13 REED/BEN REPOSTED FROM THE LAST ROUND: “BEFORE”
February 10, 2021
THE TRECENA OF CROCODILE/IMIX: Beginning a New Harvest of Creation
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 13 is the Day of Ascension. 13 is the number of theurgy, the Power through Ritual and Ceremony to call on a Divine Intervention in Human affairs. 13 symbolizes the 7th day of (6 nights and 7 days) Creation. Ascension is an Answered Prayer, a Force of Divine Intervention.
The Primordial Mother, IMIX, guided us to the Consciousness of Compassionate Love and a Divine Discernment of the Truth. We were all born with the Light to see beyond our Human Nature to our most Divine Reason To Be. We’ve seen how much beauty was shared through the Offering of Mother Earth. And, we were led to the Highest Truth that the Beauty was shared by a Divine Consciousness of Love that intended the Blessing to be shared in Harmony and Equity.
From the Beauty of Love, and all the ways we are given to Know it and Feel it, our Truth was elevated to the Genius that is held by a Hand of Divine Authority. Believing in a Power greater than our Self, we’re given the Faith to believe there is always a Divine Way for the Provision of Love and Beauty to be for everyone. We did learn that our Joy is never complete, if we’re the Only One.
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home. The glyph illustrates an altar with two channels of Light descending from Above, and two prayer mats below, where Human kneels in Humility to the Highest Light. Reed/BEN holds very High Expectations for it’s own Faith in Answered Prayers. BEN shares the Wisdom that we are intended to hold High Expectations without imposing Our Way on those placed under our direct care within our closest sphere of influence.
We ascend with Reed/BEN’s Wisdom, the same conviction we feel to “walk the walk” when we become the leader of a family. We are given a Divine Reason to Ascend to our Highest Faith, for the Whole. Children will see the Truth by what we do and not by what we say. Our most Divine Truth is an Almighty Creator of Unconditional Love. How could we ever demonstrate that Truth, placing our own Conditions on the way to carry it out? BEN comes with the guidance to Bend like a garden hose, rather than lead with a “steel pipe.” One pours out the Blessings of Unconditional Love, the other hurts to even think about it. Being a Light for Home is a grave responsibility with long-reaching effects on the burden of Human’s Time.
Number 131313: Reed’s Position 13, the Tone 13, and today’s date, May 26 (resolved to 13 as 5+2+6) reflect a Master Number 131313. 13 is the Highest Promise of Answered Prayers. 13 symbolizes the Power of Theurgy, a Gift through ritual and sacred ceremony to call on a Divine Agency to Intervene in Human affairs. Twehrough the prayers that incorporate Movement, we expand the Influence of our Spiritual Intentions. Humans create the “highest waves” of Vibration when our body is put into motion for a Divine Purpose. Movement generates the Heat and the Energy that emanates the Light of our Spirit. Above, the Creator holds the Power through a single breath. Below, we hold the Power and Forces of physicality to Move Heaven and Earth. 13 is the number of the Ascended Masters, and the Unseen Power of Divine Intervention. “Number 1313 represents expansion on all levels, including optimism, enthusiasm, communication, and creativity. 1313 indicates that the Ascended Masters are working with you on your thought processes to enable you to make the highest and wisest choices. Be prepared to expand and develop your personal spirituality in new and exciting ways and look for opportunities to creatively express yourself from the heart. Use your natural interests, talents and personality to bring joy and upliftment to others.” [Sacred Scribes]
Most often our deepest wounds of injustice were inflicted during our years of innocence, when we were disadvantaged by the inequity of our innocence and personal power. Though, it is balanced by the Wisdom that still holds the Highest Hopes and Dreams, and the Highest Faith in our Love, in spite of Human limitations. Children hold the most pure Wisdom from the start. We’re better off when we intend to learn from them. Uncle “Bear Heart” described the path of the shaman as it was taught to the children in his book, “The Wind is My Mother.” He described the ways the Elders drew them out and encouraged their own perspective and point of view as important. Children were encouraged to express what THEY conceived as the Truth. The first Light we could shine to the children is our Faith in New and Higher Ways they will bring Light to the world. Their future will be brighter than our own. It’s an Offering for their Faith to Believe in their own Divine Meaning and Purpose To Be.
Reed/BEN is Human’s “Mission Impossible” to carry out perfectly in a Divine Way. Children will always be torn between the mixed messages, when we have to say, “No, you can’t” and “Yes, you CAN.” Leaning into the Truth for the Way, we have to turn to our own Faith in a Higher Power Above. Our best “faith in action” is to Believe in our Own Prayers. Through Compassionate Love, we’ve learned the Prayers holding the greatest Power are the ones shared from our Heart, calling upon a Divine Agency on behalf of the Whole.
The Primordial Mother, IMIX, shared our Feelings from our conception, before we held any wisdom of an experience. She saw the “Mission Impossible” that is the Miracle of Human germination that will awaken as a Divine Inheritance of Higher Wisdom. A Primordial Mother’s first vision of us was Flesh and Blood. The living Human Being of physicality was the 1st Priority. The 1st Duty was to inspire a Reason to Survive. The pains of birth are veiled memories for both the Mother and the Child. We shared the contractions and Willed for Life to be as we were pushed out of a Sanctuary of Divine Order. My Mother once said, we were pushed out into the cold hard world. We lost everything, exposed to whole new elements with the thinnest of skin. Human is Sacred to the Creator for the sacrifice of Feeling everything that would be necessary to learn a whole new way of living, all at once from the very start.
The Legend of our New Life begins with 2 that share the Heart of One. Beyond all Human Understanding, a bond was created that can never be broken, no matter how hard some may try to run away from the feelings. Beyond the veil we shared a “Mission Impossible” then, that would manifest a Dream that someday, we could See and Acknowledge that same truth about one another again.
For a Human Mother, if you weren’t broken before, you’ll be broken after. The injustices of childhood are inflicted “buried feelings.” If we fear our limitations are greater than the task, we can’t bear to know how it really feels. Earth is the Divine Mother who holds the Fire of Compassionate Love that eternally burns for us as the “object of her affection. “She keeps turning to uphold our Dreams in the Light. Earth is the Holy Ground that nourishes ALL Life, a Living altar with Open Arms. She is the Mother of Harmony and Equity that lays her Love at our feet.
BEN resides in the East, the direction of our Divine Inspiration, and the Light for every New Beginning. Holding the Element of Fire, a New Human Seed is ignited by a Passion To Be.
BEN is observed as a Day to ask for a Blessing of Home and Family. The Maya extend the blessing by checking in on their neighbors. Caring for one another is a demonstration of belonging. Ben holds the power to lead others to find their own path to the Light.
Ascension is a new Discernment of Higher Wisdom. IMIX guided us to see that our Highest Happiness is dependent on the Happiness of the Whole. When we Awaken to the most Beautiful possibilities we’ve seen before, Love Overflows and it’s not enough to be the Only One who Knows the Blessing.
To all my relations, may we turn to our own Faith to Believe for the Whole. Our “right way” is the Only Way for us, and so must each one find their “Only Way.” More than “which way” Compassionate Love reaches the Higher Ground of Love, “Exactly, the Way You Are.”
May we give thanks for the Light that a Primordial Mother awakened in our Heart, so we could Face the Light of our Dreams. We can face the darkness of our Unknown Journey to the Future, remembering that there is always One, in Every Time and Place, who knows exactly how we Feel. She knows our Unlimited Possibility and will always hold that Truth in her heart for us to Feel too.
May we Remember the one that always keeps moving for us so we are never left in the darkness, but always carried toward the Light of the Brightest One who Knows the Divine Beauty that we will be.
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.

My gift for a New Tzolk’in Round…
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Crocodile/IMIX trecena.
My gift for this Tzolk’in round is linked there, a Tzolk’in Field Guide that has as much about the basic aspects of each day as I could think to put into it. The directions and the elements are aspects of Universal Laws that can be known in MANY ways, through many kinds of practice. My aim with the dates for each trecena, included for the next few years, was an intention that we could have everything for a day in one place at hand, if we didn’t have a computer.
How have you changed? What do you want to do?
I love to hear from you. It’s interesting to hear how we all experience the energy in different ways. We all have something to share that can help us remember and SEE if it’s happening the same with us too!
