THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: CREATING A LIFE FROM SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 3 a New Creation is brought to Life by an Intention of Movement. A thought precedes every application of Human Will. A “thought before” is the Beginning of the story when we move on a Dream. We see what’s in the cupboard before we ever go to the kitchen. Seeing what we want is the Reason we move. On Tone 3 the One Above and One Below are united by a Divine Meaning and Purpose.
Tone 3 offers the “application” for the Inspiration of our Dream. When Human holds a Reason to make a Leap of Faith, the 2 are united in Divine Trinity. Something Divine will compel us to reach for the Light. We are following the Jaguar’s footprints. Every step of the way will be Divine.
Through physical movement or the dissemination of communication, a Sound is born in the Universe. The Tone and Frequency are established by the Reason we move. Like a musical string, the Tone we strike at the beginning will carry on to the end.
CIB reflects the Highest State of Human Consciousness, connected to the Collective Wisdom of Humanity. The totem Owl holds the Vision of the Eagle that can see through the dark, what’s ahead and what’s behind. CIB is the “mystical ferryman” that holds the torch aloft for the journey back to the “otherside.” CIB holds the Key to the Kingdom as the Wisdom of Forgiveness. CIB reminds us of the archeological treasures to be found in the past. CIB guides us to find the way by following the Truth we’ve witnessed along the way.
There will be times when we lose our direction, though we will know a Wise Next Thing to do. Divine Inspiration will come while we’re taking care of other human business. Connected by CIB to the Ancient Wisdom of the past, we can be an unconscious witness to the Signs and Symbols passed down through Time.
CIB appears when the student is ready. The first step we can take toward the Wisdom is a Movement of Humility. We can claim our Human limitations from the start. Yet, we still have to make a valiant effort. CIB resides in the South, guiding the Intentions of Right Relationship in the realm of physicality. CIB offers the Light of our Collective Wisdom, and the Truth of our Common Condition. Our only hope is the Collective Wisdom of Human experience, and the Humility to claim how little we know.
We have to Forgive to see the past in the Light of Truth. Every “failure” taught us something we remember. CIB guides us to a Divine Discernment we will have faith to believe, when we’ve taken our time to Consciously think things through. Even if we “fail” again, we’ll know we we Consciously CHOSE to move for a REASON that Intended the Highest End. We all share the same Human limitations in Common. Our best guidance is Truth born out by Human Experience, and the Divine Counsel of a Divine Creator.
CIB guides a way forward by resolving the Truth we haven’t learned from the past. The Light to see the way will be the tangible unresolved matters we’ve been dragging behind us for no good reason.
CIB can hold a torch aloft with the Light all around to see WHY we’ve made Choices in the past. We can learn a LOT about our Self through EVERY conscious choice we make. Conscious Choices are matters of higher priority, we KNOW we need to think through. CIB can guide us to engage the Common Sense of Thought.
CIB will remind us that we will never be left in the Darkness. When the fog sets in on the journey to the “other side” there are many other things to do until the coordinates come back into clear view.
Guided on a Quest by the Jaguar, we only have to remember the next wise thing is to look down at our feet. We are Here and NOW for a Divine Reason. Just MAYBE we’ll know the ANSWER when we use the Time to see Love right where we are. We may not even recognize that PEACE is HAPPINESS.
To all my relations, may we take an honest look at our own bad habits and annoying ways. May we give our self credit if we are remembering what we’re doing a little bit sooner than before, and the Gold Star when we forgive our Self and extend the same Love to the Whole.
May we set the Tone and Frequency for a Divine Journey, kneeling to offer our Spoken prayers. May we call upon the Universe to Hear our Gratitude for the Divine Life that IS and ALWAYS WILL BE. May we know how Wise it is to forgive, when it always ends remembering the Love we’ve forgotten.
in lak’ech, i am another you,
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
HOLDING THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR: The Power of Gratitude
I’m glad that when we’re so proud of our self for thinking, the Creator is proud too.
Wisdom shared by Minisa Crumbo Halsey, 1 Wind/IK:
Watch the thoughts like an eagle. Upon identifying undesirable, unloving, depressive, angry, fearful, controlling, or manipulative, jealous, vengeful, or sorrowful thoughts, acknowledge and honor them. Pull the weeds of the Divine Garden. Maintenance. Aspire also to learn the content and meaning of their message and immediately, or as soon as possible, direct and return them to the great reservoir of spirit energy, where they will be purified and renewed. Release them to make their own blessing journey and return to Source, sending them on their return path with gratitude and love, on the breath as well as thought. The eyes can also direct releases, with permission, to the clouds. The breath, being the constant link with life and the Divine is ever present, able, and willing to transmute and transform into Spirit, that which is truly dead, dying or diseased . . . no longer wanted or needed. Be sure that only ones personal business is addressed. At all times be observant of others’ sacred and psychic privacy and freedom of choice.
Maintaining a respectful mien, which is increasingly built by mindful, positive choices and growing awarenesses of what and how we think, act, and intend at all times, is essential. This practice of thorough attention is a cumulative, life process and will grow more robust with practice and the seasons, so move forward and regularly provide the sweet water of loving kindness to the young Sacred Flowering Tree, and to the young skebyak, the green beings, born of the same elemental parents as ourselves. What kind of tree or shrub are you? ~ Minisa Crumbo Halsey
VISION QUEST: Day 1 of 4
We begin our Vision Quest on the 1st Day of Movement. A Vision Quest is a Time set apart for the Divine Inspiration from Spirit. It is the Movement of Prayer that creates a Sound in the Universe. A Vision Quest is carried out as an Intention of Vigilant Consciousness in the moment. It’s easier when you can do it in retreat, though no one will see an invisible sacred ceremony carried out through the every day dance of Life. We can follow a Divine thought while we’re washing the dishes. We are called to Witness Life as Human, Being. Reaching to know a Divine Mystery, the Light of a Way is a Divine Answer we are Intended to Know. You might built an altar in nature, or a little circle of stones on the bedside table.
The Elders always said that Sacred Ceremony can be carried out in the realm of Spirit. This is an important time to move. Even if we’ve lost the facility of physical movement, we can draw our Consciousness to the Life that Moves within to assign THAT movement a Divine Meaning and Purpose. We can hum a Divine Tune. We could ALL afford to invest every faculty of Consciousness and Physicality that we can dedicate to the experience. A Vision Quest is a retreat, a fast from the world as an Offering to the Light.
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

3 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons.
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ O’JJ: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritative. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.

My gift for a New Tzolk’in Round…
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Crocodile/IMIX trecena.
My gift for this Tzolk’in round is linked there, a Tzolk’in Field Guide that has as much about the basic aspects of each day as I could think to put into it. The directions and the elements are aspects of Universal Laws that can be known in MANY ways, through many kinds of practice. My aim with the dates for each trecena, included for the next few years, was an intention that we could have everything for a day in one place at hand, if we didn’t have a computer.
QUESTIONS TO SELF:
How can I retreat from the world for a climb of Spirit? How can I be invisible for 4 days from Tone 3 through Tone 6… our Human climb to a new Summit of Spiritual Growth? What is my Highest Hope and what am I willing to bring as an Offering and a Living Sacrifice to Give Back for the Sacred Exchange? Where am I now? And, what is the Dream in the Future for everything MY Life could be?
