Whenever we are giving channeled information about the month or year, please understand you have a choice in how you wish to participate with it. If we discuss, for example, the energy of this month and how it may not flow easily, you can choose to move with the vast consciousness of humanity, or you can step out of that field and into what Abraham calls the Vortex.
The Vortex is a space of divine connection to Source and of the love vibration. Individuals tend to be sucked in by the surrounding energies when they become tired, distracted by physical plane activity or just zoning out. By focusing your awareness on love and divine connection, you do not have to participate in what generally goes on with the masses. If you choose not to plug into the general energy, you can use our information to understand what others around you will be doing.

With that in mind, April can feel like a call to action to get things done and move forward, but the overall energy can be difficult and doesn’t flow easily. You may feel pressure to accomplish goals that have been dragging on over the past several months and have a desire to create more abundance and stability. This is because Mars is moving forward and you will want to be productive. Also, the U.S. is a Warrior country, always wanting to push forward and doesn’t like sluggishness. However, you may find obstacles in your path this month that may lead to frustration and impatience. Impatience causes the personality to react rather than think it out. It is vital to stay patient and calm, especially this year, if you want to affect the changes you desire. Acting rashly may cause more problems. By the end of the month, you may feel like you’ve taken threes steps forward and two steps back. Obstacles can come in the form of individuals in your life who stubbornly hunker down a position and won’t compromise. Others may want to pressure you into taking sides in an “us against them” stance. This energy is more intense at the beginning of the month and lightens up around April 20th.
On a national level, the current soul age shift from 7th level young to 1st level mature soul heats up. This soul age clash will be seen as the Republicans (mostly young and baby souls) striking back at Obama and the Democrats (mostly mature souls, some old) passing the Health Care Reform Bill. Innovative reforms continue to challenge the status quo as humanity works through the global paradigm shift. The best way to navigate these energies is to remain calm and centered in Spirit. Watch that you don’t get pulled into a power struggle. If the nightly news gets you “all whipped up in a lather” against certain individuals, you may want to stop watching it. Polarizing on one side or the other only creates more opposition, separation and more of a problem.
From the perspective of the Michael Teaching, an Attacker-Victim Monad, or relationship, is created when both parties believe the other side is wrong and has hurt them. Both sides view themselves as the Victim and the other as the Attacker. Neither side takes any responsibility for helping create the problem to begin with. The rationalization is, “They did something bad to me, and I’m going to get even because I am just protecting myself; and my actions are justified.”
Instead of getting caught up in karma and judgment, try looking at the circumstance at hand by using the soul age system of the Michael Teaching. The five soul ages are infant, baby, young, mature and old soul. Older souls are not better than younger souls; they are just on a different place on the circle of life. The purpose of the Teaching, including the soul age definitions, is to assist individuals in understanding themselves and others without judgment, which hopefully leads to tolerance and unconditional love. Soul age is reflected in every walk of life, including politics, lifestyles, and religions/spirituality. Understanding soul age will give you huge clues regarding one’s behavior, beliefs and ability to accept the differences of others. It may help you understand why you don’t fit into your family or why working with a company is so uncomfortable. There are probably different soul ages at play. One of the biggest differences between the old soul and all other soul ages is that the old soul is about karma completion, not creating new karmas. The rest of the soul ages are still manifesting karma at their level. If you want more information about the five soul ages, you can go to Michael Teaching
On the flip side, April can bring breakthroughs in consciousness. You can experience deeper levels of understanding about yourself and others. Something that has seemed confusing for some time may now become crystal clear. Intuition and psychic abilities are enhanced. This a great time to revitalize your body with a spring cleanse, new yoga practice, and getting more sunshine and fresh air. By April 17, Mercury retrogrades providing us an opportunity to rethink our values. You may surprise yourself by changing your current direction to something entirely new. There will be many parallel realities breaking off and merging, so hold on to your hat!
