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 to wipe the slate clean.”
Tone 9 holds the Peak Energy of Transformation. Through an Intention of Patience, we are guided by a gift of retrospection to see the bigger picture. Tone 9 warns that there could be suffering to bear for a lack of patience in understanding. Completion is all-important to the number 9. 9 is the all-in-one that makes up the zero, the Omega.
Flint/ETZNAB presents an unexpected Truth of something that has been hidden or covered up. Flint is said to present temptation to act out of character. Though, what is revealed is the hidden Truth. The Truth that will complete the Transformation of the Dog/OC trecena will elevate our perspective on Love.
The Flint Knife was the sacred object used to cut to the heart. Flint cuts through an illusion that stands in the way of our experience of Unconditional Love. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, symbolizing the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of hidden truth.
It’s hard to predict what Flint’s Truth might be, though we can be sure that ETZNAB will share insight on “how Truth feels.” Flint’s Truth can reveal something we already Knew, but failed to acknowledge. It may be Truth we Knew but didn’t want to believe. Or, it could be a Truth about our Self, we wanted to believe but didn’t have the Faith to Dream of.
Whatever it is, Flint will send the Truth like a lightning flash. We’ll know it when we hear it or see it. Today we may see how much our Love matters to the world. Caution and avoidance of impulsive action goes with Flint, to avoid learning something “the hard way.” If we are Conscious of our thoughts, we can learn without consequence.
Strange things can happen on Flint/ETZNAB. The good news is that the Truth will serve a Divine Purpose to sweep away an illusion that stands in the way of our upward progress. If we’re lucky, Flint could present us with a “stroke of genius.” We may see a way forward that we have already thought of, but was beyond our Consciousness to see it for the real opportunity it presented.
We can hold Faith in the Higher Purpose of the Truth we find out today. Flint teaches us the value of Truth to set us Free. We might consider how we can fear the Truth, making choices that overlook Truth we know in order to maintain the comfort of the Known versus the challenge of the Unknown. When we Know the Truth for what it is, we are always Free to make better choices based on the facts. We can move forward, accepting the Truth instead of fearing it.
Flint reminds me that the false truth we fear creates an illusion that is worse than the Truth. There’s no end to our imagining of the unlimited ways it could play out. Only Truth can present the One Answer that resolves a host of questions. Truth allows us to see our best way forward.
To all my relations, may we open our hearts and minds to the Truth. May we give thanks for the Gift of Knowing Truth when it presents itself. May we see Truth for what it is, a new path that’s been opened to make Choices based on fact instead of our illusions and fears. May we crystallize the Gut Feeling of Truth so we will Know how Truth feels. May we know the Truth of Unconditional Love that sets us free.
in lak’ech, i am another you,

THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE
I’m grateful for the Gift of Knowing the Truth when we hear it. I’m grateful that we can learn that Truth is something we never need to fear.

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.

UPDATE ON A LIFE DREAM:
On 4 Sun/AHAU I was able to make the reservations for the trip, arriving on October 28 as I had hoped to be there to celebrate Ian Lungold’s Mayan birthday, 12 Sun/AHAU, on October 31st along with the observance of the Day of the Dead. It felt important to the information I would share in my book. I’m grateful to be part of such a flow of Love, more necessary that money, for the realization of my dream. You are already the blessing of just being here. (But you could help me spread the word.) much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit
SEPTEMBER 12th Update:
I received my new passport! My Leap of Faith to buy the ticket before receiving it paid off. 🙂 The reality is starting to set in. I’m excited to carry you with me. My 68th gregorian birthday is this week. I know what a healing it will be to see I’m just as capable as I have always been to charge off into the unknown for the experience. (Monkey must be talking.) I couldn’t be doing this without you.
