THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK GUIDES A WAY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 carries out an Intention of Understanding. A gift of Retrospection draws “disassociated parts into a new functioning whole.” Tone 12 draws an experience to its Conclusion. The Understanding of 12 is Truth that is taken to Heart.
Deer/MANIK has inspired our Mission by sharing the Spiritual Tools that will be our Divine Provision for everything. On Tone 12 the Intention is to Conceive the Divinity of our Consciousness to Comprehend the Truth of the Way. Our most Divine Gifts are Common, given in Harmony and Equity with the Whole. In a worldly reflection, Human values most what is rare. It goes against our mind of reason for “common” to be “special.”
The Elders impressed the importance of “tracking the mind.” The “common” thoughts hidden within is the road we travel without an end in mind. They don’t lead anywhere without an Intention to know the Truth. Our Greatest Spiritual Tool of all is a Power to Direct our thoughts toward any end of Truth we want to Know. It’s only matter of Being Conscious enough of a Divine Relationship to Remember to ask the Questions.
The most important of all Questions to ask is for our Faith to be turned into Believing in the Truth of a Supreme Creator of Unconditional Love. From One Answer, we can know the Meaning and Purpose of ALL Things. That’s a Spiritual Tool that will always lead to a Miracle of Understanding. A Divine Light of Consciousness within us, part of our Divine Design, holds the means to Conceive the Light from the Darkness. When we imagine “what could be” in the future, holding Faith in a Divine End, a Power Above will carry out our most Sacred Choice to Love. The Elders say, “It’s not if you will do it, but will you Remember?” When we remember the Power we hold at an altar to call upon a Divine Power that Answers, an altar will become our most important place to go. A New Life can start with every Sunrise, asking a Supreme Light of Creation to lead our way.
Flint “beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash.”
Flint/ETZNAB guides an Intention of Truth, “the Whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth.” ETZNAB forges a Light of Truth within our Self, like Lightning, Brighter and Hotter than the Sun. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of Truth. The energy of ETZNAB is like the static electricity before a Storm (CAUAC). Particles charged by positive and negative electromagnetic energy are swirling in the air, drawing like things into alignment. In the thunderclouds before a storm, the Earth produces “streamers” of positive particles that anticipate the magnetic forces above. They reach like plasma for a Higher Force of Power Above. Meanwhile, the rising heat carries the positive charges to the top of the cloud. A Power Above feels the streamers reaching from Below. Lightning breaks when a Positive Charge finds its path through the negative particles at the bottom of the cloud that will reach to grasp the streamer Below to ground all it’s Power Between Heaven and Earth.
The glyph illustrates the top of the pyramid from a Heavenly perspective. Flint carries the Light of Truth from Above to the Below.
Comprehension is the Grounding of our Power of Truth and Knowing. We can have lots of beautiful and wild ideas that never get off the ground, because we don’t Love them enough to invest the Time to think about them, or reach to know more about how we would carry them out. It’s the very same with the creation of any Right Relationship. We think we care. Yet until we Feel the Truth of Love, we’ll never reach beyond the Comprehension that it sounds like a good idea. We think we agree with it. It’s NOT our Truth until we FEEL it to KNOW IT, and what the TRUTH of anything will COMPEL us to do something about it. Love will always compel us to Know More of the Truth with every new discovery.
That is the Planetary Intention of the Haab calendar by the count in the Northern Hemisphere. 9 Earth/CABAN intends to deliver the Whole Divine Truth about our Meaning and Purpose to Live and Be as One on Mother Earth. 9 symbolizes the completion of a Divine Trinity of Trinities, 3+3+3. 9 is a Divine Number with many exponential properties and values. Every factor of 9 repeats itself within the numbers. 9 can be expressed as a symbol of exponential value as 3 x 3. As a symbol, the “x” is an unknown exponential value of multiplication, illustrating the exponential Power that is created when a Trinity Below – Human’s Choice of Divine Will… and a Trinity Above – the Creator’s Will for an ending of Divine Justice, when these 2 Divine Truths are realized and applied together, we could ONLY conceive a DIVINE Power of Love. We are MOVED by the Truth when we see the Light of the Way to a Dream for Love on Earth. God will hear our prayers, and the All-In-One God of ALL our Divinity will break through with One Path that reaches to grasp all the streamers, drawing them as One to the Heart of the Sky. Knowing We Can, We Will.
Flint/ETZNAB resides in the North. Through the Element of Air, Flint relates to the electrical thoughts exchanged through the Common Element that connects Humanity through every breath. ETZNAB symbolizes the “fire” of Electricity in Divine thoughts. Flint strikes a Spark and Obsidian is stone forged by Earth’s Fire. ETZNAB is the Spark within us To Know. Days influenced by the Element of Air, stir our thoughts and can change our mind. Air holds the accelerant of Oxygen that causes matter to burn hotter and faster. Through an Intention of Divine Faith, a new Understanding of our own Truth, can be forged as the Light for our way.
Flint/ETZNAB is a day of building energy, like static electricity. It can feel like an edgy day – trying to understand, exactly, what we’re feeling. We may have a lot of Truth on our mind that makes sense, yet each one in itself doesn’t hold enough power to actually move us. Yet, we feel like we need to do something. If you track your thoughts, it is the friction that precedes a personal breakthrough. Pieces and parts of Truth, when seen together through a particular filter or perspective, suddenly draw the Whole Picture into focus. We can witness the Divine Design of our Spiritual Tool of Consciousness, if we pay attention.
Flint always delivers an Unexpected Truth, yet it’s Truth we knew all along. We were either hesitant to stand on it, because it was just a feeling. Or, it was a Truth that would require us to do something we’re afraid to do, so we tried to ignore it. The Gift of Flint is sharing the Truth that WE KNOW THE TRUTH. Whenever we asked the Elders to explain a teaching in further detail, they would often say, “The Answer is in the Question.” I hated that. Why can’t they just tell us? Now, I consider it one of the greatest teachings of all.
We don’t ASK a question unless we already had an idea or a thought about something. We aren’t REALLY asking for an Answer (most of the time). We’re really asking to see if someone else’s answer might confirm our Own Answer. We are asking for worldly validation – not really the answer to the question. We ask without tracking our own thoughts, to know WE ALREADY KNOW the Answer. And sometimes, the most important answer is not in the question, but WHY DID WE ASK? Why was it a Truth that was conceived as something important for us to know. Our Mind is a Miracle of Divine Design, holding endless adventures and possibilities of Wisdom.
We are learning how to use it for a Divine Meaning and Purpose. Following thoughts of the Truth and Power of Love, a path of Beauty will fall before our feet.
ETZNAB is known too present a temptation to ‘act out of character.” Though, it’s all part of getting down to the Truth. “Out of character” is the Truth we REALLY believe or feel, and do everything we can to cover it up – because it doesn’t feel like it goes along with the Whole. We can be presented with a situation where the very last thing on our mind will be to “go along with the whole.” We’ve had something to express about the Truth for a LONG time, and on Flint it can be VERY HARD not to say it or do it. The Flint or Obsidian Knife is the Sacred Implement for a sacrifice of the Heart. ALL of us will be drawn to the limits of hiding our real Truth. Under the aspect of Wisdom in the North, this is a day to offer wide berth to others and to our self. ETZNAB’s Intention for the Truth is to wipe the slate clean.
Today we can know how our Truth feels when Flint makes it’s point. Flint offers a Truth that “cuts to the bone” to hit its mark. Through a Gift of Comprehension, all the irrelevant questions are swept away by the One Truth. Once we KNOW our own Truth, we cease to ask the same questions. We have all the evidence we need to see it in a different way from this point forward. Flint is the Truth that once seen, can’t ever be Unseen again.
There’s no way to predict what Truth Flint/ETZNAB may present through its Flash of Light. It could be a “hard truth” we needed to see. It could be a comprehension of Divine Love like we’ve never known. It could be a stroke of Divine Genius, a Dream we had long ago could reappear like a treasure, perfect in every way from the start… like, we ALWAYS knew that was a good idea. Flint will sweep away the illusions that veiled the Truth of the past.
To all my relations, may we apply our Spiritual Tool of Vigilant Consciousness to track our thoughts. May we apply the Wisdom of Patience to think before we speak. Our Truth isn’t everyone’s Truth to know, but for us alone to realize and Feel the Truth of a New Way. A Supreme Creator holds the Authority to Bring Truth to Light. We don’t have to tell anyone everything they’ve done wrong that now we are going to forgive. We’ll stand like the Deer in our own Truth that will help to guide Our Way by the examples we see. We don’t have to cast a shadow when we stand in the Truth that we are all in different places on different paths, and yet we are ALL Divinely Reaching to that same destination of happiness.
May we Love the Truth, even the “hard truth,” for its Power to Lead us in a Wise direction. May we comprehend the Truth that a Supreme Creator wanted to KNOW Our Truth. We are the only one who can share the Truth, as it is Felt and Known from our Time and Place. A Supreme Creator wanted to know the Truth of every Time and Place. Life is important for a Mission to Express the Truth at an altar where we worship the Alpha and Omega, Truth from the Beginning to the End.
May we Give Thanks for the Truth that Always and Divinely sets us Free.
HAPPY SUMMER SOLTICE! HAPPY SOLAR ECLIPSE, moving us into the Light of Cancer, the Mother that holds the Authority of Home!
in lak’ech, i am another you

12 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
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: Mirror, flint. Ability to discern deception and mirror it back to the other. A catalyst for change through this ability. When used properly, harmonic resonance can be the result. If you take on anothers issues through the mirror, the result will be anger, grief and misunderstanding of purpose. All issues will surface and be mirrored in this earth walk. Energy comparable for teaching, leader, philosopher, writer, observing the mass consciousness evolution in some manner. 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.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: My gift for a New Tzolk’in Round…
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the 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.
ERRATA: I discovered an error in the Peak Tones listed for the Deer/MANIK trecena (our next journey). A corrected “Revision 1” was uploaded to the 13-day Trecena Guide page on June 6, 2020. If you downloaded the Field Guide on an earlier date, please download the corrected version as a replacement.
