8 Wisdom / CIB – A Journey as One: Day 8


8 Wisdom / CIB

Greetings Kin,

The Tzolk’in illustrates Human’s Way of Transformation. Each day builds upon the experience of yesterday, and each trecena builds upon the Ascension of the last. The MULUC trecena is building upon an Ascension from the Wisdom/CIB trecena. Wisdom/CIB returns on Tone 8 to mark the place from which a New Transformation will begin.

Tone 8 is observed as a Holy Day for Sacred Ritual. Our Sacred Rituals are said to hold the power of theurgy, the ability to draw Divine Agency to Human affairs.

As a Yellow Day Sign of the South, Wisdom is a symbol of Relationship. CIB is the Day Sign of the Old Ones, those who walked before and  who accomplished the Highest Levels of Consciousness. They are with us in relationship on this Holy Day to help raise us up to a new level of Transformation that will be completed over the course of the next 6 days.

Tone 8 carries the Intention of Divine Justice. We are at the beginning of a Transformation aided by Divine Intervention. Tone 8 holds the Potential for a Spiritual Experience. I’ve begun to notice that many of my Major Milestones, ones I don’t forget, are marked on Holy Days of Tone 8. This is a day with great potential for a Divine Revelation.

13 Star / LAMAT – Ascension: Day 13


13 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13 we Ascend to a Higher Consciousness. From the Wisdom of our Own Experience, we see ourselves in a New Way.  We were given the Keys to Enlightenment in the Unconditional Love of the Creator and the Wisdom of the Ancient Ones. We are transformed by a New Light to Overcome our Darkness.

Star/LAMAT reminds us we are made of stars as the Personification of Light. Like the Sun, the symbol of our Creator, so are we capable to shine the Transforming Light of Love and Happiness. The glyph marks the 4 directions to illustrate that we were created to Shine our Light equally in all directions. We can see that our Highest Power is held when we share the Creator’s Intention of the Justice of Harmony and Equity.

On Wisdom/CIB’s Path to Higher Learning this is the day of our Commencement. This is a major milestone on our journey of understanding and a day meant to celebrate our accomplishment… an important day to remember.  Just as a new graduate sees they are destined for greater things, so can we see how our Wisdom would carry us to a New Horizon.

This is an important day to Count our Blessings. LAMAT’s totem is the Rabbit, a day of “pure luck” that multiplies to abundance whatever we focus on. This is a day to see our Self in our Highest Light and to hold our Highest Affirmations.  Whatever Vision we Hold will be multiplied to abundance.

12 Deer / MANIK – Path of Higher Learning: Day 12


12 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Galactic Tone 12 offers the intention of Understanding. This is the day of the trecena when a new Truth sinks in as the Wisdom from which we would ascend to our next level of Consciousness. CIMI’s guidance on change presented the missing piece that brings everything we’ve learned together as a new functioning whole.

CIMI helped us to see that managing chaos is expected in our perpetual process of change. We can see it as only the problems we face, or we can recognize it as the Truth that we are moving toward another new beginning. The CIB trecena of Higher Learning shared a Truth that we never walk alone. No matter what our challenge, we call Divine Guidance to our Self, when we surrender ourselves into the hands of Divine Agency.

The changes we must go through are critical to our Dynamic Development. If this is true, by Divine Design, Human would be given a Way to overcome these challenges.

Deer/MANIK is the bringer of Spiritual Tools, and as the Day Sign of the Mayan Priest, represents God’s Hands in the world. The glyph illustrates our own Hand (another name for Deer/MANIK), capable to reach up and grasp the “ether of God” to complete a circuit to Divine Power. The greatest gift of MANIK is the Understanding that there is a Spiritual Tool to overcome every limitation.

11 Transformer / CIMI – Path of Higher Learning: Day 11


11 Transformer / CIMI

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 offers the Intention of Resolution. Through a new clarity of understanding, we will discover how our new Wisdom will “fit in” and be integrated into our everyday experience of living.

Transformer/CIMI is the Day Sign that signals a major life change. The glyph that illustrates death, reminds us that something always dies as something new is born. We are dying to our old way of Being, as we are Transformed by Higher Wisdom of Divine Love.

This is the 11th Tone of the 11th Uinal. Together they magnify the Resolution of number 11. The karmic Master Number 11 symbolizes the principles of spiritual awakening and enlightenment. 11 is also recognized as the number of “the messenger” or “the teacher” who offers a guiding light. 11 also offers us an opportunity to be a guiding light for others.

For our New Wisdom to become a lasting part of us, some final adjustments, clarifications and insights are in order. This is all part of the process of Galactic Tone 11. CIMI offers the Gift of Clairvoyance through which we can draw Divine Wisdom through change.

10 Serpent / CHICCHAN – Path of Higher Learning: Day 10


10 Serpent / CHICCHAN

Greetings Kin,

“Chicchan lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the Life Force itself.” (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI VK)

Tone 10 brings an important day of Manifestation. In the trecena led by CIB, we are manifesting the Divine Wisdom of Higher Consciousness through the Experience of Forgiveness. We’re guided by Divine Agency through a new Transformation.

We have been learning about our Power to Heal the world, planting a Seed that was Given by the Creator. The Old Ones Know that this Divine Wisdom stretches the limits of our Belief. Serpent/CHICCHAN offers the Power through which our Wisdom can be Known as Truth throughout our entire Being.

Serpent/CHICCHAN is a Catalyst that ignites Divine Energy within our physicality. The Day Sign known for bringing “lightning in the blood” awakens our Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Telepathy – the Gift of Knowing something that can’t be Seen. This day is a Sacred Event we are given to Acknowledge and Claim our Spiritual Body.

11th Uinal: Manifestation of Resolution – The 11th Uinal is a Higher Influence upon the Wisdom/CIB trecena. We are always processing two cycles together, the progression of the 20 Day Signs (13 uinals), and the perpetual cycles of Creation (20 13-day trecenas). Together they are the 2 factors defining Human Creation (260) – 20 fingers and toes (our instinctual way of reasoning), and 13 major joints in the body (the way we are able to move in the world). The 13 numbers are important, representing the Divine Chronology and Order of Creation. The sum of the Day Signs is the Alpha and Omega – the Sacred 19 is the Signature of God. The Maya counted the last Day Sign, Sun/AHAU as the zero, the beginning and the end.

As we progress through the uinals we follow that same wave of energy we experience in each trecena, on a larger scale. This 11th uinal is among the uinals of the Highest Energy – approaching 13, the energy that connects us to the Power of the Creator. 11 represents the intention of Resolution. This is our first Tone of Manifestation on this larger scale. An energy of Resolution holds the Power to Manifest a new and unknown piece of Truth that will help us to assimilate what we’ve learned into our Body of Wisdom. 10 Serpent/CHICCHAN gives us a Powerful Day to See and Claim a Higher Truth.

9 Seed / KAN – Path of Higher Learning: Day 9


9 Seed / KAN

Greetings Kin,

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

The Peak Energy of Tone 9 calls for our patience to see a broader perspective. We could miss the Higher Purpose of what we are learning, by not looking more deeply into our own Inspiration.

Seed/KAN holds the dynamic potential for us to create something new. We are guided by Seed/KAN to see our place as co-creators in the world. And, we are called to participate in the Earth magic that transforms a Seed from a dormant grain into a full-grown living thing.

Seed holds the evidence of the miracles all around us. Some seeds are so small they can barely been seen, yet within the tiny seed is encoded thousands of pages of information that define what it will be. When seed is given the right conditions it begins its miraculous transformation into something millions of times greater than itself.

seed smallCould we even imagine this is possible, if we hadn’t seen the miracle for ourselves?

Seed is a symbol that reflects who We Are. The Maya revered Corn as the symbol of all the people in all the colors we are. And the Tzolk’in of 260 days reflects the gestation cycle of corn that is correspondent with Human gestation.

Like the seed, we are growing to become exponentially greater than we are in our beginning. And, like the seed, the monumental process of our growth is barely recognizable from one day to the next. Our Faith needed to Manifest our Highest Aspiration will rest in the Worthiness we Believe is held in our Intention – the Seed we plant.

The Cherokee Day Sign, the Dragon, is the Corn Spirit, which symbolizes the duality of the Corn Mother and Maiden, holding the power of fertility and pro-creation for each generation. A single seed of corn holds the power of fertility and abundance to multiply itself to reproduce a whole garden within a single generation. The “dragon energy” of Seed is the Holy Fire of Creation that generates our Spiritual Harvest.

The Dragon offers the capability to “See Clearly.” Seed encourages our “profound investigations” into self. We are asked to consider the Seeds we would sow. We must cultivate our garden, gathering what is needed and clearing away the debris of our past. Tone 9 asks us to see the Rest of the Truth about our Self.

Seed holds the potential to affect future generations… the Power to Change the World. 8 Night/AKBAL showed us how to Heal Our Self, yet we only addressed the Fault We Know We Deny… those closest to our own Experience. From the broader perspective of Tone 9, we would consider Mother Earth and the Whole of Humanity as a Higher Purpose of Intention.

The chaos of the world is the reflection of our Own Darkness. We are also self-serving, taking more than we give. We are also dishonest, covering up the darkest truth about our Self. And, we also leave our footprint on Mother Earth. When we can accept the Truth that the outer darkness is our collective reflection, we hold the Power to Heal the World.

Seed/KAN connects us to the Heartbeat of the Earth. As a Day Sign of the South, KAN relates to our relationships with one another and with the Natural World. Holding the Power of Reproduction and Germination, Tone 9 asks us to plant the Seed of Forgiveness on behalf of Mother Earth and all the Corn People.

To all my relations, may we have the Patience on Tone 9 for Seed/KAN to reveal the Higher Purpose of our Way of Forgiveness. As we lay down the blame that sees only the fault in others, we would cry the Tears of Forgiveness to Heal the World. As we evaluate the worthiness of this Intention, there’s no doubt our Seed would serve the Highest Intention of the Creator. We would take our own place among the people, full-grown by a Seed of Sacred Wisdom, to become the Old Ones who preserve New Sacred Wisdom, the Inheritance for Future Generations.

In lak’ech, I am another you

9 Seed/KAN (Cherokee, Dragon/ UKTE’NA   O’STO)

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

Seed/KAN: Family, sexual activity and the magic of germination are the characteristics of this sun sign. Natural net workers, Seed people strive to free themselves and others from debt or oppressive patterns of the past. Abundance is gathered by Seeds as if with a cast net. Seed persons are public defenders who work toward uniting community by discovering hidden traps and secret influences of others. To generate true abundance, Seed must learn to appreciate all gifts and lessons received and conduct profound investigations into its self. In the absence of gratefulness and the courage to face oneself, Seed finds itself in less than less fertile environments.

Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA   O’STO: Dragon’s symbol is Draco winding between the Little Dipper and Big Dipper. Dragon is the Corn Spirit, symbol of dual personality of Corn Mother and Maiden. Fertility and pro-creation from generation to generation. The word dragon means ” eye, to look at, to see clearly”.  Spirit brings energy of Lawgiver, Justice, vigilance and protective, loyal unto death. Ley lines in China are “dragon lines”, energy is sometimes called “orgone energy”, pyramid power or magnetic force. Pyramids and kivas are collector portals for this energy, known as vortexes. Dragon energy beats a path everywhere, stirring things up with a big stick in tune with the beat of the drum, heartbeat of the Earth.

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.
