7 Jaguar

[Wednesday 21 August 2019]

Jaguar is at home in the shadows. Today you have a resonant connection to the underworld, or a shadow perspective on all that glitters.

Cave Wall by LjL
'Cave art images are gleaned from psychotropic states
on another frequency of reality.'

The bright-light glamour of the material world, the allure of charisma, and the magnetic attraction of people and places all spring from cosmic light. The light of the stars shines with wonder from the inky night sky.

However, the glamour of the consensual world is fading, so we are being asked to look into the darkness, beyond the foreground bright lights that are being presented to us, in order to see the next level of luminosity. The Earth is recalibrating and we are to come into resonance with the powerful influx from the cosmos in this 2012 era.*

Yet to do this requires the instincts of the stalking jaguar; there is no herd to follow.

Be brave, strike out into the darkness and stalk your power. Today you can feel that resonance.

Black Panther Spirit by Diane Neubauer

Use your imagination evocatively. The imagination is your interface with other dimensions – it contains your filters and your personal way of translating and perceiving, but it is the interface. The virtual world of the imagination is a two-way mirror and, if you activate your imagination, you will learn to be receptive to incoming imagery not generated by your mind.

Today is a good day to be evocative.

You can transcend easy definitions of good and bad and enable yourself to be playful with the astral realms whilst holding the light. Sometimes we must venture into unknown realms in order to gain the necessary power for our survival in this world.

The activated imagination acts as an invitation to the ‘otherness’ of the Sacred Calendar we are following here, an invitation for the spirit of Supranature to pierce your walls of perception. Life is anthropomorphic – it really is alive; this is not just our projection. The Mayan Sacred Calendar** is attuned to the life forms that inhabit the living field which permeates our planet and galaxy.

Today, attune to the veiled but immanent energy and enjoy your instinctive intelligence. A good day for shamanic awakening and a connection to the magic of life; today is a good day to immerse yourself in the shamanic experience.

Starlight reverberates throughout the earthly realms and stabilises as the Dream Seeds of the Earth, which contain all future potentials, including the futuristic communities and technologies of a post-material civilisation, not limited by terrestrial consciousness.

** If you want to follow the Mayan Sacred Calendar with more connection, I would suggest you keep a journal and draw the glyphs for each day to bring you into energetic resonance with the 260-day pulse.

(Note from Carey: You can now find Laurence’s own artwork of the modern stylised version of the 20 Daykeeper glyphs on our ‘Your Mayan Daykeeper’ page on this blog (scroll down that page). I have also added a list of the 13 Day Numbers, or Tones, with their key concepts.)

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 7 Jaguar:]
The Full Immersion
The plant kingdom naturally contains psychoactive ingredients. The experienced shaman not only ‘goes on a trip’, but enters into a relationship with the intelligence of the plant. 

The full psychotropic experience proves that there is a dimension of nature hidden from the mind, a dimension which is teeming with aliveness and character. The extraordinary contrast between being drunk or on recreational drugs and the full psychotropic experience is so profound as to be indescribable.

The image above is the front cover
of a book Laurence
wholeheartedly recommended

The connection and confirmation this brings is that we do indeed live in a universe that is vitally alive and animated. This is not merely an idea – this is the Shamanic Knowledge.

Psychotropics should definitely be respected, but at the same time they reveal that life inherently has a sense of humour about anything we call reality.

Day 7 has a magical resonant quality, as it is in tune with the essence of things. Today, being 7 Jaguar, you can tune into the shamanic experience whilst living an urban existence.

So, while there is no need to fully immerse yourself in the shamanic psychotropic experience, it is worth remembering – and tuning into – the shamanic message gifted to us by the plant kingdom.

6 Reed (Skywalker)

[Tuesday 20 August 2019]

A day where the energy moves organically from one thing to another. You may feel like you are skimming from person to person, and/or event to event, detached but conscious with an overlighting intelligence.

Hong Kong Cityscape 1,
by Laurence James Lucas

Day 6 in every timewave is both structured and moving. It exhibits the quality of rhythm, so potentially you can move from one thing to another with a sense of satisfaction, shaping and forming your ideas and your different endeavours.

Reed or Skywalker is the overlight that shines down into the Earth, like a laser beam – the guidance, the teaching, the informational structure.

Earth Stepping Stones,

Our challenge is to receive this guidance, without rigidly concluding anything. It is very easy to over-interpret what life is teaching us and to assume a finality.

‘I am always like this, I always do that, I always fail, I never get this, She always does that, He is always...’ etc.

Maintain a detachment from your conclusions and evaluations. They may be true for now, but not for all time. Listen to the teaching without immortalising it.

In a natural and easy way, ideas or insights emerge today that create a basis for being in the rhythm of life’s abundance.

5 Good Road (Human, Grass, Long Good Road)

[Monday 19 August 2019]

Today, enjoy the fullness of life through emptying your mind to become the cup, the vessel and the conduit for communal energy.

Day 4 of every timewave creates a four-cornered foundation, while Day 5 brings an opening in the centre of that square. Specifically, yesterday (4 Monkey) we recognised the creative spirits who live parallel to our world; today, Day 5 of the Rabbit Timewave, we come back inside ourselves to the heart and to the anticipation we feel as we walk upon the Long Good Road of Life.

Heart by Carey

The recognition that life is an adventure is the key in our hearts to abundance. The message is to enjoy the mystery of the journey, rather than fixating the mind upon the arrival.

On the Long Good Road of Life, you will meet many people and, if you meet them from your heart, they will be the deliverers of abundance on every level.

5 Good Road in the Rabbit Timewave says to me: ‘Life offers us many choices. Stay with the adventure of it, no matter what path you take.’

This day requires us to find the calling within our hearts and to feel the sense of anticipation that resides within us.

4 Monkey

[Sunday 18 August 2019]

What is the foundation for a life that is radiant and which shines with the magical light of a free spirit?

A recognition that life is creative and playful, but is also full of challenging moments and the odd comic trickster. The comedic elemental will yield to you, if you have the courage to live your life without the trap-pings of social conditioning.

Day 4 of each timewave tells us about the underlying principle, the foundation of truth, for the whole timewave. Today, the Rabbit Timewave, which is the multiplication of all things, is underpinned by the creativity, humour and trickster spirit of Monkey.

Creativity springs from the elemental kingdom, a parallel kingdom to humanity. These elemental beings are right little monkeys, for they create just for the sake of creation. The elementals are really automatons – they just say ‘Yes!’.

So be spontaneous today. Respond to the inherent creativity of today with a sense of humour and the day will bring pleasant surprises.

Spirit of the Night, by
John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893)

Dare, be courageous and life will respond. Work is play, play is work; secure yourself by recognising you are co-creating your life with your energy and consciousness.

You are not victim of the world, for the creative spirits that are inherent within the totality of the environment are simply reflecting your consciousness back to you. Step into the space of knowing that you are creating your life.

A good day for connecting to the muses, the devas and the elementals.

3 Dog

[Saturday 17 August 2019]

The emotional body is energised today. And doesn’t it feel good?

Today is a day for dynamic exchange and social activity. A day of energising, emotive communication. This is a great day to be with people and to enjoy their company, for it is through others that we feel the real abundance of life.

Emotional body

And/or: A day of feeling nurtured by the abundance of life all around you and the opportunities in front of you.

And/or: A day of new emotional energy as you refresh your feeling for life or feel inspired, yet somewhat unsettled.

Receive and accept the energy; recognise that today is invigorating a part of your life.

2 Water (Moon)

[Friday 16 August 2019]

A day of two atmospheres, two feelings and the contrast of two environments and how they complement, conflict or converge with each other.

Day 2 of each timewave reveals the inherent duality and challenge within the whole timewave. With Rabbit Timewave, we ask ‘Where is the substance behind the abundance?’

The answer is within the soul, within relationship.

German photographer Markus Reugels
created these amazing photographs of miniature
planets in water droplets. Image from here

2 Water (also called Moon) asks us to feel into the multitude of objects, people, ideas and energies and to recognise their energetic signatures:
  • Is each emergence in resonance with our soul state?
  • Is it abundant, or is it pulling us in the wrong direction?
  • Are we dissolving our soul in the welter of abundance, or are we expanding our field of consciousness?

Image from NASA, from here

We live with the duality of our desires and the duality within all action, intent and thought. There is an abundance of things in this beautiful world to entertain us, to study, to act upon or to long for, but they do come with the inevitable cost of an energetic clash created within us.

We could call this karma, the shadow of all agency, or more accurately, our unconsciousness of the totality of any action.

There is no escaping it, unless you choose the transcendental path: excitement breeds anxiety; bliss breeds deflation and inertia; and even joy can breed depression, if we chase it.

Today is a good day to clear your energy field, to burn incense, to ask for forgiveness from life, to forgive life and to give thanks for your life as it is.

Accept the duality of agency and release yourself from struggle today.

1 Rabbit (Star)

[Thursday 15 August 2019. Full Moon at exactly 12:29 UTC (1.29pm BST); 20:29 Hong Kong time]

Your World Shines
The last timewave ended yesterday with a vision, or an opening of the energy field to a larger sense of reality. Day 13 of each timewave always opens up into the next timewave.

Composite created by Carey

Today, 1 Rabbit, sees the start of a new mini-cycle – 13 days of abundance; 13 days that are fertile, creative, playful and beautiful. The Rabbit Timewave (also known as Star, or Lamat to the Maya) is about the multiplication in all directions of all things.

This new timewave brings light and vitality; it is fun, it can be superficial and even slightly silly, and of course it can be overwhelming – but it radiates a joyful luminescence that originates within your Cosmic Heart.

Fractal Rabbit,
by rydena on Deviantart

Stay conscious within the radiant explosion. Enjoy it, but do not completely acquiesce, agree or invest all of your energy in everything that comes along.

Remember: Anything can be alluring, but do not be seduced by everything that tempts you. Do not spend all of your energy reserves.

Instead, enjoy the luminosity and step into the abundance and vitality.

[Extra message from Laurence for contemplation on 1 Rabbit:]
How does life expand? How does light radiate? How is the cosmos expanding?

Radially, holographically, fractally – with implosions and new radial emanations embedded within a larger expansion.

To connect to the radiance and beauty that Rabbit evokes, we have to look beyond the ‘false light’.

The false light is very strong in the world now; it is the pretension of light that is created by the dark agents who seek to control the Earth. These are interdimensional beings who work through their terrestrial agents, and who will be selling their agenda hard, wrapped in soft reassuring words.

The false light is most apparent within the naïve elements of celebrity; the hidden elements of religion, finance and politics; and the saccharine changelings who seek to cajole the spiritually minded into inertia.

Down the Rabbit Hole, by Timothy Vincent on Deviantart

Now, more than ever, it is important to look beyond the glossy image.

The 2012 effect* – the evolutionary creative challenge of our times – is well and truly under way. A very wide spectrum of potentiality currently exits in the flux state of our world and we are being asked to be far more conscious of a far larger diversity of frequencies than ever before.

So, look to connect to the radiance from natural environments in order to connect to the positive elements of Rabbit.

13 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

[Wednesday 14 August 2019]

A day where you feel some elation. Feel the bliss of releasing an enduring block and, in so doing, re-grasp something from your past that you reluctantly thought you had to surrender forever.

Shamanic Substance,
by Laurence James Lucas

Or: Release your grasp and be ready to hold something far bigger, perhaps a larger concept of life or understanding. But do not grasp it tightly; be silent with it and receive it.

The last day of the Eagle Timewave gives us the opportunity to glimpse a much larger vision of our life – if we can let go of at least some of our old imaginings, mental constructs and subconscious projections about our future.

Gift of the Sun, by Vladimir Kush
Image found on Pinterest,
but here is the website of this amazing artist

Let go of some old security to welcome more plenitude into your life, the plenitude that comes from grace and openness. Let go, give it up, release old imaginings and visions, relax the mind and open up wide.

Release, let go and then discern where it is you re-grasp and regain control.

The timewave disperses and integrates with the cosmic background.

Image from here

[Extra message and link from Laurence to contemplate on 13 Deer:]
My Plnti website (takes three minutes to view!), which I put up as a personal affirmation and reminder to myself about the plenitude that comes from grace and openness, seems appropriate to this day and may evoke something for you.

12 Skull

[Tuesday 13 August 2019]

Life begins as undifferentiated wholeness. Then, through contrast, life becomes richer and more conscious of itself.

The Egg, by LjL

Endings and beginnings, separations, barriers, boundaries, restrictions, structures, renewals, discovery – all of these principal experiences bring lucidity.

Today is a great day for structure, as this day can give you the cold-bone reasoning and clear understandings that the mind is comfortable with.

Strange Skull:
image found on Pinterest,
from a museum in Brazil

The potential of this day is that you can actually feel a sense of regeneration. Skull is death and rebirth and, when combined with the mental clarity of 12, it allows for a consciously chosen change.

A good day to appreciate limitations within your life and how these limitations bring you more consciousness. By recognising the value of a limitation, by feeling the profound validity of a restriction, you open the door to a transformation in an area of your life you have been experiencing as frustrating or blocked.

Consciously work with limitation today in order to be free.

The vision is implemented and organised and becomes real.

11 Serpent

[Monday 12 August 2019]

Today, the energy focus is on survival, both physical and financial. However, do not react from a place of fear – go deeper.

Tune into the life force of your body today.

Sperm, by LjL

Your cellular impulses are adjusted by whatever direction is taken by your attention and your imagination. This adaptation of your vision is an instinctive process.

Do not underestimate the power of your life force – the deepest level of desire you have.

Image found on Google

The door into this base energy opens for you today. The Serpent life force has an instinctive intelligence that can lead you in the best direction for your survival and flourishment.

Adjustment, adaptability, improvement and some gentle releasing as you allow your higher intelligence to direct your energy towards the actions you need to take.

[On 20 January 2016, Laurence added this bonus message and link for us to contemplate on 11 Serpent, still very relevant today:]
'I was sent this article (below) this morning and it feels very pertinent to the times we are in, as well as to 11 Serpent.

How to declutter your life by not giving a fuck

"… we’ve added a lot more mental clutter, a lot more obligation and therefore a lot more mental anxiety and a lot more guilt and those are the things I’m trying to pare down in my life by not overcommitting [to things that] aren't in the service of making me happy…"

The anti-intellectualism we are experiencing is due to the intense emotional friction and the saying ‘I don’t give a fuck’ seems to be very popular...

The adjustments we are having to make in our lives now involve knowing what to let go of and when. Today, 11 Serpent, is an opportunity to feel into the important things in your life by seeing where your energy is being sapped unnecessarily.

Of course, that is not the end of the process. Taken to the nth degree, ‘not giving a fuck’ leads to nihilism, for we have to find what we truly care about, which starts with those we love and the world we live in.

Cynicism towards much of the mainstream seems to be a healthy emotion in this epoch, and decluttering our mind of outdated conditioning regarding the present social system is an important part of being the change we wish to see.

What about the pursuit of happiness? This seems to be a flawed idea, for this period at least. A ‘pursuit’ of happiness will push it away – pursuing happiness through money, status, unending pleasure, or even perpetual bliss and inspiration is not really appropriate to the present condition.

As ever, looking to live with a sense of purpose, without too much fanfare, would appear to be our best option.

First thing’s first: declutter.'

10 Lizard (Seed)

[Sunday 11 August 2019]

Key concepts for today: Vision experienced, immanence, involvement in the dream, experiential state of consciousness, stepping into awareness.

Framing the Intent, by LjL

Today – being Day 10 in the Eagle Timewave, and ruled by Lizard (Seed) – the soft focus of seeing existence with the clear, unsentimental vision of Eagle produces the manifestation of a clear, tangible intention, or a visceral psychic connection to the intelligence of life.

A good day to see the present condition and symbolic picture of your life template. A good day to feel a sense of, or envisage the intent for, your purpose and being.

'Evidence of the Multiverse:
"a torus geometry of the universe in which it is rotating
and has directional toroidal flow..."'
Image credit: the Resonance Science Foundation

Everything has a template. Every form, be it organic or non-organic, every life has a template. However, I suggest that templates are not fixed as absolutes; rather, they are enduring, essential abstract thought forms evoked from the monadic plane of existence during the involution of consciousness, which are then shaped by the systemic forces of the material realm.

Why are they not fixed? Because we live in a feedback universe of toroidal form.

Thus your actions and being in every moment are enfolded back into your self, the self that is beyond this life. The template adapts and adjusts, albeit slowly. The template grows and adjusts as we feed back to it from our life experience.

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

[Saturday 10 August 2019]

A profound confrontation with the mystery and the existential crisis of the human soul.

A good day to find inner security.

Laurence delves deeper into the Mystery

Day 9 of each timewave is always one where we wake up beyond the 13-day cycle we are in, to gain a connection to the future and to the past. The larger cycles of our life come into our awareness.

What has completed or is completing?

Image found on Google

Foredawn, also known as Dark House, is the void before dawn, the moment of anticipation that is devoid of anything the mind can grasp, but which is fecund with what the soul can sense.

Be with the mystery. Become conscious of the fecund space of today. Create some time for daydreaming. Enjoy and feel at home in the emptiness that is fertile.

Are you feeling lost? Then go deeper into the mystery, for the soul is not lost but is at home in the mystery.
