4 Rabbit (Star)

[Monday 31 January 2022]

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)

[Sunday 30 January 2022]

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

Doodle by Carey

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...

Canterbury 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.

Envisioning a better future

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. 

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.

[* Laurence maintained that the 2012 era began in the 1980s and will last well into the 2020s.]

2 Skull

[Saturday 29 January 2022]

Separation of Energy

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

Mandala painting by Carey

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.

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.

Define Your Space

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

[Friday 28 January 2022]

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

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)

[Thursday 27 January 2022]

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)

[Wednesday 26 January 2022]

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

Composite created by Carey

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.

Image found on google

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.

The incoming energy is facilitated by communication on every level, be that phone, 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.

10 Crocodile

[Monday 24 January 2022]

Feel and accept the nourishment available today.

The Cornucopia of Life, graphic by LjL

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.

Ventnor Botanical Gardens, Isle of Wight

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.

Today is 10 Crocodile in the 260-day Mayan Sacred Calendar, which is just one of 17 interlocking calendars used by the ancient Maya – although this calendar could perhaps be considered the heart of their calendrical system.

9 Flower (Sun, Lord)

[Sunday 23 January 2022]

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

[Saturday 22 January 2022]

Today, make the commitment to break some outworn patterns.

Photo with heartfelt thanks to my sister Caroline

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’.

Novelty on the Horizon

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.

Resonant Reflections

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

The World Out There, by LjL

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.

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.

5 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey)

[Wednesday 19 January 2022]

Find your truth and hold your centre.

LjL stepping forward
in his truth and
with confidence

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.

4 Eagle

[Tuesday 18 January 2022. FULL MOON 07:48 HK time]

Map your coordinates. Think and visualise spatially.

Composite created by Carey

Where are you on your journey?

The drama of life presents itself in its four essential elements. You see the essence of four directions and four forces from an elevated view. Questions arise in the mind – ‘Which direction should I go in?’ Get your bearings. Find your location, place yourself in the cosmos.

Image found on google

All around you is a living environment. A true orientation involves a communication with the directions, the immediate environment and the larger environment.

Shamanism offers the tools for direct communication with the environment and your essential orientation. The simplicity of the medicine wheel and its evocation of the spirit of the directions veils its extraordinary power. If you have never worked with the directions in the medicine wheel, I urge you to take some time to explore it.

Medicine Wheel image from here

It is simple. Anyone can do it, and the doing of it empowers you. The directions orientate you instantly on Earth and in multiple dimensions.*

Today is a good day to locate yourself on your path.
