10 Reed / BEN – Journey of Self Realization: Day 10 of 13


Greetings Kin,

10 Reed / BEN

The Seed/KAN trecena is guiding us to see the Truth of Human’s Divine Design. On Tone 10 of Manifestation we have an opportunity to claim a new Truth of who we are. We are building on the Wisdom of the Monkey/CHUEN trecena that inspired us to see the Creator in our self. Under the guidance of Seed/KAN we are transformed by an application of this Truth.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign that draws our Consciousness to Home and Family. Reed is a day to “bless and repair our home.”

The glyph illustrates and altar with it’s horizontal line. Above are the channels through we the Light of the Creator is drawn down to our Earthly experience. Below are the prayer mats where we would kneel in humility.

As we start the journey of a new year, we are reminded of the Light that is always there to guide us. In position to receive such Power we must acknowledge that the Spark within is the source of our Divinity. Our only way to carry such power is in the Humility of knowing it isn’t “of us.” We are only the vessel through which it flows.

Tone 10 allows us to see the Truth of our Transformation.  To manifest the Truth of our Power we must be able to see it to claim it for our Self. As we do a thorough housecleaning, we can see old crutches that can now be thrown away.

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.

Our Communion with the Creator is a two-way channel. As we kneel at the altar within, we are present at a Divine Altar above. By offering our Self, we can identify with our True source of Power.

The family and home is the place of our greatest influence. Not only is the place where we have influence over others, but it is a place of greatest influence in how we see our Self. Home is the place where we are given the “rules and regulations” of living. It is the source that creates our culture. To show the way for others, we must be a living demonstration. Only through our communion with the Creator can we abide under a Divine Authority.

Reed/BEN holds High Expections. It comes with the caution that to be an example to others we must lead with a rubber hose, and not a steel pipe. As Human we can never know exactly how another must forge their relationship with the Creator. What worked for us, may not work for them. Our way of living must evidence Light that others will know they can find for their Self.

Real transformation is based on proven personal Truth. Human is a creature of Reason. We are seldom satisfied by what others would present as the Truth. The Truth we can stand on is born through the Wisdom of our own experience.

It’s hard to allow others to find their own way when we’re convinced we’ve got the answer. We’d like to save them the Time and Hard Lessons we had to experience. We can’t BE the Authority over others, only reflect that our Happiness is found living under a Divine Authority. We can share all the values and Truths we’ve learned in the way we treat each other. The Divinity of the Creator will be seen through our own example of Unconditional Love.

We must also allow for the possibility of others to grow beyond us. The Blessing of Being Different is that each of us has something unique to bring. We might think of the wisdom that is shared by children. That naturally know the ways of Love. We must reflect that none of us as Human are “higher” or “lower” than another. The Truths we are sure are crystal clear, could change with our next Transformation. We must hold the channel open for all possibility.

It’s our Human Nature to look for all the answers outside of our Self. After all, we’re the center of our own physical experience always looking outward. It would seem easier if someone else could just tell us all the rules and how things work. However to affect change we must know it for our Self. We must be able to see it through our own experience. This aspect of our Spiritual Nature insures that our Salvation would be dependent upon living under the Authority of someone else. We have to stand up on our own two feet, balanced in our own Truth of the Creator.

The best we can do is to be there for one another throughout the process. We are drawn to the Creator by Love and not Judgement. Judgement was not among the Authorities of the Creator that was shared with Human. A Higher Court of Spirit must be perfectly fair to offer equality to every Human. Divine Justice requires a Discernment that’s Higher than our Human Understanding.

This is a day to repair our home and the relationships where we have imposed our Human Authority. We could consider the battle scars that were necessary to discover our own truth. We can’t save another from the hard road of life, we can only be there Loving them through it. That’s the way the Creator Loves us unconditionally, allowing us the dynamic experience of finding our own Truth.

Reed/BEN shows us the way to live in Harmony to all our Relations, by honoring the Divine Channel that each Human carries within our own Heart. Humbled to the Divinity in one another, we magnify our own Communion with the Creator. We Honor the God in You and Me.

The most we can share are the Signs of a Divine Relationship. A Journey to Divine Consciousness would always bear the same fruit of Love, Forgiveness, Kindness, Peace and Joy. This fruit is always within our Human capability to Know and Recognize. Our Intention to Know the Creator allows for God to Intervene through Miracles of Understanding.

To all my relations, may we believe in a Season of Miracles. May we believe in the Miracle for others that is delivered directly from God’s hands. We don’t have to straighten anyone out. Our example of Love, Forgiveness, Kindness, Peace and Joy will do far more good to help others seek their own way to manifest it for themselves. As we start a new journey may we walk side-by-side, not before or after another. May we see that we were all created the same, yet different in our ways of becoming. We can grow from the Truth that is born of our own experience.  May we see one another as all One Family, each sharing the Divinity of being a first descendant of a Divine Creator. May we recognize the Presence of God in each other.

in lak’ech, i am another you

10 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)


Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
