The First 8 Monkey/CHUEN of this Journal: October 18, 2015

Greetings Kin,

8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’aatz) – First 8 B’aatz I painted.

I wanted to share the journal from October 18, 2015, the day I made a commitment to Count the Days. I had been calling myself a daykeeper since 2002 without a Dedicated Practice. I looked at the Tzolk’in every day for some synchronicity. That was as far as I looked.

I had written a few posts from the calendar on the blog, and thought it would be a tool for organization. Then one day, I mentioned the 21-day Gratitude Ceremony in a post. I thought, why talk about it, if you aren’t going to do it. I committed to 21 days. “What had I done? What would I even have to write tomorrow?”

Don’t hold me to any Wisdom about the Maya from 2015. I guess it was good I picked a narrow topic. I couldn’t even Sign my Name.

On that 8 B’aatz I realized I never made a real commitment. I Initiated myself. As my Offering, I made a commitment to 260 journals and 260 glyphs, one for every day.

Material changes have followed and I’m still following that path to another Dream. I could never measure the value of a worldly return to the Consciousness to see all the Blessings that were Always there and are Eternal.

I couldn’t have done it without YOU. I’m grateful to Celebrate the Day it began with you.
The Sun is shining, the Mother Finch is singing her song to it, and I placed my Love there. The Signs and Symbols will rise with tomorrow’s Sun, the beginning of our New Life on Earth.

in lak’ech, Debra  – HAPPY NEW LIFE

Galactic Tone 8: Justice – Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh ll evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in statement, “as above, so below”. The energy of 8 organizes all levels of creation.

Monkey/Chuen/B’atz’: Known to the maya as the weaver of time – Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality.

The K’iche’ Maya of highland Guatemala honor this day, 8 B’atz’ (Chuen/Monkey) as the beginning of the 260-day cycle of the Tzolk’in calendar. This is a special day when the Maya community joins to celebrate with Fire Ceremonies of gratitude and is the day of initiation for Shaman and Mayan Daykeepers.

When Maya people celebrate the Tzolkin new year, they are celebrating that the creation of the world has been fulfilled and that a new cycle of 260 days begins. The ceremony includes calling all of the 260 days of the Tzolkin/Cholq’ij calendar. Monkey is the first one called in during the Count of Days in Guatemalan Mayan fire ceremonies because he signifies the beginning of time.

These ancient sacred ceremonies are a time of purification, blessing and celebration now recognized and honored by Daykeepers throughout the world as well as the traditional Maya. Among the practices of a Daykeeper is to welcome the inspiration of a new Sun, and to send a message of love forward on the Sun in lak’ech to the next Daykeepers waiting for the dawn.

To all my relations, I am grateful for honored traditions brought forward from our ancestors that bring meaning and connection to our lives. I am grateful for every new beginning and for the opportunity it brings to be made new once again and to clear a way for a fresh path forward.

Most of all, I am grateful to hold a sacred space with those that share the path of beauty that we may all move forward in harmony and in the spirit of lak’ech – “I am another yourself.”

Today brings an opportunity join in a celebration in harmony with all that is. As this new day dawns, I send my love around to you on the Sun.

Greetings Kin,

This trecena has kept me a little off kilter and at times even feeling a little off-balance. Remember to extend yourself some TLC and get as much rest as possible.

This is a day for reflection. Tone 12 helps us to come to a new understanding. We are given a “gift of retrospection” that helps us see a deeper meaning from the experiences of this cycle. We are called to be the conscious observer and review the hallmarks moments of change.

TODAY is a GREEN DAY that magnifies what you focus on. Celebrate the successes and the possibility of blessings in disguise.

Galactic Tone 1 opened us to new inspiration about what we might choose to focus on as our intention for this trecena. Now, on Galactic Tone 2, we consider the possibilities to set a clear direction.

Deer/MANIK arrives early in the trecena to provide the Spiritual Tools we may rely on to navigate our transformation. May we use our discernment to see the differences between the changes we might seek and those that God might choose as our highest intention.

10 Wind/IK – Divine Correspondence

Greetings Kin,

9 Crocodile/IMIX connected me to my most long-standing sorrows. My encounter with the mothering energy of IMIX played out like running home with a skinned knee. Chaos is a part of every new creation and IMIX is the Day Sign of a new birth. 10 Wind/IK follows with the very first breath. On the Galactic Tone 10 of manifestation we are breathed alive as the new I AM.

Tone 10 is that place in every trecena where we stop and take stock of the work we’ve done and to see what we have manifested. The work of the Reed/BEN trecena has been about seeking to see God. Continue reading

Greetings Kin,

Every element of the universe is in perpetual motion. We are all united in a perpetual dance of movement with everything that is.

Just as birds migrate with the seasons and flowers turn their faces to follow the Sun, the cycles within our human bodies are also in rhythm with a universal movement. The Mayans believe that consciously engaging with these energetics, is to exist within a sacred flow and in Divine Correspondence with all that God created.

The synchronicity of the Tzolk’in calendar often amazes me, but I don’t think I’ve ever been so amazed as I am right now. The Light of the Sun/Ahau trecena has just been turned on, as we are entering peak energy of the trecena.

SIDE NOTE: When is Easter?
Easter is always the first Sunday, after the first full moon, after the Spring Equinox.
