Your interpretation and experience of these energies is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to explore what they mean to you and their relevance in your life. This is really important. 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.
This cycle I am looking at the interconnection between The Twenty Great Teachers of Life and The Earth Count. Let’s see what their interconnection has to teach us. The relevant daily information on each energy is below todays musings.
The Interconnection of Victory, the Moon and Movement ~ Looking from the perspective of victory teaching you about the enemy within (read the ninth great teacher below, so that this makes sense), what is awareness, understanding and healing, but movement. Whenever we change there is movement. The moon shows us how movement is a natural part of life, and that there is an ebb and flow to all things. Using this knowledge with awareness of your own patterns of ebb and flow, gives you an edge in your ability to heal/change a pattern. Every smoker knows trying to quit when they are not ready is fruitless. Why? They are at the wrong point in their pattern for the greatest opportunity for success. When they absolutely want to quit, this is the point in the ebb and flow of their addictive pattern where the opportunity for success is greatest. We actually know this ebb and flow pattern well, how often do you hear ‘Don’t talk to …. until they’ve had their coffee.’, ‘I wouldn’t talk to … they are in a bad mood.’, ‘Don’t eat that, it is too old.’, ‘The car needs an oil change.’, and on the coast ‘It’s the perfect time for swimming, it’s high tide.’
Now interestingly enough the ‘best time’ in the ebb and flow cycle will actually change as you do. For instance (using one of my examples below), when first working on abundance mentality, it’s probably not the best time to start when you are in self pity. However once you have been working with this pattern for awhile, the goal is that when you are going into self pity will be the best time to practice abundance mentality. It’s a learning curve to heal/change a pattern just like anything else. So ease into healing/changing a pattern, be gentle and kind to yourself, and remember, mistakes are normal, without mistakes we learn nothing. Not sure I’m right? Talk to any scientist about mistakes, you will find they are pivotal to learning and ultimately leading to breakthroughs.
Should you choose to heal/change a pattern, may your experience be light like a butterfly.
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 your 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 to changing any pattern. 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

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.
