1 Eagle

This fabulous image was created for us by Kit Yeung,
Hong Kong photographer and artist, as the main image for
Laurence's new 8-part Shamanic Training course, called 'Planetary Walker',
which we were due to launch in March 2017.
Thank you Kit! (

The Eagle is of the sky, surveying and scanning the world and able to see the abundance of the world as it hunts for the specific abundance available to it. The Eagle can see the micro-reality below, as it hones in on what is available and appropriate.

Scan your environment today and then place your focus on that which is specifically useful for you right now.

Image from here
A 13-day ripple in time starts today with the Eagle Timewave (known as Men to the Maya), where the consciousness of the World Mind and its vision can make itself seen through you. 

Open your heart and imagination without undue sentiment to receive the vision from the Eagle.


What is it that the Spirit of the World sees? Can we see it?

Yes, it is the existential joy of Life, enjoying its own simple existence. The World Mind is Immanent.

Meditation will often take you beyond the world into the transcendental zone, but the Immanence is here and now, inherently within your physical pleasures and your struggles, as an expansive consciousness that helps you appreciate your life as an art form.

Now is a good time to get a feeling-sense of your personal vision for your life, or for your life as it stands right now, or for your life to come in an immediate sense. Trust the intuitive and the imaginary faculties; allow yourself to validate your gnosis.

Eagle sees a world of abundance.

13 Jaguar

This was one of Laurence's favourite of his artworks,
which he called 'Bladerunner'.

The ever-present wildlife force enriches this day as the atmosphere is quietly crackling with cat-like anticipation, while the air seethes with mysterious, brooding, feminine intelligence, stalking us and reminding us that life is alive and not just an idea in our heads.

From Google images
The Wind God can be an angry god and on this day, being the last day of his timewave, he disperses his energy – maybe through anger to clear the air, either verbally or through dramatic thunder and lightning storms.


Alternatively, the Wind God activates your connection and your awareness of the unlimited nature of reality. The truth is that existence is not only stranger and more extraordinary than we imagine, it is far more incredibly unlimited than we could ever imagine.

However, we have to work with and within useful limits.

So what is the net result of what we can work with? On one hand, there are no limits within the bounds of existence – and yet we experience very real limitations in our own lives...

The sum total of this energetic equation for today allows us to release some of our limitations.

A good day to align with your shamanic instinct, to blow off outworn thought forms and to release some of the unnecessary limitation that has been placed upon your life.

I found this fabulous Shamanic Jaguar image here

A powerful day for the raw power of nature. The timewave of information and communication dissolves the headspace you may have been in as the wild free natural world calls to you.

Day 13 allows us to access the eternal now and, on Jaguar Day, that comes from direct connection with the natural spirit of the world. So today is a great day just to BE in nature, especially to be still, sitting down and feeling the energy.

Allow the energy of today to flow through you and disperse that which is ready to be dispersed.

12 Reed (Skywalker)

Nature Intelligence by LjL

A day of great clarity in areas of complexity. You see your life with real detachment, from above. With this, a profound understanding is possible. The mind is aligned with higher, complex ordered intelligence.

Surrendering to the intelligence above, you receive that intelligence so as to formulate new patterns and new understandings, and to bring divine intelligence into the body, into the Earth.

Be an Earth conduit for the Sky and the Stars.

 'Silhouettes' by Harry Finder, via Imgur

You can resolve some difficult paradoxes today. If you have been struggling with a situation that is full of polarized, conflicting and confusing dilemmas, then you may well find that by tuning in, you can see a larger pattern, a more complete truth that allows for discordancy within a larger dynamic harmony.

Today, you are able to organize your thoughts for effective communication, and/or you really understand the complex pattern of communication. This could mean gaining awareness of a specific exchange you have had with someone recently, or being able to discern the general communication dynamic you have with people.

11 Good Road (Human, Grass)

Rocks in the hills of Lamma at a place Laurence called 'Abundance Portal',
where he would sit and enjoy the view over the Lamma Channel to Hong Kong Island,
reading the signs in the paths and listening to the messages

A good day to listen and to be open, whilst not letting yourself get pulled too far. Apply yourself in an adaptive manner – activities that involve making adjustments are favoured. 

Abundance is being offered; new potentials could open up. Be alert enough to read the signs and hear the messages.

Lateral paths open up, but be conscious of not getting lost in a myriad of the inconsequential.

Have an empty mind, but do not be an airhead.

 Utilize the energy that comes towards you.

The path opens up before you. Do you stay on course, or do you get distracted? Feel into it. 

If the path is taking you into the wilderness, see it as a distraction. Change direction a little.

Be conscious and sensitive of the options in your life, as small things grow into big things from this moment. Take a moment to see what small adjustments are needed.

Make an adjustment, but do not throw everything away and start again.

10 Monkey

Monkey image from one of my photographs,
which I had fun with on Photoshop

10 Monkey is the ‘manifestation day’ of this, the Wind, timewave. The Monkey is an artisan, a creator of the tapestry of reality, sculpting reality from thought forms, ideas and perspectives.

This is a great day for finding creative connections between different ideas and paradigms.

Monkey also knows that information has limited value because Monkey is the one who plays with all ideas, all threads, to create the illusion of form. Monkey teaches us to laugh at ourselves, especially if we take anything to be absolute gospel, be that science or spiritual philosophy.

Laurence, always able to laugh at himself
and at the absurdity of the world

So give it up a little today. Enjoy music and art and the wonderful absurdity of the world. Enjoy creative thinking, writing, electronic communication and conversation; be entertaining, rather than coldly factual. Have fun with ideas.

Today is also a good day to explore your inner world through fantasy. The creative innovator is someone who is constantly open to moving laterally, to surrendering to the fallow periods, and to allowing the cosmic intelligence to speak to them and through them.

The world is hungry for and ready for fundamental innovations, not just superficial novelty. Be ready.

A brilliant day to create a poetic witty composition.

Work is play, play is work.

and where in this photo he was enjoying deep conversation
and the exchange of ideas with his good friend Dom.

9 Dog

Chocolate the dog, photo thanks to my sister Caroline

9 Days give us access to a larger timeframe and today, being a Dog Day, you can connect to the meta-narrative of your emotional scripts; you can feel the enduring emotional pattern that runs through your life.

This is a great day for emotional lucidity. Be sure to take time off from busy-ness. Also a good day for consciously reaching, communicating and really connecting with people who are in resonance with you.

A good day to get in touch with the deepest needs we have, linked to being conscious of the nourishment that life just gives us automatically.

A day of clear conscious communication that is emotionally connected as you awaken the soul’s memory of who you are in relation to society, and as you evoke the soul in your emotional body.

Today you can feel how life reaches out to you. You are not alone. There are special people in your life and life itself is sharing your journey with you.
From Google images

Open to a higher perspective on your mood and your emotions. Feel into the simplicity of love, rather than the imperfections of your experience with others.

Alternatively, just be with yourself. Enjoy stopping, being still, being on holiday, feeling slack. Go to sit in nature, stare at an old brick wall, whatever it takes to just relax without trying.

The world is so driven by an economic imperative these days that it seems hard to consciously go slack and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the world without necessity. We need peace in this world, which first requires permission to not be actively concerned with survival. 

Nature is not just about survival – actually far from it. The insects, birds and animals naturally, unthinkingly express the joy of existence through their sounds and actions.

The drone of the ‘necessity mind’, as well as guilt, blocks out the ever-present inherent message that life, at its foundation and throughout its development, is good.

Hippies and ‘slackers’ get a bad press, but if we have more conscious slackers in the world, enjoying the bliss and appreciation of what exists, then we could have peace. 

The conscious slacker scares the hell out of the control freaks of governance – the revolution will be a walk out.

To change the world, we must first be able to get off the hamster wheel of necessity more often.

 Dog rules boundaries, as dogs are territorial, and therefore Dog rules all kinds of law, including social boundaries. Today is a good day to understand your emotional boundaries based on your emotional scripts. This then brings up deep questions regarding the laws you adhere to: What laws or rules are appropriate?

Wake up to the nourishment you really need and feel the ever-present joy of existence, by setting appropriate boundaries, creating structures and setting limitations that are in accord with your true needs.

8 Water (Moon)

Another version of our holosphere image,
created by Kookie Birjukov and based on a concept by LjL,
for use in our Enchantments of Life workshops and course booklets.

Commit to soulfulness and connect to your inner life.

Give thanks for the contrasts in your experiences and your feelings, for this creates the beauty of who you are.

Living with the richness of soul sometimes means accepting the existential bleakness of life, as well as the bliss.

Thanks to Annie Knibb
The sum total of life is a quiet joy, a growing sense of awe and appreciation for life itself, free from too many expectations or demands. 

This in turn opens your heart to another, without too much sentiment or need.

Today, commit to your depth and your own profound feelings. Recognize the validity of your life experience.


Allow your feelings to flow to clear any blocks in your energy. This will enable you to implement your truth.

7 Rabbit (Star)

Joy, by Laurence James Lucas.
This painting spoke to him of the vibrancy of sexual women

Sparkling with radiant connection, you flit from here to there, spreading the love – or at least some abundant and fecund creative ideas. A sparkly day, a resonant day, meaning a day that mirrors the totality of existence.

Sparkly fractal by Mo Barton,
image found on Pinterest,
but originally from here
Today is a fractal of the cosmic light of creation. Enjoy the abundance of today – the natural inherent abundance – without too much expenditure. You do not need to get carried away with money, partying too hard, or any kind of excess. 

Be in the abundance by allowing the light to shine through you.

However, there is a shadow. Rabbit is associated with the drunkenness of Venus, as well the beauty, fertility and love. The shadow is the attraction to everything, the allure of the excitement of this, that and the other, which can be superficial – or worse.

The great problem is that if we get disconnected, the feeling that can arise is that everything is sour or unsatisfying, as the mind and the heart are constantly distracted. Energy might feel scattered today, which can be disconcerting, if you try to control it. So remember to retain your centre today; just be the radiant light.

However, we do not need to overemphasize the shadow, for today truly is magical.

6 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

Turning the Wheel, by Laurence James Lucas

Today has an organic flow about it. A good day to surf, holding and releasing as you move through the data stream.

A day of finesse and subtle responsiveness. Stay tuned; alert yet relaxed. Move and be alert to the moment when it is time to hold your attention steady.

A good day for concentration as you are able to control yourself, setting limits whilst sensing the organic flow of energy, enabling you to switch your attention to the next appropriate activity.

Surges of euphoria can arise today. Allow them through, but without grasping onto them.

A great day for relating to people as your communication is responsive, fresh, eloquent and interesting.

5 Skull

Original photo thanks to Annie Knibb.
I added the skull and gave this a new background

Today is a day of strength, realism and positive detachment that allows you to make changes where necessary and/or operate in the more visceral realms of material reality.

Cut back, detach from the crowd, come back to your core, and be a little cynical if necessary.

Or: Be at the centre of your group and be detached enough to be a facilitator for your community.

Enjoy some backbone attitude.

Use crystals to create a resonance with the information carried within your bones.

A good day for clarity when dealing with information.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 5 Skull:]
I would like to add some more to 5 Skull, which to some degree is applicable to all Skull Days.

5 Skull is a good day to observe yourself interacting with the superficial, the bare-bones material frequency of ego, money, shiny metal toys, the instant comforts and the allure of even the most banal of what the world has to offer.

Skull Days allow us to have a compartmentalized experience. For someone who is spiritually awake, the observer can be present as you take part in the glossy impermanence of the surface.

Occasional full-blown indulgence can release the heaviness and self-importance of the super-ego – the inner priest, as it were – thereby enabling a subsequent deeper connection to the profundity of the ground of consciousness.

4 Serpent

on Lamma Island

Own Your Self-Interest
We need you to survive and to be healthy. Listen to the survival instinct today as the foundation for your own power.

Respect your power to influence the world through the natural transmission of your consciousness; respect it and harness the vitality of your body. Be grounded in the body.

In the Wind Timewave, your role as a communicator and disseminator requires you first to be firmly planted in the seat of your own life force.

From Pinterest
Put your roots down into the Earth, through the ‘souls’ of your feet.

To be effective, remember: Exercise, sleep, get proper rest and nutrition, and yet also desire and honour your power impulses, whilst respecting the personal limitations that are required to contain the excesses of that power impulse.

The ego should not be crushed, rather it should be harnessed.

Today make sure you give yourself the physical foundation for confidence.

3 Lizard (Seed)

'Behind the Scenes (aka The Ancestors)', by LjL.
He explained this painting as being about the Keepers of Templates.

A good day to examine our agreements with life and our intentions. 

Lizards work on the template level of reality, exploring the dream realms to unearth the intelligent essence that underpins reality. Lizards are connected to the fullness of the latent abundance and the interconnectedness of all things; they gather up everything in their awareness in order to understand the Seed of Life.

Lizards are associated with preparation and the underlying patterns.

It through the agreements we make, often unconsciously, that our Enchanting experience is evoked. We create our reality within the context of the collective construction, the collective agreements.*

The Ever-Changing Platform of Your Life
You have an essential destiny to become conscious of, but the details of that destiny are not all worked out – life is dynamic. You have a template for this incarnation, but it is not set in stone.

Today, see the shifting intentionality within existence that is created by forces of consciousness larger than ourselves. Enjoy the vitalizing force of an intelligence so vast we cannot grasp it, but which has the interests of our life within its knowing.

Your personal intention and your choices for your life exist within a dynamic framework.

Today be open to the idea of new intentions and new agreements. It is not necessary to set absolute intentions, just witness the flux of energy within you that relates to what you desire and what you would like to experience.

[* Note from Carey: Laurence called these collective agreements the Enchantments of Life, see here for more on his map of the evolution of human consciousness].

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

In the Heart of the Forest, by LjL

Be at home today in between the polarities and between spaces.  

The existential nature of life is sometimes (a time like today, for example) a comforting place in which to surrender, so that we are deeply at home in the midst of eternity.

After yesterday’s activation of 1 Wind comes the space, the silence and the void. Feel the pull of opposites and live betwixt them.

A good day for intense contemplative feeling and for finding the crack, in any form, that lets in the light.

Today is Foredawn, Dark House, In the House, Dark Night. It is the space before sunrise; it is a day that evokes an opening in the heart, a sense of the romantic. But it can draw you into darkness, as it is seductive…

Today we are seduced by the mystery. Without letting the mind draw too many conclusions, feel into things but set boundaries – and do not let yourself get drawn too far into anything dark.

Draw upon your imagination to investigate the potentials of what you are working on or desiring for your life. Feel the space that you are creating for that which is manifesting.

This can also be taken quite literally to include physical space, including how to create an ambience, perhaps with two contrasting colours and a third subtle colour. The physical interiors – our living spaces – reflect and evoke our psychic space. The clever use of colour can keep a space alive so that energy can enter in between the contrasts.

1 Wind

Bliss, by Laurence James Lucas

[New Moon tonight, exact time 21:05 UTC/GMT; tomorrow, Friday 16 Feb, 05:05 HK time, which is also Lunar New Year's Day in the Year of the Dog. We also have a partial eclipse of the Sun.]

Get ready for a new 13-day timewave that begins today as the Wind (Ik) archetype activates.

The Wind God brings fast decisions and clarity of mind, and activates your quick responses to all things.

The next 13 days can bring you clarity about what you have to say to the world, or clear communications with loved ones.

Wind God Stribog, image from here
The Breath of the Divine will send you a message today – a sudden noise, an angry word, a disembodied spirit whispering in your ear, a gust of wind or a vibration from an animal. Any of these can activate you. Wind activates without sentiment; Wind asks us to be detached.

The Wind can polarize an issue to push you further. Sometimes we have to see the world in black and white before we can proceed.

A timewave of powerful messaging, twittering, phoning, emailing and the spoken word. Be a messenger and a receiver with a ‘Yes, let’s do it!’ attitude.

Alternatively, your communication exchange might be solely with the Source or your with own subconscious.

You are a transmitter and a receiver.

[Personal extra message from Laurence posted on 1 Wind of 21 Feb 2013:]
My morning practice seemed very clear, despite having had wine and a meal out last night. A powerful Chinese spirit (it was suggested I was in the presence of a Master) visited me during my meditation.

Of course I will investigate this presence, rather than unconditionally accepting him – and it was a ‘him’. But the feeling was extremely peaceful, warm and powerful. The spirit certainly evoked the Wind Spirit resonance. With this type of energy, we have to learn to recognize it, but not embellish it with emotional projection. 

Remember: Wind asks us to be detached.

13 Crocodile

LjL and his Goddess painting, which he called 'The holiest of holies'.
Photo thanks to Lamma Gung, from a gallery of Laurence's work on

A crocodile smiles at her baby
From here
13 Crocodile is a powerful day.

The principle of 13 is movement in all directions. We have 13 major articulations in the body – imagine them all being used simultaneously! You would have a mad dance that would release your psychic energy.

Today, being a 13 Day, is the release of the timewave energy, a day of letting go and opening up, a spiralling out of the feeling and consciousness of the last 12 days. The soulful signature of the Muluc Timewave (Water or Moon) is powerful and yet dissolving today.

Goddess (aka Venus)
of Willendorf

Crocodile is the primal and also watery state of base consciousness – undifferentiated, engulfed in the Goddess, irrational, filled with chaotic latency and stirring turbulence, ready to birth...

Surrender to life today and it should treat you well. 

The Cosmic Mother force: ‘Strong it is.’

The soul’s need for nourishment is revealed to you today. Your soul, and the souls of those around you, have a heightened sense of the need to be fed with more primal connection and with the ineffable universal love and nourishment.

The Water or Moon Timewave ends today with this great release and surrender.
