THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN, A GUIDING LIGHT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Reed/BEN guides a cycle of “light,” the Divine Inspiration to create an altar within. BEN’s meaning and purpose is to Light the way for Right Relationship, a sanctuary where every member of Humanity belongs at the table. BEN’s focus is the New Generation. Through the Light of Unconditional Love, they will be drawn into the Circle of Life. Love is the link from one Life to another that completes a Circle of Love and Truth. Where we Know Love IS, we Know the Truth is Real.
Reed/BEN guides our Highest Expectations for Our Self. We don’t lead by making others measure up. Our Highest Example of Wisdom, is an Intention to live up to our own Divine Expectations. The best example of Wisdom, is a student willing to learn. Love is – Seeing and Acknowledging the Light of another Human Being. For Love to Feel True, it must Honor the Divine Truth we ALL hold within.
BEN can pour out the blessings like a “garden hose” by honoring the Wisdom of the Whole. BEN believes its own Truth. “Believe in YOUR Own Truth” is the Highest Wisdom that BEN can share.
A Perspective of Truth is different in every Time and Place. Ours is the Highest Truth from Our Time and Place. N’oj, the Sacred Gift of Knowing we are One in Divine Relationship with a Divine Reason to Be, and a Power Above that Intends the Balance of Divine Justice beyond human dreams.
Flint/ETZNAB is a Light of Truth from Above. ETZNAB is the stirring of Truth, like static electricity that builds in a thundercloud. The glyph illustrates the view from Above at the top of the pyramid, where we can see “all that is” and “all that is not” the Truth in a crystal reflection, “As Above, So Below.
When we count our blessings in the Light of an altar we Know the Truth of a Divine Provision. If we can believe that’s the Truth Above, we can stand on it as the Truth Below. The Divine Truth is, we can “Thank God for ALL Things.” With the Wisdom of a student, Flint helps us Believe our own Truth. The “earth magic” of the Jaguar is gratitude. When we believe that every experience can be turned into a Divine Meaning and Purpose we can keep moving on and “Let it Be.” Like the Heron and the Wildebeest, we don’t move from one realm of experience to another because something was “wrong” with our current Time and Place. They are Moved by the Scent of Water and Abundance for Life in a new field ahead.
Tone 6 holds the Intention of Flow. Through our Human steps of Intention, we create a Rhythm and Pattern, directing our thoughts to the Wisdom of the Truth. One of the Greatest Miracles of the Whole Creation is the Force of Momentum. “A body in motion, tends to stay in motion.” When “positive charges” are aligned through a Divine Communion of Truth, the 2 aligned as 1 create a Trinity of Exponential Power. When we Move on the Divine Inspiration for Love, we enter a Living Flow, a “crystal river” of Light. Dynamic developments are possible on Tone 6. Every effort we add to the Flow, will carry us far beyond our Human limitations.
Flint/ETZNAB guides the Unexpected Light of the Truth. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, referring to the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of the Truth Above and Below. Flint strikes a Spark, and Obsidian is harder than stone, forged in the Fire. Flint/ETZNAB awakens our Consciousness to the Truth of our own Gift of Telepathy. Flint is the aspect of a Divine Creator that intends for the Truth to be known. Flint is also known as Mirror. Lie to a person born Flint and you’ll see the Truth written on their face. We are Flint for the day.
ETZNAB always presents the Unexpected Truth. The Divine Purpose is to sweep all our illusions away. Today, through One Truth, the pieces can fit.
On ETZNAB we will know OUR Truth is important. No one else knows it. Our Life is the “Witness of Experience” of the Truth. ETZNAB guides us to Love our Life and everything that could be known from Our Perspective.
Flint represents the Sacred Knife that cuts to the Heart. Flint can deliver a hard truth. Though, it’s exactly when we Need to Know. The unexpected Truth is that we already knew it. Only now, we know we knew, and it can change everything we thought about our Self. EVERYTHING in our past is an “old life.” To live the new one we have to keep moving on to the Intentions for today and our faith in tomorrow. The hardest Truths hold the Fire for the greatest transformation, if we can only forgive the experience.
Flint resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom, holding the Element of Air. Flint reminds us that our thoughts are electrical signals in the Air. Not ALL thoughts that cross our mind are Ours. It’s NOT our thought, unless we claim it and follow the thought. The Element of Air holds the Power to Disseminate Divine Ideas to change the landscape of our thoughts.
Flint is said to influence us to “act out of character” – the Truth we hide so we can Belong. This is a VERY important time to Think Before you Speak. Avoid impulsive action, ESPECIALLY on the road. We can’t predict what Truth might be presented as Bright as Day. It could be a Spark of Genius. There may be a creation on the workbench whose Time has Finally Come.
Today we will Know the Truth and how it feels. Flint can be a stressful day, when the whole load is lifted at once in late afternoon. Flint builds our Inner Strength when the Truth sets us Free.
To all my relations, may we Give Thanks for Truth we can Feel within. May we give thanks for the Wisdom of All Time that can guide us to Be True to our Self. Our path will be swept clear by a Divine Provision of Love.
in lak’ech, i am another you,
Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN

6 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
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.
