Wisdom/CIB offers us a source of knowledge beyond that which our earthly parents were capable to provide. The Divine Spirit made an equal provision for each one of us to receive the wisdom drawn from every ancestor who walked this way before. This Spiritual Gift is real and a source of wisdom our Creator intended for us to use.
The purpose of the Star/LAMAT trecena is to complete us. 9 Wisdom/CIB marks our arrival at the peak experience of this cycle to reveal the very Truth of who we are.
THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT
9 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
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.
Our Spiritual Identity
Though we may seek guidance and direction outside of ourselves, we draw our own Truth from personal experience. As such, one of our harder Truths to realize is the understanding that our Spirits are eternal… that we continue to exist after our earthly walk is completed. This is ancient wisdom that only our ancestors have experienced firsthand – and, among the most important Truths they have to share.
The Spirits of our ancestors ARE present and they are available to share their wisdom. Even science reveals that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it transforms from one form to another. Still, our patience and perseverance is necessary for us to experience this Truth for ourselves.
Establishing our Spirit connection to our ancestors requires a meaningful investment of our time and attention. A tradition of the indigenous medicine path is to allocate 4 days to the observance of sacred ceremony. The fullness of our experience is proportionate to the time we are willing to invest.
We can make a start by acknowledging the presence of our ancestors and by offering the honor they deserve for completing their earthly journey. When we ask our ancestors to help us out, we are capable to hear their voices if we only invest the time and perseverance to listen.
To all my relations, may we seek to establish a relationship with our ancestors so we may experience the Truth of who we are… the essence of pure Spirit with a connection to all. May we remember that Star/LAMAT is offering us a way to multiply the results of our effort.
