13 Deer / MANIK – Living to Love


Greetings Beloved Kin,

Reaching to be a Personification of the Creator’s Love is the the Highest Meaning and Purpose for ANY life. Life was an Offering for the Potential to create the end by our own Choice.

To Ascend to our Highest Meaning and Purpose, reaching to be a Personification of the Creator. Love turns our heart around from focusing on our self but to look to see the good in another. To carry out the end, Love has to transcend the realm of our thoughts and by Choice, carried out by action. Moving for a Divine Purpose creates the Unseen Force of Momentum that raises our Faith to Believing. Believing makes us look to see. Clearly seeing carries us to the Truth of Knowing that the Creator’s Will for us, shall be.


May we Live by the Intention to Love to manifest the end our Heart Desired from every beginning. It’s a choice that’s easy to make. The only thing that ever stands in our way is the sacrifice of our Ego – the Intention to be “right.” Being “right” doesn’t keep us warm at night. It only focuses on our self, and the Lie spoken by the world that we have to be “better” to win. We win the game when we claim we’re no better or worse, living to make the higher choice that is the Creator’s Light that always reveals the wisest choice between one way or another.

May we claim the end that’s guaranteed. Within the Divine Design, we are attracted to the Light of Love. The Creator’s Love is a Truth that will always be, a promise never broken. May we take the ups and downs of life in stride. If life was always the same, Love would be “everyday” and impossible to see as “just the ways things are” instead of a treasure for us to claim. We were born with the Heart of a Hero that longs to win. In the end, we will always surrender to Love that sees and acknowledges us here and now for who we are reaching to be.

love, in lak’ech,

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

Definition of the Tones and the Day Signs by Ian Xel Lungold

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.

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.
