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


9 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 completes a new Transformation. Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the bigger picture. Tone 9 comes with a warning that there could be suffering to bear if we fail to look deeper into the Truth we Know. Tone 9 is all about completion.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest who brings the Gift of Spiritual Tools. MANIK is a symbol of stability with 4 legs to uphold the pillars of the Spiritual realm – one planted in each of the 4 directions. MANIK maintains the stability by carrying out the prayers, rituals and ceremonies on behalf of the Whole.

The Tzolk’in is the priest’s Spiritual Tool to maintain the stability of Time and Place. Living in synchronicity with Human’s schedule of transformation, every moment will hold an opportunity for our Happiness.

9 Deer/MANIK completes the Transformation for a Major Life Change by marking the Time and Place for Humans to be Happy is always Now. The Creator intended that there would always be a Divine way.  The Creator knew that Human would carry the burden of material limitations. MANIK holds the Faith to Stand on the Provision of Love, and a Truth that for every Human limitation, we would receive the Spiritual Tool we need to overcome it. Today we can see the future that we can create when we hold fast to our Faith and carry on, following the Human path we were given.

Deer/MANIK holds the Faith and Inner Strength to stand in its own Truth. In a herd of Deer there is always one who serves in the role of the Leader and Guide. Deer’s most used tool is Vigilant Observation. Through an effort of Consciousness and a Daily Practice, Deer doesn’t forget its Truth. It’s dedicated itself to Remembering for the Whole. We always shine a Light when we remember Love. Standing in the Truth of Love, the Deer never has to force anyone to go along. Deer makes an opportunity for a Divine Communion available. Love will always entrain our Heart to Follow. When we see others lining up for Love, we’ll Choose to Follow.

MANIK resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Journey through life. Holding the Element of Water, MANIK holds a Blessing for the Heart. Water holds the Ether of Spirit used by the priest for Blessings, Baptisms, and Purification. The Deer Knows that Love finds its own way. There is Power in the Hope and Faith we see in each other.

The Deer has the strength to stand in its Integrity. That doesn’t mean we must be perfect to be a Guiding Light. Instead, the Deer guides us to stand in the Truth of our authenticity. We were all meant to be leaders for one another. Our Gift is the Wisdom of the Experiences we’ve shared.

The trecena of Storm/CAUAC is completing a Transformation that promises a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit. A Revival of our Spirit is not a Human accomplishment. Though, a Revival requires for Human to show up. Deer/MANIK follows a Divine Calendar that offers a reason to “show up” every day. If we spend all our time looking to the future, we miss the opportunity for Happiness Right Now.

Human likes it when “big things happen.” We’re not so excited about the minor details. Yet, in the smallest details lie the greatest Truths. We don’t see all that goes on behind the scenes of a Divine Intervention. Small steps of Intention set the course for big things. The Elders say many times a Divine Agency is working on our behalf behind the scenes. When Human reaches a limit a Divine Agency can perform a Spiritual Healing on our behalf. We only have to ask for Divine Will.

Every Day we seek a Divine Way, we will be given a Divine Way.

Don Alejandro’s serves as the High Priest and Spiritual Leader who followed in the footsteps of 13 generations to make the Offerings and Observe the Ceremonies on behalf of the Whole. It doesn’t matter how far away he may be, our Hearts are connected by the thread of Ether. He shared the secret of the Mayan calendars because it was the Divine Time for the world to prepare for a Major Life Change.

We thought nothing happened on December 21, 2012. We’ve barely just begun a new era of Humanity. On a planetary scale, we’ve generated the momentum for major change. We can Know the Future when we Choose to Dream of it… and ask to Believe. Love’s Provision will uphold the Pillars of Truth. Today is the Future from yesterday, holding the equal promise of a Sacred Event.

9 Deer/MANIK completes our Renewal with the warning of Patience and the guidance of Vigilant Consciousness. MANIK shows us the way for a Revival of Spirit to persevere. We can’t afford to wait until we’ve wandered away from the Truth of Love that sustains us.

Yesterday I found myself unsettled over a financial matter. I became anxious when my only option was to leave a message or sit on hold for 54 minutes. I left a message at one number and called another to sit on hold for 20 minutes, when I gave up. Then I Remembered. This is happening for a Divine Reason. I was returned to Peace and Happiness. I was willing to Go Along. Waiting could be the Divine Provision.

I also realized the chaos I was creating for myself. I had all the paperwork in my hand with a return envelope addressed to the one in charge of my account. In the time I sat on hold it could have been in the mail. I was Looking for chaos, so I created some. 🙂

That’s reason enough to dedicate ourselves to a Divine Practice of Remembering. We can Believe that ALL chaos is Divine, when we know we’re not creating it. We might just find that chaos totally disappears from Human view when we Remember a Provision of Divine Justice.

The Gift the Mayan priest offers on our behalf is a Gift of Remembering. Our Mission on behalf of the Whole is Demonstrating that we Remember. Forgetting is Human’s greatest limitation. The Light of ONE Remembering can shine for the Whole.

The glyph illustrates the Hand, another name for MANIK. The forefinger and thumb are shown grasping a thread of Ether that completes a circuit of Divine Power. The circle on the Hand reminds us of the Deer’s eye of Vigilant Observation. We will always know the Wise Way when we stand on the Truth we Believe.

To all my relations, may we give thanks for those who remember on our behalf. May we see the Power of a Family that Remembers for one another. May we see how all our chaos can be resolved by Remembering. May we be transformed to Remember so we can seize the Happiness that is offered to us Every Sacred Day. May we know the importance of One Day, One Step after another. May we stand on the Truth that every Time and Place holds the same Promise that lies in the future. Our Time and Place of Happiness can be eternal when we choose to remember it Every Day. Love can be eternal when we are Vigilant to see it. May we give thanks that there is never a moment when Love can’t be found. There is never Time when Mother Earth doesn’t reveal her Beauty. We don’t have to be perfect to Lead others, we only need to Lead our Self to Love for another to Remember and Follow.

May we Know our Justice is won by Faith and Hope in an Intention of Love. When we stand on Faith our Divine Justice is Love and Believing. May we count every experience as Sacred. Even our challenges are Divine to produce the Compassionate Love, Character, and Strength to Persevere. May we Know that in every struggle is a “Fire” with the Power to Change us. May what is Healed and Blessed by Love send ripples of Light through the Whole.

in lak’ech, I am another you

May we hold Tata in the Light of our Love and give thanks for that he has carried out the prayers, rituals, and sacred ceremonies as he was guided to do by 13 generations that came before. May we see the Miracle that we would know this Wisdom in our own Sacred Time and Place… Intentions that have been in motion for 13 generations.

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.

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.

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.
