MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
On Tone 6 we move into the Peak Energies of this 13-day cycle. The effort we’ve made in holding an Intention of Spirit takes on the momentum of Flow, as a rhythm and pattern of movement.
Flint/ETZNAB is the Stellar Ray that brings Light to things that have been concealed or hidden. This is a day of Truth that cuts to the heart of a matter.
6 Flint/ETZNAB generates a Flow of Movement that shines a Light of Truth. “Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away.”
GREEN KIN: ELEMENT OF ETHER
6 Flint/ETZNAB, Kin 58, is a Portal Day that presents a thinning of the veil. Flint’s Truth may be Revealed as a sudden sense of Intuition or Knowing. Today we will face a new Truth about our Self. Made crystal clear, the Truth brought to Light will change the way we see ourselves and others.
Flint is the Mirror of Reality, capable to discriminate emotions from the facts. As a Day Sign said to present temptation, we should expect the unexpected from our Self and Others. When we act out-of-character we See the Truth of something we try to hide from our Self.
We were Initiated by our Ascension from the Sun/AHAU trecena to take on the role of Spiritual Authority as the priest, way shower, and shaman. Guided by Reed/BEN our thoughts are called to Home as the place where our Light will serve its Highest Purpose. The Reed/BEN glyph illustrates the Above and Below of an altar. We carry out our purpose of Spiritual Authority, kneeling in Humility on the prayer mats below. We acknowledge that we are Human like the rest, and that no one of us is made more special or worthy than another.
Flint/ETZNAB can bring a sudden light to the “differences” we try to cover up in an effort to be like everyone else. We are each meant to find our own way that is Perfect and Divine. When we strive to be something other than who we are, we diminish our own Light.
Among the first teachings that made an impression on me from Joseph Rael, “Beautiful Painted Arrow,” reflected the Humility of his Spiritual Authority. He said, “Don’t strive to emulate me, but create your own Spiritual Myths.” He saw his purpose as only an example of what others would learn do in their own way. The Sacred Wisdom preserved by our Ancestors is an inheritance of the Proven and Worthy Tools that would help us Discern our own Truth.
Flint/ETZNAB completes the Intention of Flow by being impeccable in our Truth. We harness our momentum by walking the talk. This is the way to avoid setbacks, misunderstandings, and gossip. As a Divine Authority of Humility, we share our strength in the Light of our Own Weakness.
Flint presents the potential for sudden and unexpected developments. This is a day to think before we act or speak, and to expect the unexpected from one another. Whatever deception is lurking in the shadows can now be brought to light.
Though “caution” is our guidance, Flint’s underlying purpose is to clear a new path forward. Flint reveals Truth to sweep our slates clean of patterns of thought or behavior that hold us back. Flint always presents something memorable that can reveal why we do the things we do.
To all my relations, may our eyes be opened for a new Truth. May we continue to move forward, accepting that even our Truth is subject to perpetual change. May we see that our Transformation to Higher Consciousness requires the courage to look within, and the flexibility to Change our Mind. May we draw upon the Presence of Spirit to help us accept the Truth of a new Understanding. May we encourage others to see the Truth of their own Light, and the Grace of Unconditional Love that accepts us exactly as we Are.
NOTE: Sometimes Flint Days can be stressful or intense… and more so, as the day moves on. You might look for a shift of energy in the late afternoon that brings the immediate “comfort of home” in the hand-off to Storm/CAUAC.

6 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
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: Mirror, flint. Ability to discern deception and mirror it back to the other. A catalyst for change through this ability. When used properly, harmonic resonance can be the result. If you take on anothers issues through the mirror, the result will be anger, grief and misunderstanding of purpose. All issues will surface and be mirrored in this earth walk. Energy comparable for teaching, leader, philosopher, writer, observing the mass consciousness evolution in some manner.
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.
