MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena when we begin a new phase of Transformation. A Divine Agency works on our behalf to seat the Truth of a new Understanding. The Intention of Tone 8 is to administer the Justice of Harmony and Equity.
Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. Wind is capable to disseminate our Dreams for the planting of our Seeds of Intention. The Element of Air carried the Creator’s Voice that Spoke the World into Creation. Wind amplifies the Voice of the Creator, and lifts the Smoke of our Prayers. Through Wind, we are connected to the One and All.
Wind/IK offers the Divine Justice that every Human would be equally capable to engage in a Communion with the Creator. Every Human was created with the ability to discern the Creator’s Voice.
The Cherokee Day Sign, Whirlwind reflects the Whirling of Life and the Breath of the Universe that carries our prayers to the Creator. In our Highest State of Being we will Know our Prayers are heard, and Master the Discernment of the Creator’s Voice.
Humans all share the same Highest Aspiration. We long to be reconnected, to overcome our Feelings of Separation. Wind/IK can draw our awareness to the Element that Connects us all with each breath we take. Our Collective Prayers are heard by the Creator as a Cry to be made worthy to Know our own Source of Creation. Our effort of Transformation holds the Dream of a Revelation that would Answer Life’s Mysteries and Prove the Truth that our own Justice will be served under a Divine Authority. Just as the Creator’s Highest Intention is Justice and Equality, so does Human dream of fairness and equality.
Today, through the Element of Air, a Voice of Divine Spirit can be heard that would raise our Consciousness to the Truth that our Prayers have been Heard. No Aspiration is Higher than our Desire to be in Relationship with the Creator, and to Know the Truth of our Correspondence. Wind/IK carries a purpose for us to know that our thoughts and prayers have been heard.
Wind/IK can elevate our understanding of our own Divine Intentions. Only as we invest our effort to make a Dream come true, can the Creator Discern our True Passion. Our Prayers are clear when a Dream is born by our own movement forward. Through the effort of our Spiritual Climb, we demonstrate the Passion of our Intention. Our own movement evidences the Love of the Dream we follow.
As our Two Sides work together, we accomplish more than bringing our Sorrow. As we break through the illusion of our Lower Self, we will see that we are always being drawn to what we would Love.
Wind/IK is capable to magnify our Divine Discernment of our Voice of Creation. Atoned with the Creator the Divine Justice we are promised is that our Dreams of Love and Happiness of the Whole is a Creation we are most capable to manifest. Through a direct communication, we can see the Truth of the Creator’s presence every day.
Though the air between us is invisible, the evidence of its presence can be seen and felt. Wind/IK calls us to look for its movement, to feel its touch, and to consider its power to change an entire landscape. Wind is capable to change directions quickly. Wind fulfilled the Intention of Creation in the moment the Creator’s words were spoken.
Today we have an opportunity to be changed quickly. We’ve completed an important climb and the Creator knows our Human need for Encouragement and Proof of our own Accomplishment. We weren’t meant to be kept in the dark. Our inherent longing was Seeded in our Heart, for the purpose of its own Divine Justice.
To all my relations, may we turn our Consciousness to the Creator through Sacred Breath, and draw a Breath of Life and Purification. May we listen for the sounds of life carried on the wind, remembering we are One sharing the same Breath of the Creator. May we give thanks for a Creator who considered Human’s Happiness and who Breathed that Dream to Life. May we acknowledge with our gratitude, the Divine Agency that intervenes on our behalf so we would Experience Our Gift of Divine Justice.

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.
Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA: Whirlwind’s symbol is a double spiral helix in rising smoke. Wind brings energy for an Inquiring mind, learning and wisdom. In Cherokee, the constellations are represented by 12 birds (dancers), the 13th bird is the Whirlwind, the lead dancer. This reflects the whirling of life. Wind is the breath of the Universe (matching the Mayan symbol) channel of communication and carries the Sacred Smoke to the Great Spirit (Source- Hunab Ku in Mayan); matches the pulse of the breath of the Cosmos.
