THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT: GATHERING THE LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 7 we complete the last climb of Human’s Intention. In the 20th cycle of Light we are Ascending to a Higher Truth ordered by the All-in-One. 13 Sun/AHAU stands as the Guardian of the Tzolk’in round, and the Power of Authority over our final destination from the Beginning.
On Peak Tone 7 we arrive at the top of the pyramid. Tone 7 holds the Intention of Reflection with the Power of a Promise that we could see by the Truth Above AND Below. The Great Law of Creation is marked by 7 at the center of the 13. To know the Whole Truth, we have to see Life Above as it is Reflected Below. The Truth of everything lies in the 3rd Question of Divine Possibilities. Human Faith is just as powerful as Believing. Prayers of Faith always return an Answer from Above.
On Tone 7 we hold the pinnacle view of “all that is” and “all that is not.” All that we See is the Light of Hope we trained our eyes to see, the “X” that marked the spot of Seeing the Truth Above as the Truth Below. We are measured in the balance of our Faith, how far we reached beyond what we could see with Human eyes to the end of a Promise.
Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit. The Jaguar is invisible, yet visible. The Jaguar is hardly ever seen in the wild due to the heightened senses of Life all around. The Jaguar is said to hear the heartbeat of the Mother. The Jaguar walks in stealth holding the Intention of Invisibility to guard the sacred sites and temples where Human creates the Light of an Offering. We will only see the Light at an altar when we follow the Jaguar’s footprints. It’s said that when the Jaguar appears, we’re guided to the Light in the East… the place of Divine Inspiration for New Beginnings.
7 Jaguar/IX leads us to the place where the Divine Journey begins. The Holy of Holies lies at the top of the pyramid. The Jaguar guards the threshold. Below, the altar to the Jaguar offers a way to cross with the “earth magic” of Gratitude. The Maya saw the Unseen threshold as the altar build as far as Human could climb above the canopy. At the end of the stairs that Human climbed, in the Reflection like Water, the Maya saw stairs that continued on Above. The top of the pyramid is the place for our final Leap of Faith into the Higher Truth Above.
The Truth was written in the Whole of The Creation from the micro to the macro. Love was intended as the First Order, the Intention of 1st priority. Life in the animal kingdom reflects how every talent is vigilantly employed for the good of the whole. In a world that runs on primal instinct, the first instinct is to find the treasure for home. I saw the truth from my sliding glass door when the Chickadee paid the first visit in the morning. The first visitor always came alone, like a scout. He/she would hop from one dish of seeds to another. It never took a seed for itself. It came to inspect the buffet. Then it went back to return with the family. No choice was made to do “the right thing.” The bird’s offering was a Truth of Common Sense for a life of Harmony and Equity… an obvious thing that is seen as the next thing to do.
When we let go of ALL our Human Gifts in service to the One and the Whole, we invest Now what we would have only been saving for the future without a plan. We were born to be invested in one another. We are the One and the Whole. Everything we have to share was given as an Offering from Above. It was given on behalf of the Whole. Dreams are the Unseen Truth in every human heart, when we Dream the Dream that was Intended for Sharing, it will be Common Sense to Love. When we See the Truth, there is more than enough for everyone. With everything we need for Life, Love, and Happiness, there’s no end to the Genius we would create together when all our gifts are united for the Divine Purpose.
IX is the symbol of the Divine Feminine, holding the Gift of Divine Discernment and Compassionate Love. A Supreme Creator gave Suffering a Divine Purpose, so we would never bear the pain of any Time without receiving the Sacred Exchange. The Gift for Suffering is the Offering of Compassionate Love. Someone would know how we feel. In the Experience we would claim the Wisdom of Divine Love that Understands. We will honor Truth that’s different in another Time and Place, when we Know how it feels.
Holding the Element of Air, the Jaguar relates to the inner workings of the mind. From the North, the Jaguar holds the Truth of Divine Wisdom – Unseen by Human eyes, yet Known as the Truth by our Spirit. Air holds all the electrical signals of our thoughts, connecting the Whole through every Sacred Breath. A Light of Truth can pass through it for Human to See. We were designed to Live in the realm of Light and Ascend in the Darkness to the Experience of another Life of Unlimited Possibility. We can carry our Human Dreams across the threshold through the Faith to Believe. Faith means we’ll be looking for the Truth.
The Element of Air holds the Power of the god Huracan to change the whole landscape of our life, if that’s what it takes for us to see the Truth of who and what we are becoming. On 7 Jaguar/IX we’ve reached the threshold of the Truth our Lifetime holds. Everything “that is” Love is everything we Know. Everything that “is not” is everything we don’t know. At the Peak Experience of our Climb we have a view of our Whole Life on Earth, and all the Life around from Up Above. Standing in the Truth of our Integrity, Counting the Blessing of Life, we Face the Truth – we haven’t seen anything yet. We barely scratched the surface of all the Beauty that Life could offer. It was all right there in front of us, and we couldn’t “see the forest for the trees.” We see new horizons and Higher Hopes and Dreams… places we haven’t been, and all the beauty waiting to be seen, to expand the Truth of everything. From the top of the pyramid, so did the Maya grasp a view of Infinity by the Light of all the Stars, a Miracle never seen from below.
The Element of Air can change our mind. Through the Consciousness of One Sacred Breath to take all the Beauty in, we’re given a View of Life we won’t forget for all the Divine Possibilities and the Beauty waiting to be seen. We’ll realize it was what life was always about, working to create that experience of belonging and Love that we know around a table, where everyone brings something, and everyone has a place. A Divine Dream leads to the Celebration of the Harvest, gathered by the Whole.
To all my relations, may we Count our Blessings for Mother Earth and her Truth of Love, powerful enough for every eye to behold the Beauty.
The Elders offered the Divine way to gather the harvest in the teaching on “picking.” We were guided to harvest the Yarrow and told to look for a strong family growing together for the sacrifice. One that grew all alone would be given the time to know a family. We were taught to bring an offering for the sacred exchange, and to ask permission. When one stem didn’t easily give way, we honored the choice and turned to another. For the one that gave way, we honored the whole for the sacrifice with a gift of our Love, Seeing and Acknowledging the Blessing.
We are intended to claim the gifts that are offered to us for Our Time. For every Life a Divine Time is Given to Know the Truth of the Here and Now, that proves that “Good Things WILL Come to those who still wait.” We don’t have to move anyone to the Truth in another Time and Place. If we Honor the place where they are with the Blessing of our Love, they will grow in the fertile soil like grass. A Divine Nature will draw them on the Unseen Journey from the Deep into the Light of the Promise. May we Give Thanks for the Gift of Time, and extend the Time for everyone to Know the Truth that will ALWAYS BE.
May we kneel in the Light of the One to count our blessings and see all the Beauty of Life that is waiting for the One who chooses an Unseen Promise as the Light to see the Beauty of everything. We have a Whole New World to See and Acknowledge as the Truth. In the next Sacred Breath we can claim it.
In lak’ech, I am another You

AN OFFERING TO MOTHER EARTH: Prayers Spoken on 7 Jaguar/IX before, to be an Offering for the Wesak Moon that pours out the Highest Blessing of the Light to the Whole. May we make the Sound of Love through all our Spoken Prayers, in the Breath we Give Back. May we hold a Prayer for the Future and the Light that will shine again as the Full Moon in Capricorn, the Sign of a Savior. May we make the Offering in Faith for the Answer to a Prayer we will Know by the Light of 13 Sun/AHAU, January 28, 2021.
Mother Earth, We Love you.
Please accept these flowers intended to express the beauty of you.
Bless the garden where they grew in exchange for the Holy sacrifice.
Please forgive all our broken ways. We See and Acknowledge the Love you’ve given.
We release to you all our Human Dreams, Given Back in exchange for the Divine Dreams you shared from the Beginning.
Bless the Whole in Harmony and Equity.
You gave us everything we needed. We long to hear your songs again to believe “everything is possible.”
Help us to Live and Love Again, and Remember. AHO!
I assumed that climbing a pyramid was something “easy to do” for the Maya who lived in that Time and Place. It was a pilgrimage then, as it is today… a long way to go one step at a time. They must have shared the stories of the world as was seen from Above, Beauty as far as the eye could see.

7 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
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.
