7 Jaguar / IX – A Divine Gift of Ascension: Day 7 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

The Peak Tone 7 represents the top of the pyramid and the end of a very long climb of Spirit. The 7th Tone upholds the Great Law of Creation that maintains the Balance of the Universe, “As Above, So Below.” Whatever is created in one realm will be balanced in all others.

At a new Peak of Consciousness we’re given a view all around of everything “that is” and everything “that isn’t.” A Divine Cause has a Divine Effect. Tone 7 offers a Reflection of the Above from the Below.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit. The Jaguar resides in the North. Holding the Element of Air, the Jaguar exists as the Invisible Breath of Life and Spirit. The Jaguar is the shape-shifter capable to cross from one dimension to another. The Air holds all the faculties of thought and Consciousness. The Jaguar can move from the dimension of the mind to the realm of the Heart.

The Jaguar holds the “Earth Magic” of Gratitude, seeing Mother Earth as the Source of every Blessing. IX hears the Heartbeat of Mother Earth.

6 Reed / BEN – A Divine Gift of Ascension: Day 6 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 6 generates the Momentum of Flow through a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. On Tone 5 we surveyed our Resources for Creation and lined up the Tools. We turn a system and pattern of movement into production. The energy of Tone 6 is compared to a great athlete who has practiced all the steps, and now applies them to the performance of the Meaning and Purpose.

Tone 6 guides us to Go with the Flow of Spirit. When we make a discernment of Our Truth in any experience, we will stand on our own Truth.

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light of Home and Family. BEN holds very High Ideals and Expectations. Reed/BEN is the state of mind held by a leader of a family, the Wisdom of Knowing what we say is never as important as our own demonstration of what we believe.

Reed/BEN is the symbol of an altar with two channels of Light above shining down upon the two prayer mats below, where Human kneels in Humility to Two Lights Shining from Above.

Reed reminds us that to open the channels of a Divine Communion we have to be the “hollow bone.” We have to be Open and Free of our Human flesh for the Divine Light of Consciousness to shine through. We have to set aside our ego that would tell us ours is the ONLY way. Road/EB shared the Wisdom to Know that while every path may seem to be going off in different directions, for every Intention of Knowing that began from Love, we will all find ourselves together when we reach our One Divine Destination.

12 Reed / BEN – A New Mission of Spirit: Day 12 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Reed/BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. Extending the Gift of Retrospection we can Divinely Comprehension the Wisdom of our Experience. On Tone 12 we are changed by a new Truth that moves from the Head to the Heart.

12 Reed/BEN is Kin 233, the 12th Tone in the 12th uinal of the Tzolk’in. We are drawing together the Understanding of a harvest cycle of Spiritual Growth.

Reed/BEN is the guiding Light for Family and Home. Reeds are tough an analytical. They know the rules of order that bring Peace and Harmony to all their relations. Reed takes up the cause to establish Divine Authority. Reed/BEN guides us to bend our own rules of Love to allow others their own Freedom to Choose. Reed/BEN carries out the Deer’s Mission at the altar of Home.

Our Home is the circle we drew around our Creation, defining our place for communion with the Creator. Within our Circle is the Whole of the Creator’s Creation of Beauty, Mother Earth. Through her we can see all the Perfect Beauty wrought by the Creator’s Breath. We can see what we are made of and the Beauty that is ours To Be through a Divine Transformation by Spirit. Existing in this place of Home, all the dreams we would manifest can be born from the Source of Divine Inspiration, beginning and ending under the Authority of the One Divine Source of Unconditional Love.

5 Reed / BEN – A Miracle of Atonement: Day 5 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 is the day of Empowerment. On Tone 5 we take inventory of all our Resources of Spirit. 5 symbolizes the center of the cube, and a central force within that directs the application of Spiritual Tools for a Divine Intention of Spirit. Tone 5 prepares us to make a Leap of Faith to Higher Ground.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign that is the Guiding Light of Home and Family. Reed/BEN marks the destiny of one who will take up the cause. Those born Reed often become the ones to take care of the sick and elderly. Holding High Ideals and Expectations, Reed intends to bring peace, harmony, and order to all their relations.

Reed/BEN inspires the Love of Family. Reed’s perspective is the Consciousness we take on when we become the head of a family. Human is inclined to Live by our Highest Ideals, when there are others looking up to us.

The Reed/BEN glyph illustrates an altar. Above are channels of Divine Light, and below the prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. Reed represents the channel through which we hold a Divine Communion with the Creator. To draw down the Light, the channel must be open. The Elders taught that the Reed requires us to be the “hollow bone.” When “flesh is removed from the bone” we are open to receive the Light. Our “flesh” is the Ego. Reed/BEN brings us to our knees to take on the Light of Divine Consciousness.

11 Reed / BEN – Vision Quest: Day 11 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 guides an Intention of Resolution. 11 tunes us in like a Divine set of antennae to a Higher Frequency of Consciousness. Through a Vision of Higher Clarity we Resolve the Divine Way forward to claim our place in The Creation. The 11th Hour from dawn is the evening before sunset.

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home. Tone 11 is correspondent as the state of mind. Our OWN Time is the reason for everything we do in the world.

Reed/BEN resides in the East, the place where a New Light Dawns. A New Light is Dawning on the Solstice, a Time and Place to see where we are and claim our place in the Universe. Tone 11 facilitates dynamic change through simplification and “fitting in.” All the Signs are Symbols of being in the Divine Place we’re meant to Be.

The Perspective of Reed/BEN is the Consciousness of the real meaning and purpose of everything. We LIVE for the Time when what we do is all our choice. Reed/BEN holds very High Expectations. Knowing the value of free time, the Reed in us, is the shadow that rules with a “steel pipe.” We think of what we SHOULD be doing. The advice given for Reed is to bend like a garden hose. Blessings will flow out.

We’re supposed to be doing what we feel like doing that makes us happy. Is that POSSIBLE? It would be awesome if it is, and surely it COULD be. One thing I’ve learned is Consciousness allows me more choices. I believe in a Time and Place for everything. I’ve seen Miracles in changes that I didn’t work for, but that changed on their own. ALL we have to do is be Willing and Ask for anything our Heart Desires. Even better if it’s something we can’t seem to pull off on our own.

Our best demonstration of Divinity is not perfection, but where we turn for perfection when we fail from our Human limitations. Claiming who we are as Human is as important as claiming who we are in Spirit.

I HAD to go to the doctor by the end of June for a wellness program at work. I’d waited till the 11th hour. It was in synchronicity with a shift of Balance. I told a friend that getting my life in balance was a major intention for 2019-2020 and how happy I was to find this doctor at a Natural Clinic. It was a dream from unconscious thoughts I’ve been thinking forever… wanting to get my life in Balance, and seeming to make no headway at all.

It was a happy beginning for a new journey of thoughts and ways. I can already see the changes that will happen with a Conscious plan. (I started another journal to record my physical life, what I’m doing for my body. It’s starting simple with a little more water, breathing, a short walk, and eating more vegetables. I can do it with a partner.

This is a YEAR of BALANCE on a Planetary Scale. The Year Bearer of the 365-day Haab calendar is 7 Road/EB – the top of the pyramid of a Human Climb to Destiny, the Balancing Place. This is an Important Haab year for Humanity and the Road to our Destiny. On August 22, 2019, 10 Eagle/MEN in the 13th uinal of Ascension, we can expect to see our future, and all the things possible within our grasp.

The Elders always remind us to look across the Medicine Wheel to know where you are. The flowers blooming on our branches were the Seeds from last Fall, in the Unknown of the West. In the Winter we dreamed of the Seed’s life in the Spring. The first buds were evidence of abundance in our future. Now the blooms are open and the fruit will soon appear on the vine. The Bee Keepers are spreading their honey around. What was your Dream last Fall?

October 31, 2018 manifested the pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam and a Dream to stand together on Holy Ground. It was 13 years since Ian’s passing and marked his Mayan Destiny Kin, 12 AHAU. It was 13 Sak/Zak on the Haab calendar, the month the hunters asked for forgiveness for shedding the blood of living things. It was a place Intended as Oneness for the Whole. The Seeds of Fall’s harvest believed in Miracles coming true.

The Solstice is a Universal Event, the Movement of Earth that holds all things in the Balance. She sways so that all living things on Earth will have their Seasons of Light and Dark. Do you see the beginning of a new season in your life?

The Haab Month Sek/Tzec
The 365-day Haab month reflects Intention on a planetary scale. Today is 0 Sek, the first day of the Haab month (20 days, numbered 0-19) observed as the celebration of Honey. Offerings are made to the four Chaaks (rain gods) at the Bee Keeper Festival, and the rims of offering plates were covered in honey. The Spring Honey was shared by the hive owners with the community.

Reed/BEN is aligned to share the Sweetness of Love. We have learned from the Dog that each Human must make their own Divine Journey of Consciousness. We are meant to Own the Truth that when WE Ask, WE Receive just as we are. To Believe in our Self we must claim all the credit for the Choice.

Reed is associated with the “hollow bone,” the teaching that the human flesh must be removed for the Light to Shine through the open channel to the Creator. Our Human “flesh” is the ego, our own determination of how things “should be.” A prayer for Divine Will allows us to be happy, just as it gives us the Inner Strength to stand on Faith in adversity.

Reed/BEN is a day observed to Bless the Home, to See and Acknowledge the Blessing of Family and Community. The Maya still observe Reed/BEN as a day to not only to resolve family relationships, but to check in on neighbors, like family. The point is not to check up on whether things are “right or wrong” but to offer a helping hand. I was divinely reminded how important a helping hand can be.

To all my relations, may we remember how Divine it Is to Know we are Enough, more than enough. May we give thanks for the Divine Provision for every part of us to be happy. When we are Conscious and Willing to move on a Divine Command, we are always in the right Time and Place. Human needs time to Dream and be Happy.

May we Resolve that a prayer for Divine Will means there is a Time and Place for our Dream to come True. God Knows our Heart’s Desire. May we remember the Power in every New Beginning, and begin a new Season in gratitude for the birds and the bees, and the Season that manifests the Dream of Spring, promising the Fruit of our Spirit, producing even stronger Seeds this Fall. May we Kneel in Faith that a Divine Creator marked a place of Light for us.

in lak’ech, I am another you

Debra, Jaguar Spirit, 9 Eagle/MEN

11 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)

Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.

Reed/BEN: Reed persons are the spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. They are competent speakers who will take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, Reeds endeaver to bring peace, harmony, and order to all of their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation, many have marriage or business problems because of inflexible views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.

Cherokee, Reed I’hya: Symbol-Reed is the Earth, reflection of the Star Chaga of Pollux. Reed made up the Magician Twins who led the journey to bring back to life the daughter of the Sun. The Casket is Gemini. Energy for Intellectual minds, creation, re-creation, new directions, breaking the ties that bind.  A trailblazer and leader. From the East, direction of success and happiness, no matter what route is taken, always ending up in the Light.

4 Reed / BEN – A Manifestation of Love: Day 4 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 is a force of Stability for Spiritual Growth. The Creator symbolized Stability as the cube, a stable form. A cube can hold its position with 6 equal sides. The stability of a cube is increased exponentially by equally expanding dimensions.

Plato wrote about the dimensions of form and conceived the “platonic solid forms.”  He associated each of the 4 primary forms with the classical elements of Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. Earth was associated with the cube, with 4 equal dimensions around, equal to its Above and Below. Earth’s Place balance is maintained by 6 planes of equal proportion.

All things being equal, we can believe in the stability of the form we create when 3 below are connected to the 3 above. Reed/BEN is the altar where we share the Divine Thoughts of the Creator.

Reed/BEN is the Guiding light of Family and Home. To Ground the Divinity Below, BEN guides us to an altar. The glyph illustrates an altar with two channels of Light Above, and Below, the prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. There is a place for Two Divine Beings to be Bound into the One Trinity of Consciousness.

At an altar together, Human is Sacred for making the Choice of Divine Will. Our Spirit Knows the Divine Will of the Creator. Reed/BEN leads us to the direction of the East, where every journey ends up the Light.

10 Reed / BEN – Journey of Realization: Day 10 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. The Seed/KAN trecena guides a season of creation. KAN represents the Force within the Seed. Our Choices identify our Divine Nature. Divine Choices always offer Signs and Symbols of a Creator of Divinity. As Divine Human Children, we are Creators of Signs and Symbols too.

If you think about it, ALL Creations of Love are Signs and Symbols. I’m sure many master artists have considered painting Love. How would you conceive the “Masterpiece of Love?”

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light of Family and Home. Reed’s Intention is centered on the well-being and guidance for the children. Reed holds very High Expectations of its own Love. Reed’s perspective of thought is the one our Divine Nature holds on behalf of a new generation. If you have been a parent, you may remember.

Before the children came, you already had the Wisdom to make better choices. Just knowing the wise choices, didn’t mean we’d make them for our Self. We were still exploring our Freedom of Choice. A family creates a Divine Reason to make them. Now we have to teach someone else about wise choices. They won’t Believe we really Believe what we say without a demonstration. With the role of leadership in the family, we are inclined to straighten up our own act, to demonstrate what we hope our children will be.

There’s a fine line when it comes to High Expectations for our Children. Reed notes the Shadow side as a leader who rules with a steel pipe instead of a garden hose that could bend and offer Love as a Blessing to Spirit. To share the Wisdom of Love, we have to direct our Children to the Higher Authority of Love. We have to allow them to see that we failed too and that our failures won’t define us, as long as we Know a place to take our own broken dream for our Self. We have to give thought to our unrealistic expectations and the burden we impose if we expect more of them than we could count on in our Self.
