If you, like a lot of us evolutionary agents, have been feeling weird lately, uncomfortable in your skin, your world and your relationships – especially with your self, you are not alone. The period between who you were and who you are evolving into can sometimes feel like limbo land.
It can be hard to navigate this unknown, untethered to the past or future, terrain, when we are so used to strumming the same notes of old thoughts and behaviors. For example, if we are prone to strumming only 2 notes in our song: one note of victomhood and the other note of righteous indignation for most of our lives, then on the way out of that song and into the new tune of empowerment and truth, we find ourselves in a period of transitional silence. The caterpillar that is not yet a butterfly, in it’s pupal stage, called a chrysalis, is just as important and beautiful as any other phase of it’s metamorphosis.
The space between the old song and the new song can be quite challenging and uncomfortable, because we have yet to experience the new notes of empowerment, and what’s left is silence. At first there might be a tendency to fill this “void” with food, or busy-ness, or drama, but the hook isn’t there anymore so we are not fulfilled in the same “old” way.
When we pause long enough and feel into the silence, no longer trying to outrun the discomfort of the unknown, we can appreciate the beauty and completeness of the chrysalis. When we ALLOW and recognize the beauty and joy within emptiness, the range of music that lives within us will emerge, and a new song will be sung. This “limbo land” is rich with opportunity to sit in the great mystery, and appreciate reaching INward instead of reaching OUTward. It is PARTY time in LIMBO land! While it is OFTEN the LAST thing I want to do in this seemingly empty state, it is always THE thing I need to do, which is NOTHING, which is simply being in the weirdness and sitting with what is…yes, sitting – MEDITATING. These are the exact moments that our souls beckon us to come home and nest, like a homing pigeon finding its way back after a long journey. Take rest for 1 minute, for 5 minutes, for as long as you will ALLOW.
We welcome you to join us at MoYo for playtime in LIMBO LAND, where we are also enjoying a metamorphosis and continue to find the beauty between the notes.
