MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Under the direction of Dog/OC we will be guided to bring our Love to the World. Dog/OC will demonstrate Love that places no conditions, and demands no return. The Dog/OC trecena will guide us through expressions of God’s Unconditional Love so we can feel it and experience True Love.
My balcony has gone to the birds this Summer. The flowers have grown a bit unruly and with birds scattering my daily offerings of seed everywhere, there’s been no reason to sweep it up. Most every inch of the balcony has become a potential feeding place. Yesterday, the Stellar’s Jays that are always so illusive, brought their new family by – the father, recognizable by a few shaggy feathers on the wings, Mom, a bit more neatly groomed, and 3 youngsters – all at once. It was quite a visit. I’m enjoying every minute of the last few weeks of Summer. Though, I can’t get close enough to the window to catch a photo without disturbing them, I see them watching me in a way that seems to acknowledge me as the giver.
It brings awareness to all the ways we give and receive Love. The birds’ mere presence is a gift of Love.
We each have our own perspective about what feels loving. I would so love it if Shadow were a lap cat, but she’s not. She tolerates the occasional pickup, but that’s not what she wants. She loves standing on her own and whisking back and forth offering caresses with her tail. Or, I feel her bond of love when I discover her in the middle of the night, sleeping just beyond an arms reach from my pillow. I think our love has grown because there’s an acknowledgement of what the other needs, and an adjustment made to the way love is expressed between us.
The Dog/OC trecena is all about Love, which is the substance of our evolution. The first trecena of the New Year grounded us with God’s vision of our creation, and we’ve just emerged from a trecena that guided us to see our unity with Mother Earth. Our next important lessons are about our primary objective… our most important sacred intentions to exchange the Light of Godly Love.
There are two portal days in this trecena, one on 4 Reed/BEN’s stabilizing channel to Spirit, and the other on 7 Wisdom/CIB, perfectly balancing us through the wisdom of our ancestors. Portals magnify energy and give us a glimpse beyond the veil. We will know the meaning of love through both the eyes of the Creator and through the wisdom of our ancestors. Dog/OC will demonstrate God’s Pure Love that we were created to emulate.
Dog/OC always calls my thoughts to the Love you’ve shown me. Your mere presence is a gift of Love. Through your support I am finding my way to Be in the world. Your presence here has given my life a whole new purpose. That seems the greatest gift of Love anyone could receive. I Love You.
Dog/OC offers us a new beginning through a 13-day trecena about devotion, companionship, self-sacrifice and unconditional love. The work of Tone 1 is to open our hearts to receive a Divine Inspiration that will lead us to our Sacred Intention for this cycle. This is a day for being present to listen for a message of Love from the Heart.
To all my relations, may we open our hearts to a new experience of Love. May we allow God’s Love to be the steel that sharpens our own Sword of Love so that it is made capable to reach the heart. May we surrender our ways of giving and receiving Love so that we can magnify Pure Love’s healing Light.

THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC
1 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/ KANA’TI), Kin 170
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with.
Dog/OC: Loyalty and faithfulness that survives beyond death. This was the first day of creation energy in this 4th world, setting 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.
Cherokee, Wolf/Kana’ti – O’Oj: Dog/OC is a symbol of Sirius (Dog star) and Antares; one or the other is always visible but never at the same time. Wolf is our brother, shares our very roots. All dogs are domesticated wolves, companionship and guidance; connecting a link between the worlds; wolf is the day sign associated with teachers, pathfinders and transformers.
NEW DAY KEEPERS: My sacred intention for the new Tzolk’in round is to offer more personal support. I will be offering an Introductory Guided Course for Day Keepers in the near future. Contact me if this is something you would be interested in! Also, if you’d just like help identifying your Day Sign, I’m more than happy to help. Blessings, in lak’ech Debra (firstname.lastname@example.org)
