2 Deer / MANIK – Birth of a Savior: Day 2 of 13


2 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

The Reed/BEN trecena offered us a Dream of what Family was meant to be. We saw how all the links, when connected together would be a circle of Equality. The Creator shared a dream of Light in our sleep. CIMI woke us up in the middle of Labor. In the Unknown passage of the darkness in the daylight, we face the reality and walk the walk.

Tone 2 represents Duality. We were 1 with the Creator, and now we are 2. It’s like seeing the difference of Night and Day. What was seen in Unity was perfect. Now Human is separated into its own realm to see the differences in a family below, between the One that was family Above. Tone 2 presents us with a Choice of the Dream to reconcile the 2 back into 1.

Deer/MANIK guides the Choice. Deer/MANIK was the Intention for planetary change that would establish the Momentum to bring a family together. We were shown how important the role is of the Mayan priest. Like Don Alejandro, there is always a Peace in Knowing there’s an Elder in charge… someone who knows all the prayers that are needed, someone we can count on to know a Wise Direction, and someone who tells us that we are a family, as close as fingers on One Hand.

Sometimes Human doesn’t know what it has til its gone. For the next 5 days our Guiding Year Bearers are away from Home, as one has fulfilled it’s Mission, and the next moves into position. We’re in charge of the family. We have to learn to be the Elders. It will be our Mission to Carry on in a Good and Worthy and WISE direction, as the Honored Elders have taught us to do. This Tzolk’in round, the Wayeb falls during our “walk-the-walk” of Family and Home. Deer/MANIK was the one that taught us what to do. We’ll be making a climb of Spiritual Growth through the Wayeb. The destination is 7 Road/EB, the Balancing Time and Place. Drawing a family together is within our grasp at the top, through a New Leap of Faith. The Wayeb is also the time to turn thoughts to Home and to offer Provision for each other.

The Transformer/CIMI trecena promises a major life transition, matters of Life and Death and Family. We see all the signs around us of this Intended Time and Place. Waking up from the most Divine Dream of family, it may feel broken in the light of day. Major Life Change requires the chaos. It’s a breakdown of existing realities so that a Dream can manifest in its place. It won’t look anything like the Dream in the beginning stages. Just like childbirth introduces the reality of the event. Before we only saw the beauty at the end. Now we see how Love Begins in the Family. We will CHOOSE how we want this experience to begin.

In a realm of Spirit all our Inspiration is Light. The Darkness below can be an inspiration too. My inspiration of harsh reality was receiving news YESTERDAY that my favorite cousin, the only one my age through most of my childhood, passed away JANUARY 19. I received a letter shared a month later with photo copy of a Christmas card that held news of his Cancer, and the copy of the Memorial program, saved by the one chose to be the one who attended on behalf of the whole family. RIP Cousin Robert.

It was a dark awakening to a link that wasn’t and harsh reality of some natal family dynamics, among members I thought to be in good standing. I loved YOU all the more. I loved all the more that we CHOOSE to create a Divine Family that holds an Intention of Provision. We have to see that we ALL do. We can all grow from what we learn through each other. We can create the links to our distant relatives who were the most different, if we stick close together. After all, we’re all a bunch of monkeys. The Monkey’s sense of Humor could be our salvation… by not taking everything so seriously. (It sure looked serious yesterday. The accomplishment wouldn’t be so Beautiful and we couldn’t Grow without a challenge.)

2 Deer/MANIK is guiding the Divine Choice we would make to carry on: to Light the Candles, Say the Prayers, observe the Sacred Ceremonies, and to be a good example, by sticking to the Truth we Grasped in our Dream. We dreamed. We were given the Consciousness of our Spiritual Tools by Deer/MANIK to do it. This is a big test run that holds Divine Justice no matter how we manage to pull it off – a Divine Intention will manifest the Miracle. It’s our turn to stand on the Faith of a Miracle that could change everything.

The Deer stands in the West, the direction of an Unknown Experience. Deer is an image of Stability with 4 Feet, one squarely planted in each direction, that can uphold the Pillars of a Dream. We’re observing a path from Point A to Point B through a Human perspective of what we think is possible. MANIK’s example is to stand on the Truth of what is Divinely Possible… if we just keep Lighting the Candles, Saying the Prayers, and Kneeling in Humility to the Altar of the One. We can Choose to walk in Gratitude that we already ARE ONE, and KNOWING IT, we will BE a Light to others.

In a Universe within, all our pieces and parts of matter are assigned to a specific Meaning and Purpose. Matter is organized as Flesh, Blood, and Bone. Within the Human body is a network of Light – the source of Human Bioluminescence. New medical discoveries are using Light through this network as new ways of healing. The light that human emits has been studied to find that light in the physical body is generated when we are thinking Higher Thoughts in Prayer and Meditation. We also take on Light when we eat Living Food. There is physical evidence of the Light within us. I wonder if our particles of Spiritual Light are free floating radicals, trying to find their Meaning and Purpose in the Spiritual Body… rearranging us together by the Meaning and Purpose we share, where together we’ll Know Our Way through Light that shines like our own. Clusters within the Family could generate a crystalline structure for each special kind of Love that would serve a meaning and purpose Together. Maybe our most important Mission in Life, is to draw together a Family of Light within that can serve a functioning part for the Whole network of Light inside.

It’s at least an objective perspective we could go on, rather than the perspective an emotional Ego might return. The West holds the Element of Water, an influence that opens our Heart and touches our Emotions. We will call on Inner Strength so the Emotion of Love will be the Ruler. Water holds the Ether of Spirit for Baptisms, Blessings, Healing, and Purification. When we open the Heart of the Deer, the Love will pour out.

Today we’re given a choice of how we will handle the chaos of this climb. An Intention to draw a family together is a most Divine Intention. The Deer Volunteers. We can volunteer to be the Example of Love and Forgiveness for every broken member that comes to us. We can still see them in their own Light, so they will rise to meet it. As we Volunteer to lift them, so we will Rise to our Greatest Occasion of Love at the Threshold of the Reward we will be able to See with Human eyes through pieces that we see ARE coming together.

To all my relations, may we consider what we’ve learned and the Tools we were given to carry out a Mission of Love. May we think of the ways and tools that could be our way. May we consider how much the Dream of family meant to us when we saw everything it COULD be. May our prayers be to know the Meaning and Purpose that will complete the Blessing of it that we Loved the Most – what we realized WE needed the most. That will be the Best Love We Know How to Give – we know it so well because it was what we Love to Experience. We can create it if we keep our eyes turned toward Giving it instead of Receiving it. We can be the Elder who forgives other growing Divine Children of all Human Monkey ways with a Leap of Faith that they are growing every bit as much as we are, in their own Time and Place. We can draw a family together by Seeing and Acknowledging the Longing for a Divine Family in all of us… the perfect one than no Human family could ever pull off without failures. May we claim we are all good enough, and that a Family is worth every effort of Love. We’ll find a Divine way.

Remember the Wisdom of Reed/BEN’s shadow – we must hold the Highest Expectations, but we can’t lead anyone with a Steel Pipe. Instead, we were directed to be the Garden Hose – it bends, and pours out a Blessing of Spirit. May we pour out Love, Believing that LOVE IS ALWAYS ALL that’s needed to create Harmonic Resonance and Right Relationship with each other. I’m believing for you. I know you will believe for me, because YOU are my Family of Divine Provision.

in lak’ech, i am another you

21-Days of Gratitude: A Jaguar Path to the Haab New Year

I’m grateful for the Divine Family that will be staying at home with me for the Wayeb. There’s lots of teenagers in our Divine Family, capable to carry it out together. We can count on one of us knowing what to do until someone with all the Authority returns home.

Our candles burn for Don Alejandro, reflecting the Light he shared with us. May we send the Grandfather Tata, our Love and Light.
Don Alejandro is bed-ridden at 90 and we’re holding watch. A contact email for a donation to help cover his medical care is included in the Update on Don Alejandro’s health shared by his dear friend Joseph.

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

Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.

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]
