MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
I apologize for the two late posts this week. I didn’t push the right button. I thought of you in different time zones who wouldn’t get it til the day was half over. You’re the first faces I see in the morning. I felt like I missed breakfast around a kitchen table.
Tone 4 holds the energy of Stability. Number 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms, establishing volume defined by dimensions of height, length, depth and breadth. Tone 4 establishes a sense of orientation, setting the freedom and boundaries for interaction and relationship.
Wind/IK offers a new Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit. We draw new Life to our Spirit through a Gift of Sacred Breath. Air is the Element that connects us all. With each breath we share our gift of Life and the Elements of our Being. The parameters of relationship with one another reaches in all directions within the atmosphere of Mother Earth. We are all One within the womb of her Spirit.
The Element of Air represents the faculties of the mind. We are connected in all the ways we draw Wisdom from Mother Earth. The Cherokee Whirlwind, represents the double-helix of smoke that carries our prayers to the Creator, and a symbol of the 13th Dancer, the Ascended One who leads the Whole.
Residing in the direction of the North, Wind/IK represents Wisdom and the Ascended Masters. Just as our Breath is One in the parameters of the Earth’s atmosphere, so are our thoughts One in the Collective Consciousness that is contained within the same boundary. Through the Breath of Spirit, we draw upon the thoughts and inspiration of others. On the out-breath, we exchange the particles of our Spirit with the Whole of creation. We breathe and are breathed by Spirit.
Breath is the foundational evidence of Life. When we are born, our lives hang in the balance, until we take our first breath. Wind/IK raises Consciousness to the Spirit we draw through each Sacred Breath. When we draw breath with the Consciousness of the Spirit it contains, we bring New Life to our Spirit.
Breath can raise the vibration of our Spirit. Breath work has been a part of Spiritual Practice employed by all faiths down through history. Hymns sung in church are measured breaths that raise the vibration of Divine Consciousness. Through Sacred Breath we enhance our own ability for Divine Discernment.
The Element of Air, carried the Spoken words of Creation. The Wind/IK glyph illustrates the T shaped portals carved in stone that magnified the sound of the Wind, and framed a Vision of the Stars. Wind and the Consciousness of the Mind are the Elements through which we carry on a Divine Conversation with the Creator.
The Elders guide us to Listen to the Wind and to Acknowledge its Movement. The Creator can speak to us through the Wind, the touch of a gentle breeze, or the sound of rustling leaves. The Elders say to draw awareness to our own thoughts whenever the Wind captures our attention.
Wind is also a Powerful Force that can change the landscape of our lives. Wind/IK is capable to push us in a new direction and create changes that require us to move in a new way. A Powerful Wind can stir up the Chaos to manifest a new Major Life Change.
Wind/IK can become the medium through which we can discern our Divine Direction. We can move forward with the Wind at our back. We can manifest the Dream we Love by holding Faith in the Power of Spirit to guide us there.
We can use Sacred Breath to Elevate our Consciousness of Oneness and as a Spiritual Tool for Healing. We can direct an in-breath to places that need of healing, drawing the Light of Spirit. Exhaling that which we release with a Blessing.
Wind/IK calls us to the Natural World to feel the wind in our hair, the touch of a gentle breeze, or the sound of the leaves rustling in the trees.
Wind/IK holds the Power of Dissemination. IK can draw us to the One Mind of Divine Consciousness for the renewal of our Hearts, Minds, Bodies, and Spirit.
Divine Inspiration is offered by the Creator for the benefit of the Whole. In the way of the world, bright ideas are protected by patents that prevent them from being shared for personal interest and advantage. The Creator’s Intention of Divine Justice means that we would share in the interest of Harmony and Equity.
In the 1970’s scientific researchers established the hypothetical phenomenon they called the “Hundredth Monkey Effect.” Conducting a study of the macaque monkeys in Japan, scientists observed that these monkeys learned to wash sweet potatoes. Gradually, this new behavior spread to younger generations through observation and repetition. They observed that once a critical number of monkeys was reached (ie. the hundredth monkey), the behavior that was learned by the first monkeys, was adopted instantly by other monkeys that were isolated on nearby islands. The theory supports the concept of a Collective Mind of Consciousness and the Power of our Thoughts to influence one another.
The Whole of Humanity is the scion of the Creator, the first descendant of Divinity. In perfect harmony, Together, we are the One the world has been waiting for. Salvation is the Creation we will manifest together.
To all my relations, may we expand our own field of Consciousness to acknowledge the One Consciousness of the Whole. May we Know we are One in every breath we take. May we build a foundation together, Acknowledging the Power we Share as One. My we listen for the Wind that will disseminate our Divine Thoughts to one another. May we pray for the Whole, including our Self. Above all, may we pray for the Children. May we use our Collective Power to draw the Breath of Life and Hope to their Spirits. May they exist under the Wing of the Almighty.
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Wind/IK (Cherokee, Whirlwind/AGALU’GA)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
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.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
