Happy Wellness Wednesday, friends!
“The moon is a reminder that no matter what phase I am in, I am still whole.” -Unknown
As I take grasp of the last week of teaching yoga for a period of a time to settle into a new profession, I have reflected a lot about transitions. I spent the majority of my time working with the mind body in a space of comfort and I now will be harmonizing the practice by spending majority of my new time with the physical body in surgery in a space of tension. While my teaching and practice in the studio will only be on a pause, the reality of transitioning from one lifestyle to another is beginning to sink.
When we experience transitions, we experience change. We may feel a sense of loss or abandonment as we become immersed in the ebb and flow of life. Relief can be found in the idea that endings pave the way for beginnings. It is important during transitions that we allow ourself the space we need to lament over what we are passing. Creating this space may give us the mental clarity to realize there are a multitude of opportunities waiting to unearth.
This realization of endings paving the path to beginnings may cultivate greater ease during the transition from one phase to another. Be that as it may feel like a loss of identity of leaving or pausing a sacred portion of your life, the future you are anxious about does exist quite yet and there is comfort knowing there are infinite possibilities.
However, many of us are reluctant to change, preferring that each day be much like the same due to its uncomfortable energy shift. At times like this, it may help to state our intention of what we want to benefit from such change. In a way, it is like asking a friend to assist you. If the time aligns, the universe will offer the key to doors you wish to receive to produce such change. When we have a clear directive from the mind, we have the ability to possess clear action. We can then trust we have all that we need within to take on the ending that is a new beginning.
