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. The transformer brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
Tone 10 is the Day of Manifestation. The Intention of our climb was to Offer our Highest Dream to the Creator. Given the Wisdom/CIB of the Experience, we ask for the Creator’s Consecration of Love – to seal within the Seed the most Divine Dream.
Offering our Self as the Living Sacrifice, we learned to turn to the Divine Consciousness within. The Wisdom of the Grandfathers and Grandmothers is alive within our Consciousness when we turn to their words, the stories, songs, traditions and ceremonies that they share. Each new generation is born to add their Light to the Divine Dreams we all Know at the Dawn of our Awakening.
The glyph illustrates the top of a pyramid as the place to receive an in-pouring of the Divine Light of Truth that sets us Free. To manifest Divine Wisdom, all we have to do is Ask, and show up like a good student, ready and willing to take Truth to the Heart.
Flint/ETZNAB is the Day Sign that intends to shine a Light on the Truth that is hidden or covered up. The purpose is to sweep false truth away. ETZNAB represents the Sacred Knife that cuts to the heart. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror that returns the perfect reflection of the Truth. Both Flint and Obsidian are associated with Fire. One is molten glass and the other strikes a Spark.
Flint’s Truth will strike a Spark in our Heart that is the Burning Fire of Divine Purpose. Flint is said to deliver Truth along the path of a Lightning Strike, a Beam of Fire. Flint’s Truth can burn away the false truth we chose from the worldly illusion. Flint delivers the “unexpected Truth” that we Knew all along.
10 Flint/ETZNAB is the Manifestation of Our Own Truth. Manifestation is a Blessing and a Responsibility. To manifest anything, we have to See, Acknowledge, and CLAIM the Truth. We have to Believe what our Heart Knows. We won’t find our truth in the world that is only a fluid dream floating by. We won’t find our Truth from anyone else. The Truth we are Raised to Believe will be the Truth in our Heart.
Our Spirit already Knows Our Truth. On 10 Flint/ETZNAB we hold the Right to Claim it as our Most Divine Wisdom. Our perceptions, our knowledge, and all the wisdom of our experience is WORTHY to stand on. Our Truth MATTERS in the Divine Design.
On the last 10 Flint/ETZNAB, October 29, 2018, I woke up in Cancun. It was the beginning of 4 days of Sacred Ceremony and a Dance of Spiritual Intention. I thought all my fear would be washed away when I completed the transfer from the airport to the hotel and I could feel the Earth and the Water at my feet. From the chaos of one obstacle after another, I just kept following the invisible path left by the Jaguar… facing down each fear, one at a time. It was an unexpected Truth, the fear of my own Dreams.
On 10 Flint/ETZNAB my fears turned from Human life and limb to fear of my own ability to carry out this Sacred Ceremony in a good and worthy way. I had dreamed of exactly what it should be and all the prayers I would offer as a Sacred Intention to ask for Forgiveness. The Vision of the Beauty was stirred up by a new fear that I’d come all this way and could still meet a personal failure.
The Truth of the climate and the physical impact was one unexpected Truth. I’d hoped to visit both Chichen Itza and Ek’ Balam. I wrote the journals in advance, not knowing what access I’d have to the Internet. 10 Flint was the only day I couldn’t see clearly ahead – the day for Chichen Itza. Instead, I was drawn to reserve all my Human resources for the Divine Intention at Ek’ Balam.
My heart was broken by Human limitation. I imagined all the things that could go wrong. It wasn’t just me that would be at Ek’ Balam. 5 other humans would be gathered with me there, people I’d never met before. It was one thing to lead my own ceremony, and another to lead anyone else. I was turned by Divine Inspiration to the Sacred Ceremony of my Dreams. As I cried that it was impossible to carry out in the most Divine Way, the Creator’s Light was do Do It NOW in Spirit. By Offering the Ceremony in Advance, I could believe the Light of the Intention was Already So. Anything that could happen in the world wouldn’t matter. I established my own Truth that No Darkness could extinguish this Light.
A Seed of Truth was consecrated on a Sacred Pilgrimage. My first intention wasn’t to go alone. I was even afraid to go WITH someone. It was fear that turned me to the Jaguar’s path from the beginning – I chose to believe the Jaguar was leading me there. Among the totem Jaguar’s gifts is the Courage to face our fear.
Seeing the whole experience from a Higher round of Consciousness, I KNOW that all the Obstacles were Divine. I didn’t mean to go on a vacation. The Intention was to carry out a Dance of Spirit. I was grateful for holding the Wisdom of the Sun/Moon Dance. My first and most Sacred Ceremony as a 4-day dance, was a sacrifice without food or water. It is not a “pretty” experience. It is sweat, exhaustion, and pushing through for a Divine PURPOSE TO FALL, to know you’ve given everything you possibly had to give. It was never about whether you could last through the 4 days, but whether you would dance until you fell.
It was the same in the Yucatan. I was barely able to get around in the heat and humidity. The human effort didn’t “look” very Divine. At least I remembered the Wisdom in the Moment that it didn’t have to, that a worldly demonstration would never equal the Divine Vision of it in the realm of Spirit. In every Dance of Spirit, the Truth comes after it is completed Below.
The Truth I know today is that it would never have been a Sacred Experience, a True Pilgrimage, without the challenges. The challenges only proved the Strength of my own Intention, and the determination to fulfill my Own Truth. Without Seeing the Darkness, I could have never known the Truth of overcoming my fears. I knew I was led to a Divine Place, Ek’ Balam, the Star Jaguar who’s gift is the Illumination of Darkness. Darkness is the most beautiful backdrop for the Light. Darkness is where we Discover Light.
I’ve felt that same sense of a broken heart passing through the Wayeb. Only, I’m seeing it in a new way. Yesterday, when I was broken by “lost love,” my Drop of Golden Light was the Truth that the darkness I found could be turned to Light. All I had to do was turn it around. “Lost Love” would become the darkness that I could Illuminate. I could Intend to fill the empty places of Love by Giving. Instead of mourning an injustice, I could create the Justice for someone else. For a moment, I saw the experience as my “dive to the underworld,” into the darkness to Know the Light that it could be. We could willingly enter the darkness, if we knew we could see the Reflection of Light – the equal and opposite gift of Light we are inspired to create instead of seek for our Self.
Flint/ETZNAB resides in the North, the direction of Divine Wisdom. Today we are prepared to receive an Illumination from the Zenithal Sun that will prove a Truth our Spirit Knew all along. Through the Element of Air, we are able to Draw the Light of the Creator’s Breath – the Truth that what SHALL BE was already created. The Dream for Divine Human Beings was already completed in the realm of Spirit by the Creator. Today we Know the Truth the Creator claimed for us at the very beginning. All WE have to do to claim the Blessing is to remember we made the Choice to Pay Back and Pay Forward in a prayer for Divine Will.
Our Hearts and Minds will be convicted when we See and Acknowledge the Truth that the Dream we Offered was given for the Sake of Love. Every obstacle is made Divine by Love. Overcoming Obstacles by Divine Intention is a Truth that we can only know by facing obstacles. Our Heart yearns to Give our Whole Self to Something We Love. Giving my whole self was the Intention of this journal. When I made the commitment to 260 days, I wanted the Intention to be Hard. Only by doing something hard, could I believe in myself, that I had given everything I had to give in an effort to turn my life around.
Today, we manifest the Truth in the 11th uinal that Resolves a way forward. MULUC is inspiring us to live from the Heart, without being Ruled by our Emotions. Instead all the emotions engaged when we do something hard, is the very thing that makes the Offering Divine.
One of the Miracles of the calendar is the chronology of Wisdom and Truth. The Truth we learn today is the Truth we always need Now to carry out a Divine Purpose. The Most Important Wisdom that must be held within the Seed is the Truth that there will be obstacles, and there would always be a Divine Way to overcome them. We are manifesting the Truth of Life for the Seed, that in spite of the darkness, we would Feel our Way to the Light. When we meet an obstacle, there would be a way through or around it.
As we Pay Forward a Divine Truth for the Seed, we manifest the Truth for our Self – Our Seed. We will see the Truth that we knew the direction to the Light, and we kept moving toward it, even as we were in the darkness. Our Divine Pilgrimage has been to “carry on to the Light,” believing that the obstacles overcome would manifest the Truth of something Divine. We did carry on believing. We did offer our Heart and Mind to a Higher Source of Wisdom. We did invest an effort to apply the Truth we intended to Believe. And, we Did Ask to Know the Most Divine Wisdom we could Only Know though an Offering.
Today, Flint’s Truth will be heralded in the Zenith Light to manifest the Truth we can stand on, our own. In the Light that leaves no shadows, we will see the Truth of our “Pure Spirit” and the Beauty of the Darkness with all its possibilities of Overcoming Light. Today, a work that engaged our Heart is finished and completed by a Lunar Eclipse.
This Full Moon is the Buck Moon, the Thunder Moon, and the Guru Moon. The Moon will appear full for about three days, from Monday night through Thursday morning. By Native American tradition, the “Thunder Moon” was named for July’s time of thunderstorms, rains, and downpours. After an eclipse, the Moon will reflect a New Light on our emotions. Through Thunder and Lightning we receive the Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit.
Flint’s Truth can feel like hard news, though it comes with the Truth that sets us free. Our “hard news” is always the fear of an illusion – that Flint is going to wipe away. Flint’s Thunder and Lightning Truth can also renew our Hope. Flint’s Lightning Strike of Renewal and Regeneration can be a Stroke of Genius.
To all my relations, May we See the Light of our own Pure Spirit. May we hold the Intention of Sacred Ceremony Here and Now. As we wait to receive the Light of the Zenith, may we declare in Advance the Beauty of it all. May we remember that the application of effort always precedes the Wisdom of the Experience. We don’t have to “know what we’re doing” when we are sacrificed to Love. May we see the Truth that with every Offering, we invested in the future. May we claim the Divinity of the New Seed, and the Truth that 260 days from now, we’ll see the Truth of what we Created grown to Maturity and capable to be Multiplied to Abundance. May we invest in the darkness to Know the Light. May we know that the Truth that we carried on, and that we are capable to carry on, will be the Spark of Believing for a new generation of Light.
May we offer all our Heart to the Light that proves that our Divine Truth was meant to be. May we hold the Gratitude as the Drop of Honey in our Heart, believing the darkness will magnify the Divine Light. May we Know the Truth that whenever we “do what we can,” we’ve done enough to prove to our Self that something WAS possible and that there Will Be a Divine Provision for every Offering we make.
May we Claim the Truth that our “I Am,” is Light, Holy Light, Eternal Light. May we claim the Divinity of every Choice we Make for the Sake of Love and Harmony. May we fiercely declare our Truth Created by Love was Meant to Be.
in lak’ech, i am another you,

ZENITH JOURNAL: We can SEE Miracles in our Life that align with the Universe when we Count the Days. An easy way to start is to Journal the Times and Dates of your Peak Experiences, and Journal Dates marked as Peak Experiences. My oldest writing are disorganized pieces of paper without any dates. There is Power in keeping it all in the same journal. It will multiply itself to abundance when you see the synchronicity of Time. This is a good time to start a new journal, beginning with the Light that is received at the Zenithal Sun. Paint the cover. Make it your own, marked by your own Signs and Symbols.
FREE TZOLK’IN JOURNAL PAGE (PDF)
This is an early draft of the Tzolk’in journal that will be offered for pre-order in August. You could start your own now to start out in a similar format. I’ll be looking for wholesale pricing on spiral bound journals. The page offers places to note aspects and draw the glyph of the day.

10 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
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.
[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. 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.

Bix a beel?
I will look forward to seeing your comments when I return. My thoughts are with you in Spirit.
AN INVITATION TO SACRED CEREMONY
On the last 10 Flint/ETZNAB we joined together in a Divine Intention of Pilgrimage. We intended to claim together the Holy Ground beneath our feet – the same as Ek’ Balam – wherever we were. The Power of Sacred Ceremony is multiplied by those who stand in agreement for a Divine Purpose. This is a day for a return to that Time and Place to receive the Sacred Exchange.
Know that you were with us, even if you weren’t Consciously along with us on the first trip. We prayed that the Ceremony was carried out on Behalf of the Whole. Our Intention was to be there by proxy for You. You were meant to be One in the Sacred Exchange. Today we can prepare for the Ceremony that is Wholly Beautiful in Spirit, already paid forward by our Sweat and our Tears.
The pilgrimage would never have happened without You. I could only keep following the Jaguar’s path, because I knew you were behind me. You made a way possible. I HAD to do it For You, because you believed in me. Today, may we believe in the Light of All of Us as we Create a Circle around a Fire in the realm of Spirit. I Love you.
