MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 13 we Ascend from our our Quest of Love as something new. We realize a new capability that will empower new possibilities.
Wind/IK renews Life and Spirit through a Holy Breath that connects us all, and upon which our Wings of Spirit can carry us to the Divine. On our Ascension from the Dog/OC trecena that raised a new Consciousness of Love, we can see that with every Breath we draw Unconditional Love and new Consciousness from the Whole of Creation.
Our Ascension is a place of new horizons. With the help of a Divine Agency, we’ve been raised up to see the potential for a Higher Climb. This is a day to celebrate the Truth of a new accomplishment that transformed our way of Being.
The Cherokee Day Sign the Whirlwind represents the 13th Dancer, the leader of the 12 constellations of the “bird dancers” in the sky. Seen as the double-helix that carries the smoke of our prayers to the Creator, Whirlwind leads the Dance of Life and the Communion of Divine Spirits.
On the Tone 13 of Ascension, we may experience a new Sense of our Self. We are able to see ourselves as destined for Greater Things. As observed by the K’iche Maya, a new 260-day cycle of transformation began at the New Year of 8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’atz). Our first new trecena was led by Earth/CABAN. The Creator’s first Intention of Transformation was to reveal the Gift of Mother Earth as the Source for everything we need to survive and Live Life in a Good Way. The Creator’s next most important Knowing was the Revelation of a Divine Love… the Gift we would live to exchange in the world. We were meant to see how through an Intention of Love we hold the Power to Create our own experience of Living.
As Human Beings distracted from the Beauty we hold, we often don’t recognize the Truth of our Blessings until they are gone. I remember a conversation with someone I’d just met a few years ago. I’d just lost a close friend and was sharing an experience of her Spirit’s visitation. I never expected it to be a bone of contention. I was told that “we live, we die, and that’s all there is, and any other such assessment was no more than pure fantasy.”
It left an impression and gave me much to think about. I imagined the world as it would be if that was my own Truth. I thought of how little there would be to live for… as a place where the Power of Love held no lasting power at all. I didn’t even have to reconsider my own Truth to know I would rather live in MY version of the world – a place alive with all possibility. I realized my own Conscious Choice that MY world would always be the place I would choose to live in.
We are given our own Free Will to choose the world of our own Creation. We can feel the “solid ground” of our own creation lies somewhere between that “nothing” and the Truth born of our own Consciousness. While I struggle with my own Inner Belief of our TRUE Power of Being, what I now Know to be True for myself, is a long way from that “nothing.”
This is the Power of an Ascension. By establishing small truths of personal experience, we begin to see that “if this is True, then the world Must Hold unlimited possibility.” We could finally see ourselves as co-creators with God, given the Power to Create an entire world of our own making. Our Power rests in our alignment with the Intention of our Creation. There were no limited placed on the Creator’s Unconditional Love and the Gifts we were Given.
At Galactic Tone 13, we stand on Higher Ground with a whole New Horizon of Possibilities. We are reborn with new Life, new Inspiration, new Love and Power. We are empowered to Dream a Higher Dream. If we are able to Create our own Experience of Love we have the Power to Co-create a World of Peace and Harmony, the Creator’s Highest Intention of Divine Justice.
Like a rite of passage, we have accomplished what was necessary for a new Initiation. Our attention is drawn to the Wind, that carries the Voice of the Creator. The IK glyph illustrates the portals cut in stone through which the Maya watched the movement of stars and listened for the Voice of all Creation. Today we can look and listen for the Wind, seeing that the Creator’s presence swirls within and without. As it carries our prayers to the Creator, so can it touch us with a palpable response.
13 is the magical Number of Creation. We can remember the whole of creation wasn’t a single event. There was a Divine Reason for the 7 Days and 6 Nights. The total 13 represents a process and a cycle through which a World of Divine Connection was born. Through Sacred Ceremony, we create a time and place of Consciousness where we can See and Be Seen. Both the Creator and the Creation offer us the Breath of New Life – a new “I Am,” given the Choice to fly in a realm of possibility as big as the sky.
To all my relations, may we celebrate a new way of Being that we see in our Self. May we know that even our smallest accomplishments of new Spiritual Truth can all be drawn together to affect a Higher Purpose. The Truth is too Awesome for us to Comprehend, so it is revealed to us through small but permanent changes. May we accept that a Quest of Love was the way of the Creator to lead us to the Highest Truth of Human, knowing that Love is the Experience that elevates our Divine Wisdom. May we give thanks for the Living World that is made of our own Choosing. As we are risen to a new level of Consciousness, may a new Passion be Born on Possibilities that are are evidenced, but still yet to be seen and experienced. May we create a Sacred Time and Place to Kneel in Humility to stabilize what we See. May we draw the Breath of Love, and in the place between breaths, may we crystallize the Truth that we are Seen by the Whole of Creation as our new “I Am.”
Tonight we may Dream Akbal Dreams from the Void of All Possibility.
in lak’ech, I am another you

13 Wind/IK (Cherokee Whirlwind Agalu’ga)
Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.
Wind/IK: Breath of spirit, breath of life. Winds embody the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. They are dreamers and planners with powerful imaginations. Wind persons make great orators and they spread the word of spiritual inspiration as if carried by the wind. Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change. As the wind, these persons are extremely changeable and adaptable. They may appear inconsistent and fickle to others. Wind can be destructive to self and others by put on airs. When wind strut and boast, expanding on facts and accomplishments, they are building the dark clouds of trouble that may become hurricanes.
Cherokee, Whirlwind Agalu’ga: The Cherokee symbol of the whirlwind is a double spiral helix in rising smoke and related to the direction of the North. In Cherokee, the constellations are represented by 12 birds (dancers) and the 13th bird is the Whirlwind, the lead dancer.
