4 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
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 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 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.
Channel of Love
In Native American tradition, the Reed is hollow tube, through which our Spirits are connected to the divine. The glyph illustrates two Reeds – one channel, for the out-breath of our prayers to the Creator, and another, as in-breath through which we may receive inspiration from Spirit.
On Galactic Tone 4, we are stabilizing our connection to the Divine Spirit. Given the channel through which we may share the light of pure love, we are empowered to bring peace, harmony, and order to all our relations.
My weekend has been spent comforting and consoling my dear Elizabeth – a ragdoll cat that’s been my partner for 17 years, and now struggles in her transition. Love can be painful when we see the pain of those we care about. The energy of Reed is like the love that overflows from Spirit, carrying the deep desire to bring peace and love to all the hurting places.
Beyond the veil is a light more brilliant than the sun. We have a direct connection to Spirit to draw from as our abiding light.
To all my relations, I ask that you stand ready to receive this creature that I love so much. Help her to see the light of love that is waiting to receive her, and shine a light on the way.
In lak’ech, I am another you
