4 Jaguar / IX – Dawning of Creation: Day 4 of 13

THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN: DREAMING A NEW WORLD

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 is the Intention of Stability. Two completed waves of thought (dark and light), define a pattern and rhythm, propelled by a force of Intention. The pillars to creation are established from the “heart” of the beginning. The  Sound of our thoughts is louder than any words we speak.

Tone 4 generates the common thoughts to complete the picture of our dream. Zero is the best place to start. We can imagine what the Divine One would choose for us, and follow the answer within. On Tone 4 we set the “rules of our game” to uphold a Divine Frame of Mind.

Jaguar/IX (“ee sh”), holds the Element of Air in the direction of the North. IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine that makes a Divine Discernment from a Perspective of Compassionate Love. IX coincidentally (?) is the Latin symbol for 9. 9 represents the whole investment human offers to create the Higher One (10). IX reflects the Truth of our Highest Aspirations.

Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit, the shape-shifter and shaman that leads us on a journey to the East. The Jaguar moves invisibly, leaving only footprints behind, and guards the temples and sacred sites from the shadows. To follow, look down at your feet and the invisible footprints. If there is any fear along the way, look down and remember – they are still there. You might be surprised what a Jaguar can lead you through.

4 Jaguar/IX is here and now to help us build on our own foundation of Faith in what we Know, and how we can Apply the Truth to find an even better way (white day sign = dark/application).

3 Reed/BEN – Another Eclipse in Time

Thank you to Tammy for sharing the images from her Wesak Offering! 

May we remember the Highest Dreams we held from a Life Before, at the Lunar Eclipse. May we claim the Answer to a prayer we made for the Highest  Watermark of Spirit. Thank you, Tammy, 13 Jaguar/IX!

A Wesak offering to the rivers that run through Oregon.

“I was able to go to a special place on Friday, June 4,  10 Manik  10 AM ceremony included an intention to share in your celebration of Wesak.

A deer ran in front of us, leading  our way to the “spot”  …   : )”

10 Jaguar / IX – The Manifestation of the Divine Feminine

THE TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN: GIFTS OF SPIRIT

Humble thanks to our Kin, Pauline who shared the following story.

Thank you, Pauline.
Love, in lak’ech, Debra

All art emulates the condition of ritual. That is what it comes from and to that it must always return for nourishment. — T.S. Eliot
~~~~
Each dawn, millions of Tamil women create intricate, geometric, ritual-art designs called ‘kolams,’ at the thresholds of their homes, as a  tribute to Mother Earth and an offering to Goddess Lakshmi. A Tamil word that means beauty, form, play, disguise or ritual design– a kolam is anchored in the Hindu belief that householders have a karmic obligation to “feed a thousand souls.” By creating the kolam with rice flour, a woman provides food for birds, rodents, ants and other tiny life forms — greeting each day with ‘a ritual of generosity’, that blesses both the household, and the greater community. Kolams are a deliberately transient form of art. They are created anew each dawn with a combination of reverence, mathematical precision, artistic skill and spontaneity. Read on for one kolam practitioner’s deeply personal exploration of this multidimensional practice.
The Tzolk’in Date:

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

Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

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.

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 Cherokee 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.  Conducive to pray for grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters and wives day. For wisdom at 4 Balances, cunning and protection of Mother Nature. To thank the Earth for sustenance. Ix is the native cunning, enterprising, vigorous, bold and realistic.

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.

10 Jaguar / IX – Guided from Above: Day 10 of 13

THE TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN: GIFTS OF SPIRIT

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

We were changed by Truth we reached to Know on Tone 8. Through an Offering of 9 we offered our Patience to see what the Creator intended to share as the Sacred Exchange. Through a choice of Divine Intention we prepared our self for the Highest Truth we need to know, Here and Now, for every climb the rest of the way.

Tone 10 raises us to the Challenge of Manifestation. Our Human dreams always lie in the future. The challenge is always that leap of faith. We’ve been guided to maturity. We know that to see the future you only have too look down the Road. You know where you are Now, and where you’ve been. Without the patience to see what all we learned, we’ll circle back again.

Manifestation depends on meeting the challenge to claim it. It could all be another coincidence, and we’ll fall right back down again. Do you think? That’s Human’s last doubt we have to overcome.

We won’t be thinking it now for a Divine Mother who’s right on course. Her arms can steer us to a Higher Meaning for Time. It’s time to claim the Truth, if we do, we won’t forget. The Mother teaches the Truth of the Father, in ways We LOVE to remember.

Jaguar/IX is the Spirit of the Divine Feminine that knows how we Feel. She is the Divine Witness who walks in stealth. From her own shadow she guards the Light. The Jaguar is hardly seen, but for the footprints left behind. IX shares the heightened senses of a Holy Spirit within, and Knows it in Everything. Mother Earth is the Source for ALL the Life and Love Spirit can See to Know. We open our eyes with a Choice to Know.

The Jaguar is a symbol of the 7, residing at the top of the pyramid at the threshold to the Divine Sanctuary. To cross we must Humble our Self in Gratitude, the Jaguar’s “earth magic.” The Jaguar resides in the North, the place of ALL Wisdom, and the Sacred Breath. At the top of the calendar pyramid, the Offering is our Gratitude for ALL Time and every way we went that led us here. Patience is the Power of Divine Trinity when we use it to think and feel what everything means. We are born creators. If we’re Dreaming of creating a Divine Relationship, at the end  of every exchange with another Being of Light, we should step back to make sure we allowed them a place for their own course.

The Jaguar is guiding us for the Serpent/CHICCHAN who intends a higher end than we can still imagine. The Jaguar will prepare us to see it if we start counting our blessings, for every moment and step of the way. Jaguar is the Invisible Witness to Spirit, with no desire to be seen – only to Lead others to see the Higher Light at an altar. IX is a Presence of Divine Discernment and Compassionate Love. All things want to be seen. The offering of invisibility is a Divine Exchange for the Beauty a Divine Hand can make of it.

3 Jaguar / IX – Road to Tomorrow: Day 3 of 13

THE TRECENA OF ROAD/EB: THE ROAD OF DESTINY

3 Jaguar / IX

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

The Journey of Divine Spirit begins today. A New Life will begin with the very first step we take in Consciousness of the Divine End we will hold Faith to Know is True.

Every Journey follows the Higher Truth we learned before. We start from the Holy Ground of our Ascension. We Ascended on 13 Monkey/CHUEN, a state of mind that Celebrates Conscious for all the Truth we can Know to open our eyes to the Beauty of Love. First, we don’t take our material life so seriously. The point is to bring our Truth of the Light down to Earth. The Jaguar opens a Heart of Compassion where the Divine Truth will strike in the end.

We’re trying to figure out a New Life. It doesn’t make sense to reach for ways we knew before. If we keep a sense of Humor, we can be curious about the next things we do on the New Road. Truth doesn’t hurt so much when we laugh. Within the Divine Mind of the One there is the essence of Humor. Humor is essential to our Happiness. Laugher IS the best medicine for the Healing of our Human emotions.

We are guided by the Day Sign of Spirit, Jaguar/IX. The Jaguar always appears for the purpose to lead us to the Light in the East. To Live the Truth of Spirit on Earth, we follow the Jaguar’s invisible footprints. The Jaguar walks in stealth, and we follow with an Intention of Invisibility… like the footprints. The Jaguar’s destination is the Temple and all the Sacred Sites where Humans kneel in the Light. A Jaguar is the Witness hiding in the shadow of the Highest One. The Jaguar is the shape-shifter that can cross all the Dimensions of Spirit to see Truth and our Self from the “otherside.” From the “otherside” we see it was Our Own footprints that were left behind, because we had the Faith to Follow what we reached to believe was the Truth.

IX is the symbol of the Divine Feminine. “IX” defines a Mayan word as feminine gender. The Divine Feminine holds the aspects of Compassionate Love and Divine Discernment. In the Balance, the Divine Masculine shares the Light of Objective Truth (Divine Inspiration). From the Light, the Divine Feminine conceives the Highest Manifestation. Together, Light is applied to it’s Highest Meaning and Purpose. We manifest a New Life, reaching for a Higher Reason to Love. Reed/BEN opened our Heart to train our eyes on the Divine Truth Above.

9 Jaguar / IX – Winds of Change: Day 9 of 13

TRECENA OF TRANSFORMER/CIMI: HOLDING A VISION OF THE FUTURE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 raises the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. There is said to be suffering to bare for lack of insight if we fail to take this important step. There is always something more to know. Tone 9 represents the Truth of Divine Discernment.

The Number 9 symbolizes the Whole Investment of Consciousness and Faith that manifests the Higher One (10). We reached Higher Ground. We saw the Truth of Higher Power.

Without Patience we’re likely to claim the Power as our own. By Human Nature we’re stuck on the Creations we want to see in the material world for the Whole Truth. We Felt the Truth and Human wants to See the Reason we Believe.

We are guided by CIMI through the Chaos of a Major Life Change. CIMI guides the way to find our Comfort, Remembering the future that we KNOW is the Truth. We don’t have to reach  any farther than that to believe. CIMI is the Divine Comforter with the “soft hand” to tend our tears and remind us to take the Sacred Breath.

Everything that looks and feels so unfamiliar is the proof that we are all changing. We’re all coping in our own ways that are different than they were before. We tend to over-compensate or under-compensate with every major change. It depends on whether we are going with the change or resisting the change – defending a right not to change. WE ALL NEED A LITTLE TIME.

The Manifestation of Divine Justice, guided by the Year Bearer of the Haab, 10 Wind/IK, won’t happen all at once. All cycles of Transformation reach their Peak in the center of Time. The Peak of the Haab will fall 6 months from the New Year (03/31/2021) around October 1, 2021 (12 CIMI). 12 Transformer/CIMI falls in the Ascending 13th uinal of this Tzolk’in round, the Days that guide us to the Highest Light of Who we Are and a Higher Dream of Life to carry on.

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, the pure Intention of Light that sends its Love from the shadows. The Jaguar’s footprints lead to the temples and sacred sites where Human kneels to the One. The Jaguar always appears when it’s Time to follow the footprints toward the East, to the Light of Divine Inspiration. The Jaguar has the heightened Sense to Be Invisible. IX is the symbol of the Divine Feminine, the aspects of Discernment and Compassionate Love. The Divine Masculine is the Sun’s Light that shares the pure Light of Inspiration. The Divine Feminine conceives the Highest Ends of Love as the Meaning and Purpose for the Creation.

Jaguar/IX holds the Consciousness of the Fire that burns in the Heart of every Mother. IX knows the Love of Mother Earth, and sees her as the Source of every Blessing. The Jaguar’s “earth magic” to cross the threshold into the realm of a Divine Sanctuary is Gratitude. The Jaguar guards the 2nd inner room at the threshold of the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. The Jaguar is a symbol of 7, the number that symbolizes Human’s Power to create our own Reality. The Jaguar Spirit is the shaman, the shape-shifter, with the way to see every Time and Place. The Jaguar knows the Dream is Real. The Jaguar can see the Divine Ends of our Dream and will lead us there.

All we have to do is look down to see the Invisible Jaguar footprints at our feet. They will appear as visible when we cross to the other side. As long as they are invisible, we’re know we are exactly where we are meant to be, still guided by the One, leading us to the Highest End. The Jaguar/IX will guide us to the Divine Discernment that our Faith is Real in the realm Above, and Faith is just as good as believing.

2 Jaguar / IX – A Dream of Belonging: Day 2 of 13

THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Jaguar / IX

“To Be, or Not To Be?”

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 raises the Intentions of Duality. On Tone 1 we began in Unity, inspired by the Creator’s Dream of Divine Justice. We felt the Fire of the Dream that now feels out of reach. Through Creation we carry on a Divine Communion. It starts with the Creator’s Divine idea.

Tone 2 is Human’s side of  the story. We share the possibility we see from our own Time and Place. We think Divine Justice means we “should only get what we deserve.” But, that’s only BEN’s shadow, trying to be “right.” As long as Human Beings have the Right to Choose, we will face injustice in our Life. Divine Justice means that an equal Light will shine brighter in the “sum of the whole.”

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit. Holding the Element of Air, IX shares the Element of Air for Divine Discernment. IX is the symbol of the Divine Feminine holding the Gift of Compassionate Love. We are faced with a Choice. Whenever the Jaguar appears, we’re guided to a journey toward the East. The Jaguar leaves its invisible footprints on its way to the temples and the sacred altars that it guards in stealth from the shadows.

IX helps us see the Truth of Spirit and the Light that shines from the heart. The Jaguar holds the “earth magic” of Gratitude to cross the threshold of Spirit to see the Truth and the Light from Above. IX holds the Highest Senses to feel the Love of Mother Earth and Life all around. Counting our Blessings for the Beauty of our Time and Place, we will remember. We were given a Beautiful Life, Here and Now. Knowing we Belong Now, we can stop trying to be anything else.

Holding the Element of Air, the Jaguar shares the Sacred Breath that raises the faculties of Divine Discernment. Jaguar/IX gives us a Reason To Be Invisible, when the Offering allows someone else to shine. To fly like an Eagle, we were guided to Lean into the Truth. When we feel “invisible”  – not enough for anyone to even see we’re there, it means we also have Invisible Powers. We can perform Miracles when we are invisible. It’s a matter of seeing the Truth from a Divine Perspective, then applying the Light of the HIghest Truth.

8 Jaguar / IX – A Reason to Love: Day 8 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 raises the Intention of Divine Justice. We were changed in the Zenith Hour by seeing Truth from a Higher Perspective. On Tone 8 a Higher Truth is raised in Sacred Exchange for the Human offering. The Truth of Divine Justice is always the Answer to Human’s prayer.

We were designed to live in the Balance. Our Human Ego sees “what’s not fair.” Our Spirit knows that all things Balance with Time.

Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena. The Maya’s definition of the Number 8 is “pure spirit.” The Transformation that begins on Tone 8 is guided by Divine Agency. For all the effort that was invested by Human Will, a Divine Agency will employ on our behalf. Only, a Divine Agency will employ an exponential and Unseen Power of Divinity. Divine Justice is higher than Human Justice. Human limitations are covered by the Divine Provision. The Love we held by Intention was Human’s Offering of “pure spirit.”

Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit. Residing in the North, IX holds Divine Wisdom. Through the Element of Air, that relates to our thoughts, and the inner workings of the Human mind, IX can change our mind through the Truth of Divine Justice.

The Jaguar always leads a journey toward the East, the Light of Divine Truth that marks a beginning. When we look down to see where we are, the Jaguar’s footprints are the Sign that we are exactly where we’re supposed to be. The place where we are is the place “we belong now” for the “place we will be in the future.” We were given Milestones of Truth that we would remember, so we could look back and see that it was the Truth before, in that Time of synchronicity, when we DID know we were exactly where we were supposed to be. A Divine Creator who knows our thoughts, knows the “sum of the whole Truth” we haven’t seen. What was True before, is still True again, and we can Believe it’s the way things will always be.

All the Divine Truths of Spirit are Universal Laws – Truth to Infinity. 8 is the Number of Abundance and Life to Infinity. We are the Seed, just breaking out of a shell. We may feel like we’ve been pushing forward through the darkness to our very limits. But we were reaching for the Light. The Jaguar led our last Human climb.  The Intention was to walk the walk below, holding the Divine Truth Above to raise the Wisdom of Experience. On 8 Jaguar/IX, the Truth of the Experience is exalted in the Zenith Light.

1 Jaguar / IX – Vision Quest: Day 1 of 13

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX: CREATING A LIFE FROM SPIRIT

1 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13 Days…

Jaguar/IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, the aspects of Divine Discernment and Compassionate Love. IX is the Day Sign of Spirit that leads a journey toward the East and the Light of Divine Inspiration. The Jaguar guards the sacred sites and temples, and the Altar (Reed), the Guiding Light for Family and Home.

Jaguar/IX sees Mother Earth as its Heart’s companion. IX is said to hear the heartbeat of Mother Earth for its Love of EVERY Living Thing. IX has the means to connect us to the REALITY of Spirit as we make the Journey for Human to Know what our Heart just learned through an Ascension. We saw the “Light” that we ARE One and Connected as a Whole. A Truth beyond our imagination inspired us to Believe that Our Love Matters. Our Love changes things for the Whole.

A CYCLE OF DARKNESS
Human Beings of Duality have to see things more than once. We can conceive a Higher Truth that makes Sense. It’s easy enough to Believe we are capable of greater things. “Darkness” is the Experience of Truth. Truth doesn’t matter to a Human Being until we can see it for our Self. Then, Truth becomes Common Sense… the easy Choice to make.

1ST AND 2ND UINALS
The 1st uinal represents the germination of a New Seed of Consciousness. We complete 2 Human climbs of Spirit on  7 Sun/AHAU. In the Balance of the Light we are intended to Realize the Truth of a Promise, the Great Law of Creation. “As Above, So Below.” AHAU always delivers a Revelation of Light. 7 Sun/AHAU marks the destination of our Vision Quest. The 1st uinal completes the Truth of our “I Am.” In the 2nd uinal we will define Our Journey to the Light through Duality, Seeing and Feeling our way back and forth.

The Popol Vuh shares the story of the first 4 Balams (Jaguars) who fell in Love with Life on Earth. The Mother was the sole “object of their affection.” The Former and Shaper were displeased. They only fulfilled half of their intended meaning and purpose. The Balams were torn apart and recreated to serve as the Sanctuary for Living Consciousness Balancing the Love Above and Below. The Maya believe that to Remember the words, traditions, ways, and songs of those who came before, was to offer them a place to Live within. Remembering the Ascended Masters connects us to the Wisdom of their “I Am.”

Jaguar/IX leaves the invisible footprints for us to follow. IX can lead us to a Human state-of-mind that FEELS and KNOWS REAL Power Above in the world Below. The Jaguar resides in Position 14, a symbol of the 7 Above and 7 Below (). The Jaguar guards the threshold to the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. To enter requires the Jaguar’s “earth magic” of Gratitude. To know the Truth of Spirit that’s REAL, for each Jaguar step we take we will Count our Blessings in the Time and Place.

VISION QUEST: A JOURNEY OF SPIRIT
A Vision Quest is Time dedicated to the purpose of Being in Spirit. The Intention of the Jaguar/IX trecena is to Know Spirit in the Above and the Below. A Vision Quest is Time solely dedicated to the purpose of Receiving a Divine Discernment of the Highest Order. In the 1st uinal we are bringing the Truth of Who we are into clarity for the climb we must make as the New Seed, a journey back and forth from the Dark to the Light. The Dawn of our New Awakening opened the eyes of Spirit first. In the darkness, the direction to the Light will break for the Human Being who must make the climb as a Leap of Faith.

7 Jaguar / IX – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 7 of 13

THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT: GATHERING THE LIGHT

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 7 we complete the last climb of Human’s Intention. In the 20th cycle of Light we are Ascending to a Higher Truth ordered by the All-in-One. 13 Sun/AHAU stands as the Guardian of the Tzolk’in round, and the Power of Authority over our final destination from the Beginning.

On Peak Tone 7 we arrive at the top of the pyramid. Tone 7 holds the Intention of Reflection with the Power of a Promise that we could see by the Truth Above AND Below. The Great Law of Creation is marked by 7 at the center of the 13. To know the Whole Truth, we have to see Life Above as it is Reflected Below. The Truth of everything lies in the 3rd Question of Divine Possibilities. Human Faith is just as powerful as Believing. Prayers of Faith always return an Answer from Above.

On Tone 7 we hold the pinnacle view of “all that is” and “all that is not.” All that we See is the Light of Hope we trained our eyes to see, the “X” that marked the spot of Seeing the Truth Above as the Truth Below. We are measured in the balance of our Faith, how far we reached beyond what we could see with Human eyes to the end of a Promise.

Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit. The Jaguar is invisible, yet visible. The Jaguar is hardly ever seen in the wild due to the heightened senses of Life all around. The Jaguar is said to hear the heartbeat of the Mother. The Jaguar walks in stealth holding the Intention of Invisibility to guard the sacred sites and temples where Human creates the Light of an Offering. We will only see the Light at an altar when we follow the Jaguar’s footprints. It’s said that when the Jaguar appears, we’re guided to the Light in the East… the place of Divine Inspiration for New Beginnings.

7 Jaguar/IX leads us to the place where the Divine Journey begins. The Holy of Holies lies at the top of the pyramid. The Jaguar guards the threshold. Below, the altar to the Jaguar offers a way to cross with the “earth magic” of Gratitude. The Maya saw the Unseen threshold as the altar build as far as Human could climb above the canopy. At the end of the stairs that Human climbed, in the Reflection like Water, the Maya saw stairs that continued on Above. The top of the pyramid is the place for our final Leap of Faith into the Higher Truth Above.
