How are you navigating the energy of this new year so far? If you’re feeling anything like I am, you might be at this juncture where everything is beginning to unwrap and release that has been carefully cultivated over the years.
And “release” seems to be one of the themes for this month, according to Mystic Momma’s update from Lena Stevens.
You have the potential for some major acceleration, or could create further blockage, depending on the preparation and integrative work you’ve been doing. And a lot of this will also stem on how well you can prioritize heart over mind.
That’s not to say that one is better than the other (as they do work beautifully in partnering balance), but sometimes we allow our old, patterned ideas and beliefs surrounding what we “think” or have been conditioned to believe is better, more practical, or valuable, to take precedence over what is naturally aligned with our authenticity and divine flow – which ultimately will provide optimal results.
Some of the standout passages from Lena’s insights, which reflect my own, are these:
We have set our intentions, organized ourselves as best we could, tried to anticipate what’s ahead and are now ready for the gate to open so we can move forward in a release of energy that will be very productive for some of us, and could be very disruptive for others.
Some releases will be breakthroughs, some could feel destructive or chaotic, some devastating, some empowering and incredibly energizing.
If you have worked on getting all of your ducks in a row and getting organized around gathering the energy, resources, information and support needed for a project or goal, you may experience a release of this energy that will move the project along. Be prepared for it.
Ability to have what we want. This is an area of releasing a certain backlog of deprivation due to our past belief that the world does not support us and who we are as conscious beings. All the prayers and intentions and spiritual study we have put into ourselves is now a pregnancy at full term. The challenge will be in the allowing for things to be different, easy, abundant and supportive.
(That last part has felt so true and the same message I’ve been receiving. The birthing is now. And the experience will be fun, free, simple….if you can integrate and release the old ways, feelings, actions, and beliefs.)
The release of the mind and how it holds worry, anxiety, judgment, priorities, and all the information it is convinced you can’t live without. The mind is over full and begging for release. Many of our addictions and desire for escape is due to an over full mind of worry, anxiety, chaos, and judgment. The lesson here is in allowing the heart to prioritize for you instead of the mind, which is often fear based.
One of the main lessons and certainly a sub-theme for the month is PRIORITIES. Learning how to prioritize will be key to staying balanced this month and to moving with ease and grace through the releases you will experience as well as in choosing where to focus on your overly abundant and well-stocked plate.
Priorities are not always what you think they should be. Some priorities stem from what is emotionally important rather than what is practically important.
(Oh my gosh is this ever my experience. Right now I am totally engaged in setting priorities that match my authenticity and joy, and are intuitively guided with right timing, while remaining flexible.)
We are not accustomed to listening as well to what our heart tells us is a priority rather than our mind. For example, if you have not given yourself the time or space to grieve a certain loss or spend some quality rest time, and your emotional container is overfull, it becomes a priority even though your mind may tell you differently.
Your mind may say you have too much to do and you are too busy at work or with other disciplines to take the time to rest or to grieve.
(I’ve seen this where I easily can get caught up in a lot of “busy” work, so I consistently have to tap my shoulder and check in with my heart to see how it’s feeling with the work at hand, and if it has a different message for me in terms of focus that would be more beneficial and optimizing – even if I don’t understand how.)
If you are not proactive with your emotional priorities, especially the releases this month, the dam may just break and you will not find yourself releasing with grace and ease but rather more dramatically such as through an accident, illness or emotional break down.
Do some work on your priorities and see if you can identify the emotionally important ones, as they will be the ones to pay attention to this month.
There could be overwhelm and a little chaos this month as well. Think of finally being admitted into a store that has just had its shelves totally restocked with more choices than you ever had before. If you don’t know what you are looking for you could get overwhelmed with too many choices. It is important to identify what you are looking for from your heart rather than your mind. Pay attention to right timing and to what shows up. Trust.
(Again, so right on! The beauty and joy of right now is that there are unlimited choices. I have been facing these wonderful potentials and possibilities in abundance over the last couple of months, and so it really takes some fine tuning into the radio of my heart to ensure I’m not missing the important cues it is singing to me. This includes not just latching on to any ol’ thing that comes my way. Alignment with your vibration is key.)
The opportunity is for releasing how you hold fear, worry and anxiety. It is time to re imprint yourself with the notion that everything has its right timing and everything of importance will get done.
Take some time every day and release a judgment that you have of yourself or someone else. Observe the space and freedom you create in this release.
On another note, the energy being released around projects and goals and dreams could also magnetize new relationships into your life. Practice neutrality in expectation and judgment with each of these new connections…
It’s all systems go this month. Watch the body’s reaction to stress, worry and anxiety. Watch for old toxins finding a way to be released. Your body will be a great barometer this month on whether you are on the right track for ease and grace or not….
For those of you who are having trouble getting on that horse and riding into your future, it will be important to keep the moving center active and use it with intention that however you engage it (walking, jogging, dancing, etc.), it be symbolic of release and subsequent movement forward.

You may also enjoy Tom ‘Kaypacha’ Lescher’s recent Astrology Forecast for the week of February 4th, 2014. His messages ring right in line with Lena’s and my own.
In his forecast you’ll find the message of recognizing that when things challenge us, to remember it is Spirit at work that is creating surprises, twists and turns, to help you align in love, evolution of soul and heart, and with conscious awareness of the unity of all existence.
These “challenges” are reminders that our “plans” need to align with these for the magick to be experienced without disillusionment or confusion.
Tom also feels there’s an emphasis on taking a vacation from the mind – turn it off while turning on your heart and feelings. Again, this is to help in the repatterning until you can learn to use them in balanced partnership. For now, we’re overhauled in the mind department and it isn’t even really the productive use of mind, but a lot of old programming and fearful ego aspects that are running the show.
We are learning to “be” and when we embody this, then the doing becomes an extension of that “being”, naturally.
Tom says, “It’s time to learn your lessons and if you have, then you can go sailing!”
But indeed, the wounds have to re-open, clean out, and heal, before they can mend. So just realize that this potential uncomfortable enhancement is temporary, if you allow it to run its “natural” course.
