Hado

In almost every culture, from greek mythology to Japanese ancient philosophies, the elements have been mythologized and anthropomorphized in order to make sense of the world. The wind is considered a spiritual power manifest on earth from the four cardinal directions  — north, east, south, and west. Each direction is assigned a specific color, which vary from culture to culture. Ceremonies were held to honor the wind gods.

In Japan, Hado, a concept that has existed in Japan for centuries, means "wave" and "move" - words that describe the energy vibrations that permeate all life. Hado resides in the air, and in all animate life and inanimate things.
