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


10 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. On Tone 10, the Intention of Creation we focused on becomes Real to Human. This is a day of Powerful energy that is both a Blessing and a Responsibility. To manifest creation requires us to claim it as the Truth.

Tone 10 is said to present us with a challenge. Through an experience we’ve had before, we see the Truth of Transformation by the new way we See it.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit. IX will show us the way through the “Earth Magic” of Gratitude. IX is the shape-shifter, the shaman, who is Conscious of the Power of our Spirit and our Heart’s Connection to the Whole. IX resides in the North as a symbol of Spiritual Wisdom. Holding the Element of Air, which relates to all our Faculties of Consciousness, we will Know a Change of Mind.

Serpent/CHICCHAN intends for us to Claim our Divine Gifts of Spirit. CHICCHAN offers the eyes to clearly see the Supernatural aspects of all Human Senses. Each one is tied to our Spirit’s Consciousness. Our Consciousness can be drawn to another Time and Place, by a song, the smell of perfume, or the feel of Spring in the air.

CHICCHAN intended to Light the Fuse that ignites our Life Force of Being. Human is awakened to Spirit through these same senses. The Discernment of Love through our Senses is our Spirit’s Dream of Happiness in the Earthly realm of Being.

Jaguar/IX is a nuhaul of Heightened Senses. Footprints are the most common “Jaguar sighting,” due to the Jaguar’s awareness of everything all around.  Living its life independently, close to the ground, the Jaguar sees Mother Earth as the source of endless Blessings. Jaguar is so Grateful, it can hear the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. Jaguar moves in stealth as an Observer of Beauty, the Way of our own Divine Spirit.

Through our Senses we can Know the Love of Mother Earth. IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, holding the Gifts of Divine Discernment and Compassionate Love. A Mother shares the feelings of her children. Jaguar Returns the Love of Mother Earth by Seeing and Acknowledging the Beauty of every thing. Any Mother’s Heart is moved when their Love is Seen and Acknowledged by her children.

Our Dream was to know our own Gifts of Spirit. CHICCHAN intends for us to know they are Real and Given to Serve a Divine Purpose. Without them, Human could never Know Mother Earth. We’d never see the families of living things around us. We never see the vault of heavenly lights or the Signs in the sky. Without ALL our feelings we wouldn’t know one Time and Place from another. We’d never know the Sunrise, or a new beginning. All things Human knows it learns from Mother Earth. All our senses are central to the whole experience of Mind, Body and Spirit.

Our Sixth Sense ignites all our Gifts. All our Senses work together to Discern everything we Know. We will shed our old skin to expand our senses. The Serpent feels its way through the vibrations of Mother Earth. Today our senses will be heightened by the Tenderness of Love. There is nothing more tender than a child who brings an Offering of Love to their Mother.

Children hold the Wisdom and Instincts of Love, newly brought to Earth from the realm of Spirit. Children have the Wisdom to still believe in magic. Innocent Love is always an Expression of Beauty. When my daughter was about 6 years old, she brought me a gift from her adventure outdoors. It was a baggie that held some twigs and leaves. Her greatest find was the Rabbit Ear plant, also called Lamb’s Ear. The silver-green leaves have a velvety softness. She presented the gift with the declaration, “Here Mom. I brought you some Mother Nature.” She took me to another Time and Place where she discovered Beauty she could feel.

Love is a Giving thing. Mother Nature offered the Rabbit Ear to my daughter. She saw the Love and passed it on to me. Our Hearts are connected by the thread of Love. Through the same thread, we are connected to the Love of Mother Earth.

CHICCHAN can open our Heart to feel all the Beauty of Love. The Jaguar always leads a journey to the East, across Time to the Place of Eternal Love. We can see the Truth that we could find Love through our touch of a single leaf of her Beauty. Through Knowledge we learn from Mother Earth, we would know each leaf as a collector of the Creator’s Light and Love. We could see the Beauty in the design that drew us to the physical experience of it, and the discernment of a Loving Touch.

We are alive in a Living World of Love. God seated us in the Center of Love, so that in every moment of Consciousness we would Remember Love through her Beauty. Love is our Highest State of Consciousness. Through the Jaguar’s eyes, we’ll see everything as an Expression of a Divine Love. Our search for long-lost Love can be over when we see through Jaguar’s eyes.

The Power of CHICCHAN is hidden “behind the veil.” There’s a Reason for Everything. Our Supernatural Gifts hold the potential for Always Knowing and Always Believing. We can create anything when we Know everything, and Believe we Know. Knowing and Believing is Absolute Power. The only way to hold such Power in the Integrity of it’s Divine Meaning and Purpose is through the Wisdom of Spirit.

We are growing to Maturity. In the 6th uinal our Dance of Love is taking on the Momentum of a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. Turning to a Divine Relationship is becoming a Habit of Second Nature. In every turn, we grow to a Higher Consciousness of Love. We’ve learned that Happiness is an Ethereal Experience of Life. Our Spirit holds our own Senses of Love and Joy. Success in the world can hold us down like an unseen gravity, unless our Reason is Divine.

The Human mind can’t “Reason Divine.” Giving doesn’t make sense to an Intention of survival. Plus, Human will only Believe what it sees. Our Sight Connected to Spirit can see the Divine Way on our behalf. Through a Divine Choice, our Human eyes can be opened to see beyond the veil to the Heart of a Divine Agency. Our Heart can transform Human Faith to Knowing and Believing.

The worlds rules of success only hold us down from an experience of Eternal Happiness. Without the  Spirit’s Wisdom, our gifts would be corrupted by worldly intentions. Today we are given the Provision of Knowing the Happiness that is eternal. From beyond the veil, we’ll See Clearly how nothing in the world ever lasts. We’ll naturally choose to invest our Gifts in something Eternal, a Destiny of Love that goes on forever.

To all my relations, may we take a journey with the Jaguar to observe the Love all around. May we draw close to Mother Earth. May we count our Blessings, one-by-one, until our Mind and Heart are moved by what our Spirit Sees. We’ll Know our Reason is Love when we see that everything else was created that way.

May we give thanks for small transformations. Incremental steps of Transformation is the Creator’s Provision to maintain the Balance. Our Growing Consciousness is given for the purpose of looking more deeply into everything. In the future, we’ll look back and find that a small step was the Major Life-Changing Milestone of Knowing and Believing. We’ll Know it Forever when it becomes the Wisdom of our own Experience.

CHICCHAN is the “Light” of Inspiration. We are claiming a Higher Perspective for a new Life Experience. Our next trecena, led by Flint/ETZNAB, brings the Sword of Truth, and we will Know that we Know.

in lak’ech, i am another you

We can connect with the Heartbeat of Mother Earth through an Offering. We can bring to her something beautiful that will express the Love we see through her. The Elders say that when we bring an Offering to Mother Earth, it is always received as a Happy and Unexpected Surprise. Mother Earth has a Heart and holds the duty to carry on whether or not her Love is Seen. A Divine Mother knows she can never ask for Love that has to be Given. May we pay her back. May we Know she needs our Human Love in this Time and Place. May we bring her a Gift of Mother Nature and share our deepest Gratitude for the Beauty of all things. May we feel our “lighting in the blood” as the strings tied to the Heart of Mother Earth. May we be grateful that we are made of Earth – dirt, the most Beautiful thing of all. The Elder shaman used to say, “It’s a good thing to taste a little dirt.” Dog/OC suggests we roll around in it.

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. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
