Greetings Beloved Kin,
The next trecena, led by the Jaguar/IX is an invisible journey. The only Truth we know about our Self is the Dream shining from our Mother’s Face, when she held us in her arms. Maybe that explains when babies turn every which way from looking at you – when they feel someone looking too close for something they wanted to see.
It’s an equal priority to know the Truth of our Spirit. IX (eesh) symbolizes the Divine Feminine with heightened senses of discernment. A Jaguar feels the truth of vibration all the way around. We can feel things coming through every Spiritual Experience. Mystical experiences are impossible to share and expect anyone else “to KNOW” it’s the truth. They are only ours to hold in Secret – so the Power is Held for its highest purpose above.
A Vision for the Future
What is the Reason for any Power you hold, if the One Above will apply it to the Beauty of the Whole Creation? It’s a test of Inner Strength and Wisdom to remember the Truth – that we aren’t thinking about, when we expect one experience to ever tell the whole story… Especially, when we’re just beginning. We’ve changed. It’s EASY to see in the Whole of Us. At least the Maya counted these days under the Power of Harmonic Resonance, and tuned in by the Master Number 11, under the Year Bearer, 11 Deer/MANIK… the Highest Master Priest. 11 always symbolizes an only, first, best, united, beginning. 11 catches our subconscious attention and if we look at it, we like to see 111 or 1111 even more. Like Light, we’re drawn to the direct line between Above and Below. IX on another scale of value is a Roman Numeral that expresses the value of 9.
There is a Harmony between us made possible by a Brand New beginning. We’ve been prepared by a Dream Before, and a Dream we’ve claimed will be brand new – something of our very own.
We can SEE the REAL TRUTH about the Human Spirit. We don’t ever have to be the “victim” under the influence of someone else’s thoughts. Another TRUTH that’s REAL – chances are, if we’re trying to live in the Integrity of our Truth and True Value, all we really need to carry on is ONE other Human Being to say that it’s “impossible for us to do.” Or, is that just me?
A Vision Quest is an Offering to Go within to see what your made of. The Time is 4 Days for Sacred Ceremony, We’ll take our first step on the Day of Movement, and complete the journey at the top of the pyramid. The Truth of our Whole Identity is waiting like a brand new pair of clothes. You can learn everything when you are choosing to be invisible. Prepare by thinking ahead to the ways you can “fast the time” for Higher Time in Spirit. Is there something you would wear at the altar? Or on your wrist for work to remember to mince words? Reset the altar with your symbols of White. The Dance Chief on the Medicine Wheel path handed out instructions weeks in advance – I remember 144,000 prayer ties in 4 colors, with 1 color of your choice in between. Every garment was made by hand for the purpose. Stitching a bookmark, or braiding an altar string to connect the NW to the SE. Lay a human hand to some creation that is a tangible reminder of the experience and use it to begin saying your prayers to Ask for a Divine Communion with the One.
IX is the Power to Claim Our OWN Way – the ONLY time for it is in the beginning. As soon as we claim our Self, we have to learn to make the ultimate sacrifice. This is an important time to tend yourself with Mother’s Love. It wasn’t long before Mother and Child wondered when it would be over. From both sides, this Time happens in a flash. And, that’s all the kid remembers. That Mother’s duty, “that went on forever” was just a snap. That’s why we need to monkey around. A sense of Humor comes in handy when we step out into the Illusion our Spirit will See as the Truth of the world.
I don’t offer any further recommendations than a calendar ordered by thoughts above and thoughts below. IX holds the Element of Wind, the Breath of Life, and the First Breath of Spirit. Imagine what you would Love to Know is True. 11 Deer/MANIK leans on the Highest Truth as it’s Staff. There are prayers every hour of the day for the Highest Good of the Whole. We can claim the 13th Tribe is already finished by Love of the Whole, in lak’ech. Choose a way that feels beautiful to you.
This is the Year of the Tiger that’s been pacing back and forth in its cage – waiting for the chance for an open door. All Power must be Held by a Hand Above, on behalf of the Living Human Being who could be corrupted absolutely, without the Wisdom to Give it Back, and to Use it as the Truth of Knowing it IS and it’s wielded by the Hand of the Highest Authority of Life, Love, and Happiness for the whole.
9 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
