8 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Beloved Kin,

For every Time there is a season. This round of the Tzolk’in is in sync with Mother Earth’s Time. The Haab count symbolizes a Human experience on a planetary scale. In the order of Divine Timing, the Creator offered the Season of Harvest when all things in the down below are multiplied to abundance. The Truth was magnified by the Lion’s Gate on 08/08, Julian Date 220. (Destiny Kin 220 is 12 Sun/AHAU, Ian Xel Lungold’s Mayan birthday.)

Tone 8 holds the Intention of Justice in  Harmony and Equity for the Whole. Balance for all things is the Highest Order. Universal Laws are balanced in both the physical and spiritual plane of reality. 8 is the symbol of eternal life, infinity, and abundance. The Maya regard it as the symbol of “pure spirit.” Divine Justice is the Creator’s Absolute Intention for all of us. Life would never be fair and balanced if Justice didn’t apply to everyone the same. So it is written, spoken by the prophets as a Divine Order.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, and please the widow’s cause,” (Isaiah 1:17). “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8)

HOLY OBSERVANCE: 8 Deer/MANIK, Kin 47, Honoring the Energy and Way of the Mayan Priest
(10 Days Beyond the Lion’s Gate: August 18, 2022 – 08/18/2022; Julian Date: 232)

This is a Day to Honor the Divine Inheritance of Wisdom that came before… Light to find our way to the Truth of Everything. The Spirit of Mother Earth is Unseen, until we look for it. We find it in the Signs and Symbols woven into the Divine Design. We were given the way to stand in any kind of weather.

One Above is the all-powerful defender. Silence expresses that the Truth speaks for itself. The roots of the Buddhist tradition are aligned with One Golden Rule – “See no evil. Hear no evil. Speak no evil.” All things are transitory in their own process of becoming. The Deer is Vigilant, dedicated to the path of Humility. The Deer’s Mission is an Offering that manifests Atonement with the Creator’s wisdom on the scale of Human experience.

The Mayan priest doesn’t hold Sunday service or lay down any rules. The Mayan priest Counts the Days, and carries out the Sacred Ceremonies on behalf of the whole. The only truth spoken is the Promises of Time that lie in the future, and Divine Guidance, when we CHOOSE to see. We don’t do any good when sharing unsolicited advice. Who knows our whole story, but the details we are willing to share when we REALLY need to know our way. A Divine Creator will always speak on our behalf in the end. We know Our Divine Justice, when the Highest Authority balances the score.


When the smell of Copal in the Air the Maya remember the prayer given on behalf of the whole. The Mayan priest carries out an offering for Divine Trinity. We are always inclined to go along, when we Remember the Power of Two who Agree as One. We may not pay much attention to the preacher’s prayers, but when someone says a prayer for us we will bow our head to hear the prayer spoken for our highest good. That’s the unseen power of Harmonic Resonance. The purest vibration is the sound of selfless Love that Sees and Acknowledges the Beauty waiting to be born in the Heart of Another.

Deer/MANIK is also known as Hand. The Mayan priest is a dedicated Hand in Service to the One Above. Don Alejandro, the 13th generation high priest of the Maya – our beloved tata – is the Highest Human Hand, honored by indigenous tribes around the world. The indigenous traditions are divinely preserved Truths and Ways for the whole. He wields the power of Divine Communion. Humans that hold the power to influence thoughts over humanity, sooner or later will corrupt the power absolutely. I was influenced by “Beautiful Painted Arrow” to choose the the Medicine Wheel path when he said, “Don’t try to emulate me. Create your own myths for your own divine way.” And, the Elders said the ways passed down were proven and worthy tools to use until we create our own ways. It FELT like the most Divine Truth I ever heard.  Human was given the Sacred Right to Choose. Sometimes we have to “touch a hot stove” to know exactly what “hot” means. (Or wet paint.) Higher ways stand by the Laws of Cause and Effect. If we didn’t experience one way, we could never invest our whole heart in the other way. We weren’t intended to just follow the orders given by another Human Being. We have our own right of Conscious to Know and Choose Our Highest way. It takes Time to get it right, based on the unlimited number of choices we are free to make.

We are never “who we are today.” Today, we are becoming everything we can be tomorrow – if we choose wisely.

Plowing Snow: View from Above

Who’s to say whether a tree is more beautiful in the Spring or Fall. We LOOK to see its beauty in the Spring. After a long winter, a single bud will do. In the Fall we aren’t looking in the same way for the first leaves to turn into their most vibrant colors. The colors reach out in all their glory to stop us in our tracks. In every season the greatest beauty is seen from a Mind of Divinity that knows the Unseen beauty within.

The Tree of Life supports every Breath offered from the Creator. Beyond the service as a home for the birds, the Tree is the most Common offering used to create Human’s Sanctuary from the storm. Without one tree in my yard, this Summer I remembered the shade it provides from the heat of the day. We have to Look to See the most beautiful offerings in life. Luckily, a Divine Creator of Unconditional Love created ways to capture our attention through Colors and the Times when they appear. When we offer our gratitude for Trees at an altar, we’re likely to remember the rest.

The Elders taught that Mysteries were created to Preserve our Inheritance of Divine Wisdom. The Gift of Consciousness can solve the Mystery all by our self. The mystery is Unseen, until we learn to stand up to the challenge of So Much Power in a Human Hand. Only in the Sacrifice of our Self for another, do we pass the test. That’s when we have the Sense to LEAVE the Magic in the Hand of the Only One who will always use it for a Divine End. Prayers for the highest good of the whole are always in balance.

May we give thanks for those that carried out the Mission Before that left the scent of the trail to Holy Ground. When we follow, the sacred exchange is our own Hallowed Ground where an old life passes away and a new life is born. Divine Mysteries are hidden in plain sight.

Water is the Element that holds our “pure spirit” of Life. Water is used by the Mayan priest for blessing, purification, baptism, and initiation. May we call  upon the Highest One for a Blessing of Living Water. We can carry out the ritual in the our own highest way. There’s a way in Spirit for the ones that can’t get out of bed. When we imagine every step, we create the same experience.

Blue is the Color of the Heart of Sky (and Archangel Michael). West is the Direction of the Unknown Future we CAN know when we are dedicated to the Mission of Love.

with love, in lak’ech, i am another you

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

I’m grateful for a Divine Provision for Life and Every Human limitation.


ONES TO REMEMBER – Cooper Roberts, 8-year old victim, paralyzed and in constant pain from the massacre at the 4th of July parade at Parkland Heights. He is having a hard time as he is beginning to comprehend the harsh realities inflicted on the rest of his life. He is still unable to take more than two bites of his favorite food, and he’s without hope of ever running on the playground again. He is only one of millions of children that suffer from the evil choices that Humans have made for no good reason, except to satisfy an evil intention of the ego to be seen, acknowledged, and inflict pain on others on purpose. Revelations gives the order that we should Love One Another at the end, the same way we loved at the beginning. Though, the Word says that God hates evil. We can hate it too. Human was born “pure of spirit.” We have to love each other and hate the choices that lead to pain and suffering. 

THINK MORE THAN ONCE OR TWICE about the choices you make. Being FREE to choose doesn’t mean we won’t suffer the consequences. Lower choices WILL inflict harm on the children of the future. If we don’t uphold the ways of Love, they will follow in our footsteps. May we worship the highest one with health respect and fear for the end of Divine Justice.

Revelations 2:8-10, The Persecuted Church

8 “And to the angel (aka messenger) of the church in Smyrna write, ‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: 9 “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. (Who is the angel of the church in Smyrna? Many scholars say it was  Polygarp, a faithful one who was persecuted and died a  martyr for refusing to rebuke the Savior (a “second death” for one who was  “born again.”) Source)

I’m thankful for the Spiritual Tools passed down by Humans so long ago. They survived the Tests of Time. Evil ways are burned away by Truth that speaks for itself.

Archangel Chamuel

Archangel Chamuel is the most called upon Archangel for love and relationship harmony. He is also an Angel of Peace and Divine Justice. Guarding the innocent (children) and giving strength to overcome difficult situations. Archangel Chamuel is an Angel of pure love and brings powerful spiritual illumination into your life. When you are feeling anxious, sad, lonely or heartbroken due to circumstance beyond your control, call upon this Archangel to fill your heart with love.

His name means ‘He Who Seeks God’ or ‘One Who Seeks God’. It can also mean ‘He Who Sees God’ as he has omniscient vision to see and know everything between everyone. He is the Angelic Master of the most beautiful, peaceful and loving relationships between people. He helps to resolve conflicts between nations, neighbours, families and couples. He commands a Holy army of Angels to release a wonderful rose fragrance of love from the Angelic rose garden that surrounds the beautiful Temple of the Crystal Pink Flame. Source

Archangel Chamuel Will Help You Manifest Love And Abundance in Your Life ☯174

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

Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.

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.
