MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
In nature, the process of crystallization begins as molecules or atoms dispersed in a solution begin to gather into clusters. This creation that emerges from the void is the work of God’s own hand. These clusters must grow to a critical size to stabilize into form. Only through an effort of resistance can we alter the course of God’s Divine Plan.
Tone 3 brings the first day of movement to the trecena of Monkey/CHUEN. We support the life of our dream through a surrender to the work of God. God’s plan for us is more beautiful than our understanding. With our lowly dreams, our highest manifestation can only be accomplished by standing out of our own way.
Reed/BEN represents the hollow tube that offers a communion with Divine Spirit. As we share our dreams, we are asked to anchor our faith in the Grace of God’s plan.
THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
3 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.
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.
Crystallization of Spirit Day 3
3 Reed/BEN asks us to begin our crystallization with a conversation with God. We are given an audience in the place of the Most High to share all our thoughts and feelings. The power of Reed/BEN is a two-way communication where God is able to share the vision of the Divine Plan.
Reed asks us to break the ties of resistance that binds us to the old stories of who we thought ourselves to be, as God speaks to us of the true Divine Intention of our Being.
Just as there are 13 days in each trecena, there are also 13 uinals (columns) of 20-days that carry an over-riding effect to trecena energies. During the first 6 days of every trecena we are in a process of growth. At Tone 7 we have reached the balancing point for a transformation that takes place through Tones 8 through 13. The core days are a balancing point as the 7th uinal of the Tzolk’in.
We are approaching the last balancing point of the core days on 7 Earth/CABAN. May we approach these next 4 days as the work of Sacred Ceremony.
To all my relations, may we experience our own movement as a sacred expression of God’s Creation and express our faith in God’s Grace through a Holy Communion in the sanctuary of our altar within.
