THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX – WALKING IN BALANCE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 5 holds the Intention of an Empowerment. On Tone 4 we defined the boundaries, parameters, and the scale for our Creation. We defined the matter of creation on the foundation of seeing it from all perspectives. Tone 5 holds the Inherent thoughts to believe We Can. In the 5th hour of Light, we draw all the resources together for their intended application. Compared to the center of the cube, Tone 5 is a central organizing force that takes stock of the tools and the means at hand to complete the end.
Flint/ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror. The glyph illustrates the top of the pyramid as it’s seen from Above. The top of the pyramid symbolizes the threshold between two worlds, and the Truth that all things are Equal in the Balance in their equal and opposite ways… like the ways of our Human Nature and our Divine Nature. Flint/ETZNAB extends the perfect image of Truth to See the difference between Fact and Fiction.
The Truth of the Higher One will lead us to the Light of Divine Discernment. To Know the Truth we must be willing to see the Unseen Truth and the True Condition of our Heart. ETZNAB always delivers the Unexpected Truth, the Truth that was hidden or covered up. Yet, we’ll realize we knew all along. Sometimes we’re afraid to face the Truth. We are moved by Truth and we know it will compel us to see the Wisdom we should follow. Sometimes we’re afraid of what Truth will mean we have to do. Although, you never can tell with Flint. It could be a spark of Pure Genius, an idea we’ve had forever, and on 5 Flint/ETZNAB we could finally see the True genius of it and realize we have all the ways and means to carry it out.
Flint/ETZNAB resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom and the Element of Air. Flint relates to the electricity of our thoughts and the positive and negative charges that are aligned when we use the Power of our Consciousness to CHOOSE thoughts that flow on a course toward the Light. Flint/ETZNAB is comparable to the static energy that resides above in the clouds before a thunderstorm. Our thoughts are drawn toward our Heart’s Desire to See and Know a Divine Power Above. Before the Lightening breaks, positive particles from Earth reach as streamers above, waiting for the Truth and the Light of a Way. ETZNAB creates the path for the Light of Truth to break through and claim Human’s Dreams to the Heart o f Sky.
Flint/ETZNAB holds a Divine Purpose for Wisdom and for the Truth. ETZNAB can sweep our path clear of old worn out truth that no longer serves a purpose. The Truth of an Illusion can be revealed to “sweep the path clear” for our climb of creation.
This is a day said to present temptations to “act out of character.” Though, “out of character” is the Truth we try to hide and IS the Truth within. Human’s most challenging limitation is the difficulty we have admitting we are wrong. We’re sure we will lose all faith in our self. Yet the Highest Wisdom we can Know is where we are wrong, so we can make it right. The Elders said it takes great courage to make any Spiritual Progress. We HAVE to look at our self.
Today, instead of a “hard truth” we discover about our Self, from a Higher Perspective we can see in a Whole New Way. The fact that we are capable and WILLING to see it, is the Truth of our Spiritual Strength, the investment of Human’s sacrifice to know, and Truth held in our Heart. Reaching beyond the limitations of our Ego, we can look beyond to what this Resource of Wisdom will mean to our future. In the future, when we see limitations in our Self, we’ll KNOW it for a purpose to Remember the Truth that there’s a Divine Provision for everything.
This is a Day we are given to See within with crystal clarity what is Truth and what is Fiction. We won’t need any material evidence. We will Know.
ETZNAB is a day when some caution is advised, because the whole of us will be tempted to “act out of character.” It’s a day to remember our resource of Forgiveness. When we apply the Wisdom of the Truth, we can know how we all tend to “lash out” when we’ve tried to hold back what we REALLY Feel is True. We could also see how when anyone suggests, “Today you’re going to know the unexpected Truth” – our first Human thought is to devise our defense strategy. Today we will claim the Resource is a Divine One – that Truth is ALWAYS the BEST THING and the most DIVINE thing to Know.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for the Divine Truth that we will know today. May we know that it is given at this very Time and Place, because NOW is the Time we were meant to Know. If it’s Truth we didn’t want to face, may we Remember this must be the perfect time to move on what we knew was the Truth all along. If it’s a Divine Dream or a Genius Idea – the Divine Truth will come with the Wisdom to see that THIS was the PERFECT Time for it. Any illusion we may have that we waited too long, or it’s too late now, will be swept away by our own Conviction of something we were Divinely Meant to do.
May we be prepared to Forgive our Self and Others for Truth we were afraid to share, and dreams we didn’t give our Self enough Credit to believe. We have the Wisdom to look down and remember the Truth we CHOSE to See that WILL prove this Time and Place was destined to be. Divine Truth WILL move us. May we give thanks that every Human Being that reaches to Know the Highest Truth for Harmony and Equity, will be grasped by the Light that sees the Offering to Love Back.
“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.”

THUNDER AND LIGHTNING:
This morning there is beauty in a thick blanket of dark clouds. There was rolling thunder and I witnessed one flash of lightning. That is a rare occasion for weather in the Pacific Northwest. In the last 10 years, I could barely count the times I’ve seen/heard that on one hand. It reminds me of the Power in all the Forces of Nature beyond Human’s control… all Unseen Powers Above. May we draw the Sacred Breath that holds the Truth and the Living Water that holds the Light. May we give thanks that the Wind and the Breath of Divine Truth can change the whole landscape of our thoughts. May we give thanks that the Truth is held in the hands of a Divine Authority, and the Divine Truth WILL BE.

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

My gift for a New Tzolk’in Round…
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Crocodile/IMIX trecena.
My gift for this Tzolk’in round is linked there, a Tzolk’in Field Guide that has as much about the basic aspects of each day as I could think to put into it. The directions and the elements are aspects of Universal Laws that can be known in MANY ways, through many kinds of practice. My aim with the dates for each trecena, included for the next few years, was an intention that we could have everything for a day in one place at hand, if we didn’t have a computer.
QUESTIONS TO SELF:
How can I retreat from the world for a climb of Spirit? How can I be invisible for 4 days from Tone 3 through Tone 6… our Human climb to a new Summit of Spiritual Growth? What is my Highest Hope and what am I willing to bring as an Offering and a Living Sacrifice to Give Back for the Sacred Exchange? Where am I now? And, what is the Dream in the Future for everything MY Life could be?
