5 Transformer / CIMI – Mission of Spirit: Day 5 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Transformer / CIMI

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 brings the Power to fuel our climb of new Spiritual Growth. Transformer/CIMI is the Day Sign of Transformation and Change. The glyph illustrates the face of death to reflect that something always dies as something new is born. We are dying to an old way of living in the world, to take on a new Life in Spirit.

CIMI is the Day Sign that offers the Spiritual Gift of Clairvoyance. Through its Understanding of Change, CIMI is able to see the Future. CIMI offers us an Intuitive Understanding of our changes over time.

Like Wind/IK, CIMI represents the Element of Air, the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. Air is the Element of our Intellect, our Ability of Discernment.

The Day Sign Transformer/CIMI is said to mark a Major Life Change. CIMI reminds us that Chaos is a Natural Part of every Change. CIMI is capable to see beyond the chaos to the Change that lies in our future.

Transformer/CIMI is a Day Sign of the North, the direction that connects us to the Wisdom of the Ancients Ones, the Ascended Masters who walked the path as their Higher Self.

Among the ancient concepts of Spiritual Wisdom is the Principle of Polarity. It reflects how opposites are actually one and the same thing, separated only by a “matter of degree.” For example, “easy” and “hard” are the same as a measure of effort. At what threshold does something we perceive as “easy” become “hard?” The same with “hot” or “cold,” the discernment is relative to our degree of perception.

Our Spiritual Transformation is a change that occurs through small changes of perception. We can influence what is “tolerable” and “intolerable” by degree. We can become more forgiving one degree at a time.

4 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Mission of Spirit: Day 4 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 brings the intention of Stability. Representing the cube, the most stable of all forms, and the 4 directions. 4 establishes an orientation, direction and parameters of movement, like the rules of a game.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is the catalyst, the Spark that Lights the Fuse to Life Force itself. This is a day of “Lightning in the Blood.” Serpent seats the Spark within the Seed, our Spiritual DNA.

“Lightning in the Blood” relates to our sixth senses, our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. CHICCHAN holds the Force of Life, Animation, and Movement and Awakens the Spiritual Force within. The Ether of Spirit resides in the Element of Water that flows through Human. CHICCHAN’s gift of Knowing creates sensations in the body as a means of Discernment.

All Human’s were Equally Gifted. Our Spiritual Gifts are part of our everyday experience. We’ve only forgotten the power they hold. We won’t notice them unless we pay attention. We sense danger that generated goosebumps or raised hair. We’ve walked into a room where we knew we’d stepped into the middle of something going on. We don’t even notice to discern what it is.

CHICCHAN awakens the Sixth Sense we can feel. It’s a day to pay attention to gut feelings and sensations in the body. We can bring them to Life through an Application of Consciousness. The Gifts that seem so subtle become more Powerful as they are Seen and Acknowledged. Like the Seed/Dragon, CHICCHAN holds a Spiritual Gift of “Seeing Clearly.”

Today is the Global Burner, a release of pent up energy. All Global Burners are on Tone 4 of Stability (4 Sun/AHAU, 4 Eagle/MEN, 4 Dog/OC, and 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN).  The Maya observe Global Burners with Sacred Fire Ceremonies, for the purpose of restoring Harmony in the Community. Each season offers a day for coming together in a Mutual Intention of Harmony.

3 Seed / KAN – Mission of Spirit: Day 3 of 13

3 Seed / KAN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 is the day of Movement. Through the action of movement or communication, a Dream conceived in our imagination is born into the world.

Night/AKBAL led us to the Void, the place of the Unknown where it’s possible to create anything. Undefined, no limits were placed on what could be. This is a place of the Unseen, yet no less real. Like our world inside the womb, it is a Promise of Life that is yet unknown to the Human within. In the womb we can only imagine a world we hear in muffled tones… as we wonder how we could ever cross the divide into an unseen dimension of being.

We anticipate, yet fear this new world at the same time. The Unknown is our Known. Drifting along in an unconscious state, we have everything we need. Only as the contractions begin, do we feel our freedom is more important. Only when pressed on all sides, do we surrender to an Intention to move into a new world.

Seed/KAN is a symbol of Humanity. They Maya related the Seed of Corn as a representation of all the People, the varied colors of our skin, and the colors that exist within the Human body. Seed holds our two identities, our unique “I Am” in the world, and our Divine “I Am” in Spirit.

2 Night / AKBAL – Mission of Spirit: Day 2 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

Wind/IK filled us with the Breath of Life and Spirit. We were inspired to live our lives in service to a Divine Creator. On Tone 2, the day of duality, we consider how we would manifest such an accomplishment in our own way. We face our Human Nature that we must overcome, and obstacles it could present. We think about how we may be more or less up to the task, compared to someone else. We make a decision of Intention “to be or not to be.” We wonder how our own Spiritual Nature would express itself.

Night/AKBAL is the Voice of Spirit that speaks to us in our dreams. AKBAL is the Spiritual Gift of the Creator that can speak to us of our unconscious Dreams. AKBAL is the Voice of Spirit that knows us better than we know ourselves. AKBAL connects the two sides of the mind, our Intellect and our Intuition. AKBAL calls us to draw Wisdom into our Imagination.

On a Mission of Spirit our way forward lies under the Authority of a Divine Creator. All we have to do is make an Intention to be led by Spirit. Our greatest effort will be to keep an open mind and to Know that Spirit will guide each step of the way.

1 Wind / IK – Mission of Spirit: Day 1 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

1 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

My heart breaks for all families who have lost their children to gun violence. A teenage boy from the Florida shooting was asked in an interview what he thought the solution to be. He said, “We have to be kind to each other every day, because we never know what someone else might be going through.” He held the Wisdom of Forgiveness.

He reflected our Divine Nature. It only takes one person to affect many. One person can help us see the Divinity in the Whole. Every Life is worth saving.

I believe in the Eternal Light of our Spirit. I pray their Lights continue to shine through a Higher Purpose.

with love, Debra

The Next 13 days…

The MULUC trecena called us to Live our Lives from the realm of Spirit. We were called make a Human sacrifice, to die to our life in the world and be reborn in Spirit. Under the direction of Wind/IK, we will apply this Intention to acquire the Wisdom of Experience.

Under the Wind/IK trecena we will bear the Labor of being Reborn. This is our Divine Destiny. The Creator made it easy to navigate in the realm of Spirit. We have every Spiritual Gift we Need.

GLOBAL BURNER DAY: 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN

The Global Burner Day marks a shift of energy. It’s common to experience some “overload” on days building up to a Global Burner. You may find yourself over-stimulated, yet exhausted at the same time. Relationships may be affected. Burner Days were observed by the Maya with Sacred Fire Ceremony for the purpose of restoring Harmony to the Community. Burner days accomplish a burn-off of residual energy that builds up through each season of the Tzolk’in.  See more on the 13-day Trecena Guide.

12th UINAL: We Ascended into the 12th Uinal of Understanding on 13 Crocodile/IMIX. We were Transformed to the Higher Consciousness that in the realm of Spirit, our “reality” is discerned through our Imagination. The Understanding we seek will be found in paying attention to our “wild ideas,” and thoughts that come out of nowhere. Our first Manifestation in this uinal is guided by 10 Monkey/CHUEN, the Creator who has fun without taking life in the world so seriously.We might learn by experience how much more adventurous and fun it is to Live in Spirit. We might also learn to accept that others may think we are crazy. IMIX already taught us it’s not “crazy.” It’s “genius!”

PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions. 1 Wind/IK is the only portal day in this trecena, though as the presiding Day Sign for this 13-day cycle, the Force of Wind will be magnified. Today, the Divine Inspiration from our Spiritual Gifts will be magnified.   

The Haab New Year: On February 20, 2018, 6 Deer/MANIK moves into position as the Year Bearer. The planetary cycle reflects that the world around us will call for us to establish a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement of providing a Divine Service to one another. We may find greater need to turn to each other in the coming year. Deer/MANIK, as the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, indicates the Power of our Authority. This shift is conceived by the Galactic Week of 1 Wind/IK. We can expect the Winds of Change, and the Power of the Wind at our back.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Deer/MANIK- will guide a flow of movement as a Divine Agent.
  • 7 Star/LAMAT – will balance the Above and the Below. LAMAT, the sign of “pure luck” will multiply the Light of our Spiritual Effort to Abundance.
  • 8 Offering/MULUC – the Holy Day of “pure spirit” will transform us through Divine Justice, returning the Salvation that is earned by Offering to Live in Spirit.
  • 9 Dog/OC – uses the Peak Energy of Transformation to change us through a Deeper Understanding of Unconditional Love.

12 Jaguar / IX – Vision Quest: Day 12 of 13

VISION QUEST: DAY 12
The invitation and introduction is offered on the journal post for 1 Night/AKBAL. Suggestions for daily practice are offered on the Vision Quest Ceremony page.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 brings the Intention of Understanding. Pieces of understanding are brought together as a new and functioning whole. Tone 12 is the day when what we’ve learned makes the trip from the head to the heart.

Jaguar/IX experiences the whole through its heightened sense of its surroundings. Often the only sign of a Jaguar are the footprints it leaves behind. The Jaguar is the sign of the shaman and shape-shifter, capable to travel in Spirit to any place and time. All its magic and Spiritual Gifts are said to be born of its Gratitude for Mother Earth. Living close to the ground, the Jaguar sees Mother Earth as the source of every blessing.

On 12 Jaguar/IX we can find our Understanding through the Natural World. As we complete a journey of Spirit, the Jaguar calls us to draw close to Mother Earth to reflect on all her forces of nature. Many of her miraculous ways are still a mystery, how her matter is influenced by Human thought. We are One as “the Creation” and “the Creator” of our experience of the world.

11 Reed / BEN – Vision Quest: Day 11 of 13

VISION QUEST: DAY 11
The invitation and introduction is offered on the journal post for 1 Night/AKBAL. Suggestions for daily practice are offered on the Vision Quest Ceremony page.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 represents the Intention of Resolution that “assists every new thing to find its place.” 11 offers a Higher Vision of how our new understanding would actually fit into our lives. Tone 11 leads us to adjustments and simplicity.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign of the Altar where we Humble ourselves in Communion with the Creator. Reed is also the “guiding light for family and home.”

Tone 11 is the day the shaman climb to the highest altars.  This is a day to seek higher inspiration.

Reed/BEN illustrates an altar. Below are the prayer mats where we kneel in Humility. Above are the channels through which we draw the Light, our communion with the Creator.

A Vision Quest is a choice to “live in the realm of Spirit.” Here we get lost in our loftiest dreams. Returning to our day-to-day reality, we wonder how the two will fit together. Reed/BEN reminds us the channel is always open from our Sanctuary within.
