Dear Mayan Majix Friends,

Today is 1 - Flint (Etznab)

Tzolkin Count of Days

Trecena Notes – 1 Flint (Etznab)

Day 118 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

September 21, 2010

Year Bearer:  11 Manik


Trecenas are thirteen-day periods in the Tzolkin. Each Trecena starts with the Number 1, but with
a different Day Glyph. As a wave of the Thirteen Heavens, the underlying energy is governed by
the First Day Glyph of the Trecena and influences all thirteen successive Day Glyphs. Being aware
of the predominant energy of the First Day of the Trecena, we can align our intentions with that
energy and allow our goals to manifest.


This Trecena starts with 1 Etznab (Flint/Mirror) – reflection, spiritual warrior, self-sacrificing healer
and defender, facing the truth with strength.


To the Ancient Maya, Flint symbolized the consciousness of duality, right and wrong, good and evil,
faith and fear, the spiritual warrior who, through his actions, chooses the ethical and moral path.
The symbolic knife can be healing (as used by a surgeon or curandero) or destructive (as used by a fighter). This recognition of the duality allows each of us the opportunity to transcend pain and
suffering by choosing to live in joy and gratitude. As Kenneth Johnson states in Jaguar Wisdom,
“Indeed, it is only when we have become aware of the duality of human existence that we are
in fact awakened to the healing potential that lies within all of us. If the sword of consciousness
that makes us aware of duality can wound us, it can also heal.”

There is evidence of another ancient interpretation of the Flint glyph. According to Tony Shearer in Beneath the Moon and Under the Sun, there was a Maya story told to Friar Juan de Cordova on the
day of
Flint about a light coming from the Sun as a Solar Beam bringing with it the “Book of Days”
which we know as the sacred calendar or Tzolkin.


“On the day we call Tecpatl ( Flint ) a great light came from the northeastern sky. It glowed
for four days in the sky, then lowered itself to that rock (the rock can still be seen at
de Valle in Oaxaca ). From the light there came a great, a very powerful being who stood on the
very top of the rock and glowed like the sun in the sky.

There he stood for all to see, shining day and night. Then he spoke, his voice was like
thunder, booming across the valley.

Our old men and women, the astronomers and astrologists, could understand him and
he could understand them.

He (the Solar Beam) told us how to pray and fixed for us days of fast and feasting. He then balanced the “Book of days,” (Sacred Calendar) and left, vowing that he would always watch
down on us, his beloved people.”


Another representation of the Trecena is that of a creative wave beginning at 1 and ending at 13,
with the numbers 6, 7 and 8 representing the crest of the wave. The crest could be interpreted as
a strong influential energy, although the underlying influence on the Trecena would still rest in
the beginning. This Trecena crests on: 6 Akbal (Night), journeying within to open the heart; 7 Kan (Lizard), symbolizing the dynamic emergence of the seed into awareness; and 8 Chicchan (Serpent), representing the Celestial Life Force or Chi energy that activates the connection between the
spiritual and physical world.


As we journey through each day of this Trecena: 

1 Etznab ( Flint )  September 21, 2010
2 Cauac (Storm) September 22
3 Ahau (Sun) September 23
4 Imix (Crocodile) September 24 4th day of Tzolkin)
5 Ik (Wind) September 25
6 Akbal (Night) September 26
7 Kan (Lizard) September 27
8 Chicchan (Serpent) September 28
9 Cimi (Death/Transformation) September 29
10 Manik (Deer) September 30
11 Lamat (Rabbit) October 1
12 Muluc (Water) October 2

Utilize the energy of Flint to transcend the duality offered by the third dimension and move into
a higher vibration or dimension of wholeness and unity.
