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

Earth’s Landscape at the Sunrise set against the Background of the Milky Way Galaxy, NASA 29505-1516

Human has barely scratched the surface to see how beautiful we are. The whole picture of Mother Earth comes into view when the Sun is at our back. Only from far away can we take in the view of our landscape in the Milky Way from the angle of Earth’s transit of the Sun.

Kaltenegger, director of the Carl Sagan Institute at Cornell University, and Jackie Faherty, astrophysicist and star catalog expert at the American Museum of Natural History, teamed up to explore it. They used analytical software to comb through a cosmic chart of observed star positions; this data comes via the European Space Agency craft Gaia. 

In our long-running search for extraterrestrial life, we use transits to examine exoplanets, or planets outside our solar system. (We’ve even used transits of Venus to study the solar system.) Starlight passes through the atmosphere of a planet, or is reflected off of it. We can use spectrometry to analyze and gain an understanding of the chemical composition of planetary atmospheres, and so whether they might be friendly to life (as we know it). 

Kaltenegger and Faherty show the perspective from the other end of the telescope—where we’d be the aliens—and show the potential, at least, for advanced life forms. Spectrometric sensing from far away might have picked up our Great Oxidation Event and marked us as a living world.  SOURCE: IEEE.org, a worldwide resource for engineering, computing, and technology information, “Advancing Technology for Humanity”

7 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

The Creation is a dynamic expression and a story shared by the Supreme Lord of Creation that reveals who we are and the Meaning and Purpose for Life on every scale from the micro to the macro. The Truth that stands forever is made visible for us on every scale we use for the Discernment of Knowing. Beyond the visible, Truth bears out the same on scales of Light, Vibration, Colors, Musical Scales, and even the Scales of public opinion. The Truth will always bear out as Common Sense from every angle we could Look to See.

Everything known to Human has been learned from Mother Earth. On a scale of Spiritual Discernment, so can we “Know Thyself” from a Divine Allegory written about us from the Highest Perspective and the Creator’s view of the whole Creation.

Consciousness is the very meaning and purpose of our Life “to know” as the Living Witness of the whole from every Time and Place.

The Kiche name for CABAN is N’oj (N ‘oh), a Sacred Word that defines the Consciousness of Humanity, our Light to See the Meaning of Life.

Ascension of the Serpent/CHICCHAN Trecena


Solar Explosion 2022-09-05; 6:39 PM

This is Old News, but still news to me.  Electronic communications have had interuptions today, so I went to see if there was a solar storm. You can see the moving image on Space.com. The still screenshot doesn’t do justice to an explosion that covers the whole face of the Sun.

My next stop was MayanMajix.com to calculate the Mayan date. It was 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN, another Ascension of CHICCHAN’s Hand of God delivered from Above. I’m still surprised by the synchronicity of the Mayan calendar. I’ve never seen a Solar Explosion like this.

I claim the One that Answers our Prayers is witness to every day, and carries out the Purpose for every Time in our life.

Today, a Hand is offered to Life on Mother Earth, 13 Earth/CABAN. The Maya discovered the Meaning of TIme by our Common Thoughts for every Hour of the Day.

Memorial to my Mother

A Divine Feminine in my life…

The future looked bright for Anna Marie when she was 2 years old. Her childhood took a dark turn the year that followed when my Grandmother Gladys faced another pandemic of Tuberculosis. It was a hard time, passed around, as Census documents Gladys’ moves from one place to another near the end. She died before they invented penicillin. I’ve taken all my COVID shots for her.

In those days, they went out looking for those who were sick, and if they found you ill, or noticed a cough, the health department escorted you to quarantine. No one looks too happy at the last family picture taken close to the end. I still turn to her when I need to forgive.

Her second life started when she was 19. She and my Dad eloped on April Fool’s Day as soon as he returned from service. For 75 years they’ve been April Fools. They never knew a time apart.

She came from a long line of teachers, preachers, and piano players. She made sure all her children learned to play the piano. She always rounded us up at Christmas to sang carols around the piano.  She played the organ in church in later years.  She was an artist as well, though she discounted her own talent.

She had a penchant for manners and proper language. She corrected us when we said, “I got.” I don’t remember a curse word spoken in our house. Children during the time of TB were taught to behave, since the chances were 30% that your parents would die, and you’d be raised by someone else. Manners were a matter of life and death, the same for her fundamental Christian faith. She prayed for my Salvation for following a Spiritual Path. She said she prayed for me every day. Still, I found comfort in her prayers through the hard times. Our line is English/Irish/Scottish. Her freckles face went well with her auburn hair.

13 Earth / CABAN – Ascension: Day 13

13 Earth / CABAN

A Day of Ascension to Honor the Truth of Answered Prayers, and to Offer a Blessing to the Divine Feminine in us all, and Mother Earth. CABAN is the Time for the purpose to Love with all our heart.

Greetings Kin,

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth and her Movement that Creates Time. The Elders on the Medicine Circle path say, “Mother Earth was the first and enduring gift that was Given to Human Beings by the Creator – to Be Alive and Living in a Living World.” It takes a 3rd perspective to see how Divine a Life of Being and Consciousness really is, when it was freely given by Love.

Counting our Blessings we feel a Human debt that’s long over-due in our Heart. We Ascend with a Reason to follow our Divine Mother around. We learn everything Divine from her Beauty. We didn’t have to have a Divine Human Mother to see what the whole world imagined her to be. The REAL Divine One guided us to see the Truth of it ALL. She taught us to keep going and all things would work out in the end. Once in a while we’re in the place where we can see when she was right.

13 Earth/CABAN is the Answer to our Prayer, that every dream she shared, and everything she saw in us was possible and it’s True. We were both born together, as both ways were over and both new lives began. We know a bond that can never be broken, one who was the Divine Provision of Motherhood for us. A Divine One showed up when it was a matter of life or death.

Tone 13 is the Ascension, the Answer to a Prayer. Something that was heavy has been given over to Love. We found that with all our limitations we can  give our own Life a little push, when we need to “even the Divine score.” If we used the “Divine Sum of the Whole” as we went along, and we made the wrong turn. We have TIME to make up the difference with every Higher Creation of one another. Something in the Wind that’s a TRUTH of Love will disseminate a happy thought they could follow.

Number 13 is the symbol of theurgy, the power given to Human through our rituals and sacred ceremonies, to call upon the Divine Intervention of the Higher One. The 1st time we ask was the Choice. We didn’t have to ask again. We ask to Remember.

CABAN is the Source of Consciousness to Know everything. The faculties of discernment are illustrated on the glyph. From the East begins the light of an idea, along a linear path of Reason. We see “what it is.” That turns a thought into our Imagination where we wonder “what it means.” If we don’t see anything meaningful to us, that’s where the thought ends. The 3rd thought of Divine Trinity is the One we have to Lean to find outside of our Human train of thought. The rising circles represent an application of Reason to apply a Divine Truth to the Whole Equation. We add the Truth of Divine Possibility with every little piece of Truth we claim, when it’s the Power of Love.

We were raised to live this New Life in the Haab year, 9 Earth/CABAN. Will we remember what the Mother told us we should always do at the end of every creation? What was the meaning for the Time when “the creation is finished?” Each round of the Tzolk’in brings us here, and every Time, Our Life will “never look better” than it does in the Moment we Know Mother Earth is the Answer to our Prayers.

Human has learned everything we know from Mother Earth. She is our Divine One for comparison to everything else.  She taught us who we would grow up to be. CABAN holds the Element of Fire to burn the Truth into our Soul. CABAN is the clarion call to Move on our Life and to Live with all our Heart. We’re going to fall down, and what matters is the double-down we lean twice into our Love for another.

13 Earth/CABAN is the clarion call To Be Who and What we Are, and to Live with ALL our Heart. CABAN marks a Divine Migration of the Heart.

From Higher Ground we see the way and we want to start something new, or try again to make an old Dream New Again.

By the Aztec tradition, the days marked by Ollin are not the Time to fool around. Now we hold the Wisdom for every step. We spent a year Divinely Separated under the Intention of 9 Earth/CABAN. A Divine Mother says the Creation was “finished” by the One, and we need Time to see the Whole the same way. We all belong in the same Universe.

It’s all clear now and if we add the Patience to think, we’ll Know how we’ll forget this Moment of Truth again. Now is the Time to step back when we can see the Whole Picture, while we still remember how it feels. We were given One thing to turn to, day or night, that never forgets us and draws us in when she hears Human’s cry.

Love that’s ours to share.

13 Earth/CABAN is a Divine Initiation of the Truth that will carry us through Life, the Love of a Divine Mother that will perpetually move us on to the Next Higher Truth of Love that was True ALL the Time.

The Answer to our Prayer is written on the Mother’s Face. We know who we are and what we’re supposed to be, when we were just Being. A Divine Father loves us too and beams with pride in the little ways we reflect the image. A Father can see himself in the way we move our hand, when in the whole picture he never noticed it before in himself.

We’re living for the Reason of a Divine Father who wanted to see everything that shines. A Divine Mother makes sure he never compares us to anyone else.

The Love we see in each other makes a Divine Impression. Life looks beautiful when someone is happy to see us around, just for the company. CABAN is the Way we were given to always know the Truth is Love.

To all my relations, may we give the Divine Mother our Love and Adoration. May we uphold the Divinity of the Mother in us that keeps the world alive.

May we think again about a dream we had before we were sent to our room. A Divine Mother didn’t mean it was over. At least give a second look to see if it’s the One. It’s more likely that she made us wait, for the Time that would reveal how long we were waiting for the second chance. Now’s the Time to move ahead. When we look back to see it again, Now we KNOW something, we didn’t know then.

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m grateful we only have to open our eyes to see Beauty in front of our face. Mom will live on in the Water that Flows and in the Clouds Above.

HERE WE ARE: A whirlwind within  a whirlwind of Life and Light in the Universe. A Divine Mother teaches us the way of the Golden Rule.

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.

Divine Meanings and Intentions of Time

Family Sukkah

Comparison of Jewish tradition to the Mayan Calendars’ Order of Time

The synchronicity of Time between this Tzolk’in’s round of Human Time aligned with the Jewish calendar keeps calling me back to a comparison of one to another.

Beyond Kom Kippur is the tradition of Sukkot. Jewish tradition orders 7 days of living under the stars (October 10-16, 2022 – beginning from Sundown, October 9, 2022). During this time prayers are offered to remember “God provides.” Yom Kippur was a “first light” of the Truth of our Redemption offered from above. Atonement is a revelatory experience – an Offering of Divine Inspiration from Above. As beings of Duality, we don’t claim the Truth as our own until we’ve accomplished a personal experience of the Truth.

The Truth of our own experience completes our comprehension of the Truth that transforms a foundation of unconscious thoughts. By the Mayan count of time, it takes 7 days of experience to comprehend a higher truth (ie. seeing all that is, and all that is not) by Human faculties of Reason.

The Sukkot tradition honors the marvels and miracles performed by God to free the Israelites from bondage in Egypt, ordered as a Celebration of Divine Truth. We could consider that it takes 7 days for Human to comprehend “what it means” for the future. “What it means” finishes Human’s comprehension of the Big Picture – the same as Tone 9 orders the Intention of Patience to See/Know/Comprehend the Big Picture. The Sukkah is the temporary shelter built outside to represent the time when God sustained life by a Hand of Divine Authority as the Divine Protector.

(AKA N’oj (n’ oh) by K’iche tradition

6 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Eagle/MEN guided us to LOOK to see the future we can Know is the Truth when we’ve chosen to lean into the Wind. The Wind beneath our wings is the Word of Truth, the Promise of the Sacred Exchange for every sacrifice of the Heart.

The Gift of Knowing the Divine Mysteries is opened to us when we combine the Vision of the Eagle and the Owl. From the view behind us, we can see how Forgiveness lifted the weight off our shoulders. We inherently know we are less than worthy of Divine Blessings when we’re holding a grudge. Forgiveness restores our Hope to see a Divine future.

We can forgive for no other reason than the Truth that it takes TIME to know, and Time to accept our own responsibility for the Choice to Love without conditions. We waste a lot of Time and our faculties for discernment, when our thoughts are occupied by the injustices imposed by the choices of another Human Being. We waste hours focused on imposing our own will on another, the same as they imposed on us… only we declared the RIGHT to do it (ie. they did it first).

When we’ve seen the fault on both sides, we release another from a human imposition of thoughts. When we see clearly, they are offered the freedom to see clearly, too. Thoughts can be turned to the offering of Understanding. We all make unconscious choices for reasons that we thought were important – to our ego. It wasn’t personal.

We create polarities through the vibration of our thoughts. When we forget all the possibilities, we don’t know what we’re doing. We cast characters and illusions of darkness, vibrations of resistance that push others away without all the facts of a matter.

Published: July 9, 2020 (07/09/2020)
5 Earth/CABAN

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 – The Truth Within

The Truth Within

Knowing the Truth in the world is an impossibility, when we only exist as a cast of characters. Home alone is the place I know everything that’s real, aside from an outside characterization that can’t see a dream behind closed doors. Time for waiting is good for the Truth to sink in – apart from everything in the world, it is well with my soul.

Every Sacred Ceremony carried out by Human Beings is an exercise of “blood, sweat, and tears.” We reach for something that WE can’t make happen. The Time we call for a Sacred Purpose will always have a Divine Effect. 

Peace of Mind is the foundation for Happiness. That’s the easiest way to learn “the other.”
