11 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)
Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.
Reed/BEN: Reed persons are the spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. They are competent speakers who will take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, Reeds endeaver to bring peace, harmony, and order to all of their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation, many have marriage or business problems because of inflexible views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.
Cherokee, Reed I’hya: Symbol-Reed is the Earth, reflection of the Star Chaga of Pollux. Reed made up the Magician Twins who led the journey to bring back to life the daughter of the Sun. The Casket is Gemini. Energy for Intellectual minds, creation, re-creation, new directions, breaking the ties that bind. A trailblazer and leader. From the East, direction of success and happiness, no matter what route is taken, always ending up in the Light.
Connection to Spirit
We are making a journey through the 13-day trecena of Night/AKBAL. Each day leads through a passage of darkness and the unknown where all potential lies. Through this cycle we may be opened to the highest source of inspiration and guidance, our connection to Spirit.
Spirit is the still small voice within from which we can draw the Truths that sustain us and show the way. Spirit is the Sacred Fire at the altar within.
From the symbology of the glyph, the vertical lines at the top illustrate the nourishment coming down from the sun. The vertical lines at the bottom represent the reeds or cane plants. In Native American teachings, the reed represents the hollow tube through which Spirit descends to the people. The horizontal line is the altar and the cross woven lines depict the reed mat, used for kneeling in front of the altar.
We make our connection by kneeling at the altar of our own Spirit. Here in the silence we have a direct correspondence with Spirit of the Heavenly realms. When we come forward in humility seeking the highest good of all, we are opened to inspiration beyond the limits of our own dreams.
The Night/Akbal trecena is guiding us to see our unlimited potential. At Tone 11 we are encouraged to seek clarity from what we have experienced, as Reed/BEN opens the channel to Spirit. Through our connection to Spirit we are offered a new understanding of our unlimited potential to prepare us for our next journey.
To all my relations, may we be ever grateful for the freedom to choose our own paths. May I be open to hear the guidance from Spirit that leads me forward to the path of my true life’s purpose.
in lak’ech, i am another you,
Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
P.S. (Personal Synchronicities)
I responded to a delayed Thanksgiving text message on my phone. I received a response back, saying it was Kmart who was in possession of the lost phone. I had no way to reach my friend 2,000 miles away in Tucson. I emailed a mutual friend in Mexico, who knew other mutual friends on facebook. She was able to track down the friend’s sister who called her son who lives nearby. She still doesn’t know it, but a long line of connections are in process of returning her phone from a text that was sent to Washington state.
