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.

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of what is becoming outdated or complete.

The 2nd Imagining ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Ak’bal

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.

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 2nd Imagining ~ I imagine that life is challenge & giving – otherwise I would not be experiencing the presence of life and Her Balance

Challenge affords us the opportunity to take part in life & find out the truth of things. Giving  affords us, all the planet provides, that sustains & engages us. Put the two together and we have our life experience her on beautiful Grandmother Earth.

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 live in abundance
~ There is no end to places I can explore
~ Nature teaches me about challenge, giving & balance
~ My life is rich and fulfilling
~ Seasons offer me the opportunity to understand & live within the rhythms of nature
~ Animals mirror what I need to accept & bring into my life

Imagination, blackberries, thorns, mayan, daykeeper, Ak'bal, death, rebirth, healingthroughceremony.com. Michele Fire-River Heart
Mmmmm blackberries, the challenge is to harvest them without too many thorns ripping your skin. The giving is obvious, the plant makes these berries specifically to give them away.  The seeds will not be viable until they have been abraded in a bird’s gizzard or eroded by digestive acids. Then water and air can enter the seed and germination can begin. So whoever/whatever eats the blackberries is giving back as well.

The Interconnection of The Physical & Sacred Animals ~ Today’s Daykeeper is K’an

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 The Physical and Sacred Animals ~ Animals teach us about naturalness. Our totem power animal in particular teaches us about our own naturalness. How to use our physical bodies in the most balanced way, what our particular rhythms are. A bear versus a spider is a very different way to be natural for instance. As well as the individual nuances, you as a bear would be different than me as a bear, but our bear totem animals would be offering us both the mirror of naturalness that we each need to see.

4 – The Fourth Great Teacher is The Physical
The Physical teaches us about determination of health and harmony

Our physical bodies and the physical world let us know when something is out of balance. If we don’t get the message and do something to heal the problem, things get quite messy. As we age, the body is the last great teacher, lessons unlearned can be  manifested in diseases that give us a final opportunity to heal/learn what we need to in this lifetime. I have found it interesting to look at diseases and relate them back to emotional blockages. Folks with a lot of anger quite often end up with heart problems. Someone with severe control issues that are not addressed ….. altzheimers or other diseases that take away their ability to assert control. Unresolved resentment ….. arthritis. It’s nice to believe that this is new age woo woo, as we are then absolved from any responsibility. However science has now proved that every emotion we have, effects the physical body, everything we eat, say and do, expresses itself in the physical body. Our bodies are an expression of what is going on in our emotional world.

I want to live a vibrant life right up to death. So I work on my healing all the time, I watch my emotions, what I eat, drink, watch, listen to. I will give my body as little as possible to work with in terms of lessons of the physical as I age. Knowing that my  emotional landscape affects my physical one helps me be consistent in working on my healing journey. We are all at choice.

Should you be interested in the correlation between emotion and disease…..

4- 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.

The Interconnection of Pain & Sacred Plants ~ Today’s Daykeeper is Ak’bal

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 pain and Sacred Plants ~ Well I imagine most of you know that plants heal, most of our medicines are based on plant medicine, and many of us still use plant medicine directly from Grandmother Earth in it’s natural form. On vacation this year I burnt my finger. As I was out camping I had a small med kit but nothing for burns. On the beach was a succulent plant that my intuition informed me would be useful. I tested it and yes, low and behold when rubbed on my burn, the pain went away and the burn healed at twice the usual rate. Nature provides, plants heal pain. Now I am not suggesting you go out and experiment, I happen to work with plants and plant medicine. It is important to gather information and knowledge before using a plant. To ensure that it is the right medicine for you. There are many resources available and master herbalists are now coming back into our culture. Find one that resonates with you and explore the wonders of our pain relieving plants.

3 – The Third Great Teacher is Pain
Pain teaches us respect for the different forms that life takes

Pain, there are so many kinds, they all have one thing in common they warn us that we need to take notice of something. Like most of life’s lessons, if we ignore pain or block it out, things get worse not better whether we are aware of it or not. So if we were teaching a child about pain what would we teach? Well all we can teach is anecdotal, as we can intellectualize pain, but we have no point of reference unless we experience it, and we all experience it differently. That said however, we can teach through our life experience and our actions, by dealing with pain openly, honestly and with the greatest speed possible.
Okay great, lalala, but what does that mean to you, right? I image if you’re reading this you have experienced pain, physical, mental and emotional, although I tend to think mental & emotional go hand in hand. I invite you to recapitulate a pain that has healed, how did you handle it? Now in retrospect, could you have done something differently back then to speed up your healing? This is not about judging yourself, or beating yourself up, this is about looking back in neutrality to see what you learned from that experience. At the time you were doing the best you could with the knowledge you had.

I know for myself I used to drown mental/emotional pain with substances. When I blew up my life I finally was at the point that I could let go of that strategy, heal and create a new one. Sobriety. However patterns of behaviour run deep and I still ignored physical pain with the validations that I had to work through the pain, because of monetary needs, I was getting older, my liver was unhealthy due to past abusive behaviours, etc. and therefore, I manifested a life that was physically painful every day.

I then worked on not ignoring my body’s pain, with strategies, hot packs, cold Great Teachers, Pain, mayan, daykeeper, Ak'bal, death, rebirth, healingthroughceremony.com. Michele Fire-River Heartpacks, topical pain relievers, and yes sometimes meds, which is not a good strategy as it results in other lovely side effects in me, such as reflux and heartburn, yaay pharmaceuticals ….not! Now I have graduated to honouring my body’s pace and abilities more often than not, healing my poverty mentality and changing my diet, which has been stunningly successful in reducing pain in my body. It hasn’t been quick, it’s been gradual, and is still a work in progress.

Reflecting back I am amused by all my creative validations that kept me stuck where I was and in pain. Now I have a new awareness of a few different forms my life has taken and I created it all. How I choose is still up to me, but now I have a lot more knowledge and tools at my disposal and the wisdom to apply them, more often than not.

How do you deal with physical pain?
How do you deal with emotional pain?
In all the ways you deal with pain, what is the most successful?
In all the ways you deal with pain, what are you the most proud of? Think there’s nothing, look again, there’s always something each of us does well, find it, own it!

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.
