THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL: DREAMS ARE REAL
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 raises us to the Consciousness of Understanding. 12 is the symbol of Humanity as the being of duality in the lower place, under the authority of a higher one. Humanity is represented by the 12 tribes, the 12 disciples, and the 12 constellations. Tone 12 is the last Hour of Light before we Ascend as the 13 into the Reality of a New Dream.
Common Thoughts/Divine Thoughts were given for every Hour of the Day that would lead us to a Higher Ending. All Living Things were given their “ways” of Life and Migration with the Seasons. In the 12th Hour we’ve seen the whole experience of the Day. Our Ascension is the Dream of our Heart’s Desire. We think about what we wanted to do and the limits we reached. We hold the Wisdom of another experience. The Dream for tomorrow is the 2020 Wisdom of Hindsight applied to another chance to start all over or to try something new.
On Tone 12 we take the Truth of the Experience to Heart. Comprehension is a Divine Gift. When Comprehension is aligned with the Consciousness to direct our thoughts toward Love, we hold the Power of Divine Genius. Comprehension is FEELING the Truth, like Common Sense. When Truth becomes our Common Sense, it has found a Home in our Unconscious Thoughts and without thinking, it will be what we Expect to See, and Will See.
Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit that guards the sacred sites and temples in stealth. The Jaguar INTENDS to be invisible, given the heightened senses to know the presence of everything all around. The most common Jaguar sightings are the footprints left behind. When the Jaguar appears we are guided to follow a journey to the East, to a Light of Divine Inspiration we will witness from the shadows.
IX symbolizes the Divine Feminine aspects of Compassionate Love and Divine Discernment. IX is a nahaul of Spirit that holds the power to cross the threshold to the realm of Divine Consciousness. The Jaguar altar in the 2nd inner room guards the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. The Jaguar’s “earth magic” to cross the threshold is Gratitude. To enter the Holy of Holies we Count our Blessings.
The Jaguars/Balams Loved the Beauty of Mother Earth and saw her as the Source of Every Blessings. The Jaguar is said to hear her beating heart. IX resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom and the Element of Air. We are guided to Comprehend the Unseen Power of a Creator’s Love and Genius, and that they were all shared with Living Human Beings.
The cosmology of the Maya tells the story of the 4 Balams as the first Living Spirits created for Earth. They fell in Love with Mother Earth and the Beauty of the Experience. The “former and shaper” were displeased because they did not fulfill their Divine Meaning and Purpose. The Balams were torn apart and recreated to Love the Above and Below, and all directions of Time and Experience. The Living were created to be a Sanctuary of Consciousness for the Wisdom of the Whole. Through a Circle of Life, we could carry the Hearts of the whole to Infinity, each one adding a new Possibility to Manifest a Dream that Feels like Love.
The Element of Air holds the Dreams and Thoughts of the Whole. We are One in every Breath that was created from a Supreme Creator’s first breath. We can heighten our own senses like the Jaguar, through the Sacred Breath. Then we Count our Blessings.
The Jaguar can lead us on a Spiritual Experience of Knowing the Truth of Powers and Ways Unknown. We can meditate on the Jaguar’s footprints that lead through the jungle to a pyramid. We can carry it out in the Underworld of a Dream. 12 Jaguar/IX is a day to set Time apart for a journey of Spirit.
To all my relations, a Light of Truth you always wanted to know is waiting within. AKBAL’s mission was to lead us to our Heart’s Desire, and the Truth that all our Dreams are True. AKBAL can show us what we didn’t see when we were unconsciously awake. We were sure we would know a dream come true when we saw it. What we can’t see will be even more True when we FEEL it.
The Elders say that the Wind is the Voice of God, and to Stop whenever it catches our attention. AKBAL is a Voice that speaks in our Dreams. May we draw close to Mother Earth where we can hear the Wind blow to Listen. In the Sounds of Mother Earth, may we Hear the Heart that Beats the rhythm of our own when we are Dreaming in her arms. May we Dream Awake and follow the Jaguar’s footprints to an altar of our own creation to see the Truth and Love that is waiting to be spoken.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Night/AKBAL trecena.
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.

How is your Spiritual path today?
Are you living an AKBAL Dream? My hours have been turned upside down. If I lay down for a nap at 2pm, I don’t wake up until after 10pm. I never know what time it is on my days off. I pray we can all wake up from the AKBAL Dreams, remembering we are a family.
