8 Dog / OC – Vision Quest: Day 8 of 13

The invitation and introduction is offered on the journal post for 1 Night/AKBAL. Suggestions for daily practice are offered on the Vision Quest Ceremony page.


8 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

The Akbal trecena guides an Awakening of Spirit. Akbal is raising our Consciousness to the Voice of Spirit that speaks to us in our Dreams.

Through the first 6 Tones of the trecena we accomplished a  new phase of Spiritual Growth. Our work was to face our Unknown, holding Faith in the Creator’s Love and Correspondence. Today, we are repaid for our effort. A Dream we Intended and held Faith in is Acknowledge in a Sacred Exchange.

Tone 8 holds the Intention of Justice – the Creator’s Intention they every Human live in Harmony and Equity. No Human was given advantage over another to Know the Truth of Divine Love. We were designed to Know the Truths of our own Spiritual Being. Our Destiny is the journey and the time we bear in the process of that discovery.

Dog/OC lies at the center of the Tzolk’in side-by-side with Monkey/CHUEN. Together they reflect the two central characteristics of the Creator’s personality. The Maya used archetypes to convey a personality that could speak more than words. to explain through illustration an understanding more complete than a written description. Dog was offered by the Maya as an illustration of the Unconditional Love of God.

The Intention of 8 Dog/OC is to return the Divine Justice of Knowing God’s Love. Carried out by Divine Intervention, our Transformation begins through an elevated Consciousness of Knowing we are Loved. A Vision Quest is always a worthy Intention, as a Dream of Higher Consciousness of Spirit. We were created for the purpose of relationship.

The more we Know the Creator, the more we Know Love that never fails, and the more we can Believe we were created with a Divine Meaning and Purpose. When we look within our own Spirit… we see our Real Beauty. Central to our own Spiritual Nature, is a fundamental Instinct of Love. We are Drawn by Love and Drawn “To Love.” Upon this Divine Intention as part of our Design, we can know the Truth that we were created to do more than just survive.

The Creator’s Divine Justice of our Design is that we would be Conscious of our Gifts and Use Them for their Highest Purpose. The path to Spirit is a “hard road of life.” If it were “easy” the power could be easily corrupted. Only by placing our Highest Value on Unconditional Love, can we Hope to wield the Power of Divine Authority.

Doc/OC wants us to realize that Love is the Greatest Power in the World. With Love as our Intention, we accomplish our Greatest Dreams. When we are Creating as an Exchange of Love, we join the Collective Vibration of Pure Spirit. Pure Love is the vibration that calls all Lower Vibrations into sympathy. As we Create the Joy of Love, we’re drawn incrementally closer to the Divine Vibration of Love. Our Spirits are connected in vibration. As we increase our frequency of Love, the Whole is Drawn to the Light.

The “hardest” effort we make is the Choice of our Own Free Will. The practice of a Vision Quest is an Intention to “Live Wholly in Spirit.” In the 4 days of Sacred Ceremony, we sacrifice our “Life of Living in the World” to be reborn in our “Spirit Life.” Today we receive Our Divine Justice in seeing Love as the most important thing. It’s our Destiny to Know this Truth. In the end, Every Human realizes that Love was the only thing that mattered. Love’s the only thing we carry with us and the Light we leave behind.

Dog/OC is Faithful, said to be the nahaul that stays with us even after death to help us make our journey back to the stars. The Milky Way was said to be the “place where the dogs ran.” Love is Eternal. The ups and downs of living in the world become immaterial to the Joy of Experiencing Love.

To all my relations, may we Acknowledge the Creator’s Gift of Unconditional Love is Enough… that we were given everything we could ever need to find our Happiness. Like Dog, may we be a protector of the whole pack, taking care of one another – especially those struggling to survive. May we be the Voice for those who can’t speak for themselves.

in lak’ech, I am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN


I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year.  Today is the 21st day started on 11 Jaguar/IX. Today on 5 Jaguar/IX gifts us with an Empowerment of Gratitude.

Since Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Gratitude, it seems right and good to begin and end every 21 days on Jaguar/IX. So, today will be both Day 21 of one ceremony, and also Day 1 of the next.  (Our next 21-Days of Gratitude begins 5 Jaguar/IX (Kin 174) and ends on 12 Jaguar/IX (Kin 194), a day of Understanding the Magic of Gratitude.

21-Days of Gratitude: Day 17

I’m grateful that Love is the Healing Balm of all suffering.

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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page.

  1. Greetings Debra

    Last days, I started translate some texts about the nahuals of the Tzolkin Calendar, which come from the document I told you about before (Tzolkin Calendar, compilation of texts and information).
    I’d like to share them, if you agree, as comment of your daily posts. I can start today (2018 01 15) for the Kin 9-Chuen. These texts mention each nahual’s name in Maya Q’iche language but i wrote their names in Yucatec Maya and English. It seems to me that today’s Q’iche Maya start their Tzolkin calendar with Chuen (B’atz’) and not Imix (Imox).

    Many blessings on you. Here, the sun is rising up. It’s 08:37 am and the sky is cloudy. In lak’ech (I am another you).

    • Thank you, Philippe. My teaching came from the Yucatec tradition. Each region has their own way. Yucatec and K’iche share the same Kin numbers. Also, one honors South to North and the other North to South, in the way they layout their sacred fire ceremony. Many blessings, in lak’ech, Debra

  2. The Maya see the heavens as a mirror reflection of Earth… like the pyramids are placed in Egypt as mirror reflection of Orion. So perhaps one tradition reflects from the Above and the other from Below. in lak’ech, Debra

  3. Hi Phillipe – I’ve decided I’d rather not include the K’iche as a daily feature. I started out with the choice to leave the teaching of all the calendars to the PhD gurus, which I am NOT. There’s so much to know, and I know multiple calendars confused me. Though, I’d love to add the source you found as a reference link on the daykeeper resources page. That’s where I’ve been pointing people to sources I’m familiar with. Thank you. Debra
