Love: Self-Love ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Ix

Love: Self-love sits in the Northwest of the Love Medicine Wheel

Self-love, the number one priority of all love. Without self-love, life is a misery. The greater self-love we have is directly proportional to our happiness. Now you may be thinking, well that’s a load of twaddle, ‘I know my self-love sucks, but I love other people, which makes me happy’. To a certain extent that is true, but how clean is your love? Does your love come without attachments or expectations, or are there strings attached?

I know for myself my self-love always needs improvement, so I watch to see what underlies things I do. Am I giving a compliment, because I’m actually insecure and want someone else to tell me the same thing? Am I giving the advice that I actually need to give myself and act on? Am I doing things for others to be liked or loved. Am I reacting due to my unhealed past history? Quite often I catch myself, and in those moments if I cannot do or say whatever it is from a clean place without wanting something in return, I do not do or say it. Then there are other days where try as I might I succumb to my need, and yet others where I am oblivious to it all. Paying attention and improving incrementally in the big picture is all I can do, and that’s okay. It’s what we are here to do, heal and grow, learning to love ourselves a little more each day.

When I was growing up there was this lovely cartoon series created by New Zealand cartoonist Kim Casali. ( I remember waiting for the newspaper to see what the cartoon was that day. It is one of the few things that stuck in my memory about that time in my life. So I’m taking a leaf out of her book, sans cartoons to illuminate my thoughts about love in the upcoming blog posts. Some you may agree with some you may not, it is just my opinion, you have your own and that’s as it should be.

I encourage you to add your own in the comments sections & I will add them in.

Mayan Daykeeper Ix ~ The essence of Ix is the ability of  the spiritual realm to communicate in the physical realm. An ability to communicate in both.

Ix may manifest as an awareness of spirit
and what may be considered supernatural.

On an Ix day, you may want to be more open
to messages from the spirit world.
It is a good day to contemplate who you are
in dimensions of life other than just the material and physical.

Those born on an Ix day
have the ability to perceive the spirit within.
They can respond to this spirit
and receive it’s communication while in the physical world.

This is an exerpt from
Mayan Calendar Voice of the Galaxy by Raymond Mardyks and Stacia Alana-Leah

Your interpretation and experience is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to find your own truths and their relevance in your life. This is really important. If something resonates great, if not chuck it out. We gain nothing by ‘taking on’ others life experiences and beliefs. The juice and healing comes from within your own understanding, it is pivotal for your healing journey and manifesting what you want.
