This week I am going to Los Angeles to participate in a march. I AM CALLED to attend this political rally, and up until now, I was unsure regarding my personal mission and vision for this event. This morning, while working with a client, we pulled a wind from the Winds of Spirit deck, and Kari appeared to help us with these turbulent winds of change.
I am going to stand with my sisters and brothers for Human Rights, because:
Five Minute Meditation
To Evoke the Winds of Perfect Expressions
Call to Kari three times, while asking how you can be of service to these challenging times of change. I did this twice. The first time through was to get an overview of the landscape; the second time through I asked, “how to be of service.” Both visions offered insight, still the second meditation proved to be a game changer.
Kari arrives as a thunderous wind, a reminder of how the power of language connects you to everything that came before, and all that will follow. Like the wind that makes music when it rustles through the leaves of a tree, our breath creates music when it is forced through the reed of a clarinet, or across the opening of our lips as we speak. This kind of friction relates to the energy of Kari, which teaches us to create something beautiful from life through verbal expression.
Although you may feel frantic when Kari blows in from the southern quadrant, it is important to remain emotionally centered, calm, and balanced. Emotions may be raw, leaving you feeling exposed, covered only by a bark cloth. Take daily walks in nature, exercise, and seek wise counsel. If you surrender to the energy and wise counsel of Kari, you will learn how to “go with the flow” and adapt to change. Savor the sweetness of the ripe, low-hanging fruit of the jungle.
Be mindful of the words you speak when conflicting emotions run high. Words can be like bows with poisoned arrows that leave indelible scars and permanently damage relationships.

Amunet is Egyptian Goddess of the air and invisibility. Although she has shape-shifted over the course of several thousands years, she is considered to be the feminine aspect of the Egyptian Creator God, Amun.
No matter what side of the power pyramid you are standing on this week, the winds of change are blowing strong. Cover your face with a scarf, because no one can predict what next week’s wind storm will conjure up. The Presidential Inauguration is on the horizon, and Human Rights marches will be taking place across America. Everyone has a unique perspective. Most are keeping their views silent, lest they get ridiculed. While some are joyfully embracing change, others will be marching in the streets in protest. Something hidden will be revealed in the coming week.
Truth lies somewhere in the rocky earth, lodged between our steadfast ideas of right and wrong. This is not the time to hold onto old crystallized thoughts, and they are not to be used as battering rams. Be open to new and unexpected ideas.
Now is the time, to explore the deep wind caverns of your hidden thoughts and ideas. Consider this week’s mission as being your time to delve deeply into a new Pyramid. Become your own anthropologist, dedicated to putting the pieces back together one fragment at a time. Leave no rock un-turned. Become a methodical collector of your own ideas, as you build a statue of truth you can live with.Be prepared for a divine revelation.Click To Tweet
Obscured meanings arrive upon the words and breath of the morning wind. In the Old Kingdom, the word priest meant, she/he who “carries the papyrus roll; “ there were magical powers in the divine words.[i] Many hieroglyphs show women offering prayers and performing rituals. This may be the perfect time to begin a writing project and share your message with others.
If you are struggling, Amaunet can assist you. Consciously place your awareness on the essence of your breath and thoughts. Watch as words shift in and out of your mind. Do not look for meanings; the answers you seek lie waiting in the gaps between your thoughts.. Reflect on the wisdom of these spaces before making a decision or beginning a new project.

Magic is in the air when the Finnish Wind of Invention arrives from the Cold North. This week’s Winds of Spirit is Ilmarinen, who will provide you with the creative burst of energy you need to bolster your community and fill your spiritual coffers with warmth.
For me the magic came when I decided to take the Gratitude Challenge. Within days, a community of over 100 people gathered around the circle to catch the winds of grace. This is how the North Wind works. Spirit and the Community are the required buy-ins that make it possible for lofty ideas to manifest and blow throughout the land. Without agreement and cooperation, your hard work is a top, that temporarily spins in a circle, flounders, and topples. For ten years, I tried to establish a healing center in my town. Because it never grew the roots needed for long term survival, it had limited success. The missing ingredient for enduring success was the power and magic of community consensus.
Our ancestors survived the North Wind’s ice and storms by staying huddled by the central fire, singing songs and telling stories. People learned to get along, despite their creative differences. The community gratitude challenge offers global support. Each person’s individual thankfulness prayer the wood, that keeps the light bright, and the fire burning hot.
Alchemy is the key ingredient of the Kalevala (cal-e-vala), an epic tale of the Finnish people who lived along the coast of the Baltic Sea, in the North Western corner of Russia. Finno-Ugric mythology has endured the test of time; music and poetry live on as everlasting reminders of the magic that transpires when humans live in harmony with nature.
When Ilmarinen “sets the four winds blowing” in your life, alchemy is at play, yet be wary, of the cold waters. Nonetheless, now is time to take the plunge.
The cold Northerly Winds lured Ilmarinen to the dismal swamps of Lapland. In order to fulfill his dream, he left the comfort of his home to face death-defying challenges (often these are symbolic), which included two journeys into the underworld. Ask your inner shaman to help you discover your origins and reclaim your soul as well the soul of your community. As the protector of travel, Ilmarinen will guide and protect you as you venture there and back.
Only by cooperating with the forces of nature will you be able reclaim your personal power and magic. The Sampo was composed of the tip of a swan’s feather, the milk of a farrow cow, the fleece of a summer ewe and a tiny ear of barley, all which are all symbols of time. Tap in to the power of your personal medicine, adorn your altar with sacred objects, and restore your belief in the divine mystery.
Begin today. Take the Gratitude Challenge.
