MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 7 we are offered a place of Balance that offers a 360 view for a Higher Perspective on our Spiritual Growth. Each step offered its own experience for understanding. As we see them all together we discern a Higher Purpose. CIMI helped to release us from our past and go with the flow of change.
We can change our mind. We don’t have to carry the burden of choices we made in the past. What matters is who we are now, and who we are becoming. We are the only one holding us back.
The glyph illustrates the Hand, another name for MANIK. The forefinger and thumb are grasping a Spark that completes a circuit to Divine Consciousness. Tone 7 offers a gift of Reflection to see our experience and Deer/MANIK helps us make a Divine Discernment.
Deer/MANIK is said to be the Spirit that upholds the pillars of the 4 directions. Deer is the Day Sign of Mayan Priest and the shaman. As the Hand of God, Deer encourages us to stand in the Integrity of Who We Are.
Deer/MANIK is the Day Sign of Spiritual Tools. Spiritual Tools are the Truths we can turn to for Divine Discernment. Deer is said to have kept every Spiritual Tool it has ever used. As a Blue Day Sign of the West, Deer/MANIK supports our Daily Walk and our Emotional Responses to our experience of the unknown. Deer encourages us to seek out our feelings of limitation. Deer can present the Spiritual Tool that will restore our Harmony and Balance.
Deer’s most-used Spiritual Tool is Vigilance. It’s primary means of self-preservation is standing still, observing the landscape in every direction. Deer doesn’t move at the first sign of danger, but first discerns the right direction. We can regain our Balance by reflecting on where we are. We completed a Spiritual effort, and tomorrow our New Transformation will begin through a Blessing of Divine Justice.
7 Deer/MANIK illustrates the Master Number 77 (Tone 7, Position 7). “Number 7 relates to inner-wisdom and intuition, contemplation and discernment, understanding of others, inner-strength and tenacity. Number 77 acknowledges an accomplishment in our empathetic and psychic abilities, and our determination for Spiritual Enlightenment and the Awakening to our True Life Purpose.” [Sacred Scribes]
MANIK is capable to push away bad influences and negative energies so we may rise above our Human limitations. Deer is a Day Sign who defends the people and makes sacrifices for others. Our Spiritual Senses are ignited as we adopt this Higher Purpose.
Deer also holds the Power of Harmonic Resonance. Through a vibration of Unconditional Love, lower vibrations are drawn into sympathy. With the help of MANIK, our Reflection can elevate our Consciousness to a Higher Vibration within our Self.
To all my relations, to Deer, Silence is a Spiritual Experience in itself. May we Reflect in Vigilant Silence for the Voice of Divine Discernment. May we free ourselves of negative influences by standing in the Integrity of Who We have Chosen to be. May we be the Hand that reaches out to someone else. Deer/MANIK is an Extension of the Creator who sacrifices itself for others. May we be the Creator’s Hand that reaches out to others with Unconditional Love.
in lak’ech, i am another you

7 Deer/MANIK (Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
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.
