7 Vulture (Warrior, Owl or Turkey)

LjL being still and listening, as part of his daily practice.
Here he is on the beach in Koh Samui in 2007

Be Still and Listen
That is your wisdom talking to you.

7 Vulture (also known as Warrior, Owl or Turkey) is a great day to free yourself from the shackles of the mind; a strong, silent kind of day as you go about your business with simplicity.

Be still and come into resonance with your true self. Be like the Owl and the Vulture – patient and resilient.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by demands from the world, hold your energy, for within the maelstrom of being pulled by other people or deadlines, a magical solution and innovative opportunity can arise – if you just hold still.

Allow wisdom to shine through by dispelling the darkness of confusion through your resolve.

7 Warrior is a day of truth. Your truth can harmonize with others, without it being exactly the same truth.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 7 Vulture:]
Remember that the keynotes for the Mayan Sacred Calendar days describe a particular frequency within the day; they are not the representation of all the energies you live within.

The seven days of the week set a basic underlying pattern for society. Then we also have to consider the Moon and its position as it transits your astrological template, which heavily flavours your emotional ebb and flow. And then there are also all the other planets…

However, if you follow the 260-day pulse of the Mayan Sacred Calendar consistently, this pulse gets louder.

Why would you do that? Because you are the sort of person looking to become conscious of the subtle and the profound.

[Laurence spent a lot of his life writing, about all sorts of things that interested him and which he wanted to explore. He also kept a daily personal journal, using pen and paper, and believed strongly in the positive power of writing things down. Here is a message posted by Laurence on 7 Vulture of 25 February 2015:]
In my ongoing work with clients, particularly those who do a series of sessions with me, including shamanic work, I will always ask my clients to write stuff down as part of the process. Here is why: How Personal Writing Can Positively Affect Mental Health

6 Eagle

Smooth, flowing, comfortable rhythmic changes of perception that allow you to organize your dreams and your visions.

Today affords you the opportunity to harmonize your overall sense of reality with your emotional needs; a blend of the earthly and the spiritual.

What’s more, the perceptions you have today can fit nicely with the shifting perceptions of those around you.

Have a smooth relaxed flight, see all around you and zoom in on the appropriate tasks as they surface, one after another...

Not an eagle, but a falcon (I think. Please correct me if I am wrong!).
On 13 August 2013, which was in fact an Eagle day (though 5 Eagle, not 6 Eagle)
we were in the Isle of Wight visiting the fabulous Garlic Farm.
The Haven Falconry Bird of Prey Centre had a small display in the fields nearby.
Laurence was able to do one of the things he really, really wanted to do –
to commune with a falcon (or a similar bird of prey).
They looked at each other for a long time;
LjL was in awe and bubbling with joy, while the falcon seemed equally fascinated!

5 Jaguar

'Shamanic Jaguar'
Beautiful, but uncredited, image from Pinterest

Today is a day when you:

1. Walk into and feel at home in the emotional jungle; instinctive and wild, free, belonging to no-one, yet never fully alone.

2. Feel a slight disconnection and alienation that never settles as life is always encroaching.

3. Instinctively feel connected and part of all reality, loving the universal matrix that you are prowling in, recognizing it as a gameplayer reality.

4. Experience a dynamic alertness to life all around you, as you are conscious of the immediacy. Things lurk in the shadows all around us, yet we are protected by our sovereign power and instinct – visualize the magnificence of the black panther.

Jaguar is the emotional energy of anticipation – emotive alertness – that arises from your centre in the instant before you relate to anyone or anything. Your emotional centre is a bubbling feeling, full of mystery and movement, instinctive and responsive to other living creatures.

From your centre, you can connect to the four directions of East, South, West and North, as well as Up and Down.

In the Land of the Crow, by LjL

[Laurence posted this extra message on 5 Jaguar of 27 July 2016]

Hair-crested Drongo,
thank you to Katherine Forestier
Talking with Crows
I could not sleep last night after 2.30am due to this waning quarter moon, which was aspecting my natal Mars. Eventually I got up at 4am, sat on the roof killing mosquitoes and enjoying the gradual awakening of the day. I got out to my special wild garden by about 5.45am, feeling tired – no way I was going to do a full ceremony. But, as I often forget, the best things happen without ceremony as such. I just did some processing and simple energy exercises and thought, ‘Well, I will wait until 7am, then go home.’ I was simply enjoying the early morning heat and chorus.

At 7am exactly, my friends the Crows turned up. They live in the hood, but like to stay hidden except for special occasions. There was a small group of them very close, making a hell of a racket. So I talked to them and they talked back, of course.

One thing I was wondering was how many of them were there, three or four maybe. At that point they flew as one – and revealed their number. Five... of course, 5 crows on 5 Jaguar.

The rest of the conversation is between me and the crows.

Hair-crested Drongo, thank you to Katherine Forestier
[Note from Carey: One spin of the Tzolkin ago, on the last 5 Jaguar, when I first reposted Laurence's message about Talking with Crows, I got a message from his old and very dear friend Jon Marston, who said:]
'Laurence and I went on a journey to an enchanted woodland in the centre of Dorking, Surrey, called the Glory Wood....we stood in the middle of a circle of trees and crows surrounded us talking loudly from every was another strange magical encounter!'

[On 5 Jaguar of 4 January 2013, Laurence added a link to an article in his Mystic Cyber Crow blog, to introduce us to the Medicine Wheel, entitled ‘The Medicine Wheel Will Empower Your Consciousness with Real Time’. Please click to view the article.]

4 Reed (Skywalker)

Uncredited image (found on LjL's computer)

4 Reed (also known as Skywalker) offers you the opportunity to see all sides of your relationships, your emotional state or your basic needs from a higher space.

A day where you can detach from your emotional involvements to see them more clearly. Meta-programme your emotional body.

The challenge today is to not be too fixed about your ideas and opinions. See your emotional script and then set a small intention based on where it is you would like to be. 

SkyRoom Mirror from here
Be conscious of any issues you have at the moment, but, rather than fuelling the problems and issues, be true to the higher ideas you have about who you are, your life, life itself and human nature.

Accept and understand, yet rise above the emotions.

More than anyone I've ever met,
Laurence was able to rise above his emotions
and to return to his inner core of joy and
to his unassailable belief in the beauty and benevolence of Life.

[Note from Carey: To better understand this calendrical system, and in particular to tune into Laurence James Lucas's perception and many years experiential investigation of the energies involved in this 260-day year, it is well worth taking the time to read some of the other pages in this blogsite.]

3 Good Road (Human, Grass)

 From Google images, part of a flash mob initiative

Today is about stepping forward onto the path and beginning the journey.

On the Long Good Road of Life, we are guided by invisible friends from the spirit world.

Walk with joy today as the energy moves out of yesterday’s polarity. If you feel stuck today, just do something – it is one step at time. A good day to talk with other people, maybe lots of people, without necessarily worrying about direction; just get energy moving.

Know that life itself is intelligent and will guide you.

The rational mind – the intellect – cannot ultimately guide you, but the mind is not to be negated. Use your mind whilst knowing you cannot reach an ultimate conclusion. Life cannot be fully worked out. However, mental effort enables us to ask better questions – which then supply new partial truths, which then lead on to even clearer questions.

So it is we move forward.

Step forward with an openness that values the mind as a tool, but not as the determiner of your reality, and you will be on the road that is your destiny.

This day reminds me of the three worlds of the shamanic universe and the multiple paths that emerge from the different paradigms of astrology, shamanism, developmental psychology and just about anything else.

The different pathways of learning and experience all start to converge after a period of time; all novelty-led explorations eventually lead us to integrate. 

The interconnections and essential truths will eventually reveal themselves, if you continue down the road.

Trust in the journey of life.

[On 3 Good Road of 26 Feb 2010, Laurence added a link to his Mystic Cyber Crow blogsite that is still useful and relevant today:]
'My short blog entitled ‘Enjoy Life and Be the Change in the World’ is appropriate to today.'

Photo by our friend and excellent videographer, Jason Lo, who also departed
these Earthly Realms far, far too early (from our perspective at least).
RIP Jason 4 October 2017; 10 Rabbit.
Laurence and I both love this tree photo, which we referred to as 'Jason's Tree'.

2 Monkey

Two Monkeys who followed us around the grounds
of the Tropical Spice Gardens, Penang

The challenge of the Dog Timewave, as 2 Monkey tells us, is how to hold two opposing views and beliefs; how to entertain the fact that differences between people, their needs and their perspectives is okay.

A good day to not take contrary viewpoints or feelings of those around you too seriously. It’s okay!

This includes realizing there will always be emotional discrepancies within yourself, your truths and your actions.

The continual flow of your Divine Creativity and the machinations of the Monkey Mind can get in the way of the emotional needs in relationship, or can be a source of fun and spontaneity within relationship.

was grabbed by a macaque. This monkey took hundreds of shots,

legal controversy over the copyright status of the photos....'

1 Dog

[Today, three days after the Winter Solstice,
is the day – astronomically speaking –
when the Light of the Sun is reborn into the world
(we are, of course, talking about the currently-dominant
Northern Hemisphere).
For all those who celebrate this day in whatever way,
may it be Merry and Bright.]

Sambal, our new much-loved
semi-feral companion
 The Dog (Oc) Timewave begins today, with its themes of the emotional body, needs, emotional cravings, habits, patterning, love, companionship, boundaries and protections, feeling part of community, feeling connected to other beings and the question of belonging.

The Dog Timewave is all about those you love, those who share our journey; it also about giving and receiving guidance – and that includes to and from Spirit Guides.

Call upon your Spirit Guides to help you during this timewave.

The Dog is companionship in this world and the next; the Dog guides us over the threshold into the next life.

Who are your companions and where do you belong? A good time to be with others and to schedule in events with others, as you synchronize with the pack.

With this new 13-day timewave of companionship, relationship and guidance, ask yourself if you need a guide. Or, are you needed to be a guide? Be open to following a guide and/or to being a guide.

Ride the ebb and flow of emotions in this 13-day period, specifically in regard to relationships. Love the ones you love.

Territory: See your boundaries defined as the timewave unfolds.

In this timewave, you can potentially develop understanding of the rules, emotions, populations and inhabitants of different territories, both physical and multi-dimensional.

Who shares your path with you on this frequency of consciousness?

I love the way the 260-day Mayan Sacred Calendar changes direction. For example, the previous timewave (Earthmover) of ground-shaking evolution is followed by this emotionally based Dog Timewave.

13 Water (Moon)

Photo thanks to our friend and fabulous photographer André Eichman

A day to offer incense.

A day of gratitude and a day to surrender to the cleansing waters as they dissolve all blockages to the new sprouting energy that is already transforming your life.

The 13th day says ‘Let go and celebrate the end of the timewave.’

The dissipative consciousness cleanses the mind of thoughts.

Make an offering of gratitude for your life.

Note the offering of incense. Image from here.
The 2012 Era and the Message of 13 Water:
Evolution and transformation – which is the theme of this, the Earthmover Timewave – requires the dissolution of blocks in our perception concerning the immediate potential and imminent reality, so that we can emotionally accommodate the next new reality.

The next scale of consciousness is a far bigger environment of the psyche. This is the spiritual reason for acknowledging contentious issues, such as Atlantis, the UFO phenomena and other anomalous experience, research and testimony.

The soul is like water, but the mind compartmentalizes reality.

The boxing and filing of information into relevant and irrelevant trays has been necessary for ego development. Now, however, in this 2012 era, it is time to dissolve some of the filters.

Increasingly, it is not enough to just take a ‘spiritual perspective’, to meditate or to simply have a psychological or sociological viewpoint. Instead, we are being pressed to have a full integral perspective.

The next scale of reality is planetary, so we are being impulsed to start releasing our compartmental walls of mind, to open to the totality of experience that is co-existent here on Earth – the Immanence.

The species is now required to engage with the areas of reality that have been kept hidden, for the new landscape of the psyche exists on the other side of the Shadowlands that stands before us.

The jewels are hidden in the murky realms.

[Note from Carey: On previous 13 Water days, Laurence added a quote from José Argüelles (24 January 1939–23 March 2011), which resonates well with his own work and understanding. It is worth including this again today, especially as I noticed the coincidence of Jose´s passing on 23 March, exactly 6 years before Laurence, who left us on 24 March 2017:]

Time and again human consciousness fixates,
and slams the door on its greatest gift,
the open-endedness of infinite possibility.
As a result we do not experience reality but merely our concept of it
José Argüelles

12 Rabbit (Star)

Laurence in the Milky Way. Composite image created by me

Today, 12 Rabbit, is a day of coherent light and a day of clarity.

A good day to organize your consciousness. The diversity of your thinking, or the diversity of your emotions, or the diversity of your intentions can find some coherence today.

You have the opportunity to understand the new energy of this timewave that has transformed you in some manner. You have the opportunity today to integrate quite effortlessly.

Your thoughts – which may have been scattered – can coalesce naturally and effortlessly today.

The many radiant thoughts and emotions you have today can come together as a coherent understanding – if you tune into them all as products of light, for they are all emanating from you.

You are a ball of light, a star, a singular monad.

11 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

Feel the flow and hold lightly

The Tzolkin energy of today is a day of flow.

After yesterday’s solidity – possibly even harshness, for some – we get a contrasting texture today, one of plasticity and liquidity.

Have you noticed the textures of days? Time itself has a range of quality and texture and the Mayan Sacred Calendar enables this understanding.

Navigate the waves of energy with intuition and some reason, surrender and strength. The lightest of touches is needed – the impulse to seize an object or an idea too tightly needs to be restrained.

A portal opens up. A river appears that leads towards a transformed state, an evolved paradigm, a new sense of reality...

Surf the flow with balance and poise, without looking too far ahead to the promised land.

Keep a rein on the excitement and enjoy the flow. Feel the continuum that flows through us all, as things emerge and dissolve in the river of the seamless unity that is the immanence of life.

10 Skull

Winter Solstice today, 21 December, exact time 16:28 UT/GMT; just after midnight tonight Hong Kong time, at 00:28 on 22 December (11 Deer).
Bring on the Light! 


To create this image, I found 10 beautiful crystal skull images on Pinterest
(many of which originally came from, cut them all out
and placed them in Medicine Wheel formation
(the 8 Sacred Directions, plus Father Sky and Mother Earth in the centre,
or 'above' and 'below') on a background I created from several other layers.


A good day for no-nonsense practicality and letting go of that which is ready to be released.

Your life has changed. The 10th day of the Earthmover Timewave manifests as a change. You have let go of something and have regenerated; you are cutting away dead wood and unnecessary sentimentality and are ripe for newness. Even if you cannot understand it logically, you can sense it instinctively.

Today is a fundamental shift. Release that which needs to be released.

Today you can see and feel that something new has emerged within you – it will not necessarily be dramatic or spectacular, but you will be conscious that something new has gradually emerged.

See it and acknowledge it – and you will reinforce it. 

The Golden Skull.
Image from here

[ Personal note from Carey: One full spin of the Tzolkin ago (meaning 260 days, or one ‘year’ in the Mayan Sacred Calendar), on 10 Skull of 5 April 2017, we said farewell to the body of my beloved Laurence James Lucas, at a small, but very beautiful cremation ceremony in Hong Kong. We ‘let go of that which was ready to be released.’

Strangely, it was the first day we were able to book the crematorium – and it also happened to be one Mayan Sacred Calendar ‘month’ (a timewave, or what we might think of as a
‘month’ is 13 days) since his passing on 11 Jaguar.

As I wrote on that day, ‘If you read his blog post for today, you will see that it is in fact the perfect day for such a thing. I can’t believe that somehow Laurence didn't have a hand in the choice...’

And as Laurence wrote for contemplation on 10 Skull of 6 June, 2009: ‘If you are tuned into this radio station – which means Galactic Central as received from Earth – then you will experience a manifest change of state somewhere in your world today.

Ending and new beginnings from one thing to another, from black to white.’ ]

9 Serpent

 Here is Laurence, explaining the energies of today

The Earthmover Timewave offers us change. Day 9, which is ruled by the Serpent Daykeeper, suggests that we wake up to the end of one mini-cycle of activity or focus, and come back to the body, to survival issues and/or issues of personal power.

Today is a day to survive and flourish on the next level of reality. A day to awaken to your future upgrade and recalibration, as the environment of our reality continues to change.

Today you feel a power surge, a sense of your passion. Today you are conscious of the life force – sexuality, power and survival – all of which are powered by the life force. The kundalini life force in your body is your personal instinctive power that is derived from the species’ will; it is the impulse to survive and to evolve.

Kundalini rising. Original image from Google,
enhanced by LjL using computer software
Serpents are highly adaptable. So is the life force, which is instinctively driven to solve the paradox of survival versus security (the latter being opposed to change).

9 days bring the awareness of large cycles of time and with it the connection to that which is seeking completion and that which is complete.


You are impulsed today to do what is necessary for your survival and will feel a sense of passion for life. Complete something and see what is seeking completion.

What would empower you, if you work towards it? Where are you ready to change? What skin can you shed? What are you working towards?

Kundalini rising, from Pinterest
Just feel those drives; do not get stuck in the head. You do not need to think about it all, nor work it all out through analysis.

You will be called to action. An impulse from the body will activate your actions with some urgency.

You might become aware that a thread of time has ended as the result of your activities, so be here now in the body.

The nexus of eternity converges into the instinct that arises in each moment through your life force. The life force is not merely yours, but is one head of the thousand-headed Cosmic Serpent that keeps life alive and flourishing. Your simple but inspired action now affects the future.

Follow the call to immediate action.

8 Lizard (Seed)

Blue Swirl by Meggymoo71 from Deviant Art

LjL invites us to spin
Today holds the image of a compressed vortical tunnel...

Day 8 is a day of commitment. You planted seeds in the last timewave — some of them now need watering and attention. An intention started might need more of your engagement.

An 8 day is always a day of compression of the non-locality consciousness of your spirit into time and space.

This is a not the full manifestation of your divinity; it is not full embodiment, nor compression into full density. But compression, nonetheless, for the free-roaming essence of your being.

Enjoy the sense of bringing your Master Intention closer to manifestation. Feel the squeeze and breathe into it. Relax and trust as potentialities narrow in exchange for actualizing potential. 

Movement, specifically spin, is fundamental to existence; celebrate the dynamic movement of life that maintains enduring structures of experience due to the consciousness, the intelligence and the intent that pervades creation.

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

[New Moon today: 6.30am UT/GMT; 14.30 HK time]

Laurence in the hills of Lamma. Photo thanks to our friend André Eichman.

Between the worlds; a still point between the past and the changes to come.

The pre-requisite for transformation – for fundamental change – is the ability to look into the shadow and to see the positive aspects that are hidden in the darkness and the negativity.

Today, there might seem to be a disconnection, a discordance or a point where things do not quite come together; something strange, disjointed or dislocated.

It is not an error. Be mindful of the gap and move into the gap. Do not be afraid of any disturbing feelings. Feel the comforting feeling that exists in the space where reality has ripped. Tune into the surreal quality of the day and find the enjoyment inherent within it.

Today is the day where we welcome in the alchemical soil for change. This might mean a resonant encounter with the shadow of your inner life and the gems hidden within the darkness. Notice your gems.

[On 7 Foredawn of 30 Oct 2015, Laurence added a link to an article on Phys.Org about Earth’s magnetic field, with the words:]
'Slowly but surely, there is an increasing understanding of our connection to the cosmos – think space weather, cosmic influx and the energy field environment.'

6 Wind

 Lamma Winds. Another of my composite image attempts.
(There is currently really only one on our island, not yet six!)

Receiving, conveying, moving, linking, forming.

Follow the flow of communication. Jump from one thing to another, never settling too long in one place or on one bit of information, but just long enough to be stimulated by the message.

The power of Wind is controlled nicely on Day 6. A good day to present a powerful and provocative idea in a cohesive and concise manner.

Maybe speak the truth...

5 Crocodile

Laurence, being peaceful and receiving the nourishment of life,
in the Tropical Spice Gardens, Penang, Malaysia in August 2009

Look all around you, be at peace and accept it all. Recognize the nourishment that life is offering.

Today, 5 Crocodile is a day of beingness, of nurturing yourself by sitting in the centre of your world and accepting all that surrounds you.

You are a divine being, but nobody exists in isolation. Everybody has a diverse range of needs and all those needs can potentially be met. Just enjoy the way that life sustains itself and offers sustenance in all new situations.

The Goddess is forever feeding reality.

Even with change and disruption, life is sustainable.

A good day to feel at peace and to have a moment of exuberance as you let go of fear.

The day is quiet. Can you be?

4 Flower (Sun, Lord)

Pacal Troll, presiding over our Medicine Wheel, 
on the roof terrace of our Enchantments Centre, on Lamma Island.

Today is the day that teaches us to be in our sovereign psychic space, protected by the confidence that comes from our divine selves.

A day of self-establishment.

You are what you are. No apology needed.

Today – 4 Ahau (Flower, Sun or Lord) – is a day which tells us that change requires a foundation of confidence, based on recognizing that you are a divine being of light.

Every person is divine and every person, if conscious of that, should rightly be confident and glowing.

There can be a fine line between confidence and arrogance or ego inflation, but today err on the side of confidence.

Your sovereign power is found when you celebrate life. Pay homage to all that is beautiful and beatific; by so doing, you are beauty and you are divine.

Today, claim your sovereign spiritual power for yourself. We need you to do this now, more than ever.

Laurence paying homage to all that is beautiful and beatific.
Huge thanks to André Eichman for the wonderful photograph.

[More from Laurence to contemplate on 4 Flower:]
Tune into the fact that this is the same day in the Mayan Sacred Calendar as it was on 21 December 2012,* so that we can connect to another octave of the 2012 influx.

As in Western astrology, the Mayan astrology we use here is a fractal system, which means that today, 4 Flower, is in resonance with the Maya end date of 20:12, which signified the end of a chapter in the evolution of the human species, and the beginning of a fundamental transformation.

Today, you have the opportunity today to glean personal and direct inspiration about the nature of change and how you can best navigate it in this transformational era.

Setting the Parameters of Change
A day where you can potentially feel the different boundaries in your energy field – the boundaries and space you now exist within, as well as the extended boundaries of your realizable potentiality.

Image ©
On 4 Flower of 15 February 2010, I experienced this in the hills of Lamma, looking out over the sea, as I was suddenly aware of my personal space, the living space around me and the living space I walk around in.

Today, be aware of who you are, without sentiment, and then feel into the potential energy that lies just beyond your present state.

 You are changing and evolving. Set the scene for your unfoldment as you will step into a larger space and a larger expression, perception and experience of life.

The expansion of your reality will involve an expansion of membership and an identification with yourself as being part of or belonging to more of the human species. Growth creates a greater affinity with more of life.

Today, become conscious of your energy spaces and the different scales of environment within which you have your being.


[* Note from Carey: In calendrical terms, 21 December 2012 was the end of the then-current ‘Great Cycle’ of the Mayan Long Count Calendar, which comprises 13 periods of time, each called a baktun, covering a total period of approximately 5,125 years in the Gregorian calendar.]

 Lamma kites, thanks to the fabulous bird photographer Katherine Forestier

[A personal message from Laurence, posted on 21 December 2012:]
My day started many hours ago with a greeting to the dawn. I was met with a spectacular display as four kites, our local birds of prey, rolled and clustered around each other in the sky, directly in the east, four hundred yards in front of me.

Then one flew back to me and, facing east with me, hovered about 12 feet in the air and 20 feet away from my right shoulder. Together we greeted the dawn of a new day.
