THE TRECENA OF SEED/KAN: THE FACTS OF LIFE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
7 Dog/OC, Destiny Kin 150
November 29, 2022, 11/29/2022
Greetings Beloved Kin,
I remember the first 7 Dog/OC when I was completing the first dedicated round of the Tzolk’in 2016. It was the last of 260 days I’d committed to writing the journal and painting the glyph every day. I expected it to be easy, but it was one of the hardest days of all. I spent hours trying to come up with two paragraphs that made sense. And, it was NOT a happy-go-lucky day. I was seeing very clearly “everything that was” and “everything that was NOT” love. Maybe it depends on how much we were willing to sacrifice to the Highest One on the day of 6 Offering/MULUC.
Living the Dream of the “dog’s life” isn’t as easy as it looks for a Human Being. I only know that when 8 Monkey/CHUEN finally ended the personal obligation of 260 days, I knew I’d paid my dues to each of the Days just the same. Maybe in the year 11 Deer/MANIK, we’ll see the Highest Payoff of a dedicated path to the altar.
7 Dog/OC begins the Divine Initiation for those who count the days at the top of the pyramid. I know my life was changed when I’d completed a promise I made Above and Below. Holding the Element of Air, Dog/OC can change our mind about who we are and all the Divine Dreams that come true when we know we chose to stand on our own two feet, and a Divine Creator was waiting to pull us through.
Every round I’ve manifested a Higher Truth. Most of the Time it’s the same Truth carried to a Higher Consciousness of Being. “My Truth Matters.” No one’s Truth will serve us better than our own. The Truth may stand, or we may fall, but it matters just the same. We CAN create a new reality where we were created to be enough, just as we are, from the beginning. From that first 7 Dog/OC on, the Truth that mattered the most was my own. No one had to agree. When we’re willing to make the sacrifice to Live and Learn, every angle of the Truth we see is a step closer to knowing the Highest Truth Above. It is a beautiful life when we know we can fail and still reach the end.
I’m worn out from the uphill run, so I’ll rely on the post that was written Before. I’m grateful for a Divine Order that leads us to a higher place with every Human Orbit we make, dedicated to the One Above. The Elders say it’s good to look across the Medicine Wheel to see where we were 6 months ago. Look to see the Truth of your own Higher Ground.
The Haab date by Northern Count this time around is 3 Mak. (Mak/Mac – To Enclose, to Cover; Ceremonies led by the elders of the community honored Chaak and Itzamna. Fires were lit atop the temples and the hearts of birds and animals were thrown into the flames. When they were completely burned, a bucket of water was poured on them as if rain from Chaak had extinguished them. Chaak/Chaac is the Maya god of rain, lightning, and storms. He is often represented holding jade axes and snakes that he uses to throw at the clouds to produce rain. His actions assured the growth of maize and other crops in general as well as maintaining the natural cycles of life. Source
May we give thanks for the One that helps us weather the storms and grow from the rains that follow.
love, in lak’ech, Debra

7 Dog/OC, Destiny Kin 150
May 9, 2019, 5/9/2019
On Peak Tone 7 we reach the pinnacle of our climb. At the top of the pyramid we arrive at the Highest Altar. From the place Up Above, we can see the Light all around. Tone 7 intends the Divine Balance between the Above and the Below. By the Great Law of Creation, what we have manifested in one realm of Consciousness will be Balanced Equally in all others.
We stand in the Balance to be measured for an application of Divine Justice, the Creator’s Highest Intention of Harmony and Equity for the Whole. Today we see all that is, and all that is not.
Dog/OC is the Symbol of Unconditional Love. The Creator’s Love was waiting for us at the altar. As we are measured in comparison to such Divine Love, we can clearly see that Human falls short in EVERY Intention of Love. We never follow through exactly as we planned. Just when we thought it would be easy, a worldly attachment drew our thoughts away from Love.
The Dog/Wolf is a pack animal, that offers its gifts of Love to the Whole. It leaves its scent on a trail that others can follow back to the beginning. The Dog’s priority is the next opportunity for Love. No matter what it finds, the Dog leaves the scent of Love to go back and find it.
Dog demonstrates Unconditional Love as Human’s best friend. The Creator’s Love will be with us to the End. Like the Creator, a Dog is Intuitive in Love. A Dog can tell if it needs to sit by your side, or beg you to go out in Mother Nature for a walk. Dog defines its journey as the Adventure of a Lifetime. Dog Loves ALL the Feelings of it.
7 Dog/OC holds the Intention of Reflection. Our Intention was to keep all our threads of Love in tact. A Dog Loves to go back and see all the treasures its buried. We have Divine Times and Places to Remember. Sometimes 7 Dog/OC is a “hard to love” day. Today completes the 5th round of the Jaguar Spirit journal. I remember the first 260 days. Most days seemed very hard, but 7 Dog/OC, the last day, the journal seemed impossible to complete. It took at least 8 hours to get a very few paragraphs. It was one of those days when I ask myself, “Can you even Love This?”
The Dog goes for the happiness at hand right now. If we need to wander off, we can always come back. In the Full Light of Human’s limitations, we can always be Willing. Our Intention was to Allow Everything To Be. There’s treasure buried right where we are.
At the Top of This Pyramid, we Receive our Highest Truth of Love. We were enough by the Intention. From the top of a pyramid, looking around, we can see for our Self how we failed. The Blessing we receive when we look up from the altar, shines from the eyes of the Creator. The eyes that saw us as such a Divine Thing when we came with the Offering, is still there seeing us as the Most Divine Creation. We See what the Creator Sees – Human Intending to Love Back. It never mattered how well we pulled it off. Wishing we had done better demonstrates a Higher Intention.
7 Dog/OC is the first of the welcoming party to greet the Daykeepers who have made the journey around the Tzolk’in, from the date it was first given to the Olmec. They were first to mark the Zenith of the Sun’s Light. They were first to discover that when this light appeared, the Earth was most fertile for the Seed they loved.
The Zenithal Sun began it’s crossing on April 30, 2019 from the southern most region of the Maya lands. By the Intention of Harmony and Equity, so is this Zenith of Illumination marking Times and Place across Mother Earth. We are Standing in the Zenithal Light of Love.
Tomorrow is the Mayan New Year, 8 B’atz (8 Monkey/CHUEN). The Dog and the Monkey stand together in affinity in the Light From Above. As we measure Love, we are witness to the Gifts we were given to Know we are Always Loved. Monkey will share the magic to Create our own Heaven on Earth, claiming every day a Sacred Event.
We were taught to look for Signs and Wonders in the sky. We expect for something to happen when we see them. When we saw a Solar Eclipse leave a path of darkness across the United States, we watched and waited, but saw nothing happen. We took our plastic glasses off on August 21, 2015 and the world looked just the same. What symbol does that same eclipse mean to us now?
Sometimes our Greatest Signs come and go without Seeing and Acknowledging them. There have been many Signs since August 21, 2015. I can count at least 1358 Signs including today. It’s hard to remember a Sign we see every day. Sometimes we need a Light shining right in our face to see it.
The Sun is the Sign that has marked Every Day as a Sacred Event. Every day we were given a Sign that the Brightest Light of All was always there for us. Not a day in between did we rise without seeing it, and looking to see it. On the new year, we will have seen it 1359 times. On 9 Human/EB, the Road of Human’s Divine Destiny, we will have received our Highest Initiation of Spiritual Growth to step in to the world of our Creation, 1400 days after that eclipse.
The Light shining now is a direct illumination from Above. A Symbol and Sign of Love that never fails and is always by our side. The Sun offered a Symbol of Major Life Change. Something would die, so something new would be born. A New Sun was born to shine for us. Darkness would have its day as a Sign that something was passing away. A darkness would come. And, a Darkness would pass away, and Eternally Rise Again.
Every day, the Sun would Rise as our Symbol of the Light, Life, and Happiness to inspire our Creation. We are bound to the cycle of Light by our own circadian rhythms. Each day offers something we didn’t see yesterday. There would always be more Love to see tomorrow.
From the Top of the Pyramid, we’re in the Highest Place to See and Acknowledge the Creator’s Love. There’s never an end, and we’re always enough. We can bear a few Human limitations on behalf of the Whole. The “Christ” knew the Truth and the Way. “Father Forgive them. They don’t know what they do.”
To all my relations, may we survey the landscape all around to Acknowledge the Truth, it IS a Beautiful World. May we Love the Whole of it, the ups and downs, the sunshine and even the mud puddles. May we Love like a Dog that doesn’t know a stranger, and knows there is always More Love around every corner.
May we Know we are Seen in the Light of ALL our Love at the Highest Altar, just as we are. May we consider the prayers we would offer on the eve of a Divine Initiation.
in lak’ech, i am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
GRATITUDE FOR THE DAY:
I’m grateful for every climb that brings us closer to Love.

NEW SEASON – VOLUME 2: Tzolk’in Season 3 (PUBLISHED SEPTEMBER 20, 2020)
7 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/KANA’TI)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
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. Wolves are a connecting link between the worlds; ones who inspire loyalty, diplomacy and sense of humor with unlimited potential.
[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.
