THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: CREATING A LIFE FROM SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 raises the Intention of Duality. Human is the 2nd Consciousness, given the Gift to Know many things by comparing 1 thing to another. We find our way in life, comparing one end to another. To SEE the way to our destination, we have to see beyond the moment into the future.
We began in Unity for a Divine Inspiration. On Tone 2 see our own ways and means to consider the possibility. In a Divine Communion of Spirit, it’s Human’s turn to share what we see as our own Power to complete the end.
Tone 2 presents the question, “To be, or not to be?” Are we willing to Love every thing? How will we turn away from our own doubts and fears to witness Only the “Light?” From a Human perspective, we’re staring into the darkness of an Unknown Future.
When we commit our Self to a Vision Quest, we intend to hold the Highest Faith that One Above CAN get through. Sacred Ceremony is the Leap of Faith that for all the Love and Time we invest, the Sacred Exchange will be the mystery beyond Human imagination. This Time we must invest Faith in the Promise that a Divine Cause WILL manifest a Divine Effect. We have to be willing to put an “object of our heart’s desire” on the line, to prove to our Self that there’s an abiding Light for the Whole Way.
Eagle/MEN is the Day Sign with the Gift of long-distance vision. MEN is “God the intermediary” who can help us see beyond our Human limitations. MEN can raise us up to our Highest Hopes and Highest Aspirations from a Higher Perspective where we can see the direct flight to our Dream. The Eagle only has to see the speck of a distinctive color within it’s range of vision (1.9 miles) to know the prize is waiting within its grasp.
We have to look beyond the moment to see the future. Our Dream is a Life of Love shared in Harmony with the Whole. Human Beings were given the genius to create anything we see. An Eagle is a good example. Human’s saw the birds and dreamed we could fly. It took a while, but we knew that if One could fly, by the same ways and means, so could Human take to the air.
The Eagle has to SEE the prize to grasp the Truth of the possibility. That’s where human limitations can stand in the way, when we don’t know exactly what we’re looking for, a Dream beyond Human imagination. We’re trying to imagine Heaven, where Human Beings all love each other, Living in Love with Life all around. It’s hard to imagine Love as such a spectacle that it’s the Only Dream held by the Whole. Eagle/MEN guides the way for a Dream beyond knowing. We’ll mark an “X” at the end of our Quest for the Vision, holding the Speck of Love we CAN see. We KNOW there is Love to See. Sometimes the milestones seem so far away, we forget how it looked. Though, the Beauty was always marked from Above.
The Eagle flies by Intuition. It never calculates the way. It fixes its eye on the Dream and never looks away. When it sees what it wants, it anchors a path to a Time and Place, then takes off. The Eagle Leaps and Falls to the current of Air that catches its wings, then Leans in. We pass by many opportunities to witness the Truth of Spirit. We are given a Divine Thought and revel at the Miracle of it. That can be as far as we take the Divine Discernment, when there is something more to see. There is ALWAYS something more to see, or to See Again from a Higher Perspective. The Eagle’s Eye is the Divine Provision for Human Being. A speck is all that we can see from such a Light. A Divine Dream will be all-consuming when the Light draws us in.
Tone 2 is Time intended for inner reflection. We need to know what we can expect from a Sacred Ceremony of Spirit when it’s carried out by a Human Being. All the Human Being is going to see up close is the “blood, sweat, and tears.” I had such High Hopes and the Highest Aspirations for the Sacred Ceremony at Ek’ Balam. I walked the path to the experience many times before my pilgrimage carried me to the place. I dreamed of that experience at the top of the pyramid, realizing the climb. The Truth in the Time and Place was that I could barely stand on my own two feet. I rolled backwards off a log, the first place I could find to sit down. It was so hot and humid, everything echoed.
It was the same experience at my first Sun/Moon Dance. We came with such high hopes and dreams for dancing back and forth to the middle pole. In the practice, it was only the challenge to keep going until the sound of the drums came to their end. We never knew whether we would be dancing for 15 minutes or 2 hours. One didn’t feel much different than the other. It felt like a lost cause reaching for some unknown something I hoped “to get,” and reaching for some Speck to Know it WILL BE. Our Vision Quest is the Offering of Human Will for the Leap of Faith. Through a Sacred Ceremony we can carry out the Divine Cause. It takes Time to see the Divine Effect. For all we may not see at the beginning, there will be more than enough to see, more than we can imagine while we’re carrying it out.
The Eagle resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Future. Holding the Element of Water, the Eagle can Balance the equilibrium of Spirit to see beyond doubts and fears. The Eagle aims at the Love it imagines like an “X” and leans into the Promise of a Divine Provision. The best way to reach the Highest Ends of the Creator’s Dreams is to claim from the start, we can’t See it All. We stand in our own way, when we define a Divine End by Human thoughts. We’re better off aiming at an “unknown” end, than a Human end. Holding the Element of Water, a Divine One will know our “heart’s desire.” We only THINK we know what will make our heart sing. A Divine Creator SEES our Dreams, and intends to lead us to the Higher Dream beyond knowing. Do we REALLY care if our Divine Justice is something else? Divine Justice means the fulfillment of our Heart’s Desire.
To all my relations, may we look to the future and the Dream ahead. May we admit from the beginning, we don’t know exactly what we’re looking for, but we will hold Faith in the One Above for the journey. May we have patience with our Self, and patience for the Time it will take to see the whole picture. May we remember that every prayer is seen from above. An Act of Faith will always return a Truth of Believing in the end. May we believe that a little bit of Faith is just as good as believing to the Divine Witness Above.
The only reason an Eagle doesn’t grasp the prize is when it chooses to fly away. An Eagle will turn away if it sees another Eagle flying to the same prize, expecting competition after the long flight. We have to lean into the Truth that a Divine Creator inspired our Dream and it already has our Name on it. We won’t have to face our own doubts and fears, if we just keep our eyes trained on a Divine “X” and never look away.
Grandfathers, Grandmothers of the West, show us a way to the end so we can mark it with an “X.” We Know You Know what our Heart needs to Feel to carry out a Mission we can’t see with Human eyes. Help us reach beyond the Truth we can See to the Truth we will Feel. Help us fly toward the Feelings of Love so the Truth will speak to our Heart. Help us Know the One Above who hears our call for Love, waited for us to Choose to Know, and WILL lead us to the Truth. Help us to believe in the Divinity of our Cause and the Only Effect that could be the end of an Offering of Time dedicated to Love.
May we dedicate the Time to look away from everything but the “X” that marks One Love with the Power and Authority over everything. May we Lean In to the Light of Every Divine Thought and follow as far as we can Remember. If the winds change and we fall, may we Remember “God the Intermediary,” our Wings, and a Gift to See the Future from a Divine Perspective.
in lak’ech, i am another you

GRATITUDE FOR THE JAGUAR/IX JOURNEY:
I’m grateful for Divine Ways in the realm of Spirit, where the “Unknown” CAN be Seen as “all possibility,” when we Choose to use the Gifts we are given.
The Daykeeper Resources menu offers a link to a Vision Quest Ceremony for the Night/AKBAL trecena. The Intention of that Vision Quest was to imagine our wildest dreams. This one is different by an Intention of Time dedicated to Silence and Invisibility to Receive a Divine Dream from Above. We are called to be the “hollow bone” in Humility to a Higher One Above. The information that’s shared can be applied in a different way for this purpose, Your Way. Vision Quest Ceremony
THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX
The Highlights, Peak Energies, and Times of Synchronicity for this trecena are included on the 13-Day Trecena Guide.
The “Tzolk’in Field Guide” is my gift to download that includes the Count of Days with the aspects for each Destiny Kin and highlights for a personal practice with each trecena. It’s designed as a companion for daily practice.
A NEW RESOURCE: Destiny Kin Calculator
For those of you who can make use of a XLS spreadsheet, I’m passing on a gift that was shared with me. Instead of calculating Mayan dates from the Gregorian date, you can calculate the Gregorian date of a Mayan date from the past or future by it’s KIN number. (For example, you could see when your Mayan birthday falls in the future or past.) I use it to calculate the Gregorian dates for the Mayan Holy Days and Global Burner days.

2 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)
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.
Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.
Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Eagle’s symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation. Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions, cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth, a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance.
