Musings

I started this blog working with The Twenty Mayan Daykeepers exclusively, then went on to introduce Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count, then The Twenty Great Teachers of Life, and the interconnections between them.  Next came Creation through Imagination and now we are looking at Animal Totems. My intent is that you find it useful and entertaining and should you need assistance you have a resource in me.

In shamanism we work with medicine wheels of knowledge, which all interconnect. Laying the wheels one on top of the other, look at what’s in a direction, you will see they interconnect. That gives us more knowledge about both. For example music is emotionally evocative. Both music and emotion sit in the south of their respective medicine wheels. I use this healingthroughceremony.com, michele fire-river heart, blog knowledge by paying attention to what I play and when, for greater balance in my emotional life.

Below is some background info on the Mayan Daykeepers which will always be at the bottom of each day’s blog post.

As with all things find your own truth. What is useful to you, use. What is not discard.


THE MAYAN DAYKEEPERS
The Mayan Daykeepers are spiritual beings with an archetypal energy within cycles of the Tzol’Kin or Mayan astrology. There are 20 Daykeepers each one presenting different energies & assigned to be present on certain days of the year. Rotating in a twenty day cycle.

I have found that having an awareness of which Daykeeper is present on any particular day, informs me about the active energy present that day. In this way I have more ease, fluidity & healing in my journey.

I offer a snipit of the knowledge presented in the book Mayan Calendar Voice of the Galaxy by Raymond Mardyks and Stacia Alana-Leah. They present comprehensive information on the way the calendar works, the energetics of the Daykeepers, iconography, symbology, meditations & tables. It is for sale through many avenues, just Google it.

 

Recapitulation Totem Animal ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Muluk

Recapitulation Animal Totems sit in the North of the Animal Totem Medicine Wheel

Your Recapitulation animal helps you release your past history, wounds & adaptations. Enabling you to heal and walk in freedom, unconstrained by baggage from the past, or ways of moving in the world, that you took on, in order to survive.

Your Recapitulation Animal Totem
~ Helps you to see the truth, rather than your stories, or through your filters
~ Helps you to quiet your internal dialogue
~ Teaches you to gain wisdom
~ Helps you to respond rather than react to life
~ Helps you find hidden wounded pieces of yourself that are ready to be released
~ Illuminates pieces of your beauty & strength long forgotten
~ Supports you as you do the courageous work of healing yourself
~ Supports your journey into freedom from baggage
~ Is an ally on your healing journey, helping you to keep your internal & external emotional world clean

When we look at what else sits in the north of some other wheels what interconnections do you see?
~ Air
~ Wisdom and Knowledge
~ Animal Totems
~ Sacred Animals
~ Collective consciousness of the animals
~ Ingenuity
~ Cognition
~ Self-awareness
~ Intentionality
~ Receptive

What resonated or created an internal reaction? That tells you that there is something there that will inform you about yourself. You are at choice to investigate further or not.

When we’re in balance we Perceive the world and our experience without agenda or baggage. When Out of balance we Project onto our experience, our own dogma & past history colouring our experience of reality.

Animal totems are numerous and varied, beliefs about how many we have and what they do, are just as varied. I present what I have been taught and experienced. Trance drum journeys are a way to find your animal totems, be it just one or many. I facilitate drum journeys. Should you be interested in doing one, contact me & we’ll set up an appointment for this magickal experience.

So what are Totem Animals and why would you even want one? Animal Totems are animal spirit allies, on your journey in this lifetime. They give you advice when asked for, and answer questions you have. They can support you when you’re scared, help empower you, clarify things, show you the next step in your healing journey, walk with you as a trusted companion and more. There are 9 Animal Totems, one in the centre and 8 around your Animal Totem Medicine Wheel. Are they real animal spirits? Well I don’t think it matters one iota if they are or aren’t, what you imagine you create. Whatever you believe and experience is your truth. It is the wisdom & knowledge you get from them that matters, not whether you believe that it’s an animal spirit or a part of your own psyche.

Mayan Daykeeper Muluk ~ The essence of Muluk is the interdependence & connection between all things

Your experience of Muluk may include feeling a sense of debt,
a desire for unconditional giving or an unwillingness to give.
A day with Muluk as Daykeeper is a good time to consider
what is needed to maintain productive and agreeable relationships.
Demonstrate your appreciation and fulfill your obligations
to those that support you.

Those born on a Muluk day must rely on others to fulfill certain responsibilities.
They also need to be involved in the projects of others.
They are often most successful as team players.

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.

Otter Birth Animal Totem ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Lamat

Otter Birth Animal Totem: Jan 20 – Feb 18

~ Otters can help re-awaken your child-like curiosity and to remember that everything is interesting depending on the angle you perceive it from
~ Otter people possess magickal and intuitive abilities providing they allow them

Here’s a link to otter-world.com, which seems to be a very comprehensive site on otters. For instance did you know that there are 13 known species of otter, I didn’t. In the Salish Sea around Gabriola we have river otters not sea otters. The closest sea otter siting we’ve had was in 2014 near Victoria.

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

is leading to something bigger and better.

Manik’s day is good for preparing and being ready for what is still to come.
You may need to trust the process and wait a while longer

a sense of being important for the future,
being ahead of their time
or carrying something for future generations.

Warrior Totem Animal ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Kimi

Warrior Totem Animals sit in the East of the Animal Totem Medicine Wheel

Warrior in this context, is to be a warrior for yourself. To be engaged in the internal challenge of being the best person you can be. The ability to stand up for yourself, discipline yourself, challenge yourself, heal, forgive, have courage, determination, persistence and patience …… well you get the idea.

Your warrior animal totem

Mayan Daykeeper Kimi ~ 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.

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.

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.

Mayan Daykeeper K’an ~ K’an symbolically is the seed. The source, the catalyst for something new to come into being. Within humans it is the fire, the love, the creative energy of the heart.

K’an manifests as an apparently destructive force
that eliminates or destroys what is complete.
An example of this is a burning forest that allows for new life to begin there.
K’an is also the feeding or fueling of this new life.
A K’an day is a good day to support and encourage new ideas or plans,
though they may not yet be recognized by others
and may not be ready to be acted on.

Those born on this day may carry or reflect
the potential of future accomplishments.

Mayan Daykeeper Ak’bal ~ Ak’bal’s essence is recreation, the beginning of something due to the old & the new coming together. Every moment is created by combining something from the past with something new. 

Ak’bal manifests as a completion and the natural beginning
that immediately follows.
Ak’bal’s presence is like a mystery being revealed.
It happens only after something else, something necessary, happens first.
Ak’bal guides what and when something is revealed, as it comes to light out of the darkness or from the consciousness from the unconscious.

Ak’bal’s day is for revelations and for the next generation of truths to manifest.
Be open to new messages or information appropriate for the
immediate present or future, but not for the past.

Those who are born on an Ak’bal day are dreamers and visionaries.
They desire to bring forth something new in the natural evolution
of what is becoming outdated or complete.

Animal totems are numerous and varied, beliefs about how many we have and what they do, are just as varied. I present what I have been taught and experienced. Trance drum journeys are a way to find your animal totems, be it just one or many. I facilitate drum journeys. Should you be interested in doing one, contact me & we’ll set up an appointment for this magickal experience.

So what are Totem Animals and why would you even want one? Animal Totems are animal spirit allies, on your journey in this lifetime. They give you advice when asked for, and answer questions you have. They can support you when you’re scared, help empower you, clarify things, show you the next step in your healing journey, walk with you as a trusted companion and more. There are 9 Animal Totems, one in the centre and 8 around your Animal Totem Medicine Wheel. Are they real animal spirits? Well I don’t think it matters one iota if they are or aren’t, what you imagine you create. Whatever you believe and experience is your truth. It is the wisdom & knowledge you get from them that matters, not whether you believe that it’s an animal spirit or a part of your own psyche.

Mayan Daykeeper Ik ~ The essence of Ik is birthing through growth, literal & metaphorical.

Ik can manifest in the human experience as
impulses, actions or behaviors that seem
out of character or out of control.
Ik days provide an opportunity to
push beyond your accepted beliefs or those of society.

It is a day for revelations and the realization
that there is more that exists beyond the boundaries we create.
Expand your boundary voluntarily
and be open to new possibilities and unexpected opportunities.
Consider doing something different and unusual
for who you believe yourself to be.

Those born on an Ik day
bring influences from outside to their group or family
that stimulate growth in new directions.

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.

Centre Power Animal Totem ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Imix

Mayan Daykeeper Imix has brought us back to the beginning of a new cycle of 20 days. This cycle we will be looking at animal totems. The relevant daily information on today’s Mayan Daykeeper is below todays musings.

Animal totems are numerous and varied, beliefs about how many we have and what they do, are just as varied. I will present what I have been taught and experienced. Trance drum journeys are a way to find your animal totems, be it just one or many. I facilitate drum journeys.

So what are Totem Animals and why would you even want one? Animal Totems are animal spirit allies, on your journey in this lifetime. They give you advice when asked for, and answer questions you have. They can support you when you’re scared, help empower you, clarify things, show you the next step in your healing journey, walk with you as a trusted companion and more. There are 9 Animal Totems, one in the centre and 8 around your Animal Totem Medicine Wheel. Are they real animal spirits? Well I don’t think it matters one iota if they are or aren’t, what you imagine you create. Whatever you believe and experience is your truth. It is the wisdom & knowledge you get from them that matters, not whether you believe that it’s an animal spirit or a part of your own psyche.

CENTER POWER ANIMAL TOTEM
This is from my perspective the most important animal totem. It is the first one you get through a Trance Drum Journey and for good reason. Your centre power animal sits in the Centre of your Animal Totem Medicine Wheel, it is the animal you are most like in this lifetime and also brings you 7 of the 8 others that sit around your wheel. The exception is your Birth Totem Animal which is given and follows the same date line as traditional astrology. i.e. all Libra’s will have the same Birth Animal Totem. I will be doing all twelve in our next 20 day cycle.

Your Centre Power Animal’s skills, gifts and abilities mirror your own, whether they are present now or not. They illuminate things that are part of your naturalness. The traits of your Power Animal can sometimes be quite surprising and may not seem like you at all. Some traits may be present in you, others may have been lost during this lifetimes journey in your quest to survive. Knowing what your naturalness is, makes all the difference. Now you get to choose whether you bring them back in or not.

For example the dolphin is my centre power animal. What are dolphins like? Community minded, playful, gregarious, co-operative, inquisitive, intelligent, very good at using the breath and more. Now at the time I found my dolphin totem I was definitely not playful, gregarious, co-operative, enjoyed community or breathed in a healthy way. What the dolphin’s naturalness taught me was that to be the best most healed self I can be, I needed to bring these things into my life. I would then become more balanced and much happier. Well 13 years later, I am still improving on some aspects of these things, and may be for awhile longer. I am however, healthier and happier, and doing the best I can as the journey continues.

I choose this photo as it reminds me of a magickal moment in time when I was swimming with dolphins underneath me.

Mayan Daykeeper Imix: The essence of Imix is the beginning of a cycle. The start of one dividing into many & yet still being part of the one. Imix is the one.

Imix often manifests in human reality as the ability
to remain in the present moment without concern for the past and future.
It can be recognized as a clear link to that which lies beyond the mundane.
Imix offers the ability to transcend time
and to refrain from having time oriented desires.

On a Imix day you may want to be less structured.
Make time for yourself that is free from previous commitments and obligations.
This is an opportune day to discover from within
what you truly want and where you truly want to go in your life.
It is a day to acknowledge that which lies beyond time.

People who are born on a Imix day are often dreamers
that lack the desire to succeed in more materialistic accomplishments.
They often come up with new ideas that others bring to manifestation.

This 20 day cycle is completed today. Tomorrow brings a new cycle, what is to come? Animal Totems.

Mayan Daykeeper Ahaw ~ The essence of Ahaw is completion, culmination, realization, integration.

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.

On Sept 21st Mayan Daykeeper Imix brought us back to the beginning of a new cycle of 20 days. This cycle we are looking at creation through imagination. The relevant daily information on today’s Mayan Daykeeper is below todays musings.

We are creators of our lives, what we imagine we create.

We are looking at ‘The Twelve Imaginings’. The were given to Hyemeyohsts Storm by Estcheemah. She was a Zero Chief. Hyemeyohsts wrote these down in his book Lightningbolt. What is a Zero Chief? My understanding is the Zero chiefs were a secret group of people that keep the spiritual & healing knowledge of the Native Americans when it needed to go underground, to preserve it and keep it safe due to colonization. Now I could be wrong, but there it is, make of it what you will.

We will do an imagining a day for 2 days. On the third day I will add an imagining of my own. You are invited to add imaginings of  your own in the comments section on any day. On the 20th day of the cycle I will list all the imaginings that have been submitted. Well folks tomorrow is the 20th day, and no-one has offered an imagining of their own. Life is richer with your thoughts. Doesn’t anyone want to share? 

I imagine that connecting with the Spirit Realm is understood to be Natural (Michele’s Imagining)

I invite you to sit with this imagining, and see what it means to you.

Here’s some of what it means to me:
~ The fear & confusion around the spirit realm has dissipated
~ Greater information is being accessed by all
~ Our connection to those that have gone before us is still there & no longer a debate
~ Our future life choices are readily discernible & therefore much easier to make
~ Life is richer and full of magick

Imaginings, imagine, create, creator, spirit realm, natural,

Mayan Daykeeper Kawak ~ The essence of Kawak is immediate transformation. No heads up, sometimes a change that we don’t even notice happening, it just all of a sudden has happened.

You may experience Kawak
as an immediate shift in consciousness,
a powerful force or a loud violent noise.

On a day with Kawak as Daykeeper,
you are invited to acknowledge and respect life’s mysteries and
all that is beyond your power and control

Those born on a Kawak day
feel a part of something that is beyond normal consciousness.
Their deepest motivations often remain a mystery even to themselves.

The 12th Imagining: I imagine that I am a Self-Responsible human who will teach others to care for our Sacred Mother Earth

I invite you to sit with this imagining, and see what it means to you.

Here’s some of what it means to me:
~ I teach by example
~ I use only what I need
~ I ask if it’s okay when I take from nature & honour nature’s giveaway with a gift of some kind (tobacco, energy)
~ I am a part of nature, interconnected not dominant
~ I do what I can to take a stand on the atrocities being committed to Sacred Mother Earth. The genocide of animal, mineral, plant & a myriad of other species.
~ I work on healing/cleansing the waters of this blue planet

Mayan Daykeeper Etz’nab ~ The essence of Etz’nab is letting go. Releasing what needs to go in order to birth something new. Sometimes this will be dramatic other times gentle, either way change is the order of the day.

When present, Etz’Nab may stimulate
a powerful awakening to anger and the need for change.
It can appear as rage or the destruction of an old form.
Through sudden events and changes,
Etz’nab may provoke you to be more present in the moment.

Etz’nab days provide an opportunity to detach from
obsolete motivations and future expectations.
You may want to voluntarily arrive in the present moment.
Recognize that when someone or something outside you
appears to interrupt you by demanding your attention,
you are being invited into the moment.

Those born with Etz’nab as their Daykeeper
are people who recognize and express the need for change.
Their actions often challenge the status quo and
can create change for themselves and others.

Mayan Daykeeper Kaban ~ Kaban’s essence is the human mind, it’s processes & abilities. Plasticity, the positive & negative effects of thought, computational ability.

Kaban may be experienced as mental cleansing,
possibly mental clarity, and, often, mental overwhelm.
On a Kaban day, you may clear your mind
by watching the movement and content of your thinking
without attachment or judgement.
This will enable you to think more clearly
and focus your thoughts on a higher level of consciousness.

Those born with Kaban as their Daykeeper
tend to have unique mental abilities
with a potential to be clear thinkers.
Those talents can be used to access higher levels of consciousness
and effectively resolve conflicts and complex problems.

Here’s some of what it means to me:
~ Energy can be put into exploration & learning
~ Freedom from constantly being ‘on guard’
~ I no longer fear that my daughter might be attacked just for being herself
~ I no longer monitor where I go and who is there, I am safe
~ I no longer have to be vigilant about the masculine

Imaginings, imagine, create, creator, nonviolence, mayan, daykeeper, Kib, solitude, balance, interdependent, healingthroughceremony.com, michele fire-riverheart, safety

Mayan Daykeeper Kib ~ Kib’s essence is solitude.

You may experience Kib as the need for solitude or the desire for separation.
Being alone is often necessary to unwind
from intimate or entangled interactions with others.
Kib’s gifts are given to those that can be alone with themselves.

On a day with Kib as Daykeeper,
you may want to find time to be by yourself
or focus on what you can do by yourself alone.
It is an opportune time to separate yourself
from people and things that no longer serve your current needs.
You may feel much better after bringing certain things to a final conclusion.

People born on a Kib day often experience
their most profound revelations in solitude and usually work best alone.
Even in the presence of others
they are able to maintain an independent awareness of self.

The 10th Imagining: I imagine that all information must be questioned by me

I invite you to sit with this imagining, and see what it means to you.

Here’s some of what it means to me:
~ I am my own authority
~ I choose my paradigm of existence
~ Memorization is not understanding
~ Taking on others beliefs without question is a folly
~ When I notice that I wish to force my beliefs on others, it illuminates an area in my life that needs healing.

Mayan Daykeeper Men ~ The essence of Men, is fundamentally having the ability to envision, focus and manifest an abundant life in all aspects.

Men often manifests as a new idea or vision.
With this comes the ability to recognize a new goal or desire
and opportunities not apparent to others.
Men may visit you with a clear vision
of your potential for wealth and well-being.

On Men’s day, you can benefit by visualizing your true desires.
Be open to new ideas and unexpected insights.
Take the steps to advance your wealth and well-being.

Those born with Men as their Daykeeper
are natural producers and visionaries.
They can envision and bring together
the resources needed for the manifestation
of something larger than themselves,
something that involves the work and input of many people.

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.

I invite you to sit with this imagining, and see what it means to you.

Here’s some of what it means to me:

Mayan Daykeeper Ben ~ The essence of Ben is our connection to our ancestral lines. Ben is that feeling of family, the warm cozy one. I know that is not true for all of you, however families are created in many ways, through blood, through choice, through friendship.  In all cases you have an opportunity to learn from your interactions with your families.  Ben holds the energy of interdependent family relationships not co-dependent ones.

Ben expresses in the human experience as
the awareness of family, including both ancestors and
the future potential of the family.

On a Ben day, there may be a general focus on the family
or other dependent relationships.
You may feel more intimate with others around you.
Be careful not to engage those close to you in obsolete family patterns.

Those born with Ben as their Daykeeper
are often responsible and devoted family members.
They may assume the responsibility of being the caretaker of the family

The 8th Imagining ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Eb

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.

On Sept 21st Mayan Daykeeper Imix brought us back to the beginning of a new cycle of 20 days. This cycle we are looking at creation through imagination. The relevant daily information on today’s Mayan Daykeeper is below todays musings.

We are creators of our lives, what we imagine we create.

We are looking at ‘The Twelve Imaginings’. The were given to Hyemeyohsts Storm by Estcheemah. She was a Zero Chief. Hyemeyohsts wrote these down in his book Lightningbolt. What is a Zero Chief? My understanding is the Zero chiefs were a secret group of people that keep the spiritual & healing knowledge of the Native Americans when it needed to go underground, to preserve it and keep it safe due to colonization. Now I could be wrong, but there it is, make of it what you will.

We will do an imagining a day for 2 days. On the third day I will add an imagining of my own. You are invited to add imaginings of  your own in the comments section on any day. On the 20th day of the cycle I will list all the imaginings that have been submitted.

The 8th Imagining: I imagine that I can be my Self even in those times when I am pained by others

I invite you to sit with this imagining, and see what it means to you.

Here’s some of what it means to me:
~ I am no longer at the effect of others
~ I understand  that other peoples actions aren’t about me, even if they are aimed at me
~ I know that emotional pain is related to my own attachments & can be healed if I so choose
~ I have tools to heal the pain
~ I know from experience that if I choose to do my healing work, the emotional pain will  be negated

I have a parachute called healing tools

Mayan Daykeeper Eb ~ Eb is an energy, guardian angel/entity, spirit guide, (fill in your own belief word). An energy that helps you connect between the physical & spiritual realms.

Eb often appears as a guide or a powerful force
that assists you on your journey.
Eb may come to you from within or through someone else.
On days with Eb as a Daykeeper,
you may more easily access spiritual awareness and
expanded states of consciousness.
It is a good day to contact inner guides
or draw inspiration to attain a higher perspective on daily affairs.

Those born with Eb as their Daykeeper,
have a natural ability to attain a spiritual, expanded awareness.
When inspired they can guide other to their true path
to begin fulfilling their higher purpose

The 7th Imagining ~ I imagine that I can listen to Creation directly and that I need no interpreter

I invite you to sit with this imagining, and see what it means to you.

Here’s some of what it means to me:
~ My experience is my own
~ No one can interpret my dreams except me
~ My understanding of reality is the most important view for my healing in this lifetime
~ The world is abundant with things to discover, understand, experience
~ Others opinions only matter if they’re useful to me, in my understanding of myself, others or reality

This is not about people who are  blind, this is a metaphor

Mayan Daykeeper Cheun ~ Cheun’s essence is the imaginative blending when we create alone or together, and the enjoyment that comes from these creations.

Those who are experiencing Chuen’s presence
may feel an energetic high and
a positive sense of power in their ability
to responsibly create their reality.

On Cheun’s day, you may experience creative,
artistic desires and abilities,
an openness to play and an ability to enjoy life.
It’s a day to be a conscious co-creator and a joyful,
positive participant in the creation of life.

Those born with Chuen as their Daykeeper
may be happy-go-lucky, enjoy responsibility or
be envied by others for their good fortune.

~ We all have the opportunity to do work we’re passionate about
~ Poverty is no longer about money
~ Caring about each other is normal
~ Human happiness is the scale we use for change

Mayan Daykeeper Ok ~ The essence of Ok is the pure energy of carnal yearnings. It is also an awareness of our connection to our primordial instincts & intuitive senses.

Ok may be experienced as a heightened sensitivity to your inner feelings and desires,
as well as enhanced awareness of your environment.

Ok may express as a strong desire, a sense of loyalty
or the need to allow desire to guide your actions.
Ok’s days are good for allowing yourself to be guided by your desires and intuition,
trusting yourself and enjoying every moment.

Those born on a Ok day may be loyal, flamboyant, intuitive
and available for the true desires of the moment.
