Endings Also Mean Beginnings

So, it’s that time of the week again – time to write another blog post, and I’ve got nothing. No, really. I’ve been trying to come up with something all day, and inspiration has just not come anywhere near me. How ironic that I am working on my throat chakra and I feel like I have nothing to say! I apologize in advance for the rambling nature of this post.

This past week has been filled with back-to-school for my boys, and supporting all the folks in my community who are struggling with illnesses, both physical and mental.

I’ve even been struggling a bit myself. So many people are having such a hard time, and I feel my energy stores are being tapped out. Not to mention I fell behind in my school work, and then I felt guilty about that, so that didn’t help my energy levels either.

I don’t know that I have any words of wisdom for you this week. Just know that if you are being challenged right now, you are not alone. There is a major energetic shift going on right now, and it has to do with endings. I’ve been feeling the grief that comes with all endings for a while.

spiral upIt seems familiar, like we’ve done this before. We’re moving to the next level of the video game. It generally gets more challenging just before you level up. We’re not moving around a circle, we’re moving up a spiral.

I’m noticing a change in myself about it since I first wrote about it, though. Even though there are endings, I am already beginning to look forward to the beginnings that will come next.

I know there is still quite a bit of time before the transition is complete. We are moving into the dying time of year, the hibernation, the conserving of energy. The days are visibly shorter, the air is cooler, and the leaves are falling from the trees. The new growth of spring is still months away. And since I am aware of how my life’s cycles mirror the cycles of nature, that means that the new growth in my life may still be some time away.

But it is coming. I know it is coming. And I look forward to the beginnings with excitement rather than looking back on the endings with sorrow.

There you go. I guess I did have something to say after all.
