A brief point of global stillness occurred in the days that followed the March 20 equinox, which gave us the opportunity to breathe and recharge, in preparation for the hyper-energetic activity the month of April is bringing our way.
There is a very big difference between intentions and expectations. Intentions create an energetic commitment to your desired outcome. Expectations are constructs of the human mind trying to figure out how your intentions will come about.

Now is a time when you are finding that a year ends, and a New Year will begin soon. Such moments are important because they mark a change in your life; a change that can be conscious or less conscious for you.
When we think of sanctity, we think of holiness, something of sacred value. But, what is it that we truly value? Do we value the object giving meaning, do we value having a claim on something, or do we value possessing a possession?
It is the nature of the universe to expand. Change is inevitable and although you will all go through very natural periods of dormancy, there will also be phases of your life when it is time to release the old in order to make room for the new.
Take a deep breath. As you breathe in you breathe in the energy of all possibility in your life. Breathe out. Release limiting notions of what you can be, achieve, or have in your life. For with God all things are possible.

By all means set your intentions for life, but then release yourself from the bondage of expectations. Acknowledge your hearts desires, then in the same breath let go of how you expect they will come about.
