THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN, A GUIDING LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 9 completes a Transformation through the Intention of Patience to see the bigger picture. There is a warning of suffering to bear for lack of insight, if we skip this important step of Creation. Our Transformation depends on always reaching toward the next Higher Truth. If we were physically climbing a pyramid, we’d be clinging to the next higher step to hold our balance on the one below.
Number 9 is the symbol of the Holy, Holy, Holy, a Trinity times 3, the highest exponential value that is manifested by the Trinity Below and the Trinity Above. Through the Offering of our Time to step back to see the whole experience, our next Higher Truth will be the Highest Meaning and Purpose.
Reed/BEN guided the Intention to Hold the Highest Expectations in our own way and in the Answers to our own prayers, so we could Believe in our Self and Know that we belonged as an Important member of the Whole. Reed/BEN encouraged us to Believe in a Divine Plan for our Life, and the Power of Love to carry it out.
Reed/BEN guided a transformation of Maturity. We were inspired to Create a Divine Life on behalf of the Whole. We would honor those that Loved before, and pay forward Love to those who will carry on. We create Love beyond our Time. The more Grateful we can be, the Greater our “Earth Magic” will be to make the Human Sacrifice.
Crocodile/IMIX is the Primordial Mother that knew us from our very beginning. Crocodiles are fierce protectors of their young. IMIX is the Divine Feminine and the Mother who holds the duty to raise us to maturity. IMIX shares the Divine Inspiration of Compassionate Love, and offers the Guidance for Divine Discernment. Sun/AHAU, the Omega, and the Divine Masculine, offers the Inspiration for All Possibility. IMIX inspires the Highest Manifestation through Divine Discernment of Love on behalf of the Whole.
IMIX is the Dawn of a New Awakening. Our passion is sparked by Genius, beyond our imagination.
BEGINNING THE 4TH UINAL
9 Crocodile/IMIX begins the 4th uinal of the Tzolk’in. Like the 4th Tone, 4 symbolizes Stability. We’ve completed 3 uinals, a Trinity of cycles guided by the Light of the All-in-One archetypes of a Divine Creator. We’ve grasped a Higher Truth of our Identity and a Meaning to Be. The 4th Uinal is associated with the God of the Sun and Warriors (Tonatiuh). In our harvest season, between the 4th and 5th uinal we change from a Sprout by taking on Leaves. In the journey of Transformation, we are seeing the first Signs of our Real Identity. The familiar leaves we see on much larger trees, reveal who we may be when we’ve grown to maturity.
We establish a foundation when we hold the Wisdom that “My Truth applies to me.” We are a Guiding Light for Family when we “Live and Let Live” and “To Thine Own Self Be True.”
IMIX resides in the East, the direction of the Sunrise, an ever-sacred New Beginning. Holding the Element of Fire, IMIX stirs a burning desire to Live and Be. IMIX is a very mentally active day. We share the experience of Receiving Divine Inspiration. IMIX shares wild ideas out of the blue and in random order. IMIX ignites our Dreams like a Muse, without all the details so the Creation is left to our own imagination.
IMIX can steer human emotions toward impulsive action. When we get an idea that speaks to our Heart’s Desire, we’re inclined to throw all caution to the wind. “If we don’t grasp it now, we may never get another chance.” For the Love of a Dream, IMIX can stir our “urgency of time.” All the Wisdom of our experience won’t mean a thing, if we don’t APPLY it to EVERY step of the way. When we see a Dream that comes with “I Can” – that’s when we need to think once, think twice, and Divinely think again. As soon as we put all our Faith in our Self again, we’ll take two steps back. (Urgency is ALWAYS the fear of the ego. A Guiding Light would say to sleep on it.)
IMIX is a day that the Elders cautioned to pray for Sound Mind and Wise Judgement. The Best thing we can do on IMIX is to USE our Common Sense and Wisdom. Some things that appear too good to be true, ARE too good to be true. By the same token, if things look too bad to be True, they ARE too bad to be true.
This morning I woke from a nightmare that was the accumulation of everything I’ve been wanting to get done, and for lack of energy, haven’t been able to get done. In the dream there was a reason of urgency. I was in the middle of the chaos. On one hand there was a Divine Dream that urged it to be done. On the other, the whole Dream depended on getting it done, as the chaos continued to grow out of control. I woke feeling like every resource of Power was lost somewhere in my past. “There was no way to ever make progress again. It’s all downhill now.”
Sun/AHAU raised us to the Light of Believing. IMIX knows we stand a chance to lose it all, if we can’t anchor it to a Divine Meaning and Purpose.
It was a “dark night” of the morning light. I didn’t feel well, which never helps in the middle of a pandemic. The only thing I knew to do was have a cup of chamomile tea and light the candles on my altar, burn some sage and sweetgrass, and call upon a Divine Agency – to be WILLING to see it a different way.
We were promised to always find our Light at an altar. Through a dedicated Intention to carry on, we will know we are still moving forward, doing the One Most Important thing we can Always Do. That was comforting enough Truth for me to know my discomfort was only the human emotions of fear. Fear is Never a Discernment of the Truth. No one else’s Truth will do, when we need to hear the Truth from the Highest Authority. Through a Truth of Unconditional Love, we are willing to bend to a Higher Truth. We believe the Truth “This is So” when we Know it through a channel of Light Above. As the “hollow bone” we can make the “sacrifice of feeling” all things that Human feels, as our Offering of Atonement. We can grow one Higher Truth at a time at an altar where Love is the Greatest Wisdom for all Time.
The Elders say to sit with the “fire that burns.” We want to push away feelings that hurt. Though, they will hover as an “unconscious body of thought” until we Discern the Truth. When we are present to See and Acknowledge “what is” then we can be changed by “what is the Truth.” For such a major life change, we do hold the Truth that we have not seen the end of the story.
A Divine Mother of Compassionate Love reminds us, we’re still creating our Life and there’s always Time for a Dream. On days led by IMIX our best course may be to Dream in our Mother’s arms, believing we have ALL the Time in the world for the Dream we will claim tomorrow. Today, there could be a Genius idea. IMIX is the Mother of Invention, often born of necessity. It’s said that those who follow the IMIX dreams they Love, will manifest the Creation of Divine Genius. The Divine Power of Love leads us by our Heart’s Desire.
To all my relations, may we be grateful for the Faith, Hope and Peace that we can always know when we make the trip to an altar. May we conceive a Higher Truth that our Human emotions are the least of the injustices we have to bear. As long as we know our Prayers carry on, we can Believe the Divine Answers are just a matter of time. And, this Time is Divine Too. When we “Remember in the dark” we Know we’ve found Our Way. May we give thanks for the Light of Truth we will receive today, that can Answer the Prayers of our Darkest Fears to raise our Highest Light.
May we Give Thanks that at an altar, we Know a Divine Creator will See and Acknowledge the burden of our Fears and the Divinity of our Sacrifice to Feel it, and still carry on for the Sake of Believing in the Highest Truth Above.
in lak’ech, i am another you

9 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.
Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB: Turtle Island; direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan is the Cosmic Hearth. Turtle is the Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth. The beginning of each new era, this star in Orion appears with the rising Sun, heralding the creation of a new World cycle.
