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.

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.

12 Jaguar / IX – Transformation of Possibility: Day 12


12 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 brings the intention of assimilating our new knowledge into a the Whole of our Wisdom. Our gift of retrospection is highlighted to clearly see the ground we’ve covered. The Akbal trecena added another gift by connecting our Intellect and Intuition. Using these gifts together for the purpose of Hindsight, we can draw from both our Experiences of Spirit and Physicality. This is the day when Truth sinks in.

I’m inspired by the calendar’s perfect order in a Way of Acquiring Divine Wisdom. We are completing another Season of the 260-day Tzolk’in round. Our next trecena begins the last Season of the Tzolk’in Sacred Cycle of Transformation. We’ll have expanded opportunities in the next trecena to “Look back” again to see the Body of Wisdom we’ve assimilated over the whole of the Tzolk’in round.

Jaguar/IX is a Day Sign of Spirit whose way of seeing things is through the Whole of its Senses. Jaguar’s are seldom seen because they’re acutely aware of everything around them. Beyond their physical Senses, Jaguar is also magical in its ability to See into the Realm of Spirit. They are the shaman and the shape-shifter who can share their vision as they travel through time and space. The Jaguar can help us see into the future by leading us on a journey to our past.

1 Night / AKBAL – Transformation of Possibility: Day 1


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.

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.
