MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
4 Flint / ETZNAB brings an Intention of Stability established on a new Foundation of Truth. ETZNAB, also known as Mirror, offers a perfect reflection of the Truth compared to the Obsidian Mirror.
The Maya used the Obsidian Mirror for the practice of divination, seeing it as a portal to where the Truth could be seen. Flint is said to offer Truth like a Flash of a lightning strike, relating to Obsidian which is created by lightning striking the ground.
The Eagle/MEN trecena offers the Gift of Higher Vision for our effort of Spiritual Growth. Just like a flash of lightning suddenly presents the “light of day,” so are plots hidden by darkness, suddenly and easily seen.
Nothing can be hidden from ETZNAB’s Light. It’s power is to expose what is unseen, unknown, and hidden. Flint has the power to break through illusion, bringing light to our subconscious fears, and to cut falsehoods away. ETZNAB is said to present the temptation to “act out of character,” as these are the Truths we hide from our Self. ETZNAB is a Day Sign that serves and defends the people by its own sacrifice, to sweep the slate clean. Flint is capable to restore our capabilities for discernment by offering Truth that divides Darkness from Light.
