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.

Note from Carey: Laurence spent a lot of his life writing about all sorts of things that interested him and which he wanted to explore. 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:
|A Young Woman Wrting, |
after Jan Sanders van Hemessen,
'In my ongoing work with clients, particularly those who do a series of sessions with me, including shamanic work, I will always ask my clients to write stuff down as part of the process. Here is why: 'How Personal Writing Can Positively Affect Mental Health'.
