Have you ever felt as though things were changing so quickly and radically that you wouldn’t be able to keep up with the growth? Right now, many people on the planet are experiencing this level of transformative healing.
Consider the story of a client who wants to sell her house. When I arrive, I discover half-packed boxes and randomly-placed furniture scattered throughout the living space. Furthermore, my client has injured her shoulder. Obviously, I have entered a transition zone.
When I look at the energy of the house, it spins like a centrifuge, separating and releasing the old ways that no longer serve my client or the house. While spirit can let go of energy instantaneously, the body releases in time and space, and can get tired.
The owner of the house is re-vamping herself and her life, at both a physical and a spiritual level. Because so much energy is releasing so quickly, her relationship to the physical things in her life is in extreme flux. She is in a death and rebirth cycle.
If this sounds familiar to you, it may be useful to return to the image of the centrifuge. It is a great form of release and a great way to re-own your space since most on-lookers will not put their energy into that kind of current. Notice that during a centrifuge-style release process, there are two phenomenologically distinct places to have one’s awareness—in the center, watching the process, and in the spinning motion, being the effect of the process. In this case, my client spins as she packs. Her injury, though, provides her with permission to step out of the spin and trust that she will land safely and transformed when she is ready.
A friend of mine, who is particularly good at allowing growth into her life, recently compared this style of change to riding a tilt-a-whirl at an amusement park. She said that the ride is the most fun when it spins rapidly and uncontrollably. She muses that perhaps the same attitude is advantageous in life. Instead of trying to stop the spin, it may be wise to enjoy the ride. I would add that it might also be fun to remember that we can step off of the ride into the calm center whenever we need to regain our balance (regardless of what is happening around us).
Some people never experience this level of change because it requires a deep trust to be able to let go to the extent necessary to allow the spirit to heal in such a radical fashion. So, if things feel as though they are collapsing around you, congratulate yourself for having the courage to trust in transformation—and if you can find your center, you may enjoy stepping out of the spin, giving your body some time to process, and letting yourself land safely and transformed in your own time.
