MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The first 6 Tones represent the stage of Spiritual Growth at the beginning of every trecena. Led by the Blue Day Sign of Deer/MANIK, this is a trecena of “Light” where the effort of growth is accomplished by being present and conscious of Incoming Inspiration. Deer/MANIK, also known as Hand, inspires us to Know we were created to be the Hand of God and a Divine Participant in the process of Creation. As the Day Sign of Spiritual Tools, MANIK guides us to see the Divine Way we are equipped to fulfill our Divine Destiny.
Dog/OC resides with Monkey/CHUEN at the center of the Tzolk’in. Together, they reflect the Divine Aspects central to the Creator that were shared with Humanity. Dog/OC is the Day Sign of Unconditional Love, and Monkey/CHUEN is the Day Sign of a Creator. Our Divine Life Purpose and Soul Mission is to be Creators of Love.
Tone 4 brings an Intention of Stability. Tone 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms that establishes volume by defining height, length, depth and breadth. Tone 4 offers a sense of orientation through the 4 directions and defines the parameters, the freedoms, and the barriers within which we can manifest our Intention. 4 Dog/OC guides us to build a foundation on Love.
GLOBAL BURNER DAY: 4 Dog/OC can burn away the conditions placed on our Love. The Maya observe Global Burner Days with Sacred Fire Ceremony. Burner days mark a release of built-up residual energy that can generate stress that impacts our relationships. Sharing Sacred Ceremony is a way of restoring Harmony and Balance in the Community. We can create our own observance. We might write down our “prayer to be loving” as our Offering to the Fire, where we could see it consumed and its smoke carried by the Element of Air to the Creator.
