9 Deer / MANIK – Revival of Spirit: Day 9 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 completes a new Transformation. Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the bigger picture. Tone 9 comes with a warning that there could be suffering to bear if we fail to look deeper into the Truth we Know. Tone 9 is all about completion.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest who brings the Gift of Spiritual Tools. MANIK is a symbol of stability with 4 legs to uphold the pillars of the Spiritual realm – one planted in each of the 4 directions. MANIK maintains the stability by carrying out the prayers, rituals and ceremonies on behalf of the Whole.

The Tzolk’in is the priest’s Spiritual Tool to maintain the stability of Time and Place. Living in synchronicity with Human’s schedule of transformation, every moment will hold an opportunity for our Happiness.

9 Deer/MANIK completes the Transformation for a Major Life Change by marking the Time and Place for Humans to be Happy is always Now. The Creator intended that there would always be a Divine way.  The Creator knew that Human would carry the burden of material limitations. MANIK holds the Faith to Stand on the Provision of Love, and a Truth that for every Human limitation, we would receive the Spiritual Tool we need to overcome it. Today we can see the future that we can create when we hold fast to our Faith and carry on, following the Human path we were given.

2 Deer / MANIK – Birth of a Savior: Day 2 of 13

TRECENA OF TRANSFORMER/CIMI – HAAB: The Wayeb

2 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

The Reed/BEN trecena offered us a Dream of what Family was meant to be. We saw how all the links, when connected together would be a circle of Equality. The Creator shared a dream of Light in our sleep. CIMI woke us up in the middle of Labor. In the Unknown passage of the darkness in the daylight, we face the reality and walk the walk.

Tone 2 represents Duality. We were 1 with the Creator, and now we are 2. It’s like seeing the difference of Night and Day. What was seen in Unity was perfect. Now Human is separated into its own realm to see the differences in a family below, between the One that was family Above. Tone 2 presents us with a Choice of the Dream to reconcile the 2 back into 1.

Deer/MANIK guides the Choice. Deer/MANIK was the Intention for planetary change that would establish the Momentum to bring a family together. We were shown how important the role is of the Mayan priest. Like Don Alejandro, there is always a Peace in Knowing there’s an Elder in charge… someone who knows all the prayers that are needed, someone we can count on to know a Wise Direction, and someone who tells us that we are a family, as close as fingers on One Hand.

THE WAYEB: Day 1
Sometimes Human doesn’t know what it has til its gone. For the next 5 days our Guiding Year Bearers are away from Home, as one has fulfilled it’s Mission, and the next moves into position. We’re in charge of the family. We have to learn to be the Elders. It will be our Mission to Carry on in a Good and Worthy and WISE direction, as the Honored Elders have taught us to do. This Tzolk’in round, the Wayeb falls during our “walk-the-walk” of Family and Home. Deer/MANIK was the one that taught us what to do. We’ll be making a climb of Spiritual Growth through the Wayeb. The destination is 7 Road/EB, the Balancing Time and Place. Drawing a family together is within our grasp at the top, through a New Leap of Faith. The Wayeb is also the time to turn thoughts to Home and to offer Provision for each other.

8 Deer / MANIK – A Revelation of Light: Day 8 of 13

THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU

8 Deer / MANIK

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 begins the Transformation phase of the trecena. Our Growth phase was compared to a climb, and Transformation compared to a descent. We powered the way up. An Unseen Power will draw us forward the rest of the way. Tone 8 holds the Intention of Divine Justice. Our “descent” illustrates the Unseen Power of Divine Intervention.

When we move into Tone 8 we’re engaged into higher gear. The Human effort of Will receives its Sacred Exchange. The steps we take will carry us farther through the collaboration of a Divine Agency. (The Peak Tones of every trecena are the Times we are operating at Peak Performance. Mayan teachers leaned toward Tones 8 and 9 for scheduling events. The Peak Tones 6, 7, 8, and 9 are days human can seize for important actions and communications.)

Each of the Tones reflect hours of Sunlight from 5am to 5pm. Human was born to Create in the Light. Through the human circadian cycle, our bodies are designed to perform in synchronicity with the Light. The hours of Light from Sunrise to Sunset reflect 12 hours, 12 Tones, Vibrations of Creation. The 13th Tone of Ascension represents the completion of 7 days and 6 nights. On the 13th Tone of Ascension, “the 7th day” we are connected to see what we’ve created together. The 7th day we rest and celebrate, “This is good.”

Every Ascension is built on the Higher Ground of the last trecena. Deer/MANIK was the Day Sign that guided our last journey. MANIK returns on Tone 8 to complete its Meaning and Purpose. We’re reminded on the Holy Day that the Truth we see will never be Unseen. We never lose the Higher Ground we’ve reached by Intention. We will never go back to seeing things as they were before, once we are Conscious of the Truth. Each new Truth is a permanent Light to our path.

The Maya see Tone 7 of Reflection as the threshold of Spirit, their closest place to the sky. Though the energy is one of a descent, the Maya reflect on a mirror image of the stairs that continue upward into the realm of Spirit.  Tone 8’s “gravity” of an Unseen Divine Power is actually drawing us to a Higher Place.

HOLY DAY OF THE TZOLK’IN
Most of the Mayan celebrations, ceremonies and festivals are carried out on Tone 8. On Tone 8 the Intentions Above and Below are in Balance with each other. The zenith hour is the zero point between darkness and light. Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, given the Mission to serve as the Hand of God on Mother Earth. MANIK reflects the Meaning and Purpose given to Human. Deer’s Mission is our Reason to Be. The Maya observe 8 Deer/MANIK as a Day to Honor the Meaning and Purpose of our Divine Destiny. Today is the Initiation Day for those who have dedicated themselves into service. 8 Deer/MANIK carries out the Initiation of the Mayan priest.

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.
