The past week has been an interesting preview of what this month of showers and flowers is all about!
March seemed like such a harsh month … as though the grip of winter with its cloak of darkness and solitude didn’t want to let go. At times it seemed as though that Lion March came in with had eaten the poor little Lamb! I wasn’t so sure the Lamb existed! But March lived up to its duality … and as it left us, it left with a rush.
April moved in with a forward moving force … advancing all your hopes and dreams to a point where they can begin to materialize! Remember … the end of March was about ACTION! After we moved into the second half of March, Mercury went direct, and all the changes we had been working on the previous 6 months were ready to spring forward … to move to manifesting! Hurray!!
But is it ‘hurray!’? What made this past week interesting have been the attitudes or mind sets expressed by so many … hopelessness, anger, desperation, confusion, and an overall dissatisfaction with life. Why is that? We have finally reached the point during this year of transformation where we are moving forward towards those changes we hoped for, longed for, and asked for. What happened?
We all recognize that change is sometimes difficult to accept, and moving through change is usually more disruptive than the actual change itself. Even the smallest change brings with it the ‘ripple effect’ … everything and every one around it is effected in some way, shape or form. It is just the way things happen. And that ripple effect … that ripple that spreads out further and further from the center … will continue to move forward, in whatever direction it was pointed towards. Imagine it … you drop a pebble in a pool of water and the ripples begin to move out away from the center. They continue to move in that direction until something stops it or changes its direction. The force behind the ripple … that which moves the ripple forward … will continue to push the ripples forward, even though the ripples will eventually come to hit a cement wall. Changing the direction of the ripple is possible but takes a lot of concentrated effort to do so. The force behind the ripple has to be redirected.
The same is true about attitude. When you wake up in the morning feeling like a bear, growling like a bear, and behaving like a bear … the force behind your attitude perpetuates and expands forward. If you repeat a behavior or attitude in a repetitive manner, it takes on a ‘life’ of its own … it develops a force behind it. If your conversations are always about how ‘everything in your life is wrong’, then guess what? The force behind those thoughts and words will create, support and push forward the materialization of “everything in your life being wrong’. That is why it is so very, very important to be clear and concise in your messages to Spirit of what it is you want, need or desire.
The old saying, “Be careful what you wish for” is absolutely spot on!!! You can ask for happiness … but if you do it with anger and resentment, the emotional force will move farther faster in manifesting than the simple word or idea. Try this test … think of a time you felt really happy, and hold that thought for a minute. Now, think of time you were furiously angry, and hold that thought for a minute. Which one held the most energy? Which one felt like it had the most force behind it? Which one was easier to let go of?
April is about checking the FORCE behind your thoughts, words and actions. How many times have you said to yourself … ‘I can’t do this’ or ‘why can’t I get a break’? Statements like that almost always come true. Wouldn’t it be better to say something closer to ‘I’ll give it try! What can I lose?’ or ‘all good things come to those who wait’ or ‘something better will come my way’?
Because of this FORCE, April can be a month of great productivity, creativity, and enlightenment. It is a month of where you need to be aware of your surroundings … distinguishing the kinds of energies you want to be around, which will best serve you and which will help move and grow you in a positive and uplifting way.
Sometimes we get pulled into negative situations or dialogues. The people, places and things around us may lead us into feeling uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. The same FORCE behind these negative situations or dialogues may attempt to move us along this same path … finding ourselves swallowed up in some pool of negative energy. This is a time of setting boundaries, and being honest with yourself about what it is you want to achieve during this time of movement.
If you pay attention, this can be a very positive and productive month.
