Moving from Darkness to Light

As a counselor, I work with children and help them learn how to “go with the flow” and transition through various activities within and between classes.  It wasn’t until I began to think about all of the transitions that they go through during the day…from home to school, from one parents house

to another, from subject to subject, from play time to work time, from school back to home and their neighborhood, etc….that I realized that they experience so many transitions in a day and most times have not been given the tools and/or the space to express how they are experiencing these transitions.  This led me to think about the number of transitions that we all go through in a day, week, month, and/or year, and the mind-body-spirit responses and reactions to these transitions that are occurring.

In one year, I have experienced births, deaths, job change, career change, new talents, relationship changes, etc.  Even at By The Spirit, we have transitioned from activating, partnering, fortifying, growing, to being open, and we are about to transition again.  The number of transitions one can experience and continue to “LIVE” through is truly amazing as are the range of emotions that can come with transitions…excitement, grief, anxiousness, nervousness, happiness, confusion, etc.  However, the clearer and more conscious we are of the transitions we are experiencing, and the more we allow Spirit to help and guide us through these transitions, the better able we are to proactively respond to these transitions so that we can experience them in a healthy manner.

As you take a moment and reflect on where you are in life, where you are going, and what is happening around you, I encourage you to be conscious and respond to these transitions as an expression of the fluidity of life and an opportunity to recognize the mind-body-spirit connection.

I look forward to hearing your stories of how you effectively and healthily respond to the transitions in your life.

God Bless and Continue to Live By the Spirit.
