“What do we need to focus on this month?” Comfort (Archangel Azrael from Doreen Virtue’s “Archangel Oracle Cards”)

The message on the card reads: “I am with you in your time of need, helping your heart to heal.”

This is all about grief which is a direct consequence of the many endings and losses that have been going on lately. Personally, I have experienced this throughout April and it is definitely continuing this month. What have you let go of? What do you need to let go of? This actually flows on from last month where we had to get clear about our intentions in life – this often entails releasing things, people and aspects of ourselves that no longer align with our values or serve us in some other positive way. After we go through this emotional cleansing, we are ready to move forward with the next phase of our lives.

Even though I think May is going to be a busy month for most of us, we will need to find the time to rest and feel our emotions otherwise they will weigh us down and we won’t be any good to anyone. In relation to grief, I recommend the following to help with riding the waves of this painful and inevitable emotion:

  • Time alone
  • Watching movies or listening to music that taps into sadness
  • Writing
  • Star of Bethlehem (Bach Flower Essence)
  • Rose oil
  • Chamomile tea (or the aromatherapy oil if it is more convenient)
  • Spending time in nature

Happy Letting Go and Moving Forward in May!
