After an incredible few days welcoming people into my new Change-Makers’ Club, I turned to my cards for inspiration. Moving towards Easter is usually such an exciting time of year and even though the excitement is muted this year, it doesn’t mean that we can’t focus on the good happening all around us. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative that the good is all we focus on.
The first card I drew was Ostara, an Anglo-Saxon Goddess closely linked to the Spring Equinox which later became the time of year Christians celebrated Easter.
Whatever your beliefs are about this time of year and what it represents to you, we are at a point in our calendar where we are expecting a miracle. Whether that is linked to new life, the birth of something or someone new, the regrowth of nature or simply welcoming the new season, we are experiencing miracles all around us.
Right now, with everything that is happening around the world, we have to have supreme faith that we will get through this. Easter is a reminder of the ultimate test of faith and that this too will pass.
Expect a miracle. Be curious about what that miracle will be. By looking for miracles, even tiny miracles, it is easy to see them and be thankful for them. You know that where your attention goes, energy flows, so focus on looking for miracles all around you and see how your days improve.
The next two cards that came up for me were ‘endings and beginnings’ and ‘let it go’. These cards are intrinsically linked and it’s easy to see that it’s time to say goodbye to anything that’s not serving us.
While we’re letting go of the old our only option is to move with the changes that are happening around us. When we feel as if we’re drowning in fear the temptation is to cling to our lifeboat of familiarity. That won’t save us.
If you have found yourself saying ‘we’re another day closer to things getting back to normal’ then you’re clinging on to a past that has already gone. There is going to be a new normal and it is up to you whether that is something you are going to be excited about or fearful of.
We need to let go of the old and follow the example of Mother Nature to embrace the new. The poison from the fuel we have been pumping into the skies, the poison from the plastics we have been pumping into the oceans and the poison from the toxic relationships that we have been pumping into all life on earth are now recalibrating.
We are all playing our part in this incredible change. By staying at home we are supporting ourselves, each other and the planet. This week, as we look forwards to Easter, the full moon was in Libra. A full moon is always a time for letting go; to release and to forgive. With Libra’s connection, this includes a focus on negotiations and partnerships.
Are there conversations that you need to have? Are there partnerships in your business or personal life that no longer serve you?
What do you need to release? Whom do you need to forgive? What, or who, do you need to let go of?
What will these changes bring you?
If you’re struggling to answer these questions, I have a powerful meditation that will help you to restore balance and focus on your own wellbeing as you navigate the answers. You can find it here. We are in the middle of a global transformation and no amount of clinging to our lifeboat of familiarity is going to make it go away. It’s happening. We can’t escape it.
Just as the caterpillar thought that life was over, it transformed into a beautiful butterfly.
This is the transformation that you have been looking for. It might feel uncomfortable, it might not look the way you thought it would but you can choose to focus on the good in every moment. Give thanks for every miracle you see. The world has not stopped you being prosperous, only your mind can stop us being prosperous.
Surrender to the change and look for your miracle.
Love and light,
