Greetings Beloved Kin,
Tone 3 is the Creator’s side of our Divine Conversation. This is the 1st day of Movement in the Jaguar/IX trecena. The Creator offers the Divine Inspiration to set a Dream on-course. On Tone 3 we create the Sound and Vibration through the Spoken Word, or an Action of Movement. The Intention we set at the Beginning is the Tone that will be sustained all the way to the end.
We could whoop it up if we wanted to, just to see how far the Sound carries to the Universe that will Echo back whatever we Dream in sweet harmony. (That’s the law of cause and effect.)
Wisdom/CIB is the Collective Wisdom of the Old Ones that walked the “hard road” before. This marks a day to honor their Wisdom passed down as our Divine Inheritance. CIB (keeb) reminds us of all the archeological treasures from the past.
By the cosmology of the Maya, to remember the Wisdom of the Old Ones, repeating their Songs and the Traditions, they are brought back to life to live within Human’s living body of Consciousness. Do you remember any words of wisdom from a beloved ancestor? My Grandma used to say, “You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.” I don’t know who said it first, but they will always be HER words, and when I remember, it’s her face I see, hands busy at crochet, wiggling her nose to adjust her glasses. Is it the same with you?
It’s not such a strange idea. The Bible is called the “living Word.”
“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. When the student is TRULY ready, the teacher will disappear.” – Tao Te Ching
To be Truly ready, we have to admit that we haven’t learned a thing. A body of knowledge or a diploma doesn’t mean a thing (except for a student loan with compounded interest). Wisdom is the application of Truth we know. It takes a Genius to learn our lessons, then apply half of the Truth we Know.
The Creator promises a Dream beyond all Human imagination. If that’s the Truth, then why not make the sky the limit? The “X” we mark on the spot can be as wild as we want it to be. No Human Beings is allowed in the circle to say it’s “impossible.”
So, Aatu from Finland has got me thinking about the Tallgrass Prairies in Kansas. This is the Haab Year of 12 Mallinali, the Grass by Aztec definition (12 Road/EB). Why not rise as the Tall Grass? No one can trample that grass back down except the Buffalo. (Click the link to see how the countryside looks over there.)
To be Wise, apply the Truth “the Creator always knows best.” We can let go and give thanks for the the Divine Witness. Following the Jaguar’s way, we can co-create a mystery we can’t imagine beyond the “X” that marks the spot. Creation is easier when we have no expectations for “how things should look.”
Let the wiles of the Evil one be a mystery too. Forget the details. Leave the riddle for game-players to figure out.
In the down below, the South, the Creator’s Dream is Right Relationship with one another and with the Natural World. Forget about being SEEN in the world. A Divine Creator offers Happiness in the here and now.
Master Number 44: The importance of the number 44 goes back thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, it was called the “abundance spiritual number” and represented the gateway to a higher state of being. Angel Number 44 is a very powerful angel number because it is made of the energies of 4 and 4. (Google) Number 44 is also referred to as the Master Healer Number. The power of any symbol is magnified by repetition, when we see it over and over again. 04/04 reflects the 44. (I published this journal at 00:04 to repeat the sign again.) Guided by the Jaguar, the nahaul of Spirit it feels like the perfect Time for it.
The Owl is the totem with the vision of the Eagle, plus the ability to see through the darkness and human illusions. The Owl is a symbol of the “mystic ferryman that holds a torch aloft to carry us to the otherside.” Some see the Owl as a Sign of Death, a good thing, when our Intention is to leave an old life behind. Heaven can be the limit of our imagination.
True Wisdom is an application of critical thinking (ie. “if this is true, then…). Our past is a treasure to remember the unconscious choices we’ve made before. The past is also a treasure for all the Love we fail to remember when all we look for is “how someone done us wrong.”
The glyph illustrates Human’s mind in its highest state of consciousness. Forgiveness is the “Key to the Kingdom.” Human’s heart is healed by forgiveness to clearly see we’re worthy of the blessing. Forgive your Self. We’ll never be perfect. In the Creator’s eyes we were more than enough from the beginning.
Remember in Memorial the the “old one” we were who bore all the blood, sweat, and tears to “live and learn” so we never forget.
Every Dream has its own life story. The first step always leads to another. May we begin with a mysterious step that’s all our own so each step will lead us to the end of a Divine Mystery.
The Guardian of this trecena is 13 Transformer/CIMI, the Sign of a Major Life Change on the scale of “life and death.”
love, in lak’ech,

Wisdom shared by Minisa Crumbo Halsey, 1 Wind/IK:
Watch the thoughts like an eagle. Upon identifying undesirable, unloving, depressive, angry, fearful, controlling, or manipulative, jealous, vengeful, or sorrowful thoughts, acknowledge and honor them. Pull the weeds of the Divine Garden. Maintenance. Aspire also to learn the content and meaning of their message and immediately, or as soon as possible, direct and return them to the great reservoir of spirit energy, where they will be purified and renewed. Release them to make their own blessing journey and return to Source, sending them on their return path with gratitude and love, on the breath as well as thought. The eyes can also direct releases, with permission, to the clouds. The breath, being the constant link with life and the Divine is ever present, able, and willing to transmute and transform into Spirit, that which is truly dead, dying or diseased . . . no longer wanted or needed. Be sure that only ones personal business is addressed. At all times be observant of others’ sacred and psychic privacy and freedom of choice.
Maintaining a respectful mien, which is increasingly built by mindful, positive choices and growing awarenesses of what and how we think, act, and intend at all times, is essential. This practice of thorough attention is a cumulative, life process and will grow more robust with practice and the seasons, so move forward and regularly provide the sweet water of loving kindness to the young Sacred Flowering Tree, and to the young skebyak, the green beings, born of the same elemental parents as ourselves. What kind of tree or shrub are you? ~ Minisa Crumbo Halsey
(Minisa shares her wisdom on the Dawn Woman’s Blog. Minisa is one of a handful of indigenous Elders who holds the wisdom of the Potawatomi language. Most of the wisdom of the Elders I know was passed down through Minisa (ie. when I say, “the Elders say”). You can learn more about her story at MinisaCrumbo.com.
THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: A VISION QUEST OF SPIRIT TO LIGHT A DIVINE WAY
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.
SOUVENIRS OF YOUR VISION QUEST JOURNEY:
Spend some time in nature if you can. Some of my most sacred souvenirs are the sticks and dirt from the place of a 4-day ritual and sacred ceremony of Spirit. Just remember the rules to Ask first and leave Mother Earth an offering of sacred exchange. The Elders taught us to leave something of our self, like a piece of hair or some spittal. All water is Holy, including the living water within. Maybe something will appear that would be worthy to save for Divine Healing in your medicine bag. Mother Earth is an Old One too. When I come across these things and remember, I can see the place where I found the treasure.
3 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Descriptions by Ian Xel Lungold, 12 Sun/AHAU, now ascended as 13 Sun/AHAU (His wisdom is preserved at MayanMajix.com. His totem was the Jaguar which inspired the “IX” in MayanMajIX.com.)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valiant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons.
Cherokee, Owl/U’GUKU’ O’JJ: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritative. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.

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. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
