Solid truth from sobriety. Where appropriate, say nothing, for silence will speak loudly.
When it is right to communicate today, be in your truth without apology, but say it calmly and with the humility you naturally find within yourself.
Your truth is your truth. There is a diverse range of basic philosophical positions but, even within each mindset, we find that everyone has their own slightly different version of the truth of reality and the experience of life.
Today, recognize what is true for you is true for you, without doubting yourself. It might not be THE TRUTH, but is your perspective right now.
Find your centre and assume the confidence within your own gnosis. If it works for you, then it works.
Note from Carey: Laurence’s ground-breaking developmental model, which he called the Enchantments of Life, maps the evolution of human consciousness. This was his truth and it was his life’s mission to share this profound understanding with others.
The Enchantments model informed the rest of Laurence’s work. For example, his own understanding of the texture and energy of each of the 260 days of the Mayan Sacred Calendar year was underpinned not just by his 30-year study and daily experiential investigation of this calendrical system, but also by his own immersion in the higher levels of consciousness (‘higher’ purely in evolutionary terms – he was never ‘hierarchical’, in the sense that he recognized every Enchantment level is necessary and inevitable for the process of evolving consciousness. Where people are is where people are).
The Enchantments Principle and Laurence’s map have helped many people in many different ways – some say they became less judgemental of others, some say they became more empowered in their own truth and their own sovereignty (another of Laurence’s pivotal quests), yet more say that the Enchantments map helped to release them from fear and accorded them a sense of freedom and deep purpose.
Here are two of Laurence’s highly creative and illuminating flip-chart images, used in one or more of our workshops over the years.
The first, above, illustrates Laurence’s own truth. Laurence was always solid with his own truth; he never doubted himself. However, he was one of the most genuinely humble, wise and loving people I have ever had the privilege to spend time with (far, far too little time), and he never used his truth to stomp on anyone else, believing fully in every person’s right to their own truth. He would be silent when appropriate; he would explain his own position – calmly, clearly and with genuine delight – when asked.
The second, below, is a brief snapshot of the Levels of Truth, as understood through the Enchantments map.

Get ready, get steady... wait...
Receive some inspiration today. This could include an understanding or an insight. New specifics come to light in your awareness.
A great day to have a balanced view of the world as you fly high above it, yet look down with a readiness to engage.
Eagles have the ability to focus on the smallest details on the ground; they are comfortable and competent with the earthly realm.
A good day to enjoy the energy of anticipation. Stay ready for insights.
Day 3 of every timewave can be frustrating, nervous, edgy and unsatisfying as movement begins – it’s like revving up the engines. Allow yourself to trust that the feeling you have is valid. If you feel restless, that is okay – accept it and carry on.
You are getting ready to perceive, getting ready to understand or getting ready to step into more authorship.

Today is about the challenge of stealth. Jaguar must use the power of stealth-magic wisely, whilst knowing that secrecy eventually turns to decay.
The duality of the Reed (Skywalker) Timewave is that although we can enjoy the view from above, we must simultaneously be connected through the feelings to the ground below. To this end, we call upon the shamanic cat instincts to observe and respond to the energy behind things. Feel and respond; listen with X-ray smell. Be alert to the unusual, to the discordant and to any strange feelings.
|Image from Google|
Today affords you the opportunity to become aware of how you can transform negative or blocked energies.
As we proceed through this 13-day timewave and the connection to our authority, we need to learn protection. Call upon the magnificence of the big cats or other jungle animals you feel an affinity with to teach you how to protect your sovereignty in the world.
Today, connect to the fierceness of the soul, the fierce courage that recognizes truth, love and divinity are your guiding lights and your legitimate experience.

A new timewave starts today. The energy of the Reed or Skywalker Timewave (Ben) is like a shaft of light, a strong intention that sends a laser beam of consciousness up to the heavens.
1 Reed is a strong masculine essence, not exactly flexible.
A day and timewave of observation, to create a template and map that connects Heaven and Earth.

Tune in and take the opportunity to detach; look to the Sky and see things clearly. Great for work and creativity that involves laying out plans or big ideas.
Also, the perfect time to receive spiritual guidance from your other-world guides, or perhaps transcendental-yet-embodied spiritual teachers.
Reed rules the templates, the contexts or the ‘givens’, as well as the issue of authority.
The challenge and higher potential of Reed is to connect the beam of Light of Consciousness down into the ancestral heritage. For ancient indigenous people, the challenge was the opposite – to connect their ancestral roots up to the stars whilst developing the metaphysical or detached mind.

Time to Wake Up
We are always being enchanted by something; our experience is one of being enchanted. There are an almost infinite number of contexts, or deep structures of reality, that we are subject to. Each Enchantment has an authorship, a creative intelligence, that has brought it into being and which is then sustained and developed with the cooperation and agreement of the many, mostly inadvertently.
Now more than ever we are to wake up to the contextual aspects of our society; to wake up to that which we assume, that which we inadvertently agree to.
It is time to transcend consensual society; quite simply, we need to question our present human reality. The enormous awakening of consciousness within the domain of Earth means that many of us are recognizing the everyday experience of normal living is incredibly limited, compared to the extraordinary scope of real potentiality and the mind-boggling scale and diversity of what actually exists here on Earth.
Reality is up for negotiation. You are taking part in this process, consciously or unconsciously, to a lesser or greater degree.
In this timewave, step into your authorship and your authority, and question the limiting strictures of our mainstream world, because they are no longer appropriate.
The first step is to get off the world. Go to your shamanic Upper World Sanctuary and, on the way, cut through the illusions of limitation being thrown at you. The ghouls are scary, but their power is temporary – shake it off and go to your Higher Self.

Feel the totality of your light emissions and how they attract people into your life. Open up your very being to allow in new possibilities. Within every situation, within every moment, is the potential for total freedom.
Enjoy the radiating potentials that life offers you, based on all the different desires you hold. Today, the energy spirals out onto another level.
Day 13 of every timewave releases and harvests the energy of the whole timewave. 13 is the number of the Moon; there are 13 Moon Cycles in just over one year. It’s just not that neat a number, is it? The linear mind can’t really control 13… thank the Goddess! 13 is also the number of free energy; 13 is a Fibonacci number – and the Fibonacci spiral connects the geometries and makes them spin, grow and morph onwards and upwards.
|Created by Carey|
This is most evident through all the people you have encountered over the last 13 days and the potential paths that open up through relating to each of them – thus reinforcing the associated energy.
Every thread of light that emanates from you draws in different events and people. Every individual is a synchronous web of unique connections.
Each person you encounter offers you a new doorway to reality, but do you see where each path can lead?
If so, you can choose to let go of some of those threads and release the energy of that which does not feel as if it would be fulfilling. This means releasing the desires and whimsical wants that lead you down limiting paths.
Liberate yourself by liberating some of the energy you expend in wanting that which is inappropriate to your best interests.

Today is Eb, Good Road, Human or Grass, the road of life’s adventure. The Good Road of Life is also the Milky Way, the Galactic Spiral and the Path of the Soul.
Open your mind a full 360 degrees and be the empty conduit for the possibilities of the next timewave.
Light is a radiant energy, just like full consciousness. Galactic Time is also radiant. The Cosmos is all around, in all directions – and the Cosmos is not just space, but time–space. That’s right, the true nature of time is that it radiates out in all directions. This the science of the mystery.

According to Ian Xel Lungold, the Mayan Calendar Keeper now walking on the other side,
Galactic Butterfly is the name used by the indigenous people for this symbol.
It is ‘said to represent all of the consciousness that has ever existed in this galaxy. This is all of our physical ancestors both human, animal, reptile, fish, shell fish, plants as well as the consciousness which organized all of the raw material from a whirling disk into stars then planets and solar systems.’
[Quote from Ian Xel Lungold from here. It is well worth reading the rest of it!]
José Argüelles popularised this Toltec/Zapatec/Aztec symbol under the name Hunab Ku.

Is he working? Playing? Having fun? Or finding a highly creative solution to something?
Light creates all and today you can understand that light creates shadow – even darkness comes from light.
Play-work-vocation-fun-drama all seem so interlinked on 12 Monkey.
Novelty enlightens you today, so follow your curiosity and see what you can craft from what you find.
Sometimes you have to work hard to have fun. For some of us, fun comes from ‘serious’ issues – fun arises spontaneously – while some things that the world says are fun can feel like hard work.

In the Flower/Sun/Lord Timewave, Day 12 is Monkey, giving us the understanding that the creative power of light is inherently filled with novel, fun, tricky and spontaneous energy.
The light that radiates from the Sun is not merely inert photons – it is real energy, energy that is vastly intelligent and a little wild. It is wild in as much as it has a potent volatile creativity, since it interacts with living organisms (be those planets or individual humans) and it responds to the inbuilt directives of that organism.
These directives are the totality of the cacophony of desires, needs and impulses springing from the multiple levels of the bio-psychic organism.
Today is a good day to come up with highly creative solutions to major challenges.

Let Someone In
What was solidifying yesterday becomes more transparent today. So, for example, if you were feeling stodgy and stuck within yourself yesterday, today a door opens to lead you into another emotional space that is more relational and more resonant with those around you.
Allow someone into your emotional space.
Alternatively and/or simultaneously, your relationship patterns with friends, lover or family turn inside out and offer you another perspective, not only on your relationships but on the whole sphere of community, connection and relating.
The sovereignty of self grows today through the adaptive ability of the basic emotions and common needs we all have for the company of others. A good day to modify your needs or feelings.
Day 11 of each timewave always feels like doors are opening after the solidity of Day 10.

[Extra message from Laurence, posted on 11 Dog of 25 March 2016:]
Today I was blown away by a photograph (below) and some kind words that appeared on my facebook wall.
Artist Kit Yeung and her partner Garrick Cheng, who is a Holospheric Astrologer, are good friends and a very talented couple.
Please forgive me but I want to post what Kit said...
‘He always sees from a different perspective which I never thought of. He brought me to a different world where I discovered my inner substance and true potential. He enjoys being in nature and connects deeply to it. His mind is free, like birds flying in the limitless sky. The most important thing is … he teaches me to “BE ME”.’

A day when your recent feelings solidify into a cohesive unified whole. Feel the complex array of feelings and recognize that through the agency of feeling, your spirit becomes real.
Day 10 of every timewave is the day when that timewave manifests into form. It is the day when the consciousness of the timewave – its particular Earth–Galactic signature – comes into solidity. The Flower (Sun, Lord) Timewave, which is the energy of spiritual light and sovereignty, manifests today as the soul.
Feel the soul as a tangible form today.
The manifestation of the timewave also means that the implicit challenge of the timewave is felt. The challenge and the manifest realization of Flower – the divine sovereign self – is in the subtle feeling body.
You do not get the fully reasoned understanding today, as that integrated understanding is always reserved for Day 12; however, you do have the opportunity to acknowledge the manifestation. In the case of the Flower Timewave, the way the subtle pranic light moves into density is the formation of our sophisticated, extraordinary and wide-spectrum feeling nature.
If you feel heavy today, process and lighten the emotional body with physical activity outdoors in nature. Set your intent to clear and cleanse; find the gratitude after owning the dark emotions.
|'I Am Love', painting by Robby Donaghey, from Google images|
‘The ability to hold Light is directly proportional to the courage to see darkness. Choosing to see just one creates distortions and illusions. It amazes me that something so simple and common sense can be so difficult to even discuss with “spiritual” people who insist on remaining “positive”. Actually, this avoidance is based on unacknowledged fear that their inner light might be somewhat “dispersed” by seeing darkness and therefore not giving the light much credit at all.
‘I think there’s also fear that they might somehow become “tainted” or the darkness might “manifest” in some form in their lives. But the opposite is true; it is the fear, especially unacknowledged, that has much more chance to manifest than darkness exposed to daylight and investigation. Just like we must be fearless about our own inner shadow, we must also be fearless about seeing this huge shadow of humanity. Or we will have the power to transform precisely nothing, within or without.’

A day of awakening to your divine cosmic power. However, this can be accompanied by, ‘Yes, but how on earth can I express my true self?’
Remember the part of you that comes from the stars and is connected through omni-directions to nature and to other realms of existence. Part of your essence exists as a non-local consciousness, not limited by this time frame.
Aspects of your divinity are converging from the future and from multiple timelines into your field of consciousness.

Consciousness and 9 Rabbit
Your life today is a result of past intentions. If you can accommodate the fact of multiple pasts, you are empowering yourself to be truly creative and can then draw upon a far greater potential. Although this sounds incredibly abstract, allow your imagination to go there.
The rational mind reduces things, which is useful for everyday life, and the suggestion I am making sounds absurd to the rational mind. However, today is a good day to take the position of gnosis – that you are in essence an immortal soul and therefore are not merely contained in linear time. You cannot be reduced to a rational explanation.

On a higher level of reality or consciousness (than the human species presently and commonly enjoys) is a multiverse of radiant time. I am convinced of that reality and believe myself to have had a convergence of this sort in 1994, when an aspect of myself walked into my being in this realm. I have met many people who have had similar and far more profound experiences, including the full walk-in from another star system.
Extraterrestrials from other star systems do visit us from light years away, unbelievable distances, because they access superluminal consciousness and technology. In other words, it’s not so much space travel as time travel, which is not just a technology, but a state of consciousness. Linear time is derivative of or symbiotic with linear mind, whereas our greater consciousness is multidimensional.
Today, 9 Rabbit or Star, is a day of sublime creativity, actualized by assuming you have previously intended all that is in your life to be here and that you can pull in other realities.
How do we express it? How do we cope with the enormity of our true self?
Today we can connect to the eternal now and engage with the emerging unfolding reality that we are co-creating.

Holding on with just the right tension, being responsive to the alchemical mix of your life. Commit to a dynamic balance, the non-static union of opposites. Transcend the political correctness of gender politics to find true equality. Embody the male and female.
Commit and hold onto reality – but if your reality is too small, then let go and grasp a bigger one.
There is plenty of reality pie to go around, you know... recal-liberate your energy field.
Life is an adventure. It is easy to forget that if you listen to Channel Normal.
Is Life too tight? Well, mash it up and remix your energies.
Surf the channels of your energy field: Sex, food, music, silence, art, shamanics, yoga...
Get soul funking.

Just be flexible and do not believe you are forever that which you find yourself to be at any one point in time.
Commit to navigation – life is forever changing and your challenge is to flow with strength and grace.

Guangzhou, March 2016
A good day for definitive thought. Be resonant with your clarity. This day can be easy if you trust your authority.
All Skull days bring the theme of death and rebirth, as well as cutting out unnecessary sentiment.
Today is a rare day of resonance with the precise borders and definitions of all things – enjoy this day of clarity.
Take the plunge into your subconscious without fear; see the truth of your own feelings without the emotion of doubt.

Go with the body instincts. Listen to that first impulse; act upon it and the day will flow.
Remember: Serpent days are all connected to survival and power themes. Be responsive to your power. Your kundalini life force, not money, is the foundation of your true power in this life.
A day of rhythm, gradually changing direction under the guidance of the body wisdom.
A day of vitality.

A good day to feel connected to an intelligence within you that transcends the boundaries of your separate self.
There is a coherent intention for your life encoded into every photon you absorb.
The Cosmos is holographic and the Divine Intelligence is fractally encoded into every particle and most accessible through every photon.
Today, receive the Light. Gather energy, hold energy and know energy is intelligent; light creates everything.
|Soak up the Sun. Image from Google.|
Your life has a basic plan and that plan is part of a basic pattern for evolutionary unfoldment.
To be actively co-creating our reality, we need intent. Intent is far more than a decision formed in the mind – it is decision that is aligned with our deeper feelings and soul purpose.
It is particularly challenging at the moment to reach this alignment because there is a storm on the astral planes – the emotional realm of Earth – due to the cosmic influx. The imperative for our species to survive and evolve is triggering the extreme polarities of the collective emotional realms.
So, if you feel overwhelmed today by a circle of thoughts and circumstances, remind yourself that there is a cohesive intention for your life.
Today is a good opportunity to find some alignment and to summon up intent.

Create a space for light; locate some inner darkness and sit with it.
The foundation for one’s enlightenment is the allowance of the vacuum that you can maintain. Set the parameters of the void within you, a void of expectancy that you yourself deliberately hold.
|Created by Carey|
Make the space for space; make the time for timelessness. Use your will to step outside your activities.
This could also mean a change of action, if there is something you have been putting off doing.
Have you been looking after your home and/or your soul? If not, bring your consciousness home – bring your consciousness into your emotional sanctuary. Feel the sense of home within yourself. Be at home in your soul.
Secure your space in whatever way it needs securing.
Abundance can only come in when you make space for it.

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.

|Two versions of our Energy Temple graphic, |
created for use in some of our handouts for workshops and shamanic rituals
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, that is, your choices on every level of your psyche.
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.
So, when we look at our life in all of its fullness, we can appreciate the whole 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.
Today highlights the challenge of our need for security and familiarity, versus our need for novelty; the 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.
