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.

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.

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.

10 Flint / ETZNAB – A Healing of Atonement: 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.

ETZNAB is known to do whatever it takes to drive the point home. Flint is also known as Mirror, like the Obsidian Mirror that returns the perfect reflection of the Truth.

Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. We can See a Dream that’s Real on Tone 10. The 9 completed a Divine Truth, the Offering that moves us into the Unity of the Higher One. We took in the Whole Light of Truth to Believe in the One. 10 symbolizes the Grasp of 2 hands, One Above and One Below.

There are many Signs and Symbols in the glyphs and numbers. There’s something new to be revealed by the Tzolk’in in every round. I got stuck trying to write the meaning of the days. It has to be simple to keep making sense. I couldn’t read it without already feeling a higher meaning and purpose. It wasn’t editing. Every pass was a re-write. Part of my mission has become sharing my experience that over time, numbers that have been counted and symbols that have been seen from the early dawn of Humanity are part of a Divine Inheritance we hold. We only have to Ask to Know. The Truth we want to Know is the Beauty the Creator wants to see.  A picture tells a thousand words. The memory of an experience is a Manifestation of Reality.

The Maya believe that to remember the words, prayers and songs, to carry out the traditions of the rituals and sacred ceremonies, was to Offer the Consciousness of Life to Ancestors. The Wisdom of their Consciousness becomes a Divine Provision within. The Elders say to Know the Truth we have to “track the mind.”

Flint/ETZNAB holds the Element of Air. Like the static electricity before the Storm/CAUAC, particles of positive and negative energies are separated, so the Light of the Whole can find its path through. The Lightning of ETZNAB delivers the Truth to Earth. The glyph illustrates the top-down view of the pyramid, and the Point of the Climb. Through the Truth in our Time and Place, we CAN see a Divine Meaning, more than worthy of the sacrifice we had to make to know.

ETZNAB is the sacred knife used for a sacrifice of the heart. Flint’s knife is a Truth we need to see to raise our own Truth of Divine Wisdom to Common Sense. Through One Divine thought the Element of Air can change our mind. One Divine Truth can change the whole landscape of the Truth of our Reality.

2 Flint / ETZNAB – Moved by Divine Trinity: 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.”

Flint/ETZNAB delivers the Truth like a bolt out of the blue. The glyph illustrates the pyramid from a perspective Above. ETZNAB is also known as Mirror, returning the crystal clarity of Truth. ETZNAB relates to the Obsidian Mirror that returns a perfect reflection of Truth. Both Obsidian and Flint forge the Fires of Truth – one is born by fire and the other strikes a spark.

ETZNAB delivers the Unexpected Truth for the Highest Purpose to sweep away any illusions that stand in our way. It could be a “hard truth” that sets us back on course. Or, Flint can share a “lightbulb moment” as a stroke of genius. Whatever it is, we’ll know its True, because we already knew.

ETZNAB shares Truth that’s hidden or covered up. It’s said Flint offers a temptation to act out of character. One way or another, what we try to conceal from one another is going to be revealed. It can be Truth we’re afraid to admit, Truth we’re trying to avoid, or Truth we were afraid was too good to be True. Or, ALL of the above.

Flint is the static electricity that precedes the Storm (CAUAC). It’s a day of polarities. Like a thundercloud, negative and positive energies are separated above and below. It can feel like an edgy day. We can learn the Truth the hard way through our own impulsive action, or we can be Vigilantly Conscious of our thoughts.

Flint offers a good test of our Wisdom and the Discernment of our own Truth. This is a day to think before you speak or before you take action. Tone 2 is never the day to take action, but to consider one thing or another. Flint’s Truth can cut to the heart of a matter, like the Sacred Knife. We can experience our own gifts of Truth and Telepathy on Flint. Those born Flint can read between the lines. Try to conceal the Truth from a Flint, and it will be written all over their face. On Flint we can put 2+2 together to realize, our gut instincts and hunches were right on point.
