Today, 8 Crocodile, make the commitment to move into accepting who you are and feeling the nourishment that life is looking to give to you.
Nurture yourself and others. Be patient with your desire to renew your life; set a deep resolve for change that recognizes and acknowledges the reality of how ingrained your habits are.
Activities that emphasize sustenance and maintenance are in accord with the Mayan energy of the day. Practical activities that support the nourishment of your life are highlighted. Keep your life going, and feel the viscous emergence of that which is emerging.
A day of commitment to essential acceptance and trust.

Being the Mystery
Crocodile is also the primal force that gives birth to all things. What new undifferentiated essence has been born in you? The birth of energy today is one of appreciation, lovingness, protection and care, rather than a surge forward with any goal-orientated project.
Whatever you are doing, simply appreciate the juice of life and sustain life with a sense of the slow, forward movement that emerges from the depth of your primal roots.
Feel into the mystery and recognize the ongoing emanation that springs from the Goddess.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 8 Crocodile:]
One of the myths of the new age is that to heal ourselves means to rid ourselves of our stuff.
I suggest ‘healing’ actually means acceptance, accepting all the levels of one’s being. You were a child and now you have an inner child – I don’t care if you are a world leader, a guru, a political journalist or a hard-nosed scientist, that brat and/or little sweetie still lives within.
The healing is the acceptance, which then allows us to gain some detachment from the lower levels of our psyche. We do not need to be ruled by those lower levels, but we can acknowledge and accept them.
