3 Deer / MANIK – Baptism of Spirit: Day 3 of 13

3 Deer / MANIK


Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 is the first day of movement in the Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena. We bring an Intention to Life through a movement or communication. Our movements in the Spirit World are actions of Mind, Heart, and Spirit.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest. The glyph illustrates the thumb and forefinger of a hand grasping the spark that completes the circuit to the Power of Spirit. We are guided to move in the way of a Divine Agent  who extends the Hand of the Creator. Deer is the bringer of Spiritual Tools and is said to have kept every tool it has ever used.

MANIK holds the tool we need to overcome our feelings of limitation. Deer/MANIK is capable to push away bad influences and negative energy.

10-DAY PORTAL: Element of Ether

This is day 2 in a 10-day Portal that thins the veil to the Dimension of Spirit and magnifies the Sense of our own Power. A Portal magnifies our ability to observe the landscape in all directions and to be vigilant in an Intention to Serve the Whole.

Deer stands silently in its own Truth and defends itself and community through the Spiritual Tool of Vigilance. MANIK encourages our thoughts of contemplation, remembering, and projecting to expand our Awareness of Spirit. MANIK illustrates our Purpose to serve as the Hands of God.

Deer/MANIK holds the power of Harmonic Resonance. Deer is capable to disable negative energy through the vibration of Unconditional Love. Deer defends its position by silently standing still. The role of Deer is to offer the Spiritual Tools to overcome limitations we perceive in our Self.

Tone 3 helps us discern our way of movement from Point A to Point B. Deer/MANIK encourages the movement of self-discernment. This is an important day to discern the Truth of our direction, so it can be the Truth we can stand on. The best answers to our own Questions will come from the Vigilance to listen to our own Inner Voice of Spirit. A Portal connects us directly to the Spirits of the Ascended Masters. We can ask the Grandfathers and Grandmothers, “What would you have know today?”

To all my relations, may we stand ready to receive a Divine Discernment. May we spend time in silent reflection to consider the Truths we believe about our Self and the Truths we believe about Divine Spirit.  May we count our Spiritual Blessings to help us Grasp our own Higher Consciousness of Unconditional Love.

in lak’ech, i am another you

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

Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.

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.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
