What energies and experiences can we expect in May 2011?

The energy of this month is big. It is significantly bigger than the energy you have seen in the previous months. Every process underway gets bigger, including the hard things and the easy things, the comfortable things and the uncomfortable things.

This month will require courage because it takes courage to get bigger. Whether you are getting bigger in a positive way or a negative way, whether you are facing big challenges or stepping into a better life, it takes courage either way. This month requires courage from all of you. Remember this year is the year of preparation. You are facing all of the systems that will no longer work in the new world. As the systems that will not work are crumbling, it is so important that you keep your mind and attention on what you do want, on what you hope for on the best parts of the world and the best parts of yourselves. This month, that is more important than ever because the energy is getting so much bigger.

This month, you will find that it is difficult to avoid things. Anything that needs to be dealt with is going to come up in your face. It will show up right away. That can be challenging but, the lucky part of the fortunate thing about that is that a solution will also appear, a solution will also be right in your face. Often this month, the best solutions for your challenges are going to be the ones that are most obvious, most simple, and most available for you. You do not need to dig really deep this month. Instead, you need to roll up your sleeves and get working. There is so much that needs to be rebuilt in your personal lives and in the collective in order for you to really prepare the way you need to this year. May is the month that might have the strongest energy of things needing to get done.

How can we find the greatest benefit with this energy?

Something you can do this month to really work with this energy is to very consciously choose optimism. Some days that will be easy and some days it will not, so you must remember that optimism is always a choice. Your attitude and your outlook and your perspective -- they are always a choice. Even if you have longstanding patterns that make it feel like you do not have the choice, you can always change your mind about how you see the world.

This month is so important that you take accountability for that choice and you choose optimism, you choose happiness, you choose to see the light even in the midst of a great deal of shadow. If you will do that in your own small way, you will make a radical difference in how world events go because it is just like the satellite pictures of earth at night when you can see the cities and the towns where all those lights are on. One little street lamp on your street might seem very small compared to the vast earth. If enough of you have your lights on, you actually light up the sky. We are talking about the streetlights as metaphor for the real light inside you, which are your joy, your truth, and your love. Your light is required at this time on Planet Earth. You are going to find yourself creating a huge difference for the better in everything around you if you will consciously choose to have an optimistic attitude about what is happening in your life and what is happening in the larger world.

A second way to benefit from the energy this month is to continually look for something to do. This is not a month for sitting around; it is not a month for feeling and thinking deeply. For every feeling you have, ask yourself, "What can I do about this?" For every idea you have, think to yourself, "What can I do about this?" For every wish or hope you hold in your heart, think to yourself, "What can I do about this?" If you see something that needs to get done, do not walk by. Stop and do it along your way. This is a month to be busy, to be active, to be very much engaged in the physical world around you and accomplishing things in the world.

Some of you will be called to really cleaning up your own personal life. Some of you will be called to really cleaning your house or fixing up your neighborhood or finishing projects in your personal life. Others of you will be called to much larger things. Some of you will be called to make a donation or to volunteer for an organization. Many more of you than usual this month, are going to be called to do things in the world around you. It is still so important to find a way to get something done. Even if your idea about something really big is too overwhelming, find something small that you can do today. Start taking the steps. This is a month for activity.

Is there anything we need to watch out for or avoid this month?

Yes. This month it is especially important to avoid spending a lot of time with people talking negatively. It is important to avoid getting in those conversations where you feed each other's negativity. Avoid gossip. Make sure you do not spend much time talking, especially talking in a way that is disempowering. That is one thing to avoid, and yet it is important to spend time with people. This month it is important to get out and be connected with people in order to get things done. But, in that connection, it is important to avoid people or situations where you share your negativity, where you fall into negativity or gossip together.

Another thing to avoid is being over-stimulated. Avoid watching too much of the news this month. Avoid taking on too many things at once. Try your best to keep it simple and spend large amounts of time focused on one thing. This month, you should be active and busy but you should not be over-stimulated. So make sure you choose carefully where you want to place your focus and really dedicate segments of time to that focus, rather than bouncing around from one thing to another.

Amidst all of the activity that needs to happen, and amidst all of the changes happening in the world around you, May has calmness available. That will come if you avoid too much information. This is a great time to turn off your cell phones when you are not using them. It is a great time to close off your computers or turn off the television and spend more time in nature, spend more time with your loved ones and spend more time getting things done focusing on a project. So look for a sense of calmness and avoid over-stimulation.

Is there anything else for us to know about the energy of May 2011?

This is a month when really everything that you need to do this year is being done now. Other stages of your work will come in later months but there is nothing to wait for this month. So if you find yourself waiting for anything, ask yourself, "What can I do now rather than wait?" If it seems you need to wait for something this month, usually what you think you are waiting for is already available. You are just looking for it in the wrong location or you are expecting that it is going to appear in a way that is different than it really is.

This month, do not wait. When you are waiting for something, pay attention to what you could be doing instead of waiting. How that thing you are waiting for does exist for you right now, it is just in a different form than you expected. Find a way to work with that and trust that the part that you want later will come about in a way that will be best for you. But you have got to work with it as it is now in order to get there. Otherwise, it is possible to really enjoy this month. This is an intense year and a year with a lot of work in it.

But the overall energy of this year is very positive because individually and collectively, this is the time when you are finally not going to tolerate unhealthy, oppressive systems in your lives. This is really a year for liberation. Though it comes at a cost and it takes a lot of work to achieve it, this year it has a positive growing energy even though growth can be difficult. Amidst all of the work you are doing, allow yourself that sense of freedom, a sense of relief as things are in motion and be kind because the changes are difficult. Be kind to yourself, be kind to others and do what you can to be connected with the world around you in a way that feeds your spirit rather than breaks you down.
