THE TRECENA OF OFFERING/MULUC
5 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’hya)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
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 log of appreciation, many have a 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.

Meeting our Needs
The Tzolk’in is the sacred calendar of creation. The 13 Galactic Tones guide us through a process. At step 1 we are guided by inspiration from Spirit to choose an idea or intention that we would desire to bring to life. The following Tones illustrate a sequence of steps for our accomplishment. The Day Sign provides us with a role model – an example of a perspective or an approach that we can follow.
At 5 Reed/BEN, Tone 5 presents the time for our empowerment. Empowerment is defined as an accomplished state of self-responsibility and self-determination. Reed/BEN shows us that the way to be empowered is by seeking our connection to Spirit. All our needs are satisfied as we present them to the Creator through our prayers and offerings. When we know the Truth that Spirit may provide our every need, we will gain a new confidence. We must learn by doing. It is our own responsibility to seek the power of Spirit.
To all my relations, may I be grateful that I never have to walk alone, and that a way to be connected to Spirit is always present and available. When I choose to seek that connection and surrender my own will to the Creator, I am empowered by the Truth that I am given everything I need.
In lak’ech, I am another you
