7 Earth / CABAN – Witness to a Miracle: Day 7 of 13


7 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 is the place of Balance at the top of the pyramid where we’ve completed the climb of the Spiritual Growth phase of this trecena. Tone 7 represents the place where balance is created between the Above and Below.

The most ancient mystery teachings define this as the Principle of Correspondence. “As above, so below; as below, so above.” This principle embodies the Truth of a correspondence that exists  on the various planes of the material, mental, and spiritual universe as a Universal Law.

Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of the Movement and the Earth. Spinning on her axis, Mother Earth illustrates a “balancing act” that sustains her place in the universe. The Scale of Balance is a symbol of Justice that reflects Harmony and Equity.

The Universal Laws and Principles are Truths upon which we can make a discernment between the known and the unknown. Our outer behavior will always reflect the condition of our Spirit. And the condition of our Spirit will always be reflected through our behavior. This same law supports the Truth of Miracles. The Truth we claim in Spirit will be manifested on Earth.

Applying this principle we can see how our lives unfold as we expect them to. When we expect circumstances to unfold in a certain way, they will.  We can learn a lot about the circumstances of our lives by contemplating this Truth.

Master Number 77: This Intention of Balance is doubled and amplifed as 7 Earth/CABAN is the 7th Tone in the 7th uinal. Number 7 relates to our inner wisdom, intuition, contemplation and discernment, inner strength and tenacity, endurance and determination. 7 relates to our empathic and psychic abilities, spiritual enlightenment, development, and spiritual awakening. Number 77 is a sign from the Angels that our effort in Spirit is about to payoff and to keep up the good work. Number 7 relates to good fortune. Number 77 is a sign that we can expect Miracles in our Life. [Sacred Scribes]

5 Eagle / MEN – Witness to a Miracle: Day 5 of 13


5 Eagle / MEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 offers the Power to Create our Dreams. Number 5 resides at the Center of the cube. In acknowledging the 4 directions of the East, South, West and North, the 5th direction lies within as the center from which everything is created.

5 is the intelligent, organizing force that manages the application of our Monkey/CHUEN Power of Creation. 5 gathers what is needed to Create, through a process of investigation.

Eagle/MEN is the Day Sign of the Intermediary who raises us up for a heavenly view. Eagle is a Day Sign whose success is empowered by it’s ability to see into the distance of the future.

The Eagle is capable to see its next meal from over a mile away. It doesn’t catch its meal by hovering near it at close range. Locking its vision on the thing it wants, it takes off, relying on instinct and intuition to guide its course to the thing it focuses upon. Eagle/MEN shares a long-range guidance system made possible by Spiritual Vision. Guiding the Intention of Tone 5, Eagle makes creation possible by locking in on the destination of our Intention.

3 Reed / BEN – Witness to a Miracle: Day 3 of 13


3 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

The Monkey/CHUEN trecena is inspiring us to step into the shoes of a Divine Creator. The Tzolk’in, the calendar of Human’s transformation, reflects that seated at the center of every Human is a Spark of Unconditional Love and the Power to Create. They are seated on the calendar as Dog/OC and Monkey/CHUEN, sharing the peak position of the Tzolk’in, side-by-side. They go together. Our Power to Create is dependent on Unconditional Love, and Creation is a dynamic expression of that Love.

The purpose of this trecena is to inspire us to Create an Expression of Love. We have a Creator, the Master of all Art, guiding us to Create.

The Monkey/CHUEN trecena is a Divine Experiment. CHUEN is able to tap in to our Inspiration and Imagination.  We can set Reason aside for the time-being. We’re invited to play a game of Creation with the Monkey. The light-hearted Monkey approaches life like the game of a grand adventure. In the 7th uinal we are suspended from the structure of duality. We can observe the process free of judgement or characterization of “success” or “failure.”

2 Road / EB – Witness to a Miracle: Day 2 of 13


2 Road / EB (Human)

Greetings Kin,

Monkey/CHUEN inspires our Dreams of Creation. The Core Days of the Tzolk’in like at the center of the Galactic Butterfly. We are crystallizing a new image of our identity as Divine Co-Creators.

The New Moon in Scorpio, November 18th offers the energy of regeneration and synchronizes the energy to recreate our Self. Scorpio will challenge us to release our old ideas about our Self through a process of letting go.

Tone 2 brings an Energy for Discernment. As we see new potential within our Self, we can step into the new shoes of life as we would dream it to be.

Road/EB is the Day Sign of the Human and the Road to our Destiny. Under the Tone 2, we are discerning the Choices we would make for our future. Tone 2 represents the energy of Duality. As Human, we arrive at discernment by comparing the opposite extremes of polarity. We look at the “good” and “bad,” the “possible” and “impossible.” With a new sense of the Power of our Authority, the “degree” of “happiness” vs “unhappiness” we create is within our Power to Choose.

1 Monkey / CHUEN – Witness to a Miracle: Day 1 of 13

1 Monkey / CHUEN



Greetings Kin,

The next 13 days…

1 Monkey/CHUEN begins a new Season of Light. We begin the Summer Season of this Tzolk’in round of 260 days. We will multiply Love through the Miracle of Birth.

Human’s Highest Personal Experience of Spirit is taking part in the Creation of a New Consciousness. Divine Intervention is a necessary part of the Magic of Creation. The Creator is the Source of the new Divine Spark. Through the experience of Birth, we will bear witness to an Act of Divine Authority.

Monkey/CHUEN is the Weaver of Time. The glyph illustrates “time rolled up” on Monkey’s head, connecting our Past, Present and Future. Monkey works through our unconscious to draw Inspiration. The face of Monkey is similarly imposed on the glyph of Night/AKBAL, the Day Sign of Spirit that Speaks in our Dreams. Monkey/CHUEN is the Day Sign of a Dreamer, capable of manifesting the Dream. CHUEN can weave a Dream into a thing of Beauty.

7th & 8th UINALS:
We still exist in the 7th uinal that Balances the Above and the Below. The Flint/ETZNAB trecena offered a clearing of karma that Purified our Spirit. Monkey/CHUEN inspires us to Create an Expression of Unconditional Love. The 7th uinal crystallizes our vision of the future. 10 Sun/AHAU will complete the 7th uinal, balancing the Above and Below through a Revelation of Light. We will begin the 8th uinal, Purified in Spirit for Justice accomplished by Divine Intervention.

21 DAYS of CEREMONY: 1 Monkey/CHUEN marks 21 days to the K’iche Maya New Year celebrated on 8 B’atz (8 Monkey/CHUEN). Observing 21 days of personal ceremony is a traditional preparation for those who count the days to be initiated as Mayan Daykeepers on the New Year. 8 B’atz marks the Maya’s Highest Celebration of the Sacred Calendar of Creation.

The momentum of movement is created on Tone 6, the cresting of a wave of trans-formative energy. These are the most favorable days for influence and accomplishment.  The lower numbered Tones hold less energy, intended as days of inner work. The higher numbered Tones are compared to a wave crashing – a powerful energy already set into its course of motion.

  • 6 Wisdom/CIB – Connected to the Ancestors, we learn their Way to Higher Consciousness, through the Intention of Forgiveness.
  • 7 Earth/CABAN – We are Balanced by the Forces of Nature and the Movement of Mother Earth.
  • 8 Flint/ETZNAB – The Truth of Spirit is exalted for a new Transformation of Justice.
  • 9 Storm/CAUAC – We are Transformed by a Regeneration of Consciousness of the Creator’s Spark within and the Truth of our Unbridled Freedom.
