Musings

I started this blog working with The Twenty Mayan Daykeepers exclusively, then went on to introduce Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count, which also has twenty Numbers. Then we looked at how these two interconnected. Now we start a new cycle of The Twenty Great Teachers of Life. My intent is that you find it useful and entertaining. That it may be of use to you on your healing journey 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 three twenty day cycles, or skip it and go right to today’s 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.

Hyemeyohsts Storm’s EARTH COUNT 
This is the background for the Earth Count’s 20 Numbers from his book Lightningbolt. It is for sale through many avenues, just Google it.

The Zero
The Medicine Wheel is the shape of the Zero. TheZero is the symbol and fact of creation. TheZero Chiefs say that the Zero is not nothing, but is instead Everything.
~ All of Creation’s Children were designed and born from the Sacred Zero, and exist as part of the Zero. All of creation’s children exist as Numbers within the Medicine Wheel. This is the Children’s Count or Earth Count.
~ In the beginning was WahKahn. She is the Creatures Mother and the Great Zero, the Womb that births all existence.
~ Within instantaneous being was born SsKwan. He is the Creator Father, and is the Dividing of the Zero.
~ Creation, the Zero, is perfectly balanced. The Zero is Female and Male and has designed and birthed all of Life.

The TWENTY GREAT TEACHERS of LIFE
We learn by experience in life, anyone that has watched a child can see this happening. As adults with the basic skills for living, we may forget that we still learn this way. The Twenty Great Teachers of Life offer us the opportunity to continue our learning/healing to become more, and more authentic, and have more resources at our disposal. The more we learn/heal the less ‘at the effect’ of others and life we are. With this authenticity, comes freedom. The freedom to just be who we are, no filters, no masks.

 

Honesty as a Teacher ~ Sacred Dream of Life ~ Mayan Daykeeper Manik

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.

7 – The Seventh Great Teacher is Honesty
Honesty teaches us about the integrity of the dream and respect for the dreamtime

So the ‘Dream and Dreamtime’ is not referring to your sleeping dreams, but rather your dream of life. What you are creating as a life in this lifetime. How honest you are with yourself directly affects what you are creating.

How honest are you with yourself?
How honest are you with others?
How does this affect your life?
Looking at past history how has honesty or dishonesty with yourself or others, shaped what you manifested in the future?
How important do you think honesty with yourself is, in creating your life?

7 – The Seven ~ The SEVEN is the Number of the DREAM OF LIFE
The SEVEN is the Number of the DREAM OF LIFE, for all things that are made within Beauty, or that are Broken and thrown away. We look into our Past and learn of what we have built.
Come, Children, and Build your World Dance.
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

7 – Mayan Daykeeper Manik ~ Manik’s essence is the connections between actions in the now affecting the future. The evolution & growth towards something greater.

Manik’s presence may be experienced as a connection to the future.
You may feel that what you are involved in
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
before realizing the outcome of your involvement and contribution.

Those born on a Manik day may experience
a sense of being important for the future,
being ahead of their time
or carrying something for future generations.

Why do you think your spirit gets pleasure from sex?
Can sex alone be a spiritual experience?

6 – The Six – The Six is called SPIRIT-SPIRIT
SIX is the number for Experiencing the Presence of Life. When the human children of Mother Earth are conscious and Present with the Spirit of Life they are Experiencing the Six.
The SIX is called SPIRIT-SPIRIT because all things Born into Substance are Born from Spirit. This we humans learn as we Experience Life. Six directions make up all Spheres: East, West, South, North, Zenith, and Nadir. (Zenith: The As Above, Nadir: The So Below)
Come, Children, find your dance as Spirits.
Experience your Existence. How will you Choose to See your Life?
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

6 – 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.

5 – Mayan Daykeeper Chik’chan ~ The essence of Chik’chan is primal nature in all it’s naturalness. Simple instinct & knowing, when being in alignment with our true nature.

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.
This can be done for themselves as well as for others.
They have the potential to be a healer when this ability is trusted and developed.

4- 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.

(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

3 – 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.

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.

Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count

The Zero
The Medicine Wheel is the shape of the Zero. TheZero is the symbol and fact of creation. TheZero Chiefs say that the Zero is not nothing, but is instead Everything.
~ All of Creation’s Children were designed and born from the Sacred Zero, and exist as part of the Zero. All of creation’s children exist as Numbers within the Medicine Wheel. This is the Children’s Count or Earth Count.
~ In the beginning was WahKahn. She is the Creatures Mother and the Great Zero, the Womb that births all existence.
~ Within instantaneous being was born SsKwan. He is the Creator Father, and is the Dividing of the Zero.
~ Creation, the Zero, is perfectly balanced. The Zero is Female and Male and has designed and birthed all of Life.

1 – The One ~ ONE is the SUN
The FirstBorn from the Sacred Zero – the Marriage of WahKahn, the Creatures Mother, and SsKwan, the Creator Father – was One.
~ The East is the dancer called the Sun.

1- 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.

20 – The Great Teacher of Patience
Patience teaches us about tolerance of the differences

If you need to bring in more patience, move to an island! Living on an island you either gain patience, are cranky or you move. The first thing one notices is the pace, the pace here is slower. One of the ways one can tell a visitor or new islander is by their pace. They have a faster pace, expect things faster, can’t believe we deal with ferries and contractors that are so busy, it leaves your timing, at their discretion. I was this person, I had no patience when I arrived, zero, zip, none.  Now when I leave the island I can’t wait to get back. One of the reasons, pace, which in retrospect is quite amusing.

One of the biggest teachers of patience is the ferry. Ferries are slow, one has to wait in line for it to arrive, it may be on time it may not. Then loading is slow, crossing is slow, unloading is slow, and waiting to get back on to go home is slow yet again. The amount of practice opportunities are immense, and the ferries alone was a major factor in me being able to  slow down, I had no choice, I was dependent upon them and had no influence over them, so what to do? Accept and have patience.

Our little island is very tolerant of differences, yes we have patience for the most part, but we also engage with more people we know on a daily basis than in a city. It’s much easier to blow up at someone in a city and walk away than on an island. We live with each other, we depend on each other, we need to get along. So just like most of our moms taught us, we learn to share, to make up, to forgive, to be okay with other peoples differences. Gabriolan’s are an eccentric bunch and proud of it, and most of us I imagine have developed patience with the side effect being we not only tolerate people’s differences, we revel in it.

20 – The Twenty ~ TWENTY is COMPLETION
This is the Return to the Great Zero where all things are Born, The Return to WahKahn and SsKwan.
Come, children of becoming where is your Foundation?
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

20 – 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.

The Teacher of Love ~ Pure Science ~ Mayan Daykeeper Kawak

19 – The Great Teacher of Love
Love teaches us about respect for the enemy without

Okay that sounds really bizarre and not loving, so what the heck! This refers to folks that push our buttons or are tyrants to us in some way, irritators, manipulators, tormentors, melancholics, dictators – folks that throw us off our center. Love teaches you to respect those that push your buttons. If you can actually love an enemy outside of you, you can love your dark sides. Can you love those that don’t love you or are your tyrants?

This may still sound weird, but we are always at choice. For example I have this situation right now with one person who wants to force me to do something that goes against my principles. First she tried being manipulative, when that didn’t work she has gone to dictatorial … ‘That’s what has to be done, so that’s the way it is’. Now if you have been reading my blog, you know this is exactly the kind of situation that makes me want to cave in to her, as this is the pattern I ran with my mother. The situation is amplified as this particular person can rip away one of my fundamental needs. So what am I going to do? I have been grumbling and groaning, swearing and blaming, but all of that is only about one thing, my fear of confrontation, fear of what she can do to me if I don’t comply, fear of not honouring myself. The first two I can deal with, the latter I can’t, so I know what I have to do, it is just a matter of pushing through my fear. Aaaah I hate that, but I know I can do it, so do it I will. In reality she probably will do nothing as that’s what bully’s do, they prey on the weak, until the weak are strong, then they back down.

The point of this story is I am at choice. I can continue to allow her to tyrant me, or I can choose to not allow that. This situation is an opportunity to heal another piece of my history, my patterns, in the end she is actually helping me, Creating a situation where I have  to choose to deal with some of my stuff or not. In this moment I am not feeling loving, trust me, however once I have stood up to her, forgiven myself and her, I may get there. If I do, I stand a better chance of healing the shame and blame I heap upon myself, regarding my dark side, and that is a gift.

We learn and grow in relationship and that’s where love resides.

What relationships with love do you have?
What have you learnt?
What is being presented for you to heal?

19 – The Nineteen ~ NINETEEN is  the Sphere known as PURE SCIENCE
Pure Science is both Goddess and God. Their presence is the Design of all Existence, and the Sacred Mathematics of WahKahn and SsKwan.
The Medicine Wheel, the Sacred Earth Count, and all subsequent Wheels, are mirrors of the magnificent Design of Continuation that has been created by Pure Science.
Come children – look into the Mirror of the Medicine Wheel and discover the Infinite.
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

19 – 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.

18 – The Great Teacher of Seeking
Seeking teaches us about refinement of character

Are you willing to let go of who you think you are, to seek who you really are?

That’s it in a nutshell. Who I was at the start of my seeking for the answers to who I am, why am I here, is a person that I no longer know. I have changed so much that folks from back then would not recognize me and I’m not talking about physically. Who I thought I was at various times in my life have often been so far from the truth that it was humorous. I remember one time in class, we were learning about parts of our behavioural characteristics, to gain a greater understanding of how we ticked. There were 4 different categories, of which in general each of us would have 2 that were dominant. After the teaching we all got to study them and then share with the group what we thought we were. When it came to my turn and I stated my emphatic truth of who I believed myself to be, the class literally roared with laughter. I was stunned, confused, what did they think was so funny? Turned out that how I perceived myself at that time had absolutely no basis in reality, I was actually the exact opposite of my belief of who I was. They were absolutely right, and uncovering this fantasy I had created, opened the door to so many other aspects of myself and my life that previously had not made sense to me. Much healing was done, and I am now who I thought I was back then.

Seeking the truth of who you really are, refines your character, one little bit at a time.

18 – The Eighteen ~ EIGHTEEN is the Number for the Sphere of the Shee-nah-meeah, the Balancers of Existence.
Within all Creation, the Eighteen is about JUSTICE. Who will claim to understand Balance? Who will test the action of Time? Justice is the Shee-nah-meeah.
Come children and Remember you were all Born Before. Make your dance, in this your Present, the dance of Honor that you will be proud of within Great Time.
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

The Shee-nah-meeah are the keepers of our books of life, our Akashic records.

18 – 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.

The Teacher of Need ~ The Kachinas ~ Mayan Daykeeper Kaban

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.

17 – The Great Teacher of Need
Need teaches us about survival adaptability

Well this one seems straight forward. This refers to need, in the light. If we are expecting someone else to fill our needs this is codependency not survival adaptability. That said, this precludes asking for help when that is the best course of action, not done out of co-dependency. This is called interdependency, when we help one another and there is an energy exchange. Adaptability is also flexibility, flexibility is one of the most successful strategies for survival, but also for thriving.

I am not that thrilled by formal exercise, it has always been a challenge for me. Part of my healing journey in recovery, was a requirement of doing exercise every day. I found that if I did it in the morning, then it got done, with the least amount of resistance. In one of my check up sessions with my teacher, I proudly told her this strategy. ‘Great’ she said, ‘Now you’re not allowed to do it in the morning’. I protested, she made the point, that life’s not like that, to attain the discipline to do it, you need to be flexible enough  to do it anytime, otherwise any little thing can throw you off, and your exercise will fall by the wayside. As irritating as I found this, it was a great lesson. If we cannot be flexible it inhibits growth, change, movement, survival.

Another example of survival adaptability is happening right now in our coral reefs. Stag horn corals, one of the main reef builders in the Pacific and Indian oceans, cannot survive the increased temperatures and acidity of our oceans. Scientists have found that they are cross breeding with other corals that can handle these conditions.

17 – The Seventeen ~ SEVENTEEN is the Number for the Sphere of  the KACHINAS
The Kachinas are the powers that form all Symbols, Dreams and Images.
Come, Children, and place your Painted Masks of the Natural World, your dreams, your dread, your drama, and your healing upon your face. Come, adults, remove the Masks of your culture from your face and Learn.
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

17 – 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.

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.

16 – The Great Teacher of Loneliness
Loneliness teaches us about mastery of power

As we heal and grow, quite often we loose friends and family, as commonalities drop away and the relationships that no longer serve us dissolve. We may find that our circle diminishes in size as we heal and change. Can we stay true to our spirit’s calling and honour the path that serves us the most?

Loneliness when alone is tolerable, loneliness when in relationship and I have abandoned myself is not.

What has the teacher of loneliness taught you?
Are you lonely on your own?
Are you lonely in relationship?
Are you lonely in a crowd?
Can you experience being alone and not being lonely?
Do you like who you’re with, in the quiet moments when you have only yourself for company?

The Great Teachers are always Present with Life. They encourage all people to Remember that Life is Holy. Come, dancers, and show Greatness to your Children. Teach them of our Lives.
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

16 – 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 Teacher of Defeat ~ Collective Consciousness of all Humans ~ Mayan Daykeeper Men

Your interpretation and experience of this teacher is your own.

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.

15 – The Great Teacher of Defeat
Defeat teaches us about self-discipline

So we all have defeats in life, that’s normal, it’s how we handle defeat that makes all the difference in our ability to move forward, to do something different, to learn & grow. I’m going to use addiction again as it’s what I know the most intimately. There is this false notion that addicts are weak ……. ‘Why don’t they just say no, why don’t they just use some self control, why don’t they use their willpower?’ All crap, addicts do all these things regularly, it is their constant battleground, along with the teacher of defeat? Time and time again we see addicts ‘fall of the wagon, relapse’, this is also seen as weak, yet if you are learning to ride a bike for example, there are moments when you absolutely get it, and then you fall. Do we see this as weak? No we see it as a learning curve. Sobriety is no different. How quickly we learn, depends on many factors, but one is how we handle these defeats. Do we beat ourselves up, or accept that we relapsed, forgive ourselves, look for the triggers and situations that were present when we relapsed, learn from that and try again. Trust me the latter although another learning curve to attain, is dramatically more effective. How about learning to drive, school, university, saying no to sugar, eating healthily, exercising regularly, being kind to yourself, I imagine many of us have had defeats in these areas.

How do you handle defeat?
Are some defeats easier than others?
Why?

15 – 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.

of something larger than themselves,
something that involves the work and input of many people.

The Teacher of Fear ~ Sweet Medicine ~ Mayan Daykeeper Ix

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.

14 – The Teacher of Fear
Fear teaches us about the unknown

Fear is a part of life, it warns us of danger, but it can also inhibit growth and stop us from living fully. When fear is no longer a tool to keep us safe, but rather the driving principle behind something, well we can do all kinds of things we normally would not do, and we can become stuck and unable to move forward. The tricky part in our healing journey is recognizing what the fear is, sometimes we cannot see it ourselves. This is where engaging with another person that will hold a space for your healing work, quite often will help you flush it out, so you can then address it. When we push through our fear into the unknown, empowerment occurs.

Now fear is a tricky thing. Once I jumped off a 30 foot cliff into a lake, I was afraid to jump, but behind that was my attachment to my mate at the time. I wanted to look courageous to his friends that I had just met. So because I was not addressing the fear that I should have been …. being myself no matter who I had just met, I did something that I was afraid of, and let me tell you I hated it. I pushed through a fear, but there was  no empowerment there. The empowerment would have come if I had not jumped.

I allowed my fear of feeling to keep me trapped in addiction and in relationships that didn’t work anymore. I allowed my fear of not having enough money keep me in jobs that were destroying my body and soul. When I pushed through those fears, wow it was huge, I felt like Wonder Woman. Any time I allow fear to control me, I loose power and self esteem, as now I know how to push through fear, and that staying stuck in the fear will be worse than the unknown. Now there is one area of my life where I have unaddressed fear, I am aware of it, and writing this blog has put it front and centre for me. Dang! What I am doing with it is addressing it slowly, it is a big one, and I’m doing the best I can right now. That said, more often than not the ‘power moments’ that I have had in my life, have one thing in common, I pushed through fear.

Where is fear keeping you stuck?
Where have you pushed through fear?
What did you learn from each?

The Teacher of Death ~ White Buffalo Woman ~ Mayan Daykeeper Ben

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.

13 – The Great Teacher of Death
Death teaches us about magical transformation

Death and change, death as an ally, death, death, death. Why do we have such a charge around death? In western cultures I surmise that it is lack of exposure. We rarely discuss it, and if we do it’s in hushed tones. We rarely see actual dead bodies, and more often than not if we do, it’s in a funeral home where the body has been pumped full of chemicals and made up to imitate life. Television and movies shows us death, but there they do it to trigger fear in us for the most part, and it’s not a real representation of common death at all. We even give death fake names….passed on, passed over, passed away, left us, gone to heaven, gone to be with Jesus, gone to the great (Insert your belief) in the sky, no longer with us, popped his/her/their clogs, kicked the bucked, shuffled off this mortal coil, carked it, pegged out, pushing up the daisies, at peace, at rest, belly up, beyond the veil, beyond the grave, bite the dust, cashed in their chips, bite the big one, bought the farm, come to a sticky end, crossed the Jordan, counting worms, croaked, departed this life, well it goes on and on, we are very creative when it comes to talking about death in a round about way. So why? My guess it is because it is the great unknown, most people do not have substantial information of what really happens, so we cling to whatever works for us to not make it so scary.

My experiences with The Death Cafe (Which on Gabriola will start up again at our library this fall) have shown me that, the more people talk about death and dying, the less charge there is about it. Unbelievably the most common thing to hear at our Death Cafes is laughter. The more exposure we have to actual dead bodies the less fear there is. It is a transition just like birth, we are just birthing into another realm. (Those of you with no belief in the spirit realm, well just ignore this part) Just like birth it is a magical experience. The sadness that comes with death is only present in those left behind, and only if there is unresolved attachment. If there is no unresolved attachment we have no sadness, our sadness is all about us, not the person or animal buddy that has died.

More on death and dying

So can we get to the point where we see death as a magical transformation? From my and other people’s experiences yes, yes we can. When we do, the charge around death goes away. We can then commune with our friends and ancestors in a different way. They are now free of their egoic selves (if they were human) and the relationship can sometimes change dramatically. I have a much better relationship with my dad now, than I did in life, doesn’t mean I don’t still wish I could hug him.

I leave you with Monty Python who has no problem talking about death, humour is a great for grounding tool. The parrot sketch, enjoy!

……. ‘It’s stone dead. This parrot is no more! It’s ceased to be! It’s run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This is a late parrot! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! It’s curled up its tootsies and shuffled off this mortal coil! This is an ex-parrot!’

13 – 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

12 – The Twelfth Great Teacher is Spirit
Spirit teaches us about form and formlessness

So we’re talking about all types of spirit, your own and others. We learn by being a spirit in human form and we learn from our connections with the spirit realm and for some people ‘the great spirit’/God/universal intelligence/fill in your own belief should you have one. We learn by both spirit’s presence and absence. When we are connected to spirit we tap into a much bigger realm than the physical realm that we can see. The way you connect to spirit, is as individual as you are. There is no one right way, the way you connect with spirit is the right way for you at this time. There are also many different ways to connect with spirit and I find that some are easier for me than others.

A question I am regularly asked is do I or have I done ayahuasca, peyote, marajuana or other mind expanding drugs to make a connection with spirit. No I have not, while it is said that evidence has shown great benefit for releasing addiction for example using ayahuasca and  ibogaine, these are extreme circumstances. I believe that yes these mind altering chemicals can connect us to other spiritual realms but are not necessary to connecting with spiritual realms. From what I have read they were also not handed out willy nilly to folks for recreation use, but rather for specific ceremonial rites. Have faith in yourself you are actually all you need to connect with spirit.

In addition I have found that the more I practise the greater my ability to connect with spirit becomes. When we cut ourselves off from life, our ability to connect with spirit is one of the casualties. We cannot expect to have an awareness of subtle vibrations when we are not present in our bodies.Great Teachers, Spirit, mayan, daykeeper, eb, spirit, awareness, angel, spirit guide, expanded, healingthroughceremony.com, michele fire-river heart

Our bodies are our antennas, the more energy our bodies have the greater our ability to transmit and receive, we are electro-magnetic beings after all.

What is your relationship to your spirit?
What have you learnt by being connected to spirit?
What have you learnt when not connected to spirit?
What do you want to learn from spirit?

The Teacher of Raw Power ~ Sacred Stars ~ Mayan Daykeeper Cheun

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.

11 – The Eleventh Great Teacher is Raw Power
Raw Power is the greatest amount of power you can tap in to. You can use it to destroy or create. Physical excellence is a determining factor of how much raw power you have access to, as the healthier you are, the more energetic resources you have. However even if you are ill, you still have raw power that you can access.

So what the heck does that mean anyway, there was no dictionary definition for raw power that I could find. There is one person on this island who has such outstanding physical strength above the norm, that it is one of the first things I hear about him. This is not attained by weight training, it is who he is naturally. There is another person I know that is deemed ‘a powerful person’ and it has nothing at all to do with the physical ability of strength. They are both examples of raw power. Now put those two types of raw power together and whoa mama, that is a person who has raw power that will ooze out of their pores to an extent that everyone would notice.

Now imagine if you will, a 5′ 3″ middle aged average woman, wielding only a pink umbrella, going head to head with a 6′ male gang leader in order to protect a young man being burned with cigarettes on the ground. Rationally the outcome would not be good, however it was. Why would that gang leader with 4 of his minions with him, back down, when confronted by this little woman who he could squish like a bug, or order her squished. Well many reasons, but the most important was her raw power. It was not her physicality that had any sway, what he analyzed was the energy presented, and deemed it to be a risk not worth taking.

Different scenario, a person is the only survivor of a small plane crash in the mountains great teachers, raw power, mayan, daykeeper, Cheun, creativity, art, joy, interplay, craftspeople, delight, union, stars, stardust, Pixabay.com, HEALINGthroughCEREMONY.com, Michele Fire-River Heartin winter. Yet against all odds makes it to a town and survives. Why? Raw power.

Next, a person born into terrible circumstances, nothing going for them. Makes a success out of their life, creating what they imagined when they had nothing ….. raw power.

Ghandi, Mandela, Dr. Vandana Shiva ……. raw power!

I’m using extreme examples to make a point, we all have raw power and we don’t need to be in extreme situations to use it. We can use it to create our world or destroy it, to defend ourselves or others, we use it in our dreaming and intending.

How do you feel about your own or others raw power?
Do you embrace it or fear it?
What have you used it for?
What are you using it for?
What could you use it for?

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.

10 – The Tenth Great Teacher is Confrontation
Confrontation teaches us the measure of self-worth

Confrontation a biggie I suspect for many of us, it certainly is for me. Well what does it really do for us anyway, why bother, things could get messy, I don’t like messy?

Confrontation is about truth, yours and others.  It shows us how willing we are to stand by our beliefs, protect ourselves and others, how much courage we have, how well we communicate. It can be about working with the tool of confrontation to figure out a new way of doing things, teach us about new perspectives, and how to communicate effectively and authentically even when challenged. It can teach us about speaking our truth without attacking others. It teaches us to stay grounded even in reactionary situations.

For me I have a long history of denying my truth in confrontation. My mom had major control issues (Stemming out of her childhood experiences, she was doing the best she could), so when I was told something about myself that I knew wasn’t true, I would confront her with my truth, she would then inform me of my mistake and that her truth about me was the truth, I would again speak my truth to have it yet again shot down. These confrontations would continue until I caved and just let her have her way. This pattern of behaviour of mine to back down when confronted stayed with me through most of my marriage (Yes married a partner just like mom), until I healed enough to stand in my truth. Once that happened the marriage ended, I had learnt what I needed to in the relationship, and a big part of that was being authentic when in confrontation. However confrontation although I could do it, now more often than not came in the form of anger, and often just not being very present at all. It was the way I chose to be able to speak my truth, but that’s not very effective, we are not heard when we make a point in anger. I then went on to learn and practice confrontation from a balanced, neutral place, which is still an edge for me, but I can do it more often than not.

With neutrality came the awareness of when confrontation is important. Can we confront others in a way that they can hear, speak their language, and discern if it’s even worthwhile. As with all our lessons, we get what we are able to handle. So now I have someone in my life who against all physical evidence will argue the contrary, I have learnt to let it go, there is no point to confrontation. I am almost okay with this, when I am totally okay with it I wonder will I have graduated from confrontation class?

What has confrontation taught you? Are you unhappy, and prefer to remain that way rather than confront the cause? Are there particular people or issues you will not confront? How do you confront? What do the answers to these questions teach you about yourself?

10 – The Ten ~ TEN is the Number for PURE INTELLECT and MEASURE.
Creation gave humans the power of Reason and Self Choice. Ten is also the number of the humans’ HIGHER SELF, their Sacred Twin, what can give greater measure than this Spirit-knowing?
Come, Children, have you met your Self and Know Existence?
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

10 – 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.

The Teacher of Victory ~ Moon & Movement ~ Mayan Daykeeper Muluk

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.

9 – The Ninth Great Teacher is Victory.
Victory teaches us respect for the enemy within.

Victory often associated with external competition, is also a victory of another kind. A victory over something within ourselves that we have healed, overcome, released. Victory shifts my paradigm of what is possible.

Now why does victory teach us respect for the enemy within. ‘Enemy within’, sounds a bit aggressive, but let’s look at the context of why that word is used, and then reframe it.
Here are a few of my examples (yours may be different, even working with the same energies):
~ Sobriety versus the enemy of escapism
~ Abundance versus the enemy of self pity
~ Accomplishment versus the enemy of a defeatist attitude
~ Empowerment versus the enemy of shame and blame
~ Acceptance versus the enemy of dissatisfaction
~ Not being at ‘the effect’ of others versus the enemy of ‘it’s all about me’
~ Engaging activity versus the enemy of lethargy
~ A happy disposition versus the enemy of internal dialogue indulgence
~ Feeling versus the enemy of hiding
~ Happiness now versus the enemy of living in the past or future
~ Intimacy versus the enemy of fear of betrayal
~ Confrontation versus the enemy of suppression of feelings
~ Self acceptance versus the enemy of ‘I can do better’
~ I am enough versus the enemy of I need more healing
~ Healthy eating versus the enemy of emotional eating.
~ Graciousness versus the enemy of dismissing success
~ The joy of success versus the enemy of moving on to the next thing
~ Satisfaction versus the enemy of futurizing
~ Positive measure of self worth versus the enemy of picking at what I could have done better

So I don’t know about you, but as soon as I hear enemy, my negative warrior self goes into battle mode. Heeeyaaa Sheera leaps out sword blazing. Trouble is she will slice and dice me, which I have found out is pretty unpleasant and not successful. So I prefer to think of these energies as strategies I use/used to survive past experiences. Or sometimes it was what was mirrored to me as a child, and I took it on, as my own way of being. When one of them gets my attention on a regular basis, I know I am ready to let that strategy or pattern of behaviour go. If I choose to treat myself kindly, coaching myself with compassion, things go much better, and victory is assured without needing to go to the trauma ward. If it is something that is overwhelming to you,  professional help may be prudent, in whatever form works for you.

So may all your negative warrior selves stay asleep, and your positive warrior selves be on point, gently coaching you through your day. Have an empowered, healing day.

9 – The Nine ~ NINE is the Number for the MOON, and for MOVEMENT.
The moon moves the tides of the earth, the tidal waters & the blood within all things.
Come, Children, and dance in the Moonlight
(Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

9 – 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.
