The Gap - Transitions
Transitions - movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage, subject, concept, etc., to another; change as defined by dictionary.com. This is the primary time for all energetic things to go out of whack and the crazy thing is, we are always in transition. So what does that mean for our energy? It means it is time to be aware of why it goes out of whack to begin with.
When you are in a time of transition, for example moving to a new house, new job, new relationship, etc. you are feeling unclear about where you are headed and nevous about what you are leaving behind. It is like a gap. But the gap is where the freedom lies. Right before you start that new job, you can release old patterns of being at work and start fresh. Right before you move to a new house, you can go through your things and clear out the things you no longer need. This is a excellent time to reevaluate, slow down and recreate. You are not yet in an automatic pattern again! What a great opportunity for awareness.
Transitions don't have to be big either and you could even just be going through a transition within yourself that no one else even knows about. Maybe you are deciding to eat differently or think differently, maybe you are even deciding to just breath differently. :) These are all little opportunities to pay attention and make any small adjustments you would like to set yourself on the forward path.
Now what throws you off in times of transitions? Resistance, not being present, trying to hard, just to name a few (links back to older blogs about these topics I frequently visit). The key to the transition is to pay attention to everything that shows up in the gap. Your fears, you struggles, your thoughts, your friends and family's thoughts are all things to notice because they are hints as to where you are headed next if you don't pay attention to them now.
Insightful Inspiration of the week
What transition are you fighting with right now? Are you trying to close the gap and "get on with it" rather than being present with the time in between?Or maybe just the opposite and you are struggling to stay in the in between because you are afraid of what is on the other side. Pay attention, these are fears and patterns you have carried with you for a long time. You can clean your energetic closet during this time as preparation for what is to come next. There is nothing to predict or plan for on the other side yet. Take the transition to make the next steps the solid ones you want.
