Playing with Being Present ~ With Another Human

Today’s Mayan Daykeeper is Lamat ~ Lamat’s essence is the creative process in all forms. (Full info at bottom of post)

Day 8 of  Playing with Being Present: Today’s theme is Being present WITH ANOTHER HUMAN
No matter the gender no matter the age, be present, totally present with someone today. Hold a space for them with no agenda of your own.

Here are some questions to ponder after you’ve done playing with the theme for the day.
~ Does it differ from your usual experience?
~ Have you had a new awareness from this experience?
~ Do you want to play with this again, or did it suck?
~ Was there any value in this experience? What ….
~ Are you beating yourself up for not playing well? Be present with that, and see if you want to repeat the flogging, or might you find that being present with a wee bit of compassion for yourself feels good?

Play, play, play. This is not a test, not supposed to be hard. If it’s not fun don’t do it now, try playing again later.

In this 20 day cycle you are invited to play with being present. Being in the present moment really means we are being conscious. Not in the past and not in the future. When we are in the present all the kvetching we do is not there. What you may notice is that kvetching/internal dialogue is about the past or the future.  Every day will bring a new theme with which to play. An invitation to experience being present for as short or as long as you like. This is not a test, perfection is an illusion and not the natural law. Natural law is imperfection, if you doubt this, I invite you to go into nature and find one perfect thing. There is perfection in imperfection. No matter what we play, sports, games or anything else, with repetition comes learning and improvement. So be gentle with yourself, this is not work, it is play. Have fun experiencing …….

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.

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

Day 7 of  Playing with Being Present: Today’s theme is YOUR HEART
My heart, when I awake I hear it pounding, when it breaks I feel it hurting, when I see my child I feel it bursting with love, without it pumping ….. well no blog for starters. As today is Singles Awareness Day (Valentines Day) I thought it appropriate for our hearts to get some attention. So fill your own hearts with love for yourselves, treat yourself, be gentle and kind to yourself.

Our hearts have the biggest electro-magnetic field in our bodies, what will yours attract today, and will you be aware of it?

Manik’s presence may be experienced as a connection to the future.

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.

and remember that a part of you lives on forever.

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.

Playing with Being Present ~ Eating

Today’s Mayan Daykeeper is 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.  (Full info at bottom of post)

Day 5 of  Playing with Being Present: Today’s theme is EATING
I imagine like me many people eat while watching a show of some sort, some don’t sit down to eat, others eat in community. Being present when eating for me makes a big impact on my experience. I have an awareness of all the energies that went into creating the food. Sometimes the number of countries and people that went into creating my food is staggering. I have a moment to acknowledge myself for preparing the food, which impacts me more than I would have imagined. Tasting & smelling more, my experience of having had enough and being satisfied changes. Which in turn leads me to eat less.

Whatever your situation, I invite you to sit down alone and eat something while being present, life as you know it will change.

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.

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.

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.

Play with Being Present ~ Birds

Day 1 of  Playing with Being Present: Today’s theme is BIRDS

Mayan Daykeeper Imix has brought us back to the beginning of a new cycle of 20 days.
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. (Full info at bottom of post)

In this 20 day cycle you are invited to play with being present. Being in the present moment really means we are being conscious. Not in the past and not in the future. When we are in the present all the kvetching we do is not there. What you may notice is that kvetching/internal dialogue is about the past or the future.  Every day will bring a new theme with which to play. An invitation to experience being present for as short or as long as you like. This is not a test, perfection is an illusion and not the natural law.

What catalyzed this theme was the recent death of a Gabriolan, who was killed by a car while jogging. I met this person only once, just a few weeks ago, and yet can hardly picture him or have anything to share on my experience with him. I was present physically however not present mentally! Who knows what I was busying my mind with, or why I had split attention, the bottom line is I missed an opportunity to be present with him, unaware that this was my only opportunity to engage with him in this life time. What might I have learnt about him, what richness may he have brought to my life that day, what gifts were on offer with the interaction that I missed. It has sparked in me a resolve to focus on being present when I engage with people in the future, no matter what the circumstances. Now I know I’ll not always be successful, but as long as I continue to play with being present it will eventually just become my naturalness most of the time.

My intent is to open a space where you can experience different aspects of life and yourself in the present moment. The concept of ‘being present’ is bandied about, however how often have you actually taken the time to play with it, rather than it being yet another thing you’re supposed to do. So go and play. If you have a theme you’d like to suggest, please do.

Here are some questions to ponder after you’ve done playing with the theme for the day.
~ Does it differ from your usual experience?
~ Have you had a new awareness from this experience?
~ Do you want to play with this again, or did it suck?
~ Was there any value in this experience? What ….
~ Are you beating yourself up for not playing well? Be present with that, and see if you want to repeat the flogging, or might you find that being present with a wee bit of compassion for yourself feels good?

Play, play, play. This is not a test, not supposed to be hard. If it’s not fun don’t do it now, try playing again later.

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.
