4 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 brings the intention of Stability. Representing the cube, the most stable of all forms, and the 4 directions. 4 establishes an orientation, direction and parameters of movement, like the rules of a game.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the catalyst, the Spark that Lights the Fuse to Life Force itself. This is a day of “Lightning in the Blood.” Serpent seats the Spark within the Seed of our New Spiritual DNA.

“Lightning in the Blood” relates to our sixth senses, our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. CHICCHAN holds the Force of Life, Animation, and Movement and Awakens the Spiritual Force within. The Ether of Spirit resides in the Element of Water and our Blood. CHICCHAN’s gift of Knowing creates sensations in the body as a means of Discernment.

The Spiritual Gifts were made an Equal Gift to every Human Being. They can be hard to recognize as an integral part of our Every Day Experience. We mistake the Voice of Spirit as our own Divine thoughts. We feel the Lightning in our Blood – the electrical charges that solicit a physical response. If beauty and love have moved you to tears, if you’ve ever had a gut feeling that turned out to be true, and if you’ve ever blushed, had goosebumps, or felt tingling of hair standing on end, you’ve already experienced the Force of CHICCHAN (Chi ‘Khan). The only thing that separates us from the Power of CHICCHAN, is the unconsciousness that never Sees or Acknowledges the Gift in the Truth of what it is. Once we realize we Know it, our own Imagination will carry it to a Higher Ascension of Consciousness.

Everything wants to be Seen and Acknowledged. CHICCHAN intends to be Seen and Acknowledged, so it Lights the Fuse of its Power to Create an Experience than Human Can Know within every fiber of Being. The Creator Knows what Human needs to seat the Wisdom of our Experience, and exactly when we need to Experience our Gifts. CHICCHAN is the Time that is given to this Sacred Purpose.

GLOBAL BURNER DAY:
4 Serpent/CHICCHAN is one of 4 Global Burner Days, one for each Season of the Tzolk’in. (Each Kin also has their own 4 Personal Burner Days:  Your Mayan Birthday/Destiny Kin, and every 65 days thereafter, landing on the Tone number of your own Destiny Kin.) Global Burners are observed as a Day for Sacred Fire Ceremony that is carried out by the Mayan Priest on behalf of the Whole. The purpose is to burn off an excess of residual energies – a discharge of excess excitation of our matter. The days leading up to the Global Burner our Senses can feel overloaded. The Sacred Gathering for Community Fire Ceremony stabilizes and releases excess energy to bring us back into our Wholeness in Right Relationship.

10 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Inheritance of Wisdom: Day 10 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S BLOG

10 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

A Manifestation of Spirit…

Tone 10 is the day of Manifestation. Serpent/CHICCHAN is the “spark that lights the fuse,” a catalyst of Divine Consciousness. 10 Serpent/CHICCHAN offers us a Manifestation of Spirit.

In the harvest cycle that will produce the new Fruit of our Spirit, the Wisdom/CIB trecena presents an Intention of an Application of Wisdom. CIB is teaching us to think about our experiences and see the Truth they will reveal about our Power of Creation. The Dream we were drawn to play out in the realm of physicality is Living our Life, Believing in our own Power to Create an imagining what we would Love.

We started in a Leap of Faith. Every time we faced our own doubt, the Elders reminded us to just keep turning away from the darkness. As our eyes become accustomed to the dark, we would see the Light of our Dream shining in the future. We are manifesting a Dream by focusing our thoughts on the Dream and all the ways we Love it.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the “Dragon Energy” that ignites our Consciousness of Consciousness.  As the symbol of Enlightenment and Illumination, CHICCHAN lights the fuse that empowers ALL our Spiritual Gifts of “Knowing.” CHICCHAN is the Power behind the Gift of Clairvoyance, Telepathy, Empathy, Intuition, and Premonition. These were the Gifts that were Given by the Creator to realize our Most Important Truth. They are invisible tools that work in the darkness. They allow us to Know without Seeing. Like the Seed knows its way to the Light, we were designed to Know through all our Physical Senses the integrity of our Truth.

9 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 9 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience for the purpose of seeing the bigger picture. Our Transformation is the process of turning a new understanding into a personal Truth. When we Believe in our own Truth we have a foundation for discernment.  Our first Truth is “right” and “wrong.” As our Consciousness evolves, we can build a new foundation on Divine Truth. “Right” or “wrong” doesn’t offer enough information when we are presented with Unlimited Choices. The Knowing of Higher Consciousness allows us to rely on what our Heart tells us to do.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the catalyst of Spirit, the Spark that Lights the Fuse. CHICCHAN is “dragon energy.” Like the ley lines of Mother Earth, so do we have a network of energy in the body. CHICCHAN is the very Force of Life and the Energy that Ignites all our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing.

CHICCHAN is related to the Kundalini energy that travels up the spine to the top of the head. It’s a Force that accompanies a Revelation of Spirit. It generates goosebumps and raises hair with a rush of blood to the head. This is a day to pay attention to your own Knowing, you gut feelings, and your intuition. 9 Serpent/CHICCHAN intends to complete a Transformation to a Higher Consciousness of our Spirit.

PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether  – Portal days help us see beyond the veil to other dimensions and magnify our experiences of Spirit. Portals have the power to Awaken our Spiritual Gifts. All our supernatural gifts, like Intuition, Telepathy, and Clairvoyance, are common for their characteristic of Knowing. A Portal will magnify the Truth of CHICCHAN, an influential energy of Spirit within.  A Portal will help us look deeper to complete a Higher Consciousness of this Truth.

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

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

The Intention of Tone 5 is Empowerment. Tone 5 represents the center of the cube, a central organizing force that draws all resources together for application. Tone 5 intends to gather what is needed to complete our new climb of Spiritual Growth.

Star/LAMAT is a symbol of Human as a Personification of Light. Human is made of the elements of the Stars. LAMAT is a symbol of Venus. The Morning Star cycle of 260 days and Evening Star cycle of another 260 days, correspond with the gestation cycle of Corn, and Human, inspiring the 13 numbers, 20 Day sign Sacred Calendar (13 x 20 = 260).

The 13 numbers reflect the 13 Intentions of Creation. The 20 Day Signs reflect 20 different perspectives, as Ways of Being. Over the course of the Tzolk’in round we experience 20 different ways to approach every Intention of Creation. The Tzolk’in round represents an entire Harvest cycle of Human’s Transformation of Consciousness. The Tzolk’in offers us a Beginning and an Ending that allows us to see our own Transformation through the Human eyes of Duality – we see the Difference in our Self at the End as we can Remember a Beginning.

Aside from the Sun, Venus is the brightest heavenly body that generates its own Light. Human was created to shine in both the Darkness and the Light.

Lamat’s totem is the Rabbit, which is also the Cherokee Day Sign. The Rabbit represents Love Overflowing, the energies of re-birth, regeneration, ripening, harvest and abundance. LAMAT is seen as a day of “pure luck” by its ability to multiply to abundance whatever we focus on. It’s a Blessing that comes with the Responsibility to focus on what we want, given its potential for manifestation.

10-DAY PORTAL, DAY 3: Ether of Spirit
Portal Days hold the power to magnify our supernatural experiences through a thinning of the veil to the realm of Spirit. We were blessed with a magnification of our Consciousness for the purpose of our Highest Creation, a reality of Happiness, Harmony, and Love. On 5 Star/LAMAT, a Portal magnifies an Empowerment of Light. LAMAT empowers us to shine our Light, equally in all directions. Portals magnify our “lightning in the blood.” This is the Force of Life and our Sixth Sense of Knowing, experienced as Revelations, Epiphanies, or Experiences of Consciousness and Knowing that are accompanied by a “quickening,” as blood rushing through the body. Through their power of magnification, Portals offer an enhanced opportunity to experience our Spiritual Gifts. This “lightning charge” is our Direct Connection to the Power of the Creator that Consecrates an experience of Divine Consciousness.

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

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

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 Human way of understanding by comparing the difference between one thing and another. The Seed/KAN trecena is leading a journey of discovering our own Divine Design for our experience of Being.

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 world we Choose.

God created the design for the whole world. A Divine Consciousness is the Alpha and Omega, the first and last. An Omnipotent Creator holds the power to see everything from the beginning to the end. CHICCHAN can help us Know that the plans for “everything that could be” is seeded within us.

Serpent/CHICCHAN can ignite our Dream of Being through a Gift of Knowing its possible. The Serpent navigates by “feel.” The Serpent uses its sense of vibration through Mother Earth to Know the nearness of it’s prize. It doesn’t rely on sight or sound, but a sense of Inner Knowing it feels in the body.

8 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Living On Purpose: Day 8 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

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

8 Serpent/CHICCHAN is a Holy Day observed by the K’iche Maya as “Serpentine Day,” a day  that honors the Strength of Spirit and Force of Life. The Serpent is a catalyst that ignites our “Supernatural Senses.” As the Sign of “lightning in the blood,” our phase of Transformation begins with a new Spark of Knowing.

Like the Dragon Energy in the Seed, CHICCHAN can make our Unseen Power Known throughout our Whole Self as the Life Force itself. Our Gifts hold experiences that are common to us, until we are Conscious to Feel and Know them. This is only the beginning of a New Consciousness of Power.

Tone 8 holds the Peak Energy of Transformation. 8 is the number of “pure spirit.” The Mayan 13-count of creation relates to the hours of Solar Light. In the 8th Hour of Light the Sun resides in its zenith. Today, Serpent/CHICCHAN is positioned in it’s zenith Position of Power.

Our Phase of Transformation is directed by a Divine Agency. In a Sacred Exchange of Reciprocity, the effort we invested will be matched by an equal effort of Divine Power. Our Intention was to Create the Seed for our Harvest that starts out from Higher Ground. We’ve been taking inventory of Truth, the Divine Meaning and Purpose of our Gifts. Through Divine Intervention we’ll see the Truth of Power that will Transform us.
