The 4 Winds from the four directions are Message Bearers of Spirit.
The Wind God can be an angry god, but its great wisdom is through its service; the power of the Wind God is in its ability to activate the spirit within us. The Wind is the Breath of the Earth distributing elements from one place to another.

Our minds are tied to our breath. If we are anxious, with a racing mind, we breathe fast and shallow, whilst if we are breathing deeply and calmly, our minds are relaxed and transparent. The human mind, like the wind, helps communicate, clarify and separate the wheat from the chaff, but the real wisdom of the human mind is in being of service to the soul and spirit.
We access our spirit primarily through our feeling sense; the mind helps to refine the nature of our ability to feel – our most important sense.
Allow your mind to divide up, to analyse and to disseminate the energy within you to the four corners of your psyche. Allow it to separate the fundamental elements of Air, Water, Earth and Fire from the primal material you have generated in this timewave. The way forward will emerge organically.
Allow the energies of today to clear any confusion or refine any issue that feels like a coagulated lump of solid data.
Use the mind first to break down the lump of data, then let go of the mind.
Follow the body impulses, be directed by the Blood Lightning, the instinctive response, the first blink, that instant knowing as you are led by the breath of the ether. Or, we could say, the movement of light from outside your body to inside your cells.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 4 Wind:]
This is a reminder that the mind is our tool, not our master. The mind is the conveyor, not the source. The over-identification with data in certain quarters of society and the objective – aka ‘separated’ – dominant perception has led to the loss of consciousness.
To regain our consciousness of our most essential reality, we simply open our mind to the empirical and immediate sensations of the event, and to the experience of the moment.
The mind is one step behind the experience, so today be directed as if by a larger mind; call upon the mind of the subtle winds that circulate everywhere – even inside your home. The subtle winds are the ebbs and flows, wisps and breezes of the ether.
The foundation for breaking patterns and gaining a new freedom requires that you see the dominant issue – or perhaps problem – affecting you. Write it down in its separate components, and/or from different perspectives.
Then feel into the moment, the central space, and listen to the body instinct.
