3 Seed / KAN – Mission of Spirit: Day 3 of 13

3 Seed / KAN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 is the day of Movement. Through the action of movement or communication, a Dream conceived in our imagination is born into the world.

Night/AKBAL led us to the Void, the place of the Unknown where it’s possible to create anything. Undefined, no limits were placed on what could be. This is a place of the Unseen, yet no less real. Like our world inside the womb, it is a Promise of Life that is yet unknown to the Human within. In the womb we can only imagine a world we hear in muffled tones… as we wonder how we could ever cross the divide into an unseen dimension of being.

We anticipate, yet fear this new world at the same time. The Unknown is our Known. Drifting along in an unconscious state, we have everything we need. Only as the contractions begin, do we feel our freedom is more important. Only when pressed on all sides, do we surrender to an Intention to move into a new world.

Seed/KAN is a symbol of Humanity. They Maya related the Seed of Corn as a representation of all the People, the varied colors of our skin, and the colors that exist within the Human body. Seed holds our two identities, our unique “I Am” in the world, and our Divine “I Am” in Spirit.

1 Wind / IK – Mission of Spirit: Day 1 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

1 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

My heart breaks for all families who have lost their children to gun violence. A teenage boy from the Florida shooting was asked in an interview what he thought the solution to be. He said, “We have to be kind to each other every day, because we never know what someone else might be going through.” He held the Wisdom of Forgiveness.

He reflected our Divine Nature. It only takes one person to affect many. One person can help us see the Divinity in the Whole. Every Life is worth saving.

I believe in the Eternal Light of our Spirit. I pray their Lights continue to shine through a Higher Purpose.

with love, Debra

The Next 13 days…

The MULUC trecena called us to Live our Lives from the realm of Spirit. We were called make a Human sacrifice, to die to our life in the world and be reborn in Spirit. Under the direction of Wind/IK, we will apply this Intention to acquire the Wisdom of Experience.

Under the Wind/IK trecena we will bear the Labor of being Reborn. This is our Divine Destiny. The Creator made it easy to navigate in the realm of Spirit. We have every Spiritual Gift we Need.

GLOBAL BURNER DAY: 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN

The Global Burner Day marks a shift of energy. It’s common to experience some “overload” on days building up to a Global Burner. You may find yourself over-stimulated, yet exhausted at the same time. Relationships may be affected. Burner Days were observed by the Maya with Sacred Fire Ceremony for the purpose of restoring Harmony to the Community. Burner days accomplish a burn-off of residual energy that builds up through each season of the Tzolk’in.  See more on the 13-day Trecena Guide.

12th UINAL: We Ascended into the 12th Uinal of Understanding on 13 Crocodile/IMIX. We were Transformed to the Higher Consciousness that in the realm of Spirit, our “reality” is discerned through our Imagination. The Understanding we seek will be found in paying attention to our “wild ideas,” and thoughts that come out of nowhere. Our first Manifestation in this uinal is guided by 10 Monkey/CHUEN, the Creator who has fun without taking life in the world so seriously.We might learn by experience how much more adventurous and fun it is to Live in Spirit. We might also learn to accept that others may think we are crazy. IMIX already taught us it’s not “crazy.” It’s “genius!”

PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions. 1 Wind/IK is the only portal day in this trecena, though as the presiding Day Sign for this 13-day cycle, the Force of Wind will be magnified. Today, the Divine Inspiration from our Spiritual Gifts will be magnified.   

The Haab New Year: On February 20, 2018, 6 Deer/MANIK moves into position as the Year Bearer. The planetary cycle reflects that the world around us will call for us to establish a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement of providing a Divine Service to one another. We may find greater need to turn to each other in the coming year. Deer/MANIK, as the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, indicates the Power of our Authority. This shift is conceived by the Galactic Week of 1 Wind/IK. We can expect the Winds of Change, and the Power of the Wind at our back.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Deer/MANIK- will guide a flow of movement as a Divine Agent.
  • 7 Star/LAMAT – will balance the Above and the Below. LAMAT, the sign of “pure luck” will multiply the Light of our Spiritual Effort to Abundance.
  • 8 Offering/MULUC – the Holy Day of “pure spirit” will transform us through Divine Justice, returning the Salvation that is earned by Offering to Live in Spirit.
  • 9 Dog/OC – uses the Peak Energy of Transformation to change us through a Deeper Understanding of Unconditional Love.

7 Wind / IK – Application of Our Spiritual Nature: Day 7 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Wind / IK Glyph

7 Wind / IK Glyph

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 is the place of Balancing the “As Above, So Below.” Tone 7 is a place of an accounting to see “all that is, and all that is not.” Placed at the top of the pyramid, we have a 360 view and are given intention to reflect on the experiences that brought us here.

We’re preparing to enter the Transformation phase of this trecena, carried out by a Divine Agency. The same effort we applied to Spiritual Growth will be matched by an Intention of Divine Justice. On Tone 7 we see what we’ve learned by our own Intention.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit. Positioned in the North, IK resides in the direction of the Ancient Ones and the Collective Wisdom of those who have gone before. Through the Element of Air we are all connected. We breathe and were breathed by the Creator. The first sign of life we look for is the Sacred Breath.

7 is also seen as a symbol of the Jaguar, the nahaul of vision who’s magic lies in its Gratitude and Love for Mother Earth. The Jaguar guards the altars where Human and the Creator are Conscious of each other. The Jaguar is the shape-shifter capable to cross dimensions. Jaguar Knows the Womb of the Mother (IMIX) and hears her beating heart.

Today our Awareness is drawn to the “Spiritual Gift” through which we are One in the Whole. The Wisdom of the North is about our mental process and capabilities of Consciousness. The Element of Air is a Gift of Life and Communion with the Creator. A Gift of Knowing is offered through the Wind. The Cherokee call it the Whirlwind, referring to the double helix of smoke that carries our prayers to the Great Spirit. Mother Earth illustrates our path to Higher Consciousness as a “forever turning,” balancing the Above and the Below.

13 Wind / IK – Ascension: Day 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

13 Wind/IK completes our Mission with an Ascension of Spirit. 13 is the number that completes creation. It represents a connection made between the Above and the Below. As the number of theurgy, 13 symbolizes our ability through Ritual and Sacred Ceremony to call on a Divine Source to intervene in Human affairs.

Our ceremonies are Sacred as the expression of giving our full attention to Spirit. Holding the Truth of the Creator’s Sacred Exchange, we can Know we are Seen in Spirit.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Spirit and Breath of Life. The Creator’s voice is carried by the Wind. The T shaped portals the Maya carved in stone were made to magnify the sound of the Creator’s Voice.

On Tone 13 of Ascension we know we are changed. The Dog/OC trecena completes its mission by turning us back to our First Source of Love. Our first gift was our Divine Design.  Wind/IK represents the Element of Air that is related to the mind and our intelligence. Whatever the change, we will “Know” without the need to defend.  We’re Free Like the Wind.

6 Wind / IK – Journey of Discovery: Day 6 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 establishes a rhythm and flow of movement. We gain the momentum to complete another climb of Spiritual Growth. We’ve been focused on the elements of Creation… holding a Dream, stabilizing a direction, and generating the power to move forward. The Peak Energy of 6 brings it all together to accelerate our progress.

Like an athlete in training, it can be difficult to see our progress when we’re focused on the incremental steps. On Tone 6 we take off as our new skills are brought together.

The Peak Tones 6, 7, 8, and 9 are rich with potential. You can mark them on the calendar as the days when any effort holds its highest potential for success. As we become familiar with the incremental movements of creation, we can begin to use each day for its highest purpose. We can go with the flow, weathering the challenges that are necessary for growth, knowing a better day lies ahead.

Today, Wind/IK is the source of our momentum. The Earth/CABAN trecena inspires us to live in correspondence with Mother Earth. Gaining the knowledge of her cycles and forces of nature, we can engage with her momentum. On 6 Wind/IK we have the Wind of Spirit at our back.

12 Wind / IK – Witness to a Miracle: Day 12 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 brings the intention of Understanding and offers us a gift of Retrospection. As we look back on our experience, all the pieces can be drawn together to establish a new Personal Truth. We are transformed by the Wisdom of our new experience.

The Monkey/CHUEN trecena holds the purpose of Inspiration. The Monkey helped us to see our lives as an Artistic Expression of Being. We are always creating. Through our Consciousness of the Divine, we can create Beauty. Each experience creates a thread in our tapestry of darkness and light. As we look back, placing the threads together, beauty can always be created from Higher Consciousness.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit. The Cherokee Whirlwind represents the whirling of life and the breath of the Universe that carries the Sacred Smoke to the Great Spirit. The rhythm of our breath is the pulse of the universe. We breath and are breathed into Light by the Creator.

Wind/IK resides in the North, the direction that connects us to the Ancestors and their Sacred Wisdom. The glyph illustrates a portal carved in stone that is seen in many of the sacred sites of the Maya. They were windows to the stars that magnified the sound of the wind… the sounds of life and the Voice of the Creator. They call attention to the world created by the sound of our voice.

5 Wind / IK – Quest for Truth: Day 5 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 is a day of a Spiritual Empowerment. Led by Flint’s Intention of revealing Truth, we are Empowered by the Truth we can discern for our Self. Wind/IK is the Breath of Spirit and Breath of Life that carries our prayers to the Creator, and returns its response through the Wind.

The Wind/IK glyph illustrates the portals carved in stone for the purpose of observing the heavens and magnifying the Sound of the Wind.

Wind is the Element of Air through which all living things are connected. The Creator’s spoken words still linger in the Wind, along with the Vibration brought to life by Divine Intention.

At our birth, the Element of Air is Human’s first source of Power. The world stands still waiting for the first breath that evidences the Life of a new Human Being. The Latin origin of the word “animate” literally means “to give breath to.”

5 Wind/IK reminds us that our First Gift of Life was the Breath of Spirit that would empower a Divine Communication. A Sacred Exchange was the first priority in the Creator’s Dream to manifest our Being for a purpose of Relationship.

THE HAAB YEAR BEARER: 5 Wind/IK is the Kin shared by the current Year Bearer. Its Intention of Empowerment is magnified by sharing the Higher Intention of the Haab round. The energy of today is the Highest Intention carried by this Year. The new Haab Year began last February 20, 2017. The experiences presented by this new year have been leading to the Manifestation of Power gifted by the Flint trecena’s Quest for Truth.
