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


12 Reed/BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. Extending the Gift of Retrospection we can Divinely Comprehension the Wisdom of our Experience. 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. Reed takes up the cause to establish Divine Authority. Reed/BEN guides us to bend our own rules of Love to allow others their own Freedom to Choose. Reed/BEN carries out the Deer’s Mission at the altar of Home.

Our Home is the circle we drew around our Creation, defining our place for communion with the Creator. Within our Circle is the Whole of the Creator’s Creation of Beauty, Mother Earth. Through her we can see all the Perfect Beauty wrought by the Creator’s Breath. We can see what we are made of and the Beauty that is ours To Be through a Divine Transformation by Spirit. Existing in this place of Home, all the dreams we would manifest can be born from the Source of Divine Inspiration, beginning and ending under the Authority of the One Divine Source of Unconditional Love.

Home is the place where we can enter in and close the door behind us to all the influences and distractions of a material world of influence. Here we are given the Time and Place for our own Divine Discernment of the Condition of our own Heart. As the first-born children of a Supreme Creator, our Home is within the silence of a Divine Time and Place of Communion.

Our Divine Home is a sanctuary within where we are safe when we’re broken. Miracles by definition are the Acts of God that exceed our Human limitation. In the willingness and safety of a surrender our hearts will be Blessed and Repaired by a Power Greater than our Own.

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.

The Elders share the story of Reed as the “hollow bone,” being stripped clean of our fleshly desires and expectations. Surrendering all our expectations of how we “think things should be” we are opened to whatever the Creator sees as the experiences that will lead to our own next Miracle of Understanding.

12 Reed/BEN opens a Divine Channel for our Ascension to the shape-shifter and Light of Spirit, 13 Jaguar/IX. We will reach Higher Ground. What we saw as “unforgivable” will disappear as the Answer to Divine Will.

To all my relations, may we claim each one of us as members of our Divine Family. May we be humbled by our human limitations, and allow them to be the darkness that will help us see the Light. May we Bless the Home we were given by the Creator, the place where the “I Am” Seed is made imperishable.

May we be open to Wisdom Higher than our Own. “Grandfathers, Grandmothers, be with us now. May we hear the Truth you would have us Know Today. Help us see the Wisdom from the Light of DIVINE Consciousness.”

in lak’ech, i am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN

PS. Thank you for your patience with all my typos. Getting words straight on a page has been a challenge this Mercury Retrograde. I’ve created my own new “exceptions” report at work to track the glitches, postponements, and looming deadlines. All the bulbs in the lamps went out at the same time last night. I’m getting new ones to replace them today. Maybe they are Timed for the Light. Thanks for being here with me anyway. At my worst, your love and companionship means the most. Maybe that’s the lesson for Right Relationship. The worse we are the more we need each other. my love, Debra

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.

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.
