7 Manik: The Deer & Feeling Supported

September 3, 2019

The Day Lord, Manik is the deer. Notice his four legs, so strong and stable. They represent balance and support. To the Maya, his legs are a picture of the four corners of the earth, the four pillars that help hold up the sky. After the letting go that you went through yesterday, today is about finding your balance again. Kimi, the Lord of Death, took you through an ending and brought a new beginning. Now, in Manik, the deer, you can find the support and balance you need to get on your feet again.

The cardinal direction of Manik is west which brings with it the energy of making adjustments and cooperation. Its four legs working together, supporting the whole, and making fine adjustments to bring about a strong sense of balance.

Today is also a 7, which is a day of reflection. It’s a good day to take some time out to reflect on where you are right now and to allow yourself to feel settled and grounded.

Manik is the Deer and finds the most comfort in nature. So, it would be very beneficial today to spend some time with the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair. To feel the earth beneath your bare feet and to take in the green of the grass and trees and to listen to the birds.

This is a day to embrace grounding.

You have been trough transformation. It is OK to take a break today, reflect on where you are right now, plug into this present moment, and feel stability, balance and support coming to help you.

Your assignment today:

Get out in nature. Take off your shoes and get the souls of your feet connected to the earth.

Here is a little video that will give you some tips about grounding.
