2 Dog / OC – A Gift of Forgiveness: Day 2 of 13


2 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

Over the course of these 13 days, MULUC, the Day Sign of an Offering, will guide us to let go of the world and Give our Life to Spirit. We can relate the guidance of MULUC to the “Christ Spirit” who sacrificed everything for the Whole.

The world presents ways that are equal and opposite of Spirit, like a mirror reflection of things Above. The way the world guides us to serve Humanity is to bend our Truth to get along. The ways of Spirit call us to stand in Truth and “turn the other cheek.” We must be vulnerable in our Truth to gain new Strength in Spirit. Our only Defense will be the Truth. Even when the Truth is unpleasant, it holds the Power to Finally set us Free when we choose to follow what it leads us to do.

The world “the unconscious” war to claim, was already claimed by the Creator as the Inheritance of the Meek, who didn’t engage a fight. In Spirit we claim the prize by being humble in our own Truth.

Tone 2 helps us define our own expression of Divine Inspiration. One Divine Inspiration from the Creator can expand in an unlimited number of Expressions. We are positioned in the perfect place and time for our own Expression. There are needs around us that we are perfectly positioned to serve. We each possess our own special talents and interests. We are meant to serve Humanity in the way that we are most easily inclined to do. It would be something we loved enough to hold the Passion to see it through.

Dog/OC is the Day Sign of Unconditional Love. Residing at the center of the Tzolk’in side-by-side with the Monkey/CHUEN, together they represent the Central characteristics of the Creator that Human would reflect, sacrificing our Lives to Spirit. Our Love would be unconditional to the circumstances. We wouldn’t be led by our Emotions. Living like Monkey, we would receive every experience as Beauty, an opportunity to know something more about the Creation and our own Power to Create.

2-DAY PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions and magnify our Spiritual Gifts. The affinity between Dog/OC and Monkey/CHUEN reflect the characteristics that are pivotal in our Transformation. Our Sense of Connection to the Creator’s Love will be magnified so we can see it more clearly. 2 Dog/OC can inspire an Intention that reflects the Love of the Creator.

8 Dog / OC

Greetings Kin,

The Akbal trecena guides an Awakening of Spirit. Akbal is raising our Consciousness to the Voice of Spirit that speaks to us in our Dreams.

Through the first 6 Tones of the trecena we accomplished a  new phase of Spiritual Growth. Our work was to face our Unknown, holding Faith in the Creator’s Love and Correspondence. Today, we are repaid for our effort. A Dream we Intended and held Faith in is Acknowledge in a Sacred Exchange.

Tone 8 holds the Intention of Justice – the Creator’s Intention they every Human live in Harmony and Equity. No Human was given advantage over another to Know the Truth of Divine Love. We were designed to Know the Truths of our own Spiritual Being. Our Destiny is the journey and the time we bear in the process of that discovery.

Dog/OC lies at the center of the Tzolk’in side-by-side with Monkey/CHUEN. Together they reflect the two central characteristics of the Creator’s personality. The Maya used archetypes to convey a personality that could speak more than words. to explain through illustration an understanding more complete than a written description. Dog was offered by the Maya as an illustration of the Unconditional Love of God.

The Intention of 8 Dog/OC is to return the Divine Justice of Knowing God’s Love. Carried out by Divine Intervention, our Transformation begins through an elevated Consciousness of Knowing we are Loved. A Vision Quest is always a worthy Intention, as a Dream of Higher Consciousness of Spirit. We were created for the purpose of relationship.
