9 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine reuires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. A completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
Flint/ETZNAB: Mirror of reality. As a struck flint, these persons are the divine sparks of intelligence. Flint’s innate abilities are utlized 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: Flint’s symbol is Chawa’ or Castor of the Castor and Pollux Twins in Gemini. Castor appears in the evening personifying darkness. Pollux then appears in the east at dawn to end the night. Totem is a Flint Knife. Flint spirit shone a light like the sun and gave the people the Sacred Venus Calendar, fixed the days and promised to watch over the earthlings. A flint person endeavors to keep that covenant. 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.
Paris, Reflection of our Sorrow
The conflict in our world is a reflection of the depth of our collective sorrow.
At the heart of our deepest pain is the fear of our separation. To be seen and heard is the principle evidence that we may be connected in the physical world. At the heart of every conflict in an inability to see one another as our own reflection.
As part of the One, we must accept that we, too, are part of the darkness. When we can only see one side, we remain in our ignorance of one another. The solution lies not in outrage, having closed eyes and ears.
Love is the only balm that heals all wounds. We can only be healed through our collective sorrow… sorrow for those who are hurting, lives lost, those who have lost ones they love, and sorrow for those who believed there was no other way to be seen or heard, and believing that their own lives didn’t matter.
We know so little of the full reality – primarily, only the Truth as presented by 5 media sources. We are led into ignorance of one another through the filters of self-motivated interests. We can love that too, for its reflection of where healing is needed and where we must shine our light.
We are no longer powerless when we are armed with pure love. Our Sorrow and Love are the reflection of the beauty that can connect us again.
To all my relations, may our steadfast love be a bridge to understanding that there is no ‘Other’. We are all a part of the One and the wounded lie on both sides of the mirror. We call upon your help to ease our suffering and to carry our prayers to the Creator for the protection and safety of All who are still in harm’s way.
in lak’ech, i am another you
