13 Deer / MANIK – Ascension: Day 13

THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN: A DREAM WITHIN REACH

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 marks our Ascension to a Higher Consciousness. Ascension carries us beyond the end of our Creation. The Dream of Love becomes the Truth that came before. We hold it now with an Understanding of our own conception. The Seed becomes a Dream for the future. From the past we see new mountains we could climb. Ascension offers the Sense of wanting to try again, or to begin something new. We want to try living again, applying the Truth we didn’t know before.

Eagle/MEN offered a view from a higher perspective to see the Light at the end. We were inspired by the “Light” of a Divine Dream and a Truth of the Unlimited Possibility. The Eagle shared a way of focusing on the prize and never turning away, leaving the Time and the Vision of its Whole Beauty in the Creator’s hands. We learned that Human imagination will never carry us as High as a Divine Creator intended us to Grow.

Deer/MANIK symbolizes our Divine Mission in Life. We learned at the beginning that Our Way to reach our Highest Hopes and our Highest Aspirations is through a dedicated mission of Consciousness. MANIK is also known as the Hand. The glyph illustrates a human hand grasping a thread of ether between the forefinger and thumb to complete a Circuit of Divine Power. Love is the Power to move everything toward the Light of the Universe.

MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, who counts the days and carries out the rituals and ceremonies on behalf of the Whole. MANIK is a symbol of the Highest Integrity. Standing with one foot planted in each of the 4 directions, the DEER holds the Vigilant Consciousness of its own Truth. The Deer never looks away from a path that leads to an altar. The Deer is always looking for the Highest Ground. Where the Deer stands, others will follow. The Deer holds the Power of Harmonic Resonance. Emanating the Light of Faith in Divine Truth, the “vibration of pure love” will always draw lower vibrations into sympathy. Deer/MANIK dedicates itself to holding its own “perfect pitch” of Love. We are drawn one Tone at a Time from the place where we Kneel in Humility to a Higher One.

Deer/MANIK is the Giver of Spiritual Tools. Through Vigilant Consciousness of the Truth we held Faith to Believe, Divine Thoughts will be the Tools for our way. With every doubt and fear, we’ll be prepared to turn back to the Truth and the Time and Place where we found it before. MANIK shares the Vigilant Consciousness to REMEMBER. The Elders say, “It’s not whether you can. But, Will you Remember?” Truth will lead the way. Obstacles will disappear when we Remember the Promise of Answered Prayers.

Number 1313: Tone 13 and uinal 13 represent the Number 1313. Number 1313 doubles and amplifies the Number 13. Number 1 relates to self-leadership and assertiveness, telling us that we create our own experiences with our Intentions, Thoughts, and Beliefs. Number 3 is a sign that we are surrounded by a Divine Agency, helping us focus on the Divine spark within our Self and others. The Ascended Masters are working through our thoughts to enable the highest and wisest choices, and to use our natural interests, talents, and personality to bring joy and uplift others.  1313 resolves to Number 8 (1+3+1+3=8), the Number of “pure spirit” and Abundance.

7 Star / LAMAT – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 7 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

7 Star / LAMAT

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 7 completes a Human climb of Intention. At the top of the pyramid we’re given the view of “all that is” and “all that is not.” What were we looking for? Whatever it is, the Truth will be multiplied to abundance. Tone 7 is a Reflection on the Promise, “As Above, So Below.” We will find whatever we’re looking for, and when we are willing to see the Truth, Truth will hold an Answers a Human Heart needs to know.

“As Above, So Below” is called the “Great Law” of creation. What is created from one realm of consciousness will be balanced in all others. It corresponds with the Universal Laws of Cause and Effect. The Universe is our “field of corn” where a Life is Created.

Whatever we “throw at life” the Universe will bounce back. When we conceive this Divine Truth, we can grasp the Beauty of Life. Throwing all our Love at Life, we can ONLY Know the Sweet Return of Unconditional Love, multiplied to abundance by exponential Forces of the Universe.

To Know the Truth we have to “track the mind.” The Gift of Truth is multiplied to abundance, when we realize we can conceive Wisdom “beyond our own years.” The Truth is we’ve been collecting knowledge, facts, and symbols through every experience of our life. We were given the Gifts to Understand when we added 2+2. We hold the Wisdom of Divine Genius with the Intention to See the “Sum of the Whole” Story.

Star/LAMAT is a symbol of the Scion, created as a Personification of the Creator’s Light to shine equally all around in 4 directions. A Light is created as a Source of Illumination to reveal what’s hidden in the darkness, Unknown. As the first descendant of a Holy Light, we were intended to shine a Light on Love, Unseen. It’s a human sacrifice. We have to look into the darkness where Love has never been seen before to raise the Whole Truth to Light.

We weren’t meant to leave anyone behind. “The Work” isn’t finished until the Whole is found to complete the One.

We have to track our own thoughts to remember what we were climbing for. In the beginning, we imagined Love. We woke with a Dream beyond Human imagination that we could all Love each other in Harmony and Equity. It was the Creator’s Dream and our Intention was the Wisdom of the Human experience of it. If we can face the Truth, Tone 7 will always reveal “all that is not” within our own Power to Love and “all this is” Loved at the Highest Altar.

We arrive at the Highest Altar with a Human Offering to Love what we still can’t Forgive, a sacrifice of the Heart. What we can’t forgive, a Divine Creator can heal, when a Human Being kneels to ask for Love on behalf of the Whole.

6 Deer / MANIK – The Breath of Life and Spirit: Day 6 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK: THE TRUTH OF DIVINE WILL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 hold the Peak Energy of Flow. Tone 6 represents the Momentum created by a rhythm and pattern of movement. Tone 6 offers a force of motivation as we begin to see the Truth of Cause and Effect.

Tone 6 is the Flow of Creation we establish by putting a “system” in place. With a rhythm and pattern we see greater possibilities. When we get into the flow, it becomes a challenge. How far, how fast, how how could I really go?

We have a Divine Reason to ask these questions at this Time and Place. We’re realizing what we could do with a Brand New Life. All the Ah-ha moments of the 12th uinal, is Divine Understanding being drawn together from all the pieces and parts of Our Experience. If we can sacrifice the life that didn’t work for us before, for the Life we were Promised, we could be the Savior to our Self. We are preparing to move into the cycle of Ascension. We’re realing the promise that we CAN start over again. With every new and higher Intention, we are holding our Self accountable to Higher Love. With every journey into the darkness and back around, the Light we Remember is brighter than before.

Tone 6 is the energy of a great athlete that has practiced all the steps. Seeing a Divine End in sight, the race to the end becomes an Expression of the Art. When we let go of what we don’t know as a “nothing matter” and engage everything we DO know, we could REALLY know what we could be.

Deer/MANIK shares a Power to turn away negativity through a Spiritual Gift of Vigilant Consciousness. The Deer is a nahaul of Beauty in Motion. The Deer has the stability to Stand on its own Truth with one foot to plant in each of the 4 directions. Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest who demonstrates the Divine Movement of Faith. Deer/MANIK represents the “Mission of Love,” one who dedicates themselves to follow a path to an altar, to carry out the rituals, prayers, and sacred ceremonies on behalf of the whole. Through the Momentum of its movement, the Deer holds a Power of Harmonic Resonance. The Frequency of Love draws lower Sounds into Harmony.

MANIK guides us to be a living demonstration of our Faith in the Integrity of Truth. Our highest example isn’t perfection, but where we go when we reach our own limitations. We are guided to a Life of Humility, Tolerance, Love, Forgiveness and Understanding… like it’s a Mission. We are changed when we dedicated our self and our time to a Divine Meaning and Purpose. We see a Divine Hand guiding our Life. When we’re dedicated to a path, we’ll REMEMBER all the Power of a Divine Hand Above.

12 Deer / MANIK – A Divine Inheritance: Day 12 of 13

THE TRECENA OF WISDOM/CIB: FOLLOWING THE LIGHT WITHIN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S BLOG

12 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 raises our Consciousness to Understanding. Disassociated pieces and parts of an experience are drawn together into a new meaningful Whole. On Tone 12 Truth is taken to heart to make Sense. 12 is a symbol of Humanity, a Being of Duality in the lower place, side-by-side with the One Above.

Comprehension is a Divine Gift. Our Gifts of Intellect and Imagination are Divine for the Power of Discernment. The 12 holds the Power to Ascend to 13 when  2, our Human Nature and our Divine Nature, are aligned for a Divine Cause. A Dream of Divinity was made possible through the Sacred Right of Choice. Through our Intellect and Imagination, Human was given the Power to Dream, to manifest a Reason Why.

Deer/MANIK is the nahaul of Vigilant Consciousness. MANIK is a symbol of Spiritual Stability, with one foot firmly planted in each of the 4 directions. The Deer is always looking for the Highest Ground. To protect its Time and Place, the Deer stands silently in the Truth.

MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, one who is dedicated to a personal path of Spirit. The Mayan priest silently counts the days and carries out the rituals and ceremonies on behalf of the Whole. MANIK is a symbol of the Highest way of Integrity, to walk the walk. We don’t have to defend who we are and the choices we make when we know we are carrying out a Divine Mission on behalf of the whole. It’s okay if we are misunderstood, and we weren’t intended to prove Our Way. The Deer guides us to claim Our Way.

MANIK symbolizes a Divine Power of Harmonic Resonance. The Vibration of Pure Love draws lower frequencies into sympathy. When we have the Freedom to Choose and we see another one kneeling in the Light of Love, we Remember to turn to our own prayers. MANIK holds Faith for the Whole as its way to Express the Offering of Unconditional Love.

MANIK holds the Element of Water and resides in the West. On days guided by MANIK our heart is turned to the Unknown journey of our Life and the Hopes and Dreams that lie ahead. Through Vigilant Consciousness – to choose the direction of our thoughts, with Time we wear a path from going back and forth. Deer/MANIK guides us to apply the Truth of Cause and Effect to a Divine Mission. When we are lost in the darkness, we will carry on like our Mother. We will know the way to a Divine Future when we create the path to an altar. Water holds the Ether of Spirit used by the Mayan priest for blessings, baptisms, initiations, and purifications.

The Seed of a New Life is consecrated and Blessed. A Higher Understanding of the Meaning and Purpose of a New Life is waiting for us to Understand at an altar.

5 Deer / MANIK – A Dream That’s True: Day 5 of 13

THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL: DREAMS ARE TRUE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Are you dreaming? Or, are you asleep? Wake up and Dream, then go back to sleep.

Tone 5 raises the Intention of Empowerment. Tone 5 represents the center of the cube as a central organizing Force that manages Resources for Application. After surveying the field of our Dreams, our next Common thought is to gather the tools that are needed.

We HAVE built the Pillars of a Dream. We couldn’t gather the tools if we hadn’t already seen the possibility of the end. AKBAL draws back the veil to see the Truth of our Creation. The Perfect end lies somewhere in the back of our mind, a Spark beyond imagination. We wouldn’t gather the tools if we weren’t drawn by the Light of a Possibility, and an End we Love.

On Tone 5 Faith is Raised to Believing by an Intention that will prove we have everything we need. Tone 5 offers the Light of the Means and Ways.

Deer/MANIK is also called Hand, representing Human’s Hand in fulfilling the Creator’s Dream. Our Meaning and Purpose is to Imagine the Beauty that can be created from the things we Love. No one else will see them the same way.

The Deer’s Gift is Vigilant Consciousness. MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest who dedicates itself to a Mission of Love on behalf of the Whole. The glyph illustrates the Human hand that reaches to grasp a thread of Ether that completes a Divine Circuit of Power. The Deer’s Highest Intention is to Reach for the Connection to Love through a Divine Communion.

The Mayan priest fixes its eyes on the Source of Divine Love, kneeling in Humility from the world below. By Virtue of a Divine Meaning and Purpose, the Deer wields the Power of Harmonic Resonance, capable to draw lower vibrations into sympathy with the Pure Vibration of Love. The Deer doesn’t demand that anyone follow, dedicating itself as the One to carry out the rituals and ceremonies on behalf of the whole.

Deer/MANIK demonstrates the Truth of Integrity. The best way to walk the walk is like the Deer, standing silently in the Truth. Others don’t have to defend themselves when they are free to make their own choices. We were each given our own Divine Ways. All we need to see is another Human Being kneeling at an altar to remember to say our own prayers and to Remember We Do Believe in a Power Above.

11 Deer / MANIK – Moved by Divine Trinity: Day 11 of 13

THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN: A MIGRATION OF SPIRIT

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 carries the Intention of Resolution. Like a Divine set of antennae, 11 tunes us in to a Higher Vibration of the Truth. Through a gift of clarity we can see a way to carry on, and a Divine Meaning and Purpose for Our Place in the Universe.

In the end, we are reaching to know that Our Life mattered. In every Human heart lies a Dream that we will be remembered for something greater than all our limitations.

Raised by the Wisdom of a Divine Mother, we learned that everything we want is ours in a Choice to Share the Dream on behalf of the Whole. All we have to do for Life to Matter, is for Life to Matter to us.

Deer/MANIK defines Human’s Mission, to be the Hand of God in the world below. MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, dedicated to make a trip to the altar to carry out the rituals, ceremonies, and prayers on behalf of the Whole. Hand is another name for MANIK. The glyph illustrates the Human hand that reaches to grasp a thread of Light and Hope, the Ether that connects us to a Divine Circuit of Power.

The Deer’s only means of defense lies on its head. With its own set of antennae, the Deer knows its highest application is the Mind in Vigilant Consciousness of its own Time and Place. On Tone 11 the Mayan priest climbs to the Highest altar with an Offering of Atonement. Kneeling in Humility, counting the Blessings of Love, a Supreme Creator shares the Truth of Love all around.

4 Deer / MANIK – The Truth Within: Day 4 of 13

THE TRECENA OF SEED/KAN: A DREAM OF OUR CREATION

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 holds an Intention of Stability. Tone 4 is represented by the cube, the most stable of all forms. The boundaries and parameters define the dimension and area. On Tone 4 we stabilize an Intention by establishing the “rules of the game” and a boundary of thoughts.

The 13 Tones of Creation are Inherent thoughts written within. From the micro to the macro they are the same on every scale and cycle of Time. The Intentions of the Tones are Common thoughts of Creation ordered by the Hours of Light. The Maya count 12 hours of daylight from 5AM to 5PM. The 13th Tone/Hour is the Ascension into our Dreams.

The Elders say that to “know thyself” we have to “track the mind.” That’s the only way to Know our Divine Design as a channel for the Creator’s Unconditional Love. What is Common, shared in Harmony and Equity, reflects an element of our Divine Design.

We wake in Unity on Tone 1 with Divine Inspiration. With every Sunrise we see the possibility to create a new life. In the 2nd Hour, we engage the thoughts of Duality, comparing what we did yesterday to what we might do today. By the 3rd Hour we find a reason and a plan to move.

In the 4th Hour, the Maya surveyed the field of corn to measure a task at hand. On Tone 4 we’re inclined to figure out an approach, the priorities, and the “rules of the game.” For the Creation of Higher Consciousness we define the boundaries and parameters of our thoughts. By setting an Intention we give our mind something to remember.

The Intention of Stability is magnified by the Day Sign Deer/MANIK, the nahaul with 4 legs with 1 foot planted in each of the 4 directions. Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, one that holds the Spiritual Tools and employs them on behalf of the Whole. The Deer’s most-used Spiritual Tool is Vigilant Consciousness. MANIK stands on the Integrity of its own Truth in silence, without demanding agreement. The Deer leads by attraction, holding a Gift of Harmonic Resonance. Connected to the Creator’s Love, others naturally follow. When the Mayan priest carries out the rituals and sacred ceremonies for the community, others see and remember to offer their own prayers.

The glyph illustrates a Hand, another name for MANIK. The forefinger and thumb are shown grasping a thread of ether that completes a circuit of Divine Power Above. Humanity was created to serve as the Hand of God. To grasp the Power Above, the  Deer guides us to a dedicated daily practice, a path of Vigilant Consciousness that leads to an altar.

10 Deer / MANIK – The Light of Truth: Day 10 of 13

THE TRECENA OF FLINT/ETZNAB: LIGHT OF TRUTH

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

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. To change our Life we must claim a new Perspective.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest. The Deer’s way is a path of Vigilant Consciousness. MANIK is a symbol of stability with one foot firmly planted in each of the 4 directions. The glyph illustrates the Hand, another name for MANIK. The forefinger and thumb grasps a thread of Ether, connecting a circuit of Higher Power Above.

Deer/MANIK holds all the Spiritual Tools for the Discernment of Love. To hold Faith where Love is Unseen in the Darkness requires an effort of Vigilant Consciousness. On 10 MANIK we can claim we have all the Spiritual Tools we need for a journey to Higher Ground. When that’s not enough to find our way, MANIK holds the Power to turn away from negativity with One Special Tool – a Power beyond every Human limitation.

In the 7th uinal we see the Truth of Justice and Injustice. We hate to complain when we see the Truth of all our Blessings. Though, seeing the Light and the Dark at the extremes on either scale, it may be harder to see beyond our own Human limits. The only way to hold the Truth of Love is by dedicating our Heart to the Experience a Divine Creator Knows is the Truth.

MANIK resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Future. The Element of Water relates to the Moon and our Emotions. As a living sacrifice we can claim a Divine Meaning for our tears on behalf of the Whole. Water is the Spiritual Tool used by the Mayan priest for Blessings, Baptisms, Initiations, and Purification.

3 Deer / MANIK – A Quickening of Spirit: Day 3 of 13

THE TRECENA OF SERPENT/CHICCHAN: GIFTS OF SPIRIT

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

3 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. The Serpent/CHICCHAN is guiding a new way by our Feelings. We can’t go back. To reach the Miracle, we have to keep moving on. Life begins with Movement. Through the Sound of movement or the spoken words of our Intention we bring a new Vibration to Life. The Tone and Frequency will carry on to the end, established by the Intention in the beginning.

The only way to get from Point A to Point B is to keep moving on. The Key to the Kingdom of a Divine Life depends on a steady course of perpetual movement.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, holding the quality of Stability with one foot firmly planted in each of the 4 directions. We have to keep on Loving to maintain the Harmony of Right Relationship in the South. We have to keep on facing the Unknown Future in the West, standing on the Truth that Love will lead a way. We have to keep on applying our own Common Sense and Wisdom of Experience. The Answer is always right in front of us. The Deer stands in the West, guiding a way to an Altar of Light – facing the Sunrise of each new day.

Deer/MANIK is the giver of Spiritual Tools. MANIK holds the power of Harmonic Resonance. The Mayan priest doesn’t demand a way, but only carries on its own path to an altar. When others see the the priest kneel in humility at an altar, others remember their own way and drawn to follow.

3 Deer / MANIK – Prayers from the Longhouse

Bodewadmin Longhouse Message from Minisa Crumbo Halsey

Good morning … mno waben aanii … good day friends …

I am expanding this mailing in order to initiate important plant talk into our fall and winter gestational honor seasons, whereby we recognize and honor those seeds with which we sat and prayed last winter in the Bodewadmin Longhouse. As with the natural world or a tended, intentional garden, part of the growth can be predicted or shaped and part cannot. At this time we all, here on Turtle Island, find ourselves coming into new awareness and balance with the Great Mystery. The inner and outer landscapes are shifting. This offers so much opportunity for not only sacred choice to the exercised but also a vastly expanded view of Medicine Wheel teachings and disciplines by which to institute these choices … then bringing these ones into the inner longhouse for growth and endurance prayers.

Visit Minisa’s Dawn Woman’s Blog for the rest of Minisa’s message sharing the Gifts of Mother Earth for every Season.

love, in lak’ech, Debra

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

Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.

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.
