Chik’chan helps you come back into balance. Staying in balance all the time, is not realistic for us humans. I believe the goal is to be in balance most of the time, & when you get out of balance be disciplined enough to use your strategies to bring yourself back into balance.
Sounds simple enough, however what I have learnt is that my ability to come back into balance is in direct relation to how out of balance I am. If I go away on a trip, which for me is quite stressful, it takes me much longer to come back into balance when I get home, than if I say use sugar for a few days. Being self aware to your own patterns & strategies is the key to success, along with gentle loving kindness to yourself. You are doing the best you can in each moment, and sometimes it doesn’t look pretty and that’s okay.
Chik’chan invites us to use nature as a balancing agent. No matter how upset I am, if I go into nature I feel better. Living on gorgeous Gabriola we all have the luxury of a few steps & we’re there. So today I invite you to go into nature consciously, be it a forest, a park or your own backyard. Note how you feel before & after, take a moment before going back into your day to absorb this feeling into your body. Just one more gift from Grandmother Earth, and I for one am grateful.
Here’s a video I found, of a day where I was stressed and decided to eat lunch at Clark’s Bay. The taping isn’t brilliant, I was learning to using a video camera back then, but it get’s the point across.
The essence of Chik’chan is primal nature in all it’s naturalness. Simple instinct & knowing, when being in alignment with our true nature.

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.
