1 Deer / MANIK – A Divine Purpose: Day 1 of 13

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK

1 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13-Days…

We begin a new trecena of “Light” that will Inspire a Dream to fulfill our Life’s Mission and Purpose. Deer/MANIK, also known as Hand, is a symbol of Human’s role as the Creator’s Hand in the world.

The MANIK glyph illustrates the hand that grasps the Ether of Spirit between the forefinger and the thumb. The thumb reflects the strength of the Human Will, the digit of our Authority. The forefinger (the pointer) represents a discernment of Direction. The Circle is the “eye of the Deer” that represents the Vigilance of the Deer. By standing in its own Truth Deer/MANIK upholds the pillars in the realm of Spirit.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign that holds every Spiritual Tool. MANIK helps us to see our Human limitations so that a Spiritual Tool is created to meet every need. As a Day Sign of the West, MANIK will call our Consciousness to our Experience of the Unknown. The more we are willing to see our weakness, the more we will be blessed with Spiritual Tools.

Deer/MANIK’s most used tool is Vigilance. Deer stands silently in its own Truth, observing the landscape in all 4 directions. MANIK is said to uphold the Pillars of Consciousness in every direction of our life. Following the path of the Deer, we will learn many ways that we can Stand in our Own Truth, and uphold the Pillars of Divine Consciousness for the Whole.

GLOBAL BURNER DAY: 4 Dog/OC
There are 4 Global Burner Days in the 260-day round of the Tzolk’in, a burner for each of the Seasons. Burner Days represent a release of residual energies… a clearing and purification. The Mayan priest performed the Sacred Fires that would draw the community back together into Right Relationship. On the days leading up to a Burner Day, we can experience the stress of too much energy. 4 Dog/OC holds potential for a release on the Tone 4 of Stability. See the 13-day Trecena Guide for more information.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions and elevate our Awareness to our own Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Knowing. 13 Storm/CAUAC is the one Portal Day in the Deer/MANIK trecena. The Lightning of CAUAC connects Heaven and Earth, Body and Soul. A Portal will magnify a connection to “Lightning Energy” at our Ascension to a Higher Purpose.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Road/EB – momentum for dynamic developments on the Road of our Destiny
  • 7 Reed/BEN – balancing the Light Above and the Light Below
  • 8 Jaguar/IX – a transformation through a new Awakening of our Spiritual Gifts
  • 9 Eagle/MEN – a transformation completed through a Spiritual Gift of Higher Vision

7 Deer / MANIK – Dawn of a New Awakening: Day 7 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

On the Peak Tone 7 we arrive at the top of the pyramid, completing our first climb of Spiritual Growth for the 260-day Tzolk’in round.

In each climb, we’re given the Truth we need to Know, Right Now. Our thoughts are always being prepared for the next Truth we need to Know. Tone 7 is a place of seeing everything that is and everything that is not.

Only an Almighty Creator could make every part of the Creation Beautiful, down to the tiniest details. Yet, every detail would be unique in its own way.

Out of all the snow that falls, no two were created alike. Human’s mind is open to all kinds of beauty, when we reflect on life from a Divine Perspective.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign that holds the Destiny of the Mayan priest. MANIK is also Known as Hand. The glyph illustrates the forefinger and the thumb of a hand grasping a thread of the Ether of Divine Spirit. (The forefinger and thumb symbolize “Direction” (the pointer), and “Will” (under our thumb). By our own Hand we complete a Circuit of Divine Power.

In the Balancing Place of Tone 7, the Dreams from every realm of Being are Balanced in all Others. The Great Law of Creation is the Truth of, “As Above, So Below.” The Creation was designed to maintain it’s own perfect balance. The Dreams intended by our Movement are Offered to the Above. The Creator’s Dreams for us are Balanced in the Below.

13 Deer / MANIK – Ascension: Day 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 is the Day of Ascension. This is a day to Celebrate a new Consciousness of Being. Tone 13 calls for the ceremony of Initiation for our Higher Identity of Spirit to be Seen and Acknowledged.

The Elders say that Everything wants to be Seen and Acknowledged. For all our mistakes and limitations, Human Dreams of being Seen in our Highest Light.

Today we are given this Gift from the Divine Creator. We’re Seen for every personal effort that went into the Transformation of our Self. We were created to Dream of our Highest Hopes, so we could celebrate that everything we were able to give was for the Sake of Love. The limits we reached happened because we are Human, still learning to use our Consciousness. There was no real “failure.” Holding the Intention, we gave everything we were able to give.

13 Deer/MANIK reflects the Meaning and Purpose we were created. We were intended for a Divine Relationship, and to serve as God’s Ears, Eyes, and Hands in the world.

Deer is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, the one that holds all the Spiritual Tools and Believes for the Whole in the Power of Miracles. The glyph illustrates a Hand, another name for MANIK, that grasping a thread of the Plasma of Ether, completes the circuit of a Divine Source of Power. The circle on the Hand represents the Highest Gift used by the Deer, the Vigilance of Consciousness.

7 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 is the Peak Tone of Balance. We complete a new climb of Spiritual Growth. We pushed the limit of Human will and Intention as a Leap of Faith. At the top of the pyramid Earth meets Sky. The reflection of the Above and Below are measured in the balance. What we created Spirit will be Balanced Below. What we created Below will be balanced Above. Tone 7 offers the Vision to See All that Is and All that’s not.

Star/LAMAT is the Day of “Pure Luck.” Whatever we hold in our Consciousness will be Magnified to Abundance. LAMAT is a symbol of Venus the brightest heavenly body that shines its own light, second only to the Sun. Venus’ appearance as the morning and evening star, relate to the 260-day cycle of the Tzolk’in. LAMAT also holds the image of Human Creation, Transforming into a Personification of Light. The glyph includes markers to the 4 directions, remind us that our Light is meant to Shine Equally All Around.

The growth phase of this trecena is completed. Our Intention was to learn by experience (“dark”) how we would carry on as Human in the world, with a Higher Consciousness of our Power of Creation. Our Spirit saw the Perfect Picture. Human experiences the reality of remembering to see it, and how it looked, while navigating the material world.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

The Peak Tone 6 brings us the Momentum of Movement that draws us into the Rhythm and Flow of Divine Spirit. The energy of Tone 6 facilitates dynamic developments.

We’ve invested a Human effort in an Intention of Faith. We can See that by our own Divine Intentions the Creators’ Promise of Intervention is ours to Claim. We’re given the Second Wind of Seeing our own Dreams within our Grasp. With Higher Faith, we can See and Acknowledge the Beauty of our own Dance of Standing Still right where we are in the Truth that the Creator has revealed through our effort of Consciousness.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan Priest, the one who offers all the Spiritual Tools of Consciousness and shows us how to use them through a personal demonstration. It’s the Destiny of Deer/MANIK to built the Sacred Fires, to be Vigilant to Observe the Offerings made at each of the 20 altars that Honor all the Perspectives and Ways of a Divine Creator, the All-In-One Above.

Deer has the power to push negativity away by standing in the Center of the Sacred Circle of the world we are creating, anchoring our Truth, Integrity, Unconditional Love, Forgiveness, Gratitude, and the Wisdom of All our Spiritual Gifts. MANIK stands to uphold the Pillars of the world of Beauty that is held within our Heart and Mind to Create for the purpose of Sharing it with Each Other.

6 Deer/MANIK calls us into the Divine Service we were Created for. Gathering all the Gifts of Spirit that we have been Blessed to Know through our own Experience, we are Given the Vision of a Purpose that transforms the Meaning of our Lives into an Expression of Service to Humanity, Loving the All-in-One Below.

Today the Intention and Way of the Deer, elevated in our Consciousness, is magnified through a Divine Alignment. 6 Deer/MANIK is the Year Bearer for this Haab year, the 365 “vague year” calendar that reflects Planetary Cycles of Evolution and Transformation. 6 Deer/MANIK reflects a Planetary Calling to a Mission of Divine Service. It marks the Divine Intention of the Year for the Whole of Humanity, and the Meaning and Purpose of the Whole of our Inspiration and our own Personal Experiences. The Whole of our experience was leading us to the Intention of this Day, and the way that would be shown to us through the nuhaul of the totem Deer. Today’s Gift of Spirit was given to be Seen and Acknowledged by the All-In-One Below, to make Self-Evident the All-In-One Above.

12 Deer / MANIK – Inheritance of Wisdom: Day 12 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S BLOG

12 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. We were given the Sign of a Major Life Change. The strangeness we feel is the chaos of letting go of ways that were familiar. Though a gift of Higher Discernment, CIMI helped us to see beyond the chaos and Look to our Future.

The Wisdom/CIB trecena intended for us to create our own Wisdom of the Experience of Creation. We were given the Keys to the Kingdom through Higher Consciousness and Forgiveness. We were born to Create a world of Harmony and Equity Below as the Instrument of the Up Above.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan Priest. This is the Meaning and Purpose of our Journey by the Tzolk’in calendar, to be the Hand of God in the world. MANIK is also Known as Hand. The glyph illustrates a hand with forefinger and thumb grasping a thread of Ether that completes a circuit to Divine Power. The circle on the hand represents an eye to remind us that the Deer’s primary means of protection is Vigilant Consciousness and observation in all 4 directions.

Deer/MANIK completes the Experience of Understanding who we were Divinely Created to Be. Living as a Dreamer who believes in the Dream, MANIK helps us comprehend the Power that makes it possible.

5 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 brings the energy of Empowerment to our Intention. 5 represents the Center of the cube, the force within that manages, organizes, and directs the application of our Intention. Dynamic developments become possible with the energy of 5.

Deer/MANIK guides us to find our Power through the application of our Spiritual Tools. The Deer is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest and shaman, said to keep every Spiritual Tool it has ever used. MANIK holds the power to push negative influences away, by holding a tool to overcome every Human limitation.

The glyph illustrates the Hand with forefinger and thumb grasping a thread of Ether, which connects the circuit to a Divine Source of Power. The circle on the hand is depicted as an eye (more obvious than my illustration), which serves as a symbol of Deer’s most used tool of Vigilant Observation.

Like the number 5, Deer knows how to employ its Spiritual Strength and Divine Authority. Deer’s greatest Power lies in Standing Silently in its Truth, due to the Strength of its Integrity. MANIK serves as the Hand of God in the world. Serving as a Divine Agent, MANIK’s Power relies on an application aligned with Divine Intention.
