THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC: A JOURNEY TO LOVE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
HOLY DAY OF AWARENESS:
Earth/CABAN represents Mother Earth as the Source of all Human Knowledge. Through her, we know the Truth of physicality. Her Movement creates the Time for Experience that perpetuates expanding Knowledge as the Resource for Discernment. We can’t begin to imagine how much we already know. On the Holy Day of Awareness Earth/CABAN resides in the zenith position on Tone 8.
Tone 8 is the Number of “pure spirit.” Mother Earth has a hand in changing us with every turn. CABAN resides in the East, where we’re always carried Home to the Light. On 8 CABAN we are connected with the Heart of Mother Earth and the Element of Fire that can burn all worldly matters away.
On the Holy Day of Awareness, we realize our Mother Earth has a Heart and just as our Heart beats with Feelings, so are we One in a Divine Communion that’s Powered by Love. She is a dynamic illustration of Love that’s found its place in the Universe, allowing Unseen Powers to carry her as she Eternal focuses on a Light in the Center as the “object of her affection.” Earth Knows its own identity as a Creation for Love.
Peak Tone 8 begins the Transformation Phase of the trecena. The experience is out of our Hands as a Divine Agency Intervenes with the Sacred Exchange. For all the Human effort of Intention we applied to reach Love as High as we could imagine, the Exponential Force of Divine Trinity will now apply an equal effort to the end of Divine Justice.
Tone 8 holds the Intention of Divine Justice as the zenith of the Creator’s Love. We would be Loved in Harmony and Equity, and given a Spark of the Truth to Remember. We were created for the Experience of the Creator’s Love that was born from the darkness. If we could Remember the ending from the beginning, we could never witness how the Dream will manifest over Time.
We can’t ever stop asking questions about Life and all the Beauty there is to know without losing our Sense of a Divine Meaning and Purpose To Be. Our Divine Mother held the duty to raise us up to know we could be genius at anything we Love. We can create the Life we would Love through the Great Law of Creation.
The Aztec Day Sign is the Ollin, which simply means Movement. The Ollin resides at the center of the stone calendar, marking 20 Divine Times and Places, Perspectives of Knowing. In the center the fierce face of K’inich Ahau reflects the Brightest Light of the Sun, like a flash that commands “This Will Be.” On either side are the claws of a Divine Mother, like a badger, that will tear away the flesh of anything that threatens the lives of her children. The Whole Truth can only be Known to Human at the ends of Time, and every Moment we are Conscious of the Experience, we can create our own path of beauty through the Garden of Heaven on Earth.
The Elders say that Mother Earth was the first and enduring gift to Humanity from the Creator. We are Alive in a Living World of perpetual motion. No matter where we stand, a perception of Beauty is the proof that Love had a hand in the Creation. Through Mother Earth, we can see Beauty in the micro to the macro. There are no exceptions. We aren’t an exception. All the Beauty we see, a Divine Creator sees in the Scion. If God paid such attention to every detail, then we can conceive the Truth that the Dream for the Scion was the most beautiful of all.
[My altar has changed in a new apartment where fines are imposed for any smoke damage. I burned incense all day in my old place, and I felt lost when even sage didn’t feel like an option. Something simple and new came together that finally feels like Home. I recently learned about the Power of the Ankh, as a form (the form of human), that interacts with a universal flow of magnetic energy. The Ankh symbolizes the perpetual energy of magnetism, and an application for the creation of electricity. I’m calling upon the Ankh to set Divine Thoughts into Motion. Things ARE changing and Time will only tell what it will mean. This is where prayers are held for you, me, and the whole.]
On Earth/CABAN (Ollin) we can See where we came from and who we are becoming. Through an Element of Fire, we can Feel the Power and Passion for our own Life and our own chance to turn things around. CABAN is the “imprint” of Knowing we were created with a Power of Divinity, and the Primal Call to apply the Power of Divinity to our own Life.
The glyph illustrates the way to Discern the Divine Truth. The straight line represents Human’s linear thoughts of Reason. Our first thought about anything is an assessment from our objective consciousness. If we compare seeing with the Divine Eye of Spirit to our Human eyes, our first assessment of anything is only a shape and form by outline. The wavy line represents Human’s imagination. Our second thought tries to impose “what it is” by remembering what we’ve seen before. Though we may not notice it, Human LOVES this part of figuring things out. We’re compelled to put a whole picture together. (This human way has been identified by psychology and applied to marketing as a means to engage our thoughts. We love a mystery. Have you ever clicked on a picture, when you were told there was something you aren’t seeing?)
This is where Human consciousness ends, trying to figure out the future by what we’ve known in the past. We reach our limitation, when the past is our ONLY reference for the future. Nothing can change as long as we only see how things unfolded before. The third and Divine Thought is represented by the rising circles. Only a thought of Consciousness can direct us to look to the Unknown out of thin air for a Truth we’ve never seen. When we hold the Wisdom to consider a Divine Possibility for Love, the Justice will always be a Gift to Imagine a way and the means to Love.
The K’iche Day Sign is N’oj, a Sacred Word of Knowing… a word that can call to Life the Wisdom of ALL Time. We are consecrated as the Living Sanctuary, where we share an Offering “To Love.”
Dreams of Love will always change us to a Higher State of Consciousness by our own Passion to complete an Understanding of Love. A Spark within Knows the Truth of the Whole Picture, and a Human mind has been trying to add 2 +2 to bring the Truth into focus. Only, there’s an exponential facture beyond human calculation. We were Designed to Know by FEELING the Experience.
On 8 Earth/CABAN all we have is the Feeling of “pure spirit,” yet it will be a clarion call to Move to a New Field of Abundance. All we needed was a Divine Feeling to take the Leap of Faith that believes in ALL Possibility. The Aztec call Ollin an “unlucky day” to just go along. This is not a day to take things at face value, but to apply the 9 of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. This is the “most lucky day” to Move, and to Move with ALL our Heart.
What if we could Move the Love in the Past to the Future? What if we took a stroll down memory lane? What if our Heart could be opened by Forgiveness to Remember a Time when we believed in Love that IS the Truth in every heart? From what we’ve learned about Human’s way of Reason… to always go back to the same discernment of injustice, what if we put our differences aside for One Moment? What if we allowed our self to remember a Divine Truth of Yesterday, when we DID know the Love in the Moment was True?
So much changes with maturity. Human is inclined to see absolutes. We remember how it hurt when we couldn’t let Love go, and all we COULD do was remember Love that was lost. Human is not inclined to follow those thoughts anymore, though this is a New Season, and a New Time in our Life. Time has a different meaning now.
My natal family has been through the great divide. If anyone remembers better times, it’s hard to tell. From Human Reason, there’s no reason to believe there’s a way back to the Love we knew before. At one Time, holidays were spent playing games around the dining room table. At one Time, we always used the Time to create some craft together. At one Time, we sang holiday songs around the piano. Now emails are deleted and cards thrown in the trash. It wouldn’t hurt anything to Remember. The Power of Love will change us, regardless whether it changes anyone else. Holding the Consciousness of a Divine Power of Love, we might be led to Believe that it CAN make a difference, through the threads of Love that always connect us as One. I can’t think of any other way, and it IS a Higher Way.
To all my relations, may we Live with ALL our Heart for an Unseen Promise of Love, the Divine Justice of a Sacred Exchange. May we keep turning to the Brightest Light to FEEL the Truth of Love’s Divine Power. May we turn away from all Human reasons that say “impossible.”
May we Live as the Scion that shines a Light all around. May we Remember Love will find a way through the ties that bind so another Heart could Remember too. May we apply the Truth that a Divine Mother is always moving us toward the Light, and by Divine Justice, a Time for Love WILL come around again. May we CHOOSE to be Conscious of a Divine Trinity that holds Powers of Love beyond Human’s imagination for ALL Time.
A Way Opens before You. All Obstacles are Removed.
Only that which is Worthy and Desirable moves Forward with You.
in lak’ech, i am another you

CEREMONY OF CONSCIOUSNESS
The Elders said, “You can change your whole life through 4 days of sacred ceremony.” In 4 days, you can discern the Truth from 4 different perspectives. We ask in prayer, and fly away when we don’t see the answer NOW. Maybe we hold out a couple of days. 🙂 Like the Wisdom “to sleep on it,” when we apply the Patience (9) to sleep on it 3 times, WE change the Truth we See. WE know we completed an all around WORK that went BEYOND our first impression. We know we Deserve to hold a Truth of our Own, when we’ve had Time for an Experience to FEEL it.
The most beautiful Sacred Ceremonies are the Ones you created by your own Divine Design. They are the TRUTH of your Love and a Choice to Express it. Mother Earth is always as near as our feet to manifest a Power of Divine Trinity, moving with her to see things all around as a continuum, rather than defining it by One Time and Place. The Divine Justice for Human’s willingness to Love WILL be One Divine Moment when we Manifest the Truth of the Creation… created Above “all in our mind” and Balanced Below by “The Work” our “heart will Know is True.”

8 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 8: 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”.
Earth/CABAN: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.
Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way.
