MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S BLOG
On Tone 1 we were opened to a DIVINE Inspiration. 1 Star/LAMAT offered the Ether of a Dream, an idea of something we would Love being Multiplied to Abundance. Led by the Day Sign of “pure luck,” we might dare to Dream a Higher Dream.
On Tone 2 we are separated from the Whole for a Discernment of Duality and a Choice of “to be, or not to be.” Human reasons by comparison. Our first response to the Dream comes from our Lower Consciousness. We see all the reasons why we are more or less suited to the task. We have to face all the ways we feel we are different, more challenged, or less capable than someone else. This is a day when we long to be “enough” – in Oneness with the Whole.
The glyph illustrates a single drop of water suspended above the whole. Through an Offering, we Raise our Self up to be seen by the Creator. Seen through the eyes of Unconditional Love, we are restored to Oneness. Restored to Harmony, we send ripples of Love through the Whole.
Offering/MULUC holds the Power to bring a Healing to our Emotions. Today we are called to Acknowledge and Honor our Feelings, and to respect the Feelings of Others. MULUC calls for an Offering from our Heart. This is a day to make things right – to Pay Back and Pay Forward.
The 13th Uinal empowers our ability to draw upon the help of Divine Agency through Ritual and Sacred Ceremony. Our Rituals and Sacred Ceremony mark a Time and Place of Divine Consciousness. Through an Offering of Atonement we enter into a Communion with the Creator.
Offering/MULUC is a symbol of water everywhere from the cosmos to our own tears. Water is the Element capable of holding the Ether of Spirit. MULUC is a Day Sign holding the Element of Fire. A Blessing of Holy Water offers us a Divine Purification to restore equilibrium from an undercurrent of emotion and our fear of hidden dangers.
Our most cherished Dream can be the one most frightening to reach for. I wanted to reject my own Inspired Idea for something easier. Though, I’m at a loss for any other idea. I see my own resistance in feeling totally incapable of making this Dream Come True. Even though I know the first step, I feel powerless to face what might require many steps, and still end in total failure. I’ve failed before. It’s a Dream of Divine Justice that feels beyond the reach of my own Hands.
Our Sense of Brokenness is the Divine Message the Creator waits to Hear. Within our Deepest Sorrow lies our Human Experience of Injustice that would draw an Emotional Healing. Through Divine Discernment, our Higher Self we will Know how Blessed we Already Are. We always Receive More than we Give.
I find Joy in having shelter and a bed with cotton sheets. I did nothing to deserve so much more than millions go without.
Another requirement of our Offering is that we surrender to the Experience and the Outcome. We haven’t really surrendered, as long as we are attached to our expectation of “success.” There are many ways to accomplish the same thing. What we might experience as a step backwards will lead in the right direction when we are Aligned with the Intentions of the Creator.The Cherokee Day Sign, The River, calls us to let go of the fears and expectations of our Lower Self and to move as one in a Divine Flow. We only have to “let go” of our own Free Will to be carried to the Ocean – the place where the Ether of every Spirit is rejoined as One.
To all my relations, today we’re called to make a Sacred Offering of our Self. May we offer our thanks for our Blessings that are Multiplied to Abundance. May we Acknowledge a Loving Creator who knows what we would Love, and commit ourselves to Offering the First and Best of what we can Bring to a new effort of Spiritual Growth. May we be willing to make sacrifices for Others for the intention of Paying Back and Paying Forward. May we Open our Heart to share our Hopes and Fears, that we might receive a Blessing of Divine Discernment – a Knowing that we are Unconditionally Loved and Unblemished in the eyes of the Creator. May we offer our Hands to the Creator, and surrender our Dream to be Manifest as a Blessing to the Whole.
In lak’ech, I am another You

MY FAVORITE STORY OF “LETTING GO”
from “Illusions” by Richard Bach
Once there lived a village of creatures along the bottom of a great crystal river. The current of the river swept silently over them all — young and old, rich and poor, good and evil — the current going its own way, knowing only its own crystal self.
Each creature in its own manner clung tightly to the twigs and rocks of the river bottom, for clinging was their way of life, and resisting the current was what each had learned from birth.
But one creature said at last, “I am tired of clinging. Though I cannot see it with my eyes, I trust that the current knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let it take me where it will. Clinging, I shall die of boredom.”
The other creatures laughed and said, “Fool! Let go, and that current you worship will throw you tumbled and smashed against the rocks, and you will die quicker than boredom!”
But the one heeded them not, and taking a breath did let go, and at once was tumbled and smashed by the current across the rocks.
Yet in time, as the creature refused to cling again, the current lifted him free from the bottom, and he was bruised and hurt no more.
And the creatures downstream, to whom he was a stranger, cried, “See a miracle! A creature like ourselves, yet he flies! See the messiah, come to save us all!”
And the one carried in the current said, “I am no more messiah than you. The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare let go. Our true work is this voyage, this adventure.”
But they cried the more, “Savior!” all the while clinging to the rocks, and when they looked again he was gone, and they were left alone making legends of a savior.

2 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
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.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
