Dawn of a New Awakening

Greetings Beloved Kin,

12 Crocodile / IMIX

Crocodile/IMIX is a symbol of the Primordial Mother. The Crocodile holds the aspects of the primal instincts for life and love. The totem crocodile lives in search of its next meal and is fiercely protective of her young.

The Aztec Day is Cipactli, governed by Tonacatecuhtli, Lord of Nurturance, an auspicious day, signifying advancement and honor. It depicts energy and work, rewards and recognition. A good day for beginnings. The thirteen day period (trecena) that starts with day 1-Itzcuintli (Dog) is ruled by Xipe Totec, Lord of Shedding, god of seedtime. These are 13 days of devotion, companionship, self-sacrifice and love. This trecena points to the eternal conflict that tears at every human being: suspended between two great communions, love and mysticism, each of us strives to survive being swallowed whole by either. On the one hand, the painful shedding of illusions, and on the other, the pleasurable creation of illusions. What ever your decision during this time, you will find favor and advancement. These are good days for commemorating the dead; bad days for clinging to the living. Source: AztecCalendar.com

The Transformation phase of each trecena carries on from Tone 8 to Tone 12, guided by a Hand of Divine Agency. The same holds true for the 13 unials of the Tzolk’in round. The highest intentions for a New Seed are manifested by the Creator. The future is guided by Divine Intervention to lead us to our next “higher time and place of Knowing.” The 10th uinal guides the Intention for Manifestation. The Dreams for our Creation are manifested from Above, as ordered by Time in compliance with the Laws of the Universe and the Divine Design.


The IMIX glyph illustrates the Mother’s breast, or the jar that holds the milk that nourishes the Life intended to be. The straight lines that curve at the end are the same symbols found on the glyph for CABAN that began in the East as our First linear thought of objective consciousness (ie. seeing what is) in the process of Discernment. On the glyph for CABAN the line turns at the end to the faculty of Human’s imagination. The circles represent the 3rd Divine Thought that completes the Truth. The circles exist outside of Human’s “train of thought” and represent the Leap to consider Divine Possibilities to discern “what it is” and “what it means.”

The first lines come from the South on the glyph for IMIX, the direction of our tangible experiences in the “lower place.” They don’t engage Human’s imagination, but go straight to the Divine Source and First Experience of Unconditional Love. It’s Time to remember that when we had no means or way of taking care of our Self, by Divine Design, the Creator manifested a way. IMIX raises consciousness to a Direct Source for Life, and the Divine Inspiration that offers the Passion to Live and to reach our Highest Potential.


The Primal Instinct of the primordial mother is a sense of duty to raise us to stand on our own. Every mother feels it.  “Standing on our own” means she must allow her children to choose their own life. (Do Crocodile families live together? Most reptiles live solitary lives, but many species of crocodilians often live together in large groups. However, these groups of animals do not form cohesive bonds or social structure outside of their size. They congregate together at basking areas and lie in the sun quite close to one another. Google)

IMIX represents the first light of Knowing as an experience of “wild ideas” that come straight out of the blue. The thoughts come in random order, disassociated from other thoughts that would lead us to a discernment of meaning or purpose. The first order of business to stand on our own two feet is to discern the truth for our self. IMIX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine that holds the highest intentions for Discernment and the Consciousness of Compassionate Love. A Divine Mother knows how we feel. Care and feeding are the easiest duties of Motherhood. Her most difficult duty is pushing us out of her nest. She has to let us go so we have to reach beyond her Love to the Highest One Above. That’s the only way we’ll ever stand on our own when Mother’s dead and gone.

The “wild ideas” are offered as an experience to Know in a tangible way that the ways and means that stand forever are offered from Above. IMIX is a very mentally active day, observed by the Maya as Time to pray for good sense and reason. Wild ideas are given out of order as the sign that we’re not intended to know what they mean, but to know that all our Dreams are inspired by the One Above. Don’t go clawing for the first shiny idea you see. It takes time to discern the Dream you really Love. The most Divine Wild Idea will be offered when it’s Time. And, when it’s Time, you’ll know exactly what it means, when Love like the Element of Fire, ignites the Truth in your heart.Today marks the end of the first quarter Moon. A Divine Intention has been ordered from Above. Have you been trying to get a clear picture as the focus for your Dreams of the Future? Have you had difficulty “seeing clearly” to know what it is? The most Divine Intention can be offered by the One Above. It may have little to do with the Big Picture you’re imagining as your highest end. Though, it may strike you as the Perfect thing you’d Love to accomplish, right now. We’ve SEEN the bigger picture in the 9th uinal. Now the most important thing to figure out is how to start… something we know we CAN do in the Here and Now. Sometimes, Divine Choices feel like the only choice left to make.

There’s only 2 things we needed to know how to do in the very beginning to begin to create our own life: 1) We lived for the next meal, and 2) we had the natural instinct to cry out for everything we want. We didn’t have to learn it. The ways were given by Divine Agency. When we grow up we learn we don’t have to cry. We only have to share the Truth of our experience, and Ask the One Above to carry out the ends of Divine Will. Truth takes time to know. We’ll know exactly what to do when the Time is right. We’ll comprehend in the ah-ha moment, the next Perfect thing to do.

It’s said that when you claim a “wild idea” from IMIX that you Love, you will manifest a creation that will be seen and acknowledged as Divine Genius. IMIX holds the Element of Fire to ignite our Passion to Live and Do what we Know to do to Grasp the Dream we would Love.

The best thing we can do when we receive the nourishment of Divine Inspiration is to go back to sleep where we are gathered up by the Highest One for the Dream of our next best thing to do for tomorrow. We don’t have to cry out for everything we want, if we’ll only remember there was a God of Nurturance that makes sure that from the beginning, there would be someone who felt our needs and nourished us to Live. We can believe it’s the Truth if we remember that’s how we made it through those first days of Life.

2 Corinthians: 9:8
8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

The Divine Discernment for the “first day of the rest of our life” is realizing that God Provides, and there is a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. We only need to feed on the wisdom of our own life experience in the down below, to Know it’s the Truth. All those times we thought we were “saved by our Mother,” the Higher Truth was that her sense of Duty was a Divine Provision from Above. Human Mothers aren’t perfect. They are selfish when they are afraid to let us go. If you’re a Mother, it may be hard to face the Truth, but you may have thought the Best Mother would be the end-all source for everything. It’s very hard to face the Truth. The only means to find our own way in the world is the “hard road” that will lead us to our Divine Destiny – the Dream we Create, standing on our own two feet with a Hand from Above.

There’s a Divine Provision for Mother’s too, when they realize their duty is over and there’s still time left to reach for our own Dreams. The children were the sages that taught us that PURE LOVE is the end-all Dream for our Highest End. (“Mothers” includes every Human that carried out the care and feeding from a Heart of Compassionate Love.)

Pay attention when you receive a “wild idea” from IMIX. Track your thoughts. What were you thinking about when the “wild idea” came out of the blue. Don’t reach for the first thought. Wait for the “wild idea” you can carry out tomorrow, that you KNOW will support your dream of the Big Picture at the end. IMIX can also deliver a whole download of Truth, along with the way to use it, if it’s Time to Know.

Tone 12 offers the Intention of Understanding that we take to heart as a gift of Comprehension. Understanding the meaning and purpose for here and now will lead us every day when the Sun rises in the East. We’ll think of One thing to do that was better than yesterday. Patience is a virtue when it comes to claiming our Highest Dreams. We have to get prepared to Receive them before they come knocking at the door. What would you be doing if you KNEW your most beautiful dream for Life was already on the way?

One thing we can always do to Love tomorrow more than today. Cry out for someone else, and reach a hand of Compassion to someone else who suffers just the same as you. That’s the Way to manifest a Divine  Meaning and Purpose to every experience of Life.

love, in lak’ech,

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN


I’m grateful for a Divine Hand that is offered from the beginning to the end of our Journey through life, one that always Loves us exactly as we are.

NEW SEASON – VOLUME 2: Tzolk’in Seasons 3 and 4 (PUBLISHED SEPTEMBER 20, 2020)


12 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee, Turtle/DAK’SI  I’SB)

Galactic Tone 12: Twelve is a gift of great capacity of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.

Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI   I’SB: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan is the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth. The beginning of each new era, this star in Orion appears with the rising Sun, heralding the creation of a new World cycle. Totem-Dragon. The energy to understand all things sacred; creation energy, connection for visions, to learn the mysteries of the Universal Knowledge. The dragon carries the source energy of life, revered in ancient cultures for power and wisdom.
