VISION QUEST: CREATING A LIFE IN SPIRIT
Greetings Beloved Kin,
The Elders cautioned that for every Intention to hold Divine Communion in the realm of Spirit, we should define the Rules of Engagement by Commanding that the only Spirits that were welcome in our Circle are messengers of the Highest Order under the Authority of the Divine Creator. We draw the line of protection from any being of Spirit that does not hold the Highest Intentions of Divine Justice on behalf of the whole.
The Unseen forces in the Spiritual realm are beyond the limits of Human’s imagination. It’s worthy to admit that we don’t know what we’re doing, and to call upon the Creator for Divine Protection.
Ephesians 6:12 (NIV)
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
We can begin by setting the boundaries and parameters for our thoughts. It is worthy to establish one place to go, whether it be an altar, a Sanctuary within, or a prayer closet where we can close the door.
“The Full Armor of God”
The Helmet of Salvation: Officials are identified by the hats they wear. To wear the Helmet of Salvation we only have to Remember we are children of the Creator. In every offering, the Sacred Exchange is Atonement to know how we are seen and acknowledged by the Highest One of Unconditional Love.
The Breastplate of Righteousness: Our Righteousness is the Truth of our own Intentions. We are not the judge or jury for any Human Being. Nor do we have the Wisdom to identify a Spirit of Darkness from the Spirit of Light that is carrying out the Balance of Divine Will. We are wearing the Breastplate when we are humbled to search our own Heart. We can ask to be protected from the darkness that is the pride of our own ego.
The Shield of Faith: The battle between Good and Evil is not our war to fight. Our Faith in a Divine Authority is the shield that goes before as the One whom we surrender to the Truth of our Human limitations.
The Belt of Truth: The Truth of our own Intentions to serve in Divine Trinity, will hold all the pieces and parts of our armor together.
The Sword of the Spirit: The Word and the Promises spoken as the Breath of God is a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. When we face a battle from our mind of reason, the Word of a Divine Covenant and Wisdom from Above will pierce the veil of the lies of the Evil one. Choose the Words that that support your Faith to Believe.
Proverbs 16:3 – “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”
The Sandals of Peace: Our best foot forward is to Lead with the Intention of Love, Forgiveness, and Tolerance to hold the Intention of Divine Understanding. When we stumble, we can retreat into the boundaries and parameters of the Creator’s Truth of Unconditional Love.
Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV) – The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
I had a skirmish with the evil one yesterday. I was heading out to bring home some palm leaves to decorate the entry to my home in honor of Palm Sunday. The palm plants I’d seen on sale at Walmart were cheaper than anything I would find at the local florist. I imagined how I could decorate it with Easter Eggs. On the heels of that thought I remembered ones who cast shame on my spiritual ways, and what they might think if they drive-by. I nearly turned around when I saw the thought of my ego. Then I remembered my First Inspiration. I didn’t let confusing thoughts stop me from claiming the Joy of the Offering.
Truth doesn’t leave any questions or create a mind of confusion. If you are divinely called to take any action, turn away negative second thoughts (ie. should I, or should I not? Am I right or wrong?). Remember what you were Divinely called to do.
The Deer shared the way of Vigilance and Standing Silently without defense. Divine Truth will Speak for itself. Jaguar/IX shares the Senses to know our own Truth. May we record the Signs we see in a journal so we will remember what we’re likely to forget.
I’m grateful for a Divine Pack for prayers on behalf of the whole, so we can all remember the exponential power of Divine Trinity.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: A JOURNEY TO THE LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
1 Jaguar/IX (eesh), Cherokee, Panther/SOHO’NI, Destiny Kin 14
April 2, 2023 (04/02/2023)
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.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you.
