THE TRECENA OF FLINT/ETZNAB: THE CREATOR’S LIGHT OF TRUTH
ETZNAB reflects the Higher Intention for transformation for the 13 Days of Creation. Every day is bound to offer expanding Truth, delivered like a bolt out of the blue. ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror, reflecting the Truth within and raised by the Truth Above. The Guardian of the cycle is 13 Dog/OC. We can expect to end with a Higher Consciousness of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. That’s the Truth we’ll manifest to recreate our Life and a New World all-around.
Yellow and White “lords of the day” represent the “darkness” human’s experience in the Unknown. We apply the “Light” of Divine Inspiration (Red and Blue “lords of the day.”) We can never discern the whole Truth on our own. The Creator knows the meaning and purpose that leads to the end intended from the beginning. Seed/KAN guided us to “know thyself” to see our potential based on the Divine Design. Serpent/CHICCHAN offered the Truth of Divine Powers that are shared from Above. We were guided by the Serpent to shed our old skin so we could expand and grow.
CIMI (kee mee) is another day of the “darkness” of our unknown future. We haven’t had the time to see how the Truth will change us to manifest a new life.
Tone 9 raises a God-given intention for patience to see the Big Picture. We’re inclined to step back when we’ve “finished” a creation to see what we’ve done. CIMI comes with a warning that there could be suffering to bear for lack of insight if we skip this step. We’re happy to look when we think our creation is swell. We’re not so eager when it’s something we’d rather not see. We have to see it both ways to make “the whole investment” (9) that creates the Truth of the Higher One (10). We have to see our own limitations to know the value of the Creator’s blessing of Unconditional Love. Number 9 is a symbol of Divine Trinity x 3. The “x’ reflects the exponential factor of choices below, carried out by agreement between our Heart and Mind. The Trinity Above is the God in 3 persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Standing together, we can create an even Higher One.
CIMI: The Sign of Major Life Change
They (CIMI) undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.
CIMI’s glyph illustrates the face of death to remember that something always dies when something new is born. CIMI’s change is always a matter of “life and death” from Human’s perspective. CIMI’s Destiny is to become the Comforter for those going through major transitions – as the Midwife and the Hospice nurse. The Creator’s Comforter will never leave our side. CIMI shares the Gift of Clairvoyance to see the future.
Chaos is the sign of major change in process. It’s hard for us to put two thoughts together. We are comforted by One that reminds us, “everything is going to be okay” and, shares our blessing in the future.
The only way to change is to break down an existing body of thoughts. We asked for change, and now we’re going through it. Nothing looks the same, and all the pieces and unknown parts are up in the Air. CIMI carries the aspect of the Element of Air. We’re reminded to use our Sacred Breath. Air relates to our thoughts and faculties of discernment. CIMI shares the Truth that can change our mind to see the Truth that’s going on.
It’s our Sacred Right to make choices that lead to the Balance of Happiness that was intended to be. It takes time to see we HAVE changed. External forces may not like “the new seed” of our self. Old ways die hard.
As the sign of the Twins, we have to see our role from both sides to be wholly accountable for our side of every relationship in our life. We set the boundaries and we went along. It’s all about relationships between two. We have to accept half the blame to see what we created. Though, now we have changed, and we know we’ll never go back to the way things were before.
The one that came before is dead and gone. Seeing the Whole picture means we can still love the one that came before. This is a day to Give thanks in Memorial for the Human who suffered the Truth to create our New Tomorrow. Humans bury the dead, and the memorial is time to acknowledge the Light that burned within.
John 14:15-17 – Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit
15 If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you.
When the changes we make are aligned with the Divine Intentions for our Life, we’ll KNOW the One is always on our side. CIMI offers the White Bones to Stand and the Teeth to bite through. Using Patience to look beyond the moment, we’ll see the future too. We may not know what it looks like yet, but we know we’re creating it for a Divine Meaning and Purpose.
The chaos in the world looks like we hardly have a chance to live through a major breakdown. Return to the Sacred Breath and depend on the Truth of the Highest One – leading us to a Higher Truth of the Power of the Creator’s Unconditional Love.
Everything WILL be okay. People don’t have to like us. It’s worth the sacrifice when the change is the only way to claim our own happiness. A Divine Savior didn’t have any human helpers to carry the cross. He was scorned all the way. CIMI deals with us like a “soft hand.” It’s not so bad, knowing a Divine Spirit walks with us all the way. In the Mirror’s reflection we could see that everyone can see the change in us, or they wouldn’t bother to even think about it.
Time will heal our wounds, and we’ll be grateful for the scars that remind us of the reason we changed.
Take your Time to see how Good things seemed before, and how much Greater Life could be when we can See what we were doing. Life is worth it. We only get one chance to live it in the down-below. Remember “Who you are” and “what your heart always wanted to know” before it’s time to cross over to a place where Love will be everlasting. Remember life’s transitions are painful on both sides and forgive.
Spiritual Tool: Using the Sacred Breath
For every thought of fear that comes to mind, breathe in the Light of the One – adding a Divine Truth to your body of thoughts. Breathe out the thought that came before. Sing your song, 4 times – one to every direction in your life. You’ll reach even higher if you carry on 3 more times, to the Up Above, the Down Below, and to the Truth that lies within. The average body of thought holds 6,000 different thoughts per day. Through the Sacred Breath, we can change the balance of the Whole.
Our own rituals, myths, and sacred ceremonies were offered for us to call upon the Truth of Divine Agency. When we Speak, Move, and Create something for a Divine Purpose, we Remember our prayers. And, in the big picture we’ll know every dream of Love will be answered by the Highest One Above.
One of the miracles I experienced when I first started out was this angel doll I used for an intention to end years of waking nightmares. It took time to even think I could ask. The nightmares ended in a matter of days, and one day I woke up in a state of bliss. Nothing had changed in the world below, but that day reminded me of Summer Days when I was 10, walking along shady side walks that glittered in the Sun on my way to arts and crafts at the school that offered “summer recreation.” It was a Truth I’ll never forget. Things don’t have to be different than they are in the moment to Feel Comfort on the highest order.
I was told I needed to bury it in Mother Earth. NO WAY. Sometimes I still need to see it to remember.
love, in lak’ech – i am another you
THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE:
I’m grateful for the choice to choose what we love and to live, our way.

9 Transformer/CIMI (Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
Transformer/CIMI: Cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Transformer persons achieve goals and emotional wealth. Transformer people can become highly respected business persons. They have the ability to help others through any and all transitions with tranquility due to their spiritual strength and guidance. Communities often benefit from Transformers discipline and organization skills. They strengthen the life of pregnant women and guide them through the transitions of maternity. Establishing contact with the ancestors activates innate psychic abilities, gifts to be used as tools to assist others. Transformers can have the ability to send evil intentions telepathically, this is their undoing. From these acts they lose power, easily fall into a victim role and begin to manipulate with a vengeance. A good day to tie all loose ends.
Cherokee, Twins/ TAKATO’KA: Twins symbolize the Female Sun and Male Moon, whose union keeps the world going round. Cherokee myth has the Morning Star heralding the Sun, Venus, also being the Evening Star as representing the TWINS. The energy brings major changes all throughout life, riding the tsunamis of earthquake and upheaval, making their own waves wherever they go. They undergo powerful transformations, alternating like a flashing neon sign. The challenge is to master Balance while experiencing Chaos leading to re-birth and abundance through infinity.
