MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 7 is our arrival at the top of the pyramid. We completed a Human effort of Spiritual Growth. Tone 7 is a place of Reflection, where we see all that is and all that is not. This is the place of Balance and a Gift of Divine Reciprocity. “As Above, So Below. As Below, So Above.” The effort that was made Below, will be Balanced by an effort of Divine Agency Above. We receive a Sacred Exchange for the effort of Intention to manifest Creation.
Tone 7 is the place with a 360 view. We can see what we’ve accomplished from many perspectives. This is the threshold to a Higher Consciousness of Divine Spirit. We will Know our Creation is the work of a Divine Hand, Greater than we could manifest by our Self. Our Hearts are measured. If we’ve failed our own standard for perfection, our failures will be lighter than a feather. Our own assessment of failure, proves we were reaching for something more. The Highest Altar where we fall in Humility is the threshold to the realm of Spirit, through which a Divine Power steps in. Tone 7 is related to the Jaguar, who guards the temples where Human is Atoned with the Creator by an Offering.
Flint/ETZNAB is a Spark of Consciousness. All the symbols related to ETZNAB are about a Vision of Truth. Mirror is another name for ETZNAB. The Obsidian Mirror offered a crystal clear reflection of reality, and was also seen as a portal through which to see into all realms of being and consciousness. The Flint Knife was the Sacred Tool for Sacrifice that cuts to the Heart, symbolizing Truth that reaches to the Core of our Being. Both are symbols associated with Lightning Power. Struck Flint creates a Spark and Obsidian is Earth struck by Lightning.
“Earth struck by Lightning” is a pretty good description of Flint’s energy. Flint makes us instantly and acutely aware of Truth, specifically Truth that is hidden or covered up. Flint reaches to the very heart of a matter that we already Know is the Truth, yet we either don’t want to see it, can’t believe what our gut is telling us, or were unconscious of the fact that we Knew it. Flint is a Divine Ah-ha Moment.
Like Lightning, Flint’s Truth is unbridled. It can be “good news” or “bad news.” Either way, it will make a point. Flint is a clearing of the mind, associated with a clearing of karma. Whatever this Truth is that is hidden or unconscious, we would be served by getting rid of it. Flint digs it out so it can be swept away.
The Good News may be we’ve been holding onto an illusion of powerlessness, limits we placed on our Self. The illusion may be broken in a single thought. The Bad News may be that we have to face a personal failing we were ashamed to see. It will ALL Be Good. The “Bad” can hold a Powerful Healing of Forgiveness. Flint tempts us to “act out of character.” It’s a trick. We see the Truth of who we are.
The way to avoid certain consequences is to be vigilant of the negative voice that urges us to do what we REALLY want to DO, or say what we’ve REALLY wanted to Say. Avoid temptations. Don’t go near your favorite doughnut store. Pay attention to the road. Expect instant karma. Flint IS going to make its Truth Known, no matter what it takes.
We have nothing to fear if we keep an open mind and follow the advice of our Conscious. Flint can sometimes be an increasingly stressful day – it’s a powerful energy. Though it can all be swept away by late afternoon to sunset.
Another way that Flint can manifest itself is through a Stroke of Genius. You may have a Dream or Intention that hasn’t been clear, or an old Dream you’ve given up on, when like a flash, you realize what a brilliant idea it really is and exactly how to proceed. I’m inclined to feel like we’ll be struck by a Divine Idea, since we were just guided by 6 Earth/CABAN to “take action with all our heart!”
Flint/ETZNAB can help us realize our own Spiritual Gifts of Knowing. Flint reveals a Truth you already Knew, without the evidence. How did you know it? What does Truth feel like when you know it without any proof? When you discern this feeling of Truth, you are experiencing your Spiritual Gift. When you are Conscious of what it feels like, it can serve its purpose as a Divine Source for Truth.
Consciousness is born of necessity by an acceleration of Human creation. There are so many facts and sources to consider to know the truth, so many choices in our everyday lives, we could spend forever discerning Truth from the mind of reason. In fact, with the technologies to create virtual reality, we can no longer base Truth on what we see with our own eyes. By Design it will force an evolution of Telepathy and Intuition, a way to know all Truth Instantly, like Flint.
We are ALL becoming more Conscious at an accelerating pace. Take your inner thoughts seriously. Remember to hold your Spiritual Experiences close to the chest, until you look deeper into the experience. The longer you leave an Inspiration undefined, the greater its Truth can become.
7 Flint/ETZNAB resides as the Highest Truth to complete the Empowerment of the 5th Uinal, a 20-day cycle that will end on 9 Sun/AHAU. Whatever this new Truth is, it will set us Free from an illusion of powerlessness.
Flint beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash. Flint is the transformer that brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
To all my relations, may we be courageous to open our Heart, so that any illusions of Darkness that cloud the picture of Truth can be swept away. May we not believe what we see with our own two eyes, but Believe in what we Know in our Heart. May we Claim our Truth and Stand on the Power of it to Set us Free. May we never be afraid of Truth, seeing it instead as a Freedom Opportunity. May we Humbly kneel at the Highest Altar asking for protection for the whole of Humanity, that we might all learn what we need to Know the easy way. May we remember that Forgiveness is the Key to our Salvation. May we Give Thanks for the Gift of Consciousness, Thought, and Senses Being that allow us to discern the experience of our lives. May we be grateful for the help of Divine Intervention to manifest creation. May we Know how powerful our Spirits must be to reach beyond the limit of our Human Nature to become a Reflection of Divinity.
in lak’ech, I am another you

7 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
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. Flint is the transformer that brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
