Completion brings up a really important step that I have learnt through shamanism. Once something is complete it is not necessarily integrated. Often time is needed for integration. Hence we don’t speak about our experiences to anyone for at least 7 days, then if we do we always keep something for ourselves.
What is interesting is that more often than not there is no desire to share after 7 days. So what is it we are looking for with sharing immediately after an experience? I have found that commonly, it is to have our experience validated. The conundrum is that no two humans experience things the same way, & the power of the story tellers experience is not translatable. External validation is the name of the game in our addictive society. We have not been taught to take our experiences in, to fill and sustain us.
So we often give our power away through telling the story. Coming from the place of wanting our experience validated, we are then at the effect of others reactions. If they do not react to your story in a way that validates your experience, well like a ballon stuck with a pin you are deflated. So hold those powerful experiences close to your heart, treasure them, take them in, integrate them, and if you so choose to share, share a power story from a place of neutrality.
The essence of Ahaw is completion, culmination, realization, integration.
Tomorrow we start a new cycle. Imix is back to start us off.
If you have been following my blog the information below is a repeat. Previous Ahaw days this year Jan 3rd, 23rd, Feb 12th, March 4th, 24th, April 13th, May 3rd, 23rd, June 12th
Ahaw may be experienced as a sense of completion.
This experience may include understanding
the causes and effects that led to this moment.
Ahaw offers the awareness of how completion
relates to the entire cycle of life.
Ahaw’s days are opportunities to see situations
as they fit into the bigger picture.
It is a good time to consider the necessity of certain events
and their involvement in something larger than their immediate effects.
People born on a Ahaw day are sensitive to the cycles of time
and respect the importance of being timely.
They naturally accept that everything plays a part
in something greater than itself.
