5 Monkey

[Sunday 28 February 2021]

The Deer Timewave is about navigating the ever-changing emergent world. This consciousness is the recognition of the unpredictable nature of life’s exact unfoldment.

Monkey is the spirit who is at home with the truth of the Trickster, whose domain is in the details and lateral potentials. Monkey is at home here because Monkey is the Creative Trickster.

Come back to that part within you that knows life really is a game. Radiating out from the centre of your being is your own free will, which is a monkey unto itself.

Today, recognise the truth that outcomes may not be exactly what we expect (notably in regards to specific timing of manifestations). This will keep us alert and awake. The universe is always generating randomness within the context of its overall direction.

Today is also a good day to be conscious of the many faces that life shows us, including the different sub-personalities through which we express ourselves, each being a slightly different mask for a different theatre. Today, recognise the truth of role play.

All masks veil and express the unified consciousness. Empower yourself by accepting that the Trickster Monkey is an essential part of creation.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 5 Monkey:]
Throughout human history, we have continued to evolve despite the dark agendas – and the truth is that the controlling forces do create structure.

As we evolve, the prevailing structure becomes limited and we have to break through to another level and/or to an expanded structure, which means the controllers then have to regroup.

Image found on Google

The expansion of consciousness and cultural evolution increases the diversity of polarity and the stakes get raised on each level.

In this 2012 era, the stakes are truly raised. Be conscious of the game of life and of your role in it.

4 Dog

[Saturday 27 February 2021. FULL MOON 08.17 UTC/GMT (16:17 Hong Kong time)]

The foundation for the elastic strength of the Deer Timewave starts with emotional security. Today, 4 Dog, feel the emotional boundaries you operate within.

We all have our family, including ancestral, friends and work colleagues.

Today, recognise the feeling of belonging that you enjoy through the people you find yourself with. You do belong – you just need to recognise how and where.

This day is a day to truly feel into your emotional needs – all of them – as a way of recognising that your foundation is your emotional body. Feeling and accepting the emotional body is not the same as reacting to and living according to the dictates of the emotional kaleidoscope.

Feel it all as the juice within you; hold onto the impulses.

A good day to recognise and consciously set and embrace your own emotional limits.

3 Water (Moon)

[Friday 26 February 2021]

Transmissions and emanations from the soul.

Composite created by Carey

Energy is generated on Day 3 of every timewave. Today, a general sense of charged emotional energy, anticipation, agitation, anxiety or excitement without a definite, discernible reason is present. Hold it lightly; this is the engine of your soul revving up and warming up.

Alternatively, today feel the tides of energy as one thing gradually flows into another. See the day as a wave form, or as wave forms, cresting and falling, then rising again. Follow the rhythms you feel from within.

To stay in the flow, utilise the power of Water and offer yourself to Life. 


Be ready to give to the moment and to share.

Allow deeper feeling to surface and you will find that you can quite naturally communicate from the soul, cleansing hidden emotions whilst giving permission to others to do the same.

Allow different areas of concern or interest to merge and overlap. Stay in the flow and you will find that staccato or oscillating thoughts, fuelled by tension and adrenaline, will dissolve into natural movement. A day of confluence.

Homage to Hokusai, by Carey

Offer gratitude to Life and release tension with simple evocations of acceptance. Feel a connectivity that is fluid yet strong.

Adaptation is spiritual power.

Homage to my beloved.
Today, 3 Water, is Laurence's Mayan birthday,
the sixth such day that I have honoured and celebrated alone
since his death on 24 March 2017 (11 Jaguar).
He now walks the Plasmic Hills and swims in the Cosmic Ocean,
but his spirit, his soul, his wisdom, his laughter and his love live on.

2 Rabbit (Star)

[Thursday 25 February 2021]

The diversity of all that attracts us can overwhelm us with promise, opportunity, beauty, brilliance, splendour and bliss – it is all too much if we try to grasp.

Photo originally by André Eichman,
photoshopped a little by me

All that glitters is not gold, and yet the sparkle of life is a reflection of divinity and is here for us to enjoy and celebrate.

Today you can feel the promise, the pull and the attraction of opposing forms and appearances. You may hear a desperate call within you to attend to one thing and ignore another.

by Jean Francois Armand Felix Bernard

On 2 Days, we can feel the duality inherent in our life. The multiplicity of appealing entertainment and urgent needs is actually a reminder of how extraordinarily abundant and omnidirectional life truly is.

Focus primarily on the vortex within the centre of it all – this is the white hole that gives birth to the abundance of all that is in your life.

Today, enjoy some diversity without getting sucked into any one reality tunnel.

1 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

[Wednesday 24 February 2021]

After Jaguar Timewave comes the timewave of Deer (also known as Hand or Grasp; Manik), starting today.

In the next 13 days, the Mayan Sacred Calendar guides you in the art of control. This timewave offers us the opportunity to learn how to respond appropriately to life; to know when to hold on and when to let go.

Deer or Hand is elusive and graceful, yet deceptively strong. So begins 13 days to awaken your spiritual power and nobility.

Spring Deer

The lesson of Deer is how to follow the ebb and flow of energies, which requires an ability to have the correct degree and balance of tension and relaxation – knowing when to hold on and when to let go. Deer are natural Daykeepers for they can respond easily and effortlessly to the rhythmic change of energies.

Diversity of organic tools

Deer is fleeting and yet makes itself known; Deer knows stillness and silence, yet has great speed and vitality. Deer utilises the diversity of organic tools at hand.

Navigate the full range of your capabilities and talents, and recognise both your masculine and your feminine traits during this timewave.

Hold, then release; hold the moment delicately and with some alertness.

13 Skull

[Tuesday 23 February 2021]

Today you find your detachment. That which interests you and that which you own will not possess you.

Today allows for the strength of mind to cut through fears by detaching from lower-level dramas and willing yourself to transcend to a freer realm of activity.

Created by Carey (thanks to David)

13 is the master number of spiralling movement and growth; it is in resonance with the Lunar Cycle and is a Fibonacci number. 13 is the movement into mystery, as we temporarily leave the orderly and rational behind. Skull is the power to cut free and to start again.

Today, you have the opportunity to cut through illusion, to free the self from unnecessary attachments. The teaching of today is to recognise the aspect of the self that is free from obligation and which is uncompromising.

Image found on Google

Although we all have to make adjustments and allowances to be part of the world, there is a line that is drawn which the world cannot cross. Your line is based on your ethics, personal axioms and, ultimately, your unique mode of being without undue sentiment…

Even if you renege a little on that which you reject now (by allowing it back into your life later), there is great strength in making an energetic stand of rejecting what you consider to be standing in the way of transformation and growth. This may include social peer group pressures.

Vitruvian Man, by Leonardo da Vinci

Do not acquiesce to that which seems to have power over you, if it is not feeding you; yield on the surface if you really have to, but not in the core of your being.

Remember that life is forever changing and you can continually start again and free yourself from anything that is unduly compromising your essence.

The Jaguar Timewave ends today. Jaguar is a warrior of the night and is in service to the Earth goddess; Jaguar is a spirit who reveres the wild and the natural, who is able to face the darkness and flourish. Jaguar illuminates the shadow with other-dimensional light. Jaguar frees us from the sterilising aspects of civilisation.

12 Serpent

[Monday 22 February 2021]

Understanding the importance of spending time in nature and the vitality it gives you.

Our local Power Station;

Be in the natural body, connected to nature, and allow your mind and emotions to follow the energy it gives you.


A day of understanding the instinctive level of reality. A day where you can connect to your own survival instinct and survival impulse. Today is a good day to recognise how the biorhythms shape our psychology and how they are interlinked with the invisible environment.

The snake is the manifest expression of the kundalini life force, the power to live and evolve. Serpent issues are issues of sex and power. The battle for power in the world takes place on many fronts and includes the agendas of many covert groups on Earth, but ultimately the whole drama of our evolution is part of the Cosmic Theatre.

We exist in a living universe and life is everywhere. Our kundalini plugs us into the cosmic drama and the evolutionary imperative of creation.

The 2012 effect* is a recalibration of the Earth’s energy field. The total consciousness of the Human Species is a significant – arguably the primary – component of the environment within which we move around. Our environment is the total planetary organism, as defined by the Earth’s energy and consciousness field, which interpenetrates and encompasses the electromagnetic field.

Composite created by Carey
using images found on Google

Our task is to stay conscious and to recognise the planetary level of change. By so doing, we come into alignment with the evolutionary necessity – even a small minority of people doing so will ensure survival and growth. Awakened consciousness resonates with the evolutionary impulse and therefore acts as the conduit for the transformational impulse.

Human culture emits a frequency and the frequency needs to be upgraded. As individuals, we cannot take on the responsibility of changing the culture directly – it is overwhelming and the overt power is in the hands of lower consciousness, in particular those souls enslaved by power lust.

Heavenly Fruits, by Vladimir Kush

However, as individuals we can act as nodes and conduits – unseen by the external radars – for the energy force to flow through.

Quite simply, recognise the larger view of time and space and connect intellectually, intuitively and emotionally to the evolutionary energy of change that is unmistakable. You will then be coming into alignment with the life force currents.

Good for you, good for me, good for us all.

[* Note from Carey: Laurence suggested the 2012 effect began in the mid-1980s and will continue to affect us well into the 2020s.]

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 12 Serpent:]

How do we survive, grow and flourish in the maelstrom of competing powers and the seemingly overwhelming forces that control or attempt to control our lives?

We stay alert, responsive and open – connected to the body and to our own power, recognising the basic need for money, but not giving our power away to anxiety.

The life force in our body is an expression of the evolutionary urge of the species; it is highly adaptable and can shed the skin of an outworn reality. Recognise your power to regenerate, value your power to reject that which does not serve you and value the power of your passion.

Today is a good day to have a clear perspective on power.

11 Lizard (Seed)

[Sunday 21 February 2022]

Opening the doors between what are normally compartmentalised realities. A day of modification; allow new energy in.

Doors between realities
Image found on Google

Seed is the first stage of abundance. All plants, or animals for that matter, produce a disproportionate number of seeds; nature allows for what we call ‘waste’ by producing the seeds for new life in magnificent abundance.

Lizard is a sophisticated absorber of the Sun and has a capacity to store sunlight. Sunlight, and the subtle energy of prana, is the pre-manifest seed of life.

Image from the Center for Food Safety

Today is Day 11 of the Jaguar Timewave, which is all about an instinctive level of reality. The Jaguar prowls the shadows, the underworld and the night with a relaxed alertness, knowing that opportunity is omnipresent. 11 is the number of adaptation of form; it is the open gate, the frequency of the transparency of all form.

Today, do not solidify your situation with rationality. Instead, be of an open mind; be flexible and spontaneous like a cat.

In the shadow of the world, new life, light and opportunity gestate. Be confident about the true abundance of life and allow yourself to absorb.

With a playful and easy affirmative gnosis, respond to the glimpses of feeling that Life is offering you abundance.

If you feel indebted, today offers the energy for your liberation.

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

[Saturday 20 February 2021]

The subtle, almost indefinable presence of the soul is ubiquitous.

The subject becomes object as you become conscious of the atmosphere. The environment you walk in is an environment of consciousness – the physical world is not solid. A good day to walk through walls.

The manifestation of the dreamlike space between the worlds

The Cosmos and the atom are mainly space, but space is an emptiness that is full.

Today, be still and face the darkness before the dawn. Look into the mystery of your life without concluding what will be.

Image found on Google

A good day to feel the fecundity of reality. Feel the potentials without grasping and without fear; listen not to the mind, but find the dream space.

Be the daydreamer who awaits with anticipation, for it is anticipation itself that is the goal of today. Gaze into the space in front of you and feel the space that opens up in your body.

Residing in anticipation brings you home to the soul.

Life is a Plenitude.

[Personal message first posted by Laurence on 10 Foredawn of 18 June 2010, and several times thereafter, to illustrate the texture and energy of today:]

Real de Catorce, Mexico

The picture above is of Real De Catorce, Mexico, a place I visited in 1997 with no money and rather unexpectedly. After a few days of enforced semi-fasting, I had a vision of 2012* whilst sitting here at dawn, overlooking the mountains.

The town is slightly haunted. It is an ex-silver-mining town with crumbling walls and buildings, and is gateway to the peyote desert. It is melancholic and beautiful; the land is wistful and so are the people.

The atmosphere of Real De Catorce at that time for me was wholly permeable and it was where I stayed at the end of a six-month trip that yielded the harvest of the Mayan experience.

9 Wind

[Friday 19 February 2021]

A day of clarity. After the almost undifferentiated energy of Crocodile comes the activator energy of Wind.

Composite created by Carey

9 Days are always wake-up calls on some level.

Can you hear that booming voice within you, telling you to speak or write with surety?

Can you hear the voice from deep within you, which is a decisive, uncompromising activating force that is either welling up or surging to the surface of your psyche?

You remember a truth that comes from beyond time.

Today is a good day to be decisive.

8 Crocodile

[Thursday 18 February 2021]

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.

Composite created by Carey

Nurture yourself and others. Be patient with your desire to renew your life; set a deep resolve for change that recognises and acknowledges the reality of how ingrained your habits are.

Activities that emphasise 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 depths of your primal roots.

Feel into the mystery and recognise the ongoing emanation that springs from the Goddess.

Healing Superstars

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.

Image from here

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.

7 Flower (Sun, Lord)

[Wednesday 17 February 2021]

Harmonic Resonance with Your Divine Light 

A day of feeling the resonance with the subtle light. The frequency of light you are attuned to could come in many forms – ancestral guidance, simple radiance, a sense of power, an opening of the heart.

Primal Earth Intelligence,

artwork 'Nature Intelligence'

To feel resonant, keep the day as simple as possible, if you can.

Do not be tempted to expend it all; stay sensitised and allow the natural flowering to occur and you will shine where it is appropriate.

A day where your divinity is empowered.

Express your sovereignty easily; be in your authority naturally.
