Joyfully Follow Your Path, But Only Your Path

Dear Ones,

Many of you are allowing your days to flow with few expectations knowing that astrological conjunctions may or may not personally affect you and that there will be many more astrological and human events that will, as you move further into your new being.

But if you are among those who follow such events with a bit of apprehension – shades of your 3D beliefs when events were often fearful – please know that fearful events are no longer.

It is well and good that you follow the stars much as you follow the seasons of your loving Gaia. But following the stars does not mean every event will negatively impact you, any more than every spring flower produces pollen that triggers allergies. If such were true, spring would be thought of with dread instead of loving anticipation.

Your stars are indicators, but not concrete forms you have to adhere to consciously or unconsciously. Just as you may either love spring or find spring rains and flowers inconvenient or uncomfortable.

But then, do you realize that if all are anticipating a certain event, such as the result of this April’s astrological aspects, that event will occur? As you increase your inner-power, your anticipations become creations.

So it will be that many will awaken this April because you, as a group, are projecting/creating such.

This week’s channel is not necessarily about April’s astrological events, but instead that your power is much more evident and available than before. The phrase, “be careful what you wish for” becomes more important daily.

Prior to this new earth, you had a buffer between your wishes and creation. For many, that buffer continues for personal creations that do not seem to happen as you want. But for global pieces, your combined power is much more rapid and focussed than you now imagine.

Of course, that concept immediately sets off those who wish to save the environment or stop wars, hunger, financial deprivation or any other world cause that seems RIGHT. But just as individual care taking is of the past, global care taking is care taking and of the past.

If you feel the joyful urge to help cleanse earth (which is no different from doing so for a friend or relative), please continue. But if you are doing so because you feel you should, you are moving you, those affected and Gaia off pre-determined paths.

It is no longer appropriate to do what you think is right for others – whether a friend or Gaia. The only role you can be certain of is that which your inner-being directs you to in love and joy.

Shoulds, care taking and victimization are no longer part of your being.

Many of you feel the need to help those following you. If you are a scout master, such is an action that continues the 3D care taking roles you played for eons. But if you are a wagon train master, you are on the right path. And the only way you know which is true for you is what gives you joy.

Perhaps you have not yet reviewed the new you and are merely replicating the you of yesterday. Or perhaps you have a new direction – in 3D you might have been extremely narcissistic – and now you feel a need to provide assistance to those awakening. Only you know – and your only barometer is how you feel.

Which returns us to the frustrations and rages of many towards those of you who do not care take earth or others – even though you have no inner need to change the system, to do so. There are those who do. Please allow them to find their path which will be difficult if you are trudging along their path in a martyr role.

Unless your full heart is in your actions, you are most certainly delaying those who feel a loving need to help. Address those issues that are important and loving to you. Others will do the same. This transition plan is all-encompassing. Your only role is to find and follow your joy.

You pre-programmed yourself for a specific action or actions. Those subconscious programmings can now only be ascertained by your joy. In the near future, you will know on a conscious level. But as yet, you are not fully aware of who you are and what you wish to achieve. For not all pieces of this transition have been revealed to you.

It is as if when you learn to read you do not know what types of materials will be of interest to you in the future – fiction, history or technical materials.

Even though your new earth areas of interest are becoming more refined everyday, they are not yet concrete.

It is not appropriate for you to do something because you believe you are a bad person for not doing so – that you should do something about the environment, those starving, politics, education or any other area. Only do so if it gives you joy. Otherwise, you are not fulfilling your role and you are blocking the path of those whose role it is.

This is not the age of shoulds, care taking or victimization. This transition is a paradigm shift you created before entering earth in this lifetime and many others.

Allow yourself to know you are fully capable of completing your role – but only your role.

Do not jump between paths. Do not feel the need to slow down so others can catch up. Focus on your joy and all will fall into place – even though such seems counter-intuitive for many now. Not because it is wrong, but because it negates knowledge you assimilated on earth the past few eons. So be it. Amen.

Wow Brenda,
Thank you so for much for this. What great timing.
I am an environmentalist and just realized how much I sacrifice for it. I don't live in the city I want to live because it's in the desert. I don't buy the things I want to buy, I feel bad if I don't bring my personal coffee cup and use a paper cup, I don't eat meat because it's not ok, and I love meat! All of these choices have nothing to do with joy whatsoever, especially when it comes to choice of city to live in. I feel like I'm not living to the fullest and honestly I don't feel like being environmental anymore. This is going to be an interesting future as I'm surrounded by environmentalists who think we had enough of joy abusing the earth and now we have to do things that are not fun. Thanks so much for writing such a wonderful post lots of food for thought.
Light and love

Great article as always!

I did not read into it that it's ok to just put up your hands and say "The planet's just one big trash can! I'm going to pick up my picnic blanket, trash and all, flap it in the wind, and let the earth take care of it! Watch that beer can go!" It's all about being mindful. I'm not going back to sleep. I'm still going to the Japanese consulate in San Francisco this Friday to "campaign" (not protest) for alternative energy other than nuclear. I'm not doing it because I have to, I'm doing it because I WANT to.

Hi Barbara,
I'm so proud of you for daring to be you. What a wonderful beacon you are for all of us. Isn't it amazing how guilt played such a big part in our lives for so long? YAY for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,
PS I used to be so enmeshed in social services and social issues. Last week a friend said her dream was to feed the hungry of the world. Nothing lit up in me at all. I realized that was no longer my path. Like you, I've changed so much in the past few years.

Brenda Hoffman 9th April 2014 3:35 pm

Hi Connie,
You've got it!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least part of your path is environmental issues. WONDERFUL.

It's kind of like selecting a college major isn't it? I'm no longer interested in engineering, I want to be a math teacher. We all have the right and responsibility to find our areas of interest through our inner joy and light.
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Your words are reflective of what my Spiritual Director once told me, "The most loving thing you can do for those you love is to do what is most loving for yourself." I have tried to live this truth and have confirmed its verity! I also believe this applies to the changes we all hope to one day see in our world......if we want the world to change, WE have to change first. We have to love ourselves and treat ourselves lovingly....setting healthy boundaries, exercise tough love where appropriate, and STOP thinking we have to fix everyone. The only person we can fix is ourselves, and then be a model of "fixed-ness" that might inspire others to do the same for themselves.

All love!

Hi Brenda,

Always find light, comfort and support in your words.

Like you mention in reply here, I spent the last 6 years, or so closing my very successful business because I felt a strong call to give something back. I changed directions completely from the selling/buying business world and researched working with the UN, developing a non profit business plan to platform NGO's to aide the world and those most in need. Have volunteered much in time over the years to various ochritable organization and have had a few business consulting gigs.

While I still believe in the value of all this, then again I felt my path turn, this time to creative artistic and spiritual expression. This has been such a healing joyful experience of growth for me. I have no idea where my path will lead next, and financially has been a struggle. Still I will follow intuitively as I am truely most joyful when I stay in the moment just appreciating God, nature and universe' s expressions, open to the gift of how they move and touch me. It has been such an incredible time of blessing...God provides.

Hi Brenda

This message is so on target. Thank you. It's difficult to leave 'shoulds' and embrace 'joy' instead. I've been having dreams which are telling me (in some pretty metaphorical ways) to take responsibility for what is mine to own. To not allow judgements from others to impact me, and to live this life with authenticity.
Every time I think I may have this figured out, another opportunity for growth and a 'lighter' perspective rears its head. Sounds like we are all experiencing similar. How nice to be in such good company :)

This channel is a great, clarifying reminder.

I'll start by letting go of the martyr mother role. Thank you, Brenda. Big Hugs. :thumbs:

Brenda Hoffman 10th April 2014 12:10 pm

Hi Lauri,
I so agree. You stated the direction of our new beings so well. Thank you!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 10th April 2014 12:14 pm

Hi Spiritdiver,
Isn't it amazing how we seem to be changing direction in so many ways as we discover our true selves? Or maybe it should be new selves. I'm guessing I will change direction at some point also, but I don't know when or how yet. Like you, just open to the experience and having a delightful time discovering me.

Kudos for daring to be you in all your shining glory.
Blessings, Sparkles and Love,

Brenda Hoffman 10th April 2014 12:17 pm

Hi Paula,
I think many of us are experiencing new directions as we move deeper in the new beings that we were meant to be. And I know we're in wonderful company as we do so.

Moving to your own beat and negating shoulds and have tos is not always easy but somehow it seems to turn out as you've been experiencing - lighter and brighter. KUDOS!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Hi Tiff,
That mother martyr role is just so heavy isn't it? I did husband martyr role for awhile until I couldn't anymore. Guess what - he stepped up to the plate in shining colors.

YAY for us all. Down with care taking, martyrhood and victimization and up with joy, light and fun!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Tiff 11th April 2014 8:09 am

Yes, indeed.

Blessings, Love and Sparkles right back at-cha.

Conni99 11th April 2014 9:29 am

Dear Brenda,

Thank you for responding to us all. And thank you for what you do. I didn't make that clear in my post. You are amazing.



Brenda Hoffman 11th April 2014 3:02 pm

Hi Conni,
Thank you so much.

I really feel we're all amazing. Channeling is just easy and feels so right for me now.

Each of us has a piece of the puzzle or a thread in the tapestry. Mine seems to be sharing my channels now...and I do have fun doing it!
Blessings, Sparkles and Love,
