THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN, AN ALTAR OF LIGHT
The Next 13-Days…
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home. Reed guides the creation of Harmony and Equity for all our Relations. We Ascended with the Light to know the way. 13 Road/EB marked a Milestone, a Time and Place when our Heart would believe. The Wisdom of Love and Answered Prayers was Illuminated by the Highest One. Our Heart was called to the Highest Road, believing Love will create a Divine Way.
Reed/BEN holds the Element of Fire, a Divine Power that changes matter from one form to another. The Fire of Reed/BEN will change the “matters of Faith” to employ a new gift of Believing for its Highest Purpose. Higher Love will guide us to share the Divine Truth of Answered Prayers, and the Way to Believe.
Reed/BEN illustrates an altar with two channels of Light shining down from Above. Below are two prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. We claim an exponential Power of Trinity when 2 are aligned as 1.
BEN holds very High Expectations and the Wisdom to rule with a garden hose, rather than a steel pipe. One hurts and the other pours our the Blessings of Living Water to the Spirit. BEN’s nahaul is one that serves as the Head of the Family. BEN is known for taking up a Cause on behalf of the Whole. BEN leads by example. BEN is the state-of-mind we hold when we begin a family. We are motivated to follow our own good advice.
Reed/BEN resides in the East, the direction of the Sunrise and a New Beginning. BEN holds a Passion for the Lives of the Children. Reed/BEN shares God’s Divine Love that is Seeing and Acknowledging the Light in one another. We’ll see how every member of a family has a Divine Light to share. BEN’s intention is to lead others to an alter so they will Know the Atonement of a Divine Creator. As much as we may Love our own Way, a Reed bends to allow ALL Divine Ways. In the Divine Balance, Children will lead US to the altar.
TRECENA OF LIGHT
BEN guides a 13-day cycle of Incoming Inspiration. Holding the Element of Fire, BEN initiates a cycle of transmutation, changing the form of one thing into another. Family changes us. We take on multiple human identities as a Mother, Father, Sister, or Brother. Charity begins at Home with the Reed and extends to Chosen Family and sphere of influence. BEN can inspire us to take up a Cause. On Reed/BEN the Maya check in on their neighbors to lend a helping hand.
3RD & 4TH UINALS
In the harvest cycle of the Tzolk’in the 3rd uinal began the Movement of New Life. We emerged into the Light. Our leaves looked like all first leaves. We’re still a tender shoot discovering our Self. In the 4th uinal of stability, we’ll take on the leaves that we can recognize. We’ll begin to see what we could grow up to be.
PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance
- 6 Flint/ETZNAB – will establish the Rhythm and Pattern of moving with the Flow of Divine Truth.
- 7 Storm/CAUAC – will offer a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit through a magnetic Power that calls us home to the realm of Light.
- 8 Sun/AHAU – a direct Illumination from Above will reveal the Truth of our Divine Justice in Communion with the Light.
- 9 Crocodile/IMIX – will complete our Transformation, turning Faith into Believing in the Miracles possible by a Supreme Creator.
COMPLETING THE FIRST SEASON
Our Ascension from the Reed/BEN trecena completes the first Season of the Tzolk’in on 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN. The last day of the cycle is the Guardian. The Ending defined from the Beginning is the Quickening of our Spirit, the Will for Love To Be. In Unity with the Creator we will realize Higher Gifts of Spirit.
Reed/BEN is a day to Bless or Repair the Home. The Maya acknowledge the extended family observing it as a day to check in on the neighbors. Reed/BEN’s guiding Light is a demonstration of belonging. Taking on the responsibilities of a family, BEN guides the way to walk the walk to an altar. BEN inspires the Mission of the Deer, guiding us to build an altar of Light for Home and Family.
BEN holds very High Expectations. To manifest their Light on Earth, BEN must hold itself accountable to its own Faith in Answered Prayers. BEN creates the Light by creating an altar where Love is always waiting as the experience. BEN doesn’t force a Way, but demonstrates the Power of having a way.
To receive the Divine Light through the channels above the altar, Reed/BEN guides us to be the “hollow bone.” Kneeling in humility, human thoughts are burned away. No One ever knows the path that will lead another to their Divine Destiny. We’re supposed to Love our Way. And our Highest Hope is that the next generation will find a way they Love, watching how we are changed by the Light.
BEN holds the Element of Fire to uphold the Passion in our Heart. BEN can guide the Divine Inspiration to change us from one perspective to another. Reed/BEN inspires a Sanctuary on Earth, where we can walk the “hard road” below, always in Divine Communion with the One Above.
BEN will set our Divine Mission on course. The trecena of Reed/BEN will guide us to create an altar where the Light of Unconditional Love is True in Divine Communion with the One Above.
On Tone 1, we begin in Unity. The intention is to track the thoughts of Divine Inspiration. We will be inspired to create aw life centered around the Dreams we Love. Reed/BEN guides the Dog’s way to create a pack where the whole has a Divine Place to Belong. The Lunar eclipse may contribute to a low energy day of inertia. It’s a perfect day to recover from a holiday.
Through the Element of Fire, our passions can be stirred. This is a day to allow the fire to burn within and “let it be.” There can be an impulse to take action on Tone 1, though the time is better spent allowing Time to flesh out an idea. For whatever feels hard to get done on Tones 1 and 2 can be offset by an exponential power that will move us on Tone 3.
To all my relations, may we build an altar to the One of our Highest Faith and Believing to manifest the Light of “home.” May every Divine Discernment begin in Humility of our Human limitations. May we Let Others Be where they are. If we are on a path that reaches toward the light, the Highest Light will lead us to the Truth waiting for Our Divine Time.
May we remember the way of the Mayan priest, counting the days, carrying out the rituals and prayers, and calling upon a Divine Provision for the Whole. May we count our blessings, and miracles of answered prayers. May our Heart Feel the Truth that Faith is as good as Believing.
in lak’ech, i am another you

SETTING THE ALTAR: We can initiate a new beginning from our own altar, lighting the candles and saying the prayers for a new cycle of Light. We might place something to remind us of Whole Divine Family. When we dedicate a Place a Divine Communion will hold open a portal to the Creator’s Light. There is Power at an altar where we’ve shared a Divine Communion and felt the Vibration of Unconditional Love. May we dedicate it as the place we Intend to go to bring Harmony to the Whole.

1 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
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.
