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.

2 Deer / MANIK – Transition of Light: Day 2 of 13

TRECENA OF TRANSFORMER/CIMI, SIGN OF MAJOR LIFE CHANGE

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality. We began in Unity as One. On Tone 2 we are separated from the Whole, into the realm of our own Human Consciousness. Human conceives the Truth through a binary process. We are inspired by Divine Truth that can establish the Faith to Believe. The Truth becomes our own through the Wisdom of Experience.

We are Beings of Duality, designed in symmetry with 2 Identities, a Human Nature and a Divine Nature. Duality is the way of Human Consciousness that learns by comparing one thing to another. Our Divine Mission is to balance a Life Above and Below.

Through Divine Gifts of Consciousness, when we Know the Truth of one thing, we’ve acquired a Truth to know many things. Our Divine Genius is a Gift of Application to carry Truth to Higher Ground. Knowing One Truth, we can expand our Wisdom. “If this is True, then…” is the “operation of thought” through which to conceive the Higher Consciousness of Truth. When we count our blessings, we realize they never end. In the same way, that one question asked over again WILL lead us to Highest Wisdom Above.

CIMI is guiding us to a Divine Life. The Creation of Divine Consciousness is a never ending search for Truth. We were drawn to a path by the Calling of our Heart to know the Mysteries of Life and our Place in the Universe. Like CIMI, we have the Gift to See the Future. We only need to Look to See it. We know what to expect of Time and the Seasons of Life. The Tzolk’in offers the calendar of our Creation. The Future that lies at the end of this journey is the Highest Truth that will sweep all our worldly illusions of powerlessness away. The future that lies ahead is the Truth that will set us Free to Claim the Life of our Dreams – an experience of Life that unfolds in Beauty as our Heart Desires.

On Tone 2 we consider our own way to carry out a Divine Intention of Love for the Whole. We compare our past to the future and consider what new choices we would make. We consider our Human limitations to carry them out. We might compare our Self to someone else, and how we are “more or less” equipped for the purpose.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, who is dedicated to a path to a Divine Altar on behalf of the Whole. The Mayan priest is not a preacher, but one that follows its own way, lighting the candles, saying the prayers, and observing the Sacred Ceremony that is ordered by the calendar. The Mayan priest serves as a Guiding Light to Remember. MANIK holds the power of Harmonic Resonance. Through the purest Tone of Love, the Deer emanates the Sound of Love that calls lower vibrations into sympathy. When MANIK kneels at an altar in Sacred Ceremony, others See and Remember the Time to turn to their own prayers.

Deer/MANIK is a symbol of Stability. The Deer is said to uphold the Pillars of our Faith with one foot firmly planted in each of the 4 directions. The Deer leads by silently standing on its own Truth without defense. The glyph illustrates the eye of the Deer in the circle to symbolize the Deer’s gift of Vigilant Consciousness. Wherever the Deer stands as been Consciously Chosen as a Place of Higher Ground. Our own Divine Truth is like Common Sense that leaves no questions. The glyph shows the Hand, another name for MANIK, reaching to grasp the thread of Ether that completes a Divine Circuit to the Highest Power Above. The Deer follows the path of Humility. Kneeling to the Highest Light Above, the Deer is Free to Live by its Faith in the Up Above. The Deer seeks to Understand rather than be Understood. We can stand in the Truth of our Light when we are Vigilantly Consciousness of our own Intention to claim the Light of Unconditional Love for the Whole. 2 Deer/MANIK guides us to a Divine Choice to dedicate our Life to the Divine Meaning and Purpose by following a Daily Practice of Faith.

Red Deer, Minisa Crumbo Halsey – Shared on 8 Deer/MANIK, Initiation Day

Greetings Kin,

Minisa shared this beauty this morning. It hangs in her home at Spirit Horse Ranch in Mounds, Oklahoma and brings back many memories.

Minisa shared the traditional path of the Hopi/Tewa, Muskogee/Creek and Potowatomie.  So did every member of the Medicine Circle in Oklahoma share many ways. The circle carry on their prayers for the whole through the drums and song. I give thanks for the harmonic resonance they create to uphold the pillars of faith.

8 Deer / MANIK – A Journey of Illumination: Day 8 of 13

THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU LEADS THE HIGHEST WAY

8 Deer / MANIK

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 holds the Intention of the Justice of Harmony and Equity. Number 8 is a symbol of “pure spirit,” Life and Abundance to infinity. Tone 8 begins the Transformation of Consciousness that holds blessings that reach beyond our Time and Place to the Destiny of the Whole.

On Tone 8 we begin to Conceive a Higher Reason to Believe. The Transformation phase of the trecena is illustrated as the descending stairs of the pyramid. Through a Divine Reflection of Tone 7, at the threshold of Spirit, we saw stairs that continued on into the realm of Spirit. Descending stairs are the illustration of the Human experience. In the Balance, an Unseen Force draws us to Higher, just like the force of gravity that pulls us down.

The Transformation is carried out by a Divine Agency. We pushed and Intention of Creation to the limits of Human Faith. Through the Intention of Divine Justice, a Power Above will carry our Dreams the rest of the way to a New Light of Believing.

HOLY DAY: INITIATION OF THE MAYAN PRIEST
8 Deer/MANIK is the Holy Day of a Divine Initiation. Through the first season of the Tzolk’in, we’ve been raised to a Higher Consciousness of the Divine Human Beings we were designed to be. All things are created for a meaning and purpose. We don’t imagine a Dream unless we have a Reason for the end. We were born as the Scion to reflect the Creator’s Highest Light on Earth. Deer/MANIK guides the Mission of the Mayan priest. Through a dedicated Mission to carry out the prayers, rituals, and sacred ceremonies at an altar, our Light would shine a way for the Whole to find the never-ending Truth of Love and the Provision for a Life defined by a Divine Meaning and Purpose.

13 Deer / MANIK – Ascension: Day 13

THE TRECENA OF EAGLE/MEN

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 marks the Day of Ascension. We rise from the 12 when the 2 below are aligned in a Divine Purpose. When 2 believe as 1, we are offered an exponential Power of Prayer. 13 symbolizes a Truth passed down from the Ascended Masters of Every Spiritual Path… the Power through ritual and ceremony to call upon the Intervention of Divine Agency. Prayer is the fundamental expression of Divine Communion. We were intended to share a Relationship. By a Divine Design, a Supreme Creator inspired a Divine Identity – Higher than our Human Nature.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest that demonstrates a Divine Mission. Deer/MANIK resides in the West, the Direction of the Unknown Journey of Life. Holding the Element of Water, MANIK relates to our Emotions. Water is the substance that holds the Ether of Spirit.

Water is a Gift from Father Sky. ALL Water is Holy and used by the priest for Baptisms, Initiations, Blessings and Purification. On the Holy Day of Ascension, we see how far we’ve come. Now we have perfect hindsight. We want to try again, or try something new. We want to reach for new horizons.

Deer/MANIK is the giver of Spiritual Tools, and said to keep every spiritual tool its ever used. Divine Thoughts shared are the tools through which we can Grasp Divine Truth. The glyph illustrates the Hand, another name for MANIK. The forefinger and thumb are shown grasping a thread of Ether that completes the circuit to a Divine Source of Power. The glyph also includes a circle as the Eye of the Deer. The Deer’s most used tool is the application of Vigilant Consciousness.

In the tradition of the Maya the Mayan priest is not a preacher, but one that is dedicated to its own path. The Mission demands integrity. The priest isn’t the perfect example, but a Human who has chosen a dedicated practice. MANIK serves the whole by helping others remember. The priest keeps Time and carries out the prayers and rituals as they are ordered on the calendar. The Deer holds the power of Harmonic Resonance, Through a pure intention from the heart, others are inclined to follow.

In every herd of Deer, one is assigned to be the Vigilant Witness in all 4 directions. The rest go about their way, keeping an eye on the One. If the One watching moves to another place, it’s wise to follow. The Deer is a symbol of stability with one foot planted in each of the 4 directions.

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.

5 Deer / MANIK – Vision Quest: Day 5 of 13

THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

5 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Kin,

Are you dreaming? Or, are you awake?

Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. We chose a direction of thought The plan was, 13 days to dream the Life our Heart Desires. We were given realm in our imagination to create what we would Love. Along the Road we’ve picked up the Divine Perspectives through which to see the Realities of our Life.

We’re guided by a “Dreaming Monkey/CHUEN.” A nahaul of curiosity is leading us through the Divine realm of our Dreams to see all the beauty we can imagine. The Monkey is a user of tools, curious about their means of adaptation. The Monkey loves its own power of Consciousness and holds the patience and focus of curiosity. CHUEN helps us see our Imagination as a Divine Source of our own Genius, the beauty that lies in the inner-workings of our mind.

Like the Raccoon, the Monkey is a trickster. From their perspective, we’ve been sitting on a treasure. It’s been right in front of our nose. Are you dreaming yet? Or, are you awake? (Look around at everything you see. Look closer. Look again. Can you see your nose?) Everything is upside down and backwards, random and out of order in our dreams. If you can still see your nose, you need to close your eyes and go back to your dream. Follow a Dreamer within that Loves the Unlimited Possibilities we were given the Power to Create in our mind. We DO know that EVERY creation started in our imagination. Right? The tricksters would suggest we try it because they KNOW we’ll like it.  After all, it’s the reason we make choices to to escape the realities of human life.

Deer/MANIK is the nahaul of Spiritual Tools, holding the Destiny of the Mayan priest. MANIK offers a solid foundation in our Dreams with one foot firmly planted in each of the 4 directions. It’s said that MANIK has kept every Spiritual Tool its ever used. It’s most-used tool is Vigilant Consciousness. The Deer’s awareness of the all-around is its means of claiming its own Holy Ground. When we claim our Time and Place as our Sacred Place To Be, our Dream will begin from our Perfect Pace in Time – we’re in the very Right Time and Place for our Dream to come true.

13 Eagle/MEN is guardian of our Ascension to Higher Ground. Our Dream will end with the Vision to See it clearly in our future, lying within our grasp. We’ll believe the Dream because we saw it well enough to Feel how it Feels. We will always have a Light that can shine through the darkness of the Unknown when we see that it was our Love of the Dream that saw it all the way to the Happy Ending. A Divine Intention always carries us to the Higher Ground of Believing in Answered Prayers. It was as clear as a bell at our last Ascension. We’re headed to Higher Ground where Seeing our Dream will be equal to Believing our Dream.
