1 Jaguar/IX – Journey to the Light: A Vision Quest (Beginning April 02, 2023)

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Every “1st light” is the Inspiration and Divine Guidance to reach the “2nd light” of knowing. The 2 is a symbol of Human as a being of Duality, a creation of Spirit and Physicality. The Spirit of Consciousness was created first to witness every experience.

The Haab Year 12 Road/EB set the course for an Intention of Human Understanding. This “vague year” of 365 days is marked by 12:12 that magnifies the Power to transcend an identity of physicality. Number 12 is a symbol of the 2 in the “lower place” that shares the journey with the 1 in the “higher place.” We were born to be the witness of a Divine Creation, As Above, So Below.

The 1st uinal is the Legend for the journey, the Genesis for Human Creation through our orbit of 260 days.

Human Understanding is a binary process. We can “hear the Truth,” though it takes an experience for us to comprehend the Truth from our own perspective. Truth Above becomes our Reality below when we see it on the scale of physicality.

Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit that leads us on a journey to the East, where the Sun rises with the Divine Inspiration for every day. The Maya illustrated the place as the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. Number 7 is the symbol of a Truth that we create our own Reality. The Jaguar is identified by the 7 as the Invisible Spirit that guards all the sacred sites and temples in the world. Jaguar/IX holds position 14, 7 x the witness of 2. The Jaguar/IX trecena is a journey we make as a Divine co-creator. Numbers represent the first universal language. The first experience of Life was 1 that became 2, and multiplied to infinity.

Beauty was the 2nd language of the Heart that speaks to our Spirit as the Truth of the Creator’s Intention of Love. IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, the “feminine pronoun” applied to the language of the Maya. The Divine Feminine was the Heart and Soul Mate of a Divine Father, manifested as the Creation of Mother Earth. She shares the Word manifested as the Beauty of everything in the 4 directions all around. The aspects of the Divine Feminine are Compassionate Love and the Divine Consciousness to Discern the Truth. “As Above, So Below” is the “great law” of Creation. It means that what we create from any plane of Consciousness will be manifested in every realm of Being.

The realm of Spirit is real. The world below is only an illusion. Our Ego makes up the cast of characters, and every scenario without knowing the Truth of anything. We can only see the Truth in our own Time and Place. Everything created was born from our Imagination.

Beauty is the Creator’s Song of the Uni-verse, the Highest Vibration and Purest Sound of Love. All living things are drawn into sympathy by the Truth of Love. Our Heart spends a lifetime reaching to find Love that sees us for who we really are in spite of all our Human limitations.

A Vision Quest is Time dedicated to an Intention to Live by Spirit alone. By Native American tradition it was Time set apart in the wilderness for fasting to live by Breath, Alone. The Sacred Ceremony was carried out in a Circle that set the boundaries to exist as One in Divine Trinity for a Sacred Meaning and Purpose. The Elders say we can change our life in 4 days of Sacred Ceremony, the Time it takes to see the Truth from every perspective in the down-below.

Ritual and Sacred Ceremony is the offering of theurgy, a power offered to Humanity to call upon the Power of Divine Agency to Intervene in Human affairs below. We don’t all have the equal opportunity of Time to step away from the world. But we all exist in a circle in Spirit defined by the boundaries of Love. We transcend from the 12 to the 13, when our thoughts are drawn into Divine Trinity. When 2 Divine Trinities are united as One, we manifest an even Higher One. The Highest One is the 2 in 1. Elohim is a name of God in the Bible that is a Masculine Name defined by a “Feminine pronoun.” The Highest One holds the Consciousness of both the Masculine and Feminine, the same as we do. Our “masculine side” is the power of inspiration and physicality. Our “feminine side” is the Heart that shares the experience of another to discern the Highest Ways by “knowing how it feels.”

The Jaguar is the nahual of “higher senses” of everything in the all around. Jaguars are rarely seen, except for the footprints they leave behind. There’s no fear in following the Jaguar’s path. If you see the footprints, the Jaguar has already seen you. The Jaguar’s path is the journey of invisibility and stealth. When Jaguar is the “lord of Time” we’re guided toward the East on the path to the Light of Spirit in the Holy of Holies. To follow, all we have to do is  look down at our feet. If the footprints are invisible, we can claim we’re exactly where we are meant to be. There is always a divine purpose for the Here and Now.

There is always Beauty to see in the moment. A Sanctuary was created as a place to exist beyond all worldly matters. IX is the  Power of Spirit that serves as the Guardian of Mother Earth and every Living Thing.

The next 12 days guide us to the Truth and Reality of Spirit. Human’s journey is completed in the 4 days of Movement, beginning on Tone 3 to Tone 7. At the zenith of our climb, the creation is finished by a Hand of Divine Agency on the 9, and realized by Human on the Tone 10 of Manifestation. Our Resolution and Comprehension of the Truth is conceived on Tone 11 and 12, shared by the “Elohim” – the 2 Divine Trinities as 1.

The New Seed of our Self was raised by the Ascension of Truth we claimed before. The energy of Life never ceases to exist, it can only be transferred to another state of being.

On Tone 1 we reside in Unity with the Divine Father of Creation. The 1st Light shares a Reason to follow. It’s still a matter of Choice for Human to follow the Golden Rule. The Golden proportions of Love manifest Beauty in the “eye of the beholder.” A Divine Father will Love us either way. Though, we are Intended to Know the Truth. If we don’t choose now, we’ll have a second chance to “go around again,” until we Do Know.

If your experience has been anything like mine, we’ve seen enough Truth to know how dark human choices can be. I don’t need to see anymore to believe the Truth of EVERY possibility. I’m willing to fail to reach for a New Life offered through Faith in the Highest One.

To walk in the footprints of the Jaguar we walk in stealth. We don’t have to prove our Self to anyone. We have to trust our senses to lead us in the right direction. The Jaguar sees Mother Earth as the Source for every blessing. Ask the Creator for everything you need. Share your secrets with no one but the Creator so you can pour out the Truth in your heart. Reach to the Only One that can keep a promise to create the Mystery of your life that no one else needs to know until you reach the end. Walk in someone else’s shoes to see your Truth in the Reflection. No one wants to be needed. We all want to be loved in Right Relationship. Tend your own garden on Mother Earth to create the place where Faith can grow. The Creator will share the Unseen Truth of darkness or light that’s “written between the lines.”

The Jaguar resides in the North, the place of Divine Wisdom that holds the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. The Element of Air relates to the faculties of Human Consciousness to hear the Truth Spoken by the Creator. Knowledge doesn’t mean a thing. Wisdom is created when we Apply the Truth we know. The Jaguar shares the Gift of Reflection.

12 Road/EB brought a Truth to Light on a planetary scale. The Creator offered a “first light” of Divine Justice. Regardless of how we define it, we witnessed the experience on a planetary scale. That was the “first light” to see there is a divine meaning for Time. The truth of a mystery will be revealed by the Creator when it’s Divine Time to know.

We can create a Sanctuary for our Vision Quest by drawing a Circle around us as a boundary where we can exist with the Only One in Divine Trinity. We can turn EVERY Human matter over to the One Above, even our Intention of Forgiveness. We weren’t intended to offer Salvation to the darkness of Evil. We don’t know a thing about the Powers of Light and Darkness in the Universe. We can offer the Prayer of the Savior, asking a Divine Father to forgive. We can create a “prayer closet” to shield our Dreams from the eyes of the evil one.

We are learning a new way to walk in the world. The Jaguar holds the power to overcome every enemy under the cloak of invisibility. Follow YOUR way. Don’t turn to ANY Human to know Your Way. The Elders say that the traditions passed down are only “worthy and proven tools” we can borrow until we create our own, inspired by the One.

EVERY way and every tradition founded on the Golden Rule is a Divine Way. We can stand on an Only Way that holds a place in our Heart. Every Only Way of Love was inspired by the Highest One. That is the Only Way to See and Acknowledge the Light in everyone.

To all my relations, may we Remember that the chord we strike from the beginning will be sustained to the end. We can’t hold an Intention to Love and manifest an end of Hate, not if we offer our Life into the Hands of the Only One.

Be as different as you would Love to be. It’s safe to be different when your way is a mystery. The Human thoughts that impose an influence of darkness will crumble when “false truth” has to be created out of thin air. We’ll clearly Feel the difference from the Light that’s held within. The Beauty of the Creator’s Truth is revealed through every living thing on Earth.

Psalms 91:4 - He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

The Guardian of the IX trecena is 13 Transformer/CIMI – the symbol of the Holy Spirit and the Comforter that will always be by our side. 13 CIMI is the Divine Sign of a Major Life Change on the scale of “life and death.” The Seed of our Higher Self is growing in the darkness of the Unknown. On 13 CIMI we’ll break through to the Light. CIMI will share the Gift of Clairvoyance to see a vision of the Future in plain sight.

To the Highest One, on behalf of every Heart that reaches to know you,

Cover us under your wing. Open our eyes to the Truth. Thank you for the Comforter that holds our hand through and around every worldly matter. Remind us to Count our Blessings and open our eyes to the Beauty in every direction.

Thank you for Love that accepts us as we are.  Help us to see our self through your eyes.


love, in lak’ech,
I am another you, grateful for all your different secret ways to follow the Light of the Only One. Our paths are destined to cross when we reach the end.

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

PS. 8 Crocodile/IMIX is the Holy Day of Divine Justice in the Jaguar/IX trecena. The Time falls in synchronicity with Easter Sunday, April 9, 2023.

The Highlights, Peak Energies, and Times of Synchronicity for this trecena are included on the  13-Day Trecena Guide.

The “Tzolk’in Field Guide” is my gift to download that includes the Count of Days with the aspects for each Destiny Kin and highlights for a personal practice with each trecena. It’s designed as a companion for daily practice.

Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide. to download a free copy. Volume 1 covers the first two seasons of the Tzolk’in, and Volume 2 covers the 3rd and 4th to the end of the Tzolk’in round.

The beginning is a good place to start a dedicated daily practice to record the Truth of your daily experience. When you track your the thoughts and experiences that don’t appear to mean a thing, you’re mind will be changed the next time around when the same thing happens again on the very same day. At least you’ll question the coincidence to see the Truth of Divine Synchronicity, when it happens the 3rd time – and you KNOW Time had a meaning and you were exactly where you were supposed to be.  I’ve forgotten all about miracles that happened before, until I see them happen again. That’s when you see that YOUR story was already written before you were even born.

1 Jaguar/IX  (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Descriptions by Ian Xel Lungold, 12 Sun/AHAU, recorded at MayanMajix.com

Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

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 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.

      • Yes indeed. Old tree, it was a bit fractured from The middle so it was a bit dangerous. A beautiful tall tree, there is still another half of it left.
        It is nice nature here, and sea is not far away either.!

      • Oh, then i should be especially thankful of this one!
        Other maples are also atleast a half of the size here, so it must be a good sport for a maple.
        Which part of the world are you, if i may ask ?

        With love, Aatu

      • I live on the Kansas plains close to the center of the USA. The grass is what grows the tallest here. The tall-grass prairies are known to grow as high as six feet, with roots that reach as deep. We still have some beautiful terrain along the rivers. The average Maple tree is about 50 feet, I’d guess. We live in the balance of the 4 seasons and are lucky to receive the Sun and clear skies through most of it. People are pretty down-to-earth farmers – this is the “bread basket” that produces a great share of the world’s wheat harvest. 🙂 love and blessings back, in lak’ech, Debra


      • Wow, that sounds amazing, and beautiful.
        I have never seen so tall grass, it is fascinating.
        I hope the beautiful terrains will prevail, it is important i think. Many thanks for the wheat, hoping a rich crops for your farmers.
        Many blessings, and a sunny spring to you!

      • My grandma told stories about the old days when you could only see a head/hat of someone riding up on a horse through the grass! Blessings back. I’ll be watching for the first wheat harvest reports. 🙂 Blessings back.


  1. Haha, that sounds great!! Must have been lot of fun going through the grass fields riding a horse. ☺️
    Brings me memories when i was a child and we crawled in a rye fields, making tunnels through the rye grass. It was a lot of fun for a kid, but parents was not happy when they saw the tunnels. 😅
    Thank you very much for sharing stories.
    Love, Aatu
