I am having a hard time writing my experience down right now. This post does a good job of describing what I am noticing and experiencing:
Energies of April - Jennifer Hoffman

and this one too:
April '14 Energy Update - Hope Van Vleet

and a hopeful look at April's energies:

“Sorrow prepares you for joy.
 It violently sweeps everything out of your house,
 so that new joy can find space to enter.
 It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, 
so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. 
It pulls up the rotten roots,
 so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. 
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,
 far better things will take their place.”



  1. I especially like Hope Van Vleet's Energy Update. It really speaks to me. Resistance is a biggy for also reminded me years ago "resistance is futile." But it sure is hard to first, remember, and second not resist. Especially when heavy stuff comes down.

    The Rumi is good to ponder, too. I hope he's right! ;-)

    Big hug,


  2. I am getting ever more subtle levels of resistance becoming obvious to me. I am for the most part stopped resisting because the alternative is just too painful. Yes, my deep wish is that I could have trusted more while caught in the thick of things. Yet that is a tall order, to fully allow our experience, even though we know we "should," when it is so heavy. The reason I can do it so much more easily now is because the observer in me is super aware of how painful the alternative is. That is very strong motivation. Wishing you the best, definitely intense energies this month. Happily I can see the goodies peeking behind the challenges. I hope you can too.

  3. p.s. from where I am sitting, i KNOW Rumi is right.

  4. P.S. Just noticed the photo of you and sweet. She's a lovely young woman.
