Holy Creator, and Breath of Life,

Teach me to give thanks in ALL things. I choose to live without regrets for the experiences of Life that lead to a Divine Future.

Help me see beyond the veil to know “all that is” and “all that is not” is offered on behalf of a Dream for “what is promised to be.” Thank you for the Breath of Life given for another day, and the choice to create a Dream for Tomorrow. Thank you for the Beauty that is offered in every moment and open my eyes to see.

Clear my mind of old thoughts and fears that no longer serve me. May every moment be my Offering as the witness to your Divine End. Thank you for Love that exceeds all my Human limitations.

Amen, Amen, Amen


“I am the LORD your God; I strengthen you and tell you, ‘Do not be afraid; I will heal you.'” Isaiah 41.13

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.

[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. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
