9 Wind / IK – Vision Quest: Day 9 of 13

9 Wind / IK

9 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)
Published: February 19, 2021

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the bigger picture. When a work is “finished” we stand back to take it in.

Beyond the details we can see the Truth of Cause and Effect. We can’t hold an intention to Love without creating Beauty inside and out. There is said to be potential suffering to bear for lack of insight if we fail to take this step. Whether we see success or failure, we grow stronger through the experience.

Wind/IK represents the Heart of Sky, Huracan. IK is the Whirlwind of Life created from a Divine Breath. The Element of Air represents our thoughts, consciousness, and the faculties of the mind. The Wind carries the Voice of the Creator. The Elders say to Listen to the Wind when it catches your attention.

The Wind/IK glyph illustrates the “T” portal that is carved in stone. The purpose was to magnify the Sound of the Wind and to direct vision to a pre-determined location. The “T” represents the Tree of Life. “Te” is a sacred word to the Maya as the Sound of the first breath of Creation. On days led by IK the Creator can share the Truth of a Divine Meaning and Purpose for every creation that intends the Highest Good for the Whole.

8 Crocodile / IMIX – Drawn by Love

Mother and Child, Giclee Print Created by J. Kirk Richards

Greetings Beloved Kin,
It looks like a brand new world, and once again, I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve been spinning in the circles of defending personal choices, and reviewing the facts over and again.

I’m finding inspiration by looking again upside down and backwards and opposite ends of the scale. We’re drawn by Love to the Dream of our Heart’s Desire. IMIX’s most important question is – “would you love it?” It makes sense. I never wished for a tolerable life. I dreamed that Love balances all things. We have to experience it from one end to the other to be reunited in the middle. It’s good when you don’t have a clue what tomorrow could bring. It means you don’t have any expectations except to know it’s a brand new start.

Don’t try to be wise. Just don’t choose anything you don’t love the idea. Be a baby. Spit it out. 🙂

love, in lak’ech,

8 Crocodile / IMIX – Journey of Spirit: Day 8 of 13

The Beginning 2022, DMalmos 01/16/2022 (Paint Pens & Digital Effects)

Greetings Beloved Kin,
The higher Intention of the 1st uinal is Unity. The Jaguar/IX is the symbol of the Mother who offers the nourishment to grow through the darkness to the Light. Life isn’t always what it seems when there’s a higher meaning and purpose that only Time can tell. The Aztec calendar notes that IX is governed by Quetzalcoatl/Kulkulkan, the Feathered Serpent. The primordial Mother offered a place to live and belong. IX is the guardian of our Spirit that offers a reason to be.

Tones 8 through 13 are the steps of transformation carried out from Above. Every leap of Faith is an Offering to the Higher One. Tone 8 reflects the Intention of Divine Justice. Justice is carried out by a Universal Law of Cause and Effect. We were created as a Divine Offering of Light to the world below. We complete a Sacred Exchange through the Heart that chooses to make a sacrifice for Love in the future.

It takes Time to see a Creation of Spirit manifested in a world of physicality. The first step is a Light we created for our future. We reached for the Light to manifest a new life. We reached to know Truth Unseen that could lead a new way. The Feathered Serpent is a Divine Light that makes itself known through the “lightning in our blood.” Human’s mind of reason depends on the first 5 senses of physicality. Quetzalcoatl/Kulkulkan holds the Power of CHICCHAN, the 6th Sense of Knowing through the Heart. Life begins with a question, “Who am I.” One question leads to another, “Who will I be.”

Those are the 2 questions that carry on from the beginning to the end. They reflect the Beauty of every Sunrise. We asked to see the Signs for the future. From Above we can see the proof by the human footsteps we left behind. When we are willing to follow, our Spirit will lead the way.  There is a Time for everything and a Dream with our name on it.

love, in lak’ech,

7 Sun / AHAU – Vision Quest: Day 7 of 13


Published: 02/17/2021


7 Sun / AHAU

Greetings Kin,

On Peak Tone 7 we reach the Balance at the top of the pyramid. The Intention of Tone 7 is Reflection from the Holy of Holies where we can see the Truth of “all that is” and “all that is not.” The Number 7 reflects the Great Law of Creation, “As Above, So Below.” Tone 7 reflects the Power to create our own Reality.

Our experience of Reality is an expression of what we believe. What we believe is only a reflection of we think is “all that is.” We do see “all that is.” We don’t know the whole truth of an experience until it happens to us. We’ve seen how one experience can turn out in an entirely different way for someone else. While we can believe that a Promise is True, we can still believe we could be the one exception to the rule.

The Maya saw the top of the pyramid as Human’s highest effort to reach the Light Above. Above the canopy was a vision from Above that was always waiting there that sheds a whole new light on the story. From Above they could see all the paths that were followed to the same place. The Maya believed there was always Higher Ground.

From the top of the pyramid, they saw the Reflection the Jaguar saw on the surface of the water. There was a light of Beauty shining above, somewhere beyond the trees. The Peak of our Climb is a Reflection on the Truth of Love for the final leap of Faith through the threshold to the Higher Light Above.

The Jaguar/IX trecena is our first climb in the darkness of Human’s application of the Truth. Sun/AHAU is the Divine Father that was waiting for us at the Peak of our 1st climb. As it is in the beginning, we remember from the last ending, the Ascension of the Tzolk’in round on 13 Sun/AHAU.

Sun/AHAU shines the Light that raises the Truth from the shadows and the Truth that’s hidden in plain sight. The all-in-one at the end, promised to be with us through every climb. On 7 Sun/AHAU we will see what we CAN do with a Divine Creator by our side. 7 Sun/AHAU will reveal the Beauty that we can claim by an Intention to See. 13 Sun/AHAU will wait to reveal the Dream in the end, when a Divine One carries it the rest of the way.

With every encounter of Sun/AHAU we can expect a Revelation of Light. Sun/AHAU is the symbol of a Supreme Creator, human’s source of Light, Life, and Happiness. AHAU is a Master of Every Thing, a warrior of Light that knows ALL the Truth Above. Sun/AHAU is the Divine Masculine, the Reflection of what every Divine Father should be.

We looked up to the one with all the muscles, the one who carries out the business of life. We see the Heart of the one that is always holding us. It takes longer to know a Light that comes and goes. When we were small we must have wondered at the “big world outside.” In Time we learn the Light always returned and in Truth, we were always on our Father’s mind. He was there, like he never went away. And, when he returned, his stories shined a light on the mystery that waited in our future.

Vision Quest: The Peak of the Climb

Who were we reaching to be?

What were we trying to prove? If Love has anything to do with our Dream, we don’t have to be someone else.  Proving we are enough has it’s place along the way. Though, the end from the beginning is investing the Time of our Life in being who we are.

Vision Quest – A Time to Rest

Dynamic Change – Time for Rest

I’m grateful for a Time when the best thing there is to do is to rest. Celebrating the sanctuary within is the blessing offered for every storm. When we consciously choose the Time as Sacred, we can learn the magic of Creation happens when we finally let go.

6 Storm / CAUAC – Vision Quest: Day 6 of 13

The Journal Before for After

6 Storm / CAUAC

6 Storm/CAUAC
Published: February 16, 2021

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 6 raises the Intention of Flow. A rhythm and pattern of Movement generates an Unseen Force of Momentum. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. On Tone 6 we can see a Higher End to our Dream.

In the 6th Hour of Light, through the Experience of Creation we saw a better way. With this “new system” in place we can accomplish more than we saw in the beginning.

The Peak Energy of Tone 6 is compared to a “great athlete.” We realize greater potential, and we want to see how far we can go. Movement changes when we engage all our faculties. It turns into an Expression of Art. If we can Master Forgiveness, we can save a lot of “processing time” and our Resource of Divine Genius can move on to Higher things. Tone 6 guides us to “let go.”

Let go and Forgive. Let go and just say “no.” Let go and choose what you Love. Live your Life. 6 Storm/CAUAC offers the sense of Unbridled Freedom through the Light of Unconditional Love.

Storm/CAUAC brings the Blessing of Living Water to our Spirit for a Renewal and Regeneration. Lightning breaks  molecules of Air apart, adding particles of Nitrogen, the building blocks for Life. CAUAC shares an enthusiasm for Life without any boundaries.

CAUAC brings the sense of Comfort in the Storm. Human’s Inherent/Divine thought when we see storms on the horizon is to run for the “shelter of home.” CAUAC reminds us of a Sanctuary of Love under the Authority of a Divine One Above. We will see how our Heart is always guided back to the Truth where we belong.

CAUAC resides in the West, the direction of the Unknown. CAUAC offers a Light that reveals the whole landscape all at once. CAUAC shines a light for a moment on the Divine Mysteries of Life – things we can’t see, yet they are right in front of our face. There is a Divine Truth as plain as day and when it reaches our Heart, we will know that our own Happiness is meant to be.

4 Earth / CABAN – The Truth Within

The Truth Within

Knowing the Truth in the world is an impossibility, when we only exist as a cast of characters. Home alone is the place I know everything that’s real, aside from an outside characterization that can’t see a dream behind closed doors. Time for waiting is good for the Truth to sink in – apart from everything in the world, it is well with my soul.

4 Earth / CABAN – Vision Quest: Day 4 of 13

Scarlet Sunrise Behind Balanced Rock, Garden Of The Gods City Park, Colorado Springs is a photograph by Bijan Pirnia which was uploaded on January 12th, 2014. Fine Art America (Wallpapers)

Every Sacred Ceremony carried out by Human Beings is an exercise of “blood, sweat, and tears.” We reach for something that WE can’t make happen. The Time we call for a Sacred Purpose will always have a Divine Effect. 

Peace of Mind is the foundation for Happiness. That’s the easiest way to learn “the other.”
