THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN: A DREAM WITHIN REACH
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 13 marks our Ascension to a Higher Consciousness. Ascension carries us beyond the end of our Creation. The Dream of Love becomes the Truth that came before. We hold it now with an Understanding of our own conception. The Seed becomes a Dream for the future. From the past we see new mountains we could climb. Ascension offers the Sense of wanting to try again, or to begin something new. We want to try living again, applying the Truth we didn’t know before.
Eagle/MEN offered a view from a higher perspective to see the Light at the end. We were inspired by the “Light” of a Divine Dream and a Truth of the Unlimited Possibility. The Eagle shared a way of focusing on the prize and never turning away, leaving the Time and the Vision of its Whole Beauty in the Creator’s hands. We learned that Human imagination will never carry us as High as a Divine Creator intended us to Grow.
Deer/MANIK symbolizes our Divine Mission in Life. We learned at the beginning that Our Way to reach our Highest Hopes and our Highest Aspirations is through a dedicated mission of Consciousness. MANIK is also known as the Hand. The glyph illustrates a human hand grasping a thread of ether between the forefinger and thumb to complete a Circuit of Divine Power. Love is the Power to move everything toward the Light of the Universe.
MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, who counts the days and carries out the rituals and ceremonies on behalf of the Whole. MANIK is a symbol of the Highest Integrity. Standing with one foot planted in each of the 4 directions, the DEER holds the Vigilant Consciousness of its own Truth. The Deer never looks away from a path that leads to an altar. The Deer is always looking for the Highest Ground. Where the Deer stands, others will follow. The Deer holds the Power of Harmonic Resonance. Emanating the Light of Faith in Divine Truth, the “vibration of pure love” will always draw lower vibrations into sympathy. Deer/MANIK dedicates itself to holding its own “perfect pitch” of Love. We are drawn one Tone at a Time from the place where we Kneel in Humility to a Higher One.
Deer/MANIK is the Giver of Spiritual Tools. Through Vigilant Consciousness of the Truth we held Faith to Believe, Divine Thoughts will be the Tools for our way. With every doubt and fear, we’ll be prepared to turn back to the Truth and the Time and Place where we found it before. MANIK shares the Vigilant Consciousness to REMEMBER. The Elders say, “It’s not whether you can. But, Will you Remember?” Truth will lead the way. Obstacles will disappear when we Remember the Promise of Answered Prayers.
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.
13 is the symbol of theurgy, a Divine Gift. We were given the Power through ritual and sacred ceremony to call for the Intervention of a Divine Agency. Through the practice, we invest Movement and Momentum to the Highest Intention Above. We add more Power to Love when we create a SOUND in the Universe. A Divine Creator of Sound can Hear us. At an altar, we can Feel the Sound of the Creator’s Love. 13 is the Truth of Answered Prayers… the One Truth to uphold our Highest Hopes and every Last Hope.
The Deer holds one special tool, the most powerful of all – a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. By Divine Design our last hope is a prayer. The Offering we bring to an altar is the Truth of something Greater. LOVE IS Seeing and Acknowledging the Light in another. When we kneel at an altar a Supreme Creator Feels us Loving Back. Every Truth we claim will be a Spiritual Tool a Divine Hand can use EVERY time we’re raised to an Intention to add the “sum of the whole” Truth of Love we hold within. A Divine One can “light up the truth” we didn’t see, but our Heart Remembers is the Truth.
MANIK resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Future. MANIK shares the coordinates of the Divine Destination at an altar in a Sanctuary within. From there, we will Feel the Truth and Remember. MANIK holds the Element of Water used by the Mayan priest for Blessings, Purification, Initiations, and the Baptism of Spirit. The Seed of a Higher Dream is consecrated and blessed. A Divine Name was passed on as the Scion.
The Seed is finished. We witnessed the Possibilities of a New Creation together. Sharing Dreams Above and Dreams Below, the Beauty we Saw together is sealed within the Seed. The Creator’s contribution will be an end of Unlimited Possibility to beautiful to imagine, so a New Seed will know the “mystery” that WILL BE revealed. Through the Element of Water, MANIK can speak directly through the language of the Heart.
To all my relations, may we claim the Truth of our own limitations. May we APPLY the Truth as Wisdom, that we’ll Remember the Truth of a Higher Power when we’re kneeling at an altar, humbled by Human limitations.
May we ask the One Above to help us Remember the Truth of Answered Prayers. When we do, may we go to the altar to add another Truth to the Whole. May we give the Creator a Hand, choosing Divine Thought that a Lord of Time can draw together as the Sum of the Whole, in every Moment we Need to Know.
May we consecrate a New Life with a Blessing of Living Water, and Honor an Old Life that gathered Truth we knew before. May we dedicate our Way as the Life of a Savior, born to share the Truth of Love and the Salvation of Forgiving our Self and the Whole.
in lak’ech, i am another you

13 Deer/MANIK (Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi)
Definition of the Tones and the Day Signs by Ian Xel Lungold
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.
