MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
13 Eagle / MEN
Today we Celebrate an Ascension of new possibility. On Tone 13 we Ascend with a Higher Consciousness of the Light that shines in the darkness. By focusing on the Light, we gain the willingness and courage to face the Darkness of our Unknown.
Eagle/MEN is the Intermediary that lifts us up to see what we couldn’t see from the ground. From a Higher Perspective we can focus on the future as it was planned by a Divine Creator of Unconditional Love. We could see that any obstacle we find in our path was not the Intention of the Creator. Nor are we to see the obstacles in our life as unfair. We are never challenged by anything that we are not capable to overcome.
Eagle/MEN demonstrates its way of fulfilling a dream is to look far off into the distance, instead of being distracted by what we see “up close.” Eagle demonstrates that if we single-mindedly fix our mind on what we hope to grasp, we can rely on the navigation of Divine Spirit to get there. What we see up close is only temporary, appearing as the chaos of change.
The way of conquering our fear is through Faith. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The intention of the AKBAL trecena was to offer an experience, a Truth of Spirit we can hang onto. Eagle/MEN calls for our Highest Aspirations with Faith in a Promise that we will be guided there by Divine Intervention.
Greetings Kin, Sharing a message from kindred “Dancers of Spirit” from the Medicine Circle in Oklahoma. Much love, in lak’ech, Debra
The 13 Moon Dreamer Journey to Bring Forward the New Dawn of Spring
by Minisa Crumbo Halsey, 1 Wind/IK
The 13 Moon Dreamer Journey to Bring Forward the New Dawn of Spring … and to welcome a spiritual Mayan calendar community led by Debra Malmos, as our circles radiate in love and light for our beautiful and sacred beingness … AHO!
Dear Jaguar Woman and the larger Circle(s) of the Bodewadmin Longhouse,
Bozho, my relations:
Altar construction is SO valuable a teaching to initiate and incorporate into the personal but essentially, collective main stream intuitive consciousness pool. Kiche Migwech … that we begin this mailing with reading and the context of this companion Mayan Calendar, daily inspirational teaching – Go to: jaguarspirit.com, by Debra Malmos, a long time ceremonial member of the sacred two legged community who has done many things with us, here on the land at the Spirit Horse Ranch. She now lives and works in the NW.
You, your larger circle and the beyond Dreamers, were remembered and spoken of last evening as we gathered to conclude a 7 day quiet time, to initiate a Journey into the 13 Moons forward and construct a personal, inner Medicine Wheel altar by which to positively support ours and all life.
6 Reed/BEN is the first Peak Day of this trecena that calls attention to our movements through time. The first 6 days of our Vision Quest journey have been an uphill climb. Having set the course for our direction and knowing our ever-changing nature, Tone 6 finds us free to move beyond who we are in the moment.
The Intention of Tone 6 is to establish a rhythm and pace of movement. Energy shifts from halting steps that required much effort to a steady run, fueled by its own momentum. Reed/BEN offers a foundation where our feet maintain a balance on solid ground.
On our Vision Quest to Self Realization, we are led to recognize the dynamic nature of our Being. To maintain our stability, Monkey reminded us that the Truth of who we are is not reflected by the circumstances of the moment. Our dynamic identity can only be conceived through a reflection of our past, present, and future. Tone 5 of empowerment leads us to an understanding of our own source of Power. Road/EB brings the Power through a perception to Know Ourselves.
Monkey is the magician of the Tzolk’in who has the power to create time. The glyph illustrates “time rolled up” on the head of Monkey. All time is created by the movement of matter. We measure Our Time by the movement of the Earth around the Sun. Monkey has the intellect and imagination as the “Master of all Arts” to see how time is woven together to become an abstract thing of beauty.
Star/LAMAT continues to influence us with a Higher Frequency of Energy. Tones 1 and 2 are OUR low-frequency energies, so the past two days may have left us feeling a little wobbly. The aromas of sage and sweetgrass have been especially helpful to me in restoring peace and balance. Lavendar, Cedarwood and Fir Needle essential oils are also very calming. With the totem Rabbit of Star/LAMAT multiplying everything we focus on, it’s important to pack All our Spiritual Tools for this journey.
Under the guidance of Dog/OC we should experience some comfort from our most faithful companion. Tone 3 is the first day of movement toward our Intention. What we create takes on a movement, vibration and life of its own.
Star/LAMAT leads our Vision Quest to a Higher Realization of Who We Are, Who We Are Becoming, and Who We Can Be. Every Quest begins with a Vision of its Meaning and Purpose. On Tone 1, we were opened to a Divine Inspiration, a Vision, or a Dream as the purpose worthy to lead us on a Quest.
Many of our best-loved stories are centered on this theme. They begin by revealing a Challenge that is greater than the One that takes it on. The Passion of the would-be Hero is ignited by a Higher Purpose to make the resolution of this challenge their Sole Intention. Their next step is an assessment of their own Resource – through Reason, they consider what they have to bring and how they might be able to carry it out.
On Tone 2 we are given the inclination for comparisons and assessments. Our Quest hangs in the balance of a choice we make to move forward. We consider the ways our mission could succeed or fail, and the ways we are either more or less up to the challenge than someone else. Tone 2 is a day of self-reflection. We see how we are different. We can feel alone and can sense the weight of what we could carry on our own shoulders. We see the need for Divine Agency and long to be re-joined.
