Galactic Tone 1: The beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one.
Monkey/Chuen: Known to the maya as the weaver of time – Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by monkey – amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades. Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Monkey/CHUEN is a prevailing influence over the next 13 days as Galactic Tone 1 begins a new trecena.
On Chuen days, the Maya express their intention to freely receive all that they have requested from the universe, and to be able to unravel or resolve any matter or issue. Chuen days are extremely auspicious for all artistic works and endeavors; in fact, it is a powerful day to begin any project. And it is the best day in the Tzolk’in to ask for a partner or to be married.
What if you were given a time when the answer to your every request was YES? What would you ask for that you’re not asking for now?
Why aren’t you asking for it now? Are you afraid of the answer “No?” Or, have you reached even further to imagine the scenario of “no” with all its disappointing outcomes? Sometimes I think of all the scenarios I’ve endured over a lifetime – stuff that never happened. And, the many times I never asked because I convinced myself the answer was already No.
Under the right circumstances, every request holds the power of a ‘yes’ answer. When we anticipate ‘yes’ we operate in a completely different way. I’m more likely to present my request with humility and gratitude.
When I expect to hear “no” – I’m inclined to justify why I deserve the “yes,” and, how I might best control and manipulate this outcome.
Right there, I am left with no way to graciously receive anything. Even someone with the power to say “yes” may be less inclined to, and if they do – the right to freely GIVE is reduced to obligation versus the balance of an equal exchange. The win-win has been taken out of it. No one leaves the exchange feeling better.
The first step in asking for anything is to release the outcome and see that regardless of the answer, everything will be okay. That in fact, whatever the answer, I am being led to higher ground.
What do you really need to ask for? And, imagine that the answer has already been decided – as YES.
