by Minisa Crumbo Halsey, 1 Wind/IK

The 13 Moon Dreamer Journey to Bring Forward the New Dawn of Spring … and to welcome a spiritual Mayan calendar community led by Debra Malmos, as our circles radiate in love and light for our beautiful and sacred beingness … AHO!

Dear Jaguar Woman and the larger Circle(s) of the Bodewadmin Longhouse,
Bozho, my relations:

Altar construction is SO valuable a teaching to initiate and incorporate into the personal but essentially, collective main stream intuitive consciousness pool. Kiche Migwech … that we begin this mailing with reading and the context of this companion Mayan Calendar, daily inspirational teaching – Go to: jaguarspirit.com, by Debra Malmos, a long time ceremonial member of the sacred two legged community who has done many things with us, here on the land at the Spirit Horse Ranch. She now lives and works in the NW.

You, your larger circle and the beyond Dreamers, were remembered and spoken of last evening as we gathered to conclude a 7 day quiet time, to initiate a Journey into the 13 Moons forward and construct a personal, inner Medicine Wheel altar by which to positively support ours and all life.

Eve of the Eagle/MEN Trecena: Ceremony of Initiation

Initiating Ourselves into the Eagle/MEN Trecena

Sacred Ritual allows us to create a physical representation of something in Spirit. Through ritual we are able to establish a relationship with Spirit that can be experienced in the physical world.

My first offering for the new Ceremonial Arts page is a Ceremony of Initiation. The Ritual offers a traditional way to initiate ourselves into a new beginning. This is ritual that can be used at the beginning of each trecena, or at the beginning of every new day.

Visit the Ceremonial Arts Page
Details of the Ceremony are offered on the Ceremonial Arts page, linked on the Main Menu under Medicine Path.

SUMMER — the 21 Days before Autumn Begins

SUMMER — the 21 Days before Autumn Begins

THE AUTUMNAL TWILIGHTS BEGIN & THE 13 BLUE CORN MOONS MEASURE TIME

The night after the Capricorn Full Moon is velvety black and silent. The moon casts the weakest of shadows and illuminates nothing beneath the trees and the following morning is still and quiet.

The Summer Suns begins to move us into the edges of all twilight. The Summer Sun leads us forward into the Autumn by softening the fiery mental resolves and physical intentions, by sponsoring the moist marriage hearts urge to seed and all the while, the Sun Spirit slowly continues winding the cyclical fibers of being upon the spool of spiral time, drawing us forward, binding the drying stalks and fruits into sheaves of harvest.

A Medicine Teaching on Personal Ceremony

by Minisa Crumb Halsey

SUGGESTED FOUR DAY PERSONAL FASTING AND CEREMONY…

Optional: partial fast suggestion for four days of A Good Red Road Ceremony of offering our minds, hearts, and bodies upon the Staff of the Good Red Road of the summer-winter axis. Consider placing the spine upon the Mother Earth, floor or bed and surrendering our spinal beingness to the Creator for initiating Unity movements WHILE INTENTIONALLY RECALLING THE ABOVE OBSERVATIONS. This activity, when activated in a sacred manner opens the potential of reunification and the re-membering of ancient, lost and disparate aspects of the self, the causes of which are not our fault.

Ceremony Update: Eve of Serpent/CHICCHAN

Adjusting to the Direction of South

The Fine Points and Broad Encompassing Curves of the Medicine Wheel

A Message for the Trecena of Serpent/CHICCHAN

SUMMER

trees5xBy the calendar of the natural world we completed the first quarter of summer sometime within the elastic middle of May, three weeks from the energetic ingress of summer.

Often, the last three weeks of a season and the first three weeks (21 days), will display classic transitional patterns so look for the unusual in everything. The unusual may be connected with completing , seating or initiating both the 21 days marking the ending and beginning of seasonal transitions. There may be a push-pull dynamic which can result in a kind of stasis or stop action so listen to the mind, heart, body and spirit message that may be distracted or feelings of overwhelm… set intention to honor and take mindful care of the whole system. These fine points do require the attention of time, rest and thought. Take refuge in silence and solitude when possible. There may also be concurrent rapid change and growth which can stretch and near exhaust resources and reserves and when the two follow closely upon one another, overlap or stack, it is time to call TIME OUT!  No one can really do this to or for us as well as we can ourselves and often, carefully planned timeouts will not even be noticed. Repair, nourishment of all kind, and restoration are a wise (and enjoyable) course to integrate into the busiest and most demanding season of the year.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Seed/KAN

13 Seed/KAN

Greetings Kin,

I forgot to mention that Night/AKBAL represents the element of water – and, a day that could engage our emotions. Yesterday took on an unexpected sensitivity for the goodness of you. I can’t help loving everyone of you, just because we all share this hard road of life. Every one of you has been an encouragement to me to pursue my dreams.

Today is our ascension from the trecena of Road/EB, the road of our destiny. I’ve never felt so sure that life is all about the journey. Our Divine Destiny can be found living in every moment. Everything we need to feel joy is always available at our own command.

8 Storm/CAUAC

8 Storm/CAUAC

Greetings Kin,

The glaring Truth delivered to me by Flint/EZTNAB was a reflection of the reality of darkness in the world. Once in a while, I feel compelled to take a stroll through the news. Storm/CAUAC brings a resolution to our hard realities.

Storm/CAUAC embodies the feeling of warmth and security in the home while the tempest rages in the outside world. There will always be challenges and hard truths. How it affects the Road to our Destiny will depend on our strategy.
