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


10 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. The Seed/KAN trecena guides a season of creation. KAN represents the Force within the Seed. Our Choices identify our Divine Nature. Divine Choices always offer Signs and Symbols of a Creator of Divinity. As Divine Human Children, we are Creators of Signs and Symbols too.

If you think about it, ALL Creations of Love are Signs and Symbols. I’m sure many master artists have considered painting Love. How would you conceive the “Masterpiece of Love?”

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light of Family and Home. Reed’s Intention is centered on the well-being and guidance for the children. Reed holds very High Expectations of its own Love. Reed’s perspective of thought is the one our Divine Nature holds on behalf of a new generation. If you have been a parent, you may remember.

Before the children came, you already had the Wisdom to make better choices. Just knowing the wise choices, didn’t mean we’d make them for our Self. We were still exploring our Freedom of Choice. A family creates a Divine Reason to make them. Now we have to teach someone else about wise choices. They won’t Believe we really Believe what we say without a demonstration. With the role of leadership in the family, we are inclined to straighten up our own act, to demonstrate what we hope our children will be.

There’s a fine line when it comes to High Expectations for our Children. Reed notes the Shadow side as a leader who rules with a steel pipe instead of a garden hose that could bend and offer Love as a Blessing to Spirit. To share the Wisdom of Love, we have to direct our Children to the Higher Authority of Love. We have to allow them to see that we failed too and that our failures won’t define us, as long as we Know a place to take our own broken dream for our Self. We have to give thought to our unrealistic expectations and the burden we impose if we expect more of them than we could count on in our Self.

Reed/BEN illustrates an altar with two channels of Light shining down from Above. The horizontal line is the altar. Below are the prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. Reed illustrates the direct Channels of Love between the Above and the Below. The Elders always explain Reed as the “Hollow Bone.” To maintain the open channel for a Divine Communion above requires Humility. The “human flesh” is our Ego that must be stripped away to allow our Divine Nature to step into the Light. Humility is a gift of Equality to our children. We could just tell them, “Because I said so,” or we could have a conversation about Divine Reasons for doing things. We could ask them what some of their Divine Reasons could be. We could actually open our mind to our children to recognize their Wisdom of Innocence. Children can teach us a LOT about the world and our Self. We Empower our children when we See and Acknowledge them BORN with the Gift of Divine Consciousness. All we have to do is demonstrate how to Act Upon the Divine Wisdom we already know.

The only way to teach a child how to act, is to act that way. That is a Divine Meaning and Purpose for family. When children know Love, they want to be just like us. (At least, most children do until they are 13. We have to remember on their behalf the Times and Places they are between one thing and another… THEIR chaos of change.)

We learned that to carry on our New Life of Happiness we ALWAYS have to have a journey of Creation in progress. If we think there’s nothing left in the world for us to create, we lose our own Reason to Be. Family was the Provision through which our Creation of Love could carry on after we’re gone. It’s a Creation we could Dream of to the very end of a lifetime. Family is a Divine Love we should believe in and attempt from every Beginning, instead of the “last ditch effort” to claim it. We Know it. Limitations exposed within the circle of our Greatest Love, will hold the Wisdom for the future.

Reed/BEN is the Spark in our Divine Nature that attempts the Demonstration. We are trying to personify the Creator’s Love. It requires our Passion to even come close. The Creator knew its own greatest passion was the Scion, the firstborn that was the Whole of Humanity. We were given Children to Know the Passion of Compassionate Love.

Reed lies in the East, the direction of Divine Inspiration, new beginnings, and the Sunrise. All those symbols are seen by our Spirit through the experience of the family.  To keep the Divine Truth in tact we have to share both our strength and weakness.

The glyph shows two channels of Light at the alter. Today, I see a place for Human Being and a place for a Divine Being. Kneeling in Humility to a Divine Power Above, one is seen Equally Sacred as the Other. They were each given a Direct Channel of Light. We must claim a Divine Truth for our children that the Creator’s Love shines down for the WHOLE of them. Human is Sacred for the attempt of something Divine. Spirit is Sacred for holding the Consciousness of what would be Divine.

When we offer the personal demonstration, we symbolize the Divine Reasons we made the journey. We go there to remember a Divine Love. We go there believing if we ask for help, Love will Answer.

Truth isn’t ours until we claim it as our own Wisdom… Truth we ACCEPT and claim to Believe. There are a lot of reasons we don’t want to claim the Truth in our Life. Facing hard Truths, we see the reality of Wise Choices necessary for our own Happiness. Our Happiness WILL generate more Happiness in the Whole. Love is never the Truth without the Choice that goes with it.

In the Circle of Life we can see 3 perspectives of Divine Love. Parents were meant to demonstrate the Divine Duty of Love. Grandparents hold the Wisdom to offer the Freedom for Happy Choices (and bending the rules). The Child reflects the most Divine Perspective. The Symbol of Believing in Love and a Second Chance are ALWAYS written on their face.

Reed/BEN is a day observed for Offering a Blessing of our Home and Family. This is a day when the Maya check in on their extended family and neighbors to offer the lending hand. In a Loving family the house doesn’t have to be clean for their arrival. A Divine family doesn’t show up to judge, but to discern where someone else could use our helping hand. Family doesn’t have to be “entertained” when they come. Family members – either natal family, or the people we love like family, have the advantage to offer quick service and get back to their own business.

It’s funny when you look closely at our family reunions. Blood is often the only thing we have in common. We want to be re-united as we were in the beginning. We miss one another… the ties that bind. It’s the symbols we Love. When we’re in the reality of the experience, and the TRUTH of how very different we are, we’re surprisingly ready to go back home. 🙂 It’s Divine to Uphold the Symbols of Love in the Highest Experience we Knew. Shared Symbols magnify the Light of Love.

To all my relations, may we always Ask the Creator to Know the Truth. May we remember the One that Knows better than we do, what would really make us happy. May we claim the Truths of Love will ALWAYS lead us in a direction of Happiness. Some journeys will lead us away from something, but the Divine Truths that turn us around will always lead to our own Greater Happiness. May we claim that ALL Truth sets us Free to follow a Chosen Dream of Happiness. We were given the reigns of our own Life to build a legacy for a New Generation. May we claim the Truth a Divine Seed WILL carry on.

May we recognize how much our children can teach us about Unconditional Love and Believing. Children are nearer to the experience of Oneness and all Possibilities. They can share the Faith that began as Believing. May we claim our own Divine Time and Place in the Living Circle of the Creator’s Love.

We are the Master Artist intended to create the Masterpiece Expression of Love that every Spirit would See and Acknowledge as Divine. We might paint the journey to an altar we come to when we’re broken. The Light still shines as it always will. We could claim a Savior’s Truth when Human fails, “They just forgot. They don’t know what they’re doing.”

On Mother’s Day may we remember the symbols of Compassionate Love and the Duty to Keep Loving, whether the Love is ever be fully Seen or Acknowledged. May we remember just how Divine it IS when a Human Mother even comes close to pulling it off. Reed/BEN is identified as a symbol of the Divine Masculine Love. The Love of the Father was a Divine Acknowledgement of the Mother through the Choice that Her Love would be the First Demonstration of Love we should Know. Through Her, we would Know the Love that is an “object of affection” – a Divine Symbol in the Father’s eyes.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to the Divine Feminine that lies in every Human, the part of us that is willing to take on the thankless acts of Love, bearing all the mistakes of Love, for the Sake of the Life, Love, and Happiness. May we see the Strength of the Duty in the Maternal Instinct, the Fire of Primal Love that forges the links of family into the Divine Circle of Love. As we celebrate symbols of Mother’s Love may we Remember to offer a Divine Blessing for our Home on Mother Earth.

May 10, 2019 – The Sun that Set for the Dawning of a New Life. The Sunset given my prayers for you and me, rose to shine its first light on 9 Road/EB, Saturday, May 11, 2019. A Divine Creator knew there would be lots of calendars. Saturday has become a symbol of the day we get to do what we really want to do. I pray you have Saturday off. And, if you don’t, I honor you for the sacrifice for others to see it that way.  On my list is the beautification of the home (ie clean up the mess), and a journey to some 140 lb watercolor paper. Love, Debra

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.

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.

    Oh No, I’m not asking, I am just preparing for another Fire ceremony tonight. This Journey of Realization Trecena is truly informative when one opens mind and heart to it.

    I am grateful that the Creator created humanity and the great dark and mysterious Mother Earth and provided redemption and grace as ways to restore and share Unconditional Love.

    May we share and appreciate the beauty and abundance of our Earth Mother’s subsistence and support. Many thanks to you for keeping us inspired and informed. This is a great Mother’s Day focus. [Still trying to get less wordy!]
