THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN
3 Earth Caban (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.
Power of Earth Magic
Tone 3 is a day of action that brings eloquence to our communication. The Cherokee Day Sign for Earth/CABAN is the Heron (Guwi’sguwi), also a sign of movement and perpetual motion. As Tone 3 presents our first day of movement in the Eagle/MEN trecena, this is the day of quickening as our dream becomes a new vibration.
The higher we soar with the Eagle/MEN trecena, the more we can see the world is much bigger than we knew it before. Earth/CABAN engages us with the dynamic forces of nature.
I had the pleasure of visiting with a glass artist yesterday who told me a story about his relationship with glass. He shared a time when he was unable to bring forth his greatest inspiration. He was finding the glass unyielding to even the most simple of processes. In a moment of great frustration he called out, “WHY WON’T YOU DO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO!?” And the glass spoke, “Because you don’t appreciate me.”
He was changed by it. He realized that in all his time working with glass, he had never really acknowledged the elements he was working with, much less considered the potential for discourse.
I thought of the powerful energies that emanate in the process of transforming earth into glass. Earth must go through the fire to become his creation. I suddenly had a new appreciation for my paints, realizing this too was earth in my hands.
We ARE alive in a living world – ALL is part and parcel of this energy in motion. And, through our vibration, we are connected to every single Thing. We are SO FAR from being alone! And, just as we yearn to be seen, so does every Thing want to be acknowledged and recognized.
To all my relations, as we reach for our highest aspiration, may we remember that no creation is possible without the Earth and all of the elements that are provided for us. May we acknowledge with our deepest gratitude every Thing that has come forward to us in this moment of time to become One with our new creation.
In lak’ech, I am another you
