1 Wind / IK – A New Mission of Spirit: Day 1 of 13

Happy Mayan Birthday to Minisa Crumbo Halsey, 1 Wind/IK

Minisa Crumbo Halsey


Minisa is my Higher Source of human discernment in the traditional Medicine Wheel path. Minisa’s heritage is Citizen Band Potawatomi of the Shawnee, OK agency and Muscogee Creek of the Okmulgee, OK agency.

Minisa is One with my connection to the Tzolk’in, the One who carried me through the Wind to my first Mayan teaching in San Diego. She has guided the Wisdom of the Medicine Wheel that’s led me since 2002.

It was Minisa that inspired the timing and dates that so perfectly aligned with Ian Lungold’s birthday. Now Wind/IK is beneath the wings that carry me back home. Thank you Minisa for a Gift of Consciousness that we Breathe and are Breathed by Divine Spirit!

Minisa shares her Breath of Spirit in her book Spirit Talk: a count of days that was the encouragement to write a journal. Minisa is an Artist, Teacher, Author, and Video Journalist, that connects me to the Medicine Circle in Oklahoma, where this Sunday will be a gathering to honor this Sacred Time in the Longhouse by traditions passed down through “Uncle Bear Heart,” the uncle that directed her traditional shaman path.

1 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13 days…

The MULUC trecena called us to Live our Lives from the realm of Spirit. We were Atoned through an Offering, an Intention to Pay Back and Pay Forward the Blessings of Divine Consciousness.

We Ascended in the Dawn of a New Awakening. By the Power of Wind/IK, we receive the Sacred Breath of Life and Spirit. Through a new dissemination of Divine Wisdom we’re prepared to step into the shoes of our new identity that holds a Higher Meaning and Purpose.


The Global Burner Day marks a shift of energy. It’s common to experience some “overload” on days building up to a Global Burner. You may find yourself over-stimulated, yet exhausted at the same time. Global Burner days are observed with Sacred Fire Ceremonies held by the Mayan priest on behalf of the Community, to burn off residual energy and restore Right Relationship. Today, Minisa leads a Fire Ceremony on the land in Oklahoma for a Gathering of the Medicine Wheel Circle. So are we invited to be One in Spirit on 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Sunday).

PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether – Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions. 1 Wind/IK is the only portal day in this trecena, though as the presiding Day Sign for this 13-day cycle, the Force of Wind will be magnified. Today, the Divine Inspiration from our Spiritual Gifts will be magnified.   

The Haab Year: The Year Bearer under the current Haab calendar year (planetary cycle) is 6 Deer/MANIK. The Haab reflects a cycle of Transformation on a planetary scale in the world around us. The Haab offers a planetary perspective of Time, Place, and Transformation on Mother Earth. 6 Deer/MANIK guides movement as the Mayan priest. MANIK brings the strength to stand in the Truth of our integrity. 6 Deer/MANIK resides in the Galactic Week of 1 Wind/IK. Years related to Wind/IK can change the landscape of our life. Wind/IK is the beginning of Creation and the Breath of a new life. We might as well expect some chaos, positioned for Wind’s Major Life Change.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Deer/MANIK- will guide a flow of movement as a Divine Agent.
  • 7 Star/LAMAT – will balance the Above and the Below. LAMAT, the sign of “pure luck” will multiply the Light of our Spiritual Effort to Abundance.
  • 8 Offering/MULUC – the Holy Day of “pure spirit” will transform us through Divine Justice, returning the Salvation that is earned by Offering to Live in Spirit.
  • 9 Dog/OC – uses the Peak Energy of Transformation to change us through a Deeper Understanding of Unconditional Love.

7 Wind / IK – Inheritance of Wisdom: Day 7 of 13


Wind / IK Glyph

7 Wind / IK Glyph

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 is the place of Balancing the “As Above, So Below.” Tone 7 is a place of an accounting to see “all that is, and all that is not.” The top of the pyramid illustrates the Peak of our Climb.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and Spirit, the Element of Air that relates to all the faculties of the mind. Air is the Element that connects us all. Through the Air the Spoken Words of the Creator manifested the Whole of Creation. The Element of Air reflects the fundamentals of our way to manifest Creation.

Our world is wholly a mental construct. Our entire experience of life on Earth is defined by our Perception of the Creation. We define the parameters of our own Happiness by the way we See it. When we Speak what we See in our mind, we manifest a Creation defined by our own Perception. We make it come true.

Our Breath is Sacred. Through Sacred Breath we Breathe and are Breathed by the Creator. Completing the 10th uinal of Manifestation, our Spiritual Eyes were opened to see that what we Claim is True is the substance of every Creation. Our Power to Manifest the Dream lies in what we Say is So.

13 Wind / IK – Ascension: Day 13


13 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13 we Ascend to a Higher Consciousness of Unconditional Love. Through the Wisdom of Experience we learned the challenges and opportunities to fulfill our Divine Meaning and Purpose. 13 is the number of Creation as the 7 days and 6 nights, and the symbol of a Covenant between the Above and the Below. In a Choice to Offer our Self to Serve the Intentions of Divine Will, the Creator promised that our Prayers for Help would be answered. Our Unlimited Power to Create the Experience of Love would be guaranteed by a Divine Intervention.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. The Cherokee Day Sign the Whirlwind represents the double-helix of smoke that rises on the Wind to carry our Prayers to the Creator. On 13 Wind/IK we Ascend with a Higher Consciousness that the Creator hears and responds to every prayer that calls for a Manifestation of Love. Our Human prayers for Love reflect the Divinity we share with the Creator, who Spoke the Intention of Love as Meaning and Purpose for a world Below. Our prayers of Love create the Harmony of Sound between the Above and Below that vibrate as the One Song of the Universe (uni-verse).

Human’s Highest Aspiration is to serve as the Creator’s Spoken Words of Love on Earth. Through Human, the Song of Unconditional Love could be heard and recognized by the world Below, as a gift that is beyond our Human capability to Give. In an Intention to share Love that doesn’t ask anything in return, we bear witness to the Divine Nature of Human, the evidence that we are guided by something greater than our Human instincts.

6 Wind / IK – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 6 of 13


6 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

The Earth/CABAN trecena offers Mother Earth as the Divine Place where we could experience a new reality of our own creation. CABAN is guiding us to Know our Place in the Universe.

Under the 8th uinal we began a transformation from Faith to Believing in Unconditional Love as our Power to Create our own Realities of Love. We were guided to see that our Love would Overflow through the Choice to Experience Unconditional Love. The 8th uinal offered the Divine Justice of Knowing that through the Creator’s Love we would always Receive More than our Hearts Can Hold.

The number 9 emphatically intends the Completion of our Transformation, conveying the energy of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. The Spiritual Growth in progress is an Intention to see where Human fits in to the Bigger Picture. Number 9 is the “all that is part of the One,” expressed as zero “0” (the position of Sun/AHAU, the Omega).

Today is Kin 162, which resolves to 9, in the 9th uinal, in the 9th month of September. Each repetition of the number magnifies its Intention. If we look into the future, on Tone 9 in this 9th uinal (another 999), we will receive the Spiritual Awakening of Serpent/CHICCHAN, the catalyst that “lights the fuse” of all our Spiritual Gifts. 9 CHICCHAN is also a Portal Day. Also in our future, our Ascension on Tone 13 is Offering/MULUC, the Day Sign of Atonement through an Offering, a personal Sacrifice. Mother Earth CABAN is turning us toward a new realization of our place in the Universe from the Higher Perspective of our Oneness with Every Thing. On 13 MULUC we will manifest a Miracle, made possible through a Divine Communion, Paying Back and Paying Forward the Love of Mother Earth. The Earth is a manifestation of the Creator’s Love.

The Wind/IK glyph illustrates the t-shaped portals the Maya carved in stone. The Mayan daykeeper, artist, and historian Hunbatz Men explains this as a symbol of the Sacred Tree of the world, the axis mundi upon which the shaman’s spirit may climb. It also functions as a portal leading to the Great Spirit, through which the breath of life may pass.

“A transcendental synthesis of human religious experience is inherent in the word te, Sacred Tree, which emerged from the words teol and teotl the names of God the Creator in Mayan and Nahuatl. These most revered and sacred words of the ancient people, symbolized by the Sacred Tree, were represented in the Mayan hieroglyphs as the symbol ‘T.’ Additionally, this symbol represented the air, the wind, the divine breath of God.”  [Source]  FYI – How does “te” feel when you say it?

12 Wind / IK – Dawn of Creation: Day 12 of 13


12 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 offers a gift of Retrospection for the Intention of Understanding. Looking back on our experience, all the pieces are drawn together. This is a day when Knowledge Moves from the Head to the Heart.

The Monkey/CHUEN trecena guided the Dawn of a new Creation. In the Creative Void we imagined everything we would Choose to Be, if we could start all over again. We Chose the Truth we would hold in our Imagination and took a Leap of Faith. The Creator was there to complete what we were unable to do for our Self.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and Spirit. Winds hold the power of dissemination. Those born Wind are Dreamers and Planners with powerful imaginations. The Element of Air relates to the faculties of the mind. The force of Wind that has the power to change the landscape, can also complete our own Change of Mind.

5 Wind / IK – Living On Purpose: Day 5 of 13


5 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 is a day of a Spiritual Empowerment. 5 represents the center of the cube, “an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications, materials, knowledge and application.” Tone 5 gives us the discernment to investigate, and to discern the Heart of the matter.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life, the Breath of Spirit, the Breath that Spoke Creation. The Creator saw perfection in the Dream that was Created. A Divine Consciousness took time to rest between steps to say, “This is Good.”

Wind/IK resides in the North, the place of ALL Wisdom, the Wisdom of our Experience, and the Wisdom of All the Ascended Masters who came before. The Creator manifested North (Above) as the place where All thoughts would be preserved as the One Consciousness of Divine Wisdom. In the image of the Creator, we were created with the Resource of Knowing. Wind/IK holds the Element of Air, which relates to the faculties of the Human mind and the Power of our Consciousness to Know.

11 Wind / IK – Road to a New Destiny: Day 11 of 13


11 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 offers us an Intention of Resolution to bring clarity to a new understanding. 11 offers the energy of Dynamic Action that Facilitates our Change. Through a modification and simplification of understanding, we can see our role and place in the Universe.

Tone 11 is the day the shaman climb to the Highest Altar. Bringing an Offering, they are Atoned with Creator. In the One Mind of Divine Consciousness, our place will become clear for us to Resolve a way to make our Journey through life.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit, reflecting the Power of our Voice and the Spoken Word. Through Sacred Breath the Creator commanded Creation. Road/EB is showing us how, holding a Spark of the Creator’s identity, we have the Power to command our own Destiny.

Wind holds the power of dissemination and planting of good seeds or ideas. The Cherokee Whirlwind is the double-helix of smoke that carries our prayers heavenward. The Element of Air is the Womb of Ether within which we are always connected to each other. The Earth’s atmosphere, like a womb, is a place we are held together within a Divine Creation. Air is our most fundamental resource for Life.

Wind/IK resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom from Above. In the North is held the Collective Wisdom of those that came before. The North and the Element of Air relate to the faculties of the mind, our gift of Consciousness, Intellect, and Imagination. In a realm of Oneness, the Creator holds our minds, just as the Mother held our bodies in the womb.
