10 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. Our Hopes or Fears become Real when we claim them as the Truth. We can claim the Truth of a worldly illusion, or we can claim the Truth of Love.

Manifestation always presents a challenge. To manifest any creation the Human has to claim the Truth. We were given Time by CIMI and the Divine Provision to Let go To Be. We can’t see the change as long as we’re pushing our limit. It’s when we let go and Live, we can Realize our “challenge” isn’t the same. An old issue feels changed by the way we see it. We can claim the Divine Truth of a Higher Evolution of our self, when we see the New Truth that is operating on its own. In the Whole Picture, we can see what was lost in the details.

Tone 10 presents the Time to claim “what happened?” Now we know. It depends on how we see it. We could claim the chore of Love as an endless duty, when the truth isn’t Here and Now. We reached the limit where all we care about was what we wanted in the beginning. And we can’t see it NOW. The Whole Truth of Love always lies in the future.

Deer/MANIK was waiting with the Ways and the Means to claim the Truth of Higher Love, and Higher Wisdom to apply the Truth of our Divine Possibility. The Deer is a symbol of stability with the legs to plant One in each  of the 4 directions. MANIK upholds the Pillars of Faith as the Day Sign of the Mayan priest. The duty of the Mayan priest was to Count the Days, make the Sacred Offerings on behalf of the Whole, and to observe the rituals and Sacred Ceremonies of Time.

The glyph illustrates MANIK as a Hand grasping a thread of Ether that completes a circuit of Power that Flows from the Hand Above. Hand is another name for MANIK. The circle on the Hand is the Vigilant Eye of the Deer. Vigilant Consciousness is the Deer’s gift to claim the Highest Truth.

The Mayan symbol for 10 reflects the Power of 2 Hands (5), a Hand Above and a Hand Below. When we complete the 9th step, we make Human’s Whole Investment to manifest the One Above. We Know when we’ve applied Time to a Divine Purpose, we were given a Hand in our own creation. Something was making it easier than it was before. Residing in the West, the direction of the Unknown, MANIK shares the Light for the Highest Way, along with the Highest Truth that we can claim for the Reason to go on.

Holding the Element of Water, MANIK can speak to the Heart through a Gift of Harmonic Resonance. MANIK can still the Waters that run deep. The Sound of MANIK’s Truth is sweet music to our Heart and Soul.  The Deer is the kind hearted one that holds a place within where an arrow can simply pass through.

There is a hunter’s myth to explain how the deer disappears after a sure strike. The way it goes, there’s a hollow place high inside the chest that an arrow can pass right through, if the arrow strikes in the moment the Deer exhales its breath.

The Deer holds every Spiritual Tool, like Don Alejandro, High Priest of the Mayan people, holds the staff and the medicine bundle, passed down by the 12 generations of Mayan priests who came before. It was his Mission as the 13th generation Mayan high priest, in the Time of the 13th Baktun, to share the Truth of the calendars and the Divine Meaning and Purpose for Time. Through a way of Vigilant Consciousness, up close with  Mother Earth, they learned the wonders of Time and the Universe. They learned it from the Truth within, seeing the correlation between Human’s life and the Seed and Life of the Corn. It’s still a mystery to the whole of humanity. “Must be aliens… to be smarter than us.”

The One Special Tool that MANIK holds is the Truth of a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. If we can claim that One Truth, our life will never be the same. When we know the Truth of our Self and the Whole Creation, we’ll see the end by Divine Design.

The Mayan priest uses the Element of Water for Baptisms, Purification, Initiation, and Blessings of Consecration. A path we chose to follow to Holy Ground is consecrated as Our Holy Ground. We are connected to the One when we are kneeling in humility at an altar, offering the “best we know” as the Truth we will follow in Faith that it is Divine Will. Human was given the Power to Name what is Sacred, when the Truth is spoken from the Heart.

Kneeling in the Light we remember the One Above who spoke Truth that we are Sacred and Beautiful. Silence is the Deer’s way to guard the Sanctuary of Holy Ground. The Vigilant Eye of the Deer must keep watch all the way around. The Deer vigilantly looks for “nothing” but the dark and light to see Movement and the Changes in the shadows and the Light. The Deer can’t afford to get lost in a detail. When something moves, the Deer moves to Higher Ground. We were stopped by Divine Design to see what happened. There is an “amen” at the end of every prayer. “Amen” claims the Truth.

To all my relations, may we claim our Highest Truth with the “Amen” and Live to See the changes within. When we stop trying, we’ll see the change in just “being.” May we begin every Divine Communion counting the blessings of every Day. May we always include the Truth the One will share tomorrow, before we say Amen. And, Give thanks again.

  • Human was given Beauty and Love for Happiness, in Relationship with a Divine Set of Characters.
  • The Consciousness of our Spirit was given the Happiness of Truth and Wisdom.

Together, they manifest the Mystery born of 2 aligned for One Divine Meaning and Purpose. Consciousness gathers all the details of Truth, and Human was given the eyes to see the Beauty of Life.

We Are who we are within the boundary of a Divine Equation. The more we amplify the Sound of our own Truth, the Higher the Truth we will know in Sacred Exchange. In the Reflection, silence speaks louder than the words of self-defense.

May we claim a Divine Provision when we come to the morning Light. May we feel the Light that passes through us to purify the water within.

When the waters of our Human emotions are stilled within, may we see the reflection on the Water. May we see the Truth within. Both sides are Sacred to the One Above, and it takes 2 to Manifest every creation. We don’t carry the weight alone. May our Heart share the Song of the Truth meant To Be.

in lak’ech, I am another you

I’m grateful for the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit that upholds the Truth of Love.

SPIRITUAL TOOL: From Updates to the Daykeeper Resources page.

Numbers are universal symbols that convey meaning within our unconscious thoughts. We conceive the meaning of symbols, comparing one to another. If you want to see the meaning of the glyphs, apply what you know on one glyph whenever you see it someplace else.

Number are fun for so many opportunities to see them in the dates, time, incidents. In synchronicity, I noticed that on the date this was posted, I suggested that something could actualize from that date, if we counted 33 days into the future. That’s TODAY. 1 Road/EB is Human’s Road to Destiny, a Day we moved on our own Reason to Be. I wonder what we might see to claim as Divine Truth we didn’t know before, like we always knew. Flint/ETZNAB delivers the Truth like a flash.

  • Counts of Days and Time
    Time is fun to play with. Master Number 11 is the Light of Consciousness to receive Divine Inspiration. 11 is the Destiny Kin AND Position of the Creator, Monkey/CHUEN. You can use dates to find meaningful numbers and use numbers to find meaningful dates. (Yesterday was 1 Road (05/01/2021). Master Number 33 is a symbol of Actualization. 33 days from 05/01/2021 is Friday, June 4, 2021.

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

Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

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]
