5 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 5 holds the Intention of Empowerment. The Maya discerned the meaning of the Time by tracking the thoughts that Humans held in Common during the hours of the Day. The 5th hour of light followed the 4th hour, when they arrived at the field of corn and surveyed the work at hand to establish an order for the work of the Day. In the 5th hour they gathered all the tools that were needed to carry out the task. If we’re creating a recipe, we share a Common thought to gather all the ingredients to know we have everything we need. We don’t have to follow the thoughts that were written within as a Divine Order for creation. Though, we do tend to follow when we intend to create the best birthday cake for someone we Love. Love is the Guiding Light for our Highest Creations.

Flint/ETZNAB offers the Truth from a Higher Perspective to see a Divine Meaning and Purpose. The Offering of Truth from Above is a matter of Knowing “We Can.” With every step/tone we rise to a Higher Meaning and Purpose to see the Truth of a Creation manifested from the Consciousness of a Supreme Lord of Creation. The Creator designed the Movement to manifest Human’s conception of Time. The Creator is with us through every hour and every day, guiding us by a Divine Perspective as the “lord of the Day.”

Flint/ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror that reflects our identity and the power we were given to discern that there is a Divine Meaning and Purpose for our Time and Place in the Universe.

The Maya illustrated the Truth of Time and the Creator’s Intention for us to Know the Truth at the peak of every climb. The Creator’s Truth stands on every scale. Each 13-day trecena represents the climb of Creation as the 7 days and 6 nights of creation. We carry out the first 7 steps to the place at the top of the pyramid, where we realize we are creating our own Reality. When we the top, the Hand of Divine Agency can carry us beyond our Human limitations.When we follow a Divine Order and the Truth of the Higher Way offered from Above, we apply the Creator’s Truth to reach our highest end.

The Creator is the all-in-one and the Lord of Time on the Highest Scale. “Truth” is written within the roots of the Greek words Alpha and Omega. To reach our Highest Potential of Unlimited Possibilities, we were given the power to Know the Truth. Flint/ETZNAB reflects the Creator’s offering of the Truth that is written within. ETZNAB, the “lord of today,” intends for us to know the “truth and nothing but the truth;” and, to know that Truth was offered from Above.

Flint “Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash.”

The Creator’s Truth is the last Word. The Word is the Sword of Truth. The Creator’s Truth can’t be changed, no matter how the Divine Truth is expressed by any human language or tradition. The Truth was written in the Universal Language of numbers, as math and geometry, and as symbols for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd that represent the hierarchy of a Divine Trinity. The Creator came first. A Being of Duality came second. And, the Divine Trinity is created through Human’s Choice to follow the Light and the Truth that is shared from Above.

Flint holds the Power to change the Truth from Human’s “static perspective” of “black or white” and “good or bad” to a dynamic perspective. There is a Divine Time for every purpose and for every state of being. The Truth expands through Time with every Human experience. The Truth speaks for itself, when we realize a “blessing in disguise.” The Up Above and the Down Below share a perfect reflection of the Truth. Sometimes it’s easier to see when we look every which way, from upside-down to backwards. The Truth stands as the Truth on every scale of perception.

There are two reasons why Humans explore the Universe. The first reason may have been to discern the Truth of a Creator. Now, we hold an equal intention to find “new frontiers” we can conquer for the potential of all the resources we could discover and apply to Human’s advantage. If you think about it, the Discovery of a Creator would be the most Divine Answer for everything we need to carry on.


Flint/ETZNAB shares the Unexpected Truth that was hidden or covered up. The Truth is covered by the veil of our Ego. There are some Truths we don’t want to believe. And, other Truths we can’t even imagine to believe. On Flint/ETZNAB the Creator delivers the Truth that cuts to the heart of a matter. The Sacred Flint knife was the implement that was used for the sacrifice of the heart. Flint can shatter our perceptions of the Truth so we can accept the Truth of Every Possibility. What’s “unexpected” is that we already know. We knew it all along, but we covered up the Real Truth we knew within.

ETZNAB reveals the Truth of our Gift of “Telepathy.” Only when we realize everything we know, it doesn’t look supernatural. The Truth is always Common Sense. ETZNAB offers the Light for us to read between the lines. Holding the Highest Intention for the Truth, ETZNAB is said to tempt us to “act out of character.” That’s when we share what we REALLY think, instead of the Truth we covered up – Truth that’s unacceptable for Human reasons.

Like the static energy before the Storm (CAUAC), positive and negative thoughts are separated by their own kind. Positive particles rise with the heat to the top of the thundercloud, above negative particles that remain below. The Divine Truth is “black and white” though the possibilities are endless by their application. ETZNAB resides in the North (White), the direction of Wisdom. We only have to apply our own Truth to Know. The Power of Love was written on every scale of Creation from the micro to the macro. The Truth speaks for itself on Flint/ETZNAB. We don’t have to defend the Truth we see. If someone tries to conceal the Truth, Our Truth will be written on our face. We don’t have to defend the Truth that’s Common Sense. Today we can See the Truth that makes Common Sense, and we Knew it all along.

Pay attention to your gut feelings and your own discernment of the Truth. Today we’ll be pushed to our limit by the Truth we know and we won’t stand for any monkey business. Remember that we are all sharing the same meaning for the Time. Everyone could be “acting out of character” and we could be surprised when the Truth is spoken, that we knew all along. This is a day to offer forbearance and wide berth on the road. Once the Truth is spoken, you can’t take it back. You can never Unsee the Truth once it’s revealed.

The Divine Meaning and purpose is to sweep our path clear on the journey that leads to the end of our Highest Dream. Truth sets us free. It may cut to the heart. Though, we’ll be glad to finally know. It’s hard to guess what the Truth might be that we’re intended to know today. It could be a “hard truth.” Or, it could be a “stroke of genius” – a Divine Inspiration we had a long time ago that has finally found its Time in the world.

The energy builds through the day and can represent some stressful feelings. You might notice a Truth that breaks in the afternoon and a shift of energy that feels like a breath of fresh air by the Time the Sun is reaching toward the Western horizon. Remember how the Truth feels when you know, so you will Remember how your “telepathy” works. When you KNOW, there are no more lingering questions. You don’t need any further evidence.

May we be willing to know the Truth at every cost to our Ego. That’s the sacrifice of Humans “heart” that is the Death to our Ego, that marks the beginning for a Brand New Life.

love, in lak’ech,

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

PS. One thing I’ve learned is the Truth. We are not all the same. Not everyone has our best interest at heart.

This morning there is beauty in a thick blanket of dark clouds. There was rolling thunder and I witnessed one flash of lightning. That is a rare occasion for weather in the Pacific Northwest. In the last 10 years, I could barely count the times I’ve seen/heard that on one hand. It reminds me of the Power in all the Forces of Nature beyond Human’s control… all Unseen Powers Above. May we draw the Sacred Breath that holds the Truth and the Living Water that holds the Light. May we give thanks that the Wind and the Breath of Divine Truth can change the whole landscape of our thoughts. May we give thanks that the Truth is held in the hands of a Divine Authority, and the Divine Truth WILL BE.

Flint’s Element of Wind can change the landscape of our Life. The Truth we know today can present itself as an “Act of God.” (So, everything will be okay.)


The Highlights, Peak Energies, and Times of Synchronicity for this trecena are included on the  13-Day Trecena Guide.

The “Tzolk’in Field Guide” is my gift to download that includes the Count of Days with the aspects for each Destiny Kin and highlights for a personal practice with each trecena. It’s designed as a companion for daily practice.

Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide. to download a free copy. Volume 1 covers the first two seasons of the Tzolk’in, and Volume 2 covers the 3rd and 4th to the end of the Tzolk’in round.

The beginning is a good place to start a dedicated daily practice to record the Truth of your daily experience. When you track your the thoughts and experiences that don’t appear to mean a thing, you’re mind will be changed the next time around when the same thing happens again on the very same day. At least you’ll question the coincidence to see the Truth of Divine Synchronicity, when it happens the 3rd time – and you KNOW Time had a meaning and you were exactly where you were supposed to be.  I’ve forgotten all about miracles that happened before, until I see them happen again. That’s when you see that YOUR story was already written before you were even born.

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

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
