Transition…with a capital “T”!

Merriam-Websters Dictionary defines transition as: 1 a : passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another : change b : a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another 2 a : a musical modulation b : a musical passage leading from one section of a piece to another 3 : an abrupt change in energy state or level (as of an atomic nucleus or a molecule) usually accompanied by loss or gain of a single quantum of energy.  

From an energy standpoint the 3rd seems to fit nicely! 🙂 When you change your energy state, you clear out energies that are not YOU and bring in more of your own energy…thus the loss AND gain of energy! You are indeed transforming and YES this energy shift can manifest in the physical at a molecular level! So….Are YOU going through a TRANSITION in your life? It could be moving, getting married, in a new relationship, breaking up, getting divorced, maybe a new job or letting go of an old job; Really any abrupt change that signals a major transition in your life qualifies here! It could even be that you are looking to make some sort of BIG change but you feel as if something is holding you back…. If you are going through or even thinking about a TRANSITION with a capital “T”? READ ON!!!!

 As we enter the year 2010 I’ve been receiving reading requests from people all over the world.  There seems to be a common thread to these requests and when this happens it always alerts me to pay extra attention! 🙂 The word I keep hearing is “TRANSITION”.  I’m getting the same request over and over…’I’m in a transition and I’d like help with the direction’. I’m also hearing that at some level what they are or were doing isn’t working and it’s time to take a “step” for themselves but are having difficulty taking that step. Now, in a reading I don’t tell you which way to go as you have freewill and the ability to change and create what you want, however I do look at the energies that may be getting in the way of you making your own decision with clarity and certainty. What I continue to see in these readings is that you KNOW which direction to take but don’t feel safe at some level. Fear can stop you in your tracks and the answer is to feel safe enough to move forward.  

What kind of fear am I talking about here? The fear is not a fear of the unknown as you may have thought. It is also not the fear about taking a leap of faith. In fact, I saw excitement and joy in and around each transition. I saw passion and wanting to take a step toward some amazing goals and creations! The pictures that were the most prevalent were those of letting go of the familiar. Of course you all know that when you are feeling comfortable and safe it can be a challenge to make change but what about when the energies you are familiar with are pain, hurt, punishment, invalidation or failure? What if you are so familiar with those energies and programming that although you don’t like how it feels, it’s a part of you? In effect they have in some way become your truth. In these fear pictures what I saw time and time again was that it was more comfortable to hold on to the pain, hurt, invalidation and punishment than to let go of it for fear that some other unfamiliar pain would take its place. Worse than that, WHAT IF ALL THE PAIN WAS REPLACED WITH SUCCESS & EASE!!!??? In all my years of reading, and indeed in my own personal journey, I’ve never looked at this particular side of the equation! What if you actually succeeded?

If you’ve spent your life, or any part of your life, hurting in your relationships, loving the “wrong” one, have money struggles, experiencing invalidation, punishment, or failure (I could go on with that but you get the gist), perhaps your view is that is that no matter what you do or how it’s going right now, that eventually it will all fall apart. Even when you are completely on board with your transition, there may be doubt in your mind. If you find yourself looking for the grey cloud in your silver lining so to speak, then in many ways those thoughts will bring about what you are thinking about. Any picture that gets stimulated and lights up your old pain will make you run for the hills! In other words you go back into those very familiar pictures. If the fear is too great, you may even stop yourself from  making the transition altogether! When you get yourself grounded and safe you can let go of those pain pictures and fill up your space with SUCCESS!!! BUT you have to let go of that all too familiar pain first! 🙂 In my experience when I look at the fear of success it’s really more a fear of going back to any of those old pains. 

It is interesting to me what I discovered in these readings. It may seem like a simple concept but  learning how to ground yourself and let go of whatever it is that hurts can literally transform you! It is perhaps a bit challenging as you are going through whatever pain is rearing its ugly head, but in the end you fill yourself up with and find….Validation! Success! Love! Safety! Freedom! Fill yourself up with whatever it is that you passionately desire and live your dream! 🙂 Why not take a moment right now to feel what it would be like to HAVE & LIVE all your deepest desires! What does it feel like? Look like? The more “stuff” you let go of, the more space you will have to bring in and fill up with your energy and all that you wish to create!

Just as the caterpillar spins a cocoon around himself for safety to make the transition of transforming into a butterfly, getting grounded and safe is your cocoon. I will share with you one of my favorite quotes which so applies to this blog:  “How does one become a butterfly? she asked. You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.” Hope for the Flowers  So….give up being a caterpillar! Let go of your old definitions! Let go of any comfortable pain! Then…SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND SOAR ON THE WINDS OF YOUR LIFE!

Your Inner Sanctuary~

imagesThe famous philosopher Socrates said “Beware the barreness of a busy life”. I think that’s a very interesting quote! Have you noticed these days how busy we all are? Much of our attention is focused on the outside, what needs to be done today, tomorrow…or right NOW.  

Our brains are moving in a thousand different directions. How do we mangage our jobs (or lack thereof), families and responsibilities? How can we create and manifest more money? Find the love of our lives? Be FREE? Why is this or that happening in our lives?

As the holiday’s are quickly approaching we find ourselves with even more “busy-ness” and yes, stress! Wouldn’t it be great if we could all experience a peaceful, Norman Rockwell painting type of holiday? Or how about  just have a moment  when the world wasn’t buzzing in our heads so loud it’s almost deafening? I call that ‘loud head’ btw…not exactly a psychic term but I think it describes it pretty well! 🙂

It seems to me that the “barreness” Socrates is talking about is in many ways our own spirit. The joy of being safe in the body, at peace and in alignment with the earth, the universe and our very own selves. Occupying the space of our INNER SANCTUARY!

There is much talk about centering, alignment, creating (manifesting), being in the body etc. There are different beliefs & modalities as to how to get there, how to BE and how to manage it all in this world of “busy-ness”.  It can also feel very unsafe to be in the midst of it. The reality is that it is a challenge at best with our busy lives to merely sit down, let alone quiet the mind and be still.  After all there’s so much we need to DO! So what’s the bottom line? Well, read on dear ones!

All of this has to do with YOU taking CARE of YOURSELF! Actually taking the time to heal yourself, rejuvinate and bring back YOUR energy so you have access to it! 🙂 This of course means ALL OF YOU! MIND, BODY, SPIRIT AND SOUL!

 Not only CAN you do this but WHEN you do this, you will find you have more energy, less effort and things will begin to manifest themselves. Here are some interesting questions for you to ponder…. Do you care for yourself, answer to your own needs, nurture yourself and take as much time for YOU as you do for others? Do you take the time to quiet your mind, make your body safe, focus on your essence and what makes YOU happy? Do you feed your spirit & soul just as you feed your body?

For me, the answer lies in finding my INNER SANCTUARY. It’s really amazing how your “reality” will shift when you take time out of your day to access your inner sanctuary. It is a place of peace, a time to step out of the “busy-ness” of daily life. A place of safety where you can begin to clear whatever you have taken on from others. It is a place to re-discover all that is YOU and get in alignment with the flow of your desires & dreams.

Getting grounded and making the body safe is the first step. When you are grounded, releasing all you have taken on and focusing on the flow of energy you can effortlessly move into your INNER SANCTUARY. Your own personal place of peace & calm. There is a true joy in feeling YOUR energy flowing in YOUR body! This is how you care for your spirit! It’s how you heal, rejuvinate and access the unique essence that is your true self.

As I mentioned in the beginning, the holiday’s are quickly approaching (in the States Thanksgiving is merely 2 weeks away) and it will be even more important to find time to care for ourselves.  We will be inundated with  added obligations from family & friends. It can be an overwhelming and stressful time for many. When you have the tools* and take time to care for your spirit, you will experience more joy and the true spirit of the holidays!~Shine Your Light~Debbie
