‘Make death an ally’ hmm I have been taught this in shamanism for years, but what does that actually mean? The first and most obvious one for me is death and change. Being okay with letting things go, being willing to do my healing work to allow parts of me that no longer serve me to die. Then there’s just being around death, we fear what we do not know. If we lived as we used to caring for those that are dieing, being with our loved ones through their transition, and having our funeral rites at home. Would death not become what it actually is, a sacred rite of passage like birth. How about cultural imagery, would we fear death as much if this was the common graphic used? I think not. What does ‘Make death an ally’ mean to you?
The essence of Kimi is death of the physical body in this lifetime. Kimi invites us to look at all aspects of death. Make death an ally, rather than an unknown fear.
Happy father’s day to all the dad’s out there that celebrate. Happy remembrance day to those of us whose fathers are in spirit. May we remember the lessons from the mirror that was our father, may we forgive the imperfections & release the negative memories, may we heal from any transgressions, may we feel the love that is still present for our fathers and bask in memories that are grand and make us smile.
If you have been following my blog the information below is a repeat. Previous Kimi days this year Jan 9th, 29th, Feb 18th,, March 10th, 30th, April 19th, May 9th, 29th
Those affected by Kimi’s presence may be aware of ancestors,
both their own and those of others.
Kimi may bring to your awareness the immortal spirit
within and beyond the human body.
On Kimi days, you may choose to remember ancestors,
appreciate what has been passed on to you
and remember that a part of you lives on forever.
Those born with Kimi as their Daykeeper
are capable of clarifying the meaning and purpose of death
through discovering the gifts of humanity’s ancestors.
They respect those that have gone before them
and often give voice to those whose voices are no longer heard.
