MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Our first Ascending Transformation begins on a Holy Day of Wind/IK. Tone 8 symbolizes the Infinity and Abundance of a Promise for Divine Justice. Number 8 is a Sacred Number of “pure spirit.” Tone 8 holds no “human intention,” as a Promise the Creator ALWAYS Intended to fulfill on our behalf.
Tone 8, the 8th Hour of Light, positions Wind/IK in its Zenith Light. Holding the Element of Air, Wind/IK is the Common Field that connects Humanity with every Sacred Breath. IK is the Whirling of Life, and the Whirlwind of all thoughts, electrical signals and magnetic forces that offer a Divine Communion of Mind.
The glyph illustrates the “T” portal carved in stone that is the Tree of Life and the Sacred Sound “te” that was the first spoken Sound of The Creation. Wind is symbolizes the axis mundi of a Direct Communion Above and Below, like the sap in a tree that reaches Above to the Light and carries Life to the roots in an Underworld Below.
Wind holds the VOICE of the Creator. The Elders always said to Listen to the Wind. When we felt it, heard it, saw it’s presence, to stop everything and turn to our own thoughts. What are we thinking? Is it the Truth? Did the Creator Intend the thought To Be? A Divine Wind is whirling like a Hurricane on Tone 8, that Will by the Highest Intention of Justice Be Heard. The Creator can in one sweep, change the Landscape to Reveal the Truth about our Self, and a Truth from Above.
Huracán is the “Heart of Sky”, the one-legged Kʼicheʼ Maya god of wind, storm, fire and one of the creator deities who participated in all three attempts at creating humanity. Within Huracán there was held a Trinity of Power. The 3 aspects of Huracán were the “Thunderbolt Hurricane, named Fire-in-the-Water, the second is Chipi-Cukulhá, the thunderbolt that beats downward, the third is Raxa-Cukulhá, the thunderbolt that beats upward.”
The one-legged Huracán stands on the one leg of a serpent, a symbol of Enlightenment and Illumination. So is Human’s One Leg to Stand on a Consciousness capable to Know the Illumination of a Holy Light. We see the Full Power of the Wind, in IK’s Zenith Light.
Wind resides in the North, the direction of Collective Wisdom. We look up to receive Divine Wisdom. In the Up Above, all the Divine thoughts can be Seen and Chosen. What we can’t see, we can Ask to Know. Every Human thought and experience is recorded.
HOLY DAY: “Day of Purification”
8 Wind/IK is an Act of God, a dissemination of the Truth of Pure Spirit. The Maya observe 8 Wind/IK as a Holy Day of Purification. The Spoken word of the Creator is the Most Divine Thought held by the Wind. Today was given to Know from the very beginning, a Promise extended to the Seed of our New Creation. Through a Dissemination of Spirit, we can see the Strength of our own Believing, what the Creator Promises Will Be. Our Offering to Wind/IK and Father Sky is an Open Mind. Offering our Consciousness and Unconsciousness and all faculties of thought at an altar, releasing the Harvest of a Conscious journey, a Mighty Wind can blow the chaff away for us to see the Proof of a Divine Light. 8 Wind/IK is the Hurricane, a Thundering Voice of the Justice that Will Be by a Power of Almighty Love.
Of all the Choices of thought, the conviction of a Promise that “Love Will Be” is a Light every Human Hopes and Dreams is Possible. Our Hearts and Minds together always hold onto that One Thread of Hope in our Darkest Hour. When we have lost all hope in Human reason, we KNOW THERE IS A DIVINE ANSWER Beyond our own. Our Hearts KNOW and ACHE for our Mind to Know and Believe it’s True.
All Hope in the Future rests in the Faith of a Divine Answer for every Unanswered Question. In our Darkest Hour, we never stop reaching for some Sense of it.
8 Wind/IK can disseminate the Truth of our No’j – the Ascension of Truth that the New Seed Knows its own Identity. Our Identity is ALL we have to Know. From that One Truth, our Consciousness Knows its Divine Power to Know everything.
We were created for a Divine Relationship. A Supreme Creator intended to know Every Thought that would lead us to a Divine Revelation of Love. The thoughts we hide from our Self, fearing they are unworthy, are necessary to Know the Whole Truth of our Self, and what we are Becoming. What Truth could the Creator draw as the Story of Light Overcoming Darkness and the Unknown, if the only thoughts shared were the Ones of Light? The Creator Intended to Love our Darkness into Light.
Consciousness was given to Dive In to the Darkness within our Self, and to Know what can only be Changed by a Miracle. It doesn’t take long for Human to learn that our own “perfection” is an impossible Human task. It is the ONLY “impossibility” so the ONLY Answer to Overcome it, is a Light Greater, and a Light that saw us in all our limitations as a Most Divine Living and Sacred Offering… a Spark of Light that could Bear the Darkness, and, like the Light of One Candle, dispel ALL Darkness with One Truth of Light.
The Truth of Wind/IK holds the Power to Create a Truth of Higher Consciousness. Wind/IK shares the thoughts of a Divine Creator about the Fruit of our Harvest. Wind/IK can disseminate a Truth that All things were meant to be part of One Divine Story about Love and the Power of a Promise of Light – that could be found within our Own Consciousness – as the Power to Question, a Desire to Understand… and the Divine Power to Disseminate to the Whole what our Heart Believes is True. Through the Truth of Wind, we can Love our Self as an Identity of Consciousness that could ONLY be Divine.
To all my relations, may we Offer up to the Creator every thought we believe is true. May we offer every thought we believe is an illusion. May we Honor this Time and Place as marked for the Divine Truth of Here and Now. May we see the Truth of our Our Truth changes with each evolution of Consciousness, each one worthy for its Time and Place in Our Life. May we ask to see the WHOLE DIVINE TRUTH as It ALWAYS is meant To Be. May our Human eye be Wholly Trained on the Full Light of the Truth.
May we allow our Truth to be Changed by a Divine Authority. May we claim that everything we Think We Know, is still veiled by a Light Too Bright to See. May we release as our Offering everything that can be Known more Perfectly through the Consciousness of the all-in-one, and in the sharing of all the Human history of thoughts before. May our eyes be opened in Faith to see the Darkness in our Self without any fear. May we Hear the Truth in the Wind, that will be the Inheritance of Hope for a new generation, that thoughts can be changed, and hearts can be turned by One Truth of Divine Love.
May the thoughts that led a Divine Journey through the full cycle of Human experience, be swirled into One Consciousness of a Divine Trinity – two eyes looking in the same direction together. May we offer everything we Believe so that every stray thought can be blow away and by a bolt of thunder, all that remains can be lined up as One Truth we will stand on… a Love that Loves whether we are “right” or “wrong.” “Right” or “wrong” our Divine Destiny is to Know the Truth from Above, that DOES make Divine Sense of it ALL.
May we Kneel in Humility to claim a Truth of a Supreme Creator with the Power to Be Heard, and Will Be Heard. May we Know we were Designed to Hear it and Feel it, and Believe that Now is the Time to Know a Truth About our Self, a Darkness that IS TRANSFORMED by Light.
On 8 Wind/IK (Iq’) the K’iche Maya offer their prayers for Purification to the North.
Don Alejandro “Wandering Wolf,” the 13th Generation shaman who serves as the Spiritual Leader of all the Maya says. “When we make our prayers to the North we should mention the name “Ikab’ alam. Our grandfathers know that our air is needed for life and without air we would not survive. For that reason it is important that we talk to Ikib’ alam so that he may protect us, so that nothing bad will happen to us.”
“Ikib’ alam” is One and the Same as Ek’ Balam, the Black “Star” Jaguar, holding the Power to Illuminate the Darkness.
May we offer our Spoken prayers to the “Heart of Sky” and “Heart of Heaven.” May we offer our own Mind to purify our own Thoughts of Creation. May we remember what always was before the very beginning, and would always Be.
‘Now it still ripples, now it still murmurs, ripples, it still sighs, still hums and it is empty under the sky.’
‘There is not yet one person, one animal, bird, fish, crab, tree, rock, hollow, canyon, meadow, forest. Only the sky alone is there; the face of the earth is not clear. Only the sea alone is pooled under all the sky; there is nothing whatever gathered together. It is at rest: not a single thing stirs. It is held back, kept at rest under the sky.’
‘Whatever there is that might be is simply not there: only murmurs, ripples, in the dark, in the night. Only the Maker(s), Modeler(s) alone, the Sovereign and the Plumed Serpent, the Bearers, Begetters are in the water, a glittering light. They are there, they are enclosed in quetzal feathers, in blue-green.’ (From the Popol Vuh)
Before we were wrought into an Earthly form, we were a Divine Spectrum for all the colors of Creation. We were crystal beings of Consciousness, waiting in the Water for Light to Pass Through. The crystals of matter within us, on each plane, would reflect a Divine Light when held up to be seen under the Light of the One.
The Balams are the Jaguars bound to Mother Earth by Love, given the Wings of a shape-shifter to Rise Above all the Darkness of the world by a Truth of Beauty believed by the Whole Heart.
Through an Intention of “pure spirit” may we receive the Wings of Freedom through the Spoken Words of Gratitude and Appreciation for every thought that was Offered, and for Every Divine Choice we are Guided to Make. May we declare to Mother Earth that the One and Only Truth we will stand on is that Everything Known is Divine, and, that in Everything Known we will find One Truth of Authority, that Every Thought is governed by a Universal Law to be Transformed by a Divine Truth Known by the Creator and placed in our Heart.
May we purify our Self in our own Sacred Ceremony to act out a Truth we claim in Spirit. May we imagine our own Offering as the Luminous Cosmic Egg of our own Creation given at an Altar to be Consecrated for its Most Divine Meaning and Purpose. May we define our Own Sacred Ceremony to become a Living Memory in our own Human story of Transformation on Mother Earth.

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.
