1 - Wind (IK)

Dear Mayan Majix Friends,

Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Ik (Wind)

Day 222 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date:  January 3, 2011

Year Bearer:  11 Manik


Trecenas are thirteen-day periods in the Tzolkin. Each Trecena starts with the Number 1, but with
a different Day Glyph. As a wave of the Thirteen Heavens, the underlying energy is governed by
the First Day Glyph of the Trecena and influences all thirteen successive Day Glyphs. Being aware
of the predominant energy of the First Day of the Trecena, we can align our intentions with that
energy and allow our goals to manifest.


This Trecena starts with 1 Ik (Wind/Air) Spiritual Breath, Prana, Chi, Inspiration, Artistic Spark,
Vital Spirit Animating All Life.


On Mayan sculptures, the God of Rain or Storms is shown holding a T-Cross, the symbol for Ik,
God of Wind.  The wind brings the storm clouds and the rain and is symbolic of the breath of
life itself. The T-Cross shape is seen in ancient architecture throughout Mesoamerica and the
American Southwest. Some ancient codices of the Maya depict the tree of life as a T shape.
According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom, “trees and the air are intimately linked.
Without the symbiosis of trees and wind, there would be no life on earth, nothing to breathe.
What better symbol for the breath of life then, than the T-cross with its dual meaning of ‘tree’
and ‘breath’?”

Carlos Barrios in Book of Destiny says Ik “symbolizes the cleanliness and purity of glass. It is also
the windows in Mayan temples. These served a dual purpose. The first was to determine what
type of wind was blowing based on sound. Giant, vibrating flutes were placed on top of the
pyramids, and their music directly influenced those who heard it, altering their energy in a
positive way. The second purpose of the windows, which were aimed toward the four
cardinal points, was to observe and record equinoxes, solstices, and the transit of important
stars such as Venus and the Pleiades.”


Another representation of the Trecena is that of a creative wave beginning at 1 and ending
at 13, with the numbers 6, 7 and 8 representing the crest of the wave. The crest could be
interpreted as a strong influential energy, although the underlying influence on the Trecena
would still rest in the beginning
. In this Trecena, the crest falls on 6 Manik (Deer/Healing Hand),
7 Lamat (Star/Rabbit) and 8 Muluc (Water/Offering). The energy of Wind flowing to the crest
of the pyramid symbolizes the spirit of Deer as a healing hand, the spirit of Rabbit as
impulsiveness leading to good fortune, and the spirit of Water as Offering in Gratitude.
