4 Storm/CAUAC – Regeneration

4 Storm/CAUAC  (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)

4 Storm/CAUAC

4 Storm/CAUAC

Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.

Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.

Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus.  Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.

See the 13-Day Trecena Guide if you’re following along with the trecena.


On the stabilizing forces of Galactic Tone 4, Storm/CAUAC moves through to prepare us for new growth. Storm is the Day Sign of lightening and thunder that can shake us to the core and blow the dead leaves from our branches. CAUAC brings the gift of Nitrogen that nourishes us to grow. Though there may be some initial damage, the process serves to make us more stable and resilient.

Storm/CAUAC offers dramatic evidence of unseen forces that flow through and around us. Cauac is capable to ignite us as “lightening in the blood”. We are energized by the direct transfer of life force.

We may be shaken, but are prepared to grow stronger as the end result. As we are stabilizing our connection to Spirit the Divine Spark of Cauac initiates the process of regeneration. In biology, regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes us resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage.

To all my relations, may we be encouraged that unseen forces are working on our behalf to empower us through the process of regeneration. Prepare us for the dramatic changes that may take place.

13 Eagle/MEN – Vision from Spirit

13 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)

Mayan Glyph, 13 Eagle/MEN

13 Eagle/MEN

Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.

Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.

Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Eagle’s symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation. Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions, cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth, a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance.

Vision from Spirit

Galactic Tone 13 is the Tone of Ascension. We are completing our journey through the trecena of Night/AKBAL and preparing to ascend to the next higher level.

Following the Tzolkin we are made aware of a pattern or rhythm of energies. Every trecena begins and ends with the guidance to reflect and do our inner work. On the first two days of every trecena we draw our inspiration for the road ahead. On the last two days, we reflect on what we have learned.

Tone 13 of ascension gives us the vision to see what we have accomplished. The Day Sign of Eagle/MEN makes the connection between heaven and earth so we may draw understanding from our highest authority in Spirit.

Eagle broadens our perspective and gives us the vision to see the far-off distance. If we look back, we can see how much we have grown. As we look forward, we can see to a farther horizon. With Eagle Vision, we are able to see what new tools we may bring to serve the journey ahead.

We are capable of more than we realize. We can draw a clearer vision of ourselves through the eyes of the Creator. In the light of the Creator’s unconditional love, we realize we are more than just enough. We are no more or no less than all that has come before. We carry within us the fire of the Holy Spirit that connects us to all that is.

Eagle opens the channel to Spirit. We can enter into this communion with humility and gratitude, giving thanks for what we have received and to ask for guidance and direction.

To all my relations, may I enter into the silence where I may hear the voice of Spirit. May I see myself through the eyes of unconditional love and give thanks for all we are given. May I be opened to receive a new understanding and the Truth that Spirit would have me know.

12 Jaguar/IX – Gifts of Spirit

12 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Mayan Glyph, 12 Jaguar/IX

12 Jaguar/IX

Galactic Tone 12: Twelve is a gift of great capacity of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength or character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.

Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians.  Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Totem Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions; shamanic abilities will open; multi-dimensional magic; healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth.  Abuse would be for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance.

Visit the Tolkin Page for additional resources and insight on the Trecena Night/AKBAL.

Gifts of Spirit

Jaguar/IX presents a time when new portals and dimensions are open to us. On this day, as the ‘Coming of the Light’ we are open to receive our spiritual gifts. Tone 12 empowers our gift of retrospection and insight. We are given Jaguar vision to see something we haven’t seen before.

Among all the Day Signs, IX is the one most capable to open us to our highest levels of consciousness. IX is the Magician who holds the memory of the Earth’s creation. IX has the power to communicate between the real and the unreal, the positives and negatives, the possible and the impossible. Guatesol

We are the Ones we have been waiting for. We are encouraged to seek our inner knowing. We must divorce ourselves from all personal motives to receive our gifts in full measure. What gifts we may be given will only endure to serve the good of all.

As such, IX calls us to be in good standing with one another. Only through right relationships are we able to see what is truly needed and how our gifts can be most helpful.

To all my relations, may I greet this day with the anticipation and in gratitude for the new understanding it will bring. May I be made worthy through my highest intentions to receive the gifts that would be presented to me. Help me see beyond my own personal gain so that I may know where healing and light is most needed to serve the greatest good for all.

11 Reed/BEN – Connection to Spirit

11 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)

11 Reed/BEN

11 Reed/BEN

Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.

Reed/BEN: Reed persons are the spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. They are competent speakers who will take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, Reeds endeaver to bring peace, harmony, and order to all of their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation, many have marriage or business problems because of inflexible views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.

Cherokee, Reed I’hya: Symbol-Reed is the Earth, reflection of the Star Chaga of Pollux. Reed made up the Magician Twins who led the journey to bring back to life the daughter of the Sun. The Casket is Gemini. Energy for Intellectual minds, creation, re-creation, new directions, breaking the ties that bind.  A trailblazer and leader. From the East, direction of success and happiness, no matter what route is taken, always ending up in the Light.

Connection to Spirit

We are making a journey through the 13-day trecena of Night/AKBAL. Each day leads through a passage of darkness and the unknown where all potential lies. Through this cycle we may be opened to the highest source of inspiration and guidance, our connection to Spirit.

Spirit is the still small voice within from which we can draw the Truths that sustain us and show the way. Spirit is the Sacred Fire at the altar within.

From the symbology of the glyph, the vertical lines at the top illustrate the nourishment coming down from the sun. The vertical lines at the bottom represent the reeds or cane plants. In Native American teachings, the reed represents the hollow tube through which Spirit descends to the people. The horizontal line is the altar and the cross woven lines depict the reed mat, used for kneeling in front of the altar.

We make our connection by kneeling at the altar of our own Spirit. Here in the silence we have a direct correspondence with Spirit of the Heavenly realms. When we come forward in humility seeking the highest good of all, we are opened to inspiration beyond the limits of our own dreams.

The Night/Akbal trecena is guiding us to see our unlimited potential. At Tone 11 we are encouraged to seek clarity from what we have experienced, as Reed/BEN opens the channel to Spirit. Through our connection to Spirit we are offered a new understanding of our unlimited potential to prepare us for our next journey.

To all my relations, may we be ever grateful for the freedom to choose our own paths. May I be open to hear the guidance from Spirit that leads me forward to the path of my true life’s purpose.

P.S. (Personal Synchronicities)
I responded to a delayed Thanksgiving text message on my phone. I received a response back, saying it was Kmart who was in possession of the lost phone. I had no way to reach my friend 2,000 miles away in Tucson. I emailed a mutual friend in Mexico, who knew other mutual friends on facebook. She was able to track down the friend’s sister who called her son who lives nearby. She still doesn’t know it, but a long line of connections are in process of returning her phone from a text that was sent to Washington state.
