Tone 12 presents us with an intention of inner work. We are given an enhanced ability for reflection so we can discover the deeper meaning or value that a new understanding might bring.
Flint/ETZNAB delivers news like a “Stellar Ray of Light.” From my experience, Flint days are newsy with surprising and sometimes shocking new information, plus everyone is tempted to be on their worst behavior.
THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK – SPIRIT WALK
12 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.
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.
Spirit Walk: Day 12
Near the close of every trecena we are given the intention to stop and reflect on everything we’ve learned. It’s a review of all the evidence we’ve accumulated from this cycle that allows us to see the farther reaching affect of our new understanding.
Flint often delivers unexpected news that cuts to the bone. It’s a day to take precautions and to be prepared for anything.
There’s an “instant karma” quality to Flint. If we’re tempted to do something outside our own rules, we could set ourselves up for embarrassment. Considering the role of Flint, we may be given an opportunity to come clean or get a point across.
To all my relations, may we see how the successful course to our destination is a series of many adjustments, and that reaching our highest level of consciousness is a simple matter of learning how to pay attention.
Hey, maybe that’s what our 90% of unused brain capacity is for!!!

Have you noticed any patterns?
Flint can sometimes be a stressful day that builds and then eases up late afternoon. Last Flint was the day I ate those donuts, because I traveled through the wrong neighborhood unprepared to face the temptation. Flint days are usually memorable for something.
