DEDICATED TO IAN XEL LUNGOLD
The journal for the Offering/MULUC trecena is dedicated to Ian Xel Lungold. This is the Galactic Week of Ian’s Destiny Kin, 12 Sun/AHAU. Ian will be honored on my trip to the Yucatan over the Day of the Dead observances in gratitude for my first introduction to the Mayan Calendar. Ian’s Destiny was to share the Light of Illumination (Sun/AHAU) for Divine Understanding (Tone 12). Thank you Ian!
My deepest Thanks and Appreciation are extended to Michael Shore who has preserved Ian’s wisdom on MayanMajix.com, and for being a friend and helper on my own path. Thank you Michael!
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. Tones 1 through 6 represents our new climb of Spiritual Growth. We were given stability by 4 Road/EB by honoring the Choice made by Human to Offer our Self in a Divine Intention of Love and Forgiveness. An Offering for the Sake of Love will return the Blessing of Atonement. Through milestones of Consciousness the Creator will guide the direction of the climb we make through the darkness.
Tone 5 is the Center of the Cube, the central organizing force who manages all our Spiritual Tools and Resources for application. Tone 5 gathers our strength for the climb.
Reed/BEN is illustrated as an altar. The glyph shows two channels of Light shining down on an altar, and below the woven mats where Human kneels in Communion with the Creator.
Reed is the guiding light for family and home. Above all, Reed “endeavors to bring peace, harmony, and order to all their relations.” Reed holds high expectations for itself and others and is willing to take up the cause. Reed holds High Expectations for others, with the clarification that its best to lead with a garden hose and not a steel pipe. Reed creates Unity by expecting the best from others. Reed doesn’t rule by authority, but leads by example.
Reed/BEN holds Divine Expectations of Human. Holding the Power to Create what we hold in our imagination, we can lift others by holding them in their Highest Light. We create what we believe and see in our imagination. Like Ian said, “What we pay attention to, we become conscious of.” If we look for the good in each other, that’s what we’ll see. When we See and Acknowledge others in their Highest Light, they are naturally drawn into sympathy.
Divine Expectations must be different than our Human Expectations. As Human, where inclined to judge others when they don’t meet our standards or rules. As a Divine Being, we take a broader view. If we bend, we can see that our “good” and “bad” behavior is only a matter of what we are conscious of in the moment. The journey that leads through the darkness of our fear will always reveal the ways we are broken. From our ego, we compare the “worst behavior” in another to the “best behavior” in our Self, even though we fail at our own Best Intentions.
Reed/BEN resides in the East, the direction of the Sunrise, a new beginning of Divine Illumination. Through an Intention of Humility, we can turn things around. Whenever we face the East, our journey will always end up in the Light. To manifest our Dream of Love, we offer a Blessing of Seeing the Light of another Human and bend to the suffering that needs our Love. Giving first will generate the Power for Right Relationships.
Human’s struggle is our own disappointment in our Self. We try and we fail every time we forget. This is the reason some give up. “Why put so much effort into an Intention we’ll never be able to accomplish perfectly?” Humans give up when convinced they “aren’t enough.” When we are focused on the weakness of another, we will interact in ways that reinforce that truth.
A friend once told me that the reason they never dedicated themselves to a spiritual path was because of the High Expectations. They thought that making such a commitment required a promise to be perfect. They were thinking of all the things they would have to give up doing to stay in line with all the rules. The Divine Journey is never about being perfect, it’s about Loving. We are all broken. We can see the Light in another when we kneel in the Humility.
Our Relationships with one another are Sacred. When we are turned around in Right Relationship, there is so much we can learn from each other. Reed/BEN guides us to our Highest Expectations for our Self, and our Broadest Understanding of Others. When we live in Integrity, expecting the Light in each other, we Acknowledge our Divinity.
Reed/BEN is a day to “Bless and Repair our Home.” Unconditional Love is a Blessing that can only be made in Humility. It’s a Divine Love given for the Sake of Love, asking nothing in return. This is the climb we’re being inspired to make.
This climb has been as steep as a real pyramid. I’ve been presented with opportunities to give Unconditional Love, where Love isn’t returned. Today, on 4 Road/EB, there were no answers for now, and little hope in the future. I came to the end of my Road. Out of gas with two more steps to go. I wondered, what Divine Discernment could heal my emotions.
We are called to the Highest Altar of the 11th uinal to bring our Greatest Sacrifice. The MULUC trecena is about the Offering of a Savior. The “Wounded Healer” and “Christ Spirit” are our Divine Examples who Volunteer to carry out Love as a Sacrifice for a Divine Purpose. We Ascended from the Wisdom/CIB trecena with the Higher Education of Forgiveness. The MULUC trecena is inspiring us to see where Forgiveness can be an Offering for an Atonement. As the Conditional Love of our Ego is torn from our Heart, we are One with the Heart of Divine Consciousness that can Shine Through Us.
Love and Forgiveness are most Divine when there’s no Human promise of a return. We’ll find our Power down on our Knees in Humility in the Presence of the Creator. We are made the Open Channel for the Divine Love through the Sacrifice of Human Love. Divine Justice is promised as our return, Multiplied to Abundance.
Today Reed inspires our Human strength in our Intention to set the example of Unconditional Love, and to Manifest More Love, through an Intention to Give it First.
The Whole of Humanity is bearing the suffering of Separation. We’ve been divided, drawn an quartered into an endless number of “different” pieces. We fail to look for all the ways we’re the same.
To all my relations, may we exist surrounded by a circle of the Creator’s Love. May we Offer the Love that wants something back, to receive our Divine Return from an Endless Supply of Love that doesn’t place any conditions. May we be Illuminated by Love that sees the condition of our Heart and Intends the Spiritual Power in us to go on Loving, especially when we’re broken. May we rejoice that our Mission was never to be perfect, but a Mission to Love. May we offer a Blessing to our Home and Family. May we look up where the Jaguar is waiting with the Magic of Gratitude. May we remember that Miracles always happen in strange and unexpected ways.
in lak’ech, i am another you

“What you pay attention to, you become conscious of.”
“The only exercise of your free will is your choice of what to pay attention to. The mind, the throne of your ego, is something that you can choose to pay attention to or not. Just by paying more attention to what is going on in front of your face than to what your mind “thinks’ about it, will defeat the Ego every time.”

5 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’hya)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
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 endeaver 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, 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.

How is your Spiritual path today?
I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!
SPIRIT IS WAITING IN EK’ BALAM…
This is the Time and Place of a Miracle. It’s been my Dream to experience and see the place where the sacred traditions of the Maya are carried out, and where Ian Lungold was inspired to share the blessing of the Tzolk’in calendar.
The Truth that this dream is coming true has led me on many early visits to imagine these places in the future. I wonder how closely my vision will align with the reality of the experience. Last night as I imagined again the prayers we would offer before entering Ek’ Balam. We will pray to enter in a way than Honors the Ancestors and their memory of this place. I was suddenly aware of the Host of Divine Spirits inside. No words were spoken, only the shared Consciousness of Spirits that already know we’re coming. and wait for our arrival. I knew they knew because of an Intention made in Spirit. All who choose to be present are already expected by the Spirits of Ek’ Balam.
You made this possible. My Dream now is to stand on Holy Ground with you. We are ALL on Holy Ground of Mother Earth. I invite you to take off your shoes on October 31st to stand on the same Holy Ground to share the Sacred Ceremony at Ek’ Balam.
I extend my deepest Appreciation to all of you. Those whose donations made a way, and those whose presence with me here are One in the Miracle of Believing it was possible. “Thank you” can’t express what I feel in my heart. all my love, Debra
