9 Deer / MANIK – A Revival of Spirit: Day 9 of 13

THE TRECENA OF STORM/CAUAC: A RENEWAL AND REGENERATION OF SPIRIT

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. Tone 9 is a Divine Intention that engages the Power of Trinity, to the High, Higher, and Highest Power of Discernment. The Mayan Elders warned that there could be great suffering to bear, if we fail to choose this step in the process of our Creation.

There is ALWAYS more to Know about a New Truth we are given. To actually climb a pyramid, the only way to keep your balance is to already be leaning on the next higher step. On Tone 8 we were given a zenith light to see our future. No matter how bright the ideas may be, we can fall back to the Vibration of 7, to weigh the truth all over again. We are given a Divine Tool of to see all the pieces and parts drawn together – the 2020 Vision of our Dreams.

The circle on the glyph illustrates the Strength of the Deer in a gift of Vigilant Consciousness. Training our eyes to the Highest Truth all around, we conceive our own Holy Ground… a place we know is Safe and Sound because we used the Gift we were given to always know a Truth of Unconditional Love. We were given a simple way of Divine Magic, by just counting the Blessing and Miracles we’ve already Witnessed as the Truth.

Where two are united in the same Divine Cause for Prayer, there is Power Beyond the sum of the pieces and parts. We engage the 3 + 3 + 3 of the Holy, Holy, Holy. When a Trinity Below aligns with a Trinity Above, the Power is raised to the 9, a number that can be expressed as an exponential value – 3 x 3. The “x” is the Divine Operation of “unknown exponential value” that will guide us to our Highest End.

The next higher step for Believing lies in the Big Picture. All Divine Gifts hold powers beyond Human imagination. We can assume that what is beyond understanding can’t be Seen in one glance. There is always a Divine Reason we needed to know. That Higher Truth is seeing the Divine Meaning and Purpose of the WHOLE experience.

If we knew the end from the beginning, we’d Leap to the end without fulfilling the Reason for Life, to witness Love from a Beginning to an End. Forgetting was included in the Design so we could reflect on another end of the scale. The darker our path may be, the Greater the Light will be to see our way through. In the darkness we grow the Inner Strength of Spirit – practicing our part in the Whole Dance. We have a Time and Place in the spotlight of God’s Love. Forcing our way through the Winds of Change, when we break through the resistance, the Power of our Effort will be known in the future when there is Nothing Holding us back. Like the Seed, a Divine Mystery led it to the Light that waited Above.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan Priest, the One that dedicates a Daily path to an altar. We need the Highest Light to walk in the Integrity of our own Truth. The proof is in all the ways we forget, in all the Wisdom that can be lost in a moment we don’t APPLY Our Truth. Beings of Duality HAVE to be given an experience to Know the Truth. We can hear lots of encouraging words we HOPE are True and even hold Faith as True, when we believe the thoughts were Divine. Yet we can’t claim the Truth as our own without our own experience that bears out the Divine Truth. When we EXPERIENCE the Truth and FEEL the Truth, Believing is ours to Have and Hold.

 

MANIK resides in the West, our Unknown Future. No matter where we stand in the Medicine Wheel of Life, the answer is always right in front of our eyes. Standing in the West, we face the East – where a Divine Light started every day with that One Shared Dream that we can change our Life today, following the Truth we Know and Hold Faith to Believe.  The Elders say, “It’s not whether you will do it. The question is, Will You Remember?

Deer/MANIK holds the Element of Water. In the chaos of life our Water gets stirred up. Water holds the Ether of our Divine Consciousness. The Essence of our True Identity, that can still the waters of our Human emotions. The Mayan priest uses Holy Water for the purpose of baptisms, blessings, purification, and initiation. MANIK offers the Living Water to restore the Equilibrium from the Divine Truth within.

At an altar we will remember the Key to the Divine Kingdom is Forgiveness. All the experiences known to Human are Divine.

“Suffering” is the way to the Highest Truth we can never forget. We are called to the Moment, and drawn to our Last and Highest Hope. The Holy Water in every Human is given back to Mother Earth. We were Born from Water, and the Ether, the Spirit of Humanity, is present in the Rain that falls, that runs through the rivers and streams, following a course of Least Resistance – drawn back to the One and the Same water where ALL Life was born.

The Popol Vuh, Sacred Book of the Quiché Maya People

The Beginning

“All is silent and calm. Hushed and empty is the womb of the sky. THESE, then, are the first words, the first speech. There is not yet one person, one animal, bird, fish, crab, tree, rock, hollow, canyon, meadow, or forest. All alone the sky exists. The face of the earth has not yet appeared. Alone lies the expanse of the sea, along with the womb of all the sky. There is not yet anything gathered together. All is at rest. Nothing stirs. All is languid, at rest in the sky. There is not yet anything standing erect. Only the expanse of the water, only the tranquil sea lies alone.  There is not yet anything that might exist. All lies placid and silent in the darkness, in the night. All alone are the Framer and the Shaper, Sovereign and Quetzal Serpent, They Who Have Borne Children and They Who Have Begotten Sons. Luminous they are in the water, wrapped in quetzal feathers and cotinga feathers. Thus they are called Quetzal Serpent. In their essence, they are great sages, great possessors of knowledge. Thus surely there is the sky. There is also Heart of Sky, which is said to be the name of the god.” (Huracán)

The Life of our Spirit never ends. All that we could be was there as a shining Light in the Water from the Beginning. At an altar we Remember that a Divine Creator said, “This Shall BE.”

The Deer’s only “shadow” is having kept every Spiritual Tool it has ever known to stand. Even our Spiritual path can feel like chaos when we attempt to reach through every single tool we hold. We are guided to choose ONE Path, the One that holds our Highest Potential for believing. All the Divine Paths follow an order and chronology of Divine Initiation. Higher Truth of Power can corrupt us. Without the Wisdom to Know, it can so easily be led to Human ends.

For that One Path, Deer/MANIK offers the Highest Truth of Creation. From the High, Higher, and Highest One, there is One Truth – Unconditional Love – that holds the Power to overcome EVERY Human limitation. The Truth exalted in the Highest Light is Divine Justice, a provision shared with Human Above and Below. Humanity as One, has shared that same Vision of Beauty for ALL Time. We have all been Seen by the same Heart of Sky. We all share the experience of Living in the Light and the Truth written in the wind.

To all my relations, may we see the Big Picture and take the Time to Know that every meaning and purpose of Life was Designed for Love. May we Feel the Divine Truth through the Lion’s Gate that roars a Sound in our Heart that can bring every cell of One Divine Body to Life. May we give thanks for a Time and Place we are Meant to KNOW.

As the fates of Divine Providence are turning under the cycle of CAUAC, may we claim the Divine Purpose. Some will rise and others will fall into darkness. Though we will be blessed either way. There WILL BE JOY in the Morning.

May we honor the Highest priest who was called to share the Light in the 13th Baktun, a cycle marked by the Truth of Answered Prayers. Don Alejandro is our Beloved Tata, who carried out a life dedicated to the Mission.

All we have to do is follow and obey an Intention to remember that we DO LOVE ONE ANOTHER and that Being with Mother Earth is an end all Dream vacation for Every Human who has Seen and Acknowledged the Truth that LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. We don’t need to understand what no human can conceive. A Miracle was promised in our Perfect Time and Place.

in lak’ech, i am another you

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

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

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.
