10 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Application of Our Spiritual Nature: Day 10 of 13


10 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

A Manifestation of Spirit…

Tone 10 is the day of Manifestation. We are offered the “Spiritual Gift” of Manifesting what we claim.

We started with a Divine Inspiration about a new way of Being. We dreamed of the Power we might hold if we were Spiritually Gifted, and able to use those Gifts for the purpose of living a Life that we could experience as Happy and Whole.

The work of our Spiritual Growth was holding Faith that we possessed these Gifts and could figure out how to use them. We took it from an Inspiration to an Intention by Choosing to reach for it and to draw upon our own Consciousness to See it.

Serpent/CHICCHAN brings a gift that is worthy of our effort… the “lightning in the blood” that ignites all our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. CHICCHAN offers the “feeling” of Spirit in the body through our blood. The snake is highly attuned to vibration. It’s means of survival depends on it’s Consciousness of the Vibrations it feels through its closeness to Mother Earth. A snake can shed it’s skin to become something greater than it was before.

Residing in the 11th uinal, our Transformation is held under an Intention of Higher Consciousness. We have been prepared to Know our Meaning and Purpose. CHICCHAN is one and the same as Kulkulkan and Quetzalcóatl the Feathered Serpent, the Light that descends down the steps at the pyramid of Chichen Itza. This is a day of Light Coming Down to see what we can claim. In the Tzolk’in harvest cycle of Becoming, we are in Full Bloom, creating the Seeds of Intention that will be born through the Fruit of our Spirit.

3 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Vision Quest: Day 3 of 13

The invitation and introduction is offered on the journal post for 1 Night/AKBAL. Suggestions for daily practice are offered on the Vision Quest Ceremony page.


3 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 is the day of Movement that brings Life to our Intention. Through the action of movement or communication an Intention of Spirit becomes a vibration in the realm of physicality. A Divine Inspiration from Above enters the world Below.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the Day Sign of “lightening in the blood.” Serpent’s way of being is correspondent with the Movement of 3, bringing the physical sensations of Spirit to life within the body.

CHICCHAN is the catalyst of Spirit, said to “light the fuse that ignites the Force of Life itself.” CHICCHAN ignites Spirit in the movement of our Vision Quest.

Our first experience of Spirit calls us to look within our own body to see that we are wholly connected to the Forces of Divine Energy – Body, Mind, and Spirit. “Lightning in the Blood” is a “communication” we can physically feel. Our own pulse is proof of “life force,” like the ley lines that cross Mother Earth. We could see the similarity of our circulatory system, and how the iron in our blood is a conductor of unseen geomagnetic energy. What is True in one realm of existence, translates as Truth in all other realms. As Above, So Below. This force, our Spark of the Creator, is the source of our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. We are touched by the hand of the Creator that would have us Know that we are One, together.

Like the dragon energy of Seed, we’re given the power to “see clearly.” CHICCHAN is the force of kundalini energy that we might feel traveling up the spine. Our “sixth sense” is ignited as something we “feel.” This is a day to pay attention to our gut feelings, and revelations that are accompanied by physical sensations.

2 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Journey of Self Realization: Day 2 of 13


2 Serpent/ CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Serpent/CHICCHAN “lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.”  CHICCHAN is the “lightning in the blood,” the force within the Seed that brings it to life. CHICCHAN is the Spark of the Creator that is seeded within us. Through our relationship with the Creator, we can become Conscious of our own Divine Power.

Tone 2 presents us with the Choice of a Creation “to be, or not to be.” Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality. Duality reflects our ability to see the difference between one thing and another. The Seed/KAN trecena is leading a journey of self-discovery of our own Divine Design. We are guided to see who we are now, and who we dream to be. By choosing an Intention we design the plans for our own creation.

Seed/KAN offers the guidance of Serpent/CHICCHAN to ignite the Spark of the Force of Creation. CHICCHAN brings the gift of an Inner Knowing of our own Power to Create the Dream we Choose.

8 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Quest for Truth: Day 8 of 13


8 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

“Serpent lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.”

8 Serpent/CHICCHAN is a Holy Day observed by the Kiche Maya as “Serpentine Day,” a day  that honors the Strength of Spirit. The Serpent is a catalyst that fires our Supernatural Senses – our “lightning in the blood.” CHICCHAN ignites an electrical surge through our Being.

The previous trecena, CHICCHAN led us through a portal to the dimension of Spirit, where we would recognize the Power of Authority. The purpose of the Flint/ETZNAB trecena is to help us Realize this Truth through our own experience.

We’ve been called to take dynamic action, directing our Intentions of Light with Authority. Our phase of Spiritual Growth was a Quest for our own Truth of this Power. Each new trecena elevates the Ascension of the last.  CHICCHAN returns in the position of Divine Justice for a direct realization of Authority.

On Peak Tone 8, we can expect a great deal of energy. Peak Days are fruitful for anything we hope to accomplish, aided by Divine Intervention. You could mark the Tone 8’s on your calendar as offering Energy and a Revelatory Experience. The same can be said for CHICCHAN, so together, this can be an electrifying experience.  8 is the “number of pure spirit” as defined by the Kiche Maya. Number 8 also represents Abundance and Infinity.

Serpent/CHICCHAN ignites the Life Force of the Spark of the Creator within. Filled with Spirit by CHICCHAN, we can be Transformed by a Truth that Light has Already defeated the Darkness.

7 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Renewal of Spirit: Day 7 of 13


7 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

On the Peak Tone 7 we have completed a new climb of Spiritual Growth. Tone 7 is the Balancing Place at the top of the pyramid that brings the Intention of Reflection. We have a 360 view to look back on our effort. We stand in the Balance for a measurement of Divine Justice. As Above, So Below.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the Day Sign that “lights the fuse” that sets off a regeneration of Spirit. Bringing a gift of “lightning in the blood,” CHICCHAN connects us to a palpable experience of Spirit.

7 is associated with the influence of Divine Will in the manifestation of our Intention. The Intention behind the CAUAC trecena is a regeneration of Spirit. We can reflect on the Divine Justice that would be returned by the Creator on behalf of those who would seek to manifest this Intention. How would a Divine Creator intervene for Spirits seeking a new in-pouring of Divine Light?

PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether
Portal Days thin the veil to the dimension of Spirit and magnify our Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Knowing. On 7 Serpent/CHICCHAN, a Balance is measured for the return of Divine Justice. CHICCHAN is the Catalyst for Spiritual Development. In the Transformation from Tone 7 to Tone 8, the Divine Justice we receive will be a Blessing of Equal Effort by Divine Agency.

13 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Ascension: Day 13


13 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13 we Ascend to a Higher Consciousness made possible by establishing an Altar that would serve as a Divine Channel to the Creator. 13 is the number of theurgy, our ability to draw Divine Intervention for help in Human affairs through the practice of Ritual and Sacred Ceremony. The time and place we command as Sacred is So, because of our Consciousness of the Creator in that moment. Just as we draw our eyes to the Creator, so are we seen as Present at the Altar of God. Reed/BEN holds the Channel Open to the Creator.

God did not Command us to be present, but offered this as a Choice of our own Free Will. Our presence is Sacred by virtue of the fact that We Chose it.  All those who make an appearance at the Altar of God bring the Gift of Fulfilling the Dream of the Creator. We appear because we are in Unity with the Creator, Atoned through the sacrifice of our Human Will.  The Dreams we share are One with the Will of the Creator. In Divine Reciprocity, the fulfillment of OUR Highest Dream is the Creator’s Equal Exchange.

The Creator Dreamed of being Known by Humanity, the first-born child of Divine Consciousness. The work we invest in our Spiritual Growth is a Sacred Ritual in God’s Eyes, because it is accomplished by the Faith we hold through the darkness.  We are the 12 Spirit Dancers who work from the Earthly Realm to become Dancers of Light. Upon our Ascension as One we become the 13th Dancer as a new Constellation of Light. Through the ultimate sacrifice of Love, the Christ Spirit became the 13th Dancer, the leader of the 12. Through an Ascension, a Divine Light appeared to show a Way for the WHOLE of Humanity.

Today, Serpent/CHICCHAN brings us the Gift of “Lightning in the Blood.” The Spiritual Awakening we Dreamed of is the Divine Exchange given by the Creator. A Dream from the realm of our Imagination to be in Communion with the Creator is seated below as a palpable force within the Human Body. CHICCHAN is the Catalyst that lights the Fuse to an Explosion of our Spiritual Life Force. CHICCHAN is the 5th Sign, the number of Change and Empowerment. On 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN, the Human Body dances the Divine Dance that can lead us to our Oneness among the stars.

6 Serpent / CHICCHAN – A Vigil of Light: Day 6 of 13


6 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 brings the Peak Energy to complete a new climb of Spiritual Growth. In a Conscious Effort of Faith we reach our stride through a consistent rhythm and pace of movement. An Unseen Power of momentum supports our final effort in a new wave of Transformation. Tone 6 facilitates Dynamic Developments in all aspects of our life. The Light of a New Sun helps us see where we are going.

The Serpent, or snake, is one of the oldest and widespread symbols of fertility and the Creative Life Force held within Every Thing. The Snake’s Power of Rebirth, Transformation, and Renewal of Life are seen in its ability to shed its old skin. 5 Seed/KAN helped release us from our karmic debt, and now Serpent/CHICCHAN prepares us for Dynamic Growth by offering a new freedom of movement.

The Snake makes its Way in the World by relying on its Sense of Vibration. Snake’s ability to detect the vibrations of movement connected to the Earth serves as the catalyst for its own swift and decisive action.

CHICCHAN draws our awareness to the Vibration of our own Life Force. Known as the Day Sign that brings “lightning in the blood,” CHICCHAN serves as a catalyst to ignite our “Sixth Sense” of Inner Knowing.
