When do you feel that you are of worth? Is this something that fluctuates or do you feel a consistent sense of your value? Is it dependent on the externals, what you have, what you achieve, how many followers or likes you get? Is it …
Fated change & transformation
This week brings a powerful solar eclipse which often coincides with fated changes, transformation, revelations, endings & new beginnings. A solar eclipse tends to shake up our world, move us out of our comfort zone & push our souls to evolve.It is so natural for us to resist change because as human beings, we tend to like the status quo. It gives us a sense of control over our lives. Eclipse season however challenges us to step out into the unknown again. This may come like a shocking lightening bolt or it may reveal itself with a soft whisper in our intuitive knowing but we will all be affected in one way or another. Let us see what this eclipse brings at this time but please know that you are not alone & for every experience that you are going through right now, there are wise sages who have already walked a similar road. Be open to the wisdom of these souls, as well as your own intuition.
“Change is hardest at the beginning,messiest in the middle and best at the end.”
With any change that occurs, I find it helpful to have a soothing daily practice to come out of our over-active thoughts, to ground down our energy through our bodies & return to our hearts in presence. Practices such as prayer, meditation, movement & exercise all offer grounding experiences to help us hold our balance in turbulent times.It is also helpful to understand that it is a natural process of life that we go through cycles of endings, transitions & new beginnings. Endings can occur like that of a change of job, the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, an illness revealed etc. Transitions can feel like being in limbo, not knowing what you want to turn to or where to begin again. We can feel stuck with no new opening revealing itself. New beginnings can feel like the rebirth, feeling confidence, meaning & purpose in where we are. It is here we feel like we have landed & have finally reached our destination but what we often fail to realise is, throughout the whole process, we have been exactly where we were supposed to be. All of that process was our metamorphosis. So if you find yourself holding tightly to the past or what once was comfortable, if you find yourself frustrated that you cannot break out of stuckness, imagine loosening your grip on how you think it should be, to allow in the reality of how it actually is.Receive in the what life is offering you in this very moment of presence & breathe.
“The moment of surrender is not when life is over, it’s when it begins.” Marianne Williamson
I understand that often we don’t want what life has presented. Who wants to deal with grief or illness?!!! But unfortunately the only way to integrate these difficult life experiences is to go through the darkness to eventually come out the other side. And the other side is not returning to our old way of living, it is a new place for us, a new land, our newness.I like to think of it as going through the birth canal with all of the uncomfortable contractions. We did it as a helpless baby when we could do nothing more but trust the process. We can do it again now. Allow yourself to release into the current, let go & flow with life.
