MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

11 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 11 represents the Intention of Resolution that “assists every new thing to find its place.” 11 offers a Higher Vision of how our new understanding would actually fit into our lives. Tone 11 leads us to adjustments and simplicity.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign of the Altar where we Humble ourselves in Communion with the Creator. Reed is also the “guiding light for family and home.”

Tone 11 is the day the shaman climb to the highest altars.  This is a day to seek higher inspiration.

Reed/BEN illustrates an altar. Below are the prayer mats where we kneel in Humility. Above are the channels through which we draw the Light, our communion with the Creator.

A Vision Quest is a choice to “live in the realm of Spirit.” Here we get lost in our loftiest dreams. Returning to our day-to-day reality, we wonder how the two will fit together. Reed/BEN reminds us the channel is always open from our Sanctuary within.

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

4 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 4 presents our stabilizing force for Spiritual Growth. The cube is the most stable of forms, presenting the 4 dimensions of height, length, depth, and breadth. The 4 directions establish the form, parameters, and orientation. Tone 3 initiated Movement and Tone 4 gives us a sense of Direction.

The Reed is the hollow tube through which our Spirits are connected to the Divine. The glyph’s horizontal line illustrates an altar. Below are the prayer rugs where we kneel in the presence of God. Above are the channels through which we draw the Light of the Creator.

Reed/BEN is the defender of family and home. They hold the Higher Intention of bringing order, peace, and harmony to all their relations. Reed/BEN is a Day Sign of High Expectations that encourages us to live in the Integrity of our Divine Intention of Love.

10 Reed / BEN – Journey of Self Realization: Day 10 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

Greetings Kin,

10 Reed / BEN

The Seed/KAN trecena is guiding us to see the Truth of Human’s Divine Design. On Tone 10 of Manifestation we have an opportunity to claim a new Truth of who we are. We are building on the Wisdom of the Monkey/CHUEN trecena that inspired us to see the Creator in our self. Under the guidance of Seed/KAN we are transformed by an application of this Truth.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign that draws our Consciousness to Home and Family. Reed is a day to “bless and repair our home.”

The glyph illustrates and altar with it’s horizontal line. Above are the channels through we the Light of the Creator is drawn down to our Earthly experience. Below are the prayer mats where we would kneel in humility.

As we start the journey of a new year, we are reminded of the Light that is always there to guide us. In position to receive such Power we must acknowledge that the Spark within is the source of our Divinity. Our only way to carry such power is in the Humility of knowing it isn’t “of us.” We are only the vessel through which it flows.

Tone 10 allows us to see the Truth of our Transformation.  To manifest the Truth of our Power we must be able to see it to claim it for our Self. As we do a thorough housecleaning, we can see old crutches that can now be thrown away.

PORTAL DAY: This is day 8 of our 10-day journey through a Spiritual Portal that thins the veil to other dimensions. The Portal magnifies our Senses to our own Dynamic Nature. Portals are said to be times when our Senses are heightened to Spiritual Experience. A Portal magnifies the Truth of our ever-present connection to the Creator.

3 Reed / BEN – Witness to a Miracle: Day 3 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

3 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

The Monkey/CHUEN trecena is inspiring us to step into the shoes of a Divine Creator. The Tzolk’in, the calendar of Human’s transformation, reflects that seated at the center of every Human is a Spark of Unconditional Love and the Power to Create. They are seated on the calendar as Dog/OC and Monkey/CHUEN, sharing the peak position of the Tzolk’in, side-by-side. They go together. Our Power to Create is dependent on Unconditional Love, and Creation is a dynamic expression of that Love.

The purpose of this trecena is to inspire us to Create an Expression of Love. We have a Creator, the Master of all Art, guiding us to Create.

The Monkey/CHUEN trecena is a Divine Experiment. CHUEN is able to tap in to our Inspiration and Imagination.  We can set Reason aside for the time-being. We’re invited to play a game of Creation with the Monkey. The light-hearted Monkey approaches life like the game of a grand adventure. In the 7th uinal we are suspended from the structure of duality. We can observe the process free of judgement or characterization of “success” or “failure.”

9 Reed / BEN – Baptism of Spirit: Day 9 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

9 Reed/BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 9 brings the Intention of Patience to get a better perspective on the big picture. There is said to be potential for great suffering if there is lack of insight. Completion of plans or patterns of movement are all-important to 9. We’re called to look deeper into a new understanding. Tone 9 encourages us to look beyond our Self.

The “suffering” we can avoid is a potential misapplication of our own Power. Our Divine Power was meant to serve the Greater Good of the Whole. Unlimited Power holds a great responsibility in its potential corruption. It was a gift we were given to extend the Blessings of the Creator in an interest of Harmony and Equity.

Reed/BEN is a Day Sign of Divine Discernment. The glyph illustrates an altar in its horizontal line. The vertical columns above are the channels that connect Heaven and Earth, through which we hold communion with the Creator. Below are the prayer mats where Human kneels in Humility. In Humility we reside in a State of Grace as we surrender our Power under the Direction of a Divine Creator.

Reed/BEN is the Day Sign of Family and Home, and the care of our children. Reed/BEN is observed as a day to Bless and Repair our home. Reed calls for Integrity within our family, friends and community. We were Divinely Placed to provide our greatest service.

10-DAY PORTAL: Element of Ether
The Serpent/CHICCHAN trecena presents 10 Portal Days in a row (Tones 2 thru 12). Our experiences will be magnified by a thinning of the veil and an opening to other dimensions. On 9 Reed/BEN a portal magnifies our Sense of Communion with the Creator. A new Transformation can be completed as a channel is opened through which we would be guided by Divine Discernment. We learn that our Divine Authority must be representative of a Higher Authority.  A Portal magnifies the channel through which the Creator directs the use of our Power.

2 Reed / BEN – Journey to a Dream: Day 2 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

2 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 represents the energy of Duality. In the Unity of Tone 1 we were Inspired with a Dream and on Tone 2, we consider our own way to carry it out. Human’s way of understanding is through comparison. We make choices of dark or light, good or bad, left or right. We are given a choice to move forward toward a new Intention, or to stay where we are.

On Tone 2 we are separated from the Whole as we consider our own Strengths and Weaknesses. As we make a choice for a Dream “to be or not to be,” we may run into the old fears and disappointments that kept us from reaching for this dream before. We can find ourselves wishing we were just as capable as the rest.

Tone 2 is an important day for Divine Discernment. Our Lower Self can present us with the fear of an illusion. Our job is not to react to our fear, but turn to the Creator who holds the Supreme Power of Creation.

Reed/BEN guides us to Kneel in Humility at an altar within. The glyph illustrates a horizontal line as the altar. Below are the prayer mats where we kneel, and above are the channels through which we can draw down the Light of the Creator. We are called to turn to a Divine Authority to help us make a choice.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
Portal Days present a thinning of the veil where we are more capable to experience our Supernatural Gifts of Spirit and our connection to the Creator. 2 Reed/BEN will magnify our Sense of Divine Discernment. As we choose the Dream that would lead us on the Road to our Destiny, we are given a sense of Knowing that we are led under the direction of a Divine Authority.

8 Reed / BEN – Delivery of Newborn Spirit: Day 8 of 13

MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL

8 Reed / BEN

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 8 a new Transformation begins with the help of Divine Agency. 8 is the number of Pure Spirit. Our energy shifts from an upward climb to a downward descent where Unseen Forces will draw us forward to a new Change within our Self.

Reed/BEN guided our last trecena that raised us to see our place in a Divine Family. We were inspired to see our Home that lies within as the place of Sanctuary we can always turn to. This is the place we can draw down the Light of the Creator. We are given the Authority over darkness when we kneel before the altar in Humility.

The Transformation of the trecena of CIMI, will be manifested from an effort and Intention that builds on the success of our last Ascension. Reed/BEN returns on the Holy Day of the CIMI trecena as the Higher Ground from which our Transformation will begin.

Each Tone and each Trecena lead us through a rotation of “Light” and “Dark.” Our Transformation of Consciousness is accomplished by Inspiration (Light) and Application (Dark). Red and Blue Day Signs bring the New Light of Inspiration. We are inspired once again by Reed/BEN to see how the Sanctuary we built within will be the Guiding Light for CIMI’s Transformation of a Major Life Change.
