~ Notice what attracts you about the photo. As a symbol what does this mean to you and your life walk?
~ Notice any ‘thoughts, images, colours’ that pop up not from your brain, but rather from your gut or elsewhere. (If it’s from your brain that is your ego chatting away, trying to distract you from hearing your intuition.)

I have let go of the Mayan Daykeepers as a basis for my posts. I pull a major arcana tarot card every day from the Mayan Xultun Tarot Deck by Peter Balin. Due to honouring copyright I will not be posting a photo of the card but instead I will post a photo of something that resonates as a mirror for that card. It is up to you, to interpret what the photo’s message is for you each day.  Let’s play with tarot. See what your intuitive messages are.

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 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.

Interconnection of Kurunji (Strobilanthes lanatus) & Mayan Daykeeper Etz’nab

Semelparity: It is when an organism only reproduces once, then dies. Kurunji (Strobilanthes lanatus) is such a plant. It lives for 13 years then the entire species produces flowers than masses of seeds and dies worldwide. This was a new one to me. Isn’t the world just a never ending opportunity for surprises, I love that. So from the website stuff an article written by Russell Fransham.

Of all the seasons spring brings our attention to the plant world the most, from my perspective. So for this 20 day cycle I’m going to find a plant, tree, herb, etc that illuminates or holds the energy of the daily Daykeeper. Let’s explore together.

Burst into Spring rejuvenated … Play with Mayan Daykeeper Etz’nab today

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

~ What are you waiting to birth?
~ What is inhibiting you from birthing this?
~ What are you ready to let go of to move another step closer to what you want to birth?

Spring Equinox Releasing and Rebirthing Ceremony 
Intent: To release whatever is no longer serving you and to rebirth what you most desire in your life.

Materials Needed:

  • 1 large sheet of paper (or tape several pieces of paper together) or use a sheet of poster board
  • 1 regular sized piece of paper
  • Pen, marker, or coloured felt pens
  • Candle, candle holder, and lighter Smudge

~ Find a comfortable place indoors or a sheltered space outdoors to do this ceremony.
~ Gather all your ceremonial materials together.
~ Begin by smudging yourself and your space.
~ Light the candle and send some prayers to honour the return of the light and the rebirthing of new life.
~ Then state your personal intent for this ceremony.

~ Draw an outline of your physical body on the large sheet of paper. It doesn’t need to be perfect or even artistic but it does need to include your entire body.

~ Gaze into the light of the candle and ask yourself:
What emotional patterns are holding me back?
~ Draw a symbol (or write the words) with pen or coloured markers to represent every old emotional pattern you are ready to release. Make these markings over the part of your body where they most impact you.

Example: If you have been burying your feelings of anger instead of speaking up for yourself, you might draw a shovel and you might want to draw it on your mouth or throat or heart. Remember this is not a mental process. Ask your body for the symbol or word and the colour to draw it in and the location on the drawing of your body to place it. Continue until all the old emotional patterns have been recorded on your drawing.

~ Then gaze into the light and ask yourself:
What mental patterns or negative thoughts are harming me?
~ Draw a symbol (or write the words) with pen or coloured markers to represent every old mental pattern you are ready to release. Make these markings over the part of your body where they most impact you and continue until all the old mental patterns have been recorded.

~ Repeat this method of looking into the light, asking the questions and recording all the old patterns you are ready to slough off, asking yourself: What physical patterns or personal destructive behaviours are harming me? What spiritual patterns or personal behaviours of isolating and separating are harming me?
What sexual (or Life Force) patterns are harming my energy or my sense of self?

~ When complete with all 5 directions, you should have many drawings and words on your paper. Look them over carefully. See the ones that have caused you the most harm.

~ Put your hand on your heart and speak any self-forgiveness you need to do. Speak it aloud and with kindness from your heart (not your brain!). Do this until you feel a sense of releasing within your body. If there is anything that needs to be cut away, pull it energetically out from your body, cut the energy with the knife edge of your other hand and throw it completely out of your energy field saying, “I cut that _____ away from me now, across all lifetimes.”

~ When complete, gaze into the light of the candle again and find 3 things you desire to bring fully into the light over the next few months, creating a positive statement of your clear determination and commitment for each one (Write these three statements on your second piece of paper.)

Examples: I will speak whatever needs to be spoken in order to respect myself. I will notice the things that give me real pleasure and put more of them in my life.
Whenever I feel stressed I will stop and ask myself what I can do differently.

~ When you have all three statements written down to your satisfaction, find a safe place to burn your first paper. This could be outside in a large metal can, a fire pit or an indoor fireplace or woodstove. Watch the light of the flames consume all this harm completely.

~ Find a place to put your paper with the 3 statements of commitment so that you will be able to see it frequently over the next 3 months (until the summer soltice). You might put it on your bedside table or on the fridge with a magnet. Or you might even want to create an altar with the 3 statements in the centre.

Playing with Being Present ~ Showering

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

Day 18 of  Playing with Being Present: Today’s theme is SHOWERING – Be one with the water droplets. Here on Gabriola even more so, as a lot of us are so careful with this precious resource. Showering can be an event some days, especially in the summer when wells can run dry by May or June. Enjoy the water droplets while ye may! Feel them caress your body, it may be the most ‘action’ you get that day ……

play, being present, showering, mayan, daykeeper, Etz'nab, Anger, change, letting go, destruction, shatter, recreate, create, healing through ceremony, michele fire-river heart

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.

Dreaming for Balance: Ruthless Compassion

Day 18 of  Dreaming for Balancetrance dream, day dream, meditate, dream, dreaming, dream interpretation, mayan, daykeeper, Etz'nab, Anger, change, letting go, destruction, shatter, recreate, create, healing through ceremony, michele fire-river heart
Today’s theme is RUTHLESS COMPASSION. I just love these flowers – Ghost Sea Holly

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 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. (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 18 with Daykeeper Etz’nab

Tonight’s dream intent will be working with 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.

Your dream intent is something that is relevant to your life that you wish an answer for.
For example with Etz’nab: “My dream intent is to see a one thing I need to release right now”
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?
~ Did you forgive yourself if you didn’t remember 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. 

dream, dreaming, dream interpretation, mayan, daykeeper, Etz'nab, Anger, change, letting go, destruction, shatter, recreate, create, healing through ceremony, michele fire-river heart

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 want 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.

From a special blog called Be Robin Hood comes a wonderful story of a marine who at 20 years old lost both his legs in an explosion in Afghanistan. Suffering with PTSD as well this marine found serenity in scuba diving and is now teaching it to others. This form of therapy is called ‘deptherapy’. Click on the link above for the full  story.

When I was growing up there was this lovely cartoon series created by New Zealand cartoonist Kim Casali. (Loveiscartoon.com) I remember waiting for the newspaper to see what the cartoon was that day. It is one of the few things that stuck in my memory about that time in my life. So I’m taking a leaf out of her book, sans cartoons to illuminate my thoughts about love in the upcoming blog posts. Some you may agree with some you may not, it is just my opinion, you have your own and that’s as it should be.

I encourage you to add your own in the comments sections & I will add them in.

Sturgeon Birth Totem Animal ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Etz’nab

Sturgeon Birth Animal Totem: July 23 – Aug 22

The sturgeon is the oldest of all fish with evidence of its existence dating back to the times of the dinosaur. Depending on the species, sturgeons are found in both fresh and salt-water habitats, in the northern temperate zones across all continents of the globe. They live in deep water most of the time, coming into steams or shallow water only to spawn. Spawning does not happen every year. It is a bottom feeder living on the various forms of plant life found there.

The native people treated the sturgeon with great respect. They saw the sturgeon representing depth, strength and knowledge. The sturgeon is known as the keeper of Old Age

Sturgeon teaches about:
~ Longevity
~ As a being of the water element, it helps cleanse deep emotional pattern
~ It shows that deep feelings and inner strength are a gift of living in balance and harmony
~ Sturgeons are doer’s
~ They deal excellently with difficulties
~ They engage with the impossible making it possible
~ They are versatile and do what they do well
~ They create sweeping changes when necessary
~ They appear to be one way on the outside tough and a little prickly when really under the surface they are softhearted
~ They can also be the other way softhearted on the surface and prickly underneath
~ They are sensitive and perceptive yet they project themselves as someone who is regal, independent and powerful
~ They tend to hide their inner pain and worry yet are sensitive and aware of others pain
~ They can be revengeful to those who have hurt them

BIRTH ANIMALS:
~ Help you walk in balance
~ Shows you your heart capacity for love, the nature of your heart
~ How to express emotions and feel them
~ Helps you to be in the present moment emotionally, so you are present and not in past history

When we walk in balance we are connected to reality, the present moment. When out of balance we are in our personal history, living in the past or fantasizing about the future

As irritating as I find this the best site with info I found was on Totalfisherman.com so to balance things out here’s a link to the World Wide Fund for Nature, as some sturgeon are an endangered species. There are numerous sites with info on sturgeon, but they tend to focus on one species in particular. I imagine due to the fact that this fish is hunted all over the world.

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 we are looking at creation through imagination. The relevant daily information on today’s Mayan Daykeeper is below todays musings.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Interconnection of Seeking & The Shee-nah-meeah (Keepers of your books of life) ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Etz’nab

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 seeking & the Shee-nah-meeah ~ The Shee-nah-meeah are the spiritual entities that keep your books of life which are also known as the Akashic records. The Akashic records librarians if you will. So on my shamanic pathway (I can only speak to my experience) one of the ways we heal is by connecting with the Shee-nah-meeah to ask questions regarding this life walk. The answers come in images that you interpret. Those images would be created by the kachinas that were in yesterdays blog. In this way our seeking of more information & knowledge is directly informed via the Shee-nah-meeah. Interconnection indeedy.

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, I think?

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.

Etz’nab is here today (Mayan Daykeeper)

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.

18 – Etz’nab    and    18 – 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 holders of our books of lives, our akashic records of all lifetimes. They can help us see what needs to heal. So eighteen is about balance in both cycles. Releasing what no longer serves us or is ready to heal to bring greater balance to our lives. There’s just no way around this, we can put all the window dressing we want on our lives, but without balance we are making our lives harder than they need to be.

Now balance is the goal, but balance within the chaos of life. So just like a seesaw, the ability to go with the ups and downs that naturally occur in our lives. Nothing is static, so do we have the ability to flow with the cycles without loosing our balance? Tricky isn’t it? However just like a tightrope walker we learn how to adjust ourselves to maintain balance and not fall. A really great way to train your energy is walking on a flat but narrow piece of wood. If this is too edgy to start, begin by walking on a line.

When in balance your energy sits approx 2″ below your navel, when out of balance it moves up or down from there. If you bring your focus to that balance spot in your body you will gradually feel your energy staying there, then you will no longer shake and bake on that piece of wood or on the line.  This takes practice, throw out any illusions of perfection, this is play/practice time. When your energy goes up, bring it back down. The goal is to learn to feel your energy and where it is, not to get it perfect. The first time I was introduced to this idea, I had no idea where my energy was, let alone move it to another place. Be gentle with yourself, you’re going to make mistakes and that’s normal and okay.

Now please do not go out and try something dangerous, if you try this out make sure it is in a safe way, so if you slip you are not going to get hurt. Having a buddy walking next to you in silence, while you practice on the piece of wood is a good idea. Then you can trade off and they can practice. This will train you to be able to feel where your energy is and how to bring yourself back into balance when it moves, so that you can then use it in everyday life. You may know that phrase ‘my heart was in my throat’ which refers to being nervous or afraid, well that’s about energy and where it often goes when you’re afraid, it moves up the centre line of your body.

So when you’re living your life, if your energy is 2″ below your navel, adapting to whatever life brings is much easier than if your energy is anywhere else in your body.

Your mission today should you choose to accept it, go find a seesaw and play! Surprisingly I found it to be quite an odd experience as an adult, talk about putting your heart into your throat, another great training exercise to follow your energy.

Etz’nab is present today (Mayan Daykeeper)

The healing journey is all about letting go, so that we may be healthier and happier. Funny how our adaptations to survive our lives, which at first are a good thing, eventually become a weight we carry, and releasing them is our way to freedom.

What I have noticed in my journey through this lifetime, is that the Universe/God/Creator/Great Spirit/spirit guides/insert your beliefs here, helps us heal by bringing us opportunities to do so. The frog picture from Wednesday has reminded me of one of my opportunities that my daughter & I still get great amusement from.

Growing up I had the great fortune of having an inground swimming pool. What I found disturbing as a child was if my dad hadn’t fished out the frogs before I went swimming. Diving in and coming up face to face with a frog freaked me out. Then my darling brother as all good sibs do, found out about my fear of frogs and proceeded to scare the bejebers out of me with ….. frogs.

So now I’m in my early 40’s and still have a fear of frogs, I know it’s irrational but having done nothing to heal it, it’s still there. I  am in an overnight shamanic ceremony specifically designed to offer us the opportunity to release fear and rebirth ourselves. We had prayer intentions every hour, and the hour that I was supposed to pray for sobriety, well, I conveniently went to sleep. I was awoken by a noise in my enclosed space, I grabbed my flashlight and to my sorrow what was in my space ….. you guessed it a frog! Well after freaking out I scooped it up with my prayer cigarette container and into my pee bucket. I have a bit of a cry & when I calmed down it occurred to me how toxic the bucket was with all the nicotine, then I started praying for the frog. If only I’d had the courage to pick it up and put it out of my area, now the frog is at risk due to my fear. In this particular ceremony getting the pee bucket out of my ceremonial space was not an option without some help. My ceremony buddy was not due for another hour to check on me, so pray for the frog I did. When she came I did another thing that was unheard of for me at that time, I asked for help. (The frog was fine, much to my relief) So the universe had given me this opportunity to heal my frog fear and I had not been able to go there. Okay that was the best I could do that night.

Flash forward to a few months later. My daughter & I are walking in a beautiful nature area. She knows that I am now actively aware that the time to heal my fear of frogs is up/present. Well along comes another opportunity a wee frog, tiny perhaps 1.5 cm long. “Hey mom, here you go, the universe is presenting you another opportunity, just pick it up. I’ll catch it and then you can just take it from me.” Aaaaagh! She gets it, but as I’m about to take it it jumps around in her hands, that’s it I’m done with this try, along with much girly squealing. Okay we continue……. “Hey mom here’s another one.” This one is a bit bigger 3 cm., no no I say, I’ll wait for a smaller one, we continue…….. “Hey mom here’s another one.” This one is even bigger 4.5 cm., no no I say, I’ll wait for a smaller one, we continue…… “Mom you know the universe is upping the ante, they’re getting bigger and bigger.” No, no I’ll wait for a smaller one to try again. The next one we come across is friggin’ huge about 7 cm. That’s it I say, I’ll try another day. The next thing is, we bump into a gentleman who starts chatting with us. He’s very into frogs in fact he’s a scientist of some kind specializing in ……. wait for it, frogs! Well when he leaves we just roar with laughter. Okay the universe is sometimes not very subtle.

Well since then I have continued to work on this fear. I have graduated to not being afraid of them and can actually pick one up, well a little one anyway. When I find one in my planter we have a little chat, and when they sing I smile. Interestingly frog is a symbol for transition and change, so when frog comes to visit I am happy & look forward to seeing what is about to transform. Yes freedom indeedy.

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.

Mayan Daykeeper Etz’nab

Thinking about change this morning brought me up to a dichotomy in my life. I desire change most of the time in a certain area of my life, yet I rebel against change. Hmmmmm I’m sensing a problem ……

I used to rebel against change, clinging to what was familiar, comfortable in my rigid patterns & beliefs. It no longer serves me & I do my best to enjoy the chaos of creation. Now having been uber rigid, I still have areas that could use some flexibility, & that’s okay. I wonder what I will become aware of today that needs releasing?mayan, daykeeper, Etz'nab, Anger, change, letting go, destruction, shatter, recreate, create, healing through ceremony, michele fire-river heart, lechenie narkomanii, pikabay

What would improve your life if you let it go?

What must be let go for balance?

What is changing no matter how you feel?

‘Resistance is futile’ change is one of the things we can count on.

As with all things find your own truth. What resonates use, what doesn’t 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, the iconography of each Daykeeper, the symbol of each Daykeeper, meditations with the Daykeepers, as well as your personal birth Daykeeper.
