‘The liminal space – a space where you have left something behind, yet you are not yet fully in something else. It’s a transition space.’ Read more here. This is one of my favourite spaces. The in between, the cross over.
Have you found yourself here? Do you honour this space? Gently accept that a time, a part of you, a way of being is or has passed. It’s the place of letting go, of accepting change, of venturing into what’s waiting. How do you honour it?
It’s beyond the growth space because the flow is forward and you recognise it. I think to move beyond here means you’ve grown. It’s forwards toward a new burst of energy, to where there is something novel to learn or discover. The liminal space reminds us that there is no such thing as permanence, that stagnation and resistance as a way of thinking and being hinders our way forward.
The photo above was the time we were leaving Ireland after three months of living on this street under this sunrise. We were about to travel in our camper for months on end. It was one of my most beautiful visits into the liminal space. It’s where I learnt to honour this time. To really appreciate it.
I go gently. I step into what I feel I need. Grounding, clearing and cleansing. Some deep YIN practice, a massage to knead out any toxic left over stagnant energy, a late afternoon roasting what’s left in the fridge, music, time away from conversations, time in conversations, savouring every one of these moments because the liminal space when felt can be a spectacular place to visit. No one crosses a road with their eyes closed and senses off right.
