THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“To Be, or Not To Be?”
Tone 2 raises the Intentions of Duality. On Tone 1 we began in Unity, inspired by the Creator’s Dream of Divine Justice. We felt the Fire of the Dream that now feels out of reach. Through Creation we carry on a Divine Communion. It starts with the Creator’s Divine idea.
Tone 2 is Human’s side of the story. We share the possibility we see from our own Time and Place. We think Divine Justice means we “should only get what we deserve.” But, that’s only BEN’s shadow, trying to be “right.” As long as Human Beings have the Right to Choose, we will face injustice in our Life. Divine Justice means that an equal Light will shine brighter in the “sum of the whole.”
Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit. Holding the Element of Air, IX shares the Element of Air for Divine Discernment. IX is the symbol of the Divine Feminine holding the Gift of Compassionate Love. We are faced with a Choice. Whenever the Jaguar appears, we’re guided to a journey toward the East. The Jaguar leaves its invisible footprints on its way to the temples and the sacred altars that it guards in stealth from the shadows.
IX helps us see the Truth of Spirit and the Light that shines from the heart. The Jaguar holds the “earth magic” of Gratitude to cross the threshold of Spirit to see the Truth and the Light from Above. IX holds the Highest Senses to feel the Love of Mother Earth and Life all around. Counting our Blessings for the Beauty of our Time and Place, we will remember. We were given a Beautiful Life, Here and Now. Knowing we Belong Now, we can stop trying to be anything else.
Holding the Element of Air, the Jaguar shares the Sacred Breath that raises the faculties of Divine Discernment. Jaguar/IX gives us a Reason To Be Invisible, when the Offering allows someone else to shine. To fly like an Eagle, we were guided to Lean into the Truth. When we feel “invisible” – not enough for anyone to even see we’re there, it means we also have Invisible Powers. We can perform Miracles when we are invisible. It’s a matter of seeing the Truth from a Divine Perspective, then applying the Light of the HIghest Truth.
IX can help us Love invisibility. The Love we share without any Human fingerprints ARE Miracles of everyday. Whenever we make someone else the “object of our affection” they will See that they Belong. Their thoughts were worthy to consider. (May we never ask for advice or an opinion, just to discount the advice that’s given with a better idea.) We might remember how we feel a little honored when someone asks us for advice. We WANT to share something worthy. Whether it fits our Time or Place, we can always Honor the Offering with our gratitude for something to think about. We shouldn’t give advice unless someone asks for it. Unsolicited advice means that someone has taken the time to see what “we are doing wrong.”
Jaguar/IX can share the Senses for Divine Boundaries. We are meant to respect every Sanctuary of Self. We don’t ever have the right to influence thoughts for our own ends, or propose to know the story in another Time and Place. There is no way we can know the Passions that burn in the Heart. IX shares the Heart of Compassion to know how vulnerable we can feel, when we Need to Know we belong. We have to remember there are Human feelings on both sides, just reaching to be enough. We need to love Both Sides in the Balance. Every heart longs to know that Both Sides are enough, and worthy of Equal Love.
IX holds the “darkness” to see the Light. IX must bear the darkness that weighs on the Human Heart, to know how it feels. To Belong to the Human Race, we were given Life in the Balance. IX’s most Divine Wisdom is to walk in someone else’s shoes, to feel the Truth on the otherside. When we KNOW the burdens that can weigh on a Human Heart, we will know a Divine Reason to Love, and we will APPLY the LIGHT of Truth in a way that shines “enough” from the One that is waiting to See.
To all my relations, may we follow the Jaguar’s invisible way to SEE the Dreams of the Whole. May we take a good look around. We all want to be “good enough” for someone to care about our Human feelings. Life is a Balance. May we Balance Love Above and Below. Life is Real and Human deserves a break. May we let someone else share a Light that is “good enough” to Love for all the broken Human ways we reach to know.
Walking in someone else’s shoes, we will See the Human climb on both sides. May we share the Love of Belonging to create the place where we Belong.
in lak’ech, i am another you

2 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
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.
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 Cherokee 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. Ix: The Kab’awil represents the heart of the planet, the female reproductive tract, the face of a jaguar and points east on the world map. Ix: woman, tiger. Conducive to pray for grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters and wives day. For wisdom at 4 Balances, cunning and protection of Mother Nature. To thank the Earth for sustenance. Ix is the native cunning, enterprising, vigorous, bold and realistic.
