MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 3 brings our first day of movement. When we take action on a Dream, it moves from the realm of Spirit into the Physical world. Tone 3 is a day for the dissemination of a new idea. What was a Spark of Inspiration becomes a Germinated Seed of Intention.
ETZNAB is a Day Sign that “wields the sword of truth so falsehoods can be cut away.” The Flint Knife is said to reveal truth that cuts to the bone. “Mirror” is another name for this Day Sign, representing the Truth that is perfectly reflected by an Obsidian Mirror. Through a gift of clarity, Flint is capable to separate Truth from Fiction.
Flint/ETZNAB can present us with the temptation to “act out of character.” Whatever action we take that is not aligned with our own Truth, is likely to be exposed and subject to immediate consequences. Flint reveals the truth of our highest integrity. What we call “acting out of character” is a reflection of the Truth we denied as fiction.
Flint’s Truth is usually unexpected. Flint is said to foil the evil plots of others. Flint also foils the unseen fears of our Shadow. The purpose behind Flint’s revelations of Truth is to clear away what would stand in our way of manifesting new Wisdom.
