Whirlwinds and Life balance

Tornadoes have been hitting the headlines a lot this year, and last year. Their violence rages across landscapes. They uproot trees, blow off rooftops, destroy houses, and worse: they kill. These violent breed of winds are tightly condensed forces of nature that consist of different elements. In the northern hemisphere, tornadoes spin counterclockwise but they spin clockwise in the southern hemisphere. Apart from the severe storm it is also vital to the planet we breathe.

Tornadic spirits

The Navajo Indians traditionally believed that whirlwinds and tornadoes are angry ghosts called "Chindi". Australian Aborigines also believed that tornadoes are unpleasant spirits of the dead called "whirly whirly". In the Middle East, such whirlwinds, especially dust devils, are considered demonic entites and genies. In ancient Greek mythology, the god Aeolus was a guardian, or keeper, of winds. Aura, Goddess of the breeze, was a beautiful but furious Titaness that slayed men and swallowed one of her sons. In Roman mythology, Tempestas is the goddess of violent wind and bad weather.  

Wind Turbines 

There are so many important advantages for having wind turbines. They're effective, clean, natural and provide lots of free energy. These are good for developing countries and they don't use recourses. There are no reasons against using wind turbines. The only problem with them is that people complain too much about them because of their appearance and noise. The turbines look like windmills and people have coexisted with mills for centuries. (Imho they look better than factories!). These windmills (turbines is what they all basically are) resemble the little plastic toy windmills that people have in their gardens or buy for their kids on the beach. I love the idea of wind power using wind turbines. I don't care if there's a few of them on my field. They look better than electric pylons, chimneys and phone masts out there now!

Spinning wheel vortex

The system of the vortex occurs in nature, when something is going underway. A vortex is like the channelling of air through an opened door or a window. A vortex is like a rotation of life passing across and moving elsewhere. The vast Milky Way is a vortext. The solar system moves on a wheel vortex. The universe spins. The sun always spins. Debris spins. Only gravity holds things down like glue. The vortex isn't bound by rules of gravity. Vortex is part of the supernatural, life, things that flow like air, water, light and sound. The symbol of the sun wheel turns clockwise. Wheels on cars and bikes turn counterclockwise as the motion is going forward and opposite.   

The Air Temple

Music and dance uses a controlled method of air. It's the same method for the development of whirlwinds except there aren't any clouds to stir up. It's from within. Creating a song and dance is the brewing excitement of energy. Then the release of burst energy through songs, music and performance comes. That is also an expression of the inner magic when you become part of the elements. The dancers play in unison while singers wail and call along a string of notes. This is a harmonious organic chime of spiritual winds that are made by people who put order from chas. Tornadoes are chaotic and violent. Singers and dancers are organised as well as gentle. The hardest and grubbiest genres of music is always part of the gentle whirlwind magic. However, some intoxicated rock star may clash in violence during a set!

Tapestries, like music and play, is a visual use of the same energy. Creativity made on a surface is the result of a whirlwind idea. Windchimes are a symbol of air made with Earth. Such light weight objects hang suspended and pick up a breeze, that plays them together and creates a music. Some can be made of wood, bamboo or metal. Musical instruments combine wind and air with mathematics. Tornadoes, hurricanes, sound, and even the arts all belong to the Air Temple.  

White Witchcraft

For those who work with white witchcraft, the power is a clockwise and harmonious show of affection and love is part of the glowing wind/air. They consist of spells for enchantments, health, medicine, healing, friendship, personal development and peaceful dreaming too. The understanding of magic is to view it as a small vortex. If you picture it as riding a bike, it will slow and stop of you give up peddling.

Everyone has a physical vortex, called Chakra, or "wheel", found on many parts of our bodies. The "wind wheel" Chakra is situated on the forehead. Fairies, angels, light eleves, goblins and other creatures of the air (including UFO's) are often spinning and dancing in their own play. Rules of their own to defy nature's law. Law is governed by gravity and this includes balance of nature in the cosmos. Too much wind is dense and forms a path channel. Chaos is ruled by non-gravity and a disperse of release. It's where new life is born and connects again with order and balance.

Where tornadoes are concerned, these destructive weather storms, a result of an imblanace and chaos in the air. The tornado is like a release of tension and anger. The tornado could be Mother Nature's fury at us for damaging the Earth. It may also be angry spirits and demons. The tornado also has a strange, uncanny positive side that certain Native American tribes believe in. They consider a tornadic force as a vacuum "cleanser" of the land.

  1. Wind is a force we have never fully harnessed -- wind turbines are a good thing. Although apparently birds do get killed by them.

  2. In the UK, wind turbines are carefully planned offshore so it avoids harming wildlife.
