7 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 7 represents the end of Human’s climb to the top of the pyramid. Flint/ETZNAB is the Day Sign that offers the view from Above. The 7th Hour of Light in the Maya lands is the Zenith Hour. Number 7 symbolizes the Power to Create our own Reality, and the Great Law of Creation, “As Above, So Below.” On Tone 7 we see “all that is” and “all that is not.” Flint/ETZNAB is the aspect of a Supreme Creator that reveals the hidden Truth. We always receive the Truth, exactly when we need to know.

The altar in the Highest Place is the Holy of Holies. Tone 7 is the halfway point in journey of 13 days that represent the 7 days and 6 nights of The Creation. The Jaguar/IX is the guardian of the sacred sites and temples as the witness to the Light of Spirit, hiding in the shadows. Through the invisible journey of Spirit we climbed to know the Truth of a Divine Mystery.

One Divine Question, the Secret Wisdom, sought by the Whole is the Meaning of Life. Human has sought the answer since the beginning of Time. Is Life on Earth an accident? Or, is it a Creation that was manifested from the Consciousness of a Divine One Above? And, if that’s the Truth, then what is the Divine Meaning and Purpose of the Experience of Life? Astronomers search for the beginning and seek to know if there’s Life beyond Earth. For all the stars above, we’re compelled to know if we’re the only ones. Consciousness is the the greatest sign I know that Life was Intended to be. Though, that still doesn’t answer the question of the reason why.

The 2nd Season of the Tzolk’in represents Human’s climb to maturity. We have a first hand experience of how Life goes through the Circle of Life. Loving the ones that follow more than we Loved our Self, we become willing to make a Divine Sacrifice. We guard the children we saw from their Divine Beginning. Higher Love is the reason we are willing to sacrifice our own Life to save them. The Guiding Light of Reed/BEN is the Divine Inspiration for our Highest Accomplishments, walking the walk of Responsibility for the Life we Dream of creating for their future.

We can still get lost in the everyday. From the down-below, the journey of Time can appear to be just one climb after another. No sooner do we think we’ve “made it,” there’s another challenge to face. We can’t see the Truth from Human’s perspective, below. Through an Offering at the Highest Altar, we are Atoned with the mind of a Divine Creator. We see “all that is” and “all that is not” from a Divine Point of View.


Tone 7 holds the Intention of Refection. We’re intended to take a 2nd Look to know the future that lies ahead. Flint/ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror that reminds us that all that we see below is equal and opposite from the view Above. The Jaguar Spirit sees itself in the Reflection on the Water as existing in both the down below and the up-above, part of the Whole of Everything.

ETZNAB symbolizes the Sacred Flint Knife that was used for the Sacrifice of the Heart. Flint strikes a Spark of Fire, and the Obsidian Mirror is volcanic glass forged by Fire. An Elder asked me to look into the Obsidian Mirror and tell them what I could see. I felt like I was put on the spot, but the Truth was, “I don’t see anything.” The Truth is hidden beyond the Mirror’s reflection. I missed the point that my own face was staring back at me. The “vision in the Mirror” is a Reflection that appears as a Vision in our own mind. The answers are hidden as a “reflection within.”

Our Reality is Created from the Truth we claim about our self. Manifesting a Divine Reality, demands us to come face-to-face with who we Intend to Be. We have to know we are enough and that we are worthy of our Heart’s Desire to manifest the Dream of our Highest Hopes and Highest Aspirations. Forgiveness is the first step to “see clearly” we are are worthy to receive the Blessing. We have to climb even Higher to manifest a compelling Reason for our Life to be.

The top of the pyramid is the place for a Leap of Faith. In the Mirror’s reflection the stairs that descend from the view below, ascend to a Higher Place. The Jaguar shares the “earth magic” to cross the threshold from the down-below to the up-above. In the first inner room is the altar to Chak Mool. The reclining one reminds us that to enter our Highest State of Consciousness we must first use the Sacred Breath. Flint/ETZNAB holds the Element of Air that fuels the Fires within our Mind and Body. The Element of Air represents our Divine Faculties of thought. We are all connected through the Element of Air, One with every Breath, we draw from the same Common Field that holds the Collective Thoughts of the Up Above, and the Down Below. Earth’s atmosphere holds the Air we breath. The element of Hydrogen is a Gift from the Universe, delivered by the Solar Winds of the Sun. Our Lives are fueled by the Elements of the Universe. The “great out there” is ever-present within the “down below.” The Vibration of our Life, Motion, and Sound is one with the “Song of the Universe” (uni-verse). Our Invisible Spirit holds a Force born of our Intentions. Our most beautiful Song is the Intention to Love.

The Jaguar altar lies in the 2nd Inner Room at the threshold of the Holy of Holies. The Jaguar’s “earth magic” to cross is Gratitude. To make the Leap of Faith in the One Above, we are instructed to Count our Blessings. If we are sincere in the effort, we create the Truth of Knowing that we could count forever and never reach the end of all the Beauty of Life there is to see. The Jaguar sees Mother Earth as the Source of every blessing. We only have to open our eyes and “wake up our consciousness” to see that Beauty is always right in front of our face, hidden on every scale. The gift of Clairvoyance is not so supernatural. It only requires us to Remember to Look. When we see our own face in the mirror, the Truth is written – what were we looking to see? Were we focused on the every day challenges that come one after another? When we Count our Blessings we can see how we always made it through, one challenge after another.

Human was created to be the Light of the World. All our Highest Hopes and Highest Accomplishments are manifested as our Truth of Reality, when we keep turning from our visions of darkness to the Truth of the Light. The challenge lies in our Human limitations. We forget what we’re looking for and what we would Love to See. The whole point of all our questions is a Dream for OUR LIFE to matter. We want to leave something behind that made a difference. We want to be remembered for SOMETHING good by the end of our Life. Otherwise, what’s the point for all the climbs beyond the challenges, especially when so many of our “hard times” were “not of our own making” – choices made by someone else. From Human’s perspective it feels impossible to turn all the darkness into Light. The Divine Truth is that there IS a way and it’s equal and opposite from every way Human conceives it to be by the limitation of our Human Nature. Our Spirit always knew the way from the beginning. We have to Look every which way to remember all the way to the end. Light isn’t created by Human Will, but by the Creator’s Divine Will of Truth from the Alpha to the Omega.

ETZNAB is an experience of “static energy” that precedes the Storm/CAUAC. The Truth of Flint is said to break through like a thunderbolt. Flint “Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash.” Flint is an Offering of Truth from Above. Flint offers the Sense of Vibration that precedes a Divine Breakthrough. Flint offers the Gift of Telepathy to Know. Flint intends the Truth and nothing but the Truth. On days marked by Flint, EVERYONE can read between the lines and the Truth is written on our face.

Flint marks a day when we’re tempted to “act out of character.” Though, what’s “out of character” is the Truth that’s been covered up within. Don’t be surprised if you say what you REALLY think, and react the way you REALLY feel. We can feel the pressure as an energy that builds throughout the day. You may feel  pushed beyond your limits. Flint comes with a warning to offer wide berth on the road. Everyone is likely to be acting out of character and “ready to blow.” The best way through is Vigilant Consciousness and choices to be an invisible witness to the Truth instead of a trigger. The look on your face is enough to share the Truth within and can speak volumes more than the words that come out of your mouth.

Flint’s truth can cut to the bone when you KNOW you know the Truth. The Truth that is unexpected is that you ALWAYS knew. You covered it up. It can be Truth you didn’t want to believe or never fathomed could be Real. It can also be a stroke of genius, an idea you had a long time ago that was Divine Genius, but for some reason, it was beyond you to claim the truth of the possibility. Whatever the Truth may be, when Flint strikes the spark, the Truth will  make Common Sense.

Preceding a storm, positive and negative charges are separated by their own kind as the heat rises. Most lightning happens within the clouds. As the polarities collect their highest powers together, they draw the “streamers” of positive energy from Earth, like static electricity sets our hair on end. Lightning breaks from the clouds when it connects with the Forces reaching below and finds a path through from the Above to the Below. It strikes the highest objects that reach from below.

On Tone 7, our Highest Power to Reach the One Above is down on our knees sharing our thanks and appreciation with the Highest One. Love is the Greatest Power in the Universe, and a Truth that can Answer every Question about Life. It’s the One Truth we’re always reaching to know, and the Answer “Yes” is the Highest Hope and Highest Aspiration for every Dream we would Love to Create as the Truth we leave behind.

That is the Jaguar Spirit, the invisible climb we can’t see until we’ve reached the “otherside.” Reaching is our most Beautiful Intention to carry on for as many climbs as it takes to Create the Truth of that Reality for the Ones that follow.

Love doesn’t happen by accident. It’s impossible to conceive it just happens, when we remember how hard it is to carry on. Down below, it’s the “hard road.” But, up above, we can see it ALWAYS WORKS, making it the EASIEST Choice we can make that never fails. On Flint we can see that “the truth we need to set straight” by Human Reason, is delivered straight from Above, when we hold fast to the Intention to Love and Forgive – because we all forget, and we Remember whenever we see the Truth of the Offering.

I wonder what Divine Truth will break through today! If we draw the Sacred Breath to empower our thinking, and Count our Blessings, it’s likely to be a Divine Truth that can lead the Easy way to every end.

love, in lak’ech, I am another you – Grateful that in Spirit we are never alone and can know we’re making every “hard climb” together


Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Great Spirit Above,

Thank you for every experience it takes for us to Know the Highest Truth Above. Thank you for the Gift of Choice and the Truth that we can ASK to Know. We pray for the Truth that makes a way, even if it’s the hard truth. We KNOW the Truth can finally sweep all our doubts and fears away, when we Remember again that you hold the Divine Answers to reach every end we Love. Thank you for the Divine Truth that always sets us free to make the wisest choices for our Self. Help us to Look to See what we need to know, here and now, to claim our Highest Dreams for the future.


I’m grateful that even when the Truth hurts more than we think we can bear, Love is the Answer that works every time. I’m grateful we only have to know One Way and that Divine Blessings never end.

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

Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.

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. Flint is the transformer that brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
