THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: CREATING A LIFE IN SPIRIT
Greetings Beloved Kin,
Sacred Ceremony is Time dedicated to a Divine Meaning and Purpose, an Offering to the Creator. From human’s perspective in the down-below, we only see the blood, sweat, and tears. We can’t see how the experience will change our life while it’s happening. The major life change comes after, as the Sacred Exchange.
This was true of my pilgrimage to Ek’ Balam, expected to be a pinnacle experience as an “impossible” dream that came true. I couldn’t climb a single stair without leaning on someone else. When I did find a place to sit down on a log, I rolled off backwards. Nothing went according to the plan and the vision I imagined before. At the same time, there were signs and wonders, yet hard to see beyond my limitations. Ek’ Balam offers an initiation of the “Illumination of Darkness.” I thought that meant that darkness would be swept away, and it was, After. Though, in the time and place, the darkness of all my shadows was brought to Light. In the end, just getting back home felt like the longest lonely pilgrimage of all.
A Vision Quest is Sacred and the Time we dedicated to the purpose will matter more than we can imagine. We know the Truth, though it lies between the steps of darkness and light. Something has to die for something new to be born. We have to grieve the past. There’s no other way to rise above it. At least we can remember that Truth we Feel creates a memory we can’t forget. CIMI offers the Transformation to tear down an existing order. The purpose is to restore our equilibrium for a new and higher order.
Have you changed? Did you see choices you would never make again? Did you see your intentions to love from a new angle?
I saw clearly how I gave myself away, willing to compromise everything for the fear that there was no other way to receive the sacred exchange. I also saw that “giving everything” only creates higher expectations in return. I saw how it happened over and over again, and how the cause always ended with the same effect. It seemed like it could go on forever. Maybe it takes a force of “over-correction” to turn the tides. At least I see a “choice to Love” is an investment that deserves a discernment of the whole truth from a beginning to an end.
An offering of Love can create a sense of obligation to “go along.” Love isn’t True if “going along” is a condition.
Mark this time in a journal so you won’t forget the Time and an Intention of the Highest Order. We can always count on the One Above for the Sacred Exchange. I was thinking about the 13th uinal and the climb to our Highest Ascension – less than a month ago. I was flying high then. From past experience, I knew I would forget the Truth of Answered Prayers. Remembering I was going to forget didn’t make forgetting feel any better. You can only be prepared to forget. Remember, there is a Time and Place in the future where we will know the Truth of Answered Prayers again. It may seem impossible now, but that’s only because we are reaching higher than before. A Divine Order for Time will see us through.
“The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
~ Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV
with all my love, in lak’ech, Debra

13 Transformer/CIMI (Search 13 Transformer for more.)
“CIMI is a Sign of a Major Life Change.”
Tone 13 marks an Ascension to Higher Consciousness. On Tone 13 we can see new Dreams, new Choices, and New Possibilities. On Tone 13 we see new mountains to climb. We want to try again, or start something new.
13 is the symbol of theurgy, Human’s provision to call upon a Divine Agency through our sacred rituals and ceremonies. 3 represents the Power of Trinity and also the Intention of Movement. Faith in Motion is Human’s greatest Power.
Transformer/CIMI is the midwife that never leaves our side. Those born CIMI served those going through the major transitions of Life and Death. CIMI shares the Gift of Clairvoyance to see the Future. CIMI represents the Creator’s “soft hand,” the one that encourages us to “Let Go, and Let God.” We are watched over by one that knows exactly what to do in any moment.
Through the Wisdom of our Experience we found a hand that won’t let go. CIMI can remind us that we can see the future. Chaos is the sign of Major Life Change. To create a new life we have to break down an existing order. We only have to look to see that current circumstances are an unsustainable way of life. We can clearly see it’s no where near the Divine Dream we imagined. We only have to remember the Promise of Unconditional Love and a Dream for Life, Love, and Happiness, carried out by the living things without a choice.
CIMI resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom. Holding the Element of Air, CIMI relates to thoughts, consciousness, and the workings of the mind. A Supreme Creator speaks through the Wind and holds the Authority over every breath. CIMI reminds us to use the Sacred Breath to quiet the mind of reason when we forget.
13 Transformer/CIMI is a Divine Initiation of Human Wisdom, the first Answers to our prayers for a Life of Love and Happiness. This is day to celebrate a Major Life Change that is carried out by the Divine Trinity of the Holy, Holy, Holy, created by a Hand Above and a Hand Below, invested in Life for the Sake of Love.
A Sacred Breath of Air can change the landscape of our thoughts. Air is the most critical element of Life in the Moment. When we face the chaos of major change we might notice that we hold our breath. We stop growing and life begins to ebb away when we engage our doubts and fears. The Elders say that the way through is to Breathe and Be Breathed by Spirit.
The Transitions of Life and Death are the major events of our life that lie in the Unknown. There will be times when only the One by our Side will see the way through. CIMI is the Promise that a Divine Provision is always near. When we reach our human ends, a Higher One will see us through.
We are being born into a new life. The glyph illustrates the face of death to remind us that something always dies when something new is born. An old familiar way won’t carry us beyond the limits we’ve known before. By the Law of Cause and Effect, we have to change our cause to manifest a new effect. Our Transformation depends on reaching for Higher Dreams. Even old dreams will be new, when we see a Higher Destination.
The Jaguar/IX trecena led us to the Wisdom of the Seed, the Miracle of Knowing who we are and our own Highest Expression of Love. When we don’t forgive, WE create the veil that covers the Truth of Love. We unconsciously filter Love out of the picture. To cross every threshold to Spirit, we hold the Wisdom of the shape-shifter, the one that can change Reality as easily as a change of mind.
Whenever we feel lost, we can look at our feet to Remember the Truth of the Divine Place we ARE. In the 2nd uinal we can weave a new fabric and filter for life. We only have to Count our Blessings to find a thread to weave the Real Truth of Time. We can create the filter that Remembers that Human Beings forget. Our heart never has to carry the burden of Love. LOVE is enough. Love is a Power to carry out its own ends. The Light will ALWAYS be for the one that will look again, when they know they were forgiven.
Our Spirit is the Beauty that we are and will always be. Spirit will lead us until we find the footprints. We don’t have to be afraid of running into a Jaguar. The Jaguar is long gone by the time we notice and there will always be Light ahead. Our Spirit goes before and we know how to follow. We hold the “magic” to look down at our feet and Give Thanks for the Love we CAN see in every Time and Place.
In our own darkness, we can see “all that is not” is who we never choose to be. May we Count our Blessings that we CAN cross from the darkness to the Light that always leads a way to Love.
in lak’ech, i am another you

HOLDING THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR: The Power of Gratitude
I’m grateful for places that the Jaguar can lead our heart.
May we give thanks for a Sacred Ceremony that was Seen as Light from Above. May we know that we created a Divine Cause for Love. For every Time we dedicate our self to the Purpose of Divine Relationship, like every relationship, Trust in the Truth and Love Between us Grows. A Divine Creator intends a Blessing that we will Know as the Sacred Exchange. One Sacred Ceremony can last a lifetime for the Divine Inspiration it can inspire on down the road. It’s important to journal the experience for the small details you’ll be glad to remember that you couldn’t see while it was going on. It was hidden as a Gift for the Future, to know that it will never be forgotten by the One Above, and we will ALWAYS be heard when our heart sings the Divine Song of the Universe.

13 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA)
Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.
Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.
Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.
