It’s somehow fitting to start a new decade with a channeling on the Millennial generation. The tens of millions born between 1981 and 1996 are reshaping society even more than when the Baby Boom generation launched 70-plus years ago. This is in part because of the sheer size of the Millennial generation and the new technologies developed in recent decades. But in part three of this four-part series, the Akashic Records suggest that the Millennial generation is creating very deep changes to contend with upcoming challenges.

From the Akashic Records
What is an energetic descriptor of the Millennial generation?
They are the rebuilders. While Generation X was described as the master builders, in the coming decades the Millennial generation will remake what the Gen-Xers are now building. What Generation X is energetically creating is necessary. On one level, what the Gen-Xers are doing is keeping things together long enough until the Millennials can come into their full force to modify and complete the construction.

Is there further information about the Millennial generation being the rebuilders?
The Millennials are completely reforming existing ideas. In fact, they’re reaching back to the generations before the Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers to find things that are new to them—attitudes, ways of approaching ideas, and ways of thinking about things—that feel more authentic to them. While the Millennial generation is, and will be for some time, living in the energetic house that the Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers have built, they’re also reconstructing it based on some of the ideals and ideas that came before the Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers.

What are they rebuilding and reconstructing?
The Millennials will have challenges that the two previous generations haven’t had to deal with. What the Millennials are now doing is going back to an earlier age where they feel there were true connections. Even though this generation is technologically adept, there’s something about technology that brings dissatisfaction to them. A feeling of inauthenticity is just beginning to bubble up, and a sense of wanting to find individual authenticity will become stronger for this generation over the coming years.

They’re looking to how they can create authentic connection. The connection that they’re looking for is mostly authentic connection with themselves. The Millennial generation is getting a lot of different messages about what is authentic and true, but as a generation, the Millennials are working independently and individually to understand what is true for each of them. It’s like each person is figuring out what is authentic, and once they do they will come together with their individual authenticity and weave a new container. This container will be very strong because it will be woven from everyone’s individual authenticity. Meanwhile the house that the Boomers and Gen-Xers have built is giving the Millennials shelter so they can weave their own way of doing things.

Is there anything else to say about the coming challenges?
The Millennials will pull together in a way that even they don’t quite understand yet, and they’re going to do a beautiful job with it. This is what is meant by the Millennial generation being the rebuilders. They’re going to build upon the structures that the boomers and the Gen-Xers have created. The likely changes in the coming decades are going to be very challenging, both energetically and socially, and the Millennials will take what the Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers have done and use it as a base to build something new. It’s going to look completely different than what the Boomers and Gen-Xers have done because they’ll be building in a different environment for a different world. The Millennial generation will rise to the challenge, in part because they’re learning things about connection that the two previous generations haven’t. Yes, they’re using technology as a connector but what they’re going to find is that technology is going to be just the first piece of the connections they’ll be building.

The Millennial generation is taking the best parts of technology and the best parts of human connection to build new types of connections that will adapt to the changes that are coming forward. This generation has the ability to reach out and pull everybody up to the same level in a way that no previous generation has been able to do.
