10 Road / EB – Vision Quest: Day 10 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Road / EB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 is the day of Manifestation. What is focused on by Intention becomes Real. Tone 10 presents a challenge and responsibility. To manifest any creation, we have to claim that it’s True.

We Dreamed for a new Seed that could Awaken, knowing from the Beginning the Truth of it’s own Power and Divinity to manifest its Dreams. We dreamed of a Divine Human Being.

Road/EB is the Day Sign of Human and represents our Human Destiny and a Sacred calendar that charts a Divine Journey. The Road of our Destiny is illustrated on Human’s head.

The Miracle of the Maya’s discovery was a calendar within Human. They learned everything from the experience of Mother Earth. They must have noticed their journeys crossed each day at the same time for the same meaning and purpose, to imagine that Human had an Inherent Way, just as all other living things had their ways and migrations.

The calendar marks each day Sacred that we hold life on Earth and marks all of Human’s cycles. From the micro to the macro, they counted 260 days as one complete cycle of Human Transformation.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Monkey / CHUEN

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 carries the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. The completion of an understanding is all important to 9. There is said to be great suffering if we don’t look more deeply into our Self.

Monkey/CHUEN resides with Dog/OC at the center of the Tzolk’in representing the Inherent Gifts of a Divine Human Being… the Power to Love and Create.

CHUEN is the Weaver of Time and Master of the Arts who weaves the Threads of our Experience in to the Beautiful Tapestry of Life. CHUEN knows the value of Contrast and Color. Beauty is woven through threads of Dark and Light.

Monkey/CHUEN knows the Magic of Life on Earth as a Laboratory for Divine Dreams and Creations. Monkey offers the example of a Divine Creator who is Moved by Emotions, rather than Ruled by them. The Monkey Knows the Beauty of Love, and that it the most Divine Discovery, the journey would end.

Monkey is said to never finish the Masterpiece it starts. It drops everything when it sees the next shiny thing. The Dog showed us what Love was all about, reveling in the glory of everything. Monkey shows us the Meaning and Purpose of all the journeys from a Divine Perspective Above.

Monkey/CHUEN inspires a Discernment of a Divine Meaning and Purpose. 9 Monkey/CHUEN is one of the few Holy Days that is celebrated on Tone 9. This is the day of Initiation for the Mayan Priestess. Mayan Priestesses were among the guardians at Mayan Sacred Sites who served as an Oracle of Wisdom for those who made a pilgrimage. The ceremony of Initiation marks the Day to Acknowledge our own Divine Discernment and Compassionate Love.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

The Akbal trecena guides an Awakening of Spirit that inspires our deepest dreams. We completed the Human effort of Faith, to reach Higher Ground of Spiritual Growth. On Tone 8 our transformation is begun by the Hand of Divine Agency.

Tone 8 holds the Intention of Divine Justice. The Number 8 is a symbol of “pure spirit,” and Abundance to Infinity.

The manifestation of the Dream of our Highest Aspiration will be led by the Dog and the Monkey. Together they reside at the Center of the Tzolk’in as the central identities of a Divine Creator.

Every transformation is built on the Higher Ground of the last. Our last trecena was led by the Dog. We carried a Human dream of Light into the world.

7 Offering / MULUC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 holds the Intention of Balance, completing our climb of Spiritual Growth to the top of the pyramid. Number 7 is a symbol of the Great Law of Creation, “As Above, So Below.”

Tone 7 offers a Reflection of all that is, and all that is not. We are measured for the return of Divine Justice. We aren’t measured by the world standards of success, but by the effort of a Divine Intention.

6 Star / LAMAT – Vision Quest: Day 6 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 6 is Flow and Momentum through a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement.

Tone 6 completes 4 days of Sacred Ceremony that was the Human Vision Quest. Tones 3, 4, 5, and 6 is the Climb, our Movement by Sacred Intention. We chose to Dream of a Divine Human Being living in the world.

We are Half Here as the Vigilant Observer of our Unconscious Thoughts. A Vision is the quest of a Vision Quest. Our Intention was to SEE all the Divine and Supernatural Gifts of Human Beings.

We’ve seen Every Breath is a Sacred Exchange between Human and the Creator. As long as we are breathing, we are sharing the Truth “I Am.” Through the Fire within we share the Truth “I Know.”

Star/LAMAT is the Day Sign that identifies Human Beings as the Seed Grown to Maturity. We are made of Stars. We are even bio-luminescent. Human shines. Our Spark of Consciousness emanates our Living Light. We take in Light through Living Foods and our Light shines brighter when Human thoughts are turned to prayer and meditation. We are a Personification of Love that Shines from a physical body. So does Mother Earth shine within from the Fire at her Core.

Star/LAMAT is a day of “pure luck” for thinking. Whatever we FOCUS on will be Multiplied to Abundance. We are a “Source of Light” connected to a Divine “Way Station of Power.” LAMAT is a Symbol of Venus as the Morning and Evening Star. Divine Human Beings live in 2 Places, Heaven and Earth. LAMAT identifies Human as the Personification of Light.

5 Deer / MANIK – Vision Quest: Day 5 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 is an Empowerment of Spirit. 5 is the Center of the Cube, representing a Central Force that manages all our Resources, Discerns the Application, and Engages them into Service.

On Tone 5 we take an inventory and devise a strategy. We are Empowered by seeing the Ways and the Means.

Deer/MANIK is the bringer of Spiritual Tools. The Deer is associated with the Stability of 4, with a foot planted in each direction. We are trying to stabilize the chaos of a Dream of Major Life Change.

The Deer is said to have a Spiritual Tool for every Human limitation. There is a Divine Provision for every failure. The Deer’s means of self preservation is Vigilant Consciousness. (We’re Dreaming our Unconscious Thoughts.)

Deer upholds the Pillars of Creation with one foot planted in each of the 4 directions. Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest and shaman. The priest carries out the Sacred Ceremonies on behalf of the Whole, as they are marked by the calendars.

The Deer stands silently in its own Truth. Deer doesn’t have to defend it’s Truth or explain why it was Chosen. The priest attends all the Divine Altars, serving as a Symbol “to Remember.”

4 Transformer / CIMI – Vision Quest: Day 4 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Transformer / CIMI

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 brings the Stability to stand on our Intention To Be. 4 reflects the symbol of the cube, the most stable of all forms. The parameters of dimension define an area and an orientation for an experience of the height, depth, and breadth of our Self.

On Tone 4 we establish our own parameters and the “rules of our game.”

Transformer/CIMI is the Sign of Major Life Change. The glyph illustrates Death as a symbol of Change. Something always dies for something new to be born. An old Way dies when a new Life is born.

Our Major Life Change is the Newborn Dream of Divine Human Beings. We could remember the chaos in the household when Human brings a baby home, especially the Firstborn.

CIMI reminds us that Chaos is the Evidence of a Major Transition of Life in progress. All the pieces and parts are up in the Air waiting to land in a Better, Divine Place. CIMI reminds us that the Chaos is NOT the change, but only the passage between one Way to Another. Chaos is Human’s greatest challenge of discernment and holds the greatest need for Remembering “this is only the chaos” of something Divine coming to Life.
