It’s always a blessing for me to connect with you in this way. We have so much to catch up on, so let’s get right to it!
Refining Our Relationships
For the first three weeks of April, the main theme that will be coming forward is relationships.
These relationships include the ones we have with family, friends, lovers, and colleagues, and especially, the relationship we have with ourselves.
This will be an excellent time to clearly see what kind of relationships we are experiencing.
Do our relationships feel fair, balanced, expansive, enjoyable? Are we feeling free and open in them?
Or is a bit of fine-tuning needed to bring in more balance and open exchange?
These are the types of questions that can be quite helpful now, in helping us gain clarity on how to continue building nourishing relationships that thrive.
If you’re feeling that some of your relationships could use a bit of refining, the following process can help support you in that.
The Mirror Process
Step 1: Think of someone in your life whom you desire to improve or refine your current relationship with.
Step 2: Write down all of the ways you think that relationship may benefit from some refinement or improvement.
For example: Better communication, greater appreciation of one another, or a more balanced exchange of love and support.
Step 3: Look at what you have written, and ask yourself, Are the items I listed something I want the other person to change within themselves, or are they something I would like to improve within myself?
If the answer is the latter, you now have clarity on what you can give to yourself in order to build a strong and nourishing relationship with yourself.
That is vital, because our relationship with our own inner self is the foundation from which we experience all relationships.
If you noticed that your mind wanted to make it about the other person, please continue to step 4.
Step 4: Ask yourself: How does it serve me to change or control how others treat me?
Usually the core answer to that question ends up being something about safety and protection.
The desire to change and control others is a survival pattern the mind has identified with, as a result of forgetting what our Spirit has always known: that It—our true essence—can never be controlled, because it is infinite and eternal.
It is everything!
At your core, you do not really desire to control anyone. That impulse is just the mind’s way of protecting itself.
Doesn’t it feel lighter to know that?
With this awareness, you can then begin to understand that whatever was being reflected back to you in the relationship was just a mirror of how you have been treating yourself.
These are patterns that exist on both a conscious and an unconscious level, as a result of your upbringing, and personal experiences you‘ve accumulated throughout life.
Step 5: With the awareness that all of the things you wrote on your list were just things you desire to give to yourself, go back over the items on your list, and read them out loud in the following statement:
“I desire to give myself _______________ (fill in the blank), so I now choose to give myself this.”
Repeat the same statement for all of the items you wrote on your list.
Step 6: Thank the person you originally thought of, for being the mirror that showed you what you weren’t fully giving yourself.
Step 7: Thank yourself for being so open and willing to understand that the whole situation has only ever been about you and you.
Step 8: Make the decision to give yourself everything you ever thought others should be giving you, and give yourself that on a daily basis.
This is you, coming back into your power!
As you become the one who gives to yourself everything you thought others should give you, you will find that your happiness and fulfillment quotients magnify Big Time!
You will begin to notice that the people who are unable to do this for themselves will start to lovingly move into the background of your life, while those who can do this for themselves will increasingly begin to show up for you, in extraordinary ways.
The energies of the second half of April will make available to us a heightened desire to express ourselves in new ways.
We will find ourselves feeling more aligned with the person we know ourselves to be at our core. We may begin to show up a bit differently than the person we thought we were—the one who dimmed their light in order to be something they‘re not.
The inner changes we are experiencing at this time are beginning to project themselves as big shifts in our lives. These shifts can occur in areas such as career, location, personal growth, home, and relationships, among other areas.
By the end of April and into early May, we will notice that steady progress has been made when it comes to expressing ourselves in a way that reflects our true self.
The Greatest Gift We Can Give
The greatest gift we can give to the world right now is to choose to operate from our true authentic self as often as possible.
When we consciously step into our authentic self, we empower and inspire others to step into their authentic selves.
This creates a domino effect, stretching across the world in ways that raise global consciousness.
This is exactly what we have been seeing for the past several decades.
One by one, people are awakening from the long slumbers that have kept them attached to outdated ideas, and the structures and systems that kept them looking outside of themselves for ways to express their inner power.
For so long we’ve felt helpless, standing on the sidelines and feeling we could not do anything about that kind of disempowerment.
But now, by stepping into the most authentic and honest part of ourselves, we have become empowered.
We can see right through the illusions and distractions.
One by one, we are becoming free.
What an exciting time to be alive on this planet!
