2 Lizard (Seed)

[Saturday 31 July 2021]

Today we see the inherent duality of our intentions and evolutionary impulses. We want two different realities simultaneously.

One intention is safe; the other is more risky. Both come with a consequence. What is the cost of each and which one are you prepared to pay?

The question then might be, ‘But I cannot choose! Isn’t some resolution of this paradox available?’

The result of this energy is that we might have moments of complete inertia. The best thing to do is to hold both intentions and to feel the differences. The tension will create some energy for tomorrow and you will benefit from being conscious of the polarity within you today. Tomorrow brings forward momentum in the shape of vitality.

Or: We might see the two opportunities sprouting from the same junction. These are the bifurcating potentials of reality, akin to the growth of a plant as it sprouts new stems.

Life is abundant. To live in abundance, we need intentionality and grace, so as not to be overwhelmed. Make choices – but hold those choices lightly.

I remind you that the energy of this timewave (Foredawn) is to allow some empty space of mystery to develop; to create a fecund space within the psyche. Face the shadow with an attitude devoid of solution-orientated logic. Open up your energy to the mystery and embrace the feeling of expectation.

Consciousness reflects upon itself. This is the movement of consciousness; the movement of consciousness is what we know as Time and Space.

The question you may ask concerning a resolution of the paradox should be held for now as a question. Allow the polarity to exist.

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

[Friday 30 July 2021]

Today, 1 Foredawn (also known as Dark House, Dark Night, or In the House; Akbal), begins a new 13-day timewave, one which asks you to enter the crack between the worlds.

Hong Kong Cityscape 2,
by Laurence James Lucas

The Foredawn Daykeeper is the cave, the bat, the house, the moment before sunrise and the gap between dark and light on the horizon (and also, to some extent, just after sunset). It is the dream world, the surreal, the womb, the abyss, the portal, the wormhole and, ultimately, inner security and psychic protection. Foredawn is the mystery that cannot be grasped, the space of fecundity and potentiality.

How do we approach the next 13 days?

Psychic Protections in the House
Composite created by Carey

Find your inner security, evoke psychic protections that allow you to filter and work with incoming subtle energies, and open up some Time and Space in your life. Evoke the personal sanctuary that is your soul.

The world is full of social compartments, walled off by fragile belief systems that are transparently illusory. The world has never been more surreal; the security it is offering is false. The mass mind is scrambling for solidity in a landscape of passing shadows and projections.

In this timewave, be in the space between spaces and find the security you need within yourself.

Thank you to
Vicky Baker Eichman

The challenge of discarding consensual agreements and stepping into a space of personal truth is hard, but the task is to be honoured – it is a challenge, yes, but we must leave the fakery behind now. The time has come...

Today, 1 Foredawn, make space in your life for the new to enter. Stay with an edge of uncertainty and embrace the intangible energy that exists between time and space, action and inactivity, light and dark.

Receive the dreams from beyond your self and learn to look in the spaces in-between; look through the cracks, for this is where the new light pours in. Go inside, into the darkness, and create the space for light to enter.

Thank you to Michelle Harris

The vastness of the Cosmos is encoded into every cell of your being. Your body is the home of your soul. Inside your home you will find the Cosmic Void.

Within all form is space.

Today, open yourself to the mystery; open yourself to the miraculous.

13 Wind

[Thursday 29 July 2021]

The Dog Timewave of companionship and guidance releases its form today and is converted into information; emotion is transmuted into data. The whole feeling of this timewave is harvested and fed back into the Matrix.

Today, 13 Wind, is a day where you flit from one thing to another, from one person to another – texting, facebooking, emailing.

Message the world.

Alternatively: You write up your recent experiences, you convert experience into information – a story, a report or a even a statistical analysis.

But the challenge today is also to slow yourself down a bit and to be more efficient. So do take some time off the internet today; release yourself from the computer, from writing and communicating, feeling emotionally free. By doing so, will allow your subconscious to receive new data from involvement with random activities.

You will still feel the need to do many different activities or things, but allow yourself to release all activity every so often.

Wait until you are impelled to do something useful.

12 Crocodile

[Wednesday 28 July 2021]

A good day for emotional intelligence and the awareness of how life is always supporting and feeding us.

The essential substance of existence is a supply of unlimited energy and unlimited sustenance. Today, look for the nourishment that life is supplying and understand that existence is, by its very nature, supply.

Artwork for LjL's first book,
The 21st Century Book of the Dead

The Dog Timewave can be understood by the mind today. 12 Crocodile says we cannot let the mind rigidly control our emotions if we are to receive and give nourishment.

Today we align our mind with the higher truth of the all-pervading omniscient consciousness, the background supply that is inherent within everything and exteriorised as everything.

Emotional Intelligence

Today you can find your own personal understanding of how you can move into enlightened acceptance of life as it is.

Crocodile is the face of the Goddess – nurturing and loving, yet jealous, dark and foreboding if scorned. Pay homage today to the Goddess and be gifted with a deep understanding of your needs and the needs of those around you.

Towards a Planetary Consciousness

As planetary consciousness emerges more strongly in the decades to come, one of the tasks and opportunities is the ability to emotionally feel the personal auric space, the body of light. This is the extended egg of the life force, or chi, that is integrating mind, body and emotions, and which also includes the imagination.

We will learn – and in fact have to learn – to be conscious of our perceptional filters and the interface with the collective environment, so that we can understand the energy, information and emotion that is flooding through us.

Image conceptualised by LjL,
created for him by Kookie Birjukov

The psychic fecundity of the highly charged plasma environment enables a whole new level of feeling, a higher resonant emotional connection. The challenge includes greater awareness of energy transmission – the totality of our output of emotions and thoughts – in order to regulate our magnetism. The totality of our output attracts same-same, or self-reinforcing reality tunnels. The challenge also includes consciously filtering out that which does not support or nurture our expression.

The gifts include the ability to feel greater unity, love and communion with all manner of people.

I developed a Lightbody practice in the 1990s, which is based on expanding the ball of chi to a full twenty-foot-diameter egg. This allows for a continuum of felt sensation from body to full personal auric space and the interface with collective energy and informational fields. The interface portals in the energy field can plug into any type of cosmic energy, so willed.

LjL's Map of the Liquid Lightbody

Many years later, I am still developing this ability. It is a slow process at present, but as the energy change accelerates, this will become much more available to a lot more people.

This may sound science fiction-esque, but really it is very intuitive and natural.

The environment is always offering us the nourishment we need. We will be able to absorb more light and synthesise more nutrients directly from the plasma as the planetary field awakens. Similarly, free energy technologies that draw upon the environmental energy are already available (We are not in Kansas any more, Dorothy).

It is the totality of human consciousness that is presently inhibiting the full development. If enough people become aware of the abundance of every kind of energy that is inherent within the planetary field, then no amount of suppression would or could stop the manifestation of a whole new civilisation.

11 Flower (Sun, Lord)

[Tuesday 27 July 2021]

A Door Opens into the Light

Today, the form cracks open to reveal the light. Following the light through the crack, a whole new universe appears before us, previously invisible but always present.

Main image for our Storyteller
workshop of January 2007

The world is made of light. We can use the broad-brush truth of the spectrum of light to describe reality.

The chakras correspond to the seven colours of light as a metaphor for frequency. Crown is White and Violet, Brow is Indigo, Throat is Blue, Heart is Green, Solar Plexus is Yellow, Spleen is Orange, Root is Red.

Flipchart by LjL

In my experience, I have found that generally speaking we are operating through two (or sometimes three) chakras at a time. At each stage of development of consciousness,* we have two dominant chakras open. That’s not to say we cannot have three or more open, but two dominate at any one time.

The manifest world is comprised of a different recipe of light for each form. Each form – be that rock, tree, car or human – is the ‘solidified’ form of a unique kaleidoscopic mix.

Chakras by Ero, image found here

11 Flower (also known as Sun or Lord) is a day where reality opens to allow us to read the frequency mix.

Our emotions are an expression of the flow of received light filtering through us, which then becomes our transmission of light. Our emotions are especially felt in the abdomen and heart, and yet they are as light all around us. We live in our emotions and see through the filter of our emotions.

The light of the aura is on a finer frequency than the light we can see with our normal vision.

We have our being and move around in the concentrated light near our body, but that radiates out into the whole cosmos as a whisper. In effect, we are also walking around in the collective light transmissions of human society.

We particularly pick up on those transmissions that resonate with ours. If we are in a group of people surrounded by incongruous light transmissions, our body of light is either not in resonance – which then creates the feeling of loneliness – or we do receive that light and feel disturbed.

Unless, of course, we can transcend the base frequencies and find a more subtle resonance with people on a higher level, which invariably means operating through the Heart more than through the Spleen or Solar Plexus.

Remember: All types of consciousness are substances.

10 Storm

[Monday 26 July 2021]

A day where you can experience the present manifestation of your emotional body – the whole tapestry of emotive scripts, wants, needs and emotional patterns.

Tapestry of emotional needs

If you can connect in a tangible way to your emotional totality, you can experience an unexpectedly refreshing, new or liberated feeling.

Storm is refreshingly chaotic; it disrupts to liberate. Day 10 in each timewave is the sense of something tangible. Today is a day that feels different – your emotional body twists in new directions and it feels strange but good as you have unusual connections.

So allow a new behaviour to happen. Go with the unexpected and see it as a liberating moment with potentially longer-lasting effects.

Today you can connect to your inner sanctum of peace, regardless of the flux state of the world (and of any external weather storms).

Today find the peace within yourself.

9 Obsidian (Mirror, Flint)

[Sunday 25 July 2021]

A good day to see the shadow and to illuminate the multidimensional mechanisms of nature that condition our moods and feelings. See the causes of those emotions.

Created by LjL

Today is a good day to wake up to the way our present emotional space – our total energy resonance anchored in our feelings – generates the story we are living.

The story in which we are living is a continuum that stretches from the ancient past to the far-off future. Our total energy frequency creates a timeline. Change your feelings on the deepest level and change the past – literally – and, therefore, change the future.

The Cyclical Nature of Time
Image from here

Aspects from your past return to your awareness today as you see the mirror effect of the cyclical nature of time.

A cycle of reflection ends today as you have a realisation of how your past reflects this moment and how your future will have a resonance with your past.

Waking up to the nature of time and the stories we create with others:
We live in the present with our companions and together we create our past in each moment and, therefore, also our future, which springs from our interpretation of the past.

Day 9 in each timewave is the day we wake up beyond linear time. 9 is a Master Number in Mayan cosmology and refers to the Nine Lords of Time (also called the Nine Lords of the Night).

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 9 Obsidian:]

Towards the Planetary Awakening 

The conclusive message of my lifetime’s research is that the human species is in the midst of manifesting a planetary consciousness.

We live in an increasing level of background stress, psychological and psychic pressure or urgency. There is an evolutionary imperative to reach and step into the planetary landscape of the mind.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin foresaw an acceleration of complexity towards an Omega Point. In a very similar fashion, Terence McKenna spoke of the acceleration of time, complexity and novelty to a Concrescence Point. From a purely materialistic point of view, Ray Kurzweil speaks of the ‘singularity’ and the convergence of all technology, implicating physical longevity and artificial intelligence. José Argüelles was a prophet of the shift to a post-technological society, where time is art. Jean Gebser observed human cultural and individual evolution awakening to an integration of all that went before and a subsequent trans-temporal state of consciousness.

‘You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience.
You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.’
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

All of these well-known pioneers are but the tip of the iceberg of a host of visionaries who in essence perceive the same general truth.

Barbara Hand Clow expresses a belief that we are moving to a nine-dimensional experience of reality. She finds parallels with Carl Calleman’s theory of the Nine Mayan Underworlds, which is a fractal view of evolutionary timescales.

The Nine Underworlds refer to nine levels of consciousness that exist within us. The multidimensional experience is something we already have and is more ordinarily explained by developmental psychology.

What I am suggesting is that every person already lives multidimensional lives – it’s just not recognised as such. The acceleration is the awareness of the totality of Earth’s dimensionality that is expressed through human psychological experience.

The essential truth is not explained merely by the exponential doubling of information, technological innovation or the increasing environmental crisis. It is, rather, the pressure to awaken to the planetary level of consciousness – not the global physical reality, but beyond that to the planetary field we live within.

Whether it’s the outrageous economic situation, or the fragile geopolitical world, the dynamic is pressing towards the big picture.

When you integrate all of the different strands, the array of issues and personal crises, they integrate on the level of planetary consciousness and the future planetary civilisation that is product of that consciousness.

Acceleration of Time

We are experiencing an intoxicating and bewildering acceleration to a new fundamental reality. The planetary stage of development is where all the contents of the different paradigms of science, spirituality and culture are experienced as contexts. We step beyond the acceleration into the ever-present toroidal flow of each moment, both experiencing the speed and chaotic relationships within each of the theatres that make up our world, and being existent in the stillness of the central channel.

Within each moment, we are simultaneously feeling the dense tapestry of emotion and yet are free from the full immersion that is experienced by those whose reality wholly belongs to just one religion or one paradigm – be that Catholicism, scientism, new-ageism, conspiracy-ism, shamanism or any other kind of singular truth mindset.

Modern shamanism is perhaps a more inclusive and malleable paradigm that comes closest to this new consciousness, one which en-souls complexity science within the immanence – the immanence of consciousness, the inherent totality of Earth.

Uncredited image found on google

The greatest challenge to this level of consciousness in its early stage of its emergence is loneliness. The conundrum is that once your connection to the whole planet grows more visceral, the comfort of membership you once had with moral certainty, materialistic science, or idealistic mindsets erodes. The ego still exits as an arising artefact that comes and goes in the flow of realities, as the freedom of the void and the exquisite aliveness and intimacy of existence simultaneously call upon you. The conundrum is the ever-present death and then recapitulation of the ego-self that is required for the liberation of consciousness on this level.

The mind becomes more lucid, and yet is felt as more restrictive, as complex concepts appear annoyingly easily and, by doing so, pull us from the simplicity we yearn to attach to. The challenge is nonattachment whilst engaging in the flow of unending death and rebirth.

The planetary level is not the same as the transcendental state of stillness of the ancient traditions, but is a more radical, more human experience of living within and being the dynamic movement of life.

8 Earthmover

[Saturday 24 July 2021. FULL MOON 02:37 UTC, 03:36 BST (10:37 HK time)]

Change Coming into Being 

Once again, take a breath and step into the space of courage. Commit to the positive change that is wanting to come through. As someone once said, ‘What you want, wants you.’

Composite created by Carey

Where is the evolutionary opportunity? Step up to it with faith.

Honour your emotional state, acknowledge how you feel, then search for the good.

Reinforce that which is good and what is seeking to establish itself in your life. Affirm your growth. Life is forever changing; affirm the change taking place in yourself. Identify the recent positive changes that are happening to you or within you – even if you feel that you are changing for the worse – because the truth is that there is always an element of positive growth taking place.

If you follow the 260-day pulse, you will start to notice certain mathematical patterns, such as Day 8 of each timewave being ruled by the same Daykeeper as the first day of the previous timewave. Thus, today being 8 Earthmover, we are reminded that the last 13-day period (a ‘timewave’) was the Earthmover Timewave.

Image found on Pinterest

Being an 8 Day, today is a day of committing your energy – or, we could say, incrementally committing more of your energy – to that which emerged during the previous timewave. The nature of change that surfaced during the Earthmover Timewave – which would have revealed an inherent evolutionary facet of your life message – is now showing itself again. You are being called to synchronise and integrate with it.

Image found on google

We get what we ask for. That is not always such an easy ride, because we are also aware of the infinite potentials that lie beyond this choice we have made... but it is worthwhile, enriching and deeply rewarding to see it through.

Do not try too hard; just observe the day and remember to commit your energy to what is progressive when Life asks you to do so.

Synergise (ha! ha! There you go, a nice corporate word!) your potentials within your present emotional reality.

Be Still and Listen

That is your wisdom talking to you.

7 Vulture (also known as Warrior, Owl or Turkey) is a great day to free yourself from the shackles of the mind; a strong, silent kind of day as you go about your business with simplicity.

Be still and come into resonance with your true self. Be like the Owl and the Vulture – patient and resilient.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by demands from the world, hold your energy, for within the maelstrom of being pulled by other people or deadlines, a magical solution and innovative opportunity can arise – if you just hold still.

Allow wisdom to shine through by dispelling the darkness of confusion through your resolve.

7 Vulture is a day of truth. Your truth can harmonise with others, without it being exactly the same truth. Today is a great day to be in your truth and to resonate with others.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 7 Vulture:]

Remember that the keynotes of the Mayan Sacred Calendar days describe a particular frequency within the day; they are not the representation of all the energies you live within.

The seven days of the week set a basic underlying pattern for society. Then we also have to consider the Moon and its position as it transits your astrological template, which heavily flavours your emotional ebb and flow. And then there are also all the other planets…

However, if you follow the 260-day pulse of the Mayan Sacred Calendar consistently, this pulse gets louder.

Why would you do that? Because you are the sort of person looking to become conscious of the subtle and the profound.

He also kept a daily personal journal, using pen and paper, and believed strongly in the positive power of writing things down. Here is a message posted by Laurence on 7 Vulture of 25 February 2015:
