9 Reed/BEN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Our common thought when we “finish” a creation is to stand back to see the big picture. Beyond all imagination, God can turn our worst fears into our Life’s greatest blessing.

The Peak Tone 9 “finishes” a Transformation. The Time comes with a warning that there could be suffering to bear for lack of Divine Insight. We have to stand back for ALL our creations of both darkness and light.  Either way, we’re blessed  by the truth that we made the whole investment (9) that manifests the Truth of the Higher One (10).

9 is the symbol of 3 x 3 – a Divine Trinity Above and Below, with the “x” being the exponential factor of God’s Divine Justice of Love. Number 9 “finishes” a work of Divine Creation. A Divine Hand moves us to an altar to Count our Blessings that never end.

Reed/BEN is the guiding Light for Family and Home. Reed is the “hollow bone.” The Element of Fire burns the flesh away to create a channel for the Communion of Divine Spirit. We don’t have to press our Truth on the children for them to find their way. All they need to know is the Truth of Answered Prayers for God’s Hand to draw them there by the Truth of their own experience. We’re all on the same journey, but in our own Time and our own Place. Wrong or right, if we make choices on Our Truth of Today, the answer will come when it’s our most Divine Time to know.

The paradigm shift offered by Venus was given to turn to the symbol of Diving Timing. The Creator knows what he’s doing. The best Choice is to keep our  human hands off every Human’s Dream to know we’re always enough as who we are in any moment, when we’re trying to Love.

We leave an old life behind when we create a family. The hardest turn in the road is to let them Live and make choices for their own happiness. Reed/BEN shares the strength to “walk the talk.”

Reed/BEN is the demonstration of the Golden Rule. BEN holds very high expectations for family that is a “hard road” in the whole experience of Life. We can succeed when we apply  those highest expectations to our Self and Remember our own Life has a Higher Meaning and Purpose before we reach the end.

To truly Love our Self, we have to let go to be free of the expectations both sides impose on one another. We’re ALL Human, afterall.


BEN ignites the flames of Passion to believe in the Holy, Holy, Holy who always loves us the way we are, and keep on making choices to reach our own highest end. Residing in the East, BEN reminds us of our Divine Future, so we won’t let go of the Dreams we knew before. We all need to know we were capable to create the end of our Heart’s Desire.

Reed/BEN is the place given to  love two different ones Above, and Below. Differences allow us to create more than one way to an end.

The Maya observe Reed/BEN as a day to offer a Blessing to the Home. The tradition extends to neighbors in the community. BEN is a day of community service, to check in “like family” to lend a helping hand. It’s good for the children to see the Golden Rule applied to everyone the same. As a whole we are all children of a Family Below and a Family Above. A Divine Family is the one that lets us be who we choose to be, the best we can see. We deserve to know what we can create with the Higher One by our side.

Family was meant to be the Home where we can “be our self” and be loved for who we are. When we belong to a Circle of Love, we create the ties that bind the Love from one generation to the next for ALL Time.

Today we can See and Acknowledge parents and guardians that lived for us and carried out their duty to raise us to maturity. We all fail one another. Some worse than others, but the  offering is the same

In the Wisdom of our Innocence we Loved our own Life, everything we learned that we could do, see, and imagine. We only wanted someone to witness the Truth of our own Light within. Reed/BEN is the altar where we will remember there WAS One Divine One that saw our first smile, our first step, and EVERY accomplishment – One that would  claim us as its own Highest Creation… the First, the Best, the One and Only, Highest Object of Affection.

To all my relations, may we kneel in Humility to the One who promised to Answer every Prayer for Love. May we call upon the Highest Light to change us so that we might be “the family we never had” for someone else who is suffering in the darkness. May we disappear in the Light from Above to Witness the Light in the “other” that longs as we do to Feel it Too.

May we See and Acknowledge that Only the Highest One knows the Love every Human heart dreams of Knowing is the Truth. May we give thanks to a Divine Agency Above that can share the Love that’s ALWAYS True in Every Time and Place.

in lak’ech, i am another you

9 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)

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.

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.
