MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
4 Flint / ETZNAB brings an Intention of Stability established on a new Foundation of Truth. ETZNAB, also known as Mirror, offers a perfect reflection of the Truth compared to the Obsidian Mirror.
The Maya used the Obsidian Mirror for the practice of divination, seeing it as a portal to where the Truth could be seen. Flint is said to offer Truth like a Flash of a lightning strike, relating to Obsidian which is created by lightning striking the ground.
The Eagle/MEN trecena offers the Gift of Higher Vision for our effort of Spiritual Growth. Just like a flash of lightning suddenly presents the “light of day,” so are plots hidden by darkness, suddenly and easily seen.
Nothing can be hidden from ETZNAB’s Light. It’s power is to expose what is unseen, unknown, and hidden. Flint has the power to break through illusion, bringing light to our subconscious fears, and to cut falsehoods away. ETZNAB is said to present the temptation to “act out of character,” as these are the Truths we hide from our Self. ETZNAB is a Day Sign that serves and defends the people by its own sacrifice, to sweep the slate clean. Flint is capable to restore our capabilities for discernment by offering Truth that divides Darkness from Light.
Flint is said to hold the Spark of Divine Intelligence. We could think of Flint’s Truth as the facts that suddenly make sense. On Tone 4 of Stability, we will learn a Truth that will become a foundation for our Divine Discernment. Flint/ETZNAB is the great equalizer as the Justice of Truth is brought to bear. Deception cannot be concealed and intentions are suddenly transparent… no one is left out. Flint sweeps the slate clean by revealing the truth of illusion.
ETZNAB can bring to the surface the illusions of our own Shadow. It’s Light is capable to reach deep within to expose the Truth of our Self… the parts of our Self we strive to keep hidden. ETZNAB is willing to do whatever is necessary to reveal this Truth.
ETZNAB is a day to expect the unexpected. Flint’s Truth can be hard news, as something our Lower Self has worked hard to cover up. This could be a major revealing that clearly presents a new way forward as a sudden administration of Divine Justice.
Tone 4’s Intention is to establish a foundation for our Spiritual Growth and a Sense of Orientation. In a trecena of Higher Discernment, we can see the Creator as a protector who levels the playing field – able to foil the obstacles of injustice we we didn’t even see. The Creator’s Voice can become “instantly recognizable.” We can discern the Creator’s Voice by the way its Truth makes Sense the moment we hear it, and tested in its Goodness to Benefit the Whole.
Our most important effort under the guidance of Flint, is to accept Truth about our Self. The Flint knife, like a surgery, can cause some initial injury to our Ego, though we will Know we will see the greater blessing that it is being swept away.
As Eagle encourages our Highest Aspirations, Flint addresses the opposite extremes of our Fear. We can be released from the ways we see our Self as incapable or unworthy, as we experience Unconditional Love in the Light of our own Darkest Secrets. Flint brings a clearing of Karma, and is the Day Sign willing to be the sacrifice on our behalf.
This is a day to take precautions, driving courteously, and show kindness to others. We’re guided to a personal sacrifice of ego, by not “saying what we’d REALLY like to say.” We should take note of our own darker instincts, for OUR OWN Discernment, since acting them out is likely to draw unfavorable consequences.
To all my relations, may we be prepared to Clearly See the Truth. May we give thanks for Divine Protection, that watches on our behalf for what we are unable to see. May we know the Creator as the Voice of a Truth we can validate the moment we hear it. And, may we remember the Creator’s Truth is an Almighty Power, capable to administer the Equity of Divine Justice.
in lak’ech, i am another you

4 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
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.
