4 Skull

Do stuff that needs to be done. This is a foundation day for sudden change at some point in the future.

Secure the space, with a bit of repair, maintenance and mundane tasks of preparation.

To create a fertile space, as we are doing in this timewave (Foredawn), requires you to create some walls around the space. Set some parameters today – shape your boundaries, find the edges, define the separations. Schedule some things in order to create empty moments.

Today is a good day for internal clarity, a clear unsentimental acceptance and perspective on your old self. As ever on Skull days, cut to the bone where it is appropriate. Set boundaries.

A great day for laying pristine foundations in your psyche.

A good day to be real, as they say, which means to temporarily cut out conjecture and sentiment – not for all time, but certainly for today. Enjoy a sense of freedom from your wants and separate the chaff from the wheat.

With shamanism, most people want the fireworks, the big experience, and can see the preparation as boring. However, once you start to see the results of good preparation, you become more wiling to do the little things, the mundane cleansing and the small and simple evocations.

Laurence on the beach in California, 2008.
He was always able to create those vital empty moments for himself,
whatever else was going on,
and always took the time to prepare for his shamanic and other work/play
carefully, comprehensively and joyfully.
