12 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Vision Quest: Day 12

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: CREATING A LIFE IN SPIRIT

12 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 raises the Intention of Understanding. Disassociated experiences are all drawn together into a new and meaningful whole. If we keep on tracking our thoughts, we’ll see that we already held the Truth. Only, the same Truth was revealed in many different ways.

The Intention of the Jaguar’s journey was to lead us to the Light that shines invisibly for the Whole. 12 is the symbol of Humanity, defining Human Life as the 2nd Consciousness in the lower place, living in Communion with the 1 in the higher place. 12 represents Human’s potential To Be the 13, when the 2 in the lower place are united as 1 Trinity.

12 symbolizes Human’s gift of Divine Discernment, when we Turn to the Highest Provision of Love that we can imagine. It’s hard to imagine anything Higher than One that would Love without any conditions. To maintain the Balance of Harmony and Equity, a Human Being had to be given something of equal value for the Sacred Exchange.

Forgiveness is Human’s gift of Salvation to the Whole. A Supreme Creator that Dreamed of our Divine Design, never saw a fault. Human’s gift of Forgiveness is made equal by our Human limitations. Forgiveness represents a Conscious Choice to Love, because we did see fault in “the other.” KAN is the “Spark of CHICCHAN” within the Seed that holds the Light to “see clearly.” CHICCHAN reveals the same Truth under the brightest light.

Forgiveness is our OWN Salvation to see clearly. Only through Forgiveness do we see the Truth about our self, “we saw fault in another” when we were intending to look for Love. Looking within, we know the reason why. When we forget, we can’t see what we’re doing.

We can hold the Inner Strength to forgive when we conceive the Truth that Being Human means that sometimes we will forget all about Love, even though it’s our Highest Dream. It tends to happen when we’re clawing for our own Higher Ground, and we see someone else standing in the way of our own Peace of Mind. A Savior said it best, “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do.” It’s our own Dream that others will forgive when we’ve done something without thinking it through. We didn’t MEAN to. When we forgive, we support the Truth that someone else “wants to be.”

CHICCHAN is a Higher Power of Love who will carry out the Divine Provision for every Human limitation. CHICCHAN is the symbol of “lightning in the blood” the Maya call the Sixth Sense of the Heart. One Above knows the Passion for a Dream, and when we’re unable to make a Choice we need to make for our Self, CHICCHAN will strike like a Clarion Call. CHICCHAN is the Sense of Knowing that is the Divine Source of all our Gifts of Spirit.

12 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Vision Quest: Day 12

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX – WALKING IN BALANCE

12 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

“Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. Serpent lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.” – Cherokee calendar

Seed/KAN was the Spark of Divine Power as the Consciousness of Knowing. KAN symbolizes the Force of the Dragon within. Serpent/CHICCHAN is the symbol of the Divine Source of Human’s “lightning in the blood” that the Maya call the Sixth Sense of the Heart.

Serpent/CHICCHAN resides in the East with the Element of Fire to transmute matter from one form into another. CHICCHAN is a Force Above with the Power to Call our Attention to a Divine Communion of Spirit. CHICCHAN marks the Truth of Divine Discernment through our Feelings.

The Serpent Feels its way through the vibrations of movement on Mother Earth. The Snake sees by Feeling. To Remember the Wisdom of the Truth we have to Feel it. CHICCHAN guides us to pay attention to our own gut instincts. On CHICCHAN our Spiritual Gifts are awakened like the Kundalini energy that travels up the spine to the crown of the head.

Our Spiritual Gifts were given in harmony and equity from the beginning. We are not trying to receive the supernatural gifts of Spirit. The challenge to overcome is to see what has always been working perfectly and to UNDERSTAND what it means.

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Human Understanding. This is a day when disassociated pieces and parts of our experience are all drawn together into a new and meaningful whole. 12 is a symbol of Humanity, and Serpent CHICCHAN is our connection within to a Power Above.

The Jaguar led a Vision Quest for Light of New Spiritual Wisdom. CHICCHAN holds the Force to manifest a Spiritual Experience that combines a Divine Revelation with Truth that can be Felt and Known to Human, body and soul. CHICCHAN awakens our Spiritual Senses. The Serpent will guide us to shed our skin to Feel what our Heart needs to Know.

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

21 Days of Gratitude, Day 4 – Happy Maya New Year!

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)

Wajxaqib’, 8 B’atz’/Chuen/Monkey

Wajxaqib’, 8 B’atz’/Chuen/Monkey

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.

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.

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.
