13 Reed / BEN – Ascension: Day 13



13 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 marks the Ascension to Higher Consciousness. On Tone 13 a Truth Above shines like the perfect vision of hindsight. In the Dawn of a New Awakening, we also know it’s just the Beginning. We want to try again. We want to try something brand new. We see the “possibility” of a new way of life.

Every Ascension is an Initiation of Divine Understanding. We hold Truth that was a mystery and we know what to do with it.

13 Reed/BEN is the Divine Commencement Gift, the Higher Truth wrapped up in all the Signs, Numbers, and Symbols. BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home. The answer to our 1st Prayers was a Divine Family. We are changed when we know the Circle where we belong. We know we have a place at a Divine Table. The glyph illustrates an altar. Above, are the channels of Light shining for the 2 below. Below, 2 thatched prayer mats mark the place for 2 to kneel in the Light of the Truth of Belonging – one that will always be remembered.

13 is the symbol of theurgy, a power given to Human, through ritual and sacred ceremony, to call on the Power of Divine Agency to Intervene in Human affairs. Higher than Divine Thoughts are the Movements and Sound we add to our Prayers. Sound travels slower than Light. Light can be here and gone before you’ve seen it. Vibration is FELT throughout the Universe. It’s reach depends on the Power of the Intention applied to it. 13 is the Joyful Noise we make, when Love raises us to FEEL the  EARTH beneath our Feet, and the Steps we take for Love. Life can be the Dance of a Living Prayer, each step a touch of Love given for a Reason to Love Mother Earth, and ALL the Life SHE Loves.

BEN, the Guiding Light for Family and Home, is that state-of-mind we hold when we know we’ve been left in charge, and it’s up to us to shine the way. BEN represents our Highest Hopes and Expectations for our Self. Knowing how different we are and how Truths are different, depending on the Time and Place, we are ALL working very hard on something that seems like the Most Important Truth we need to prove to our Self. The unconscious side of BEN is thinking we have to prove our Truth to everyone else. The ASCENDED Light of BEN, is seeing the Power of Believing our own Truth.


To raise our Dreams of Love to the Song, we have to become the “hollow bone.” All the flesh of the ego must be burned away for the Sound of Love to pass through. Only in Humility can we See the Light. In Humility, the Road is wide enough for the Whole to share, each weaving back and forth in their own way to manifest the fabric of the Creator’s Love.

Through the archetypes of the all-in-one, we see that the expression of Love can be seen in many ways… even through a sense of humor. We’re like stars shining inward when we try to prove we’re the best, just to prove to our Self that we are “enough.” The Highest Gift of Love is Seeing and Acknowledging the beauty of someone else. We KNOW the Songs that can draw our Hearts into Harmony.

Reed/BEN resides in the East, the direction of the Sunrise for our New Beginning. Holding the Element of Fire, BEN can forge the links for the Circle of Life.

Ian Lungold’s thoughts for Reed/BEN is “a good day to Bless the Home.” The Maya observe Reed/BEN as a day to look in on the neighbors. “Family” reached beyond home to forge the Circle of Belonging. We can think how easy it is to let someone else know “they belong.” When we treat someone “like family” we can always make quick work of the task. BECAUSE we Belong, we know the little things we’re good at that are hard for someone else. When it’s “family we love” we don’t compare our Self better for the help that we can share.

To all my relations, may we mark the place our first journey ends to remember the place we always belong. May we know the Joy of a place where we can Offer up any hope of Human perfection, knowing Love was always more than enough. May we see our Mission in a Divine Family is to shout it to the rooftops… YOU ARE ENOUGH! May we find ALL the different ways we could express the Truth.

Humans want to be perfect, though in Humility, we know Only One will ever see us that way. “Enough” is more than enough, when our “Only One” is a Divine Light always with us with the Answer to our Prayers. May we honor the Light of every Sunrise for the Time given to Grow the Truth of Love again.

in lak’ech, i am another you

13 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)

Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.

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 views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson for 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.

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.
