MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
8 Offering/MULUC is the Holy Day of Atonement. Tone 8 is the Peak Day of Transformation, made possible by a Divine Intervention. Tone 8 equals the score through Divine Justice. 8 is the Day of Abundance. Our effort is weighed for a Gift of Reciprocity. As Divine Justice, we will always receive more than we’ve given.
Offering/MULUC is a symbol of Water Everywhere from the cosmos to our tears. Water is the substance used for Blessing, Purification, Healing, and Holy Baptism as the Element that holds the Ether of Spirit. Today, in Oneness with the Creator, we are touched by the Elements of Fire and Water.
This is a day to Honor your emotions and the emotions of others. This is a day for opening our Heart in a Sacred Exchange with the Creator.
The glyph illustrates a single drop of water raised above the Whole. Through an Offering we are raised up to be Seen by the Creator, who Knows the Condition of our Heart. The Creator sees us in the perfection of an effort. Once again, we are gathered close to experience Unconditional Love.
This uphill climb of Spiritual Growth was harder than I expected. I was a little off-balance straddling between two worlds. A climb of Forgiveness presented some circumstances that didn’t “deserve” my forgiveness. It’s amazing how easily I can Forget that I’m guilty too. Living unconsciously in our Human Nature we are all “guilty.”
We can learn to Forgive as our Offering to the Creator. We can volunteer to bear the burdens of Humanity. Offering/MULUC is a sacrifice made from the Heart. The Archetype of the Wounded Healer, the “Christ Spirit” volunteers to bear the burden of the whole. He Forgives “because they don’t know what they’re doing.”
The suffering in the world is the result of our Human Unconsciousness. “The Conscious” who have turned to a relationship with the Creator are the ones that hold the Highest Advantage. We are the Most Beholding to Pay Back and Pay Forward. On a day of Oneness and Feelings we will Know through our Spiritual Gifts that we are seen by the Creator.
Through a sharing of our Emotions with the Creator, we are raised up to be seen as we really are. Through authenticity, we learn the meaning of Unconditional Love. Every Offering of our authentic self to the Creator, will be reciprocated through a Sacred Exchange of Light. We may hear it, feel it, or Know it through our Spiritual Gifts.
Our own Emotions are healed when our Suffering has Meaning and Purpose. Our Forgiveness can be transformed into a Divine Service when we volunteer to Forgive on behalf of a Divine Creator.
The Cherokee Day Sign the River refers to all the stars in the Milky Way – the place where the dogs ran. The River is the “Fountain of Life” that restores us to our condition of perfection. Like a baptism in the River, all our karmic debts are washed away. The “one drop” can manifest transformation on a mass level as it’s Light ripples through the Whole. Those born under this sign are said to march to a different drummer, seeing the good in everything.
The River asks us to let go and let the Current of Spirit direct our course. We can approach life as a Divine and Wild Ride with near misses, spills, and sometimes disaster. Every Human that chooses it will arrive at the same Divine Destiny, crossing the stars of the Milky Way where the dogs ran.
To all my relations, may we give Thanks for Life and the Consciousness to Experience it in so many different ways. May we acknowledge the effort of our Spiritual Growth is worthy of Divine Justice. May we open our hearts to be transformed by a Baptism of Spiritual Consciousness.
in lak’ech, i am another you

8 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
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”.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The River is the “Fountain of Life” and represents the fluid of the cosmos to fluids in the body, with the energy to clear all karmic debts, personally and on a mass level with fluidity and grace. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
