MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
ETZNAB “beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash.”
The Intention of Tone 4 is Stability. 4 represents the cube, the most stable of platonic forms. Tone 4 establishes the parameters, boundaries, dimension, and rules of a Divine “game” of creation.
Tone 4 is an Inherent human thought about laying a foundation For A Way. Comparing it to the 4th Hour (the human legend of thoughts), that’s about the time we get to work and see what needs to be done. We Inherently prepare our workspace for the task at hand. In our 4th-hour thought of Creation we survey the landscape. Don’t we ALL do that?
The Maya were conscious of their lives to learn Human Time from each other. They were conscious to see what was right in front of them. They didn’t compare the “way” another human pulled it off. They saw that we were all doing the same things at the same times. Living within a forest they came upon each other all in synchronicity of purpose. The Maya became the Lords of Time because they Loved it and reached to know everything they could about Time on every scale… seeing a Meaning for Time in themselves.
The Maya are proof that Mother Earth, like the Earth in us, holds every thing Human needs to Live and Know Everything we’d Love to know. Kapacha’s Astrology for the Soul, updated on the Astrology Page, is a movie about his “No’j Love to Know” as much as it is about the order of the stars. Looking deeply at what’s right in front of us always sheds more Light. We see something different when we watch “what is happening.” To see a moving picture we must be conscious to see the Whole Truth of Time from a beginning to an end.
4 Flint/ETZNAB presents the Truth in the Highest Priority of our “Need to Know.” Under the Intention of Tone 4, Flint’s Truth will be what we “need to know” to create our own solid ground. Flint’s Truth cuts right to the heart of a matter. The Flint knife is the sacred implement for a sacrifice of the Heart. ETZNAB is aka “Mirror,” like the Obsidian Mirror that reflects the TRUTH. The world is the illusion. We can see the Truth as an equal and opposite reflection with the Gift of ETZNAB.
If you are thinking of beginning a Tzolk’in journal, Flint is a good place to start. Flint is one of the most energetic forces of thought. You can FEEL IT if you pay attention. It always leaves a mark of a Truth you needed to know. Something unexpected always happens on Flint. Flint is said to present a temptation to “act out of character.” Yet “out of character” is the truth we try to hide, from others – and our Self. With a written record of your own experience, you’ll see how Flint ALWAYS delivers an unexpected Truth. About the Time you think you know what to expect, Flint’s Truth will be something completely different. At first, I feared it. Now I love it. November 8, 2016 (Election Day) was 5 Flint/ETZNAB, a sample of Flint/ETZNAB’s Unexpected Truth, and Wind that changed the landscape of our thoughts.
Flint can help you see the energetic thoughts of human impulses. These are primal human instincts, like fight or flight. Only they are “to be seen or to not be seen.” None of us want to be seen by “our own” dark thoughts. We’d never share the worst ones.
Flint is said to deliver Truth along the path of a Lightning Strike. Flint is a Thunderbolt of Truth. The glyph illustrates the top of the pyramid, the pinnacle view of everything “that is” and everything “that is not.” The Meaning and Purpose of Flint’s Truth is to sweep away the darkness, with a single stroke of Light.
Flint reveals Truth about our Self. Flint reveals our Own Truth. And, Flint reveals the Truth that Our Own Truth is the Truth we were Divinely Meant to Stand On.
No Day is ever the same. We are never the same from what we experience one Day to another. EVERY Day we wake up with more Wisdom of Experience. There is always something very Sacred to learn from what we can See today.
Flint gives us something we can see about our Self and the Truth around us. We will be Given a Truth to lean on.
Yesterday morning I felt so close to Mother Earth. It feeds our Soul to Speak Truth to Mother Earth, to tell her how beautiful she is. Our Minds are always Blessed when we actually step into the Morning Light to Receive it, Feel it, See and Acknowledge it as the Light of another Sacred Day. That is our Most Divine Truth every Day – an eternal promise of Light proved it was True again.
This was my state of mind when I left to run an errand. I wasn’t even out of the parking lot before another human was walking in the middle of the way in front of me. My first impulse was a character judgement, an annoyance. Moments later when I had room to pass stopping to pickup mail, I wondered how I could go from such Divine Thoughts to Dark Thoughts. It contradicted what I believe about myself – that I couldn’t be one thing, if I was also the other.
We may ask the same thing about God. How can the Darkness Be, if there’s an Unconditionally Loving Supreme Creator? We have to Know the Truth that Life is a Dynamic Illustration. We fixate on one frame of a moving picture, instead of watching what is really happening.
God’s Truth is a Light that Overcomes Darkness. A Light that can Live in Harmony and Exist in Balance with Darkness. How could you illustrate a still picture of that? Mother Earth keeps Moving to show us the Balance in all things. She proves that when we are no longer in the Light, we are still moving Toward the Light.
Flint’s Light is a Truth we won’t forget. ETZNAB’s Perfect Reflection of Truth will Set us Free to Be Divine. Flint’s Truth will be a Divine Light of No’j, the Sacred Word of the K’iche that is the Knowledge of Identity for Human to claim the Truth of Divinity.
My prayers go out to so many facing life and death tragedy as we go through the chaos of a Major Change. Truths about our Self had to come out that were festering under the surface. Only by seeing the real darkness, will we Know the Light it could Be. We won’t see it in the Moment. It won’t be a still shot. We must watch to See it Unfolding.
My still shot yesterday morning was the dark thought. When I step back to see the moving picture, I can see that I Didn’t Choose It. In times of chaos ALL our thoughts are a whirlwind in the Element of Air. They are the chaos of excited particles that precede a storm. They are influenced by the Divine Power of Intentional Thoughts. An Intentional thought can shine through the Darkness, creating it’s own Beam of Light.
One Truth we can See about our Self on Flint is that dark thoughts don’t belong to us, unless we claim them. They aren’t ours unless we follow them by conscious intention. Dark thoughts are no reflection of our own Identity. We can See them. The CHOICE defines who we are.
We can See the Divinity of the Darkness as an Offering shared from Above. The Creator is sharing the Darkness for a Divine Dream. Our Meaning and Purpose is to do what we Inherently do, Imagine the Perfect Way we’d Love for it To Be. We’d Choose the Creator’s Dream to see what Our “Divine” would be. Darkness is Divinely allowed to be for the Light Born through the Experience. With our Earth’s sense of balance, our Human eye can see a worldly balance of dark and light. Our Divine Eye can see that when Dark and Light are in Harmony, there is an even Greater Light of Consciousness – our Oneness with the Universe.
Flint resides in the North, the place of Divine Wisdom and the Element of Air. Flint’s Air and Truth will change the landscape of our thoughts. ETZNAB is a Truth that once seen, can’t be unseen or ever unknown again. It isn’t Truth we have to try to remember, but Truth that will Live as OUR Common/Divine Sense.
You never know what Flint’s Truth might be. It can be a Joyous Truth, a Stroke of Genius, a Revelation or Epiphany. At first it may knock you over, though that is only the beginning of a Truth being revealed that will bring Light to Darkness. Flint’s Truth Shines a Way that offers an orientation and foundation for the Work of our Creation.
We always magnify the Strength of our Consciousness by following what we are Inherently designed to do. The Eagle warns us that the only thing that can prevent us from Grasping our Dream is a Choice to Fly Away. The Eagle/MEN trecena is guiding us to Lean Into the Wind, the Divine Will of the Creator… Believe in what we See as our Promise in the Future – Divine Justice.
8 Wind/IK waits as a pinnacle of Divine Justice, when the Will of God disseminated by Wind/IK is revealed in its Zenith Light. The Holy Day is observed as the “Day of Purification.”
Flint holds a gift of telepathy. Those born Flint don’t have to say anything if you present them with the false truth. Like a Mirror, the Truth is all over their face. With an Intention of “tracking the mind,” Flint reveals its own Gift in us. Flint can teach us how Truth Feels.
When we receive Flint’s strike, there won’t be any lingering questions. We’ll know it’s Truth the moment we see or hear it. OUR Truth is held by our own Divine Spirit. We are Divinely Designed so that when Human hears a Truth that Spirit Knows, we realize Truth we always knew.
On Flint’s Day, the pressure can build from morning into the afternoon. A shift comes as the Day’s Sun gets closer to the Western horizon. The Elders always said we were supposed to let our worries go down with the Setting Sun. On Flint you could feel them being swept away.
In the 12th uinal of Understanding, we are in the Contractions of a New Birth of Consciousness. We’ve outgrown the womb. It’s Time to Enter the Light of a New reality. Our Place in Time is the chaos of Birthing our Most Divine Creation. We’ve Grown to Maturity, holding the Wisdom of all the Day Signs. CIMI the Transformer and midwife, reminding us to breath and see the Blessing in the Future. Now Eagle lifts us up into our Highest Position to See.
All we need with Eagle’s Divine Eye is a speck of a certain color farther than a mile away. With the Help of Flint, the Truth will be right in front of us in a flash. Human thoughts were separated from the Creator’s thoughts by Duality. Our Spirit is always One. Our Divine Eye can be Opened by Truth, when we are seeing Life from up Above, sharing the same perspective as the Supreme Creator.
To all my relations, Receive the Light of the Sun and claim the Illumination that INTENDS to Balance the Darkness. May we look to the Truth Promised To Be. May we Know the most important Truth that lies in our Heart.
May we measure our state-of-mind by the Choices we make. May we See, Acknowledge, Give Thanks for, and Appreciate the Darkness that helped us shine Our Light on what it Could Be. May we see how Darkness can change us, just like the Light can change us.
May we find our Own Truth to stand on. May we allow others to stand on Their Truth. We HAVE to stand on the Truth given for Each of us to Know Today in our Own Movie. Radical human thoughts of Transformation are swirling in and around us… Offering us the Consciousness of a Choice of Light.
May we send our Love to the Whole, claiming the Holy Ground we all stand on and the Breath we share with the Creator in the Element of the Air.
May we Disseminate our Intentional Thoughts into the Element of Air, with every breath we can Remember. May we use the Spoken Words of Love for Mother Earth, our “purest love” that holds no conditions. May we speak to the Sunset that will carry all the darkness of one day into the Light of Another.
May we Receive the Light of the Morning Sun and Give Thanks for it, and Tell it,
“Thank You for the Light that is Being Born from us. Thank you for Creating Humans worthy to Know it, Hold it, and Multiply it to Abundance. Your Light WILL BE BORN.”
May we Call on our Grandfathers and Grandmothers that are One in the Legion of Light.
“I Know you are with us and see the way. Please be with those who need the Comfort of your Light. The Divine Truth shall Be, that a Miracle was waiting for those who were lost, and a Miracle IS STILL waiting for ALL of us left behind.”
in lak’ech, i am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
MY HIGHEST GOD SO FAR: We only have To Be, to fulfill our most Divine Purpose for a Supreme Creator. We can be who we are right now. No matter what darkness we’ve seen in our self, we don’t have to fix it first to receive the Creator’s Love. Allowing our Self to Be Loved by the Creator, Love will change us. God wants us to Know that it only takes Love to change what we see as broken. My Truth is that the things that are still broken aren’t important enough to be the Creator’s first priority. The Light we can’t See – the Truth of Divine Love – is ALWAYS the FIRST, the 1, the 1 and Only Priority. If the darkness we see in our self has been Seen as a Limitation we wouldn’t choose, the darkness has already been brought to the Light, and a Miracle is already waiting to happen in the Creator’s Divine Time. The First Priority is Knowing how much we are loved, just as we ALWAYS are. We are always held in the Perfect Place by the Creator’s Intention of our Time. How ever extreme a darkness may be, WILL BE the measure of the Miracle. God meant for us to Love our Self as we Are and Know that we are Sacred. We walk the “hard road” as a living sacrifice so God can watch the movie with us. Always with us, Together we Will Share the Joy of Divine Justice of our Holy Communion.
We have the Power to See our Highest Vision of God. With Eagle’s Eye and a Dream of our Highest Aspiration, we can Create the God of our Highest Imagination, and still know we will Never come close to the Beauty of the Truth beyond Human imagination. There is so much Love, we need every Day of our Life just to Know one Spark of its Beauty within our Self.

4 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
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. The transformer brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
