13 Storm / CAUAC – Ascension: Day 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Storm / CAUAC

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 marks the Ascension of every climb. 13 is a symbol of theurgy, a Power given to Human to call upon Divine Agency through our rituals and prayers. There is exponential Power when our prayers are carried out through Movement. The Sound creates the Vibration. We send out a Call to the Universe. With every Offering to the One there will always be a Sacred Exchange. What we give for a Divine Purpose will always be returned as an Answer to our Prayers, the Feeling for Believing.

On Tone 13 we can see the Light that shines a New Way. We hold the 20/20 of hindsight, a very Common thing. In the Offering, we see more than just “what happened.” We see what it means. For all the darkness of the journey, we found a Light that was preparing to Break through. A Divine One Honors our Human limits and the Divine Intention to Live with all our Heart. A Divine Creator allows us to carry the ball as far as we can go, so when we fail, we’ll know it wasn’t because we didn’t try.

In the Divine ball game of Life, the loser who wins their Life has the hardest game to play. Their life was saved by the Hero. They were left with the hardest question. Did I give it my all? Or, did I “hold something back” to save myself? It’s a question we will ask whenever we see a chance to Love “walk away.” The Hero creates the Divine Intention to Give Back, and Pay Forward. When we know all the sacrifices that have been made for us, when hearts were worn on a sleeve. In the Light of an Offering to Love and Forgive, we’ll know a Reason to Balance the Truth with ALL the Love we CAN See. We are always a Hero when we make the sacrifice that Feels for another who can’t see. The Vigilant Eye of the Deer, seeing the Divine Light of Truth was given for US to See the Light on behalf of the one that can’s see it for themselves. Our heart will bend, knowing Every Human Being deserves to know their life is worth remembering.

The Offering of Deer/MANIK is shining a way to the Power of Love. Once we grasp a thread of the Divine Truth, we’ll have all the Light we need to live our brand new life. Storm/CAUAC is the midwife that delivers. CAUAC opens the path for the Light. When the Truth like lightning breaks, we see the whole landscape for a moment. We wish we could see it long enough to gaze at the image, though the Beauty is how it breaks into one big display as Light brighter than Sun came out of nowhere. Like the Truth comes out of nowhere, when a Divine Creator intends for us to know the Truth we Know.

Deer/MANIK holds the Element of Water and the Truth of our Spirit. Storm/CAUAC is the Power that Creates the Living Water, Air/Thoughts struck by a Light of Truth/Fire broke apart all the pieces and parts and sorted them by kind. Adding the Gift of Nitrogen, lightning delivers the “building blocks” for our Life… the Truth we know will stand as a way we will always remember.

12 Flint / ETZNAB – A Reason to Love: Day 12 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 raises the Intention of Understanding. 12 is the symbol of Human, the Being of Duality Below, guided by the “Only One” Above. When Human uses more than Reason to count the Numbers, we’ll know the Meaning of the symbols. Symbols add up to convey a Divine Reason for Time in synchronicity with an Event of Knowing.

Tone 12 is the day that Truth is moved from the Head to the Heart. We have to see the Truth more than once to even consider any value worth knowing. We expect Truth to be part of our common experience. We need more than one event to make the comparison, or to consider that this will be the way things work. Comprehension is carried out by the Divine Agreement that Truth is always worth knowing. We add Light to Love when we share the Truth. Opening our Heart to reveal the limitation, always creates an Opportunity for Love. Putting our heart on the line is the sacrifice to claim the Truth of Love we’ll feel.

Flint/ETZNAB is the Mirror that reflects the Truth. In every Obsidian Mirror, the Vision we see is always our Self. The Truth we look to see was created within. Flint is the sacred knife used for a sacrifice of the Heart. The glyph illustrates the pyramid from Above. Flint is a Light of Truth that breaks all at once.

ETZNAB delivers the “ah ha moment” straight to the Heart out of nowhere. Vigilantly conscious of our thoughts, the “ah ha moment” wasn’t the first time we knew it. It’s the first time all the pieces come together as One Light. Flint shares the Experience of How Truth can Feel when we’re afraid to know it.  We’re afraid to wear our heart on our sleeve for good reason. It’s an offering that hurts when there’s no sacred exchange. Flint can raise us to Believe that Truth is always Divine. Even when it hurts, the pain will go away and in offering to Forgive, we’ll be Grateful for the way that Truth makes clear.

There’s Times we need the Truth right now and don’t have Time to learn. The Divine Provision is the Light that breaks through from Above. Flint is said to deliver the Truth along the path of a lightning strike. It’s unexpected. You don’t know where the Light will break, but you can feel something is about to break loose. When we reach the end of Human limits, we really need to know a Divine Light WILL Break to see our way through.

11 Earth / CABAN – A Reason to Love: Day 11 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

11 Earth / CABAN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 raises the  Intention of Resolution. The One Above wants us to claim the Whole Truth. Divine Truth is the Light to Live in the Balance of Harmony and Equity. Like a Divine Pair of antennae, 11 tunes us in to the frequency and Sound of Love we can know through all our Senses.

On Tone 10 we manifested the Creation a human claimed was True. The Whole Truth is beyond our wildest Dreams. Dynamic developments are possible when we keep reaching beyond a creation Human says is “finished.”

On Tone 11 the Mayan priest carries the Offering to the Highest Altar. In the Light we Remember Human can’t imagine High enough. We marked the Dream with an “X” for the Truth too good to be true. We only claimed a speck.

Forgiveness was the Highest  Love we could know. We “created everyone’s fault.” The Monkey/CHUEN is the Master of Art and Time. Monkey/CHUEN never finishes most of what it starts. We can see the Truth in the Reflection. Our Divine Creations are never “finished” by Human’s Hand.

Earth/CABAN is the Divine Mother of Movement that Creates Time. The Force of her Movement is the Energy that creates her Light. She is our Mother. We are made of her. Like her, when we are engaged with a Reason to Love, nothing will stop us from Moving toward that End.

CABAN represents the Clarion Call to Live OUR Life by our Own Truth. The Power to Reach the End is the Force of the Reason – how bad we want it. The Truth at the Center of everything is the “sum of the Whole” extremes we’ve seen at either end of the scale.

THE DAY SIGNS OF LIGHT: RED AND BLUE
The aspects of “light” and “dark” are the binary cycles of Human’s process of discernment. First we get the “light of an idea” that we hold Faith to Believe. The “dark” is Human’s application of our own “light of the Truth.” Human believes when we’ve seen the Truth as our own Experience. We can break it down further. Red is the color of Fire and in many spiritual traditions, the color of “Divine Medicine.” Red is the Light from Above. Blue and Black represent the Light of the Unknown. Water is the Element that holds the substance of our Spirit. Blue is the color of the Water. Black is the Reflection on the Water of the Darkness. In TOTAL darkness, whatever we see can ONLY BE the Vision within. In the Dark we can see our own Reflection of Divine Justice.

10 Wisdom / CIB – A Reason to Love: Day 10 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 raises the Intention of Manifestation. Tones 8 through 13 are the “transformation phase” of each cycle of Light, led by Divine Intervention. Our Transformation is the Gift of Divine Justice. Through the Eagle’s eye we could see the future, Divine Justice always has our name on it.

Tone 10 presents the challenge of manifestation. No matter how far we’ve traveled, and no matter how many obstacles we’ve overcome, we have to claim the Truth of our own Transformation to manifest the Wisdom of the Experience. The Maya symbol for 10 represents the 2 Hands that will complete the end in the future, a Divine Hand Above and a Human Hand Below.

Guided by the Deer, the Mayan priest who is dedicated to follow a path to an altar of Love, we found a Reason for Life that would always lead to the Divine Justice of our Highest Hopes and our Highest Aspirations. At a Divine Altar, kneeling in humility for all our broken ways, a Creator’s Divine Justice is to See the Beauty in our Self, and Beauty all around. It was Offered from the Beginning. We can’t reach to know it without receiving what was already given as ours to have and to hold, the Power to live the most beautiful life.

The Deer/MANIK led us to the threshold of a new life that is already here and now. We are standing at the door.  The Creator’s Dream for every Human was a Life of Harmony and Equity from the beginning to the end. To manifest the end of the Creator’s Dream, we have to claim Life is Beautiful from the “Alpha to the Omega.”

To manifest the Creator’s Divine Justice, Human has to Choose to open the door that leads to a Divine State of Mind.

How to manifest our Dreams is the first and last Wisdom that Human always wants to know. We are the Seed that’s been pushing so far through the darkness, reaching away from the matters that hold us down. Sometimes a Human will fly away, when we’re so close to the end. The longer we wait for the Divine Future to be, the harder it gets to Remember how far we’ve come.

CIB represents the creation of Human Consciousness as a Whole. The glyph illustrates the Human mind in it’s Highest State of Consciousness, emanating the Light of Love and Truth, shining as the Light of Forgiveness. Forgiveness is the Key to the Kingdom that Human has to Choose. A Divine One can lead us to the Reason we should use it, but Forgiveness is Human’s Choice to make.

When we claim the Wisdom of Forgiveness, we’ll claim the Truth in the Light.

9 Eagle / MEN – Mayan Birthday Gift

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Eagle / MEN

Greetings Kin,

9 Eagle/MEN is my own Mayan Birthday. Looking back in Time, I set foot on the Sacred Path of the Sun/Moon Dance on September 20, 2002. It was 3 Eagle/MEN, the day my path took flight. The only speck I could see from the beginning was the Light that shined from other eyes.

What I’ve learned in 20 years is that there’s so much more I want to know and how little I’ve seen of my own life, now that I know what I’m looking for. It’s no less beautiful to see it now, as long as I’ve seen it before the end.

I was always trying to see myself as the light in someone else’s eyes. Trying to find myself, I never thought of looking within. If someone could just tell me who I appeared to be. We “appear” in our own Dreams.

I began a journal online as the means of keeping all my thoughts in one place. When I tried to journal before it was left on pieces of paper, and a variety of yellow pads without any order. The whole reason is to see the order.

I was afraid of being seen so I didn’t sign my name in the beginning. I was only dedicated to one meaning and purpose to find a meaning and purpose for my life from a dark place that seemed to go on forever. Until, I came to my last hope. The ONLY way I could see was to totally invest myself in the One Thing in my life that offered any meaning to the experience of my life. It was an 8 Monkey/CHUEN, the day of the Daykeeper Initiation, that I wholly dedicated myself to the purpose of 260 days and 260 glyphs, just to make it as hard as I could – to KNOW I’d invested everything I had in the purpose.

9 Eagle / MEN – A Reason to Love: Day 9 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Eagle / MEN

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 raises the Intention of Patience. There could be suffering for lack of Insight. The Number 9 is about completion. Tone 9 guides us to see the Big Picture. In the 9th Hour we acknowledged that we are “finished.” The Common thought is to stand back to see what we’ve done.

Learning to Bend in Humility, the Creator raised our Common burdens to Light, along with some very Common ways that people See Love. The Truth looks different in every Time and Place. The Reason to Forgive will be our Key to the Kingdom. The Dog and the Monkey shared the Beauty of Love and the Wisdom to Create it. In spite of what we know, with the best intentions we will only see a fraction of the “sum of the whole.”

The Deer claims its Holy Ground, silently standing on the Truth today, knowing there will be Higher Ground tomorrow. On Tone 9 our Heart is wholly invested in the One Divine Cause on behalf of the Whole. We ALL want to be Remembered. We don’t have to wait. We can Remember now.

Humans create reality all the time. The “other” is a character created in our imagination. Another Human Being will FEEL how they are Seen. It’s wise to look back at the end of every day to see EVERYTHING we created. With Patience we’ll always see the better way for tomorrow. We are already seeing the next higher end.

The Eagle resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Future. Through the Element of Water the Eagle speaks to our Heart. Eagle/MEN is the Intermediary that shares a View of the Creator and the world below. The Eagle sees a direct path Above without any obstacles.  The Eagle is the nahaul that looks into the future.

8 Jaguar / IX – A Reason to Love: Day 8 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 raises the Intention of Divine Justice. We were changed in the Zenith Hour by seeing Truth from a Higher Perspective. On Tone 8 a Higher Truth is raised in Sacred Exchange for the Human offering. The Truth of Divine Justice is always the Answer to Human’s prayer.

We were designed to live in the Balance. Our Human Ego sees “what’s not fair.” Our Spirit knows that all things Balance with Time.

Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena. The Maya’s definition of the Number 8 is “pure spirit.” The Transformation that begins on Tone 8 is guided by Divine Agency. For all the effort that was invested by Human Will, a Divine Agency will employ on our behalf. Only, a Divine Agency will employ an exponential and Unseen Power of Divinity. Divine Justice is higher than Human Justice. Human limitations are covered by the Divine Provision. The Love we held by Intention was Human’s Offering of “pure spirit.”

Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit. Residing in the North, IX holds Divine Wisdom. Through the Element of Air, that relates to our thoughts, and the inner workings of the Human mind, IX can change our mind through the Truth of Divine Justice.

The Jaguar always leads a journey toward the East, the Light of Divine Truth that marks a beginning. When we look down to see where we are, the Jaguar’s footprints are the Sign that we are exactly where we’re supposed to be. The place where we are is the place “we belong now” for the “place we will be in the future.” We were given Milestones of Truth that we would remember, so we could look back and see that it was the Truth before, in that Time of synchronicity, when we DID know we were exactly where we were supposed to be. A Divine Creator who knows our thoughts, knows the “sum of the whole Truth” we haven’t seen. What was True before, is still True again, and we can Believe it’s the way things will always be.

All the Divine Truths of Spirit are Universal Laws – Truth to Infinity. 8 is the Number of Abundance and Life to Infinity. We are the Seed, just breaking out of a shell. We may feel like we’ve been pushing forward through the darkness to our very limits. But we were reaching for the Light. The Jaguar led our last Human climb.  The Intention was to walk the walk below, holding the Divine Truth Above to raise the Wisdom of Experience. On 8 Jaguar/IX, the Truth of the Experience is exalted in the Zenith Light.

7 Reed / BEN – A Reason to Love: Day 7 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 raises the Intention of Reflection. We complete the Human climb on Tone 7 to reach the top of the pyramid. Above the canopy was the Highest Altar with a view all around. We can see “all that is” and  “all that’s not” in a place that can draw us to the Truth of the Balance.

The Number 7 represents Human’s power to create our own reality. The “reality” of our Life is built from the framework of the Truth We Believe, about our Self, Others, and Life as a Whole. Tone 7 offers a view from Above, to see the Truth in the Reflection, Below. The climb to Higher Consciousness IS Human’s way to See the Truth from everyone’s perspective. We can’t invest our Self in the Divine Work without being change by the experience, when we see the burdens we share. Empathy will raise our Love to Compassion, Love that Feels.

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for family and Home. Holding the Element of Fire, we are transformed by our Love for One Another, when we’re guided by Ben – the nahaul that Ties the Binds of Belonging. BEN is said to be a Good Day to Bless the Home. The Maya also observe BEN as a day to check in on the neighbors. BEN raises the family by leading them to an altar.

BEN holds very high expectations for integrity, believing in its own Highest Way. BEN guides us to lead with a “garden hose” and not a “steel pipe.” BEN’s beliefs are NOT the Blessing. We don’t raise intelligence with a steel pipe. We can never tell someone else what to believe, when the WHOLE REASON for the climb is to know WHAT WE BELIEVE. We can be a Divine teacher, when we remember the point of the lesson is help the next generation believe in their own Truth.

Winter Vision Quest Cave: Spirit Talk by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

Winter Vision Quest Cave

by Minisa Crumbo Halsey

In this season, many inner compasses will begin turning toward seeking, creating and crawling into the blessed peace of the seasonal vision quest cave.

Inside, a deep breast of the resting Mother Earth, is where the Medicine Wheel slowly turns in an earthly circumambulation of all seed dreams, penetrated by fiery shafts of our Father Sky Sun into the mind, heart, body and Spirit of individual inner pools of quiet.

Here, ones bones can and may be deeply CLEANED: healed and loosened from the labors, challenges, cares, aspirations and fulfillments of the previous season, then slowly put back together as an honoring dream dance echo of all the ancestral journeys made before ours and those yet to come. The womb quest awaits. Draw aside a veil of the great mystery, breathe your name, make an offering and ask permission to replicate and renew the journey that all beings have made, do make and will make..from earth to sky … breath into clay … so we are made and so we reenact the sacred moves, as we see them.

For, we are the new myth makers. Many dreams and messages have been brought forward, by ourselves and others … accept these offerings, feast upon the tears of bitterness and gratitude from which they were born and prepare to embark upon making the new myths and creation stories … OUR new myths drawn from a place where our sacred beingness meets with and is fused with mysterious elements emanating from an indivisible and indestructible connection with divine consciousness and personal discernment.

This is how we stay alive and keep the world alive. This then, is our Sacred Charge. Where we will feel most alive and know who we are.

Links to download Volumes 1 and 2 are included.

6 Road/EB (Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA)

Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.

Road/EB: The bearer of time and conductor of destiny; also known as Human; these persons open the road and guide to the future groups, communities and individuals alike. Likable, obedient, dedicated hard workers and organizers, Road persons are fortunate in business and travel. Many become care takers of the poor, sick, or old people, where they may make personal sacrifices. Road is sometimes referred to as the sign of grass, which is the most bountiful of all life forms, but is also the most humble. Road persons are affectionate and emphatic; they are easily hurt but slow to anger. Holding in of negative emotions and unexpressed resentment can lead to illness, a poisoned opinion of others and a false bravado for this sun sign.

Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA: Symbolized by a rainbow, the delicate display of electromagnetic rays of the SUN. Rattlesnake Tooth is the Natal day sign of Medicine, the Shaman, the Priest, the Healer, and the Sorcerer.  Guardian of the Way, Keeper of the Keys of the secret Kingdom.
