9 Deer / MANIK – Renewal of Spirit: Day 9 of 13


9 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

On Peak Tone 9 our Transformation is led by Deer/MANIK, the Day Sign of the Mayan priest and shaman who serve as the Hands of God. The glyph illustrates a hand with forefinger and thumb grasping a current that completes the circuit to Divine Power.

As we wake in the USA to news of devastation inflicted by one Human on so many others, we need the leadership of a Divine Spiritual Authority. We need to claim our own Spiritual Authority to extend our Love to the suffering that exists on all sides. Words are hard to come by when so many still face danger, when mothers must see their children suffering, when families and friends mourn the loss and injury of loved ones, and the plight of so many more are yet forgotten. Only by Divine Intervention can we continue to Stand in Love. Those who are willing and able, are the Ones we are waiting for.

Tone 9 calls us to Raise our Intention to a Higher Perspective. Our own effort for a Revival of Spirit is the Dream we must expand to the Whole, without prejudice toward any Human Being.

We are called to our Highest State of Consciousness for our own Transformation. Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Spiritual Tools we need to stand in the Integrity of Unconditional Love.

My thoughts turn to our ways of praying for Divine Intervention for each other. So often our prayers are limited to ourselves and our loved ones, expanding only to those who are close to us or who believe the same as we do. Our prayers are still turned inward until we can pray for those whose action we can’t embrace or understand… “the other.”

Tone 9 elevates our Consciousness for a broader understanding. The idea that we should even pray for our enemy needs an upgrade. We should especially pray for those who inflict harm on another. We must see that such behavior in opposition to our own Human Nature is the sign of a great crying out by those whose wounds have not been seen.

These are prayers that require Divine Intervention to offer in the Truth of our Integrity. We must stand in the Truth of our Integrity to maintain our Spiritual Authority. Deer is unmoveable in its silent vigilance that surveys the landscape in all directions. Deer/MANIK is the protector and defender of All the People.

Deer/MANIK brings the tools to overcome our Powerlessness. As we look within at our own feelings of limitation, Deer holds the very tool we need to overcome our illusion of personal weakness. Our real strength lies in weakness that is willing to surrender everything unto the Hands of the Creator.

As a Day Sign of the West, Deer/MANIK brings the Wisdom of personal experience. This is a day to Honor and Pay Attention to our Emotional Responses to daily experience. Deer can guide us to an Understanding of how we can extend the Spiritual Gifts we were given.

To all my relations, may we surrender our feelings of powerless to the Creator, and stand in Faith that there is a Divine Answer. May we be vigilant in our Prayers, calling for Divine Intervention for those whose suffering is yet unseen.  May we serve as the anchor of God’s Love in the world. May we be given the Spiritual Strength to carry on in the Integrity of Unconditional Love.

in lak’ech, I am another you

9 Deer/MANIK (Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi)

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

Deer/MANIK (Hand): Deer are spirit tools. Silence itself is a spiritual experience for Deer. For Deer life is a pilgrimage. Deer are dominant persons who defend the people and will make sacrifices for others. The spirit of Deer upholds the pillars of the four directions. With the power inherent in the number four, Deer pushes away bad influences or negative energies. Skill and quality of work are very important to Deer. They are presented with tools for every task in life and it is with these that they are able to rise above limitations. Deer has a habit of keeping every tool it has ever used. This leads to clutter and indecision, loss and procrastination. When confronted with promises not kept, Deer becomes stubborn, manipulative and evasive.

Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi: Symbolized by Constellation Galagina, the Stag, known as Taurus, the Bull. It does not include the Pleiades and Hyades clusters which in Cherokee are viewed as separate. To feed, gatherers of food and supplies, they enjoy rituals, ceremonials, feasts, the souls of hospitality, sociability. Freedom versus security issues often inspire leadership and unique solutions.  Combined with artistic and inspiring energies in harmony with lunar cycles, they nourish the clans. Totem-Deer:  A priest or shaman, a powerful person in general, to overwhelm an individual with one’s personal power, divination; inclined to become a teacher, healer, guru, civic leader, or politician.  Ability to create harmonic resonance.
