MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
A New Truth comes together on Tone 12 of Understanding. Tone 12’s Gift of Retrospection is magnified as the final Tone 12, in the 12th Uinal – holding a Higher Intention of Understanding. Today we can be drawn to an awareness that would help us to discern a Higher Truth of Divine Understanding.
Reed/BEN draws us to the Altar where we find a Communion of Spirit for a Higher Level of Consciousness. This is the day when a New Truth sinks in, like the last scene of a movie that brings the story to a resolution.
We are about to learn the Truth the Wind/IK trecena has been guiding us to see. Today our understanding is resolved through the power of retrospection.
Wind/IK is the trecena of Creation. Tone 12 presents the “final scene” of this trecena. We’ve learned that every Creation is first conceived by Spirit. Our Greatest Truth is that we Create a Living Thing. Our Creation can influence its own perfect place and perfect time.
Our Creation must go through its own stages of development. We can become discouraged when we don’t see the results we expected. We all have dreams that were never realized because we were attached to when, where, and how it should all come together. As Co-Creators in partnership with our Creation, we can surrender our Lower Self to a Divine Way of Communication.
The Reed/BEN glyph symbolizes an altar as the Place for our Communion with Spirit. The vertical lines below are the prayer rugs where we kneel before the horizontal line of the altar. Above, the vertical shafts represent the channel through which we are in Communion with Holy Spirit. The lines don’t reach all the way down to the altar. As Humans, we have yet to experience the Fullness of a Holy Communion. By restoring the Balance of our Lower and Higher Self, we can share our Love in the Purity of it’s Light when we present ourselves in a position of Humility.
Reed/BEN is the Day Sign that turns our Hearts toward Home. BEN is the Day Sign of Family. We are capable through retrospection to see our Place as the Children of God. Just as we pass on the Seed of who we are to a new generation, so did the Creator create us from a Seed of Itself. We were created as Heirs with the Power to be Creators.
Family is the place where we are called to demonstrate our Highest Choice to be One with the Creator. Our family represents the place where we can either do the greatest good, or the greatest harm. The Faith and Hope we share within the family becomes the Seed of Faith for the next generation. The Love that is Shared in our closest sphere of influence, offers the greatest Hope for Humanity.
Today we are being made a channel through which a Communion with Divine Spirit may flow. The Wind/IK trecena has amplified the Breath of Spirit and the Breath of Life. We can see how our ability to Hear the Voice of our Divine Agency, provides the Way to Discern our Divine Transformation, by being that Light in the Darkness that will always show the Way.
To all my relations, may we look back to our own Experience and the Process of our Spiritual Growth. May we recognize that the Creator is an Ever-Present Channel through which will always lead us in a direction of Love. This is said to be a day to “repair our home.” May this be a day that we share our authenticity with those we Love, setting things right wherever there is a misunderstanding of our Love. May we remember to share our Love from the perspective our our Higher Self. When a Mother yells for the children to get out of the street, she is saying, “I Love you, and I don’t want anything to happen to you.” May we learn how to speak our Love in the Highest Way. May we elevate the ways we say our “I Love You’s” and seek to resolve the “misunderstandings” of our Lower Expressions of Love. May we reflect on the Channel of Love that we are, so that our Love is seen in its Purest Form of Light. May we see that the open and clear declaration of our Love is always a Voice of Love that will be heard and understood as a source of guidance, more clearly than any warning bell of “right” or “wrong.” Through a channel to the Voice of the Creator, may we Understand the lasting Power of a Direct Declaration of our Love. May we say the words that need to be said, to dispel any misunderstanding of our Unconditional Love.
in lak’ech, i am another you

12 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/ I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
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.
