When a gusty winds blows, we’re unable to identify the changes about to occur because, like our ego, the wind can be dominant, insistent, and unrelenting. But even as the wind fills the air with ups and downs and twists and turns, it’s easy to accept the changes it brings. And we may continue walking into the wind no matter what it brings our way. But at times the wind forces us to stay on our toes, sometimes to the point of forcing us to avoid it altogether and take a different path.
No one tells us what path to take in life, but an inner knowing directs us away from the gusty winds of change. We trust our intuition and don’t question the authenticity of our actions even if there’s no reason or explanation behind them. We’re all walking into the same gusty wind. It doesn’t matter how we walk through it. Nor does it matter how others walk through it. What matters is that we reach our own unique destination.
The energy of this month is deceptive. This is one of those months when the ego has a tendency to manipulate our perception of the truth. This month it’s important to stay flexible and to make sure our motivations are not coming from arrogance, stubbornness, or greed. It’s also important to avoid projecting our own a mistaken sense of truth onto others. The ego will be in full force this month. It will motivate us to think we’re right about everything unless we question it and keep it in check.
Focus on the inner knowing, what’s in your heart, and whatever it is that’s driving your choices. When we feel the urge to control everything, often it’s out of a fear that needs to be overcome. Don’t doubt the truth, as long as it is motivated from your heart’s desire and inner knowing. The choices we make need to come from a place authenticity. Use your insight and give yourself the right to make any changes your life needs.
During months like this one, when the ego tends to trigger the conscious mind to worry and generate negativity, we need to recognize that we can choose to overcome this frailty of the ego. Talk is cheap. Take action. Step up and follow through with the choices and decisions you have made. Avoid getting stuck in the fear of unknowing. Like a gusty wind, this month may be filled with ups and downs and twist and turns, but you will breeze right through it if you’ll stay true to yourself and be flexible.
