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
by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

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.

Transformer/CIMI – by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

TRANSFORMER

The CIMI glyph appears to float between the worlds in a twilight mist, linking spring to the memory of the autumn mist, to which we are related by virtue of the east-west axis on the Medicine Wheel. The Cimi message is information saturated with the mysterious medicine of transformation all the while offering a smile of encouragement. This very serious trecena possesses potentials scarcely glimpsed, barely sensed and yet palpably felt, helping to retrieve and drive all directional and historic returns back to the origin point of the eternal present. Is this the spring of our evolutionary year of years? I wonder, as walks upon the land are revealing, in this two-leggeds observation, hereto for unprecedented growth patterns among the tree beings.

1 Transformer/CIMI – Journey of Transformation

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

1 Transformer/CIMI

1 Transformer/CIMI

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.

As we walk the threshold between two worlds, we may feel the stronger presence of our ancestors.  They are capable to activate our psychic sensitivity when we call on them for support.

Our empowerment will come through an application of Unconditional Love as we flow with the current of Divine Will.

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.

8 Wind/IK – Breath of God

Greeting, KIN,

8 wind ik

8 Wind/IK (Whirlwind)

The Eagle/MEN trecena is guiding us to higher spiritual planes where God is calling us to see the truth of our own divinity. Where there is power, so is there the greater potential for its corruption.

The purpose of our spiritual journey is to prepare us to carry our light in to the world. We will be made ready through the purification of Wind/IK as the healing Breath of God.

Today’s Daykeeper Journal shares inspiration from Spirit and today’s post to the 13-Day Trecena guide offers practical guidance for the observance of this day.

7 Crocodile/IMIX – God’s Creation

Greetings, Kin,

7 crocodile-imix

7 Crocodile/IMIX

I’ve made a tradition of telling my children the story of their birth on every birthday. They never tire of hearing it, and sometimes new details are revealed or understood. Crocodile/IMIX longs to tell us the old stories of how and why we were created.

7 Crocodile/IMIX brings the dawn of our awakening through the peak energies of the Eagle/MEN trecena.

My daily journal shares my inspiration from Spirit and practical guidance for the day is offered for today in the 13-Day Trecena Guide.

2 Wisdom/CIB – Cleared, Empowered and Supported

THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN

2 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl/U’GUKU’)

2 Wisdom/CIB

2 Wisdom/CIB

Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.

Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. A good day to sit on a rock.

Daykeeper’s Journal:

Cleared, Empowered and Supported

The work of Galactic Tone 2 is about making choices. The Eagle/MEN trecena empowers us to seek our highest aspirations. It’s unlikely that our biggest dreams can be completed in 13 days, but may require many cycles of 13 days. Much perseverance will be required for us to get there. As the trecena of our spiritual growth, we are shown that our first and most important step will be our inner work.

We may reflect on what has prevented us from reaching for this goal before. Maybe we started, but abandoned our dream when we didn’t see immediate results. Or, maybe we were discouraged by others who either couldn’t see our vision; or, due to their own feelings of limitation, others didn’t see our dreams as even possible. Whatever it is that has prevented us from seeking our highest dreams is likely to be a source of personal suffering and blame that we must be rid of in order to move on.

The Wisdom/CIB glyph illustrates the mind in a state of forgiveness and enlightenment. It is a brain with rays expanding in all connections. CIB guides us to forgive ourselves and others for our shortcomings. We are released from our own transgressions to the extent that we are able to forgive others of theirs.

Working together with someone who shares our dream offers us the advantage of a different perspective and the staying power of a mutual commitment. Eagle brings us the opportunity to connect with our Spirit helpers so we need never walk alone.

To all my relations, may we enter a place of silence within so we may hear the voices that guide us. May CIB give us the power of discernment to recognize the leadings of the Divine Spirit. May we surrender our disappointments and sorrow to Divine Will, so that we are freed from the suffering of our resentments.

TODAY’S 13-Day Trecena Guide with additional information from the Cherokee Sacred Calendar, and insight on personal ceremony.

13 Jaguar/IMIX – Raised Up

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK

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

13 Jaguar/IX

13 Jaguar/IX

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.

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.

See the 13-Day Trecena Guide for insight on personal ceremony.

Daykeeper’s Journal:

Raised Up

At Galactic Tone 13 our ascension is guided by energies outside of ourselves as a ray of universal movement. Comparing the trecena with the movement of a clock, the minute hand illustrates our incremental movements forward. As the minute hand reaches the hour, the hour hand is engaged to advance forward. All the minutes have come together to form a new hour and time ascends to its next higher level.

At Tone 13 we engage the movement of the “trecena hand.” Incremental processes are bundled as a completed trecena and raised up to become part of universal consciousness. The changes we have been creating in ourselves now affect a universal change. All of creation is impacted by the power of this dynamic movement. As a result, we may experience sudden and radical shifts in consciousness.

On the 13th Tone of the Wind/IK trecena our ascension is guided by one of the most Spiritual signs of the Tzol’kin. By opening the portal to other dimensions, Jaguar/IX presents the potential for profound spiritual advancement. As described by Cherokee Panther/SAHO’NI,  shamanic abilities will open us to multi-dimensional magic that empowers us to become healers, leaders, and way showers for spiritual growth. As a symbol of patience found through gratitude, Jaguar calls us to the intention of being grateful. The joy of our gratitude is the emotion that reaches the heart of the Divine Spirit.

To all my relations, may we be grateful for powerful unseen forces that are operating with us and on our behalf. May we remember the power that is always available to us. May we draw near the Creator to express our gratitude for the way that has been prepared for us.

12 Reed/BEN – Called Near by God

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK

12 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/ I’HYA)

12 Reed/BEN

12 Reed/BEN

Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, 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.

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 endeavor to bring peace, harmony and order to all o 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, may have marriage or business problems because of inflexible vies and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson for Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe. Bless or repair your house.

Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA: REED- 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.

See the 13-Day Trecena Guide for insight on personal ceremony.

Daykeeper’s Journal:

Called Near by God

Reed/BEN is the name given to the open channel of energy that exists between God and man. “Hollow Reed” is a metaphor with roots in ancient Sanskrit literature:

Make me a hollow reed from which the pith of self hath been blown so that I may become a clear channel through which Thy love may flow to others.
 ~ by Rumi

Reed/BEN uses the energy of the Wind/IK trecena to blow us clear so that we are emptied of our self-centered desires and filled with the passion to be near our Creator. Reed/BEN makes of us a channel through which the power of Divine Spirit may flow.

Galactic Tone 12 reflects the intention of understanding. Twelve is the Tone in every trecena where Truth makes the journey from our heads to our hearts. Empowered with the “gift of great capacity for retrospection” we are able to piece together our experiences and knowledge so we may be brought to a new realization.

What beautiful experiences the Wind/IK trecena has brought us so we may realize the beauty that lies in contrast. Our darkest days become the backdrop that displays God’s light most brilliantly. All fear and despair is transformed into joy as we begin to see the pattern. Through our suffering, we are drawn to the nearness of God. Our fear dissolves because we can see the transitory nature of our heartaches. We can recognize them as merely the discomfort of being blown clear, and as a “Sign” that we are being opened to receive new blessings.

As we realize the Truth of our connection we have everything we need to be happy. Even under the worst of conditions, we always have a place to go – an inner sanctuary that holds open the channel to Divine Love. We no longer need hope – for now we know joy.

To all my relations, may we be transformed to see the potential for beauty that lies in every experience. When we are hurting or afraid, may we recognize it as the voice of God calling us near.  May we remember that when we rest in the peace of the Divine Will, the path of beauty ALWAYS leads us into the Light.
