8 Reed / BEN – A Transition of Life and Death: Day 8 of 13

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Is it a Sunrise or a Sunset? As it was in the beginning, so it is in the end. The only way to be sure is by knowing the Time or the Place.

8 Reed / BEN

September 13, 2022 (09/13/2022)
8 Reed/BEN, Destiny Kin 73

Reed/BEN holds position 13 and September 13 holds another to magnify the Truth of Answered Prayers. 13 is the symbol of theurgy, the power given to Human, through ritual and sacred ceremony, to call upon Divine Agency to intervene in the Below.

The glyph illustrates an altar with 2 channels of Light that descend from Above. Below are the 2 prayer matts for one to kneel with the other in Divine Trinity. Reed symbolizes the “hollow bone.” Through the Element of Fire, the flesh is burned away for the Light of the One to shine through.

A Divine Creator ordered all things in the Balance. The Universe is held in place by a Law of Polarity. The extremes lie at either end of the scale. When we know one extreme, we’re bound to know the other. To be centered in life, we have to reach for the middle. By the Maya’s count of Time, Sun/AHAU, the symbol of the Supreme Lord of Creation, is was defined by the zero. We know Peace in the Center within.


Symbol of the Rune: Algiz  -The Sage that knows the Highest Meaning and Purpose of our Life – to Save another. (The Mission of the Deer/MANIK and the Tree of Life)

The endorphin rush of happiness to the extreme is an altered state of consciousness. Our body recovers its equilibrium by reaching the opposite end of the scale. That’s one way to know the future. The Human Ego’s way of avoiding the alternative is to keep reaching for the highest extremes. We were created to live in Harmony and Equity. Human Beings are not able to sustain the extremes of one way or another. The Creator’s final Word was written in our Divine Design.

Perpetual motion is Mother Earth’s way of maintaining balance. We have to follow the Divine Feminine way of Discernment and Compassionate Love to maintain the Balance of Life, Love, and Happiness. To maintain the experience we have to take no more than we’re willing to Give Back or Pay Forward. Through the Offering, we are Atoned with the One who was intended to be at the center of all things. Offering/MULUC symbolizes the Sacred Exchange.

Reed/BEN is the altar, the place we are directed to go to know the Peace of Unity. Tone 8 is the symbol of Divine Justice. 8 Reed/BEN exalted the Truth in the zenith hour of Light (Tone 7). It’s clear to see from “all that is” and “all that is not” that the Human Ego has led us to a world out of balance. The Creator has the final word. This Tzolk’in round Human Time is synced with Earth’s calendar to raise the Truth during the Season of Harvest, and the order of Time by the Haab calendar that marks the annual event of the Day of Judgement by the Jewish calendar. Mother Earth’s Time reflects human’s experience on a planetary scale.

One thing we’ve witnessed as a whole is a major event of Life and Death, and a changing of the guard from a Queen to a King. We’ve also witnessed the Truth that there not enough Princes to go around. Some were born to eat off golden platters, while others face the prospect of a very harsh winter. Some lives are celebrated by processions, while children are abandoned to die alone in the desert. Justice is the Common thought and a Truth that speaks for itself. Divine Justice serves the Happiness of the Whole. Personal Justice can never be the answer. Though, Justice can only be carried out as a personal responsibility.

We’re not facing the Truth of “all that is” if we expect another Human Being to return our Life to the Balance. It’s an inside job that has to start in the lower place, one by one. It’s Time to give to the nth degree on behalf of the Whole. The only way we find the passion to carry out the Divine Work of Love is kneeling at an altar to the Highest One. By a Divine Order of Time, 11 Deer/MANIK is the Truth and the Way, the symbol of the Mayan priest who is dedicated to a path that leads us to the altar. Tone 11 reflects the Highest Truth of the Creator, and the Wake-up Call to see it’s Time to fall on our knees.

The Truth is also seen from Above, as planets that followed one another across the sky have turned retrograde. If you’ve been following the astrology, the forecast calls for our Highest Faith and most Vigilant Practice during a time when we’re unlikely to see experiences begin or end the way we’ve come to expect in the past. We created a world of chaos, and that’s what we can expect until we are drawn back into balance again. That’s what is reflected by the Truth of those who exact personal justice to their own death in the end.

I wonder if you are experiencing the Time that I’ve seen lately. The experience of one day has been the extreme opposite of the next. Faith in the Highest One has been the only way to balance the bitter and the sweet. Deer/MANIK is the aspect of a Divine Creator who shares the Spiritual Tools to make our way in the world below. Tone 11 is the Highest Truth, and the Deer’s gift of Vigilant Consciousness is the only way.

The Year 2022 symbolizes a Time to live by the 2’s. We can unite 2 days as one. To Know the Divine Truth in the Balance, we can live 2 by 2. That was Noah’s way to save the Whole. We all need “another one” to help us get through. Where 2 are united as 1, we hold the exponential power to know the Dreams we hold together are meant to come true. We can’t expect our Spiritual partner to come knocking at our door. We have to take the first step.

The Mayan priest, when we dedicate our own path to an alter and make and Give Back to another One, a Divine other One will see our prayer and somewhere, we’ll meet at an altar where we were kneeling together in the Common prayer. Our only hope together is kneeling in the Light of the One.

This Harvest’s Dream began 9 months ago in December. Look back across Time to remembering where you were then. If your experience has been anything like mine, the “hard road” led to the Light and the Passion to hold faith in Time and Truth that speaks for itself. The Harvest is a time to choose the best seed for the dreamtime of Winter to rise in the Spring.

I’m grateful you are there as the living proof that we’re not alone. If you passed this way, I know we’re kneeling together. And, there is no distance between one heart and another.

love, in lak’ech,


I’m grateful there is always a Divine Reason for Time we knew before, for the Creation of Love that will be in our future. I’m grateful that True Love never ends.


The Sign nine months ago was a White Christmas. That was a life passed away, 2,000 miles from where I am today. Nothing is the same. The Truth is bittersweet.

Unexpected beauty overnight…

8 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)

Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eights carefully weighs all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement ‘as above, so below,’ from simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation, some eights are ‘neat freaks.’

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.
