MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
2 Flint/ETZNAB asks us to consider a new way forward. We are looking at our new inspiration from all sides to find the passion that will carry a new Sacred Intention. Flint is known for bringing crystal clarity. Flint’s divine spark offers dynamic realizations, and as the obsidian mirror, helps us to clearly see to the heart of any matter.
Mother Earth presents us with the beauty of Spring for this Time and Place of New Consciousness. The budding of New Life is the Gift she offers. The Natural World is the Gift we are Given to draw an awareness to our own new Spring.
A Re-Awakening has been evidenced to me by the birds on my balcony. Not so long ago my balcony was little more than a place for extra storage and a chair that I never sat in. I was led to transform it by an inspiration to “tend my Spiritual Garden.” Little by little it was transformed into a place of beauty, as one by one, things were sorted through, carried away, and new flowers were planted. I claimed it as a reflection of a manifestation within.
This was, and still is, a Very Powerful Spiritual Tool for me. It remains the physical representation of an effort of Love that I could see “becoming” right in front of me. Even the tending of a single plant with the same Intention and Purpose offers a way to create the Experience of seeing something Transformed by Love.
This Spring my balcony is in need of new attention, though I can also see the remains of what was beautiful still holding its power. The birds I began feeding last summer, carried me through the winter with their daily visits. Just a week ago they started arriving two-by-two, and today I see that an offering of felting wool put out in the winter is showing signs the birds have been pulling at its threads. It touches my Heart that something I offered will be part of their nests this Spring. I can see how an Intention to Create my own Beauty was extended beyond my balcony.
The magic of Earth can raise our Consciousness to the Power of our Love. Love is a Living Vibration that draws new Life to Us… as it also extends its Beauty to the World.
Tone 2 asks us to consider how we would Move forward in a new Intention. We are given the Choice of what is To Be. This is a day to Listen for a Calling of Passion from our Heart. May we Acknowledge the Beauty of Earth that our Heart is calling us to Experience, and make a choice that follows a Leading of Spirit.
Flint/ETZNAB is the Day Sign that brings a revelation of Truth with the suddenness of a lightning strike. Today can be a day of the “unexpected.” Flint can call forth an illusion of our shadow for the purpose of clearing it away. May we surrender to a Truth about ourselves that would help to clear the dead limbs of winter, and til the Soil for a New Spring.
To all my relations, may we reflect on our own way to draw Wisdom from Mother Earth. May we consider our Lives as the place where Beauty Grows. May we see ourselves as a Garden of Spirit and consider how we might Join Forces with Mother Earth to manifest a physical representation of the Love Growing within. May we gratefully receive the Truth of something that is no longer viable, so we may create a new place to grow. And, may we remember the Earth as our guide for each day of this trecena, as the Gift that offers a reflection of our Self. May we remember to turn to the Mother who longs to share everything we need to know.

2 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee: Flint Dawi’sgala)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
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. The transformer brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
