8 Wind/IK – Breath of God

Greeting, KIN,

8 wind ik

8 Wind/IK (Whirlwind)

The Eagle/MEN trecena is guiding us to higher spiritual planes where God is calling us to see the truth of our own divinity. Where there is power, so is there the greater potential for its corruption.

The purpose of our spiritual journey is to prepare us to carry our light in to the world. We will be made ready through the purification of Wind/IK as the healing Breath of God.

Today’s Daykeeper Journal shares inspiration from Spirit and today’s post to the 13-Day Trecena guide offers practical guidance for the observance of this day.


8 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)

Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.

Wind/IK: Breath of Spirit, breath of life. Winds embody the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. Dreamers and planners with powerful imaginations, Wind persons make great orators and they spread the word of spiritual inspiration as it is carried by the wind. Wind is the power behind the movement of natural cycles such as weather, erosion, and cultural change. As the wind, these persons are extremely changeable and adaptable. They may appear inconsistent or fickle to others. Wind can be destructive to self and others by putting on airs. When Winds strut and boast, expanding on facts and accomplishments, they are building the dark clouds of trouble that may become hurricanes.

Breath of God

The K’iche’ Maya considered the 8th and 9th Tones as Holy days with Eight being the most sacred number. They define Eight as a solar number and the number of pure spirit. The Tzolk’in/Chol’qiij calendar festivals are observed on these days – the most important being the 8 B’aatz (Monkey/CHUEN) Maya New Year celebration, a day of spiritual initiations. 8 Wind/IK marks the observance of a Holy day of purification.

Galactic Tone 8 is the tone of karmic justice. This is an important day to look within. We must see where darkness still resides and bring it to the light, for justice will be served. Wind/IK provides the way through the breath of healing and purification.

If our thinking tells us we have everything in line, we haven’t looked deep enough. Thinking we are unblemished is a lie harbored by our ego. There is danger in our ignorance for justice will be blind and served by the discernment of the facts, apart from our awareness of it.

Receive Wind/IK as the healing breath of our Creator. As we are made pure, we are lifted above any judgment of the world that could cast a shadow upon our highest intentions.

The Cherokee called it the Whirlwind, symbolized by a double-helix of rising smoke that connects us to the Divine. Whirlwind is considered to dwell among the trees on the mountain side, where the trembling of the leaves always gives the first intimation of its presence. We can seek to see Wind’s presence and feel its power to receive the Breath of God.

To all my relations, may we find the darkness within that still needs brought to light. We needn’t worry that something is overlooked for Divine Spirit can see the purity of our intention. As we see the evidence of Wind’s presence in nature, may we recognize it as the breath of God.

In lak’ech, I am another you
