Today’s energy is a waveform of fluctuation between gently holding, but not quite grasping, then releasing, but never fully letting go. There is no point of stasis within the relaxation or the holding moment on a 3 Deer day.

Feel how the instinct of survival and the necessity of keeping control of structures within your life ebbs and flows. A good day to exercise the muscle of the psyche that stays engaged with life, yet with an element of detachment.
Let go of absolutes and remain responsive; feel the flow and stay attentive to the surging changes of direction of your mental, emotional and physical energy.

Timeline Changes and Choices
The world always changes through the initial efforts of a few people.
Most, if not all, cultural movements start with an individual, and then a handful of people who congregate around a vision, sitting together in a café, in a bar or under a tree...
It is time to feel into your benevolent vision for humanity. We are at a threshold; our abundance as a species has never been higher. I drum on about this all of the time, and will continue to do so – the greatest resource we have is human ingenuity and a high population increases specialization and innovation. That innovation needs to be unleashed and allowed to flourish.
The resources and environmental problems we face are systemic of the global systems that are in place and which are holding us back.
The solution is for individuals to envisage the obvious potentials that are present and to go way beyond the impoverished perspective of the mainstream culture, as well as, I have to say, a lot of the secular environmental movement.
Your psychic vision, your ability to conceive and imagine a better world, is imperative. Do not think you do not count.
The vision you hold feeds the sphere of the emerging planetary consciousness.

To me, it is obvious that our relationship with time–space has fundamentally changed during this 2012 era.
The definitions of time and space create the context of our consciousness by creating a timeframe, a landscape.
Here is a very interesting and useful article that explores some of the issues of time:
Why Time Slows Down When We’re Afraid, Speeds Up as We Age, and Gets Warped on Vacation
Today, 3 Deer, make the emotional effort to engage with yourself and with others in the area of emotional exchange. Go back, review, recapitulate to change tack, change scripts and change timelines – as there are no doors open to this old timeline. Stay responsive.
