by 20 points, spaced perfect where we’d shift a point of view. Where did the Maya get 20 to define these critical crossings? By the count of our fingers, we would remember. We wouldn’t leave anyone out by an all-in-one count.

The Maya were among the first to conceive the zero… “all that is not.” Their zero isn’t “nothing.” To the Maya “all that is not” is a potential for “all possibilities.” Maybe we’ve only begun to understand that zero. Is it a perspective of a “glass half full” or “glass half empty?” Looking at 10 as a symbol of Manifestation, 9 is the highest sum that can be invested “in the lower place.” Investing the whole in a “higher one” manifests the zero of “all possibility” and “all that could be.” We would never be left with “nothing” but “all possibility.”

There is more and more to see through ALL the aspects of the Tzolk’in.  Tone 9 completes the “balance” below. The first 7 Tones are the Human steps we climb by Intention. We draw on 6 Divine Aspects to reach the 7 – 7 steps to see something different all around. Sometimes we can’t believe our own eyes. We have to Believe to SEE it. The 8th Tone of “pure spirit” is the beginning of the Divine Intervention. What we’ve seen with our own eyes, a Divine Consciousness will reveal through our heart. The Investment of Heart and mind transforms a Human perspective to a Divine perspective. We can believe our eyes. The last step to the “sum of a whole 9” is seeing and believe the Whole Truth, when we realize the Truth fulfills a Higher Meaning and Purpose. When we see that a Truth we claim holds a Divine Value Above, we will Know WE were meant to be. We made something Real for God. We can give something back.

We prove to our self through every climb how we create our own Faith to Believe, when we keep looking and keep seeing things from another point of view. We have to see things from a different point of view to change our own point of view. That’s how to create Love. The only thing Human has to give back is a Dream from our Imagination. Everything else was given to us from Mother Earth. Through a Dream of Love, we hold an Offering that’s REAL when we Believe. We know we hold the Creation of Highest Value to “Love Back.” In that Whole Investment of Love, we ignite the passion for Divine Love, we put into motion a Communion of Perpetual Exchange of Giving and Receiving Love. We fall under the spell of Love when our hearts are Trained to the Vibration of Pure Spirit that holds an even Higher Value as Compassionate Love, one Heart invested in the Happiness of the Other. We say, “I Love you.” God says, “I Love you more.” Then it begins, “I love YOU more.” The Divine Argument goes on forever and we can only See how Love Grows forever in the Giving Back.

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

Greetings Kin,

We celebrate a New Year of the Haab in the Northern Hemisphere. K’inich Ahau heralded the first Light of 9 Earth/CABAN as the Year Bearer to lead a new Solar cycle of planetary intention. Tone 9 Completes, holding the Intention of Patience to See the Big Picture. Earth/CABAN is the Movement that creates Time, and the experiences that Define our Identity by the Choices we make. The Cherokee Heron, symbolizes Life as a perpetual movement toward the next Human field of Abundance.

On Mother Earth there is always a field of Abundance for the Wisdom to Create the treasures today for the Miracles of tomorrow. In the K’iche tradition, the sign N’oj is the Sacred Word that defines a Consciousness of Identity. It’s said that days marked by the Ollin, Caban, N’oj, and Heron, are marked by a Light of Knowing who we are. The Aztec Ollin lies at the center of the stone calendar marking 20 places in Time. This is NOT the time to go along. This Time is marked as a cycle that will define us, a time to make our own Wise choices, and to Live with all our heart.

Today begins a Solar cycle that will share the Big Picture of what Divine Human Beings were intended to be, the Heroes that God dreamed in the End and Loved enough to create Time to witness a Miracle from the beginning.

May we give thanks for the Day and Honor the Divine Experience planned ahead, waiting to be seen and known for All Time. May the Miracle be that Human Beings divinely see and acknowledge how much we love one another. Earth/CABAN holds the Element of Fire and can strike the Flames of Love in our heart.

May we begin the New Year with a Blessing to remember the Mother that offers us everything “To Be.” May our Offering be our Dream, so she can give it another life as God’s Highest Manifestation.

love, in lak’ech, Debra

DEDICATED TO IAN XEL LUNGOLD

Ian Xel Lungold and Michael Shore, MayanMajix.com

The journal for the Offering/MULUC trecena is dedicated to Ian Xel Lungold. This is the Galactic Week of Ian’s Destiny Kin, 12 Sun/AHAU. Ian will be honored on my trip to the Yucatan over the Day of the Dead observances in gratitude for my first introduction to the Mayan Calendar. Ian’s Destiny was to share the Light of Illumination (Sun/AHAU) for Divine Understanding (Tone 12). Thank you Ian!

My deepest Thanks and Appreciation are extended to Michael Shore who has preserved  Ian’s wisdom on MayanMajix.com, and for being a friend and helper on my own path. Thank you Michael!

“It is consciousness that divides creation into its separate parts. It is only when you are conscious of something(s) that you can appreciate that part of creation by and with your discernment.

Your life is peppered with moments when you noticed some details of your environment or situation. Like, seeing the “Veins in the leaf” or the beauty of color and pattern in a butterfly’s wings. Of course you have your own examples but each of them were the exercise of your consciousness noticing the differences of stimuli available in that moment. The more conscious you are, the more you can take in effortlessly.

With consciousness, each thing in our lives can stand out and be appreciated. With lower levels of consciousness the tendency is to group or lump things together into a grey threatening mass. What I think this whole journey of conscious evolution is about, is the increasing ability to be conscious of, appreciate and express gratitude for all of Creation piece by piece until we get it all…” ~ From an Article by Ian Lungold

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. A Transformation of Spirit is completed through a Realization of Higher Purpose.

CABAN raises our Consciousness to the Movement of Mother Earth that Creates Time through which we could have a dynamic experience of the Creator’s Love. Through the movement of Mother Earth we can experience the Dawn, the Sunrise that brings Light to the Darkness.

Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth. The K’iche Maya call it Noj, the Day Sign of Knowledge. Mother Earth is the Source of everything Human knows.

Noj is revered as a Sacred Word, meaning all the capabilities of the Human Mind. Noj is Human’s means of Movement with a Divine Meaning and Purpose. Noj is the Force that influences us to move by Divine Intention and Be Seen in the Identity of our Spirit.

The Cherokee Day Sign, the Heron, is a nuhaul of Movement, living a life of perpetual migration. The Heron is the symbol of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. The Aztec Sign the Ollin, marks the center of the Aztec calendar and the 20 positions of the all-in-one. The Face at the center of the Ollin is K’inich Ahau, the Sun shining the Light of Illumination.

2 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 represents the 2nd Divine Consciousness as the Human Being manifested by Love. Without a 2 there was no way to Love Back and Forth. 2 is Sacred as a Reflection of Divine Love, and Human’s way of reflecting Love is Duality, to Know one thing and conceive the Truth of another. It was a gift of thought to our Consciousness, and a capacity to conceive all kinds of Beauty and Love.

Through this capacity of Duality we would have a way to conceive our own Divine Identity through experiences we would all know equally, and could make a Discernment of Love we would know was given in Harmony and Equality. God designed the capacity to share Feelings of Love, from within and beyond our own Circle of Life and Consciousness. Did you ever think that when you were feeling an experience, that someone else could Feel YOUR Feelings? Have you felt anyone else’s feelings?

FEELING is the Highest Communion with God. The HIGHEST Prayers we offer to God aren’t spoken, but shared directly from a heart that’s been broken open. God wanted our Communion to be remembered, and we ALWAYS remember Truth that is associated with a Feeling. We’ve known for a long time that a life can be changed by a Spiritual Experience – and that we have to reach to a bottom to find it. We find it there, and God will help us raise it to the Highest High so we can never fear there’s a bottomless pit again. Knowing a Divine hand would never let us reach the bottom… our Divine Justice could only be to realize we ARE FLYING. From the Leap that falls, we’d feel the Wind and seize the Power to Soar.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth, the first Movement of Love created that dances and spins in mid-air, held in a perfect place by movements that go around in circles. CABAN is more than a symbol of just the Earth of Mother Earth. It’s about a perpetual movement of Love that keeps on going through darkness and light, and kept on course by a cauldron of FIRE within. CABAN holds the Power of Transmutation, in its Element of Fire that changes one thing into an entirely different form of It’s SELF.

CABAN is about Movement and Time and about the Synchronicity of Time that is the Proof that Love was meant to always be. Only through Time would a being of duality FEEL something different than what was Known… and IMAGINE what’s so different about THIS Time and Place. ALL Time was measured for God’s Divine Justice and the Expression of God’s Love. A minute wouldn’t be lost. We wouldn’t see the Forest for the trees if we could always see all of it. God would be right back where it all started being ONE that was all time, and everything that was or could ever be – no way to see a minute of it, because the stories were already told and the last page already revealed the ending.

Time is Beautiful and God Created it and Knew the Perfect way to always use it so a Human that had to carry the Burden would know such Beauty, that they would be willing to wait as long as it takes to see it Once Again. How could the Ascended Ones carry on forever waiting for us, if that weren’t true?

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

THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena, the number that reflects Abundance and Infinity. 8 is the Number of “pure spirit.” Tone 8 begins the Transformation Phase of the trecena that’s guided by Divine Agency. On the descent of the pyramid, there is a shift to a new Force of Energy. It’s compared to a descent, an Unseen Force that draws us to Higher Ground. Equity is the Balance, and Truth that is Fair.

Tone 8 is the Sacred Exchange for the Offering that was our Human climb. We are at One in Spirit and everything that is Life is the Spirit. Our Consciousness holds the history of who we are. Humans never feel their “age” in the Consciousness of Identity. We change, but the One that was changed is always the Same One. We are living to experience. We aren’t robots. We’re just living inside one, that makes choices to survive.

From the One Divine Consciousness we can see the Beauty of the Design. We were given Consciousness to experience Life. Who’s Life would we choose? The Heart of Earth and Heart of Sky intended us to be.  The Consciousness of Humanity is the Scion.

Earth/CABAN is Mother Earth and the symbol of Movement. The Maya See and Acknowledge the Earth as the Source of all Knowledge and Wisdom, accomplished by Movement and Time. The Ollin symbol at the center of the Aztec calendar is their Day Sign that simply means Movement. Movement is a sign of a Life. It has a story that is everything it has ever been, and could be. The Maya call it N’oj, Awareness of Identity.

Within the glyph are symbols for a straight line (human reason), a wavy line (human imagination), and rising circles of thought (Divine Inspiration). Our thoughts are Whole when we use the 3 together.

THE HOLY DAY: DAY OF AWARENESS AND CONSCIOUSNESS
8 Earth/CABAN is a Holy Day of Observance for a celebration of Knowing We ARE. We can SEE our Whole Self. 8 CABAN is a personal observance. The Heart of Earth, the Human Consciousness, is opened to the Truth about Life.
CABAN lies in the East holding the Element of Fire. Fire holds the power of transmutation. CABAN guides us to Light the Candles at the Altar and Bring and Offering to Mother Earth.

6 Wind / IK – A Dream of Mother Earth: Day 6 of 13

THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 is the Intention of Flow. Momentum is created through a rhythm and pattern of movement. The Peak Energy of 6 is compared to the energy of a great athlete, when the sport becomes an Expression of the Art. The Earth/CABAN trecena of “Light” is a cycle that raises Consciousness to an Art for Living.

Tone 6, is the hour of creation we find our fastest, easiest way. We’re “on a roll.” The momentum of Tone 6 facilitates a change and dynamic developments. Peak Tones are human’s best days for any movement or communication.

Wind/IK is the Creator’s Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit. Air is the critical element for human to Live and hold Consciousness. The North represents the Wisdom of the Whole, as a Divine “One.”

The Element of Air is our Common connection. We all draw from the same field of thoughts with every breath. God holds the Final Authority in the Wind. God always gives us our Last Breath.
