If we have been facing our excavated wounds and have scraped out the bottom of the barrel in recent months, we may find ourselves enjoying the expanding space within as we set out on yet another adventure within the space/time continuum.

There is the opportunity to sit back inside the rawness of self and live more peacefully with the truth that has surfaced and taken over. If we are still in battle with our scars, let us stop wrestling demons in the way that we have in the past. A gentler but firm approach is needed when transitioning on such a massive level. 

All is not what we think and the more we can get used to the rug being swept out from beneath our feet, the better and faster we can move forward. If we haven't figured it out already, we are being trained to find comfort within our deepest discomfort. Let us use the magic of this death season to question what is and to keep an open mind to our experience. There is always more to be seen and understood and this knowing can keep us in a balanced state of neutrality, which is essential to sustaining our health on every level.

Let us not assume we know what is yet to be discovered. Let us assume the plan is much bigger than we can imagine and seek trust in this wholly. There is always room to change one's mind. There is always room to head in another direction and there is no wrong way. Let us remind ourselves of our options, no matter how slim they may seem. Let us remember that when they seem slim, this in of itself is a gift we can ask further questions of. Let us seek the unknown within what we have already made our minds up about. Let us seek the magick within what seems mundane. There is always more. Let us use this knowing to propel us forward with drive, passion, fascination and wonder. 

Let us not be discouraged but rather question if there is something we have missed or could learn or better understand. Let us not forget our power lies in our flexibility and willingness to navigate the waters of past and present with as much internal ease and curiosity as possible. Let us let go of what is dying and allow for the mysteries to come to enchant AND challenge. Let us understand challenge as our greatest opportunity. Let us dance inside both these places and find heart for all in between.

Let us trust and find perfection in the chaos of the universe's plan. Let us remember the great intelligence available to us when we listen and allow ourselves to be vulnerable. Let us remember that in staying within our knowing that we truly do not know, we align with this perfection and give up our needs for things outside of our control. These only drain our good energies and leave us vulnerable to unhelpful forces. This is not an invitation to feel bad/guilty/shamed if we find ourselves stuck in pattern, but rather to take a step back and question in deep curiosity the pieces of our patterns we are most 'sure of'.

Let us stay strong of heart while we continue our dancing between realities and timelines and know that more is always on it's way. If our soul is infinite then death is nothing to be afraid of. Welcome it with the understanding of its essentialness.
