|The World of Crow, by LjL|
Commit to your shamanic instincts today as an integral part of navigating the world we live in. It is all too easy to get swept along with the technological perspective on life and to devalue the foundation of material existence (the body) as product of the natural world.
Stay alert and call upon Earth Magic, for you are a warrior protector of this vital, beautiful and precious planet and we need you in your power.
|'We need you in your power'|
Navigating reality requires the ability to face and accept the Shadow — both within yourself and within your friends, your family, your lover and the mother of all scary shadows of the World we live in — without getting lost in the admittedly undeniable darkness and seeing it as all there is.
The Light is stronger and the shaman within you knows this instinctively.
The Galactic Awakening of the 2012 era requires this level of commitment from an increasing number of us.
What we need is humour and acceptance, as well as openness of mind and a radical playful spirit in a world of relative truth, dark powerful agendas and social confusion. The Dark Game is a smaller context than the Light of Creation, which infuses our everyday lives.
Commit to playing in the game of duality whilst connecting to the unity through your body intelligence. Get out into nature if you can.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 8 Jaguar, first posted on 9 March 2016, during the Piscean Eclipse, but still relevant today]
The Eclipse has begun and the fog-shroud of energy is tangible and visible. A dissolute feeling is present. I am off to the hills for the eclipse...
I walked to my favourite spot and, as usual, just before the eclipse the energy was quite disorientating, perhaps especially with this one as I found it hard to evoke structurally. However, I got the point of connection almost exactly at the pinnacle of the eclipse and new moon (3 minutes or so before). The clouds opened and a shaft of sunlight burst through the fog. I then felt a sense of calm, and after 5 minutes I lay down and fell asleep, for a few minutes only.
I had a dream, again very simple, which explained that it does not matter what people worship or call their god – they are all just symbols or representations of the ultimate divinity.
Nothing earth-shattering in itself, but I think it shows how the eclipse is manifesting. The general sense was that the eclipse was about the totality of life. My mind was trying to grasp onto things and seek inspirations, as it does, but there was nothing to hold onto in a smaller sense – it was about the essence and the conduit we use to connect to an enormity that is too large to grasp, yet ever present.
I stand by my work that suggests we as a species are being challenged to re-vision the meta-myth of society and I would add that is through our own intimate inquiry.
Application and action might best be achieved by persevering and mastering a specific area – your niche area of interest or vocation – whilst recognizing that a more expansive heritage is also available for you to draw upon.
Detach from the precepts, foundational conditioning, assumptions, commandments and ‘givens’ that you may have learnt, and look to connect to a much larger potential. Draw upon divinity to show you a new way forward in your work.
One step at a time...
There is a collective theme of loss of faith* and so we need to re-establish a faith that does not rely upon our old gods, old authorities or old heroes (obviously this encompasses all of the mainstream authority figures).
In your creative endeavours, this will open the door to innovation and will enable you to draw upon inspiration from a paradigm outside your niche interest in order to re-vision your approach.
I am talking in a general sense of course, but the specific effect for you will depend upon the transits to your own astrological chart.
* This was particularly relevant in March 2016, with Jupiter in a close opposite to Chiron, but still valid today.

Note from Carey: Laurence wrote many articles about the timeline choice we are facing, much of which he posted on his Mystic Cyber Crow blogsite, up to and including a matter of weeks before his passing. Mystic Cyber Crow was the blogsite perhaps particularly closest to Laurence’s heart, where he could write about and share much of his inspiration, theories, musings and insights. Many articles are ‘unedited’, in the sense that Laurence wrote in a stream of consciousness as soon as he was inspired or impelled to put his incredible thinking and feeling down in words.
This was his mission, to share his wisdom, experience, knowledge, and profound understanding of life.
