CREATIVITY AND A SENSE OF YOUR PURPOSE are going to be on the rise as you go through this coming year. That will be a general theme and April sees that come front and center once more.
If you are connecting with my Energy Updates, you are probably one of the innovators of these times and there are millions and millions of us around the world who want to bring this innovation to the world. Whether that is through our actions, energy or both.
These are strange, confusing, emotional times, and yet they are also the birth of a new era, and a long slow death of the old.
One of the big things that is going to come up in April is a sense of your purpose. Either how much you feel it, or how much you aren’t. Whichever, you are changing your sense of who you are and what you do in our changing world. It’s a period of review and renewal.
I find that when working in the spiritual growth community the drive to discover and connect with our purpose can sometimes be a way of masking or avoiding our feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Not always, but often this can be the driver behind ‘finding our purpose’. The truth is, we are stronger when we allow ourselves to sit with hopelessness and helplessness from time to time. As it is often our energetic undercurrents (grief, sadness, frustration) that are the very energies we need to sit and be with (or learn how to support), in order to rise into the next place we want to go, or way of being we want to experience. We can’t get from A to Z by bypassing all the other letters. Just as we can’t expand and change in life without experiencing some fear or hesitation about our next step.
So if you are an action-based person, or a real doer in life, and you don’t know what to do with yourself if you have a quiet moment, then for you there will be REAL VALUE in taking some quiet moments, even if this is frightening to do at first.
So when I speak of a sense of your purpose rising for you this month I’m not speaking about a purpose that is masking anxieties like this, but a whole new level. An UPGRADE of purpose coming into your life. And it might look completely different to what you thought you were going to be doing. But it will come with a sense of HOPE, VISION for the future and a KNOWING for many of you.
For those of you who feel stuck in what you are doing but don’t feel that you can currently leave it, consider how you can reinvent yourself. The energy of reinvention with regards to purpose is strong in April. You may be looking to reinvent how your life is going, or what is happening in your family or personal dynamics, and look and see what you can do or create to bring more upliftment to the situation.
It is a good month to lean into how you can take charge of the situation, rather than moan about how you don’t have anything. If we are in the habit of moaning, it can drive us down and put us in the victim mode for longer than is healthy for our wellbeing. Sure, we all have tough times but too long in the victim state makes us think we can’t create anything. What you have to do when you are in that state is that you have to remember it is going to change, life changes all the time, the relationships and the work situation you are in are going to change. And that you can INTEND, AFFIRM and look for support wherever you can.
Allow yourself to 1feel a sense of purpose in April that will have you asking some questions: What would I like to do with my life? What am I trying to vision? Who would I like to serve more? Who do I want to be now?
For many of us there is a certain emotional pattern that can bring us down repetitively; for some of us it is frustration, resentment, anger, depression, for others it is grief, confusion or sadness.
And the reason that grief is going to come up collectively for people in April is because of this identity change. As we as a world embrace a different sense of purpose, and walk into a different phase in our collective lives, grief can sometimes accompany us.
Grief can be everything from the state that locks you down, makes you feel like you are suffocating or in a death phase, through to a smaller passing moment of acknowledging the sadness that comes with change. Perhaps you are going to miss a person because you are moving house or have decided to change jobs, or recognise your life is changing and feel some sadness about moving on.
Grief can be a very natural acknowledgement of things changing but for others grief can lock into many other things in their psyche and in their energy field and take them down. So if you are someone who has been having a lot of grief really lean into the sense of yo weur purpose thios month. No need to get weighed down by the collective energy of shock and grief that is passing through. Affirm; “I release any emotions and energies that are not mine”.
And if you are someone who is feeling quite, alive and happy in their purpose don’t be shocked if there is some momentary grief that comes along. It’s part of the change process and being with your feelings.
THE PLANET IS CHANGING
There is a lot of change happening on the planet right now. And if you feel sad about something that you see in the world it is not going to feel good to sit in that sadness for too long. It is going to feel good to acknowledge the feelings and then take an action.
One such thing I saw this month was the amazing work of a group called Charity Water. I was so inspired by the founders story and the work they do, that I immediately signed up my company as a monthly donor. They are a fine example (and just one of so many examples) of great innovation, service, and a new energy in our world. Check them out here if you’d like to know more: https://www.charitywater.org
We can each do our thing, and as a collective, it all has a ripple effect. We are the many and if we activate our sense of purpose about what we can do to help shift things on the planet, then we are sending our energy in a direction of benevolence.
Much love everyone
