9 Reed/BEN – Spiritual Quickening


9 Reed/BEN

9 Reed/BEN

Greetings Kin,

This is the point in every trecena when we look at a new personal truth and see how it fits into the larger picture. Tone 9 guides us to see the bigger implications of a new Spiritual Consciousness.

The glyph of Reed/BEN illustrates an altar. The columns below represent the prayer rugs where we kneel, the horizontal line is the altar table, and the columns above represent the descending of Spirit. We are guided to serve as the hollow tube for our communion with God.

The intention of Tone 9 is to complete a new understanding. There is still something more for us to know.

We are completing peak energy of this cycle and this is the 8th of 10 Green Kins in progression that opens a portal to Spirit and the potential for a shift in perception.


9 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

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: 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.

Today is Kin 113.
Tzolk’in Chart illustrates Kin 106 thru Kin 115 as “Galactic Activation Portal” days. This energy magnifies what you focus on and opens a channel to Spirit. You may have more intense feelings. You or people around you may exhibit more sensitive behavior. You may experience an intuition or knowing or shift in perception.


Spiritual Quickening: Day 9

Looking back to our first day of movement, we can find the context for our new understanding. The intention that was born into movement (Tone 3 of this trecena) was Guided by Deer/MANIK. Deer is the sign of the Mayan Priest who serves an Agent for God, and is the Day Sign that brings the power of Harmonic Resonance.

The creation we brought into being was more than the in-pouring of Divine Spirit. Our Spiritual Quickening expands the power and reach of our own emanation of Spirit. Through power of harmonic resonance, as we rise to a higher consciousness, we join forces with the One to raise the frequency of Spirit of all. Reed/BEN guides us to serve as a pure channel of God’s love.

To all my relations, may we remember that whenever we learn something new, we are guided to see our purpose for the highest good of all.
