3 Storm / CAUAC – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 3 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

3 Storm / CAUAC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. Our Intention takes on the life of Vibration through movement or communication. Our Intentions of Unconditional Love generate the Highest Tone and Frequency. When we take action on Love we create a Song that calls lower vibrations into the Sympathy of Compassionate Love. We won’t create the same Melody, but our Song will carry the Harmony of the Creator’s Love.

Storm/CAUAC is a midwife that delivers Lightning to Mother Earth. A Storm always calls us Home. CAUAC holds the Gift of a Renewal and Regeneration. Our Own Truth is the nourishment that CAUAC brings in our hours of labor. Our Own Truth is the Lightning of our delivery.

“Lightning in the Blood” symbolizes the Sixth Sense to the Maya. “Lightning in the Blood” is a visual image of Light that runs through the Human body. The Greatest Light we are capable to receive is a Truth that we can stand on, a Truth WE Believe is aligned with the Creator’s Divine Truth. That Truth is Ours to Own.  When Truth is Our Own, like the Deer, we can stand in our own Truth. Like the Deer, it won’t matter what anyone else believes. The Lightning of our Truth will be the foundation we are willing to stand on.

The Truth lies in Tone 3, the Movement that Creates Time. With Time and Vigilant Consciousness of Our Own Truth, we will see that Love will always hold its integrity from the Beginning to the End. No matter what Human brings to Life, the Intention for the Beginning of the journey will always be the Promise at the end.

2 Flint / ETZNAB – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 2 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

The Earth/CABAN trecena is leading us to the Global Burner, 4 Sun/AHAU. There is a Global Burner for each Season. This one is special, marking the Day that Human Consciousness was born on Earth. Number 4 holds the Intention of Stability. All the Global Burners fall on Tone 4. Through the release, we stabilize the TRUTH that was intended by the Season.

Days leading up to a Global Burner compare to the contractions of Birth. Occurring at the Center kin of each Season, like every other cycle we climb, the half-way point is always a new Birth of Consciousness to the Purpose of the Season. We Release newfound Consciousness into the world around us. We are balanced by the EXPRESSION of Love that is being born.

We can expect to feel like we’re in the contractions of labor as we lead up to this 4 Sun/AHAU. LIKE the contractions of birth, the movements are out of our hands. Allow things to be out-of-hand. The Maya prepared for these days by Counting their Blessings, so they could Remember the Blessing that was on the way. On Global Burners, the Mayan priest builds the Sacred Fires that would draw the whole together. We are intended to be drawn together – as we Really Are. We will see How Important Humans were intended to be and the Light we were intended to bring – our Own.

On Tone 2, the Earth/CABAN trecena delivers the Truth we need to Know Now. Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality and the Discernment of a Divine Choice for Being. Through a Gift of Duality, Human is capable to comprehend through a provision of comparison. We can always know one thing by looking at another. Mother Earth gave us everything to See and Explore – to see what is Beautiful, and what is not.

Flint/ETZNAB symbolizes the Flint Knife that cuts to the Heart. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror that ALWAYS returns a reflection of the Truth. Both Flint and Obsidian are symbols of Fire and Transmutation. Flint strikes a spark of Fire. Obsidian is stone that is forged by Fire.

Signs from Mother Earth

Greetings Kin,

This Sign appeared while I was stacked up in Seattle traffic on the way to my class.

It was overcast and rainy and early accidents had the drive down to stops and starts. I wasn’t afraid of driving, but if I’d ever get there. I was deciding it didn’t matter when I looked up and saw what the Raccoon was saying, right in front of me.

A trickster Raccoon Mother had to nose in here to coax a smile.

love, in lak’ech, Debra

THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN

Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Earth/CABAN trecena.

 

1 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement and perpetual motion, Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!

1 Earth / CABAN – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 1 of 13

1 Earth / CABAN

THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN

The next 13 days…

Greetings Kin,

We were given the Divine Thoughts to imagine everything we were meant To Be. Our Ascension from the Seed/KAN trecena was the application of what Monkey/CHUEN inspired us to do. We were weaving the Tapestry of our Own Divine Symbols from the Wisdom of the Experience.

A new Fire burns for a Divine Manifestation. Earth/CABAN is a Day Sign of Fire and Light. Residing in the East, our eyes are turned to a Sunrise that will Illuminate all the Beauty of Mother Earth. It will be the Sun that Rises for that very Divine Meaning and Purpose.

On a journey with Earth/CABAN we’ll be Inspired to see The Creation. Through Mother Earth we’ll see what we’re made of.

Earth/CABAN is known as N’oj in the K’iche tradition. Mother Earth is the source of all Human knowledge. N’oj illustrates how Knowledge is conceived. The N’oj glyph emphasizes 3 different things. Each looks very much like the sperm. Each one symbolizes the different conceptions of Human knowledge… ways of Consciousness. We conceive thoughts through the Human mind, the imagination, and the Inspiration of Divine Spirit. A symbol is understood through the eye of the beholder. Through Divine thoughts, we command the Conscious and the Unconscious Mind for Creation. Mother Earth is the symbol of the Egg where the Circle of Life and the Whole of all our Consciousness would be born.

CABAN is about Movement that Creates Time. We create all the Times of our Life through movement and communication. Through our Movement we will “See what we are Becoming” and the “Gift OUR Seed” brings to the world. The Aztec description associated with the Ollin (all-in) symbol at the center of their calendar, marks a journey with CABAN as the Time and Place where we See our New Self. Ollin means simply, Movement. The Symbols of Earth/CABAN, N’OJ, and OLLIN will inspire us to Move into the world With All Our Heart. A journey of Spirit will be the Offering at our Ascension – 13 Offering/MULUC.

4 SUN/AHAU: Global Burner Day
Burner Days mark an Energetic Release. The Mayan priest carry out the Sacred Fire Ceremonies for the Community. The CHICCHAN of our Love has been Divinely backed into its corner for a New Release of Passionate Love. There is one Global Burner in each Season of the Tzolk’in. This a Global Burner with many Signs and Symbols. The Full Moon the Day Before also forecasts a day of Release, and given a Name of Beauty, “the Full Flower Moon.” A Dream of our Spirit can be seen as something with dimension on Tone 4 that stabilizes like the cube. We will see the Flowers that our Seed will create. 4 Sun/AHAU is Humanity’s Mayan birthday, the Destiny Named for the day Human Consciousness is delivered on Earth.

9TH UINAL: On 5 Crocodile/IMIX we enter the 9th uinal. Nine is all about completing new knowledge by remembering the Patience to look from a broader perspective. From a Divine Perspective we can complete a Truth for the Whole. Crocodile/IMIX is the Primordial Mother at the Beginning of all things. In the 9th uinal she will start us out with an Empowerment (5) of Divine Thought. The 9th uinal completes the buds on the tree that prove to Human eyes that in the Season of Harvest, we will produce the Fruit of our Spirit.

THE ENDING PLANNED FROM THE BEGINNING:
On 13 Offering/MULUC we will Ascend through an Atonement of Divine Consciousness. Following a journey to a Divine Vision of Mother Earth, we’ll receive the Passion to Jump in and Save all she was meant to be. Our Ascension will prepare us for a Journey as the Dog… the Symbol of Unconditional Love that every Human sees.

The Cherokee Day Sign is the Heron, the nuhaul of perpetual migration. They are symbols of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. One of the phenomenons of their migration is the “Sandhill Crane Migration” in Nebraska. Somehow, 500,000 cranes coming from different places all over the globe, end up at the same Time and Place. In our Finest Hour we will be Alone on a journey. Where we end up we will Know we were DIVINELY gathered back into ONE.

13 Wisdom / CIB – Ascension: Day 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 marks an Ascension of Higher Consciousness. 13 represents the 7 days and 6 nights of Creation. We are returned to Unity with the Creator by the Number 13 that symbolizes theurgy, the power to call on Divine Intervention through our Rituals, Sacred Ceremonies, and Prayers. 13 is the Promise of Answered Prayers.

Our Sacred Ceremonies are the Divine Journeys of thought that are Led from and altar. It was our worst Human thoughts that brought us there. Yet, there in the middle of our darkest thoughts, a Divine Voice of Love is always capable to break through. We Hear the thoughts as Divine when they come in the middle of our own despair. They ARE NOT our thoughts. They are the Creator’s Thoughts that can set us back on track for our own Divine Journey.

13 Wisdom/CIB is the Ascension of Divine Wisdom that was promised from the beginning. We have been imagining that we could share an experience of the world so the Seed could hold the Wisdom of Our Experience. Our Legacy could be the Dream we saw Far into the Future, a thought that could begin a journey for the New Generation of our Self.

We learned that we Love by degree. Hate is Love at it’s 0 degree of Tolerance, Understanding, and Forgiveness. It only takes a degree of Love to change our perspective. Love is Eternal. We never forget, once we’ve seen it. Through Forgiveness we will always see it in our Self.

Wisdom/CIB symbolizes the Ancient Ones and Ascended Master – Humans who walked this way before. Wisdom/CIB offers the Connection to THEIR Consciousness. They left the Wisdom of THEIR Experience for us. This is a day to Honor all the things we Know because they preserved the Sacred Wisdom for us. I remember the services for Maundy Thursday, which falls before Easter. It celebrates the day Jesus washed the disciples feet. Each saw that they were unworthy. The Sacred Ceremony at church was to removed all the implements from the altar and carry them away, leaving the sanctuary in darkness. We saw the Symbols of Love the best when they were all taken away. God made a provision for us to be born into Light.

CIB lies in the South, the direction of Relationship. In the Seed/KAN trecena we began, like the New Seed, and we Ascended as the Wise One. The Cherokee symbol is the Owl. The Owl holds the Gift of Eagle’s Vision, except the Owl can see in the Dark. The Owl can extend our Vision to the realm of Spirit to Know our Wisdom of Love.

12 Eagle / MEN – Journey of Realization: Day 12 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Eagle / MEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. Tone 12 extends a great capacity for Retrospection. This is the day all the pieces come together to become the Whole of our New Wisdom of Experience. Seed/KAN, that offered the Eyes to See Clearly, led a thorough investigation of our Self. We comprehended what Monkey/CHUEN knows – that thoughts lead us to Creation.

Eagle/MEN is the Intermediary that raises us up for the Highest Vision. Any obstacles on Earth will disappear from a Vision from Above. Through a Vision of the Future, Eagle/MEN can draw Our Truth to Consciousness.

10 Jaguar/IX helped us claim the Truth of our journeys. We saw how they are an inherent part of every Creation.  We can understand a concept without knowing how it all fits together. Eagle/MEN guides us to look further down the road of our future.

Whatever Eagle Sees lies within its Grasp. Eagles vision is EXACTLY EQUAL to its GRASP. The Eagle lies in the West, the direction of our Unknown Journeys. Holding the Element of Water, Eagle can touch our Spirit and our Emotions. We will see through our Emotions what we SEE as beyond our Grasp. As the Intermediary, 12 Eagle/MEN offers the Experience of “seeing something for our self.”
