February 23, 2022 - Take Advantage of the Energy All Around You!

Energy - positive or negative, expected or out of the blue - is the topic of the month. Every day brings dynamic new energies with it, and you should not only be mindful of that but take advantage of it whenever you can. Is the time right for enacting long-thought-out plans, going after dreams that may have seemed unattainable in the past or pursuing new directions, whether on the home front or in your chosen profession? Considering the times that we're still going through, when our liberties and freedoms are still being unavoidably curtailed, many of us are anxious for something new. This energy will affect us all, and in unexpected ways, such as a new job, a new home or even a new romance. And I want you to be prepared!

If there's one thing that I've learned in all my years as a spiritual adviser, it's that energy can go either way: Some energy may bring us a little excitement or a sense of satisfaction; while other energies might prove to be overwhelming and even involve worst-case scenarios. Regardless of the nature of these changes that we're all going to face, the key is in how to deal with them by making the most of the positives and smoothing out the rough edges of any negatives. How we proceed is going to be critical for our peace of mind and may even test our commitment to our own personal growth.

If you need a tip on preparing for any new turns of events, I've always found it helpful to grab a pen and paper and jot down a list of pros and cons, so that you, at least, have a starting point for sorting out the things you want to invest your energy into or things that bring you nothing but negative energy that you want to purge from your life. For example, my pros list might include my peaceful and therapeutic garden, my great working relationships with people and, of course, my four-legged feline friends. My cons might include a friendship I know has been draining my energies in the most unproductive ways, the unfulfillment I sometimes feel from missed opportunities, and even dissatisfaction with a romance I felt was going nowhere. Putting your concerns in black and white will give you a visual reminder of the things you're grateful for that you want to nurture, as well as the little crosses in life that you now no longer want to (or have to) bear.

As you use this swirling current of energy in your day-to-day life to work on both your pros and cons, you'll experience a whole new level of satisfaction. That's because you'll be tapping into the resources the Astral World has given you, knowing that you're using them to your best advantage. Anytime you assert yourself by enacting change in the areas of your life you feel need it most, you'll experience feelings of joy and find avenues of achievement that you'd never thought possible in the past.

Remember, each new day offers new opportunities and chances to excel... You'll benefit the most from taking advantage of them.
