8 Flint / ETZNAB – Dawn of a New Creation: Day 8 of 13



8 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 is the zenith hour of Light, holding the Intention of Divine Justice. The Maya define the number 8 as “pure spirit.” Tone 8 begins the transformation phase of the trecena. In the Justice of Harmony and Equity, our Heart’s Intention for Love to be will be carried to Higher Ground where we can See and Believe.

Tone 8 presents a Truth of “pure spirit” that changes us. We’re changed by a Truth Seen that can never be Unseen again. We will never see things the same way again. Our Intention was a Dream for the Future on behalf of the Whole and the Ones we Love that will follow in our footsteps.

Flint/ETZNAB “Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash.” The glyph illustrates the peak of the pyramid as it’s seen as a reflection between the above and below. Flint strikes a spark. ETZNAB is also related to the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of the Truth.

ETZNAB is a Day of Knowing our Own Truth. Though it will be unexpected, we’ll know we knew it all along. ETZNAB’s meaning and purpose is to sweep an illusion away from our path. Like the Sacred Knife, Flint’s Truth can cut to the very heart of a matter.

Flint holds the power to see beyond the surface. Flint shares a gift of telepathy. Pay attention to how you can read through the lines. So will others hear beyond your words. It’s said that Flint can present the temptation to “act out of character.” Though, it’s only Truth we were covering up. When the Truth Breaks through like a Light Hotter and Brighter than the Sun, we won’t have to question what’s as Clear as Common Sense.

By the Aztec Haab calendar count, 8 Flint/ETZNAB is the Year Bearer for this 365-day cycle. The Haab represents a planetary experience. By that count today marks a Truth meant for the world to know. 8 Flint/8 Flint marks a Truth of Divine Justice that will sweep an illusion away for a New Life to begin.


ETZNAB resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom. Holding the Element of Air, Flint relates to the mind, our thoughts, and our faculties of consciousness. To day we are meant to See that WE KNOW. This is a Day to Know Thyself. Flint can illuminate the doubts that lie in the shadows, that no longer make any sense when they are out in the open. Our greatest fear may be a danger we pulled out of thin air. Or, it could be a stroke of genius about an old dream that was always meant to be.

On ETZNAB we are reaching to Know the Truth beyond an illusion. By a Divine Justice we WILL See the Light.

ETZNAB’s Truth is unexpected. It can be a “hard truth” or a “happy truth.” Though, whatever Truth Flint brings it is the Truth we needed to know NOW, and it’s Truth that will set us Free.

This is a day to offer forbearance and wide-berth on the road. Energies can be edgy on Flint, contributing to an urge to strike out. This is a good day to Know your own Gift of Telepathy and Intuition. Remember how Truth feels. It doesn’t leave any questions. When you are torn between one thing and another, you haven’t arrived at Your Truth.  Tracking our thoughts we may see the Truth of a Fear that’s swept away – by the Truth of a Divine Provision.

To all my relations, may we remember to Breathe and Be Breathed by God. May we Give thanks that the Promises of a Divine Creator are always the Truth. May we Remember the Highest Truth is beyond all Human imagination… Love and Beauty shared from Above, without any conditions. May we give thanks that the Truth of God’s Love always sets us Free to Create our wildest dreams.

in lak’ech, i am another you

8 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)


Galactic Tone 8:  Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eights carefully weighs all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement ‘as above, so below,’ from simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation, some eights are ‘neat freaks.’

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.
