March contains the moment when you realize that you cannot do it alone. It is time to allow others to bring their own gifts and skills into your life. You do not have to do everything. When you allow others to participate in the creation, not only will it nourish you but also it allows for a fully embodied manifestation with complex flavors and coloring.

We need others to pull us out of the trenches we work ourselves into. We can become so attached to the struggle that we push and strive but never completely arrive.

To philosophize is to speculate and imagine. To participate is to get into the clay and mold that reality into being. It is the participation that creates the feeling of fulfillment. It is in the doing that you find the magic. You are being asked to become a participant in the creation.

This month you will be aware of the direction you are going. Whenever you arrive at what you believe is the completion, you recognize that the constant evolution of life is once again showing you more options and opportunities on your journey of self-awareness.

You are consciousness right now. Awakening to your natural state is a choice. When you choose to align with your essential self, you will discover that all around you are the elements that will allow you to manifest what you need. But you also need to recognize those people and allow them to help shape what is attempting to emerge in the creative process.

There is tremendous power you can feel from those who have journeyed deep inside and have come to the place of acceptance and knowing of who they are. This month, look into the mirror. Really get to know yourself. If you are not magnetizing what you need in your life, you have disconnected with some essential part of your authentic self.

Enlightenment means that you are not enslaved by others’ opinions or by your own ego. Authenticity is an upsetting force to some, a relief for others. When you are presented with someone just being, you either find great attraction to him or her or you will feel not good enough and attempt to step away and become invisible or ignore them. When you feel that urge to step back or to disappear, instead just stop and stay present. Feel the disturbance in your energy field and lean into the discomfort. Allow the authentic presence of another to break you out of your negative self-talk. When you allow yourself moments of awareness and clarity, you will discover that no situation, community, society, person or nation can actually confine your spirit.

Do not be afraid. You are connected right now to your spiritual family. Allow others to support and help you. Together you can step out of the limited illusion in which you are experiencing. It is your commitment and choice that will allow you to do it now.

Have a fabulous month.
