Play with being Present: Feet

Today’s Mayan Daykeeper is Ik ~ The essence of Ik is birthing through growth, literal & metaphorical. (Full info at bottom of post)

Day 2 of  Playing with Being Present: Today’s theme is FEET
Pay attention to your feet today.  These two little things we call feet supporting the entire weight of our bodies, supporting us through our lives. Today is all about them, see what they have to say when you give them your attention. You may be surprised.

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 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.

Dreaming for Balance: Satisfaction

Day 2 of  Dreaming for Balance: Today’s theme is SATISFACTION
The word dreaming refers to our sleeping dreams and the awake dreamtime, our life when our physical bodies are awake. We are the creators of both.

Today’s Mayan Daykeeper is Ik ~ The essence of Ik is birthing through growth, literal & metaphorical. (Full info at bottom of post)

In this 20 day cycle you are invited to use Trance Dreams/Day-dreams which occur through intent or sometimes spontaneously through meditation as a discovery tool. Every day You are invited to play with the theme presented. You may choose to intend on having a new awareness around this theme that day and just allow your subconscious mind to present you with an awareness during the day, or you may choose to do a meditation on the theme and see what comes. You may choose to do nothing and that’s okay too. Whatever you choose, I invite you to not make this ‘work’ but rather something to play with, something to explore. What you do with your findings? …… Well you decide the answer to that one.

The daily themes may be used to illuminate different aspects of your ego; the places where your masked ego is ‘on point’ and the places where your ego has become the transcended ego. Uncovering the masks that you took on to survive, and the places where you have taken off your mask and discovered the beauty of impermanence.

Impermanence is the nature of reality. Everything is impermanent, plants, animals, rocks, our bodies, Grandmother Earth, stars, our moods, and yes even our ego. Living in Impermanence is the state of being that is called the transcended ego. As you heal and change, integrating impermanence into your life, you gain freedom. Living from a place of impermanence, you are no longer at the Effect of Life and Others. You stand in the moment and take action, flexible and in control of your choices.

In everything there are positive and negative energies. The masked and transcended ego are just the ying and yang of that particular energy we call the ego. Neither is right or wrong, they are both just states of being where you can understand and learn more about yourself. With that understanding you are at choice, what action you take is up to you.

Your dream creation, Your symbols, Your interpretation, affecting Your life.

There are many types of dreams for various reasons. Some of which are Recapitulation Dreams which provide information for us to problem solve issues and questions about our daily lives. Prophetic dreams which give us information about the future. Trance Dreams/Day-dreams which occur through intent or sometimes spontaneously through meditation. Epic Dreams that show us other worlds, some are life changing and some magickal. The ultimate dream goal, is the Power Dream, where we have gained enough knowledge and ability to control our sleeping dream in order to manifest what we will in both the sleeping and awake dreams.

Dreaming Day 2 with Daykeeper Ik

Day 2 of our 20 day cycle of dreaming.

Tonight’s dream intent will be working with Ik ~ The essence of Ik is birthing through growth, literal & metaphorical.

Your dream intent is something that is relevant to your life that you wish an answer for.
I.E. with Ik: “My dream intent is to gain clarity on one thing that is most important for me to birth this year”
There is information on the process starting at the asterisks *** below.

Dreaming is one of the ways we get information and messages that we can use to manifest our realities in this lifetime. The word dreaming refers to our sleeping dreams and the awake dreamtime, our life when our physical bodies are awake. We are the creators of both.
~ What did you dream about last night?
~ Did you remember your dream?
~ Did you glean anything from your dream?
Please feel free to share in the comments section.

In our current 20 day cycle you are invited to explore and start to train your ability of    dreaming. Each evening before you fall asleep set an intent based on the essence of the Daykeeper present that day, each morning you will interpret your dream for a message.  There may be many messages in a dream, however let’s do baby steps. The most important thing to remember is NO-ONE can interpret your dream for you. I don’t care how many books or people say otherwise and here’s why. Dreams teach you through symbolism, your symbolism. If you see a horse in your dream, what does the symbol of a horse represent to you? A horse will represent many different things as a symbol to different people. So if someone else interprets your dream, you are getting their interpretation of the symbols in your dream from their perspective not yours. I don’t know about you, but I find no relevance in that.

Your dream creation, Your symbols, Your interpretation, affecting Your life.

Here are some steps that may help, use what you wish or don’t use any it’s up to you. Most importantly if you do not remember a dream that’s perfectly okay, there are days we remember and days we don’t. Be gentle with yourselves this is not a test, it’s an exploration. Exploring doesn’t always result in finding the pot of gold, sometimes the end of that darn rainbow is just elusive and that’s the way it goes. Have fun.

*** DREAM INTERPRETATION PROCESS
Before you go to sleep
~ Put a pen and paper next to your bed for easy access
~ Set an intent based on the current Daykeeper. Something that is relevant to your life that you wish an answer for.
~ Write it down on you paper
~ Say it out loud just before you fall asleep

In the morning or any time you wake during the night. As you are waking up, in that time when you are aware of the dream and waking up
~ Intentionally remember as much of the dream as you can
~ Write down as much as you can using double line spacing, including how you felt/feel, emotions, colours, smells, etc. Write it as it comes, do not go into your head analyzing if it makes sense or is coherent, just write
~ Using your extra line spacing to write in, write down your interpretation of what each word means to you symbolically
~ When complete look for meaning, a message within your interpreted writing. Just one, finding all the messages and meanings can be overwhelming to start. If nothing makes sense, see if a certain word, symbol, feeling, emotion, smell or colour that jumps out and go from there. There is no right or wrong here, if you feel it’s relevant then it is. If nothing comes don’t stress or beat yourself up, just leave it for now and go about your day.
~ Ask for more of the dream or meaning be revealed to you during your day.

Other questions that may help:
~ What was my intent?
~ What is the feeling of the dream?
~ What is the general energy of the dream?
~ What was the most important object in the dream?
~ How does this dream relate to my intent?
~ Is there a symbol that sticks out from the rest? What does it represent to me in relation to my intent?

There are many types of dreams for various reasons. Some of which are Recapitulation Dreams which provide information for us to problem solve issues and questions about our daily lives. Prophetic dreams which give us information about the future. Trance Dreams/Day-dreams which occur through intent or sometimes spontaneously through meditation. Epic Dreams that show us other worlds, some are life changing and some magickal. The ultimate dream goal, is the Power Dream, where we have gained enough knowledge and ability to control our sleeping dream in order to manifest what we will in both the sleeping and awake dreams.

Dental work for free ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Ik

So for our  first story about human kindness, I thought this was an excellent one. So many people in Canada live with rotting teeth, gum disease and pain, due to zero coverage by our health care system. I for one am warmed to the cockles of my heart when I read this story.

From sunnyskyz.com here’s the article and a video as well.

Love: Parents ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Ik

Love: Parent(s)/Primary Caregiver(s) sit in the East of the Love Medicine Wheel

I put parents in the East, as the East is about catalyst energies, the sun, fire, fire of creation, the stars, raw power, illumination & enlightenment. Parents catalyze our being into this lifetime.

What interconnections do we have on other medicine wheels:
~ Inter-connection: Well no inter-connection, no baby eh!
~ Attainment: From conception to walking, to graduating and onward, attainment is everywhere on the journey for both parents and children.
~ Self-determination: Personally I believe we choose our parents for the best opportunity to heal in the this lifetime. So self-determination of the spirit being born.
~ Devotion: Well parenting usually comes with devotion
~ Expansive mind: Children automatically create the stage for our minds to expand. What first time parent could have imagined what was to come, and each child is different, so the opportunity to learn is present with each successive child.
~ Integrity: I found that having a wee one looking at me as a role model helped my integrity. The more integrity we have the clearer the mirror is for our children, and the greater image-maker we become.
~ Discovery: Parenting is a constant road of discovery, for parents and children

and love …… lets delve into parents and love tomorrow

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.

On Sept 21st Mayan Daykeeper Imix brought us back to the beginning of a new cycle of 20 days. This cycle I am 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 going to look at something call ‘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 first imagining ~ I imagine men & women are equal.
My version: I imagine all people are equal regardless of gender

Imagine, people are equal, Mayan, daykeeper, Ik, expansion, birth, burst, air, release, healing through ceremony.com, michele fire-river heart

I invite you to sit with this, and write down what this means to you.

Here’s some of what that means to me:
I am seen
I am heard
All opportunities are available
Emotions are considered natural
No one has fewer rights than another
My daughter doesn’t face discrimination & violence due to her gender

 

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.

The Interconnection of Care & Grandmother Earth ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Ik

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.

Interconnection between Care and Grandmother Earth ~ Well for me this is a no-brainer. Grandmother Earth cares for everything upon her, us included. When we live in balance we have everything we need. When looking from the perspective of self-acceptance this connection is brilliant. Anyone who works in gardens knows that some things die and others just appear out of nowhere and start to grow. That whenever you leave bare soil, vegetation rushes in to fill the void. The garden doesn’t judge death as wrong or birth as right it just is, what is …… acceptance.

Change is one thing you can count on, death & rebirth in all forms is natural. When you can accept this about yourself and your life, things go a lot smoooooother. All your Care, Teacher, Mayan, daykeeper, Ik, expansion, birth, burst, air, release, healing through ceremony.com, michele fire-river heartshoulds, musts, wishes & wants are a waste of energy and change nothing for the better. They limit you and your experience in this earth plane keeping you stuck in a loop.

So today I invite you to let go of just one piece of negative internal dialogue that is running around in your head. Open a door and just let it out each time it comes up, give it the boot. Something that helps me, is to imagine someone else saying these things to me, I would not allow it. It puts into perspective what I am saying to myself, which helps me let it go and be gentle with myself, and increase my self-acceptance. Easy does it, practice, practice, practice until that piece is replaced by a more positive pattern.

2 – The Second Great Teacher is Care
Care teaches us about self-acceptance

Self-care, a very bandied about word, that perhaps has lost it’s meaning due to this. If we look at care from the perspective of care for another does that reframe self-care for us? When I care for another person, I have love for them, want them to be safe, happy, have love, have their needs met, mentally, physically, spiritually. Have a safe home, friends that care about them, support them, stand by them even when the going gets tough or is not pretty, forgive them when they screw up. I hope they heal where needed, have courage to do what needs to be done, have strong boundaries. I hope that no harm comes to them and that they have a juicy life that feeds them on all levels. Now can I do that for me? In my paradigm that is self-care.

Now I ponder how does care teach us about self-acceptance? Let’s see, if I cannot forgive myself, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I cannot love myself, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I do not stand by myself, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I doCare, Teacher, Mayan, daykeeper, Ik, expansion, birth, burst, air, release, healing through ceremony.com, michele fire-river heart not have strong boundaries, well I probably do not feel I deserve to honour myself & it follows that I do not accept myself. If I do not care about myself enough to do what needs to be done, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I beat myself up when I make mistakes, I do not accept myself. If I expect myself to be perfect then I do not accept myself. Etc.

~ So can You care about yourself as much as you care for another, your child, your pet, your plant?
~ What is one thing you can do today for yourself, that is caring, that you normally don’t do?

2 – The Two ~ TWO is the number for the EARTH 
The SecondBorn from Sacred Zero was Two. The Two exists in the West of the MedicineWheel, the place of the Colouring of Time.
~ The West is the dancer called Earth. (Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

2 – 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.

Care as a Teacher ~ Grandmother Earth ~ Mayan Daykeeper Ik

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.

2 – The Second Great Teacher is Care
Care teaches us about self-acceptance

What does care mean to you?
Do you care for yourself?
Do you care for others?
Which do you do more of?
Why does care teach about self-acceptance?
How much self-acceptance do you think you have?

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.

The Teacher of Care ~ Grandmother Earth ~ Mayan Daykeeper Ik

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.

2 – The Second Great Teacher is Care
Care teaches us about self-acceptance

Self-care, a very bandied about word, that perhaps has lost it’s meaning due to this. If we look at care from the perspective of care for another does that reframe self-care for us? When I care for another person, I have love for them, want them to be safe, happy, have love, have their needs met, mentally, physically, spiritually. Have a safe home, friends that care about them, support them, stand by them even when the going gets tough or is not pretty, forgive them when they screw up. I hope they heal where needed, have courage to do what needs to be done, have strong boundaries. I hope that no harm comes to them and that they have a juicy life that feeds them on all levels. Now can I do that for me? In my paradigm that is self-care.

Now I ponder how does care teach us about self-acceptance? Let’s see, if I cannot forgive myself, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I cannot love myself, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I do not stand by myself, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I doCare, Teacher, Mayan, daykeeper, Ik, expansion, birth, burst, air, release, healing through ceremony.com, michele fire-river heart not have strong boundaries, well I probably do not feel I deserve to honour myself & it follows that I do not accept myself. If I do not care about myself enough to do what needs to be done, it follows that I do not accept myself. If I beat myself up when I make mistakes, I do not accept myself. If I expect myself to be perfect then I do not accept myself. Etc.

~ So can You care about yourself as much as you care for another, your child, your pet, your plant?
~ What is one thing you can do today for yourself, that is caring, that you normally don’t do?

Ik is here today (Mayan Daykeeper)

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

2 – Ik      and     2 – Grandmother Earth  (Hyemeyohsts Storm’s Earth Count)

Well this one’s a no brainer, Grandmother Earth births us all, every living thing on her. So tick, number 2 interconnects. Birthing I love this metaphor for other things in life apart from actual birthing. Just like actual birthing it can be painful or not, quick or slow.

Well today’s the day when the energy is present for birthing, which manifests as greater momentum in birthing something new without you having to do anything different. So let’s get birthing folks. There are approx. 360,000 physical births per day worldwide, imagine how many metaphysical ones there are. Will you give birth today?

Ik is present today (Mayan Daykeeper)

So Ik invites us to push our boundaries & do something we wouldn’t normally do (In the light folks this isn’t an excuse for badass behaviour). Interestingly this brings up resistance in me. Initially I thought it was due to my preference for routine, however no. So much of my life has been about battling addiction in some form or another, that my usual feeling about doing something I wouldn’t normally do is related to not doing something. Don’t eat the sugar, don’t drink, don’t smoke, don’t toke, definitely don’t do the coke …..hehehe! My choice of doing something I wouldn’t normally do today is to release the belief that I still need to do battle. This belief no longer serves me. My whole body just relaxed, nice…..

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, the iconography of each Daykeeper, the symbol of each Daykeeper, meditations with the Daykeepers, as well as your personal birth Daykeeper.
