3 Wind

A day of ideas forming and communication building. Exploration of the mind, as you get in touch with your true expression, feeling the movement of the spirit breathe upon your psyche, stimulating the deep unconscious through the interplay of light and shadow.

Or: A day of dynamic communications and thoughts. Moving out of polarity through discernment, ideas ricochet back and forth, judgements swing one way then another to create the energy for choice.

The fickleness of the mind is a reflection of the constant dynamism of Yin and Yang, the trial and error of creation. Watch your inconsistencies with detachment and you will also discern the emergence of true intention.

Accepting the existential aspect of existence.

Today offers you the opportunity to accept without guilt, judgement or blame that the full polarity of your life right now, as it IS, is a result of the totality frequency of your energy. This profound acceptance opens the door to becoming a true sovereign of your own life experience.

Your life is a direct result of the sum totality of your energy, ie your choices on every level of your psyche.

The Law of Attraction is basically true, but it takes more than momentary desire to manifest because of the intentions and desires that are locked into the unconscious from previous excitements – and when we say previous, we also mean pre- and past life.

The bigger the dream, the more persistence is required to overcome the objections within us... However, those objections to our heated desire do often have value.

When we look at our life in all of its fullness, we can appreciate the full spectrum of choices (many of which are invisible to us right now) that have brought us here, now.

The momentary mind will react with frustration to the suggestion that we created the limitations we experience, but if we can recognize the fullness of our life as it stands, we can move into the space of acceptance and, of course, gratitude.

Enjoyment of existential reality – life as art in its mundane expression – versus a need to change and grow.

Within the most mundane of circumstances lies the most extraordinary of realities. Likewise, the ‘matter of fact’ is found within the bizarre circuses of the universe.

1 Flower (Sun, or Lord)

The timewave of Flower, Sun or Lord (Ahau) brings you the consciousness of your sovereign being-ness. The totality of your being attracts everything into your life; the totality of your being, the whole spectrum, provides you with your life experience.

Connect to yourself now, accepting who you are, as you are at this moment, as the foundation for your sovereign power.

Too often we are told that we ‘need’ things – we need this training or that qualification, or we need years of therapy, or we need salvation via the priest, etc.

But your life force, your connection to life, is yours and is immediately available.

The Power of Light, the real power of creation, is the subtle energy and consciousness of LIGHT.

Light contains all frequencies.

Today begins 13 days of becoming more conscious of how you are sovereign of your life experience.

Move into vibrational resonance with that which you desire by feeling you already have it. If you truly desire it – from the depths of your being – the feeling of ‘having-ness’ will make you feel happy. Be that which your heart desires.

Light is subtle. The subtle is the real power – all else follows.

13 Storm

Let go as usual on Day 13, but as this is a Storm day, release with more vitality than normal. This is more of a joyous release that energizes you. 

Release anger and frustration by allowing it and then pushing through it. Release all attachments, all assumptions and separation stories.

Remember that chaos brings freedom – you pay with uncertainty, but can tap into the unlimited energy supply of existence.

Reality is compartmentalized. When one compartment becomes too inhibitory, we are offered the chance to break free from its constraints – this takes effort. However, today you get a glimpse of the intrinsic simplicity of releasing the self from the rigid context boxes.

All perceptions of reality are partial. Enjoy the rejuvenation of recognizing that potentiality is always present. No matter how it looks, Life is bigger.

If you are inspired in a diverse and scattered manner today, take heart – any form of overwhelm will allow you to integrate on a higher level in the next timewave.

A day of freeing the self. Release the self and allow your energy to return.

12 Obsidian (Obsidian Mirror, Flint)

A good day to understand that the multiple dimensions of reality are both compartmentalized and separate from each other to some degree, yet have a fractal reflective relationship with each other. Each dimension is a reflection of others, but in a fuzzy form.

A good day to see truth with absolute clarity on one dimension of reality, knowing with equal clarity that this insight does not apply totally, nor exactly, to the next dimension. Truth is reflected and distorted on each of the multiple realms, but what is true on one level, is true for now on that level.

The self-sufficiency of existence on each separate level of being.’ Dr Marc Edmund Jones (1888–1980; ‘dean of American astrology’ and creator of the Sabian Symbols, with clairvoyant Else Wheeler in 1925).

Consciousness reflects upon itself all the way up and all the way down the epic construct of creation. Each level of reality is a diffracted reflection of light and consciousness.

The unlimited diversity of all consciousness and form in existence is processed by the human psyche through various levels. Each level of the psyche steps down, decodes filters and translates with its own appropriate level of complexity.

The unfolding manifestation of consciousness requires an oscillating focus of consciousness.

The basic structure of our civilization utilizes various calibrations, including a seven-day repeating cycle of planetary frequencies: Sunday-Sun day, Monday-Moon day, Tuesday-Mars day, Wednesday-Mercury day, Thursday-Jupiter day, Friday-Venus day, Saturday-Saturn day.

In the Tzolkin (that is, the Mayan Sacred Calendar, one of 17 interlocking calendars used by the Maya), the dance of frequencies and calibrations is far more complex, comprising the 20 Day Signs (or Daykeepers) and 13 Tones (or Numbers). The dance of diversity spirals and rotates in multiple directions, taking you towards radial time consciousness.

Another way of understanding radial time is quite simply through contemplating fractals. The Mayan Sacred Calendar is a strongly fractal system; the numbers of the Tzolkin can be found within many planetary cycles, as well as within the Galactic cycle.

To calibrate your consciousness with the Terrestrial–Galactic interface requires only a relatively short period of focus, considering our lifetime of standard time conditioning.

Assiduous focus on this system organically initiates you as a ‘Daykeeper’. If you follow this calendar and put some energy into the system, you will encode the system into your energy field quite strongly by 520 days (ie two Mayan Sacred Calendar years, each of which is 260 days). The process is especially powerfully if you draw the glyphs each day and do some free association with the signs as part of your daily journalling.

After the Chiron return at around 52 years of age, people often have a golden period of integration. Fifty-two is the common frequency between our standard calendar and the Tzolkin. Seven multiples of 52 gives us the Solar year (364 days), we have 52 weeks in a year; five multiples of 52 gives us our 260-day Mayan Sacred Calendar year.

11 Earthmover

A day to release pressures building in the unconscious and to open doors that lead you beyond stuck polarities. The door opens into the field of light, the holographic aspect of your psyche.

As ever on all Earthmover days, follow the synchronic ripples you encounter, for they are your personal interactions with the movements in the time/space field.

Keywords for today are flexibility, adaptability and spontaneity. Today brings the opportunity to slide through a crack into a new opportunity. If you get pushed one way, follow that momentum through the revolving door of the electromagnetic energy field.

Recalibration of your energy through stepping to the side. The door will appear; it will be subtle, but if you are tuned into this 260-day frequency, you will be alerted. Set yourself an alarm.

Perhaps use a simple affirmation of ‘Earthmover, change direction NOW.’ Say it now. It can act as your subconscious alarm-call when the door opens today.

Today is also about releasing tension, as in a small quake now to stop a big quake later.

The value of contrast in order to move on and to break out of polarized blocks.

For me, the most powerful catalyst for refreshing life and opening the heart to the unending opportunity, experience and appreciation available to us is through visiting new places. The rush you get from being in a new environment, with its unique natural landscape and cultural atmosphere, is without doubt one of the most precious things we can do for ourselves.

Maybe this is something for you to consider today. Where do you need to visit in order to refresh and regenerate?

10 Vulture (Warrior, Owl)

Today a profound sense of your personal truth can emerge in your awareness, a truth that is balanced.

Alternatively, a position that you have decided upon recently can be seen more fully due to the revealed contrast of feelings, perception or needs that you hold in your psyche.

When to hold, when to let go?

Be still, then...

Today you will see what you need to grasp and hold onto.

Coherent truth manifests. This is an expression of your essence; this is your strength.

Today is a day of strength. Today is a day to acknowledge the appearance of true strength.

Hold your ground and realize your power, the power that is natural and divine and in accord with all that is good.

Be still, be the peace…

9 Eagle

Today, 9 Eagle, is a day of penetrating clarity of thought as we confront startling truths. 9 Eagle is a day of power and vision, yet it also offers the compassion that comes from a profound spiritual truth – the truth that the world is enchanting; that from the spirit’s point of view, this is a theatre.

The illusion of the world is permanence, the game is full of deceptions – but we take part in those deceptions. Why? Because the world is an enchantment, and we are waking up slowly to the nature of the virtuality of reality.

9 Eagle is about flying above the polarities that lie below, whilst integrating heart and mind. Compassionate yet discerning thought yields the rewards today, as you feel fully awake in the realm between Heaven and Earth.

Time cycles reveal themselves on Nine days. In the 2012 era, which is where we are, there is an opportunity to understand time on a whole new level. You may well gain some inspiration in this area today.

Today, pay attention to any image that catches your imagination as it can serve as a portal.


The Golden Record of 1977:
NASA placed an ambitious message aboard Voyager 1 and 2 in 1977.
This was a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world
to any extraterrestrials out there.

 

General Introduction for New Viewers
The 260 days of the Mayan Sacred Calendar is a fractal of 26,000 tun (one tun is the Mayan 360-day cycle) that measures the galactic spin.

The 260-day calendar has resonance with individual human gestation (266 days on average), while the 26,000 years (approximately) of the galactic cycle measures the development of the whole human species in ways we are not yet sure of, but which probably mark the duration of a ‘mutation’ of the species – a birth of new consciousness.

At the very least, we are in the midst of a change bigger than the industrial revolution. Do not go to sleep. Perceive with your intuitive visionary capability the enormity of the drama we are playing in right now.

By following the 260-day calendar, we move into resonance with Galactic consciousness and with species’ issues. Our relationship with time and space changes.

8 Jaguar

Commit to your shamanic instincts today as an integral part of navigating the world we live in. It is easy to get swept along with the technological perspective on life and to devalue the foundation of material existence (the body) as product of the natural world.

Stay alert and call upon Earth Magic, for you are a warrior protector of this vital, beautiful and precious planet and we need you in your power.

Navigating reality requires the ability to face and accept the Shadow — both within yourself and within your friends, your family, your lover and the mother of all scary shadows of the world we live in — without getting lost in the admittedly undeniable darkness and seeing it as all there is.

The Light is stronger and the shaman within you knows this instinctively.

The Galactic awakening of the 2012 era requires this level of commitment from an increasing number of us.

What we need is humour and acceptance, as well as openness of mind and a radical playful spirit in a world of relative truth, dark powerful agendas and social confusion. The Dark Game is a smaller context than the Light of Creation, which infuses our everyday lives.

Commit to playing in the game of duality whilst connecting to the unity through your body intelligence. Get out into nature if you can.

[Extra text from Laurence, posted on 8 Jaguar, of 9 March 2016, during the Piscean Eclipse, much of which is still relevant today]

The Eclipse has begun and the fog-shroud of energy is tangible and visible. A dissolute feeling is present. I am off to the hills for the eclipse...

I walked to my favourite spot and, as usual, just before the eclipse the energy was quite disorientating, perhaps especially with this one as I found it hard to evoke structurally. However, I got the point of connection almost exactly (3 minutes or so before) at the pinnacle of the eclipse and new moon. The clouds opened and a shaft of sunlight burst through the fog. I then felt a sense of calm, and after 5 minutes I lay down and fell asleep, for a few minutes only.

I had a dream, again very simple, which explained that it does not matter what people worship or call their god – they are all just symbols or representations of the ultimate divinity.

Nothing earth-shattering in itself, but I think it shows how the eclipse is manifesting. The general sense was that the eclipse was about the totality of life. My mind was trying to grasp onto things and seek inspirations, as it does, but there was nothing to hold onto in a smaller sense – it was about the essence and the conduit we use to connect to an enormity that is too large to grasp, yet ever present.

I stand by my work that suggests we as a species are being challenged to re-vision the meta-myth of society and I would add that is through our own intimate inquiry.

Application and action might be best achieved by persevering and mastering a specific area, your niche area of interest or vocation, whilst recognizing that a more expansive heritage is available for you to draw upon. Detach from the precepts, foundational conditioning, assumptions, commandments and ‘givens’ that you may have learnt, and look to connect to a much larger potential. Draw upon divinity to show you a new way forward in your work.

One step at a time... 

There is a collective theme of loss of faith* and so we need to re-establish a faith that does not rely upon our old gods or old authorities and old heroes (obviously this encompasses all of the mainstream authority figures).

In your creative endeavours, this opens the door to innovation and drawing upon inspiration from a paradigm outside of your niche interest in order to re-vision your approach.

I am talking in a general sense of course, but the specific effect for you will depend upon the transits to your own astrological chart.

* Note from Carey: This was particularly relevant in March 2016, with Jupiter opposite Chiron, but still valid today.
Note from Carey: Laurence wrote many articles about the timeline choice we are facing, much of which he posted on his Mystic Cyber Crow blogsite, up to and including a matter of weeks before his passing. Mystic Cyber Crow was the blogsite perhaps particularly closest to Laurence's heart, where he could write about and share much of his inspiration, theories, musings and insights. Many articles are 'unedited', in the sense that Laurence wrote in a stream of consciousness as soon as he was inspired or impelled to put his incredible thinking and feeling down in words.
     This was his mission, to share his wisdom, experience, knowledge, and profound understanding of life.

7 Reed (Skywalker)

On Day 7 of every timewave, the energy of the timewave which resonates with Heaven and Earth is revealed. Seven days have a magical resonant feeling; there is an awareness of ‘as above, so below’, or a sense of the timeless moment being present in the day through the filter of the glyph.

The inherent ethic of creation is present on Day 7 in all timewaves. Seven is the resonance with wholeness, not in absolute detail or high sophistication, but it does reveal the general soft-focus view of the whole.

The Deer Timewave reveals its energy as being resonant with the observer mind today.

You can get a good detached view of your whole life today, whilst still operating and enjoying the mundane or ‘normal’ level of reality.

A good day to move into resonance with a higher perspective of reality, whilst functioning in a normal everyday kind of way. Your actions can feel in accord with the divine will.

6 Good Road (Human, Grass)

Open yourself to the flow. Affluence is being in the flow, regardless of your bank balance; just be open enough to allow the flow.

The road ahead opens up through people. Stay open to people and you are living abundantly – simple, but sometimes challenging.

A day of understated harmony and rhythm on the Mayan Galactic frequency. Beneath the chaos of the world frequency is the Tzolkin frequency and, on that level, today is a day of harmony.

Flowing in a direction, yet going with the swirls.

Surrender to the stream.

5 Monkey

The Deer timewave is about navigating the ever-changing emergent world. This consciousness is the recognition of the unpredictable nature of life’s exact unfoldment.

Monkey is the spirit who is at home with the truth of the trickster, whose domain is in the details and lateral potentials. Monkey is at home here because Monkey is the creative trickster.

Come back to that part within you that knows life really is a game. Radiating out from the centre of your being is your own free will, which is a monkey unto itself.

Today, recognize the truth that outcomes may not be exactly what we expect (notably in regards to specific timing of manifestations). This will keep us alert and awake. The universe is always generating randomness within the context of its overall direction.

Today is also a good day to be conscious of the many faces that life shows us. All masks veil and express the unified consciousness. Empower yourself by accepting that the trickster Monkey is an essential part of creation.

4 Dog

The foundation for the elastic strength of the Deer Timewave starts with emotional security. Feel the emotional boundaries you operate within.

We all have our family, including ancestral, friends and work colleagues.

Today, recognize the feeling of belonging that you enjoy through the people you find yourself with.

This day is a day to truly feel into your emotional needs – all of them – as a way of recognizing that your foundation is your emotional body. Feeling and accepting the emotional body is not the same as reacting to and living according to the dictates of the emotional kaleidoscope.

Feel it all as the juice within you; hold onto the impulses.

A good day to recognize and consciously set and embrace your own emotional limits.

The Full Moon will obviously amplify any feelings and emotions. Stay conscious.]

3 Water (Moon)

Transmissions and emanations from the soul.

A general sense of charged emotional energy, anticipation, agitation, anxiety or excitement without a definite, discernible reason is present today. Hold it lightly; this is the engine of your soul revving up and warming up.

Alternatively, today feel the flow of energy as one thing gradually flows into another. See the day as a wave form, or as wave forms, cresting and falling, then rising again. To stay in the flow, utilize the power of Water and offer yourself to Life. Be ready to give to the moment and to share.

Allow deeper feeling to surface and you will find that you can quite naturally communicate from the soul, cleansing hidden emotions whilst giving permission to others to do the same.

Allow different areas of concern or interest to merge and overlap. Stay in the flow and you will find that staccato or oscillating thoughts, fuelled by tension and adrenaline, will dissolve into natural movement. A day of confluence.

Offer gratitude to Life and release tension with simple evocations of acceptance. Feel a connectivity that is fluid yet strong.

Adaptation is spiritual power.


[Today is Laurence's Mayan birthday. Here is a message he posted on 3 Water of 18 June 2015:]


My Tzolkin birthday
'I was up at 4.15am this morning so that I could leave the house at daylight to do my ceremony outside in my favourite sacred place. As often as I do it, I still forget the power of connectivity and vitality that comes from opening to nature and allowing the natural energies to come through me.

'This morning I was singing/toning an Arabic-esque chant that filled the valley. This is the wonder – the world and the computer, the information realm and social vibration overwhelm the natural connectivity so easily – every ceremony is a renewal and a remembering.

'Get outside for sunrise, I urge you, especially on your own Tzolkin birthday. I find by doing this every 260 days, I get gifted with tremendous inspiration and insights...

'I am busy working on my new Alchemy project. Praise be!

'Happy birthday to me.'

2 Rabbit (Star)

The diversity of all that attracts us can overwhelm us with promise, opportunity, beauty, brilliance, splendour and bliss – it is all too much if we try to grasp.

All that glitters is not gold, and yet the sparkle of life is a reflection of divinity and is here for us to enjoy and celebrate.

Today you can feel the promise, the pull and the attraction of opposing forms and appearances. You may hear a desperate call within you to attend to one thing and negate another. On Two days, we can feel the duality inherent in our life. The multiplicity of appealing entertainment and urgent needs is actually a reminder of how extraordinarily abundant and omnidirectional life truly is.

Focus primarily on the vortex within the centre of it all – this is the white hole that gives birth to the abundance of all that is in your life.

Today, enjoy some diversity without getting sucked into one reality tunnel.

1 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

After Jaguar Timewave comes the timewave of Deer (also known as Hand, or Grasp; Manik), starting today.

In the next 13 days, the Mayan Sacred Calendar guides you in the art of control. This timewave offers us the opportunity to learn how to respond appropriately to life; to know when to hold on and when to let go.

Deer or Hand is elusive and graceful, yet deceptively strong. So begins 13 days to awaken your spiritual power and nobility. The lesson of Deer is how to follow the ebb and flow of energies, which requires an ability to have the correct degree and balance of tension and relaxation, knowing when to hold on and when to let go. Because Deer (or Hand) responds so instinctively to rhythmic changes of energy, this is considered the natural sign of the Mayan Daykeeper.

Deer utilizes the diversity of organic tools at hand. Deer is fleeting and yet makes itself known; Deer knows stillness and silence, yet has great speed and vitality.

Navigate the full range of your capabilities and talents and recognize your masculine and feminine traits during this timewave. Deer are natural Daykeepers for they can respond easily and effortlessly to the rhythmic change of energies.

Hold, then release; hold the moment delicately with some alertness.

13 Skull

Today you find your detachment. That which interests you and that which you own will not possess you.

Today allows for the strength of mind to cut through fears by detaching from lower-level dramas and willing yourself to transcend to a freer realm of activity.

Thirteen is the master number of spiralling movement and growth; it is in resonance with the Lunar Cycle and is a Fibonacci number. Thirteen is the movement into mystery, as we leave the orderly and rational temporarily behind. Skull is the power to cut free and start again.

Today, you have the opportunity to cut through illusion, to free the self from unnecessary attachments. The teaching of today is to recognize the aspect of the self that is free from obligation and is uncompromising. Although we all have to make adjustments and allowances to be part of the world, there is a line that is drawn which the world cannot cross. Your line is based on your ethics, personal axioms and, ultimately, your unique mode of being without undue sentiment…

Even if you renege a little (
by allowing it back into your life later) on that which you reject now, there is great strength in making an energetic stand of rejecting that which you consider to be standing in the way of transformation and growth. This may include social peer group pressures. Do not acquiesce to that which seems to have power over you, if it is not feeding you; yield on the surface if you really have to, but not in the core of your being.

Remember that life is forever changing and you can continually start again and free yourself from anything that is unduly compromising your essence.

The Jaguar Timewave ends today. Jaguar is a warrior of the night and is in service to the Earth goddess; Jaguar is a spirit that reveres the wild and natural, who is able to face the darkness and flourish. Jaguar illuminates the shadow with other-dimensional light. Jaguar frees us from the sterilizing aspects of civilization.

12 Serpent

Understanding the importance of spending time in nature and the vitality it gives you.

Be in the natural body, connected to nature and allowing your mind and emotions to follow the energy it gives you.

And....

A day of understanding the instinctive level of reality. A day where you can connect to your own survival instinct and survival impulse. Today is a good day to recognize how the biorhythms shape our psychology and how they are interlinked with the invisible environment.

The snake is the manifest expression of kundalini life force, the power to live and evolve. Serpent issues are issues of sex and power. The battle for power in the world takes place on many fronts and includes the agendas of many covert groups on Earth, but ultimately the whole drama of our evolution is part of the cosmic theatre. We exist in a living universe and life is everywhere. Our kundalini plugs us into the cosmic drama and the evolutionary imperative of creation.

The 2012 effect is a recalibration of the Earth’s energy field. The total consciousness of the Human Species is a significant, arguably the primary component of the environment within which we move around. Our environment is the total planetary organism, as defined by the Earth’s energy and consciousness field, that interpenetrates and encompasses the electromagnetic field.

Our task is to stay conscious and to recognize the planetary level of change. By so doing, we come into alignment with the evolutionary necessity – even a small minority of people doing so will ensure survival and growth. Awakened consciousness resonates with the evolutionary impulse and therefore acts as the conduit for the transformational impulse.

Human culture emits a frequency and the frequency needs to be upgraded. As individuals, we cannot take on the responsibility of changing the culture directly – it is overwhelming and the overt power is in the hands of lower consciousness, in particular those souls enslaved by power lust.

However, as individuals we can act as nodes and conduits – unseen by the external radars – for the energy force to flow through.

Quite simply, recognize the larger view of time and space and connect intellectually, intuitively and emotionally to the evolutionary energy of change that is unmistakable. You will then be coming into alignment with the life force currents.

Good for you, good for me, good for us all.

11 Lizard (Seed)

Opening the doors between what are normally compartmentalized realities. A day of modification; allow new energy in.

Seed is the first stage of abundance. All plants, or animals for that matter, produce a disproportionate number of seeds; nature allows for what we call ‘waste’ by producing the seeds for new life in magnificent abundance. The Lizard is a sophisticated absorber of the Sun and has a capacity to store sunlight. Sunlight, and the subtle energy of prana, is the pre-manifest seed of life.

If you feel indebted, today offers the energy for your liberation.

Today is the 11th day of the Jaguar Timewave – the Jaguar Timewave is all about an instinctive level of reality. The Jaguar prowls the shadows, the underworld and the night with a relaxed alertness, knowing that opportunity is omnipresent. Eleven is the number of adaptation of form; it is the open gate, the frequency of the transparency of all form.

Today, do not solidify your situation with rationality – instead be of an open mind, be flexible and spontaneous like a cat.

In the shadow of the world, new life, light and opportunity gestate. Be confident about the true abundance of life and allow yourself to absorb. Respond to the glimpses of feeling that life is offering you abundance, with a playful and easy affirmative gnosis.

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

The subtle, almost indefinable presence of the soul is ubiquitous.

The subject becomes object as you become conscious of the atmosphere. The environment you walk in is an environment of consciousness. The physical world is not solid. A good day to walk through walls.

The manifestation of the dreamlike space between the worlds.

The Cosmos and the atom are mainly space, but space is an emptiness that is full.



[Extra text from Laurence, posted on 20 November 2011: ]
The picture above is of Real De Catorce, Mexico, a place I visited in 1997 with no money and rather unexpectedly. After a few days of enforced semi-fasting, I had a vision of 2012 whilst sitting here at dawn, overlooking the mountains.

The town is slightly haunted. It is an ex-silver-mining town with crumbling walls and buildings and is gateway to the peyote desert. It is melancholic and beautiful; the land is wistful and so are the people.

The atmosphere of Real De Catorce at that time for me was wholly permeable and it was where I stayed at the end of a six-month trip that yielded the harvest of the Mayan experience.



Click here to read Laurence's poem of his vision, experienced while in the Foredawn space, of a city he came to believe was in China, and later – after we had held shamanic workshops there – felt sure was a vision of Guangzhou.

9 Wind

A day of clarity. After the almost undifferentiated energy of Crocodile comes the activator energy of Wind.

Nine Days are always wake-up calls on some level.

Can you hear that booming voice within you, telling you to speak or write with surety? Can you hear the voice from deep within you, which is a decisive, uncompromising activating force that is either welling up or surging to the surface of your psyche?

You remember a truth that comes from beyond time.

Today is a good day to be decisive.



Saturday, 29 July 2017

8 Crocodile

Today, 8 Crocodile, make the commitment to move into accepting who you are and feeling the nourishment that life is looking to give to you.

Nurture yourself and others; be patient with your desire to renew your life; set a deep resolve for change that recognizes the reality of how ingrained your habits are.

Activities that emphasize sustenance and maintenance are in accord with the Mayan energy of the day. Practical activities that support the nourishment of your life are highlighted. Keep your life going, and feel the viscous emergence of that which is emerging.

A day of commitment to essential acceptance and trust.

Being the Mystery
Crocodile is also the primal force that gives birth to all things. What new undifferentiated essence has been born in you? The birth of energy today is one of appreciation, lovingness, protection and care, rather than a surge forward with any goal-orientated project.

Whatever you are doing, simply appreciate the juice of life and sustain life with a sense of the slow, forward movement that emerges from the depth of your primal roots.

Feel into the mystery and recognize the ongoing emanation that springs from the Goddess.

[Message from Laurence:]
Healing Superstars
One of the myths of the new age is that to heal ourselves means to rid ourselves of our stuff.

I suggest ‘healing’ actually means acceptance, accepting all the levels of one’s being. You were a child and now you have an inner child – I don’t care if you are a world leader, a guru, a political journalist or a hard-nosed scientist, that brat and/or little sweetie still lives within.

The healing is the acceptance, which then allows us to gain some detachment from the lower levels of our psyche. We do not need to be ruled by the lower levels of our psyche, but we can acknowledge and accept them.

7 Flower (Sun, Lord)

Harmonic Resonance with Your Divine Light
A day of feeling the resonance with the subtle light. The frequency of light you are attuned to could come in many forms – ancestral guidance, simple radiance, a sense of power, an opening of the heart.

To feel resonant, keep the day as simple as possible, if you can. Do not be tempted to expend it all; stay sensitized and allow the natural flowering to occur and you will shine where it is appropriate.

A day where your divinity is empowered.

Express your sovereignty easily; be in your authority naturally.

[Extra Message from Laurence, extracted from a post on 7 Flower of 10 Nov 2016, but still relevant today:]
The people cannot look to government if they want to change the world – the change HAS to be about consciousness, research, awareness, investigation, small gatherings and grassroots systemic consciousness from the space of stillness of mind.

When change happens to an individual, he or she can often regress to old coping mechanisms. This is what is happening now on a collective level. The old theatre is completely finished; there is no return. But the world will try everything to find the solution in the old ways, just as any individual does when in crisis.

Do not look to the masses or the system, come back to centre and do not let your buttons be pushed.


[Note: Laurence wrote this in response to the 2016 US presidential election and the general sense of negativity in the socioeconomic and political world today, as a reminder to us of our own instinctive intelligence and our ability to evolve in a new way, as sovereign individuals.]

6 Storm

Ideally, dance through the day. 

The tension and background chaos keeps you on your toes and keeps you responsive, alert and moving into the new space of freedom that is continually opening up in front of you. 

Staying one step ahead brings you a sense of exhilaration as you recognize that you enjoy the novelty of the Storm Day.

Respond to the deep body impulses, the consciousness within the cellular matrix, as knots within your energy field reveal themselves and then dissolve as you keep on flowing.

Systemically cleanse the soul of concern for the world, clear the negativity, free the mind from the global drama, break free from the matrix throughout the day, acknowledge the emerging fears, darkness and negative hooks that are flying around...

Keep clearing and breaking free.

5 Obsidian

‘Though I walk through the valley of shadows…’

What do we see when we look out into the world with the penetrating X-ray eyes of a cat? We see the dark agendas, the lower-spectrum frequencies, yet we know that this is just the terrain we walk through into the illuminated landscape.

The smoky mirror of romantic yearnings and infinite possibilities comes with the sadness of never being able to fully embody all potential.

We incarnate through a funnelling vortex. The vortex is a darkening veil of forgetfulness that spirals down to a point of light, which is the Star Gate that we pierce as the soul jumps through into the physical world.

Today, listen to the courage of your heart to look through the dark mirror and smoky veils to see the light source.

Today, more of your soul seeks to incarnate or descend into form, into the light of day.

A good day to turn obstacles into opportunity through being centred and reflecting back energy. A negative carries the seeds of a positive within it, just turn it inside out.

Find your own centre and move through the smoke as best you can. Stay centred in your radiance.

4 Earthmover

What energy are you drawing from the Earth? What are your roots and what has taken root in your life? Survival is dependent upon connecting through the body into the Earth force.

The basic imprint of the evolutionary agenda in your life – and in Life in general – is present in this day. Life is forever changing. Today you can recognize how the tectonic plates of reality are constantly moving and sliding. However, the life force impulse is coherent and is underlying the shifting terrain.

Today you sense an enduring underlying interconnection. A re-occurring idea or feeling that you have had throughout your life resurfaces into your awareness.

The 260-day pulse of the Sacred Mayan Calendar reveals the Galactic pulse on Earth.

The associations of the Gregorian Calendar, with its 24-hour clock, 7-day week and 12-month year, weave solid baskets of thought all around us. Can you walk in this contextual structure and yet also awaken to the numinous potency of the 260-day vibration?

Create roots in the shifting context and find your own sovereign connection, whilst navigating the fluctuating social environment. The world is in high flux due to the evolutionary change we are in the midst of it; it is down to each of us to create our own foundation each and every day.

Today is a great day for synchronizing your field with your own energetic foundation.





'The City' by LjL.
Laurence loved walking around in the city of Hong Kong, with its glamorous pulse and its 7-day week structure, while still connecting to the 260-day pulse of the Mayan Sacred Calendar and maintaining his deep and strong connection to the Earth force
and his own energetic foundation.

3 Vulture (Warrior, Owl)

The key phrase is ‘coming into alignment’.

A day to feel energized by your power. If you connect to the Mayan Sacred Calendar frequency today, you will feel strong and confident.

Draw upon the wisdom of the past, or your innate wisdom, to feel the move towards the centre. The central column within you carries the essence of all that you have experienced.

A day of moving towards an integrated confidence; a confidence based not on arrogance, but instead based on your own experience.

A good day to validate and reinforce that which you know. Recognize that your life experience gives you authority to be the author of your life.

There is a need to go forward with resolute strength, knowing the social terrain is uncertain, as energy is being released from all outworn structures. Fortune favours those who can keep on reconnecting to their centre on a daily basis, moving forward with Sacred Warrior attitude tempered with elasticity.

We have to accept the world is in a state of massive change and that there is an air of uncertainty and fragility – and yet there is the possibility of an incremental jump forward. From this foundation of knowledge, we can find the resolve to work with the energy and we can prosper.

It is not a time to be weak or to seek excuses. Remember to continually re-find your strength on a daily basis and that personal responsibility to your sovereign calling is required. Feel the pulse that comes from within you; do not expect the social environment to be a comfort. Stay away from the mob and be your own person, for all our sakes.

Quiet resolve, open alertness, determination to keep coming back to the core, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep on stepping forward. Feel the force of a highly energized environment and adapt to it and it will befriend you. Life wants change.


Laurence James Lucas, my own Sacred Warrior, who loved life and embraced all.
Today is four months since he made the transition out of our Earthly realms into the Cosmos. Forever loved.

2 Eagle (and New Moon)

Today, dual visions compete in your soul; two futures present themselves. This is a good day to see the inherent contrast of your life, your self, your needs and your aspirations.

Emotional tension can be strong today as your heart tries to reconcile your sense of the ubiquitous duality of life.

The underworld door has opened and the world has two visions – one is dystopian, the other is egalitarian abundance. Within this polarity lies creativity from the friction, but the good should win out over all.

Day Two in every timewave is about polarity and also about relationship. The contrast of opposites helps us differentiate and gain great clarity about the whole, leading to a more conscious unity.

Hold the dual forces within you, knowing that this tension is part of the creative process.

1 Jaguar

The Jaguar (Ix) Timewave starts today.

Thirteen days ahead in which you can experience the enchanting nature of reality. Jaguar consciousness pulls you into the evocative environment, the captivating and seductive magical thread that runs throughout existence. Reality is enchanting and the world of rationality is interesting – but the mind-dominated reality of our society is a limited and watered-down version of existence.

The Jaguar Timewave brings you into the experience of how everything is alive; this is vitalizing and electric. Life is visceral and this gives you the opportunity to cut through outworn defences and to feel connected.

Thirteen days of Catlike instinctive connection begins today; a chance to be responsive to the energy of the Earth and to your immediate environment. The energy is more feminine than masculine during this timewave.

The Maya consider the Jaguar to be the Shaman. Instinctive intelligence is body-based telepathic connection – images and thoughts of a telepathic nature arise from the result of visceral connection to the electroplasmic currents that surround you.

Today gives you access to your instinctive sovereign power – the courage to be who you are without apology and alert to the fact that everything you need right now is available right now. 

Are you riding the waves?

Feel the way the energy of the Sacred Mayan Calendar shifts from one cosmic coordinate to another, teaching you how to shift your assemblage point, as in Toltec Shamanism.

13 Reed (Skywalker)

Expansive Light
Free the mind from the dictates of necessity and free the soul.

Today the mind might feel scattered; this is veiling the freedom inherent within the day. A good day to construct complex patterns of knowledge, or to acknowledge that a higher level of complexity will emerge after this day.

The higher mind feels free to roam in all directions and observe the abstract. Welcome bizarre thoughts as they push the boundaries of your consciousness deep within the Earth, way out into Space and beyond the limits of the normal Time restraints.

Explore Atlantis, the Akashic records or just enjoy a sense of vitalized intuition.

Today, energy is in a heightened state of flux; it has a chaotic element which can lead to a new level of organization.

The structures and patterns of life are re-organizing themselves.

Stay connected to the benevolent intent of the life force that oversees all disruption.

12 Good Road (Human, Grass)

A day of understanding that is an open-ended understanding, rather than being conclusive. Enjoy the journey of insights as the adventure unfolds.

The 12th day of every timewave gives us a clear sense of the message of the whole timewave. Crocodile Timewave has a basic theme of nurturing, birthing and female wisdom.

The Grass Daykeeper, also known as Human in the new age system, and the Good Road by the indigenous Maya, refers to the abundance of the human community and the universal quality of life’s journey.

Everyone is on an adventure, the enjoyment of which is dependent upon retaining an openness to life and recognising the possibilities of new adventures around the next bend. What stops this adventure is when the mind becomes fixed and absolute about life – our own life or the nature of life.

Today, embrace the uncertainty of these times and the edge of uncertainty about knowledge and you will be in resonance with the path of humanity.

An edge of uncertainty does not mean you/we know nothing. It is easy in today’s overwhelming information environment to throw our arms in the air and announce that all truth is equal and therefore nothing can be embraced. This is a cop out. You have learned much from your life experience and this needs to be honoured. So walk towards the horizon of uncertainty with confidence in what is true for you.

Now open your heart to life before you. 

Today, you are an empty vessel on an adventure, willing to receive the nourishment that life is always offering you.

11 Monkey

Today is a day to loosen up. Trickery and cosmic humour force you to play, whether you want to or not. See the funny side. Be lateral. Today is a strange mix that offers a chance for fresh inspiration, if you can let go of the mind’s obsessive need for control.

Today you are being asked to create some space for more expression, more emotional elasticity. It is less about conclusions and solutions, more about spontaneity and laughter – perhaps a little twisted, quirky or delightfully perverse.

The texture of today – the energy of 11 Monkey – invites you to unusually nurture your soul, for the soul needs to be elastic if it is to flourish.

Monkey frees up the emotional body today in the 260-day count. Allow yourself to be more imaginative about the world we live in and the nature of time and space.

The 260-day Tzolkin (the Mayan Sacred Calendar) is the calendrical calibration of the soul’s cosmic nature as it interfaces with our density – which is to also to say that the Tzolkin is the key to understanding the galactic interface with Earth and this is the ‘secret’ of the 2012 era. Although we can all see the sociological and environmental effects of the 2012 phenomenon, the essence of 2012 is a re-calibration of the Earth with the Galaxy, creating an evolutionary imperative to raise consciousness in the decades after 2012 itself.

One of the more obvious effects is an alteration to the temporal substance –we seem to have less time in a day. The consensual timeframe that we experience at present is losing energy and a less dense level of experience/consciousness with a larger timeframe is being empowered.

Those who have their self-interest heavily invested in the outgoing density are attempting to close the doors, to keep us locked into the economic theatre and that density. But if enough people shift their focus out of the mainstream economic and political game, then the old theatre will dissolve to reveal a more abundant and expansive terrain.

Of course that is easier said than done, but one way or another, a new focus and energy attention will emerge. Our role is to shift our attention and our energy into alignment with the evolutionary imperative.

Find the role player warrior within, the part of yourself that is strong enough to play the game with a sense of mission and humour.

10 Dog

10 Dog in the Crocodile timewave manifests as our emotional needs being fully apparent. Today you can see the manifest state of your emotional body and really feel what it is you really need.

The essential and general needs for us all can be simply stated as being happiness and an avoidance of suffering. These are mostly found through relating to others, whilst having an attitude of gratitude about what is good in our experience right now.

Today is a day of communal emotive connection, or a good day to be peaceful and to feel the truth of what you need.

Ask yourself what it is you truly and honestly actually need for yourself. Need rather than want.

The answer will include people.
