With this New Moon in Leo, we open up to new beginnings.
We often talk about new beginnings as a purely positive thing. Yes, change can be welcome and exciting. But what we don’t always talk about is the intensity that we feel when we enter into a new space.
This is uncharted territory. This is a brand new world. This is the unknown.
What happens when we release the expectations that we have of what is coming next? What happens when, instead of clinging to the past or what we’ve known before, we choose to open our hands wide and surrender to the process? What happens when we free ourselves from fear and leap into the unknown?
Adjusting to this present moment feels like a baby deer trying to walk on wobbly legs. What IS this place? What are we moving toward?
To go through immense growth and change is to acknowledge and allow all these uncomfortable feelings. In this space of discomfort, there is nothing to fix. Nothing is wrong. It is safe simply to be, to exist in this space of not-yet-knowing.
Running from the feelings, denying them, or trying to keep them down only intensifies and prolongs the process. We are each being made uncomfortable right now in our own unique way. Find the root of the discomfort and you find what needs to be integrated within you.
We do not make the discomfort go away, we adapt and build our tolerance within this space. We learn to find peace and calm from within, regardless of what is happening around us. We learn to accept ourselves and our process, no matter what it looks like.
It is safe to be yourself. It is safe to embrace your path. It is safe to FEEL everything that is coming up.
No, you will not be dragged down by it. Yes, it will open you to depths and heights that you have never gone before.
Leaning into the discomfort is the key to opening this new beginning. It is the dark, unknown, sometimes arduous path that leads you directly THROUGH to the other side.
Through to your true self. Through to your healing. Through to your abundance. Through to your inner peace, your heart-centered purpose, your absolute bliss of living.
To feel the depth of our joy, we must first be able to feel the depth of our pain. You cannot numb one side of the spectrum without numbing the other.
Leo's bold, open-hearted courage supports us in embracing the opportunities that are being presented to us right now.
What you've always wanted is right in front of you.
In this wide open moment, who do you become? What do you choose to embrace? How do you open more deeply into each and every moment in order to emerge glowing from the fires of your transformation, fully changed?
