MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. We are empowered by a Gift of Retrospection to connect dissociated parts into a new and meaningful Whole. Through comprehension we acquire a new perspective for application. Tone 12 is the day when new Wisdom is taken to Heart.
Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit, the shaman and shape-shifter with the power to cross dimensions to exist in any Time and Place. Residing in the North, the place of Wisdom and the Element of Air, the Jaguar relates to a state-of-mind and the capabilities of Consciousness.
The Jaguar walks an invisible path, leaving only the footprints behind. The Jaguar always makes its journey toward the East. These are the very footprints we have learned to follow. We’ve made an invisible journeys of thought, always heading in the direction of Life, Light, and Happiness. The Jaguar knows in advance what it will find at the end, following a Light that shines from an altar.
The Jaguar moves in stealth using its power of invisibility to face any danger. So can we invisibly remove our self from harm by claiming our own invisibility. Jaguar/IX is the Divine Feminine, one of Power and Strength in a form of Beauty born of Gratitude. Jaguar is the Companion to Mother Earth, a guardian and protector. Jaguar holds the Earth Magic of Gratitude.
Gratitude is our own “Magic” on earth, that always guarantees the journey will end up in the Light. Invisibility is the guarantee that our Ego doesn’t make a public appearance. All our Magic is behind the scenes when make the journey of our Jaguar Spirit. The Jaguar’s path is the unseen journey to our Hopes and Dreams.
When the Ego appears the path of Jaguar’s footprints disappears. We’re sure we must be in the wrong place, at the wrong time. It’s only the Ego attempting a discernment based solely on Human visibility. The Ego hopes to be recognized, and can only imagine happiness as an advantage of human accomplishment.
At the conclusion of a Sacred Ceremony, a Vision Quest, the Elders always instructed us to “hold our power.” There last teaching was not to run and share every experience and every Divine Communion we engaged with the Creator. The Vision Quest, like the Jaguar’s journey, is a personal experience of Spirit. Something is given for us to have and to hold as our own. What we were given to share deserves its own time for Divine Discernment. Our Empowering Spiritual Experiences are custom designed to our own Time and Place. We can never wholly share the Vision and Experience, but only the Truth that we take the time to discern by our Self. The Elders knew the effort invested in such a ceremony. They knew that when we share what we have yet to fully comprehend, we can loose all the wind out of our sails.
Have you ever been excited about a new inspiration or revelation of Truth then shared it with someone who didn’t “get it” at all? It seemed SO SOLID when we shared it, then suddenly, it loses something of it’s Magic when we find our self trying to explain it. It was Magic because a Divine Creator shared it with us. Consider keeping something beautiful for only yourself. Consider that you have been given a Sign and Symbol of the Future that only you will see unfold because only you had all the pieces and parts that were ready to be drawn together.
From the North we can draw on the Wisdom of the Ancients and Ascended Masters. Look how they shared. They covered everything up as a means to preserve the Sacred Wisdom. The only way for anyone to know all the secrets is through a Divine Journey. It insures the Balance of Power and Wisdom are known together. Whenever there is an issue of Power, there is the possibility of its corruption by the Ego.
Spiritual Wisdom is a matter of very Divine Timing when it includes the power to Create Reality. Consider those with very strong believe in their own power. Without Wisdom, they hold the power to guide many journeys of thought, without the Integrity of Divine Will as the destination. Part of coming into our own Divine Power is knowing how to hold it, and what to share, and what each one is meant to Know when they discover it themselves. Otherwise, we are the one who opens all the Christmas presents early for everyone. Everyone deserves their Time of Personal Revelation, to unfold in their own way. It’s meant to be different than ours, and like our Divine Inspiration, received as if we are the very One that was meant to know it.
To all my relations, may we look back through the Divine Gift of Retrospection. May we choose a Divine Thought, a personal Vision, that we would hold as our own. May we claim it as the Divine Secret that was shared because we asked, and we committed the personal time to be Present to Know it. May we claim a new Light we found in our own personal journey to the East as all our own. May we believe that what is shared with us is for everyone, equally, who makes the Choice to know. May we save it to be known when others have made their Choice, so they will know their own truth of Answered Prayer.
May we remember the Divinity of our Human self, that apart from its limitation, is fulfilling the purpose of survival. May we Love both sides of our self. It was our Human side that bent its will by choice so both sides could know the Miracle.
in lak’ech, I am another you

12 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
Galactic Tone 12: Twelve is a gift of great capacity of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
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 stealthful, 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 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.
