9 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the bigger picture. When a work is “finished” we stand back to take it in.

Beyond the details we can see the Truth of Cause and Effect. We can’t hold an intention to Love without creating Beauty inside and out. There is said to be potential suffering to bear for lack of insight if we fail to take this step. Whether we see success or failure, we grow stronger through the experience.

Wind/IK represents the Heart of Sky, Huracan. IK is the Whirlwind of Life created from a Divine Breath. The Element of Air represents our thoughts, consciousness, and the faculties of the mind. The Wind carries the Voice of the Creator. The Elders say to Listen to the Wind when it catches your attention.

The Wind/IK glyph illustrates the “T” portal that is carved in stone. The purpose was to magnify the Sound of the Wind and to direct vision to a pre-determined location. The “T” represents the Tree of Life. “Te” is a sacred word to the Maya as the Sound of the first breath of Creation. On days led by IK the Creator can share the Truth of a Divine Meaning and Purpose for every creation that intends the Highest Good for the Whole.


Wind/IK reminds us of a Divine Creator who holds the First and Last word for every Creation of Divinity. IK shares the Truth of Authority, a thought that inspires us to carry on for a Divine Purpose. IK holds the Power to change the whole landscape of our Life. IK’s Truth can return a divine order out of chaos that strikes like an Act of God.

A Divine Creator will always “finish” a Creation of Love so the Truth of the Intention is seen and acknowledged from a beginning to an end.

Wind/IK resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom. There is Truth to see in the end that was Unseen at the beginning. Today we can take our own Truth to heart.  Love doesn’t guarantee an end of Right Relationship with another Human Being, though it always manifests the Truth that Love was our Intention from the beginning to an end.

May we feel the Wind at our Back and know the Truth of a Divine Power that will always stand in our corner. No one else has to see to know our Love mattered to the One Above.

in lak’ech, i am another you,

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

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. 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.
