This is a great way to get started on the path, or as a daily practice for understanding the interaction of the tones and tribes!

Every day has a signature. Every day the signature changes. Every signature is composed of a tone and a tribe. There are 260 different possible signatures and combinations of the tones and tribes. This is called one spin or cycle of the Tzolkin (zol keen). As a starting practice, you can use the charts below to findout what is happening on any given day as long as you know the signature of the day.

So, here's how it works:
1. find out the signature of the day Tone and tribe
2. the tone asks what's happening for today
3. the tribe answers with the archetypal intrigue or movement for the day's energies
4. live through the day with the questions ansd answers running around inside your head!
5. OR, sign up for the daily conscious burritos! and get them online in your email every day. Then its alot more fun!

Every time a tone appears, it asks a question about how something is being created, managed or transformed. As each day, Wavespell, or moon cycle moves, the tones are always checking in on the progress in our lives. Notice where the Wavespell tones show up and watch all the levels of cycle unfold. In order to find the answers to the questions posed by the tones of the Wavespell , we consult to the tribes for the answer...

...and Answers


The answers we seek are found in the symbols which represent the archetypes of human evolution. The twenty tribes are the wayshowers and benchmarks for this evolutionary process. For the signature of each day, answer the question of the tone with the phrase that represents the tribe. Through this alchemy of movement and measure, you will discover an entirely new way of interacting with the signature of each day. You will discover days that are very auspicious for particular activities, and the unfolding of each day attracts new energies and situations into our lives. Becoming aware of the unfolding synchronicities is a spectacular aspect of following these interlacing cycles.
