The Theme for March 2014 is COMMITMENT.
This is a month of putting yourself 100% behind your choices and decisions. It is about setting new rules, weeding out what doesn’t work, being disciplined about what it takes to manifest your intentions, and doing your work. It is about taking all of the grand dreams and goals and grounding them into a practical “to do” list that you follow even when you don’t feel like it.
This month you will see what you are made of and you will be inspired by your ability to persevere and take action. How you handle this month will set you up for managing any challenges that may come your way in the future. There will be opportunities to handle more power and to be resolved in your choices and decisions. It will be critical to anchor your commitments in your heart and to be clear from that perspective about what you are willing to get behind and what you are not willing to put any more energy into.
In the aftermath of the RELEASE theme of February, there is a lot of emotional, psychological and energetic debris floating around that has nowhere to go. All of this debris needs to either be cleaned up and disposed of, or integrated in a way that serves a new direction and new dreams. Practicality has its benefits this month as well as paying attention to the details and keeping track of your discipline.
Take the grand vision and pull it back so you can see what you can fully commit to in the moment and make a practical action plan full of attainable baby steps:
If you want to lose weight, what can you commit to every day that is part of your discipline? If you want to get into shape what can you commit to daily that will help you in that goal? If you want to succeed in a new business, what are the attainable steps you can commit to every day? If you want a better living situation what can you do now every day to move towards manifesting that?
There is “waiting for and allowing right timing”, and then there is such a thing as showing the universe that you are ready for that right timing to show up. It is called commitment. When you have commitment, there is no back door, there is no turning back and there is no ambivalence or condition under which you will proceed or not proceed.
Until you are committed there is always a chance to change your mind. Some of you are masters at keeping everything just in that place of “not quite there”. This is due to the fear of being trapped or the fear of failing once committed. What is actually true is that there is great freedom once you commit to something. Commitment allows you to release the ambivalence and resistance that takes so much emotional and psychological energy, and it gives the universe something to work with. Commitments are rewarded, ambivalence is not.
There is a part of commitment that supports the cycle of completion. Once you have released your energy behind something you have committed to, it is on a trajectory towards a goal. You need to give this energy a chance to land where it is destined. If you keep yanking it back, you will end up with many incomplete actions and lots of loose ends.
It will also be crucial to stay out of depression, lethargy and denial this month. This is a time for action, not for “wait and see”. We’ve been waiting long enough and now it is the time to commit to what you really want, from your heart, not your mind. So what are you waiting for? The mind is the trap that will try and sabotage your actions. Listen instead to what your heart says you should be committed to.
How the month shows up
This month you will face your fears, face your resistance, face your procrastination and face your doubts. You will struggle and argue with your mind about why you can’t or shouldn’t. It is the mind that will try and drive you into despair while the heart cheers you on. There is great personal growth and evolution possible this month as you get to know yourself even better.
It will require guts and trust for some of your commitments but you will never know how the universe will support them unless you go for it, make your committed choices and close all the back doors. This month is perfect for really doing what you said you wanted to do. Make an action plan for your commitments and be disciplined about it. This is the month to show up and to do your work even when you don’t feel like it. If you do, you will be rewarded.
This is a big area. What relationships are you committed to keeping and nurturing and what relationships are you not interested in putting any more energy into? One commitment that would benefit all is the commitment to improve your relationship with yourself and to be committed to improving the relationships you are already committed to. If these relationships need more time, commit more time. If they need more support, commit more support. If you commit, you give them what they need. This of course includes the relationship with yourself.
This month we may see some relationships being dissolved because the commitment is not there and some relationships coming up for review. This is also a good month to revisit working with energy leaks especially with regards to relationships. When you commit to something, you should expect to get out what you put in. It should end up being satisfying and fulfilling in some way.
Commitment here is with regards to your personal environment and especially for those dreams of living somewhere else or changing the work or home environment for something better and more suitable. The back door here is always, “ I will change when… or if…..” .
When you have words like “when, if, and some day”, they do not communicate a true commitment. If you are truly committed to changing your environment, there is always an action plan that can be put into place that will ground your dream and give you a daily discipline to work from. Remember that a million baby steps will take you up the mountain to the top
The greater environment can also teach us a great deal about commitment. All you have to do is observe any natural phenomena to see that an act of nature is 100% committed. When a raindrop is released from the cloud, it does not change its mind mid stream and go back. We should all learn from nature in this way.
The body is still reeling from the releases of February and some of you are working through really old and deep patterns. It always takes the body some time to catch up to energetic shifts and changes. If you are one of these people, honor the process and commit to doing whatever it takes to support the change that your body has made a sacrifice for.
This month is supported by the masculine; the third chakra, and lessons around your will, stamina and resolve. Challenges around digestion, the adrenals, the diaphragm and the lymph may be up. Increase your circulation through getting enough exercise. If you feel sluggish both physically and energetically, take action, any action, through movement and it will help.
This is a powerful month for projects and any business endeavor that requires a commitment. It has been a tricky time for investments and to figure out what project is worth committing to and what project is not. Partnerships have also come with their challenges as people are changing and growing and evolving sometimes beyond what they originally committed to.
It’s OK to change your mind and to dissolve a partnership or bail on a project as long as the end is honored and the commitment to dissolve it is final. What that means is taking care of any feelings of regret, failure, disappointment and anything else that may keep the energy hooked. It is important to commit to being irrevocable in the dissolving as well as to neutralize any lingering attitudes that are negative or feel unresolved.
Even if you start something new with the same partners, it is important to completely end what was before.
Committing fully to a project or any endeavor is where you will really see results this month. The universe will certainly reward a true commitment by delivering something tangible your way that will acknowledge your commitment. So have fun and go for it. Why wait?
DATES AND TIME FRAMES
March 1: The New Moon is Saturday, March 1 at 1:03 AM Mountain Standard Time.
This New Moon is especially potent in providing an opportunity to ask the question, “Where am I committed?” And if not why? It is never too late to weed out what does not serve you and commit to something that does. Take some time on this New Moon to revisit intentions and goals that you set back in December and at the beginning of this year and just take note of where you are with them. If some intentions were too ambitious, scale them down to something more practical without judgment. If they were not ambitious enough, refine them and dream bigger. If some have already been realized, be grateful. Notice where you are lacking in resolve and commitment. Perhaps it is with your practices or with taking action. If you feel unsupported, recommit to receiving support. It’s out there. You just have to ask. Set a new set of resolutions for yourself that will support your intentions. Be committed.
March 2-7: During this time frame you could come up against your own resistance, lethargy, depressed energy and self- judgment. Remember this is the false personality talking. Remember that if it does not feel positive and right, it is not of essence. Observe the voice you are listening to and make sure it is the right one.
Beware of your own habits and patterns trying to take over and suggesting that you are not enough and do not have what it takes to be that committed to anything. This is a time when discipline will be your friend and you will need to take the actions you have set for yourself even when you don’t feel like it.
Sunday March 9: Daylight savings time begins.
March 8-15: Notice all the support you have showing up around your commitments. Acknowledge where you are truly not committed and do something about eliminating whatever it is that is not inspiring enough to put any further energy into. This may be a time of completions for you as you dissolve some of your past goals and intentions that are no longer serving you. If confusion should set in between what your mind believes and where your heart lies, let the heart lead and make those important decisions for you.
Beware of wallowing in regret and self-judgment. This will only lead to stagnation and you will not take advantage of the momentum of this month.
March 16: Full moon is Sunday, March 16, at 11:10 AM MDT (Mountain Daylight Time). This full moon provides an opportunity to commit to experiencing you life with more ease, harmony and synchronicity. It is possible to integrate your lessons, experiences, change and all the progress you are making. It is also a good time to bring all those big dreams and intentions into the present, grounding them, and making them practical and tangible. Make a plan and commit to taking the first baby step in the plan required to manifest them. (You can get help with this on our support Mp3)
March 20: Spring Equinox is Thursday, March 20, 2014 at 10:57 AM MDT (Mountain Daylight Time). Celebrate all of your New Beginnings especially the ones you have recently committed to. Be grateful for all of your support both seen and unseen. If there are things you have yet to dissolve and complete, create a ritual where you can eliminate them symbolically through burning or burial or some other funereal activity. Then bless all the new energies you are working using flowers, water and light.
March 17-23: The energy is moving fast during this time. You have to be ready and prepared. The horse has found its open space and is galloping across the field. You will need to learn to hold the reins. It’s your horse, your life. You are the driver. If you surf, you want to be on the crest of the wave where the thrill is, not being tumbled around underneath or kicked off the horse.
What can derail and tumble you are your addictions to drama, bad habits, negative thinking and martyrdom. You need to be strong and disciplined and committed during this time. You need to do your personal work and show your commitment.
There is an opportunity to upload great amounts of personal power, the kind of power that comes with being proud of yourself for not falling off the wagon. So don’t get distracted, lazy and apathetic. Stay engaged.
March 24-31: This is still a relatively potent time and will show up differently for different people. Some of you will experience the tangible support of the universe around what you are committed to. The mantra here is “never give up if it’s really what you want to do, from the heart”. Perseverance is the name of the game now and you should have some good disciplines, habits and practices that have been anchored and solidified over the past few weeks.
Continue to refine your commitments as they evolve and manifest. Your hard work in this area will provide you great support in navigating the opportunities and challenges of the next month.
Have a great month,
