What energy and experiences can we expect in April 2018?
The energy this month moves like a freefall. The feeling is that everything is moving very quickly and there is nothing you can grab onto. The things that you usually use to make the world make sense will not be available. The people you ask for advice will not be helpful. The rituals and practices you turn to will not work the way they usually do. The places you go for information or answers will not provide what you are looking for. You will find the feeling of sliding down a surface so slippery that you cannot grab onto anything. A slide like this can be joyful or terrifying, and you may find both emotions arising strongly this month.
This is a time to practice extreme grace in the face of fear. So much fear will come up for many of you. You are sliding in a direction that will ultimately lead you exactly where you need to be for your highest good, yet the journey requires a great deal of trust. It is as if someone pressed the accelerator button on your life, and there is no turning back until you get to the end of it. Rather than try to steer your path this month, you will need to just ride it out until you reach a natural ebbing point.
For April, the number one thing for you to do is to work with fear. Look at it, feel it, embrace it, and then be bigger than your fear. Do not resist it, do not ignore it, and do not pretend that it is not there. Resistance will allow your fear the chance to overcome and overwhelm you. Instead, face your fear. Look right at the thing you are most afraid of, take a deep breath, and choose to be bigger than that fear. Find a way to be a bigger, more generous, more gracious person than the thing you are afraid of. Do that again and again, every day, throughout the month of April.
Also, take very good care of your body and your own life. Just as if you were sliding down a slide, try to stay centered. Take deep breaths, pay attention to the things that matter most to you, and nurture the parts of your life that really matter. Try your best to let go of the things you cannot control or the things that you do not care about deeply. This is also a wonderful time to refine your focus and make sure that you are placing your focus on the things that matter most to you. It is a time to clean up your priorities and simplify the way you spend your time and energy. You cannot afford to have your attention stray this month.
