THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX – WALKING IN BALANCE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
In the first trecena of the Tzolk’in our Primordial Mother, IMIX, germinated the Human Seed. We were brought to life and Given the Divine Inspiration to Live through a promise of Unlimited Possibility. IMIX shared wild ideas out of the blue so we would recognize a Divine Communion as thoughts that will lead to the Wisdom for Life, Light, and Happiness. IMIX warned us to take our Time, to use our Common Sense, and to Choose Wisely.
She offered a way to see beyond Human’s limitation of forgetting by the milestones of Truth we could remember at an altar. The Crocodile is fiercely protective of her young. IMIX shared the Truth of Compassionate Love to lead our Heart and Mind back to Love. Love is the Divine Provision that she declared would be True from the Beginning to the End. The Truth ignited our passion to Live and Be, remembering that we were born to become a Divine Human Being. Our hearts were Sacred to her from the start and she would share every Feeling that a Human Being must bear so we would never walk alone.
IMIX brought us to Life through a cycle of Light and Divine Inspiration. Jaguar/IX led our first cycle of Darkness. Human Beings claim the Truth through experiences of “light” and “dark.” “Light” is the Dream of Divine Inspiration, an Unseen Truth of Possibility. “Dark” is the application by Human, attempting to walk in the Truth Unseen, yet Felt within. Things look and feel different in the realm of Spirit Above, and in the reflection Below. It all seemed easy to believe, listening to the encouragement of a Divine Mother. Now we see how Time changes the picture.
A Dream was manifested Instantly in the realm of Spirit. The Elders say it always takes more time to move matter than it does to transform the Ether of Spirit. She taught us Patience to see beyond the limits of Time by remembering and eternal Truth of the Supreme Creator’s Unconditional Love. We were declared Sacred from the Beginning as 2 that must “bear the time” to witness the Miracle as One.
Tone 10 is the Day of Manifestation, the Day that the 2 will agree as 1 to claim the Truth of Creation. Manifestation is our greatest Human hurdle. We have to claim the Truth to manifest the Creation. We have to claim it before our Human eyes have seen it Below. Our only way is to Discern the Love that’s True in our heart. We have to risk the Leap of Faith with our Heart on the Line. Jaguar/IX showed us the way of Gratitude as the “earth magic” to See the Light.
We were given 2 Divine Truths that could stand if we tracked our own thoughts. We are not alone and there is a Divine Provision for every limitation. Night/AKBAL is the Dreamer who believes in the Dream. Residing in the West, AKBAL relates to Human’s Unknown Future. Holding the Element of Water, AKBAL relates to the way we Feel about the journey. AKBAL reaches deep to reveal the Dream of our Heart’s Desire. IMIX taught us that when we choose the Dream we Love, nothing will stand in our way.
Night/AKBAL symbolizes a Light that will always shine in the darkness. AKBAL guides us to willingly enter the darkness of the Unknown. AKBAL can turn the darkness into the Creative Void of ALL Possibility. A Divine Light will dispel the illusion that our Dream can never be.
We are seldom conscious of our Blessings until they’re gone. Only be feeling the darkness will we Remember the Light. Manifestation holds a great blessing and a great responsibility. We have to claim the Truth to believe. We have to invest our Heart to Feel the Truth.
AKBAL connects all the Divine Faculties of our Consciousness, the left and right, the conscious and the unconscious, the thoughts of reason and imagination. AKBAL holds the potential for mystical experiences, as we become a third-party witness to the inner workings of our own mind.
AKBAL is a day of Dreaming that may feel like we never woke up. If you pay attention to your own thoughts, you can identify a “body of thoughts” that are with you, like the memory of a Dream on your pillow. You can feel it, but you can’t quite see what was so clearly possible in the dream. Human thoughts of reason keep interrupting the Truth of the Dream with the reason why it’s impossible by our own limitations.
We see a Dream we always wanted to follow, and for one reason and another, we gave up to claim less than we really wanted because it was Here and Now. It’s hard to risk our most cherished dream, when it could lead to a REAL Truth of Impossibility. We’d have to give up on the Dream for our Life. The Light that will ALWAYS shine for Human Beings is that Last Hope, the Only Hope, that leads us back to an Altar where the Light of Love will always be.
AKBAL pours out a Blessing of Spirit, a Truth our Heart will Feel and a Feeling that will carry us through the darkness to a Light that guides the way. The Elders say that a Breakdown is the Time and Place of a Divine Breakthrough. AKBAL can present us with a “dark night” of the soul. Yet, with a choice for Patience and Vigilant Consciousness to track our own thoughts, a Light will Break for us when we share our deepest Feelings of Limitation. Today, while we feel Love for such a Divine End, we will also feel the limits of our Human Power to carry on the “hard road.” We are so tired of holding on for a light that Feels SO FAR away. How will we ever reach the end?
We see Feel our limitations, remembering how many times we gave up. We could see how many times we settled for less because it was already here and now. AKBAL is the Voice that can speak through our Dreams with the Truth our Heart needs to hear. A Light will break through the Darkness to Believe.
The Cherokee Day Sign is The Hearth, a Sacred Fire that burns for us Above where Legions of Light are gathered to stir the embers of a Dream shared by the Whole. Our Guardian Angels and Spiritual Guides know exactly what we need to Feel to Believe. They will pour out the Blessings of Living Water, Eternal Love as the Power to make our Dream come true.
To all my relations, may we bear a journey through the darkness of all our lost hope. It doesn’t mean we have lost our Faith, only that we forgot the Truth. May we claim a Light that always shines for us, and always Claims us as Sacred for the journey we must make through the darkness of the Unknown. When our heart breaks over the dream that “can never come true” because “we aren’t enough,” may we dare to FEEL what we TRULY LOVE.
May we give thanks for the Unseen Ways that a Divine Creator helps Human to SEE the Dreams we Love. In a realm below we KNOW that “Faith without works is dead.” So will the Divine Cause of Faith always be Seen and Acknowledged for the Balance of Divine Justice. May we claim the Divine Provision for a Miracle to overcome every Human limitation.
AKBAL is the Voice that speaks to us in our Dreams. In the darkness of Lost Hope, may we listen for the Truth of Divine Love that will be Spoken in our thoughts. On AKBAL we can HEAR an audible voice. More than just a Feeling, AKBAL will share the words that speak the Truth. May we dare to claim the Dream we Love the Most to hear the Truth that beyond all odds and all the obstacles and illusions below, there is STILL a way and there’s STILL Time to realize our Highest Dream. May we claim the Love that breaks our heart, IS the Truth of Love and the exponential Power to Know it is meant to come true.
May we invest every faculty of thought to claim the Promise of a Divine Creator is the Power of Love that will always intervene with Miracles beyond all human reason and understanding. May we claim that the Power of Love is real and we were Given a Spark so when all Faith is gone, there would still be One Last Hope in One Above that we could never forget. May we imagine the Light that shines when our Heart reaches for the Life, Light, and Happiness of the Whole.
in lak’ech, i am another you

BEGINNING THE ECLIPSE SEASON:
2020 is a year with 2 additional eclipses that emphasis a cycle that will magnify Human’s evolution of Consciousness. Eclipses mark the completion of Wisdom and Understanding that raise us to Higher Possibilities of Faith and Believing. The Light will be switched on and off to See the Before and After clearly. The Truth Seen will shine a compelling Light for us to follow to claim the Truth of our New Life. Mercury is positioned to reflect the Truth of a Divine Messenger before a Lunar Eclipse declares the Truth has been revealed. Today, Mercury is Sextile to Uranus, inspiring a the way of non-conformity. We’ll be freed from a Human need to just go along with the way things are. Mercury will square Chiron, the “wounded healer within.” We’ll be torn between the Truth Above and Below. We can be turned around when we Claim the Truth that Human is Divine, just as we are. Through the pain of our own limitations, we hold the Gift of Compassion that can FEEL the Dreams of the Whole.
May we consider our own Voice of AKBAL as a Light that was intended to speak the Truth of Love for every Human Dream. May we given thanks for a Divine Sign that completes the Love of Understanding and the Faith to Believe for the Whole. May we claim the possibility of taking steps toward our dream we never imagined before. May we declare that “broken” is the way to claim our Future is guaranteed by Power Above. May we be non-conformists of TRUTH. The glass is never half-full OR half-empty. It’s ALWAYS FULL… half-way with Water, and the rest of the way is filled with Air. That IS the REAL Truth.
THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX

10 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)
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.
Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void. a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.
Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night.

My gift for a New Tzolk’in Round…
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Crocodile/IMIX trecena.
My gift for this Tzolk’in round is linked there, a Tzolk’in Field Guide that has as much about the basic aspects of each day as I could think to put into it. The directions and the elements are aspects of Universal Laws that can be known in MANY ways, through many kinds of practice. My aim with the dates for each trecena, included for the next few years, was an intention that we could have everything for a day in one place at hand, if we didn’t have a computer.
