4 Wisdom / CIB – Building an Altar of Light: Day 4 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 holds the Intention of Stability. Like the cube, the most stable of forms, 4 creates dimension, boundaries, and parameters. Tone 4 offers an orientation and “rules of the game.” Tone 4 establishes our solid ground for Spiritual Discernment.

Wisdom/CIB is the Day Sign of the Old Ones, the Wise ones who preserved a Divine Path to follow. They made the same climb, reaching for their Highest Aspirations. Our collective experiences are recorded eternally in the One Divine Mind. Wisdom/CIB connects us to this Wisdom, and a Personal Relationship with our Guidance Up Above, All Around, and Down Below.

This is a day to Honor the Ancestors and heed their advice. Everything they teach us will be for our own Good along the journey to our Dream. This is a day to Pray for Wise Counsel and those who have shared their Wise Discernment with us.

Eagle/MEN carried us far into the darkness of our Future. Darkness is the place where the Owl can see the best. Owl can turn our head around to find Wisdom within our Self. Owl helps us to Discern what Human has never seen, to look for. We have to establish our own Truth and Way. CIB’s way Honors all the Wisdom of Humanity. When the student is ready to Receive, the Teacher Appears.

The glyph illustrates the Mind in its state of Highest Consciousness. Emanating from the head are the rays of Illumination and Forgiveness. The Ancestors will show us how one depends on the other. They offer the “Keys to the Kingdom” of Spirit.

3 Eagle / MEN – Building an Altar of Light: Day 3 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN

3 Eagle / MEN

Greetings Kin,

Sorry for the late post yesterday. I forgot to push the right button. I was thinking about the Sparks following in Romania, celebrating Ground Bear Day. Then it was close to sunset in Romania by the time it was posted. I hope I got Ground Bear Day right!

Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. Movement and Sound create Vibration. When we disseminate the thoughts of our Intention, when we Speak the Dream or take our first step toward it, we bring Life to the Vibration of our Dream. A Vibration of Love establishes itself in the world Below. When we see something clear enough to move toward it, it manifests in Spirit. Our Spirit has already seen the destination.

Eagle/MEN is the nahaul that flies in closest proximity to the Creator. From Above, Eagle has a Divine View of everything. It doesn’t see the obstacles that are visible on the path below. It sees the Direct Path to a Dream.

The Eagle Knows that if it can see the Place it will arrive at the perfect Time. The Jaguar lay down the footprints for a Flight into the realm of Spirit. The Eagle navigates by Intuition. An Eagle can see its prey over a mile away (1.99 miles). It doesn’t calculate the distance or wind speed. It doesn’t even think about the Way. It gets there by focusing on what it sees, and taking off – believing it will arrive at this perfect Time and Place.

Eagle/MEN serves the Meaning and Purpose of an Intermediary. Sharing it’s Wings and Gift of Vision, the Eagle lifts us up to see something for our Self. We can never believe anything until we see it for our Self. We can only hold the Power of Believing when we Know that WE have seen it. Once WE see it, it will become OUR TRUTH.

2 Jaguar / IX – Building an Altar of Light: Day 2 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 represents Duality. Human’s way of seeing things is through a comparison of one thing and another. Duality also describes the two sides of Human Consciousness. The Reed/BEN trecena gathers us into Divine Relationship as One.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, and a symbol of the Divine Feminine who holds the Power of Discernment. IX receives the Inspiration of the Divine Masculine to Discern the Meaning and Purpose. Jaguar/IX sees beyond the Divine Idea, to the Reason Why.

Today we are presented with a Choice of Creation. The most important Discernment is the Reason. As the Light of Family and Home, Reed/BEN encourages a Reason for the Whole. The Power to Manifest any Dream is Love. Love will be needed to carry it out. Love is the Light that will shine in our Darkness. And, Love will set the Tone from the Beginning that will carry through to the End. God is Love, and the Sun illustrates the Light of Love that always carries on. Love holds the passion to keep going.

Jaguar/IX leads a Journey of Spirit. It’s destination is the Altar, the Sacred Site it guards in stealth. Jaguar is the shape-shifter that is capable to travel from one dimension to another. Jaguar is Conscious of Reed’s channel of Light as a portal through which we cross into the realm of Spirit. The Jaguar leads us through it to Know the Meaning and Purpose of the Altar we build within.

1 Reed / BEN – Building an Altar of Light: Day 1 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN

1 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13-Days…

Reed/BEN shines the Light of Communion with the Creator. The Reed is a Channel of Divine Communion.

Reed/BEN is illustrated as an Altar. Above are the channels of the Creator’s Light shining down on the Altar. Below are the thatched prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility.

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home, holding a special provision for the children. BEN is a Day Sign of “Light” that will show us the way to Be a Shining Light to those in our closest realm of influence. Through a Vision of Light, Reed will inspire us to follow the Light of Divine Discernment that is made possible by Humility.

Reed offers guidance for raising children to follow the path we are creating toward a Destination of Love. Reed is known for holding very High Expectations. We are meant to hold High Aspirations, but cautioned against expecting Our Way. BEN warns us to lead with a “garden hose” and not a “steel pipe.” The one that bends, will pour out the Blessings of Spirit. Reed calls us to Bend in Humility to all the Divine Ways and Means to a Destiny of Love. Reed bends to Kneel in Humility at every altar of Love.

An altar is a place of Oneness. As a place of an Offering, we are always Atoned with the Creator when we kneel at this altar.  Reed/BEN will inspire us to create an altar within our Heart where we Bend in Humility to the Light of the Whole. BEN is observed as a day to Bless and Repair the Home. We will create a Happy Home when a place of Divine Communion is placed in the Center.

3rd & 4th Uinals: In the harvest cycle of the Tzolk’in round, the 3rd and 4th Uinals represent the process of the Seed that becomes a sprout. Like Tones 3 and 4, the 3rd and 4th Uinals are cycles of Movement and Stability. As we reach up to draw the Light of Divinity, so will our roots reach down to be anchored by Unconditional Love.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
The Reed/BEN trecena includes 2 Portal Days that thin the veil to other dimensions and empower our psychic gifts of intuition and telepathy. A Portal on 6 Flint/ETZNAB will magnify an important Truth that has been hidden or covered up. This Truth will generate Momentum. On 12 Seed/KAN a Portal will magnify Love through the Truth of our Identity.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Flint/ETZNAB – establishes Momentum created by Discerning the Divinity of our own Truth.
  • 7  Storm/CAUAC – will offer a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit through the Truth of our Divine Connection to Unconditional Love.
  • 8 Sun/AHAU – through a Revelation or Epiphany, the Sun will illuminate the Gift of Divine Justice in a Sacred Exchange.
  • 9 Crocodile/IMIX – will complete our Transformation with the Truth that the Dreams we Love the most is our own source of Genius, and the Love holds the Patience to Wait for a Manifestation that is Willed by the Creator.

13 Road / EB – Ascension: Day 13

THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU

13 Road / EB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 is the Day of Ascension. Our circles are Spirals of evolution. We Ascend to a Higher Vibration of Consciousness through the exercise of raising our thoughts to Divinity. Sun/AHAU offered the experience as the Flower, always reaching and turning to the Light that crosses the sky. Our Ascension offers the Light to try again, or to create something new.

On Tone 13 we Ascend to a Higher Consciousness of our own Spirit and the Consciousness of the One. An experience with a Beginning and an End offered an Illumination of Spiritual Truth. Sun/AHAU promised a Revelation of Identity.

13 Road/EB was the Ascension planned from the Beginning. Road/EB is the Day Sign of Human and the Divine Destiny of Remembering Who We Are. Road/EB is also the representation of a Human calendar that leads a journey of Transformation to the Consciousness of our Unity as One.

Road/EB is the Divine Path given as a Human calendar. The Maya call  it the “White Road,” the Calendar of Life (Cholq’ij). The calendar reflects a Time for every Human purpose and the order of Human thoughts that leads to the Divine Consciousness of Remembering.  We all hold the One Divine Truth. Ascension offers the elevating Consciousness to Know it from a Higher Perspective. The way we See our Truth is a reflection of where we are on the Road, though we are all on the same Road to Divine Consciousness.

Today we’re offered the Illumination to see the Road we’re on and to Know the only End that could be our Divine Destiny. Road/EB marks a Milestone of Human Consciousness. The glyph illustrates the Road on Human’s head with the milestones on either side. It reflects the Truth that our Destiny is manifested by a Human Choice to follow the Direction of the Heart, and leave the Ending to the Divine Will of the Creator.

11 Dog / OC – A Revelation of Light: Day 11 of 13

THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

The Sun/AHAU trecena leads a journey of creation, accompanied by the Supreme Creator. Each Day is the Sacred Event we were given in the Light of the Creator’s Love. Each trecena represents the 12 hours of Light upon which we Ascend every day.

Every day, we are presented with a new journey. Every day a whole new canvas of life is given for the Creation of Love. We are changed by every experience we create. Each day we can apply the Creator’s Intention to Love from the Beginning. If human could love from the beginning to the end of a single day, we’d shine a Light of Divinity. We would fulfill our whole Divine Meaning and Purpose in one day, if we could do it.

Tone 11 is the 11th Hour. The day is nearly done. We’ve watched the Sun travel across the sky. In the hour the Sun makes its way to the Western horizon, we see the Whole. On Tone 10 we claimed the Truth of Manifestation. On Tone 11 we see the full distance we’ve covered.

Tone 11 is a Day of Resolution. All the pieces come together that will put together the Divine Intentions for a New Day and a New Way of Living. Tone 11 presents us with the Here and Now to comprehend a new horizon, a new starting place.

Offering/MULUC gathered all our Love together to frame it as an Offering. All the human love we share was given a Divine Direction and a Source that Defines the Place. Our human love is transformed into Divine Love, when it’s given to the Creator. Given back to the Source, our Love will be Given as an Act of Divinity. We can shine our Light through the Sun, as the Center of Everything, and the One Divine Light that always exchanges Life, Love, and Happiness.

Dog/OC is the symbol of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. On Tone 11, the shaman climbs to the Highest Altar to make an Offering and Receives the Atonement for a Divine Discernment. Dog/OC leads us to a Higher Discernment of Love. Everything we need to know about Love, we can learn from the Dog.

GREEN KIN: ELEMENT OF ETHER
11 Dog/OC (KIN 50)
is a Portal Day that magnifies our experience through a thinning of the veil. A channel is open to the realm of Spirit. We can experience the closeness of the Creator through a magnification of Unconditional Love.

The Master Number 11 is the sign of a Spiritual Awakening. Angel Number 11 encourages you to assist and inspire the human race via your natural abilities, relying upon your inner-wisdom and intuition to guide you. [Sacred Scribes]

10 Offering / MULUC – A Revelation of Light: Day 10 of 13

10 Offering / MULUC

THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 is the Day of Manifestation. Tone 10 offers a Blessing and a Responsibility. We manifest what we claim is True. Believing is the Miracle of Manifestation.

Sun/AHAU, the Lord of the Tzolk’in and our Shining Light of Truth, has been with us on the journey to the Birthright of our Divinity. AHAU holds the Power to Illuminate what is hidden in the shadows, and hidden in plain sight.

Offering/MULUC is a Day Sign of Atonement. We are made One with the Consciousness of a Divine Creator through an Offering. Rituals and Sacred Offerings were given to Human as the Power to call on the Creator’s Power. An Offering returns a Sacred Exchange. An Offering is a demonstration of Seeing and Acknowledging Divinity. We recognize the Divinity of Love that is given without any conditions, a Love beyond human’s power, a Love that can change our Body, Mind, and Spirit. God’s Love raises Human’s Love to Divinity.

The glyph illustrates a single drop of Water raised up above the Whole. Through an Offering we are raised up to be seen by the Creator. Through an Offering, we see each other through the eyes Divinity. Unconditional Love is a Gift of being Seen as a Divine Spirit. A Mission of Love could be carried out by just looking into the eyes of another Human Being to see the Light of their Spirit. Like the one drop raised up, when we are Seen, the Love that Overflows will ripple through the Whole.
