Right in front of her
Lie the answers
They’ve been there all along
And yet sometimes the easiest things
Are also the hardest,
Pressing on her heart
Like a heavy blanket of grief,
The knowing what to do
And the not wanting to do it

I’ve had a “liminal” situation for a couple of years now that has created an ebb and flow of feelings: grief, hope, anger, excitement, frustration, connection, inadequacy.
It’s not a life or death situation. Nevertheless, it’s taxed my energy, which has in turned taxed other areas of my life.
It’s been a constant thorn in my side.
All because I’ve allowed it to be.
To be fair to myself, there are some aspects that are definitely out of my control and that I’ve tried with little success to change.
I’ve talked to a lot of people to try to clear my head and the energy I carry around it. I get regular massage and energy work to move the stuckness.
And it’s not all bad; in fact, there are many positives about the situation.
Still, I persist in carrying it like a weight rather than an opportunity.
I work with people in similar situations and I know what I would tell them.
Actually, I wouldn’t tell them anything.
I would work with them to clear the energetic blocks and then I would share with them what their energy is telling them.
And I’d help them formulate simple actions that support the shift and that create an anchor while they’re in this liminal space of transition.
I don’t have a “me” in my life that I work with in that exact way, but I am immensely grateful for all the people who have listened to me, given advice, offered encouragement, held space, helped shift the energy.
Sometimes the answer is right there, we just need the energy to shift.
Who is helping you shift today?
