9 Flint / ETZNAB – “The Work” of Creation: Day 9 of 13



9 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Flint Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash… bringing things to a head to wipe the slate clean.”

Peak Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the Big Picture. It comes with a warning. There could be suffering to bear for lack of Divine Insight if we fail to follow this Common Thought of Creation.

The 9th hour ends the work day of creation. We all stand back to see what we’ve done. We aren’t inclined to look when we don’t want to see. That’s the warning. Mother Earth gave us a year to  see. Guided by 9 Earth/CABAN, in 2020 we had no choice but to stand back.

The more Love we’ve chosen Not to See, the Less Truth we see. It hurts now to see. We have to FEEL it to Know. We do have the power to see through the eyes of another. We can reach from beyond our mind through the heart. “HEART” is Human’s Highest Hand, the Power that never stops reaching to know the Cause that manifests the Divine Effects of Love.

From Human’s perspective we’re trying to fix what’s wrong with us.  Though, we’ve never seen a deal-braker that couldn’t be forgiven by at least One Human Being. Mother. Whoever “Mothered” us and saw us small enough to fit in their arms, will always remember who we really are. In Mothers’ arms, the emptiness within was swept away by Love. Through the Mother, Love was carried into our Dreams.

The Beauty of a Divine Promise is everything we reach to know. Knowing Truth multiplies our Blessings to Abundance.

Flint/ETZNAB brings us to the Point.  Another name for Flint is the Mirror. Flint and Obsidian are symbols of Fire. One strikes a Spark and the other is the Looking Glass Forged by Fire. When we want to see the Future, we have to look beyond Today. We are moving, going somewhere with an Intention for a New Life. The destination doesn’t matter. It’s how we want to see our Self.

Flint/ETZNAB shares the Consciousness of Telepathy. Our thoughts are guarded within our own Sanctuary. Though we do know Truth from fiction. Flint reveals a Truth that is covered up. Today the Truth is written on everyone’s face.

Tone 9 is all about the Completion of our Creation.  Our Spirit already felt the Truth of new, wild, and beautiful ideas. Dreams are True and Dreams lead to happiness.

2 Flint / ETZNAB – The Run for Our Life: Day 2 of 13



2 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 holds an Intention of Duality. Tone 2 is a response to the Inspiration of Tone 1 – Human’s side of a Divine Conversation. On Tone 2 we are separated from the Whole in our own realm of Consciousness. We see things from our point of view. As beings of duality, we discern the Truth by comparing one thing to another.

On Tone 2 we imagine our own way to carry out a dream. We see our strengths and limitations to imagine the possibility. On Tone 2 we consider a choice “to be, or not to be.” Mother Earth offers a natural way to see things both ways, through Time that is relative on every scale. 4 is the symbol of an “all-around” look at the Truth.

A whole year is represented every 2 days with the transit of the Moon. Every day is broken down into two experiences of 12 hours with the Moon’s cycle of tides. We change what we think over the course of a day with Time. Each day has 4 seasons as tides roll out and in. Tracking your thoughts, you can see a cycle.

By the end of Tone 2, we’ll complete the 4 mini-seasons of life for our first experience of ‘all-around” knowing. Tone 1/Day 1 is the incoming light of the Spring Equinox to the Solstice. Tone 2/Day 2 is the Fall Equinox to the Winter Solstice. This is a mini-time that reflects the Harvest and the Dreamtime of Winter.

Flint/ETZNAB offers a Harvest of Truth in the cycle of darkness (white/yellow day signs). The Earth/CABAN trecena helps us to Know.

N’oj (N’oh) is the K’iche name for Earth/CABAN, the Day Sign that guides us. The myth of N’oj is the demigod who could shape-shifter who shared the Consciousness of Knowing with Human Beings. N’oj symbolizes Identity Consciousness. We are waking up as on the Tzolk’in in synchronicity with the Living Time of Summer. The Haab calendar marks the Time for Honey to be spread all around. We have expanding Choices and plenty of Time. The beginning of Summer is Human’s “time of our life.” We will release what we no longer have to carry, hanging on until the Spring.

Flint will share an unexpected Truth we need to know. Truth is conceived by Human and Divine faculties. It took something Divine to tie the pieces together that we witnessed AND understood, yet we didn’t acknowledge it was Truth – because we just knew. Flint always makes a point. We’ll know that Comprehension is a Gift of Divine Justice for reaching to know.  Flint shares a Truth that will strike a spark as something we needed to know now. It could be a spark of genius, since the Season of Light is another Time to Dream, like Winter, only we’re dreaming in the Light. Truth and Knowing are Human’s Beginning to a very Divine End.

8 Flint / ETZNAB – Dawning of Creation: Day 8 of 13



8 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 8 is the Holy Day of the trecena marking the Intention of Divine Justice. The Maya define the Number 8 as “pure spirit.” The Justice of Harmony and Equity is the Law of the Divine Design. Our Highest Gift is knowing that our way through is equal to every other.

Every new world we create will be a reflection of the “I Am” we Aspire to Be. Our inevitable Human limit doesn’t define us. What matters is every Choice we make for the future.

Flint/ETZNAB delivers the Truth like a flash. Like static electricity before the Storm/CAUAC, positive and negative thoughts are separated by their own kind. Positive charges rise to the top of the cloud, while negative particles are gathered below. Lightning breaks when it finds a path through to the Hand that reaches to a Power Above. Truth will find it’s way to our Heart that’s willing to be sacrificed to Know.

ETZNAB delivers the unexpected Truth that is hidden or covered up. What’s unexpected is we already knew. ETZNAB holds the gift of telepathy, a Divine Resources to tell the difference between fact and fiction. We can’t read someone’s thoughts, but we know when we haven’t heard the whole story. The story is already written on Flint’s face.

ETZNAB relates to the Obsidian Mirror. We have to look beyond a reflection on the glass to see the Truth within. ETZNAB uncovers the hidden Truth to sweep our path clear of any lingering doubts. Truth is always better than not knowing, no matter what it is. We are learning to stand on our own Truth, no matter how different we may be. We will be different from all the others  that are afraid to know the Truth hidden inside.

The Maya believed that to Remember the words, traditions, and ways of the Masters of Love is to share Eternal Life in a Living Sanctuary. The circle of life is the Love that connects every generation. My Grandma Naomi always said, “You catch more flies with honey, than vinegar.” No matter who said it first, the words belong to her face. Flint is the Truth we need to see to believe in our Self. Our Truth Matters. We Honor the ones we Love when we acknowledge they made a difference for us, one way or the other. With Wisdom, all our sad stories can be turned around into something we learned.

The Time and the Season are about growing up. The Elders said the only way to succeed is with the courage to Know Thyself.

Wesak Moon & Lunar Eclipse

Sacred Ceremony from the Big Island of Hawaii

Greetings Kin,

Thanks to our Kin Elena for catching the Light  of the Moon as it completes its way across the Western Horizon from “this side of the world.”
Mahalo nui loa for the Offering to tie an ending to the beginning!

Much Aloha back to ALL the women who shined the light back together, in lak’ech, Debra

May 27, 2021, 1 Flint/ETZNAB: Just after the Lunar Eclipse, the Big Island…

4 a.m. from my bedroom window – the clouds obstructed the actual full view, but that is ok – what a powerful full moon!! I had a full moon goddess ceremony with fellow goddesses last night on the water’s edge, a burn ceremony this morning and an offering to Mama Gaia for our yearly ritual with my beloved best friend, Tosha (she is in the background of the picture).

Sending much aloha your way, and many thanks for including me in this auspicious time we share! We live in interesting times…



Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide
 for an overview of this trecena and a Count of Days that includes the aspects for each day. 

My gift for the Tzolk’in round is the “Tzolk’in Field Guide: A Daily Practice for Personal Discernment.” Volume 1 covers the first two seasons of the Tzolk’in round. The “Field Guide” is available to download from a link on the 13-day Trecena Guide Page.

UPDATED: New Resources and calculators of time are part of the work in progress on the Spiritual Tools Page. 

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

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.

[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. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]

1 Flint / ETZNAB – The Wisdom of Truth: Day 1 of 13


1 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

The next 13 days…

Flint/ETZNAB beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth along the path of a lightning strike.

Flint/ETZNAB is also known as the Mirror. Like an obsidian Mirror, Flint offers the perfect reflection of Truth. Like the Sacred Flint Knife, ETZNAB’s cuts to the Heart of a matter to reveal the Truth that is hidden or covered up. Flint’s meaning and purpose is to sweep the slate clean of any illusions that stand in the way of our Happiness.

We were “Given the Beauty” of Mother Earth to know the Love of Time to carry on. Her Beauty guided us to our own Mission to Love Back. Loving back is Seeing and Acknowledging the Truth she tells. One Life is always the sacrifice for another. We have to give up something we want, or something we don’t want, to hear the Voice that will ring the Divine Truth in our ears without any filters.

Flint/ETZNAB will deliver Truth the “way it is,” when we’re made Willing to see the Whole, the way we were created to be. The only way to Know is the Wisdom of our own experience. Flint’s Truth is unexpected. Something in us covered it up. That last doubt is the one that hurts the most, that no matter how hard we may try, there’s a stronghold like a brick wall that still won’t let us through to ALL the happiness our Heart COULD hold. The Intention of Flint/ETZNAB is to Know what it is, so the Truth can sweep the darkness away and make us Divinely Whole again.

It’s time to Move forward to create the Life a Divine Mother imagined. The only way is to apply the Truth that lies within. Mirror is another name for ETZNAB. Like the Obsidian Mirror, Flint returns a perfect reflection of the Truth. Within the Obsidian Mirror the Maya saw their future in the Reflection of their own Face. We expect the image of the future to appear on the glass, but behind the face, the Truth will be a reflection within – as the thoughts o f our Divine Imagination. We look to see what’s on our mind and in our heart. All the Gifts were given for Divine Reasons. We have to see for our Self the Reasons why we would want to hold the Gifts, and what we would do with them. The Power can be the end of us, if the Ego sees a chance to use it. Many gurus of Spirit have lost their way, when the Ego turned a divine thing to a Human end. Through the core days of the Tzolk’in round, we’ll witness the Creation of our New Life, as Beauty is drawn from the chaos by a Lightning Strike of Truth.

The Wesak Celebration falls in synchronicity with Flint’s Truth that strikes from Above. The Observance marks the Buddha’s birthday and a blessing of Light poured out from Above as a Purification  of Water. It is marked as the Full-Flowering Moon, when the Water within and without will be purified by the Truth that descends. This is the day marked for a Blessing to the Mother. The tradition is the Gift of Flowers returned to the Mother, released into the Living Waters of Life. We are made One with the Divine Mother, as we are preparing to be the Divine Mother our self, in charge of a New Seed of Our Life. May we make the Time in memorial to ALL Life, and all the experiences that lead us to become what the Divine One intended us to be. May we Love the Life that was, that guided us to be something greater. May we pray for the Balance of Divine Love. The Wesak is the High Watermark of Spirit, to take in the Light of Divine Truth.

Tone 8, the Holy Day of Transformation, Wednesday, June 2, 2021 is 8 Serpent/CHICCHAN. We will be changed by the Divine Truth we FEEL. A Light will break for us to know the Truth. For all the back and forth, it’s our Way to move forward. The snake doesn’t lose any time or ground, moving back and forth between one way or another. Unconditional Love is the blessings for either way we go. We can choose the way to learn our lessons. If you stare at the Light Long enough when it’s there, even Human eyes will still see it when you turn out the light. Serpentine Day is the celebration of the Light within… the Consciousness to See Truth, and the means to see a Divine Application. We celebrate our Duality, the Gift that leads us to SEE the Sum of the Whole. By the Light of the Highest One, we’ll find the Truth within to “error on the side of Beauty” for the Truth we can’t see, but Know by Feeling. We will feel the way, like it’s our own True North. Serpentine Day is a celebration of the Sacred Fire that guides the Highest way within.

7 Flint / ETZNAB – Road to Tomorrow: Day 7 of 13



7 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 raises us to the Balance to see “all that is” and “all that is not” the Truth. Tone 7 holds the Intention of Reflection. From the top of the pyramid we are given a panoramic view. From up above, we can see many paths leading to the same end.

Tone 7 is the symbol of the Jaguar and the journey we make together with the Spirit of the One. The Jaguar holds position 14… 2 Spirits United as One, Above and Below. Number 7 represents the Power to Create our own Reality. On Tone 7 we see what we created.

Tone 7 represents the threshold to the Kingdom of Spirit. We hold the Key. We only have to take the Sacred Breath to raise our Consciousness to its Peak Performance to Offer our Prayers of Gratitude for a Time to See and Know the Truth.

Flint/ETZNAB “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.

ETZNAB rips through the veil of our illusions to See the Truth. Like the static electricity before a Storm (CAUAC), thoughts are separated by their positive and negative charge. Divine thoughts rise to the top. Below the veil is drawn by negative particles at the bottom of the Thundercloud. Between the chaos, the Light Above knows the Truth that can find a way through to galvanize thoughts of agreement between our Mind and Spirit. Flint gives us a Reason of Truth we won’t forget, even when the veil of forgetfulness covers our eyes again.

We climbed for the Whole Investment of our Heart in the One Above. Flint/ETZNAB is the Sacred Knife for the Sacrifice of the Heart. We climbed for a Renewal and Regeneration of Love, so we could believe the Divine Truth again. We gave everything we had, leaning in to our “one more try.” One more try is the Proof we reached beyond our ego, giving up on our Self for the Reach to Know. When all our ways fell short, Love became the Only Choice. As long as we know we’re creating it, when we see an end of the Beauty in sight, we imagine how the Truth will look when it’s touched by a hand of Divine Justice.

13 Flint / ETZNAB – Ascension: Day 13



13 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 13 represents an Ascension to Higher Consciousness. CIMI guided the way by holding a image of a Life of Divine Possibilities. Through an Intention of Consciousness we recognized the chaos of change. It takes Time to see the Before and After.

On Tone 13 we reach a new horizon and see the new mountains we could climb, making Love the Truth we follow. The energy of Ascension is the 20/20 of hindsight to see a New Way. We want to try again, or start something new.

Flint/ETZNAB delivers the Truth straight from Above. Flint brings the Unexpected Truth that is hidden or covered up. ETZNAB can tear the veil away to see the Truth within… said to deliver the Light light along the flash of a Lightning Strike. The Truth of a Divine Future is Here and Now.

Flint represents the Sacred Knife used for the sacrifice of the Heart. ETZNAB’s Truth can cut to the heart of a matter. Another name for ETZNAB is Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror, forged by fire that returns the Truth as a Perfect Mirror Reflection.

Residing in the North, we receive the Wisdom of the Truth. The Element of Air holds Human thoughts and Divine Inspiration. Flint can help us see the Truth of Fact and Fiction. Flint holds the Power to change our mind. Like the static electricity before the Storm (CAUAC), thoughts are separated by their own kind.

Like a thundercloud, the Fire of Divine Inspiration generates the heat to rise to the top. The negative particles fall to the bottom. Flint is the Truth that finds a way through, when the “sum of the whole Truth” is brighter than all the darkness we’ve seen. When Flint’s Truth strikes, we’ll see the Light.

6 Flint / ETZNAB – A Dream of Belonging: Day 6 of 13



6 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

It’s Time for Human Being to carry the Light of Truth. The Wayeb presents a Time to turn to the Sanctuary within for the Light to lead the way. We are the shining star, left to share our Light in all directions. We were born with the Heart of a Divine Mother. It’s Time to see the Power of the Spark to manifest our own Light.

Tone 6 is the Peak Tone holding the Intention of Flow. Tone 6 represents the Truth we learn on the way. As the “the work” of Creation begins, we see better ways. We establish a rhythm and pattern through a system of movement to create an Unseen Force of Momentum. Now there’s a higher end in sight. We want to see just how far we can go. The energy of Intention on Tone 6 is compared to a Great Athlete, where performance takes on the Beauty of the Art.

We engage our longest stride, running toward the Leap for Love. Tone 6 reveals the Power of a New Way to claim the Higher Ground of Love.

Flint/ETZNAB can change our mind, delivering a “flash of Truth.” Like struck flint, ETZNAB shares the Divine Sparks of Intelligence. “By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away.” The glyph illustrates the pyramid from the view Above. ETZNAB shares the Highest Truth we need to know.

Flint’s Truth can cut to the bone. The Elders say that the road to Higher Consciousness requires the courage to see our Self. The Truth may hurt, but we will be glad to know when it opens a new way to live. ETZNAB delivers the Unexpected Truth that was hidden or covered up. ETZNAB is the “Obsidian Mirror,” glass forged by Fire that returns a perfect reflection of the Truth. The mirror’s reflection shares the “Truth that is,” including all the Truth we think we covered up.

Like the static electricity before a Storm (CAUAC), positive and negative thoughts are gathered by their own kind. The Light of Truth shines brighter when all the pieces are drawn together that we ALREADY know. The Truth we see “all at once” is Truth we already knew. We are meant to see the Truth we Know within. Dynamic developments are possible when we learn why we didn’t believe the Truth we felt within. Were we afraid of our Highest Hopes? Where we afraid of our worst fears? Today we’ll see ALL TRUTH is a blessing when it sweeps our path clear. The Whole Truth is Light that shines the way to a Promise that proves the Truth of Love.

12 Flint / ETZNAB – A Reason to Love: Day 12 of 13



12 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 raises the Intention of Understanding. 12 is the symbol of Human, the Being of Duality Below, guided by the “Only One” Above. When Human uses more than Reason to count the Numbers, we’ll know the Meaning of the symbols. Symbols add up to convey a Divine Reason for Time in synchronicity with an Event of Knowing.

Tone 12 is the day that Truth is moved from the Head to the Heart. We have to see the Truth more than once to even consider any value worth knowing. We expect Truth to be part of our common experience. We need more than one event to make the comparison, or to consider that this will be the way things work. Comprehension is carried out by the Divine Agreement that Truth is always worth knowing. We add Light to Love when we share the Truth. Opening our Heart to reveal the limitation, always creates an Opportunity for Love. Putting our heart on the line is the sacrifice to claim the Truth of Love we’ll feel.

Flint/ETZNAB is the Mirror that reflects the Truth. In every Obsidian Mirror, the Vision we see is always our Self. The Truth we look to see was created within. Flint is the sacred knife used for a sacrifice of the Heart. The glyph illustrates the pyramid from Above. Flint is a Light of Truth that breaks all at once.

ETZNAB delivers the “ah ha moment” straight to the Heart out of nowhere. Vigilantly conscious of our thoughts, the “ah ha moment” wasn’t the first time we knew it. It’s the first time all the pieces come together as One Light. Flint shares the Experience of How Truth can Feel when we’re afraid to know it.  We’re afraid to wear our heart on our sleeve for good reason. It’s an offering that hurts when there’s no sacred exchange. Flint can raise us to Believe that Truth is always Divine. Even when it hurts, the pain will go away and in offering to Forgive, we’ll be Grateful for the way that Truth makes clear.

There’s Times we need the Truth right now and don’t have Time to learn. The Divine Provision is the Light that breaks through from Above. Flint is said to deliver the Truth along the path of a lightning strike. It’s unexpected. You don’t know where the Light will break, but you can feel something is about to break loose. When we reach the end of Human limits, we really need to know a Divine Light WILL Break to see our way through.
