10 Obsidian (Obsidian Mirror, Flint)

[Tuesday 16 July 2019. Full Moon at exactly 21:38 UTC (GMT); 10.38pm British Summer Time (but not until tomorrow morning in Hong Kong, at exactly 5.38am). Today and tomorrow we have a partial lunar eclipse, visible in many places, including in Hong Kong tomorrow]


The shadow of your life and the world is revealed to you.

ET in the Shadows, by Laurence James Lucas

What is the unavoidable issue within you?

The world appears as a semi-transparent hologram, reflecting your inner feelings. A good day to understand the power of our projection.

Today is a good day to see the fundamental issues in your life. Today they can be seen and they can be seen with transparency. You will see your complexes, but also see through them to a deeper level of truth.

You might possibly encounter a shocking perspective on an aspect of your personality or your being. Do not worry, for this is not the whole truth of who you are, just some of the truth.

Obsidian Mirror is the Daykeeper sign of multidimensionality and the mirror reflections and refractions of light that give us the experience of density.

9 Earthmover

[Monday 15 July 2019]

Today you can connect to the evolutionary impulse that underpins the present human condition.

Today, being a 9 Day, is about awareness of large cycles of time, as well as change and evolution through powerfully evocative yet abstract feelings.


Glastonbury Sunrise, by LjL.
'The English countryside festival scene... dancing the sun up.'

Awaken to the changes that rumble in the soul. Soul memory is memory from beyond time–space that comes from your past, before your history. Do you remember how this moment was seeded?

Into every moment we pour a tapestry of stories; different threads that are rooted in timeless zones and archaic evolutionary pasts.

Today, you can potentially transcend your present trajectory and see the options from different timelines and with different outcomes. A good day to experience – through feeling – the multiple potentials of different timelines that are encoded into each moment.


Aztec stone calendar

If you have felt blocked for some time in any area of your life, today is a good day to see that you can open up to another reality.

Reality is an agreement. Agreements create structures of reality. If an agreement is serving us, we are growing. On the other hand, if we really are blocked – if there really comes a point where we cannot seem to move forward in any way – then we do have the option to renegotiate.

It is amazing when you look back on your life and see certain situations that felt so permanent at the time, which you subsequently liberated yourself from. Do you remember a previously solid situation with impenetrable walls from which you are now free? Reality tunnel.

Whilst you were in that psychological space, you had a particular future. Once you moved out of that space, the future changed.


 Reality is an agreement;
flipchart by LjL, created for our Enchantments of Life workshops,
explaining the structures of reality and our agreements,
based on our Enchantment level*

If a situation you are experiencing is truly stuck, then consider dropping it and creating a new one.

The way to do this is to realise that any situation can only inhibit you with your agreement. We choose structures that do come with limitations, because the total experience rewards one enough to accept some compromises. This is wise.

So evaluate your situation honestly. If you find that there is no longer any growth or reward, then you have the divine right, the legitimate right, to renegotiate a new situation.

This is how evolution works. We evolve from one structure to another. Each structure becomes more inclusive of more of reality. Each chapter of our lives is a relatively steady state of existence, but things eventually have to change.

Change, evolution and growth is always an offer made by Life so that we may grow and live larger. It does mean letting something go, which is not easy, but the rewards outweigh the loss.



The human species is presently renegotiating its reality. The consensual world of the mainstream has served evolution and is still serving some people, but the rewards for the species are diminishing rapidly. It will take some time for the main culture to shift – luckily you do not have to wait for everyone.

In fact, it is important for the sake of the collective that some individuals who have woken up early enough take the initiative to step into the new unchartered land now.

Are you one of those pioneers?

The new landscape is relatively empty and is in a state of flux. It will take some courage, but the potentials are enormous – the first steps are tentative, the way ahead is unclear, and the going is slow. But the choice is there, if you have a spirit of adventure.

8 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

[Sunday 14 July 2019]

Commitment to your role in the matrix, as defined by the last timewave (which was the Vulture or Warrior Timewave).

Look after the self by deciding to live your truth, so as to be strong enough to be a healing presence. Feel the underlying essence, the sacred structure you are working with, and gain some clarity about the limits you wish to set yourself.


Warrior Bee by LjL

Consciously knowing the appropriate limitations brings safety and the realisable freedom that we all yearn for.

8 Days are days of implementing and organising that which is emerging, which is to say today is a good day to bring things towards manifestation, to actively draw energies into cohesion and harmony.

Today is a day of implementing energy in a practical fashion, compressing ideas and inspiration.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 8 Vulture:]
It is imperative that you not only centre yourself in stillness, but call upon Light and Spirit, as well as the spirits that serve your higher self. Do connect and liaise with spirits using your careful definitions. Call upon specific healing, cleansing and clearing energies with words either spoken aloud or said silently.

The efficacy of this simple act is also increasing in power as more cosmic energy, including interstellar plasma, is flooding the planet. Darkness dissipates when Light is present, but the Light does have to be called upon.

Use the power of your attention, your words and your imagination.

It is simple; just do it.

7 Eagle

[Saturday 13 July 2019]

Feeling the Wholeness
A good day for emotional intelligence and an integrated clarity.

The integrated clarity of 7 Eagle means the ability to focus on a detail, whilst simultaneously retaining the awareness of context and feeling.


Free wallpaper image from here

The challenge is to not get lost in the details; to engage whilst retaining one’s sense of greater vision.

Alternatively, the challenge is to engage with some specifics, rather than just flying off into an indulgent fantasy. Listen to the subtle feelings whilst performing daily tasks.

Move into resonance today with the mind of the world. Hone in on your locality and goal, and retain the balanced perspective of both the larger and smaller pictures.



7 Days are halfway through the timewave and provide us with the whole energy of the timewave through resonance. We can feel the totality – not the sophisticated mechanics of the timewave (which is for 12 Days), but the general wholeness.

Eagle is the immanent consciousness that we can perceive and engage with. The environment thus perceived is then seen in all its glory – and it is to be rejoiced at, for it is full of beauty, abundance and love. Once we see this, we can draw upon the bountiful energy and call it into our life.


Image found on Pinterest

There is more than enough to go round. Everything we need is available, once we are conscious of the fact that we are drawing energy from the magnificence of all that is around us.

With a natural gratitude that comes with our awakening perception and experience of the vital immanence we exist within, we can then ask unashamedly for life to provide for us abundantly.

6 Jaguar

[Friday 12 July 2019]

The feeling self is an instinctive self, prowling the unseen environment of the World Soul. Enjoy the forming thoughts and enticing feelings that arise and sink in your consciousness.

A day of feeling alert.

Follow the rhythm of the day instinctively, staying alert to the playful moment.


Composite created by Carey

Jaguar is tied to the Earth in its wild state, especially at night. Jaguar is the feminine earthy vitality, sensual and powerful.

Today, you might feel a strong need to connect to the wild environment, feeding your gratitude for the beauty around you.



A good day to allow space for shamanic practice. Follow the call of nature, and consciously and directly evoke connection to natural spirits and sacred space.

There is something beautiful about how energy unfolds on a 6 Day, while Jaguar provides a visceral connection to nature and to shamanism. Jaguar Days bring a luxurious heightening of the senses.


Image from here

[On 6 Jaguar of 29 May 2012, Laurence wrote the following:]
‘Jaguar days are always more shamanic and jungley, which for me this morning was doubly so. I awoke with a strong need not to do my daily qi gong or yoga, but to just lie on my back on our roof terrace instead, listening to the intense cicada and bird chorus.

After one hour, I went into the hills here on Lamma. The day was overcast, breezy and unusually cool (though still very humid). The wind, insects and sheer verdant growth in the hills really evoked the jungle and a shamanic atmosphere … not to mention the small brown snake and the big jet-black snake (Chinese cobra, I think) on the path that my dog and I bumped into. That gave me some shock and awe!’

5 Reed (Skywalker)

[Thursday 11 July 2019]

Today observe everything all around you and see how you feel in different situations. The message of the day is to be aware, to be conscious in all directions of the energy sphere in which you live, whilst staying in the centre.

Connect to your higher self at the same time as being centred in home and family. Gather your energy and resources; find your inner authority.

This can be a detached, floating, suspended and waiting kind of day; a day of emphasising internal energy.



The proactive person will be consciously centring themselves today. Be detached and observe the world all around you. Increase your ability to centre yourself within your soul by sensitising yourself to yourself first, before opening up into the human and cosmic environment. See yourself as a reflected fractal of the whole cosmos, but know that you are your own unique filtered version of all that is.

Sit in the middle of a circle, acknowledge the Four Directions of East, South, West and North, then acknowledge the Sky above and the Earth below. Feel yourself centred on Earth in your life whilst connecting to the higher self beyond time and space.



Call upon the higher self to help you find the strength of mind to recognise that you are the author of your life, and that you also play your part – at least from time to time – to act as guide to other people.

Evoke the intelligence of your centre; feel into your subtle centre. Feel the core sense of being awake to all that surrounds you.

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

[Wednesday 10 July 2019]

The Long Good Road of Life
What is your destiny? Today is a good day to ask yourself: ‘What is it that endures in me? What is consistent throughout my life?’

By seeing the essential theme of your life up to this point, you can remind yourself of your destiny, which will be a continuation and development of the same theme. However, it will never be fully definable in sharp logical terms.

Today can also be a day of collective feeling; a sense of commonality. Today we can feel part of the human collective family and the human experience. Today is a day where we can feel our membership of the species, as well as the patterns and possibilities that we are working with.



We all walk a path that has an essential similarity to the paths of all others.

Today you may also sense the long good road ahead, a soft focus view, a general understanding of the basic parameters of your life yet to unfold. It is as if you are receiving a message from your soul.

Alternatively: You might feel frustrated, inhibited or confused about the lack of options in life, or feel a deep sense of life being scripted beyond your control. Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough options, ie you have to earn money; your life is framed by your appearance, age, gender or ethnicity; your responses are automated from early programming, etc. If that is the case, just sit with the feeling and be conscious of it.

If you can truly feel the sense of the quintessential humanness – the human experience you are having – no matter what, then you can be more present.  If you can truly see the foundational pattern, then you will find a degree of liberation by seeing your role and your purpose in the human context.

The consciousness of Good Road is the existential human experience. It is an unfolding journey, where the challenge is to use the mind, to create purpose and to sculpt a story from your journey.

But, more than that, it is to stay open to the is-ness, the human experience of life.

3 Monkey

[Tuesday 9 July 2019]

A good energy day for higher creativity. Talk to your muses.

Feel the weave of the reality tapestry, the underlying dynamic movement of life.


'Shapeshifters: archaic and futuristic transformers'
by Laurence James Lucas

The playful spirit of 3 Monkey knows no boundaries and crosses the object–subject divide. The slightly intangible sense of something truly supernatural and wonderful might encroach upon your consciousness today. Was it real? Ah, well, what is real?

Today is a good day to play with the edges of consciousness, either with a cat-nap, some easy meditation or through daydreaming. Allow yourself a little drift.


Our trickster feline Nougat
having a cat-nap

Monkey is creativity, the deceptively brilliant intelligence that lies within all art and the construction of reality.

Monkey is a trickster that can appear to be playful and adolescent, yet is actually focused on weaving the fabric of reality, unseen by those who look for overly simple logical and linear constructs.

Being a 3 Day, today is not a day to complete creative tasks, but rather to allow yourself to be inspired, without attempting to finish or understand where you are heading with it. Be playful. Recognise you will waver with ideas on a 3 Day, but allow the feelings some latitude.

Subtle energy moves within your soul and it feels enlivening.


Thank you Daniel Clarke

Note from Carey: Laurence often experienced lucid dreaming, and very often on 3 Monkey. He says of this day: ‘I seem to always have a profound astral connectivity on 3 Monkey…

On 3 Monkey of 21 July 2009, he wrote:
3 Monkey started for me with an amazing lucid dream of floating across the land in a way that felt like running without running. The dream experience felt so familiar and so real. This speaks to me of the energy of dreams and how, on one hand, they remind us of a more subtle reality, while on the other hand, how subtle energy crosses into and affects our “real world”.’

2 Dog

[Monday 8 July 2019]

The Duality of Needs
Hold the space and meet the challenge.


Chocolate and Sambal

The duality of feelings from the soul manifests most obviously in the realm of relationship. This is challenging, of course, but also offers the beauty of contrast. Feel beneath the surface of opposition and you will enjoy the contrast you get from your significant other. Sometimes two people can act as one and look out into the world together.

Companions and friends Pocket and Chocolate
in their youth, in resonance

2 Dog is a day of emotional contrast. As today can be emotionally challenging, accept and feel into the duality or polarity of the day without trying to work out a resolution in the mind.

The Dog Daykeeper is related to the basic emotions and needs of our psyche – needs for companionship on the good road of life, as well as our appetites for food, sex and comfort.


Me with our two dogs Stacy and Sunny, in my youth

Dog rules emotional territory and the defence of that territory. This includes personal and community territorial boundaries, as well as the laws that accompany the emotional boundaries of a person, a relationship or a community.

Dog is also the day of guardianship – and that can include the spirits that guide and protect us on the subtle planes.

1 Water (Moon)

[Sunday 7 July 2019]

Today, 1 Water (also called Moon; known as Muluc to the Maya), sees the start of a new 13-day timewave, one which gives us access to the deepest and most subtle of feelings, the soulful and the ethereal.

Composite created by Carey
using images found on Google

The teaching of the Water Timewave is how to be in the flow of life’s energies; how to surrender to and feel – and thereby be connected to – the River of Life.

Give of yourself; cleanse and purify the soul; make offerings to Life and to other people, to increase your sense of soulful immersion in the deeper dimensions of reality.

The consciousness of being a droplet in the ocean of spirit…

The Water or Moon Daykeeper represents the connection to soul and greatly increases sensitivity. This Daykeeper (and its timewave) requires us to retain our connection by honouring the fact that our existence is dependent upon all that has gone before, as well as upon the stream of life in which we swim. To this end, we are to remain conscious of clearing and cleansing the blockages in the stream.


Image from Imgur

The Maya associate this Daykeeper with ‘owing’ and ‘offering’. Our existence owes much to divinity, to the ancestors and to those whose work we build upon.

This is the timewave to cleanse and consciously purify with the spirit of water, to burn incense or light candles in a sacred manner and to feel the gratitude within us for our lives.


Water purification ritual
Image found on Google, from here

Part of that is allowing yourself to have what you really need, in order to be in a space of gratitude. You cannot fake it. Repressing one’s desires just leads to resentment.

If you experience turbulent emotions, feel blocked, are suffering or feel impoverished, then this timewave is the perfect period to clear debts and do ceremonies of gratitude. You will find that peace and tranquillity can return quickly if you do this, and you will feel immersed in the soulful realm.

Spend time near water, allow yourself to feel things deeply, and regain a deep sense of connection over the next 13 days.

13 Rabbit (Star)

[Saturday 6 July 2019]

The truth of you is that you are pulled in many directions, but choices have to be made. Today is a day where you can become conscious of the many things you are attracted by.

LjL was very attracted by the beach,
the sea, stones and pebbles,
and by making patterns of everything he found

Truth is everywhere, in everyone and everything. Today you can access the realisation that you are radiating your story, your perception and your take on the world into the universal sea of light.

A day to appreciate the abundance of everything and how all life experience is valid in its own way.


Earth collage by LjL

The proliferation of all things in all directions. Celebrate this day, enjoy the expanse of it as the day has a luminosity and a lightness of spirit to it. It is a good day to indulge yourself and let go of your normal restraints and balance – not forever, but for today.

A good day for speculative enquiry into the bizarre, the fringe and the portentous.

Alternatively: Allow the self to explore all of your most exciting potentials and fantasies through the imagination, as an exercise of release, renewal and elasticity.

The explosion of excitement creates the implosion of awareness to the central core of your soul.

Scatter your thoughts in all directions with abandon (and detachment) to the outer edges of your psyche, and be then be conscious of the blissful emptiness that is revealed at the centre.


Graphic by LjL

The timeless anticipation of pure consciousness as it awaits to encounter all experience…

Rabbit is the ripening of consciousness with its accompanying abundance, richness and vitality – and is therefore intoxicating. The spirit shines outwards from within and illuminates all things. As this is a 13 Day, which is movement in all directions, you can understand the vitality of the energy on the 260-day count frequency.

Be sure to find a moment to replenish and rejuvenate with a power nap if you feel drained at any point in the day.

12 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

[Friday 5 July 2019]

A great day to feel balanced between reason and intuition. A day where you can hold the essence of your truth in your hand.


The whole truth of your life, your opinions and your aspirations is a vast, complex and seemingly contradictory energy. So how do we synthesise this truth into a coherent systemic whole?

The essence can be held, but of course the array of details have to be held lightly, without clenching.

Feel the breeze – maybe shoot the breeze – whilst enjoying a sense of having a firm foundation rooted in the ineffable.

A great day where you can feel a real connection to the source energy, the essential truth, not as a concept nor as an equation, but as a flowing adaptive light that has an enduring quality, as it is a continuum that runs through your life. 


A beautiful fractal pattern by Mobius Dragon IFS,
from here

Complex organised patterns emerge in your psyche, then slowly morph into a new form that retains the essence of the previous revelation.

At the same time, you recognise that you need to actively choose to place your attention on that which resonates with your core truth. There are limits to what you can do, who you can be and what you can attend to – you cannot hold it all in your psyche.


Another gorgeous complex organised pattern.
Fractal by Jax from here

Come into alignment today with the enduring thread that runs through your life, the thread that has been woven by your divinity. Choose to stay in alignment with your soul through the cascading journey of life.

If you have been following this 13-day cycle, the truth that has been building in this timewave is now present; it has organically emerged. Today, a sense of one’s truth and personal strength surfaces.

11 Skull

[Thursday 4 July 2019]

Today is a powerful day for stepping into a new energy, for stepping over a threshold from one type of energy to another and for appropriate surrender.

LjL, stepping step over a threshold,
from one type of energy to another...

Examine your life without sentiment, exploring two opposite viewpoints of who you are and what you will become. Enjoy the sense of the dissolution of outworn aspects of the self. This is creating a portal for the emergence of new aspects of self.

You may well find that there is an element of ruthlessness today in your attitude to what you personally regard as obviously deluded, uninformed or deliberately misleading, or to be a manipulative fabricated story. Other people’s lies or delusions – as well as your own self-delusion – appear transparent to you as your spirit rips a hole in the fabric of the theatrical backdrop.


Reality Is an Agreement, flipchart by LjL

Today, the light of a cohesive picture can shine through the trivia and distractions. Use that ruthless attitude to rip through the superficial information flow with your clear perception.

Today is a good day for realistic considerations. However, the challenge is to not be cynical, but to stay open to the positive existential elements of life, as well as the cold bare bones of the Skull Daykeeper.

image from here

11 Days are where the energy of the timewave opens up laterally and to the past. Today, aspects of yourself – possibly not that flattering – seek to be heard, as 11 seeks a degree of integration or adjustment. 11 Days can be quite unstable in order to loosen you up and shake you up.

Your life is part of a continuum. You have an ancestral heritage that has brought you here; that heritage is a story of grand adventure for sure, but also of ordinary drama and ordinary living.


Part of my ancestral heritage;
Great Grampa and Great Granny Vail

Your truth becomes more encompassing today as you release some brittleness. The spiritual seeks to be grounded in the mundane and the ego dies a little.

Today you can open up to a greater truth as you release a block in your perception and your personal boundaries, ultimately enabling you to reach out to more of life. Enjoy the liberation that comes from accepting that whatever scenario manifests or is true of you does not matter on a deep level and that you are free. You are free to be whatever is.
