13 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

The 13th day of each timewave is a day of disintegration and release of that timewave, as it opens up or sets free its energy for the next timewave.

Warrior, Vulture and Owl are the living symbols for holding one’s centre, for keeping hold of your essential truth.

Today you might be experiencing a disconcerting diversity of truth moving out all around you. The challenge is to hold a multitude of perspectives lightly, without losing your energetic centre. This means letting go and then finding a new temporary position of comfort, then releasing and re-grasping your centre once more.

A flood of relativistic perspectives can make us think that all truths are equal. Equally, the populist perspective that life is an accident and existence is neutral can leave a person spiritually inert and acting purely out of self-interest...

Life requires a strong choice. Whatever the situation, choose benevolence and abundance. Look to enjoy some gain, but not at the expense of others. Choose life. Choose that life will flourish; choose that there is plenty for everyone.

Recognize that life is grounded in consciousness, love and abundance.

Whatever the situation today, choose Life.

[Note from Carey: On 13 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey) of 9 July 2016, Laurence posted a link to a fascinating article about memory spaces… I can’t help wondering whether LjL used similar techniques, consciously or inadvertently, to retain and integrate the vast amounts of information, across so many diverse paradigms, that he had immediate access to in his mind and being.]

12 Eagle

Today is a good day for perspective.

Your perception will be connected to real human issues, to normal everyday living, yet with the benefit of an elevated view. You may have a vision for your life or a project that is soft focus but big picture, and/or you will gain clarity about what you need to focus on right now.

The 12th day of every timewave brings us some understanding on a linear-mind level of the whole timewave and its theme, its reason and its teachings.

This being an Eagle day means that this mental understanding is seen through the Eagle’s vision. Eagle sees the whole world, but then focuses on one particular point on the ground in great detail. Eagle is powerful yet compassionate, and is able to hone in on that which is relevant.

Today, stay in the worldly realm of the skies and the hills – don’t go Skywalking far out in the cosmos. Stay within the Earthly realms, then see what catches your eye on the ground. Focus upon that detail, for it will reveal the intelligence that is inherent within this timewave and will nourish you with an understanding of relevance that you can share.

An extremely powerful day of pertinent vision connected to your emotions.

A very good day to have a big, yet balanced, perspective on the present maelstrom we call the world.

11 Jaguar

[Note from Carey: Exactly 260 days ago – one Mayan Sacred Calendar year – on 11 Jaguar, 24 March 2017, my beloved Laurence James Lucas slipped out of this Earthly Realm to roam in the mysteries of the Cosmic Realms. I promised him I would continue his Mayan Sacred Calendar blog, and will do what I can in the future to make more of his work available.]

This image is his beloved daughter Oceana's farewell tribute to him,
painted soon after his passing.

Stalking the doorway where energy enters...

You are stalking the energy during an era of enormous flux and transition. Stay alert; be awake to the subtle fluctuations in the environment.

Modify ideas with instinct...

On the frequency of the Mayan Calendar, 11 days always somewhat dissolve the structure we tuned into or found on 10 days.

As you follow the timewave, you get to see how the rhythm moves you first in one direction, then another; into one archetype, then on to another, bringing you into contact with the dancing kaleidoscopic nature of the Galactic frequency as viewed and experienced from Earth.

Today – the day of the Jaguar with day number 11 – brings a consciousness and quality to the day that, at least to some extent, allows you to feel more clearly the transparency of your ideas and the energy behind them.

This can be quite disconcerting on one hand but, beyond that, if you look further through the dissolution, the benevolence of life in all its glorious mystery is revealed.

Jaguar’s expression is instinctive and occult. Jaguar is happy to roam in the darkness of the mysteries. The Jaguar is the shaman/woman and protector of the shadowy earthly realms. Call upon Jaguar today to dissolve negative unseen energy.

10 Reed (Skywalker)

Ideas from Heaven meet ideas from Earth.

A day where you see the structure of your higher mind processes. Today, the 10th day of the Lizard (Seed) Timewave, allows you to see the present state of your Overmind, your higher thought forms.

An overview idea that has arisen from your intention meets and meshes with the descending ideas from your abstract ethereal template.

The Seed energy of this timewave solidifies into a thought form, from which an aspect of your reality will manifest later on down the line.

Today, 10 Reed, see the new program or programs you have created within your psyche from your recent intentions, either consciously or inadvertently.

See how your life situation as it stands is a product of your previous ideas, the ideas that stuck.

9 Good Road (Human, Grass)

A day of ‘Aha!’ and a sense of knowing that you already knew it.

Today brings a need for freedom, the open road and the far horizon – but this can also bring a sense of frustration at the way we are inhibited by our circumstances.

A day when you can recognize that your life is the result of deep choices you have made and that these choices have magnetically drawn you to people and circumstances which have sculpted your life.

Human or Grass reminds us that life is abundant – far beyond our mind’s capacity to understand – yet the greatest abundance of life comes to those who are humble.

The Long Good Road of Life teaches us humility, but it does not require us to close our minds nor our hearts.

Being humble does not mean you cannot dramatize your life, nor that you should live small.

Enjoy your journey today and remember: Life is like a fairground ride.

8 Monkey

Monkey is also known as ‘Artisan’ to the Maya.

Today is a day to commit to your creative projects, to see the creative potentials in your work and to not take your commitments too seriously. Still commit, but take it lightly.

The challenge of today is based on attempting to weave all of the different threads of your life into one tapestry.

Monkey 8 is a day of commitment with humour. Allow the spontaneous to enter into your activities without destroying the essential intent.

A good day for relationships. You can feel the resonance with others today.

7 Dog offers you the opportunity to feel how your intentions, your essential self and your life purpose resonantly fit with those of other people.

Enjoy people today. Be prepared to keep an ear open and look at people you encounter with a fresh perspective.

Today, step into the feelings and connect to companions that share your path – this can include spirit guides and totem animals, as well as human companions.

Evoke the sense of the multitude of beings involved with you in this life. Even if you feel somewhat isolated, the truth is that we are accompanied by many, both seen and unseen.

[Extra message from Laurence:]
On 28 August 2013, a 7 Dog day, Laurence and I were in Bristol, visiting family and friends. He wrote: '... I am having a whirlwind trip with lots of different family/hotels/restaurants/trains/buses etc. What a fabulous city Bristol is, full of outlaws and artists, students and alternative entrepreneurs, amazing graffiti-decorated buildings... I like this place, the corporate mentality has not taken over...'

Here is Laurence in one of the many little cafés we discovered to our joy
in Bristol Old City, on a 7 Dog day in 2013.

6 Water (Moon)

Flow with it...

The water of purification, flow and feeling is encoded with subtle filaments of structure today. A day of releasing and dissolving blocks to reveal an underlying story that is forming in your imagination.

Sense the wholeness and geometric patterning of your soul-felt impressions. Allow yourself to follow the rhythm of the day by honouring the gentle impulses that emerge from the depths of your being, moving you from one space to another. The movement of the day paints a complete picture if you stay with it.

It emerges...

5 Rabbit (Star) Full Moon today, 15:46 GMT (23:47 HK time)

'Star'; image created by LjL

Today is a day to be in your centre – the space from where you emanate your light, your inner radiance.

You may feel overwhelmed with all that there is to do and maintain, in which case, feel into the centre through the portal of discomfort.

Look all around you. Take a 360-degree view; see the full circle of your energy. You have planted seeds and set things in motion in every direction. Rabbit is the proliferation of all things in all directions – fertility and abundance.

Be in the centre and feel the creative essence that has sent ripples out in all directions. Your sound is going out like a subtle pervasive field of energy, interacting and gently colouring the whole conscious field of life.

If you feel disconnected from your centre, remember the key to feeling centred in the place of emanation is to first acknowledge and then to feel the pain of disconnection.

Rabbit can be superficial and is easily attracted to all that appears light, bright and beautiful – the glitz, the glamour and the obvious aesthetic. Today you are asked to find the true beauty of the subtle, immanent and all-pervasive Light.

The primal wound of disconnection from Source and the Central Light first surfaced in our awareness in early tribal culture. The primal wound is carried by the whole species, but we each feel it in a different area of our lives.

Reconnection to Source does not involve ‘getting rid of’ the wound; there can be no ‘absolute’ healing or total control of the psyche if we are to fully reconnect.

Live with the awareness of the subtle pain of imperfection, impermanence and the fragmentation of life, without dissolving into victimhood, and you can be a conduit for the radiance.

Connection is found through feeling into and then moving through the disconnection.

[Here is an extra article posted by Laurence on this blog for 5 Rabbit of 13 May 2014, but still relevant today:]
I have been tuning into different reality currents, specifically extra-terrestrial threads that extend back into ancient history, which I am being shown yet again through narratives in my dreams – the past is not fixed.

What timeline will we choose?

It is important that those who are awake hold a benevolent vision for our Earth. A benevolent vision for life is based on spiritual truth – the cosmos and our planet are wholly abundant – whereas the mainstream vision of impoverishment and lack of resources is based on control and negative agendas to create a timeline that supports ownership of this planet and the human species.

The greatest resource on planet Earth is human consciousness.

What ‘they’ want is the human soul, not money – no, real energy and power is always spiritual. All else is illusory and impermanent.

Your attention is the tool for your soul; focus your attention on benevolent abundance.

Now, this level of reality and the understanding of different timelines is of course way beyond everyday life, but we are evolving towards it. The evolution of consciousness has a structure to it. We develop both as individuals and collectively one stage at a time.

The majority of people on Earth are currently emotionally centred in the realities ruled by the philosophies of absolutism or scientism. In simple terms, these two levels are the good/bad moralistic stage, and the materialistic stage. These two stages of culture [Note from Carey: In Laurence’s model,* what he terms Saturn Enchantment and Uranus Enchantment] – which we are all also subject to – are controlled by the media narrative that encourages a polarity within a small context.

The next stage of culture that is emerging is something akin to a spiritual revival [Neptune Enchantment], but even this narrative is being engineered – largely on the internet – by agents who disrupt free thinking and encourage mass mind. The key weapon that is used is the environment, the global warming meme, which is a gross reductionist interpretation of the environmental instability we are witnessing. That meme supports a reduction of the population and a corporatized socialism, impoverishment for the majority, whilst taking attention away from environmental pollution that is created by war, oil, chemical companies and the media itself. Remember: The environment first and foremost is an environment of consciousness.

Reality is led by light; light overcomes darkness. A small minority of people who are lit up will light up the whole environment, so do not be disheartened by the lack of intelligence in the mass mind. The collective heart is still good, but contextually we still need to have individuals who can see the big picture positively.

The level of reality where time itself is understood as fluid [Pluto Enchantment] is beyond normal psychology, but is an organic stage of development that arises from the whole stratum of awareness which has been empirically mapped by developmental psychology. As we move towards the technological singularity, the very substance of experience undergoes transmutation. High technology is linked to the co-creator stage of the soul, where nature is created.

What we might term ‘low-level ETs’ look to invade not through war, but through technological control of attention. But there is and can be no control unless there is compliance and mass hypnotism, for it is the soul energy that is being competed for. The global elite, so called, are all subject to higher dimensional forces – they are not really in control.

Each stage of consciousness has its own history and story, which is symbiotic with its unique relationship with time and space, or the space/time calibration.

The Mayan Sacred Calendar connects you to the interface between Earth and Cosmos, the planetary scale of consciousness. Stay tuned in and envisage the whole Earth as a vital creative force that is plugged into the source of all life and all creation. This energy has no limits....

4 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

Today, open your proverbial palm and see what you are holding. Anything that we desire too strongly would not actually satisfy us or make us happy. Grasping brings anxiety and inner torment; in the extreme, grasping creates hell and the hellish moments of life.

Happiness is the true acknowledgement of what we have. Having-ness is a joy.

The Deer is powerful yet graceful and somewhat elusive. The refined consciousness of Deer requires both male and female aspects of our psyche. Embody the grace, stillness and silence of the Deer.

Today – being a 4 Day and therefore a foundation day, as well as being Deer/Hand/Grasp – is a day to seize the moment, to develop ideas or plans and to go the next step, without necessarily knowing the outcome. Take the next step then leave it at that for now.

Hold something, without grasping; exercise some control; achieve something, then let go. Do not overrun...

3 Skull

The third day of each timewave is generally energizing. Skull rules completions and endings.

Today is a good day to make many small decisions. Be ruthless if necessary. Get real.

Be energized with the vitality of this day through those little completions. Cut off and restart; clarify your life through the ability to release clutter and distractions.

Keep it simple.

Edit your life.

Get to the point.

2 Serpent

The second day of each timewave presents the duality that exists within that specific timewave. Serpent days in general concern physical vitality, amongst other things.

The challenges of survival and making a living can come to the fore today – the issues of health versus money.

Today can be a challenging day, or just a day of opposites. 2 Serpent represents the dual impulses of the life force inherent within all growth – security versus the urge to grow.

Allow the two forces to be. Feel the creative tension that builds as this is your power, which you will soon be able to harness.

If you feel tense, be sure to get into the body today. Move and dance.

1 Lizard (Seed)

 Sunflower seedlings, from the Tai Peng Community Garden, near our home.
Posted on the local Facebook page by Geoff Smith, with the caption: 'Help yourself.' 

The timewave of Lizard or Seed (Kan) begins today.

In this 13-day period, we can connect to the underlying intelligence of this momentous period of the human story – the cyclic change of the 2012 era. Trust your sense of how life is changing; trust your insights. Your direct experiential knowledge will give you a facet of the whole truth – not the whole truth, but a facet of the truth.

This is extremely valuable, so make the effort to connect and understand what it is you are being given, without presuming it to be the absolute definition.

The Lizard or Seed timewave gives you the opportunity to be centred in your essential template, which is the subtle manifest form of your divine essence as expressed in this life. Your template holds the basic intention for your life, your dharma and the structure within which your free will operates. Your intentions for different aspects of your life are the seeds that you generate within your mind and imagination. The more aligned you are with your master template, the more effective your intentions are.

Lizards enjoy the abundance of the Sun. They are masters at storing the Sun’s energy, just like the seed does. Seed is the living example of universal abundance. Every seed contains a life, every living thing produces seeds in outrageous amounts. Nature does not adhere to ‘one plus one equals two’ – the totality of life is not just the sum of its parts, but an ever-expanding proliferation of life.

Absorb the light of the Sun consciously today to enhance your awareness of your divine intelligence. Recognize that light carries the seed for all manifest form –  light is intelligent – and by so doing, you increase your connection to your master template.

This 13-day timewave gives you the opportunity to plant many seeds for your life.

Today, just start with the simplicity of recognizing that there is a template of your being and for your life.

The Tai Peng Community Garden, Lamma Island.
Many wonderful people plant seeds here to enhance life for everyone in the community.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 1 Lizard/Seed:]
Seed people (those born on a Lizard/Seed Day) are community networkers, as each seed is both separate unto itself, yet embodies the morphogenic field to which it belongs. Connect to your resonant energy fields, for they extend beyond the limits of your mind. Human intentions only grow and fully flower in the fecundity of community.

13 Foredawn (Dark House, In the House, Dark Night)

Let go and jump into the mystery; open yourself to go beyond what you know. The energy of today is conducive to creating space in your life for the renewed clarity of intention that will be emerging during the next timewave.

A great day for contemplating the stars and the cosmos and feeling the bliss and awe that comes when you allow yourself to reach out into the unknown.

The Monkey timewave ends with cosmic awe. Monkey draws upon this experiential truth to retain his humour and spontaneity.

12 Wind

Today, the Monkey Timewave reveals its order and rationality. When Wind falls on a 12 day, it is more stable; the mind works in an orderly fashion. The trickster element within your life reveals its wisdom in a way that makes sense — if you are listening.

Wind is the transmitter of ideas, the messenger, the activator. It can be impatient, anxious or angry.

Today, harness the power of Wind and bring it under the control of your reasoning —  this will allow you access to exciting and fresh ideas that motivate yourself and others.

Today is a good day for understanding the chaos that has recently arisen in your life and how it has brought you gifts.

Harness the power of Wind; notice what gifts there are in your life

11 Crocodile

Today we are asked to nurture our creations by allowing for fallow time.

The strong confidence of yesterday’s light dissolves into a brooding need to have some soulful security, to slow down and to open to the feminine.

Allow more into your area of love; it is a day of acceptance and nurturing.

Nutrients from Arcadia flow into your psyche and you can share the love.

The primal birth of the Earth, the Goddess realm, resonates through the ethers as the door opens to the ever-present birth of Earth.

The question is: Are you still being nurtured by what you think is feeding you?

Are your expressions and is your creativity nurturing you?

Also, are you allowing yourself enough space in between your activities for the primal connection to Source to be felt?

Make sure that you are not becoming a robot. Allow for the ever-present primal energy of the Goddess to enter your life.

10 Flower (Sun, Lord)

A day of manifest light. The Monkey Timewave manifests with the light within the trickster, which is humour with grace and the radiance of the heart opening.

When the face is lit up with a smile, the light of the Sun can be seen.

Today is all about smiling.

That does not necessarily mean grinning with recognition at everyone you pass in town today – it could be a song or a dance that brings a deep smile to your face.

Smile with the recognition of your divinity and the blessing of being sovereign of your personal reality. Be conscious of natural light today. Today is a day when the subtle creative light of existence, the wholly affirmative energy within life, manifests and is easily accessible through the agency of natural manifest light.

Monkey tells us that life is drama, full of dark humour, paradox and trickery, and that the key to playing the game successfully with a positive attitude requires that we draw upon the light.

The Divine Light contains the intelligence of existence. We are processors of light. The intelligence of all life far surpasses the intelligence of any machine or technology, no matter how advanced it becomes. In psychology, the computer metaphor has gradually replaced the study of the soul. This metaphor for the human mind (replacing soul) is known as the cognitive approach. We are indeed partially cognitive – that is, information processors – but the internet is already more efficient than any human for accessing all of the information of human knowledge, no matter how bright the individual. So are we to surrender our divinity to the machine?

No, because the Divine Light contains the intelligence of life, which includes far more than information – it is imbued with the ability of unlimited creativity. We are co-creators, far more than we are information processors; co-creators who are interconnected to the unlimited adaptability, spontaneity and joy of creation itself.

In today's world, as the technological continues to progress, it is increasingly true that our connection to our sovereign light, our creative channel, is the most valuable commodity we own.

Today, bring more light into your being by smiling.


[Extra message from Laurence to consider today]

Today is 10 Flower in the Monkey Timewave. Today, the Monkey manifests as the ability to draw light directly from Source within the dark and unknown chapters of life. Monkey says that the rules of life are forever changing and that we can play – and should play – by our own rules when the situation demands.

Flower is the manifestation of a plant celebrating life. The plant synthesizes light directly to sustain itself. We, on the other hand, in our present state of evolution, require the synthesized light that we get through eating plants. However, can we also synthesize light directly from the solar radiation that infuses the atmosphere? I think we are already doing that, to a certain extent, and that the body can synthesize vitamins and minerals from the atmosphere.

Light from the Sun is encoded with all the energy information for life on Earth – and that includes our consciousness. Higher levels of consciousness within us equate to and draw upon the unseen light from the Galactic Core and all of the stars that surround us. Beyond that, our higher levels of consciousness have resonance with, or are sourced from, galaxies all over the Universe, the Universe itself and then the light of the Multiverse.

The Moon also plays an important role in transducing light, by reflecting the Sun and, in effect, by enabling us to reflect upon ourselves through our feelings. The planets in the Solar System also transduce light into different frequencies. The Solar System is mostly made up of ‘space’ that is contained within the auric field of the Sun – the Sun’s influence, which extends out to the Oort cloud.

‘Space’ is actually filled with plasma, which is the fundamental state of matter, a kind of liquid gas with very strange properties. Scientists have found that plasma exhibits signs of being a life form. In laboratory conditions, it has been found that two plasma fields can communicate and reproduce.

I consider plasma to be the conduit for consciousness.

The movements of the planets through the Sun’s plasma ocean (the Solar System) change the symphony and the arrangement of frequencies. This is the basis for astrology.

9 Storm

The shaft of light then enters the drama, a window of awareness into the completion of the cycle and the new space being offered…

The Mayan Sacred Calendar measures a different but ever-present realm; it is the layer of the tapestry of reality that connects the Earth, Nature and the human world with the greater Cosmos. This day, 9 Storm, is a wake-up day.

A day of realization. Not a rational understanding, but a soul-felt liberating connection, a memory from the future. A reminder that you were meant to drop that ‘thing’ you had already planned to let go of, or to break out of ‘this’, or to wake up from ‘that’.

A sudden bolt of lightening acts to cleanse, purge, purify and catalyse you. This could include meeting some strange but familiar person.

A good day to feel the Spirit of Freedom that lives within you.

9 Storm is a day to be alert to a peak experience, as a hole in time opens up in the most unexpected place and in the most unexpected moment.

8 Obsidian (Obsidian Mirror, Flint)

Energy moving towards manifestation.

Committing to the Game of Life requires accepting the totality that results from your desires, which includes living with the shadow of what you want. However, the price is never as high as it might seem. The shadow is a scary spectre that dissolves with the light of your courage as you open up to new dimensions.

‘Mirror, mirror on the wall: Who am I?’

Today is a day where you can recognize how you are attracting what you ask for. You have the life that reflects the totality of your emanations, what you put out, and you are challenged to commit to accepting that, to seeing the shadow and the price of your desires. However, looking deeper into the smoky mirror of eternity, you will find that other worlds open up as you make the commitment.

Day 8 of the 13-day timewave is a day of balanced, controlled commitment; it is the energy of feeling prepared. Obsidian is a day of truth and surrender, of accepting the shadow and the universal reflection of one’s reality at the moment.

However, as we are in the Monkey Timewave, there is a subtext of ‘Do not get too serious or rigid with your commitment.’

Surrender your emotional tightness so as to open the heart and be a divine mirror.

The Monkey knows that on each level of the game, he faces his shadow.

In so doing, he is able to create and to weave new fabric into reality.

7 Earthmover

A good day to feel a resonance or actually synchronize with the impulse of life to change towards the beneficial and the magnificent. 7 Earthmover is a high-energy day, full of magical potential.

Take time to remind yourself and to create some space, to experience the fact that all of Nature is alive, just like you. Feel the vital fizz of life; see it all around you.

Alternatively, a day to enjoy the magical surprise of a spontaneous element that comes into your life which takes you off track – meaning off the linear path of linear mind, so that you can integrate and synchronize with the force of evolution.

Life has an intelligence beyond our personal and immediate understanding.

What gift is here for you today?

Create some space; Nature is alive; What gift is here for you today?

6 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

Flowing strength, clear harmonics, relaxed and moving with the ebb and flow...

To be a Daykeeper means to follow the rhythm of the 260-day calendar each and every day. Slowly, patiently, receive the pulse of the vast reality beyond the mundane realm of worldly matters.

The pulse resonates at the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere where our planet is looking out into the depths of the Cosmic Ocean. Simultaneously, this pulsation is immanent within all material concerns.

Today is a day of receptive, responsive action and surrender, with an easy strength of mind. Assume a relaxed stance and be ready to respond with nobility and creativity.

Wisdom unfurling...

'As consciousness expands,
so does our embrace of more time and more space.
As we evolve, the complexity of time and space also increases,
since we are able to hold a greater variety of time frames at once.
This increasing embrace also includes connection to larger and
more complex scales of community.'

5 Eagle

A great day to see yourself in the centre of your world.

The difference between being isolated and dislocated from all that circles you, and being connected and engaged with your world is whether the heart is open.

Keeping the heart open requires an enormous effort and diligence in the world today, for we also have to be discerning about what and who we open up to. Utilize the clarity, compassion and precision of the Eagle to locate the most appropriate place in your world today and then apply your efforts there.

A day of empowerment. Speak from your vision, because the vision you have today is nicely centred and you are able to recognize the joy of material reality whilst holding the wisdom you have accrued.

Empower yourself with the Eagle energy today and you will attract more abundance into your life – if not today, then soon.

The clarity you have today needs to be appreciated and recognized for its magnetic ability.

Laurence on holiday in Whitstable in 2008.

Laurence James Lucas, more than anyone else I have ever met,
had an extraordinary ability to keep his heart always open.

Today, and every day, I call upon his Spirit to help me by imbuing me with some of
his clarity, his compassion, his breathtaking depth of vision, his irrepressible joy in life,
his refined discernment, his unique capacity to empower those around him,
his wisdom, his humour and his contagious laughter.

Today happens to be my own Mayan birthday.
Exactly 260 days ago, on 5 March 2017, only 19 days before Laurence’s Spirit left his Body
(at which time neither of us had any idea what lay ahead),
he wrote in his blog post for 5 Eagle:
‘A big happy birthday to Carey,
may you soar high and see all the opportunities you need in the next 260 days.’

4 Jaguar

A good day to feel grounded within the matrix of the living spirits of the Shamanic Earth. Allow the energy and vibrancy of the natural forces to lead you.

The creative process is a lateral process; the foundation of its energy is derived from the Mystery and the Muses.

The Shamanic World is fully inhabited by spirits, all vying to contribute to the open channel of your psyche as you endeavour to express the moment and your state of being, whether by painting, writing, dancing or solving problems.

Today, stay relaxed so as to be alert to the relevant moments when you can achieve something. Do not try to work hard all day on something. Do not labour your projects.

Today you can create some structure in your work fairly spontaneously, but do not overrun. Know when to stop and just chill.

Accept what is and recognize the ongoing dramas, struggles and duality of life that you encounter as part of the terrain and experience. It is what it is.

3 Reed (Skywalker)

[ * New Moon today: 11:42 GMT; 19:42 Hong Kong time]

A day of fresh ideas. Open yourself to the sky, send up a beam of light and receive inspiration. Open yourself to the descending guidance from higher intelligence that will be coming down into your expectant neural network.

Remember: 3 days can be unsettled, but they do stimulate the movement of energy within the soul.

However, within this disturbance, this is a great day for inspirational energy comprised of abstract ideas and complex big-picture patterns. The energy of 3 Reed (or Skywalker) will be illuminating and will reveal the plethora of potentials and opportunities inherent within this Monkey Timewave.

Appreciate the fact that the nature of the day might make it hard for you to settle into one thing; accept the restlessness you feel as product of the higher or more exploratory calling you have.

Monkey is curious and inquisitive and the timewave energy sets the scene for new creative solutions to your tasks. Today, you can access the knowledge that comes from understanding cosmic forces and planetary movements.

A good day for exploring the pristine clarity of ideas unencumbered by emotions...

2 Good Road (Human, Grass)

The challenges of our adventure on the Long Good Road of Life.

A fork in the road appears for you today, with a chance to open yourself to a bigger quest.

Today, you find yourself asking ‘What is the way ahead?’ There seems to be two polarized options. In some cases, this really does mean you are seeing a complete change of direction in your future. For most people, however, today just presents you with two choices that are very different in a specific area of your life linked to the issue of community.

Where do you belong and how can you serve and therefore feel part of humanity?

Be as an empty cup.

The wisdom of Grass (also known as Good Road or Human) is to remain open. Open your mind and allow the mind to be guided by energy and intuition. Grass is the sign of the ever-present abundance, which is found in the constant growth of nature and the totality of community. People provide your worldly abundance in the way that Nature provides the fundamental abundance for humanity.

Because this is in the Monkey Timewave, do not treat anything too seriously. Monkey says that life is art, even if the game appears tricky.

If you feel a sense of overwhelming confusion, then recognize that the solution will not come from analysis. Do not take the ego seriously; Grass is a humble plant.

Open yourself and recognize that you do not have a solution in your mind. Just accept and be conscious of the two paths ahead.

1 Monkey

LjL monkeying around in Peru,
while on an Ayahuasca Retreat with his good friend Scott, February 2008

Today begins the Monkey Timewave, 13 days that offer the opportunity to use creativity and humour to bring new energy into your life; 13 days of monkeying around…

Monkey is the Master Craftsman or Artisan, and this particular day, 1 Monkey, is revered by the Highland Maya.

Today, the trickster energy is high. This is both fecund for deception but also – more importantly – for creative breakthroughs in awareness as you recognize how the whole of life is a theatre of absurdity, humour and extraordinary experience.


Weave some new threads into your life with playful, creative, inquisitive and, most of all, spontaneous acts. Let’s break out a little with the blessings of the trickster Monkey.

Work is play and play is work. Monkey has a tricky sense of humour and challenges us to adapt.

Structured plans will not stay on course, nor work out in a linear fashion with Monkey energy. That can be frustrating; however, Monkey will be offering us a more creative and fun way of performing tasks and solving problems.

A playful attitude yields new wisdom in this timewave. Monkey teaches us that creative play is at the heart of the Divine. Allow novelty into your life and be inventive.

This is a love-life and laugh-permission day.

Stay inquisitive during these 13 days and enjoy the mischievous energy. Serious problems require our engagement, mundane issues require our attention – but the Monkey will teach us that we can find novel, unusual and even what might at first appear strange ways or methods of dealing with life.

Interestingly, I selected the photo at the top and wrote the caption for it
a couple of weeks ago. Two days ago I got a message out of the blue
to say that Scott is in Hong Kong now, albeit very briefly.
The only day he can see me is today, 1 Monkey, which is 'my timewave'.
I am so thrilled! As I know Laurence would be too,
to spend this evening at home with one of his closest friends.
Here are Scott and Laurence in September 2008.

13 Dog

The swirling reflections of all that you have seen in this timewave tumble through your psyche—a kaleidoscope of self-reflection.

The Earth is in a state of flux, in case you had not noticed! This affords you the opportunity to develop a heightened emotional fluidity, adaptability and responsibility. Keep allowing the energy to flow through you.

Today, 13 Dog in the Obsidian Mirror Timewave, affords you the opportunity to ascend to a new level of emotional frequency.

As you accept that all you encounter reflects aspects of your self through multiple dimensions and realms, you move into the space of belonging to more of reality.

The whole Cosmos is teeming with life to such a degree that is mind-boggling. As life, you belong in life.

As emotions arise, you have a choice about what you do with those emotions. Your choices ripple throughout the multiverse and are reflected back to you as the world out there.

Alternatively: A never-ending stream of unfulfilled needs, wants, inadequacies and unfavourable comparisons to other people can overload you today, as the feeling body goes into free fall. If you look for the root cause of your emotional problems, you will find another problem. Like an ouroboros, one thing leads to another and the last causal reason for any troubling feelings you have is then swallowed by the first definitive answer.

However, because 13 Dog also offers the opportunity to shift into the flow of collective energy, where you recognize that your emotional nature is simply a reflection of the human condition, you have access today to some salvation and freedom from your emotional challenges.

Release the dependency on desire; give up on your self-preoccupation and recognize the universal sufferings, joys and unions of all people. You belong to life as part of life. You are needed by life, in the way that life has shaped you.

The culmination of the Obsidian Mirror timewave today reveals your humanness and the universal existence of human needs. Your basic needs, relationship dynamics and behaviour are mirrored all around you. 13 Dog offers us the chance to go to another level of awareness.

In a celebratory and liberated state, enjoy the commonplace social spaces, the unconscious union of the crowd and the companionship you see all around you.

12 Water (Moon)

Clear Water
Today is the 12th day of the Obsidian Timewave (also called Obsidian Mirror, or Flint), with the Water (or Moon) Daykeeper.

This timewave is all about facing the shadow and becoming conscious of the levels of reality. Obsidian is the cosmic mirror of truth that separates the wheat from the chaff and which clears the perceptional field. It often asks us to sacrifice that which is not working for us.

The glyph of the Obsidian Mirror (shown above, as well as in the centre of the image below) can be seen as the view looking down onto a Mayan stepped pyramid. The glyph shows us the divisions and boundaries between different realms and entities.

Obsidian is the black volcanic stone that would appear to have no reflection, but which is a most powerful tool for scrying and seeing into the deeper dimensions. Obsidian shards are extremely sharp – surgically sharp in fact. The Obsidian energy can cut with precision through to the core, as well as cut out the shadow material for cleansing.

The 12th day of each timewave is the day when it all makes sense, if you have been following and logging the energies thus far.

Moon or Water is the depth of the soul – true feeling rather than emotion – and today you can recognize what it is that you can offer people and what it is that needs purifying in yourself.

The cosmic principle of Water – be that emotion, feeling, imagination, astral-psychic plasma or the electromagnetic plasmic field of space – is the energy that permeates through all boundary walls.

The resonant vibrations through the fluid fields of existence create the mirror effect. What we see in front of us and around us reflects who we are, or what we are feeling, on the deepest level.

The clarity of the reflection can be a visceral and shocking realization that cuts through our sentiments. However, stay with it if you are seeking to know thyself.

Today is a good day to understand and see some of your truest deepest feelings.

11 Rabbit (Star)

Gorgeous image created by our friend Kookie Birjukov
for one of the projects Laurence and I were working on several years ago.

Doors within doors to be opened today.

11 Rabbit is a Stargate kind of day. Maybe it’s not ET contact of the fourth kind for you today, but you might feel the fertility and light that is infusing the day. Where does it come from? It is your monadic essence and it is in resonance and at one with beings throughout the universe.

Today is a doorway to spiritual abundance and/or what might feel like a collapse of the light or euphoria into the black hole. The reflection of the radiating light is the toroidal flow back into the centre. Rabbits surge out of their burrows and radiate in all directions, then they all disappear underground.

The control and structure of yesterday’s Grasp (aka Deer or Hand) gives way to diffuse and fertile light, which is flowing in toroidal form. The challenge is how to integrate a radiant cosmic energy without getting scattered. The energy of this day is beautiful and subtle, and yet out of resonance with limitation, containment and practical concerns.

Creativity and destruction are mirrors. The sense of impermanence of our highs is a clue to the dynamic nature of creation. The cycle of creativity includes the fallow moments, which then lead onto new inspiration.

Explosion and implosion in every moment…

‘The holographic nature of reality is revealed in the understanding that the basic unit of all life is a toroid. It is a fractal reality, where the form can be found on every scale of creation. The toroid is not static; it curves in on itself and twists into the centre with an energy that is known as a torsion field. The torsion field generates the spiral pattern of all growth, as in the Fibonacci sequence.’ - Laurence James Lucas

10 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

Today is all about holding on. What does that mean to you today?

What do you need to hold on to?

Each moment has the potential to grip us; each period of our life is a manifestation of our multiplicity. Each moment offers us the chance to feel totally free and empty – this idea of total freedom is really transcendental. We are here to engage, but with some transcendence.

Quite often in our lives we are desiring and wanting – this is an existential fact of engaging with life, rather than an error. Most people, most of the time, want more – more freedom, sex, love, romance, excitement, adventure, freedom again, money, self-expression, recognition, privacy, or at least some of those. This is not wrong, it is just an existential fact.

Today, hold the moment lightly, knowing all is well and, yes, you really do want to live life more freely and yet more magnificently.

Wanting creates attachment, so we all have this paradox within us – wanting freedom and yet wanting more in life. The mind cannot handle the paradox, but somewhere in the heart and the psyche is the capability to create open structures or conduits.

Are you gripped by Life? Are you gripped by the Divine Restlessness?

Hold on to something today and yet allow your energy to flow through the centre.

A good day for controlling aspects of your life in a positive way.

9 Skull

DNA strand, showing that even the most fundamental form of life
is continuously turning inside out (from Google Images)

9 days are always days of realization and Skull brings the acknowledgement of that which has to be cleared out with decisiveness.

You are a reflection of all that is, yet you have your own journey and your own being within the collective.

Become clear about your boundaries, structures and axioms; release collective negativity (the lowest common denominator energy) and set a basic intention to be an agent for change.

Intend to transform, as and when it is appropriate, and make clean breaks from cultural pressures and fear-based scripts.

Navigate the streams of impermanence to your advantage. All situations can be turned inside out, just as life is continuously turning inside out.

We found this beautiful image in a Google search and have used it for some of our
workshop notes to illustrate the toroidal nature of the Earth's energy field
(which is the same for all living beings).
Unfortunately I have not been able to find the original artist to add a proper credit.
My thanks to whoever created this.

[Extra message from Laurence for 9 Skull days:]

Today you can see the outcome of future situations and events, based on how things are unfolding from this moment.


For the next few days, envisage a better world and do not comply with mainstream media suggestions... DO NOT COMPLY with mainstream visions for environment or global change...

Real change can only be seeded from the autonomous free-thinking individual, free from the global agenda being pushed in your face.

The world has never been more abundant. All of our environmental problems and energy problems already have solutions; these solutions have just not been released, but eventually they will. The tide cannot turn back.

The challenge is to clear out any negative energy present at this moment in your field. Clear out the dross of negative expectations so as to affect the outcome and future manifestation more positively now.

Remember the saying: ‘It doesn't have to be like this.’
