4 Flower (Sun, Lord)

Pacal Troll, presiding over our Medicine Wheel, 
on the roof terrace of our Enchantments Centre, on Lamma Island.

Today is the day that teaches us to be in our sovereign psychic space, protected by the confidence that comes from our divine selves.

A day of self-establishment.

You are what you are. No apology needed.

Today – 4 Ahau (Flower, Sun or Lord) – is a day which tells us that change requires a foundation of confidence, based on recognizing that you are a divine being of light.

Every person is divine and every person, if conscious of that, should rightly be confident and glowing.

There can be a fine line between confidence and arrogance or ego inflation, but today err on the side of confidence.

Your sovereign power is found when you celebrate life. Pay homage to all that is beautiful and beatific; by so doing, you are beauty and you are divine.

Today, claim your sovereign spiritual power for yourself. We need you to do this now, more than ever.



Laurence paying homage to all that is beautiful and beatific.
Huge thanks to André Eichman for the wonderful photograph.

[More from Laurence to contemplate on 4 Flower:]
Tune into the fact that this is the same day in the Mayan Sacred Calendar as it was on 21 December 2012,* so that we can connect to another octave of the 2012 influx.

As in Western astrology, the Mayan astrology we use here is a fractal system, which means that today, 4 Flower, is in resonance with the Maya end date of 20:12, which signified the end of a chapter in the evolution of the human species, and the beginning of a fundamental transformation.

Today, you have the opportunity today to glean personal and direct inspiration about the nature of change and how you can best navigate it in this transformational era.

Setting the Parameters of Change
A day where you can potentially feel the different boundaries in your energy field – the boundaries and space you now exist within, as well as the extended boundaries of your realizable potentiality.

On 4 Flower of 15 February 2010, I experienced this in the hills of Lamma, looking out over the sea, as I was suddenly aware of my personal space, the living space around me and the living space I walk around in.

Today, be aware of who you are, without sentiment, and then feel into the potential energy that lies just beyond your present state.


 You are changing and evolving. Set the scene for your unfoldment as you will step into a larger space and a larger expression, perception and experience of life.

The expansion of your reality will involve an expansion of membership and an identification with yourself as being part of or belonging to more of the human species. Growth creates a greater affinity with more of life.





Today, become conscious of your energy spaces and the different scales of environment within which you have your being.

 


 
[* Note from Carey: In calendrical terms, 21 December 2012 was the end of the then-current ‘Great Cycle’ of the Mayan Long Count Calendar, which comprises 13 periods of time, each called a baktun, covering a total period of approximately 5,125 years in the Gregorian calendar.]

[A personal message from Laurence, posted on 21 December 2012:]
My day started many hours ago with a greeting to the dawn. I was met with a spectacular display as four kites, our local birds of prey, rolled and clustered around each other in the sky, directly in the east, four hundred yards in front of me.

Then one flew back to me and, facing east with me, hovered about 12 feet in the air and 20 feet away from my right shoulder. Together we greeted the dawn of a new day.

The Quickening
The restless spirit is seeking novelty and freedom, spontaneity and vigour. Your hunger is good; the vibration of change is shaking the air.

Movement and Flexibility
Feel the storm out there, respect its power. The electrical charge of the psychic environment seeks a pathway into your life. Observe the novelty of the day.

Be with the energizing vibration.

[Extra message to contemplate today, on 3 Storm:]
In all timewaves, Day 3 allows us to move out of the block we might have felt on Day 2.

If you had a day of constant self-reflection without resolution yesterday (even leading to inertia), you might well find that the 2 Obsidian tension actually created an energy that transforms today, 3 Storm, into a degree of creative resolution through vitality.

This 260-day cycle of the Mayan Sacred Calendar (known as the Tzolkin) is an enormous asset to creativity and understanding as it allows you to plug into the emerging energy, the gestating energy of potentiality, and all that is seeking expression.

It doesn’t matter if you have only just discovered the 260-day cycle. It will take a few cycles to fully tune in, but you will feel it after only about two cycles – and then you have rare access to the soul realm.

The key to learning any subject is to connect to nature and to the cycles of reality, to observe life and – yes, indeed – to feed the mind with information, but then to hand it over to your soul. Give it to the unconscious.

As we are witnessing, the small context box of material science and mainstream conservatism has reached the ends of its usefulness. The oxymoron of modern pragmatism is that it is totally impractical for the continuing progression of human life.

The rational mind is just a tool, to be used but not revered. It is the intuitive, creative, heartfelt approach that needs to dominate the rational mind.

Follow the energy and texture of the Mayan Sacred Calendar days. So simple, yet so overlooked. It will reveal its richness to you, and it will allow you access to the creative realm of the soul.

2 Obsidian (Obsidian Mirror, Flint)

 Thoth Temple of Light.
Image originally from Google, manipulated by LjL.

A good symbol for contemplation today is two mirrors facing each other.

Inevitability, as compared to flexibility.

Today some things are inevitable, but within that framework there is room for flexibility. Do not get too rigid. Stay open to responding to the finest details with full consciousness.

Today is a day where you can potentially operate with great clarity by separating your truth from that which is not relevant to you, by separating clear mind from distorting emotions, and by separating essential feeling from confused thoughts.

 

Image created by LjL
The Challenge of the Day: The duality of transformation and evolution; the shadow and the shadow of the shadow; and the reflection of the reflection of the reflection into eternity.

The challenge today is to open the heart to embrace the paradoxes and polarities; to sit with them and accept them, but not to make decisions about one’s whole life.

The limitations of the linear mind can be seen today. The linear mind always says ‘Yes, but...’ to everything. There is always a ‘Yes, but...’ with the linear mind.

Today is a great day for clear action and immediate decisions, as long as you just deal with each thing in its own right, as it appears, in the context of the moment.

Create compartments for your life today.

Recalibration
A new timewave begins today; thirteen days of Earthmover (Caban), the synchronic recalibration. Feel the force and move with it!

Follow the synchronicity trail to find your new evolutionary pathway in the next 13 days.

The timewave theme seeded today is one of evolution; ground-shaking change that can synchronize us with a new level.

It does require some adjustment and integration to be in synch with the new level of reality, but change is inevitable.

To some degree, you have the opportunity to move your life on in an integrated manner during this timewave. A little earthquake of disruption is part of that higher integration, so bear that in mind.

Shake up, throw away and dispel anything blocking forward momentum.

Direct-ion
Connect to the dynamic force of change. Listen to it, feel it and be strong, so that you can go with it in all confidence. A little internal superhero attitude would not hurt!

[On 1 Earthmover of 6 Feb 2015, Laurence shared a short message and a link:]

I have written a short evaluation of the opportunity/challenge and imperative for us at this time. This short article, posted on Mystic Cyber Crow, highlights how we are at a crossroads for our species and is called: The Alchemical Transformation of the Human Experience (click to read)

 

[On 1 Earthmover of 18 December 2012, Laurence added a poem by A. W. E. O’Shaughnessy; first published in 1873. This has great resonance with his own work:]


Ode
We are the music-makers.
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world forever, it seems.

With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world’s great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire’s glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song’s measure
Can trample a kingdom down.
We in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o’erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world’s worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.

A. W. E. O’Shaughnessy



[Note from Carey: This is the 13-day timewave that took us through the Mayan Long Count Calendar ‘end date’ of 21 December 2012, which was on 4 Flower (also called Sun or Lord; Ahau to the Maya).

As Laurence has previously stated, ‘this is the 13-day cycle of the 2012 era…. The Earthmover Timewave allows you to tune into the 2012 message for yourself, to find the resonance in your own life… and to tune into the evolutionary changes seeking emergence during the 2012 era (ed: 1980–2016, and for some decades beyond, in terms of fundamental transformation of the species’ consciousness).]

13 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Whatever the situation today, choose Life.

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

12 Eagle

Today is a good day for perspective.

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

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

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

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

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

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

11 Jaguar

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


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

Stalking the doorway where energy enters...

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

Modify ideas with instinct...

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

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

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

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

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

10 Reed (Skywalker)


Ideas from Heaven meet ideas from Earth.

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

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

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

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

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

9 Good Road (Human, Grass)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8 Monkey

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

6 Water (Moon)

Flow with it...

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

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

It emerges...

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

'Star'; image created by LjL

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What timeline will we choose?

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

The greatest resource on planet Earth is human consciousness.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

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

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

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

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

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

3 Skull

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

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

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

Keep it simple.

Edit your life.

Get to the point.

2 Serpent

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

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

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

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

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

1 Lizard (Seed)


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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




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

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

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

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

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

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

12 Wind

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

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

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

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


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

11 Crocodile

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are your expressions and is your creativity nurturing you?

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

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

10 Flower (Sun, Lord)

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

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

Today is all about smiling.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Today, bring more light into your being by smiling.



 

[Extra message from Laurence to consider today]
 

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

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

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

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

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

I consider plasma to be the conduit for consciousness.

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

9 Storm

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

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

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

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

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

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

8 Obsidian (Obsidian Mirror, Flint)

Energy moving towards manifestation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

7 Earthmover

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

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

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

Life has an intelligence beyond our personal and immediate understanding.

What gift is here for you today?


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

6 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

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

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

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

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

Wisdom unfurling...


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

5 Eagle

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

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

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

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

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

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


Laurence on holiday in Whitstable in 2008.

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

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

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

4 Jaguar

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

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

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

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

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

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

3 Reed (Skywalker)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 Good Road (Human, Grass)

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

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

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

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

Be as an empty cup.

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

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

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

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