THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN, AN ALTAR OF LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“To Be, or Not To Be?”
Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality. Who Am I? What’s My way into a New and Unknown Future. On Tone 2 we see “what is” from Human’s perspective, BEFORE we consider how we can Divinely carry it out. Duality is the “hard road” of Time. It takes more than a first impression to know the WHOLE Truth. The Tzolk’in helps us track the thoughts that will, collectively, draw us toward a Higher Consciousness of Knowing. We can know the Truth. Only through our own experience, do we WHOLLY Believe it.
Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, the sign of the shaman, and the shape-shifter than can cross the dimensions of Time and Place. The Destiny of Jaguar/IX is to walk in the Balance between the Above and Below. Above, the Jaguar holds the Breath of Light and Truth that Spirit is the realm that’s True. Below, IX is the symbol of the Divine Feminine that hears the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. IX balances the Truth of Spirit, with the Beauty of Compassionate Love for the Human hearts beating Below.
The Jaguar faces its “enemies” in stealth, for the Intention of guarding an Inner Altar of Light. The Jaguar always leads us on a journey to the East, for the Light of Illumination. Residing in the North, Jaguar holds the Wisdom of Earth Magic, born of Gratitude for ALL the Beauty of Love on Earth. On days guided by IX, we are Called to Mother Nature. She is always waiting for us, with Forces that can Ground our “positive energy.”
Jaguar/IX will lead us to the Time and Place where our altar will shine the Light for Whole. Our Direction will be East, always turning to the Sunrise and the Love given as every New Beginning. To Know the Truth and our Way, we’ll only have to look down at our feet, and See the Sunrise straight ahead that will Answer every Question that leads to our Highest End.
There are no mistakes on the Jaguar’s path. Every step taken through Time holds a Divine Meaning and Purpose, Above AND Below. Jaguar/IX is a “symbol of 7” as the guardian of the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. Jaguar is the nahaul that sees the Truth by a Reflection. What “appears to be true” in the world below, can reflect the Real Truth, when we see it from an equal and opposite perspective.
Master Number 777:
Don Alejandro related the Jaguar to the Number 7, by position at the altar at the top of the pyramid. IX lies in position 14 (7 x 2). July adds another 7. 7 is the Truth of Balance and that we Create our own Reality. Jaguar holds the Earth Magic to create Love through Gratitude. Gratitude is a Human Power equal to Believing. Through a Choice to be Grateful, we can Believe in the Unseen Powers of Divine Agency.
The Elders say there is always more than one way. There are MANY ways to accomplish the very same thing. We could look at our hopes and dreams from two different perspectives to see the Whole Truth – at least more of the Truth. We want what we want in a world of physicality. Our possibilities of creation are limited by Human’s imagination. Our Spirit knows we hold EVERY possibility, when we are creating something we Love as a “creation of Love” on behalf of the whole.
As the nahaul that can see things from both Above and Below, The Jaguar’s perspective can help us see that our Human dreams could only fall short of what’s Truly Possible, when we engage the Power of Divine Love. The Real Truth holds the possibility of Miracles, and ways of accomplishing the Same Ends of FEELING, through many different experiences of our Life. On Tone 2 we compare the way we think things should be, to our Faith that a Power Above has a better way. Will it be Our Human Way? Or, can we surrender to ANY WAY that Has-To-Be for the Highest Plan of Divine Will?
2 Jaguar/IX guides the Faith to stand on “What is, is meant to be” for EVERYTHING we CHOOSE “to be or not to be.”
Jaguar/IX holds the Element of Air and reminds us of the Sacred Breath to Draw our thoughts to a Higher State of Consciousness. To draw the Wisdom of Divine Discernment, 3 Sacred Breathes can elevate our thoughts to a Higher Answer.
As the Power of the Shaman, the Earth Magic of Gratitude, is the pure vibration of Love that can be sent long-distance from one heart to another through the realm of Spirit. The Jaguar can see the Truth of the Invisible Light that moves through the Sacred Breath that connects the Whole.
The Element of Air holds the Power to change our thoughts. IX will influence the empathy of compassionate love, and a desire to know the Highest Truth. IX holds the Wisdom of patience, believing that the path will lead to the Divine Time and Place we are meant to see the Whole Truth with the 360-degree view all around.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for the Truth that is REAL in the realm of Spirit. May we reflect the spot where we stand as the X of point A, that divinely leads to the point B. May we call on a Divine Agency to See the Truth as it is REAL from the Perspective of our Spirit. We MOVE by Intention in the realm of Spirit. We shape-shift our Consciousness from one Perspective of Truth to a Higher Understanding of what Truth will lead us to do.
Our Way is paved with Tracks of Light. In a cycle of Light, we’ll be led by one step taken that lights another step forward. When we forget we’re in the perfect Time and Place, we can look down to remember. To Create our own Reality, we will Claim our own Divine Truth of Spirit. How wild and wonderful our Dream might be, is a Choice left to our own imagination.
May we call on the Wisdom of the Ascended Ones, to guide us. When we don’t know what to do, may we do the next wise thing we KNOW to do. May we remember that Time is ordered in Divine Chronology on behalf of the Whole. We don’t want to know where and when. Humans Love a Surprise and a Mystery. May we Draw the Sacred Breath to Believe there is a Time and Place for our Dream “to be” that’s better than anything we could dream right now.
May we give thanks that we are Alive in a Living World, all One in a Divine Consciousness of Love. May we turn to Mother Nature to see the Beauty and the Expression of Love as a Way Divinely guiding every Living thing.

2 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
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 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. Abuse would be for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance. Ix: The Kab’awil represents the heart of the planet, the female reproductive tract, the face of a jaguar and points east on the world map. Ix: woman, tiger. 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.
