12 Reed / BEN – Mission of Spirit: Day 12 of 13


12 Reed/BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 offers a Gift of Retrospection. On Tone 12 we are changed by a new Truth that moves from the Head to the Heart.

12 Reed/BEN is Kin 233, the 12th Tone in the 12th uinal of the Tzolk’in. We are drawing together the Understanding of a harvest cycle of Spiritual Growth.

Reed/BEN is the guiding Light for Family and Home. Reeds are tough an analytical. They know the rules of order that bring Peace and Harmony to all their relations. They are willing to take up a cause to establish Divine Authority for the purpose of Right Relationship.

Reed/BEN guides us to a new Understanding through our experience of family relationships.

The Reed/BEN glyph represents an altar. Above are Channels of Light from Above to Below. Below are the prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. Reed is the Channel of Communion between Heaven and Earth. We draw down the Light of Understanding in a position of Humility.

Reed/BEN as the 12th Tone in the Wind/IK trecena holds the Intention to Raise our Consciousness to the Breath of Life and Spirit. Wind is guiding us to a Truth about Creation. Wind has raised our Consciousness to a Truth that Every Thing Created was designed for a Meaning and Purpose. We were designed to do something the Creator Dreamed we would Accomplish.

Human’s Divine Destiny was to be the channel through which the Light of the Creator would be drawn from Spirit into the realm of physicality. The Creator’s Light contains more Unconditional Love than one Human Being could every draw into the world alone. The Whole of Humanity is needed to channel the full light of the Creator. Our Highest Purpose can only be accomplished together.

Each one of us was created to become a personification of the Creator. Each birth is an Intention to bring a new Light and Life into the family. As Divine Spirits we hold an inherent gift of Light. This would be our most important discovery, the Truth of who we are and why we’re here.

The one thing we ALL have in common is our birthright. We were all created to reflect the image of the Creator. We discover our own Divinity through the Consciousness of our relationship with the Creator. Through an Intention to live our lives in Spirit, we chose a path of Forgiveness that would reflect the Light of our own Divinity.  Through Forgiveness others would Know their own value inherent to their Being.

Reed/BEN reminds us that we are all equal members of a Divine Family. We were equally given the Gifts that would guide us to make a Divine Choice for each other. Through an evolution of Consciousness we would know we aren’t alone, that together we are the One.  Our Love of One Another is the Hope for Humanity.

To all my relations, may we Know that we are all members of the same family. May we see that every one of us was created for a Divine Purpose. Our Spiritual Gifts are the Keys to the Unseen Kingdom of Spirit. May we know that there’s no reason to compete with one another. We were all born on the same team. Reed/BEN is a day to “repair our home.” May we draw our Spiritual Family together by believing that each one of us holds a special purpose, different yet equal to one another. We are all the “most valuable player” in the Creator’s Dream. May our Forgiveness allow others to Know they are seen as “family,” an identity that creates the ties that bind us together as One. May we take up a cause for one another, that No One will be left behind.

in lak’ech, i am another you

21-Days of Gratitude: Day 20

I’m grateful that we are offered a Love so Great that it exceeds the limits of our Human understanding. I’m grateful we were given a way to see it through our Spiritual Gifts.

12 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/ I’HYA)

Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

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.

[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. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
