MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 6 we begin to take on our own Power and Light. We enter into a Rhythm and Flow of the Creation of Love. We gained the Stability and Power to navigate toward the direction of our Dream and are positioned for greater progress.
Reed/BEN turns our Hearts toward Home as the place where our Power of Love will have the most influence. Here our Love for the Whole will have the greatest opportunity to be Multiplied to Abundance.
6 Reed/BEN helps us to engage all our Power for its Peak Performance in an effort of Spiritual Growth. The glyph illustrates an altar as its horizontal line. Below are the prayer mats where we would kneel in humility to gather the Light of the Creator, shown as the channels of Light above. Reed is the hollow tube through which Spirit Flows between Human and the Creator.
The channels don’t reach down all the way, illustrating that we have yet to experience the fullness of the Creator’s Light and Love. The accomplishment of our Highest Performance is to draw down this Light.
This Star/LAMAT trecena HAS felt like learning to walk on roller skates. I thought about posting a personal disclaimer before it started. I remember the last round, and the one before, the sense of it being a little out of control. This time around it has felt more like being given a big push onto a frozen surface, grasping for Truth that would restore a sense of balance. The best solution, like a car on ice, is to let go of the wheel.
For the past couple of days, the journal was written and ready to publish in the morning. Though when I review again in the evening, they’ve felt void of inspiration for myself. The Intention of my Journal is to discover at least One Thread of New Inspiration I can draw to myself. Maybe that’s why I re-membered the wisdom of my 8th grade teacher, who was basically saying, “Everything is going to be Okay.”
Everything IS going to be Okay. We are experiencing our First Flight. I also remember from the lasts two rounds that in spite of beginning with a Sense of Free-floating Confusion, the Star/LAMAT trecena Ascends in a new and Higher Revelation of Light.
This is my encouragement to you, in case I’m not the only one who’s been feeling a lack of control or direction. This phase of Spiritual Growth is raising us to a Higher Frequency and Vibration of Love. Our body and spirit operate from different sources of power. It can take some time for the body to re-establish its equilibrium when we undergo a shift in our Spiritual Frequency. This is an important time to Care for our body, and Love our Self just as we are.
My slippery slope has challenged me with thoughts of all my shortcomings… not exactly what one wants to focus on in a trecena that multiplies to abundance. LAMAT has done that before… those experiences have generated my trepidation. Though, I am starting to see a Higher Purpose, as the reflection of the Degree of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. Through our weakness, we Know the Strength of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. I believe in a Creator who Forgives without ever seeing Fault. “Sin” is a discernment we make for our Self. Seeing our “sin” is a Glimmer of new Light, a new Sprout of Love seeking its way to the Light. We are elevated by a discernment between darkness and light. Maybe, the next time around I’ll remember to not be afraid of my own Shadow in a trecena that completes an Ascension of Light.
Tone 6 engages our full control for Peak Performance. Through the Divine Power of Humility, we become willing to “let go” in a Divine Leap of Faith. We Will Manifest the Creation of Harmony and Equity by Believing the Creator gathers to us whatever is needed for the Seed of our Spirit to grow.
Reed/BEN is defined as the day to “Bless or repair your home.” Reed reflects the Role of Authority in the family, and the Staff of Life that upholds the foundation of our Values and Character. Reed encourages us to be the leader of family and home, instilling the values of Harmony and Equity. It comes with the caution to bend like a rubber hose, rather than rule with a steel pipe. As we grow to live in the integrity of our own values, we will emanate our own Light. Humans are drawn toward the Light.
I was raised with a steel pipe. Though I respect the character, values, and responsibility of my parents, virtue was enforced rather than encouraged. I experienced it as Conditional Love. Every experience offers the potential for transformation. Even this was a gift in leading me to “Seek the Light.”
Though, when we consider the experience of growing up, we could remember the Sense of our Parent’s Authority. In our earliest years, they seemed more like all-knowing gods. One of my favorite memories of my son’s childhood happened when he was around 7 years old. He was the one constantly asking questions. One night he asked me about the light of the Full Moon. I explained how its light was a reflection of the light of the Sun. He sat in thought for a moment after I answered his question, then he asked me, “Mom, how do you KNOW all this stuff?” 🙂 I explained it is was a matter of learning small things over time, like this was now a question he could answer too.
We can forget the power we hold over others when we are in a position of authority. Others are likely to believe everything we tell them. Reed encourages us to Rule with Love, to guide others gently through a demonstration of our own Character. Our guidance would operate at Peak Performance, sharing ways to Create Happiness. Creation is a positive intention to Create Life, not to Cease the Life of any thing.
In our role as Parents, we serve as the First Light of the Creator’s Love. Like a Star, we would emanate a Light for navigation. Reed/BEN resides in the direction of the East. When we travel to the East, we will always end up in the Light.
As a day to “Bless or repair our house,” Reed guides us to consider where we may be harsh in the administration of our authority. Reed/BEN brings us to our knees in humility and inspires the Right Actions and Words to restore Right Relationship where we hold the Influence of Authority.
The chaos of the world reflects a major change within and without. Our Power to Change isn’t held in our “rightness” but in our Love in the presence of darkness. The whole world needs a Shining Light. The Star/LAMAT trecena presents the time and place for our gathering of Light to be Multiplied to Abundance.
To all my relations, as we Kneel at the Altar before the Supreme Lord of Creation, may we pray for an in-pouring of Light. May we move into the Flow of Love, climbing toward the Harmony we would hope to create, instead of fighting against what we see as wrong. May we stand in agreement together for the greatest good of ALL to be Lifted by an Experience of Love, and the Happiness of Harmony and Equity. May we break through the illusion that Darkness is the enemy of Light. May we have Faith that our discernment of the outer world is temporarily distorted, like a reflection on water that’s been stirred up. The True Image reappear through a discernment by our Divine Nature. May we look up to remember we are only one step away from the top of the pyramid, the place where we are balanced again in Unity with the Creator.
in lak’ech, i am another you

6 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
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.
