March 2012–Are you seeing your opportunities?

stalking opportunitiesThe main theme for March is Opportunity.

The action of this month and of the moving centered year demands you have a plan. Wishing and intending is not enough. You have to do something for what you want. The universe will respond to action this month and you can be incredibly productive and prosperous if you just get off the couch.

So if you want to get better at something or learn a new skill or manifest a new relationship, you have to take action.  This is a dynamic month of connectivity, exchange and movement and there is opportunity around every corner.  Say yes to what you may not have considered in the past, take a practical risk, and go for transformation whenever possible.

Whatever you think you cannot do, give yourself the opportunity to do it.

Because there is more stability this month, the physical universe has the opportunity to organize itself in a new way. In the wake of things coming apart in the last couple of months, there is a new order emerging that you may not recognize yet, but it feels right.
Go with your intuition. Your commitments and action will find solid ground this month and you will be rewarded for the steps you take beyond your imagined limitations.

Opportunity means a second, third and fourth chance to reconfigure, rework, rekindle and reconnect. Do not waste the month. Take action and do something.

What if what you try is not the right thing? So what? The universe has received the message that you are willing to try so it will support you to try again and again until what you have is different. The main thing is not to sit around and wait for something to fall into your lap. Be proactive with your evolution and growth. If your life if not what you want it to be, change it.

Once you decide to break loose of something that does not work, you will be amazed at the opportunities that show up. This is a new paradigm. It says believe and take action and then you will see the results, rather than see it first and then take action and then believe the results.

This is also the month we can consider a time of birth due to the spring equinox. It is a powerful equinox this year and truly supports practical transformation on all levels. Consider that this can be the birth of something new: a lifting of limiting beliefs and an expanded awareness of what is possible. You have seen in the past how fickle your reactions are. What has seemed impossible or not doable becomes possible if only you wait until the intensity of
the impossibility subsides. It is so with everything. Any strong reaction is charged with the fear of loss, the fear of failure, or the fear of death. And any strong reaction is connected to attachment of some kind. If you give it time, and wait long enough, the intensity dissolves and you are back at neutral and able to move the situation forward onto a new platform. This is a very good practice and will help to diminish the effects of impatience and martyrdom. Try it.

The body is a gift and a curse this month. It becomes clear that the body has to come along on this path of practical transformation or you won’t get very far. Your physical body is the most practical and solid tool in your toolbox for this lifetime and it will dictate what it wants and it will show you exactly where your work with it is. This month you will either take the relationship with your body to a new more inspired level or the body will take you down. It is important to give the body every opportunity to transcend the collective agreement about what it is capable of and to support it to reach another level of functioning. Listen to your body and don’t believe everything others tell you.

This is your opportunity to reset your relationship with your body in a way that works better for both of you. The opportunity is huge for healing, power, strength and manifesting. You should be inspired and committed to support the body in a new and more disciplined way.

The challenges this month:

>You could find yourself feeling deflated and overwhelmed and running old tapes of “It’s too much, I can’t do it”.

>You could fall into judgment and a lot of negative thinking. Your mind could sabotage feelings of well being by inserting the need to control.

>You could succumb to crisis and see it as bigger than life with no way out.

>You could be quick to anger, resentment and martyrdom with impatience just on the other side.

>You could just give up, not in a good way where you give it over to spirit but in a way that is victimized and blaming.

>You could become a couch potato, lethargic and apathetic with a bad attitude.

The opportunities this month:

>You could experience life from a different parallel.

>You could feel neutral about situations and events that were previously charged.

>You could reach new levels of power, understanding and transformation.

>You could manifest great prosperity and luck.

>You could turn all of your challenges into opportunities.

>You could eliminate fear through action and risk.

Helpful practices:

*See everything as an opportunity and remind yourself of this every day.

*Be patient, listen, and wait for things to shift in their right timing.

*Take some action every day that shows you are serious about doing something towards your intentions and goals.

*Make a plan and be willing to adjust it frequently to meet the elastic nature of the times.

*Talk to your body, pay attention to it, work with it and give it what it needs.

*Do something every day that shows the spirit you are serious about your practical transformation and that you are willing to move forward and into opportunity instead of backing away. Take a risk, don’t look back.
