MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 8 is the High Holy day of the 13-day trecena. We are creating the Substance of a Spirit Connection under the Guidance of Night/AKBAL. Tone 8 brings the intention of balance and harmony through equity and justice. Dog/OC is the Day Sign who embodies the Spirit of Unconditional Love.
Today’s message is inspired by a synchronicity of Spirit. There’s a very dear Daykeeper in Guatemala near Lake Atitlán. She has become a special long-distance friend and I want to send something from my hand to hers. Today I discovered the difficulties of delivery to her location. Anything of value must be declared, while a package of any value is subject to be stolen.
I had to think of something that would have zero monetary value and could fit into an envelope. My thoughts went in an entirely different direction. I was inspired by Spirit of ways it could be more than just a letter, yet still have no monetary value at all. Gifts of Spirit have no monetary value and can’t be bought or sold.
Currency is a great separator, classifier, and devastator. Our cash donations don’t satisfy the real needs of Spirit for Receiver or Giver… especially if the donation is made to a faceless organization, and the gift delivered by someone else. The good we can do is limited to our budget and there is no way made for an equal exchange. Sometimes its the only way.
The Real Life Heroes of today are the people who invest their direct service – who offer something face-to-face. This is something we’re all equal to offer. This is how communities were once held together. We’ve lost sight of the blessing that comes when we give in a way that honors our equity and dignity. There are opportunities all around us if we listen.
The intention of Tone 8 is to seek Harmony through the Justice of Equality. When we are giving something of ourselves, we all hold gifts of equal value. When we give directly, the return is an outpouring of Unconditional Love, our purest Connection to Spirit.
To all my relations, may we Divine a Gift of Spirit that we might give. It could be as simple as Listening or Being There. May we know the Joy that can’t be bought, when we bring the gift that can only be valued by the Heart.
in lak’ech, i am another you
I am grateful for the blessing of your presence in my life.

THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL
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, 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.
NEW DAY KEEPERS: My sacred intention for the new Tzolk’in round is to offer more personal support to those who may want to learn more about ways to draw personal meaning from the calendar. 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)
