Every month I try to tune into major themes that are present within us all. One thing I sense is that April might feel a bit like the doldrums. Elimination is present as we work on saying goodbye to both physical and emotional aspects of our lives. When any type of transformation occurs, it can be depressing for those who heavily carry their old selves and situations. The other aspect, however, is about resetting our limitations and extending our reach, which is far more uplifting. We expand our potential, or what we believe is our potential, and can make the decision to feel better and reach higher. April is a very inter-dimensional month, as we integrate all parts of ourselves to work together for our own expansion.
This month’s message is provided by Archangel Barachiel, the Archangel of Blessings and Chief of Guardian Angels. I lasted channeled him in August, speaking of his playful and joyful energy and his sense of humor. Connecting with Barachiel is like being wrapped in an energetic hug, as he helps us find the blessings in our current state, thereby helping us attract more joy in our lives.
Greetings Dear Ones, I am Barachiel, this bringer of joy, here to guide you today. I invite you now to get into your physical body, to rejoice in it, to have pleasure with it, to enjoy the physical experience. You are moving past this emotional healing you have worked on. Think of it as laying bricks down, and now you are stronger. You may still be working on this, and that is okay. Know that wherever you are, your journey is meant for you at this time.
That energy of melancholy is around us this month, and that comes from self-judgement. You believe that you should be doing, being something else, nay, something MORE, than you already are. We often say to you, you are powerful, you are infinite, but in this human body, it is difficult to realize that, to accept that into your consciousness. (although your superconsciousness already knows it, and that is the part of you that receives our messages.)
What I see now is that you lack oxygen. Oxygen is more than just molecules, it carries the life-force. The energy behind oxygen is chi, it is life-force; oxygen is spirit, which is why when you have a great intake of it, you feel floating, you feel out of your body. Now use the oxygen to be IN your body, use the oxygen to anchor your spirit in your body.
If you are feeling depressed, you might be experiencing symptoms of feeling disconnected from your physical self; your spirit is ready and willing to do, but may feel dragged down by the weight of this material plane. Instead of fighting against the physicality, I invite you to EMBRACE your physicality. You are spirit in a human body, and this is the time to rejoice in that, to feel and focus being physical. Being in the moment it is not just about focusing your mind, your heart, your spirit, it is about focusing your BODY.
This year is revolutionary for all of you, and that is because you are integrating! You are not just of mind and spirit and emotions, you are a body as well, and you will greatly learn how to work with your body. Let your body be a part of your development; those who exercise frequently know of this, but at the same time I ask you to focus your spirit IN your body, instead of just focusing on your body wellness. Focus on your spirit IN your body, and working within your body. It wants to express itself through your body; your spirit does not want to act on its own! It is here on Earth, it came here for a reason! It is ready to express itself through your physicality.
If you feel melancholy this month, then know you are not IN your body, do not think of these things as separate, such as ‘oh, i am focusing on my spirit now’, ‘oh, I am focusing on my body”; know that they are together. Your physical self is an expression of your spirit, your spirit is energy, your body is energy, they are not separate, they want to work together, they want to be ONE.
The easiest way to have all aspects of yourself work together in harmony is to do uplifting things. You must raise your energy, as this month you will feel you are flying, or feel you are sinking, and if you feel that you are sinking, you know that your spirit is doing one thing, and your body is doing another, and your mind is miles away. The body will be tired and unmotivated when it feels disconnected; it doesn’t want to actually do anything because it is disconnected from spirit, and your spirit ALWAYS wants to be doing, because it is creating, and that is the natural state of your spirit, because creation is an action of love, and love is what you are, so naturally you want to be creating.
So when your body is feeling lonesome, like it can do more no further, and your mind may be fighting in any direction, know that your body is feeling disconnected from spirit, and now you must do something to connect it: this may be exercise, meditation, or simply telling your Higher Self and your Body to work together and be one. Oneness is where we are headed, Oneness is what you deeply desire. These individual tasks and dreams and paths you wish to take are all good, but do you know what they are leading you to? They are leading you to Oneness, the deepest desire of all. As you work on this in the Earthly realm, know that I am always with you.
