Your interpretation and experience of this teacher is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to explore what this teacher means to you and the lessons it has brought you thus far. This is really important. We gain nothing by ‘taking on’ others life experiences. The juice and healing comes from within your own paradigm, it is pivotal for your healing journey.
8 – The Eighth Great Teacher is Testing
Testing teaches us the patterns of excellence
I imagine most people would not automatically say they enjoyed being tested. Perhaps this is due to our experiences as children. We learn at a very young age about negative and positive feedback. What if we could turn this around, and just see testing as an opportunity for growth? No judgements from the ego, just assessment from a neutral place. You might imagine I live in fairy land, well to be honest I think that would be really cool …… but no. From experience I can assure you it is possible. I can’t say that I always have this reaction, but it is far more regular than I ever imagined it could be, and there was a time when I thought that it was not possible. My itty, bitty, shitty committee/monkey mind/internal dialogue/egoic natterings were firmly in the drivers seat, and there were no stops on the horizon. I dreaded tests of any kind.
What I now know is, that I was hooked into a pattern of pleasing others, and in so doing the judgement brigade was on point. There was no space for looking at myself with gentleness and support, my little child was dependent on my parents for sustaining her life. She would do whatever was necessary to maintain that support. This created a pattern of behaviour that even as an adult persisted, even though this was no longer valid. I had never healed/unlearned the pieces necessary to let this pattern of behaviour go.
Jump forward a couple of decades with years of conscious healing work done, I now quite often burst into laughter when I have been tested and not passed with flying colours. I find humour in my mistakes, and for me humour is a great grounder. Clearing the way for me to see it as the opportunity it is, an opportunity to do things differently. I wonder if scientists whose job it is to do tests regularly to find out something new, are more healed in this area than the average person. They know that failure is the norm, but persevere until they discover the correct answer. Very young children before they adapt to survive know this too, they keep trying until they walk, talk, eat, etc.. Remembering these facts has helped me quite often, when I have been back in egoic judgement in a testing situation.
With your judgement out of the way no matter where it comes from and in what form it takes, you have an opportunity for growth and excellence. Getting things wrong to get things right is just the natural way for us to learn.
So may you perceive your mistakes, as just another opportunity to learn/heal. An opportunity to practice being ok with imperfection. An opportunity to see your humanness, and may you have the satisfaction of seeing the journey of learning/healing, and be fine with the mistakes you make along the way.
8 – The Eight ~ EIGHT is the Number for All Natural Laws and THE CIRCLE OF LAW. Mother earth sculpts the substance and body of everything that lives with her Sacred and Natural laws. The Eight guides the forming of all that is within the future, and gives us a way to Reappear each day.
Come, Children, paint your Sculpted Form for your dance.

8 – Mayan Daykeeper Lamat ~ Lamat’s essence is the creative process in all forms.
Lamat’s presence may be experienced as an inner awakening.
It may be a new truth revealing itself and developing.
Lamat may be a growth spurt,
with a sudden movement or development toward success or completion.
When Lamat is the Daykeeper,
you may find that certain activities move along more quickly and easily.
These are good days for manifestation
and for reproducing what has already been done.
Those born on a Lamat day may experience
a new potential within themselves.
It is an ability that appears to be unique
or different from that of family members, friends or associates
This is an excerpt from Mayan Calendar Voice of the Galaxy by Raymond Mardyks and Stacia Alana-Leah
