Merlin – Wisdom, Teacher
Time for a new mentor or teacher to come in. Share your wisdom and use it to teach others. Pay close attention to repetitive thoughts as they are divine insights.
April's big healing energy may have had you addressing a lot, including patterns of control, inner child healing, resistance, disempowerment, expectation and disappointment, releasing attachment to false senses of security, as well as individual and collective grief. Stick with the process as it will continue to come in waves, as grief does. Spirit reminds you to take time to self-reflect and care for your energy, leaning into the support of your Guides and Spirit helpers.
Last month's focus on emotional awareness will become this month's focus on emotional acceptance. It will help you ground into your new normal. You may feel like you're taking steps backward, as though you were the teacher now forced to be the student again. In one way or another you are cycling back to something. Do your best to embrace the Benjamin Button vibes. It can feel frustrating, but in truth this return isn't a step back but preparation and clarity for a new step forward. It's a chance to re-evaluate, re-learn, and ultimately renew.
This month of five carries an element of freedom and Spirit shows me being a caterpillar in a cocoon banging on the inside wall of it wanting to get out and just be the butterfly already. But healing happens in stages, and the more you surrender to the current stage, the better the outcome will be. Exhale, allow and trust.
This month will bring clarity in preparation for more freedom in the future. There will be a focus on mental health and healing your perspective. Meditations for the crown and third eye chakras will be beneficial. And it is highly likely you will make some big decisions regarding your path and how you want to move forward in your life. This will happen in all areas but decisions around work and career will be particularly heightened so you can expect some revelation in this area. These may be things you may or may not want to return to, changes you want to implement, or new paths you want to embrace. For example, you may commit to a completely new career path or area of study, create a retirement plan and decide it's time to step back, or evolve a current skill set. The number five will show up as a sign of encouraging change, and the number nine will show up as a sign of validating a decision or path. Spirit reminds you that it's okay to change your mind. And it's never too late to make a healing change that supports your well-being.
On a larger scale, the questions Spirit really wants you to ask yourself are: What do you really want for your future? What do you want for your kids? Your grandkids? The planet? What healing changes are asking to break through? Intention is everything. Once you know what you want, connect with Spirit, and set your intentions with love. Reconnect with the power of your thoughts and follow through with the power of prayer.
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month. I also share any energy themes and thoughts as I feel guided.
