Greetings Beloved Kin,

9 Wind / IK

Peak Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the bigger picture. When a work is “finished” a Common thought is to stand back to take it in. It’s said that failing to follow this step holds the potential for suffering due to the lack of Divine Insight.

Number 9 is the symbol of the whole investment from the “lower place” that manifests the “higher one” (10). Tone 10 of Manifestation symbolizes the value of a Hand Below and a Hand Above.

Wind/IK represents the Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit. We breathe and are breathed by the Creator. The glyph illustrates the “T” as the portals carved in stone, a symbol of the Tree of Life. “Te” is a sacred word to the Maya as the sound of the Creator’s first breath. The portals  magnify the Sound of the Wind and direct the Eye to See.

Symbols and Synchronicities were the first language. The Wind carries the Creator’s Voice. The Elders say to pay attention when the Wind speaks. “Stop to remember what you were thinking.” The Voice can speak as a gentle breeze,  a gust of wind at our back, or a fragrance. The Wind can move a flower to catch the Light in our peripheral vision. Follow the Wind. Stop to smell the roses. Wind can start a fire or put a fire out.

Number 9 is a symbol of 3 x 3, the exponential value of a Higher Power of Divine Trinity. Patience can reveal a Sign of Divine Providence. Destiny Kin 22, reflects the Master Number 22, a symbol of Human’s power to manifest every Dream of Divine Inspiration.

What we see depends on what we’re looking for.  When humans visit the pyramids, most eyes are trained on the top. There are 9 platforms that lead to the top of El Castillo. The platform at the top is the 10 for all 4 directions. 9 x 4 is 36, and the 10 creates a zero as the 360 degrees of the Creator’s Circle of Life. There’s always more to see. Pyramids point to the stars, yet we’re rarely inclined to look Above.

Look for Signs and Synchronicities to see the Truth of Divine Providence in your life. For the celebration of Easter I burned a pillar candle on the mantle, instead of the smaller tealights I ordinarily use. I’d added silk flowers to the wreath above. One caught fire and fell right into it. I only left the room for a few minutes to step outside, and noticed the candle was burned out in a very strange way when I came back. I choose to believe a Higher One saw the blaze and put it out for me.

Tone 9 reminds us that there’s always more to see. If we look beyond our first impression we can see the work of the Creator’s Hand in our life.  We can see a Bigger Picture when we look to the Laws of the Universe and the Truth of Cause and Effect.

It takes Time and an Intention of Vigilance to see the Truth that’s right in front of our face. In the Season of our Salvation we can Look for a sign of Divine Providence, no matter how small it may be.

The Cherokee Whirlwind is a symbol of the 13th Dancer in the realm of Spirit that leads the 12 Dancers in the down below. Human (the 12) is gathered by a Higher One to the realm of Spirit, through every Ascension to become the 13th Tribe, Above.

In every breath, the Element of Air connects the Collective Consciousness of the whole. There are many voices we could follow. Huracán is god of Wind that stands on one leg with the Power over the Wind, Storm and Fire. We will know the Truth of the Creator’s Voice when we listen for the Sound of Love. When we follow, the Heart of Sky will hold us in the eye of every storm where we can abide in Peace beyond Understanding.

There is a Divine One watching over you and me.

love, in lak’ech,

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

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.

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.
