May Monthly Angel Number Energy

Monthly Angel Number Energy

~ May ~

Rest, Reflection, Renewal

Energy is shifting and dynamic. It is constantly flowing, changing, and running in and out of our lives. The energy around us affects the energy within us, and with each passing month, there is a significant energy shift as the number it resonates with changes.

The angels are using this monthly energy to send us guidance and suggestions so that we can use it to make the most of our life’s path and to accomplish our dreams, goals, and soul’s mission.

The following post is what the angels want us to know about the monthly angel number energy of May.

Have you ever heard of the butterfly effect? The idea is that a gentle and subtle flap of a butterfly’s wing creates a ripple that can lead to something much bigger. It is said by chaos theory that a butterfly flapping its wings in the Amazon jungle can create a hurricane halfway around the world weeks later.

The energy of the angel number 5 always reminds me of butterflies. It is the energy of positive, life-transforming change that takes us into a new era of our life path. And, like the caterpillar who must become a butterfly, we, too, go through massive life-transforming changes along our life path.

Although this change isn’t always easy, the angel number 5 provides the supportive energy, love, and guidance needed to get through it all with grace and dignity.

The month of May resonates deeply with the energy of the angel number 5. Therefore, this month is steeped in the energy of change and preparing to move forward into the unknown next phase of your life, spiritual journey, and dreams and goals.

But it isn’t the energy of jumping into change and taking off in a new direction.

No, no, no.

It is more about stepping back and getting ready for the change that is to come. It is a time best used for rest, reflection, and renewal.

As the butterfly effect or chaos theory says, what you do now will create a ripple effect in your life going forward. Positive thoughts and gratitude during this time will create positivity, whereas negative thoughts will lead to negative manifestations.

So, it is so very important to use this month’s energy of change wisely – by taking your time, thinking things through, taking care of yourself – both physically and spiritually – and ensuring you have a strong, positive, and supportive foundation for moving forward.

You want to mimic the caterpillar in its chrysalis to ensure you get through this strong energy of change. He is resting. Letting the naturally occurring changes transform his body into the butterfly he will soon emerge as. He is not forcing this change; he is resting and letting it happen.

The transforming caterpillar also needs to release the past. He must let go and allow his past life to fall away. He knows how he used to live his life simply will not serve him anymore. He will no longer eat the leaves he once crawled along; instead, he will fly and savor the sweet nectar of the flowers. He may not know what is ahead of him, but he knows his past has served the purpose of getting him this far. Now it is time to let it go and move forward.

If the changes and transformations of this month feel scary or overwhelming, know that is okay. Ask your angels to help you see the positive side of any seemingly negative situation or change that comes up.

The angel number 5 already resonates strongly with the energy of angels surrounding and comforting you through difficult times. Still, it never hurts to ask the angels for extra support and offer gifts of gratitude to them in return.

Honestly, it is best to ask your angels for as much help as possible this month, as this is not a time to take on all the problems that arise head-on anyway. Instead, you want to focus on staying in a state of grace and dignity as much as possible – especially when problems, difficulties, or challenges arise.

It is best to focus on creating and maintaining a sense of inner peace and feeling love and gratitude for life as much as you can this month. Take a vacation, rest, focus on self-care and fall back on your faith and spiritual connection to get you through anything that comes up.

Remember throughout the month that what you are doing, feeling, and how you handle and manage what comes up for you will impact and influence the energy going forward.

So keep it calm and positive. And this is where I find it is so much easier to ask my angels to help me through it all and to help me discover and maintain my peace and calm as I allow the past the fall away and the transformation of the year to unfold into something amazing, divinely inspired, and fueled by my faith, gratitude, and love.

To sum all that up, here are a few key areas to focus on so that you can use the energy of the angel number 5 effectively during this month of May:

  • Take some time to rest and relax. This will help you gain a new perspective going forward. It is never a bad idea to take a vacation while under the influence of the angel number 5.
  • Reflect on your past and let it go. “Out with the old, in with the new.” Thank what no longer serves you for getting you this far and release it so you have room for the new that is waiting to emerge in your life.
  • Indulge in lots of self-care and pampering to energize and prepare you for the changes upon you.
  • Focus on creating and maintaining inner peace by focusing on having as much grace and dignity as possible. Especially when problems, struggles, or challenges come up.
  • Ask your angels to help with everything!
  • When making decisions going forward. Base your choices on your heart’s desire without fear of judgment or concern about what others think.
  • Be kind to yourself. Keep your thoughts positive, and be careful what you say about yourself. You are important, and your purpose is important. Negative self-talk will only serve to keep you down when now is the time to be lifting yourself up.

The energy of the angel number 5 is amazing and exhilarating, and it propels us toward self-growth, change, and spiritual development. Yet can be challenging and even scary for many of us – as change, releasing control, and stepping into the unknown can be scary. And the month of May can easily reflect all this shifting and adjusting back onto you.

So the angels send the reminder that the energy of this transformation is positive and one of divine necessity. It is very important for you, your life, and your spiritual journey and will result in a positive shift overall.

Remember, the angels are with you, loving you – and helping you every step of the way. So have faith and let them care for you a bit this month. You deserve a break, and you will need the energy and rejuvenation it gives you when the change is complete and the energy picks back up again.

May 2023 Events

~ May 5th (5/5):

The 5th of May is a day full of positive shifts, transformation, and change. Take a step back and observe the energy of this day to ensure your dreams, goals, self-growth, and spiritual journey are on the path you want them to be for the new beginnings that will inevitably unfold. Be sure to read about the angel number 55 to learn more about this amazing and awe-inspiring energy of transformation and growth.

~ Mercury Retrograde began on April 21 and will end this month on the 14th.

Like May and the angel number 5, Mercury Retrograde brings an energy of rest and reflection. And we go into this month while in the midst of a retrograde. So it is even more important to rest, reflect and release any parts of your past that no longer serve you than usual.

Due to the inherent energy of this month combined with the influence of Mercury in Retrograde, you can expect this month to feel slow and unproductive. Focus on tying up loose ends and finishing projects from the past, and trust that you are making much more progress than it feels like.

You also need to take care to be kind and understanding in all your relationships. To avoid problems in communication that often arise during retrograde, be sure to focus even harder on handling all problems with as much grace and dignity as you can muster up.

To get by unscathed this month, your best bet is to put your energy into a lot of self-care, compassion, and the pursuit of inner peace.
