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



9 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 raises the Intention of Patience. The Time is given to see the big picture. There is said to be suffering to bear for lack of insight if we fail to complete this step. Tone 9 is all about completion. Number 9 holds the value of 3 x 3, the exponential Power of Divine Trinity.

The Human Spirit is raised to maturity by Higher Reasons to Love. Our Heart was opened by the Light of Love to Feel the Truth. Storm/CAUAC is midwife like CIMI. CIMI holds our hand, and CAUAC is the midwife that delivers, opening a path to “See the Light.”

Storm/CAUAC guided us to see that we Belong to the Light. We know we belong to the one that saves our life. A “soft hand” is all it takes. Love holds us through our tears. The Light was not the end, but another beginning of a Life changed by Love.

On Tone 9 we see a meaning and purpose for the Light that will lead us to another end beyond our imagination. With Patience we can Realize the Truth of Cause and Effect. The Love paid back is multiplied beyond Human expectations, when the value is measured by the One Above.

For Human to grasp the Truth, we have to know a Reason why. The calendar reflects the synchronicity of Time. How will the Truth work to change our life? We can’t reach every Human hand there is to hold. How can we grasp every Human hand to lead them to the Light?

Deer/MANIK guides the Way to Carry the Light into the Future. It only takes One Human Demonstration of Love to see the Light of the Way. Looking for ways to Create the Sanctuary of Love, we always find the Truth at an altar, reaching in Humility beyond the “Truth we know.” The most Divine Wisdom is applying the Truth that we never know it all. Even our Divine Genius was an offering from Above.

MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest. The Deer is a nahaul/essence of Vigilant Consciousness. The Deer Knows it stands on Holy Ground, and the Deer knows Why. The Deer is a symbol of Stability with a foot planted in each direction. MANIK is dedicated to a Divine Purpose to Count the days, observe the sacred ceremonies, and make the daily offerings on behalf of the whole.

The Mayan High priest holds every Spiritual Tool passed down by every High priest that came before. Another name for MANIK is Hand. The glyph illustrates the Hand, grasping the thread of Light. MANIK Completes the circuit to a Divine Power Source. Tone 9 magnifies the Truth.



MANIK holds the power of Harmonic Resonance, leading by a power of attraction. The Mayan priest isn’t a preacher, but tone that prays on  behalf of the Whole. The Mayan priest is “another Human Being” dedicated to a Divine Purpose. Dedicated to a Divine Purpose, we hold the Power to Heal as “lightning in our blood.”

When we know someone is praying for us, we remember to say our own prayers.

9 Deer/MANIK completes the Truth to serve as a Hand in the Divine Creation. Our Heart is prepared the mission. MANIK resides in the West, the direction of an Unknown Future. We know it’s only a matter of Remembering.

The Elders always say, “It’s not what you can do, but Will You Remember?” We are drawn to Love by the Sound of the Universe.

MANIK holds the Living Water for Blessings, Purification, Initiation, and Holy Baptism. 9 MANIK completes our Heart with a Whole Investment (9) that manifests Truth of the Higher One (10). MANIK is said to hold one very special tool with the power to push away from every negative trail of thoughts – a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. When we can’t think of the Truth to save us, we can remember The One.

To all my relations, may we dedicate our Life to the Bigger Picture – the Creator’s Dream.

The Light will always lead us through the hard times with a “soft hand” of Love. We aren’t pushed into anything we aren’t ready for and we will Always know the Truth. We will know exactly when we need to know. May we be humbled by the “soft hand” that holds the Power of a Hurricane, when the Force stands in our corner. May we be Humbled by the Power of Love.

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m grateful to Witness the Beauty of Life, and to Know the Reason is Love.

9 Deer/MANIK fell at the Peak of the Lion’s Gate’s Portal during the last round of the Tzolk’in (08/08/2020). A door opened to the Dream of a New Life. This round, a Full Moon in Scorpio is raising a Passion that Burns within (April 26-27, 2021). Entering Scorpio at the 1st degree a Divine One will express the Truth of who we are. Love that is hidden will be revealed by a Hand from the One Above. The Dream will be the Light for us to carry to the Wasek Moon, the “High Water Mark” for the Buddha’s Blessing of Light. Our hearts will conceive the Intention for our Highest Offering of Prayer for the Whole at the Wasek Moon Festival, May 25-26, 2021. This round, CAUAC opens the way to a Higher Illumination in our future. Overnight, the Moon moves from Scorpio to the 10th degree of Sagittarius, directly across, aiming an arrow to our South Node – our Own North Star. The Wesak moon falls on 13 Earth/CABAN, an Ascension that is a Clarion Call to Live with all our Heart (May 25, 2021). Overnight we move to 1 Flint/ETZNAB, the Balance of Truth. Flint offers the One Truth that separates all the facts from fiction to sweep the way clear for the life of our Dreams. (We reach the next Lion’s Gate, 08/08/2021, on 10 Road/EB, marked as a Major Milestone on Human’s Road to Destiny. The Wesak moon can shine a Light to the future and the possibilities of the Haab Year 10 Wind/IK, a manifestation of Divine Truth.

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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
