4 Reed / BEN – A Journey to Love: Day 4 of 13


4 Reed/BEN, Destiny Kin 173
December 22, 2022, 12/22/2022

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Master Number 22:
The number 22 symbolizes Human’s Power to manifest our Highest Dreams of Divine Inspiration. The power is magnified by every repetition. 12/22/2022 reflects the Master Number 222222. The key to the Divine Path is Master Number 11, reflecting the Highest Source of Inspiration from the One Above. The Northern count of the Haab offers the Year Bearer, 11 Deer/MANIK, the nahaul of Vigilant Consciousness that carries out a Mission of Love on behalf of the Whole. The glyph for Reed/BEN reflects the 11 as the two channels of Light and as the Reed, the “hollow bone” that connects us to a channel of Spirit. Combining 11 and 22, we hold the means and the way to create the Master Number 33, a symbol of Actualization, a number related to the Scion, and also a Divine Degree of latitude that marks the ley lines of Divine Power on Earth. The Creator’s Highest Inspiration is all of the Above, as the Word, a Promise, and a Dream of Divine Love. Led by the Dog in position 10, and his pal Monkey/CHUEN, in position 11, we are offered Divine Signs and Symbols to mark our Journey to Love. There are enough Master Number 11’s to hold faith for a Divine Wakeup Call, and a Code of Activation by the Highest One Above to reach our Highest End.

4 Reed / BEN

Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Home and Family that raises the Children as our Highest Object of Affection. The Wisdom of their Innocence teaches us the way to rise to our highest occasion, to walk the walk, and to apply the Highest Truth we’ve learned by our own experience.

Tone 4 conveys the Intention of Stability. In the 4th Hour of Light, the Maya surveyed the field of corn to conceive a strategy and an approach for the work of the day. That’s about the time we arrive at work and survey our desk or the workbench to set our priorities for the day, imagining our Highest End.

There’s no better place to start the Journey of our Road to Destiny than humbling our self at an altar. When we do, we Remember to bring the Offering of our Gratitude and we Receive the Atonement of Love to remember the Promise of Answered Prayers. Reed/BEN holds position 13, the symbol of theurgy – the power we were given through  our rituals and sacred ceremonies to call upon the Power of Divine Agency to Intervene in human affairs. We manifest the 3’s through the motions of a Divine Trinity Below, calling upon the Divine Trinity Above.


The Power we find at an altar doesn’t lie in the form, but in the function as a place where we Invest our Time and Attention to Remember. Our Unconscious thoughts associate the Truth behind the scenes with every repetition. When we begin by counting our blessings, we recount the experiences of our own Answered Prayers.

The Reed/BEN glyph illustrates a place for 2 in the thatched prayer mats that lie below the altar. The 2 is multiplied by prayers offered by our Heart and Mind, and in the supplications for our Self and the Whole. Reed/BEN is a day to bless the Home. A tradition that is still carried out by the Maya is to check in on the neighbors on Reed/BEN. It’s a Divine demonstration for the children that can be as simple as a routine of checking in with others. When we do, we create the sense of belonging on both sides. When we belong, like family, we don’t have to invest much time to magnify a Truth of Divine Relationship. We create places where WE belong, as a door that will always be open to receive us.

Lending a Hand without expecting anything in return is the way to find our own sense of belonging.

We don’t have to “prepare to receive company” when we feel like family. We can let things be as they are. Some of my best memories with friends were in rooms crowded with clutter and tiny spaces carved out for the Divine Exchange between one and another. That’s where both sides know they are received, just as they are.

On Tone 4 we can establish stability like the “rules of the game.” 4 represents the cube, the most stable of all forms, that’s defined by its borders and parameters. We can define our own boundaries to establish a Divine Body of Thoughts. We all deserve the sovereignty of our own life and our own “business.” We don’t have to share all the details to let another one know about our feelings, our hopes, and our dreams for the day. Our greatest offering is to look for and tend to the needs of “everyday” things. Love is Seeing and Acknowledging another Human Being. We can carry it out in Humility when “being seen” isn’t our highest priority. We always leave a blessing behind when we choose the Jaguar’s way of Invisibility.

Reed/BEN holds the Element of Fire to burn the flesh from our bones. The advice for parents and leaders of the home is to pour out blessings “like a garden hose,” rather than leading with a “steel pipe.” Our highest offering is not our own Truth, but the One Divine Provision that covers every Human limitation. We are a Divine leader for the children when we demonstration that there’s a place we turn to in Faith for the Answers to our Prayers.

Right and Wrong thinking imposes the ways of the “steel pipe.” If we want the children to lead the future, we have to acknowledge how wise they are. And, we have to remember that it takes our own experience to learn our own highest ways. When the kids get into trouble, we’d be better off asking how the experience made them feel. And, LISTEN. Then we could ask, if they had to do it all over again, what would be THEIR better way.

Reed/BEN resides in the East. When we look to the place where the Sun Rises, we will always end up in the Light. We could set the “rules of the game” to listen more than we speak, and to ask to know more wisdom from another without changing or adding a thing, unless someone asks for our opinion. It never hurts to share our Faith in Answered Prayers.

Like the Deer – a symbol of stability, we can share the Truth of the 4 directions of Truth. Our greatest blessings are found where we create Right Relationship with others (South). On the Road of Life, we will always encounter the Unknown experiences that we have to “live to learn.” That’s the only way we really learn our lessons for Wisdom (North). And, if we begin in the East, asking for the Guidance from Above, we’ll remember to seek our own highest ways to carry out the Golden Rule.  The HIghest Truth is humbling our self to admit that we are all likely to fail in our first attempts. It’s an accurate discernment for life to know it’s more important to learn than it is to be “right.”

To all my relations, may we create our foundation on the Truth of Answered Prayers and humble our self at an altar each day to be guided by the Highest One Above. May we give thanks for way more than just second chances. We were given a lifetime to learn if we’re willing to see and acknowledge the Truth of us all. May we honor the wisdom of the children and share our love all around.

love, in lak’ech,

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

4 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed I’hya)

Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.

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 of their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a log of appreciation, many have a marriage or business problems because of inflexible views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.

Cherokee 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.
