MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
7 Star / LAMAT
Tone 7 represents the peak of our climb at the top of the pyramid. From a higher perspective we can see where we began our climb to empower a new Intention. Our steps leading up are reflected by the mirror image of the steps leading down. Our process of Transformation is accomplished by an elevation of Discernment, which can then be manifested from the Above to the Below. The effort of our Spiritual Growth draws Understanding from the Ether of Spirit to be brought down to the Earthly realm of our Experience.
A teacher and shaman of the Hopi-Tewa tradition, Joselph Rael, “Beautiful Painted Arrow,” describes this movement as footsteps leaving “tracks of light.” Our Illumination is a movement from the center of the Medicine Wheel, a universe within, to the outer parameter of a circle. Here we pick up the Light of new experience that is carried back to our Center. Our footsteps leave “tracks of Light.” Our Dance of Life is a reflection on our own “tracks of light.”
Tone 7 holds the Intention of reflection. Star/LAMAT, like the 12th Uinal, is a reflection of Venus as the Morning Star. As the Hand of God, we reflected on our Higher and Lower Self. Through our reflection positioned at the top of a pyramid, the place on Earth where we Stand closest to the Creator, we are called to a Higher Perspective. Tone 7 is a place of Divine Discernment. Here, we can comprehend that Human is the Lower Self of the Creator. Venus is the brightest heavenly body in the sky that emits its own light. We were given a Spark of the Creator to become a Personification of God’s Light.
Lamat’s totem animal is the Rabbit, the nuhaul of fertility and multiplication. As we are able to Discern that we Exist on the same Scale as the Creator, that we are One and the Same, our Light will be Multiplied to Abundance. Like the Sun and the Moon, the two faces of the Creator, our Light will be multiplied in the image of the Creator to take its place as a Light to the World.
