10 Jaguar / IX – A Baptism of Spirit: Day 10 of 13


10 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

We can CLAIM our new Power to Forgive and Believe, standing on the Truth that the Mother Earth resides under the Authority of an Almighty Creator of Love.

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. An Intention of Knowing our own Power becomes Visible by Human eyes. It was once only a dream we held in Spirit.

There is a great Responsibility as well as the Blessing. To manifest the Intention of Power we have to Claim it’s True. 10 manifests a change through challenge or conflict.

When we manifest Spiritual Power, things naturally go contrary to past experience. We might see ourselves as we really are, and become aware of new behaviors or ways of expressing our Self. When we manifest Power, we shift our perspective and roles in our relationships. We might like it, while others don’t know what to expect. We choose to go along the old comfortable way, or we claim the Divinity that doesn’t need to defend itself. The Truth was given to us through Divine Intervention.

Jaguar/IX is the most Spiritual of the Day Signs, as the shape-shifter that sees beyond Human reality, to the realm of Spirit. The Jaguar sees in all realms of existence. The Jaguar has heightened senses and knows everything that goes on around it – the reason Jaguar’s footprints are most often the only sign of its presence. The Jaguar even hears the Heartbeat of Mother Earth.

The 6th uinal establishes a Flow, Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. It raises us to our Spiritual Maturity. This is the uinal of a Great Athlete, well practiced in the steps. We become One in the Flow of Spirit, dancing to the Rhythm of Creation… claiming their is a Sacred Intention for every moment. As we learned to always turn Home at the altar, we fell into synchronicity with a Divine Movement. Peace and Harmony is the music we are dancing to. The vibration of Love created by the Creator’s breath is the song.

We are learning the Music of the Universe – the One Song (Uni-Verse). On Tone 10 we realize we Know the Melody. We know the Divine Chord that comes next.

Human’s response to Music is a Miraculous thing. Music touches our Spirit and carries us to other places. Composers of Music, Great Composers, know how to order the notes to create the anticipation of where we want the music to go. Richard Strauss’s “Sprach Zarathustra, OP 30” (theme used for “2001 a Space Odyssey”) was written as a “tone poem” expresses the Awakening of Human Consciousness.

Our Spirit can hear the vibration and music of a Divine Movement back and forth from the Above to the Below. We can anticipation of the next Divine Note. Just as our Spirit feels broken, the music will raise us in the final chorus.

Tone 10 offers a Great Blessing and a Great Responsibility. To manifest a creation we must claim it exists. Our Spiritual Gifts were given at birth. We won’t use them until we Believe we have them.

The CHICCHAN trecena that intended to ignite our Power of Knowing, places Jaguar/IX in charge of a Manifestation of Spirit. Like Jaguar/IX hears the sounds of the Earth’s heartbeat, so can we hear the music of the Universe.

With such perceptive senses, Jaguar, the shaman feels the burdens of Humanity. We don’t have to doubt ourselves if we feel we’ve lost belief. Under IX, the Divine Feminine holding Compassionate Love, we are feeling for both ourselves and others.  The Elders said, “What you Heal in Yourself, you are Healing for the Whole. What you are given is what you have the Power to Heal.”

Jaguar/IX resides in the North, holding the Element of Air, the Sacred Breath. Let Wind blow free any negative attachments to Spirit. Direct your in-breath to the place that feels the pain in the body to fill it with Holy Light. The Jaguar is drawn to Water, the Gift of Blessing and Purification.

IX opens our eyes to see that Love is Knowable by all our senses. Our 5 senses are just as supernatural as the 6th. The only difference is we knew the first 5 gifts from birth. We had to grow up to hold the Divinity of the 6th. Our 6th Sense is not so hard to believe when we see how special the others are in gathering the Light of Spirit.

This morning the song I hear from Mother Earth is a growing light, rising to cross my balcony from the East, birds raising their voices in the morning chorus of “Here I Am.” I know this song. The Sun will rise to the zenith and from the Sacred Event of this Day, it will leave Footprints of Light behind and sing its farewell chorus as it reaches the Western Horizon. I know the song will play over and over again.

We will manifest what we claim. If we look at the whole of our experience, and see it as only temporary – just passing inspiration that is here today, that is what we will manifest. If we claim it as the beginning of our experience of Knowing, we will Hear the Song that continues to build toward the climax of its final Divine Chord.

May we claim that our experience of Chicchan isn’t a single note or chorus. May we claim it as a song that has always been playing in the background. May we claim that now that we can hear it, we’ll know the notes that come next, and we’ll know the song has been going on forever and will play for eternity.

To all my relations, may we listen to our own Song of Spirit. May we feel the Hallelujah that our heart has learned to anticipate. May we disappear from this world, and reappear in the world of Peace and Harmony, building the Home we imagine. May we claim this as only a beginning of Knowing the Truth of our Power, and celebrate the Gifts we were born Knowing, that reflect the Divinity we can expect from our Highest Gifts. The 5 senses are as miraculous as the 6th. May we claim the birth of our own Jaguar Spirit and work our magic of Gratitude. May we walk in stealth under the cloak of indivisibility, so the only thing seen by Human eyes is evidence of the Miracle.

“Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, performed by Pentatonix

One of my favorite contemporary compositions is “Hallelujah,” by Leonard Cohen. What I finally understood about the lyrics is that the “real” Hallelujah is not the Awakening, but the moment we are broken by the world, and we Know the Creator loved us just the same. If you have a moment to listen, you might notice the anticipation of the Spirit to hear the note that comes next.  (Written in the key of C major, the chord progression matches lyrics from the song: “goes like this, the fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, and the major lift”: C, F, G, A minor, F.[6] ~ Wikipedia)

in lak’ech, i am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle / MEN


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, and 1

I’m grateful for ALL the senses we were given that draw our Consciousness to our Divine Communion with the Creator. 


Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and insight on the Uinal and Portal Days of the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena.


10 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

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.

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.  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.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you.

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!

I mentioned a few weeks back a potential opportunity to travel to the Mayan pyramids. The vision is clearing as an opportunity for accommodations has been manifested. I’ve started a gofundme page to raise money for the ticket and expenses related to book publishing scheduled for Spring 2019. Please only share if its Easy. You are already the blessing of just being here. (But you could help me spread the word.) much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit

  1. I have wanted to comment…crazy eclipse season to go along with an amazing profound trecena! each day building upon the other (que es normal, si?). you do a beautiful job of tying it all in, moving the energies along their path for us to comprehend so much – gracias! my life is totally a reflection, but then surely everyone that is paying attention can see their life in the daily tzolkin. truly though, Hallelujah has been a major song in my head the past couple of weeks, as has been Garth Brooks’ ‘The Dance’. my heart sings and the emotions are a river. I hope you are getting close to your much anticipated dream unfolding! all is as it should be, no matter the challenges present along the way. con mucho amor, en lak’ech aloha espavo ~e

    • Thank you so much Elena – Everyday this trecena I’ve wondered what would I possibly have for tomorrow. It is SO MUCH the calendar. Without the numbers I wouldn’t know what comes next, learning with you as I go. So glad you’re over there anchoring Love and Mana in the Ring of Fire. love, in lak’ech, Debra


  2. Hi Debra, a great reading of 10 Jaguar – thank you!
    Hallelujah is one of my favorite songs too – I especially like the Jeff Buckley version.

    I just discovered this page – quite an interesting blend of Tzolkin, I-Ching + Numerology and some other components – could perhaps be quite useful instrument to see how the systems correlate with each other – thought I’d drop you the link in case you haven’t discovered it yet:

    • I’ll check out Jeff Buckley’s rendition, and also check out the site. I’ve exchanged a few emails with Craig, when he was still launching it, so will be interesting to see.
      Thanks on the 10 IX 🙂 love, in lak’ech, Debra
