MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 is the day of Understanding what the Storm/CAUAC trecena has guided us to See. We began with a promise of Renewal and Regeneration of Divine Power. Like lightning, this Power is unbridled and can reach our Human heart no matter where we are. The Power of Love we are given is the Source of our Unlimited Possibility.
Today, we receive a Gift of Wisdom from the Experience. All the pieces have come together to show us our place in the Universe, living from the Center of Unconditional Love.
Dog/OC resides at the Center as the Day Sign in the number 10 position of the 20 Day Signs of each uinal. We are only halfway through a cycle that intends an Empowerment of our Spirit. Storm/CAUAC has been a cycle of “Light,” an in-pouring of Divine Inspiration. Over the next 10 days, the process will be completed by our own Application of the Inspiration we’ve received.
Today, the Storm/CAUAC trecena presents us with the most important Truth for us to Understand. We are offered the Gift to Comprehend the magnitude of our own Meaning and Purpose, a purpose that was embedded in our design, and a purpose we were given the Spiritual Tools to carry out by an Almighty Creator.
12 Dog/OC helps us to Understand that the Divinity within our Self is Love. Love is the unbridled power at the Heart of every Human. Dog/OC is the Archetype of our Divine Personality, how we would be if we lived in Consciousness of the Creator’s Unconditional Love.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Wolf, the ones who live as a pack. The Elders say that once the Wolf has come to you as a totem, you will always be included in their family. The Dog is a symbol of Faithfulness that stays by our side, said to be with us beyond life to lead our return journey to the stars. The Dog Star, Sirius, is the brights star in the sky. Just as the planet Venus is the brightest planet, a home in the stars, Sirius is the Brightest Star that shines from heaven for Human eyes to see.
The Maya believed that for every Heart there was a star above that shined from Heaven. The Above is the place where stars are gathered to shine together. The Milky Way was called “the place where the Dog ran.”
Dog’s natural way of Being is an Expression of Unconditional Love. Through the Dog, we can see the Regenerated Heart of Human, Conscious of a Divine Love. Dog exists for the Joy of living. It sees everything as an opportunity to explore through its senses of sight, sound, smell, and feel. We see the Unbridled Love in Dog that loves nothing more than to roll around in the experience. A tail of Love wags the Dog.
Dog moves through live approaching every possible opportunity for Love. Where it is not found, it eagerly moves on to the next possible opportunity. Dog is a totem that makes the best of Every Opportunity, willing to come back and try again without any reservation or resentment.
Dog is the companion that knows our Heart. Dog is a defender that comes to our side when we are suffering. Through the eyes of Dog we see the Humble Love that is Conscious of the Divine Power exchanged between us, whenever our eyes meet.
Empowered by the Love of the Dog, we can experience the Divine Power of our Devotion to Love.
Once Dog creates a relationship of Love, it calls us to experience it through every faculty of our Being. Dog guides us to experience the Joy of Love that exists everywhere in our everyday experience. Dog brings its greatest finds Home for us to see.
We can imagine by looking at the Dog, what Human Life might be if our Greatest Adventure was to discover new Love, and carry it home for a shared experience. We would eagerly discover the differences that make us each so special. We would carry our new friends home to the pack, acknowledging what they have to offer to the Happiness of the Whole. We would honor the contributions of each member as worthy to Always Belong.
Dog/OC offers us the Understanding that we were created to Belong to Each Other. We would never want for anything, drawing upon the talents and gifts that we ALL have to offer one another. Every faculty of our being would be exalted. Through our Imagination and the Mind of Reason, we would create the solutions to every problem. Everyone would have the same vested stake in the Happiness of the Whole. Imagine what life would be if every mind was engaged in the Intention of our common well-being. Imagine how our technology could be used, if the purpose was always Divine. The solutions would be simple and make the very best use of every resource, instead of solutions only designed as a means of self interest. Imagine what our healthcare system might look like, if the structures that support them first sought to provide the best care at the lowest cost. Scientists have already discovered sources of Free Energy. How would our lives be changed if the energy to power the world were free? How would we be blessed if clean water could be easy shared to every community? How abundant would be the harvest, if our highest priority was to create the fertile soil upon which we could grow everything we need to survive. Anyone who has ever grown tomatoes, likely knows their abundance can be so great we can’t eat them all by ourselves. They only spoil if we don’t give them away.
This is all that Human needs to be happy, a Home where we will always belong in a family that generates abundance, intent on sharing what is more than we need for our self. There would always be someone we could turn to who has the talent, the intelligence, the physical stamina, and the creativity to create abundance in its most beautiful expression. Imagine what life would be if every Spiritual Gift we were given was used for the Common Good.
Dog/OC is raising our Consciousness to the Power of Divine Love. Through Forgiveness and Unconditional Love, we would naturally draw upon the Whole Power of Humanity. We could tap into a Power that is illustrated as a Lightning Force between the Above and the Below.
Dog/OC remembers who we were at the first Awakening of our Consciousness. Before we were born, our Consciousness existed as the only experience of who we are. The first experience offered by the Creator was to Know the most important feature of who we are, our own Consciousness of Being.
To all my relations, may our Wisdom of Love move from the Head to our Heart. May we see the Blessing that could be multiplied to abundance by a Whole World Population of Divinity. Through our Divine Consciousness may we remember that whatever we are able to imagine, we can create. May we remember that it won’t even depend on our own Power, but the Power of an Almighty Creator that placed the plan at the heart of the Seed of Human. May Love become the most important thing we experience, and the Divine Movement we engage. How would our lives be changed, if we were constantly on the look-out for Love. Mother Earth, alone, holds Love Multiplied to Abundance. When we can’t see Love in the relationships around us, we can always find it through Her. There is no way to be close to Nature without sharing the sense of Peace and Love. May we engage every Love we’re given the opportunity to experience, as the Divine Source from which we can draw the Power of Lightning. Love stands in its own Truth. Love always knows the way to Higher Ground. Love is the Power most easily Multiplied to Abundance. May we give thanks for a Free Source of Power provided in an unlimited supply, so Abundant it overflows with more Love than Human hearts could ever hold. Love is the the Blessing provided so abundantly that when we are Conscious of it, the only thing that would make sense to a Mind of Reason, would be to give it away. May our Hearts be nourished and blessed by Understanding all the opportunities there are given to Live in Harmony and Equity, when we draw upon the resource of the Creator’s Divine Love.
in lak’ech, i am another you, Loving You for everything that you are, and the Expression of Love that you are uniquely designed to share with the world

REPORT ON THE HOUSE FINCH: I though perhaps the Finch decided to move their nesting place, though this morning the female has taken up residence in earnest. She didn’t move when I went out to lay seed and water the plants. It would seem to suggest she is sitting on new eggs under the corner beam of my balcony. I found that the House Finch gestation is between 12-14 days. By the end of the next trecena I might see the Miracle of New Life. Her mate sits below, singing and protecting the territory of their family and home.
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 Unconditional Love was the Gift that was given in Unlimited Supply.

12 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/KANA’TI)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
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 is symbolized by Sirius (Dog star) and Antares, one or the other always visible but never at the same time. Wolf is our brother, shares our very roots. All dogs are domesticated wolves, companionship and guidance. Wolves are a connecting link between the worlds; ones who inspire loyalty, diplomacy and sense of humor with unlimited potential. Wolf is the Day Sign of teachers, healers, pathfinders and transformers; sharp as obsidian, gentle as a lamb.
