The sacres Jaguar reoresents the Beæz energy that connects us to nature through our intuition and to the spirit world through our dreams, this energy is hosted on the organs on the left side of our body.

We recommend hanging this rug in your ritual space or wearing it over the shoulders during meditation or ceremonies or drape it over your blankets at night to call the Jaguar spirit and teachings into your dream world. The Jaguar is an endengered animal in the Anahuac (American) continent and it is the largest cat roaming these lands connecting South America with North America and influencing all cultures in its range. Part lf the problem with the USA-Mexico wall being pushed by the Trump administration is that it will isolate the northern population from the rest of the corridor. Please consider supporting the Jaguar's habitat and freedom. You can learn more at https://defenders.org/wildlife/jaguar as an example of the work being done to protect them.
