THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN: CREATING A SANCTUARY
1 Reed / BEN
The Next 13-Days…
Reed/BEN is the Guiding Light for Family and Home. Reed guides the creation of Harmony and Equity for all our Relations. Our Heart was called to the Highest Road, believing Love will create a Divine Way.
Reed/BEN holds the Element of Fire, a Divine Power that changes matter from one form to another. The Fire of Reed/BEN will change the “matters of Faith.” BEN holds the Intention to be a demonstration of Faith, on behalf of the children. BEN offers the Light to walk a path of personal integrity.
BEN is said to hold the Highest Expectations. BEN is the Light to believe in our own Faith and our own Prayers. BEN pours out the blessings with a “garden hose” – one that bends, instead of leading with a steel pipe. BEN’s Gift to share is to guide everyone to believe in their own prayers. BEN builds an altar in the home and the children follow.
BEN resides in the East, the Direction of Light and Inspiration for Life. The Element of Fire can burn away matters into pure energy. BEN can help us see the Substances of our Faith. The Reed represents the “hollow bone” that is the channel of Spirit between the Above and Below. To receive the Light all the flesh of the ego must be burned away.
BEN is the Guiding Light that ties the binds of Family and Belonging directly to the One Above. Every member has something Important to share. Reed/BEN reminds us how much we can learn from the children. Their Innocent Wisdom is a Guiding Light for Love.
TRECENA OF LIGHT
BEN guides a 13-day cycle of Incoming Inspiration. Holding the Element of Fire, BEN initiates a cycle of transmutation, changing the form of one thing into another. Family changes us. We take on multiple human identities as a Mother, Father, Sister, or Brother. Charity begins at Home with the Reed and extends to Chosen Family and sphere of influence. BEN can inspire us to take up a Cause. On Reed/BEN the Maya check in on their neighbors to lend a helping hand.
3RD & 4TH UINALS
In the 3rd uinal the Seed emerged into a new Life in the Light. We’re taking on the leaves of our identity. In the 4th uinal we’ll put down roots. Reed/BEN guides us to build the Sanctuary of Home, where faith can stand.
THE HAAB CALENDAR: THE WAYEB
The Haab calendar includes 19 months, 18 months of 20 days (numbered 0-19), and one month of 5 days (0-4), the last month of the year. The New Year is based on a zenithal Sun, accounting for different counts in the Northern and Southern hemisphere (as well as other regions). The 5 days of the Wayeb are known as the “nameless days.” This year the Wayeb begins on March 26, 2021 (5 Earth/CABAN, a day we know who we are, and Feel the clarion call to Live with all our Heart). The old Year Bearer moves on for the New Year Bearer to take its place. In the meantime, we’re on our own. The Maya observe the Wayeb as time to stay close to home, only leaving to check in on the neighbors. The Wayeb is a time to uphold the Truth we Believe, the Answers to our Prayers. We are completing the year 9 Earth/CABAN, a way of Life is “finished,” for a New Beginning. The Haab reflects Divine Intention on a Planetary Scale. We were given Time to learn Patience, to see the Bigger Picture. The New Year is guided by 10 Wind/IK. 10 hold the Intention of Manifestation. Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit, the Power of the god Huracan, that can sweep through and change the landscape of our Life. IK is the Voice of the Supreme Creator. 10 Wind/IK is the Manifestation of Divine Justice. Wind/IK is known to lead cycles of turbulence. We have to break down an established order to create a whole new way. Chaos will be the Sign of Divine Justice and a Major Life Change. The Wayeb is created for us to Shine, to know our Faith has the legs to stand. K’inich Ahau beams the First Light of the New Year, March 31, 2021 (10 Wind/IK). The End is declared from the Beginning by the One who gave breath to creation. K’inich Ahaj is the “brightest Light” of the Sun… a Flash of Light we won’t forget to see the future.
