3 Reed / BEN – Dawning of Creation: Day 3 of 13



3 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. Life is created on Tone 3 by taking a real step toward our Dream, or by disseminating the Truth of our Intention. The 2 Divine Steps as 1 are for the 2 in 1. For Human we take action so we can see progress from the beginning. For our Soul, we reach to the Higher One for the strength to move. I already got it backwards. Our Soul comes first.

We hold a Divine Opportunity to give Life to our Intention on the Tone marked by the symbol of Divine Trinity. Our first movement will strike the Chord of Intention. Every Conscious Choice brings Life to a Creation in Human’s Mind, and manifests a Vibration in the Universe that can be Felt by the One  and the Whole. The note we strike depends on the Beauty of our Intention.

The Deer/MANIK taught us the way of Beauty is Vigilant Consciousness, like the Mayan priest. Today is a very important day to pay attention to the Reasons for our Choices, and the ends we carry out in the direction toward our Dream. It doesn’t have to be a huge step. The Universe is waiting for our command. We’re only trying to push a few atoms suspended in  mid-air in the general direction of our Dream. We’re living for the Life of Spirit that lives beyond the realm of physicality.

Just like a piano, the note we strike at the beginning will carry on to its end. Today Human holds the Will and the Way. Our Choice is equal to the Power of the Higher, and Higher One, as illustrated by the dots. That’s the us, the 2 in 1 in the center.

Reed/BEN is the guiding Light for Family and Home. Ben is the essence of who we become when we are in charge of a family. Our primary interest is the children. In the 3rd Season  of the Tzolk’in, we are growing a family. We can feel it’s Time to walk our walk. We have to change something to find our Peace of Mind and to face the responsibility of Creation.

We can find our Peace in BEN. There are 2 reflections of Ben. The great side of BEN is seen through the eyes of the children, the shoes they reach to fill. The heavy side of BEN is the “steel pipe.” That’s the responsibility conceived by Human’s mind of reason. “We have to teach the children the Truth.” We’re always better off knowing we don’t  know it, but we will. The Reed is a symbol of the “hollow bone.” The flesh has to be burned away for the Light to shine through to the depths of our being. In the 7th uinal we are being changed to the very core. The Fire burns.


Symbols in the stars are sharing the “Ring of Fire Eclipse” in Gemini, eclipsing 2 sides of who we are in Perfect Alignment. The first half of the core days was a journey of darkness. We found the Human Will to climb our Way to our own Higher Ground. Where we reached our limit, the Power and Authority of Divine Justice is changing Hands. The Light we carried through the darkness our own way, is being prepared to see our own Divine Justice for Love. We are finally more than half-way through. (Remember, the core days that go on forever in the primordial soup? When the Hand given the Power of Divine Agency reaches in, Beauty is what we’ll grasp to Have and Hold. The end in sight is 10 Sun/AHAU, a manifestation of Light that is the Revelation of Being. We don’t have to learn the “hard lessons” of Life forever. Only long enough to “know how it feels.”

The 7th Uinal of Balance

As the “hollow bone” we don’t make Choices for anyone else. We create the world so the children can see and walk their walk in their own shoes. BEN’s gift to share is Believing in the Power of Prayers to share the Truth of everything with One and the Whole, they way THEY need to know it by their own experience. As the “hollow bone” in the primordial soup, we see all the choices we’d change. Children are the Hope of our Future. Our most Divine Demonstration will be an Expression of Love that believes for them that they will know a BETTER way. We see the “little me.” The only thing we were looking to see from Mom and Dad was a Truth of Love. That was how we knew we were “enough” when we couldn’t do anything. Love was all we had to repay the one with the duty to help us survive. The Wisdom of Innocence is “Pure Love.”

Holding the element of Fire, BEN can light a Fire in us that burns. Like a “human responsibility” we don’t want to face, it burns hotter the longer we wait. Every breath we draw a thought to it, fuels the fire. The Altar is the Place to Be. Reed/BEN resides in position 13. At an altar we remember the Truth of Answered Prayers. 3 Reed/BEN is Kin number 133. (The “33 days to actualization” prediction I made from 1 Road/EB is 4 days off. Or maybe it just took 4 days to turn around to see it.) Reed/BEN’s 3 holds the Trinity in the lower place, all across the row.

We Remember the Truth we Know at an altar turning to the One that always and Only sees the Best in us. In Humility, Counting our Blessings, we remember the One who Loves and Understands how hard the Human Choice to Live can be. It means we have to strike out on our own to ever Live in Harmony and Equity with the Whole.

On days led by BEN, the Maya uphold a tradition to check in on the neighbors. It’s the visible walk of Harmony that the children need to see as the Way of Truth. We need to see it too. If we are the “hollow bone” the children can lead Our Divine way.

To all my relations, may we make a Choice To Be. We’re in the bone-growing phase of our Conscious Development. May we test our weight to stand on the Truth we reach to Create to take One Small Step. May we press on with the responsibility and the burden – TO CHOOSE WHAT WE LOVE. 🙂

We  have a Monkey along for the laughs and the Divine Genius for Creation. Why is EVERYTHING a matter of “life or death?” It’s only another Choice! (The Monkey and the Raccoon are having a laugh together. The Raccoon says, “You didn’t mention the Time.” (hehe) Oh yeah. WE CAN DO THAT.

Time caught up to me. I was spread thin and took another bite of the same sandwich. I’m paying for it now. I didn’t think before I chose. Let the Fires burn til the work is done, so I will never do it again. We are more important than ALL the Human rules of survival. We are setting the Tone for the Choices we will make til this Dream of Life is over, at least to the end of the climb. Something is dying while something new is being born. We have the all-in-one Love of every Day Sign in the soup with us. CIMI is in here somewhere, holding our hand. A Divine Hand is all we need to pull out our Dream from beyond the veil.

May we see the veil as the net with the holes in and we can see through, like the a dividing line between fields of play. May we set the Tone with One Choice we would Love to make a hard and fast Choice for our Self, with all the Time we need to know it’s our Choice from now on.

May we turn to the altar 1st, to set the Tone of our priorities. May we Love and listen to what we need for our Self today. A hand from beyond the veil has bailed us out before. May we turn to the One to bail us out together into the Life of our Dreams. May we do as we say, and think before we say.

in lak’ech, i am another  you

Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN

I’m grateful for the Hand Above and a Higher One that rejoices at every 1st step Human chooses toward a Divine Life. The One knows there are Divine Truths and Experiences of Love along our way. I’m grateful for an eclipse that turns our consciousness Above and Below to the Light of Life, Love, and Happiness – and a dream made possible by a Divine Design written in the stars and in the everyday.

SYNCHRONICITY OF TIME: I realize this eclipse marks another day in Time when I bore the consequences of a very big choice. Can you remember a Time before when you didn’t choose wisely? Can you see the reason why it didn’t turn out for the best? What were the pillars you claimed as the Faith to stand? Those are the questions I’m asking myself today. And, I do know why I chose something I didn’t Love, to go along with an idea of the way things were supposed to be. Someone else’s truth can never do. We had to make the Choice to Know. It is worth knowing by any means. When we see the same Truth again, we’ll give thanks that the Fire was put out when the Human matter was burned away. Somehow we arrived here with the veil over our eyes. May we give thanks to the Sun for a New Light of Day, and a Reason to face the Truth before we make a Choice. The Sun falls with Pluto as Day turns to Night. “Pluto is the great revealer, but often there’s a dark night before the rebirth. Pluto brings to mind purging, exorcising, and releasing buried power or core truths. It’s the planet of creative destruction, and transits can feel like extended ordeals.” May we find go to the place where Love Stands as the Reason forever.

3 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)

Galactic Tone 3: Action. Three is basic movement and communication, which begins as a vibration. Three energy is very eloquent in all types of self-expression. Communication is how Three establishes a point of agreement between any point “A” and any point “B”. Three persons are rhythmic to the core and are often restless, as motion is their nature. By working closely with the energy of Three, any person becomes more able to predict motions of all kinds.

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: 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.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. 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.
