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

[Saturday 23 March 2019]

The Long Good Road of Life is an adventure that we cannot ultimately control – the most powerful energy within life is Mystery.

Foredawn is also known as Dark House, or Dark Night, the moment before the Sun rises and, as night culminates, the time between worlds.

Today, 12 Foredawn in the Good Road Timewave, is a good day to truly accept that we cannot completely know it all, nor can we maintain everything perfectly, nor even fully control ourselves.

The brilliant light of the void feeds us with the joy of emptiness and the wonder and awe of the absolute mystery. We both revere the mystery and fear the mystery.

Respect the womb of creation, trust in life and embrace the open-ended journey of consciousness that continues after death.

Allow an element of insecurity and uncertainty to exist in your subconscious and then you can truly walk the walk of life with real confidence, for you have allowed yourself to have faith in the intelligence of Life itself, which is always one step ahead of us in its benevolent abundant totality.

Doors Open
Yesterday the Mayan Pulse was orientated to the gifts of your life as it is. Today it opens the doors to new possibilities and the way to step forward on your path.

Laurence loved this place and felt the positive,
nurturing energies here very strongly

The incoming energy is facilitated by communication on every level, be that telephone, email or inspired guidance from subtle realms.

Communicate and receive communication today with full awareness. Allow yourself to be broadband in giving and receiving information, but distil and integrate before acting upon any inspiration.

Step forward and communicate

Cosmic rays whistle through the Earth and a doorway opens up to the bifurcating paths of time.

Life presents you with different options; each one unfolds into a different expression of your destiny. Be attentive to information and recognise how futures are built starting from the most subtle movements in your psyche.

Feel and accept the nourishment available today.

A day of totally accepting what is; waking up to, sensing and receiving all that is good all around you. Appreciate that which is readily available.

Your life produces rewards. As you step forward, life automatically credits you with the goodness of enrichment, regardless of failures, mistakes and bad times.

If any burdens or problems do manifest today, the way forward is to accept their existence, but do not let them define your life. Instead, expand your awareness to see the abundance that is already in your life.

Feel and accept the cornucopia of life.

[Wednesday 20 March 2019. Vernal Equinox at exactly 21:58 UTC (but tomorrow morning here in HK, at exactly 05:58)]

A great day to feel truly awakened.

Your Long Good Road opens up ahead as you see the illuminated horizon and become conscious of an aspect of your arrival – your destiny.

Be sensitive to the intuitive flash that reveals to you the ‘You’ who you are to be.

A good day to find yourself at the end of the road, beyond the unfolding time we all experience, looking back to where you are now on the linear path.

Alternatively, use your imagination to go forward in time and ask yourself who you want to be, who are you in essence, and how can you be more like that.

[Tuesday 19 March 2019]

Today, make the commitment to break some outworn patterns.

Novelty on the Horizon

You feel the comfort of your home or inner psychological haven while the Storm of life’s chaotic challenges and adventures brew outside.

Today, steady yourself and know that the exhilaration of the journey awaits you ‘out there’.

Heartfelt thanks to my sister Caroline for this photo

Your heart can be gladdened that excitement and novelty is on the horizon, and that you are able to enjoy the comfort of this moment while you prepare yourself by making that emotional investment of commitment.

Start to release yourself from any ritual or behaviour that will interfere with your ability to enjoy the fresh face of life that is about to be presented to you.

The World Out There, by LjL

Resonant Reflections
Whatever you see ‘out there’ in your world today has a more direct resonance with your state of consciousness than usual.

There will be a duality of light and dark reflections, true reflections and distorted reflections. By staying attuned and by feeling the energy, you can select and know the true reflections.

A day to look for – and to expect – the good. Receive the images and messages, people and places that confirm your purpose and your true nature.

Clarify your inner world by making choices from what appears in the world out there.

5 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

[Saturday 16 March 2019]

Find your truth and hold your centre.

Consider your next move carefully. Then calmly and with surety start to move.

The Journey of Life – the Thousand-Mile Journey – begins with a single step forward. Make your first step one that is firm, confident and true. You then change the options and experience of the next thousand miles.

Alternatively, slow down or stop what you are doing or what you are actively involved in. Be prepared to reset or integrate more before proceeding.

Take a moment.

Map your coordinates. Think and visualise spatially.

Where are you on your journey?

Composite created by Carey

The drama of life presents itself in its four essential elements. You see the essence of four directions and four forces from an elevated view. Questions arise in the mind – ‘Which direction should I go in?’ Get your bearings. Find your location, place yourself in the cosmos.

All around you is a living environment. A true orientation involves a communication with the directions, the immediate environment and the larger environment.

Medicine Wheel image from here

Shamanism offers the tools for direct communication with the environment and your essential orientation. The simplicity of the medicine wheel and its evocation of the spirit of the directions veils its extraordinary power. If you have never worked with the directions in the medicine wheel, I urge you to take some time to explore it.

It is simple. Anyone can do it, and the doing of it empowers you. The directions orientate you instantly on Earth and in multiple dimensions.*

Today is a good day to locate yourself on your path.

* Note from Carey: Laurence used the directions as part of his daily shamanic practice for at least three decades. To read more about Laurence and his shamanic practice, please visit these pages on our portal website: Shamanism; and, A Broader Perspective on Shamanism.

Stalking Energy
Instinct directs you as you walk through the day.

Feel the energy and intelligence of the body in each step as you walk. The more you can feel into the body – staying connected to the living environment, yet inside the body – the more you can access the immanent cosmic reality of the cat-mind that is comfortable with Earth and Heaven as one playground.

Stalking Jaguar,

In this 2012 era,* we can more easily access the living field of energy in which we move around and in which we have our being, as long as we take time to unplug from the consensual matrix – and therein lies the rub.

Since the 1990s, there has been a massive influx of cosmic energy/consciousness into the Earth. In its manifest form, this is high-energy plasma, which is creating what is termed ‘space weather’. (The phrase ‘space weather’ came into being in 1990, due to the enormous influx of cosmic rays that flooded into our locality in the space surrounding our planet.)

The plasma is then being stepped down into the Earth.

Plasma is the fundamental state of matter and is the conduit for consciousness to interact with matter.

We are walking around in the cosmic electric jungle. Feel the subtle electric field by directing your thoughts towards it. Evoke the spirit of the cosmic influx and recognise that the environment you are in is alive.

It is simple – just open up your awareness and utilise your imagination, your will and the subtle energy you can feel with your hands.

Stalk the power that will connect you to the new vitality that is seeking you.

2 Reed (Skywalker)

[Wednesday 13 March 2019]

The duality of Earth and Heaven, of body and mind, of the cosmic and the mundane. Span the great divide with your mind and consciousness.

Hold within your being the energy of the question, ‘How do I unite that which is above with that which is below?’ 

Thanks to Annie Knibb

Dualities can tear us apart, until we are ready to feel and experience the unity that inherently underpins and over-lights them.

Recognise duality today, yet search for the unification. This is a challenge –  but the discomfort of the challenge stands at the threshold of the Oneness. Be with the pull of opposites without surrendering to either one; hold the space.

Connecting Heaven and Earth

A good day to enjoy the contrast between Heavenly aspirations and inspirations, and the visceral delights of the body and nature.

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

[Tuesday 12 March 2019]

A new 13-day timewave starts today, Good Road (aka Human, Grass, Long Good Road, or Eb).

There is always so much more to life than we can see at any time...

Are you ready for the Good Road Timewave? The adventure of the open road into the unknown and uncharted – yet benevolently abundant – landscape begins today.

Stepping into the reality of the ever-present open road.

Journey of the Fool

Apologies but I could not find the artist to credit

If you have been tuned into Radio Tzolkin over the previous 26 days, you will have navigated through Skull and Storm timewaves, which are both powerfully transformative. Do you feel a stirring sense of something new within you?

Alternatively, if you feel stuck or hindered by excessive baggage, take the time to open your heart to the idea that life begins anew today. Invoke the spirit of adventure on the open road in your imagination right now. 

Today begins a new timewave to bring you into resonance with the adventure of life – its twists and turns, its arrivals and the abundance of people, as well as the challenge of staying open-minded.

The adventurer enjoys the journey more than the arrival, whilst still looking ahead to the next stage-post. Abundance is the state of openness, where life flows through you.

Call upon the benevolent abundant spirit of growth and adventure to liberate your heart.

You decided to be born at this time, for your soul knows that this is a pivotal period in our history as humanity approaches the fork in the timeline road.

Expand your imagination beyond the culture...

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 1 Good Road:]
The Long Good Road of Life reflects the Long Good Road of the Celestial Path of the solar orb, for life is not just played out on land – it is danced and celebrated above for all to see, if they would look…

A 13-day cycle of remembrance begins today as you open your mind to remember the abundance of life’s adventure.

A great day to liberate yourself from the weight of your concerns and to release yourself from worry. Life is asking you to enjoy the unexpected. If you can be spontaneous today, it is a day of playfulness.

When the cosmic matrix is laughing, life can seem mighty strange due to the fragmentation and disruption of what we think is important.

Trickster energy. How do we manage it?

We have to laugh at ourselves.

Habituation is assuming without understanding,
judging without weighing,
reacting from bias rather than evident fact.
It is a reduction of our awareness
rather than an expansion of our consciousness.

12 Dog

[Sunday 10 March 2019]

Today is a good day for a fresh understanding of your emotional needs.

The 12th day of every 13-day timewave (also called a 'Wavespell' by José Argüelles) offers a coherent understanding of that particular mini-cycle. This is especially true on an emotional level with 12 Dog, the 12th day of the Storm Timewave.
Chocolate and Sambal, at Secret Rock

If you have been experiencing a dissolution of all of the foundations of your reality, if you have broken free of habitual thinking and mechanised needs, then you have run into the edge of the Matrix. Where do you go from there? Back into society, relationships and the immediacy of nurture and comfort.

In the Storm Timewave, you may have been traversing at speed through multiple paradigms and theatres, experiencing, touching base or getting a whiff of occulture, mysticism, futurism, love, community, technology or the manner of the diversity that exists within your life. 

Image via Google

On this day of 12 Dog, it can all fit together into your expanding holism by coming back to the basic emotional level of need.

Today, ask yourself ‘What do I need?’

Today offers the opportunity connect to your growing consciousness of the benevolent, wondrous and light-filled totality of life as something you can feel and relate to. Today, you can feel a sense of companionship with many beings.

11 Water (Moon)

[Saturday 9 March 2019]

Painting by the very talented Annie Knibb 

Today brings us the energy of increased fluidity.

The doors to the depths of your soul are opened as forgotten feelings flood in.

If you have been experiencing the Storm effect – the maelstrom of directional changes and discomfort of chaordic pressures and activities – then today you can move more easily in to and out of the eye of the storm, the inner connective space of stillness and/or deeper connection. The access is through the feelings.

However, if you have not yet quite got with the programme by tuning into the 260-day pulse, this can be your day to feel the effects of the electrifying nature of the Storm Timewave all around you. If your life feels flat, then break out of beige and follow the pulse of the Cosmic Earth.

In general, the day is very fluid. It allows us to access new feelings and old feelings and to be adaptable. The energy is flexible, malleable and pliable and it washes away the blocks to the new freedom or new habits looking to come into your life.

Some troubles can be washed away if you are open to the energy.
