11 Deer / MANIK – Moved by Divine Trinity: Day 11 of 13



11 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 carries the Intention of Resolution. Like a Divine set of antennae, 11 tunes us in to a Higher Vibration of the Truth. Through a gift of clarity we can see a way to carry on, and a Divine Meaning and Purpose for Our Place in the Universe.

In the end, we are reaching to know that Our Life mattered. In every Human heart lies a Dream that we will be remembered for something greater than all our limitations.

Raised by the Wisdom of a Divine Mother, we learned that everything we want is ours in a Choice to Share the Dream on behalf of the Whole. All we have to do for Life to Matter, is for Life to Matter to us.

Deer/MANIK defines Human’s Mission, to be the Hand of God in the world below. MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, dedicated to make a trip to the altar to carry out the rituals, ceremonies, and prayers on behalf of the Whole. Hand is another name for MANIK. The glyph illustrates the Human hand that reaches to grasp a thread of Light and Hope, the Ether that connects us to a Divine Circuit of Power.

The Deer’s only means of defense lies on its head. With its own set of antennae, the Deer knows its highest application is the Mind in Vigilant Consciousness of its own Time and Place. On Tone 11 the Mayan priest climbs to the Highest altar with an Offering of Atonement. Kneeling in Humility, counting the Blessings of Love, a Supreme Creator shares the Truth of Love all around.


The Deer is a symbol of stability with one foot firmly planted in each of the 4 directions. It takes Vigilant Consciousness to hold the Truth of Love that’s all around. To Remember we have to turn to the Truth that’s Real that shines Above.

MANIK resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Journey. A Supreme Creator didn’t intend for us to find our way without a path of Light. We KNOW the thoughts that lead us to happiness, and we Know the doubts and fears that manifest the illusion that all hope is lost. To REMEMBER requires a path of Vigilant Consciousness.

MANIK is guided by a Divine Mission to follow the path to an altar as a living demonstration for the Whole. MANIK reflects the Light of Harmonic Resonance, the Power of a Vibration of Love that draws lower vibrations into sympathy. Humans are more inclined to follow when we aren’t told what to do. When we see another holding Faith, we Remember to turn to our own prayers.

The Mayan priest is Dedicated to a path of Vigilant Consciousness to uphold the Pillars of Faith and Remember the Truth that’s Real. The Mission of the Deer is a Choice to stand for Love. The Deer doesn’t have to defend the reason why or its Time and Place. Wherever the Deer stands silently is known to those who follow as a place of Holy Ground.

Deer/MANIK reflects the Clarity of Truth that we can’t force anyone to Love. No matter where we stand, there will be others that never see our Intention of Love. But there is One that always sees who can share the Light with others.

MANIK raises our Consciousness to the Love passed down forever and the Power of Love that is Known from the Highest Place. Grasping one thread of Divine Love, we conceive a Power that can last forever.

The Deer holds the Truth of Unconditional Love without end, and dedicates a path to the place where the Love is Remembered as the most important Truth of Life. There will always be One Above that remembers the Light we shared, and the One Above intends the Divine Justice for our Love to be Remembered in the Balance, Above and Below.

To all my relations, may we claim Love as the way. May we know that a  Supreme Creator can manifest the Truth through Divine Ways and Means. When we walk in Humility and Peace, so others can be drawn by an Unseen Force of the Creator’s Love.

We don’t have to Prove Love. Love holds the Power to PROVE itself. For all our declarations of Love, the words won’t mean a thing until we walk the walk. Others will Remember what we Do for Love.

May we Look for the Light in Everyone to be the One that sees the Light of who they really are.

May we carry out the rituals and sacred ceremonies on behalf the whole to uphold the Pillars of Faith in Answered Prayer. It only takes One Prayer for the Whole. We never stand alone. We are a herd, a pack, that Loves the Whole.

Faith is multiplied when two or more are aligned in prayer. Every One holds the Power to create a Divine Trinity for another. May uphold the Truth that every heart holds the same prayers for Love, some Seen and others Unseen. May our prayers be an Offering of Divine Trinity for every Time and Place.

May Give Thanks for those who share the Mission, and claim that their Love Matters in our Time and Place.

in lak’ech, I am another you

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

Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.

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.
