Growing, growing, growing, until life feels so small…too small to contain or even entertain you anymore. The frustration becomes unbearable.
Transmutation begins. Withdrawing from the old, feeling the confusion about who and what to keep and what to leave behind. There is pain in letting go…in falling apart, in becoming goo…feeling like you can’t breathe…gasping for air and feeling the panic that you might not survive.
A certain kind of surrender…and the tingles of freedom.
Wet wings and wobbly legs. Eyes bright and adjusting to your new world. It’s the same world, but it feels completely different…more peaceful, elegant, and beautiful.
Each awkward step brings you closer to the soul of this new home. Your heart begs you to fly, to express every move that could not exist in your old life…Unfurl your wings to discover the colors and wisdom that have been veiled, and the light behind the mask that has dropped to the floor.
We are in constant cycles of transition, transmutation, and integration. Some cycles are smooth and easy, others strip us of everything we thought we knew. Many of us are feeling an intense transition right now…For some it feels global, for others it feels quite personal. I believe that we are ascending into a higher consciousness and a deeper appreciation of beauty whether it is in our surroundings or within us. It’s like a caterpillar looking into a mirror and seeing a butterfly…we are seeing our truth.
How are you expanding beyond yourself right now?
