THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 3 raises the Intention of Movement. We bring a Dream to Life when we find a Divine Reason to Move on it, or to disseminate the idea of our inspiration. Sound creates a new vibration in the Universe. The Tone and the Frequency, the Sound, is established by the Reason. When we step out for a Divine Meaning and Purpose, the Dream of Love becomes the Song that will play to its Own ends.
ANY Human dream can be transformed into a Divine Dream by establishing a reason of Love. Watching Joseph Rael’s video of his creation of art, he begins by drawing in thin air above the canvas. He creates the field of energy for the Intention between himself and the canvas. He made the step of Inspiration a tangible effort of the creation to remember. We can manifest every creation for a Reason of Love, when we remember the Light that Love will share with the Whole.
Offering/MULUC holds the Element of Fire to change matters into “pure energy.” Fire holds a Life and is directed by the Wind/IK, the Breath of the Creator. Those who followed the path of the firekeeper guarded the Life of the Fire. Personal conversation wasn’t permitted at our ceremonies around the Fire, and no offering was made without permission given by the firekeeper. “Permission to feed the fire?” A gift of tobacco was offered from the left hand. The “left hand” is the Receiving Hand and the “right hand” the Giving Hand. Giving from the left hand acknowledges the Fire as Highest Giver, the One that shared the first Offering.
Our breath of Intention was shared with the offering 4 times before the release. The Fire was given its own life to the end. The firekeeper always announced the direction that the first log fell.
Offering/MULUC offers the Highest of all Reasons to Love, as an Intention to Pay Back and to Pay Forward the Divine Blessings from Above. Through an Offering we are Atoned with the One Mind of Divine Consciousness. A Divine Creator Intended a Relationship of Love. The Creator wants to be Seen and Acknowledged. The offering we bring should always reflect the value of the Gift that we receive.
The first step whenever we carry an offering to the altar is to kneel and give thanks for our Blessings. It makes a difference when we actually go down the list. That’s the way to realize that the Blessings never end. On MULUC we know that the only offering that is worthy is a Sacrifice from the Heart. When the Love of a Divine Creator is the Reason for our creation, the end will always be a thing of Beauty. Through an Offering to Love and Forgive, we manifest the Divine Reason, our Gift of Salvation for the Whole.
Offering/MULUC is the Day Sign of a Savior. We build faith creating all our Human Dreams in the world below. Love is a Power to change us whenever we hold the Intention. From up above we are being drawn to the Truth of our Divine Identity – a Personification of the Creator’s Light. Our ethereal Intention is for the One Above to be Seen and Acknowledged by the Whole. We are changed by every Truth of Divine Provision. The closer the Relationship we create with the One Above, the More a Divine Light can work through us. MULUC reminds us that a Holy Gift always comes with the Sacrifice – Love without conditions.
It’s easy to Love without conditions when we’re Paying Back and Paying Forward. It means we saw the Blessing that was already given. We have nothing to lose when Love between the Human Being and the Creator overflows. For every Offering there is a Sacred Exchange. It is the fundamental Intention that we learned as “the picking.” We were taken to a field of yarrow. We should always look for a healthy family for the sacrifice. Ones that grow alone still need time to know a family. We acknowledge Life and asked permission. If one stem didn’t easily give way, we offered it a blessing and moved to another one. Nothing was taken without Seeing and Acknowledging Life and offering the Sacred Exchange of Love. We can pick just as thoughtfully at the grocery store before we lay a human hand on what we will receive as the offering. Maybe the grocery store is the most important place, where the offering overflow, yet we hardly see or acknowledge what a blessing that really is. We can offer the blessing that wasn’t given when a living thing was taken from their Time and Place.
The Creator’s first gift was Life in a Living world. We are drawn into Unity with the Whole Life of The Creation when we take the Time to See and Acknowledge that we are feeding on the Life of Mother Earth. Something always dies for something else to live. The Fire can burn away the flesh of our Ego to create the “Hollow Bone.” We can become a Divine Instrument of Love, a Hand for the Creator, when we allow the Blessings to pass through. The Deer/MANIK guides the way of Vigilant Consciousness to see our own ways to create the Light. Love is always seen and acknowledged by Beauty. The Jaguar showed us the way to Love in stealth, so the only Light that would be visible would be shining as the One.
Loving Human Beings with all our forgetful ways can sound like a big sacrifice. The Bible suggests turning the other cheek 7 x 7. That never sounded like an easy thing. Though, we can also remember that Human always sees things “hard” before we engage a thought of Divine Possibilities. Unconditional Love can be the EASIEST offering. We can create miracles that are True every day. (The Monkey/CHUEN could find lots of ways.)
When my children were in grade school we attended a church that offered an Intention for “God sightings.” We kept a journal through Lent. Each evening around the dinner table we shared our reports. When you haven’t made a practice of counting your blessings for a while, it can start with small tangible things. I remembered an open parking space on the trip to the grocery that was waiting on the front row near the door. We claimed Divine Provisions of all kinds that grew more meaningful every day. There were always happy thoughts around the table. Remembering years later how I claimed that God saved me that spot. I realized I could manifest that Truth for someone else. Love always has an exponential effect when it’s a Divine Truth. I was inspired to leave the empty spot, so that the Divine Place that was waiting WAS left by God’s Inspiration for someone who would follow. We can make Miracles of Love the Truth. I saw a penny on the ground this week and dropped a quarter next to it to multiply the blessing. Random acts of kindness are a Divine Way to Love without any conditions. And, we leave our own Divine Thoughts to follow. When I remember to leave the empty parking spot, I can’t help imagining who will find it and if they will see the “God sighting.” When Love is the reason, it’s easy to believe that the One Above will mark the Beauty.
When we Love invisibly, only the Creator’s Light will shine.
We are manifesting the creation of a Divine Human Being. All the instructions were written within. We were given the primal instincts to Love, just like we see in every other living thing. Our Love is marked as Divine and Beautiful for all our limitations, and Love that is a Choice. The idea of loving as a choice doesn’t feel like it would be very rewarding. We want Love “to happen to us.” We have to remember that everything is a mirror reflection in the realm above. When we Offer Unconditional Love, the Feeling will come AFTER. (We were born to Give like the Creator Gives… the first to give.) We can be the “first to give back” Below, what was first given from Above.
MULUC is a symbol of Water everywhere, the Moon, and our Human emotions. We can be ruled by our Human emotions when we face the injustice of someone else’s Human Choice. It hurts to make the sacrifice to Forgive. Yet, when we do, Love suddenly reappears in the picture. All the Truth we filtered out is plain to see. We REMEMBER WHAT WE FEEL. It takes Feelings to See and Acknowledge the Truth of another Human Being. Through every sacrifice, a Divine Mother will move us toward the blessing of Compassionate Love.
We were given a Heart and our Emotions to FEEL Love. We never “deserve” to be unhappy. We never deserve to follow the thoughts that will only lead us further into the darkness. MELANCHOLY over Time and Dreams yet unfulfilled is a body of thought that can be Transformed by a Divine Provision. We only have to remember to Ask for a Hand from Above. Sometimes the “Deer’s path to an altar” doesn’t feel like a Divine Journey. When we’re caught up in Human doubts and fears, it can feel like we don’t have Time to go there. And, what good would it do? Yet, when I go just for a minute to count my blessings, the minute is multiplied when I find the place that feels like “home.” A trip to the altar for help changes everything. Human will REMEMBER prayers we Consciously Offer at an altar. Our Spirit will Remember the Truth of the Sacred Exchange.
The pain of Human emotions are healed when we follow the guidance of MULUC. Injustice may still hurt, but we will never have to suffer, knowing the pain of Forgiving is a Divine Offering of the Highest Order. When we can set Human emotions aside for a Divine Cause, a Divine One will multiply our Faith in the Divine Effect… when it’s Our Time in the future.
MULUC represents the Living Water of Love poured out as Loving the Creator Back. Our tears will be the Holy Water. The glyph illustrates a single drop of water suspended above the Whole. When we bring an Offering we are Seen and Acknowledged from Above. The Sacred Exchange is seeing the Light the Creator sees in us. We are changed by the Truth in the Light. Our Heart will know “we are more than enough” to carry out the Divine Design for our Life. When one drop is returned to the whole, Love will create the ripples through the whole.
The Cherokee call it The River. “The River is the “Fountain of Life” and represents the fluid of the cosmos to fluids in the body, with the energy to clear all karmic debts, personally and on a mass level with fluidity and grace. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level.” (See Cherokee calendar links on the Daykeeper Resources page.) Love goes on forever when it is freely given back and forth.
To all my relations, may we begin a New climb of Transformation counting the blessings and the ways we could give back. May we remember how little things can mean a lot. May we be the invisible Savior that leaves a trail of Divine footprints behind.
We were given the Power to create “As Above, So Below.” May we remember that single thought of Love can begin a journey, counting our blessings. We look down at our feet for the perfect Time and Place for Love. We could suspend Love in mid-air for the one behind us to pass through in the checkout line. We can make Love True in any Time and Place. The Creator’s dream is the same, to be Seen and Acknowledged. Offering a Human Hand to that Divine Purpose, we hold the Scion’s Reason to Love.
May we offer the “happy dance” at the beginning for the Beauty that will be created in the end.
in lak’ech, i am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN
A DIVINE INHERITANCE: John Chapman, born in 1774, is an American legend known as Johnny Appleseed. He’s known for planting apple seeds as a means to open the new frontier for the settlers that followed. To claim a parcel of land required a commitment to plant an orchard of apples. Apples were a means to support life on the frontier, and as another source for pure “living water.” Johnny was also a missionary for The New Church (Swedenborgian, the Swedish Lutheran Church), leaving Swedenborg’s written tracts behind. Johnny’s Divine Inheritance was passed down to Ian Xel Lungold, a grandchild in the future. Ian shared the Light of the Tzolk’in. Born 12 Sun/AHAU in the Galactic Week of Offering/MULUC, Ian carried on a Divine Purpose to share the Light of Time with the world. Dreams for Love carry on and ripple through Time for the whole.

John Chapman was born under the Galactic Week 1 Eagle/MEN, 12 Transformer/CIMI. He manifested the blessings of a Divine Provision for those going through the chaos of a very major change in a new and unfamiliar landscape. He created Love to be seen in the future, under the direction of a Divine Hand of Time. An apple tree must have been a beautiful discovery of Divine Provision along the way. Ian also left behind the blessings of Time and the Seeds of Dreams for our future.
HOLDING THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR: The Power of Gratitude
I’m grateful that Human was given an Offering worthy to share with the Creator as a Sacred Exchange.

3 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The River is the “Fountain of Life” and represents the fluid of the cosmos to fluids in the body, with the energy to clear all karmic debts, personally and on a mass level with fluidity and grace. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.
