6 Kame (10th December 2023)

6 KameThe nawal Kame may make us face the things that frighten us, in order to evolve our souls. Its combination with the energy of the number 6 today suggests empowerment to face physical challenges comes from the hearts of the Sky and Earth .

Whilst the energy of the nawal Kame may bring forth our challenges, it also gives us the strength to face them. These challenges may take many forms, but the energy of today would suggest that they are physical and possibly connected with family.

It is a day to bring stability to any transformations you may wish to go through. It is a day when you may wish to call upon your ancestors, embrace their wisdom, and allow their spirit to support your change. Whilst the challenge you face may be great, today is a very positive day to tackle that challenge. You have the support of your family in both this world and the spirit world, should you ask for it.

Nawal Kame

Kame relates to death, which often makes people nervous. However, this nawal is seen as an extremely positive day. Birth is the gateway into the mortal life, death the gateway into the eternal. In many shamanistic traditions, the initiate goes through several death experiences during training. This can be through the use of particular herbs, or sometimes through accident or illness. In these experiences the density of the mortal realm falls away and the greater understanding emerges. It can often be described as a spiritual transformation. In the Popul Vuh, the Mayan book of creation, the Hero Twins descend to the underworld, Xibalba, to confront the Lords of Death. They pass the many challenges set for them, but eventually end up being tricked by the Lord of Death. Instead of giving in, the Hero Twins choose to sacrifice themselves.

They give instructions to a pair of seers to convince the Lords of Death to grind the Twins’ bones to dust and throw the dust in the river. Everything went according to plan and five days later the twins appeared as catfish in the river, then transformed into vagabond “magicians”. In this way we see a literal transformation from the crusader (Tijax) through death (Kame) to the higher self (Ix). This is the potential of the Kame day, to face ones fears and attain a higher perspective, to advance the journey of your soul. This is also a day to remember your ancestors and friends that have passed into the other realm, to remember what they taught you, and to thank them for their wisdom that helped you to grow.

The Number Six

The number six is said to be the number of ultimate stability. It is the first of the three middle numbers of the cycle, the balance point. Six days are frequently used for ceremony thanks to their conducive energy.

The number 6 carries the qualities of the number 4, but has an extra axis. If we think of the number four representing the cardinal points, the number six adds a vertical axis to these. It brings in the Heart of the Sky and the Heart of the Earth. The number six has the stability of the number four embellished by the masculine and feminine principals. If the number four represents the physical world and the number 6 represents the physical world animated by the life force energy.

It also represents family, relating to the six qualities which hold families together – health, understanding, property, employment, friendship and actions.

  1. Hi Mark, I love this period of days when the number of the day speaks to the archetype of the day. JUN KAME, WUQUB KAME the test, the try us but we overcome ordeal, we survive death and dis ease…we live, we don’t join Death in Xibalba but that is what lonely death wants, death wants to be livened up by life for the Lords are so lonely and that why they try and test folks who enter Xibalba unprepared they want them to jointhe Lords of Death and Disease by joining Death by dying in Xibalba to remain lost to those who wait for them on the Face of the Earth death is sad but Christian interpretation makes Death evil despite death being mad because sad turns mad when people can’t face the sadness of death and disease 6 Above and Belove plus the 4 corners or 4 cardinals …..thanks

  2. I often think of the Lords Kame as the testers of the hero. They are like the villains in the movie, especially with the way the Popol Vuh is written, you can almost imagine the crowd booing when they come onto the stage. However, they are just actors and without them there would be no quest, there would be no interest, there would be no contrast and the hero could never embrace their destiny as there would be no proving ground. They are an integral and hugely important part of the process of the maturing of the soul, the challenges, the fears are what makes life interesting. Overcoming the odds is where we actually prove ourselves, and brings out our hero
