MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 10 of manifestation asks us to see the new Truth brought to light. We must remember that our re-creation is a time of Sacred Ceremony. This place of re-creation requires us to apply our highest spiritual intentions. Though I find myself wanting to pray for an easier time, I know my highest intention is to pray for the Spiritual Strength to meet any challenge.
We HAVE been guided to pray for Spiritual Strength, and acquiring any strength always requires an effort. Now is the time to stand in our own power, and we must tend to the needs of both Spirit and Body.
THE TRECENA OF FLINT/ETZNAB
10 Deer/MANIK (Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
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.
Womb of Re-Creation Day 10
Deer/MANIK is the bringer of Spiritual Tools. Deer is capable to stand in its own power through the Spiritual Tool of vigilance. And, silent deer is capable to emanate its highest vibration through the power of harmonic resonance.
Flint/ETZNAB always has the capacity to bring hard truth. This trecena presents us with a time to do our spiritual work. As we are being regenerated through the core days, our hope would be for an abundant new awakening of our Spiritual Power. The more consistently we REMEMBER and APPLY the source of our real power, the more powerful our Spiritual transformation will be.
Our work is an exercise of consciousness. No matter how we may feel challenged by the world, this is NOT the time to linger in the darkness of doubt and fear, but to spring into decisive spiritual action. We are synchronizing a new spiritual guidance system. Our challenges are the signal to call on God. Each test helps us find our bearings and turn our practice into a new pattern of behavior.
Though the task may be hard, the actual “work” is as easy as turning our attention to God. It’s only a matter of remembering to make that choice. This is a time of pulling down old constructs. Like the transformation of a butterfly, we are becoming something different – unrecognizable as what we were before.
To all my relations, may we treat ourselves with the utmost kindness and care. Our physical bodies share the burden of our effort. This is a time to rest when we can and pay attention to our physical needs. Deer is capable to provide a tool for every limitation.
