11 Deer / MANIK – Journey of Discovery: Day 11 of 13


11 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 serves the Intention of Resolution. Tone 11 is the evolutionary energy that transforms Experience into Wisdom. We each grow through our own unique experience, and 11 helps us draw a Higher Understanding of our Place in the World. The Master Number 11 is a symbol of Enlightenment.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of Spiritual Tools. MANIK, also known as Hand, offers the way to carry out our Divine Purpose. The glyph illustrates a hand, grasping with forefinger and thumb, a Spark that connects a circuit to Divine Power.

As Tone 11 helps us to resolve an understanding of our Purpose to bring Light to the world, MANIK helps us see that we are Divinely Placed wherever we are, when we Grasp the Spark that connects us to the Divine. Holding this Spark, we are always in position to share the Light of the Creator. MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, the Hand that extends God’s Love in the world. Holding on to the source of Divine Power we can stand in the Truth of our Integrity, wherever we are. Deer/MANIK shows us the strength of standing still.

The Deer’s most used Spiritual Tool is vigilance. Deer’s only means of protecting itself is standing in silence, vigilantly observing the landscape. MANIK holds up the pillars of the 4 directions. Connected to God is our Highest Experience of living. Deer/MANIK leads us to that place of silent vigilance.

11 Deer/MANIK is a day the Mayan priest goes to the Highest Altar. Yesterday, CIMI called us to prepare for a coming birth. Tone 11 calls us to Higher Inspiration.  We are preparing for the arrival of a new Light and Life of Spirit. In the darkness we wait for a Miracle.

MANIK is a Day Sign of Spiritual Authority. We receive it Kneeling at an Altar Above. It comes with the price that we would sacrifice our Self for the Greatest Good of All.  Our Highest Aspirations would reflect the Intention of the Creator, Harmony and Equity.

We are called to live for a Divine Purpose. Our Highest Aspirations aren’t for better circumstances or a better advantage. There is One Light that holds more Joy than any material gift. Our preparation for New Life is letting go of the old one. We are asked to Live for a Higher Meaning and Purpose.

MANIK guides us to be vigilant of our thoughts to find our feelings of limitation. MANIK brings a Spiritual Tool to overcome it. Our greatest limitations are found in our attachments to the world. Our Transformation is a process of small deaths in letting go.

MANIK resides in the West, the direction of our unknown experience, our “hard road of life.” The Element of Water touches our emotions and also brings a Blessing of Spirit.

To all my relations, may we turn to the Direct Inspiration of the Creator. May we share the silence and pay attention to our thoughts. The experiences of our everyday lives can lead us to a Higher Understanding. May we know that Miracles are possible when we believe they are, especially when we all believe together.

in lak’ech, I am another you

I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year.  This 21 days started on 11 Jaguar/IX and ends in synchronicity, on 5 Jaguar/IX – an empowerment born from the Magic of Gratitude. (21 days from Kin 154 to Kin 174).

21-Days of Gratitude: Day 14

I’m grateful for the desire to be something better. I’m grateful that the Creator’s Love is always within my grasp.

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

Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.

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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. 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. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
