MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
9 Seed / KAN
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
The Peak Energy of Tone 9 calls for our patience to see a broader perspective. We could miss the Higher Purpose of what we are learning, by not looking more deeply into our own Inspiration.
Seed/KAN holds the dynamic potential for us to create something new. We are guided by Seed/KAN to see our place as co-creators in the world. And, we are called to participate in the Earth magic that transforms a Seed from a dormant grain into a full-grown living thing.
Seed holds the evidence of the miracles all around us. Some seeds are so small they can barely been seen, yet within the tiny seed is encoded thousands of pages of information that define what it will be. When seed is given the right conditions it begins its miraculous transformation into something millions of times greater than itself.
Could we even imagine this is possible, if we hadn’t seen the miracle for ourselves?
Seed is a symbol that reflects who We Are. The Maya revered Corn as the symbol of all the people in all the colors we are. And the Tzolk’in of 260 days reflects the gestation cycle of corn that is correspondent with Human gestation.
Like the seed, we are growing to become exponentially greater than we are in our beginning. And, like the seed, the monumental process of our growth is barely recognizable from one day to the next. Our Faith needed to Manifest our Highest Aspiration will rest in the Worthiness we Believe is held in our Intention – the Seed we plant.
The Cherokee Day Sign, the Dragon, is the Corn Spirit, which symbolizes the duality of the Corn Mother and Maiden, holding the power of fertility and pro-creation for each generation. A single seed of corn holds the power of fertility and abundance to multiply itself to reproduce a whole garden within a single generation. The “dragon energy” of Seed is the Holy Fire of Creation that generates our Spiritual Harvest.
The Dragon offers the capability to “See Clearly.” Seed encourages our “profound investigations” into self. We are asked to consider the Seeds we would sow. We must cultivate our garden, gathering what is needed and clearing away the debris of our past. Tone 9 asks us to see the Rest of the Truth about our Self.
Seed holds the potential to affect future generations… the Power to Change the World. 8 Night/AKBAL showed us how to Heal Our Self, yet we only addressed the Fault We Know We Deny… those closest to our own Experience. From the broader perspective of Tone 9, we would consider Mother Earth and the Whole of Humanity as a Higher Purpose of Intention.
The chaos of the world is the reflection of our Own Darkness. We are also self-serving, taking more than we give. We are also dishonest, covering up the darkest truth about our Self. And, we also leave our footprint on Mother Earth. When we can accept the Truth that the outer darkness is our collective reflection, we hold the Power to Heal the World.
Seed/KAN connects us to the Heartbeat of the Earth. As a Day Sign of the South, KAN relates to our relationships with one another and with the Natural World. Holding the Power of Reproduction and Germination, Tone 9 asks us to plant the Seed of Forgiveness on behalf of Mother Earth and all the Corn People.
To all my relations, may we have the Patience on Tone 9 for Seed/KAN to reveal the Higher Purpose of our Way of Forgiveness. As we lay down the blame that sees only the fault in others, we would cry the Tears of Forgiveness to Heal the World. As we evaluate the worthiness of this Intention, there’s no doubt our Seed would serve the Highest Intention of the Creator. We would take our own place among the people, full-grown by a Seed of Sacred Wisdom, to become the Old Ones who preserve New Sacred Wisdom, the Inheritance for Future Generations.
In lak’ech, I am another you

9 Seed/KAN (Cherokee, Dragon/ UKTE’NA O’STO)
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.
Seed/KAN: Family, sexual activity and the magic of germination are the characteristics of this sun sign. Natural net workers, Seed people strive to free themselves and others from debt or oppressive patterns of the past. Abundance is gathered by Seeds as if with a cast net. Seed persons are public defenders who work toward uniting community by discovering hidden traps and secret influences of others. To generate true abundance, Seed must learn to appreciate all gifts and lessons received and conduct profound investigations into its self. In the absence of gratefulness and the courage to face oneself, Seed finds itself in less than less fertile environments.
Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA O’STO: Dragon’s symbol is Draco winding between the Little Dipper and Big Dipper. Dragon is the Corn Spirit, symbol of dual personality of Corn Mother and Maiden. Fertility and pro-creation from generation to generation. The word dragon means ” eye, to look at, to see clearly”. Spirit brings energy of Lawgiver, Justice, vigilance and protective, loyal unto death. Ley lines in China are “dragon lines”, energy is sometimes called “orgone energy”, pyramid power or magnetic force. Pyramids and kivas are collector portals for this energy, known as vortexes. Dragon energy beats a path everywhere, stirring things up with a big stick in tune with the beat of the drum, heartbeat of the Earth.
