3 Deer / MANIK – The Destiny of Our Spirit: Day 3 of 13



3 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. The Serpent/CHICCHAN is guiding a new way. We’re moved by our Feelings. We can’t go back. To reach the Miracle, we have to keep moving on. Life begins with Movement.

Our Spirit moves forward to Higher Ground when we Move by Intention. When we take a step toward our Dream of Unknown Future, Movement brings the Dream to Life. A Living Dream has its own Life Story with a beginning and an ending. It’s just an idea until we move on it.

Movement toward our Dream and the words that disseminate our Dream create a Sound in the Universe. The Tone and Frequency of Vibration are established by Intention, the Reason we move. CHICCHAN moves us forward for an Intention of Knowing. Our Heart was prepared to Feel the Way.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest. The Deer guides a way to Higher Ground. There is always one Deer who serves as the leader of the Whole. The Deer doesn’t defend its position. It stands in a place it has chosen To Be, through Vigilant Observation and a Discernment of its own Truth.

Deer/MANIK holds all the Spiritual Tools of Spirit. Tools hold a meaning of Power, defined by their purpose and application. MANIK leads us to the Holy Ground of Love.

The glyph illustrates MANIK as a Hand, an alternative name for MANIK. Moved by our Heart we will carry out the Creator’s Dream. Through a Divine Intention we will serve as a Hand of God. The symbol of the Eye on the Hand represents the Tool of Vigilant Consciousness. MANIK holds a Mission to Remember the Creator’s promise and to shine a Light for the Whole. The Way is shown by the Hand that grasps a thread of Ether from Above. MANIK completes a connection to a circuit of Divine Power. Through a dedicated Consciousness of Spirit, MANIK’s Power is the Truth of “God With Us.”

CIMI the Transformer and Comforter through change is with us always in Spirit. CIMI is a Vigilant Consciousness with eyes trained on the future. CIMI shared the Truth of a Blessing in our Future. She guided us to let go of  the past and to reach for a new beginning. Every move that Human makes is an Intention to reach for something. Our Spirit is moved forward by reaching for the Truth our Heart longs to manifest in a world Below. The Deer dedicates its Life to reaching for the Higher Ground of Divine Truth, Truth that is known by the Heart.

Deer/MANIK resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Future. MANIK leads the way to a Time and Place where we can always Know a Divine Future. MANIK follows the Divine Path that leads to an altar. MANIK applies the Power of a Promise through the Offering of its prayers. Our Divine Promise is the 13 of theurgy, the Power to call upon God to Intervene was given to Human through our rituals and sacred ceremonies. The Deer holds the Truth of a Divine Communion that leads our Heart when we are reaching beyond our own Power to an exponential Power of Divinity.

MANIK holds the Element of Water. Water holds the Ether of Spirit and is used by the priest for Baptisms, Initiations, Blessings, and Purification. Water relates to our emotions, our Heart’s response to an experience. Through Vigilant Consciousness our Heart can be moved by Divine Truth. We can Feel our way beyond the emotions and limited view of our own Ego. Ego is the first sign we can Feel that it’s Time to turn our thoughts in another direction to find our Higher Ground. Our thoughts and Dreams are always turned around when we are kneeling in Humility before the Power of God.

MANIK leads the whole as a living demonstration of Faith that Remembers. MANIK doesn’t need to force its own way. When the Deer lights the fires of Sacred Ceremony, others Remember and follow a path to their own altar. Human will always reach for a Higher Way when we see it. Reaching is why we move.

MANIK knows its own Truth. It doesn’t need to convince anyone about what the Heart believes. MANIK Believes in the Future that CIMI gave us the Gift to See. MANIK knows what it’s reaching for, a Power to manifest the Dream of Harmony and Equity. Leaning on Divine Guidance, MANIK knows the Power of the Truth it holds To Be. Truth that is beyond a human explanation will be revealed in its own Time and Place.

MANIK is a symbol of stability with one foot planted in each of the 4 directions. The Deer is vigilantly observant of the Truth in all directions that can uphold the Pillars of a Dream known to our Heart. The Deer shares the Power to push away thoughts that lead away from the Divine Truth. The Deer’s Most Sacred Tool is the Truth of a Divine Provision. MANIK holds EVERY Tool, including a Tool of Divinity that covers every Human limitation. Through that One Tool, Human holds a Divine Provision for everything.

3 Deer/MANIK inspires us to Move for a Divine Reach on a journey that is dedicated to an altar where ALL Divine Truth can be Known to our Mind, Body, and Soul. To be guided by the Heart, that’s where we have to go. We’ve grown to maturity. We can clearly see the direction led by our Ego, and we’ve also seen how easily Human can forget. MANIK demonstrates a Mission to follow thoughts that lead to God’s Love and God’s Way.

God is with us. We are moved by the Deer to engage a Divine Communion of Spirit with Vigilant Consciousness to KNOW the Power of Our Own Way of reaching to a Light Above.  We were given the Vision of a Divine Future to reach for a Higher Truth of Love.

The Divine Communion found at an altar is the Living Water that pours out the Blessings of Spirit, Initiates a Divine Way, Purifies our Intentions, and Consecrates our Spirit to Convict our Heart to follow. Our Faith will be multiplied to abundance by every trip we make. MANIK’s path manifests Believing in what we FEEL is True. Through every Offering we bring to an altar, we are Atoned with the Consciousness of Divinity. We Know the Truth when we can hear God’s thoughts and See what the Creator sees.

Deer offers the Power for Spiritual Developments by turning away from the world. The Deer doesn’t look for validation of the Truth from another Human Being. Deer is willing to Stand on the Truth known to the Heart. The Deer’s path can be lonely road when we are no longer unconsciously “going along.” Others will see the change. When we take off in our own direction, some may feel they’ve been left behind. They will no longer hold the power to influence our thoughts.

The Truth we perceive in a world below are pillars of a realm of thought. Every human lives in a realm that’s upheld by the Truth they believe is Real. We’re guided to reach for our Divine realm in the future and to live there. The Ego intends to uphold its truth in the world, just like our Spirit. We weren’t meant to live in any realm other than our own. We don’t have to prove our truth when we are conscious that others are living in their own world. They built it from their own Truth. No one can build a Life that depends on Truth we can never know about each other.

MANIK believes in ALL Truth and in the Divinity that will always raise Human’s Truth to Higher Ground. MANIK knows it’s a Self Discovery that pours out the Blessings through a Communion that promises Divine Justice for Every One.

To all my relations, the Truth that can move us to a New Life by a Power from Above is always waiting at an altar. The Dream that was shared was the Consciousness of Knowing within. All the Spiritual Gifts we hoped for are manifested through the Tools of MANIK.

May we begin the journey to a New Life claiming the One Divine Tool that covers every human limitation. All we have to do to uphold the pillars of our Faith is to go to One Place where we will Remember that One Divine Truth. We’ll be moved by the Truth that we cannot fail. We’re Free to follow our Heart. By Divine Justice all our Relationships will be drawn into Harmony and Equity when we’re living in our own world. We can believe in Truth that stands forever.

As we take our first step may we be moved to dedicate our Self to the Mission that will lead us into the Light of our New World, the Life our Heart chooses. May we stand on the Divine Discernment that Love always leads to Higher Ground. May our offering be the Vision we saw of our Divine Future. May our hearts be convicted that the Life we Dream of was meant to be, and is ours to claim at an altar. May our Heart Know how important it is to go there and Remember.

May we go for ALL reasons to know the Whole Truth. May we dedicate an altar as the place we will go to discern every experience of Life in a Divine Way. A new Life is waiting for us to build the Pillars and foundation of Truth where it can always stand.

May we follow what our Heart leads us to do. God will grasp the Hand that reaches and never let go. May we confess EVERYTHING we Feel at an altar. God wants to know that WE Know, the One Who Knows EVERYTHING Loves us Forever.

in lak’ech, i am another you

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

Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.

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.
