After Expansion, Comes Expulsion

In the week post-telesummit, there is so much that I’d like to write, but I just don’t feel like it right now.  I had discussed the waxing and waning of energy with one of the Lotus Blossoming Telesummit speakers, Marja West, last Sunday and she felt the contraction of energy was part of the natural process of life, like the waxing and waning of yin and yang.

She felt that a contraction of energy after a great expansion was part of a purging process.  To make way for the new, you have to purge the old.  She said that rather than ride out the cycle, she prefers to observe.  By doing this, she experiences more of a middle ground and less of the volatile highs and lows.

I like her perspective.

In the past, I would judge myself for taking a step backwards after moving forwards, but if I view it as a natural rhythm, then it’s a non-issue.  I have learned to simply be quiet and allow the cycle to pass.  I’m in the purging phase right now.  Resting and going through some old habits as I integrate the new and expel the old.

It seems fitting that we are visiting family right now.  This is where I was when my telesummit journey began in earnest.  This is where I am when my journey has ended–the telesummit journey, that is.  I have just begun an amazing new adventure in my life.  I am such a different person today than I was three months ago.

The change was rapid, monumental and completely transformational.  If I choose to eat some cheezies, watch wedding reality shows, read Chatelaine magazine and buy some teen lit on werewolves, I will just enjoy it.
