MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 11 brings the energy of Resolution. The energy of 11 helps us find our place in the world. Whenever we are transformed by a change within ourselves, we are faced with the questions of how our new understanding would fit in to our daily life experience.
Jaguar/IX is the nahaul that leads us on a path of Spirit. Jaguar’s footsteps are often the only evidence of its presence, because of its keen Senses in all directions. Jaguar is the shape-shifter, the sign of the shaman, who invites us to go along. Jaguar’s magic is born of its Deep Gratitude and Appreciation for every experience of Mother Earth. Through the eyes of the Jaguar we can journey to any place and time to see the Truth of our Blessings.
10-DAY PORTAL: This is day 9 of our 10-day journey through a Portal that thins the veil to other dimensions. Portals magnify our Feelings and Senses, and connect us to our Spiritual Gifts of Telepathy, Intuition, and Knowing. Guided by the Jaguar, we could hear the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. A Portal will magnify a Self Realization and a Higher Realization of the Blessings of a Divine Creator. Jaguar/IX is a day of “High Magic.”
My “Journey of Self-Realization” has been a very painful process. It’s led me through a past, present and future of injustice. There have been some major realizations in the process of how differently we all perceive the experiences of our life. I learned more about what injustice means to me. It boils down to the resentment that someone had it easier, or had an advantage that wasn’t fair. Someone else didn’t bear all the same consequences of their own mistakes.
I realized that unless I bear all the consequences of my own mistakes, I AM what I resent in “the other.” I become the one that had an advantage over another. The only way to Atone myself with the Unconditional Love of the Creator is to accept the consequences of my own darkness. I still believe in the Miracles of God’s Grace, but to Claim it, I must see it for what it is… a Love and a Blessing that I could never earn.
We can be grateful for our own brokenness. In perfection we could never know Unconditional Love. We can release our fear of imperfection, and see it for the Truth that it is. When others find fault in us that isn’t fair, we can remember all the times we found fault in others. We can love them because they share the same pain of being Human. We can see the great crying out of Humanity through our expressions of darkness, and “take up our cross” to lead a charge of Light.
This is what we were designed for, to help bear the pain of being Human as we are dynamically transformed into our equal and opposite extreme, a Being of Pure Light. We get to watch it happen.
Tone 11 can raise us up for a Higher Perspective. This is the day the shaman climb to the Highest Altar. This is the walk of the Jaguar to the most Sacred Holy Place. The magic of the Jaguar is Gratitude. The Jaguar lives an independent life close to the ground and sees Mother Earth as the source of every blessing. It guards the Sacred Sites where Human expresses its Gratitude to the Creator on its knees in the Humility of an Offering. The shamanic path teaches that these places where floral waters are sprinkled and offerings are made, are places that awaken the Divine Field of Consciousness to be Conscious of us. These are the places where Jaguar hears the Beating Heart of the Mother.
IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, the Mother of Compassionate Love who feels the feelings of all her children. Mother Earth bears the burdens of our unhappiness. She fulfills the duty to always put beauty where we can always see it, when we choose to look up from our own burdens. She gives us something of beauty that is always worth living for another sunrise. Her body holds us up through every step.
The Earth holds the power to return every thing to Beauty. Nature will show us that we hold a Dynamic Force of New Life. We are capable to Grow Toward the Light, even when we are buried in darkness.
Jaguar/IX is recognized as the most Spiritual of the Day Signs, walking the path in the Gratitude. In the 8th uinal of “pure spirit” we can be Grateful for our Perfection in Spirit. We can love our Human Nature for the time it must bear to come to a Divine Understanding. Seeing our own darkness, is the evidence of our Light.
I’ve been praying for a miracle to resolve a long-term injustice. I could give many reasons why it’s been an unfair burden. Though now I face all the parts of it that were my fault. The funny thing is, as it stands now, my outcome hints that the burden could be worse than it was before. Though, I have an Inner Strength of knowing that, accepting the blame, means Higher Outcomes regardless of how it plays out. I now believe there are many ways to accomplish the same thing. If I have to bear the worst consequences, it means God knows a better Resolution. I can be grateful that God’s way is Always Higher than my Human Understanding.
No circumstances of life need to call question of a Creator who Loves me Unconditionally… who loves me when I “have things all wrong,” who sees the broken parts of me as the reality of my Human Nature, and who Knows I’ve made the choice to Know Myself and my Creator.
To all my relations, may we accept from our Highest Self the Understanding that we are broken. Through these cracks in our own vessel, may we see the Purity and Magnitude of the Creator’s Love. On the scale of Polarity, we can measure the Highest Degree of Light by the Lowest Degree of our own Darkness. May we be Grateful that through our Consciousness we can be aware that we are moving up the scale. With each darkness we bring to Light, we release something that can be forever left behind. We can believe in the Highest Scale of Forgiveness that forgets the darkness as if it never happened – separated from it as far as East meets the West of our experience. We can be grateful our Darkness is “disappeared” by the Light. May we Know this Love of Spirit so we can Believe the Truth about our Self, and Believe that we Live under the Grace of the Almighty. May we realize our Self as a shape-shifter, never stuck in the identity of today or yesterday, but capable to be transformed to a Being of Light.
We can ALL share the totem of Jaguar Spirit by claiming Jaguar as a Truth of Who We Are and Aspire to Be. Our Divine Spirit is capable to see beyond the dimensions of the physical world to Know the Reality of a Divine Consciousness. Our Earthly Father Sun is the Light that gives us the Will and Purpose to Live. The Earth is our Mother with a Heart that beats in rhythm with our own. Atoned with the Whole of Creation, we are all Jaguars learning a path to the Highest Altars, leaving the footprints of Light behind.
TWILIGHT: Black jaguar is my totem from my first Sun/Moon Dance Ceremony in 2002. Afterward, I connected with Twilight through the “Cat House” in Rosamond, CA via long distance donation. She was a rescue that bore some scars of living. She has since passed, but left children for a new generation.

A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’ve been considering ways to raise my Spiritual Commitment. Having seen the Blessings of Counting my Blessings, I’ve committed to make 21-days of Gratitude a perpetual event. As synchronicity would have it, 21 days from today we will arrive at 12 Jaguar/IX – an Understanding (Tone 12) of the Magic of Gratitude (Jaguar/IX).
We are also approaching the Global Burner Day, 4 Sun/AHAU, on December 15th. 4 Sun/AHAU a very significant date on the Tzolk’in calendar, central to Mayan prophecies of Transformation. (December 21, 2012 prophecies were based on its Mayan date, 4 Sun/AHAU.) Burner Days release a build-up of residual energies to restore the Balance of our Relationships. Personal ceremonies are often observed by the Maya during days leading up to Burner Days. I offer the “21-days of Gratitude” as it was offered to me by the Elders as a personal Sacred Ceremony. The Elders say that the magic is in the Commitment and Intention, and to not be disturbed by days we may forget – that through the Intention our Ceremony carries on with a Life of its Own. We WILL reach an Understanding of it’s Power on 12 Jaguar/IX.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 1
I’m grateful that for every crack in my veneer, there’s a bigger place for Love to Grow. I’m grateful for the Seeds that were brought to harvest since the last Mayan New Year. I’m grateful that I can wait for the Miracle that God has planned, and celebrate that I completed all the steps that were mine to make. I made the phone calls I’d put off, filled out the paperwork, and learned the facts that will help me to make new decisions. I’m grateful that the fear I carried so long no longer has a place in my daily experience. I’m grateful that I’m free to imagine a new Creation and that my future lies in the Hands of the Creator.
