MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 carries the Intention of Stability and presents a source of orientation. 4 represents the 4 directions, and the cube – the most stable forms, defined by the dimensions of height, length, depth and breadth. Tone 4 helps to set the parameters, freedoms, and conditions upon which we may manifest our new Intention.
Transformer/CIMI is a signal of a major life change. CIMI can present us with a new understanding of the experience of change as we set ourselves on a course to something new. The Akbal trecena would draw our attention to CIMI’s Spiritual Gift of Clairvoyance.
Those born as CIMI were assigned the role as helper to those in the process of life transitions, including birth and death. CIMI’s gift is sensing the future, offering comfort by knowing what to expect and exactly what to do in the moment.
The CIMI glyph depicts Death, reflecting that something dies as something new is born. We are always changed by our new experiences. CIMI offers us the freedom to let go of something in our past. CIMI shares its clarity of vision to help us see our process of change as good and necessary.
Transformer/CIMI can help us to anticipate the chaos of change. Whenever we reach for something Unknown, there’s potential for some confusion. Our Ego’s auto-response to change is fear and uncertainty of what may come. CIMI offers a Wisdom of Spirit, knowing that these feelings are natural and that chaos is the evidence of a new change in process.
We can find deeper understanding by considering CIMI’s role as the midwife. CIMI stands by, knowing what to anticipate next. CIMI is said to lead with a “soft hand” that would bring comfort and reassurance. We are encouraged to let go, allowing change to run its course, knowing we are under the care of a Divine Agency that knows exactly what to do. CIMI also helps us to hold the vision of our Dream. Our chaos will be easier to navigate as we remember our Higher Purpose.
Our surrender of the past is within the parameters of what we must always do when we reach for something new. By definition, “new” means something we’ve never experienced and have no Wisdom to fall back on. We will find our stability through a Leap of Faith in Wisdom Higher than our own. By sharing the gift of Clairvoyance, CIMI offers Peace through a Sense that we will instinctively know what to do.
Tone 4 helps us to see Change as a Stable and Constant aspect of our Dynamic Quality of Being. The Truth is that we are always changing. Each day we are given a new field for discovery. Each new Awareness presents a new filter through which to see both our future and our past. Truth we discovered long ago is subject to change as we see it through the Wisdom of new experience.
Today we can be on alert for old ways of thinking. As we are presented with the fear of our Ego, we are given something to fall back on. Fear is our signal to turn to the understanding of our Higher Self – to look squarely into the eyes of our own fear so it may be revealed as only an illusion. We are no longer the person we were before. We have new tools to rely on. Our growing Consciousness of a Divine Plan makes possible a new Leap of Faith.
I can relate this Leap of Faith to major changes in my life. I remember the discomfort at beginning a new job. There were a few job changes in the 1980’s as a major time of change. Jobs were scarce with a 10% rate of unemployment. Though I had the skills, there was a fear of whether I would be capable to perform. Fear was compounded as a single-parent with 2 children, surviving solely on my own resources. I remember adopting a strategy of allowing myself a two-week period of total ignorance. I planned for chaos in a Leap of Faith that the Unknown would be made clear.
CIMI shows us that the way through our chaos is to let our old fears die. We can thank our Ego for its input, acknowledging that our Faith lies in something our Ego can’t see. We can stabilize our course by facing our fears of failure. Instead of shutting down or running away, we can see fear as a signal calling for a deeper inspection.
CIMI knows that when we master the process of change, every Dream we hold dear moves into a Higher Realm of Possibility. AKBAL guides us forward to an Experience of Spirit, as the Knowing our confusion is only the newness between our old Point A and a new Point B.
To all my relations, may we see that every Dream requires the courage to face the Unknown. May we see our fear and discomfort as only an automatic response of the Ego. May we face our Ego’s sense of Fear with a Leap of Faith. As we reflect on our Dynamic Nature, may we see how our Wisdom of Change will set the parameters for anything we would ever hope to accomplish. May we also acknowledge our Right to Change, knowing those around us will also experience some chaos by expecting us to stay the same. May we have the courage to be misunderstood and to make mistakes, knowing this is a natural part of learning something new.
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, TAKATO’KA)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability. Four is the cube the most stable of all forms, and the establishment of volume by definition. The four directions give orientation to any form as the height, length, depth and breadth give shape to any form. The energy of Four sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.
Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.
