9 Earth / CABAN – A Journey as One: Day 9

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 is an important day in the process of our new Transformation. We may have already seen the evidence of our changes in process. Tone 9 calls for our Patience with a warning of “suffering” if we don’t look deeper.  The suffering we might hope to avoid is likely something Already Self-Imposed. By looking more deeply into the implications of what we are learning, we can be released from a suffering we already carry.

ALL our suffering can be healed by Mother Earth. Among our greatest challenges is the Sense we are all alone, different from the rest, and never sure what the next day might bring. Mother Earth is the heavenly body that carries us. Our Place in the Universe is in the womb of this Mother. Earth/CABAN is a day when we would find our comfort in hearing her beating heart.

Earth/CABAN brings us into Oneness with the Forces of Nature. We are able to see our connection in the continuing flow of life, through personal, planetary, and universal cycles of life, death and regeneration. Peak Tone 9 asks for us to look at the bigger picture.

The Cherokee Heron is a symbol of perpetual movement. As the world turns no one day is like another. The experiences of today will never return in exactly the same way. When we face a similar situation again, we will approach it in a new way.

Earth/CABAN draws us to look at our own change over time. We haven’t stayed the same. If we look to our own history, we can see troubles that seemed too big to overcome are now resolved in the memories of our past. What, at one time, may have felt like an insurmountable problem, may even appear as a small accomplishment to us now. CABAN is a symbol of the Knowledge we gain through our movement and experience. This is a good day to seek wise counsel and to draw new wisdom from our Intellect.

7 Earth / CABAN – Recreating our World: Day 7

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 is the Peak of a new Spiritual Climb.  The Monkey/CHUEN trecena guides us as the Day Sign that sees the beauty in all things. We are brought into balance by an expanded perception of our Mother Earth. Being One and the Same as her children, the Earth offers an expanded perception of our Self.

At the top of the pyramid we can see the beauty of the Earth in every direction. We could remember how beautifully she balances the days and the seasons of the Natural World. Our Oneness with the Mother means that we are also moved through a Divinely Balanced perpetual course of Change.

Each new dawn we are awakened by new Light, and each season we are called to a new Divine Purpose of Being. A new season is Calling us Back to Life and to a new generation of Understanding.

13 Earth / CABAN – Ascension: Day 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Earth / CABAN

13 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13 of Ascension, the Serpent completes a Transformation of Spirit. At a new summit, we can see everything that could be.

Learning that Manifestation is Accomplished by the Power of our Imagination, we hold the unlimited possibility of Creation. We are capable to transform our entire experience of Living.

We walked between two worlds. Which one was real? We are Spiritual Beings having a Human Experience. Our Highest Spiritual Examples are the Ascended Masters who transcended in Life to the Realm of Spirit.

The Highest Horizon we could reach for is still beyond our Imagination. Yet, guided by Sense over Reason, what else might we expect as the final destination of a Spiritual Journey of Reaching for Oneness with the Creator?

THE WAYEB: Today begins the 19th month of the Haab (or Chol Ab’) calendar. The Haab is the solar calendar of 365 days used primarily for agriculture. The Haab is made of 18 months of 20 days, and a 19th month of 5 days, known as the Wayeb. Today is the first day of 5 days before the arrival of the Haab New year, February 20, 2017 (5 Wind/IK). The Wayeb is a time of special ceremonies and prayers for a new cycle of harvest. The Tzolk’in and Haab are linked energy cycles, given the Haab tracks the solstices, equinoxes, and seasons of Mother Earth, which directly influence the Human. A traditional Mayan date shows at least the Tzolk’in day and the Haab day, when sets a date in precision with the Haab 52-year cycle of 18980 days.

“The Wayeb is sometimes called “the time of no time,” a period of retreat and reflection on the year ending, and also time for clearing unfinished business. The Elders say that what we do on these 5 days of the Wayeb will affect our life in the coming year. This is Sacred Time to reinforce our communion with The Ancestors. It is also a time for spiritual cleansing, asking forgiveness for our mistakes, paying debts, and letting go of thoughts and feelings that are in lower vibration. This would be a time for cleaning the house and for throwing away old and broken things. This is a time of offerings and to help those who need help.” * Jen Soto

8 Earth/Caban – Life Source

8 Earth/Caban (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

8 Earth/CABAN

8 Earth/CABAN

Galactic Tone 8: Harmony and balance are the intent of eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “neat freaks”.

Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way.

“The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hail)

Life Source

Tone 8 brings harmony and balance to our world of Earth/CABAN. Inspired by Wisdom/CIB, we can now draw on ancient wisdom to bring new order to our lives and new balance to our relations. Returned to the source of our beginnings, once again we can draw from the ‘knowing’ that we are all connected. The path of nature carries us through our lives and around again to its beginning to transform us into something new.

Earth’s energy is a source we may draw upon to anchor our Spirit center. In traditional practice this may be done by setting sacred shrines in each of the 4 directions, each the same distance from the Center (your home or a sacred space). A stone or other medicine object is buried in the Earth at each location with the blessing of cornmeal, tobacco, water, and prayers offered to the ancestors and to the 4 directions. All sacred ceremony may be performed in practice, or by intention in Spirit. The most powerful sacred ceremonies are the ones we create for ourselves.

To all my relations, may I be given new eyes to see the blessings of Mother Earth – so that I may honor the beauty that surrounds me in every direction, and the sustenance and source of every living thing.
