“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” —Lao Tzu
“Leadership should start from the https://www.sensesofthesoul.ca/blog/2017/07/03/the-consequences/bottom – these are simply people who see that things need to be done and they start doing it…the ones who are committed…the world is full of people now who are seeing the something needs to be done and are starting to do it without the government’s permission or official advice or expert advice or applying for grants or anything else, they just start doing it!” – Wendell Barry
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” —Margaret Mead
Well here we are on the other side of the Looking Glass! Knee deep and sinking up to our neck in the reality of our “real” selves; we see the light, the shadow, the bits that make us cringe and glimpses of our greatness. At the same time the energy of the Universe is on warp speed and the changes in and around us are becoming faster and wilder. Our body and mind hyper vibrate as we dump our past emotional wounding and trauma at an immense rate; things seem unstable and messy, our reactions sometimes over the top and we are feeling more unsure of ourselves as this unbalanced purging and emotional aperature occurs. What we need to focus on for May is this: any negative emotion, including anger, grief or depression, is an invitation to look deeply inside ourselves and at that which we have rejected in ourselves. This is important because as we heal ourselves and find universal truth, the destructive tendencies of humanity will now rapidly redirect to creation.
This month we must apply ourselves to what we truly value, make hard choices and let the rest go. Our past human history has taught us that we must conceive a different way of living in the future and now is the final transition to a co-creative reality. If we surrender during May’s Full Moon (May 3rd/4th) to deeper psycho spiritual transformation our anger will teach us boundaries, our grief will teach us to release regret so that we can move on; our anxiety will compel us to find freedom from the box we have caged ourselves in, our discontent and depression will push us to change, our wounds of abandonment and betrayal will signal a need for a renewed love of self, and our addictions will reveal a suppression of our own uniqueness.
If we desire a world based on co-creation, respect, love and harmony then we must stop wallowing and be courageous enough to do something about it! There is great change on the horizon and we can feel it! A life worth living is about exposing all that no longer serves, taking risk, alchemizing and creating – which is messy, but is also vibrant, exuberant, passionate, and genuine. So think about what you need to face, what is still unfinished inside you, who are you without societal or familial expectations. Stomp you feet, shout from the rooftops, figure out what gets you really fired up and get on with the process of living life passionately! We can no longer afford to rein ourselves in, fit into society’s Matrix mold, have certainty and be politely composed! Find people who align with your passions and share, talk, join, co-create, engage, and participate!
There is no more I – only WE! We can create a ripple of change with our actions, our love and the power of our talents from the Bottom Up – the world needs everyone to contribute in their own way if we are to be creatively responsible and exist as ONE. We have the choice and opportunity to take our addictions, our hopelessness, our bitterness, our regret, our anger and pour it into a fierceness for life! Together, we can do this and revolutionize humanity!
Physical and Psycho spiritual symptoms and predictions for May:
I often ask my clients, “How deeply do you want to live your life”? And now the Universe is demanding the same of humanity. The month of May brings forth an intensity that will knock you off your feet and generate mental and emotional imbalance if you are not aligned with your Higher Self, your integrity and the courage to live your life with depth and authenticity. Let go of more of your materialism, your blame, your agenda, your negative emotions, your past and your self-centeredness. If aligned in this way then more passion and optimism will renew your inner fire plus abundance will increase tenfold. The first half of May will see you slowly finding clarity, but by the end of the month you will see clearly where your soul wants to take you on the next phase of your earthly journey. LISTENING TO YOUR HEART, HAVING PATIENCE, FAITH AND COURAGE IS KEY as you carefully plan and execute, never ceasing in your labours until the pull of your soul is satisfied.
With the amount you will need to work through this month it is helpful to breathe, face what you fear most, take it one day at a time, and cross one more thing off your “to do” list. You will be asked to stretch beyond your perceived limitations, and bravely go where you have never gone before! If what you need to do scares you then it is the right thing for you to do! Make sure you rest when you can, find stillness, nourish yourself and allow support from others so that you can fully engage in the challenge. You will still be pulled down into stormy despair and frustration along the way, but use that to catapult yourself to the next level of higher consciousness and completion of tasks. Use being “pissed off” and seeing your truth to move forward and make decisions! ROAR!
May also brings the second Mercury Retrograde of the year (May 19-June 11), so this is a time to finish up current and past projects, review details, contemplate and carefully communicate with compassion and integrity (so watch your words!) so as to avoid misunderstandings and blow-ups. As your emotions ebb and flow so will the physical symptoms in your digestion, your heart function and your quality of sleep. You may also experience headaches, head pressure, eye issues, skin issues with rash, itching, break-outs, memory issues, fatigue – all due to purging, letting go and downloading new co-creative coding from the Universe into your DNA and cellular memory. Our bodies are swiftly changing to align with the new reality which is 5th dimensional living. Hence the increase in physical symptoms and rapid diagnosis of disease since 2012.
