THE TRECENA OF STAR/LAMAT – THE ASCENDING 13-DAY CYCLE OF THE TZOLK’IN ROUND OF HUMAN CREATION
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 6 we enter the Peak Energy of Flow. Tone 6 represents the Momentum that is created from a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement. The climb for a new life calls for the Highest Application of Wisdom that’s been learned from Divine Inspiration and the Application of Truth from our own experience.
Through a sacrifice of our Feelings, we can SEE the Truth. Though, it requires an Intention to look beyond the human emotions tied to our ego. We can FEEL the difference. One hurts, hoping for a human end. The Ego will turn itself inside out to believe the unbelievable, when it claims it would be THE MIRACLE. Opening our heart always holds the potential for vulnerability. For those who Intend to take advantage, we’re an easy mark… always reaching to see the Light in another human being.
Reed/BEN offers the way to navigate the darkness and light in the world. Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for family and home. BEN holds very high expectations, and Feels the Passion to uphold them through the Application of Divine Wisdom. The Wisdom of BEN is knowing that everyone MUST claim their own Truth. My Truth won’t work for everyone. God is the only one that knows the story that raised the Truth that was critical for me to know. NO other Human Being has the best Truth for YOU. Your’s is the ONLY Truth that was discerned in Divine Communion, directly with the One that KNOWS your whole story – and what YOU are destined to know as YOUR Divine Justice. Reed/BEN leaves the children in God’s Hands. We have to make the journey on the “hard road” to KNOW the Truth. We can guide children by our own demonstration of Faith, we can even lead them to an altar. Though, what they know and believe is ordered for their own Divine Time. We can guide them by the Wisdom of our Inheritance, but every Human must make the Divine Choice, and must learn to discern their own Truth. Otherwise, they will be lost without us.
The glyph of Reed/BEN illustrates an altar with the channels of Light above it and the prayer mats below, where Human kneels in Humility. Only in Humility can we see the Light of God’s Divine Truth. The Elders remind us of the “hollow bone.” The flesh must be burned away to receive the Light and Wisdom of Divine Truth. Humility means we’re willing to be wrong. Humans hate to be wrong, especially when we think we’ve made a Divine Discernment of Truth. We feel broken when we haven’t seen the truth due to our human limitations. The Elders also said that discernment of Truth takes courage. To be successful we have to be willing to see our own ego.
God’s is the Guiding Light that leads us one-by-one by the Truth that is KNOWN through our own Heart. A priest who leads a way to an altar is only the Reminder to turn to the Faith of our Own Path to believe. We Honor the whole in remembering that ALL paths to Create Love as a Sacred Exchange are Divine. Love is ONLY manifested through Harmony and Equity. Creating Love always requires the Consciousness of the Golden Rule. The most important Truth of Right Relationship was made the EASIEST Truth for Human to Believe… so easy, it’s Common Sense.
When human holds a Truth of Common Sense, it doesn’t mean we’ll follow. Though, one way or another, we will Know we made a Conscious Choice. With the courage to look within, we’ll know why our choice didn’t uphold the Highest Good for the Whole. On our Ascending Climb, 13 Sun/AHAU is the Highest Illumination of our Most Divine Way To Be. In the darkness, we learn from an equal and opposite direction. We’ll carry on, focusing on the “X” without turning back to the world’s illusions.
It’s easy to see others fall down. It may ease the pain of Human emotions to blame. Though, we wouldn’t learn a thing. An Abiding Light offers a provision for the vulnerability of our Human Nature. Through a choice of Humility, we claim the Wisdom of our experience. Our Milestones of Truth are kept in tact because we REMEMBER FEELINGS. We just have to get used to this THIN SKIN and Remember it was the way to Expand and Grow. We’re guaranteed a few skinned knees. They don’t kill us, even if they leave a scar. Better treated than left to fester. Feeling is a Gift of Divine Discernment. No one can feel for us. It’s a living sacrifice.
Reed/BEN resides in the East, the direction of Divine Inspiration. The Element of Fire holds the Power to Change us. The Elders say we must sit with the Fire. The heat is an application of Divine Medicine. They ALWAYS said that EVERYTHING wants to be Seen and Acknowledged. “Who are you, and what do you want?” That was taught as the worthy question to ask. Unless there’s a divine inspiration, you can order it to leave and always give a blessing of gratitude for the experience. Calling upon your own Guardian Angels, Archangels, or the Masters of your path to escort them away was the Divine Provision.
Unless we are “hollow bone” we will be vulnerable, ruled by our emotions. We don’t have to be “right” and we can only remember when we’re ready to “give up” trying to figure things out. All we ever need to believe is an answer to Our Prayers, when we forgive and uphold the Highest Good for the Whole. Truth always serves a Divine end when we bare our Own Truth at an altar. We can be Human. We were created both ways.
Life could be a dream when we can go with the Flow. Monkey/CHUEN would remind us, we can always Create some Beauty in our Imagination. The Raccoon would help wash some awful things, that we claim as our most treasured new possession. It’s VERY curious how one thing can lead to another. We climbed this far to see the Future waiting at the next horizon. We can at least focus on a Dream until the “big reveal” at the end.
We were intended the Wisdom of Heaven AND Earth. There are TWO channels and TWO mats because God’s Truth is Divine Justice for the WHOLE of who we are. Our Abiding Light will always be the Power of Authority. Truth IS leading to a New Life.
On Tone 6 our movement transforms for dynamic developments. The dancer practiced all the steps, and now the Movement becomes an Expression of Art. Every ascension is an Initiation. The final Ascension is a Transformation of Mastery.
I saw a whole story of Life when the House Finch built their next in the rafters of my balcony. All that time spent in the egg was like our first season. At the Dawn of every new Awakening – the beginning of a new round – we wake up like we’ve forgotten the whole thing. We have to start over again, though we will begin with our own Higher Consciousness of the Truth. That’s why NOW IS THE TIME to KNOW AND FEEL what burns in your heart. The More we Feel Now, the More we will Remember. The more we Remember, the Power of Love, the more our possibilities in the future will be Multiplied to Abundance.
Going with the Flow we Feel will be Our Expression of Truth. We learn from success and failure. A “wrong way” can inspire a “new way” we never thought of before.
For all the darkness we’ll feel, God can build Faith in the Miracle. Love will hurt sometimes, when the Ego forgets that it takes a Divine Cause to create a Divine Effect.
When we Forgive, we’ll see the Truth of human limitations on both sides. How long did WE wander in the darkness? There will never be an “arrival” for the living. The higher we go, the more we’ll get to see. THIS climb is that 60-degree grade “stairs to heaven” at Uxmal, the Divine Feminine University. The Human Seed will be fired in us for a new Harvest of Light. We’re almost there.
Tone 6 offers the Peak Motivation to go with the Flow. We see the Truth of Forward Movement that has drawn us forward, while we were moving side-to-side. Ones that came before created the Momentum of Love, through the Time and Life of every generation. Someone HAS prayed for us.
Reed/BEN is said to be a good day to Bless your Home. At an altar we can Count the Blessings of a Sanctuary where Light and Truth is always visible. It is also a good day to check in on the neighbors. BEN is the Guiding Light for a Divine Family, one that shares the Love of Belonging and the Compassion of Understanding. Right Relationship is built on believing in one another, and a Choice to follow the One Light that Guides the Whole.
To all my relations, may we be willing to fall down to walk into Our New Life. The blessing of our Future is worth it. We only have to look to see we’re leaving the old life behind.
May we call upon a Divine Agency to help us Forgive so nothing will hold us back. We only need to pray for the Willingness to Forgive to hold Faith in the Divine Intervention.
May we remember that with every limitation we’re willing to see, the Wisdom of our Experience will be a Gift of Exponential Value. We will Love the Divine Truth we have and hold. When we dare to make TRUTH the “object of our affection” at all costs, we will manifest the Gift of Divine Genius.

THE WESAK MOON: A BLESSING FROM THE HIGHEST ALTAR
The Wesak Moon rises by Pacific Time in the middle of the night. The Blessing of Water everywhere is poured out in the 8 minutes the Moon rises to its Highest Light. May we remember with Gratitude a Blessing to ALL things that hold the Living Water of Light. May we prepare to release the ashes of our past for the Blessing to Rise again. We are given the Time as a Blessing for our Highest Illumination. Today is a Time to Prepare at our own altar for the Blessing that will be offered to Mother Earth. We will release the Beauty of Flowers as our offering to the Full Flowering Moon.
Some set a vessel of water outside to receive the Blessing that transforms it to Holy Water. So can our sacred objects and crystals receive the blessing for us to remember. Follow the Truth that YOU believe. ALL WAYS are Divine. YOUR way is your most Divine Way as the Inspiration of Your Divine Communion. This is time to give thanks and offer our Prayers for the WHOLE, and the Light that leads us all to the Same Divine End of Love.
For the Sacred Ceremony we hold within, may our flowers be the Blessings we count One by One for the Truth that ALL Divine Dreams ARE ALWAYS possible and Meant To Be, through a Divine Provision for ALL THINGS made possible by Love. You can choose your own Time and Place. The Elders say that Mother Earth always receives our blessings as a Divine Surprise. She holds the Feelings of a Mother’s Heart. We were Given ALL Time for every Divine Purpose of Love. Jaguar Spirit’s Offering to Celebrate Together in Spirit

6 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
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.

AN INVITATION FOR EXCHANGE…
My hope for the comment section is a place to track the synchronicity of our experience. The compliments are kind, though they always feel in conflict with a mission of Humility. I don’t claim any wisdom here. I’m learning like you one day at a time. The journal comes through as a morning meditation, so it doesn’t feel like mine. Typos are the evidence of a limited human on the back end. God gets all the credit, except for the typos, and my collaboration on the art. 🙂
MUCH LOVE AND GRATITUDE, in lak’ech, Debra
To Pass through the Gate of the Oracle requires the Courage to stand on the Truth of our Intention.
