MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On the Holy Day of the trecena of Unconditional Love, Earth/CABAN is exalted by Tone 8’s Intention of Divine Justice. The Day Sign that led the last trecena always returns on the Holy Day of the following trecena. Our Ascension from Earth/CABAN made a new Transformation possible from Higher Ground. Tone 8 always draws on the Wisdom we learned before.
Human is different than any other creation, given our own dominion and authority. While other Living Creatures are bound by Instinct, Human was the only Creation that can Choose a Spiritual Transformation.
Our Transformation of Love is even Greater than our Will to be happy or joyful. Through an Intention of Love, Human is capable to be Transformed so that Love becomes a Natural Way of Being. By Choice, we can be Gifted with a Divine Instinct of Love.
Earth/CABAN is the Creator’s Gift of Sustenance, the Source of all Wisdom, the Elements of Every Thing, and the final Resting Place where again we would Become One. Earth’s Water, holding the Ether of Spirit, fills our body and we Breathe Life from Her air. The Maya believe the Earth Breathes the Consciousness of Spirit for all living and non-living creations. They believe that when Hearts Beat in Harmony with the Earth’s Forces of Nature, Human would Awaken the Divinity of their own Souls.
Tone 8 is the Peak Energy of Divine Justice and the beginning of the trecena’s Cycle of Transformation. As we descend from a pyramid, an Unseen Power of Spirit draws us to a new Transformation of Consciousness. Our Transformation is a Permanent Change. Through a new Wisdom of Truth, we forever see something in a different way. We can’t “un-see what we’ve seen.” The day observed as the Holy Day of the trecena holds the Creator’s Highest Intention that our Quest of Love would always lead us to the Justice of Harmony and Equity.
Divine Agency is the Unseen Force that leads us through the rest of our Quest. Our Transformation is the Demonstration of Divine Presence that would Awaken our Soul.
The Day Signs reflect the Divine Aspects of Spirit that lead us through. The Day Signs that guided an Intention of Spirit are on the path behind us and always there to turn to. As we are Drawn to Divine Wisdom, the Day Signs of Divine Agency join our Journey. I imagine them walking with us side-by-side. To affect our Transformation they point to our own Experiences, helping us to look deeper and from different perspectives. Our experiences are impermanent in their influence, until we have drawn the deeper meaning of their Wisdom. The ideas that inspire us are lost by distraction until we hold an Intention to follow through.
Earth/CABAN reminds us of the Spirit of Consciousness held in all things. Mother Earth does more than just provide our sustenance. She is perpetually moving us to our next Experience. Earth is a symbol of Movement, the Sign of Life. The Creator set the world spinning with a Divine Intention, Energy, and Vibration. As we seek connection with Mother Earth, her Heartbeat is the Pure Vibration of the Creator’s Love that would draw our own Vibration into Sympathy.
Tone 8 only asks that we Open our Hearts and offer our Attention to receive a new Awareness. Divine Justice will be administered by an Unseen Force. Joy was meant to become a part of Every Journey. Love is the Power and our Gratitude is the Magic we were given to transform Every Experience into Divine Wisdom.
With each new Transformation we can see more of the Beauty in each Step of the Journey. We can know that whatever circumstances we face, the challenge itself is Divine Evidence of a Higher Transformation in progress. Our Divine Nature is to seek Understanding and Wisdom. Each new day on Earth is a Sacred Event, presenting Experience to be Transformed into New Wisdom. We are called to embrace the Dawn of a New Awakening.
The Life we Live is ours to choose. We can live a life of Beauty by simply loving one another and ourselves. Though, something more happens when we Acknowledge the Creator as the Giver and our Lives as holding a Divine Purpose. We were created for the Purpose of Relationship through which we would be Transformed. We set our own Transformation Spinning through a Choice to live in Sympathy with the Creator’s Highest Intention.
To all my relations, as we are drawn into a Higher Energy of Movement, we can look back to 4 Reed/BEN who showed us a way of stability is down on our knees in Humility. The Jaguar and the Eagle still offer the Magic of Gratitude and the Gift of Higher Vision through which to see our Experiences. May we open our Hearts in Faith and Surrender to Divine Will. May we Acknowledge the Creator as the Giver of Mother Earth, and her Movement as a Vibration of the Creator’s Love she shares. Turning to the Magic of the Jaguar, may we Sense the Truth of the Mother’s Beating Heart by her Movements. May we Look for it in a gentle breeze, Sense her Vibration beneath our feet, and Recognize her movement by the Sun, Clouds and Stars in the Sky. May we Honor the Living Consciousness of Everything that is One in her Movement.
Easter Blessings – May the Easter Holiday remind us that God Walks on Earth when a Human of Divine Consciousness sacrifices itself as a Living Vessel. By an indwelling of Holy Spirit, the Christ demonstrated a Way of Divine Relationship. Just as we seek to See through the Eyes of God, so does the Creator desire to be an Indwelling Spirit that can see through the Eyes of Human. In our Highest State of Consciousness our Eyes would reflect the Pure Love of the Creator, and the Holy Consciousness of All Creation. “As Above, So Below” is the Intention of Divine Justice.
in lak’ech, I am another you

THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the DOG/OC trecena.
8 Earth/Caban (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 8: Harmony and balance are the intent of eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below.” From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “neat freaks”.
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.
Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way.
“The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hall)
