3 Dog

[Friday 30 November 2018]

 The emotional body is energised today. And doesn’t it feel good?

Today is a day for dynamic exchange and social activity. A day of energising, emotive communication. This is a great day to be with people and to enjoy their company, for it is through others that we feel the real abundance of life.

Created by Carey, using a base image found on Google

And/or: A day of feeling nurtured by the abundance of life all around you and the opportunities in front of you.

And/or: A day of new emotional energy as you refresh your feeling for life or feel inspired, yet somewhat unsettled.

Receive and accept the energy; recognise that today is invigorating a part of your life.

2 Water (Moon)

[Thursday 29 November 2018]

A day of two atmospheres, two feelings and the contrast of two environments and how they complement, conflict or converge with each other.

Created by Carey

Day 2 of each timewave reveals the inherent duality and challenge within the whole timewave. With Rabbit Timewave, we ask ‘Where is the substance behind the abundance?’

The answer is within the soul, within relationship.

2 Water (also called Moon) asks us to feel into the multitude of objects, people, ideas and energies and to recognise their energetic signatures:

  • Is each emergence in resonance with our soul state? 
  • Is it abundant, or is it pulling us in the wrong direction? 
  • Are we dissolving our soul in the welter of abundance, or are we expanding our field of consciousness?

Image from here

We live with the duality of our desires and the duality within all action, intent and thought. There is an abundance of things in this beautiful world to entertain us, to study, to act upon or to long for, but they do come with the inevitable cost of an energetic clash created within us.

We could call this karma, the shadow of all agency, or more accurately, our unconsciousness of the totality of any action.

There is no escaping it, unless you choose the transcendental path. Excitement breeds anxiety; bliss breeds deflation and inertia; and even joy can breed depression, if we chase it.

Today is a good day to clear your energy field, to burn incense, to ask for forgiveness from life, to forgive life and to give thanks for your life as it is.

Accept the duality of agency and release yourself from struggle today.

1 Rabbit (Star)

[Wednesday 28 November 2018]

Your World Shines
The last timewave ended yesterday with a vision, or an opening of the energy field to a larger sense of reality. Day 13 of each timewave always opens up into the next timewave.

One of the composite images I put together for use in our
Enchantments of Life course materials and handbooks.
For more on the Enchantments of Life,
please go to LjL's portal website, in particular this page, as well as its sub-pages

Today, 1 Rabbit, sees the start of a new mini-cycle – 13 days of abundance; 13 days that are fertile, creative, playful and beautiful. The Rabbit Timewave (also known as Star, or Lamat to the Maya) is about the multiplication in all directions of all things.

This new timewave brings light and vitality; it is fun, it can be superficial and even slightly silly, and of course it can be overwhelming – but it radiates a joyful luminescence that originates within your Cosmic Heart.

Stay conscious within the radiant explosion. Enjoy it, but do not completely acquiesce, agree or invest all of your energy in everything that comes along.

Remember: Anything can be alluring, but do not be seduced by everything that tempts you. Do not spend all of your energy reserves.

Instead, enjoy the luminosity and step into the abundance and vitality.

[Extra message from Laurence for contemplation on 1 Rabbit:]
How does life expand? How does light radiate? How is the cosmos expanding?

Radially, holographically, fractally – with implosions and new radial emanations embedded within a larger expansion.

Image by Rauliten on Deviantart

To connect to the radiance and beauty that Rabbit evokes, we have to look beyond the ‘false light’.

The false light is very strong in the world now; it is the pretension of light that is created by the dark agents who seek to control the Earth. These are interdimensional beings who work through their terrestrial agents, and who will be selling their agenda hard, wrapped in soft reassuring words.

The false light is most apparent within the naïve elements of celebrity; the hidden elements of religion, finance and politics; and the saccharine changelings who seek to cajole the spiritually minded into inertia.

Now, more than ever, it is important to look beyond the glossy image.

Image by Timothy Vincent on Deviantart

The 2012 effect* – the evolutionary creative challenge of our times – is well and truly under way. A very wide spectrum of potentiality currently exits in the flux state of our world and we are being asked to be far more conscious of a far larger diversity of frequencies than ever before.

So, look to connect to the radiance from natural environments in order to connect to the positive elements of Rabbit.

The Rabbit Hole by j14v6 on Deviantart

* Laurence suggested that the 2012 effect began in the 1990s and will last well into the 2020s.

13 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

Shamanic Substance by Laurence James Lucas

A day where you feel some elation. Feel the bliss of releasing an enduring block and, in so doing, re-grasp something from your past that you reluctantly thought you had to surrender forever.

Or: Release your grasp and be ready to hold something far bigger, perhaps a larger concept of life or understanding. But do not grasp it tightly; be silent with it and receive it.

Descent of the Sun by Vladimir Kush
Image from Pinterest, but here is the website of this amazing artist

The last day of the Eagle Timewave gives us the opportunity to glimpse a much larger vision of our life – if we can let go of at least some of our old imaginings, mental constructs and subconscious projections about our future.

Let go of some old security to welcome more plenitude into your life, the plenitude that comes from grace and openness. Let go, give it up, release old imaginings and visions, relax the mind and open up wide.

Release, let go and then discern where it is you re-grasp and regain control.

The timewave disperses and integrates with the cosmic background.

[Extra message and link from Laurence to contemplate on 13 Deer:]
My Plnti website (takes three minutes to view!), which I put up as a personal affirmation and reminder to myself about the plenitude that comes from grace and openness, seems appropriate to this day and may evoke something for you.

12 Skull

Life begins as undifferentiated wholeness. Then, through contrast, life becomes richer and more conscious of itself. 

The Egg, by Laurence James Lucas

Endings and beginnings, separations, barriers, boundaries, restrictions, structures, renewals, discovery – all of these principal experiences bring lucidity.

Today is a great day for structure, as this day can give you the cold-bone reasoning and clear understandings that the mind is comfortable with.

Strange skull, from Pinterest
'from a museum in Brazil'

The potential of this day is that you can actually feel a sense of regeneration. Skull is death and rebirth and, when combined with the mental clarity of 12, it allows for a consciously chosen change.

A good day to appreciate limitations within your life and how these limitations bring you more consciousness. By recognising the value of a limitation, by feeling the profound validity of a restriction, you open the door to a transformation in an area of your life you have been experiencing as frustrating or blocked.

Consciously work with limitation today in order to be free.

The vision is implemented and organised and becomes real.

11 Serpent

Today, the energy focus is on survival, both physical and financial. However, do not react from a place of fear – go deeper.

Tune into the life force of your body today.

Sperm, by Laurence James Lucas

Your cellular impulses are adjusted by whatever direction is taken by your attention and your imagination. This adaptation of your vision is an instinctive process.

Do not underestimate the power of your life force – the deepest level of desire you have.

Original image from Google

The door into this base energy opens for you today. The Serpent life force has an instinctive intelligence that can lead you in the best direction for your survival and flourishment.

Adjustment, adaptability, improvement and some gentle releasing as you allow your higher intelligence to direct your energy towards the actions you need to take.

[On 20 January 2016, Laurence added this bonus message and link for us to contemplate on 11 Serpent, still very relevant today:]
I was sent this article (below) this morning and it feels very pertinent to the times we are in, as well as to 11 Serpent.

How to declutter your life by not giving a fuck

‘… we’ve added a lot more mental clutter, a lot more obligation and therefore a lot more mental anxiety and a lot more guilt and those are the things I’m trying to pare down in my life by not overcommitting [to things that] aren't in the service of making me happy…’

The anti-intellectualism we are experiencing is due to the intense emotional friction and the saying ‘I don’t give a fuck’ seems to be very popular...

The adjustments we are having to make in our lives now involve knowing what to let go of and when. Today, 11 Serpent, is an opportunity to feel into the important things in your life by seeing where your energy is being sapped unnecessarily.

Of course, that is not the end of the process. Taken to the nth degree, ‘not giving a fuck’ leads to nihilism, for we have to find what we truly care about, which starts with those we love and the world we live in.

Cynicism towards much of the mainstream seems to be a healthy emotion in this epoch, and decluttering our mind of outdated conditioning regarding the present social system is an important part of being the change we wish to see.

What about the pursuit of happiness? This seems to be a flawed idea, for this period at least. A ‘pursuit’ of happiness will push it away – pursuing happiness through money, status, unending pleasure, or even perpetual bliss and inspiration is not really appropriate to the present condition.

As ever, looking to live with a sense of purpose, without too much fanfare, would appear to be our best option.

First thing’s first: declutter.

10 Lizard (Seed)

Key concepts for today: Vision experienced, immanence, involvement in the dream, experiential state of consciousness, stepping into awareness.

Framing the Intent, by Laurence James Lucas

Today – being Day 10 in the Eagle Timewave, and ruled by Lizard (Seed) – the soft focus of seeing existence with the clear, unsentimental vision of Eagle produces the manifestation of a clear, tangible intention, or a visceral psychic connection to the intelligence of life.

A good day to see the present condition and symbolic picture of your life template. A good day to feel a sense of, or envisage the intent for, your purpose and being.

Orbital Mechanics,
by the amazing Tatiana Plakhova of Complexity Graphics

Everything has a template. Every form, be it organic or non-organic, every life has a template. However, I suggest that templates are not fixed as absolutes; rather, they are enduring, essential abstract thought forms evoked from the monadic plane of existence during the involution of consciousness, which are then shaped by the systemic forces of the material realm.

Why are they not fixed? Because we live in a feedback universe of toroidal form.

Thus your actions and being in every moment are enfolded back into your self, the self that is beyond this life. The template adapts and adjusts, albeit slowly. The template grows and adjusts as we feed back to it from our life experience.

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

[Full Moon today, exact time 05:39 UTC/GMT; 13:39 HK time]

A profound confrontation with the mystery and the existential crisis of the human soul.

A good day to find inner security.

Day 9 of each timewave is always one where we wake up beyond the 13-day cycle we are in, to gain a connection to the future and to the past. The larger cycles of our life come into our awareness. 

What has completed or is completing?

Image from here

Foredawn, also known as Dark House, is the void before dawn, the moment of anticipation that is devoid of anything the mind can grasp, but which is fecund with what the soul can sense.

Be with the mystery. Become conscious of the fecund space of today. Create some time for daydreaming. Enjoy and feel at home in the emptiness that is fertile.

Are you feeling lost? Then go deeper into the mystery, for the soul is not lost but is at home in the mystery.

8 Wind

Implementing Your Vision, by Laurence James Lucas

Implementing Your Vision
Come into alignment with the message that life is giving you and organise your information. Bring balance to what you have to say, so that you can commit to the essential message you want to convey to others.
Diary of Discoveries, by Vladimir Kush,
one of Laurence's and my favourite artists. Image from here

This is a day of commitment to communication. Clear those emails, phone that person, or commit to the message you really need to convey – this means prioritise.

What is it you really need to say and who do you really need to say it to?

What is the most important communication you need to make today?

What goes around comes around: Receiving a message...

During the last timewave, which was the Wind Timewave, you sent out a breath, a powerful and clear thought – orally, telepathically or via a text or an email – which has now activated or catalysed someone and they are responding today.

Image: Jack Haas, from here

Note from Carey: On 8 Wind of 13 March 2013, our good friend Daniel Clarke interviewed Laurence on our rooftop terrace, at home on Lamma Island. Here, in the first of two videos, Laurence implements his vision and commits to the essential message he wanted to convey to others, by discussing his life's work and his model of the evolution of human consciousness, the Enchantments of Life.

Effortless Resonance

6 Flower (Sun, Lord)

To the Maya, the Sun is also known as Lord Marksman because it shoots out its prana to each and every one of us. The day is also known as Flower, a delicate manifest celebration of light.

Prana, by Laurence James Lucas

Day 6 in every timewave is a day of rhythm; delicately organised, organically structured with a flow.

Today you can organically step into your power. True power, though, is ‘meek’ – not weak, but humble; not tolerant of injustice, but not aggressive; not frightened to speak the truth, for when you are attuned to the Sun your authority comes from the Source.

The sensitive person surrenders to the Source. This takes strength; strength of receptivity and a heart-based decision to radiate the truth of a conscious, creative reality without apology to those who would negate life and reduce it to its baser elements.

A reminder:
The 260-day calendar is a different frequency of time that exists simultaneously alongside the standard 7-day week, 12-month year of the Gregorian calendar, as well as the 13-month Lunar cycle.

By following the Mayan Sacred Calendar, you start to tune into this other frequency, which is a subtle pervading flavour of reality that synchronises life on Earth with the greater galaxy.

The 260-day Tzolkin is both archaic-shamanic and techno-futuristic. You are accessing a whole different realm of time/space/energy. Be patient and just observe; enjoy the 13-day rhythm of each timewave, and the 20-day rhythm of the Daykeepers. Gradually, the consciousness of this 260-day calendar does awaken within you.

5 Storm

Be the peace in the eye of the storm. Look to retain some detachment and internal quiet, whilst you enjoy an unusual routine and unexpected occurrences. 

Created by Carey

Today offers you the chance to be enlivened by the change of rhythm, without being pulled into full external engagement.

A good day to wake up to the fact that an obligation – something that has been dragging you down, possibly even without your knowing it – can be released.

Storm, by André Eichman

Also a good day to enter the world of the Nagual, the parallel realms of the shaman/sorcerer, as a vortex opens within you, freeing you and purifying you from your identity and compulsions.

See with your inner eye and feel the enticement of the direct experience of another land. If you dip your toe, the energy will flow and then you must surrender...

4 Obsidian (Mirror, Flint)

A day of transparent reflection. See yourself in all things; see others within you.

A good day for multidimensional thinking and seeing things from many different perspectives.

Help another with their vision for life, to help you see, clarify or receive your own life vision more clearly.

Image created for us by Kookie Birjukov,
based on a concept by Laurence,
for use in our Enchantments of Life: The Holosphere
series of workshops

The foundation of life, from the Soul’s perspective, is the multidimensional structure created by the Soul’s involution before birth. The Soul slowly falls asleep, creating dreams within dreams within dreams, until birth, when the body wakes up and we have mostly forgotten the journey of incarnation. The Soul reflects upon itself and then the reflection reflects upon itself, creating the levels of the psyche.

Today, you might feel the remembrance of the dreamer and get a hint of the levels of the psyche normally hidden from the conscious mind. Look outside the mind to see your Soul reflected back to you.

In general, today is a great day for complex organization, clear basic structuring of information, large visions and big projects.

Golden Ratio in Nature, from Google images

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 4 Obsidian:]
The challenges of this epoch require personal responsibility, but they also require a more open, adaptive, connective responsibility that realises the whole psychic landscape is in flux.

This means your sense of unease is not just within your personal domain – the whole planet is in flux and uncertainty. See the reflections within the reflections. Live with the edge of uncertainty.

Open your mind to the flowing, fluctuating, psychic landscape – the planet is on the move, but it starts with flux.

3 Earthmover

Today you might find it is hard to be still.

Restless? Strong desire just to get on with things?

Generating energy for a more complete vision and connection to life.

Funk, by Laurence James Lucas

The shifting energy, the swirling chaotic maelstrom of Earth and human society has an evolutionary impulse towards greater and greater complex unity.

Energy is not lost when disruptions occur in our life, rather energy is released for new structures.

Image from here

Today you can feel the movement of energy, even if the direction of change is not obvious. Go with the shifting environment you find yourself in.

Energy is being generated... the engine is being switched on. Rev up…

A reminder: The 260-day Sacred Calendar of the Maya links our daily lives with the greater cosmos of which Earth is a part. Consciousness, as ever, is the key.

2 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

A good day to strengthen the mind and prepare a clear channel for your highest truth to shine through later.

Enclosure, by LjL

Today brings the challenge of holding two truths, which on the surface seem to oppose, disturb or disrupt each other – hold your ground, for the overall vision encompasses both truths.

Eventually, the contrast of opposing energies always yields a higher truth, a more encompassing experience of reality. Whether it be personal or social, withhold judgement, yet become conscious of the polarities, the light and the shadow. Prepare the ground...

At a higher frequency, you find a way to fit two truths or positions into a cohesive whole – that is the challenge.

Today is a day when it is often best to stay silent – do not rush to offer your opinion.

Enjoy the diversity of other people’s minds. A good day to listen and to note differences.

If you are engaged with people who are happy with the paradox and complexity of life, then profound truth can be found in conversation today.
