THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK: LIGHT FOR A NEW LIFE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 13 marks the Ascension of every climb. 13 is a symbol of theurgy, a Power given to Human to call upon Divine Agency through our rituals and prayers. There is exponential Power when our prayers are carried out through Movement. The Sound creates the Vibration. We send out a Call to the Universe. With every Offering to the One there will always be a Sacred Exchange. What we give for a Divine Purpose will always be returned as an Answer to our Prayers, the Feeling for Believing.
On Tone 13 we can see the Light that shines a New Way. We hold the 20/20 of hindsight, a very Common thing. In the Offering, we see more than just “what happened.” We see what it means. For all the darkness of the journey, we found a Light that was preparing to Break through. A Divine One Honors our Human limits and the Divine Intention to Live with all our Heart. A Divine Creator allows us to carry the ball as far as we can go, so when we fail, we’ll know it wasn’t because we didn’t try.
In the Divine ball game of Life, the loser who wins their Life has the hardest game to play. Their life was saved by the Hero. They were left with the hardest question. Did I give it my all? Or, did I “hold something back” to save myself? It’s a question we will ask whenever we see a chance to Love “walk away.” The Hero creates the Divine Intention to Give Back, and Pay Forward. When we know all the sacrifices that have been made for us, when hearts were worn on a sleeve. In the Light of an Offering to Love and Forgive, we’ll know a Reason to Balance the Truth with ALL the Love we CAN See. We are always a Hero when we make the sacrifice that Feels for another who can’t see. The Vigilant Eye of the Deer, seeing the Divine Light of Truth was given for US to See the Light on behalf of the one that can’s see it for themselves. Our heart will bend, knowing Every Human Being deserves to know their life is worth remembering.
The Offering of Deer/MANIK is shining a way to the Power of Love. Once we grasp a thread of the Divine Truth, we’ll have all the Light we need to live our brand new life. Storm/CAUAC is the midwife that delivers. CAUAC opens the path for the Light. When the Truth like lightning breaks, we see the whole landscape for a moment. We wish we could see it long enough to gaze at the image, though the Beauty is how it breaks into one big display as Light brighter than Sun came out of nowhere. Like the Truth comes out of nowhere, when a Divine Creator intends for us to know the Truth we Know.
Deer/MANIK holds the Element of Water and the Truth of our Spirit. Storm/CAUAC is the Power that Creates the Living Water, Air/Thoughts struck by a Light of Truth/Fire broke apart all the pieces and parts and sorted them by kind. Adding the Gift of Nitrogen, lightning delivers the “building blocks” for our Life… the Truth we know will stand as a way we will always remember.
CAUAC brings the Comfort of a Storm, after the Truth rains down its Light. Emotions that are all stirred up find their equilibrium with the Truth. We are returned to Peace with the Question of Love has been answered by a Holy Exchange. The Deer/MANIK walks the straight and narrow, balancing Truth on either side. We aren’t created to live the life of a martyr, whipping our self into shape. We aren’t led with a carrot and a stick.
Sometimes Life does happen to us in a realm where every Human Being is free to choose. Life is always “fair” in the Divine Balance, though the Balance is beyond Human’s wisdom and experience to know. In Humility, the Light of the Deer, the Truth of our Human limitations, we’ll claim the Divine Debt that we must pay.
Whenever we see a storm on the horizon our Common/Divine Instinct is to run for cover. The Truth and Light that rains down from Above, will turn us toward a Sanctuary within. CAUAC shares the Unbridled Light of Unconditional Love, that breaks to Love us and can find us wherever we are. CAUAC shares the Renewal and Regeneration of our Spirit to believe there IS a treasure when we see the Rainbow.
Whenever we receive a Divine Gift of Light and Truth – and the Unconditional Love of Human Forgiveness – we’re FREE to Live Again. All the doubts and fears that were tangled up in the dark and light of one another is swept away when we see the Power of the Sacrifice in every Offering to Love. The Brightest Light of Unconditional Love are the choices we can make, yet never fail. We may create obstacles, but we can Know the Divine Creator sees the way around it. The Truth of the Way will be straight to an altar where there are no boundaries to Love we can see forever.
In the 2nd uinal, we’ve been trying to discern Our Way to leave some Light behind. Which way should we go was the question. The Light to lead the way will always be known in the Sanctuary within. There, the Deer stands in silence, claiming its Holy Ground. We were guided to the One Way we will always know the Highest Meaning for everything.
The Seed of our new Life has been working its way through the darkness, learning to Live for an Unseen Light it Feels Above. For all we can’t See, we CAN Feel the fertile soil that holds the perfect conditions for us. We feel the growing warmth of the Light. CAUAC is the day we waited for to see the Light of a New Life on the otherside, and the path where all obstacles have been cleared for us by a Hand Above.
Our Sanctuary is the Consciousness of a Divine Provision, a place held under Divine Authority for everyone who reaches to know. We’ll know the Truth when the place looks real, just like every Dream we manifest in Faith becomes a solid-tangible Truth. We don’t have to make the Choice to Forgive to be loved forever. We were born Free to be anything we choose. There are no consequences for what we are “free to do.” We can Live a Divine Life of give and take when we know there’s not a bigger prize if we do (the carrot). There will be no punishment if we don’t (the stick). We can do whatever we want and the Creator will Love us. Through the Divine Gift of Unconditional Love, and the Brightest Light to see, we can see how beautiful it is when we DO make a choice for Love we didn’t have to make. We’ll see the Beauty in an Offering, and the fare that we didn’t have to pay. In the choice for Divine Compromise, we’ll see a brighter light within.
In a Divine Sanctuary, the Creator is the best friend that WILL keep ALL our secrets until we are ready to share the Light. We only add to the burden, when we choose a Human who won’t understand. We’ll Know when it’s safe to share, and when our Truth is only ours to know until we can turn it into the Light. A Gift of Telepathy is not a Power to read someone else’s thoughts. Our Body of Consciousness is our Divine Sanctuary. We can draw the boundaries as wide as they need to be, till we know the Balance of the Light. No one has the right to define our Life, our thoughts, or our meaning and purpose. We don’t sharing any light, telling someone else who they are, or what they should do. May we be open to ALL the Truth we hear, knowing there’s no right or wrong, just a choice that we could make.
To all my relations, may we Love a Divine Creator who takes the risk that we may never see the only Dream that’s worthy to hold as the Highest Truth. We don’t have to do a thing for anyone else, if that’s what we choose. We might grow taller and mightier as a Human Being if we do, but Love won’t have any legs to stand in the Storm. We won’t be a Light that another would turn to when it requires a sacrifice. We’d like to turn to one of the world’s billionaires who could fix so many things for the whole. But for all they’ve claimed for themselves, they can’t see a way to give up what is held on a ledger.
We were given the Path of the Deer to know the treasure greater than gold, a Light that Shines for us. The gold earned by Human is covered with Human blood, sweat, and tears. It belongs to the ones that created it. A Divine Provision of Love can never be corrupted as the means to its Divine End. No human was enslaved to earn it. No hand was employed against its will for reasons that couldn’t stand up in the Light. May we see the Beauty of a Power that can’t be shared by handing someone a piece of paper.
May we know the Value of Everything is meant to be measured by the Happiness it could buy as a Divine Blessing for the whole.
Years ago I attended a conference on how to create a business. In the beginning we were asked, “What is the next thing you need to start your business?” We all agreed on money. All we needed was an Angel with a capital investment. Our Answer was the Truth that we didn’t know what we were doing. We learned a simple truth. It wasn’t the money we needed, but what money could buy. A Human will more easily invest our blood, sweat, and tears when we believe in someone’s dream. We didn’t know what the money was for, and little idea of how the dream would look at the end. The most important Wisdom for Creation is FREE, when we share a Dream we Love. It’s a Choice to Balance Give and Take with Live and Let Live.
May we give thanks for Divine Truth that’s shared with our heart, when we need to see a Higher Way. May we kneel in Humility to the ONLY ONE who can keep a promise from the beginning to the end of time. When we make a Choice, may we speak plainly – “yes” or “no” so we can Hear the choice we made when someone asks us to bend. How big was the sacrifice? We can make some sacrifices to share a balance of happiness with someone else. We’ll Know when it’s a Divine Offering, and when we’re bending beyond the Truth of personal integrity. Love is the most important Truth, the legs to stand in Harmony and Equity.
May we know the Love is the only “consequence” we bear, when we see how much is given and how little we chose to give back.

The “Tzolk’in Field Guide” includes a Count of Days and aspects for days and the trecena, available to download in Volumes 1 and 2.
The “Destiny Kin Calculator” is another tool as an Excel spreadsheet calculator that works off the Kin number to know a Gregorian Date. I use it to find the Gregorian Dates for the Holy Days of the Tzolk’in. You can also use it to know when you’ll celebrate your next Mayan birthday.
13 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
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.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus. Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.
