MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
We shift from ascending to descending energy on Tone 8. Compared to a wave of time, each trecena builds momentum through Tones 1-6. Tone 7 reaches the threshold of balance and at Tone 8, momentum and gravity accelerate energies to affect a transformation.
Flint/ETZNAB is the great equalizer as the Justice of Truth is brought to bear. Flint sweeps the slate clean by revealing the truth of illusion. Deception cannot be concealed and intentions are suddenly transparent. In the context of exploring our identity, Flint holds the potential for a revelation of the truth of who we are.
THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
8 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eights carefully weighs all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement ‘as above, so below,’ from simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation, some eights are ‘neat freaks.’
Flint/ETZNAB: Mirror of reality. As a struck flint, these persons are the divine sparks of intelligence. Flint’s innate abilities are utilized to discriminate emotions from fact. Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away. Flints, it was said, can receive information on inter-personal troubles or evil plots of others by reflecting in an obsidian mirror. Their valiant service as warriors of the truth must be impeccable or they will experience sufferings of accidents, misunderstandings and gossip.
Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA: Opener of the Way, a creator, innovator, stretches the mind to outside limits of capabilities. Changes the static to the dynamic. Brings about change, often through separation and destruction. Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash. The transformer brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean. (Complete description included with the Trecena guide.)
Crystallization of Spirit Day 8
Things can happen quickly on Flint/ETZNAB as we move from static to dynamic energy. Tone 8 brings an intention of Justice, through balance and harmony. We’re advised to take precautions and to watch for the unexpected. While Flint can bring potential risk and intensity, Flint’s Truths are the substance of a liberation.
This is a day to be en pointe as we may face a greater temptation to veer off course. This is not a day for knee-jerk responses. We will most likely be held accountable as this is the truth of who we are in that moment.
This is a day to aspire to our most valiant effort of living in the truth of who we are. We may be tested. We can be encouraged that Flint seems to come in quickly, make its point, and move on at sunset.
To all my relations, may we be vigilant in our effort to live in our highest intention. May we anticipate a new Truth with our eyes wide open.
in lak’ech, i am another you
