4 Deer / MANIK – The Experience of Creation: Day 4 of 13



4 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 holds an Intention of Stability. Tone 4 is represented by the cube, the most stable of all forms. The dimension of a cube is defined by its boundaries and parameters. The Inherent thoughts of stability relate to the 4th hour of creation. We move into action by intention, moved by a reason. Before we take another step, we take stock of the whole picture. We survey the field of creation and conceive all its possibilities.

On Tone 4 we establish a foundation of form that will define Our “laws of the creation.”

Deer/MANIK, the Day Sign of the Mayan priest offers a way of reaching for the Divine Power To Be. The Deer is a symbol of stability with one leg planted in each of the 4 directions. The Deer is also known as Hand. Deer’s mission is to serve as the Hand of God on Earth, upholding the Pillars of Faith for the Whole.

The glyph illustrates a Hand grasping a thread of Ether to complete a circuit of Divine Power Above. A dedicated path to the altar is the priest’s demonstration. The Mayan priest observes the rituals and sacred ceremonies on behalf of the whole.

MANIK resides in the West, the Direction of the darkness of the Unknown. MANIK holds the Element of Water, the substance that holds the Ether of Spirit. MANIK uses Holy Water for blessings, initiations, baptisms, and purification.

MANIK is the giver of Spiritual Tools. MANIK offers us the Truth that the Unknown is the place of all possibilities. Human can apply a negative connotation to “darkness.” The darkness of the West is only our Unknown Future. The Ego likes to be in control. Upholding the pillars of Faith, the Deer pushes away negativity.

Our Intention is to Love Everything, believing in the Hand of Divine Agency. The Unknown, like every experience, has a very Divine Reason To Be. Deer/MANIK can help us see it as the Spiritual Tool and Gift the Unknown is intended to be.

MANIK is known for the gift of Harmonic Resonance, a vibration created by the Intentional Movements of Divine Love. We are atoned through an Offering of Faith. When we kneel in Consciousness and Humility to the Greatness of God, the Sacred Exchange is Knowing our Faith is Seen Above. Our Provision is Love without conditions. God knows Your miracle and my miracle, and all the miracles of the Whole. We Know it too, when our Conscious is One at an altar.

MANIK is a living demonstration for “seeing and acknowledging.”  The Deer’s power as a leader lies in the Law of Attraction. We all know a Divine Way of our own within. God’s gift of Free Will is a Divine Choice for each Human to make. When we hold an Intention of Faith and we see another light the candles and say the prayers, we will remember where to go. God will lead our heart there when we are conscious of the choice and remember an altar is the place to See and Be Seen and where all the Truth of Love is shared.

The Mayan priest is not a preacher, but one who stands silently on their Own Truth. A Deer doesn’t defend its ground. The Deer holds a Gift of Vigilant Observation. Wherever the Deer stands, the whole will know is a safe place to be. We never have to defend choices made for the Sake of Love. An Almighty God is the Author and the Protector of our Divine Mission.

God’s Love is the Light that will lead us into the “darkness.” The Truth of the Unknown is that it is the Beautiful Place of all OUR possibilities. Every orbit of every Star is a journey into the Darkness of the Unknown. By Divine Design, we won’t get lost. The journey always leads us back home. The Elders described the journey as “tracks of Light.” From the Truth of Love in the center, we travel to the parameter – the limits of what we already know how to do, and the limits of our faith. In the darkness we are given the Light of the Experience that we carry back home leaving “tracks of Light” for others to see. They will see the journey to the darkness will always lead back to the Light.

OUR OWN Dream lies in the Unknown, waiting for a Choice of Faith and Our Divine Intentions for carrying out the Mission of Love. Our Human Ego is inclined to look around to see what everyone else is doing. The choice of possibility given to our Ego will lead us to compare our self to another and our ways to another. God didn’t intend for us to create our impression of someone else’s dream. God intended us to start from scratch, so it would be OUR Expression. God intended us to know that we conceived our own Genius idea through a Divine Communion. The “rules of our game” will be to toss out all the ideas we thought we had to follow, because other humans did it that way. We will Willingly and Gladly enter into the “Darkness” when we know the Light of our own Divine Genius lies there.

The Way to enter the Darkness is a Choice to Open our Heart and reach out a Hand to God. The “Unknown” means we won’t know what to do. To grasp the Power from Above, we will choose to believe that God will share every provision, and Answer every prayer. We’ve chosen a Divine Intention.

Deer/MANIK makes us Conscious of the Spiritual Tools we are given through all our rituals, ceremonies, altars and prayers. The Deer is Gifted with Vigilant Conscious. Our Consciousness is the Power to carry out our Divine Intentions. Of all the tools that MANIK shares, its Highest Tool is a Provision for every Human limitation. There is NO WAY we can fail when our journey is guided by perpetual Consciousness to an altar of Truth and Love. Our Heart knows it. We only need to See it to Remember.

To all my relations, may we know our Greatest Stability in the Divine Reflection above is out on a limb, standing on the ledge of human’s Power, where we will Feel the Hand of God. We will know our own Faith in the darkness of the Unknown. May we hold gratitude for the Darkness that will reveal our own Greatest Light. May we know our creation that will be different, will be a manifestation of our own Divine Discernment of the Creator’s Inspiration. The credit will be all our own and we will know it, because it was raised from scratch.

May we uphold our Pillars of Faith by lighting our candles, saying prayers through our rituals, ceremonies, and offerings. May we remember to offer a Blessing for every experience and every living thing as a prayer for the Whole of God’s Creation. May we stand on the Truth that a Divine Cause WILL HAVE a Divine Effect. We are Divinely led to do it.

God has a Divine Reason for everything created, including the Intentions of Time. Through a Blessing of all things, we can establish a Divine Reason for everything we do. We can choose Dreams that are led by a Divine Purpose. Our creation will hold its own genius. We’re on the wrong track if we see another human’s creation and try to measure whether one will be better than the other. ALL our creations will be the Most Beautiful Expression of our Own, from the Inspiration of Harmony and Equity given one-by-one to the all-in-one.

May we embrace the Unknown as the place for the Creation of Light. May we see how beautiful it is that God wanted to see what WE would create from the Beginning to the End. Because we will Love it as our own, we can stand on the Truth that God’s Hand will complete the creation as a Divine Thing of Beauty.

There are only 3 more stairs to climb and we will reach the Truth of the Divinity of our Intention to create Heaven on Earth. Our Divine Justice is measured by our Intention.  Faith in Answered Prayers is as good as Believing. God knows our New Life is meant to be a Miracle.

in lak’ech, I am another you,

Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN

My heart breaks for all the living things reaching beyond the fires on Earth and so many already lost. I’m offering my heart and mind as a place for the life of Spirit. The Elders taught us that we can help dying things make their passage to the stars. Either on the plane of physicality or in the realm of Spirit, we would offer a blessing of cornmeal and tobacco to the nose. Then we draw a sacred breath of their Spirit to hold as we release the breath to the Great Spirit. First we always ask permission and for Divine Guidance to help us carry it out in a good and worthy way. May we Honor them by remembering their Beauty. Heartbreak for life IS a “CHICCHAN call to the heart.” We don’t have to know a perfect way, only the humility of our Intention to carry it out in a thoughtful and worthy way. We can ask our own Spirit to offer a silent prayer on behalf of the whole We can choose a Heaven on Earth with a Divine Agency that Intervenes. Faith is as good as Believing. God knows the Time and Place of a miracle.

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.

[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.

Grand Mayan Elder, Don Alejandro

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. 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.

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!
