Mayan Daykeeper Chik’chan

The essence of Chik’chan is primal nature in all it’s naturalness. Simple instinct & knowing, when being in alignment with our true nature.

When nature has a blanket of snow, tracks are really easy to see. So to if our minds are cleared of internal dialogue, our intuition is easier to hear.

Today is a good day to practice your intuition. Follow those ‘gut feelings’ and whispers from the heartspace. Intuition like any skill gets better with practice. Be gentle with yourself, you are doing the best you can in each moment.

If you have been following my blog the information below is a repeat from our last Chik’chan day Tuesday 18th April.

As with all things find your own truth. What resonates keep, what doesn’t discard.

Chik’chan’s prescence may be experienced
as a sensitivity to nature in its simplicity.
With this comes an ability to correct what has been altered from its natural state.
This is done to return to a relaxed state of being.
Your conscious awareness is then clear and uncomplicated.
Chik’chan days are good for accessing the deeper instincts of human nature.
Try doing something with your eyes closed or in the dark.
Distinguish between the fears that genuinely warn you of danger and those that complicate your life and keep you from trusting your true desires.

Those born with Chik’chan as their Daykeeper
have a sensitivity to the simplicity within all things.
They possess the ability to realign with the natural flow.
This can be done for themselves as well as for others.
They have the potential to be a healer when this ability is trusted and developed.

I chose this beautiful Pieris Japonica as today’s photo because of the way it’s new leaves come out red and then transition to green. For me it’s a wonderful metaphor for using our intuition. When starting to work with our intuition we “Flame on our intuition”. The more we practice the more it becomes part of our nature. Residing in our heart space, our 4th chakra which is represented by the colour green.


The Mayan Daykeepers are spiritual beings with an archetypal energy within cycles of the Tzol’Kin or Mayan astrology. There are 20 Daykeepers each one presenting different energies & assigned to be present on certain days of the year. Rotating in a twenty day cycle.

I have found that having an awareness of which Daykeeper is present on any particular day, informs me about the active energy present that day. In this way I have more ease, fluidity & healing in my journey.

I offer a snipit of the knowledge presented in the book Mayan Calendar Voice of the Galaxy by Raymond Mardyks and Stacia Alana-Leah. They present comprehensive information on the way the calendar works, the energetics of the Daykeepers, the iconography of each Daykeeper, the symbol of each Daykeeper, meditations with the Daykeepers, as well as your personal birth Daykeeper.
