MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 is an Empowerment of Spirit. 5 is the Center of the Cube, representing a Central Force that manages all our Resources, Discerns the Application, and Engages them into Service.
On Tone 5 we take an inventory and devise a strategy. We are Empowered by seeing the Ways and the Means.
Deer/MANIK is the bringer of Spiritual Tools. The Deer is associated with the Stability of 4, with a foot planted in each direction. We are trying to stabilize the chaos of a Dream of Major Life Change.
The Deer is said to have a Spiritual Tool for every Human limitation. There is a Divine Provision for every failure. The Deer’s means of self preservation is Vigilant Consciousness. (We’re Dreaming our Unconscious Thoughts.)
Deer upholds the Pillars of Creation with one foot planted in each of the 4 directions. Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest and shaman. The priest carries out the Sacred Ceremonies on behalf of the Whole, as they are marked by the calendars.
The Deer stands silently in its own Truth. Deer doesn’t have to defend it’s Truth or explain why it was Chosen. The priest attends all the Divine Altars, serving as a Symbol “to Remember.”
Dynamic developments become possible with the energy of 5. The glyph illustrates the Hand grasping a thread of Light that Completes the Circuit of Divine Consciousness. MANIK serves as the Hand that is sacrificed to the Creator’s Divine Intention, to carry it out in a world of physicality.
This is a good time to take some precaution. We may be prone to distractions.
To all my relations, may we let things be and remember the Provision for every Human limitation. May we reach to grasp the thread that connects a Divine Source of Power.
in lak’ech, I am another you

5 Deer/MANIK (Hand), (Cherokee Deer Ahwu’sdi)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
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.
