8 Storm/CAUAC

Greetings on this day of 8 (justice), Storm/CAUAC (the Thunder being)

Galactic Tone 8
Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefuly weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement "as above, so below." From simplicy to infinity, the energy of Eight oganizes all levels of creation.

Day Keeper Storm / CAUAC supports lightening quick transformations and rebirth. Open your heart to the quickening of transformation from the Day Keeper Storm/CAUAC. Storm initiates us with a water blessing... the blessings of rain. Water and moon are associated with the feminine aspects of nature and spirit. It is a catalyst for revelation as it tears through the veil to further illuminate what is real. Storm brings quikening through thunder and lightening, and reminds us of the ecstasy of freedom. Cauac's activation is impossible to avoid. Storm encourages us forward to novel experiences.

Combined with Eight, this Day Sign suggests a day of inspiration upon which to determine the balance of energies that guide us to that next higher step in our transformation.

Color: Blue/Black
This color represents the direction of the West, which offers transformation and changes, such as the changes we see from day to dusk - night to dawn.

Light Day
As a "light day" the energies of today provide a foundation for new awareness and insight.

7 Flint(Mirror)/ETZNAB

Greetings on this day of 7 (reflection), Flint/ETZNAB (mirror of reality; reflection and introspection)

Galactic Tone 7
Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals. Seven is also associated by the Mayans with the sign of the Jaguar, which represents mystical or psychic awareness.

Flint (Mirror)/ETZNAB
Mirror of reality - as a struck flint, these persons are the divine sparks of intelligence. Flint's innate abilities are used to discriminate emotions from fact. Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away. Flints, it was said, can receive information on inter-personal troubles or the evil plots of others by reflecting in an obsidian mirror. Their valiant service as warriors of the truth must be impeccable or they will experience suffering of accidents, misunderstandings, and gossip.

Color: White
White represents the direction of the North and the accumulation of knowledge. White and the North are related to air and mind - thoughts and ideas - wisdom as knowledge with the emotions distilled from it, rather cold, apart and analytical.

Dark Day
A dark period is not some evil period, but a time of rest to reflect on what has been learned or to apply what is now known.

Together, 7 and Flint/ETZNAB encourage us to reflect upon our experience to determine the facts of any matter, apart from any emotion that may be associated with it. Impeccable intentions serve as a foundation for keen insight and right action.

6 Earth/CABAN

Greetings on the day of 6 (flow, Earth/CABAN (natural forces and dynamic forces of earth)

Galactic Tone 6
The movement of volume through space creating time – 6 is the energy of negotiation and responsiveness. Think on the art of dance or the play of a great athlete to see this energy in action. Six energy facilitates dynamic developments and improvements in all aspects of life.

Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide powers of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Color: Red
Red represents the direction of the East, as the dawn of each new day, beginnings or birth.

Light Day
There are cycles within the Mayan calendar that include an oscillation between “light” and “dark” periods of creation. A “light” period generally presents some new awareness – as a light being turned on. A “dark” period of creation is a time of rest and reflection, or a time to apply what is now known.

Together, 6 and Earth/CABAN support forward movement, negotiation, and dynamic change to bring a natural order and flow. A good day to thank Mother Nature for all her gifts.

5 Wisdom/CIB

Greetings on this day of 5 (empowerment), Wisdom/CIB (intuitive connection to the ancients)

Galactic Tone 5
At the center of the cube is 5, an intelligent, organizing force, which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.

Wisdom/CIB (also known as the Owl) represents the old ones and the wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of one’s self that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archeological treasures. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to Wisdom persons.

Color: Yellow
Yellow represents the direction of the South, a direction of fulfillment or coming to fruit. South also represents the body and the earth – open, warm, friendly and full of feeling. Red signs may experience Yellow days with mystery or surprise, White – as challenge or strengthening, and Blue/Black – as a day of support and comfort.

Dark Day
A dark period is not some evil period, but a time of rest to reflect on what has been learned or to apply what is now known.

Together, the energies of this day encourage us to seek established wisdom for direction, and to honor the earth and the ancient ones… to gather what is needed to continue to move forward.

4 Eagle/MEN

Greetings on this day 4 (stability), Eagle/MEN (higher perspective)

Galactic Tone 4
The most stable of all forms is the cube. Four is the establishment of volume by definition. The four directions give orientation to any form as the height, length, depth and breadth give shape to any form. The energy of 4 sets the parameters which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, a work or relationship.

Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagle's superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle persons as the flapping of wings would sustain his bird brothers. If eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with the freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.

Color: Black/Blue (West)
Eagle/MEN is represented by the color black (or blue) and corresponds to the direction of the West. The West brings transformation and changes, just as the changes we see from day to dusk or from night to dawn.

Light Day
There are cycles within the Mayan calendar that include an oscillation between “light” and “dark” periods of creation. A “light” period generally presents some new awareness – as a light being turned on. A “dark” period of creation is a time of rest and reflection, or a time to apply what is now known.

The combination of 4 and Eagle/MEN encourages us to ascend to a higher perspective, and stabilize our intention by defining its form and parameters. A “light” day indicates a day when we may receive new information upon which to support this process – and the direction of the West suggests that through this process our dream/intention/creation may be transformed or changed.

We are encouraged toward compassionate service to others and to be open to new information.

On the day of 1 - the day of new beginnings and intentions, the dream I brought forward on 1 Road/EB, was my desire to transform my work into something that reflects my spiritual path - whether through art, writing, teaching or the new application of exiting business skills... and to expand my circle of loving partners to support this forward movement.

Though the process of following the Galactic Week seems like a natural flow that is carrying me forward, I am still amazed at the acceleration of progress I have made by simply being conscious of the best way to proceed on a daily basis. This has become the "magic" of the Mayan Calendar for me - the clear evidence of progress that happens so effortlessly, and the serendipitous events that seem to occur when my attention is drawn into this natural flow.

What are you creating? If you didn't consciously set forth your dreams and intentions on Tuesday, 1 Road/EB (Tuesday, March 24), can you remember what hopes and dreams may have been on your mind? Be open to new information today that may help you more fully define your dreams - your desired creation, and consider how those dreams may be transformed or changed to their highest potential.

We are each given a new process each day that brings the highest potential for moving our dreams forward... a time for each purpose. During days 1-4, I have experienced the energy of "germination" - the time of "not knowing" - that in itself should be recognized as a sacred process. Just as a new planting makes it's first appearance above the soil, we may feel the vulnerability as a new sprout that must be attended to in order to thrive. On days 5-9, we ride the crest of a wave of energy, where we are most productive in moving forward. The day of 10 brings the energy of manifestation... a day by which I have been generally presented with clear evidence of how my dream is unfolding. Days 11-13 have led me to integrate my new changes and progress, and to ascend to the next higher step for my intention, and the next opportunity to begin again.

3 Jaguar/IX

Greetings on the day of 3 (action), Jaguar/IX (Earth magic, protector, and energy of the Shaman)

Galactic Tone 3
3 represents movement and communication. 3 energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how you establish a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. The basic movement is a vibration. Working closely with the energy of 3, any person becomes more able to predict motion of all kinds.

Born with a deep love of Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman, is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength of character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as materials ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming the search for wealth and fame.

Color: White
Jaguar is represented by the color white - the direction of the North - and, activity of the air (communication, breath, speech) and mind (thought, perspective, analysis). The North is the direction of wisdom and accumulation of knowledge, which prepares us for the next higher step, encouraging us forward to begin again.

Together, Galactic Tone 3 encourages us to take action, with Jaguar/IX offering the insight, intellect, and strength of character upon which we are empowered to take action quickly. This is a good day to consider the best way to move forward and to transform intentions through our action... a good day to be grateful for all of life's lessons.

2 Reed/BEN

Greetings on this day of 2, duality, Reed/BEN, guiding light for family and home.

Galactic Tone 2
Mysterious as the question "to be or not to be," 2 brings the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking in balance while making all kinds of choices - light/dark, male/female, good/bad, ying/yan... is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number's energy.

Reed/BEN represents spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. Reed/BEN persons are competent speakers who take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, they endeavor to bring peace, harmony and order to all of their relations. Reeds are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation. This day encourages us to consider flexibility in our views and frame our communications to make our point without hitting others over the head with it.

COLOR: Red (East)
You may also look at the aspects of any Day Keeper based on its color. Red represents the East, the direction of the rising Sun and the source of our inspiration. Red represents fire energy and also rebirth. Red provides a feeling of surprise or mystery when experienced by those with birth/destiny Day Keeper suns represented by the color Yellow; support and comfort for White Day Keeper signs, challenge/strength for Blue Day Keeper signs; and a feeling of affinity with other Red Day Keeper signs.

The Kin number of the day is similar to the Julian date on the Gregorian calendar. This is the 93 day of the 260 day Mayan year, and one of the 52 “portal days” for activation.

Portal days are time cycle intersections that help facilitate the receptivity of cosmic knowledge. Within the grid of the Tzolk’in that uses the mathematics of 28, portal days connect us to the cycles of the moon through mathematics. This calendar “grid” resembles the strands of our DNA.

On portal days, we feel the effect of two powerful cycles at once. We find that cosmic remembrance is clearer and very activated on these days. We also find major events happen on portal days. This green day cycle accelerates as we are approaching the middle of the 260-day Mayan year. The next Green Day activation occurs on Saturday, March 28 (5 Wisdom/CIB).

Together, 2 and Reed/BEN lead us to view our intention from the perspective of duality - to view it from both sides, and to communicate our truth with flexibility and understanding. Factoring in the Green Day activation, there is a portal for deeper self awareness, and significant events.

1 Road/EB

Greetings on this day of One, the beginning of all things, Road/EB, the bearer of time and conductor of destiny.

Galactic Tone 1
The beginning of all things - the first, the whole, the ALL of one. The energies of one gives a good push to whatever project one is associated with. One gives the energy of meeting new challenges. One does not give the finishing touches, but sets new intentions along the path of sacred creation, allowing manifestation of the whole to fall in place in it's own time (on the 10 day of manifestation).

The bearer of time and the conductor of destiny, Road/EB opens the road and guides us to future groups, communities and individuals. Road encourages dedication and hard work - and thus leads us to success in business and our movement in the world. Road encourages us to be care takers of the poor, sick, or elderly - through personal sacrifices. Road/EB is sometimes referred to as the sign of Grass, which is the most bountiful of all life forms, though also the most humble.

Together, 1 and Road/EB provide guidance to set new or renewed intentions that reach beyond our own needs to support the needs of others in our lives.


I feel a “magic” in following the Tzolkin calendar each day that recalls a oneness with all and a direction and energy that seems to flow easily toward the manifestation of my dreams and intentions. When I review my experiences through this past 13-day Galactic Week, each day progressed forward in a natural flow toward a new creation and new awareness.

Under the “Week” Keeper of 1 Storm/CAUAC, one is the beginning of all things, and Storm brings the lightening of inspiration, winds of change, and the blessing of rain – recognized by the Native Americans as descending light. Under the first day of the week’s Day Keeper of 1 Storm/CAUAC, I set intentions to open my heart to love and my life to the support I desired that would serve to encourage me toward my dreams.

On weekday/tone 1, I drove to the top of Mt. Lemmon to plant my intentions in sacred ceremony under the light of the full moon. I had barely had time to smudge, when a woman pulled into my lookout point, who had come there to photograph Spirit orbs. After some friendly conversation I learned she was a teacher helping women step into the power of their Spirit path. She gifted me with a beautiful beaded pendulum, and I exchanged a handmade medicine bag. I had planned to bury something on the mountaintop under the rising moon, and instead ended up heading for home directly after our conversation. It seemed that I had been distracted from the ceremony I’d planned for the purpose of calling the intention for love and support – and an end to my walk alone.

It wasn’t until hours later that I realized the real ceremony HAD taken place as the exchange of gifts and honoring of friendship, caring, and support.

Each morning throughout the week, I greeted the morning Suns with gratitude for the blessing of a new day, and a pathway that guided me through a flow of energy toward the natural manifestation of my intentions and heartfelt dream. Just as the world was created in 7 days and 6 nights, the 13 Galactic Tone pulse energies are meant to encourage us along the sacred flow of creation.

I was drawn to the Mayan teachings after years of following the Native American path – in knowledge of my Cherokee ancestors. It was interesting to learn that the Cherokee were among the indigenous tribes that followed the sacred Tzolkin calendar. Though the stories these ancestors would have wanted to share were excluded from the tales of my family history, they are still recorded in my DNA and a part of my Spirit’s memory. Each of us has roots that ultimately reach back to our indigenous beginnings, and the events of every religion and major world event are recorded within the codex of the Mayan Calendar.

In lak’ech – we are all one and the same – and the composite of all time. We are all experiencing the different parts and reflections of the same “one thing.” We can step into the shoes of any other – and we do – whenever we serve one another as our selves. Each of us has something unique to give. Whenever we give in accordance with the need or pleasure of the other, we are giving to ourselves the joy of walking in our own greatest abundance… honoring the greatest of all gifts we are capable to give to the other.

Through the 13 days, my experiences and natural tendencies followed each day’s energy, with or without the immediate consciousness of it – reviewing my days each evening allowed me to honor the loving energy that seemed to be encouraging me on toward my dreams.

On the day of 10 Star/LAMAT – the Spring Equinox, March 20, 2009 – under the 10 of manifestation, and Star/LAMAT of the energy of abundant creation – I shared in celebration with a host of new friends at a Mayan gathering in Colorado. I was sleeping on top of a mountain in the Rockies at the home of loving new friends in their lovely mountaintop paradise. I shared lessons and the experiences of the weekend with my dearest and best friend, who was there with loving and warm support as I released my deepest sorrow.

As my week concluded, I realized that my dreams were manifesting in Truth, and in the highest way to fulfill my own deepest needs. I shared the loving warmth of true friends as I celebrated the Spring Equinox. I returned home to find a gift of support in my mailbox, from another friend who desired to ease the cost of my trip. I experienced the magical moments that my heart longed for under the light of the Equinox sun, and returned with new inspiration and clearer awareness of where my dreams may further lead me.

I believe the Sun was born of the Creator and placed in the sky to remind us of the existence of the light of love that always shines upon the world of humanly struggles. If our Creator wanted to communicate to us each directly, is it so far-fetched to believe that the Source of God’s connection would inescapable as the brightest star in the sky?

As I begin the new week under 1 Road/EB, I start with a new and extended loving network of friends, each on their own special path, yet eternally connected through the heart. Once again, I will raise my newborn dreams and intentions to the light and follow the flow toward the manifestation of my dearest intentions.

As I began the past Galactic Week on top of Mt. Lemmon, meeting a woman who photographed orbs of light, I came home from my Colorado adventure with photos of the Equinox sunrise and sunset, which included mysterious red orbs of light… and, believing more than ever in the daily magic of life.

13 Monkey/Chuen

Greetings on this day of 13 (Ascension), Monkey/CHUEN (Weaver of Time)

Galactic Tone 13
13 assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there and carries the last success to the newest effort.

Monkey/CHUEN is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey's innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult tostay with anything long enough to master it.

Together, 13 Monkey/CHUEN brings completion or greater insight to intentions that were put forth as we begun this Galactic Week under the sign of the Storm/CAUAC, 13 days ago, and help us to clarify and refine new intentions and directions as we will begin the new Galactic Week’s cycle tomorrow. Today is a good day to begin anything new in life.

2009 Spring Equinox Celebration
It was my pleasure to join with fellow Mayan Day Keepers to celebrate the 2009 Spring Equinox in Colorado. Our teacher, Jose Jaramillo, led us in Sacred Fire Ceremony in the tradition of the Maya as passed down by his teacher, Don Alejandro - leader of the Mayan Council in Guatemala. Mayan Day Keepers around the globe joined in the spirit of lak'ech to celebrate this equinox, as well as welcoming in the Mayan New Year - March 21, 2009. Jaramillo's teaching at this event included a showing of his documentary film, Between 2 Worlds, which provides a foundation for greater understanding of the "time of nature" versus the Gregorian calendar. The Gregorian calendar was put forward by man for the primary interest of controlling commerce, and this documentary reveals how it has influenced our materialistic views of life that have separated us from our true Source of spiritual evolution. To learn more about Jose Jaramillo, and to learn more about this documentary, visit http://www.inbetween2worlds.com/.

The new year offers us a special opportunity to put forth our intentions for the Mayan New Year!

8 Transformer/CIMI

Greetings on this day of 8 (Balance/Justice), Transformer/CIMI (Transformer)

Galactic Tone 8
Harmony and balance is the intent of 8, encouraging us to carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. The power of 8 is organization demonstrated in the statement, “as above, so below.” From the simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation.

Transformer/CIMI is the Day Keeper associated with life, death, and rebirth. Death was in the ancient sources considered as the luckiest of days. Those born under the Destiny of CIMI are often very successful in business, and may also be excellent healers who may calmly guide others through their transformation of life, because of their own spiritual strength. They support pregnant women and guide them through the lasting transformations at key period of their lives. Among the Maya, life was generated by death and the contact with ancestors serfed to activate inherent psychic abilities. Their challenge in life is to live it fully and not give in to defeatism. Usually Death persons have the mission to walk the path of their spiritual ancestors aned bring their messages among the living people of this planet and share it with everyone. They have the need to transcend death and to be a World-Bridger between heaven and earth.

The combination of 8 Transformer/CIMI calls us to find the harmonious balance and integrate for transformation and rebirth in accordance to what we have learned through careful consideration – the “as above, so below.” The Transformer encourages us to draw upon the ancient wisdom of the Elders to find the harmony, balance, and justice of 8 for our rebirth and transformation.

7 Serpent/CHICCHAN

Greetings on this day of 7 (mystical), Serpent/Chiccah (Instinctual; Connecting earth bound to heavenly aspirations)

Galactic Tone 7
7 is considered a mystical number and associated with the Jaguar by the Mayans. It is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will. 7 stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and that which is not.

Sensual and dramatic, this Day Keeper Sun embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations, through movement and the creation of time. Serpent opens our hearts and expands us toward service to others. Just as serpents are adaptable and fluid, we are encouraged to approach this day with those attitudes in mind.

The Kin number of the day is similar to the Julian date on the Gregorian calendar. This is the 85 day of the 260 day Mayan year, and one of the 52 “portal days” for activation.

Portal days are time cycle intersections that help facilitate the receptivity of cosmic knowledge. Within the grid of the Tzolk’in that uses the mathematics of 28, connecting portal days to the cycles of the moon through mathematics. This calendar “grid” resembles the strands of our DNA.

On portal days, we feel the effect of two powerful cycles at once. We find that cosmic remembrance is clearer and very activated on these days. We also find major events happen on portal days. (The next portal day falls on the Spring Equinox.)

The combination of 7 Serpent/CHICCHAN offers a foundation for insight – 7 illuminating dark from light, Serpent/CHICCHAN indicating an opening for instinctual wisdom, and all activated by the Green Kin day, suggesting an opening for new knowledge and level of awareness of the connection between heaven and earth.

A good day to be flexible and open to new inspiration.

6 Seed / KAN

Greetings on this day of 6 (Flow) Seed/KAN (Dynamic Activity, Reconnection, Germination)

Galactic Tone 6
Tone 6 facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life. We enter a natural flow with 6 where we feel the exchange of energy through negotiation and response - the movement of volume through space that creates time.

Family, sexual activity and the magic of germination are the characteristics of this sign. Seed is the progress of our intention, which now begins to take root – striving to free itself and family from debt or oppressive patterns of the past. Seed gathers abundance as with a cast net and desires to defend and unite relationships and community through self-awareness and awareness of the secret influences of others.

Just as a seed emerges from the soil during germination, this Day Keeper creates the desire to be visible to the world. KAN embodies commitment and dedication, establishes routine and flow of effort… creating a natural flow of abundance. To generate abundance Seed/KAN must learn to appreciate all gifts and lessons received and conduct profound investigations into self. In the absence of gratefulness and the courage to face oneself Seed finds itself in less and less fertile environments.

KAN is about planting your seeds and allowing them to germinate. Notice where you are not allowing for the growth of your dreams. Don’t wait for the perfect time or place to allow yourself to sprout. If you look for safety in the outer world you will not find i. Don’t get lost in the manifestation process itself. Your life is fertile ground – just plant the seeds and take your first steps toward your desires.

Together 6 and KAN support forward movement and dynamic change. Get ready to burst forth into the Spring of your destiny.

5 Night/AKBAL

Greetings on this 5 (Empowerment), Night/AKBAL (Womb of Creation/Bringer of Dawn)

Galactic Tone 5
At the center of the cube is 5 - and intelligent, organizing force that manages communications, materials, knowledge and application. 5 gathers what is needed and can probe into the core of any situation to reveal what is needed.

The Day Keeper Night/AKBAL is the bringer of the dawn. AKBAL brings illumination to the road of life, dispelling insecurities and doubts born of darkness and the subconscious mind. Night/AKBAL carries us through the darkness - the womb of creation - to bring forth new solutions and artistic impression. Night voyages of dreams build confidence, happiness and a sense of well-being. We must enter the darkness to emerge into the light.

Together, 5 and Akbal encourage us forward, by revealing the unknown and dispelling doubts by illuminating what is real.

Give thanks for the inner healing of this day.

5 akbal
4 ik was the planting day within the painted shrine staffs of the kitchen garden and tonight the seeds planted, morphed into the black jaguar, who roams all planted and domesticated grounds reminding us of wild origins and pulse facilitation into the new. 

4-Wind / IK

Greetings on this 4 (Stabalize), Wind/IK (Communication)

Galactic Tone 4
4 brings the energy of stability and establishes volume and orientation such as the stability of the cube, the 4 directions, and the dimensions of height, length, depth and breadth. With the support of 4 we can measure, define, and negotiate freedoms and boundaries - rules of play for a game, work, or relationship.

Wind / IK
Wind illustrates the breath of spirit. Wind moves us forward into dreams, plans and ideas with the power to disseminate (plant) the seeds of our inspiration. Wind as breath, supports communications and negotiations that are open to change and adaptation. "Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles - weather, erosion, and cultural change. The color of Wind/IK is White, representing the North (wisdom, mind, thought), which encourages us to look at our creation under the light of analysis and form, rather than through our emotional filters.

Together, 4 and Wind / IK define and outline the form for our intent (stabalize), move us to take a realistic and thoughtful (wisdom) accounting of the best way to move forward, with the breath of communication - we negotiate and disseminate the inspiration of our intent. New information, inspiration, and reflection shows us the way to the adaptation and change that supports the growth of new ideas and the manifestation of our intentions. IK is about changeability, and is also linked with magic and the priesthood. IK is about needing to understand the world and environment within which we live. Though this changeability may present us with some difficulty in decision-making, we are encouraged to confront our own Truths and find the fertile soil that will nurture and integrate our True intensions.

On this day, the breath of our communications sends thought and ideas as if on the winds. Be open to the change and adaptation that will aid us in planting our seeds in fertile soil.

3 Crocodile / IMIX

Greetings on this 3 (Action/Activation), Crocodile / IMIX (Beginning of all things)

Galactic Tone 3
The energy of 3 moves us forward into action through movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. In days 1 and 2, we set our intention, then dreamt of what it could be, naturally moving us forward into the next step - action. Movement and communication will play a key role in today's activities, establishing an agreement between any Point A and any Point B.

The Tzolkin calendar in its highest vibration, would provide us the energy to succeed. So, 3 also brings an activation to create a natural flow of energy.

Crocodile / IMIX
Crocodile / IMIX is simply the beginning of all things. IMIX receives primordial messages in random order. Practical application (movement) provides focus for the highest use of energies. IMIX is nurturing and works hard to provide security for family and friends. As a Red Day Keeper sign, this Sun represents the direction of the East (inspiration).

Together 3 and IMIX provide the beginning of movement, communication, a dawn (East) for inspiration, and an activation - the vibration that precedes any action.
Crocodiles who follow their heart, are seen as genius. We are directed to follow our hearts to access our true brilliance.

On my Native American path, my teacher, Joseph Rael - Beautiful Painted Arrow, taught the way to manifestation of anything was through breath, matter and movement. Breath was 1 - the inspiration and intent, Matter was 2 - we dreamed and played in the universe of possibility, and 3 is the Movement - the action and activation that move us forward to our dream.

Greet this morning's sun with acknowledgement and appreciation of its gift of inspiration and activation.

2 Sun/AHAU

Greetings this 2 (Polarity; Stabilize, Mysterious, Charismatic), Sun/AHAU (Loving, Devoted, Consistent)

Galactic Tone 2
The purpose of 2 is to stabilize energies and intentions put forth from the starting point of 1. The polarity of two separates the light from the dark - the point where we separate from the source of our inspiration to become the Creator. This duality creates the friction to become the "cosmic heat" for our

The Sun/AHAU is the highest evolutionary Day Keeper of the Tzolkin calendar, and embodies solar and universal consciousness. "Ahau helps life the consciousness of humanity with the brilliance of its destiny - a dreamer who opens the door to a new vision for humanity." It is the light from which we emerge and to which we will return.

The nature of Sun/AHAU is to reach for high ideals. With a strong focus and commitment to realize their dreams, Ahau is motivated by dreaming beautiful visions of what life and relationship can be. There can be difficulties in close relationships if their expectations are unrealistic or too difficult to obtain.

The combination of 2 Sun/AHAU calls us to anchor our intentions from 1 and dream the vision of their manifestation. In duality, we will turn it both ways to compare Independence vs. Dependence - what we have received as inspiration from the Day Keeper Storm - we received the inspiration from Source, and now dream of the Creation that is now ours to define, refine and manifest.

We are recommended to keep life simple - to go with the flow of our dreams and intent - to see the possibilities of what we may bring to our Creation, without over-burdening ourselves with unrealistic expectations. It is a day to stabilize and dream the dream of our creation.

1 Storm/CAUAC

1 (Unity/Initiation) Storm/CAUAC (Water Blessings)
Greetings on this 1st day of Unity and Intention; Storm (CAUAC) the Thunderbeing

Raise your most wished-for dream to the Sun for its blessing!

Galactic Tone 1
The beginning of all things, and the time for new (or renewed) intentions is the energy of one, called 'Hun' by the Maya. One reminds us of our unity with Spirit, and offers the source of inspiration for possibility and intention. As you greet the Sun on this day, be prepared to receive the gift of the creative force that will guide you from your beginning point of this Galactic week, through the sacred flow of manifestation and transformation.

Storm / CAUAC
Open your heart to the morning Sun and RECEIVE the quickening of transformation from the Day Keeper Storm/CAUAC. Each succeeding Sun throughout this Galactic week, will guide you to your manifestation of your inspired intentions.

As we enter the Galactic week of the 2009 Spring Equinox, Storm initiates us with a water blessing. Day Keeper Storm / CAUAC supports lightening quick transformations and rebirth. Water and moon are associated with the feminine aspects of nature and spirit. It is a catalyst for revelation as it tears through the veil to further illuminate what is real. Storm brings quikening through thunder and lightening, and reminds us of the ecstasy of freedom. Cauac's activation is impossible to avoid. Storm encourages us forward to novel experiences. Combined with one, this Day Sign suggests a mentally active day - and one of inspiration that guides us to that next higher step in our transformation.

The 2009 Spring Equinox
We ARE in the time of great transformation. The prophecies of the Tzolkin define this Spring Equinox as a first step of major transformation and reawakening... an activations that will follow on each succeeding Solstice and Equinox this year. As we move closer to critical mass we are being prepared to carry the higher vibrations necessary to truly remember who we are. Day Keepers will be joining across the planet to receive a new activation of spirit.

Mark your calendar to celebrate this special day and be open to receive it's blessing. Join in the spirit of lak'ech as you greet the Sun of this Spring Equinox... bringing us to the next higher step in our spiritual evolution.

13 Flint/Mirror (ETZNAB)

Greetings on this 13th day of Ascension; Flint/Mirror (Etznab) the Mirror of Reality for Reflection and Introspection

Galactic Tone 13
The energy of thirteen calls us to return to source as we experience ascension, integrated through processing of experiences of the completing Galactic week. What where your intentions 13 days ago? What experiences and information were called forward to experience, refinement, and new understanding? Insights that you receive today support completion, and raise awareness that will call you to the next step in your journey.

Flint/Mirror (ETZNAB)
The Day Keeper Etznab provides support for “overcoming obstacles, personal limitations, and finding solutions” to long held problems. We are directed to “seize the moment” under the energy of Etznab, supported by the power for transcendence and enlightenment. Today is a good day to open yourself to new inspiration, new ways of thinking, and to transcend outworn beliefs and limitations – through the sum total of your experience over the passing 13-day Galactic week.

Don’t these two go together beautifully? They illustrate the support that surrounds your journey as you keep in time with the sacred Tzolkin.

How can you work with Tzolkin time? I would compare it closely with working with the Moons in my own past experience. Farmers know to plant during the new moon and to harvest at the full moon. This has worked in my life for many years – I planted my seeds of intention at the new moon, and cleared the wheat from the chaff (discharged and healed) at the full moon. Working with the Tzolkin is very similar, following the flow of energies that build and transcend over the 13-day Galactic week.

As a Day Keeper, I am eager to greet the Sun each morning. The Day Keepers of the day brings clarity to the gifts that will guide me through the day – the areas highlighted for my greatest good that I will feel most evidently surrounding me. I only have to feel the Sun upon me to feel its soul connection. As I receive this blessing filled with love and light, I turn to the West – where Day Keepers still await the Sun’s dawning – and send my light and love on in the spirit of lak’ech – I am another yourself. Try it. You may be amazed at what happens.

12 Earth (CABAN) - GREEN KIN 77

Greetings on this 12 day of Understanding; Earth (CABAN) Keeper of Garden Earth

Today is a Green Kin day, indicating a portal for activation. Green Days are noted on the Tzolkin calendar and follow a cycle that becomes more frequent as we approach the center of the 260 Tzolkin year. How does it feel?

My experience with Green Days has been that of feeling grounded and energized. 5th Force activation that is accented on these days, gives special support to the energies of the day, and may provide new insight and healing.

The Galactic Tone sacred number 12 is a "gift of great capability" for introspection. As we are reaching the conclusion of the current Galactic Week, begun Thursday, February 26, 2009, 1 Transformer - the experiences throughout the week have accumulated into new awareness. If you set forth intentions at the beginning of this week - 12 should be a day that reveals this information from a new perspective.

This Galactic week also introduced the beginning of the second 65 days on the Mayan 260 Tzolkin year, which brings greater form to movement initiated at the beginning of the Tzolkin year.

Today's Day Keeper, Earth (CABAN), is known as the "keeper of Garden of Earth." Connecting with the Earth's energies today provides "powers of creations and memories of ancient wisdom." What will you learn? Experience the dynamic forces of nature to make the connection with the natural order of life. Earth (CABAN) has the power for greater understanding, as indicated by Galactic Tone 12. It is a good day to be in gratitude for Mother Earth.

Love in a Recipe - Mom's Chocolate Sheet Cake

One of the things I love about my Mom, is that everyone who enters the door is offered something wonderful from her kitchen - this is my favorite thing. This is seriously one of the best recipes in my entire collection - the fastest and BEST chocolate cake you will ever lay hands on. You just can't screw this up!

Mom's Chocolate Sheet Cake

The Cake...
2 Cups Flour
2 Cups Sugar
1 Stick Butter
5 Tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Soda
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Oil

First - preheat the oven to 400 degrees (that is not a typo).
Get a big sauce pan, you are going to mix the batter in there. Melt the butter with the oil, water, and cocoa and bring to a boil. Take off the stove immediately, and add all the dry ingredients, EXCEPT THE SODA. Dissolve the soda in the 1/2 Cup of Buttermilk, then add this, the eggs, and vanilla and mix till smooth. Pour batter into a sheet cake pan - those big pans that are a little deeper than a cookie sheet. (I line mine with parchment paper, or grease and dust it with flour.) Bake for 20 minutes ONLY, or until it springs back.

The frosting...
You are going to use the same saucepan, so rinse and start over for the frosting. This doesn't take long, and you pour it over the cake while it is still hot - only 5 minutes out of the oven... so I usually start this about 5 minutes BEFORE the cake is done.

1 Stick Butter
5 Tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa
1/3 Cup Buttermilk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Box (2 1/2 Cups) Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup chopped pecans (optional)

Melt the butter with the cocoa til well dissolved. Add the buttermilk and vanilla - mix. Add the powdered sugar and keep this on a low burner... just to keep it from setting while you are mixing. By now, your cake should be out of the oven - add the nuts if you want them in the frosting - then pour this over the cake. (The frosting sets up like a homemade MMMMM fudge and holds all the moisture in the cake... will stay moist for days like that.)

OMG - Never baked this for ANYONE that they didn't go ape over it. You can leave out the cinnamon, though just a tad is unrecognizable - just "something" good people can't quite put their finger on. TRY IT.

I'm packing boxes for my move, and just couldn't bear the thought of not being able to find this recipe that I love so much. Hope you enjoy it. AND THANK YOU MOM!
