8 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/WOLF/KANA’TI)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.
Dog/OC: Courageous, loyal and warm-hearted, very alert and valiant, people born of Dog are respected for their sense of justice and their protection. People born of the sun sign Dog are very sensual and know how to enjoy life. Playfulness and a good understanding of the basic human nature lead to prosperity for Dog. Dogs are good team players who love to travel and have a keen sense of their position in society. Dogs are ambitious and will take opportunities when they offer themselves, including infidelities. Dog persons share the nature of coyotes, spies, wolves and lawyers
Cherokee, 8 WOLF/KANA’TI: Wolf’s symbol is Sirius (Dog star) and Antares, one or the other always visable but never at the same time. Wolf is our brother, shares our very roots. All dogs are domesticated wolves, companionship and guidance. Connecting link between the worlds. One who inspires loyalty, diplomacy and sense of humor with unlimited potential. A teacher, healer, pathfinder and transformer. Sharp as obsidian, gentle as a lamb. Totem -Dog. Loyalty and faithfulness that survives beyond death. This was the first day of creation energy in this 4th world, sets the energy for love, loyalty and faithfulness on the 5200 year cycle. Heart chakra energy is involved so that we can move to the state of “unconditional love” with compassion. All sexual desire issues that are not in harmony will surface to be cleared.
As Above, So Below
Both Galactic Tone 8 and Dog/OC speak to us about justice and harmony. The teaching, “As above, so below” illustrates that what is held as intention by the higher self, is reflected in the physical plane. This principle offers justice and harmony for all.
The power is not in the intention itself, but in the attention we are willing to invest into it. We have to first ‘see’ the completion of our intention in Spirit (above) for it to be created on the physical plane (below). As we are able to see and fully-experience our dream we are empowered to make it real.
Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Mark 11:24
Believing isn’t easy. Our greatest challenge is to simply believe in our dreams and in our own unlimited power. By nature, we need to see some evidence to form the belief. Really seeing our dream and believing it can become real, requires work and an investment of our personal time.
How much time do we actually spend, seeing our dreams? The outer would have us believe that daydreaming is a waste of time, yet it is the very key to creation. This is where our Spirit Tools come in handy. We are nurtured by ANY daily practice that provides a time to reflect and be centered in our gratitude.
Here we are able to realize the Truth – that we are unconditionally loved and guided, and that our dreams are the result of a larger divine purpose – worthy to come true. Seeing our own divine power as co-creators is a seed of faith we are capable to grow.
I began a new daily practice at the time of my birthday as I was choosing my seeds of intention for the coming year. I was willing to invest everything I could to turn some things around in my life. My most important new daily practice was begun by simply NOT turning on the TV in the morning. Starting my day in silence became the most critical element in my daily practice.
I start each day lighting candles and burning sage and sweetgrass as a symbolic way to clear the air and to call sacred the time I would spend with myself in Spirit. I turn to the Mayan calendar for the inspiration of the day, though one could turn to any resource or faith for inspiration.
This was a fairly simple practice to put into place, yet it has lead to some profound personal changes. I found a new freedom from commercial programming. I realized how I was constantly irritated by programming that was telling me “what everyone thinks” and “what’s on trend” – i.e., what I need to buy to be equal to everyone else.
Suddenly, I was getting so much more out of the time I set aside for myself. I didn’t WANT to turn on the TV because I was too busy in the process of learning and growing. The whole attraction of watching TV simply fell away. I couldn’t remember why it was so difficult to turn off.
To all my relations, I am grateful for the Gifts of Spirit so freely available whenever we choose to turn to them. Show me a way to grow my seed of faith into something more beautiful so I may learn and know how powerful we really are.
in lak’ech, i am another you
grateful on this Thanksgiving Day for the blessing of your presence in my life
