3 Night / AKBAL – A New Dawning: Day 3 of 13


3 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

Our Sacred Intentions are the guiding light of Creation. While other living things create by instinct, Human’s power of creation must be led by a Choice. Our power to create lies in an application of Free Will. Human is always creating. Distracted, we wander from one creation to the next, seeking only to manifest the needs of the moment. It’s no wonder we feel like we’re going nowhere in our state of unconsciousness.

When we hold a Sacred Intention we set a course for movement through time. We are led forward in our Transformation of Consciousness when we focus on an intention that we would manifest in the future. Our deliberate Intentions to create a Dream that would bless the Whole, serves as a Divine Purpose for Being and offers a Meaning for our Life that transcends the moment. Our Intentions become the Light that Shines from our future.

Night/AKBAL is the Light that Shines in the darkness of the unknown. Tone 3 motivates us to take action on the Dream we imagined. As we take a first material step toward our Dream we establish a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B.” A Dream inspired from the Spiritual Plane, emerges into the Physical Plane of existence by our first Movement of Intention. Movement brings Life to a Dream that lies in our future. We Create the Voice of AKBAL that speaks to us from a Dream as we Plant a Seed of a Creation in another place and time.

9 Night / AKBAL – Flight of Higher Vision: Day 9


9 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 9 is a day of Peak Energy that completes an elevation of Consciousness. Tone 9 offers us the Patience to consider a new Understanding from a broader perspective. As Humans we draw Wisdom from our own Experience, though a Higher Truth can be discovered when we consider how our Truth applies to the Whole.

Night/AKBAL is the Day Sign that speaks to us in our Dreams. Through a direct communication of Spirit, our Wisdom can be expanded by a Divine Perspective.

The Eagle/MEN trecena initiates our intuitive ability to see into the future. The Eagle is considered a sign of success in business, based on a higher perspective and long-range vision. Eagle plots the shortest course to its prey, intuitively discerning its navigation and timing to a moving object.

Eagle leads the “first leg” of a journey to the Highest Ascension of the Tzolk’in round… our journey through the 13th Uinal of Ascension. The Eagle/MEN trecena is our final cycle of “Light” (Inspiration) for a Flight we will make on our Own. Star/LAMAT is the final trecena, a cycle of “Darkness.” The “Light” will be “turned off” for us to apply the Sum of our own Truth to effect an Ascension of Divine Wisdom. Stars emit their own Light. Star/LAMAT leads a Transformation to a Personification of Light.

9 Night/AKBAL is the final Peak Day of the Eagle trecena, and the day that prepares us for our Highest Climb ahead. “The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.” AKBAL completes our Transformation with an in-pouring of Light.

2 Night / AKBAL – Living as a Creator: Day 2


2 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

At Tone 1 we began the trecena in unity. Wind/IK would inspire an Intention for an experience of our own Power of Creation. Tone 2 is a day of discernment that draws focus back to our Self. Our first experience was a Communion within, between our Higher Self and a Divine Source of Inspiration.

Tone 2 is the day our Higher Self engages with the Ego. Our Lower Self would express the challenges we would expect to face. Our Higher Self would share all the possibilities. Together, they negotiate an Intention of “to be, or not to be.”

Put in charge of our own Creative Force, this is a day when our Higher Self can discern the fears of the Lower Self. As we question our ability to create the change we most desire, we have an opportunity to preview the illusions of the Ego that our Higher Self must overcome to accomplish our next move to Higher Ground.

Night/AKBAL presents us with the Power to Dream. Akbal is the Voice of Spirit that speaks to us in our Dreams. The glyph illustrates a place of darkness with curtains pulled back to reveal a source of Light. Night demonstrates a Way of Discernment on Tone 2, as a Choice to Turn to the Light, the Truth that is already known by our Higher Self.

8 Night / AKBAL – Path of Higher Learning: Day 8


8 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena bringing the Intention of Divine Justice. We’ve been led by CIB, the Old Ones who hold the sum of all Wisdom from their experiences of living on Earth. The Gift they offer on Their Holy Day is a Breakthrough of Divine Wisdom.

This CIB trecena of Higher Learning builds on the Truths of the Akbal trecena we just completed. Night/AKBAL is the Day Sign of Spirit, which called a Higher Awareness to the Voice of Spirit that speaks in our Dreams. Akbal reminds us that a light is always shining in our darkness. On the Holy Tone 8, Akbal is exalted as the Holy Spirit within that connects us to the Consciousness of the Creator.

We were given a Keynote Address by CIB about the wealth of knowledge we hold within, and we learned how Mother Earth holds the answers to everything we need to know. Earth is the reflection of who we are, and the provider of every experience upon which we live and draw Wisdom. We learned we don’t have to go searching for an “acre of diamonds” that lie directly under our feet.

One Most Important Truth the Old Ones would want us to Know will be shared as a Spiritual Experience. Night/AKBAL is a Blue Day Sign of the West that touches our Emotions. As we’ve looked at the “equal and opposite” ways of Spirit, our hearts will be broken to receive a Divine Healing.

Portal days thin the veil to other dimensions. The Element of Ether will magnify the Voice of Spirit and our connection to the Old Ones. On the Holy Day of Tone 8, our Divine Discernment will be open to accept a Healing Truth about Ourselves.

1 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13 Days…

On 1 Night/AKBAL we begin a new 13-day cycle of creation. Night will lead us on a Journey to the Void, the Place where all Potential Lies. Night/AKBAL offers Light to our Divine Destiny and Life Purpose, revealing the deepest desires of our Unconscious Self. We begin a journey that will guide us to throw out every notion of our limitation… to Dream the BIG Dream.

Akbal empowers us with a limitless vision of who we are and what we may become. Over the course of the next 13-days, we will be guided to see how our dreams could really come true.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether – The Night/AKBAL trecena includes 3 Portal Days that will thin the veil to other dimensions. These are days when we are capable to Experience our Spiritual Gifts to feel the Presence of Divine Guidance that would guide us Dream a Bigger Dream of intention. On 2 Seed/KAN an open channel will draw Truth to our Power of Creation. On 7 Offering/MULUC we will be Balanced in the Truth that our Power to Manifest is a Mutual Effort that is supported by Divine Agency. On 10 Road/EB a Portal will help us see the Truth of a new manifestation.

10th UINAL: The Night/AKBAL trecena is held in the Higher Intention of the 10th Uinal of Manifestation. The Power of Tone 10 will be doubled by Uinal 10’s Higher Influence of Manifestation.

7 Night / AKBAL – Discovering Our Dynamic World: Day 7


7 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

At Tone 7 we reach the Peak of our Climb. Tones 1 through 6 represent the cycle of Spiritual Growth within each 13-day trecena. The Experiences that carried us here are the balancing measure for a Transformation guided by Divine Agency. Tone 7 holds the intention of Reflection. Given a 360 view from the top of a pyramid, we have a broader perspective on the Experiences that will serve to Define a New Truth.

We are greeted by Night/AKBAL, the Day Sign that Divides the Darkness from the Light. Night/AKBAL guides us through the Darkness that leads us to a New Day. As a symbol of Spirit that Speaks to us in our Dreams, AKBAL works to dispel our subconscious fears of the Unknown. Holding a Point of Light in the darkness, AKBAL holds the torch that would light our way.

13 Night / AKBAL – Ascension: Day 13


13 Night / AKBAL

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13 we Ascend to a Higher Level of Consciousness. As the Master of all Art, Monkey/CHUEN drew our attention to the Truth that we are the Artists of our own Life. When we are distracted by the challenges we face every day, we can return to the Beauty found in living in the moment. 13 is a Sacred Number associated with the Ascended Masters and the Creation of the World that was accomplished in 7 days and 6 nights.

Night/AKBAL is the Voice of Spirit that speaks to us in our Dreams. Night represents the Darkness of our Unknown. We are given the courage to willingly walk in the dark. What has yet to be seen or defined, holds the potential of All Possibility. The whole world was born from a place of darkness.

AKBAL is a Day Sign of the West, the direction of our Life Experience. Our Journey through Life is a walk in the dark. We never know what tomorrow may bring. The Cherokee Day Sign of the Hearth is the Sacred Fire that burns through the night. Even in our darkness we are given a Point of Light. Night is the “bringer of dawn” that will illuminate our way.

The West holds the Element of Water. As the substance that holds the Ether of our Spirit, Night/AKBAL brings a Consciousness that can be felt through our Emotions. A Voice of Spirit can be recognized as it touches our heart.

Night/AKBAL is said to bring light to all things hidden in darkness, dispelling our insecurities and doubts born of the sub-conscious mind. We are given the courage to face our unknown, knowing the Light of Spirit will always guide us. Under an Ascension guided by AKBAL, we become the Dreamers who Believe in our Dreams.

A Voice of Spirit may be recognized in our Dreams. We may awaken to thoughts on our mind, or we may hear a voice in a Day Dream. AKBAL makes us capable to recognize a Voice of Spirit as different from our own thoughts. We might realize this Inner Voice has been speaking to us all along. Once we can acknowledge it, it will become easier to hear. This is the purpose for raising our Consciousness. The richest part of our Human experience is something we can only experience when we are Conscious of our Self. Mystical experiences are possible as Night connects our intelligence and intuition.

Our Ascension is a Heavenly Celebration of a Closer Relationship with a Divine Spirit. With each new Transformation we anchor new faith in a Presence that is always with us. We can see the Promise of new Horizons given new courage to walk on through the dark.

To all my relations, may we be opened to recognize the Evidence of Spirit by a Voice that is capable to make its presence known. May we Know that our own prayers are raised into the Consciousness of our Creator. May we give thanks for the Light of a new Dawning where we can always see the presence of Light, even in our darkness.

in lak’ech, i am another you

13 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)


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.

Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void… a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.

Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night.
