Spirit in the Wind

Smoke of Our Prayers, by Debra Malmos (Photography and Digital Effects)

The Element of Air holds the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. We are One in every Sacred Breath we take.


One of the earliest known symbols of Sanctuary

Count Amadeo Avogadro of Turin introduced a very useful concept in 1811: a mole of any compound contains the Avogadro Number of molecules. This number is impossibly large by human standards: 6.02 x (10 to the power of 23). 10 to the power of 23 means 10 multiplied by itself 22 times. If we fully wrote out the Avogadro Number it is 602 followed by 21 zeros. This could also be described in words as six hundred and two thousand million million million. But this is of little help in conveying a mental picture of the actual size of the number.

The theorem of Caesar’s Last Breath helps us understand the immensity of the Avogadro Number. It states that every breath you take contains, on average, a molecule of the air that Julius Caesar (or indeed Christ, or Genghis Khan) exhaled as he died. Source: IrishTimes

In Lak’ech Ala K’in is the Mayan moral code meaning “You are my other me. What I do onto you, I do onto myself,” the Golden Rule.

Love and Prayers on behalf of the whole,

4 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

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.

Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength or character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness.

Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians.  Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Cherokee Totem Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions; shamanic abilities will open; multi-dimensional magic; healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth.  Conducive to pray for grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters and wives day. For wisdom at 4 Balances, cunning and protection of Mother Nature. To thank the Earth for sustenance. Ix is the native cunning, enterprising, vigorous, bold and realistic.

[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.
