7 Rabbit (Star)

[Tuesday 31 May 2022]

Sparkling with radiant connection, you flit from here to there, spreading the love – or at least some abundant and fecund creative ideas. A sparkly day, a resonant day, meaning a day that mirrors the totality of existence.

Joy, by Laurence James Lucas

Today is a fractal of the cosmic light of creation. Enjoy the abundance of today – the natural inherent abundance – without too much expenditure. You do not need to get carried away with money, partying too hard, or any kind of excess.

Be in the abundance by allowing the light to shine through you.

However, there is a shadow. Rabbit is associated with the drunkenness of Venus, as well the beauty, fertility and love. The shadow is the attraction to everything, the allure of the excitement of this, that and the other, which can be superficial, or worse.

Energy can feel scattered today, which can be disconcerting if you try to control it. The great problem is that if we get disconnected, the feeling which can arise is that everything is sour or unsatisfying, as the mind and the heart are constantly distracted. This can lead to a vapid depression, where nothing seems to fill the hole inside, as we lose the ability to anchor the self and to concentrate on any one thing.

If that is the case, simply focus your attention on retaining your centre today.

However, I do not want to overemphasise the shadow, for today truly is magical. Just be the radiant light.

Retain your centre

6 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

[Monday 30 May 2022. NEW MOON 11:32 UTC; 12:32 BST; 19:30 HK time]

Today has an organic flow about it. A good day to surf, holding and releasing as you move through the data stream.

Turning the Wheel, by LjL

A day of finesse and subtle responsiveness. Stay attuned; be alert yet relaxed. Move and be alert to the moment when it is time to hold your attention steady.

A good day for concentration as you are able to control yourself, setting limits whilst sensing the organic flow of energy, enabling you to switch your attention to the next appropriate activity.

Surges of euphoria can arise today. Allow them through, but without grasping onto them.

A great day for relating to people as your communication is responsive, fresh, eloquent and interesting.

5 Skull

[Sunday 29 May 2022]

Today is a day of strength, realism and positive detachment that allows you to make changes where necessary and/or operate in the more visceral realms of material reality.

Cut back, detach from the crowd, come back to your core, and be a little cynical if necessary.

Or: Be at the centre of your group and be detached enough to be a facilitator for your community.

Enjoy some backbone attitude.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 5 Skull:]
I would like to add some more to 5 Skull, which to some degree is applicable to all Skull Days.

5 Skull is a good day to observe yourself interacting with the superficial, the bare-bones material frequency of ego, money, shiny metal toys, the instant comforts and the allure of even the most banal of what the world has to offer.

Skull Days allow us to have a compartmentalised experience. For someone who is spiritually awake, the observer can be present as you take part in the glossy impermanence of the surface.

And remember that occasional full-blown indulgence can release the heaviness and self-importance of the super-ego – the inner priest, as it were – thereby enabling a subsequent deeper connection to the profundity of the ground of consciousness.

4 Serpent

[Saturday 28 May 2022]

Own Your Self-Interest 

We need you to survive and to be healthy. Listen to the survival instinct today as the foundation for your own power.

Respect your power to influence the world through the natural transmission of your consciousness; respect it and harness the vitality of your body. Be grounded in the body.

Today, being Day 4 of the Wind Timewave and ruled by Serpent, your role as a communicator and disseminator requires you first to be firmly planted in the seat of your own life force.

Put your roots down into the Earth, through the ‘souls’ of your feet.

To be effective, remember: Exercise, sleep, get proper rest and nutrition, and yet also desire and honour your power impulses, whilst respecting the personal limitations that are required to contain the excesses of that power impulse.

The ego should not be crushed, rather it should be harnessed.

Today make sure you give yourself the physical foundation for confidence.

3 Lizard (Seed)

[Friday 27 May 2022]

A good day to examine our agreements with life and our intentions.

'Behind the Scenes (aka The Ancestors,
or The Keepers of Templates)', by LjL

Lizards work on the template level of reality, exploring the dream realms to unearth the intelligent essence that underpins reality. Lizards are connected to the fullness of the latent abundance and the interconnectedness of all things; they gather up everything in their awareness in order to understand the Seed of Life.

Lizards are associated with preparation and the underlying patterns.

It is through the agreements we make – often unconsciously – that our Enchanting experience is evoked. We create our reality within the context of the collective construction, the collective agreements.*

This, and the image below, by the incredibly
talented Tatiana Plakhova at
Complexity Graphics

The Ever-Changing Platform of Your Life
You have an essential destiny to become conscious of, but the details of that destiny are not all worked out – life is dynamic. You have a template for this incarnation, but it is not set in stone.

Today, see the shifting intentionality within existence that is created by forces of consciousness larger than ourselves. Enjoy the vitalising force of an intelligence so vast that we cannot grasp it, but which has the interests of our life within its knowing.

Your personal intention and your choices for your life exist within a dynamic framework.

Today be open to the idea of new intentions and new agreements. It is not necessary to set absolute intentions, just witness the flux of energy within you that relates to what you desire and what you would like to experience.

[* Note from Carey: Laurence called these collective agreements the Enchantments of Life; see the Enchantment pages on our portal website for more on his map of the evolution of human consciousness].

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

[Thursday 26 May 2022]

Be at home today in between the polarities and between spaces.

In the Heart of the Forest, by LjL

The existential nature of life is sometimes (a time like today, for example) a comforting place in which to surrender, so that we are deeply at home in the midst of eternity.

After yesterday’s activation of 1 Wind comes the space, the silence and the void. Feel the pull of opposites and live betwixt them.

A good day for intense contemplative feeling and for finding the crack, in any form, that lets in the light.

Today is Foredawn, Dark House, In the House, Dark Night. It is the space before sunrise; it is a day that evokes an opening in the heart, a sense of the romantic. But, as it is seductive, it can draw you into darkness…

Today we are seduced by the mystery. Without letting the mind draw too many conclusions, feel into things but set boundaries – and do not let yourself get drawn too far into anything dark.

Composite created by Carey

Draw upon your imagination to investigate the potentials of what you are working on or desiring for your life. Feel the space that you are creating for that which is manifesting.

This can also be taken quite literally to include physical space, including how to create an ambience, perhaps with two contrasting colours and a third subtle colour. The physical interiors – our living spaces – reflect and evoke our psychic space. The clever use of colour can keep a space alive so that energy can enter in between the contrasts.

1 Wind

[Wednesday 25 May 2022]

Get ready for a new 13-day timewave that begins today as the Wind (Ik) archetype activates.

Breath of the Divine,
by Laurence James Lucas

The Wind God brings fast decisions and clarity of mind, and activates your quick responses to all things.

The next 13 days can bring you clarity about what you have to say to the world, or clear communications with loved ones.

The Breath of the Divine will send you a message today – a sudden noise, an angry word, a disembodied spirit whispering in your ear, a gust of wind or a vibration from an animal. Any of these can activate you. Wind activates without sentiment; Wind asks us to be detached.

Wind God Stribog,

Wind can polarise an issue to push you further. Sometimes we have to see the world in black and white before we can proceed.

A timewave of powerful messaging, twittering, phoning, emailing and the spoken word. Be a messenger and a receiver with a ‘Yes, let’s do it!’ attitude.

The power of wind,
our (old) path after a typhoon:
Sambal wagging to say,
'Yes, let's do it! Let's go for a walk!'

Alternatively, your communication exchange might be solely with the Source or with your own subconscious. And remember: You are a transmitter and a receiver.

Today, do those yogic breathing exercises.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 1 Wind, first posted on 1 Wind of 21 February 2013:]
My morning practice seemed very clear, despite having had wine and a meal out last night. A powerful Chinese spirit (it was suggested I was in the presence of a Master) visited me during my meditation.

Of course I will investigate this presence, rather than unconditionally accepting him – and it was a ‘him’. But the feeling was extremely peaceful, warm and powerful. The spirit certainly evoked the Wind Spirit resonance.

With this type of energy, we have to learn to recognise it, but not embellish it with emotional projection. Remember: Wind asks us to be detached.

13 Crocodile

[Tuesday 24 May 2022]

13 Crocodile is a powerful day.

which he called 'The holiest of holies'

The principle of 13 is movement in all directions. We have 13 major articulations in the body – imagine them all being used simultaneously! You would have a mad dance that would release your psychic energy.

Image found on google

Today, being a 13 Day, is the release of the timewave energy, a day of letting go and opening up, a spiralling out of the feeling and consciousness of the last 12 days. The soulful signature of the Muluc Timewave (Water or Moon) is powerful and yet dissolving today.

Crocodile is the primal and also watery state of base consciousness – undifferentiated, engulfed in the Goddess, irrational, filled with chaotic latency and stirring turbulence, ready to birth... The energy of the day is one of opening, expanding and surrendering to receive powerful feminine energy.

Surrender to life today and it should treat you well.

The soul’s need for nourishment is revealed to you today. Your soul, and the souls of those around you, have a heightened sense of the need to be fed with more primal connection and with the ineffable universal love and nourishment.

The Water or Moon Timewave ends today with this great release and surrender.

12 Flower (Sun, Lord)

[Monday 23 May 2022]

A great day for a deep understanding of your life.

Central Sun,
by Laurence James Lucas

You are master of your soul; this is your sovereignty. Today, access the light of the soul to aid in the unfoldment to come.
Utilise your imagination and your mind to understand your life directly from within yourself, in order to perceive the complex systemic unity of things as they stand within you.
The understanding of the soul and soulfulness is available today. A good day to express the subtle; to write poetically, yet with meaning. The subtle has power today – light rays can instruct you and teach you substantial truths. Use the mind and imagination to empower yourself with sacred connection.

The imagination is a two-way plasma mirror, not just a screen for projecting fantasy upon, but also a receiver from anywhere in the omnidirectional realms that you can reach with your intent.

Understand the expansive intelligence of metaphors or symbols with full clarity today.

Tatiana Plakhova, of Complexity Graphics,

Today, refine your world and assume an elevated perspective beyond the clumsy and gross understandings of the default reality. Utilise your inherent ability to see the cohesive and powerful intelligence of the beautiful and the subtle.
A day to decode the light that radiates from your soul, for you are a living library, a reservoir of extraordinary experience that can be accessed via the imagination, which is shaped by the mind and piloted by the impulse of the soul to know itself.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 12 Flower:]
Planetary Consciousness and the Noosphere
Understand that the Noosphere, planetary consciousness and planetary civilisation are natural outgrowths of the world we live in today; the Earth will flower into a planetary civilisation.

Consciousness, the self, the world and experience evolves by stages. The planetary stage is the obvious and natural stage of development for our world – it is upon the far edge of our horizon.

The planetary stage of our culture will emerge from the subtler levels of reality into density. The cosmic influx has already recalibrated the contextual space of the Earth’s energy field. This much is obvious to me and today allows one to understand the power of light and consciousness.

Translation from one domain to another takes time – this gives the illusion that the power of change starts on the physical level. It does not. Power always comes from the larger context of reality first.

11 Storm

[Sunday 22 May 2022]

Your energy crackles as you move through the electrical nature of novelty, adjusting the templates of your soul.

Go with the freedom inherent within this day. Stay responsive to unexpected turns and enjoy the liberation.

Enjoy flowing through different states, from internal moments of personal freedom to social connections.

Enjoy the liberation of letting go of expectation, necessity and stasis. Let it be what it is.

Day 10 in the timewave can feel quite heavy and contained, while today – being an 11 Day – allows us the energy to move again, as the solidity and any perceived blockages dissolve. Today you can shake off any turgid emotions and feel energised by new experiences or variants.

Today is great day for inner connection and for opening portals between levels of consciousness.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 11 Storm:]
The Importance of Subtle Energy Work
Sentiments such as ‘Show me the results’, or ‘Show me the money’, conjure up a rigid confidence in the objective world and a cynicism towards subtle energy work, which then blocks the inner connection.

This can lead to one of the biggest problems we have, which is being completely out of alignment with our soul, therefore obstructing its natural impulses.

Although – it must be noted – people can also become hyper-inflated with self-importance through constant inner journeying or channelling, without deeper understanding, or the relentless interpretation and discussion of synchronicities and their own intuitive impressions.

The truth is, while it is important to engage in the external world, taking the time to connect to the rich inner world of the psyche is indispensable for emotional health. More than that, working on the inner dimensions is a truly effective and essential way to manifest a reality and experience that is more benevolent, abundant and wholesome than the normal everyday world experience.

The results are generally not instant. Subtle energy changes are most often stepped down through the various levels of density in accord with a gestation cycle that mirrors human gestation – from conception to birth (approximately 260 days).

Some of Laurence's favourite shamanic tools,
which he used for moving consciously
between the worlds

The Sacred 260-day calendar that we follow here is an aid to consciously connecting to the potentials that are seeking manifestation through you. Such things as shamanic healing, or ceremonially planting intention into your unconscious (another way of saying planting a seed idea in the subtle mental body), are stepped down from mental to emotional to physical over approximately 260, 520 and 780 days.

Each process of stepping down energy brings it more tangibly into density and actual experience. Inner work is very powerful, but most people – in fact most of us, a lot of the time, due to daily necessities – do not take the time to connect our subtle actions of the past with the present.

My experience from working with clients and from observing my own life and that of those around me is that powerful emotionally charged intentions or desires manifest in around two years, or a bit longer (often in alignment with three spins of the Tzolkin, that is, 780 days). The exactitude of the manifestation depends upon clarity, but is watered down by the many counter-intentions we invariably hold.

Using Law of Attraction principles to control life with absolute will is flawed because of the multilevelled nature of the psyche and the accompanying diversity of desires we hold.

However, this does not mean that we should not attempt to align with subtle energy changes and set clear intentions.

The most important point is to connect to the inner world through conscious journeying, visualising, shamanic ritual, or other forms of subtle energy work, so that we then align automatically with the soul’s intention for our lives.

10 Obsidian (Mirror, Flint)

[Saturday 21 May 2022]

The shadow of your life and the world is revealed to you.

ET in the Shadows,

What is the unavoidable issue within you?

The world appears as a semi-transparent hologram, reflecting your inner feelings. A good day to understand the power of our projection.

Today is a good day to see the fundamental issues in your life. Today they can be seen and they can be seen with transparency. You will see your complexes, but also see through them to a deeper level of truth.

You might possibly encounter a shocking perspective on an aspect of your personality or your being. Do not worry, for this is not the whole truth of who you are, just some of the truth.

Obsidian Mirror is the Daykeeper sign of multidimensionality and the mirror reflections and refractions of light that give us the experience of density.
