MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 4 holds an Intention of Stability. The energy of 4 relates to the cube, the most stable of forms. The cube defines dimension by its boundaries and parameters. Tone 4 intends to establish an orientation and the directions of thought that will serve as a foundation for our journey of creation.
Deer/MANIK holds the Meaning and Purpose of the Mayan priest who carries on a Mission of Love on behalf of the Whole. MANIK dedicates itself to a Service of Remembering. Deer/MANIK holds all the Spiritual Tools and carries out a living demonstration of using them. The Mayan priest accepts the responsibility to be watchful of the Time and to carry out the Sacred Ceremonies as they are marked on the calendar.
The Deer/MANIK holds the Gift of Harmonic Resonance. A Divine Movement naturally draws others to follow. MANIK offers a Living Symbol and Demonstration of Love that both Spirit and Human eyes will see. Human is naturally drawn by Love when their Spirit sees the Divine Symbols. Human is more likely to follow what others do, than what they say.
Deer/MANIK holds the Divine Truth that we don’t have to push Love for it to be born into the world. Everyone is already watching and waiting for the Signs of a Possibility. Divine Love holds its own Power of Attraction. Human knows Divine Love when they see it for themselves. Deer/MANIK offers a demonstration of they Way that Symbolizes Divine Love.
Both Tone 4 and Deer/MANIK are Symbols of Stability. Deer/MANIK is the bringer of Spiritual Tools, said to keep every tool it’s known or used for a Divine Purpose. MANIK is said to hold the very tool we need for an application of Divine Love. The Deer maintains its stability on 4 legs with one leg planted in each of the 4 directions. Taking on the Mission of the Deer, we can uphold our Truth of the Love that Holds the Power to Multiply Itself.
Deer Stands on the Divine Truth it believes. Vigilant Observation is used for the purpose to remember that there’s a Divine Purpose for ALL Times and Places. We’ve learned that the Creator always shares the Inspiration for the Truth We Need to Know Right Now. We are all standing in different Places that have their own “need to Know,” and their own Divine Time of Truth.
The Time and Place for our Divine Illumination is in the very place we discover a Human limitation in our Self. The Spiritual Tool that covers every Human limitation is the Truth that God will always stand in our Corner. A Provision is made for all the limitations that would be discovered on the path of our Chosen journey. Each limitation is the Time and Place of a Miracle… when a Divine Truth could be seen in its Very Best Light.
We get into Human monkey business, when we get the idea we know where someone else needs to be. On a silly Human mission of Love, we cross the boundaries of the Creator’s Divine Time. Above all we are being led to believe in the Authority of our Thoughts. We can’t learn that from someone telling us what we think, or telling us what to think.
We may THINK it’s Divine Love, but we’re turned around if we’re applying our Vigilant Observation to define someone else. Maybe it’s our Human Duality playing tricks. We are actually lost in the fog of our own illusion, trying to validate our own Truth by a Human consensus.
Human is likely to seize a Truth that is the answer to its own Happiness, a Happiness for the Whole that would be guaranteed, by every one else seeing things exactly like we do. THINK ABOUT IT. This is SUCH a FUNNY Human trick, if you can keep your sense of humor. Is our IDEA OF PARADISE REALLY a world where everyone AGREES WITH OUR OPINION? LOL (I think our Ego really believes it is.)
The Deer doesn’t need to defend the Truth, only keep a Vigilant Observation of Love. To uphold the pillars of our Truth we have to see what they are, and WHY they are. We are looking for our own Symbols of Love we can store as Spiritual Tools within. We have to Observe our Self.
Deer’s tend to congregate in a herd. We’ll all be led by our own personal attraction. We won’t congregate because someone fenced us in. We’ll find our self together during the Times and Places where we are sharing the same Divine Thoughts. One herd will be no less Divine than another. The only difference will be that the ones who are attracted into a herd will be trying to uphold the same pillars at the same time.
Humans were meant to know they didn’t have to turn to another Human to find answers. Whenever we think we have the answer for someone else, we create a symbol of being seen as not being able to find their own answers. (Our Mission isn’t meant to be a Crusade.) Our Mission must Uphold the Truth that a Connection to the Creator is all we need to know the Truth we can Believe Now.
The glyph illustrates the Deer and a Hand. Hand is another name for MANIK. The Hand in the glyph is grasping a Thread of Ether between the thumb and forefingers that completes a circuit of Divine Power. The Circle on the Hand, is the watchful eye of the Deer. The Human Hand is also a symbol of a Creator with the ability to Grasp. We Grasp a Divine Idea, and manifest it through our own Hands. The Power of Choice lies in our Hands. We hold the authority over how we use them.
The Mayan priest is empowered to carry out its mission as a personal demonstration. For the Deer to compete its Mission it must stand in the Integrity of its own Truth.
The Thread of Ether is the symbol that Deer/MANIK offers as a personal demonstration of a path that leads to the Truth of Divine Love that holds a provision for every limitation that exists in the place where we are. In our Divine Place of Human Limitation we See a Miracle in the Provision of a Creator’s Love that stands in our corner, exactly where we are and as we are in every Time and Place.
When we “see the journey” we will Know a Way. We must uphold the Pillars where we are by the Truth we Believe. The Divine Light that will Humble Us at the altar, will illuminate the Truth we need to see.
Our Pillars in Spirit are the 4 directions of our experience. If we are Vigilant of all 4 directions, we can maintain our grasp for the journey that brings Unknown Love to Light. No matter where we stand, the Creator made sure the answers would right in front of us. In the West, the Answer to any Fear of the Unknown lies in the East. The East was where we received the Inspiration that is leading our journey. We will remember that our Dream was manifested from a Divine thought. The Tone and Frequency of the Beginning Divine thought is leading our most Direct Path to an experience of Divine Love.
Our Greatest Leaps of Faith are accomplished in the steps that lead to an altar. May we demonstrate that Truth for the Creator to shine through.
4 Deer/MANIK can lead us to a Divine Illumination of a Truth we need to know right now. MANIK showed up here and now for a Reason. On the climb for the Wisdom that could manifest a Harmony of Love for Humanity, may we be attracted to what MANIK is leading us to do.
To all my relations, may we Stand on a Promise of Divine Love. May we uphold the pillars of our Faith in a Love that has the Power within itself to draw Human hearts by attraction. We could consider the Miracles we would eventually be able to see, when we dedicate our Self to carry out this mission. When we don’t push people to follow, we’ll see the Truth of a Human attraction to Divine Love. May we stand on the Promises of Love we already believe, as the foundation of Love Meant to Be in our very own Time and Place.
To anchor our Stability in Truth, may we plant a Divine Foot in each of the 4 directions to hold us exactly where we are, in the place we are meant to be. May we silently hold our Ground as a demonstration that the Truth we Believe is the Divine Truth that stands on its own. It doesn’t need for Human to defend it. May we follow MANIK to the altar to kneel in the Light of Divine Love. May the Symbol of Truth that our prayer will be answered appear when we open our eyes and see that we are not alone.
in lak’ech, I am another you,
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
OUR LOVE IN THE FREEZER
We can remember our Symbol of Stability in the Human Love burned away and held in solid form in the freezer. Our Human Love is suspended in the prayers that began the journey. A symbol can lead us back to the Time and Place we first dreamed it, so we can dream it again. We can manifest the Truth that the Divine Forces of Mother Nature can be welded to our Faith. We asked to Believe in the Divine Power of Love. Our Divine Justice could only be a Truth of Love that we will See and Believe.
THE MAYAN NEW YEAR
In the Maya lands it’s tradition to carry out the 21 Days of Gratitude ceremony leading to the New Year on 8 Monkey/CHUEN (8 B’atz). This is the day for the dedication of the Daykeepers. I always make a mistake on this count. So, there won’t be a countdown, though I’m reminding myself about Gratitude for the rest of the way to the New Year.
GRATITUDE FOR THE DAY:
I’m grateful that every Human holds their own path within. I’m grateful that the Truth of our Self is ours alone to know. We never have to worry that someone else knows more about us than we do. I’m grateful for the One that Knows ALL our Truth and all our Limitations, and Proves at an altar that we are Loved exactly as we Are.

4 Deer/MANIK (Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
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.

HONORING THE HIGH PRIEST WHO HAS LED US TO AN ALTAR
May we Honor the Mayan priest who has carried out the Mission for 13 generations. May we see the Symbol of the Divine 13 that upheld the Pillars of Divine Love for us so that we might exist in the Consciousness of Love, in this Time and Place.
May we give thanks for the Divine 13 that symbolizes a Way by a Light of Love that shines from Above the 12 that symbolizes the Whole of Humanity below.
May we give thanks for all the Rituals and Sacred Ceremonies that Don Alejandro, “Wandering Wolf” has carried out for us. May we give thanks for all the Trails to Love that have been created. May we See and Acknowledge the Inspiration that inspired us to begin a Divine Journey of Remembering who we are. We are not alone. As “Tata” shared the Truth, “We are One, like different fingers on the very same Hand.”
Tata is bed-ridden and in failing health. We are holding a Divine Vigil of Prayers for the Divine Intervention. Anyone who would like to share a prayer for Tata, or a donation to help cover his medical care, can do so through Joseph Giove, who has been a long time supporter and close friend of Tata.
The last update and details for contact are found on the last Update on Tata’s Health.
May we give thanks for Joseph who serves as our intermediary for the demonstration of our Love.
