The beginning of April starts us off with energy that has us turning inward. A beautiful time to sit in quiet meditation to reflect on your life's situation. Think of it as the rain before the rainbow.
This time you take internally will be very nourishing. It will be a time to help wash away another layer of patterns that you've become aware of that have served their purpose. Washing away these old patterns will create space for clear skies and a rainbow to lead you into the next phase of creating new habits that better support where you are and where you want to go.
While in quiet contemplation, you may receive guidance and insights that will require a new communication level for you to share with others.
This energy leads us to our theme of the month: Communication.
Communication is our connection point with others. Maybe we best communicate through speaking, writing, listening, or through an art form such as dance, painting, or poetry. This month will be a prime opportunity to strengthen our communication skills or a chance to learn new skillsets.
As you reflect on your communication style, one thing you can ask yourself is, am I actually saying what I want to be saying?
So many times, when people are connecting, it can be motivated out of our fears. Fear of abandonment tends to be a big one for most. The fear that if we ask for what we truly need or share how we truly felt that we will be rejected and how this could affect how this person is already providing for us.
We can change our wording, downplay our feelings, or say something is okay when it's not to keep conflict to a minimum and try to convince ourselves that we thoroughly spoke our truth.
When this approach happens, we tend to build a connection on an unstable foundation in a relationship of any kind because it may not be based on our authentic truth. Also, we don't get to see how someone genuinely wants to show up for us, so the response we do receive, we may always question or be in a heightened state about because we may never really know what the actual outcome of a situation could be.
There's no need for shame or blame when this happens. We hide our most authentic selves out of deep protection over ourselves, our hearts, our beliefs, or anything we deem valuable or sacred to us. We can't risk someone we care deeply about rejecting the most important parts of ourselves. Finding a way to nurture ourselves when it doesn't feel safe to share is critical in these instances. The moments you value yourself enough to support your needs are where strength, confidence, and personal power rise.
As the month moves forward, the being internal at the beginning of the month will begin to shift, and the energy and forward movement in life will start to flow more. Your inner strength will be building with insights, and you'll feel ready to communicate this with others.
You can try on this new direct communication level with people you don't have a strong attachment to. The threat of losing someone important isn't there, and the chance to build up your confidence in what you need grows. You start to build up more experiences where it's safe to speak up or know when not to and practice how to respond if someone pushes back.
Once you are ready, take the feelings or boundaries you need to share with a loved one, co-worker, or boss to them once you have what you need to feel secure in place. Know that you can't control the outcome, but you can control how you choose to respond. You build trust with yourself every time you stay genuine to your truth. From there, have faith in the Universe (God, Spirit, Source, etc.) to direct you to where you need to be. In due time you may find yourself surrounded by those who respect and value your opinions and needs or that boundaries communicated help deepen current relationships of all kinds.
This month is a time to clarify what you believe and why you think or feel it. It may be a month where challenging conversations need to be had. Give the Universe a chance to show you what is possible by staying true to your intuition, thoughts, and beliefs. And as you continue to grow and evolve and take in more information and experiences, be open to your truth continuing to evolve and change with you.
To support you with communicating, our Stone of the Month is Blue Kyanite.
