13 Jaguar / IX – Ascension of Ek’ Balam: Day 13



13 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 holds the Divine Intention of Higher Consciousness. Ascension is a  Divine Gift of Hindsight. It’s a Divine Gift of a Time Traveler to look back and see the Truth in 20/20, how it’s taken to heart to become Wisdom of an experience. The experiences we Feel become the lasting memories, when we recall the Truth of our Life.

The Tone of Ascension shares the feeling of wanting to try again, or to start something new. It’s Human’s COMMON thought when we know something now that we didn’t know before. Divine Wisdom is the Consciousness of Knowing that there must be more Truth we haven’t seen yet. On the Tone 13, we realize Divine Possibilities we can’t forget. A Divine Dream for the “12” of Humanity is shared as the Answer to our Prayers on 1/2/2021. The Eyes of Spirit are opened to the Truth of Higher Possibilities.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit. IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine holding the gifts for Discernment and Compassionate Love. 13 Jaguar/IX is the Highest Challenge of Human’s Ascension to the Scion, one destined to grasp the  Truth by crossing the threshold, beyond the gravity of Duality. The Jaguar Spirit represents the Highest Hope we could reach for, to claim the Truth that Humans are all created in Harmony and Equity – no better, no worse, BECAUSE we are ALL One Divine Consciousness of Spirit.

We are the 2 that creates the Balance of the 7 – the Promise of all things Balanced Above and Below. IX resides in Position 14. The Jaguar is the one who sees the Blessings all around given from Mother Earth. Every Destiny Kin marks IX by 4 directions in the lower place. IX holds the “earth magic” of Gratitude, guarding the temples and sacred sites in stealth from the shadows. To cross the threshold we must Ascend to the Truth we can Believe when we Count our Blessings. When we give thanks for ALL things, both the darkness and the light, we can cross to see the Truth. Instead of measuring our self and others as better or worse, we’ll Love the Whole Story of how Love of ALL our different ways comes to be. Without conditions, we leave ALL ways open to the Light.

IX holds the Divine Power to be INVISIBLE. IX reflects the Truth of all things UNSEEN. IX is the Vibration of Thoughts that are felt by Intention, regardless of whether they are revealed. IX is the Queen of the Jungle and Guardian of the Planet that can FEEL the Life in all things. IX is said to hear the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. IX raises our Spiritual Sensitivity to the Truth Spoken in the Wind. Through the Element of Air, IX holds a Divine Power to Change our State of Mind. Like the Wind, Divine Thoughts of Gratitude can sweep away the ash of the worldly illusion now burned away.

When the Jaguar appears, we’re guided on a journey toward the Light in the East – the place of Divine Inspiration for every New Beginning. In a New Light of Faith and Hope, we can apply the Truth we CHOOSE to see. We can shine our Spark like an Unseen Gift of a Miracle. When the ego is burned away, our Divine Mind can discern the Truth that sharing Love without calling attention to our self, shines the Brightest Light from Above. When the Wind Blows, the Elders say to stop and pay attention. There’s Truth in the Wind. Counting Divine Truth as our Highest Blessing, learning Truth about our Self won’t feel like a sacrifice of the Heart. Instead, we’ll see the Light of our Highest Offering.

According to the cosmology of the Maya, the 4 Balams (Jaguars) represented the first Spirits of Creation, Consciousness of the Experience. They fell in Love with Mother Earth and the Vibration of a Song of Love all around. The “former and shaper” were displeased. That wasn’t the Whole Intention. The first 4 Balams manifested a finite experience. The Divine Dream for Creation was a Circle of Life that could go on forever, experiencing the Life Above and the Life Below. The first 4 Balams were torn apart and recreated for the Balance of Love, Above and Below.

Don Alejandro, the High priest of the Maya, taught that the Jaguar is a symbol of the 7. The 7 holds a Divine Meaning for Time, to realize the Power to create our own Reality from the Balance of Truth Above and Below. In Time, a Truth of Love always creates a Beautiful Life, when the more we look for the Unseen Beauty, the more we see.

The Jaguar holds the Wisdom of the North. We are given the Divine Vision to see Truth Above. Above is the One that sees the Whole Creation, the Dark and Light of One. As the 12 we are the 2 Below. When we look to the Truth of the 1 to know the Truth of a Dream of 2 Below, being second best will feel Divine when it was our own Choice to shine from the shadows – aiming our Light in all 4 directions, along with the Up Above, Down Below, and All Around.

The Jaguar was given the Power to leave its footprints of Light without ever being Seen. As the Guardian of Mother Earth, the Jaguar bears the full mantel of Spirit. A Jaguar Spirit remembers how the 2 felt when it was torn apart. Jaguar holds the Light and the Gift for Compassionate Love to shine all its Light, all around, without drawing any light  to itself. The Jaguar holds the Wisdom of Divine Truth to know the Blessing of being second, under the Guidance of the Higher One.

13 Jaguar/IX represents the Ascension of the Human Spirit Conscious of Humanity. The Jaguar creates a path of Beauty, as Light is the Direction it chooses to see. We are all Jaguar Spirits, given the right of free passage in every realm of Being. We are all shape-shifters capable to choose a Sacred Place from which to witness all things Seen and Unseen to the human eye.

The Jaguar Spirit within is empowered by the “earth magic” of Gratitude. Mother Earth is the object of the Jaguar’s affection. Living a life of solitude, the Jaguar sees all the Beauty of the Mother who is the source of every earthly blessing. Jaguar hold the Divine Essence of Love that only takes a Spark to See as the Truth. ALL Spirit holds the Power to speak volumes through the Wind. The Truth of a Jaguar Spirit is standing on Faith in “no better” or “no  worse” to manifest a Divine Truth of Loving it all. The Jaguar holds the Senses to Feel a Divine Vibration, the first Breath that Promised everything was meant to be.

Tone 13 represents our Ascension to a Higher State of Consciousness. At every Ascension we hold the crystal clear vision of our past, and our own Wisdom of Truth from the experience. On Tone 13 we rise to a Higher Consciousness of the Truth and the footprints we can follow to the Future of our Dream. We create the Magic through our gratitude for the Experience. Giving thanks for all things, we declare the Truth we CHOOSE to Believe, and claim the Guiding Light that never leaves us halfway there in the dark. IX can take the Truth to Heart how BEATUIFUL an Invisible Jaguar Spirit can be, when the Being of Duality is hidden from sight.

To all my relations, may we claim the Truth of 13, that prayers for Love are Answered. May we claim the Power and Wisdom we hold to pray for each other. May we claim the Truth there’s no greater gift of love we can share that to make it our Mission to Prove the LIGHT in someone else. Our Love will overflow when we do. May we make the ultimate sacrifice of our Ego, to share the Light of Divine Truth without ever being seen. May the path be seen where the  Miracle of Light is shining at an altar, so others won’t turn to the Second, but to the Divine One that was meant to be the First Place to see the Light of Love, and a New Beginning every Day.

We are drawn to the Highest Altar for the Ascension of the Jaguar Spirit. To enter in to the Divine Truth we can Count all the Blessings of having one another to have and to hold. May we bring our Highest Offering of Love and Forgiveness to the One who manifested our Creation as a Divine Dream of Love.

Now comes the work of setting these things we shall call the Original Instructions in place
and tending them with attention and highest consciousness.”

Andrea Bocelli, Céline Dion – The Prayer

“The Prayer”  (lyrics)  by David Foster

I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer when we lose our way

Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe

La luce che tu dai
I pray we’ll find your light
Nel cuore resterà
And hold it in our hearts
A ricordarci che
When stars go out each night
L’eterna stella sei

Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede c’è
When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

Sognamo un mondo senza più violenza
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace e di fraternità

La forza che ci dia
We ask that life be kind
È il desiderio che
And watch us from above

Ognuno trovi amor
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro a sè
Another soul to love

Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Just like every child

Need to find a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

E la fede che
Hai acceso in noi
Sento che ci salverai

13 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Galactic Tone 13: Ascension. Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.

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 stealth, 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.

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.

  1. Hi Debra,

    Since I regularly read your email, I wanted to check in with you, it seems one didn’t go out today. I hope all is well. Thank you always for your connection. Talín


    • Hi Talin – Thanks for thinking of me. The journals posted as scheduled. I’m not sure what happened to the email notification. I’ve seen that happen before, but WordPress only said to look in the spam folder. If it continues, you might try unsubscribing, and subscribing again. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Glad for your company. 🙂 love, in lak’ech, Debra
