The journey home always begins with an ending whatever form that might take. It usually involves loss of some sort.
There are three distinct milestones on the journey, each with its own markers in the road.
Together we can explore these and understand the cyclical nature of change and transformation,
and how these experiences lead us to align with who are are meant to be, and our purpose for being here.
This is the journey back home, to our source.
What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from ~ TS Eliot
There are two ways to have an ending – the easy and the hard way. Adapting to change comes with time and experience. Once you recognise an ending for what it is, the more equipped you are.
Endings are all about surrender, releasing the old and making room for the new to take its place.
It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure ~ Joseph Campbell
We almost always enter the void after an ending. It’s a period of waiting for the new to make itself known. If we use this time wisely, we can start to heal from our loss and regroup.
When you emerge from the void, you are changed. Everything has shifted and you’re no longer the same.
A key element of the void is letting go. I call this bin bags at dawn! It’s often cathartic to declutter and clear your physical space, as well as your mental space.
