MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“Flint Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash… bringing things to a head, and wipes the slate clean.”
Today holds the potential for a personal Revelatory Experience. Descending peak energy generates the momentum for our next level of transformation. We are guided to employ the Patience of Perseverance and to Use our Gifts of Reason. Tone 9 asks us to pay attention as Flint/ETZNAB is about to make something crystal clear.
Yesterday was a Holy Day that celebrated the Spiritual Gift of our Awareness and Consciousness. Now, the very next Kin is positioned to reveal Truth. It may be something hidden in plain sight, a personal revelation of shadow, or a sudden life-changing event. We’ve been given the Head’s up!
Over the past couple of trecenas, I’ve had a growing awareness that my spiritual experiences are more significant when I look at them in hindsight. This is a powerful Spiritual Tool. Perhaps it is the conscious mind that tries to rationalize our experiences away in the moment, while our Spirit is able to establish their deeper significance over time. By the same token, hindsight helps us to process new experiences with greater discernment.
This is why a daily journal has been so helpful. I’ve looked back at what were small a-ha moment at the time, and now think – Wow, that really happened! Our accumulated experiences draw more Truth over time, if we will remember to reflect on them. Our Illumination, Transformation, and Higher Consciousness all comes down to a Practice of tracking the mind… paying attention to the voice within.
The more we learn to pay attention, the more aware we become of the distractions pulling us away… and, the more we QUESTION these distractions and wake up from Zombie mode. Our thoughts cease to be manipulated without our being aware of it.
Flint’s purpose is to draw things out to the open and sweep the slate clean. Flint deals out the Truth from reason, apart from emotion. So, we are cautioned to resist bad thoughts, impulses and temptation. ETZNAB is working to clear ALL things that are not operating in their highest integrity… and, for everyone to see.
Tone 9 and Etznab are an empowerment to one another so this could be a significant event. We might watch for evidence in the news. More importantly, we are guided to reflect on recent experiences that captured our attention. There is something deeper waiting to come forward that holds potential of a life-changing new awareness.
To all my relations, may we Honor and Use our Gifts of Reason as well as our Gifts of Spirit. May we remember to keep our eyes open for New Truth that may be remembered later as a major turning point in our lives.
NOTE: Pay attention when driving. Don’t react to the bad behavior of others. It could backfire. Everyone is tempted on Flint so darkness can be brought to light. Flint’s energy can build as the day goes on, but seems to suddenly shift in the transition to Storm/CAUAC. This is an opportunity to draw heightened awareness of energies as Flint can generate a palpable shift in the late afternoon.

9 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. A completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
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: Flint’s symbol is Chawa’ or Castor of the Castor and Pollux Twins in Gemini. Castor appears in the evening personifying darkness. Pollux then appears in the east at dawn to end the night. Totem is a Flint Knife. Flint spirit shone a light like the sun and gave the people the Sacred Venus Calendar, fixed the days and promised to watch over the earthlings. A flint person endeavors to keep that covenant. 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.
NEW DAY KEEPERS: My sacred intention for the new Tzolk’in round is to offer more personal support to those who may want to learn more about ways to draw personal meaning from the calendar. I will be offering an Introductory Guided Course for Day Keepers in the near future. Contact me if this is something you would be interested in! Also, if you’d just like help identifying your Day Sign, I’m more than happy to help. Blessings, in lak’ech Debra (firstname.lastname@example.org)
