THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 13 marks the Day of Ascension. We rise from the 12 when the 2 below are aligned in a Divine Purpose. When 2 believe as 1, we are offered an exponential Power of Prayer. 13 symbolizes a Truth passed down from the Ascended Masters of Every Spiritual Path… the Power through ritual and ceremony to call upon the Intervention of Divine Agency. Prayer is the fundamental expression of Divine Communion. We were intended to share a Relationship. By a Divine Design, a Supreme Creator inspired a Divine Identity – Higher than our Human Nature.
Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest that demonstrates a Divine Mission. Deer/MANIK resides in the West, the Direction of the Unknown Journey of Life. Holding the Element of Water, MANIK relates to our Emotions. Water is the substance that holds the Ether of Spirit.
Water is a Gift from Father Sky. ALL Water is Holy and used by the priest for Baptisms, Initiations, Blessings and Purification. On the Holy Day of Ascension, we see how far we’ve come. Now we have perfect hindsight. We want to try again, or try something new. We want to reach for new horizons.
Deer/MANIK is the giver of Spiritual Tools, and said to keep every spiritual tool its ever used. Divine Thoughts shared are the tools through which we can Grasp Divine Truth. The glyph illustrates the Hand, another name for MANIK. The forefinger and thumb are shown grasping a thread of Ether that completes the circuit to a Divine Source of Power. The glyph also includes a circle as the Eye of the Deer. The Deer’s most used tool is the application of Vigilant Consciousness.
In the tradition of the Maya the Mayan priest is not a preacher, but one that is dedicated to its own path. The Mission demands integrity. The priest isn’t the perfect example, but a Human who has chosen a dedicated practice. MANIK serves the whole by helping others remember. The priest keeps Time and carries out the prayers and rituals as they are ordered on the calendar. The Deer holds the power of Harmonic Resonance, Through a pure intention from the heart, others are inclined to follow.
In every herd of Deer, one is assigned to be the Vigilant Witness in all 4 directions. The rest go about their way, keeping an eye on the One. If the One watching moves to another place, it’s wise to follow. The Deer is a symbol of stability with one foot planted in each of the 4 directions.
Number 1313: Tone 13 and uinal 13 represent the Number 1313. Number 1313 doubles and amplifies the Number 13. Number 1 relates to self-leadership and assertiveness, telling us that we create our own experiences with our Intentions, Thoughts, and Beliefs. Number 3 is a sign that we are surrounded by a Divine Agency, helping us focus on the Divine spark within our Self and others. The Ascended Masters are working through our thoughts to enable the highest and wisest choices, and to use our natural interests, talents, and personality to bring joy and uplift others. 1313 resolves to Number 8 (1+3+1+3=8), the Number of “pure spirit” and Abundance.
Deer/MANIK has a special tool – a Divine Provision for EVERY Human limitation. To Remember, requires vigilant consciousness. The Elders said two things about Spiritual Development. 1) You have to track the mind; and 2) To be successful you have to have the courage to look at yourself. It’s Easy when you’re in Divine Communion with Unconditional Love. It’s impossible if the end is Understanding by another Human Being. In a Right Relationship, we have an equal choice.
The Deer’s Power to defend itself in the world is standing still on its own Higher Ground. The Deer knows its on the highest ground from looking all around. We can’t explain what we FEEL is True. There’s no evidence to share with another Human, who just like us, has to see to believe for their Self.
MANIK is connected to the Power of Love without limits. The Deer silently upholds the Pillars of Believing in our Self. We can believe, when we know we’ve made a Vigilant Observation of all the Facts, and we make the sacrifice to follow what our heart says is true. Right and wrong don’t matter on a mission of Love. An Intention to Love covers everything. Human was bound to reach a limit. Deer knows the Truth that when we do, we’ll Remember Divine Power at an altar.
An Ascension guided by Deer/MANIK is the Consciousness to Know we can Stand. We are Divinely Guided and Gifted in Harmony and Equity. All we need to do to be a leader for others is to follow our own path.
To all my relations, may we bring an Offering of our Gratitude to our own altar. May we Give Thanks to Know Our Truth was meant to stand. So is the Truth of others worthy for Their Time. May we use the Sacred Right of Choice to claim the path our heart wants to follow. God sees all the ways Divine.
The Elders said, “It’s not what you Know, but whether you will Remember.” When we Remember to turn to a Divine Creator, may we remember to ask that our own blessings be magnified for the whole.
in lak’ech, i am another you

13 Deer/MANIK (Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi)
Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.
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.
