2 Deer / MANIK – Transition of Light: Day 2 of 13



2 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality. We began in Unity as One. On Tone 2 we are separated from the Whole, into the realm of our own Human Consciousness. Human conceives the Truth through a binary process. We are inspired by Divine Truth that can establish the Faith to Believe. The Truth becomes our own through the Wisdom of Experience.

We are Beings of Duality, designed in symmetry with 2 Identities, a Human Nature and a Divine Nature. Duality is the way of Human Consciousness that learns by comparing one thing to another. Our Divine Mission is to balance a Life Above and Below.

Through Divine Gifts of Consciousness, when we Know the Truth of one thing, we’ve acquired a Truth to know many things. Our Divine Genius is a Gift of Application to carry Truth to Higher Ground. Knowing One Truth, we can expand our Wisdom. “If this is True, then…” is the “operation of thought” through which to conceive the Higher Consciousness of Truth. When we count our blessings, we realize they never end. In the same way, that one question asked over again WILL lead us to Highest Wisdom Above.

CIMI is guiding us to a Divine Life. The Creation of Divine Consciousness is a never ending search for Truth. We were drawn to a path by the Calling of our Heart to know the Mysteries of Life and our Place in the Universe. Like CIMI, we have the Gift to See the Future. We only need to Look to See it. We know what to expect of Time and the Seasons of Life. The Tzolk’in offers the calendar of our Creation. The Future that lies at the end of this journey is the Highest Truth that will sweep all our worldly illusions of powerlessness away. The future that lies ahead is the Truth that will set us Free to Claim the Life of our Dreams – an experience of Life that unfolds in Beauty as our Heart Desires.

On Tone 2 we consider our own way to carry out a Divine Intention of Love for the Whole. We compare our past to the future and consider what new choices we would make. We consider our Human limitations to carry them out. We might compare our Self to someone else, and how we are “more or less” equipped for the purpose.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, who is dedicated to a path to a Divine Altar on behalf of the Whole. The Mayan priest is not a preacher, but one that follows its own way, lighting the candles, saying the prayers, and observing the Sacred Ceremony that is ordered by the calendar. The Mayan priest serves as a Guiding Light to Remember. MANIK holds the power of Harmonic Resonance. Through the purest Tone of Love, the Deer emanates the Sound of Love that calls lower vibrations into sympathy. When MANIK kneels at an altar in Sacred Ceremony, others See and Remember the Time to turn to their own prayers.

Deer/MANIK is a symbol of Stability. The Deer is said to uphold the Pillars of our Faith with one foot firmly planted in each of the 4 directions. The Deer leads by silently standing on its own Truth without defense. The glyph illustrates the eye of the Deer in the circle to symbolize the Deer’s gift of Vigilant Consciousness. Wherever the Deer stands as been Consciously Chosen as a Place of Higher Ground. Our own Divine Truth is like Common Sense that leaves no questions. The glyph shows the Hand, another name for MANIK, reaching to grasp the thread of Ether that completes a Divine Circuit to the Highest Power Above. The Deer follows the path of Humility. Kneeling to the Highest Light Above, the Deer is Free to Live by its Faith in the Up Above. The Deer seeks to Understand rather than be Understood. We can stand in the Truth of our Light when we are Vigilantly Consciousness of our own Intention to claim the Light of Unconditional Love for the Whole. 2 Deer/MANIK guides us to a Divine Choice to dedicate our Life to the Divine Meaning and Purpose by following a Daily Practice of Faith.


The Dream of Inspiration we were given was to claim a Life of Light, Love, and Happiness that is guided by the Blessing of a Divine Provision. We’re claiming a New and Higher Dream for our Life. We could do the same old things we did before and never reach beyond the Higher Ground we claimed yesterday. To balance our climb to the Top of the Pyramid, we must always be reaching to the next higher step. Our Ascension was guided by 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN. The Truth of Answered Prayer was seated in the Human body as a Serpent of Light. We shed the skin of our old life so we can Expand and Grow. We are called by this trecena of “darkness” to apply the Truth, to reach farther, higher, and beyond to a Higher Investment of our Heart and Mind.

The Intention we choose will be our Offering for the Sacred Exchange of Divine Wisdom. The Elders always said to bring an offering the represents the value that you expect to receive in the Sacred Exchange. The Jaguar guards in stealth the Sacred Sites and Temples. To enter into the Holy, Holy, Holy, we employ the Jaguar’s “earth magic” of Gratitude. Counting our Divine Blessings will guide us to a New and Higher Offering of our Time, Intention, and the Sacred Movements of Love.

“Who are you? What do you want?” Those were the two divine questions the Elders gave to seek the Truth of all things, including our Self. Today we are called to an altar to kneel in humility to ask our Self the questions.

Deer/MANIK resides in the West, the direction of the Unknown experiences in our future. Holding the Element of Water, Deer/MANIK speaks to us through the language of the Heart. The Mayan priest uses Holy Water for Blessings, Initiations, Baptisms, and Purification. Today we are offered a Blessing to our Heart and Soul. All the questions we ask our Self and the Way they make us Feel is our Divine Communion with the Creator. On Tone 2 we share the True Condition of our Heart. Atoned with the Creator through the Offering we Bring, our Blessing will be a Divine Vision of our Future. Tomorrow our Heart will be Guided toward the Highest Truth of experience waiting for Our Time and Place.

On Tone 2 we long to be reconnected with the One. 2 Deer/MANIK is a Calling from our Heart to the Divine Path we will follow to our Next Higher Ground of Truth that is Multiplied to Abundance.

To all my relations, may we draw near the Light that always shines for us at an altar within. May we surrender Our Way to a Higher Way. Holding the Truth of our Ascension, may we Remember the Truth of Answered Prayers, and the Divine Provision for all our Human limitations. May we give thanks to a Higher One for a Power of Love to change what is beyond our Human reach.

May we begin the day in the Light, looking to a Sun that creates our Life, Light, and Happiness. May we give our Whole Self without any reservation, asking a Power Above to call us to a new and higher way to serve our Divine Mission of Love.

Grandfathers, Grandmothers, the Heart of Sky, and the Hearth of Earth – Here I am. Please guide me to what you would have me choose today. Lead me to be a Hand for your Divine Love in the world on behalf of the Whole. Open our eyes to the Divinity of ALL our ways that reach for the Truth of God Above.

in lak’ech, i am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN


Ascended 07/17/2020, 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN) Mourning the loss of John Lewis and honoring a dedicated path he followed for the Whole. May he always be remembered for a Life Intention of Peace, Harmony, Equity, in Humility as a Voice of Divine Truth for the whole. May his words live on as a Light of Wisdom in our Consciousness. With Gratitude for a Divine Provision, RIP John Lewis.

“I say to people today, ‘You must be prepared if you believe in something. If you believe in something, you have to go for it. As individuals, we may not live to see the end.”

“If you’re not hopeful and optimistic, then you just give up. You have to take the long hard look and just believe that if you’re consistent, you will succeed.”

“Never give up. Never give in. Never become hostile… Hate is too big a burden to bear.”

~John Lewis



I’m grateful for a Light that Guides us and Love we can KNOW and FEEL, given without any conditions.

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

Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.

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. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
