Yaponcha- Hopi- Moderation
Yaponcha dwells at the foot of Sunset Crater in the crack of black rock.
If Yaponcha shows up in your life, it is possible that winds have been blowing incessantly in your life, and you are now ready for a change. It’s time to restore balance in your life.
In Hopi lore, the people of the village were distraught; their crops wouldn’t grow because Yaponcha’s energy wouldn’t allow their seeds to sprout. Two little fellows were sent to talk to him. After traveling for several days, they reached the mountain where Yaponcha resided. After sealing the crack in the rock with corn meal mush to prevent him from blowing, they were quite proud of themselves. Within days of their victory, the air in the village became dry and hot. Soon the villagers felt suffocated and realized that moderation is the key to growing healthy crops and a maintaining a vibrant community. The little fellows were sent back to the crater to remove some of the corn meal, so that the proper amount of wind would reach the village.Ever since that day, the Yaponcha has blown just enough to keep the people happy without destroying their crops.Click To Tweet

Have the seeds you planted, failed to grow corn? Y aponcha’s swirl comes as a reminder of gratitude. Signs may be as subtle as a fallen feather, a light breeze, or unexpected phone call. Harmony for the community may require a personal sacrifice.
