It’s an Ahaw day (Mayan Daykeeper)

Wonderful trip to Denman yesterday. The Denman ferry is pulled across on underground cables so the ride is beautifully quiet without engines, I really enjoyed that. The green cemetery was simply serene, it will be wonderful when we manifest one here on Gabriola. It’s the end of a cycle & I don’t seem particularly chatty this morning, so I am finishing this post with photos from Denman. Enjoy your day folks.

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.

It’s a Kawak day (Mayan Daykeeper)

So today we are invited to acknowledge and respect life’s mysteries and all that is beyond our power and control.

I’m off to see Canada’s first green cemetery on Denman island in the Salish Sea. Death will be very present there & it’s made me think about why in our culture we fear death as much as we do. For most of us we do not choose the time & circumstance of our deaths, which leaves us in a situation where death is beyond our power and control.

Light instant transformation, this amazing colour happened on Christmas day 2016

Although freedom and control in the traditional sense, is an illusion in western civilization, from my perspective, we do love to pretend that we are in control and free. In death we face an event that cannot be coloured by this illusion. I wonder if this is in part why we fear death as a culture to the extent we do.

So today I am off to embrace death, perhaps make it a wee bit more of an ally & chat with a few spirits. Perhaps this will lead to immediate transformation.

As tomorrow’s day keeper is ‘Ahaw’ all about completion, I will complete this story tomorrow with pictures from our excursion to Denman.

Should you be interested in learning more on green burials and end of life resources here’s Denman’s Cemetery website and a Gabriola Community DeathCare Collective’s resource site which is in process with new info being added little by little.

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.
