The Trecena of Crocodile / IMIX – Bonding with the Mother


Altars and Shrines – Expressions of Mysteries Within

This cycle of Time holds the same purpose as our Time in the womb. We live many lifetimes in one. We found a womb outside in the arms that shared the fundamental provisions for life.

When we can’t see the truth of our Own Story, a Human mind of duality, can see it if it “belongs to someone else.” Everything we see about another Human Being is a Truth about our SELF. Looking for LOVE in everyone, we Create the same Beauty in our Self.

The Scion was created to See the Scion in the whole. We’re created as the Personification of the Supreme Creator.

To reach beyond our own experience, we can use the Truth of Mother Earth. She’s one and the same demonstration of EVERY Mother’s Truth of Love. Doubts and fear are the reason we live contrary to a Divine Nature.

1 IMIX is the beginning  of a brand new life. We can watch  it grow to hold its place in Time.

The Elders taught us to build shrines to mark Our Time and Place on the Spiritual Grid. I shared the sacred ceremony of anchoring of a Sound Chamber, built from the vision  of Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow. The chambers were oracles for sound, constructed like a womb surrounded by Earth. A portal to the Up Above drew the smoke from the Sacred Fires burned within.

Inside we were grasped by the FEELING of Sound. One of the Elder Moon Mothers performed a sacred ritual inside to “sweep our path clear” to the Fire at the center. One by one she went around the room. You could FEEL the Truth from the Sound.

They magnified the Sound of our Prayers as an Offering to the Heart of the Mother. We amplify our own Spiritual Experience of Divine Communion through the practice of rituals and sacred ceremonies.

Anchoring the Sound Chamber was the Divine Initiation for a Time, Place, and the Name for an Oracle of Sound. As the crow flies, from the center in Skiatook, Oklahoma, we were sent in pairs to the 4 directions. We were directed to find a place 200 miles from the center. A chosen Sister and I carried the shrine to the West.

1 Crocodile / IMIX – Dawn of a New Awakening: Day 1 of 13


1 Crocodile/IMIX

Greetings Beloved Kin,

The next 13 days…

1 Crocodile/IMIX is the Dawn of a New Awakening. 

The Highest Light of the One revealed the Transformation. We were changed by Truth about our Self. It was tangible, a Truth we could grasp to Hold – like a compass, the True North for our next Journey through Time.

New  Beginnings can be a little scary. At least, I know the change I’ve seen, yet a part of me fears I’ll forget and return to old ways. Yet, the way seemed so crystal clear. Is the Truth good enough to last? Now a new life depends on it for the Higher Dream shared from Above.

The Tzolk’in turns clockwise and the Cholq’ij, the K’iche Calendar of Life in the South turns counter-clockwise. The Winds of the North and South create the double helix of rising smoke. The Mayan calendars share the same Human Calendar, and the Destiny Kin are the same for the Whole.

In the North, we lean toward the Truth of the Intellect, and we learn from seeing what others do. We learn Truth through the ways of Right Relationship. (We haven’t done so well, applying Human’s Consciousness to the Highest Matters of Life, while we’re genius at technology.)

In the South they were Born Knowing through the Heart. In the forest, they saw a completely different view of life, close up to everything. The Grandfather trees must have been known as the way through. If you were lost, one tree could mark the way home. The tree could be seen and known as a Divine Salvation – and a Light for the Way. They FELT the truth from the beginning. Time and Place makes a difference to our perception of an experience.

Heat rises. Fires below, create the chaos of Love in the Up Above. All truth comes from the Heart.

The treasure lies where our heart is. That’s what “Matters.” NONE of us have been cast in our Highest Light by another Human Being. It’s not fair, when the “least of these” hold “the Heart” that has suffered. They hold the ways of Compassionate Love.

We know how discrimination feels… when we’re “left out.” The Primordial Mother and Divine Feminine of IMIX is passionate about the way wee feel. A Divine Mother is fiercely protective of the Human Seed and Our Time and Place. We’re born again with a new passion for the whole.

Tone 1 begins with the Light of Divine Inspiration. Something is burning in our heart and it’s wise to Listen and Think – without saying a word. We know the best answer lies within. It’s OKAY if it takes a little bit of Time to know Our Way.

Crocodile/IMIX is simply “the beginning” for all things. A Gift from the Sun is our first Light. At every “beginning” a Flash of Light is shared from K’inich Ahau – the face at the center of the Ollin symbol, the brightest Light of the Sun. IMIX marks a First  Light of Knowing, there’s something new about who we are. We can see a different Truth at the end, by the First Light of the Way, the last Light we knew raised for one Flash, a Spark to Remember the Mystery that will be revealed at every ending.

We become the Scion when all our Sacred Ways and the traditions of Time and Place are ALL declared worthy to stand. The Highest Truth in every heart can be woven together to shine like the all-in-one, when we see Beauty and ALL the Ways passed down as a Divine Inheritance.

9 Wisdom / CIB – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 9 of 13



9 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

“Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.” ~Cherokee Sacred Calendar

Peak Tone 9 raises an Intention of Patience to see the Big Picture. To see the Whole Truth, it must be framed within the context of the Whole Experience.

Tone 9 is all about completing the Truth of an Experience. We have to step back. It’s COMMON when we are CONSCIOUSLY creating a thing of Beauty. When I was younger and my sister and I completed crafts together, we would walk out of the room just to walk back in for another “first impression” of our Divine Genius.

Though, Human’s way by limitation of our Ego, we don’t follow the inclination, if there’s something we don’t want to see. To raise the Creator’s Highest Dream of Love to Light, we have to see it all – the darkness and the light. It’s the burden that makes us Divine to the One Above. We take the Truth to Heart. It’s our Choice to see the HIghest Hopes of another. When we Feel, we Know. Love is ALWAYS created through the Understanding of a Compassionate Heart, it’s the Way of the Divine Mother that EVERYONE was intended to know. We create her. She’s the opposite reflection we imagined for our Human mother’s every limitation.

Every transformation is based on the Truth we found at the Ascension of Light that came before. We were guided by Eagle/MEN to look to the future and to lean in to the Truth we learn along the way. We were Raised by an Intermediary to see our Highest Hopes and our Highest Aspirations. The Star/LAMAT trecena is Human’s climb to prove the Wisdom of the Experience. A Divine Agency stands beside us with the Light of Truth to see all the progress we’ve made. That’s what Matters to the One Above. In Harmony and Equity, a Heart that reaches to see the Light from Both Sides will manifest the end of Right Relationship.

9 Wisdom/CIB guides us to see the Journey all the way through to the end that is intended by the One Above. 9 is the symbol of the Holy, Holy, Holy – the Sacrifice we are willing to pay for the Wisdom of the Truth. 9 is the symbol of a Trinity of Trinities, multiplying the Light 3 x 3. The Whole Investment of 9, creates the 1 Above.

On CIB we’re guided by the Wisdom of the Old Ones.  The Legion of Light that serves from Above know Human ways. They walked this way before. Every Time and Place given a Beginning and an End, mattered to Our Life. CIB reminds us that a body of knowledge doesn’t mean a thing until we APPLY the Truth we Know. The Truth never goes away. Truth speaks for itself in the end.

8 Eagle / MEN – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 8 of 13



8 Eagle / MEN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

8 Eagle/MEN marks the day of a Divine Communion. We are raised on Eagle’s wings to catch the glimpse of our Divine Future. We will see the Light that shines at the end, and the Truth that will carry us like the Wind beneath our wings. We’ll KNOW a Dream lies within our grasp.

Tone 7 completed the zenith hour of Light to See the Truth. We are always transformed by the Truth we realize from the Unknown. We love Knowing and figuring out the Truth as much as we Love Loving. We WANT to Understand.

Eagle/MEN is the Intermediary that teaches us to lean into the Truth that’s REAL ABOVE. We could change the cast and characters tomorrow, from the Truth we know today. The Truth of Love is Eternal. Love is our perennial way, an imperishable spark in the Human Seed. Our prayers were answered from the beginning, in the Seed. We only have to choose to follow Our Own Instructions for the higher choice to reach the higher end – the Higher Dream of Beauty from Above.

Eagle/MEN raises our Highest Hopes and our Highest Aspirations through the Element of Water that holds our Spirit. MEN offers the clear view from Above to the End without any obstacles on our direct path.

The Gift the Eagle shares is the Vision to See the Future. The Eagle reminds us to Look for our Self, while we’re up in the Air in the closest proximity to the Creator’s thoughts. We don’t have to see all the details, only a speck of our Highest Hope. In Holy Communion with the One Above, we’ll know the Creator has the clear image that’s on our mind. A Creator of Divine Genius can’t help but leave its own Impression of Beauty for the Higher Love we reach to know.

October 10, 2021: Master Number 10/10
Number 10 is the symbol of Divine Manifestation, the result of a Whole Investment from the Lower Place. Through the Element of Water, we’ll know we’ve Offered our Heart to the One. Dog/OC holds Position 10, guiding the Truth of Unconditional Love. When we are Conscious of repeating numbers, their meanings are magnified in our subconscious thoughts. Like every time humans see things more than once, it leads to the thought of the Divine Possibility of 3. In the Light of Holy Communion, we can see that Divine Possibilities are the Truth… and it leaves twice the impression.

7 Jaguar / IX – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 7 of 13



7 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 7 completes the climb to the Peak of Human’s Divine Discernment. At the “top of a pyramid” we see the Truth it 4 directions… the Light of our First Inspiration, a Matter of Relationship that set us on a Course to the darkness of the Unknown.

7 Jaguar/IX is the end of our Last Climb to the Highest Truth we can Know this Time around. The trecena of Star/LAMAT is the Ascension of the Light of Our Star for all the Truth we’ve created from a Higher Perspective of our own Life. With the help of the Totem Rabbit, our Highest Hopes and Highest Aspirations are being Multiplied to Abundance. We’ll break out of an old shell, to become a New Seed of our True Self that was written deeply within.

Did you remember, this is the “luckiest cycle” to manifest our Dreams? All we had to do was to focus on our Dream, Loving the “object of our affection.” If you see a Spark of something you’d Love in the future, the Answer to your prayer is within grasp. We only have to See to Claim the Truth we Imagine, when the Reason is a Divine End.

Number 7 is the symbol of Human’s Power to create our own Reality. The Great Law of Creation is “As Above, So Below.” It means we can create reality from any realm of Consciousness, and it will be balanced in all others. We create the cast, characters and scenario for every Life Experience. When we SEE the Truth, we can reach for the Perspective of the Higher One. We can always imagine what a Higher Way of Seeing this could be. Isn’t that the Truth? We can always imagine SOME reasonable human reason people do what they do, and  UNDERSTAND – EVEN when it’s monkey business, like forgetting to LOOK to SEE the Truth.

On Tone 7 the Intention is Reflection to see “all that is” and “all that  is not.” The  Wisdom we would know by Divine Design is that “all that is not” is only “all that we’ve yet to imagine could be true.” The ONLY TRUTH we ever HAVE to LEARN is that when we Look we will See. Love is Easy when the Truth is a CHOICE to See, a CHOICE to Feel. The future is in our Hands – what we choose to look for Above, will shine its Truth Below.

Kneeling at the altar in humility for all our human limitations we are born into the Sanctuary of Spirit, through Reed/BEN.  When the flesh is burned away, we are drawn through the “hollow bone” into the Sanctuary of Spirit. Jaguar/IX holds the Divine Consciousness of a Divine place that’s REAL for ALL Time. IX shares the highest senses for discernment of Spirit. IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, with gifts to see the Unseen. Through eyes of Spirit we conceive Signs and Symbols, and the allegories of Love written in the Beauty of Mother Earth. Spirit is the Real Truth of our Identity.

6 Reed / BEN – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 6 of 13



6 Reed / BEN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Peak Tone 6 empowers us with the Divine Force of Momentum. The Intention is Flow. By Divine Law an object in motion tends to stay in motion. When we apply rhythm and a pattern to movement, the way creates a force of exponential power.

Our Common thought for Creation in the 6th Hour of Light is realizing Our Best Way. In the beginning, we saw “the work” and how we would approach the task to complete an end. Like stuffing envelopes, we found the fastest way, making the best use of human resources. It’s 11AM by Mayan time, an hour before we  break for lunch.

By Divine Design, we’re running low on human energy. We stop for a minute to see where we are. We see a higher end, by the “best practices” we put into motion while we were busy creating. Tone 6 represents the second wind, when we see the Truth of Higher Possibilities. We see the possibility we didn’t see before. Tone 6 is compared to the performance of a great athlete who makes a whole investment of ALL the resources and energy at hand.

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home – a Divine Perspective for the Creation of Belonging. By Divine Design, we straighten up and fly right for the sake of the children. BEN is the sense of Responsibility and Integrity to walk the walk. When we are fully-invested to follow our unknown journey to Love, we’ll reach  the Truth at the end.

The  Creation has  taken on a life of its own now. There’s no turning back to the beginning, until we reach the end of knowing what we were intended to learn by the Experience we’ve already chosen. Though, the Monkey would tell us, we can always choose again. The Truth is, the Time WILL come again. So,  it’s now, or we can wait to face the truth the next time it comes around. NOW, are you afraid to know the Truth?

Reed is the “hollow bone” that is an Open Channel to Spirit. Reed connects the Circle of Life for ALL Time in the Sanctuary of a Divine Pack. When the Above and Below, See and Acknowledge the Truth of One Another – we become the 13th Tribe, the Scion  that is the Truth Above and Below.

Holding the Element of Fire, BEN burns the flesh away. The Only way to forge the ties that bind is for the flesh of the ego to be burned away. There is a burning in our heart to belong, and to know the sanctuary where there is Salvation from the Life or Death matters of Love. BEN sits a the head of the table where EVERYONE has a place. BEN guides us to hold the Highest Expectations of our Self, though, wholly in the Light of the Power Above.

We claim the Power for Creation on our Knees, when we let our own Truth go, and  turn to the ONLY ONE who  COULD know the Highest Means and Way.

5 Road / EB – Reminder from 4 Monkey/CHUEN



5 Road / EB

Greetings Beloved Kin,

As long as we’re gathering tools…

The trickster Monkey/CHUEN left a parting thought behind this morning to share a Spiritual Tool for “the work.”

On Road/EB, we’re in the trenches of Earth together. It IS a Hard Road for EVERYONE. NO ONE makes it through without facing the everyday matters of Life and Death.

The Journey of Human’s Destiny is ALL about what we can Create before the end. At least, that’s the Human experience of “Time that ends.”

Our Spirit was given Time to cross the threshold to “Time that is forever.”

Today might FEEL like it will FOREVER be THIS WAY, but that’s NOT the Truth.

5 Road / EB – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 5 of 13



5 Road / EB

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 5 raises the Intention of Empowerment. Tone 5 relates to a central organizing Force that inventories resources for application. In the 5th hour of creation, we gather the tools for the work to begin. We’ve already seen the colors to choose the paint, or the best ingredients for the recipe.

This is a day to take stock of our self, to raise the Truth “I Can.” Sometimes we need to see that Divine Justice is True. We need to be reminded that we are One. On Road/EB we can all share a Common Thought to raise the Truth of who we are.

Road/EB is also known as Human, representing Human’s Road to Destiny. Human’s destiny is the Journey through Time. We have to see things more than once for the Truth to register. Anything can happen once. When it happens twice, we look for it to happen again… by Divine Design.

A “Road” is written in our mind. The glyph illustrates the Road on a human head. On days guided by EB, a Choice is ours to make. EB connects Humanity through common thoughts.

Road/EB marks a turning point – a crossroad that relates to the Whole. Residing in the South, EB is an experience with the Intention of Right Relationship. The Element of Earth relates to an experience in our everyday life.

We are meant to see the Truth in a tangible way.

4 Monkey / CHUEN – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 4 of 13



4 Monkey / CHUEN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 4 raises the Intention of Stability. Love turns Human thoughts to the future. Love isn’t “True” until it’s still here tomorrow.

Like the Dog, when the treasure is found, we never forget the Time or Place. Love is Faithful and Loyal to the end. We carry all the Light of our Love back to the stars. Monkey/CHUEN is the Dog’s best friend, that saw the Beauty of Love. Seeing how the Truth never ends, CHUEN is the Genius with the sense to create Beauty that will multiply itself to the Overflow.

Tone 4 raises the pillars of Truth for Love to Stand. We can build the foundation from our side for every creation. A Cause for Love will complete the Effect. Tone 4 is related to the cube, an area defined by its parameters. We are creating a Body of Thought. When we define a boundary of thoughts, our unconscious thoughts will lean toward the “rules of the game.”

Monkey/CHUEN helps us see “the work” of creation like a game. Knowing the Truth of Unconditional Love, there are no real consequences to the “winners” or “losers” – only in our mind. CHUEN knows ways around the Ego and our Human emotions. We don’t HAVE to cry when we fall down, when it’s all for the joy of an adventure. The way the Monkey sees it, those will be the highlights of the story.

The REALLY cool thing about the Power of Creation is that we can pretend ANYTHING. The point that Monkey makes is, since all things are created from our imagination, why not make it fun. Does everything HAVE to be hard? We could CHOOSE to ask for an easy, magic way, instead of always asking to mount another hurdle. We choose a mountain or a molehill. (The truth is, we prefer to climb mountains.) BE A MASTER mountain-climber, with the most innovative gear – like wings to fly back if you fall. It’s YOUR story. It doesn’t have to be boring. And, it’s okay to be DIFFERENT.

CHUEN is the Scion after our Human emotions are healed by the Truth of Love. We like to let go and be our Self, without any worries what silly human trick we might reveal lies under the surface. Where there’s Love we stand on the substance of Belonging. We weren’t meant to work all the time. Play is just as important for the Divine Inspiration in communion with the One. A Supreme Creator conceived laughter and joy. What Dream of Life would be beautiful without it. It was the First way we knew how to create.

3 Dog / OC – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 3 of 13



3 Dog / OC

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 3 raises the Intention of Movement. We bring a new vibration to life. The Reason we are moved sets the Tone and Frequency from the Beginning to the End. When we share the Intention of our Creation or take the first step, the Dream will have a story and a life of its own.

By Divine Design, every Dream is inspired by Love. Every Dream comes with a Light revealed at the end, from one side or another. It’s Divine Genius when we create a Dream for the Whole.

Dog/OC is the Maya’s Highest Archetype of Unconditional Love. If you want to see how Unconditional Love looks and feels, you only have to watch a Dog. The Dog claimed the name of “man’s best friend”  for its Central Characteristic of faithfulness and loyalty. The Dog is a pack animal, loving all around.

The Dog doesn’t have to force a way. It brings back a piece of every treasure and leaves the scent of the trail. Dog’s happiness is contagious, and where the Dog goes, everyone is invited to belong.

The Dog is the Master of Love that leads us. The Dog’s best friend is Monkey/CHUEN. Together they hold positions 10 and 11,  the places side-by-side that represent the top of the pyramid. 10 is the symbol of a “whole investment” from the lower place that manifests the Higher One. 11 is the Master Number that represents the Divine Source of Light for the Creation of Beauty. Between the 2, the Dog Loves, and the Monkey is the Witness who turns the Beauty of Love into a Masterpiece of Creation.

When Love is the Reason, we will always manifest a Creation of Beauty. The Dog and the Monkey raise our Consciousness of the Beauty of Life, the Inspiration for a Dream for Life. The Dog Loves the treasure hunt. The  Monkey Loves the Dog’s Expression when the Mystery is revealed at the end.
