The energetic theme for May 2014 is all about Integration.
Lena Stevens from the Power Path sums it up best:
This is a month to integrate and assimilate what has come before as deeply as possible. In the last months you have been stretched, twisted, expanded, tweaked, changed, thrown curve balls, challenged, shown a glimpse of an incredible potential, and guided to keep going forward, putting one foot in front of the other. You have hopefully learned to trust spirit on a deeper level as you have been shown over and over that things just are not always what they seem to be.
Some of you have ended up a bit confused and are having difficulty with the resulting chaos. Some of you are wondering what’s next as if you are at the train station not quite knowing which train to get on. You may even be feeling somewhat scattered but with a deep desire to anchor something new and different and to feel the comfort of routine and reliability once more. There is a yearning for stability, security and predictability.
There are a lot of pieces to be integrated, not only the fallout of what has occurred and what you may have experienced in the past weeks or months, but a whole history of certain ways of being that are no longer attractive or desirable as you move forward. The old story does not hold as much weight and a new one has yet to emerge and come into focus. There may even be a sense of no longer knowing who you are by any intellectual definition.
If you took everything out of your closets and storage shelves and heaped it all on the floor with the intention of organizing it differently back into the spaces where it came from, you would be looking at chaos. This is what this time is like and the sorting and reorganizing is all part of the integration and assimilation that is so sorely needed now. The bits and pieces you wish to keep are all still there but they need to be integrated into a new pattern and a new configuration.
There is a desire to take the expansive and higher centered experiences of the past few weeks and to bring that energy back down to earth and integrate it in a way that is practical for everyday use. There is also a desire to gain some understanding about your process and about where you have been and where you may be going in your life.
What does INTEGRATION mean?
Integration is the reassembly of parts of yourself that are connected to all the experiences in your life that have made you who you are. Integration comes with understanding, learning and assimilating that which has been a mystery in your life. It helps connect you with a deeper wisdom about who you are and where you are going. It helps to bring disparate parts together in a new configuration of harmony and balance. It helps you to collect all your energy that has been held hostage by trauma and unresolved issues of the past. Integration helps you to understand the bigger picture by giving you a framework for a new improved story. Integration helps you to accept and assimilate great change.
During April you had access to some very powerful energies. Higher centered experiences were possible, and there were some real highs and there were some real lows and it was all very intense. For some of you there was so much change that you are now in the process of sorting out your life. The higher centered experiences always give a point of reference. They push the envelope and expand things out of their comfort zone. The pot of old patterns and childhood imprinting has been stirred up and the energy released needs to be assimilated and integrated. It is all part of who you are therefore it just needs to find a new order in your life.
Think of your experiences as a vast library of lessons learned. You are going back to review what is still useful, what you can use, what is yours and what is not, and to integrate that wisdom with new energies and inspiration that you have just recently connected with. The past meets the future and meets in the present. This is not an intellectual activity. You may still not understand what your next steps are or how to proceed in your life, but your essence knows and is guiding you every step of the way. Trust your inner shaman and you can’t go wrong.
How the month shows up
It will be very important to implement some routines and regularly scheduled practices to give you some stability and calm the instinctive center. Integration will happen whether you focus on it or not. Your job is to give integration time and space to occur. Be patient with yourself and others and focus on bringing beauty into your life. Spend time in nature or in your garden and make sure to give yourself some unstructured time just to hang out.
This is a perfect time and opportunity to reclaim your power from past traumas and to assimilate all that energy back into yourself. (this month’s Mp3 helps here) plays a big role this month and it is important to turn away from conflict whenever possible. Conflict, judgment, negative thoughts and emotions are not easily integrated and serve only to disassociate parts of yourself instead of bringing them together in a new order.
You can get through a lot of personal growth this month if you stay focused and don’t get distracted by drama or fear, which is never justified.
Relationships could go through an adjustment based on individuals integrating new ways of being in relationship because of the elimination of old patterns and new reference points of higher centered experiences. The most common theme will be a desire to upgrade and raise the quality of how you relate to one another. There is also an opportunity to integrate much more acceptance of diversity and to appreciate the differences that make things interesting.
Because of the desire for upgrading the relationship experience, those that do not offer something of a higher vibration will go by the wayside (unless they are karmic). Beauty is important as well as the opportunity for higher centered essence contact. Because of the massive amounts of change in everyone, we may see many second chances being offered and negotiated instead of ruthless discard of a partnership that no longer works so well. There will be a lot of work for marriage counselors as well as personal therapists because of the need for understanding and integration.
The main focus this month is on the earth. The earth will get lots of attention and be the subject of discussion, conflict, negotiation, study and discovery. In the aftermath of the intensity of April we may even see some earth movement and activity, which will then require integration and assimilation of change.
Your personal day –to- day environment will also require you to realign yourself with it in a conscious and positive way. Look around you. Do you like what you see? Is there anything you feel you need to change in order for your environment to support you now? Because beauty is a big theme this month make sure you are paying attention to beauty both in the greater environment and in your personal environment. You may wish to keep fresh flowers around and be drawn to more color and decorating than before.
What gets integrated here this month are changes in your personal belief system about the body and what it is capable of. Anything that has changed your view and what you believe to be true about the body will be integrated, assimilated and put to instant use. There is much past life information as well as imprinted patterns that are of the past and not being bought into anymore thus leaving room for an improved relationship and understanding of the body.
What you can do is always see your body as brand new every day without the limitations of old beliefs. Support your body in being capable, strong, healthy and adventurous. Say hello to it daily and ask it to support you. Since beauty and the integration of beauty as a frequency is important this month, keep that in mind as you pay more attention to your body and its caretaking.
Businesses will need to integrate new ideas into old models and old ideas into new models. There is potential for great synergy in bringing together many different energies and facets to create a whole new structure for business and economy. It is an exciting time for new projects as long as you are not attached to old models. For those of you from older generations listen to the young as they can see the future way better than you can.
Already there are new ways of working, creating partnerships, creative financing and much support for innovative and cutting edge projects that does not come from old institutions. Old structures cannot keep up and they will crumble. This is a good thing. What is important is not to discard the pieces that created them in the first place. Most of those pieces can and need to be integrated into a new foundation that will support the innovative idea or project. Never disregard the wisdom of what has come before even if the model is outdated.
