8 Jaguar / IX – A Divine Purpose: Day 8 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 begins the phase of our Divine Transformation. The Sacred Exchange for a Movement of Love is a Transformation of Heart and Mind that’s carried out by a Divine Agency. Holding an Intention to see through the eyes of Love, changes our Consciousness of Love.

8 is the Number of “Pure Spirit.” 8 is a symbol of Infinity and Abundance. Our lives are Abundantly Blessed as we are raised to the Consciousness of Love that permeates the Whole Creation.

Our Highest Love is an experience Known only by our “Pure Spirit.” It can’t be fully understood by a mind of Reason. Love is contrary to everything our Human Ego tells us to do. Love is the Inner Strength of our Spirit. As an Intention of Spirit, Love is the Creation that makes Miracles possible.

Jaguar/Ix is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, the Heart of Compassionate Love. IX represents the “heart of the planet” as the female reproductive tract. We are born through the Heart of Love. Our Mother, Earth holds Life, evidenced by Movement. Every Human was born to a Divine Mother of Love. Each one of our lives is blessed equally by Mother Earth, from whom we are nourished, given the breath of life, and the beauty that would call our Hearts to Love. Mother Earth shares all the Resources of Creation.

7 Reed / BEN – A Divine Purpose: Day 7 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

On the Peak Tone 7 we’ve completed a climb to the top of the pyramid, and a new phase of Spiritual Growth. Tone 7 holds an Intention of Reflection. At the Highest Altar we have a 360 degree view of all that is, and all that is not. Tone 7 is the Balancing Place that reflects the Great Law of Creation, “As Above, So Below.”

This Spiritual Principle, preserved by the most ancient Mystery Schools, reflects the Truth of Balance in the Universe in every realm of being. What is created in one realm of Consciousness, is Balanced in all others. What we create in our Imagination is Reflected in our world. Everything created began in the realm of our Imagination. Everything we see around us is a manifestation of the Ether of our Dreams. Mother Earth and all of Humanity are manifestations of the Creator’s Dreams.

Reed/BEN illustrates an Altar. Above are the channels of Light that extend from the Above to the Below. Beneath the altar are the thatched prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. The Reed represents our Spiritual Channel of communication with the Creator. Reed is the Guiding Light for Home and Family. BEN calls us to Bless and Repair the Home of a Divine Family.

6 Road / EB – A Divine Purpose: Day 6 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Road / EB

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 6 we enter the Peak Energy of the trecena. On Tone 6 we engage Momentum through a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. Our steps of Intention are becoming second nature.

Our Intention as the Deer is to stand in the Truth of Love by being Vigilant of our thoughts. We’re learning to dwell on Beauty and Love, pushing away negative thoughts. Dynamic developments are possible when this movement becomes a habit. It will change the way we express who we are.

Road/EB is the Day Sign of Human, and the Road to Human’s Destiny. EB also represents the Tzolk’in. The K’iche Maya call the Tzolk’in (Cholq’ij) the Saq’ Be, the Sacred/White Road.

Human’s quest is to “know thyself” and experience life through a Divine Perspective. We will always find what we’re looking for. Knowing the Creator, we’ll learn to “Know Thyself.”

EB resides in the South, the direction of our Relationships with one another and the Natural World. When we choose the Sacred Road, we are always drawn into Right Relationship. Road/EB holds the Element of Earth, the womb our body returns to and becomes part of a new generation.

5 Monkey / CHUEN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. Representing the Center of the cube, Tone 5 facilitates dynamic growth as resources are drawn together. We are empowered by our Spiritual Tools, as we discern their service in application.

Monkey/CHUEN offers the perspective of a Creator. CHUEN is the Master of all Art and the Weaver of Time. The glyph illustrates “time rolled up” on the Monkey’s head. Monkey uses time to create the tapestry of our Life to create a thing of Beauty.

Human is a Creator of the Art of Living. Following the ways of the Monkey, our Lives can be turned into a Living Masterpiece. Our lives were all intended to be a Masterpiece of Beauty, manifested by the Unconditional Love of the Creator. Our lives will be a thing of beauty following Beauty and Love like the Monkey.

4 Dog / OC – A Divine Purpose: Day 4 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 offers Stability for a new Climb of Spiritual Growth. Tone 4 represents the cube, the most stable of forms. On Tone 4 we’re given a sense of orientation, dimension, and the “rules of the game.”

Dog/OC is nuhaul of Unconditional Love. OC is positioned in the Center of the Tzolk’in, side-by-side with Monkey/CHUEN. Together, they represent the characteristics that are central to a Divine Creator. Dog is the Lover and Monkey is the Creator.

Dog resides in the North, the place of Wisdom. Representing the Wisdom of the Ascended Ones, and the Wisdom of Human Experience, the North is the direction of the inner workings of the mind. The North influences our Discernment, holding the Divine Power to Change our Mind. Dog/OC holds the Power to Change our Perception of Reality.

Discernment is our ability to reason and understand. Discernment is a measure of wisdom, acumen, intelligence, intuition, and judgement. Discernment is always based on “Truth that we Believe.” Changing what we Believe is the purpose of every climb. We are growing toward the Divine Truth.

GLOBAL BURNER DAY:  Burner days mark a release of built-up residual energy that can influence our relationships. The Fire Ceremony is carried out by the Mayan priest for the purpose of restoring Harmony and Balance in the Community. 4 Dog/OC re-establishes the solid ground of Love as our Foundation. 4 Dog/OC is marked on the calendar for the Mayan priest to hold a Sacred Ceremony to Honor the Fire of Spirit, the Divine Love that Intends to change our Hearts and Minds.

3 Offering / MULUC – A Divine Purpose: Day 3 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

3 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

The Deer/MANIK trecena is teaching us how to fulfill a Mission in Service to the Whole, by grasping the thread of Ether that connects a circuit to a Divine Source of Power. On Tone 2, we learned there are an unlimited number of ways we could carry it out, and that Human was given the Sacred Right to Choose.

Tone 3 is the first day of Movement. By taking action of Intention toward a Dream we Love, we bring Life to a new Vibration. Intention is the way of Movement in Spirit. Intention is the focus for Consciousness that holds the Power of Creation that Multiplies itself to Abundance.

Offering/MULUC guides the first Movement of the Deer. Through an Offering, we are Atoned with the Creator. We grasp the thread.

MULUC is a Sign of Water everywhere, the Moon, and our Emotions. Water holds the Ether of Spirit. MULUC represents the Element of Fire. the element that is capable to transmute matter from one thing to another. MULUC is the Holy Water used for Blessings, Purification, and Baptism of Spirit. As One we are always Blessed in our Purest State, standing in the Identity of our Divine Nature.

MULUC guides us to “pay back and pay forward” what has been given to us. All the Spiritual Tools and Gifts we are given, were created for the same Meaning and Purpose, the Consciousness to have a relationship with the Creator. The Relationship itself is our Shining Star, the one we wish on with all our Hopes for Tomorrow.

2 Star / LAMAT – A Divine Purpose: Day 2 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 introduces the Consciousness of Duality. We identify our Self, apart from The Creation. We were inspired to create something. Tone 2 is a Day of Personal Discernment of an Intention that will guide our Spirit.  On Tone 2, we imagine what it could be.

This Time for figuring things out is important. It’s a Choice we make of “to be or not to be.” We get to choose what will manifest in our lives. When we are Conscious our natural Choice is to add something we Love.

It’s a day to be Conscious that we’re choosing, through the thoughts we are imagining. If we want to create more Love, we need to focus on something we Love.

On Tone 2 we consider our own Expression born of an Inspiration to Create. We don’t always choose for Love. Sometimes we choose what the world expects, or create to prove a point, or we hurry to invest our effort before someone else thinks of it. On Tone 2 it’s important to discern the meaning and purpose behind the creation. Love is the Reason that will manifest our Creation.

Star/LAMAT is the Cauldron of Creation, like the Star Nurseries of the Universe. LAMAT’s totem, the Rabbit is Overflowing with Love, Multiplying to Abundance. LAMAT is a day of “pure luck.” We can find something we Love close at hand that we can focus on, and it will be Multiplied to Abundance. LAMAT is associated with Instant Manifestation.

What we hold in our thoughts is manifested in Spirit. In the Pure Process of Creation, if we See it and Love it, it’s ours… just waiting to materialize in the realm of physicality. We have to uphold the pillars of our Dream, to uphold the Creation that exists in Spirit. We have to weave it together in our imagination, and Believe that what we create in Spirit will be Balanced Below. We uphold the pillars of Creation through the Vigilance of our Conscious thoughts. We have to focus on what we Love, not what we Don’t Love.
