Here is the wonderful and wise LENA STEVENS from The Power Path.com with her channelled guidance and energetic theme for FEBRUARY 2018:
“This month we examine our relationship with time, with impatience, with the masculine willful part of ourselves that always wants to push things through and make things happen, our addiction to stress and drama, and our fear of not being and doing enough. Whew!
“The good news is that as these habits surface, we are given an alternative way of approaching the way we intend, put into action and manifest what we want.
“It is allowing the ‘unfolding’ of what we put into action instead of forcing a result through pushing, hurrying and efforting.
“The huge collective fear pattern called ‘not enough time’ is in our face. It is deep and it is cultural.
“’Time is money’, ‘hurry, hurry, hurry’ or you will miss out on something, be the first in line, the first to win, the best at everything etc. 
“We are competitive instead of cooperative and our measure of success is based on comparison instead of personal satisfaction.
“We have become a society where our hearts can’t keep up and our adrenals are shot.
We are almost never in present time always worrying about the future and trying to stay in control and ahead of the game with hyper vigilance and the effort caused by overworking.
“We have an opportunity here to examine how we have been living our lives and to begin to make some changes in our attitudes, beliefs, relationship with time and our fear of not being enough.
“Complete change will not happen overnight, however you will see results that are almost magical if you begin to practice an alternative way of approaching your life and your action.
“We begin this month in the wake of the powerful super full moon/eclipse of the last day of January. We are still under its influence as we begin the month and we can use its wave of energy to launch this time for ourselves in a good way.
“If you have not spent a bit of time aligning your intentions, you can still take advantage of the eclipse portal to do so. It is best if you can include the intention of ease, clarity, right timing, and support for patience and perfect alignment for your actions to be effortless.
“The goal this month is to allow everything to ‘unfold’ as a flower unfolds into a full bloom from a bud. You cannot force a bud to bloom before its time, and you never know exactly how that full bloom is going to look.
“We, and many of our intentions, are at the bud stage now, and allowing the ‘unfolding’ in their right time will take some shifting in the way we have always approached the way we do things.
“The Full Lunar Eclipse of January 31 has opened a time frame that is bookended by a partial solar eclipse mid-month. It creates a perfect structure of time for observation, review, and change.
“Since eclipses are always about supporting change we should always take the opportunity they present to keep things moving in our lives.
“We are also moving from a year of the fire rooster in Chinese astrology to the year of the earth dog on February 16.
“This shifts our container of growth from fiery reactions that stimulate change, to working with more stability and grounding to anchor new ways of ‘being’ and ‘doing’ in our lives.
How the month shows up:
“This is a tremendous time and opportunity for growth. The biggest challenge and one that will reap the most rewards in the end will be to examine and change your relationship with time.
“Even if you are not usually an impatient person you may experience being impatient this month. It is up for review for everyone both personally and culturally.
“It is the fear of not having enough time and when it is also connected with a lack of self-esteem, it takes on the flavor of the fear of not being good enough to actually manage your time.
“This is a huge issue and the more work you can do on your relationship with time this month, the more you will see the results of the magic of synchronicity and things just manifesting in their own time (like magic).
“The results can be almost instantaneous. Ask and you shall receive. The key is to be receptive to receiving without judgment about how the goods are delivered and without the obsessive worry that you won’t somehow get them.
“If you are struggling, pull back from the struggle, reset your intentions with a better alignment, and then let go of the control of ‘how’ and ‘when’.
“If you start your day with the attitude that you will allow the day to ‘unfold’ in a magical way for you and then remind yourself of this several times during the day, you will soon see the results of this new approach.
“Make it fun, make it an adventure, an experiment, and practice patience around others and your own fears. If doubt surfaces around your ability, push it aside and stay with the feeling of magic instead.
“A key is to stay out of your head and always trust your heart instead.
“Relationships this month will either serve as a good container for the growth and change that is possible or they will test you. If they test you, it will be in the form of not being on the same page.
“Watch the expectations of others as they may go against what you are trying to achieve. Especially your work relationships may be operating on a different wavelength than you.
“You may have a boss that insists on doing business as usual or a partner that expects you to act as you always have. This may make it challenging for you to stay with your intentions to allow things to simply unfold.
“The best advice is to stay out of any arguments about the ‘right’ way of doing things and set some good boundaries against other people’s beliefs.
“If someone is impatient with you, don’t buy into it. At the same time, watch your impatience with others and allow them to experience their own right timing.
“Relationship dynamics always include expectations and it is important to acknowledge when you have expectations of others as well as when you are triggered by what you identify as expectations of others directed at you.
“In a way, you cannot be attached to what others may think of you or how they may judge you. There is a lot of freedom in releasing that attachment but it does require that you stay out of self-deprecation that may try to influence you to cave to another’s agenda over yours.
“Remember that relationships are not only with other people. You have your relationship with time, with your support, with your allies, with yourself and with nature to also consider as you navigate this month.
“So, if your relationships with other people are challenged, you can always turn to these other ones to work with better results.
“Impatience and the habit of efforting and pushing to get things done is very hard on the body especially the adrenals.
“Since one of the lessons this month is about shifting that around, you may get messages from your body about what is out of balance and where changes need to be made.
“If you have been overworking, your body will tell you. You may even experience a crash of some sorts, a wake up call to pay attention to how you are using your action.
“As with any other area of your life, allowing the unfolding in right time is a lesson in patience and trust.
“How many of us just take medication when we come down with the flu so we can keep going in our work and daily tasks? There is no glory in this ‘pushing through’.
“The better way is to honor and take the time necessary for rest and recuperation. The body heals itself if the space is created.
“What restricts and limits that space is impatience, expectation and a disregard for what the body needs.
“This is the month to really learn to listen to your body and to give it what it needs. Discovering a new relationship to time may change your cycles, anything from sleep to exercise to attention span etc.
“Everyone is unique and different and we should not try and all fit into the same mold. Some need more sleep than others.
“For some sitting meditation works and for others one that includes movement is more effective. Some are fed through the silence of alone time and others need the energy of others for inspiration and support.
“This can be a month of discovering your unique needs and to establish your own practices and cycles that really fit those needs.
“If others disapprove, so be it. Set your boundaries and don’t let the judgement of others sway you to conform to anything that does not serve you individually.
“And remember to take ‘time’ for yourself and to allow right timing to unfold in everything related to health and the body. Challenges this month will mostly be around energy levels, adrenals and viruses.
“The challenge this month for anyone who runs a business that has staff is to get everyone on the same page of setting intentions and then allowing for right timing to take over.
“It is difficult to trust that if something is meant to be, it will manifest easily and effortlessly.
“Since we are used to being competitive and are imprinted with business practices that are hyper vigilant around being successful based on completion, sitting back and allowing the unfolding of intention goes against what we have been taught is necessary for that success.
“So, the change is to be clear about what you want and the direction of your projects and business and then bring in support and get all the details handled.
“The next step is to relax about timing and watch what is meant to be unfold. If it doesn’t then perhaps the motivation needs to be examined and the intentions realigned.
“It is a good month to begin something new especially during this eclipse window. Just make sure that if you do start something new whether a business, an aspect of your business, a project or even just an idea you have, that you start it from a place of right motivation, serving yourself first.
“Never do something just because you think others expect it of you or that it will earn you points with others or make you more acceptable.
“You have to do it because you love it and it will bring you great joy and satisfaction.
“This is the key to having something successfully unfold for you rather than pushing it through.
“Wouldn’t it be great if all your endeavors manifested easily and without effort? Effort and hardship usually always indicates that there is something not quite right about the intention in the first place.
“The intention may be polluted by considerations that are not in your best service or interest. Part of the opportunity this month is to really examine the motivations behind all of your intentions especially ones that are related to work, projects and business.
“Why are you doing what you are doing and for whom? And remember to never make decisions or choices out of fear!
