The First 8 Monkey/CHUEN of this Journal: October 18, 2015

Greetings Kin,

8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’aatz) – First 8 B’aatz I painted.

I wanted to share the journal from October 18, 2015, the day I made a commitment to Count the Days. I had been calling myself a daykeeper since 2002 without a Dedicated Practice. I looked at the Tzolk’in every day for some synchronicity. That was as far as I looked.

I had written a few posts from the calendar on the blog, and thought it would be a tool for organization. Then one day, I mentioned the 21-day Gratitude Ceremony in a post. I thought, why talk about it, if you aren’t going to do it. I committed to 21 days. “What had I done? What would I even have to write tomorrow?”

Don’t hold me to any Wisdom about the Maya from 2015. I guess it was good I picked a narrow topic. I couldn’t even Sign my Name.

On that 8 B’aatz I realized I never made a real commitment. I Initiated myself. As my Offering, I made a commitment to 260 journals and 260 glyphs, one for every day.

Material changes have followed and I’m still following that path to another Dream. I could never measure the value of a worldly return to the Consciousness to see all the Blessings that were Always there and are Eternal.

I couldn’t have done it without YOU. I’m grateful to Celebrate the Day it began with you.
The Sun is shining, the Mother Finch is singing her song to it, and I placed my Love there. The Signs and Symbols will rise with tomorrow’s Sun, the beginning of our New Life on Earth.

in lak’ech, Debra  – HAPPY NEW LIFE

Galactic Tone 8: Justice – Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh ll evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in statement, “as above, so below”. The energy of 8 organizes all levels of creation.

Monkey/Chuen/B’atz’: Known to the maya as the weaver of time – Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality.

HAPPY MAYA NEW YEAR! (Waqxaqui (8) B’atz)

The K’iche’ Maya of highland Guatemala honor this day, 8 B’atz’ (Chuen/Monkey) as the beginning of the 260-day cycle of the Tzolk’in calendar. This is a special day when the Maya community joins to celebrate with Fire Ceremonies of gratitude and is the day of initiation for Shaman and Mayan Daykeepers.

When Maya people celebrate the Tzolkin new year, they are celebrating that the creation of the world has been fulfilled and that a new cycle of 260 days begins. The ceremony includes calling all of the 260 days of the Tzolkin/Cholq’ij calendar. Monkey is the first one called in during the Count of Days in Guatemalan Mayan fire ceremonies because he signifies the beginning of time.

These ancient sacred ceremonies are a time of purification, blessing and celebration now recognized and honored by Daykeepers throughout the world as well as the traditional Maya. Among the practices of a Daykeeper is to welcome the inspiration of a new Sun, and to send a message of love forward on the Sun in lak’ech to the next Daykeepers waiting for the dawn.

To all my relations, I am grateful for honored traditions brought forward from our ancestors that bring meaning and connection to our lives. I am grateful for every new beginning and for the opportunity it brings to be made new once again and to clear a way for a fresh path forward.

Most of all, I am grateful to hold a sacred space with those that share the path of beauty that we may all move forward in harmony and in the spirit of lak’ech – “I am another yourself.”

Today brings an opportunity join in a celebration in harmony with all that is. As this new day dawns, I send my love around to you on the Sun.

12 Offering/MULUC – Womb of Re-Creation Day 12

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Offering/MULUC

12 Offering/MULUC

Greetings Kin,

True understanding can be seen as that moment when head knowledge moves to the heart. It’s a moment when we comprehend the implications of what we have learned to be true. Tone 12 brings us the gift for retrospection. We have a spiritual rear-view mirror that presents us with an accurate reflection. Through a gift of discernment we can experience a “knowing” of what is true.

Muluc symbolizes the Holiness and trans-formative properties that can be held by water.  Just as our Spirit is suspended in the fluid of our body, so can Spirit be held in the presence of all water.  Masaru Emoto is famous for his research that demonstrated that conscious thought was capable to change the molecular structure of water.

Muluc symbolizes water everywhere from the cosmos to our tears. We are made of Holy Water that responds to and is changed by the conscious thoughts we hold. The glyph reminds us that a single drop has the power to carry waves of Spirit out from its center.

Our lives are in a continual process of life and death transformation. We die to the old as we are transformed into the new. CIMI signals a cycle of major life change and brings with it the spiritual support, strength and endurance to carry us through.

13 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Divine Correspondence

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” – Lao Tzu

13 Serpent/CHICCHAN

13 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

On Galactic Tone 13 we arrive at a new vista. From the new perspective of our ascension Serpent/CHICCHAN ignites us by revealing the success of our latest efforts.

In the day-to-day our changes may seem like minor adjustments, though the consistency of our incremental movements forward has far more impact on the road to our destiny than any occasional monumental effort.

Like watching children grow, the closer one is to the action the more difficult it is to see the changes as they are happening. We place significance on our milestones because they reveal the evidence of transformation. 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN marks such a milestone.

12 Seed/KAN – Divine Correspondence

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

12 Seed/KAN

12 Seed/KAN

Tone 12 brings us to a new understanding. Seed/KAN helps lead us to a greater awareness of who we are. The Cherokee calendar describes the sign of the Dragon as helping us to see with greater clarity.

Within every seed is encoded the design for creation. The important distinction is that we are dynamic creations in a continuing process of evolution. Seed/KAN lays the foundation for our human potential that may be both realized and exceeded by our own Spiritual intentions.

TODAY is a GREEN DAY that magnifies what you focus on.
(Sorry folks, yesterday wasn’t the Green Day. Today is KIN 64.)
