2 Jaguar / IX – Building an Altar of Light: Day 2 of 13



2 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 represents Duality. Human’s way of seeing things is through a comparison of one thing and another. Duality also describes the two sides of Human Consciousness. The Reed/BEN trecena gathers us into Divine Relationship as One.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, and a symbol of the Divine Feminine who holds the Power of Discernment. IX receives the Inspiration of the Divine Masculine to Discern the Meaning and Purpose. Jaguar/IX sees beyond the Divine Idea, to the Reason Why.

Today we are presented with a Choice of Creation. The most important Discernment is the Reason. As the Light of Family and Home, Reed/BEN encourages a Reason for the Whole. The Power to Manifest any Dream is Love. Love will be needed to carry it out. Love is the Light that will shine in our Darkness. And, Love will set the Tone from the Beginning that will carry through to the End. God is Love, and the Sun illustrates the Light of Love that always carries on. Love holds the passion to keep going.

Jaguar/IX leads a Journey of Spirit. It’s destination is the Altar, the Sacred Site it guards in stealth. Jaguar is the shape-shifter that is capable to travel from one dimension to another. Jaguar is Conscious of Reed’s channel of Light as a portal through which we cross into the realm of Spirit. The Jaguar leads us through it to Know the Meaning and Purpose of the Altar we build within.

8 Jaguar / IX – A Divine Purpose: Day 8 of 13



8 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 begins the phase of our Divine Transformation. The Sacred Exchange for a Movement of Love is a Transformation of Heart and Mind that’s carried out by a Divine Agency. Holding an Intention to see through the eyes of Love, changes our Consciousness of Love.

8 is the Number of “Pure Spirit.” 8 is a symbol of Infinity and Abundance. Our lives are Abundantly Blessed as we are raised to the Consciousness of Love that permeates the Whole Creation.

Our Highest Love is an experience Known only by our “Pure Spirit.” It can’t be fully understood by a mind of Reason. Love is contrary to everything our Human Ego tells us to do. Love is the Inner Strength of our Spirit. As an Intention of Spirit, Love is the Creation that makes Miracles possible.

Jaguar/Ix is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, the Heart of Compassionate Love. IX represents the “heart of the planet” as the female reproductive tract. We are born through the Heart of Love. Our Mother, Earth holds Life, evidenced by Movement. Every Human was born to a Divine Mother of Love. Each one of our lives is blessed equally by Mother Earth, from whom we are nourished, given the breath of life, and the beauty that would call our Hearts to Love. Mother Earth shares all the Resources of Creation.

1 Jaguar / IX – Journey of Spirit: Day 1 of 13


1 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13 Days…

We begin again. Tone 1 returns us to the vibration of Unity and Oneness with the Creator.

Each trecena reflects the purpose of “Light” and “Dark.” As creatures of Duality, Human comprehends through a binary process. We began a new experience of being under the “Light” of IMIX. Our first step of learning is “Inspiration.” Our Consciousness is ignited by a new perception. We only fully claim our Truth by experience. Without experience, Truth will remain a theory held by Faith.

The trecena’s of “Light” nourish our Spirit and motivate Human to move in the Intention of our New Truth. Our cycle of “Darkness” is the reality of the Human Experience. We complete a Discernment of the “Light” by a personal application of the Truth.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit. Jaguar is the shape-shifter that is capable to cross all dimensions of Time and Space, a Being of Ether. Jaguar/IX can show us how Spirit Moves in the world, by Movements of Intention. In the microcosm of our own Identity there is a Divine Relationship WITHIN our Self. Jaguar/IX can share the experience of walking as Human with the Consciousness of the Creator’s Relationship of Unconditional Love.

“IX” (eesh) is an element of the Mayan language that expresses the “feminine” aspect, like the “IX” in IMIX (ee meesh). The Divine Feminine holds the Power of Discernment, the Power to Conceive the Meaning and Purpose of Divine Inspiration (the Divine Masculine aspect). Following the footsteps of the Jaguar we will Conceive the Dream of Unconditional Love.

1st & 2nd UINALS:  A Call & Response
The first 20 days of the Tzolk’in calendar hold the energy of Number 1. The 1st Uinal marks a cycle of Divine Inspiration, and Oneness as a catalyst to Higher Consciousness. In the 260-day Human creation cycle, the 1st Uinal is the germination and taking root. We were awakened by the Creator’s Divine Inspiration. The 2nd Uinal represents the our natural Response, the Discernment of Understanding.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions and elevate our Awareness to our own Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Knowing. The Jaguar/IX trecena has two Portals on the Peak Tones 7 and Tone 9. A Portal on 7 Sun/AHAU will magnify the Light of the Creator and the Balance between Heaven and Earth. On 9 Wind/IK a Portal Magnifies the Voice of the Creator that Calls us to Live for a Higher Purpose.  

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Storm/CAUAC – generates momentum for Spiritual Growth through a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit.
  • 7 Sun/AHAU – establishes a Balance of the Above and the Below, through a Revelation of Light on Earth.
  • 8 Crocodile/IMIX – begins a Transformation through the zenith Light of All Possibility.
  • 9 Wind/IK – completes the Transformation through the Discernment of a Divine Meaning and Purpose.

7 Jaguar / IX – A Divine Gift of Ascension: Day 7 of 13


7 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

The Peak Tone 7 represents the top of the pyramid and the end to a very long climb of Spirit. Number 7 represents the Great Law of Creation, that what is manifested in one realm of Being will be Balanced in all others. This rule of correspondence defines the Balance in the Universe. It means that we can create from ANY realm. “As Above, So Below.”

Jaguar/IX is the most Spiritual of the Day Signs. IX is the Divine Feminine of Compassionate Love and Divine Discernment. The Jaguar holds the Inner Strength of Spiritual Truth, capable to stand its ground.

The Jaguar is a thing of Beauty and Loves the Beauty of Mother Earth. The Jaguar’s Gratitude for Mother Earth is the “Earth Magic” that empowers the shape-shifter that can cross the dimensions of Time and Place.

13 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13  we Ascend to a Higher Consciousness. The Wind/IK trecena held the power to change the landscape of our lives. Wind/IK holds the power to disseminate our Seeds of Intention.

13 is the number of theurgy, the promise of answered prayers lifted to the Creator through our Rituals and Sacred Ceremony. Our Sacred Ceremonies are a physical movement dedicated to Spirit, a Private Communion between our Self and the Creator. Tone 13 offers the energy to Feel this Divine Connection.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, the shape-shifter that can cross the dimensions of Time and Space.

Traditional ways of Vision Quest are offered for your consideration on the Vision Quest Ceremony page. My Intention is to share it in a worthy way that Honors the teaching of the Elders.


12 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 brings the Intention of Understanding. Tone 12 is the day we comprehend the Meaning and Purpose of our experience as Wisdom moves from the head to the heart.

The AKBAL trecena led a journey through our Dreams and the darkness of the fear that they could never come true. Connecting our Conscious to our Unconscious thoughts, AKBAL raised our Awareness to the broken dreams of Humanity.

In the darkness, our Human eyes were trained to see the Light that is always shining the way to our Divine Destiny from the Beginning to the End. Our Light is the Eternal Love of the Creator. Once we realize we are children born of a Divine Creator, we will Know a Light would always be shining our Way Home.

Jaguar/IX is the most Spiritual of the Day Signs, leaving the tracks of Light for us to follow. Jaguar is the sign of the shaman who holds the Wisdom of “Earth Magic,” said to be born of its Abiding Love and Gratitude for Mother Earth. Jaguar lives its life alone. With Mother Earth as its only constant companion, the Jaguar sees Her as the source of every Blessing. IX draws its Spiritual Strength living close to the Earth. Walking in silent stealth, Jaguar hears her Beating Heart in every living thing.

9 Flint / ETZNAB – A Manifestation of Love: Day 9 of 13


9 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Flint Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash… bringing things to a head to wipe the slate clean.”

Tone 9 holds the Peak Energy of Transformation. Through an Intention of Patience, we are guided by a gift of retrospection to see the bigger picture. Tone 9 warns that there could be suffering to bear for a lack of patience in understanding. Completion is all-important to the number 9. 9 is the all-in-one that makes up the zero, the Omega.

Flint/ETZNAB presents an unexpected Truth of something that has been hidden or covered up. Flint is said to present temptation to act out of character. Though, what is revealed is the hidden Truth. The Truth that will complete the Transformation of the Dog/OC trecena will elevate our perspective on Love.

The Flint Knife was the sacred object used to cut to the heart. Flint cuts through an illusion that stands in the way of our experience of Unconditional Love. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, symbolizing the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of hidden truth.
