Night/AKBAL is the place of the Great Mystery where all potential lies. Tone 13 of Ascension assists us in moving to a higher level of consciousness.
We ascend as Crystallized Spirit with the potential to be given life as the intended creations of God. Our crystalline form is the vessel that will hold God’s greatest gift.
Night/AKBAL guides us to bravely journey into the void. This Day Sign of the West represents our walk on the hard road of life. AKBAL brings the light to dispel our fear so we can face the unknown of our future.
Mystical experiences are possible as Night connects our intelligence and intuition. Akbal opens the portal to higher dimensions to reveal mystic secrets and speak to us through our dreams.
Tone 12 brings the power to transform a new understanding into a Personal Truth. We are given the gift of retrospection to discover the implications of something we have learned.
Wind/IK represents the Breath of Life and Spirit with the power to create and disseminate new ideas. Wind is changeable. We no longer have to follow a course we’ve taken just to “fit in.” We are given the power and courage to take a new direction so we may live in our true authenticity.
Tone 11 asks us to see how we will integrate change in our lives. Some modifications are required as we see where we fit into the grander scheme of things.
Sun/AHAU manifested our enlightenment by shining its light on all things. Our “higher consciousness” also makes us aware of life’s shadows. This is a time to cast off bad ideas as they are presented to us and to hold onto the Light. This requires us to pay attention to our thoughts.
Under the Day Sign of Crocodile/IMIX we are held in the arms of our primordial mother, who prepares us for our way in the world.
Our crystallization is nearly completed as we are nearing the end of the core days. This 20-day uinal is led under the guidance of our “primordial mother” Crocodile/IMIX. We’ve been shown the details of our design and our connectedness with the whole.
Tone 9 asks for our patience to see there is something more for us to know. Beyond the elements of our design, the most important detail of our creation has yet to be revealed… the reason Why.
We shift from ascending to descending energy on Tone 8. Compared to a wave of time, each trecena builds momentum through Tones 1-6. Tone 7 reaches the threshold of balance and at Tone 8, momentum and gravity accelerate energies to affect a transformation.
Flint/ETZNAB is the great equalizer as the Justice of Truth is brought to bear. Flint sweeps the slate clean by revealing the truth of illusion. Deception cannot be concealed and intentions are suddenly transparent. In the context of exploring our identity, Flint holds the potential for a revelation of the truth of who we are.
In nature, the process of crystallization begins as molecules or atoms dispersed in a solution begin to gather into clusters. This creation that emerges from the void is the work of God’s own hand. These clusters must grow to a critical size to stabilize into form. Only through an effort of resistance can we alter the course of God’s Divine Plan.
Tone 3 brings the first day of movement to the trecena of Monkey/CHUEN. We support the life of our dream through a surrender to the work of God. God’s plan for us is more beautiful than our understanding. With our lowly dreams, our highest manifestation can only be accomplished by standing out of our own way.
Reed/BEN represents the hollow tube that offers a communion with Divine Spirit. As we share our dreams, we are asked to anchor our faith in the Grace of God’s plan.
We are gifted with a power of discernment as Tone 2 asks us to consider alternative points of view. As we cultivate a new dream we are asked to take a deeper look at the pros and cons, the effort required to bring something into being, and how a new plan might benefit ourselves and others. We are asked to consider what our dream might look like in it’s highest manifestation.
The arrival of Monkey/CHUEN trecena hasn’t presented me with a time of fun and games, yet. Though, this is how we are being guided to approach life – both the good and the not-so-fun parts. I find it difficult to not take things seriously when life presents us with such hard truths as we have had to face this week. Yet, these are times when we reveal to one another the depths of our true feelings. “Dreamers who believe in the dream” is the Monkey vision I would hold on to.
We start a new beginning from a state of suspended animation that holds God’s Divine Plan for our design. Monkey/CHUEN is the Master of all Art that weaves the tapestry of our lives. Like the transformation of the butterfly, our Spirit will be crystallized into physical form.
Powerful cycles of transformation converge as we travel through this trecena. The Solstice, June 20, 2016 marks a new solar season during peak energies of this trecena (7 Earth/CABAN). 1 Monkey/CHUEN (1 B’aatz) marks the beginning of an observance of the 21 Days leading up to the Mayan New Year in the tradition of the Maya-Quiche in Guatemala.
This zero point at the center of the Tzolk’in may be seen as a vortex that lifts us to the next higher dimension of who we are. We were raised by an Ascension of Unconditional Love (13 Dog/OC) so that our Spirits may be Crystallized as the Personification of Love.
I expected this time of personal transformation to be lofty, yet all manner of challenges have presented themselves over the past 13 days. (Since I began writing this, a computer went down.) What has felt different is that these challenges are serving as the evidence of a personal breakthrough. The Truth emerging is that my happiness really isn’t subject to outer circumstances. And, in this place of no judgement there is no urgency or fear. I’d love to know if you are experiencing the same.
Transformer/CIMI is the Day Sign that guides us through a major change. The glyph symbol of death references the Truth that something always dies when something new is born. As we are reborn in Spirit we die to our old selves. Tone 9 brings the intention of seeing the bigger picture.
