MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 6 is a day of Peak Energy. We’ve gained our momentum one small step at a time. On Tone 6 our steps fall into a rhythm and pattern of movement. We begin to see how our suffering is option in the Offering we’ve been inspired to make. When we are Atoned with the Creator, we find the Divine Meaning and Purpose. We see our Human suffering as the means to a Divine End, worthy of the effort.
Jaguar/IX is considered among the most Spiritual of Day Signs. It is the Day Sign of the shaman, who holds the Power of Earth Magic. IX’s “magic” is born of its gratitude for Mother Earth. Living its life independently, close to the ground, IX sees Mother Earth as the source of every Blessing.
Jaguar/IX can show us how when we hold gratitude, we can rise above our suffering. When we turn our attention away from the struggle through gratitude, our focus becomes all our blessings. We always have something to be grateful for. When we can’t see it, all we have to do is look to Mother Earth. She brings the beauty of dawn and sunset, each day – a divine beginning and an end. She lays out a table before us. She presents us with beauty everywhere and is the source of everything we know. Our Peak Energy to reach a new horizon of Spirit is gratitude and appreciation.
Jaguar came in early for me as I was dreading the work I had to do. I sat down and did the first thing, and suddenly it was past quitting time. I needed to be reminded how Spirit steps in when we offer what we are capable to do. At the end of the day, I was embarrassed to have forgotten how good I really have it to be able to work from home. IX brought some new Inner Strength through Gratitude.
6 Jaguar/IX generates a Flow and Rhythm of Movement on Tone 6 of Peak Energy. IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, the Queen of the Jungle. She is protector of Mother Earth and the Guardian of the Divine Forces of Nature. Jaguar is capable to cross into the Dimension of Spirit, and leaves footprints that we can follow.
Tone 6 is the last day of the Spiritual Growth phase. Now is the time to make the biggest push. This is the last stair we have to climb.
To all my relations, may we give everything we have by Remembering. May we live this day as a Prayer. May we call our Spirit Consciousness into every Divine Moment we can. May we be Conscious to See, Hear, Feel, and Acknowledge our Blessings, and most of all, our Blessings of Spirit. May we Acknowledge the moment we Remember as a touch from the Divine Spirit. May we do whatever we have to do willingly and humbly – joyfully. We can be Joyful that we are giving our All to something we Indended to do. We are creating our own Justice. What we do will be Transformed into Divine Justice as Light shares the steps going down.
in lak’ech, i am another you

A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 21/Day 1
I’m grateful for the “momentum of gratitude” that opens a dimension of Spirit. I’m grateful that the Creator doesn’t see our “ungratefulness,” but only our forgetfulness.

6 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength or character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealth, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.
Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians. Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Cherokee Totem Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions; shamanic abilities will open; multi-dimensional magic; healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth. Abuse would be for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance. Ix: The Kab’awil represents the heart of the planet, the female reproductive tract, the face of a jaguar and points east on the world map. Ix: woman, tiger. Conducive to pray for grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters and wives day. For wisdom at 4 Balances, cunning and protection of Mother Nature. To thank the Earth for sustenance. Ix is the native cunning, enterprising, vigorous, bold and realistic.
