This 20 day cycle is completed today. Tomorrow brings a new cycle, what is to come? Haven’t a clue, let’s wait and see shall we.
Love, love, love, love, love: 5 is the number for Sacred Humans, and what permeates our lives is love. We all want to be loved and I’d hazard a guess and say we all experience love at some time or another during this lifetime. Why this intense desire for love, why can’t we just be happy without it? Perhaps love is the catalyst for personal growth, the glue that holds the fabric of all our interconnections, all our opportunities of self-discovery and living a juicy life in balance.
~ Parents/Primary Caregiver(s) catalyze our being into this lifetime, and what a bond. As parents we can’t help but fall in love with our children and as children the longing for parental love and acceptance dominates our emotional landscape for a very, very long time. For some it is a lifetime, for some it never gets resolved, for some parental love is absent. However in all cases the longing for parental love is present from what I’ve seen.
~ Life Partner(s) give us an experience of love that is the most intimate and passionate, well at the beginning anyway. Just like that first sip of coffee, first taste of ice-cream, first line of cocaine we chase the high of that experience. Oooh I just felt a whole lot of you cringe at that last analogy. However that beginning phase of ‘falling in love’ is very addictive. We go from that into the sober experience of relationship with our partner(s) and that’s when the mind clears for better or for worse. (pun intended) Life partner(s) help us resolve issues from our childhood. They mirror for us, what needs to be seen at that moment in our journey of self-discovery. How often have we heard of someone picking the same type of partner over and over again, when from the outside it looks like it is to their detriment? Until they learn and heal the issues that are offered by being with this partner, they continue to get the opportunity to do so. So if you’re in a crappy relationship, look deeply into yourself. What needs to heal within you, what needs to change, what needs to be released, so that love can once again be a daily experience in your relationship with a partner(s).
~ Siblings offer us the opportunity to discover who we are as we grow up. So whether your siblings are biological, or not, or are other children you grew up with in the same home, you were/are dramatically influenced by those relationships, and the love or lack thereof within them.
~ Animals: Even though I do not have a pet I automatically smile when I think of animals, and I imagine this is true for most of us. Why? From my perspective; unconditional love. That sweet, pure elusive love that rarely comes from humans, is automatically perceived to be given by animals. Particularly those that live with us. What a gift it is to experience this kind of love.
~ Grandparents can be a wonderful experience of love. These blood relatives know what it is to be parents, but with their grandchildren, have the opportunity to love without the responsibilities of parenting. (Unless of course they are the primary caregivers, in which case they fall into the parental category of love.) How often are grandparents the ones that treat us and facilitate us doing things that are ‘not allowed’. With the freedom they have from mundane parental responsibility they are often the image-makers in our lives that expand what we thought was possible.
~ Friends: ever noticed the emphasis our society attributes to how many friends you have? Do we associate that with how much love we have to give and are given? I’ll leave you to answer that from your perspective. I have noticed that the friends we surround ourselves with are reflections of ourselves. Birds of a feather flock together. When we dramatically change all of a sudden our circle of friends does as well. Friends provide us with mirrors of self-reflection. The more they are like us, the greater our opportunity for self-discovery.
~ Self-Love, ouch this is the one from my perspective that is the barometer of our ability to love. Can you love yourself enough to honour your boundaries, beliefs and needs? Can you love yourself enough to accept your internal challenges and your mistakes? Can you love yourself just as you are now, warts and all? Can you love yourself first and say no when it does not serve you?
~ Children offer us a glimpse of innocence, of naturalness, for a lot of us a mirror of things lost. Over and above our biological love of children in order to sustain the human race, we love that mirror of who we were before life happened and we adapted to survive. Deep down I believe we are aware that this is how we are meant to be in order to be happy and balanced within our own being. Ever noticed that when you play with children, the world fades away, and you are present. Just present not trying to be in the moment, you just are there. As children this was not hard, this was natural. The more childlike we become, the easier life gets. Why? Flexibility, lack of judging, lack of reruns of past history, and imagining scenarios that may or may not happen. We just are, nothing more, our internal world is peaceful and quiet.
~ Spirit: when we engage with the world of spirit, we engage with ourselves. We are after all spiritual beings experiencing a human lifetime, in order to heal and grow, to remember our true nature. Well this is my belief at this moment. I leave you with your own. What is it you believe about spirit?

Mayan Daykeeper Ahaw ~ 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.

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.
