Something unexpected and rather wonderful can come to you today in the midst of whatever you are doing.

A good day to be curious and to enjoy your vocation, without taking it too seriously.

If you do take yourself too seriously, the trickster will show up. If you act too silly, the trickster will put on a serious face. However, a little impudence is appropriate today. Drop that which needs to be dropped (fear and worldly seriousness) and feel the sense of extraordinary fun that is implicit in life.

Today, a sense of magic can emerge in your work, while a sense of purpose can emerge in your leisure.

Monkey is associated with the artisans who carved the glyphs and constructed the temples – the sacred creative work that gave the labourers a connection to the Mayan Cosmology, which reflects the reality of the cosmic game.

Play the game of life today and be open to the miraculous, for Monkey is weaving magic into the air and it might just be your turn.

6 Dog

[Saturday 30 March 2019]

No creature is an island.

All creatures (created beings) need others in order to survive and flourish. If you want to survive, you have to have other creatures in your life. If you want to DO something effectively – to exercise the power of your life force – you need to align with others.

Most of all, though, if you want to make life worth living, you need companionship and love.

Today, your energy flows as long as you align and seek harmony with others. Recognise the value of those special people in your life.

Created by Carey

The world keeps shifting all around us; everything is always in flux.

Today, move your awareness towards the unchanging monadic realm through the agency of soul. Go within yourself and listen to the most subtle of feelings. Connect to the dreamer within, without grasping.

Feel your centre and recognise the transient elements of the physical world, for today you have the opportunity to feel connected to the Soul and to notice how it takes part in generating the rolling stream of reality that unfolds before you.

Bring your focus to the body – it has been gifted with the fertility of creation.
  • The foundation of life is abundant and any reality can proliferate. 
  • Whatever direction you choose in life offers opportunities and the enjoyment of life.
  • The foundation of light and its radial quality is at the heart of every cell and powers the instincts.
  • The paths of your life bifurcate (the proverbial crossroads are ubiquitous), but the essential truth of emptiness and fullness remains constant in each moment.

Today is a good day to stay grounded in the awareness of life’s essential impulse to create. Do not force anything. Stay present and listen to the body, for it is the key to experiencing the truths listed above.

3 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

[Wednesday 27 March 2019]

Flowing and merging, then emerging. Navigating, adjusting and recalibrating the impulses of survival, power, ambition and essential needs.

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.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 3 Deer:]
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 specialisation 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.

Discus chronologicus, a depiction of time by German engraver
Christoph Weigel, published in the early 1720s; from 'Cartographies of Time'

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.

2 Skull

[Tuesday 26 March 2019]

Separation of Energy
The way to handle today’s energy is through a conscious division of your day and resolute prioritising.

This is a great day for clarity and transformation in a specific area of your life or work. Do you have an important loose end to tie up?

Determine to focus, be strong in not allowing distractions to pull you off course, and then relax into your task.

Mandala painting by Carey

Boundaries need to be defined. The definition of space is the context for experience. Power resides with those who define the space that we walk around in. Be clear with your environment and define the space in accord with your needs.

If necessary, call upon help from the spiritual realm to guide you to alter your space in accord with your purpose, function and intention. If the space – the environment, the place that you live and work in – is not in accord with your intentions and your purpose, you cannot operate successfully. The challenge then is to work with the environment, the spirit of it, and to create a resonant field that supports you.

[Extra message from Laurence for today:]
I often find that on Skull days the day is cut in half with one energy up to around midday or lunchtime, and then a distinct change in the afternoon.

1 Serpent

[Monday 25 March 2019]

A new 13-day timewave starts today – Serpent (aka Snake or Chicchan).

Composite created by Carey

The Life Force timewave of Serpent begins today. Feel the frequency of survival, sex and power.

A good opportunity to engage with the essential life force in your body, to master some survival issues and to understand the power you have over your life.

Power up your life and vitality, but don’t overpower others.

Lilith (1887) by John Collier

Our natural instincts can inform our intuition. But do not let instincts rule your mind or feelings. Instead, allow the instinctive, natural vitalising fecundity of your Serpent energy to feed you with confidence, to guide you and to turn up the volume of that which supports your life and enables you to flourish.

13 Lizard (Seed)

[Sunday 24 March 2019.]

Today also marks two years in the Gregorian (aka civil) calendar since the departure of my beloved Laurence James Lucas. May he walk the cosmic oceans in joy, and continue to delve with delight into the plasma of consciousness, with his laughter ringing out across the skies. Always and forever in my heart, soul and mind.

A good day to scatter seeds. 

Let go and enjoy the potentials of all areas of your life. Welcome into your imagination the diversity of your desires. Embrace the potentiality of your life.

This is also a good day to network and to see the value of the wider community of friends and contacts within which you operate.

Most of our desires that manifest do so because of the people we know.

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

[Saturday 23 March 2019]

The Long Good Road of Life is an adventure that we cannot ultimately control – the most powerful energy within life is Mystery.

Foredawn is also known as Dark House, or Dark Night, the moment before the Sun rises and, as night culminates, the time between worlds.

Today, 12 Foredawn in the Good Road Timewave, is a good day to truly accept that we cannot completely know it all, nor can we maintain everything perfectly, nor even fully control ourselves.

The brilliant light of the void feeds us with the joy of emptiness and the wonder and awe of the absolute mystery. We both revere the mystery and fear the mystery.

Respect the womb of creation, trust in life and embrace the open-ended journey of consciousness that continues after death.

Allow an element of insecurity and uncertainty to exist in your subconscious and then you can truly walk the walk of life with real confidence, for you have allowed yourself to have faith in the intelligence of Life itself, which is always one step ahead of us in its benevolent abundant totality.

Doors Open
Yesterday the Mayan Pulse was orientated to the gifts of your life as it is. Today it opens the doors to new possibilities and the way to step forward on your path.

Laurence loved this place and felt the positive,
nurturing energies here very strongly

The incoming energy is facilitated by communication on every level, be that telephone, email or inspired guidance from subtle realms.

Communicate and receive communication today with full awareness. Allow yourself to be broadband in giving and receiving information, but distil and integrate before acting upon any inspiration.

Step forward and communicate

Cosmic rays whistle through the Earth and a doorway opens up to the bifurcating paths of time.

Life presents you with different options; each one unfolds into a different expression of your destiny. Be attentive to information and recognise how futures are built starting from the most subtle movements in your psyche.

The Cornucopia of Life, graphic by LjL

Feel and accept the nourishment available today.

A day of totally accepting what is; waking up to, sensing and receiving all that is good all around you. Appreciate that which is readily available.

Your life produces rewards. As you step forward, life automatically credits you with the goodness of enrichment, regardless of failures, mistakes and bad times.

If any burdens or problems do manifest today, the way forward is to accept their existence, but do not let them define your life. Instead, expand your awareness to see the abundance that is already in your life.

Feel and accept the cornucopia of life.

9 Flower (Sun, Lord)

[Wednesday 20 March 2019. Vernal Equinox at exactly 21:58 UTC (but tomorrow morning here in HK, at exactly 05:58)]

A great day to feel truly awakened.

Your Long Good Road opens up ahead as you see the illuminated horizon and become conscious of an aspect of your arrival – your destiny.

Be sensitive to the intuitive flash that reveals to you the ‘You’ who you are to be.

A good day to find yourself at the end of the road, beyond the unfolding time we all experience, looking back to where you are now on the linear path.

Alternatively, use your imagination to go forward in time and ask yourself who you want to be, who are you in essence, and how can you be more like that.

8 Storm

[Tuesday 19 March 2019]

Today, make the commitment to break some outworn patterns.

Novelty on the Horizon

You feel the comfort of your home or inner psychological haven while the Storm of life’s chaotic challenges and adventures brew outside.

Today, steady yourself and know that the exhilaration of the journey awaits you ‘out there’.

Heartfelt thanks to my sister Caroline for this photo

Your heart can be gladdened that excitement and novelty is on the horizon, and that you are able to enjoy the comfort of this moment while you prepare yourself by making that emotional investment of commitment.

Start to release yourself from any ritual or behaviour that will interfere with your ability to enjoy the fresh face of life that is about to be presented to you.

The World Out There, by LjL

Resonant Reflections
Whatever you see ‘out there’ in your world today has a more direct resonance with your state of consciousness than usual.

There will be a duality of light and dark reflections, true reflections and distorted reflections. By staying attuned and by feeling the energy, you can select and know the true reflections.

Uncredited image found on Google

A day to look for – and to expect – the good. Receive the images and messages, people and places that confirm your purpose and your true nature.

Clarify your inner world by making choices from what appears in the world out there.

A day of dynamic interlocking forces; energising and good for work and vigorous activity.

The day unfolds with a certain controlled urgency. Stay responsive and allow the natural force of the day to move you.

Follow the flowing synchronicities of the day with passion and action.

5 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

[Saturday 16 March 2019]

Find your truth and hold your centre.

Consider your next move carefully. Then calmly and with surety start to move.

The Journey of Life – the Thousand-Mile Journey – begins with a single step forward. Make your first step one that is firm, confident and true. You then change the options and experience of the next thousand miles.

Alternatively, slow down or stop what you are doing or what you are actively involved in. Be prepared to reset or integrate more before proceeding.

Take a moment.
