THE TRECENA OF FLINT/ETZNAB: THE BALANCE OF ZERO
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
2 Storm/CAUAC is the Light that grasps a Human heart to the Heart of Sky. The glyph of CAUAC illustrates Human in the lower right corner, a circle of consciousness within the crosswork fabric of the veil. We reached beyond our Human understanding to know the Divine Truth.
Like the Earth before a Storm, positive charges reach beyond the surface like streamers, that make our hair stand on end in the presence of static electricity. The thundercloud is created by the rising heat of the positive particles, above the negative particles below. Most lightning happens within the cloud. Lightning strikes, when Forces Above feel the Ones that reach below. It Feels the way to find a path through. We are reaching to Know. Flint shared the Divine Truth to break through the old, and sweep the new path clear for the Brightest Light to Come.
Every New Seed of our self is born free of Karma, so every One has an equal chance. We keep the path clear with Our Truth. Claiming the Truth that we won’t see the half of it, we can stand on Truth we offer as “the best we know now.” Through the Atonement, we’ll Know a Divine One will stand in our corner. One way or the other, through the CHOICE, we always find Higher Truth in the end – right OR wrong.
It won’t matter, when we Feel the Truth in our Heart that we will always Belong in the Heart of One. We will use Patience for Time to carry on. Flint/ETZNAB is the Mirror of Truth where we can look to our Self and Know when our Eyes reflect Love from the Mind of God.
Flint shares the Gift of Telepathy. Flint intends above all to Know the Truth. Those that would try to cover an intention will see the Truth written all over Flint’s face. Flint helps us see thoughts that belong to us, to be our own source of Influence. We won’t miss this chance, by just going along. We’ll see the Choice to turn any opposing thought away, and after it’s gone we’ll Remember to leave a double-blessing behind – following up with gratitude for what we learned, the gift to See the Choice, and the Divine Will to MAKE the Wisest Choice by standing back to “see what it means” to our Life.
Storm/CAUAC brings the Renewal and Regeneration of our Life Force and Spirit when it turns the Wind into Rain. Like a Blessing of Holy Water from above, the Truth soaks us through. By Divine Design, we run for the cover of Sanctuary when we see the storm on its way. In the Reflection of the Divine Mind above, when we felt the strike of Flint’s truth, a Creator sent us to the place we know we belong to see it all.
When we’re safe and warm, the Storm is Beautiful. We love to see it fill the whole sky. It’s Divine Fireworks, where there’s nothing to fear. CAUAC shares the Unbridled Freedom of Unconditional Love, to go every which way, and be Grasped by the Heart of Sky. If we always knew what was going to happen, it wouldn’t be so much fun.
On Tone 2 we add our first Human perspective to the Grand idea of creating our new life. What could WE create out of thin air? What combination of the Divine Archetypes could we be destined to become? If we ask the Divine Question, we hold the Wisdom to Know. To carry it to the “finishing” place, we step back and look at the end of our creation. We have Time. We can wait to make the Choice after we’ve Witnessed being guided by each One. Time will hold the Truth of the Vision shared for us to see and CHOOSE which ways we like the most. (Look at your own Day Sign and it’s Tone in the 7th uinal. Does the Tone number reflect YOUR core value of Intention? That is True of Sun/AHAU by every column and row, the all-in-one.
MEMORIAL TO IAN XEL LUNGOLD: 12 Sun/AHAU
It’s not his birthday, but I’m celebrating Ian’s Light of Understanding. Those born Sun/AHAU’ face the Highest Reasons to know the Truth. Earthly leaning can eclipse the Heart when love can’t be seen. They are expected, and others expect them, to shine all the time. A glorious road is the hard one. Ian was quite a Human character in his youth, and became an artisan, drawn by the glyphs to create them from silver. Then, he realized, he had charms for all the Mayan astrology signs with no way to calculate a birthday. Symbols speak to us as an illustration of thought – experience. The art of the Tzolk’in speaks to us when we draw it. So do the calculations speak to our mind. A calendar that lies within can draw us in. Ian’s last dream was to be a Light among the Legion to shine for those on the path he left behind. I know he’s here again, whenever someone remembers, and creates the Truth. Thank you, Ian, for the last offering. Thank you Michael Shore (1 CAUAC) for sharing Ian’s experience at MayanMajix.com.
The Flint/ETZNAB trecena begins the journey through the Core Days, we conceive the logarithm for the Creation of our New Life. We’ll be a little bit of this, and more of that, and in the Whole Balance we’ll hold the Spark of the All-In-One. “In mathematics, the logarithm is the inverse function to exponentiation.” (Wiki) In other words, if you know a recipe takes two of this and one of the other, you don’t have to measure every cup. You can use any measure to scale. Navigators were among the first to use them to measure a general direction, weighing variables of pitch, wind direction and speed. We don’t have to corral every stray thought when we see we’re “more the other way.” In the end, we’ll know the Divine Measure of who we are by what we choose to create.
When we grow up and apply what the Truth means to us, our Flowers begin to Bloom. We start seeing the Creation like the colors we’d choose for our Self. Our Color suits us by the way it blends in with all the colors. Our Color that stands out in ALL the beauty we see.
CAUAC resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Future – the one we are Creating to Be. When we’re in charge we can SEE the future and ADD the details as we go along. We might take a roller coaster ride that turns us around, but it will be all part of the Divine Game of reaching back to the beginning of Love.
CAUAC restores our youthful enthusiasm. If we hold a Power to Create, we could do some BIG things with it. ESPECIALLY, when we’re reaching to see things from so many Divine Points of view. CAUAC holds the blessing of Living Water, Light holding the Movement of Spirit that we can See. Held in the Divine Flow, we can drop anything over the bridge and watch it be carried back to the beginning, before it became a cloud, and rain that fed the River of Life.
It’s Divine to be Young again and to start all over with a new set of choices. From within the Sanctuary of our Self we are sitting next to the One. Together we see all the illusions of the world pass by, wandering souls bound up in an old circle without the Divine thought to break free.
The Sun sends it’s Light as “pure energy” through particles of photons. Photons can go right through us to excite the living matter in the mind. Our DNA and our biological clock are metered by the Sun’s Light. In the Darkness of the Unknown we live by the Light of the Moon, the state of our Human emotions. It’s what we Feel First when we don’t know. We can let the fear of not knowing pass right through us and following it up by claiming the light of the One followed it through, and ushered it to the place it’s meant to be. Someone will need it to realize the Truth again.
When Earth eclipses the Moon, we shut off the light of our old emotions. Time changes things, sometimes so slowly we can’t see. Just think of how you can get stuck on something, and the best way to get free is to get up, go get a breath of fresh air, and let it go. We’ve been staring at a “challenge” we created from the past, so even when our eyes are closed – we know it’s still there, waiting for us in the light. An eclipse turns out ALL the lights so we can see “nothing” again, the Divine Place to start a future.
To all my relations, may we rest our mind by a Truth shared with our Heart – we are MORE than enough, and we always were. We didn’t know our Truth mattered so much, when everyone else was saying what we should be, what we should say and do – and what we should believe. NOW we can see no one’s Truth will ever stand like our own, when we get done with our most Beautiful Creation.
May we always expect more time that we think it should take, KNOWING we were given some extra TIME for SOMETHING. I wonder what it is?
in lak’ech, i am another you,
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle / MEN
PS. This post felt every-which-way, so I guess I’ll let it be.
THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE:
I’m grateful for Life and for Knowing the experiences that make up a Divine One.

2 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
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.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.

WAYS I’VE USED BEFORE: BUILDING THE PILLARS OF TRUTH
Keeping a daily journal throughout this trecena will offer a deep reflection to remember the transformation of this Tzolk’in round. Journal your inspiration, your Truth, and the Prophecy of your future.
You can draw a circle that is the Seed of a new creation. Within, write a dream for the future, and the Truths that will stand for the life ahead. Enter only those Truths and wishes you intend to create. When stray thoughts come your way, they will be easy to see – they weren’t included in the circle of your creation. They came from somewhere else than your chosen thoughts. Ask the Supreme Creator to bless the boundaries. Like the Mirror/Flint, any outside thoughts or intentions that would attempt to Define our Truth will only see the reflection of their own Truth.
Only enter into the circle those Truths you KNOW you believe and you Intend for a New Generation of yourself.
Sharpen your thoughts of Truth in every way you can imagine. Apply the Spiritual Tools of Vigilance, and make extra trips to the altar. Use your own Divine Authority to close the door to a Sanctuary within. Ask for Divine Intervention so your Faith can stand on the Truth of Answered Prayers. Imagine a life that could be born again, knowing everything you’ve learned the hard way… as the Truth already known and held in the Spark within. Claim the Truth that you KNOW you believe for a new Life. (You can draw flowers in there too, and life all around.)
