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.
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.

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Cynicism towards much of the mainstream seems to be a healthy emotion in this epoch, and decluttering our mind of outdated conditioning regarding the present social system is an important part of being the change we wish to see.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