5 Flint / ETZNAB – Walking as a Shape-Shifter: Day 5 of 13


5 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

On Tone 5 we receive the energy of Empowerment. We receive the Power to complete a climb to manifest a new Inner Strength of Spirit.

The Jaguar is leading us on a path of Consciousness. We are applying the Wisdom of Divine Consciousness in the Unseen realm of Spirit. Jaguar guides us to shift to our Higher Consciousness to Remember the Power of our Spiritual Identity.

Flint/ETZNAB will guide us to see the Power of Truth. Also known as Mirror, ETZNAB relates to the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of Truth.

All the Day Signs lead us to the Consciousness of Truth, though Flint’s Truth is like the knife that cuts to the Heart. ETZNAB makes a Truth Crystal Clear that was concealed, hidden, or covered up. Flint is said to deliver Truth along the path of a lightning strike.  Truth can come as a stroke of genius, or as a “hard truth” we didn’t want to see. Though, the nature of the experience is always Unexpected. Flint’s purpose is to sweep illusions away.

Flint is a Day Sign that leaves an impression. It’s a day to take precaution and to expect the unexpected. Flint is said to present a temptation to act out of character, revealing Truth we may conceal. Flint’s energy can inspire us to “say what we really wanted to say,” and “do what we really wanted to do.”

This is a day of Heightened Consciousness and the Power for Divine Discernment. Tone 5 is an organizing force of Intelligence, capable to draw together, organize, and utilize our Spiritual Resources. Flint empowers the Intention by insuring we have all the facts. Shifting our Consciousness to the realm of Spirit, we already Know the Truth.

Curly, the old cowhand in the movie “City Slickers” offered his philosophy that life was all about the “One most important thing.” He introduced a question without an answer. Flint’s answer for the “One thing” would be the Consciousness to Know the Truth. Truth will dispel all our illusions of Powerlessness. Through Truth, we Belief. Through Belief, we Create the pillars that upholds a Universe in Spirit. Truth sets us free.

Energetically, Flint can be a day of intensity. Flint Forces us to see the Truth. It’s a good day to tune-in to the Consciousness of your energy. You may take note of a shift of energy that happens near sunset when we begin to move from Flint to Storm/CAUAC – an energy of the comfort of home. You might relate to Flint as a surgery with a 24-hour recovery.

The most important thing to be Conscious of is How Truth Feels. When we hear the Truth, we Know it. It feels like we knew it all along.  Knowing how Truth feels empowers us to Discern the Truth.

To all my relations, may we receive the Truth as a Blessing, believing that no matter what is revealed, it is bringing the Truth that will set us Free. May Knowing the Truth be our “One thing” more important than the pain that might be associated with the Knowing. May we Face the Truth and Ask the Truth, especially when we are afraid to Know it. May we offer forbearance to others who may reflect the worst side of themselves. Through Truth we can Discern the Choices that lead to the Happiness that was meant for us. May we have Faith in the Care and Protection of an Almighty Creator who Knows the Truth we need to Hear to be Free.

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.

21-Days of Gratitude: Day 4

I’m grateful that Truth is always better than the Fear of the Illusion. I’m grateful for Truth that allows us to Discern our Highest Choices.

5 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)

Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.

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 accidens, 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.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
