MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 holds the Intention of an Empowerment. Tone 5 is the center of the cube, the organizing force within that manages resources and application. Tone 5 prepares us for dynamic development by assessing the circumstances and gathering what is needed. Tone 5 applies the resources for a climb to Higher Ground.
Flint/ETZNAB is also known as Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror which offers a perfect reflection of the Truth. Flint is the Sacred Knife that cuts to the heart of a matter, said to deliver a “sword of Truth” along the path of a lightning strike.
Flint delivers the Truth that is hidden or covered up. Flint’s Truth is always unexpected and offered for the purpose to “sweep the slate clean.” Flint can clear obstacles and past karma by presenting Truth that was hidden in the heart.
ETZNAB resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom. Holding the Element of Air, ETZNAB is related to the faculties of thought, consciousness, and the ability to comprehend. Flint holds the power to Change our Mind through a clear and sudden comprehension of Truth.
There are many ways that Flint can deliver its Truth, but we will Know this Truth as soon as it’s presented. We already knew. It’s either a Truth we didn’t want to believe, didn’t dare believe, or couldn’t hope to believe. Flint’s principle purpose is to help us Know that Truth will always set us free.
Flint is said to offer a temptation to act out-of-character, though what we call out-of-character is our own hidden Truth. This is a day of the unexpected when others are also likely to act out. Flint always comes with a warning to allow wide berth and tolerance to those around you. It’s an important day to pay attention to your thoughts, so the Truth can be known without any consequences.
Flint can raise Consciousness to our own Spiritual Gift of telepathy. We’ll hear the Unspoken Truth behind any false truth we hear. (Conscious Self Reflection and Truth are the ONLY policies on Flint. Everyone will see the Truth behind any hidden motives.) The Obsidian Mirror returns a perfect reflection of Truth.
Another way that Flint can present Truth is through a “stroke of genius.” You may have contemplated a dream, and suddenly it all makes perfect sense and reveals all the possibilities. Flint changes the way we see things by Truth.
Flint/ETZNAB holds an intention relevant to Tone 5, drawing together our most important resource of Truth. All our Gifts of Consciousness were given to Know the Truth. We don’t have to wait for some Miracle of Consciousness. Consciousness is a Choice of our own Free Will. We only have to want it in our heart and ask to know it better.
Sometimes we avoid knowing Truth. If we “knew” what we suspected, the Truth would require us to take action or move in a new direction. Truth can force us toward a whole new set of Unknown circumstances. Sometimes we Know the Truth but hope it’s only our imagination. In the case of a “stroke of genius” we may have had a great idea without seeing the real Truth of the possibility. Flint’s Truth sweeps all the speculation away and offers a clear path forward. It could sound like “hard news” when we hear it, but it will be the very Truth we needed most.
It’s funny how Human can know the Truth but hesitate to face it head on. The consequences of knowing something for sure, sets the stage for change. As much as we can fear believing our own Truth, it offers a vast improvement over our negative speculations. I Know that the worst things that have ever happened in my life have been illusions that never materialized. We can also be held back by a limitation we see in our Self that wasn’t True.
Truth will deliver the Empowerment we need for this climb of Spiritual Growth. Whether we’re pleasantly surprised, or shocked by what we learn, we’ll see exactly what we need to do going forward.
This is a day to pay attention to your thoughts. You’ll know the Truth when you hear it. You can also learn “how your Truth feels.” When we hear the Truth we aren’t confused. We don’t have doubts or question it. Truth makes sense without any further evidence. Truth will always feel that way. It’s a very Special Gift we take for granted. Flint/ETZNAB can help us realize our own Truth.
CIB came first to teach us the Wisdom of Forgiveness. We should always be Forgiving when someone shares their Truth. Truth Honors one another as being important enough to know the Truth. Withholding Truth is as dishonest as lying when it misdirects or misleads the best course for another Human Being. Sharing the Truth will either set us Free, or it can Draw us Closer Together. There is Humility in Truth when it is shared from an Intention of Unconditional Love. Like the Jaguar teaches us to do, we shape-shift into our Divine Nature.
Our Truth will eventually be seen for what it is, Unconditional Love, when we Humbly present it as Our Own Truth. Love shares the True Condition of the Heart. Truth always requires Discernment. We must use our Intellect and Wisdom to discern we are sharing Truth for the purpose of Love. Discerning our Truth is the way to find all the treasure in our archeological resources of experience. Truth can set us free from the past as well as guiding a course to the future.
To know the Truth from an illusion is as simple as an application of discernment. CIB taught us to use our brains to learn from wisdom and experience. When we are confused, have doubts or questions, we haven’t heard the Truth. CIB offered us the Wisdom of Forgiveness as a tool to see things clearly. Forgiveness is Human’s most Divine Love. Hiding our Truth means we’ve characterized someone else as unworthy to Know it. We don’t trust them with our Truth, or we lose something if they know our Truth. We lose something of our Self when we deny our Truth. Only in our Truth can we be Loved exactly as we are.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for this Gift we have of Knowing the Truth. The Truth will be a fundamental assessment to know our direction. May we receive the Truth that will sweep away limitations that were based on an illusion. May we see how a direction we feared to take, is easier when we know the Truth. May our idea that Truth will present more obstacles, be swept away as we see how easy it is to know what to do when we face the Truth. May we see the Truth of Possibilities we hoped for, but were afraid to believe for fear of a personal disappointment. May we invest ourselves in an “all in” effort, always, to know the Truth, believing in the Freedom of Truth. May we add to our resources, the Sword of Truth that will Empower the way to Higher Ground.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT
I received the Christmas card from Dad with $10 for each of my three Grandchildren. My 91 and 92 year old parents have 19 great grandchildren. I imagined what a feat it must be at 92 to get all those cards in the mail on time. As I was mailing my box to Mom and Dad, I remembered the card and bought Dad a book of stamps to slip into an extra Christmas card. Mom has lost her memory, so she can’t be left alone in the car. They live in the country and still drive to town, though it takes special arrangements to do more than go through a fast-food drive-through. Dad was never easy to buy for. I can’t tell you how much joy there was in receiving his email, “I’m wondering how you knew I was out of stamps.” They’ve done it every Christmas. It never occurred to me before. It was simple math with the Consciousness of Love. The greatest gift was knowing that Dad’s Love was Seen and Acknowledged, a Gift that Blessed Both Sides.

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
