11 Monkey

[Thursday 30 March 2023]

Today is a day to loosen up. Trickery and cosmic humour force you to play, whether you want to or not. See the funny side. Be lateral. Today is a strange mix that offers a chance for fresh inspiration, if you can let go of the mind’s obsessive need for control.

Cosmic Interface, by LjL

Today you are being asked to create some space for more expression, more emotional elasticity. It is less about conclusions and solutions, more about spontaneity and laughter – perhaps a little twisted, quirky or delightfully perverse.

The texture of today – the energy of 11 Monkey – invites you to unusually nurture your soul, for the soul needs to be elastic if it is to flourish.

Monkey frees up the emotional body today in the 260-day count. Allow yourself to be more imaginative about the world we live in and the nature of time and space.

The 260-day Tzolkin (the Mayan Sacred Calendar) is the calendrical calibration of the soul’s cosmic nature as it interfaces with our density – which is to also to say that the Tzolkin is the key to understanding the galactic interface with Earth and this is the ‘secret’ of the 2012 era.* Although we can all see the sociological and environmental effects of the 2012 phenomenon, the essence of 2012 is a recalibration of the Earth with the Galaxy, creating an evolutionary imperative to raise consciousness in the decades after 2012 itself.

One of the more obvious effects is an alteration to the temporal substance – we seem to have less time in a day. The consensual timeframe that we experience at present is losing energy and a less dense level of experience/consciousness with a larger timeframe is being empowered.

Those who have their self-interest heavily invested in the outgoing density are attempting to close the doors, to keep us locked into the economic theatre and into that density. But if enough people shift their focus out of the mainstream economic and political game, then the old theatre will dissolve to reveal a more abundant and expansive terrain.

Starry Night, by Vincent Van Gogh, 1889

Of course that is easier said than done, but one way or another, a new focus and energy attention will emerge. Our role is to shift our attention and our energy into alignment with the evolutionary imperative.

Find the role-player warrior within, the part of yourself that is strong enough to play the game with a sense of mission and humour.

10 Dog

[Wednesday 29 March 2023]

10 Dog in the Crocodile Timewave manifests as our emotional needs being fully apparent. Today you can see the manifest state of your emotional body and really feel what it is you really need.

Friends, by Laurence James Lucas
'Different species emerge from
the same bedrock of life.' LjL

The essential and general needs for us all can be stated simply as happiness and an avoidance of suffering.

These are mostly found through relating to others, whilst having an attitude of gratitude about what is good in our experience right now.

October 2011, at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust

Today is a day of communal emotive connection, or a good day to be peaceful and to feel the truth of what you need.

It can also be a good day to have a party.

Ask yourself what it is you truly and honestly actually need for yourself. Need rather than want.

The answer will include people.

9 Water (Moon)

[Tuesday 28 March 2023]

A good day for conscious cleansing of the soul. A poignant day.

Today is a day of transcendent awakening and soulful reminiscences; a day to give thanks and blessings, and to make offerings.

If deep and possibly disturbing feelings emerge today, change the muddy waters by transcending the disturbance and by moving into stillness, through feeling that which is good in your life, right now, as it is.

Gratitude to André Eichman

incense burner

You can regain the peace in your soul and the balance in your psyche quite quickly today by tuning into gratitude.

What are you grateful for?

The story we have of ourselves underpins our reality experience; it contextualises the physical world, technology and the total social arena.

Image from here

We are not immune to the total environment – and that situation then seeps into our lives in unique, localised and personal ways. Our own small changes and our intimate struggles mirror the profound change of a species transition.

So we have to come back to the moment and be in our own situation with a heightened sense of gratitude, patience and humility for our life as it stands.

Today is a day to reclaim lost feelings and lost soul.

Give thanks for your life.

[Note added by Laurence on 9 Water of 13 February 2016, but still entirely relevant, and very pertinent, today:]

Pluto in Capricorn (2007–2023, approximately) is all about deep, profound and total change – the evolution of our whole culture. Transformation on this scale requires a journey to the depth of the unconscious and the radical revision of human origins, our concept of evolution and our concept of the cosmos – in other words, a whole new meta-myth for the human species. This will be a slow transformation, but it is an inevitable evolutionary transformation nonetheless.

8 Rabbit (Star)

[Monday 27 March 2023]

A day of organised harmony, as the unlimited abundance of Life flows into a simple manifestation. The macrocosm crystallises in the microcosm. The profound funnels into the commonplace. Recognise divinity and then make light of your day. Commit to beauty.

Sussex Downs, by LjL

Acknowledge your prosaic truth, then let go of the preciousness and commit to the surface; make the light of your life be in your life. Today you can experience surprising enjoyment and release from hard work – make it easy, for god’s sake.

Composite created by Carey

Do what you know you have to do, with a light heart, and today you will find that the energy makes light of your tasks.

Being an 8 Day, today is also a commitment to your realisations from the last timewave (the Rabbit Timewave).

All that Glitters, by Iain McCaig

All that Glitters Is Not Gold

In this era, there is an important element to Rabbit that we need to consider. The light, beautiful, shiny, novel and exciting – that is, all that intoxicates – is not always good.

In particular, we now have a burgeoning awareness of the dark and manipulative spiritual energies that masquerade as light. Many spiritual organisations, good-news whistleblowers and channellings are sourcing dark energies that create interference with spiritual sovereignty. We need to be careful not to give our essential spiritual power away to mass sentiment–led opiates.

Thank you to André Eichman

The solution is relatively simple. Connect to your own higher self or divinity in your practices; do not be afraid to think for yourself; and honour your deep intuitive responses to information. Even if it is not bad information as such, we have to ask if it is appropriate to our path.

Mass sentiment memes and movements in particular are subject to the attention of spiritual engineering. Do not emotionally invest heavily in anything that is hugely popular and intoxicating – it is not appropriate in this evolutionary transition period.

Call upon and connect to your higher self and then proceed from there. It is not difficult.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 8 Rabbit:]
The evolutionary imperative in our world is increasing the flow of energy and dissolving old forms or constructs noticeably faster. In this environment, it becomes harder to hold onto that which we consider solid. We start to wonder, what is tangible? Is anything tangible? Is anything real? Can we rely on anything?

Spiral of Empowerment, doodle by Carey

Yes, indeed, we can rely on life much more. In fact, we have to rely on life more, for we have no choice but to operate on a deeper level of faith. The forms and constructs we operate with and in are becoming more subtle. In becoming more subtle, they are in fact becoming more truly real.

The old solidities of absolutism, common sense surety, confidence in rationalities or even confidence in blissful ideology dissolve at a faster rate in the accelerated flow of consciousness.

And so the heart has to open.

Emotional release, catharsis

Each gradient of velocity – the graduations of faster-flowing consciousness – are increasing the levels of ‘complexity consciousness’, where we have progressively more time, for we are incrementally, a little bit at a time, entering a greater dimension of eternity.

7 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

[Sunday 26 March 2023]

On one hand, you need to let go; on the other hand, you need to hold on (control everything). Today you are able – or challenged – to find the mesh that is in the middle.

Composite created by Carey

Come into resonance with the harmonics of the day. Tune into different frequencies by being flexible and also strong enough to adapt to the wave of the day.

The overall energy of today requires finesse to tune into the subtle ebbs and flows – listen to the melody, but don’t drift away.

The harmonics of life; image from here

Recognise and utilise the intuitive and feeling-based tools you have, for today is the perfect day to heighten your subtle senses, as well as for being responsive to using the tools for appropriate action.

A good day to be conscious, both internally and externally.

Composite created by Carey
using images found on google

To be conscious in this way means to be willing and able; to be responsive and adaptive; and to adjust to the energies of the moment. This is the life skill of utilising surrender and will, acceptance and action, receiving and intention.

The importance of an intuitive, feeling-based focus has to be balanced with some creative direction.

6 Skull

[Saturday 25 March 2023]

A day of mini chapters, with clean beginnings and endings to different tasks.

The Quest, by LjL

Allow yourself to cut off from small attachments that are clogging your life. Cut back to the bone where necessary and be ready to refresh your day.

Skull in the Hands,
by Andrey Skull on DeviantArt

Today offers you multiple opportunities to get things done and to rest in between those activities.

The energy of the day gives you the chance to be present and enclosed in your experience, rather than being pulled into the future.

Image from here

A good day to have strong, clear boundaries and to be a conscious agent for benevolent transformation. Be firm and clear.

Here is an interesting artefact for the emergence of planetary consciousness.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 6 Skull:]
Spirituality Is Political in the 2012 Era
Occupy your centre and yet be prepared to ‘Occupy Wall Street’.

The challenge in this age is to find stillness, and yet be responsive and attentive to the world ‘out there’. The wall of thought between your inner and outer world is dissolving.

Clear View

To be committed to peace requires finding peace inside, and yet there is an equal need to say to the illegitimate war machine, the official public relations war rhetoric and imperial agenda: 'NOT IN MY NAME!'

To meditate and then to indiscriminately read the newspaper or absorb the mainstream news perspective (engineering your consent to invasion and oppression) is to remain unconscious.

So today, do remember to define your strong, clear boundaries; be the conscious agent for benevolent transformation.

5 Serpent

[Friday 24 March 2023. Six Gregorian calendar years since the passing of my beloved, Laurence James Lucas, author and creator of this blog]

Today you can connect to the life force, the Serpent energy that is at the centre of ascending and descending consciousness.

Reaching Up, by LjL

The Serpent energy is the desire for material pleasure, and yet also the desire to rise above it and to experience the bliss of the soul, as well as a whole host of juxtapositions in between carnal lasciviousness and transcendental union.

Be centred today and feel the polarity impulses of your life force.

The Temptation and Fall of Eve,
by William Blake, 1808

Make an extra effort today to centre yourself in the body; connect to the life force within you and allow its vitality to direct you.

Simply connect to your personal power today, for this is the power you already have to survive and flourish. Acknowledge it and own it – there is no need to give it away.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 5 Serpent:] 

The 2012 Era and the Enduring Reality 

The world is becoming increasingly more mutable. Reality is in a state of flux and the contracts are being renegotiated. The 2012 effect* is exerting a pressure upon us to transform –  this requires a prerequisite of releasing the old.

This nexus of mutability that we are in the midst of is the confluence of futuristic Galactic energies and the archaic, with the modern surface of materialism.

The Serpent reminds us of the soul’s fall into density and the kundalini force of survival, growth and evolution. We grow through mastering skills at our present level of experience, whilst periodically finding that we then have to let go of our present level of experience, in order to awaken to a higher level of complexity (see the Enchantments of Life page and subpages on our portal website).

This is an old LjL flipchart of the Enchantment levels,
before he identified two further levels of consciousness:
Ceres and Jupiter (between Mars and Saturn, see this link).
Nevertheless, this remains a useful graphic to help us
understand the evolution of human consciousness.

As we fundamentally change to a new psychology and a new experiential stage (a new level of complexity as described by the Enchantments), we have new skills to master.

Yet, throughout all of this change, we feel a sense of the Enduring Self. The more we change externally in linear time (evolution), the more we experience involution – the soul’s descension from beyond linear time into engagement with this timeframe.

The soul was there before you were born and, when you feel back into your life, you will feel the underlying consistency of who you are, despite the changes and adventures of your life.

Uncredited image found on Pinterest

In this 2012 era and the decades that follow, we are being asked to change our relationship with time. We are being asked to become conscious of the ascending and descending flows of consciousness.

Because of this awakening to a larger timeframe, the archaic and the futuristic are becoming increasingly connected.

The soul is not confined to the linear timeframe – that is clock time and historical. Rather, the soul is a reflection of the timeless essence of the monadic spirit and the soul expands its awareness gradually over many lifetimes.

The 260-day count that we are following in this blog allows you to connect to this larger timeframe, where time has a fractal quality.

4 Lizard (Seed)

[Thursday 23 March 2023]

Today the raw intelligence or plan of life reveals itself. This is the most basic structural imprint from which all of existence is created; it is the template realm.

Photo thanks to André Eichman

Today, you might ask if the ground of your consciousness is fertile, free from weeds and clear of stones so that there is room for the seeds of your life intentions to germinate and sprout.

Image found on google

A good day to understand that Life itself, in the general sense, is intelligent and has intentionality, direction and purpose.

Furthermore it is a good day to recognise that Life in essence is wholly abundant.

Sunflower, by Vladimir Kush

If you are stuck in an impoverished situation, today consider looking outside the box that is diminishing you and be open to a new plan, an expansion of your situation.

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

[Wednesday 22 March 2023. NEW MOON 01:23 HK time]

Key words for today: Portal opening, fertile, empty, waiting, anticipation, stirring, incomplete, freeing the mind.

Portals Opening

Energy building as you stay in the house, in the soul, in the mystery. Feel your energy stirring with some inspiration.

Subtle movement in the psyche.

The energy is in the house. A good day for social triangles and to see what mysterious emergence results in the midst of three people.

Social Triangles, by LjL

Create space in your self.

Today you might feel a little restless, not quite settling on anything. If you can allow the movement and vibration to be, and accept a degree of incomplete thoughts and actions, you can enjoy the expansion and feeling of sensing a subtle mystery that is opening in the middle of the tri-rotational energy.

2 Wind

[Tuesday 21 March 2023. Spring Equinox in HK at exactly 05:24. NEW MOON 17:24 UTC/GMT (tomorrow at 01:23 HK time)]

Feedback, receiving communications and releasing ideas.

Dancing with the Wind, by Carey

Challenges may arise with communication, delays, arguments, difficult decisions and more. Hold steady, for today is 2 Wind.

Our blocks, created by the duality within us, reveal themselves today. First, accept the situation in order to move beyond the duality lock.

Wind is an activator, the Breath, the Word, the Spirit that Initiates. Day 2 is duality. Wind is changeable and adaptable; it can be destructive, but it is always refreshing.

Image by Adrian Sommeling, from here

Potentially, this is a day of black-and-white divisions and opposites, as well as the clarity of knowing what you like and what you don’t like, what you need and what you can let go of.

The evolutionary impulse of spirit towards greater union is an oscillating process of merging and separating, cooperation and competition, dependence and autonomy.

Today, hold the space to separate that which has become a conglomeration – and which thus feels inert – so as to be ready to move forward.

Become the Captain of your own Enterprise and make a black-and-white decisive move.

Prepare to make it so...
