5 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 5 raises the Intention of Empowerment. We found the Pillars for Faith to stand by defining the borders and parameters. Tone 5 is a Force of Intelligence that lies in the Center to organize resources for their application. Tone 5 represents that Inherent thought to gather the tools that are needed before we begin the work of creation.

We don’t have to follow the thought. Though, we Know it’s the Wise thing to do.

By Divine Design, our thoughts engage the vision of a journey toward the future. In small, nearly imperceptible ways, we grow the Faith to believe We Can. One of the Gifts of Time shared by the calendar is that changes you can hardly see are the Divine Way to go. We’re intended to learn that “little things can mean a lot.” On the journey of a lifetime, it only takes a small change-of-course to end at an entirely new destination.

Flint/ETZNAB reflects an unexpected Truth with the Power to change the way we see everything. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect vision of the Truth in a reflection. Flint represents the sacred Flint Knife, used for the Sacrifice of the Heart. Flint’s Truth can cut to the bone with a New Truth, that replaces an Old Truth that is only standing in our way.

Flint/ETZNAB holds a gift of Telepathy, delivering the Truth like a Light that breaks along the path of a “lightning strike.” ETZNAB’s Truth can set us back on our heels, when the “unexpected Truth” is what we knew all along. ETZNAB holds the Power to Forge Faith to our own Truth. Flint shines a Light on the Gift of Truth.

Flint compels the Truth. And, Flint’s Truth is compelling.

Flint shares the Truth we need to know Now in a way that captures our attention. Flint feels like the static energy before a storm. Like the thundercloud growing on the horizon, positive and negative charges are separated by their own kind. Like hair that stands on end, our Spiritual Antennae are raised by ETZNAB. We know the bolt of lightning is going to strike, we just don’t know what it is, where it will strike, or what we’ll see. Flint can gather the Truth that matters and sweep away the rest.

The glyph illustrates the pyramid from the top-down view to reflect a direct transmission from Above. ETZNAB helps us see unseen thoughts that were guiding us to share the Truth of the Light.

In Flint’s Mission to share the Truth, we are tempted to act “out of character.” Though, the Truth is that what’s “out of character” IS the Truth within. On Flint, if ANYONE tries to shade the Truth it will be written on our face. Today we can ALL read between the lines. We can spare our self some embarrassment if we think very carefully before we speak. And, it’s a day to give wide berth on the road, when everyone is likely to carry out their knee-jerk responses. Flint shares the Truth that is hidden, covered up, and unexpected. Flint reveals the Truth that sets us free.

Flint’s energy builds like a storm, a little more stressful as the day goes along. We’ll know the Truth that hits a nerve or strike a chord of Truth. It can be “hard news” that hurts, but we’re really glad we know. Or, the Light that breaks can be the Truth of the Genius of a Dream we had before.

Flint/ETZNAB resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom and the Element of Air. Flint can prove that Divine Thoughts come straight out of thin air. The Element of Air represents our faculties of consciousness, thoughts, and the mind. Thoughts are electrical signals with a positive and negative charge. (We ARE attracted to like-minded people.)

ETZNAB reminds us to Breathe the Sacred Breath of Life. There is something on our mind that WE need to hear. Flint can shine the Light on our own Divine Thoughts from Above. To walk by the Truth of our Spirit into a New Life, we need to know that our own Truth is worthy to stand. Divine Thoughts are shared through the Wind by the Creator who Breathed us to Life. ETZNAB shares a Truth to change our mind.

On 5 ETZNAB “knowing the Truth” will be the Only Resource we need for EVERY creation of Right Relationship. Even when someone shares “bad news” we’re happy to know it, and we Know Love is the reason it was shared. Only Love takes the Time to share the Truth, when the Time comes to go in different directions. Sharing our Truth is the fastest way to learn if it’s “right” or “wrong.” Even when we can’t know the way Truth looks in another Time and Place, we will understand how Truth Feels. Today is an exercise about how our Truth feels. Truth can break all at once, when the relevant particles are drawn together as One Blazing Light.

Days led by Flint can feel like a psychic surgery. It’s worthy purpose to prune away the failing limbs so all our energy can be channeled to the Truth. Bonding like-minded thoughts, the Truth we need to know will be gathered for us from above. Flint’s Truth can come out of nowhere. The Elders said the way to see a Vision in an Obsidian Mirror is to “see nothing.” What we see is always our “own reflection.” When we are looking for “nothing” we can see the unexpected. The vision doesn’t show up on the glass. Through reflection, the Truth will appear in our mind. TRUTH is ALWAYS a matter of reflection. Flint can share the Truth in a way that can become an “object of affection.” We grasp Divine Truth out of left-field. Pay attention to where your divine thoughts come from. The genius may be shared over your left shoulder.

A “Ted Talk” shared a transformation of Human thought at the time of the Renaissance. Before, they attributed Wisdom to Divine Genius, an actual Muse that inspired all the ideas for creation. With the Renaissance came the “celebration of Human intelligence,” and an Intention to prove what HUMAN, on our own, is capable to do. It’s now a strange and forgotten way of life. Though, believing in the Divine Muse was once the Collective Consensus of Truth. A Truth worthy to grasp is that a whole Human body of thoughts can be turned around to change what we “think” is as plain as day.

It’s a Divine Truth we could turn back to, to expand the Love of our own Creations. We can even brag in Humility, when we attribute all the Beauty to a Divine One Above.

Flint’s Light is only the Flash of a Brighter Light to come. Flint’s Truth will create the path through the negative particles at the bottom of the cloud. A Brighter Light, hotter than the Sun will break and our Heart will be seized to the Heart of Sky.

To all my relations, may we claim the Truth is ALWAYS Divine. Every particle of Love makes a difference to see beyond an illusion to the Truth that “I’m enough.” We never know how dark a moment may be for someone else waiting in the Unknown.

in lak’ech, i am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN

I’m grateful we don’t always have to wait to know the Truth… that a Divine Creator can reach us right now. 

VISION QUEST: Day 3 of 4

We remember how it Feels when we KNOW the Truth. All the questions are answered, with or without any hard evidence.

The Daykeeper Resources menu offers a link to a Vision Quest Ceremony for the Night/AKBAL trecena. The Intention of that Vision Quest was to imagine our wildest dreams. This one is different by an Intention of Time dedicated to Silence and Invisibility to Receive a Divine Dream from Above. We are called to be the “hollow bone” in Humility to a Higher One Above. The information that’s shared can be applied in a different way for this purpose, Your Way. Vision Quest Ceremony 


In another Time and Place, working for the least return, some can’t get a day off from work. Our lives depended on it, and their families depended on the risk of working on the front lines. May we honor everyone who can’t work from home, and still work overtime. They are the “invisible angels” around us with dreams of their own.

The “Tzolk’in Field Guide” includes a Count of Days and aspects for days and the trecena.

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

Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.

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 accidens, 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

[Description of the Tone and Tzolk’in Day Sign are written by Ian Xel Lungold (MayanMajix.com). Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources, some no longer available. I’m in the process of updating Daykeeper Resources. Cherokee Astrology: Animal Medicine in the Stars by Raven Hail is a resource found in most online bookstores. ~Debra]
