4 Deer / MANIK – The Dream in our Heart: Day 4 of 13

The Master Builder for the Creation of a Divine Life

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Altar of Itzpapaloti

Altar of Itzpapaloti – the Obsidian Butterfly

The Power of Love is always known when we have the courage to reach for our Heart’s Desire in the Honesty and Integrity of Unconditional Love.

When we offer the sacred exchange without wanting something in return, life is beautiful. 2022 reflects the Master Number 22 – symbolizing a power to create ANYTHING for a Divine Cause we Love. That is the One Way to stand on the Truth of Divine Justice. Even if we fail, trying to love is the ultimate sacrifice of the heart – because we can never complete the end that is worthy. Only the Truth can save us, when our failures finally break our heart. Truth allows the Divine Light of Unconditional Love to SHINE FOR US.

We’re reaching the end of the Haab year 10 Wind/IK – the manifestation of a Divine Promise of Truth from the beginning to the end. If we asked to know the Truth at any cost to our heart, we manifested Higher truth – hidden by shadows, but seen in the plain light of Common Sense. By Northern count, the New Year guided by 11 Deer/MANIK begins March 31, 2022. We will be dedicated to the purpose, by the SONG OF LOVE – called by a “pied piper” that plays the melody that makes our heart sing.

With antlers AND the 11 antennae that tunes us to Higher Vibrations – music can ring in our ears.
Give thanks for it. Claim the Truth of it now. ASK because you KNOW the Truth of Answered Prayers.

The Way is Light and the Glints on Roses offered through the Sun to ignite our spirit and draw to Senses of Love. The Power of Love stands at our back.

How we begin is how we carry on.

love, Debra


4 Deer/MANIK: Published, June 24, 2021



4 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 raises the Intention of Stability. To keep a creation of Love on track, we can return Love back as an Offering to the Divine Source of the Blessing. The direction that leads back to the Highest One is our own True North.

The Human Seed has to choose the direction that calls our heart. There is no One Way, but an Only Way that’s ours alone. The Elders say we have to create our own myths, dreams, and visions that will rise from the Mission of Our own Highest Cause.

The sacrifice will be a Truth that no one else can know except the One Divine Consciousness that shared every moment. The Truth of our Divine Justice is written within, the same, but different, the Design for Infinite Possibilities.

MANIK is grounded by grasping power from Above to complete a circuit to a Force of Divine Love. Human’s Hand becomes a Spiritual Tool when  we dedicate our Self to the purpose of Living for the Only One Above.

We can build the Pillars for Love to stand. We were given a Sign for the future. The Deer holds the Inner Strength of Vigilant Consciousness. We are being prepared for something down the road. Through Vigilant Consciousness, we’ll always know in time to leap to Higher Ground.

We Ascended from the Monkey/CHUEN trecena knowing the Dream of our Heart’s Desire is the One that touches a Spark within. There’s a Divine Meaning and Purpose for the experience and a Divine direction for the Sacred Exchange.

The Mayan priest is the “human example” of the Deer’s nahaul. We ARE the shape-shifters that can see through the eyes of the Deer. The Deer stands in silence to manifest its Higher Ground. The Deer’s eyes cover a broader field of vision. Employing peripheral vision it can see all around, but for the One place directly behind. The Deer stands with with the Truth at its back. To see all directions at once, it stands perfectly still in silence until something moves. Others follow the One that knows In Time to jump to our feet.


The Deer’s Vision helps us set our bearings for Love. On the Highest Ground we’ll leave no scent of human’s way out of the woods. Deer/MANIK resides in position 7, the symbol of the peak of Human understanding to see “all that is” and “all that is not.” MANIK is the symbol of Human’s way, through Humility and the Dedication to see the Truth we only know kneeling at an altar within. Jaguar/IX is the Spirit Guide, the Divine version of MANIK. IX holds position 14, crossing the threshold of Human reason to see the Truth reflected in the Above and Below.

At Maturity, the Bambi with the open heart grows into the Stag. By the demonstration of the Highest One, they take on a Mission for a Divine Family.

The Deer within can lead us to Human’s limitation that is the Time and Place of a Miracle. Human can only acknowledge an experience as a Miracle when the end was beyond what we were able to do for our self. The Deer holds One Highest Tool, like a staff. The One Tool is a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. When we claim the Truth to our Heart, every Dream of Love will be imperishable to our Human doubts and fears. The hunter’s myth of the Deer is that there is a hollow place, high in the chest near the heart, and if the Deer exhales when the arrow strikes it can pass right through. Maybe the real Truth is that the Deer didn’t draw the breath of fear, because he saw it coming and knew In Time.

MANIK lies in the West holding the Element of Water. Water is another Spiritual Tool the Deer would use to see Truth in the reflection. The Seed of Corn knows the way to the Light is the opposite direction of the Gravity that holds it down. It’s not always that black or white for the Human Seed that grows in the darkness of the all-around. Truth is the True North that was placed in the Human Seed, each Seed given it’s own Sense to Choose the Direction from the Time and Place where they are. We have to Choose One Point of Love that will always be there in our corner. Through the Love of the One,  we will learn to Love our Self with each step we take.

Water holds the Essence of our Spirit within. All our water is drawn from the veins of Life on Mother Earth. In the end, it all goes back again. In the Divine Realm of our Living Beauty, the Spirit that is eternal still rises with the clouds and falls to run through the rivers and streams, back to the One Place we first belonged in the Mother’s Womb.

To stand on the Truth we can Feel in Silence, the Deer offers 4 legs to stand. We can plant the pillars of Human Will and Intention and the Spirit’s Dream that’s True as our 4 legs. And we can take up the staff, to cover the directions we can’t see. When we carry our Love to an altar, the Divine One that receives the Sacred Offering will never fail.

The way to establish our stability is with a “game plan.” We have to chose a way that will hold up in the tightest corners of Love to REALLY let go and Let it Be what it was Given to Mean to our Heart in the Moment. If we are vigilantly conscious, we can see what it is.

To all my relations, may we stand without defense for Truth and Love. May we allow our self to be a conduit for the Creator’s Love. May Sparks from a Higher Source Consecrate the Divinity of ALL the Love we know, Above and Below. May the human slings and arrows pass through without ever touching the Truth that’s REAL to our Heart. Love that lifts us to higher ground is the Truth and the Way.

in lak’ech, I am another you,

Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN

I’m grateful there’s a Higher Place to carry Love that lasts forever.

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

Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.

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.

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.

Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj Is a 13th Generation Quiche Mayan High Priest. Early in life Don Alejandro was recognized by members of his Mayan people as a messenger to carry the traditions. Since a number of years he is president of the Mayan Council of Elders, a body of 440 male and female elders of wisdom in Guatemala, representing 23 different ethnic groups and has the authority to speak on its behalf. His Mayan name “Wakatel Utiw” means Wandering Wolf. He has traveled the world with his wife, Elizabeth Araujo, sharing ceremonies and Mayan traditions and prophecies. Don Alejandro is also the head of the Indigenous Council of the Americas, which has member tribes from Tierra de Fuego, to Alaska and serves as a gathering point for shamans and elders of many peoples.

Grand Mayan Elder, Don Alejandro, the High Priest of the Maya

May we Honor Don Alejandro, “Wandering Wolf,” the 13th Generation Mayan priest who was destined to share the mysteries of the Mayan calendars in the time of the 13th Baktun. He was chosen to share a Divine Mystery held in secret by the Maya. It was his journey to connect the paths of all the indigenous ways.

May we send him our Love and light a candle to remember all the sacred ceremonies he’s carried out on our behalf.  Tata has been bed-ridden, though recent reports are recovery health.

The Elders taught us that the Ones who have dedicated their Life to the path, know and feel the presence of our thoughts and prayers. Tata knows when someone sends their Light.

The means through which to send a donation, or a message is given on a previous  Update on Tata’s Health.

 How is your Spiritual path today?
