Along the invisible ceque lines are sequences of mountains, rocks, outcroppings, caves and stone fortes that are aligned to the astrological cycles. Hundreds of Haucas (holy places) dot the landscape of the Tahuantinsuyu, which is comprised of four suyus (geographical areas).
Haucas can incorporate themselves in many different forms such as people, birds and wind. Winds disseminated from these entities can be benevolent, disruptive, or deadly.

Apus (mountain lords’) serve as intermediaries between paqos, the Gods/Goddesses and the winds. There are many types of wind energies circulating throughout the Andes, including Wayramama, the mother of the sky who is envisioned as a great serpent that moves with a great wind. “It is said in the Amazon that when she takes a bath, the sound of thunder is heard between the clouds, but no rain will fall
All living things are animated with spirit. This concept is the sacred seed of reciprocity, today for me, tomorrow for you. From this core principle of Anyi, all actions flow, radiating outward from the heart, like the ceque lines found in the temple of the sun. Anyi also ensures survival. Growing potatoes on shallow terraces stacked along steep mountain cliffs requires support from others; all selfless actions are complimentary; today you receive, so tomorrow you must give back.
When Wayramama appears in your life you are being called to take direct action that will elicit an acute awareness of the natural order in your life.

When Wayramama appears in the East, she is ushering in a rebirth of thought. When the missionaries brought Christianity into Peru, some beliefs were complimentary, and easily integrated, while others, like original sin, did not fit with their beliefs and were rejected. Christian statues were embraced as if they were alive with kawsay (life force energy). Now is the time to listen to, and lead with your heart; look for the aliveness in all things, allow your mind to shape shift your memories and dreams into a practical living reality.
In the contrary position Wayramama can be mal viento, creating confusion, chaos and doubt. Like your Andean brothers and sisters, look to nature to provide you with the proper spiritual guidance.
When mother wind appears in the South, examine how you are expressing yourself and transmitting energy into the world around you. Are you giving and receiving in a balanced manner, or are you leaking energy? A reciprocal transfer of energy is necessary if a transaction is to be successful.
If the furious winds of the Wayramama appear in the contrary position it is time to take examine your less desirable traits. Thievery, deceit, laziness and incest create hucha (heavy energies,) and discord. Now is the time to forgive yourself and others so that you may restore balance in your life.
If the wind currents of Wayramama appear in the West, a death of some kind is imminent. Death can take many forms; the ending of a job or relationship, a physical death, or the death of an outmoded idea or behavior. Lighten your load, clear your energy, and make room for a transformation.
If you have not cleared your hucha, Wayramama may appear as a Machu Wayra, bringing illness or inclement weather. Often, physical symptoms will appear in order to bring about a needed change. In Peru, shamans are recognized and chosen when they are struck by lightning. Are you answering the call in your life?
Wayramama arrives in the north to remind you that being, and doing, must meld together as a single process. It is time to return to the source and fertilize your dreams. Take a hike to the top of a mountain where the stream originates, and offer a prayer of gratitude to the Huaca.
When your dreams are not reflecting your desires, Wayramama may be blowing in reverse. It is time to exercise the proper use of power. Exhale and release all of your doubts, fears and disappointments into a blade of grass, and allow the Wayramama to carry them away.
