Each time we embark on an intentional or unintentional transformation or change, there is always that space and time called transition. In a perfect dance it is the moment when one is suspended in mid-air, or when two partners are reaching for each other, yet there is not contact. It is the top of a deep inhale, the second before the exhale. It is a time of anticipation, and where one remains fairly still to be sure not to miss the next beat.
Mindfulness: What word or words come to mind when you imagine this suspension in time? Excitement, trust, hopeful, focus, beauty, freedom? Perhaps that is how you are feeling today.
Today you may be suspended in mid-air, but you are also doing it! Bring to mind or write down the word you chose from Day 3 that describes how will you will feel when you reach the goal or intention you set. How will you feel when that moment arrives when you touch that hand or the solid ground below and raise your arms in triumph? When you finally have that clarity or focus? When you land that job, or find that partner, or lose those pounds or are truly done with that unhealthy habit. What are you feeling? Feel that along with pride in yourself for taking this big step and feel the excitement, trust, hope, focus, beauty and freedom that comes with the exhilarating suspension and the faithful unknowns.
Today you are swinging and twirling, waiting to exhale, to leap or land, to catch or throw, to begin or end. You are in mid-air. And remember: this as your show! it is beautiful and fascinating so just enjoy it.Continue reading “Day 5 – Yoga & Meditation – Transition”
