Was A Purpose Given on the Day You Were Born?

Divination is a world-wide practice, be it through tea leaves, Tarot, numbers, prophetic dreams, stars or planets. Yet to consciously divine one’s own purpose can be difficult.

What am I here to do or be? What is my purpose? Here is good news. You are living your purpose whether you are conscious of it or not.

This month the Mystic Members deepen in our inquiry into divine purpose, often inherent in the day we were born and the name we were given.

Some years ago I was introduced to a version of the Mayan Calendar. It is impossible for a Westerner to grasp the complexity of the Mayan’s uniquely sacred, profoundly embodied, and highly mathematical “mytho-poetic” time-teller. (What a mouthful!). Nonetheless I was enamored by days and months not as roman numerals but energetic meaning symbols.

To the Mayan’s time has a body to which they give utmost respect. This “time body” is lunar.  Given that Cynthia means daughter or goddess of the moon, it seemed fair to give a moon system a fair shake.

A woman named Li showed me a version of the calendar that syncs with the Gregorian calendar. This calendar indicates that I was born on a Blue Galactic Eagle day, the signature” of my destiny. A Blue Galactic Eagle? I am seeing wings, big ones. This “dreamspelll”calendar suggests that

  • Blue as one of four colors coded into the calendar whose basic pattern is “to transform.”
  •  “Galactic” energy operating through the essence of integrity (being at one) with power to harmonize (blend) by modeling.
  • The Eagle’s essence is Mindfulness at work creating through vision.

The calendar proposes that my purpose is to Harmonize in order to Create, modeling Mind(fulness) to seal the output of Vision  with the Galactic tone of Integrity. I am guided by the power of Vision.

Is this my purpose? It is certainly something upon which to meditate. Click on this tool to  investigate your own birthday on this calendar.

On the other hand the truer Guatemalan Maya calendar does not merge with the West. Time and space are not concerned with “years.” In this calendar I am born on an 11 Ben or Reed Mat Day.(I am definitely an 11!)  Click here to find your own day sign. I see a lot of accuracy in this reading.

If I am created to naturally synch with time, space, and energy then I shall see myself in many a thing. When I sync to symbols, symbols sync to me. This does not make anything true or false.

This also means that the most creative power of divination continues to be in my own hands, heart, and mind as I relate to all I encounter. I must divine
1) my everyday human purpose
2) my highest purpose.
3) and how they intersect.

My purpose? I claim it to be this. On an everyday level I seek to foster freedom. On the highest level? With love and  mercy to uphold the integrity of body and soul.

Put together? I foster freedom with love and mercy upholding the integrity of body and soul.

I would love to read your purpose or the meanings in your name or birthday in the comments.

  1. Thank you, Cynthia. I found the Mayan personality/person profile to be congruent and true to my journey through the years. Affirmation is lovely, isn’t it! At this elder stage, there is a shift from searching to even more actualization of my gifts as healer and spiritual teacher (a bit like you). Thank you for what you are doing.
    Tonight I’m going to hear Michael Mead speak about inner genius, pointing people in the same direction you are. “First surfacing during youth, the inner genius tries to become known throughout one’s life. Genius calls to us at critical junctures, when change is required and in moments of awakening. Whether younger or older our job is to answer the call. For, enduring happiness can be found more in satisfying one’s inner spirit than in simply finding fame or acquiring a fortune.”

    Hi Cynthia–
    Thanks for sharing this. I’m not sure why…but I’m definitely drawn to this Mayan calendar stuff.
    Here’s a quote from a fun part of my personality profile. It’s definitely a direction I feel pulled toward…not necessarily there yet…on my way… It’s a Life Practice right?

    I am a Tone 3 described as:


    Movement, Communication. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. The basic movement being a vibration, Three persons are rhythmic to the core. They are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motion of all kinds. The frequency of three is filled with light, movement and activity. It lightens the darker energies that pervade the world today. Tone three frequency can restore the spirit, put life and situations into perspective and bring balance. People born with the Tone Three energy will tend to ignore the problems of life. A Tone Three day is a good day to communicate, express, move and stir the pot!

    Woo Hoooooo! Something in you definitely knows that this is true to you. It is also the case that purpose is often what our soul longs to manifest. It is our quest, not necessarily what we are most gifted at. That is why we can give our life to the quest as you have done these last few years in InterPlay!
