11 Flint / ETZNAB – Ascension of Consciousness: Day 11 of 13



11 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Flint 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.”

The 13th uinal of the Tzolk’in round is an Ascending Light of Truth, one last climb through the darkness of the Unknown, to know the Truth of Higher Ground. We were given the Eagle’s Vision as a reference, the Spark of Light that shines for us at the Beginning, before we’ve seen the next end. We’ve Seen that we can See the end, when we reach for the Highest Truth we can know. We will ALWAYS know the Highest Truth that answers every question about who we are, and the reason our Life was meant to be… when we Turn to the Highest One to Know.

We’re ALL making our own journey through the darkness of the Unknown.  We wish we could turn to one another for the Truth of Love that creates the Still Waters Within. Though, they are reaching just the same. One Truth is only known to the One Above, the Creator that manifested our own Divine Design. We can stand on the Truth when we Know the Truth Only Known as a Divine Offering from Above. The Creator’s in charge of revealing the “Before” and “After.”

For every Human limitation we can see and offer to the One, the After is manifested instantly by the Atonement of the Offering. When we reach to know the Truth, at any cost to our Heart – we know we’ve made the Whole Investment, we risked our Heart to Know Thyself. Miracles happen when we reach our limit. When we have “no way of knowing” and we really need to know the Truth – when we FINALLY turn to the Source of Light – we will Know. There won’t be a reason NOT to see the Truth we Know Within.

Flint/ETZNAB is the Day Sign holding the Truth that reaches the Heart. Flint’s Truth is unexpected, truth that was covered up. Though, when we see the Light, we’ll know we witnessed all the pieces and parts along the way. We may have even thought once or twice. Sometimes the Truth has to be repeated to Remember our First Light. ETZNAB brings the Truth to sweep our path clear of karma, delivering us into the TRUTH of a New Way.

Tone 11 Mirrors Flint’s Intention to deliver the Highest Truth from Above. Tone 11 tunes us in to a Higher Frequency of thought. On Tone 11, the priest climbs to the Highest Altar with the Offering of Truth claimed by Human on Tone 10. The HIGHEST TRUTH is knowing there is ALWAYS Truth, yet higher than we can ever claim to see. Offering our Highest Truth, we let it go for something more beautiful, when we Hold the Wisdom of Unconditional Love.

4 Flint / ETZNAB – Light for the Future: Day 4 of 13



4 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

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

Tone 4 raises the Intention of Stability, related to the cube, the most stable of all forms. Our Intention for Creation is a Divine frame of mind – the Dreamer that Believes in the Dream. In the 4th hour of Light the Maya arrived at the field of corn. They surveyed the field for the work at hand to conceive a strategy toward the end. The Maya conceived the meaning of Time by the thoughts that were Common to the Whole.

The way to apply the Gift to our Creation of Love is to establish some “rules of the game.” You need a strategy to think higher thoughts, a Truth you can turn to, to lead the way. We need a Cause that leads to a Divine Effect.

By Divine Design on Tone 4 we realize the Truth that can stand as our foundation for a direct course to Love.

Flint/ETZNAB is the Day Sign that sweeps the path clear by a Divine Truth that strikes like a bolt of lightning. ETZNAB shares a Gift of Telepathy, knowing the Truth within. ETZNAB’s leading intention is to reveal the Unexpected Truth that’s been Hidden or Covered Up. We ALWAYS learn something we didn’t know on Flint/ETZNAB. And, the unexpected Truth reveals we knew it all along.

Pay attention to your thoughts and “how the Truth feels” on ETZNAB. You can connect with your own gift of telepathy and knowing. We always know the next best step forward, when we don’t have to think about it. We only have to learn that when we “don’t know” what to do, that means – wait until you know. On 4 Flint/ETZNAB, we WILL know we WILL know, when the Truth that strikes is Truth we “just knew” without any hard evidence. We were all given the same gifts in Harmony and Equity. The issue is our Human’s fear of the Truth. We don’t believe our own intuition if the Truth seems “too good to be true” or Truth “we’d prefer NOT to know.” Understanding is really a matter of being honest with our self. Our thoughts and feelings are Common. We DO understand. We have to choose that too.

Flint resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom and the Element of Air that relates to thoughts and the faculties of Consciousness. One Truth can change our whole perspective. We’ve seen the Truth. When we are the one that is creating the cast, characters and whole scenario of our “dream of life” – chances are good, we imposed Truth from our own Time and Place as the Highest Truth for another. On Flint/ETZNAB the Truth and the Whole Truth is an imperative. Flint is a Day Sign that leaves an impression. The Truth changes our mind.

10 Flint / ETZNAB – The Light of the Scion: Day 10 of 13



Greetings Kin,

10 Flint / ETZNAB

Flint 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.

Tone 10 raises us to the Manifestation of the Truth. What we have focused on and discerned as the Truth is given the legs to stand. Number 10 illustrates the Power of 2 Hands working together as One. When our Intention is aligned with the Highest One, and we KNOW our Heart has reached to Know the Truth, we will be grasped by the Truth from Above. We only need One Truth that matters to see the Truth that’s Real, the Truth we witnessed all along.

Manifestation always presents a Challenge. We have to claim the Truth. The Challenge presented by 10 Flint/ETZNAB is swept away. We see the Truth with crystal clarity, all-at-once. Another name for ETZNAB is the Mirror. Like the Obsidian Mirror, the Truth lies within the Reflection of our Self.

Once, an Elder told me to look into an Obsidian Mirror and tell them what I could see. I had the sense I was “on the spot.” But, the Truth was, “I don’t see anything.” (That was all they had to say about the Obsidian Mirror.)  I tried again later, looking at the Mirror from my left peripheral vision. I was distracted by my thoughts, until I realized – the vision isn’t in the glass. The Truth appears within Common thoughts.

Flint/ETZNAB holds the Gift of Telepathy, the Truth we know in a Flash, like geomagnetic energy that gathers up all the particles of Truth that go together into One Bright Light. On days led by ETZNAB, we can read between the lines and the Truth is written on our face.

It’s said to be a day when we’re tempted to act “out of character.” Though, that’s the Truth that’s held within. ETZNAB reveals the Truth that’s been covered up, and like the Sacred Flint Knife, cuts to the heart of the matter. You never know with Flint what the Unexpected Truth will be. It could come as a shock. It could feel like Truth that cuts to the core. Or, it could be a stroke of Divine Genius from the One Above.

3 Flint / ETZNAB – A Reincarnation: Day 3 of 13



3 Flint / ETZNAB

Greetings Kin,

Flint/ETZNAB is the Unexpected – Our Own Truth sets us FREE.

A New Life begins with the first step of each New Intention. We’re beginning another climb. Did you see a mountain? Tone 3 is the Divine Communion of the Sacred Trinity, when Human is willing to step beyond the doubts and fears to stand on Truth we saw in a Dream. We are guided by Divine Agency in the 10th uinal of Manifestation. We remember the Choice can only have a Divine Effect, when we reach for the Highest End for the Whole.

Tone 3 holds the Intention of Movement. A New vibration is born through a New Movement that holds its own Reason “To Be.” Most of our human movements are for reasons we fulfill automatically, like going to the kitchen. We don’t make many waves doing that. When we move by Intention – our Spirit is Moving. The Truth of our Intention creates the Spirit’s Sound in the Universe – vibrations of greater force, tone, and higher frequency – “louder” than going to the kitchen. Today we hold the Power of Trinity to create the First  Sound and the Life of our Dream. The Right Foot is a symbol of the Power of Purpose… the “leading” step.

Flint/ETZNAB sweeps our path clear. There is a stone in the way that we don’t see, but we will Know when it’s gone.

Flint/ETZNAB is a “lightning strike of Truth,”  always unexpected and always EXACTLY what we needed to know, that we didn’t know we knew. ETZNAB is the “static electricity” before a  storm. Something’s up in the realm of Spirit. Flint is the symbol of the Sacred Knife used for the Heart Sacrifice, and the Obsidian Mirror that returns the Perfect REFLECTION of the Truth. The answer lies behind the face,  and opposite of what we are thinking.

Both Flint and Obsidian are forged by Fire. Flint holds the Intention of TRUTH and Our Truth will be known, and it will Move us. Flint is also called Mirror. The Truth is written on our face. Flint stirs everyone up to “act out of character,” though, “out of character”  IS the Truth we didn’t think was worthy to share. By the End of today we’ll Own our Truth whether it came out of our mouth, or makes a path through our Conscious thoughts. It might be a “testing day” – remembering we’re all One in the Same Experience. Forgiveness is the Key we hold to pass the test. No matter what, we will use it.

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.
