MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 brings the energy to Stabilize a new climb of Spiritual Growth. Related to the cube, the most stable of forms, Tone 4 offers orientation, a sense of direction, and the parameters within we are capable to manifest our Intention. The Deer/MANIK trecena is inspiring us to serve the Whole as an Agent of Divine Authority.
Dog/OC resides with Monkey/CHUEN at the center of the Tzolk’in. Together, they reflect characteristics central to the Creator that were shared with Humanity. The Day Signs guide a way to accomplish each Intention.
Dog/OC is the Day Sign of Unconditional Love, and Monkey/CHUEN is a Creator. Our Divine Life Purpose and Soul Mission is to be Creators of Unconditional Love.
4 Dog/OC offers the direction to build a foundation on Love. Residing in the North, the Direction of the Ancestors and our connection to their Wisdom. This is a day to Honor the Old Ones that preserved the Sacred Wisdom that is passed down as our Inheritance.
GLOBAL BURNER DAY: Burner days mark a release of built-up residual energy that can generate stress that impacts our relationships. The Fire Ceremony is carried out by the Mayan priest for the purpose of restoring Harmony and Balance in the Community. 4 Dog/OC re-establishes the solid ground of Love as our Foundation. Dog/OC demonstrates the Unconditional Love we are meant to share as our Meaning and Purpose.
Faithfulness: Dog/OC is faithful even beyond death. The Dog is said to stay by our side on the journey back to the stars. The Milky Way was called “the place where the dogs ran.” Dog is a devoted companion, steadfast and true. As a pack animal, Dog is committed to the well-being of the whole, seeing each member of the pack as one of the Family. Dog/OC is the one we turn to who is lways in our corner. Dog will always be waiting at the door.
Affectionate: Dog/OC looks for every opportunity to share its Love. Dog finds its Joy in Love and spreads it around. Sharing Love is Dog’s first Intention at every greeting. Dog doesn’t withhold its Love when it meets rejection, it saves it for later and moves on to the next nearest opportunity. Dog offers the same affection when it returns to offer it again.
Optimistic: Dog/OC relishes the Joy of Living. Dog loves every experience and finds joy in the sights, sounds, and smells of Mother Earth. Dog sees an opportunity for Love around every corner. The thrill of all life’s experiences is reason enough for Dog to Love Life. The Dog believes in the Future.
Playful: Dog can make us smile under extraordinary circumstances. It begs us to come outside to play. The Dog reminds us to a light-hearted approach to life, where we don’t take ourselves so seriously. Dog is a believer in the value of play. Play engages the power of our imagination.
Grace: Dog doesn’t hold a grudge. It always offers a second chance. Dog sees us in the same Light when it returns. Dog forgets our faults so that the Opportunity for Unconditional Love is always an open door.
Appreciation: Dog holds a deep appreciation for the Love that is shared. It’s whole body wags when it solicits an exchange of Love. Dog values a Love Connection as the accomplishment of its meaning and purpose.
Compassion: Dogs are capable to read our feelings. They know when we are sick or weighed down by Human suffering. Dog’s Compassion is reflected through the eyes of Love that sees the condition of the Heart. Dog waits with us quietly until our Hope returns.
Strength: Dog sees Love as something worth protecting and fighting for. Dog has the endurance to run the distance, and will stand it’s ground for the sake of Love.
Dog/OC defines the Unconditional Love that the Mayan priest (Deer/LAMAT) is responsible to share. Dog/OC is the Agent of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. When we Serve as the priest and shaman, our Highest Intention is to Give Love, Share Hope and Faith in the Future, and to remind others that Love alone is worth living for. Our next Blessing of Love is just around the corner. Dog can help us see the Love that already exists. Love is eternal and can always be drawn into the Here and Now. The Love in our Past is proof we will Love again.
Love is the most important thing the Creator wants us to Know. Love is our Divine Destiny. Our Mission is to Believe in Love.
On 4 Dog/OC our resistance to Love is burned away. Sacred Fires are drawing us back together, rejoined as a pack. Through a restoration of Right Relationship we remember we’re all in this together. Love is worth standing our ground for to create a world of Joy and Happiness.
Dog/OC brings the energy to expand our Heart. Love is the Divine Power we see, when Human goes out on a limb to rescue another. Unconditional Love is a Power beyond our Human limitations, and proof of our own Divine Nature.
To all my relations, may we make a commitment to live the life of a Dog. May we greet each sunrise as a new opportunity to Live and Love. May we be loyal, steadfast, and true to ourselves and one another. May we see the Holiness of our Mission as the Messengers of God’s Love. May we shine a Light on all the Joys of Living. May we comfort the pain so eyes are opened to see the Blessings. May we remind others that Life is never as bad as we can make it out to be, that what seems impossible can look different in the Light of a New Day. May we stabilize our Intention by making it our own Mission to demonstrate that Giving and Receiving Unconditional Love is a Choice to experience the Greatest Joy of Living. May we attend in Spirit the Sacred Fire Ceremonies where Hearts are gathered to fan the flames of Unconditional Love. May we give thanks for the Element of Fire, so important to our survival the All-Consuming Light of the One Consciousness.

SACRED FIRE CEREMONY: For your consideration, I’ve shared the tradition of the Fire Ceremony passed down from the Vision of Joseph Rael. It offers a way to observe the ceremony safely indoors through the use of wooden matches. Inside or out, it produces a strong fire that Honors the Element of Fire for its Power to Transform by transmuting the properties and state of every thing. (A permanent link will be included under the Medicine Path menu, as soon as I figure out how.) Click
A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
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. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 17
I’m grateful that Love is a Choice we can make. I’m grateful that wherever we offer our Unconditional Love, we create something eternal. Even when it is not received, Unconditional Love is something we will always remember.
THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK

4 Dog/OC (Cherokee, WOLF/KANA’TI)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
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.
