MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 represents the energy of Duality. In the Unity of Tone 1 we were Inspired with a Dream and on Tone 2, we consider our own way to carry it out. Human’s way of understanding is through comparison. We make choices of dark or light, good or bad, left or right. We are given a choice to move forward toward a new Intention, or to stay where we are.
On Tone 2 we are separated from the Whole as we consider our own Strengths and Weaknesses. As we make a choice for a Dream “to be or not to be,” we may run into the old fears and disappointments that kept us from reaching for this dream before. We can find ourselves wishing we were just as capable as the rest.
Tone 2 is an important day for Divine Discernment. Our Lower Self can present us with the fear of an illusion. Our job is not to react to our fear, but turn to the Creator who holds the Supreme Power of Creation.
Reed/BEN guides us to Kneel in Humility at an altar within. The glyph illustrates a horizontal line as the altar. Below are the prayer mats where we kneel, and above are the channels through which we can draw down the Light of the Creator. We are called to turn to a Divine Authority to help us make a choice.
PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
Portal Days present a thinning of the veil where we are more capable to experience our Supernatural Gifts of Spirit and our connection to the Creator. 2 Reed/BEN will magnify our Sense of Divine Discernment. As we choose the Dream that would lead us on the Road to our Destiny, we are given a sense of Knowing that we are led under the direction of a Divine Authority.
Those born with the Day Sign of Reed/BEN are the protectors and guiding light for family and home. They hold the intention to bring Peace and Harmony to all their relations and are willing to take up the cause.
As we consider a new Dream, Reed/BEN guides us to call on Divine Support. Our first consideration should be whether our Dream could serve the greater good of the Whole. How could our Dream be a Blessing to those who are closest to us?
Reed/BEN holds the power for intellectual thinking to make a discernment of creation, re-creation, new directions and breaking the old ties that bind us. We are capable to see a new approach. Reed is a trailblazer and leader. The Blessing we can offer is by example. As we demonstrate the Faith to follow our own Dream, we are an encouragement to others to do the same. We become a demonstration of God’s Power in our Life.
BEN holds High Expectations for walking in our Truth. Only from a position of personal integrity can be we a good example for others. Reed/BEN is said to be a day to “bless or repair your home.” We are given the charge to resolve what needs to be repaired in our closest relationships.
Kneeling in Humility at the Altar of God, we can ask for Divine Direction. In this place we can remember that we are the Children of God. Our question doesn’t need to be whether we are capable to manifest our Dream, but whether the Dream is worthy in the Eyes of the Creator. The only thing we need to manifest any Dream is the Passion to reach for it and the Discernment that it is aligned with Divine Intention. When we know our Dream comes from a desire to Bless another, we establish the Faith that is needed to see us through. At the altar we surrender our Dreams into the Hands of an Almighty Authority.
Reed/BEN lies in the East, the direction of our success and happiness. When we begin from the place where the Sun rises, moved by Divine Inspiration, no matter which route is taken, we will always end up in the Light.
Tone 2 is a day for Intellectual thinking. It’s often a day when we are eager to take action, though we are guided to take our time to think things through. We can USE our sense of Duality to see the fears of our Lower Nature. Through Divine Discernment our illusions can be broken to establish the Faith that is needed. Reed/BEN can help us see our Dream as the essence of our Life’s Purpose. A Portal magnifies our Connection to the Creator to reveal the Divinity of our Inspiration. The Divine Source that inspired our Dream will also extend the Power for its Creation.
To all my relations, may we turn to the altar within that exists everywhere that we are. When we turn to this altar may a Portal help us to see ourselves appearing at an Altar Above. May we use our Intellect to establish the Faith that when our Dream is Aligned with a Divine Intention, our Personal Power is no longer a determining issue. We are always assured success when we position ourselves as co-creators of a Divine Intention. In Humility we also sacrifice the Way to carry it out, adopting the Faith that every experience is worthy. We can Anchor our Faith that a Dream will unfold under the Direction of a Power Greater than our Self. May we consider the Truth that we are Children of a Divine Creator, and One in a family where no child holds favor over another.
in lak’ech, I am another you

2 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
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.
