9 Earth/CABAN: The Completion of Mother’s Love to Heal the World

THE TRECENA OF OFFERING/MULUC, AND THE NEW YEAR GUIDED BY 9 EARTH/CABAN

A PRAYER FOR THE HIGHEST ALTAR

Greetings Kin,

41 years ago today my life was changed by the birth of a daughter. I waited to see the face of one in the womb that always leaned into my loving nudge. She is a beautiful thing, an Aries with more heart than belies such a petite frame of 5′ 2″.

When she was 6 she kept a calendar for an entire year, completing each square with a big X every night before bed. She came home with a baggie of Lamb’s Ear leaves, we called “bunny ears” for the soft furry feel. She said, “I brought you a gift from Mother Nature.”

The Highest Love is known between a Mother and the child of her own flesh and blood. A Mother always Feels the Feelings as her own.

Today the candles on her cake hold a dream for her future. I couldn’t feel the dream any more deeply than I do today. Facing the fears of today and tomorrow, she said she hopes there will still be a time to Live out all her dreams. She said she still wants her life to make a difference.

She is nurse that serves the elderly and provides hospice care in a senior care facility. The question of “everyday” is whether this could be the time to be “locked in” or “locked out.” When I share my concern her answer is, “I’m a lot tougher than I look.”

“Mother’s Love” is always tougher than it looks, and Mother Earth has the claws to save her children. The Year Bearer 9 Earth/CABAN symbolizes a Completion of Divine Justice for the Heart of Compassionate Love.

11 Storm / CAUAC, A Divine Atonement: Day 11 of 13

11 Storm / CAUAC

 THE TRECENA OF OFFERING/MULUC

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 holds the Intention of Resolution. We are offered clarity through a Higher Frequency of Vibration. Fuzzy images in the background can now be seen for what they are in high definition. The purpose is to Know the Truth that resolves a Divine Way forward.

Storm/CAUAC offers a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit, like the clouds that break to pour a blessing of Living Water to Earth. Lightning adds the Nitrogen that supports the building blocks of life. Thoughts that linger in the chaos of a storm cloud are broken through by a Solid Light of God’s, the building blocks, of a Divine Life.

We are being inspired to Use the Truth we’ve climbed so hard to know. Education is never an end to itself, nor is a body of knowledge. If it were, Human would have to spend a lifetime just to know one thing. The point of Knowledge is expanding variables of Truth upon which to make a discernment of MANY things – like things, different things, impossible, and possible things. Wisdom is the Blessing that is only known by perpetual application of Our Truth. Some Truth will stand, and some Truth will be raised to Higher Ground.

10 Flint/ETZNAB manifested the most important truth is our own. The more deeply we look into the treasures of our life, the more we know we were meant to be. Only by claiming something as True, can realize our own illusions. God will use the Power of All Love to change us. Some changes take time.

10 Flint / ETZNAB – A Divine Atonement: Day 10 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

10 Flint / ETZNAB

Flint Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash. The transformer brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.

ETZNAB is known to do whatever it takes to drive the point home. Flint is also known as Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror that returns the perfect reflection of the Truth.

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. What were plans, dreams, and intentions become real to the Consciousness of Human Being. Tone 10 is said to present a challenge. Changed by a Divine Transformation, Truth is born in our heart. God created a new way to Love the Wisdom of every experience as the path our Heart could feel and follow.

In order to manifest the creation of our Highest Love, we must claim it as our own Truth. Just as it is, our own Expression of Love is the offering drawn from a Human heart to share at God’s Highest Altar. The altar we were given for a New Life is Mother Earth, under the Holy, Holy, Holy number 9 that is the Whole Investment in the Highest One that feels our Heart in every moment.

Flint/ETZNAB is a day that delivers a sword of Truth to the heart. Flint strikes a spark of the unexpected Truth that can heal us as it sweeps away all the shadows. Holding the Element of Air, ETZNAB can heal our mind and heart. The MULUC trecena is a cycle that intends for us to Honor our Emotions and Feelings, and to Honor the Emotions and Feelings of Others. MULUC is about water everywhere from the cosmos to our own tears. ALL water is Holy, holding the Ether of our Human Spirit. The Intention of the MULUC trecena is to draw us into Atonement with the Creator and the Power of Love that lasts forever, from the beginning to the end.

9 Earth / CABAN – A Divine Atonement: Day 9 of 13

Greetings Kin,

We celebrate a New Year of the Haab in the Northern Hemisphere. K’inich Ahau heralded the first Light of 9 Earth/CABAN as the Year Bearer to lead a new Solar cycle of planetary intention. Tone 9 Completes, holding the Intention of Patience to See the Big Picture. Earth/CABAN is the Movement that creates Time, and the experiences that Define our Identity by the Choices we make. The Cherokee Heron, symbolizes Life as a perpetual movement toward the next Human field of Abundance.

On Mother Earth there is always a field of Abundance for the Wisdom to Create the treasures today for the Miracles of tomorrow. In the K’iche tradition, the sign N’oj is the Sacred Word that defines a Consciousness of Identity. It’s said that days marked by the Ollin, Caban, N’oj, and Heron, are marked by a Light of Knowing who we are. The Aztec Ollin lies at the center of the stone calendar marking 20 places in Time. This is NOT the time to go along. This Time is marked as a cycle that will define us, a time to make our own Wise choices, and to Live with all our heart.

Today begins a Solar cycle that will share the Big Picture of what Divine Human Beings were intended to be, the Heroes that God dreamed in the End and Loved enough to create Time to witness a Miracle from the beginning.

May we give thanks for the Day and Honor the Divine Experience planned ahead, waiting to be seen and known for All Time. May the Miracle be that Human Beings divinely see and acknowledge how much we love one another. Earth/CABAN holds the Element of Fire and can strike the Flames of Love in our heart.

May we begin the New Year with a Blessing to remember the Mother that offers us everything “To Be.” May our Offering be our Dream, so she can give it another life as God’s Highest Manifestation.

love, in lak’ech, Debra

“It is consciousness that divides creation into its separate parts. It is only when you are conscious of something(s) that you can appreciate that part of creation by and with your discernment.

Your life is peppered with moments when you noticed some details of your environment or situation. Like, seeing the “Veins in the leaf” or the beauty of color and pattern in a butterfly’s wings. Of course you have your own examples but each of them were the exercise of your consciousness noticing the differences of stimuli available in that moment. The more conscious you are, the more you can take in effortlessly.

With consciousness, each thing in our lives can stand out and be appreciated. With lower levels of consciousness the tendency is to group or lump things together into a grey threatening mass. What I think this whole journey of conscious evolution is about, is the increasing ability to be conscious of, appreciate and express gratitude for all of Creation piece by piece until we get it all…” ~ From an Article by Ian Lungold

Greetings Kin,

9 Earth / CABAN

Tone 9 is the Peak Tone that Completes a Transformation. Tone 9 offers the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. A Transformation of Spirit is completed through a Realization of Higher Purpose.

CABAN raises our Consciousness to the Movement of Mother Earth that Creates Time through which we could have a dynamic experience of the Creator’s Love. Through the movement of Mother Earth we can experience the Dawn, the Sunrise that brings Light to the Darkness.

Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Mother Earth. The K’iche Maya call it Noj, the Day Sign of Knowledge. Mother Earth is the Source of everything Human knows.

Noj is revered as a Sacred Word, meaning all the capabilities of the Human Mind. Noj is Human’s means of Movement with a Divine Meaning and Purpose. Noj is the Force that influences us to move by Divine Intention and Be Seen in the Identity of our Spirit.

The Cherokee Day Sign, the Heron, is a nuhaul of Movement, living a life of perpetual migration. The Heron is the symbol of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. The Aztec Sign the Ollin, marks the center of the Aztec calendar and the 20 positions of the all-in-one. The Face at the center of the Ollin is K’inich Ahau, the Sun shining the Light of Illumination.

8 Wisdom / CIB – An Atonement: Day 8 of 13

Greetings Kin,

8 Wisdom/CIB was the day a Dream began to manifest before my eyes. When the post was written I was still lost in Time, writing journals for days ahead when I might be away from a computer. I was living the dream before it happened. Once a ticket was in my hand, I could really begin to believe.

The hardest dreams are the ones we think we’ll never see, and more important… sure we’ve never seen before. Yet, if we’re just reaching for a vision in our imagination, can’t we Dream? Are we afraid to dream?

I made it to a plane to another country. Though now the fear ahead, “How will I make it from the NEXT airport to the hotel?” I’d have to fly on Faith through the next “impossible” I had never known before.

There ARE archaeological treasures to learn WHY one illusion is easier to believe than another. The higher we reach, the most we risk losing.  Is that why WE CREATE impossible? “This was wildly impossible… nothing like this ever happened before.” Or, has it? I spent 11+ years flying for a living, with the points to board first and upgrade to first class, at least once in a while. Flying was the first job I ever dreamed and claimed as an airline attendant when I was 19. (I earned my wings in the Ascension uinal 13.) How did a Flight (for an Eagle, no less) ever appear Impossible to me? Even if it was now the money, over Time it could be saved. Surely over YEARS of crying about it, it could have been easily saved.

It’s funny/not-funny how our unconscious mind will create the evidence to support whatever truth that we CHOOSE to believe. Could the REAL truth of our past, raise the Faith to believe the same opportunities are meant for ALL Time?

Tone 8 is the Holy Day when Truth will be revealed. Impossible can be changed to possible, if we can Forgive Today, and see the Truth of Yesterday. May we see the pennies saved for Love, one day at a time, will manifest a treasure meant to be the Truth of ALL Time.

Why is it, when we see Love again, we’re sure we’ve never seen it before? And if we’ve seen it before, we’re sure such beauty could never be known again? Why are we afraid of a dream we’ve known? Why do we create “impossible,” while we reach to believe in all possibility?

Is your “impossible” something that’s already happened before? Why is it impossible now?

love, Debra

8 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 begins the Transformation of this trecena. Tone 8 is the Number of “Pure Spirit.” Our transformation begins with the fulfillment of Divine Justice. The Creator’s Intention of Harmony and Equity is the Highest Intention as the zenith hour of Solar Light.

The glyph represents the mind in a state of Forgiveness and Enlightenment. The brain radiates its Light in all directions. Wisdom/CIB offers Spiritual Communion with the nahauls, the Elders, and the sum of their collective wisdom. This is Holy Day that honors the Ancestors, suitable to receive their Forgiveness, and a day to pray for the souls of our Grandparents. This is a day to pray for Spiritual Strength, and for a Long Life to achieve it. Tone 8 holds the Potential for a Spiritual Experience.

Wisdom/CIB guides an accomplishment of “Right Relationship.” The Cherokee Owl is a symbol of Wisdom, a mystic ferryman that holds the torch aloft to illuminate the journey to the realm of Spirit.

Below, I share part of my journal from the last round. On the same Kin I was facing an unknown journey, afraid to drive across town. 🙂 It always makes me smile to see the synchronicity in one round to the next, yet always from the next higher ground.

8 Wisdom / CIB – Wisdom for a Wesak Moon Prayer

Greetings Kin,

My Wesak prayers for the whole resolved into a single word – “Impossible.” The false truth that was only an illusion to begin with, has been burned away for the Whole as my prayer for the Wesak Moon. It has been broken down, burned through, dissolved, chemically changed, and frozen – for the WHOLE of it to be given back to Living Waters of Mother Earth for a Blessing that will carry it out of HUMAN’s sight.

THE TRECENA OF OFFERING/MULUC

Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Wisdom/CIB trecena.

 

7 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)

Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.

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: Eagle’s 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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
