Have you ever heard of “liminality?” The root of this word comes from limen, meaning a threshold or border between two things…an almost in-between space. A space where one thing or situation is left behind, and the next one hasn’t yet arrived and is not known to you.
We experience these in-between spaces anytime we experience a major transition in our lives, and most of us do NOT like living in there! We are uneasy not knowing what’s next, the uncertainty of what to DO next.
Perhaps you are even in such a liminal space right now, in between relationships and wanting to do anything to escape those feelings of loneliness and ambiguity (especially now during the holidays).
I may surprise you with what I have to say about that.
When you find yourself sitting in that liminal space – I don’t want you to fight against it. I want you to consider that discomfort and think of it as a gift.
Surprised? Let me explain.
This is a perfect opportunity for you to take a break from all the “doing” for once. Especially for high-powered women who tend to emphasize their masculine energy, it can be difficult to just…BE. But I urge you to do just that. Welcome the uncertainty and the unknown and look at it as an active space for exploration – a time for you to grow while reflecting on what you left behind and considering the possibilities yet to come.
Instead of seeing liminal space as a state of limbo, see it as a space of rest and lean into it (even if you’re kicking and screaming as you do so!).
This is a time when you can reflect and learn to really hear your intuitive heart. Think of it not as a stressful place to be, but as a refuge…a time to be kind to yourself and reset. We ALL experience liminality in our lives from time to time. The next time it happens to you, try to embrace it, and wait for your heart to speak to you. The messages you receive could change your life!
Hope this helped! Love you!
