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

4 Deer / MANIK

Synergy: the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Deer/MANIK reflects the Power of Two who are united as One for a Divine Purpose. MANIK (man eek) marks the Destiny of the Mayan priest who carries out a Mission of Love as a dedicated practice on behalf of the whole. Counting the days and performing the rituals and sacred ceremonies as they are ordered by Time, the Mayan priest is united as the One. The Creator promised the sacred exchange of Atonement with every offering. At an altar where the two become one, the Deer grasps the Power of Divine Trinity, a synergy between the Above and the Below.

The glyph illustrates the Hand, another name for MANIK, grasping the thread of Ether, and the Vigilant Eye of the Deer that is opened to See. The Hand reflects Human’s Power in the world. The forefinger is the pointer of direction and the thumb completes Human’s power to grasp our Highest Intentions to be.

Kneeling in humility at an altar our Heart is grasped by the Heart of Sky.  The Deer is a symbol of stability with 4 legs, one to plant in each of the 4 directions. The Two United as One create a sum of the whole beyond 4 to see the Truth Above, Below, and within. MANIK holds Position Number 7. Wherever we kneel we’ll see the Truth as it appears at the top of the pyramid, “all that is” and “all that is not.”

So is Tone 4 the symbol of stability reflected by the cube, the most stable of all platonic forms. From every corner we see the same angle of 90°, the 3 x 3 x 10 x 4 that reflects the 360° of a Divine Circle of Love.

We’re never too far gone…

All we have to do is tell the Highest One were sorry. When we reach that far, the Creator lifts us the rest of the way. There’s a Divine Provision for every human limitation.

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

The Elders say, “It’s NOT whether you can. But, Will you Remember?

10 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Beloved Kin,

A body of knowledge doesn’t mean a thing. Wisdom is a matter of applying the Truth. Deer/MANIK symbolizes the Way to Remember. The glyph illustrates the Hand, another name for Deer. The forefinger and thumb grasp a thread of ether that completes a circuit of Power  Above. The circle symbolizes the Vigilant Eye of the Deer.

Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of the Mayan priest, the one who counts the days and carries out the rituals and sacred ceremonies on behalf of the whole. The Mayan priest is not a preacher, but a demonstration of one who dedicates their life to the Mission for a Divine Meaning and Purpose. To carry out the way, they must walk in the highest integrity. The priest lives in the authenticity of who they are, another Human Being of limitations. They demonstrate that the Only Way to Remember is by dedicating a path to an altar, where they kneel in Humility like all the rest.

The Deer is a symbol of Stability, with one foot to plant in each of the 4 directions. A Deer doesn’t defend the Truth, but stands in silence, remembering the Truth will speak for itself. The Truth always makes Common Sense of everything we’ve seen. If someone hasn’t seen the Truth of Common Sense, they don’t choose to know. We only take away from the Power of Truth when we try to defend it. If we KNOW it’s Common Sense, we are wasting our breath.

The Deer claims its Holy Ground, holding the Peace of Knowing. MANIK holds the Gift of Harmonic Resonance. Others are drawn to follow when they witness the Light of the Way. When the smoke rises from the Sacred Fire Ceremony and the smell of Copal fills the Air, others Know someone is praying on their behalf. When someone prays for us, we are drawn to bow our head and stand in agreement. We know we are in the presence of a Divine Communion. If we don’t believe, we lean to the One who believes for us.

3 Deer / MANIK – An Altar for Prayers

The Center of my Prayers

Greetings Beloved Kin,

I wanted to share the real place at the altar where I go to call upon the Creator and the Army of Angels. Uriel is the leader of the 4 end-time angels who holds the flame of the Word in his right hand, and the Book of Divine Laws to his heart. Archangel Michael is the one that purifies and guards against all evil held under his foot. Raphael, the one set above is the Healer of our Mind, Body and Soul – I call upon his healing power to those who suffer and fear anything. That was set as the candle for Noah and now expanded to the children of the world and ALL God’s children that includes you and me. Gabriel is also there to blow the horn – sharing the wind of a Divine Voice and Communion with our Hearts, to bring down the veil between Heaven and Earth.

I remember you and the whole on every visit I make. I have reasons to pay a visit more than once every day and the altar is lit with candles throughout the day, so that when I turn in that direction I Remember the prayers that God has witnessed from Up Above, to bless us all in the Down Below.

May you be blessed with a peace beyond understanding whenever you think of the place, along with your own places that you go – anywhere is divine – either a material place, or a place you create in Spirit – where you light a candle and offer your prayers on behalf of the Whole.

all my love, in lak’ech – I am another you,
I’m grateful for every way you choose to kneel on behalf of the whole.

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

3 Deer/MANIK (man ‘eek), Destiny Kin 107

3 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Touched by the Hand of God our Hearts were forged through the Word to the Light of the Highest One. Deer/MANIK is a symbol of the shaman and the Mayan priest. Another name for MANIK is Hand. The glyph illustrates the Vigilant Eye of the Deer that is focused on the Truth Above. Between the forefinger and thumb, the Hand grasps a Light of Ether, the plasma that welds us to a circuit of Divine Love on behalf of the whole.

The Mission of the Mayan priest is the Count the Days, and to carry out the rituals and sacred ceremonies as ordered by Time. All eyes are turned to see the Smoke when the smell of copal fills the air. MANIK is dedicated to the purpose to help us Remember. Holding the Gift of Harmonic Resonance, all lower vibrations are drawn into sympathy with the Purest Tone of Unconditional Love. When someone says a prayer on our behalf, we are inclined to bow in agreement with the One who creates the opportunity of Divine Trinity.

The Word of Truth speaks for itself and strikes a Note we can Feel and Hear that’s as clear as a Bell. Like the Sound of the Shofar, the Divine Truth is the Trumpet’s sound that echo’s in our Heart.

The trecena guided by Serpent/CHICCHAN holds the meaning and purpose for us to Know the Truth of our Divine Gifts of Spirit. They are a Divine Offering given to the whole in Harmony and Equity. Through the Vigilant Consciousness of the Deer, we’ll Know the Truth. That’s the purpose of our Mission to be dedicated to a daily practice that leads to an altar. Through our offerings of Atonement, we’ll Feel the Truth and KNOW our own special gifts, given directly from Above.

2 Deer / MANIK – A Transition of Life and Death: Day 2 of 13

The Deer stands on behalf of the whole

2 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Beloved Kin,

There can be no Peace on Earth until we stand on behalf of the whole. There is no family where the whole is not united as one. The Love of One over another divides the whole. Reed/BEN was the Guiding Light to know the Only Way is to share the Truth of Answered Prayers. A dedicated path to the altar is the way shared by Deer/MANIK.

On Tone 2 we are separated from the One to consider who we are and how we can complete the Highest Intention at hand. Hand is another name for MANIK. The glyph illustrates the Human Hand that reaches to grasp a thread of ether. The Truth and the Light Above connects a circuit of Divine Power. Miracles happen when we humble our self to the way, and Ask to Follow the Will of the Creator.

You might find that when there’s something hard to do, if you surrender to Divine Will, you’re turned around. It’s a Miracle when you realize that the Divine Way is exactly what you would really Love to do. It may still look hard to create, though in your Heart you will feel the Truth of Divine Trinity. And, it’s only a matter of Time when our Intentions are aligned with the Highest One. Don’t settle for anything less. What we accept as our Human limitations is an endorsement of less than the Will of a Divine Authority of Creation.

In a Divine Family no one is left behind. It’s all for One, and One for ALL. May we never be reconciled to one without the others. Nothing less will do.

Podcast: I can’t, I can’t, I can’t – well – maybe

Greetings Beloved Kin,

You can’t win or fail unless you DO something. I’m sharing my first podcast of a series about making your dreams come true.

You’ll find it on my Basics of Life Blog. If you haven’t been there before, I hope you’ll give me a hand and like and subscribe. I took the “10 days after the Lion’s Gate” thing to heart, and needed to start something new.

I guess I’ll figure it out as I go!

much love, in lak’ech, Debra

8 Deer / MANIK – Walking and Standing in the Light: Day 8 of 13

ALGIZ – The Sage, the Tree of Life (08/17/2022, Debra Malmos, Acrylic Pen, Watercolor, Digital After-effects)


8 Deer / MANIK

Greetings Beloved Kin,

For every Time there is a season. This round of the Tzolk’in is in sync with Mother Earth’s Time. The Haab count symbolizes a Human experience on a planetary scale. In the order of Divine Timing, the Creator offered the Season of Harvest when all things in the down below are multiplied to abundance. The Truth was magnified by the Lion’s Gate on 08/08, Julian Date 220. (Destiny Kin 220 is 12 Sun/AHAU, Ian Xel Lungold’s Mayan birthday.)

Tone 8 holds the Intention of Justice in  Harmony and Equity for the Whole. Balance for all things is the Highest Order. Universal Laws are balanced in both the physical and spiritual plane of reality. 8 is the symbol of eternal life, infinity, and abundance. The Maya regard it as the symbol of “pure spirit.” Divine Justice is the Creator’s Absolute Intention for all of us. Life would never be fair and balanced if Justice didn’t apply to everyone the same. So it is written, spoken by the prophets as a Divine Order.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, and please the widow’s cause,” (Isaiah 1:17). “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8)

HOLY OBSERVANCE: 8 Deer/MANIK, Kin 47, Honoring the Energy and Way of the Mayan Priest
(10 Days Beyond the Lion’s Gate: August 18, 2022 – 08/18/2022; Julian Date: 232)

This is a Day to Honor the Divine Inheritance of Wisdom that came before… Light to find our way to the Truth of Everything. The Spirit of Mother Earth is Unseen, until we look for it. We find it in the Signs and Symbols woven into the Divine Design. We were given the way to stand in any kind of weather.

One Above is the all-powerful defender. Silence expresses that the Truth speaks for itself. The roots of the Buddhist tradition are aligned with One Golden Rule – “See no evil. Hear no evil. Speak no evil.” All things are transitory in their own process of becoming. The Deer is Vigilant, dedicated to the path of Humility. The Deer’s Mission is an Offering that manifests Atonement with the Creator’s wisdom on the scale of Human experience.

The Mayan priest doesn’t hold Sunday service or lay down any rules. The Mayan priest Counts the Days, and carries out the Sacred Ceremonies on behalf of the whole. The only truth spoken is the Promises of Time that lie in the future, and Divine Guidance, when we CHOOSE to see. We don’t do any good when sharing unsolicited advice. Who knows our whole story, but the details we are willing to share when we REALLY need to know our way. A Divine Creator will always speak on our behalf in the end. We know Our Divine Justice, when the Highest Authority balances the score.

13 Deer / MANIK – Ritual and Ceremony

Algiz – Symbol of the Sage that knows the Highest Meaning and Purpose of our Life – to Save another.

Greetings Beloved Kin,

7 Days and 6 Nights is the sum of the whole 13, the symbol of theurgy – an Offering offered from the Creator, that through our Holy Rituals and Sacred Ceremonies, we prepare our own Heart to Receive, because we Know we Moved for God, we hear our own voice, the Sound of our Feet. Mother Earth feels the Prayers when we’re up at night and when everything comes to live at a new Sunrise.

“According to halakha or custom, the hands are washed on a number of occasions. These include before and after eating a meal with bread; upon awaking in the morning; after using the toilet; before eating karpas in the Passover seder; and before prayer.”

I remember a long night of my own making decades ago. There was no hope, over some parking tickets I couldn’t pay. Evening news announced a plan to boot the wheels on the cars of the worst offenders. That was me, after a cold Kansas Winter, making calls, and sure I could get in/out in time. But, never did. How could I carry on without a way ANYWHERE?

I didn’t feel such a Divine Connection then. I wanted to be heard. I was brought to my knees in the night. I KNEW if I did, God WOULD hear me, and I could KNOW. I imagined placing the tickets on an altar, and before it was over, crawled up there too.

The Answer came overnight. I would just go take my 100+ tickets and stand in line before the judge. It was a rag-tag tribe, and from the outside, I looked more capable than most to take care of myself at 32. When it was my turn, I presented the shoebox full. When asked to explain the reason, I told the judge I was a single parent, and them aside, until it was too much to pay.

He looked for a minute. Asked, “Why now?” I only said, “Fear.”

He ordered that I could pay $20 now, and the clerk could set a schedule. I made a 2nd payment by check, as ordered. The following month, my payment was sent back with a note “no outstanding balance.” I called to ask about my account. They said they couldn’t find any account.

Holy, Holy, Holy, I give thanks that when we reach, you are always there to flood our heart, body, and soul with your Living Water. I’m grateful for all the proven and worthy tools you have give, so we Know you will hear, and then you Answer.

Love, in lak’ech, i am another you

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.

The Cherokee Calendar, Insights by Raven Hail, Cherokee Astrology: Animal Medicine in the Stars

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.
