MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Our crystallization is nearly completed as we are nearing the end of the core days. This 20-day uinal is led under the guidance of our “primordial mother” Crocodile/IMIX. We’ve been shown the details of our design and our connectedness with the whole.
Tone 9 asks for our patience to see there is something more for us to know. Beyond the elements of our design, the most important detail of our creation has yet to be revealed… the reason Why.
THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
9 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
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.)
Crystallization of Spirit Day 9
My thoughts keep returning to the annual migration of the Monarch butterfly and how the lifetimes of four generations are needed to complete the trip. Each butterfly is born, knowing their own leg of a larger journey. (Article on the Inspiration Page)
With patience our purpose and direction will be made clear. Storm/CAUAC reminds us of home – the place we feel safe and secure. Here, lightning’s power is not seen as a threat, but a source of nourishment and an inspiration of beauty.
God’s greatest ability lies in the power of Creation… the giver of Life, Love, and Light. As Divine Sparks we are extensions of a Divine Creator bringing beauty to the world.
To all my relations, may we stop to consider all the beauty of the world and see how we were created to carry on the work of our Creator.
