MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Galactic Tones of every trecena establish a good orderly direction for anything we might hope to accomplish. Before rushing ahead with a new idea, Tone 2 encourages us to take our time. This is a day to consider the pros and cons, the effort required, and most importantly… what we would invest to bring something new into being.
“WHY” is one of the most important questions we can consider. We are most capable of manifesting that which we love, because love fuels the passion that’s needed to see something through.
THE TRECENA OF FLINT/ETZNAB
2 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. (More on the trecena guide.)
Womb of Re-Creation: Day 2
The Flint/ETZNAB trecena is leading us to the rebirth of ourselves. As Flint is capable of revealing the truth, our highest intention will be to see the truth of who we are and to cast off that which isn’t of our own nature. This cycle calls us to define who we would be.
Storm/CAUAC guides us to cherish what is important and to find our security and happiness apart from the chaos of the world. When we anchor ourselves to our own truth we carry a sanctuary within.
Our purpose for living can be found from our own definition of happiness. We are offered the Sacred Right of Choice. If we unconsciously conform to values that aren’t our own, a lifetime could pass without ever really knowing who we could be. Storm/CAUAC connects us to the forces of nature that reveal a beautiful display as a result of their unbridled freedom.
To all my relations, may we consider who we really are. May our eyes be opened to the gifts we bring to the world when we dare to follow our own road.
