1 Offering / MULUC – A Gift of Forgiveness: Day 1 of 13


1 Offering / MULUC


Greetings Kin,

The next 13 days…

MULUC is a trecena of incoming “Light.” Offering/MULUC represents the Moon, our Emotions, and Water everywhere from the cosmos to our tears. Water is the element that holds the Ether of Spirit. Through a sacrifice Atonement offers a Healing of our Emotions.

Ascending from the Wisdom trecena, we hold a Higher Consciousness of our Divine Nature. We found Inner Strength by recognizing the relationship that the Creator made possible with us through all the Spiritual Gifts we are given. The Offering/MULUC trecena will inspire us to make a Sacred Exchange by giving something back. Through an Offering we are brought into Atonement with the Creator. Offering/MULUC inspires a gift worthy of what we have received.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether The Offering/MULUC trecena includes 3 Portal Days. Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions and magnify our Spiritual Gifts. Through Atonement, we will be “tuned-in” to the Creator. An Intention of Unconditional Love will be magnified on 2 Dog/OC.  On our first day of movement 3 Monkey/CHUEN will show the way to move forward as a Creator, drawn by curiosity, beauty, and Divine Inspiration. Through an Offering we will manifest a Truth that wasn’t seen on 10 Flint/ETZNAB that can heal our pain and suffering.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Jaguar/IX – will guide a Flow of Spiritual Momentum and Movement
  • 7 Eagle/MEN – will offer the eyes to see the Gift that comes from a Sacred Exchange
  • 8 Wisdom/CIB – the Holy Day will begin a Transformation as the Divine Justice of using our Spiritual Gifts for an Offering of Forgiveness
  • 9 Earth/CABAN – empowers a Transformation of Oneness with Creation

11th & 12th UINALS:

The 11th Uinal completes an Intention of Resolution, a 20-day cycle that brings Clarity to our Intention to move forward. The Truths we’ve learned through this round of the Tzolk’in will all be drawn together for a Revelation of Purpose. On 13 Crocodile/IMIX we will enter the 12th uinal of Understanding that helps us Realize our Power of Creation. Our Seeds will be formed for the Fruit of Spirit we will bear.

7 Offering / MULUC – Vision Quest: Day 7 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.

7 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 7 we complete our climb of Spiritual Growth. The Intention held by Tone 7 is Balance. It’s called the “tone of reflection” because it guides us to see all that is, and all that is not. From the top of the pyramid, we have a 360 degree view.

Tone 7 represents the Intention of Balance and the Principle of “As Above, So Below.” This principle was preserved in Ancient teachings as a Truth that what is accomplished in one realm of existence (spirit, mental, imagination, physical) is balanced in every other realm.

This is the fundamental process of the power to Create. The experiences we create are born from the Ethers.  We’re driven by a Consciousness we barely pay attention to. We create our experience through every choice we make, consciously or unconsciously.

The AKBAL trecena’s purpose is to inspire us to harness the Power of Spirit within our Self… to use this principle to Dream a Dream we want to come True.

Offering/MULUC is the day of Atonement. Through the giving of a Sacred Offering, we are in Oneness with the Creator. When we Offer our Gratitude, we enter into a Sacred Exchange. The first Offerings were given to us. In Sacred Ceremony with the Creator, we are Conscious of each other.

PORTAL DAY: Ether of Spirit
The Peak Energy of Balance is magnified by a portal that thins the veil to all dimensions. At Peak Tone 7 we are given a 360 view from the “top of a pyramid” to see the connections between the Spirit and Natural World all around use. A portal can magnify the Truth that we are Creating from the Realm of Spirit.  Portals are days that magnify our Gifts of Spirit – our Sixth Sense of Knowing.

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


6 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 is a day of Peak Energy that establishes a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement to complete our climb. Compared to the energy of a great athlete, we engage our greatest effort to build the momentum for a new wave of Transformation.

Through Harmonic Resonance, our Spiritual Growth is accomplished in incremental steps that raise our frequency and vibration. As we are drawn into sympathy with the next-higher frequency, our Spiritual Consciousness is raised along a pattern of vibration, like moving up the musical scale.

This inclination to be drawn higher or lower is foundational to the Forces of Nature. We can always find a higher or lower value that pulls us one way or another. The values of the world pull us down, like the force of gravity. Our heavenly values draw us ever-upward. To be transformed we only raise ourselves by one value to be drawn to the next. An incremental increase in our Consciousness, opens the way to the next-higher Consciousness. Shifting the direction of our movement by one degree, draws us to the next degree in that same direction.

Offerinng/MULUC guides a way of Atonement with the Creator. Atonement is defined as a reconciliation between Human and the Creator. The Bible tells the story of an Atonement through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. We must also die to the old to be transformed into something new. Through small sacrificial deaths of our Human Self, our Spiritual Identity is incrementally raised to become “in tune” with the Creator.

10-DAY PORTAL: This is day 4 of our 10-day journey through a Spiritual Portal that thins the veil to other dimensions. The Portal raises our Consciousness to our Ethereal Nature. A portal on 6 MULUC can elevate our Consciousness to an Offering of our Self that will move us toward our Spiritual Transformation.

12 Offering / MULUC – Quest for Truth: Day 12 of 13


12 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 brings the energy of Understanding. This is the day when we can claim a new Truth as our own. The Flint/ETZNAB trecena as guided us to see the Truth of our Spiritual Authority, when we stand in our Integrity as Agents of the Creator.

Offering/MULUC is a symbol of the Moon and our emotions, and water everywhere from the cosmos to our own tears. This is a day to honor our emotions and the emotions of others. Our emotions are the language of the heart.

As we offer our deepest feelings to the Creator, we are raised up to be seen in the true condition of our Spirit. The MULUC glyph illustrates a single drop of water, raised up above the whole. When we surrender ourselves to a heart-to-heart with the Creator, we are raised to be seen as we are. Through an Offering, we receive Atonement. Of one mind with the Creator, we see ourselves through God’s eyes. As we are returned to the whole, the Unconditional Love we received will send ripples through the whole.

5 Offering / MULUC – Baptism of Spirit: Day 5 of 13



5 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 brings the energy of empowerment. Each cycle of 13 represents a completed cycle of harvest. Each cycle begins with a seed in germination and ends the harvest that produces the seed for the next generation of our Spiritual Transformation. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. On Tone 5 we gather what is needed for the Maturity of Spiritual Being.

Offering/MULUC represents the Moon, Water and our Emotions. Water is the Element capable to hold the Ether of Spirit. Through water we can receive a Baptism and Purification of Spirit.

Through our Sacred Offerings we are Atoned with the Creator, sharing the same Heart, Mind and Intention for a Blessing of the Whole. The glyph illustrates a single drop suspended above the whole. Through an Offering we are seen by the Creator at an altar above. We are raised up in Spirit by a Divine Acknowledgement of the Love we hold within. Returned to the One, our Blessings will ripple through the Whole.

Humans holds the longing to be seen in our Highest State of Being. We hope to be remembered in the Light of our Highest Intentions. Through the Eyes of God, we can see the Purity of our Spirit and the evidence of our Growing Light.

10-DAY PORTAL: Element of Ether

Tones 2 thru 12 of the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena open a Portal that thins the veil to the Dimension of Spirit and Magnifies our Awareness of Spirit. 5 Offering/MULUC empowers us to See the Light of our own Spirit as it is seen from above. A Portal magnifies the Spiritual Experience of Being Seen in our own Divinity.

Offer/MULUC offers the Power of Holy Spirit. Symbolizing water everywhere from the cosmos to our own tears, water is the Blood of Earth that flows through the rivers and streams  from which we draw the nourishment of life. Through a purification of water we are raised to New Life by the Holy Spirit within. Returned to the Earth we will rejoin the Whole to exist as One with water everywhere.

MULUC is a sign of our Emotions, the language of the Heart. This is a day to Honor our Emotions as a Holy Gift from which we are made capable of Compassion and Unconditional Love. MULUC is a day to Honor our Feelings and the Feelings of Others. The Creator sees the Purity of our Intention through the feelings of our Heart. Our brokenness is only the evidence of our Longing for Love. By surrendering our Self to Divine Will, we Acknowledge the Creator’s Unconditional Love.

MULUC is a day to pay back and pay forward. We are called to Acknowledge others in their own Best Light. This is a day to remember the Unexpected Blessings we’ve received from others and how it made us feel. An Offering offers Joy for both the Giver and the Receiver. The Receiver is Acknowledged and Seen, and the Giver sees itself in its Brightest Light. A Portal will magnify the Feelings of a Divine Exchange.

When we give a gift, we create our own Joy as we anticipate the Joy of Another. We express our Feelings in the Image of the Creator. So does the Creator anticipate the Joy in the Moment when we become Conscious to Acknowledge the Receipt of a Gift of Divinity.

MULUC calls us to deeds of unexpected kindness for one another. The value of any gift is not assessed by the cost, but the time and thought that went into it. An unexpected gift holds greater value than a gift that marks an occasion because it Honors the Person versus an event.

5 Offering/MULUC offers us the Power of walking in the Way of the Creator. We can know the Nature of God within us as we Give the Gift of Unconditional Love. Through surrender we give freely without any expectation of a return, because we acknowledge that something has already been given.

The Cherokee Day Sign, the River, represents the Flow of Divine Spirit. The 6th uinal of the Tzolk’in establishes our Flow and Rhythm of Movement. The Light we can give that never goes out is Love that Acknowledges an equal exchange. By paying something back, we allow others to see themselves as the first Giver.

To all my relations, may we Acknowledge the Creator as a Divine Giver who anticipates the moment when a Divine Gift will be Received. May we Acknowledge the thought that went into a Gift of Shared Divinity. May we see the Greater Gift of being Acknowledged as Deserving of such a Blessing. May we make an Offering to the Creator, given in Humility and Acknowledgment of a Gift of Unconditional Love – our Greatest Source of Power. May we recognize that we were given the Power of all Possibility, flowing as One in a River of Spirit.

in lak’ech, i am another you

5 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)

Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.

Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purification. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.

Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA:  The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven.  The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon.  Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand.  People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything.  These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces.  The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues.  When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level.  As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.

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


10 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

We began the Sun/AHAU trecena holding a Divine Intention to Live in the Light of the Creator to bring our Own Light to the world. On Tone 10 of Manifestation, what started as an Inspiration that only existed in our Imagination, makes itself known in our physical reality. Tone 10 carries a personal responsibility. For a new creation to be born into our life, we have to see it and claim it for our Self. Today we can see the evidence of our New Creation.

Our mission has been one of Acknowledging our True Identity, and taking on the Role that was meant as our Life Purpose.

Offering/MULUC is a Day Sign of self-sacrifice and Atonement. Through an Offering, we allow our lives to be led by a Higher Power. We volunteer our Self to the experiences that life brings, relying on the Higher Judgement of the Creator. We can see that the very things that are put before us, were entrusted to us as a Holy Charge. What we Heal in our own lives, we are Healing for the world.

The glyph represents a single drop of water raised up from the Whole. Through the ritual and ceremony of an Offering, we raise ourselves up to be Seen by the Creator. Seeing our Self through the Eyes of the Creator, we are Blessed by a Vision of Unconditional Love. As we see ourselves as Whole and Perfect in the Creator’s eyes, we are Blessed and Purified. Any lingering doubt about the Power of the Love can suddenly be washed away as we are Made One with the Creator. As we are then returned to the Whole, the ripples evidence how our Gift Transforms the Whole.

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


3 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 3 we bring a new Intention to Life. Our first Movement toward an Intention creates a Vibration that follows its own course of Manifestation. Our first step will lead us to the next. Tone 3 births a Dream into the realm of physicality to chart our course from Point A to Point B. Our Self-Expression births a Personification of Spirit that is capable of Creation, as long as we continue to move forward as each step is presented.

We were created for the Purpose of Relationship. The Mind draws knowledge by comparison. We are able to “Know Thyself” through a comparison to something else. The Creator is made capable to Know itself through a relationship with Human.

Offering/MULUC is the Day Sign of Atonement. An Offering of our Self reunites us with the Creator. Acting on a Choice to let go of our Own Way, we become an Expression of a Divine Creator.
