9 Crocodile / IMIX – Building an Altar: Day 9 of 13


9 Crocodile / IMIX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience. Tone 9 transforms our perspective through consciousness of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Tone 9 comes with a warning that there could be suffering without this important insight.

The Reed/BEN trecena is drawing us into a Divine Channel of Communion with the Creator. With Tone 9 we see the reason why this was part of the Divine Plan.

Crocodile/IMIX is the womb of Creation. IMIX calls us back to our first Consciousness of Being. Spirit was once the only thing we knew.

The Cherokee Day Sign is the Turtle. A Cherokee myth tells the story of the Heron Spirit Bird as a beautiful maiden who fell from the Sky Vault with no place to land on the primordial sea. Turtle came to the surface of the water. Here she nested and laid her Cosmic egg, from which all things are born.

IMIX is the Creative Void, the womb where all consciousness is born. At the Altar of Consciousness within, we are returned to the place where all life began.  IMIX inspires an infinity of Consciousness. Known as the Mother of Invention, IMIX awakens our Consciousness with wild ideas that inspire innovation. This is a day to be conscious of our Inner Thoughts and discern their source. We can recognize them as a Voice of Spirit by the way they interrupt our Human thoughts.

Today we enter the 4th Uinal of Stability. We are offered the Inspiration of IMIX to see the possibilities for Happiness that are offered from every direction… Divine Inspiration (East), Relationship (South), Unknown Experiences (West), and the Collective Wisdom of Experience (North). We can remember that each of these influences is the foundation for our Happiness when they are equally acknowledged as a Sacred Blessing.

IMIX is the Divine Mother that offers Compassionate Love, tending to our nourishment and care, and fulfilling her duty to raise us up to know the Happiness we are empowered to create. The most important offering she makes to our Transformation is the Consciousness that we exist in relationship with the Creator. She teaches us that happiness can be found by pursuing the creation of Beauty. She would insure we knew that Human was also a Divine Creation of Beauty.

IMIX can remind us of the Identity we first assumed on Earth. As children we believed in miracles and things unseen. We imagined becoming anything, without questioning whether it was possible. We didn’t live for a dream in the Future, we played in the Dreams as if they were happening now.

Those who follow the dreams of IMIX, the dreams of things they love, are said to reveal their true genius. We were born genius as children. Then we learned to be Human. IMIX guides us to remember who we once were, children who knew the magic of everything.

IMIX reminds us of the Choice to create what makes us happy. She reminds us that we can create whatever we can imagine. We can Choose what we believe and create it. We can choose a world where the Creator is always with us, where miracles are possible. What we hold in faith can be transformed into what we believe. The more we believe in all the possibilities, the more Happiness we are able to imagine.

To all my relations, may we follow the example of our children. May we recognize their Innocence in Believing in all the possibilities, as the Truth we once knew and are capable to remember.  May we know that the Joy we would experience from a Dream isn’t confined to the future. The joy can exist at any time in our imagination. May we imagine what life would be like, if we chose to experience our Dreams in the Present.

in lak’ech, i am another you

9 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI  I’SB)

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.

Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI  I’SB: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan is the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth. The beginning of each new era, this star in Orion appears with the rising Sun, heralding the creation of a new World cycle.

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your inspiration, or your personal energy report.

HELLO FROM KANSAS! I’m grateful to be spending some time with my parents on the farm. Replies may be delayed until after I return on Saturday. In the meantime, I will be taking in all the beauty of Mother Nature, far from the city where stars are the only lights in the night sky, where the deer bed down under the cedars, and where there is an unobstructed view of Sun from one horizon to the other… the Kansas plains of my Ancestors. I’ll be sending my love around on the Sun. Much love, Debra
