13 Reed / BEN – Ascension: Day 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

13 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 13 we Awaken to a Higher Consciousness of our Self and our Connection to the Divine Creator. Reed/BEN is a Day Sign that illustrates the portal through which we are able to communicate and draw the Light of Divine Discernment. Today we are awakened to Spiritual Gifts that amplify the “realness” of this connection.

The Reed/BEN glyph illustrates a Sacred Altar. Above, the Presence of a Holy Spirit is illustrated as descending channels of Light. Below are the prayer mats where Human would kneel in Humility. Through an act of our Free Will, we enter into a Communion with the Divine as we reach for the Light. It’s said the channels of light don’t reach all the way down, illustrating that Human has yet to see the Full Light of the Creator.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign that calls our Hearts toward Home and Family. 13 is the number of theurgy, Human’s ability to draw Divine Intervention to Earthly affairs through the practice of Ritual and Sacred Ceremony. Our Consciousness is raised to see ourselves as One in a Divine Family that is always offered a channel for Divine Communion with the Creator. A Source of Divine Power is always within reach.

6 Reed / BEN – Fledgling Flight of Ascension: Day 6 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

6 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

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.

12 Reed / BEN – Living as a Creator: Day 12

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

12 Reed/BEN

Greetings Kin,

A New Truth comes together on Tone 12 of Understanding. Tone 12’s Gift of Retrospection is magnified as the final Tone 12, in the 12th Uinal – holding a Higher Intention of Understanding. Today we can be drawn to an awareness that would help us to discern a Higher Truth of Divine Understanding.

Reed/BEN draws us to the Altar where we find a Communion of Spirit for a Higher Level of Consciousness. This is the day when a New Truth sinks in, like the last scene of a movie that brings the story to a resolution.

We are about to learn the Truth the Wind/IK trecena has been guiding us to see. Today our understanding is resolved through the power of retrospection.

Wind/IK is the trecena of Creation. Tone 12 presents the “final scene” of this trecena. We’ve learned that every Creation is first conceived by Spirit. Our Greatest Truth is that we Create a Living Thing. Our Creation can influence its own perfect place and perfect time.

Our Creation must go through its own stages of development. We can become discouraged when we don’t see the results we expected. We all have dreams that were never realized because we were attached to when, where, and how it should all come together. As Co-Creators in partnership with our Creation, we can surrender our Lower Self to a Divine Way of Communication.

The Reed/BEN glyph symbolizes an altar as the Place for our Communion with Spirit. The vertical lines below are the prayer rugs where we kneel before the horizontal line of the altar. Above, the vertical shafts represent the channel through which we are in Communion with Holy Spirit. The lines don’t reach all the way down to the altar. As Humans, we have yet to experience the Fullness of a Holy Communion. By restoring the Balance of our Lower and Higher Self, we can share our Love in the Purity of it’s Light when we present ourselves in a position of Humility.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign that turns our Hearts toward Home. BEN is the Day Sign of Family. We are capable through retrospection to see our Place as the Children of God. Just as we pass on the Seed of who we are to a new generation, so did the Creator create us from a Seed of Itself. We were created as Heirs with the Power to be Creators.

Family is the place where we are called to demonstrate our Highest Choice to be One with the Creator. Our family represents the place where we can either do the greatest good, or the greatest harm. The Faith and Hope we share within the family becomes the Seed of Faith for the next generation. The Love that is Shared in our closest sphere of influence, offers the greatest Hope for Humanity.

Today we are being made a channel through which a Communion with Divine Spirit may flow. The Wind/IK trecena has amplified the Breath of Spirit and the Breath of Life. We can see how our ability to Hear the Voice of our Divine Agency, provides the Way to Discern our Divine Transformation, by being that Light in the Darkness that will always show the Way.

To all my relations, may we look back to our own Experience and the Process of our Spiritual Growth. May we recognize that the Creator is an Ever-Present Channel through which will always lead us in a direction of Love. This is said to be a day to “repair our home.” May this be a day that we share our authenticity with those we Love, setting things right wherever there is a misunderstanding of our Love. May we remember to share our Love from the perspective our our Higher Self. When a Mother yells for the children to get out of the street, she is saying, “I Love you, and I don’t want anything to happen to you.” May we learn how to speak our Love in the Highest Way. May we elevate the ways we say our “I Love You’s” and seek to resolve the “misunderstandings” of our Lower Expressions of Love. May we reflect on the Channel of Love that we are, so that our Love is seen in its Purest Form of Light. May we see that the open and clear declaration of our Love is always a Voice of Love that will be heard and understood as a source of guidance, more clearly than any warning bell of “right” or “wrong.” Through a channel to the Voice of the Creator, may we Understand the lasting Power of a Direct Declaration of our Love. May we say the words that need to be said, to dispel any misunderstanding of our Unconditional Love.

in lak’ech, i am another you

12 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/ I’HYA)

Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

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 endeavor to bring peace, harmony and order to all o 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, may have marriage or business problems because of inflexible vies and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson for Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe. Bless or repair your house.

Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA: REED- 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.

5 Reed / BEN – A Journey as One: Day 5

THE TRECENA OF OFFERING/MULUC

5 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Yesterday, 4 Road/EB showed us our way of stability is to just keep moving. On a path that’s Divinely Guided, we will always know one more step we can take. We will conquer our unknown with each next Leap of Faith.

Some steps are harder than others. They might feel harder now in this trecena’s phase of Spiritual Growth (the first 6 Tones). Even knowing what to do and how to do it, there could be trepidation in the unknown challenges our next step might bring.

Tone 5 offers the “Light” of an Empowerment. Red Day Signs represent the “energy of an initiation.” The “lights are turned on” for us to See the Light that would move us beyond our hesitation.

Reed/BEN demonstrates an aspect of the Creator that is the Guiding Light for family and home. Reed is the Protector who’s willing to take up a cause to help another. Reed helps us to understand that the Creator sees us as family. Reed upholds the Divine Justice of an equal opportunity for Harmony and Order among all their relations. Reed offers the Promise that no matter what direction we take together, we will always end up in the Light.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 represents the Intention of Resolution that “assists every new thing to find its place.” 11 offers a Higher Vision of how our new understanding would actually fit into our lives. Tone 11 leads us to adjustments and simplicity.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign of the Altar where we Humble ourselves in Communion with the Creator. Reed is also the “guiding light for family and home.”

When we spend time in Spirit, we can get “lost in the ether” in the Lofty Dreams of changing the World. When we return to the Monday of our day-to-day reality, we wonder how the two will fit together. 11 Reed/BEN guides us to find our Sanctuary in home and family, and new Wisdom in our everyday lives.

4 Reed / BEN – Quest of Love: Day 4

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 presents our stabilizing force for the trecena. As the cube presents us with 4 dimension of height, length, depth, and breadth and Mother Earth offers the 4 directions, Tone 4 establishes the form, parameters, and orientation that will support our new Intention. Tone 3 initiated movement, and now Tone 4 gives us a sense of direction.

The Reed is the hollow tube through which our Spirits are connected to the Divine. The glyph’s horizontal line illustrates an altar. Below are the prayer rugs where we kneel in the presence of God, and above are the open channels of Spirit.

Those born as Reed/BEN are said to be the defenders of family and home. They hold the Higher Intention of bringing order, peace, and harmony to all their relations. Reed/BEN is a Day Sign of High Expectations that encourages us to live in the Integrity of our Divine Intentions. Reed shows us a way of living that will help us manifest an Intention of Love.

PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether – Portal Days present a thinning of the veil to other dimensions. These are days when we are capable to Experience our Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Knowing. Reed/BEN is the Day Sign of spiritual masters and clairvoyants. A portal magnifies a connection to the Creator that is offered through family and home. A portal will stabilize our closest Experience of Love.

10 Reed / BEN – Engaging our Dynamic Potential: Day 10

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

10 Reed/BEN

10 Reed/BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 brings the Intention of Manifestation. We’re made capable to see and claim an accomplishment. We are guided to see how our goals and intentions have taken form. Tone 10 offers both power and responsibility. The Truth we are capable to claim is not our own until it’s taken to our Heart.

The trecena of Seed/KAN reflects the Creator’s Intention that we would fully know our Self and the Truth of the Dynamic Gifts we were given. Reed/BEN represents the channel that connects us to the Divine. Seed/KAN brings Reed’s Gift of Divine Communion to help us Manifest a Gift in our Heart.

PORTAL DAY: This is day 8 of our 10-day journey through a Spiritual Portal that thins the veil to other dimensions. The Portal magnifies our Senses to our own Dynamic Nature. Portals are said to be times when our Senses are heightened to Spiritual Experience. A Portal magnifies the Truth of our ever-present connection to the Creator.
