THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN: A MIGRATION OF SPIRIT
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 holds an Intention of Duality. Tone 2 is a response to the Inspiration of Tone 1 – Human’s side of a Divine Conversation. On Tone 2 we are separated from the Whole in our own realm of Consciousness. We see things from our point of view. As beings of duality, we discern the Truth by comparing one thing to another.
On Tone 2 we imagine our own way to carry out a dream. We see our strengths and limitations to imagine the possibility. On Tone 2 we consider a choice “to be, or not to be.”
Flint/ETZNAB delivers the Truth like a bolt out of the blue. The glyph illustrates the pyramid from a perspective Above. ETZNAB is also known as Mirror, returning the crystal clarity of Truth. ETZNAB relates to the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of Truth. Both Obsidian and Flint forge the Fires of Truth – one is born by fire and the other strikes a spark.
ETZNAB delivers the Unexpected Truth for the Highest Purpose to sweep away any illusions that stand in our way. It could be a “hard truth” that sets us back on course. Or, Flint can share a “lightbulb moment” as a stroke of genius. Whatever it is, we’ll know its True, because we already knew.
ETZNAB shares Truth that’s hidden or covered up. It’s said Flint offers a temptation to act out of character. One way or another, what we try to conceal from one another is going to be revealed. It can be Truth we’re afraid to admit, Truth we’re trying to avoid, or Truth we were afraid was too good to be True. Or, ALL of the above.
Flint is the static electricity that precedes the Storm (CAUAC). It’s a day of polarities. Like a thundercloud, negative and positive energies are separated above and below. It can feel like an edgy day. We can learn the Truth the hard way through our own impulsive action, or we can be Vigilantly Conscious of our thoughts.
Flint offers a good test of our Wisdom and the Discernment of our own Truth. This is a day to think before you speak or before you take action. Tone 2 is never the day to take action, but to consider one thing or another. Flint’s Truth can cut to the heart of a matter, like the Sacred Knife. We can experience our own gifts of Truth and Telepathy on Flint. Those born Flint can read between the lines. Try to conceal the Truth from a Flint, and it will be written all over their face. On Flint we can put 2+2 together to realize, our gut instincts and hunches were right on point.
ETZNAB resides in the North, the Direction of Wisdom and the Element of Air. The Element of Air relates to our faculties of Consciousness. ETZNAB holds the power to change our mind. The realization of One Truth can change how we see everything. The Air holds the Wind and Sound of the Creator’s breath of Creation. The Element of Air represents a Truth of Divine Guidance from Above, and the Wisdom we can draw through the Sacred Breath.
Our Conscious Breath is a source of Healing and Empowerment to the mind AND body. The Elders taught us to direct the Sacred Breath to any place where we felt discomfort in the body. They also said we can allow it to go where it wants to go. One simple way to draw our whole mind and body into the moment is to just be consciousness of our breath. When we draw 3 even breaths in and out through our nose, our body interprets that everything is in order and responds with a sense of well-being. The energy of Flint can build throughout the day. Flint is a good day to “feel your own energy,” especially around sunset when Flint’s duty of Truth is over.
Think of all the ways you might use your own Sacred Breath. A Divine Creator holds the Authority over our breath of Life. Human’s breath is a Conscious Empowerment of Breath. This may be a good day to throw our shoulders back and “suck it up” and jump in with both feet.
The Elders said to listen to the Wind as the Voice of the Creator. Pay attention. Listen to words that are spoken. See the Truth you hear written between the lines. Today you can KNOW how intuitive you really are. We ALL are. Our Gifts are given in Harmony and Equity. We only have to see/hear/feel OUR Truth, to realize we’ve had this gift all along. We thought it was just our common thoughts. Once you KNOW your Gift, the Voice will stand out from the rest of your thoughts.
We can also ALL see the Truth in the reflection of an Obsidian Mirror, OR a crystal ball. You are not likely to see the image IN the object. Though, while you are looking at “nothing” a vision may appear in your thoughts. A Divine Agency is helping us to see ALL things, Seen and Unseen.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for so many Divine things to Know about our Self. We’re MORE than just flesh and blood. Our Spirit was Empowered for Divine Possibilities. May we go outside and listen to the Wind and take a DEEP breath, remembering the GIFT it is to our Life, Well-Being and Consciousness. May we take a drink of water while we’re at it. These are Divine Elements of Life that our Body Loves and that we NEED to feel Whole. May we Feel the Blessings of ALL things that the Light can pass through.
Tomorrow we will know the Comfort of our own Sanctuary. If it’s a “hard truth” we need to hear, we’ll see the blessing tomorrow and know the Truth was given to set us free. May we call upon the Wisdom of the Ascended Ones to help us remember – we are GIVEN the Truth when we NEED to know. May we RECEIVE ETZNAB’s Truth as a Divine Offering for THIS Time and Place, and be GRATEFUL for the Truth. May the Element of Air stoke the Fires within.
May we Give Thanks that we are the 2nd Creation and that God is the 1st, and final Authority over the Sum of the Whole.
in lak’ech, i am another you

2 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee: Flint Dawi’sgala)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
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.
