The Tzolk’in calendar has been leading us toward our own spiritual enlightenment. We’ve been given an opportunity to discover our spiritual gifts and to step into the fullness of our spiritual power. What could possibly go wrong?
As much as this empowerment is a blessing, it also presents an awesome responsibility. We risk losing everything unless we stand in our highest integrity.
THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT
7 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
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.
At Tones 6, 7, 8, and 9, we enter the most empowering days of the Star/LAMAT trecena. Tone 7 asks us to take a moral self-inventory. We are guided by Jaguar/IX, recognized as one of the most Spiritual Day Signs of the Tzolk’in.
The adage that “absolute power corrupts absolutely” is a Truth born out down through history due to the endless number of ways that power may be corrupted or abused. We MUST be vigilant to avoid the potential danger that can present itself when we’re not paying attention.
Our Human egos can lead us to believe we are better or wiser than others. Or, we may start to believe our spiritual empowerment is due wholly to our own effort.
The Truth is that every single one of us was ALREADY blessed with these spiritual gifts. The only real thing WE accomplish is to become aware of blessings that have already been given.
Our Creator WANTS us to acknowledge our SHARED divinity. We must recognize that this power is not born of ourselves, but is the evidence that we are Divine Sparks of God.
To all my relations, may we be grateful for the blessings we have been given and stand firm in our deepest humility. May we clearly recognize and resolve any entitlement we may feel and always remember that all the power we hold is the inheritance shared by Divine Spirit.
In lak’ech, I am another you
