THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK
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.
Called Near by God
Reed/BEN is the name given to the open channel of energy that exists between God and man. “Hollow Reed” is a metaphor with roots in ancient Sanskrit literature:
Make me a hollow reed from which the pith of self hath been blown so that I may become a clear channel through which Thy love may flow to others.
~ by Rumi
Reed/BEN uses the energy of the Wind/IK trecena to blow us clear so that we are emptied of our self-centered desires and filled with the passion to be near our Creator. Reed/BEN makes of us a channel through which the power of Divine Spirit may flow.
Galactic Tone 12 reflects the intention of understanding. Twelve is the Tone in every trecena where Truth makes the journey from our heads to our hearts. Empowered with the “gift of great capacity for retrospection” we are able to piece together our experiences and knowledge so we may be brought to a new realization.
What beautiful experiences the Wind/IK trecena has brought us so we may realize the beauty that lies in contrast. Our darkest days become the backdrop that displays God’s light most brilliantly. All fear and despair is transformed into joy as we begin to see the pattern. Through our suffering, we are drawn to the nearness of God. Our fear dissolves because we can see the transitory nature of our heartaches. We can recognize them as merely the discomfort of being blown clear, and as a “Sign” that we are being opened to receive new blessings.
As we realize the Truth of our connection we have everything we need to be happy. Even under the worst of conditions, we always have a place to go – an inner sanctuary that holds open the channel to Divine Love. We no longer need hope – for now we know joy.
To all my relations, may we be transformed to see the potential for beauty that lies in every experience. When we are hurting or afraid, may we recognize it as the voice of God calling us near. May we remember that when we rest in the peace of the Divine Will, the path of beauty ALWAYS leads us into the Light.
