Dear Mayan Majix Friends,

Today is 1 - Reed (Ben)

Tzolkin Count of Days



Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Ben (Reed)

Day 53 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: July 18, 2010

Year Bearer:  11 Manik


Trecenas are thirteen-day periods in the Tzolkin. Each Trecena starts with the Number 1, but with
a different Day Glyph. As a wave of the Thirteen Heavens, the underlying energy is governed by
the First Day Glyph of the Trecena and influences all thirteen successive Day Glyphs. Being aware
of the predominant energy of the First Day of the Trecena, we can align our intentions with that
energy and allow our goals to manifest.


This Trecena starts with 1 Ben (Reed/Corn) ambitious, strong, confident, inner power, authority, crusader, champion, journeying in new directions, energy connector between heaven and earth,
sharing connections with others.


In Mayan prophecy, the god-king Feathered Serpent or Quetzalcoatl would return to humanity in the year 1 Reed. According to legend, as a spiritual leader he advocated the replacement of human
sacrifice with flowers, songs and meditation. It was told that he erected a pillar in the city of
Tula “Place of Reeds” symbolizing the World Tree as an energy conduit between heaven and earth.

Reed energy, like a pillar receiving sunlight energy, serves as the connection between heaven and
earth. Thus Reed energy becomes a conduit of light energy, photosynthesis on a spiritual level, our continual link through many levels from the primordial cellular level to the higher vibrational level
of multidimensional existence. This photosynthesis of energy brings out the best in us, especially our passion for a concept we believe in. We feel inclined to begin a crusade for change, and many may gravitate to those born on the Day of Reed because of their clear visions of changing the world for
the better.


Another representation of the Trecena is that of a creative wave beginning at 1 and ending at 13,
with the numbers 6, 7 and 8 representing the crest of the wave. The crest could be interpreted as a strong influential energy, although the underlying influence on the Trecena would still rest in the beginning. This conduit of light energy crests on 6 Etznab (Flint), mirror or reflection, exposing our
inner selves; 7 Cauac (Storm), gathering energy to clear and cleanse our spirit; and 8 Ahau (Sun), embodiment of light energy which encourages our inner spirit to flower.


As we journey through each day of this Trecena:


1 Ben (Reed) – July 18, 2010 – Conscious Convergence

2 Ix (Jaguar) – July 19

3 Men (Eagle) – July 20

4 Cib (Wisdom) – July 21

5 Caban (Earth)– July 22

6 Etznab (Flint) – July 23

7 Cauac (Storm) – July 24

8 Ahau (Sun)– July 25

9 Imix ( Crocodile)– July 26 (2nd Night of the Tzolkin)

10 Ik (Wind) – July 27

11 Akbal (Night) – July 28

12 Kan (Seed) – July 29

13 Chicchan (Serpent) – July 30


Utilize the energy of Reed to recognize and honor our inner power and authority.  Now is the
time to access this higher vibration in order to make positive changes in our individual lives and
thus, the world. As we participate in the Conscious Convergence, now is the time to use this Reed energy (connect to our higher selves) in order to set our intention of co-creation and unity



In Lak’ech (I am another you),
