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.

Today is a day where you can recognise 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 each 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.
