It seems my work is most often called for during times of transition. People call, not because they are dreaming of some fairy tale life and how to put the pieces together, but instead when they’re facing the feeling that their life is falling apart and they’re not sure whether to hold on or to let go. If they go with it, let go of everything that is, typically a reality that they at some point worked hard to achieve or truly believed they wanted – what does that say? Are they giving up? And if they are, why?
As a guide I love nothing more than to hold a space of pure faith, faith in the laws of the universe, and faith in the clients that I work with. I truly believe that everything does happen, ‘for a reason’, with a purpose. The purpose being our own awakening into a deeper and more fully expressed version of our truest essence. When the snake is ready to shed her skin, she’s ready – there’s no turning back and in truth the more we resist the greater the suffering, so pure surrender is the only way through.
And yes, to our egoic minds that crave safe, stable, predictable ground to walk on, stepping into the murky, misty, unknown brings up all kinds of uncomfortable emotions. But here’s a thought to hold close to to your heart, originally picked up through reading the wise words of Abraham:
My fear and suffering is an indication that I’m growing.
When you’re going through a time of transition, resist the urge to fight it. Lean in to the vastness of which you are becoming.
“The real meaning of enlightenment is to gaze with undimmed eyes on all darkness.”
– Nikos Kazantzakis
