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

[Monday 31 May 2021]

Processing, clearing and creating space. Today is a day of movement in the subconscious and unconscious.

Enclosure, by Laurence James Lucas

Connect to your inner sanctum. The deepest part of your soul is a place of mystery that serves the purpose of nourishing you with a potent emptiness and privacy.

Today, allow the potentials to reorganise themselves.

On 6 Foredawn of 26 September 2010,
Laurence decided to nourish himself
by spending some of his day outside
with his paints, brushes and some canvases

The different expressions of the psyche – the multiplicity of needs, desires, complexes, wounds, frustrations and considerations – organically self-organise as you gradually let go of trying to control life, releasing the need to know.

This creates the space.

Be at peace.

Wherever we were and whatever we were doing,
Laurence always took time in the early mornings
to connect to his inner sanctum,
to delve into the mystery of his soul,
to let go and to create space.
His daily practice of tai chi, yoga and
shamanic journeying
nourished him deeply and thus allowed him
to deeply nourish others.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 6 Foredawn:]

The vast expanse of universal consciousness creates firstly by separating self from self through the Word, the activating Spirit of the Cosmic Breath, which is the Wind character in the Mayan Sacred Calendar (yesterday was 5 Wind).

The next step is to create an enclosure, a womb, the centre of the holy trinity. The womb is the 'House' Daykeeper character of today. It is the all-important place of safety for us – our home, our inner sanctum. It is a place of mystery that serves the purpose of nourishing us with a potent emptiness and privacy.

5 Wind

[Sunday 30 May 2021]

You are a nexus of communication. Your ideas are shaped to a large degree by the ideas you receive from others. The ideals of independence are fairly illusory; however, you are unique in essence, at the core of your being.

Image found on google

A good day to connect to your own essential voice and inspiration. Receive inspiration from Source today and convey that to others. Be conscious of the fickleness of the mind and the instant impulse to be an automatic transmitter of the collective clichés that abound in the atmosphere.

Ask intelligent questions, rather than rushing to deliver a pleasing answer.

5 Wind is a good day to investigate and penetrate the informational field in which you live. Cut to the core of situations by questioning assumptions.

4 Crocodile

[Saturday 29 May 2021]


All of life sustains itself. Wherever you look, in any direction and in any realm, you will see life in its myriad forms sustaining itself.

cake artist, Carol Wakefield, with many thanks!

Enjoy sustenance today. Surrender to the need for food, basic exercise, rest, time with the family, or whatever you feel is calling you to sustain the matrix of life within which you exist.

What do you need to feel sustained in this day?

4 Crocodile is not about forward motion or future concerns, rather it is about being grounded in the essential nurturance of your life.

What is the essential nurturance you feel you need today?

Allow it to be; receive and give the essential food of life to your life and to the life all around you.

Focus on the frequency of nurturing, sustaining, security, comfort and being-ness.

3 Flower (Sun, Lord)

[Friday 28 May 2021]

A day of light and energy vibrating. Feel the body and the world as a vibration of light.

Heartfelt thanks to Ewa Wilkinson
for this beautiful photo

The emotions of anticipation will arise – do not let the mind jump ahead to a conclusion, an absolute or the need for an outcome. If you grasp the energy, restlessness and anxiety will arise – stay with the anticipation.

Different aspects of the psyche, normally compartmentalised or shut off from each other, are able to cross-pollinate today. It will most likely be subtle, but you will feel energised. 

Thank you Robert Burton
for this beautiful photo

Feeling is a form of subtle matter; it is the material that is most commonly experienced and yet is considered to be merely subjective, due to the shield of the mind. Today, light will pass over and through different aspects of your psyche.

The opportunity of the day is that you can enjoy the feeling of potentiality.

Cross-pollination; image found on google

Do not get fixated on negative potentials, but come into alignment with your vision and your aspirations for your life. Stay with the feeling of potentiality. Move into that space without grasping; just enjoy the feeling that reminds you that life is mutable and that you are a co-creator who can attract more benevolent abundance into your life.

Allow yourself to move into that energy space of benevolent abundance.

2 Storm

[Thursday 27 May 2021]

The pull of opposites today can be exhilarating as you move into unexpected zones and experiences.

Energy ricochets back and forth; we are confronted with our polarities.

Storm Clouds, heartfelt thanks to David Ogg

Today is about the constant existential movement between being in the eye of the storm, enjoying stillness, and being caught in the midst of the cyclone of necessity (especially all that is associated with money), novelty, engagement and relating.

The desire to truly break free from the constraints of yourself can make you feel you are being pulled apart and/or give you the space to find some unexpected inner freedom.

Break free

A good day to recognise how you have created your life as it is; how the mixing bowl of your psyche, filled with all the divergent needs and desires, has resulted in the reality in which you walk.

To find freedom in this day, accept the situation and your own duality. You then have the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the novelty and variety that life offers you.

What's in your psychic mixing bowl?
Photo thanks to André Eichman

Consciously create some contrast in your day. Deliberately embrace some contrasting activities.

The potential result of this day is a genuine sense of refreshment, whilst accepting the existential pull of opposites.

1 Obsidian (Mirror, Flint)

[Wednesday 26 May 2021. FULL MOON 13:14 UTC, 12:13 BST (19:14 HK time). Total eclipse of the Moon] 

A new 13-day timewave begins today: Obsidian (aka Obsidian Mirror, Flint or Etznab). 

Image found on Google

In this 13-day period, look at the shadow with a clear perception. When you look into the smoking mirror, keep looking through the clouds until you find the clear sky.

The world reflects ourselves back to us, revealing a semblance of the totality of our desires and inner feelings. This timewave will reveal the shadow of your life – and it is a challenge to accept that which you see.

Detail from 'First Day of Creation'
by Edward Burne Jones

However, the greatest challenge is to not see the fuzzy distortion of the shadow as the whole truth – it is just part of the truth. The light, the bright, the good and the beautiful are more powerful and more pertinent to life.

You are not your shadow, so do not identify with it. Accept the shadow of your relationships, your culture and your world as aspects, forces and elements that make up the entirety of your reality.

Detail from 'The Crystal Ball' (1902)
by John William Waterhouse
(although I confess I have altered her
crystal ball slightly,
so that it is now Obsidian)

Acceptance is Love. See the shadow, then look beyond it, because the shadow is also illusory from the perspective of unity consciousness.

The opportunity afforded in this timewave is to be brave enough to open the heart that bit wider, with intelligence.

Open, accept and increase your connection to the essential awesome nature of life.

This amazing aerial photograph of shadows cast by
camels walking through the desert beautifully illustrates
Laurence’s reminder that ‘You are not your shadow.’
The black ‘camels’ are in fact shadows, while the actual camels
are little more than slim blonde lines.

13 Earthmover

[Tuesday 25 May 2021]

How does one keep up with the ‘million things’ that are in your life, all changing, growing and demanding attention?

You connect to the Source, from where all things grow and evolve.

Connect to the Source, by LjL

The still point within you is the place where you connect to Source. From here, you are more able to respond to the emerging energy that needs your attention now. Though this is easier said than done, you can access that energy and consciousness today.

A good day to connect to the expanding web of synchronous interconnections that springs outwards in all directions from the ubiquitous centre of ‘now’.

Light in the Forest,
aka Web of Synchronous Interconnections
Composite created by Carey,
using a background image created by Laurence

Your life is interconnected to all of reality and you can see or feel the force of the energy that is expanding out in all directions, through 360 degrees. Potentially, this is omnidirectional through almost infinite realms.

The life force in your body is the evolutionary impulse as it exists within you; it is a manifestation of the radial power that drives the world around you. Allow your awareness to become still, let go of compulsions to control your life, then respond to the impulse that springs from the stillness.

kind permission to use his artwork

The kundalini is the manifestation of the collective unconscious will, the will of the whole human species. This will or impulse of evolution has two drives:

First: Survival, which gives rise to security, control, or, in some cases, manic power compulsion to manipulate and enslave.

Second: Transformation, which gives rise to the desire for the new, the restless urge to move on and to surrender to new experience, or the death wish, self-destruction or self-loathing.

It is our power; if we own it, we flourish. If we consciously own it, we flourish in accord with the interests of the whole human species and with life on Earth.

Today offers the opportunity to ascend to a new level of empowerment, to some degree.

12 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

[Monday 24 May 2021]

A good day to understand the truth you need to live by in order to survive, flourish and be centred in your power.

Chakras and their corresponding glands, by LjL

Today, you can see how to organise your life so that it is compatible with the fulfilment of your true needs.

Step into the quietness of your inner self and see that the tenacity required to live with strength is inherent within you.

The inherent intelligence of the life force, the power that holds life in existence, is a strong, still protector – feel the power of your personal truth.

Poster for one of our courses,
conceptualised by Laurence and
created thanks to Kookie

The Owl and the Vulture sit upright. The key for the Warrior is the spine, where the two dancing snakes of the kundalini rise. To be a Warrior of the Heart and to speak a truth that serves your own abundance – as well as the vitality and benevolence of the world – is a rare, almost unheard of consciousness in the public domain today.

Composite created by Carey
using images found on Google

To be a true Warrior of the Heart requires the connection of the life force from the base chakra all the way up to the crown.

A silent Warrior of the Heart would be connected from base to heart, but not necessarily at the throat or beyond. A fearless martyr Warrior may well be connected at base and the heart, but not necessarily at the sacral (second) chakra, the place of basic nourishment and the needs of the self.

Where is your energy disconnected? Where is it connected? Today is a good day to understand yourself in this way.

11 Eagle

[Sunday 23 May 2021]

Eagle is a spiritual talisman of compassion combined with the clarity of the Sacred Warrior. Eagle flies between Heaven and Earth, scanning for the appropriate small detail to focus upon, in order to nourish itself.

Today, ask yourself: ‘What needs to be integrated into my life? What detail have I passed over that needs focusing upon? What is appropriate?’

The Plumed (or Feathered) Serpent:
Quetzalcoatl, one of the great Gods of Ancient Mesoamerica,
is a synthesis of serpent and bird.
The quetzal was a sacred bird with very beautiful feathers
that were used in elite and ritual costumes.
Image found on Google

Eagle tells us that the ecstasy of spiritual flight is to be combined with the pressing needs down in the theatre of the world. Allow yourself to feel the lightness of your heart, be elevated, then be open to the specific aspect of your life that requires attention. However, if you cannot find the connection between Heaven and Earth, do not worry – just walk through the door that opens.

Opening into something larger; image from here

Within the manifest world today, a sky door opens for you. Enjoy the freedom, then remember to look clearly at the subtle fluctuation in your daily flow, for this is both a requirement and an opportunity. Zoom in and expand the picture. Allow the fuzzy, seemingly random occurrence, the minor discordance, the unexpected meeting, the lateral event, the moment of inspiration, the small delight, the unusual energy or the spontaneous call to expand into view, so you can see with clarity the significance of this in your life and to your life.

Today, something small opens up into something larger than you first realised, promising more freedom by attending to it.

Image found on Google

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 11 Eagle:]

As kundalini energy rises, the brow chakra opens up, for it is here that the wings of the bird appear in the caduceus; where the soul takes flight into other dimensions of reality.

Today is not about the integration of the dual writhing serpents, but rather the arrival of the serpents at the gate. What opens up for you today will be fully integrated later.

Composite created by Carey

Take flight consciously. Explore a new energy, but if you cannot yet see the connection to the world below, do not worry, just ask the question. Step into an elevated awareness, utilise the visionary gateway and wait for a sign.

10 Jaguar

[Saturday 22 May 2021]

Be alert and respond. Be a hunter. Be sovereign.

Our sovereign cat, Nougat

Do not be afraid to act autonomously today. Do what you are impulsed to do for your vitalised survival. Independence of thinking and action is required on 10 Jaguar.

Ideally, you will have some time in a natural environment to align your impulses with the power of nature. This is a good day for effective Shamanic action.

If you live with a cat, you know the score. They tell you, ‘It’s all about me.’ Cats are one manifestation (Day 10) of the Serpent consciousness. Cats are playful predators and are sensitive to all manner of cosmic energies. We have them as pets, knowing that they are self-centred, because they give so much with their presence.

Step into some of your magnificence, like a cat, because your playful edgy self-expression enlivens the atmosphere for everyone.

Although one cannot manifest the full potential of Spirit, it is important to be able to connect to the unlimited unique essence of who you really are.

There has never been a more important time in human history for individuals to remember the divine freedom that is our birthright.

Today, be cool, composed, naturally regal and leisurely – yet alert, with a hint of attitude.

Take time to appreciate your own uniqueness in order to appreciate the uniqueness of others. Some self-love is in order to be able to truly give the gift of love to others.

9 Reed (Skywalker)

[Friday 21 May 2021]

Allow the mind its freedom to explore potentials concerning your needs.

On Day 9 of the Serpent Timewave, we are guided towards and can directly experience the truth that a more fruitful survival in this realm requires some investment of energy, so that we can understand the future we are projecting into existence from this moment – the timeline.

Wake Up to Your Power
Composite created by Carey,
featuring an ouroboros drawing by LjL

Also today, allow the mind to ask questions and store those questions in the subconscious; know that you are creating answers in your future.

The abstract and free-associating aspects of our mind are not confined to three dimensions, nor to the immediate events of our life. The higher mind creates subtle structures of thought that are multidimensional, existing in translinear time.

Your thoughts feed the Noosphere; the Noosphere feeds your mind.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 9 Reed, on the subject of power:]

Going Deeper

The Serpent Timewave gives us the opportunity to reconnect to the power of life and, in so doing, we are given the choice to exercise power according to free will. Today is a good day to wake up to your power.

Power is often associated with abuse and therefore we fear it. Respect power and be guided by the need of the whole human species, which is that we – you and me, the average human being – are now meant to be gracefully in our power. This does not mean you become a shouter, an angry debater, a pumped-up alpha male, or a ball-crushing devouring goddess.

Image by Mary Clanahan, from
'How to Make Friends with Your Reptilian Brain'

The extent that we have given our power away is the extent that we have disconnected from the serpent-reptilian life force, our lizard brain, kundalini and survival instinct, the sex force, the evolutionary impulse and the fundamental vitalising component of this Earthly domain.

In the world today, the automated reptilian energy has manifested as externalised forms, such as the technology of computers. The reptile force, the life force, is an automaton that is meant to be directed by consciousness. In the same way, the computer – like the rational mind – is a tool and is not designed to be our master.

Also, our unclaimed life force has manifested a reptilian power élite, whose existence is partially in the transdimensional realms and who are attempting to enslave humanity through automated default technologies, such as in a computer-chipped population, or as psychic food through the constant triggering of fear.

I do not think the dystopian vision will fully manifest, but the fact that the externalised matrix is now evident as a real possibility prompts us to rise above the default options on reality that are being presented via the media and scientism...

... and, by doing so, we are then prompted to go to the next level, where we recognise that the snake, the reptile, is not the enemy, for it exists within us all and it is our responsibility to reclaim our power – quite simply, as it turns out, through our body connection.

8 Good Road (Human, Grass, Long Good Road)

[Thursday 20 May 2021]

Today is a day to trust in your heart’s desire to seek more out of life, to recognise that life offers you more. 

Eight hearts, by Carey

The commitment of the heart involves valuing the yearning you feel to live with more adventure, rewards and wonder. Although we do not always get what we desire, the desire itself is an important energy to keep you vital, alive and engaged.

Commit to the truth that life is a journey and that you are here to help fellow travellers whilst enjoying the trip.

Helping Hand, by Wayne Pascall
found on Google

It is easier to close down and protect yourself from the fear of failure, loss or disappointment than it is to dare to dream. Life will keep challenging your aspirations, forcing you to adjust, and will teach you to have some detachment from your ambitions, your desires and your inspired longings.

Composite created by Carey
using an image found on Google

However, the challenge is to adapt and to keep seeking, for the seeking itself is the abundance of the unfolding adventure of your life.

Today is a prompter to break free a little from anything that inhibits your heart.
