MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
8 Eagle / MEN
Peak Tone 8 begins the Transformation phase of each 13-day trecena. Tone 8 holds the Intention of Divine Justice, represented by the Number 8 of “pure spirit.” A human climb of Spiritual Growth shifts to the energy of a descent on the stairs leading down. Like a descent we are drawn forward by an unseen force like gravity.
7 Jaguar/IX offered a Reflection from Above for us to see beyond the veil to the steps that continue to lead upward through a threshold to the realm of Spirit. 7 Jaguar/IX offered the vision for a Leap of Faith. By an Unseen Power we are drawn Above to realize a Promise of “pure spirit.”
The Transformation guided by Tones 8 and 9 are led by a Divine Agency. Human’s climb was the Offering that was promised a Sacred Exchange. The Love we intended to Create will be manifested by the Highest Authority of Love, the Creator, the all-in-one.
The Creator’s Divine Justice is Harmony and Equity. Tone 8 reflects the 8th Hour, the Hour of Sun’s Zenith Light. Number 8 is a symbol of Abundance to Infinity. There is no “human intention” on Tone 8, other than To Be, To See, and Receive the Justice of Harmony and Equity.
Every Ascension is built upon the Higher Ground of the last trecena. The last trecena led by Eagle/MEN encouraged our Highest Hopes and Aspirations. The Eagle is the Intermediary that lifts us up for a Higher View. From Above we are able to see a direct path from Point A to Point B without any obstacles. From Up Above, in our highest proximity to the Creator, we see what the Creator sees – the Truth of a Light that always shines in our future.
We are completing the steps of a human orbit of 260-days. Directing our thoughts through 13 steps of Creation, seen from 20 different Perspectives, we become Conscious of what our Heart knows – the Creator’s Love never failed to shine, and never failed to offer a new beginning with every Sunrise. Our Divine Justice is a Promise that the Creator’s Love is there for us to see, and will always be seen when we hold the Consciousness to Look for it.
8 Eagle/MEN offers the Zenith Light to the Eagle’s Vision of our Future. By a Divine Intervention we will See a Truth of Love in the Future, beyond our Highest Hopes and Dreams. The Eagle’s power of flight relies on Intuition. To reach its intended destination, an Eagle doesn’t calculate a way, but focuses solely on the destination and leans in to the Power of the Wind.
The Power of the Wind is generated by the Breath of Life and Spirit. The Whole of Creation was drawn from a Whirlwind of the Creator’s Love. The Truth of the End was Spoken from the Beginning. Today a Truth of Light in our Future, proves the Creator’s promise to our Heart. Each orbit holds the Intention of a Major Life change that draws us Higher and Closer to the Light Above.
An Eagle can see the prize nearly 2 miles away. All an Eagle has to see is a small speck of color far in the distance to Believe the Dream is within its grasp. The Eagle’s Miracle is that its range of vision is perfectly measured so that everything it can see lies within its grasp. There is no Dream too High if Human can see it. Human was capable to create whatever we see, even the “impossible.”
Human was created to live beyond our limitations of physicality. The creation of Human Flight is one example. Another is the creation of Vision far beyond human’s natural capabilities. There are Miracles always around us that prove human “impossibilities” were made possible through the application of Consciousness and Believing in the Possibilities. We inherently believe in the harmony and equity of all possibilities. We Believe that where there’s a Will there is a Way.
8 Eagle/MEN draws into focus a Truth of Human’s unlimited possibilities of Consciousness and Love. We are always seeking answers to Truth beyond human current limits. We anticipate a Revelation of something we’ve never Seen or Known before. We are never left in the dark. We already know the Truth, the Miracle of Divine Consciousness is an ever-elevating perspective of Truth we already know. The Truth of Love was Intended to be Known from the Beginning to the End. Through a Divine Transformation a Truth we already hold in Faith will be drawn to the Higher Consciousness of Believing.
Things look different when we Believe. We see Dreams differently when we believe. When we are still “Hoping” we’re distracted by obstacles that could stand in our way. When we Believe we are manifesting our Dream, our eyes are Drawn to that Truth in our Future.
Once, my pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam was impossible. With a discernment of “impossible” the “injustice of impossible” was all I could see. It wasn’t until “impossible” became “possible” that my own thoughts turned to imagine the ending and the means and the way of getting there. When the ticket was in my hand, I was free to imagine my future with my whole heart. Instead of thinking about the obstacles, I imagined being there. I was already on the journey, exploring online the places I would go and see. I could see myself there, instead of everyone else who got to go except me. All the obstacles between Point A and Point B disappeared from my field of vision. I saw myself get on the plane. I saw the transport that would get me from the airport to the hotel. I imagined the sacred ceremony. None of these thoughts were a part of hoping. The journey of mind began from Believing.
The Miracle happened before I ever reached the destination… when the perception turned from “impossible” to “possible.” Once I saw “possibility” I saw how flimsy a truth of “impossibility” can be. People get on planes every day and fly to the Yucatan. Not for one minute did I ever see anything impossible in that. Why would something so easy be discerned as an impossibility for ME? I realized the dream was never “impossible.” The Real Truth was it was only a Dream I’d never chosen to follow.
We ALL know that our Dreams ARE possible. Some will take more time than others, but don’t we ALL KNOW that anything is possible with Time? Don’t we all Know genius at anything is only a matter of Time we would invest in Knowing? Our heart knows the Truth of the possibility all along. ALL things become possible when we are Conscious to See and Acknowledge what we already Know is True.
If we Believe in the Creator’s Love and Power there’s no reason to believe in Lost Hope. When all hope is gone, there is eternally one Hope we will always turn to. Human was given the eternal Light to always take one last Leap of Faith.
On 8 Eagle/MEN our eyes are turned to a Truth about our Highest Hopes and Aspirations. A Divine Creator promised we could never dream Too High. It only makes Divine Sense. If we could, what Truth would we be able to stand on? Which dreams would be covered? And, how would we Know? If we believe ANY Dream is made possible by a Divine Creator, we have to believe that by an Intention of Harmony and Equity, the Promise is equal for every “impossible” Dream.
The Eagle lies in the West, the direction of our future. Holding the Element of Water, the Eagle is associated with our Emotions and our Response to the Unknown experiences of Life. The Eagle can resolve the emotions of our fear by a Promise of One Truth we could always Know – the Power of the Creator’s Love has no limit or reason to withhold ANY Dream that is known to our Heart. Love guarantees Divine Justice.
Under the Divine Justice of Tone 8, a Creator along with a Divine Agency above, intervenes for us to do what we are unable to do for our Self. By a Miracle of Divine Intervention our thoughts can be re-arranged to line up with the Truth we were meant to Believe. One Tone 8 we will know the Truth that we were Trying to Believe through every Leap of Faith. Moving toward a destination beyond our own limit is our proof of Faith we invested to Believe.
To all my relations, may we look at all the “impossible” things that Human has created the Ways and Means to do. May we see the Truth made obvious over Time. May we see what was “impossible” 10 years ago is an every-day part of life today. May we look to our future to see what is possible today that was impossible 260-days ago. May we conceive a Truth that “impossible” made “possible” was not such a monumental thing, but a small change of mind and the sense to look far enough ahead to see the Truth of the Miracle.
May we ask for the Vision of Divine Justice to KNOW and BELIEVE ALL our Dreams are Possible.
in lak’ech, i am another you

8 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weighs all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement ‘as above, so below,’ from simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation, some eights are ‘neat freaks.’
Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.
Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation.Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions,cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance. Totem-Eagle. Powerful energy for success in worldly affairs, due to far seeing vision. Ability to create masses of money and abundance through an intellectual type of profession. Eagle asks for what he desires and manifests it. Professor, lawyer, teacher, leader.
