What energy and experiences can we expect in April 2017?

The energy in this month is very intense. It looks like a sharp mountain peak with a steeply inclined path to the top. The summit is a teetering, precarious point with a steep slide down to the bottom. The energy of this month is volatile and difficult to see in advance. The way the month will unfold is very reactive to what has happened in February and March.

This month has an all-or-nothing configuration. On one path, it could be a very regular-seeming month with not much happening. On another path, everything you might imagine can happen. The worst things can happen or the best things could happen. Whether the intensity is obvious on the surface, nothing will be regular this month. The volatility of the energy will lead to profound shifting at every level.

The one thing that is certain about April 2017 is that it will be beneficial to be prepared for anything. Be prepared for an emergency in case you encounter an emergency. Be prepared to help your friends and neighbors through an emergency. Be prepared to help your loved ones if they face hard times, even if you are not facing hard times. Be prepared to be a helper.

The opportunity to be a helper may come in a physical situation, like providing supplies, or in an emotional situation, like being a good listener or a soothing friend. Be prepared to be a helper in the spiritual realm as well. Be prepared to be able to send massive amounts of light and love wherever it needs to go. Be prepared to hold prayers for those who are struggling. Plan ahead for the month of April to be a time when you take very good care of yourself. Keep your calendar relatively empty. Do not book appointments that involve giving a lot of yourself, because you will be called to give a lot at the last minute in ways you did not expect. Plan ahead to have a lot of empty time or a lot of times when you will be doing self-care. April 2017 will be a time to keep a good exercise routine, a good regular meditation routine, and a lot of extra sleep. Plan your meals ahead so it is easy to get food throughout the month. It is likely you will be occupied helping with whatever comes up in the month, so make sure you have all of your basic needs attended to in very easy ways in advance.

Are there any particular activities that will serve us best in April 2017?

Watch for the work you are called to do this month. As this emerges, develop a dance between caring for yourself and caring for others. Cultivate practices that provide self-care in quick and portable ways, such as taking deep breaths, a quick meditation, or drinking a glass of water very slowly. Practice some of these things that can be done anywhere, in any situation, to give you a quiet moment. You may find you need to harness quiet moments to calm, center, and nourish yourself so that you can continue to do the work of peace building.

The work may be very dramatic. You may be in a place where there is some kind of physical disaster to attend to. Yet most of you will be in a situation where you do not have those physical emergencies, but you do have intense suffering surrounding you in other forms. You will be called to hold emotional support. Make sure that you are able to go inward to care for yourself and then return to the work throughout the month. Do not burn out this month, for the work of peace building will extend far into the future and you are all meant to be part of it.

Is there anything in the collective that we should watch out for?

It looks like the potential for physical emergencies is higher than at any other time in recent history. This includes potential for terrorist attacks, natural disasters, or accidents. You may encounter episodes of electrical power outages or people losing their access to water and other resources. You may find violence breaking out as resistance to social progress reaches a boiling point.

The way to be prepared is to, first, take good care of yourself. Be sure you have an emergency backpack ready, keep your eye on the news, and when you are out in the world, keep your eyes wide open and your intuition active. If something does not feel right, leave the area quickly. This is not meant to scare you, it is meant to help you feel empowered so that you can be in the world without a nagging sense of fear. If you are prepared, you can relax.

A second way to engage with the potential of the month is to cultivate a practice of faith. Your higher self and the higher powers always ensure that you will be where you need to be in order to be the most helpful, in order to answer the calling that you were born to. If you were called to help in a particular situation, you will be drawn to help in that particular situation. If you were called to be protected from a particular situation, you will not be there at the time. The only way to live at peace with your mortality is to find a path to faith in something greater than your ego. Develop a way to trust your guidance and stay active in the world.

The thing that will matter most this month is how you respond to the calling to be a helper. You are all peace builders in training. Embrace every opportunity to rise to the occasion and be a helper.

Is there anything else the Keepers want us to tell us about this month?

Even as this very sharp, unpredictable, and volatile energy, there is a massive amount of Love in the world right now. This Love is being generated by you. You have never been more powerful. You all are incredible beacons of Love right now.

Whatever actions you take, make sure they come from Love. Whenever you get lost in fear, anger, or hatred, take a deep breath and return to Love. You have been preparing for this for lifetimes. Keep your spiritual practice alive. Think of the people you love, stay in contact with the things that you love, and nourish yourself as you do the incredible work of moving humanity forward. From above, you look like beautiful, shining stars made of Love. You are doing the work that you were born to do at this time. Do not run away from it; walk right into it with an open heart and an open mind.
