8 Monkey / CHUEN – Journey of Realization: Day 8 of 13

Happy Maya New Year, WAXAJQIB B’AATZ (8 B’atz)


8 Monkey/CHUEN (2015) dmalmos

Greetings Kin,

8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’aatz) is celebrated as the New Year in the Quiche/K’iche Maya tradition. On 8 Monkey/CHUEN we receive the Divine Justice that is due to those who count the days as Sacred. This New Year is the Homecoming from a journey of Creation.

In our own climbs to this Time and Place, we re-imagined what a New Seed of our Self could be. Then, we imagined the kind of world we would intend to leave to a new generation. The Monkey/CHUEN trecena inspired the Dream of our Creation. The Seed/KAN trecena offered us the first Experience of it. The Monkey intended us to Know that we Create our own Reality.

We create from the Heart. When our Heart feels the Creator’s Unconditional Love, Human is capable of manifesting its Highest Aspirations. On this New Year, we Identify our Self as a Creator. We Believe in the Truth that will change our future.

On WAXAJQIB B’AATZ the Mayan priest observes the Sacred Fire Ceremony. Daykeepers who completed their instruction and made the journey to all the altars are called forward for an Initiation of Spirit. The Elders traditionally offer the Daykeeper the bag of 260 Sacred Red Beans. The Mayan priest leads the Count of Days. The Quiche Maya begin with 1 Monkey/CHUEN. First the Blessing is given to the Direction, and to the Element of Chuen – Water than holds the Ether of Spirit. The count proceeds, 1 Monkey/CHUEN, 2 Monkey/CHUEN, 3 Monkey/CHUEN… completing the Blessings for each of the 20 Day Signs, and the Count of their Kin.

In the Count of Days, every Human’s Destiny is spoken by Name. And, in the Count we each hear our Own Name Called for the Blessing. On 8 Monkey/CHUEN we receive the Divine Justice that is due to the Creators of Love. Honoring the 260-days of the Tzolk’in, Human’s Intentions of Creation and all our ways of being, we WERE Honoring one another.

7 Dog / OC – Journey of Realization: Day 7 of 13


7 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

On Peak Tone 7 we reach the pinnacle of our climb. At the top of the pyramid we arrive at the Highest Altar. From the place Up Above, we can see the Light all around. Tone 7 intends the Divine Balance between the Above and the Below. By the Great Law of Creation, what we have manifested in one realm of Consciousness will be Balanced Equally in all others.

We stand in the Balance to be measured for an application of Divine Justice, the Creator’s Highest Intention of Harmony and Equity for the Whole. Today we see all that is, and all that is not.

Dog/OC is the Symbol of Unconditional Love. The Creator’s Love was waiting for us at the altar. As we are measured in comparison to such Divine Love, we can clearly see that Human falls short in EVERY Intention of Love. We never follow through exactly as we planned. Just when we thought it would be easy, a worldly attachment drew our thoughts away from Love.

The Dog/Wolf is a pack animal, that offers its gifts of Love to the Whole. It leaves its scent on a trail that others can follow back to the beginning. The Dog’s priority is the next opportunity for Love. No matter what it finds, the Dog leaves the scent of Love to go back and find it.

Dog demonstrates Unconditional Love as Human’s best friend. The Creator’s Love will be with us to the End. Like the Creator, a Dog is Intuitive in Love. A Dog can tell if it needs to sit by your side, or beg you to go out in Mother Nature for a walk. Dog defines its journey as the Adventure of a Lifetime. Dog Loves ALL the Feelings of it.

6 Offering / MULUC – Journey of Realization: Day 6 of 13


6 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 6 offers the Intention of Flow, through a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. Given the Power of Momentum, we’re prepared to complete a new climb of Spiritual Growth. On Tone 5, we were Empowered by seeing how all our Spiritual Gifts could be applied to a Divine Creation of Love. Tone 6 engages all the Power of Love we’ve created for our last Leap of Faith.

Offering/MULUC offers a way through an Atonement with the Creator. MULUC presents a Divine Reason for Every Creation of Love. In the Sacred Ceremony of an Offering, we are Humbled before the Consciousness of God.

The glyph illustrates a single drop of water raised up to be Seen by the Creator. Returned the Love we’ve Seen will send Ripples through the Whole.

CHICCHAN lit the fuse to the Power in our Heart. Today, through the Element of Fire, our Hearts will be forged  by the Passion of very Divine Reason. MULUC holds the Symbols of the Moon, our Emotions, and Water Everywhere, from the Cosmos to our own Tears. Water holds the Ether of Spirit. The essence of our identity is suspended in the Water of us. Our Blood is “bestirred to speak” when the Ether of Spirit moves within it. This is a day to Honor Emotions that are the Quickening of Spirit.

Through an Atonement we can witness Unconditional Love through the Creator’s own eyes. We can see what the Creator sees in us, when we come with an Offering that Demonstrates we See and Acknowledge a Relationship and the Provision that waits for every Human limitation.

5 Star / LAMAT – Journey of Realization: Day 5 of 13


5 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

4 Deer/MANIK established Stability for our Intention by raising our Consciousness to the Provision of our Spiritual Tools. Our Mission is a journey. We were given the Tools to arrive at the destination. MANIK shared the Truth that a Tool is created for every Human limitation.

Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. Tone 5 represents the center of the cube, the central organizing point for the management and application of resources of Spirit.

Our Power to Create is Passionate Love. Everything that is created began with a Reason. Our Power for Creation is the sum of all the Reasons we dreamed of the Possibility. We can create for a lot of reasons. Love is the Most Powerful Reason… an Intention of Authority.

Star/LAMAT is the Identity of Human’s Divine Meaning and Purpose. We were created to be a Personification of the Creator’s Light. The Sun is our brightest Star, and we are made of Stars. We are Empowered by a Divine Identity and a very Divine Reason for Being.

Star/LAMAT is a symbol of Venus that shines as both the Morning and Evening Star, in cycles that correspond with Human’s cycle of 260-days of creation. Human was created to be the Light on Mother Earth. In our cycle of Light, we walk close together with the Creator. In the Creative Void, we shine our own Light of Creation in the Darkness of our Dreams. We move back and forth through Darkness and Light, yet always held in our journey with the Sun.

The Star identifies Human as the Scion of the Creator, the firstborn. We inherited our Spark of the Creator’s Consciousness, the all-in-one. Deer/MANIK demonstrated how to be connected to our own Source of Primal Love. Today we can see we Inherited the Intentions of Love. Love is what we were intended to Grow Up To Be. Love would always be the Easiest thing To Be. When we realize this Power of Love, we Know how everything we set out to do for the Divine Intention of Love is based on a Primal Instinct that is capable to Rise to its Own Occasion.

Memorial Service for Human Love: May 18, 2019

Greetings Kin,

Lehua flower

The Seed/KAN trecena a Spiritual Climb to a Higher Consciousness of our Divine Identity. At the New Moon, the pain of Human Love was our Offering, with the prayer that it be transformed by Divine Love. I saw our Human love burned in the Fire that changes things, and stabilized the contents that would be held for a Divine Time and Place.

I’ve been dreaming of the Full Moon, May 18, 2019, and how it might look to see Human love change drawn into the Bigger Love of the Whole in the waters of Puget Sound. I imagined it would be right and good to bring some flowers as a memorial as well as a Gift to Mother Earth.

I was choosing colors and thought of our Sister Elena on the Big Island in Hawaii and has witnessed the Fire of Mother Earth, in the place where the Goddess of Fire is known. The Big Island’s color is red, and the flower is the Lehua flower. I asked Elena if she there were any of these flowers nearby and if she was near moving water. These flowers are around her and she is present at the ocean shore every day. Elena has agreed to prepare for the Offering on the Full Moon, May 18, 2019. (As it turns out, it’s known as the “Flower Moon.”)


I would like to extend the invitation to anyone who would like to share in Sacred Ceremony as a Memorial for Human Love. We could Honor all the ways our Human love has served us so well, even when its broken. We could See and Acknowledge all the wounds it’s born. The Human love we’re willing to let go for something more Divine will always be Sacred. As a manifestation of the Creator, it will always hold its Divine Meaning and Purpose.

4 Deer / MANIK – Journey of Realization: Day 4 of 13


4 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 holds an Intention of Stability. The energy of 4 relates to the cube, the most stable of forms. The cube defines dimension by its boundaries and parameters. Tone 4 intends to establish an orientation and the directions of thought that will serve as a foundation for our journey of creation.

Deer/MANIK holds the Meaning and Purpose of the Mayan priest who carries on a Mission of Love on behalf of the Whole. MANIK dedicates itself to a Service of Remembering. Deer/MANIK holds all the Spiritual Tools and carries out a living demonstration of using them. The Mayan priest accepts the responsibility to be watchful of the Time and to carry out the Sacred Ceremonies as they are marked on the calendar.

The Deer/MANIK holds the Gift of Harmonic Resonance. A Divine Movement naturally draws others to follow. MANIK offers a Living Symbol and Demonstration of Love that both Spirit and Human eyes will see. Human is naturally drawn by Love when their Spirit sees the Divine Symbols. Human is more likely to follow what others do, than what they say.

Deer/MANIK holds the Divine Truth that we don’t have to push Love for it to be born into the world. Everyone is already watching and waiting for the Signs of a Possibility. Divine Love holds its own Power of Attraction. Human knows Divine Love when they see it for themselves. Deer/MANIK offers a demonstration of they Way that Symbolizes Divine Love.

Signs, Symbols, and the Alchemy of Divine Love

Greetings Kin,

It doesn’t look very pretty, but Human Love still holds Great Value.

The trecena of Monkey/CHUEN taught us to Create through our own Signs and Symbols of Love… just for fun, and the curiosity of seeing what happens. An Ascension of 13 Night/AKBAL was the revelation that when we follow the Ethereal journey to Creation, our Dreams come True. AKBAL shone the Light of ALL Possibilities.

This journey of alchemy was shared by the Andean shamanic Elder. The shamanic Elder on the Native American path, offered similar, but different ways. They shared the wisdom that we could use anything of matter to create a Divine Movement of Vibration in the world. When I ask the Elder how I could go about restoring a relationship, I was shown how to use rocks like paper dolls and to play like children play creating the Dream we would manifest as our new Reality. Journeys create Divine Symbols Below that we can grasp to remember.

Today on 3 CIMI I was witness to a new Symbol of the Divine Love that the Creator is manifesting in us. It was Divine to Remember the Ashes of Human Love burned away on the New Moon of 2 CHICCHAN. I was eager to see them in solid form in my freezer. It was a Divine Sight.
