MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Greetings Kin, Bix a beel?
Tone 4 presents our stabilizing force for Spiritual Growth. The cube is the most stable of forms, creating volume by height, length and width. The 4 directions establish the form, parameters, and orientation. Tone 4 is said to establish “the rules of the game,” the framework and foundation for Creation.
Reed/BEN is an Altar of Communion between the Above and the Below. The glyph illustrates the channels of Light shining down. It is said they don’t reach all the way because Human still waits to see the Whole Glory of the Creator. Below are the thatched rugs where Human kneels in Humility.
Our foundation will be Humility in the presence of Divinity. Reed/BEN is the Sign of Family and Home that especially Honors the Children. We are ALL Children of a Supreme Creator. Our Intention to Create Love, Harmony, and Peace is the Movement of our Divine Nature. Our Communion with the One supports the Leap of Faith to Believe in our Divine Identity.
Reed/BEN is a day to Bless the Home. Home is our closest sphere of influence and our place of personal authority. Home is our nest for Creation.
The Elders called Reed the Hollow Bone. To be the Hollow Bone means to be free of expectations, totally open to receive Divine Inspiration, and also open to the experiences we leave in the Hands of the Creator. On our knees in Humility, we Offer our Faith in Divine Will as always better than our own.
PORTAL DAY: Element of Ether – Portals represent a thinning of the veil to other dimensions and magnifies our Spiritual Gifts of Discernment. A Portal will magnify our open Channel to the Creator. Reed/BEN is the Day Sign of spiritual masters and clairvoyants. We can be stabilized through a Spiritual Experience. 4 Reed/BEN guides us to Anchor Faith in the Divinity and Authority of the Intention to Create Unconditional Love for the Whole.
Reed/BEN is the defender of family and home. They hold the Higher Intention of bringing order, peace, and harmony to all their relations. Reed/BEN is a Day Sign of High Expectations that encourages us to live in the Integrity of our Divine Intention of Love.
The Creator didn’t intend for Limitations to Overcome us. We are Sacred as the Children of the Creator, the Elders said, the “Beloved.” For all our Human failure, we are the Living Sacrifice to a world of physicality. A Divine Authority Intended an Experience of Light Overcoming the Darkness. We are Unconditionally Loved for the Sacrifice of Time. We become Divine through our own Choice for the Creator’s Will. Reed/BEN puts down the roots of the Tree of Life, drawing Light from Above to establish its Foundation.
Climbing a pyramid of Spiritual Growth, we’re getting our balance and digging in to an Intention to Love. We are being challenged and impassioned to Love. Reed/BEN emphasizes the importance of family. Our biological families don’t always fulfill our need for Unconditional Love. We don’t have to let those expectations stand in our way. We can choose the Whole as our Family.
Reed/BEN holds high expectations. It warns us to lead with a rubber hose and not a steel pipe. One offers a flexible channel, while the other is rigid. The Dog trecena would remind us to take things as they come, as part of the experience.
To all my relations, may we humble ourselves before the altar of Unconditional Love where a channel to the Creator is always open. May we open our Heart without expectation except the Will of the Creator.
in lak’ech, I am another you

4 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
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 of their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a log of appreciation, many have a marriage or business problems because of inflexible views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.
Cherokee 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.

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.

How is your Spiritual path today?

UPDATE ON A LIFE DREAM:
On 4 Sun/AHAU I was able to make the reservations for the trip, arriving on October 28 as I had hoped to be there to celebrate Ian Lungold’s Mayan birthday, 12 Sun/AHAU, on October 31st along with the observance of the Day of the Dead. It felt important to the information I would share in my book. I’m grateful to be part of such a flow of Love, more necessary that money, for the realization of my dream. You are already the blessing of just being here. (But you could help me spread the word.) much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit
SEPTEMBER 12th Update:
I received my new passport! My Leap of Faith to buy the ticket before receiving it paid off. 🙂 The reality is starting to set in. I’m excited to carry you with me. My 68th gregorian birthday is this week. I know what a healing it will be to see I’m just as capable as I have always been to charge off into the unknown for the experience. (Monkey must be talking.) I couldn’t be doing this without you.
