4 Crocodile / IMIX – Healing by Truth: Day 4

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Crocodile/IMIX

4 Crocodile/IMIX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 brings the stabilizing force for our regeneration. In a trecena that would restore us to the Integrity of our Spiritual Nature, we enter the Core Days of the Tzolk’in – the Womb of Creation where we receive the care of our primordial mother, Crocodile/IMIX.  The 7th Uinal, the center column of 20 Day Signs, brings the Higher Intention of establishing our Balance.

The center of the Tzolk’in reflects our own Tree of Life. The Maya believed this to be the axis mundi – the center of the world that connects Heaven and Earth and where the four directions meet. Here there is no Duality of Good or Bad, Dark or Light. We exist in the pure essence of Being.

tree-of-lifeThis is the place of the Great, “I Am.” The Tree of Life illustrates the communication from lower realms that ascends to higher ones and blessings from higher realms that descend to lower ones to be disseminated to all by the Fruit of its Branches. Cleared of our Karma, we are aligned for a Divine Re-Creation.

IMIX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine that holds the capability of Divine Discernment, Compassion, and Motherly Love. Crocodile/IMIX carries the memory of our initial creation and knows the Truth of what we are capable To Be. IMIX holds the responsibility for our nourishment and well-being, and reveals the Truth that’s needed to Live our Lives in a fullness of who we Really Are.

3 Sun / AHAU – Healing by Truth: Day 3

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

3 sun

3 Sun/AHAU

Greetings Kin,

The Flint/ETZNAB trecena is guiding us through a fearless discovery of the hidden parts of ourselves. Like a pruning, the process can be painful, though in the end we’ll be stronger and bear a more abundant harvest.

I have found myself questioning, “Who AM I?” My shadow is being drawn out so I can see with crystal clarity the parts of me that are not in correspondence with my Higher Self. I am in deep consideration of everything I would desire to let go.

The Wayeb doubles this energy of personal clearings  as it brings the Haab 365-day year to its conclusion. It is a time for throwing away old and broken things and to bring resolution to make way for a New Year. (See 13 Earth/CABAN for more on the Wayeb.)

Flint has brought painful self awareness. My shadow feels the full weight of its attachment, like an old flannel shirt it hates to give away. The chaos of the world is reflected back to me as my own powerlessness and disappointment in myself.

Then, I Re-Member this is a “working” trecena. We are applying what we learned about our own Inner Power.  We came out of a 10-day Portal to the Spirit World from the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena. Our Spiritual Experience may now seem like a long-ago dream. The job at hand is to Re-Member our Spiritual Power is still there. Our “work” is to now operate on Belief in the Power of our own Spirit.

2 Storm / CAUAC – Healing by Truth: Day 2

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Storm / CAUAC

2 Storm / CAUAC

Greetings Kin,

1 Flint/ETZNAB brought light to something that has existed in the shadows. Flint opens an opportunity to bring a healing by sweeping away something that is broken. Today we consider an Intention of Transformation from our individual perspective. We make a choice about an Intention to Manifest a Healing for our Self.

Storm/CAUAC brings the comforting energies of Home, where we would be nourished and inspired by the possibility of the Total Freedom of Being. Storm’s lightning displays the Unbridled Energy of Spirit that is capable to find its own path through unlimited possibility.

THE WAYEB: We will continue to be in the 19th Month of the Haab’s Wayeb, 5 days of “time out” before the Haab New Year (5 Wind/IK). The Elders say what we do in these 5 days will impact this 365 day cycle. This is a time to let go of what is broken, and to care for the Earth and Each Other. (See 13 Earth/CABAN for more on the Wayeb.)

1 Flint / ETZNAB – Healing by Truth: Day 1

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

1 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

The next 13 days…

We begin again. Flint/ETZNAB leads a cycle of Transformation we might compare to Psychic Surgery. The Flint knife cuts deep to the heart to a bring Healing by Truth. ETZNAB is compared to an obsidian mirror that returns a perfect reflection of something that lies in the shadows. As Flint brings crystal clarity to the illusions we have about ourselves, our darkness can be cut away.

Flint/ETZNAB is likely to lead us on a journey of dramatic events. The shadows within ourselves will be tempted to make an appearance. There’s potential to see the worst of ourselves and also the worst of others in the world around us. This is a day when few things can remain secret or hidden. There is a caution to anyone who hopes to  cover up the Truth, for this is the very Truth that Flint reveals.

THE WAYEB: We will continue to be in the 19th Month of the Haab’s Wayeb, 5 days of “time out” before the Haab New Year (5 Wind/IK). The Elders say what we do in these 5 days will impact this 365 day cycle. This is a time to let go of what is broken, and to care for the Earth and Each Other.

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

12 Wisdom / CIB – Walk Between Worlds: Day 12

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Wisdom/CIBGreetings Kin,

Tone 12 empowers us with a gift for retrospection. We have the ability to draw more from our experience than what was initially seen on the surface. Wisdom/CIB amplifies this as the Wisdom drawn from our Ancestors. We are given the powers of understanding how the Energy of Spirit can accomplish a Divine Purpose. The Wisdom/CIB glyph represents the mind in its purest state of forgiveness and spiritual communion.

This is our final Portal day. Before the veil reappears, CIB helps us to crystallize the Vision of our Understanding. The incremental elements of what we have learned can now be brought together to complete the rest of a story.

GREEN KIN: ELEMENT OF ETHER
The Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena presents 10 Portal Days in a row (Tones 2 thru 12). Tone 12 brings us to the destination of our Spiritual Journey. Our experiences will be magnified by a thinning of the veil and an opening to other dimensions. Today our “lightning in the blood” could transform our Spiritual Consciousness to our Connection with s Presence of Energy from beyond.

11 Eagle / MEN – Walk Between Worlds: Day 11

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Eagle/MEN

11 Eagle/MEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 serves the Intention of Resolution. As the Chicchan trecena has raised Awareness of our Spiritual Power, we must still answer the question of how this understanding will actually fit into our lives. We can remember that something always dies as something new is born. Today we can see something of our old pattern of movement that would fall away, and the new way of moving that would take its place.

Eagle/MEN is also a dedicated Emissary who serves in the role of an Intermediary. Eagle is able to connect our Spiritual Vision, by raising us up to the Heavenly Realm. Eagle is intuitive and decisive when it springs into action. When it knows what it wants, Eagle holds the Intuitive Senses to reach for and grasp an opportunity that it sees from far away.

Eagle/MEN offers us a gift of long-range vision. The Eagle is considered a Day Sign of prosperity, based on its ability to see future outcomes. As we consider how a new understanding would transform our life, we are led by one who sees what it wants in the future and intuitively knows the exact place in time for engagement.

GREEN KIN: ELEMENT OF ETHER
The Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena presents 10 Portal Days in a row (Tones 2 thru 12). Our experiences will be magnified by a thinning of the veil and an opening to other dimensions. We are given a gift of Vision to see beyond today and so we may prepare for something in our future.
